Quite an entertaining tale from the Manchester Faith & Culture Examiner. She relates a tale about how a cracker and wine at a remote Italian church nearly 40 years ago actually turned into flesh and blood (I guess all you other Catholics who went to mass for years never seeing such a thing just weren’t worthy of your god’s true magical goodness) and then offers this challenge:
Here’s the Atheist’s challenge. Disprove the science involving Eucharistic Miracles.
Here’s the challenge for the ignorant: learn about burden of proof.
Let me explain to you how burden of proof works. When someone makes a claim, it’s their responsibility to give reasons for why someone should accept the claim. That’s the burden of proof, and it’s the burden of the claimant, not the one presented with the claim to prove it false. In other words, proving a miracle claim is the Christian’s cross to bear.
Ever notice how these stories take place either many decades ago, in remote areas, or both? Curious too how we never hear of aliens abducting people from Times Square, but rather from remote Nebraska farms. Why is that? Hmmmm….
