Scientists have proven a bonafide miracle: Moses and the Israelites happened to be on the shores of the Red Sea at exactly the moment when a wind gust came by to separate the Sea so that they could pass:
In a computer model, Drews was able to simulate what might have happened at the Red Sea just before Moses started a journey that lasted for 40 years. After modeling a body of water that resembled the waters trapping Moses and the Israelites, Drews enforced the laws of physics and applied a wind stress to the water body.
“What I did was use a wind, sort of the strongest wind that I thought … a mixed group of adults and children could walk straight into,” Drews says. This amounts to about a 63 mph wind — a medium-strength tropical storm, as measured by the scale the National Hurricane Center uses.
But this is different from other tropical storms that occur frequently around the world.
“The wind blows on the water, and it stacks it up at the other end. The opposite component of wind set-down is called storm surge,” Drews says. He proposes that there was a bend in the body of water pointing east, and as the water shifted, it separated at the point of the bend, leaving a gap there.
I love these naturalistic explanations – they are so much more far-fetched than an actual miracle from God. It is getting to the point that materialistic scientists need much greater faith than believers.
