They’re raising the dead! Today!

I ran into a 2009 web page from a Hawaiian Christian movement of some sort, where they claim a man was raised from the dead recently.

Even if you believe their report (I suspect the usual embellishments and exaggerations), it’s not as clear-cut as they advertise it.

Other miracles include a “multiplication of food” incident, and a healing of an incurable disease.

I’m tempted to say that it must be interesting to live in a less-developed country where this sort of miracle-belief and religious fervor is routine and everyday. But then again, the US is such a country, given our crappy standing on many indicators of social health. We might as well enjoy a culture where miracles are all you can hope for.
