If Joseph of Coppertino could levitate, apparently through the power of God, why couldn't Simon Magus do it also, likely through some other power?QuaziWashboard said:Question to any Christian believers amongst us;
Do you think that Simon Magus could actualy levitate (or had other magical powers) or do you think that it was probably a trick of some sort?
Or it may indeed have been a trick. What was the 1950s film where Jack Palance played Simon Magus using "flying gear"?
Since the entire Simon Magus "levitation" story is post-Biblical it's hardly a matter of faith. (For that matter, by no means everything IN the New Testament is salvation-dependent.)
P. S. I've met several modern-day Gnostics who believe that Jesus Christ was fictional/mythological but who fully accept the historicity of Simon Magus. Give me a break.
