    Actually, I was wondering if they selected the right word... it could have just as easily been myth or fable... just wondering what the author meant by tale... I like to understand the intent behind the message... Just like selecting to use the word mad or angry... can be different in meaning yet many use them interchangeably.

    Ms Bobin stated...But I am guessing that you are actually taking exception to this being referred to as "a tale.

    Interesting guess? I love it when you guess... I think you have a 53.657 percent accuracy rating on your guesses. That is a great percentage considering it is me you are guessing about... you are engaging person Ms Bobin.

    I guess as a non-Christian, you wouldn't know. The myth of a man known as Jesus Christ walking on water to teach his apostles a lesson about faith.

    But I am guessing that you are actually taking exception to this being referred to as "a tale." More appropriately, one of the thousand of myths from the Bible used to explain what was then the unexplainable.
