Computers show how wind could have parted Red Sea

Science lends credence to the Biblical account of the parting of the Red Sea in the Book of Exodus.  The writer attempts to put some sort of spin to make it seem like it could have been a natural phenomenon, but let’s not get ridiculous.  It takes more faith to believe that this was a fluke that to believe in God.

New computer simulations have shown how the parting of the Red Sea, as described in the Bible, could have been a phenomenon caused by strong winds.

The account in the Book of Exodus describes how the waters of the sea parted, allowing the Israelites to flee their Egyptian pursuers.

Simulations by US scientists show how the movement of wind could have opened up a land bridge at one location.

This would have enabled people to walk across exposed mud flats to safety.

The results are published in the open-access journal Plos One.

The researchers show that a strong east wind, blowing overnight, could have pushed water back at a bend where an ancient river is believed to have merged with a coastal lagoon.

With the water pushed back into both waterways, a land bridge would have opened at the bend, enabling people to walk across exposed mud flats to safety.

As soon as the wind died down, the waters would have rushed back in.

  1. I take issue with your comment. You are suggesting that if the forces of nature combined to open a Red Sea passage, God was therefore not responsible. I think that nothing happens without the will of God. I think that you’re just somewhat annoyed that the Hollywood version may have been incorrect.

  2. Sorry for the confusion Dave. I agree that nothing happens without the will of God. Nothing in my post suggests otherwise. It is very interesting that science has confirmed that a strong wind blowing from the east, as Exodus says, could achieve the parting of the waters. The fact that science can corroborate these things, albeit 4000 years later, gives much credence to the Biblical account and is a confirmation of our Faith.
