Relationships are hard enough as it is without the pressures of meeting his family. “What do I wear? What do I bring? What do I say?” But no matter how many times you bug your boyfriend for dirt, all he says is “don’t worry about it, you’ll do fine,” which is the...

There is no evidence the Hebrews were ever slaves in Egypt or guests in Egypt other than what's in the Bible. It's all myth, it's propaganda that people other than Blacks\Egyptians built the pyramids. As a matter of fact, there is no proof that Jesus actually existed other than what is in the Bible. There is no external history outside of the Bible or records that say anything about Jesus. There is no record outside of the Bible that Moses existed. It's all made up.
