The rest of my original message didn't post for some reason...

I question the historicity of the 10 Plagues of Egypt and am putting together a case for that argument. I've only just begun my research today; does anyone have any sources or information (for both sides as I like to try and be as objective as possible.)

I would think it would be more obviously recorded if all the firstborn sons happened to die on the same day one year. I'd start there and look for links...

Thanks. :-) I've considered that as well as the fact that someone somewhere would have recorded the loss of such a great number of the Egyptian army, the fact that such a great number of slaves escaped/left the country, that many of the plagues would have had an enormous economic impact on Egypt (locusts destroying crops, disease and tainted water killing livestock and fish, boils devastating the workforce.)

You're forgetting to look at it at this perspective, if u lost ur king, army and slave force to a non existing entity (to the Egyptians), would you record it? Do communist countries tell of losses to their people? Egypt was a monarchial nation who lost their Pharaoh and first born son ie The heir.

And that is recorded where? Ahh I thought so. It would take 3 months for the last of the 4 million people to reach where the first started. Have fun with your book.
