Parting the red sea possible?

    Stuff like this makes me giggle; if they want to show the Bible is literal and accurate , why don't they start at the begining instead of looking for areas for vacuous speculation?

    Oh... yes, there is no way in hell one can show the Creation account or the Flood account to be literal... but if that's the case, why do they keep on trying?

    Because if they can show some literality they can carry on pointing to laws in the Bible they want to enforce (which for some reason are always the sex laws and never the ones on boiling kids in mothers milk, charging interest or wearing polycotton mixture clothes), and they can carry on getting off on how bad people are?

    Personal theory, no biggie.

    But this is stupid;

    "If the wind blew all night at a speed of 30 meters (about 98 1/2 feet) per second, then the reef would be dry," Volzinger told The Moscow Times. "It would take the Jews ? there were 600,000 of them ? four hours to cross the seven-kilometer (4.4 mile) reef that runs from one coast to another. Then, in half an hour, the waters would come back."

    And lo! It came to pass that Moses was so excited that the sea done part that he forgot to mention 70 mile-per-hour winds, and how the tents of the assembly verily were blown to hell... and it was a good thing that the Isrealites had fled from Egypt in their wellies and that they had rehearsed the maneuver so much they were able to get 42 people across every second....

    Big crock of smelly stuff. Isn't it funny how those who are so obsessed with faith are often the literalists who will focus on textual details to such an extent they can lose the spirit of what they are supposedly following?
