The Science of Miracles
Passover is upon us, providing a superb opportunity for reflecting on the original event as well as the miracle of the Exodus. A number of scientific theories have attempted to explain how the plagues and the Red Sea crossing could be accounted for by natural causes, and these are worth considering. The most full-blown of the scientific explanations was set forth by epidemiologist John Marr (one-time Director of Public Health in New York City) and fellow researcher Curtis Molloy.
