Passover is a celebration on genocide, the deaths of the Egyptian first-born.
How cool is that?
In the narrative of the Exodus, the Bible tells that God inflicted ten plagues upon the Egyptians before Pharaoh would release his Hebrew slaves, with the tenth plague being the killing of every firstborn male, from the Pharaoh's son to the firstborn of the dungeon captive, to the firstborn of cattle. The Hebrews were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a spring lamb and, upon seeing this, the spirit of the Lord passed over these homes, hence the term "passover". When Pharaoh freed the Hebrews, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread to rise. In commemoration, for the duration of Passover no leavened bread is eaten, for which reason it is called "The Festival of the Unleavened Bread". Matzo (flat unleavened bread) is the primary symbol of the holiday.
Were Jews ever really slaves in Egypt, or is Passover a myth? Where is the real proof - archeological evidence, state records and primary sources?
One of the biggest events of the Jewish calendar is predicated upon reminding the next generation every year of how the Egyptians were their cruel slave-masters, in a bondage that never happened.
The reality is that there is no evidence whatsoever that the Jews were ever enslaved in Egypt. Yes, there's the story contained within the bible itself, but that's not a remotely historically admissible source. I'm talking about real proof; archeological evidence, state records and primary sources. Of these, nothing exists.
It is hard to believe that 600,000 families (which would mean about two million people) crossed the entire Sinai without leaving one shard of pottery (the archeologist's best friend) with Hebrew writing on it. It is remarkable that Egyptian records make no mention of the sudden migration of what would have been nearly a quarter of their population, nor has any evidence been found for any of the expected effects of such an exodus; such as economic downturn or labor shortages. Furthermore, there is no evidence in Israel that shows a sudden influx of people from another culture at that time. No rapid departure from traditional pottery has been seen, no record or story of a surge in population.
One would think that after wandering around the Sinai peninsula for forty years without GPS, Moses and his mob would have left something in the sand for archeologists. No pottery is found to support the possible existence of one million people wandering around.
The destination of the Exodus was the land of Canaan, the promised land. At the time of the Exodus, Egyptian power extended to the Greecian islands. The Sinai and land of Canaan was under Egyptian control at the time and there is no Egyptian documetation of any such mass migration.
The funny part of passover is that Yahweh could identify you as a jew only if you were circumcised. Yahweh was a penis inspector.
In Exodus we have an account of the manner in which Jehovah delivered the Jews from Egyptian bondage. We now know that the jews were never enslaved by the Egyptians: that the entire story is a fiction. We know this because there is not found in Hebrew a word of Egyptian origin, and there is not found in the language of the Egyptians a word of Hebrew origin. This being so, we know that the Hebrews and Egyptians could not have lived together for hundreds of years.
As the Passover myth is discredited over time, the jews are busy replacing it with the the Holocaust Religion . They just have to maintain the illusion that they are victims.
