With Prayer, Rebecca’s Badly Burned Hand Healed In Just 15 Hours (See Photo). It Wouldn’t Be a Lie, Would It? November 17, 2013

With Prayer, Rebecca’s Badly Burned Hand Healed In Just 15 Hours (See Photo). It Wouldn’t Be a Lie, Would It?

Miracles happen every day, a woman named Rebecca exclaims on her Facebook page.

For instance? Behold, the curious vanishing of Rebecca’s awful burn wound:


(***UPDATE***: In a subsequent post, Rebecca doubled — quintupled? — down on her claim, saying that the healing was complete by 10 a.m., not 10 p.m.)

She offers no further information, so we are left with questions.

  • Were there any independent witnesses to the incident, and to the healing?
  • Is that a poor Photoshop job I see around the tip of the forefinger in the second photo?
  • Why does the hand on the left look much more rugged than the smooth-skinned specimen on the right?
  • Why do the two images look as if they were taken with different cameras?
  • Why the marked change in skin color?
  • Where the thumb and forefinger meet, why does hand number one seem much thicker and fleshier than hand number two?
  • The pronounced knuckles in the photo on the left have almost completely disappeared in the photo on the right; how come?

On reflection, I can’t bring myself to believe that Rebecca is lying. You? I mean, she’s a Christian. Surely she knows the 10 Commandments and the prohibition on bearing false witness. So that can’t be it. Her story and her photos have to be real, then.

That’s wonderful. I wonder if Rebecca could now show the medical professionals at the nation’s burn centers what they’ve been doing wrong since, well, forever.
