Not really, but that sure got your attention didn’t it? Well, anyway, according to the journalists over at MSNBC, it was a storm which parted the Red Sea which is portrayed in the Book of Exodus.
Mother Earth could have parted the Red Sea, hatching the great escape described in the biblical book of Exodus, a new study finds.
A strong east wind, blowing overnight, could have swept water off a bend where an ancient river is believed to have merged with a coastal lagoon along the Mediterranean Sea, said study team member Carl Drews of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. While archaeologists and Egyptologists have found little evidence that any events described in Exodus actually happened, the study outlines a perfect storm that could have led to the 3,000-year-old escape.
Oh, dilettantes,…when will you learn? So typical of these news stories, they receive a study like this and immediately attach it to a Biblical account. Also, it is incorrect that archaeologists and Egyptologists have found “little evidence”…in point of fact, they have found none. So much for accurate journalism.
