Moses’s Parting of Red Sea Explained 2004-01-22Posted by clype in Intolerance, Science.
A Russian mathematician says he’s come up with a logical explanation for Moses’s ‘parting of the waves’.
- The scene where Moses parts the waves and leads the ‘Israelites’ across the Red Sea is one of the most well known stories in the ‘Bible’.
Mr.Naum Wolzinger, from St.Petersburg, said it was to do with the changing of the tide; he says there is a reef 6m or 7m under the water that runs from one bank of the Gulf of Suez to the other at the spot where the ‘Exodus’ occurred.
He said depending on the movement of the tides — and if there was a strong wind — it was possible to cross the Red Sea keeping your feet almost dry.
Then, with a drop in the wind though and the water would flood back over the reef in large waves, explaining why they would have come crashing down on the Egyptians when they entered the seabed.
