"Robert Eisenman is Jewish, but from what I have heard about him from Joe Atwill, he is entirely sincere in his search for a greater understanding of Biblical history. He doesn't hide his indignation over the duplicity and intolerance he finds in the Biblical narratives. Yet, the need for duplicity is more logical, if not excusable, when one recognizes the characters as Herodian, as well as the Herodian dilemma within a Roman world. To their credit, the Biblical authors (as well as Josephus) did encode the information needed to reconstruct the actual history and relationships."
You, via your answer above, seem to agree that there are periods of Egyptian history that "overlap" or are "repititious." If I am not correct then tell me why not?
You and your "book" seem to overlap dynasties,but you do not, as it seems, tend to erase the time periods involved?
You see, I tend to see relationshps between the 11th and 12th Egyptian dynasties and the 18 th dynasty that via word names, if nothing else, seem to conclude that they are one in the same!
Merry Christmas/ happy hollidades, happy chanukka, etc.!
NOte that being "politially correct" is not something, I am by nature, easily consumed by!
