ANAGRAMMATT OF THE "MIRACLE" FISH!
The Christian fish and the pagan conection...!
The Coin in the Fishes "mouth"...!
One Stater or "Estatero" equivalent to 4 Dracmas! Tax of the Temple!
GOD of the Bible is not a God of fate, fortune, and good luck, coin throwing...! [Well not in things to do with "disputes" and their holy religion!]
18 A toss of a coin ends disputes, and settles the issue between strong opponents.
27 But so that we don't offend them, go to the lake and throw out a hook. Take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth, you will find a four drachma coin. Take that and give it to them for me and you."
Diccionario biblico: Estater-Estatero
Moneda* griega grande de plata, también conocida como tetradracma (4 dracmas;
Mt. 17:27; tal vez también Mr. 12:15); equivalía a 2 didracmas, a 4 denarios y
a un siclo. Las tetradracmas más comunes procedían de Tiro, sobre la costa
mediterránea. La moneda pesaba unos 17,5 g y era la que se usaba
corrientemente para pagar el tributo* del templo (fig 170).
The Pagan fish symbol
The 'fish symbol' is today instantly recognised as a Christian symbol but this symbol was in use by Pagans for many generations before Christianity.
Ask any neo-pagan and they will explain the most common interpretation is its derivation from a simplified image of a woman's womb or vagina. The fish symbol was often drawn by overlapping two thin crescent moons, signifying a woman's monthly cycle.
...to the miracles of the Bible! A fish that had a coin in its mouth of quite some value!...!
All kinds of things have been found in big fishes belies, as also allegedly Johna...!
Matthew 17:27 and Proverbs 18:18...!
So a tax was paid using a miracle to trick once more his disciples to be more faithfull followers!
Why not make the coins appear in his hands but not in his pockets...???
The more you throw a coin, the more the probability equates to 50% = 1/2 = 0.5, where probaility is normally between 0 <= p <= 1
If you talk of a probability smaller than "0", it would merely enphasize the improbability or imposibility!
If you talk of a probability greater than "1", it would emphasize the probability of more than 100% certain probaility or posibility!
CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME OF WHAT YOU CAN BE 100% CERTAIN IN "REALITY" AND NOT IN A "imaginary ideal pure science of" Mathematics?
The answer is very few things, or really and trully nothing...!
In common daily talk, we can say that we can be certain we all will die...! But a Prophet of the Bible, was taken to heaven in a whirl wind to never see death...!
The Bible claims that all human forms will "resurrect"...!
In pure logic, we cannot demand or claim such things as "resurrection"! It is of no concern, unless there be a after life "judgement"!
WHAT WE ARE SURE IS THAT IF THE FISH HAD THE "COIN" ONLY IN ITS MOUTH, IT COULD HAVE SURVIVED AND BE THROWN BACK INTO THE WATER!
FOR THOSE ANCIENT DAYS, I DOUBT THE FISH WOULD HAVE SURVIVED A GUT/BELLY OPERATION TO GET AT THE COIN...!
Fresh, salted, cooked or dried...?
Fresh water or the Ocean...?
