1.) Uncommon or rare because it's difficult.
2.) Catholics/Christians don't usually starve.

7.) The Shroud of Turin will be retested.
8.) I behold Him in the Eucharist with the eyes of Faith

Irish covered most of this, but I just had to be amused that Christians want to use science on the Shroud of Turin but when that science gives them an answer that they don't like, they try to ignore it.
I also love how you say that God only cares for those who obey him in that "Catholics/Christians don't usually starve". So much for a "good" deity.
and people in the future will consider eating chicken wrong? Oh, please tell me of this "prophecy"
oooh, and please tell me how you can tell the difference between the metaphor and the literal bits of the Bible?
