Scientifically, there is no conclusive evidence saying that the Israelites were even in Egypt, were ever enslaved or ever wandered in the Sinai wilderness for 40 years. " In 1999, an Israeli archeologist, Ze'ev Herzog of Tel Aviv University, set off a furor in Israel by writing in a popular magazine that stories of the patriarchs were myths and that neither the Exodus nor Joshua's conquests ever occurred. In the hottest controversy today, Herzog also argued that the united monarchy of David and Solomon, described as grand and glorious in the Bible, was at best a small tribal kingdom."
