Some theories have surfaced "pun intended" that the volcanic eruption on the island of Santorini may have caused the parting of the Reed Sea and not the Red. Recent Excavations by archeologists claim to have unearthed more than a dozen archeological relics that suggest the exodus took place three centuries earlier than biblical scholars estimate. By reinterpreting artwork at museums in Luxor, Cairo, Athens and elsewhere, Jacobovici dates the exodus to around 1500BC.
That was about the time when some geologists believe the Santorini volcano, 400 miles north of Egypt, erupted in the eastern Mediterranean. Scientists and historians have long speculated that the 10 plagues suffered by Egypt might have been linked in a domino theory of natural events.
Sounds like I'll keep an open mind on this one.
still something to consider me thinks.
I'll look into this. I'm always open to the ideas and theories that are put forth.
