Walking under water - only once

This Scottish tabloid newspaper seems to be the only source of this story of a man you would normally descirbe as having lost any perception of reality. So coming from a tabloid it must be believeable.

A PRIEST has died after trying to demonstrate how Jesus walked on water.

Evangelist preacher Franck Kabele
, 35, told his congregation he could repeat the biblical miracle.

But he drowned after walking out to sea from a beach in the capital Libreville in Gabon, west Africa.

One eyewitness said: "He told churchgoers he'd had a revelation that if he had enough faith, he could walk on water like Jesus.

"He took his congregation to the beach saying he would walk across the Komo estuary, which takes 20 minutes by boat.

"He walked into the water, which soon passed over his head and he never came back."

So it naturally begs the question what was he thinking?

Why did he attempt such foolishness in the first place and try to trick his congregation into thinking he was more than just a mortal stupid man?

When he got half way in or even up to his shoulders in water why did he not realize that he was not walking on the water but in it and getting deeper?

Maybe this was his nomination for the Darwin Awards?
