This explains the "walking on water" but what about the fishes and loaves?

So today I'm reading the news and I stumble into an article which speculates that one of the greatest "miracles" of all time could be a simple party trick or an illusion along the lines of Penn & Teller's shows in Las Vegas!

I'm not kidding.

From the website www.livescience.com:

"Rare conditions could have conspired to create hard-to-see ice on the Sea of Galilee that a person could have walked on back when Jesus is said to have walked on water, a scientist said today.

The study, which examines a combination of favorable water and environmental conditions, proposes that Jesus could have walked on an isolated patch of floating ice on what is now known as Lake Kinneret in northern Israel."

Are we to believe that Jesus is the biblical version Ashton Kutcher? Punking the Philistines?

I'm shocked, stunned, and kind of intrigued by this one... Forget the DaVinci Code... I want to see Jesus playing to packed crowds at Caesar's Palace... Maybe in the Herrod Room.
