    What if Jesus saw rocks in the water then proceeded to walk on the rocks instead of the water.

    I heard he was the fucking son of god/god himself, but whatever.

    But seriously what a lame stunt for a god, why couldn't he have flown, or better yet teleported? Yeah that'd be awesome especially with some awesome special effects, make it like a DBZ powerup then he teleports over and kamahamehas all the fish in the lake!

    Concerning the ice, it actually needs to be quite thick to hold the weight of a full-grown human.

    BTW: What if Moses just made the tablets with the 10 commandments himself? He could have.

    the real question is, why are miracles needed in order to reinforce ones faith. Miracles are not the point of religion. Undue emphasis is put on them. If ones faith relies on the validity of miracles, then their faith is paper thin and transparent.

    It should be mentioned Peter himself lacked faith, and the Bible REALLY points this out.

    Generally, miracles like this are supposed to be examples of faith. It probably represented that while Peter did have faith, it often crumbled under the wrong kind of pressure.

    Miracles are the healing balm for a weakening faith. If God bombarded us with miracles then their would be no need for faith and everyone would be a christian.

    There was a magician on the History channel a while back who had an entire hour long program trying to emulate the miracles of Moses, Joshua, David and Jesus. He couldn't emulate a single one using trickery. He even went so far as to go to the exact geographical spot that Jesus most likely would have performed the water walking in the story.

    There were no rocks anywhere near the middle of that lake, and the climate is all wrong for ice. The guy's only conclusion was that if the story were true, then Jesus genuinely did defy a law of physics and walk on water.

    The other explanation, of course, is that certain parts of the Bible are very much embellished. I tend to lean towards that explanation, if for no other reason than because I've never seen a man walk on water and know it's not physically possible.

    The way I see it is that miracles were seen as necessity to keep the religion, otherwise if you take them away from the NT what've you got but a bunch of teachings saying to be nice? Then there's no reason to go to church and be part of a religion and we all know those churches don't pay for themselves.

    Of course that's not all but whatever.


    Rofl, according to what you just said god himself doesn't want everyone to find salvation. Then again god would also have to make it known he was the christain god, or else any flaming pillars or parting oceans could go to any religion. You forget yours isn't the only one :/

    Man I've never seen two sentences made of more fail.

    I'd be more impressed if he had permanently cured disease and stopped poverty. If you're gonna be god and have powers, why do petty shit?

    I agree, but we were talking about the definition of a miracle! it does not matter if it is big or small!

    second (and I have said this like a million times now!) religion is based on faith...nothing else but faith, you either chose to believe or not!

    If he did a miracle like you suggested then we wouldn't be arguing now, faith would not be important! (sure this would have solved a lot of problems and religious people should think why God doesn't just reveal himself and be done with it!)
