Walking On Water

Maybe that little trick is best left to the experts as an evangelist drowns giving it the old college try:
An evangelist who tried replicating Jesus' miracle of walking on water has reportedly drowned off the western coast of Africa.

Pastor Franck Kabele, 35, told his congregation he could repeat the biblical miracle, and he attempted it from a beach in Gabon's capital of Libreville.

"He told churchgoers he'd had a revelation that if he had enough faith, he could walk on water like Jesus," an eyewitness told the Glasgow Daily Record.

"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 as the water is passing over your head, at what point do you think "OK, maybe this isn't going to work?"

To answer your question... perhaps he was an optimist ("was" being the operative word). Where would mankind be today if people just quit at the first hint of failure?

True. I guess it's good these people remove themselves from the gene pool from time-to-time, then.
