Jesus Walked on Ice, Study Says

I am really speechless on this one. It amazes me what people will say and believe to explain away the miracles in the Bible.

Here is the latest...

A frozen patch floating on the surface of the small lake would have been difficult to distinguish from the unfrozen water surrounding it. The unfrozen water was comprised of the plumes resulting from salty springs situated along the lake's western shore in Tabgha -- an area where many archeological findings related to Jesus have been documented.

Here is a link to the article: Jesus Walked on Ice, Study Says

In the interest of objectivity, I have my own far-fetch idea of how Jesus actually walked on water. I think the picture on this post explains it.

So who do you think is right, them or me?

Here is the account of the incident in Matthew: Matthew 14:17-34

Humm, I think the guys that were there had it figured out:

Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God. - Matthew 14:33

Rarely am I at a loss for words... but you got me with this one.

This guy has it all figured out... except he forgot to tell us how that Peter also got out and walked on ice and was just too stupid to realize that it was ice he was standing on. And he forgot to tell to us that the other disciples had a collective IQ of 60, which is the only way you can account for them not being able to recognize ice on the water.

But it is from a University, and it is in print... so we have to believe it... right?

Well, I guess you can go with the snowmobile theory.

I think Dan Brown (Da Vinci Code) likes the snowmobile theory too. I'll have to see the movie to see if it makes it in.

Let's say this theory is correct. Isn't it amazing how those conditions occurred at the precise moment in time that Jesus needed them? Also, how did Jesus get TO the ice? Did He walk on the water until He reached the patch?

As a science teacher, I am embarrassed by the "explanations" the scientist give.

It takes more faith to believe their justifications than to believe there is a Creator!

I'm also appalled that Joe Citizen just accepts this just because "Mr. Scientist" says so! (Yet they won't accept God's Word just because He said so! HMMM!)

Sorry, folks, I think I'll take the explanation of the Creator of the universe. You can have the explanation of the created one.
