The Incorruptible Saints - The Deception

21111876_xxl_resize.jpg
St. Charles Borromoeo (1538-1584), St. Philip Neri (1515-1595) are saints whose bodies are said to be “incorruptible” and “undoubtedly miraculous”. In these cases and in many other cases the viscera (internal organs) were removed and the bodies were treated for preservation. 339

Saints bodies are also kept in glass cases. Using techniques to remove oxygen from inside the glass case, creates a vacuum that helps with the preservation of the bodies. Also freeze drying is another preservation technique used. 344
There are “incorruptible” saints bodys’ which look dry, darkened and wrinkled, these are consistent with appearance of mummification techniques. 339

Clothing and wax face masks are techniques used to hide the decayed body. This is the case with Saint Bernadette of Lourdes and many other saints. 339
 

They are profiting from you


The amount of money these sites receive from pilgrims is plentiful. Lourdes alone receives $400 million annually. 339 They are well-rehearsed hoaxes and they are banking your money. Everyone who visits these sites will donate willingly as they naturally believe they will be blessed more and their prayers will be heard as these are allegedly miraculous sites.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Vatican receives a percentage for their involvement in “validating” these alleged miraculous sites. Remember it is in the interest for the Vatican to validate these sites, so people do not leave Christianity.

Joe Nickell states in ‘The Science of Miracles’:
“The Majority of the pious public has naively fallen victim to the great propaganda, the talk of the apparitions and the feelings. These people themselves have become the greatest propaganda for the event. They do not even stop to think that the truth has been hidden by deliberate falsehood. They do not know that not one miraculous healing has occurred that could have been verified by competent experts.”  339
