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.
