Hip and Thigh: Smiting Theological Philistines with a Great Slaughter. Judges 15:8

Oh, So that is how He did it?

Jesus Could Have Walked On Ice, Scientists Say.

In another desperate yet lame attempt to strip the biblical record of any supernatural acts by God, scientists now think rare conditions on the Sea of Galilee could have allowed Jesus to walk on hard to see ice. So, rather than being a display of Christ's divine sovereignty over His creation, He played like some second rate cable channel Tele-evangelist and tricked His disciples into believing he walked on water, when in fact it was a near invisible ice flows. I am sure that Lazarus fellow, if that is his "real" name, probably was in on Jesus's gig and faked being dead, too.

This is the second most goof explanation I have ever heard created to dismiss this particular miracle of Christ. The first was that the disciples saw a mirage that "merely" gave the appearance of Jesus walking on water, but the miracle happened in the middle of the night when no sun light was available to produce such an illusion. Now the scientists promoting this one only have to explain how any ice flow can stay intact during a windstorm producing heavy waves as Matthew's Gospel records (Mt. 14:22-33).

Is it possible for the Sea of Galilee to actually get ice?

According to these particular "scientists" there is a rare occurence of ice forming on the sea of Galilee, at least in the northern part, where a lot of artifacts from around the time of Jesus have been found.

Sounds like a lot of grasping at invisible straws if you ask me.

That was kind of a dirty trick Jesus played on Peter then, wasn't it?
