I read his first book. That was enough for me.

"I request that you refute Rohl's evidence in some other manner than just giving your opinion."

Rohl's evidence has been rejected by Egyptology. This is how it really works: If someone has a theory that goes contra what academia has built up over a century, it is up to that party to provide evidence and arguments that are solid and/or convincing. And this happens. Academia doesn't automatically reject all that is revolutionary. But you are putting the proof on the wrong people. Since when it is everyone else's duty to prove every new theory that comes along wrong? Even when it's already old.
