Keep your mythology out of science, and we will keep science out of your mythology.

And remember:

"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side!"

Hokie alert!
"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side!"

As you believe; so shall you receive.

NIV Exodus 14:5-28
 5.  When the king of Egypt was told that the people had fled, Pharaoh and his officials changed their minds about them and said, "What have we done? We have let the Israelites go and have lost their services!"
 6.  So he had his chariot made ready and took his army with him.
 7.  He took six hundred of the best chariots, along with all the other chariots of Egypt, with officers over all of them. 
 8.  The LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, so that he pursued the Israelites, who were marching out boldly.
 9.  The Egyptians--all Pharaoh's horses and chariots, horsemen and troops--pursued the Israelites and overtook them as they camped by the sea near Pi Hahiroth, opposite Baal Zephon.
 10.  As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the LORD.
 11.  They said to Moses, "Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt?
 12.  Didn't we say to you in Egypt, `Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians'? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!"
 13.  Moses answered the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 
 14.  The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."
 15.  Then the LORD said to Moses, "Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.
 16.  Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.
 17.  I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them. And I will gain glory through Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen.
 18.  The Egyptians will know that I am the LORD when I gain glory through Pharaoh, his chariots and his horsemen."
 19.  Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel's army, withdrew and went behind them. The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them,
 20.  coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel. Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long.
 21.  Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided,
 22.  and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.
 23.  The Egyptians pursued them, and all Pharaoh's horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea.
 24.  During the last watch of the night the LORD looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion.
 25.  He made the wheels of their chariots come off  so that they had difficulty driving. And the Egyptians said, "Let's get away from the Israelites! The LORD is fighting for them against Egypt."
 26.  Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen."
 27.  Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea went back to its place. The Egyptians were fleeing toward  it, and the LORD swept them into the sea.
 28.  The water flowed back and covered the chariots and horsemen--the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed the Israelites into the sea. Not one of them survived.
NIV Exodus 15:1-4
 1.  Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the LORD: "I will sing to the LORD, for he is highly exalted. The horse and its rider he has hurled into the sea.
 2.  The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him.
 3.  The LORD is a warrior; the LORD is his name.
 4.  Pharaoh's chariots and his army he has hurled into the sea. The best of Pharaoh's officers are drowned in the Red Sea.
NIV Deuteronomy 11:2-7
 2.  Remember today that your children were not the ones who saw and experienced the discipline of the LORD your God: his majesty, his mighty hand, his outstretched arm;
 3.  the signs he performed and the things he did in the heart of Egypt, both to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to his whole country;
 4.  what he did to the Egyptian army, to its horses and chariots, how he overwhelmed them with the waters of the Red Sea  as they were pursuing you, and how the LORD brought lasting ruin on them.
 5.  It was not your children who saw what he did for you in the desert until you arrived at this place,
 6.  and what he did to Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab the Reubenite, when the earth opened its mouth right in the middle of all Israel and swallowed them up with their households, their tents and every living thing that belonged to them.
 7.  But it was your own eyes that saw all these great things the LORD has done.

NIV Deuteronomy 20:1
  When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you.
NIV Psalms 20:7
   Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
NIV Isaiah 31:1
  Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who rely on horses, who trust in the multitude of their chariots and in the great strength of their horsemen, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel, or seek help from the LORD.
