Sorry, I just had to share this post from another forum because it was so hilariously pathetic, yet typical-

Okay, for the passer-by readers who might be unaware, according to two books I have by Erik Hornung, Valley of the Kings and Knowledge for the Afterlife, this scene is NOT of the Exodus, it is a scene from the Underworld, the 10th division for the 10th hour of the night. The people in the water are people who died by drowning in the Nile, and Horus is retrieving their regenerated and revived bodies so that they can enjoy the afterlife. The Egyptians believed the source of the Nile was the Nun, the primeval waters from which creation arose, and that a stream of the Nun flowed through the Underworld and out into our world as the Nile. People who drowned in the water and their bodies went missing were feared to not have an afterlife because their corpse could thus not undergo proper mummification and magical funerary spells. This scene, from the tomb of Thutmoses III, was to put such worries to rest, the dead who died by drowning, just like how Osiris drowned, would continue to float down stream and sink in the Nun waters that flowed into the Underworld. The creative power of the Nun waters would restore them to life so that when they washed ashore down below they were already good to go.

But the mere fact that this scene is NOT of the Exodus is made clear from...

That is typical.

Grasping at straws to try and find something, anything, that might be pointed at as evidence for the exodus.

Oh, brother. What can I say other than what you two have already contributed?

Just plain silly.

But do be sure to emphasize that what this imagery does show is "Horus the Shepherd," so to speak, saving his followers and resurrecting them to a new life. So, thanks for the reminder that the Christ myth drew from Egyptian sources.
