Did you know Jesus walked on ice?
Well, because a Oceanography professor at Florida State University did a study on atmospheric pressure and water in Northern Israel lead physorg.com to publish an article that states that: "...it's more likely that [Jesus] walked on an isolated patch of floating ice."
And if this were not ridiculous enough...the story has also been picked up by CNN.
The professor who did this ridiculous study is Doron Nof, who published his article in the Journal of Paleolimnology. Nof isthe same professor who's research I learned about in college. In the early 1990's Nof did a popular study that showed how wind and sea conditions could have naturally caused the parting of the Red Sea.
I don't understand Nof...he believes in the biblical history enough to want to prove how Jesus' miracles could have actually happened, but not as miracles at all. Can he, Florida State University, the Journal of Paleolimnology and CNN not step back enough to see the ridiculousness of this.
All I know is that there is a lot of notariaty in reinventing new explinations of Biblical History: Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Da Vinci Code, The Jesus Papers. Also Kanye West might write a new song called "Jesus Floats."
