Well, I suppose that technically speaking, "one" is a number.  I assume
you're not pulling in Charlton Heston and Cecil B. DeMille too?

The Egytptians were compulsive record keepers -- a good idea in 
a country where the property lines of your most important real
estate get washed away every year.  A country with a formal
system of scribes, and a climate that preserved enormous
amounts of their written material.

Don't you think that if the rivers turned to blood and every
family lost a son, all on the same night, followed by a 
not inconsiderable portion of the labor force taking to 
their heels -- someone might have thought to jot down a
note about it?  

Somehow, they seem not to have noticed.

And you have no evidence to refute the written eyewitness accounts
that the Bab was fired upon by a 750-man firing squad, but could
not be killed until He Himself allowed it.  This was only 150
years ago, not several thousand.  Do you believe that too?

I don't.
