Wind May Have Parted the Red Sea for Moses


In Exodus, Moses parts the Red Sea, saving the Israelites out of Egypt and slavery. It may be that he had some assistance, according to a computer modeling study of fluid dynamics by researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the University of Colorado in Boulder.

According to a posting on the UCAR website: 

The computer simulations show that a strong east wind, blowing overnight, could have pushed water back at a bend where an ancient river is believed to have merged with a coastal lagoon along the Mediterranean Sea. With the water pushed back into both waterways, a land bridge would have opened at the bend, enabling people to walk across exposed mud flats to safety. As soon as the wind died down, the waters would have rushed back in.
