I agree that it could be a possibility that the Jews ended in Egypt somehow...but! Not going for the splitting of the sea-impossible achievement...cuz that sort of thing would still be happening today...but it ain't, And the lie about baby Moses floating in a basket and found by an Egyptian Princess is one of the stories you get from Disney...so that's why it's hard to believe cuz they are attempting to romanticize it while monsterizing Egyptians.
And Moses? Egyptians were notorious for honoring high achievers displayed in monuments, temples, statures etc. Even if Moses was an enemy...somewhere on those walls....it would be some kind of story of his presence. The major thing for the Jews then and now? They have no homeland. They have no legacy of tribe existence. So they had to make up stories about their culture since almost every European country was banked on either ousting them or eliminating them. The Jews don't want the world to know the reason why. I know why-it's an old haunting fact. That's why the Jews have gone to lengths including social strategies [over the last hundred of so years..through media and propaganda ] to cover it up....yet the "reason" has always been in view for all to see. Continues to be in view. And this reason is why Israel? Will never be at rest. But!
