Question: Who was Moses?

Answer: Moses was the father of Judaism. The Moses who is talked about in the Bible did actually exist, but many of the deeds the Bible attributes to him are false.

Contrary to what is written in the Bible, there was nothing unusual about the conception or birth of Moses. In actuality, Moses was probably half Egyptian and half Jewish, the child of a Jew and either the Pharaoh's daughter (unbeknownst to the Pharaoh, of course) or one of his daughter's attendants. Moses was raised in the Pharaoh's court, received the best education possible and mastered the intricacies of Egyptian religious philosophy. Moses was highly regarded, and if all had gone well it is somewhat probable that he would have become Pharaoh. However, he maintained his ties to his Jewish heritage, killed one of the guards on the Pharaoh's staff and had to escape for his life. He found refuge among his Jewish lineage and used his intricate knowledge of African Christianity to morph Judaism, a religion that would give his people, the Jews, the confidence and strength they needed to free themselves from domination by the Pharaoh.

There is a great deal of misinformation surrounding Moses, but Moses' existence, upbringing and leadership of the Jews are historically verifiable occurrences. When one reads lies such as the splitting of the Red Sea, one must remember that religions revolve around faith, and that faith rests on the cornerstones of magic and mystery. The same is true of claims that "God" communicated with him. All religious ideologues claim, at one time or another, that "God" communicates with them. Individuals who refuse to allow magic, mystery and faith to rid them of their common sense and ability to reason realize that such claims are bogus.

However, the facts that the Red Sea did not split and Moses was not able to communicate with "God" do not negate the fact that Moses did exist. Nor do they negate the fact that much of what is talked about in the book of Exodus did occur. Moses did motivate his people and lead them to the "promised land." However, he did not do it the way people have been told it was done.
