This is a quick post, but I found this article last night and thought I would add it to my series of posts about the Bible being confirmed against the critics who say it is a bunch of stories, myths and lies. The latest example comes from a group of scientists who have used computer modeling to show that it was indeed possible for the waters to have parted as stated in the book of Exodus when the Israelite escaped from Egypt. Not only was it possible, it would have had to have happened in exactly the way the Bible described it with a strong east wind. Check it out for yourself:
As the Bible story goes, Moses and the fleeing Israelites were trapped between the Pharaoh’s advancing chariots and a body of water that has been variously translated as the Red Sea or the Sea of Reeds. In a divine miracle, a mighty east wind blew all night, splitting the waters and leaving a passage of dry land with walls of water on both sides. The Israelites were able to flee to the other shore. But when the Pharaoh’s army attempted to pursue them in the morning, the waters rushed back and drowned the soldiers.
“The simulations match fairly closely with the account in Exodus,” Drews said. “The parting of the waters can be understood through fluid dynamics. The wind moves the water in a way that’s in accordance with physical laws, creating a safe passage with water on two sides and then abruptly allowing the water to rush back in.”
Chalk up another one for Scripture. God’s Word stands the test of time and testing over and over again.
On a totally unrelated note (other than the post title), my fantasy football team racked up some huge points and ran up the score on my opponent this week.
