"The existence of Moses as well as the veracity of the Exodus story is disputed amongst
archaeologists and Egyptologists, with experts in the field of biblical criticism citing logical inconsistencies,
new archaeological evidence, historical evidence, and related origin myths in Canaanite culture."

ground with his thyrsus, and engraved his laws on two tables of marble. He wanted only to have afflicted Egypt
with ten plagues, to be the perfect copy of Moses.
