Astrophysicist Donald Menzel of Harvard once suggested that the pillar of fire of the OT was nothing more than a sun pillar (a mirage made by the sun's reflection). Does such a suggestion have any plausibility? Why or why not?
& what about the pillar of cloud???

& the smoke on the mountain? & the cloud in the tabernacle?
i would just like to know, if we follow the whole story how a mirage holds back an entire army & then when it allows the army to pass, they get sucked into another mirage of a water grave.

maybe the mirage is... there is just too much technology & people are too smart for me today ( i am just a big, bible, dummy, believer) & just believe it without too many explanations.:)
