The popular belief that a group of about half a million people crossed the Red Sea never happened. But the crossing of a drained field connected to
Gosen's flood reservoirs during the annual Monsoon flooding of the Nile COULD very well have happened exactly as it is written. And the Exodus story
doesn't say "Red Sea", but "the Sea of Reeds" which is an obvious alusion to the name for paradise to the ancient Egyptians: "The Field
Remember that in the days of Moses, there were elaborate irrigation systems connected to the annual Monsoon flooding of the Nile. By diverting the
Nile using a system of gates, they filled up giant water reservoirs miles away from the river, inter connected and connected with the Nile by canals,
and the water level was regulated with gates or walls that could be opened or closed by will, thereby diverting the flooding Nile elsewhere in a gate
configuration or one could move water between basins throughout the year; flood or drain the Field
of Reeds, effectively turning it in to the
'Sea of Reeds' and vice versa (see above).
Moses probably walked across the floor of a drained artificial lake which most of the year would be a papyrus field irrigated by water from mentioned
reservoirs. From the time the flood season ended and until the next year's flood and the Nile returned to normal, the whole Upper and Lower Egypt was
artificially irrigated feeding on giant reservoir lakes that would be filled once every year during the flooding of the Nile. In reality the whole of
Egypt was green and lush back then. Most of this area is now desert, just like Hermes prophesied.
The biblical text doesn't actually say anything magic happened. Just that Moses made a signal by raising his staff over his head that made the water
stand as walls to both sides. Which can easily be interpreted as a turning wall that can hold back water. A floodgate.
The Ankh was not a cross. Archaeology has shown that they were actual keys used to open and close gates along the Nile. Symbolically the Ankh used
used in art, given to Egyptian elite and royalty as well as the gods, showing their divine power to regulate the Nile and the daily lives of the
Egyptians, and how the Egyptians' lives depended on this power to control the Nile. The Ankh was a key that allowed the Pharaohs to open or close
floodgates. The Ankh is called 'The Key of the Nile' in ancient Egyptian literature for this reason.
