rather nifty videos.  that one about the fly is very curious and I wonder about the mechanism involved.

the last one about the cataracts makes me sad but glad that humans have advanced medicine enough to help people.   And it's a good one to counter the theist claim of how "perfect" the world is for humans.  High solar radiation (altitude or equatorial) that contributes to blindness in humans is a pretty stupid idea of "perfect".  :P

Graybeard, cool videos.  You're right, this does provide a more scientific explanation for the resurrection.

I guess I didn't realize Jesus died from drowning, not on a cross.  I also forgot that he was buried in salt; I don't remember seeing that in the gospel accounts.  Also, up until now I hadn't realized he was a fly.  I always assumed he was a person: none of the gospel accounts mention his wings.  My mistake.

well, MiC, the problem is that your "son of God" didn't exist and thus didn't die any particular way.   These videos show how such silly claims as in your myths could be duplicated to happen and in very explainable ways.
