Chariots in Red Sea: 'Irrefutable evidence'
World Net Daily ^ | June 7th, 2012 | Joe Kovacs

A news report that stunned the world nine years ago about the discovery of possible ancient chariot wheels at the bottom of the Red Sea is suddenly gaining fresh attention with new video claiming “irrefutable evidence” that corroborates the find.

In June 2003, WND interviewed Bible enthusiasts who dove the waters of the Red Sea, alleging they found and photographed parts of chariots that may be the actual remains of the catastrophe brought upon the Egyptian army which pursued the Israelites, according to the Book of Exodus in the Bible.

“I am 99.9 percent sure I picked up a chariot wheel,” said Peter Elmer, a forklift mechanic from Keynsham, England, who made two diving trips to the Gulf of Aqaba branch of the sea. “It was covered in coral.”

“I believe I actually sat in an ancient chariot cab,” he told WND at the time, referring to his time exploring a submerged item in the underwater junkyard. “Without question, it is most definitely the remains of the Egyptian army.”

Now, Michael Rood, a Hebrew-roots teacher, has produced a video proffering evidence Elmer is absolutely correct.

His DVD, titled “The Red Sea Crossing,” documents the work of numerous researchers from the U.S. and overseas who have probed an underwater land bridge between a beachhead at Nuweiba, Egypt, and what is today Saudi Arabia.

“What they found strewn across the bottom of the reed sea has shaken the religious and scientific community,” says Rood. “Cameras, mounted on remote-controlled submarines, revealed coral-encrusted chariot parts, horse and human remains strewn like battlefield wreckage on the bottom of the reed sea.”

He uses the term “reed sea” instead of Red Sea, as that’s the literal translation of the words “yam suph” in Holy Scripture, referring to the body of water God miraculously opened for the

2000+ year old human and horse remains in the sea.

I'm 99% sure that's silly.

The Exodus was about 1400+ BC, making it 3400+ years ago.

Yep! Wooden wheels or chariot cabs also.

Not necessarily, it would depend on the chemical composition of the water and the items. There of course would be no flesh but metals, wood or bone could have been reserved in whole or in part.

I have a good dvd on this topic called “The Exodus Revealed”.

I am sure it's just an amazing coincidence ;)

After all horses can probably swim for a mile or so pulling a chariot and soldiers. It was the first primitive battleship.

This is much easier to believe than the idea that Barry Sotelo or whatever was born in Hawaii. THAT is B.S.

There’s a reason it’s called “Wing Nut Daily.”

I would assume they mean swords, shields, helmets, etc. of the charioteers, and harness hardware, bridle bits, and metal decorations from the horses. That’s just a WAG, of course.

Interesting, but I’d like to see it from more reliable sources.

More reliable sources?
You mean like the ones who aren't even the slightest bit curious about Obama’s college transcripts or the Bilderbergs?
The media will never report anything that goes against their secular humanists religion.

If the 'reed sea' is an anaerobic environment, it is possible for there to be remains.

BUT... let's think outside the box a little.

Is is possible that after 'battle', that the 'winners' may have found it easier (and a lot less smellier) to shove all the remains of their enemies (and their dead fellow soldiers and dead horses) off into the water ????????????????????????????

Leaving a bunch of dead bodies laying around decaying is not exactly a good idea. Digging a big enough hole to dispose of all of them, is a huge drain on manpower, especially with battle weary troops.

I'm not so sure if the winners would have worried too much about the losers, and I don't think they were likely to hang around. But perhaps, to destroy their vehicles, arms, etc. I suppose.

If there are actual artifacts, I would hope that they would treat it as an archaeological dig with good documentation, etc. Your theory is a good one, but probably not if they have evidence of chariots and other heavy items a mile from shore.

I know nothing of the topography of the area, but most beachheads are flat or slightly sloping. It seems unlikely that fallen enemy soldiers would be dragged into deeper water, not to mention the horses.

I would bet these things are the result of shipwrecks or raft-wrecks where the raft or ship totally disintegrated or evidence of was ignored by the so called “archeologist”
