"Bible Dictionaries" how would you know those definitions to be true?

And this in spite of the best, most revered scholars of the bible not even agreeing on where this happened? Or even the actual meaning of the words translated as Red Sea?

This is quite a stretch, even for you.

Could you present your evidence that would confirm your statement?

The orginal site where some Bible scholars spoke of as being the Red Sea Crossing Site did not match the Biblical account. There were no high mountains that the Bible clearly spoke of that blocked the passage of Egypt's army. Also, there is no historical evidence that was ever uncovered there to suggest the event ever happened. And the site that has now been uncovered has two red Granit Pillars on oppsite shores that were placed there 3,000 years ago marking the site. And between the pillars is where divers are finding all the coral incrusted artifacts. It would be quite a stretch to ignore this kind of evidence. And only those who do not want to believe the Biblical account would do so. Two expeditions have been there already, and both of them have confirmed the reality of this site.

It is up to you to present valid evidence supporting your statement, but I will not accept biased evidence.
But none the less... Wyatt Archaeological Research Fraud Documentation

Ron Wyatt, who has been telling his tales of discovering Noah's Ark, the chariots of Pharaoh, the pillars of Solomon, the true Mt. Sinai, the tomb of the Patriarchs, Sodom & Gomorrah, the place of Christ's crucifixion, and the Ark of the Covenant for many years, has been documented as an archaeological fraud. Both former "friends" as well as professional archaeologists in his own denomination (Seventh- Day Adventist) have published detailed refutations of all of his "discoveries." Rather than go into such details here we refer those interested in the documentation against Wyatt to request a free packet of papers by archaeologists in Wyatt's denomination from: Dr. David Merling, Associate Director & Curator, Institute of Archaeology, Horn Archaeological Museum, Andrews University, Berrien Springs, MI 49104-0990.

I have heard all of this before, and I do believe that his belief that he discovered Noahs Ark would be a mistake, there were other claims he made that I would not agree with as well. Yet it would be a mistake to suggest everything he presented to us was fake. And of all the discoveries, Mt. Sinia, and the Red Sea Crossing site have been verfied by others. So this is pretty much were I would differ. I got the feeling as I followed his activities, especially as he got older that he was really losing it near the end of his life. And sad to say, some of his first findings have been questioned because of his strange behaviour later on, which is kind of a shame. Yet the ones I do believe in, I do so because of what others have confirmed.

I really believe God put such stories in the Bible, so unbelievers would use them to help justify their unbelief. Do you really believe God could create the universe, yet would be unable to create a talking snake? We know some birds can speak. Yet there are those in isolated places in the world, who would call you a liar, especially if you tried to convince them that such a thing were possible.

There was no talking snake - the Serpent is a reference to 'the Satan' one of God's creations who rebeled and decieved mankind.

Because some birds can speak, you think snakes can talk? Let's hope politicians don't get wind of this, as that would be one hell of a pork project.
