Boy Who Came Back From Heaven’ actually didn’t

Post by AJRC »

Earlier this week, Alex recanted his testimony about the afterlife. In an open letter to Christian bookstores posted on the Pulpit and Pen Web site, Alex states flatly: “I did not die. I did not go to Heaven.”

Why do people believe this crap? I can understand believing in a god, but to believe a person let alone a child beggars belief. Are people so desperate to confirm their faith that they'll simply believe anything and anyone?

So to make money from the gullible religious folk all you have to do is say you've gone to heaven and seen god and he then sent you back? I can do that on a weekend. ;)

I agree, it's seems the father got a lot of attention and a lot of money. The mother seems to have been suspicious, but didn't really do anything. How christian of them all. ;)

Agreed. Where there's money to be made, the pious seem to have a memory lapse. They're no better than anyone else.
