Frk. Jensen’s post on The powers of water reminds me of paneldebate on ‘Religion versus science’ I once overheard.
A scientist (probably a meteorologist) explained how – under very, very rare and extreme weathercircumstances – the Red Sea could actually have split in two to allow the Jews to escape from the Egyptians.
This was supposed to be the scientific proof, that God doesn’t exist and that there was a natural cause for all of the biblical miracles.
The religious representatives in the panel instantly responded, that it was still a miracle and a proof of God’s interference, that such an ulikely weatherphenomenon occurred the very second the Jews needed it to – and that the WAVES splashed back as soon as the Egyptian army was trying to follow them.
