After wondering what, exactly, Ilana Pardes believes happened at the Re(e)d Sea, I was put onto this story, which is an entirely unoriginal rehash of 19th century rationalist arguments concerning the Bible:

Carl Drews, from the National Centre for Atmospheric Research in Colorado, used computer modelling techniques to show that a strong east wind could have pushed the waters in Egypt back far enough to create a land bridge, as is described in the Book of Exodus.

One item I neglected to mention yesterday concerning Ilana Pardes’s shit paper, for she also said:

I don’t believe Moses parted the Red Sea – in that way.
