  1. Hey, guys

    Great show this week…as usual. I got a lot out of the discussion because I have gotten sideways looks when discussing that there are “natural” explanations for biblical miracles.

    I wanted to also point out, in light of what you guys talked about regarding the timing of things, the other side of that is the fact that there was also a very interesting timing issue with regards to not only when each plague happened, but when it ended!

    Even with a naturalistic explanation for these, that doubles the number of very unusual “coincidences” with regards to the Egyptian plagues.

    Thanks, guys! Love the show! L

      Hey Daniel,
      Excellent point on the timing of the plagues ending. We don’t want to remove the hand of God at work here, and that goes to show there are some fascinating corollaries!
