Volcanic Eruption 'triggered Biblical Parting Of Red Sea'


Recommended Posts

THE greatest story ever told has acquired a Hollywood twist. James Cameron, the director of Titanic, is the executive producer of a new documentary that claims to have uncovered fresh evidence confirming one of the most dramatic episodes in the Old Testament — the parting of the Red Sea and the Jewish exodus from Egypt.

 

In The Exodus Decoded, a 90-minute documentary that will be shown in America this month, Cameron and Simcha Jacobovici, the Canadian film producer, claim a volcanic eruption on the Greek archipelago of Santorini triggered a chain of natural catastrophes recorded in the Bible as the 10 plagues that God visited upon Egypt as punishment for enslaving the Jews.

Strange new definition of "documentary" that I wasn't previously aware of.

 

I think it would be more productive to examine the lack of Israelite presence in Egyptian archeology.

This seems to be a catch-22 situation for some jews and christians. Supposing what the article says is true, the plagues happened and the exodus occured, but they have natural causes. So for those jews and chrisians who want some proof of major events, he proof will actually work against them since it just shows how ancient people gave supernatural explainations to natural events.
