I saw a program, i believe on the discovery channel, that said that a massive volcanic eruption in the mediteranean at the same time could have allowed the 'parting of the red sea' it caused a massive tidal wave (it was a while ago that i saw this so i cant remember specifics)
Moses Parts the Red Sea
For nearly a century, there has been speculation that the Red Sea mentioned in Exodus is not the huge 100-mile-wide expanse as it is known today, but the western "finger" of the Red Sea--which is now called the Gulf of Suez--that extends to the border areas of Egypt. This notion stems from the fact that the original Hebrew phrase for Red Sea was "yam suph," which actually means "Reed Sea."
This phrase most aptly describes the lake region north of the Gulf of Suez, including the Bitter Lakes and Lake Timsah. According to the account in Exodus of Moses's feat, enough water was present initially to block the fleeing Israelites, and then later to drown the pursuing Egyptians.
Assuming all of that is true, researchers believe that a logical location for the biblical Red Sea is modern-day Lake Sirbonis. According to a Bulletin Of The American Meteorological Society account, computer calculations indicate that because of the peculiar geography of the northern end of the Red Sea, a moderate wind blowing constantly for about 10 hours could have caused the sea to recede about a mile and the water level to drop 10 ft., leaving dry land for a period of time before crashing back when the winds died down.

TC, I think that would mean of God. If he loves all people unconditionally he wouldn't do that. Since it may be very difficult for some people to take him on faith.
It's all about diversity...

Convenient? And you think our science has reached a point to where it can unravel the mysteries of God? LOL!
Plenty of signs were given, His Son was given, no more signs for a degenerate people.
Ash being responsible for blood? I know Moses didn't have the scientific equipment available to us today, but I'm sure the ol' boy could tell the difference between ash dissovled in water and stinking, putrid blood.
Among not explaining other plagues, the article would have a devil of a time convincing me that the eruption killed every first born as if it were the Angel of Death.
