Where did waters part for Moses? Not where you think

An illustration based on new research shows how wind could have moved and split waters from two ancient basins.

The parting of the waters described in the book of Exodus that enabled Moses and the Israelites to escape the pharaoh's army is possible, computer simulations run by researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the University of Colorado at Boulder show.

To test the theory that the biblical account may have depicted actual events, the researchers studied maps of the region, archaeological records and satellite measurements to find a topographical feature where such an event might have been possible. They settled on an area south of the Mediterranean Sea where some oceanographers say a branch of the Nile River drained into what was called the Lake of Tanis, a coastal lagoon 3,000 years ago.

The computer model shows a 63 mph east wind blowing across the area and its 6-feet-deep waters for 12 hours. In the scenario, the wind pushed back the waters into both the lake and the channel of the river, exposing a mud flat 2 to 2.5 miles long and 3 miles wide for four hours. As the winds died down, the waters quickly flowed back in and in theory would have drowned anyone on the mud flat.

“The simulations match fairly closely with the account in Exodus,” said Carl Drews of NCAR, the lead author of the study published in the online journal PLoS ONE. (Read the full study)

“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.”

Parting the waters, Part 2: Carl Drews on wind setdown research
The biblical account of Exodus has Moses and his followers trapped by the pharaoh forces against a body of water, which has been translated to both the Red Sea and the Sea of Reeds. In the account, a strong wind comes up after night falls and parts the waters behind the Israelites. Moses leads them into the breach but when the pharaoh army pursues them at daybreak, the gap disappears and the army is lost.

Previous research has focused on areas of the Red Sea near the modern-day Suez Canal where the biblical miracle may have been possible. The NCAR/CU team said their research shows those scenarios unlikely. They ran a series of 14 computer simulations to pinpoint the area where the parting of the waters was most likely.

“People have always been fascinated by this Exodus story, wondering if it comes from historical facts,” Drews says. “What this study shows is that the description of the waters parting indeed has a basis in physical laws."

Drews conducted the Exodus research as part of a larger project on how winds can affect water depths.

      This may be true that it could have happened there by science or something natural. However, the true biblical account needs no nature. When God does miracles, God does it. He could have used nature, but ultimatly the miracle is attributed to God. It is funny how biblical accounts are always tried to be solved by science or reason. God is the maker of science, also God can defy science. Jesus was born of a virgin, Jesus was killed and came alive again. How can science explain that? It was God who did it. A miracle. One that makes us praise God!

      If you discount the explanation that God did it, you probably ought to also discount the idea that there actually were any Jews yet.

      If you're not taking the early bible as at least mostly true, then the ancestors of the Jews were still calling themselves Caananites and living the same place as their Jewish descendants did later.

      The Bible is 100% true. If it wasn't, then we would have absolutely no reason to believe whats in it, and people could twist the Bible to mean whatever they wanted. God parted the Red Sea; we know that because it says that in Exodus. There doesn't need to be a scientific explanation for everything because we are human, not God.

      We are made in the image of God or are the children of God. Most of us do not know this because we are too preoccupied with the daily life that we forget our bodies are just the physical instruments of the soul. Stop eating meat, fish and dairy products will help us to lift the veil or darkness in our minds. Then we all understand that the parting of the seas was an act of God.

      Dear Irrational,
      There seem to be an enormous amount of fragile people on here that need to hold onto the promise of an afterlife. Is life really that bad? To throw away all the concrete proof that science has produced for this imaginary covenant called faith seems awful foolish. It's interesting that this idea of faith has a protective component that you can never question it. Questioning things just happens to be the backbone of science. It is no wonder there is such a huge divide between us. That of course is all by design. You cant sustain a religous farce without the other key component which is divisiveness. congratulations on your production of nothing for humanity. If its validation that you seek, it can only be found amongst your equally unoriginal, uninteresting, and widely unintelligent peers. You can waste your lives away wishing for that golden ticket, but please stop wasting everyone elses time and efforts with these childish stories and hateful oppression.

      There is a good quote around "The supernatural is the natural not yet understood", i.e. just because science can't exlpain something today doesn't mean that it won't tomorrow. It still doesn't mean that God did anything or if it exists. Tons of things that were attributed to God in the past are now proven to be simple science.

      Regarding this article – just because something is possible, doesn't mean Moses or God had anything to do with it.

      Right about what? This, like the jews being forced to build the pyramids, is utter crap and I know that you hate to hear it, but there is scientific and archeological evidence to prove it. In addition, crap like that ark story. Can anyone over the age of 4 who is not severely mentally challenged believe that crap?! "Red Sea" is a mistranslation of the 'Sea of Reeds', a much shallower and is a swamp with high and low points depend on seasons, moon phases and tides. Most probably the Egyptian army simply discontinued their efforts, if it actually happened, as it was too much of a pain in the butt. They were gone and what was done was done. People who believe this crap have seen too many movies.

      Crap like the 'virgin' Mary. Um....nope. So, they had a local OBGYN in the village who checked this all out? Just because her alleged husband says that he wasn't the father of the baby doesn't mean squat. Man, its a Jerry Springer episode. "I swear.... Baby, you gotta believe me! It wasn't Joshua from down the road! It was (getting nervous, starting to stammer and sweat...looking toward the ceiling) Oh god (she mumbles). G...g..g...god (he says)!? It was God!?!? Wow!

Angles and stuff, puff of smoke or two I think, some, I dunno, bells or a harp or something.... bada boom bada bing... and I'm preggers. Wow, do I need a cigarette or what. (whew! that was close.

    • AnalyticalThinker

      Absurd to think that this biblical story is etiher authentic or original considering most of the old testament WAS plagerized from various text created by the Kemit and Cush people before Hebrews even existed. I saw with my own eyes in Kemet (Egypt) just 2 months ago within the medu neter (hierogylphs) which depict many of these concepts such as the parting of the sea, the immaculate conception, etc... thousands of years before either a bible or a quaran even existed (circa 300 b.c.e). Anyone caring to research, you can find extensive passages of the old testament that are plagurized directly from Eyptian texts. But of course no one REALLY wants to know the truth although it's not hard to find.

      well john, what do you expect to read from a generation alienated from God?... religious beliefs and teachings are handed down from generation to generation. and some where along the line we all received a distorted story. truth be told, no one can say with any degree of accuracy that it did happen or it did not happen... we can only speculate. one thing's for certain though, if you believe the story of the ten plagues... that it only affected the egyptians and not the israelites, then it may not be much of a stretch to reasonably conclude that the parting of the red sea really happened, or even that jesus raised the dead. either way, to those who do believe, it is a matter of faith. that's all.

      Howdy Darkstar,
      It sounds like an abuse of public monies to me. The paper indicates that the lead author runs a website oriented towards finding an accommodation between evolution and Christian thought. No harm there, but it does tell you what biases were carried into this work. I'm not nearly physicist enough to comment on the hydrodynamics, but I do sail. I strongly doubt that 12 hours worth of wind is going to drop the surface of the Red Sea by the 2-meter value given. If that were the case then the shoreline of our comparably large lakes and rivers would be far more sensitive to winds. It looks like data fitted to match a desired conclusion to me. I suspect that the editors of PLoS shot themselves in the foot with this one.

      I used to think just like Randoms, BUT . . .

      I'd like to share with everyone the most significant, pivotal moment of my life thus far. . .

      God spoke to me in a dream (I can just hear the laughter from unbelievers, but stick with me here).
      The Dream: I was in a small side room of a church by myself, when I found myself fascinated and terrified by a picture of the Virgin Mary on the wall, BLEEDING! In an effort to explain this phenomena, I took the picture off of the wall, placed it into a bag, and brought it to another room, where my friend (and roommate at the time of the dream, who was sleeping in another bed in the same room)was. When I tried to show the picture to her, and we both looked down at it, it was completely clean: no sign of blood anywhere! When I swore to my friend that it had been bleeding, she looked at me in complete and utter fear, warning me to just go put it back where I found it. When I went back into the other room by myself, and placed it back on the wall, it began bleeding again! (I truly believe that this was God trying to tell me to stop trying to prove things, and just believe within myself.) The most gripping and amazing part of the entire thing here is that . . .

      I WOKE UP TO 3 TAPS ON MY BACK, signifying The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit!!!

      Now, unbelievers whom I have told of my calling have tried to explain this away by calling it a back spasm, but I don't know of any back spasm that presents itself with 3 very hard slow taps, which almost hurt, and were hard enough to wake me up! I had never, and have not since had any type of "spasms." So, explain that with science!!!

And what about modern fiction? Some of it also references modern cities. Is it then real as well? And no, the ark hasn't been discovered, as the world was never flooded. What HAS been discovered are the remains of mining shacks and mine entrances – though you won't hear about that from the "ark discovery" websites.

      So what you are saying is that since science can provide a possible explanation for the miracle to occur, that God doesn't exist? I find this hilarious. Imagine the Israelites just walking along and then all of a sudden...'Hey look! A landbridge'. Biblical accounts state that they walked across on dry land. It wasn't just people, but everything they had in Egypt....animals, goods, etc. Even if the land bridge lasted for 4 hours, all of Israel would have been unable to cross in that time period, especially if the ground would have been a mud flat. While science can try to explain the mystery, there are still elements in the account that point to God being involved.

In fact, perhaps one could use this for religion. God was by Moses's side and sent the divine wind that saved him and his people. That divine wind is possible, as proved by the science.

      Enlighten us with your knowledge of science.

      Science does not pretend to know the origine of DNA (religion does: God did it) but they strive to gain knowledge to perhaps lead to the answer one day. Why does ice float and not sink? Because the volume of H2O increased 10% yet the mass remains constant thereby creating a less denser material. High School science class taught use that items with smaller density will float (oil on water works the same way) What caused the earth to have a magnetic field so that we would not get fried every time the sun threw off a solar flare? The earth doesn't have the magnetic field "so that we would not get fried ...", it just happens to be a benificial reality to sustaining life on our planet.

      Rick stated that "all things can be answered by science" that is far from the truth but a typical atheist answer that is far from reality. I dont understand all things...I admit to that. I am not sure what is on the other side of death...nor do I really care. I am living this life for now, for the moment. I am fully aware that ice floats because it is less dense than its liquid form....but dont you think it is amazing that when most liquids form into their solid states that the solid is more dense than the liquid, thus sinking.....this would have had a huge impact on human life....The one liquid that is crucial to sustaining life act in opposite form to most other solid / liquid relationships....maybe as you said, it just happens to be a beneficial reality of sustaining life on earth. Same with the magnetic field....that one element sustains life....Mars does not even have one....so why does earth? Chance? Maybe. But all things point to order and sustainability not chaos and chance.

      Why when one actually brings up scientific thoughts into this discussion do you call it laughable? That is the one thing that lacks from this debate is scientific points rather than just ones opinions about the bible....

      So, all things can be explained through science... I don't really disagree, but I do have one thing to add. How do you explain science/physics? If science is the basis by which all things are explained, what guides/creates what we call "science"? Rules of physics didn't just invent themselves, they came from somewhere... wrap your heads around that. It all had to start somewhere, somehow, pre-science, pre-physics, supernaturally...created.

      The Bible is not believed because it full of all kinds of unbelievable things. Furthermore, the Jewish books were not likely written and assembled until after the Babylonian Exile. Then there is the New Testament that was not written by anyone who knew Joshua son of Joseph. If you do not know that Jesus in Hebrew is Joshua then you are not actually studying your faith. 3 of the 4 gospels are much later and are based on a single one. If you actually read the books you will see the glaring inconsistencies.

      Many Jewish people believe that the stories in the OT are legends that teach and not actual events. There is poetry, history, geneologies, laws; so many laws; there are also rules for living in the desert. I.e. don't eat pork. Of course not when you have no way of preserving it. I was raised in a Baptist Church and have read the d%$n thing many times and been smacked for blasphemy when I questioned the ludicrous stories. Some of them are right out of anciet Babylonian stories. The Epic of Gilgamesh has almost exactly the same story of Creation; though the OT has 2 different versions. To be fair, a low percentage of religous whack jobs think the OT and NY are accurate history. That is a fundamentalist thing and they will kill you to force it down your throat.

      It is a stupid thing to do to abuse a child for having questions. It turns them mean towards the ones who hand down the law or destroys their intelligence and ability to stand up for themselves. A Baptist Church and my Baptist Mom drove me to atheism as a kinder and more humane path. I also think it is bunk to say a bully will go to heaven and the humane atheist go to hell because some dude name Joshua will take in the monster because he is a christian. Everyone is responsible for their own actions and this salvation cr@p will get you off the hook for being a jerk who threatens people with hell is neither just nor likely.

      I speak primarily of the fundamentalists who take the books for truth even though there is little consistency and no real historical record. I speak of those who jump into comments and throw their beliefs at others like emotional shrapnel. Study the history of Christianity with reputable scholars and theologians with your mind wide open and you will find there is little to make a Christian anything but guilty. Europe was "saved" at the point of sword not with love. Join up or die. There were mass baptisms and any one who would not get in the water was killed. The most northern parts of Europe were only Christianized a couple of centuries ago and some of them are turning their backs on it because of the violence perpetrated on their culture. They are burning churches as they go back to the paganism that actually works with their culture. I don't agree with church burning and I would never say people cannot believe this guff. I would just like to seem them leave others alone and stop brainwashing their children. I was in mid thirties before I was finally free of what they did to me. Oh, as an adult I gave Christianity another shot. It was even worse than I thought in my teens before I ran for life way too young.

      For people who claim to know the bible you didn't read very much or study much of it. Nor did you study why some book were chosen and others not, or any of the science within christianity. Many Blievers think god is very scintific and gives us many gifts through knowledge. And just so you know: one dose not get in heaven by believing in god. They have to accept him into their hearts and submitt to his will instead of their own. To accept that another (Jesus) paid the price for their sins no matter how big or small those may be. No one is without sins, just believing in a god is not enouph to get into heaven. You have the choice to believe and accept this or not.

      @Robert – there is no conclusive proof that it was Caliph Omar of Damascus who burnt down the great library. There is also a plethora of evidence to suggest it was either Julius Ceasar or Patriarch Theophilus who burned down the great library. be careful not to so quickly jump to conclusions when the evidence doesn't support you

      Mohammed, the body looks like that because of mummification and it has nothing to do with religion. And Quran also says about parting of seas because its copied from same source.

      Hey Robert, does lying always come that easily for you? There were no Muslims when the library at

      alexandria burned, Mohammed hadn't even been born. Not even a credible try at anti-muslim incitement.

      Dudes, Forget about all these crap. Just be good to people, animals and our environment. This 'research' should have been paid by some vatican guys and they don't care about rationality. Just go and see a place called Dwaraka in Western India and you will see that an entire city is submerged in water. That is called as evidence to what is told in Mahabharatha. Not these fictional stuff.

      Muslim burnt the only University in the world at that time in Takshashila (Now in Afghanistan). This was a place where nearly 20000 students from all over the world came to study Sanathana Dharma. Go and read kuran properly and see that everyline of kuran is full of hatred. That is what led to burning of Takshashila. Muslims and Islam are not peaceloving. Whereever they go, they divide the nation and people.

    This is 2010 and we want to go with everybody fear of death (religion) but in this time and place, we all the advances in science and the TRUE, still feeding the never ending thirst for proof of God is not the place for CNN, I think....

      God is Truth. In Him and through Him all things exist. There is Absolute Truth. It doesnt matter what you think or what I think. There is The Way and no other. In or Out. There is no Gray area. God does exist. Christians are not against science. Science is a wonderful thing that God has given us to show us how things work and have happened over time. We a Believers just Trust in the Truth as our starting point. Science will never explain how we got here or how the earth got here. Only by believing that God, supernaturally created the earth, us, and all that is in it. I challenge you to seek Truth, find the answer for yourself. Don't believe me, your friends, or anyone else for that matter. If you do your research (science, the Bible, Atheistic Views) all are kidding themselves if they believe that have found absolute Truth in any thing other than God and His Word. God Bless and may He break our Hearts.

      I am replying to all of you anti-christs& anti-Gods.
      Seriously?? It is easier to believe that a wind 'just happened' and that it kept the waters back long enough for a million Israelites to cross , on DRY ground , and to stop exactly while the entire Egyptian army was in it to drown them, then to believe that God, who created ALL of the earth and everything in it did it?....It just happened???

      That you or I are aware of.
      Things occur in nature without having a person present to acknowledge that they did or did not happen.

      IMHO wrote,"The tree that falls in the middle of the forest, with no one present to observe or hear it, still falls." Yes, Yes, Yes, but the real burning question is,"Does it still make any noise when it falls?"

      Hebrews 11:1-3 1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 2This is what the ancients were commended for.
      3By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

      God has clearly shown himself to us. Now it is by faith that we must believe. And yes, miracles (the supernatural things in life) happen every day. Again, God has clearly shown and is showing Himself to us all.

    Why do people try so hard to treat myth as fact?

    • IMHO

      For the same reason some people try to write off things they don't understand or can't personally prove as myths.

      Because they are desperately clinging on to their dying religions in a day and age where more & more free thinking people are making their own decisions about god and the true origins of the universe. It's a nice story though.

      You cannot disprove God's Word. I'm sorry but you just cannot do it. I challenge you to read God's Word and with an open mind. Then try to disprove it. You cannot do it! God=Truth / Truth is not God
