A Pennsylvania State University physicist suggested that the biblical story of the parting of the Red Sea may have been the result of a desert mirage.
The physicist, Dr. Alistair Fraser, said Christ walking on water also could have been a mirage.
He made his comments at a meeting of the Optical Society of America.
Dr. Fraser told the meeting there were photographs that reproduced both phenomena. He said the biblical description of the Red Sea crossing was a particularly accurate picture of a mirage.
