This, if directed at David Rohl, is sheer libel. Let me quote from p.235 
of "A Test of Time", well before the "Now I am going to show you the 
statue of Joseph" part:

A Change of Evidence

At this point I need to make a statement concerning the character of 
this fourth section of the book. ... It is important, therefore, to 
stress that the nature of the evidence is about to change. ...

In other words, Rohl is admitting without quite using the words that the 
rest of his book is a speculative reconstruction based on unreliable 
sources like Manetho.

Meanwhile, Marianne, I haven't noticed many question marks in your 
recent postings, just quite a lot of statements like "definitely" and 
"No doubt about it".
