    Me too.

    It's amazing how deep people are into religion.

    Very sad that someone would do this. :frown:

    On the other hand - he probably gets the Darwin Award for 2006. :rolleyes: :uhh:

    This is not a reliable news source. For a long time they reported on the alien base located at the bottom of the ocean - a fact according to this news source.

    Sad to hear of someone dying but when you see the manner in which they have the mind boggles at how people can have such strong faith in something that is clearly impossible (unless you freeze the water first or run very fast).

    Which makes one wonder if ET abducts mermaids. :rolleyes:

    Question. Do ETs get abducted by other ETs? :biggrin:

    I have my doubts this is real.

    I would be very amazed at the discipline and/or faith needed to keep walking and fight off basic survival instincts.

    You ruined all the fun now. :frown:

    Thanks for letting me know now. You never know when people will back up their silly arguments with that website.

    Are you sure you aren't thinking of the Weekly World News (supermarket tabloid)?
    WorldNetDaily is just a conservative leaning news organization.

    I'm pretty sure I'd realize I wasn't actually walking on water when my armpits got wet. Or maybe he thought he was walking down stairs on water.

    Maybe he has very sweaty armpits and couldn't tell the difference.

    "Leaning"? This source is pegged to the right wall.

    Uh oh, maybe... but the part about walking into the water while drowning sounds like nonsense.

    Extreme right; tabloid; is there a difference? :biggrin:
