    The ten Plagues of Egypt recounted in the Bible and which caused Pharaoh to let the Israelite slaves go free were nothing more than natural “population imbalances” caused by environmental factors, a leading scientist has claimed.

    I do not deny the environmental factors...it is what usually scientists refer to cause and effect.
    As paleo history and paleo astronautics is one of my oldest hobbies...when it comes to the history of the very first civilisations (egypt, india, sumer) the things are a bit more shady and the facts presented through old manuscripts are way beyond our actual scientific understanding so I preffer to take the things the way they were described whithout trying to search for scientific explanations. We all know that science has been proved wrong so many times in the last 300 - 500 years so what is a scientific truth today it might be wrong in a few years time.

    It is impossible to prove CATEGORICALLY who caused what. has man caused global warming for example? if YES then how come we have experiened an ice age that subsided LONG before man came on the scene and started polluting with greenhouse gsses which we are now told ? Not convinced? Then how about the FACT that there have been FOUR ice ages?

    If one believes that God exists (keeping in mind that the two main faiths Islam & Christianity believe in EXACTLY the same God) then one also has to believe that all things are the will of God, other than those where man exerts his God given right to free will. If one assumes this, then we must assume that the plagues WERE the will of god.

    IF god created the heavens and the earth and all things between, then the SAME God controls all things that are not man made, and it can be stretched that synthetic things are also god given as it is HE who has allowed them to be created.

    Saying, 'it was not God it was Science' is like saying 'it is not bread it is toast. ASSUMING of course there is belief in God in the first place. If however there is no belief in god, then why bother to prove that something/one that does not exist did not do something :D
