CrossingRedSea.jpg Moses leading Israel through the Red Sea

The guys at Glue Society (Warning: not all of their stuff is edifying) have provided some unique Google Earth shots from biblical times including the creation of the Garden of Eden, the Crucifixion, the landing of Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat and now (to the left) Moses Crossing the Red Sea.

You can see them here (link fixed).

However, for some who were born yesterday, these are not real Google Earth satellite images, they are actually a couple of pictures God added to the back of the Bible when he dropped it down from heaven.
