2.2. Strength of the proof

Exodus is a book that contains much of what the Jewish faith and the Christian faith revere and even the Islamic faith revere..

I have shown, beyond a reasonable doubt, that all the key events presented in the book of Exodus could never have happened and that Moses is a fictional character.

The evidence that I used meets the legal test for admissibility of expert testimony.

The legal test in the U. S. for admissibility of expert testimony is the Daubert guidelines

The Daubert guidelines state that a trial court should consider five factors in determining "whether the testimony's underlying reasoning or methodology is scientifically valid":
(1) whether the theory or technique in question can be and has been tested; archeology - yes.

(2) whether it has been subjected to peer review and publication; archeology - yes

(3) its known or potential error rate; hmm... not sure

(4) the existence and maintenance of standards controlling its operation; archeology - yes

(5) whether it has attracted widespread acceptance within the relevant scientific community archeology - yes

I'm not saying that MY words meet the above criteria, but the evidence I used meets the above criteria.

Most of my evidence is from the scientific field of archeology. I also used circumstantial evidence.

The central idea in Exodus is Moses.

Here we are introduced to a hero figure of the old testament. The Moses of the Bible is larger than life. The Moses of the Bible is a diplomat negotiating with the pharaoh; he is a lawgiver bringing the Ten Commandments, the Covenant, down from Sinai. The Moses of the Bible is a military man leading the Israelites in battles. He's the one who organizes Israel's judiciary. He's also the prophet par excellence and a quasi-priestly figure involved in offering sacrifices and setting up the priestly complex, the tabernacle. There's virtually nothing in terms of national leadership that Moses doesn't do.

 

The Qur'an mentions him more frequently than any other prophet. So, there is no doubt that Moses is important to all major faiths. We hear about Moses in the next 3 books of the bible; Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. Exodus is a theme that's mentioned over and over again in various parts of the Bible

 

Another concept introduced in Exodus is the passover and the parting of the Red Sea..
