I watched the exodus piece on the history channel....and it had a lot of really cool graphics and I guess having the show exec produced by the guy who did Titanic was appropriate...
Seemed blatant to me that the show was intent on presenting seemingly research supported data bites specially arrayed to support the historic accuracy of the exodus account in the bible.
It was distubing to not see any comparison of the biblical patriarchs to the 18th dynasty pharohs.
I thought that the connection between the Santorini Volcanic explosion and the plagues was very well done and plausible up until they went into that business about the first born males being suffucated by carbon dioxide because they slept on specially made beds. So ridiculous....seems like the history channel is under some direct political pressure to underwrite reserach intent on supporting the historical integrity of the bible....what a shame.
