Moses' Parting of the Waves Explained by Scientist

 

One of the best known stories in the Bible is the parting of the waves by Moses during the Exodus. Russian mathematician, Naum Wolzinger claims this was no miracle, and that he has quite a logical explanation.

A riff runs from one bank of the Red Sea, now the Gulf of Suez, to the other, approximately 6 meters under the water. At low tide and with the right wind, it is possible to walk from one side to the other, barely getting wet feet.

Mr Wolzinger, from St Petersburg, says that the sea crashing down on the pursuing Egyptians was nothing more than the wind dropping, causing the riff to flood again.

  Hey, even God takes shortcuts  
 
Your right nollog.. I'm fairly sure God controls the wind :P And if he can make a miracle without having to waste too much energy or time, hey why not?

  oh wait  
 
dont forget about other peoples "gods" where as one is set aside for their wind, and one set aside for lighting.... personally i think god is an excuse for elderly people to pass away. Religion is just one big organized cult, with "followers".

  Right?  
 
So the right wind and right tide were were there at precise moment allowing Moses and followers to pass through and as soon as the egyptians started to cross that wind just happend to come back and flood them, somehow i doubt that, I belive in God and everytime scientists explains something from the Bible it always seems their scenarios would have to be occur at the right moment or some precise action that you never see happening today, the bible people must have been either really lucky or wait heres an idea they were protected by God. Im no pushy christian I just believe in what I believe cause i choose to,not because im told too. So if you dont agree thats fine your rightfully entitled to do so, i just ask do it in a mature fashion. Well thats all for me Peace :-)

  OOPS!!!!  
 
my bad guys i hit back and it asked to resend data i didnt even think to say no oh well
 
  by: sixstringtoker   01/22/2004 06:04 AM     
  hmm  
 
there are some things you can believe what happend when scientists, but thats very rarely, some things they have explained could be possible, but also theres a big chance its a lie, this explanation is just stupid, like that one guy said it was the perfect moment, i dont think moses would of waited for that perfect moment so i say this is bullshit, i am a christian but i dont believe everything i been told, but that doesnt mean everything scientists tell you are true either,

maybe this occured over time with this riff and wind, theres many explanations you can say, but i doubt we will ever know answers to anything made by GOD and ect.

  also  
 
also there was a time in the bible where Joshua needed to finish something and needed daylight for awhile longer, well in the bible it says that God stopped the world from turning for so many minutes, and then started it up again, well Scientists have found this out that this did happen, and they cannot explain this why? but Moses didnt depart the water and made it crash down into the Egyptians? never believe everything you hear.

  whered you hear that  
 
i'd like to see some proof that scientists proved the world stopped
 
  by: invaderalexxx   01/23/2004 01:08 AM     
  Another thing  
 
I watched a special on Discovery channel that had scientists explaining that the walls of jericho werent struck down by God, but by an earthquake. Yet again we have another case of being there at the right time at the right moment, how are you going to be there right when an earthquake happend, unless God caused the earthquake. I believe scientists on some things but I almost always disagree on their explanations of the Bible. Their always way to coincidental. They also said Jesus had healing powers but they couldnt prove how he did it. So hes not the son of God but he has healing powers hmmm see what im saying, anyways this is just mu opinion.
