    And I do think you will now find that almost all Israeli archeologists accept the evidence about the Exodus. This is a tribute to their integrity and professionalism.

    And until 1833 all the world accepted institutional slavery as part of the natural order, and so in biblical times they also took institutional slavery for granted, including Jesus.
    I'm afraid all you got here are blind assertions, no evidence, your final point is tenuous indeed and very difficult to provide with any basis other than that of an assertion.

    The foundation myth of Judaism is the relationship and covenant between Yahweh/God and man/Jews.

    Exodus is not a lie and I struggle to think why anyone would want to make it so, other than a hope to make out the entire bible to be a lie, either because they wish to deny belief in God or the ethics within, which secular ethics hope to be rival and can not.

    The Exodus is not a lie, it is a part of the mythos of Judaism and so part of the mythos of the West.

    It is crass to ask whether the Exodus actually occured but we live in a time of universal literacy and so we are inclined to be literal, and ask literal questions about the historical Jesus and the historical Exodus. And I think it is fair to say that such literalism is crass in matters of religion, literature and art. And I suspect you would agree with me in saying the literal interpretation of the Bible is crass.

    However we are rapidly moving from the Age of universal literacy to the electric Age where mythos and metaphor find their natural home.

    And as a good Catholic you must know that your church has not adhered to a literal interpretation of the Bible. And so we could say your church is psychologically prepared for the electric Age which is upon us.

    Last night I was trying to explain to my mom that Wiccans are not the same thing as Satan worshipers. It's probably good that we were interrupted pretty early in the conversation.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Yes. If they were real they would be the coolest (and most influential) of sinister dieties ever. Molag Bal would make an S & M freak out of all of us.
