eXposed: How Did Jesus Walk On Liquid?

Shocking revelation!

Or not. Hehe. Jesus walked on sea water and not exactly a pool. Don't expect a "Da vinci Code" style here. If you're interested how that works then please read on.

There is a scientific explanation for the video, that fluid is called "Non-Newtonian Fluid" The mixture of that liquid is about 10 parts of cornstarch and 1 part water. I believe Wikipedia has a better explanation.

A non-Newtonian fluid is a fluid in which the viscosity changes with the applied strain rate. As a result, non-Newtonian fluids may not have a well-defined viscosity.

Although the concept of viscosity is commonly used to characterize a material, it can be inadequate to describe the mechanical behavior of a substance, particularly non-Newtonian fluids. They are best studied through several other rheological properties which relate the relations between the stress and strain tensors under many different flow conditions, such as oscillatory shear, or extensional flow which are measured using different devices or rheometers. The rheological properties are better studied using tensor-valued constitutive equations, which are common in the field of continuum mechanics.

I discovered this via Mark's Blog.
