Jesus fed 5000 people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish

This is 1 of the 1000's of tall tales in the fable believers call the bible. Since I was a small child and a Chrisitian I always wondered how was this possible?

They didnt have sliced bread back then

How big were these "fish" the people ate?

Where did Jesus get the bread from?

I was under the impression was that he somehow cloned the fish and bread with his magical powers?

I agree with the clone idea. This is why everyone had to eat bread and fish. If he didn't need to clone what was already there, and could just summon up anything then why didn't Jesus serve up some deep dish pizza and coke. (in glass bottles of course)

Five thousand people. How many people is that?
I'm not dumb but I have difficulty saying how many people are in a crowd.

How literate or numerate was the witness for this event? Could he tell 50 people from 500 people? Or 500 people from 5000?

Was numeracy common back then? How good was the education system?

Why Ronald McDonald is better than Jaysus:

0.2% fish aroma + 0.5% bread flavor + 99.3% tasteless shit = thousands of Filet-O-Fish - every day!

Proof enough that Ronnie is the true Savor - er, Savior!

nice one vespertilio, couldn't have explained it better myself,but my intentions were not to interpret the scripture but to share what most the people here have shun away from due to their past personal experiences. I'm taking part in this blog to propose what has been proposed to you before, that god does exist.okay i don't know how to go about this but let me try this,most atheist complain about god being too strict,that the thing,sin is like fried chicken it is taste so good, but like chicken it can be so deadly with all that grease that just fills up in your heart,it could kill you, but not instantly. so so people not wanting to stop sinning they just rather tell themselves there is no god. man!!! i'm really not good at this, but one thing i'm certain of is god exist

yoh! doone man,said this before i'm gonna say it again i am not here to debate if jesus was real or not,just here to share my experience.i accepted christ 2 years ago and i can tell you in those past 2 years my life has been completely transformed, and when you know something in your heart,nothing anyone says or do can change how you feel. i'm not here to judge anyone but just to ask if you sure you made the rigth decision of turnig away from the son of god, and you should know that everyone will be held accountable for their actions. like the chicken i take it as a complement to be a chicken for god.
