seeks to explore and detail the physics behind the Biblical account of
the Jews crossing the sea during their flight from slavery in Egypt.
study, published in the Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences and
reported upon today in The Moscow Times, concludes that a reef running
along the north side of the sea could have been the "dry land" upon
which the Jews crossed - providing that a 30-meter-per-second (67 mph)
wind blew across the sea all night, leaving the reef dry. The cessation
of the wind would then lead to the drowning of the pursuing Egyptian
forces, trapped on the reef as the waters returned, as recorded in the
The Russia-based researcher, Naum Volziger, who
specializes in flooding and tidal waves, told a Moscow Times reporter,
"It would take the Jews - there were 600,000 of them [male Jews "aged
20 and over" - ed. note] - four hours to cross the seven-kilometer reef
that runs from one coast to another. Then, in half an hour, the waters
would come back."
Volziger said he and his colleague studied the
issue "strictly from Isaac Newton's point of view." However, the
researcher did acknowledged, "I am convinced that G-d rules the Earth
through the laws of physics."
