The exodus occured look up habiru or hyksos--Java7837 03:40, 21 February 2007 (UTC) a outspoken few less than 10% think it didn't occur--Java7837 03:40, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Reread the article. It never said that it did not occur. What it did say is that the details of the event might or might not be historically founded--and, as you pointed out, that there might be some who contest that it happened at all (and 10% is enough to contest, although I think that number is much higher).
Most importantly, it is the manner in which it took place that could be debated on a lack of historical evidence. Are the 10 Plagues historical? That is near to impossible to say with certainty, and it is certainly not the place of Wikipedia to make a judgment one way or the other. Read the article's quote by Rabbi Neil Gillman which sums up all of this very nicely. Best--Rojerts 18:20, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Actually the plagues can be explained by historical records and science except for the last one--Java7837 22:16, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
