Assumed that scientists are extremely busy
people. However, we can assume that some of them, no, no, yes find a
moment to read the other best-sellers. Such as "The Da Vinci Code by Dan
Brown. How else to explain the desire to uncover the secrets of the Bible with science ...
Jesus walked on water is not as well on the ice, he decided to Doron
Nof of Florida University. In his view, the totality of the rarest of
climatic conditions could lead to the surface of the Sea of Galilee
invisible ice, able to withstand the weight of the person. In this case,
at a distance of ice would have been negligible, and outside observers
had the impression that Christ is really walking on water.
According to the study of climate in the northern parts of modern
Israel, the temperature dropped to -4 degrees Celsius for two days
during one of the two cold periods of 2500-1500 years ago. This weather
phenomenon coincided with the lifetime of Jesus Christ.
By reducing the temperature
could indeed form a floating section of ice above the saline flows from
the western shore of the lake near the town of Tabga. There has been
done many archaeological discoveries related to Jesus Christ.
Nof believes that over the last 120 centuries, the probability of such a
combination of weather conditions in Lake Kinneret is 1 in 1000. But
during the time period when Jesus lived like a floating ice could be
formed once every 30-60 years. According to the scientist, this ice
would be very difficult to discern, particularly if its surface was
smoothed by rain.
In 1990 Doron Nof has advanced the controversial deal to interpretation of one of the episodes of the exodus of Jews from Egypt
. Scholars have argued that it is possible to give a rational
explanation for the fact that the water in the Red Sea for some time
parted, allowing people, led by Moses, away from the pursuit of Egyptian
army. According to researchers, this unusual phenomenon was probably
triggered by features of the winds and sea currents.
Moreover, British researchers from the Royal Society of Medicine
concluded that one of the most significant symbols of Christianity, may
be erroneous. We are talking about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ .
Usually depicted Christ nailed hands and feet to the cross with outstretched arms and head upward.
Now, scientists have argued that there is no evidence that Christ was
crucified in this manner. They argue that the image of the Crucifixion
has never had sufficient evidence of the existence. The authors do not
dispute the fact of the Crucifixion. In their view, Christ could be
crucified in other ways, which inevitably lead to death.
established thousands of years and depended on the social status of the
victim and the crime they committed.Cross itself can be installed in a
variety of options, the victim could reside not only head up, but down
as well as in other positions. Sometimes the victim may have been nailed
through the hands and feet, and even the genitals, with outstretched
arms on the sides of the cross. Sometimes they are tied with ropes, not
Crucifixion as a form of punishment was
widespread among the Romans. This penalty is often applied to criminals
and rebels. Fulfill this punishment by the Roman soldiers, and none
survived after that.
The researchers note that
detailed descriptions of the crucifixion of Christ, which would be
plausible to modern realities of Christ's life, there is not one of the
Gospels - of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
one archaeological find evidence of the crucifixion. It is associated
with the name of a young Jew. Inscriptions in the tomb with the bones
found near the site of Givat a-Mitvar in Israel, suggests that his name
was Jerome Ben Agol. At the site of his "grave" was found 11.5-inch iron
nail that had clearly been beaten with a hammer in his heel when he was
attached to the cross. But there is no evidence that nails were driven
into the bone the wrist or forearm of the man.
At this motivated the researchers did not stop. They are no longer
haunted by the phenomenon of stigmata, randomly appearing in person
trickles of blood on the hands, feet and forehead - in the places where
he was wounded by Jesus during the crucifixion.
For two thousand years of Christ's wounds were marked by more than 300
people - says theologian, Ph.D. Anastasia Shatskaya. - And they had the
stigmata of a variety of shape and depth. Annals show that they are in
the form of build-up, deep, sometimes cutting bleeding wounds, as well
as small red spots, like bruises. Encountered stigmata round, oblong,
oval or even rectangular shape. In addition, many states stigmatikov
deformation of one shoulder, as if dropped under the weight of a huge
Although stigma exposed mostly deeply religious people,
wounds of Christ, oddly enough, appear in individuals is not religious.
Modern science does not deny the existence of the phenomenon
stigmatizma, believing that it is based on some not yet fully studied
the properties of the human psyche. Scientists believe that the cause of
the wounds were self-hypnosis, psychological and emotional
predisposition of some people to learn from the pain of Christ. convincing explanation for this phenomenon has yet been found .
Church of the miracles associated with the appearance of stigmata of
bleeding or mystical, is not welcomed. In the XVI century Council of
Trent Catholic Church called this phenomenon "tricks of Satan." But for
ordinary parishioners stigmata always a sign of purity and perfection.
