I believe

Ok, so there's this scientist guy who says that Jesus could have walked on a patch of ice instead of water. Possibly through "a rare combination of water and atmospheric conditions in the sea of Galilee, 2000 yrs. ago."

#1-its a THEORY meaning not fact!

#2-"a rare combination" means not exactly an everyday, concrete occurance, that could or could not have happened.

#3-He has no idea what the temperature was or which way the wind was blowing or if someone farted!

#4-He says he's received hateful e-mails since his article was published-that's a great way to witness and convince someone to believe in God!

I have faith in the Bible and it's truth, but I must admit when I first saw the headline I was irritated. If you call yourself a Christian and you know what you believe in and have faith in miracles why would you let some guy's theory ruffle your feathers?

Here's a thought: if you don't want people to pay attention to something-don't acknowledge it, picket, ban or otherwise put it in the spotlight!

I just think that we need a smarter approach to issues. Maybe we could point out that we have written, eye-witness accounts of the many amazing miracles and events in the Bible. Or that this is just one person's theory that may or may not have even occured, just like at that moment a pig could have flown across the sky, if a rare combination of events took place. Besides, even if there happened to be at just that moment in time, a rare atmospheric occurence, and there was a patch of ice in the middle of a lake, technically the Sea of Galilee is a lake, and it's nowhere near Antarctica, isn't that quite a miracle?

Did anybody see that "gospel of Judas" gig the other night? I missed it.
