I have been doubting lately... I feel I need proof that God sent the plagues, parted the Red Sea, or Sea of Reeds, and that Christ really is the son of God. The bible is not enough proof. Where is the archaeological evidence of the sea parting and the Egyptians drowning? Where are the ancient artifacts of the Jews once they reached the promise land? Where are the ten commandments on tablets that were broken? Where is the true, physical, and concrete evidence? Where is the tomb that Jesus was buried in? Where is the cross that He died on and the blood? I need REAL proof, not just words typed in a big book, called The Holy Bible. I need proof....

The bible is not enough proof for me now. I never saw Jesus die or his resurrection. Why believe in something when there is no proof?

What is proof that Great, Great, Great grandfather of your Granfather existed?

It must also be a fake thing?

Did you get any doubt that he ever existed as a historical person?

Why you have doubt about Jesus and Moses' existence?

What Signs YOUR ancestors left, that you can verify their physical existence?

How do you KNOW that Alaxendar the Great really existed? Or even Columbus?

No, I mean that if relaible biographies say that Screates had beard, we should just not disregard it, unless we have stronger proof that he did not have it.

If you have no evidence that Alexander the Great did not exist, you should not doubt those who say he existed.

Start with positive attitude and not negative.

Socrates probably had a beard ... just look at the 'contemporary' statues

but Nebuchadnezzar apparently did not.. hence the epithet Nanas [the youth] but the 'modern' illustrations do not know this...

Abraham Lincoln had a beard ... but no moustache.

Go and look - usually if you see a beard you assume a moustache - but when you look he never has one.

the chariot wheels in the sea is compelling - actually coral grown in the shape of what used to be chariots - off Neviot in the Gulf of Aqaba - a site originally found by Ron Wyatt of Madison Tennessee, USA Google that for links, and more about Mt Sinai, other interesting claims...

basically - it must have been tsunami - African Rift is huge earthquake fault - underwater land bridge would be uncovered, then slammed with twin tsunamis

coral would grow on the wreckage - makes sense

How come a Tsunami that allows Jews to cross the river and comes at exact the same time when Pharoah and his armies were crossing?

That also needs some Divine Intervention... and that is the whole point and moral of the story.

It was a Divine act to save Moses and his people and drown Phaorah and his hosts.

How it was achieved , we can keep on discussiong till the cows come home, but it was a "natural, run in the mill event"!!
