Most Jews had migrated North wards toward Europe and probably had few slaves in Egypt.
For a few million Jews to make exodus at the same time is not probable at all.

From the link you posted, the first comment says:

What a disingenuous halfwit you truly are.
The ”vast majority of Egyptologists”.

agreeing to ”some sort of exodus” is not agreeing to The Exodus as written in the Ild Testament.

19 out of 25 . Were there more Egyptologists at this conference? It seems from the dialogue this was the case.

You really need to read more of the links you refer to so you will embarrass yourself less.

It was hard to find: Springer has it paywalled, and it was hardly worth $99 to pursue this.
However, a combination of Google Scholar and Google Books came through; see my
comments, and a link, above.

...yep, 3 Hebrews, 2 goats and a chicken DOES NOT comprise a mass
Exodus from Egypt.

"There is NO archaeological evidence that
supports the biblical tale of The Exodus.
Absolutely none."

A few more facts about this.

-- Hoeffmeier asked 125 Egyptologists. Only 25 bothered to answer.

-- Hoeffmeier excluded from his survey anyone whose opinion he already knew.

-- He asked the respondants if they had published on the topic. Only
five of the 25 had, and "...none had engaged in a major project".

-- Of the 20 out of 25 who said they had not published on the topic,
the reasons they gave for not having done so was that they had
no expertise, or had no interest in the topic, or it was too
specialized a topic for their area of expertise, or that they
didn't want to get into a debate that was so religiously loaded.
Nonetheless, they offered an answer.

-- Hoeffmeier said he was surprised by the positive results, but
added that "...most gave no evidence of knowledge of the debates
of the past 30 years among Old Testament scholars and biblical
archaeologists on the origins of Israel."

-- He asked two additional questions to give the respondants why
they held the opinions they did, but "many left these questions
blank".

-- "Another theme that came up with some frequency was the recognition
that Egypt may never be able to produce positive archaeological
evidence for the Hebrews in Egypt because there were large numbers
of Semites in Egypt at various times during the Second Millennium B.C.
and it would be impossible to distinguish one group from another."

-- "80 percent [of all asked] were either not interested in matters of biblical
history or felt they lacked the expertise to offer anything
concrete to the origins of Israel debate".


Taking all this together, Hoffmeier's paper hardly strikes me as
overwhelming evidence for the vast majority of all Egyptlogists
agreeing that the exodus was a historical event. Only a self-selected
twenty percent even answered, and of those most had done no significant
research in the area, and in fact "gave no evidence of knowledge of the debates
of the past 30 years" on the topic.
