We ask that nontheist participation respect the theistic views of others and not seek to undermine theism in general, or advocate for nontheism. Such posts are more suited for and allowable in Apologetics 301 with very little restriction.

    Indeed. I have followed the reduction in water levels on Gennesaret very closely during recent years. Much of the drainage was caused by pumps irrigating nearby land but this has been stopped and water levels are rapidly regaining now.

    The drought has helped in the discovery of ancient fishing craft, equipment, and the stone anchors found are most interesting. The anchors could give a whole new meaning to Simon's title, Cephas.

    The Capernaum foreshore ran out for hundreds of meters, back in 2018, it gave a very clear view of how shallow the Northern foreshore is when there is water present. The Eastern shore by the Geresenes/Gadarenes is much steeper/deeper, where the sows ran down in to the sea from the steep hillsides.

    Maybe a jet ski was involved!
