"Parting of Red Sea Jibes With Natural Laws"

Pretty darn cool.

A strong east wind, blowing overnight, could have swept water off a bend where an ancient river is believed to have merged with a coastal lagoon along the Mediterranean Sea, said study team member Carl Drews of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. While archaeologists and Egyptologists have found little evidence that any events described in Exodus actually happened, the study outlines a perfect storm that could have led to the 3,000-year-old escape.

Short video of the simulation.

Very cool. And fits nicely with scientific explanations for Moses and the plagues of Egypt: http://www.vision.org/visionmedia/article.aspx?id=1077

This idea isn't so far fetched. When a strong west wind blows across the western end of Lake Erie, the very shallow water gets blown to the eastern end of the lake and what was shallow water is exposed as barren mud flats. A good friend of mine and his father were out duck hunting when the strong west wind blew the water away and their duck boat was left high and dry in the mud. The weather turned very cold and the damn fools tried to walk to shore across the deep mud. They got stuck in the mud and when the wind stopped the water returned and they both drowned. What a horrible and stupid way to die.
