Being a science major at this university I always like to question a story, or scientific findings credibility and what could have caused such a thing to happen. Although the modern day academic environment contains lots of quantification and explanation, the bible does not. It mostly holds stories with the explanation being god. Now for the video linked a above I am not using this as an example to show that god is neither real or unreal just that these events could have happened from nature or a type of miracle.Through the scientific analysis of the scripture we where able to figure out how such a event could have taken place under those conditions.
This is a great example of how science can be applied to the religious aspect without discrediting it. This is great because as talked about in class several times the field of religion and the field of science can not agree and thus end up splitting peoples perception on matters. In this approach it just used the examples in the bible and shows if the event happened what it could have been, leaving it up to the viewer to categorize it as a miracle or just a naturally occurring event that would have happened even if say the Israelites along with mosses where not trying to escape and thus where not in the area to witness the event.
Hopefully in the future we can get on to a scientific and religious consensus or agreement on several pressing issues like the scientifically proven theory of evolution, life forming over million of years from inorganic compounds, and the question of what happens when we die. Till that day I guess well just have to keep researching and developing our scientific community.
