OK Jackson, now you’ve gotten me excited. He he he. I am quite confident that it is not faked because I have seen circumcision imagery on the walls of temples in Egypt myself. I also have reputable Egyptology reference books at home with similar images. The scene that I have posted is just one of many.
The Egyptian king list can be found HERE. Its validity is extremely accurate, being literally written on the walls of virtually every Egyptian tomb. Amenhotep IV (or Ahkenaten) was Pharaoh from roughly 1350-1334 BC. The time of the Exodus, according to Exodus, is usually calculated within the span of a few decades after.
During his reign, Ahkenaten officially changed Egypt’s pagan religion to a monotheistic one that placed a single Sun God, which he called “The Aten” as the sole god of the universe. He moved the capitol to Tel El Amarna. The site of this capitol can be visited and the web site for it is HERE. Immediately upon Akhenaten’s death, the previous pagan religion was reinstated, the capitol was returned to its previous location, and much of Akhenaten’s monuments to The Aten were defaced. Ahkenaten was subsequently branded as the “heretic king” in later dynasties.
So, there is a clear chronological connection between the last remnants of this cult and the Exodus. Also, according to “The Bible” the exodus involved the crossing of the Red Sea (which supposedly parted) and not a crossing of the geographical land connection to Israel in the North. This places the point of departure precisely within the vicinity of where residual monotheistic sun cults were active. The dance around the golden calf corresponded to common dances around golden calves made in pagan Egypt in honor of the Apis bulls and/or the bull goddess Hathor. These clearly would have been deemed “false gods” by monotheistic sun worshipers. Here is a picture of a “golden calf.” Such artifacts abound in modern day Egypt.
It strikes me as the most plausible theory that the jewish religion began as something of a splinter of this original Aten cult.
