Did the biblical 7 plagues of Egypt really happen in ancient times?

Of course they did! It says so in the Bible and nobody can ever prove otherwise. Present day conventional Egyptian chronology is unreliable so attempts to co-relate Egyptian history as now written with Biblical events are not worth much. Nevertheless, all the plagues are similar to phenomenon known from Egyptian history. The background to the Biblical story is consistent to what we know about ancient Egypt. In fact the Biblical Narrative is the hinge upon which all known details can be supported. It is the Bible that givens them validity and relevance.
