"The New Testament story describes Jesus walking on water in the Sea of Galilee but according to a study led by Florida State University Professor of Oceanography Doron Nof, it's more likely that he walked on an isolated patch of floating ice."In an effort to dispel the ancient "myth" of the walking-on-water account, a team of scientists has done research on what is known as "springs ice". When a salty spring flows into a freshwater lake, the heavier saltwater sinks to the bottom, creating a temperature imbalance that can lead to ice formation above the saltwater. This only occurs in calm water when the air temperature is at or near freezing. These scientists have decided that since Jesus "couldn't" have really been walking on water, he must have been walking on ice that happened to form just at the right time for this to occur. They say that the chances of this happening today in the Sea of Galilee are about "once in 10,000 years" but that the odds "might" have been higher around two thousand years ago during a "prevailing climate" - whatever that means. I will post my opinion on this startling new piece of "evidence" soon. For now, I am asking my readers to contribute their views via comment. Perhaps we can get some controversy here!
