The Incorruptibles. Jaxerback posted:8/10/2013 10:02:59 PM Do some "saints" bodies remain forever incorruptible as the church claims? Is it all just wax and lies? http://skeptoid.com/episodes/4126bobprin posted:8/11/2013 6:10:21 AM Sometimes yes, a dead body does not decay. Take the case of pennsylvania general Anthony (mad anthony) Wayne. A hero in the revolutionary war he died an ignominious death in Erie, pa. After TWO years his son learned of his death and wished to inter his famous father in the family plot near philly. The son traveled to Erie in a wagon to retrieve him. They dug him up, there was no coffin, his clothes had rotted but the flesh was still intact. However, it being july the body did begin to rot and the son had to do something. So they chopped him up, boiled the flesh off his bones, poured the mad anthony soup back in the grave and the bones were carted away. On the way to Philly the wagon was upset in an accident and the bones scattered on the road in the mud. His ghost is said to lurk there searching for a few lost bones.gary107 posted:8/11/2013 10:08:35 AM delightful tale, shame the story does not include the account of his relatives drinking the soup. It would have added just the right flavour.Jaxerback posted:8/11/2013 7:34:59 PM What?? Shudders....
