That's your take on history, will. You state there is no conclusive archaeological evidence that the Israelites were ever slaves in Egypt and wandered in the wilderness. Well, there is no conclusive evidence that they weren't and didn't. In fact, the available evidence suggests that the historical claims of the Bible are true. Consider that despite the assertions of critics like yourself throughout the course of time that the Bible is historically inaccurate in one or more details, no archaeological evidence has contradicted the truth of God's Word. In fact, archaeological discoveries have only confirmed Biblical accounts.
