Say what.......the evidence that Moses parted the Red Sea

Religion never ceases to amaze me, or should I say the religious never cease to amaze me. So when I saw this article on WND cited by someone I just had to check it out. After all scientific evidence for someone parting a sea is pretty incredible.

So lets get right to the point, this work was first conducted 11 years ago by amateur archeologists. And then again 2 years ago in 2012 some new "evidence" was discovered by amateur archeologists. The fact that no professional archeologists have deemed it necessary to search for these remains tells us this is probably bullshit. More importantly, there is no evidence ever presented, all we ever see is underwater pictures like the one below.

BTW, yes that is superimposing of a picture on top of the coral. Below, is another picture of the coral without the superimposed image as well as another picture of Table Coral.

Not so impressive anymore after the first picture with superimposition.


The thing that baffles me, if this was so important information surely they would have brought some of the wheels and remains to the surface.The only piece of evidence ever found has gone missing, and the fact that more has not been brought to the surface is that the Egyptian government will not allow artifacts to be removed. How convenient this all is.

Also, even if this is a chariot axle, it does not mean Moses parted the sea, it more probably means that a chariot getting transported fell over board. Or a ship carrying chariots sank. All highly more probable than something incredible for which there is no evidence of ever happening again. I have also included a picture of the Red Sea below for you to see how small it is (all irony intended).

Needless to say, it turns out that this is just more evidence for the selling of something on the WND site to the religious sheeple. Here is a preview of the documentary they are selling, BTW the preview looks not exciting at all so not sure if I would subject myself to the full length documentary.
