Did Moses Part the Nile Delta?


Remember the Bible story where Moses parted the Red Sea? According to scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the University of Colorado at Boulder, the phenomenon of winds parting water, could be achieved under the right conditions.

The research findings, shown in computer model simulations, agree with details found in the Book of Exodus describing how water could part after a blistery East wind blew all night. With one major difference — the water’s parting might be possible at the Nile delta.
