I hope my opponent is not going to troll me but judging by his profile picture and previous debates I have little hope that I will have a legitimate opponent, please prove me wrong.

Moses appears to have been compiled from a number of different characters all of which were written about hundreds or thousands of years before Moses was ever conceived of. The character Moses was probably first conceived by the Yahwist's (J source) sometime between 750 BCE and 500 BCE [1]. I will now proceed to list the mythical figures and once living people (often somewhat embellished) who probably are the sources that inspired the Moses character.

That was what I had written so far but my opponents account has now been deleted so I guess I win.
