Place Where Sea Split is Still Recognizable Today

So says the Haggadah Shel Pesah "Midrash BeHiddush" (11 lines from the bottom of the page)

This afternoon Shabbat I became 40 years old and we read in the Torah that 40 years Jews were in Midbar. This year must be the Geula. Amen!

I stumbled into the following without even having looked for it, last week, before shabbos b'shalach:

One day later, again, stumbled, "by chance" into this: (Mt Sinai and Red Sea crossing point).

I'm stunned !!

Ron Wyatt and many others, most of the Xtians, think that the Red Sea crossing was at Sharm El Sheikh. They have a lot of evidence except they have a problem. Israel arrived at the crossing point in just three days. I challenge you to walk from the Nile Delta to Sharm El Sheikh in just 3 days!! Otherwise it is a great theory.

And even if Klal Yisrael had six days to travel that distance, it still could not have been done without Kefitzat HaDerekh, but we know from our mephorshim that we were at the crossing point in just 3 days. I read "The Gold of Exodus" too, and it is convincing but problematic since the crossing of the Red Sea was on Day 7. Jim Long, a Noachide, found the actual site of Pi HaChirot, and it was not at Sharm El Sheikh. Yet, Wyatt and Bob Cornuke are right in that ancient Midian was in Saudi Arabia, not necessarily in the Sinai. It is a conundrum.

Yes, on both accounts. The ninth month after Tisha B'Av 5772 is this Nisan/Iyar 5773. And now we are being warned to have gas masks as soon as we can this week if for whatever reason we don't have one. The Pisgat Ze'ev mall is open for "emergency gas mask" distribution through Thursday of this week only. Hezbollah is now camping out next to Assad's chemical facilities after the Fordo plant in Iran was sabotaged. And now North Korea has two allies that need its assistance.

On the issue of the the chariot wheels in the Gulf of Aqaba, I happen to agree that there seems to be a growing pile of evidence that there was a "chariot battle" in the Red Sea right there. And the other side of that crossing spot in Saudi Arabia is a three day walk to a very large alkaline lake bed (NaOH) bed that if it were full of water, the water would be bitter. Then headed north, is an oasis with approximately 70 date-palm trees. Then there is a large battlefield north of that spot with a small mound at one end of the width of that battlefield. And this is a hop skip and a jump from Jabal Al Laws, which the locals call Jabal Musa, the Mountain of Moses. And that candidate for Har Sinai is very impressive. It is close by to the ancient caves of Midian. It has rock at its summit that looks like ancient glass as if the rock had melted from a great heat and hardened again. There is space at the base of this mountain for over 3 million people to encamp. There is a cleft at the top of the mountain and a cave where Eliyahu heard a still but thin voice right underneath the summit. There is an altar close by to the mountain with pictures of cows and calves on it even though there are no bovine creatures in the immediate area. There are 12, yes 12, boundary markers at the base of this mountain. After Wyatt showed up there with David Fasold with his metal detecting machine and actually found a cache of gold, the Saudis showed up and arrested them and threw them out of the country. So then Larry Williams and Bob Cornuke show up years later and validated all these finds by Wyatt even though the Saudis had turned Mt. Sinai into a top secret military base. Yes, the evidence there is pretty powerful, and I would be inclined to agree that that is the real Har Sinai since there is no mountain in the Sinai Peninsula where 3 million people could camp out at the base of that mountain. Yet, we still get back to the same question that it is much more than a three day walk from the Nile Delta to Gulf of Aqaba. Oh you know about the underwater land bridge over the Rift Valley where the chariot wheels were found? It is just wide enough for 12 people to walk side by side. As a scientist I cannot dispute evidence, But can I dispute with Rashi at the same time?

I figure that since Eliyahu HaNavi went to Horev to try to return the Torah to G-d while running away from Jezebel, we will just ask him where Har Sinai is when he shows up sometime between now and Pesach 5774, the year of Kolot (of Prophesy). That will settle the matter on both where is Har Sinai and where was the Red Sea crossing.
