Is there any natural explanation for the parting of the Red Sea that allowed Moses and the children of Israel to cross and elude the pharaoh’s army (Exodus 14)?

Researchers have proposed that a 63-mile-per-hour wind blowing for several hours could have pushed back a wall of water. But does such an explanation make the parting of the Red Sea somehow more probable?

The Bible indicates that the Creator of the universe used a force of nature (wind). Not all miracles need be violations of natural laws; though the timing shouts God’s sovereign control.

Furthermore, scientific research can neither prove nor disprove this historical event. We can know for sure what happened because we have a reliable eyewitness account: God recorded what He did in the Bible.
