Re: Techy Evidence, Etc
In the story of the Exodus, didn't the Egyptians have military outposts throughtout the desert? The story states the Israelits left, the Egyptians gave chase but could never catch up. Wouldn't the Israelites have run into Egyptian military forces constantly anyway?

We can say that the story assumes that Egypt is relatively weak and seems to have no presence within Canaan by the time of Joshua, so it seems likely to me that Egypt would not have remote bases in the desert at that point.
Wasn't Canaan under Egyptian control at the time of the supposed Exodus? If so, then the roads and trade routes were also. Which means the Egyptian military had to be involved. I also read that the supposed 40 year wandering "area" had quite the few military outposts.
Do I have my timing incorrect?

Re: Exodus
What time frame do most Christians give for the Exodus?
What about Ex. 1:11 -it mentions the children of Israel being used as slave labor to build the city of Raamses.

That is not my opinion. The bible is a record of human history not found anywhere else, it provides answers to questions not found anywhere else. It is in harmony with historical facts ...
Creation account? Global flood? Exodus? Timelines of certain people not lining up with the Biblical account (Philistines as one example), Herod slaughtering the innocents? Roman census? Dead walking out of their graves? Romans releasing a murderer to appease a crowd? Do false prophecies count (ignoring the typical mental gymnastics apologists need in order to make the problems disappear regarding prophecy, ie fall of Tyre)?
These are just a few I can think of.
