They did live and embalmd and kept records.What is in despute here?What is in dispute is the claim that we take all historical documents literally except the Bible. We accept that embalming was almost certainly a common practice, but we don't accept EVERYTHING the Egyptians wrote. A lot of their beliefs, which they considered to be literal truth, are today regarded as interesting but silly.The point being, the Bible is not a special case. Historians pretty much regard all historical documents as suspect, and open to questions about how accurate they are and how much they are tinted by the limitations and superstitions of the day.
