See the link below for just a sampling of some of the evidence.

We might as well wonder how big was the lion killed by Herakles or what kind of wood the Trojan horse was made out of.
People waste valuable time trying to figure out causes for events that did not actually take place. There is no evidence whatsoever for the ancestors of the Jewish people being in captivity in Egypt, nor any evidence for a 40-year sojourn in the Sinai desert, nor for the conquest of Canaan. Read the stories for their literary merit, not as actual history.

What actually happened was the volcano at Thira (Santorini) exploding. The massive seismic event caused by this explosion pushed the Red Sea down the gulf rather than actually parting it. The sea “retreated” as it it often does during earthquakes and came back later with a vengence destroying Pharoahs army.

The ongoing eruption at Thira prior to the cataclysmic explosion would also explain many of the ‘plagues’ which occured in Egypt prior to the Red Sea incident..

IT WASN’T MOSES THAT PARTED THE WAVES, IT WAS GOD USING MOSES AND HIS STAFF AS INSTRUMENTS OF GOD’S POWER.
