It seems you lot ("we") are all feeling left out or neglected?
So sorry about that, however I assure youse all, no insult was intended.
If it is any consolation, you seem to be doing nicely already in the self congratulation area!
Thank you for titling a thread that elicited interesting non fictional, factual, contributions.
I suspect the real issue is you would like some direct discussion on your OP?
When I was far more active here, long ago, I had noticed some of your other posts/threads and confess to having some curiousity for why so many try to link little known very ancient archaelogical Egypt with the much vaguer stories of the Old Testament.
However , your OP I can only see/percieve a list of question marks and conflicting contradictory conjectures??? How can anyone comment on such?, other than those who have already highlighted how little archaeolgically is known about Imhotep.
As you are probably aware there are a few names in OT that cn be supported by external reference but very late such as Darius I, or Nebacanezzer (Sp?) etc as many scholars now consider OT to be most likely complied in current form in late post Babylon captivity era.
I would be interested if you could provide any conclusive evidence of a "Hebrew nation" in captivity in ancient OK Egypt?
If OT is believed by you all to be factual then how could you possibly avoid the detailed ages of key characters and pedigrees that add up to a timeline far short of 4th Dynasty Eygpt?
Religious "beliefs" are very dangerous things as they tend not to need (but rather shun) any factual evidencial corroboration.
So I praise you (all) for searching for some corroborative archaelogical support, at least it seems you have avoided in part the religious trap of believing something is factual and true because some unknown person(s) wrote it into a magic book!
Hope that makes you feel a little less neglected
