    The atheists already know about this and they give all kinds of reasons not to associate it with Moses, like it is a result of a shipwreck and they just haven't found the ship yet, etc.

    Well, questioning the evidence is the rational thing to do. The investigators do seem a bit overzealous in their claims ("irrefutable evidence" ). There's no refuting that this is evidence of something, but it's probably premature to call their interpretation of the evidence 'irrefutable''. It's a cool story, but there are red flags everywhere in this article.

    Anyone who wouldn't question it is foolish. And that also goes for anyone who would immediately dismiss it out of hand.

    It reminds of that show with the guy called the naked archaeologist. He literally has found all kinds of things in plain view all over the middle east.

    There's a giant cairn, without a doubt man-made, at the bottom of the Dead Sea.

    Of course, many thousands of years ago the land under the Dead and Red Seas were high and dry, and fit for human habitation. Now...not so much.

    The evidence is strong that most ancient flood myths are based on some truth, as sea levels rose dramatically around the world after the last Ice Age came to an end and most humans at the time lived close to some body of water.

    Oh, but obviously some clown in rags waving his wang and causing the waters of the Red Sea to part at his command is by far the more rational explanation. Consider me a convert.

    Are you saying Moses waved his parts?

    Yeah. Well, anything he had left after the circumcision, anyway...

    The Lord said to Moses, “Why do you cry to me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward. Lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, that the people of Israel may go through the sea on dry ground."

    Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.


    (Exodus 14:15-16, 21 NKJV)

    Experts at the National Center for Atmospheric Research are hypothesizing that seven hours of 60 mph winds could have exposed miles of mud flats in the Red Sea, allowing the Chosen Ones to escape. Was an "act of God" really nothing but terrible weather?

    The reaction: If you're a believer in the Bible, says Dave at Aloha Howdy, "get ready to throw up on your shoes." Why do so-called "educated people" feel the need to debunk all of God's miracles?

    Because you're cute when you're flustered. Those cherubic cheeks...those pouty lips...

    Turning the Red Sea into a replica of the local canal complete with old car wrecks is a miracle? OK, now I know why I prefer the Flying Spaghetti Monster, he isn't nearly as messy.

    So, a forklift mechanic is now an archaeological expert. And of course these finds COULDN'T just be from a shipwreck, right? They are underwater, therefore the 'parting of the red sea' fairy tale HAD to have happened, right?

    There is nothing said about us believing in a forklift mechanic. The following is a video made by one of the original explorers in finding these wheels.

    Here is another video about this discovery from guess who?

    P.S. I thought the background history of the Exodus was good on the first video for those, like yourself, that have no idea what the Holy Bible says about history.

    Because if they couldn't come up with some excuse to deny it, they might have to admit it's true and then have to have some responsibility for their own salvation, instead of just saying, "Screw it, I'm gonna go have another beer."
