Jesus used dark energy to walk on water

    ok, so I am being a wee bit speculative here.
    But let me explain why I think this before you scoff, scorn and scowl.

    Firstly dark energy must exist or else all the mass in the universe would be
    pulled together by gravity into a single big blob of matter.

    So there must be a 'force' that overpowered gravity in the early stage
    of the universe to be able to split all the mass into separate celestial bodies.

    Now we know that God created the universe, so dark energy must be a
    creative force of mind that God used to split up the singularity at the
    start of the universe. And Jesus walked on water due to faith, so he
    must have used something to overpower gravity, and the only candidate
    is the mysterious dark energy.

    So dark energy is faith.

    I just can't figure out the details; yet.
    Any inspiration would be appreciated.

    Wrong. Jesus was simply lighter than air. Everyone knows that demigods are composed largely of helium.

    Dark energy isn't a force.

    I kind of assumed it was just a dream.

    "152:4.2 Darkness descended upon them, for there had arisen a strong and contrary wind which made progress almost impossible. As the hours of darkness and hard rowing passed, Peter grew weary and fell into a deep sleep of exhaustion. Andrew and James put him to rest on the cushioned seat in the stern of the boat. While the other apostles toiled against the wind and the waves, Peter dreamed a dream; he saw a vision of Jesus coming to them walking on the sea. When the Master seemed to walk on by the boat, Peter cried out, "Save us, Master, save us." And those who were in the rear of the boat heard him say some of these words. As this apparition of the night season continued in Peter's mind, he dreamed that he heard Jesus say: "Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid." This was like the balm of Gilead to Peter's disturbed soul; it soothed his troubled spirit, so that (in his dream) he cried out to the Master: "Lord, if it really is you, bid me come and walk with you on the water." And when Peter started to walk upon the water, the boisterous waves frightened him, and as he was about to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" And many of the twelve heard him utter this cry. Then Peter dreamed that Jesus came to the rescue and, stretching forth his hand, took hold and lifted him up, saying: "O, you of little faith, wherefore did you doubt?"
