Your columnist Dr. Wren, always a one with supernatural leanings, has excelled herself this time.
She “heard a story last weekend” that has all the hallmarks of urban legend, and quite irresponsibly she imposes it uon Star readers.
She strongly implies that an unnamed patient recovered from an extremely rare, barely understood brain tumour, as a result of him and his wife praying. T
he fact that his recovery coincided with a long course of radiotherapy is mentioned almost in passing whilst the article is full of implication that supernatural powers were involved.
Amazingly, she suggests we leave room for “the supernatural, or miracles.”
She states, “In other countries people are very aware of the reality” “of the spiritual realm and take it into account when seeking help with health problems.” What is she, a witch doctor?
Dr Wren concludes by stating that “there are many recorded miracles throughout history.”
How many, what were they, what happened, when?
More importantly, which ones stand up to thorough scientific analysis.
I suggest the answer is none and I look forward to any contradictory evidence, and I do mean evidence, from Dr, Wren or any Star reader.
