What are we doing with this: Mass Exodus. Redirect, merge or seperate article?[edit]

The instance in which a large group of people, animals, or objects attempt to leave, evacutate or move to a different location.

  • Some famous exodus include the jewish exodus from Egypt to the promised lands.
  • Refugees ussally partake in exodus from troubled lands.


It’s not an exodus unless it’s a mass exodus.

Redirect, merdge or seperate article?

Che!

Book of Exodus[edit]

Is there a reason why the name of this article does not start with "Book of"? All the other articles in the Old Testament category start that way, except for four of the five books of the Torah. If there are no objections, I'll have it changed.

Leave as is[edit]

Because of its controversy there is a lot of scope for expanding it, so I believe it should not be merged.

Neutrality Dispute in Section Genre and sources[edit]

This section does not appear neutral. I'm not a Christian, but this section talks in an atheist point of view without saying that the section content is how others view it. Seems to also call the book a myth, which is not a neutral statement. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:CEAE:5FB0:C88C:9A5E:1888:FA23 (talk) 07:55, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

No, it does not reflect an atheist pov. You can be Jewish or Christian and still accept that the Book of Exodus isn't literally true, and you don't seem to understand what mythology means. Take a look at our article on the subject a Mythology. Jewish and Christian theologians discuss biblical mythology without being atheists. You also deleted a whole section with no explanation. And no one was writing "history" at that time. Dougweller (talk) 10:54, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

This page has a very clear Baptist bias, with the themes part being extremely so. The fact that all the sources come from a Southern Baptist website isn't much better. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.164.13.135 (talk) 01:03, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
