The Miracle On Ice

8:00 AM -- Well. If the pseudoreligiously-inclined are going to be mucking about with science, I guess there's no keeping the pseudoscientifically-inclined from mucking about with religion. Reuters brings us the tale of yet another academic with too much time on his hands:

    The New Testament says that Jesus walked on water, but a Florida university professor believes there could be a less miraculous explanation -- he walked on a floating piece of ice...

    Nof, a professor of oceanography at Florida State University, said on Tuesday that his study found an unusual combination of water and atmospheric conditions in what is now northern Israel could have led to ice formation on the Sea of Galilee.
This was actually published in something called the "Journal of Paleolimnology." Paleolimnology is a discipline that concerns the study of tired crap.

Still to be explained is the miracle of Prof Nof being able to enunciate so clearly with his rectum.
