South African 'resurrection' hoax goes viral

Recommended Posts

What the heck is a "viral internet phenomenon"? 

It's just a video of a religious figure propegating a hoax. Something that has happened many many times and will likely carry on many many more times.

Two questions come to mind. Was it actually intended that people believe that a dead man was brought back to life, or was this merely a sort of religious 'theatre', where a supposed miracle from scriptures was being reenacted?

I once saw a man in a white robe dragging a wooden cross, whilst being whipped by two men dressed as Roman soldiers. They made their way to a local church, at Easter. I didn't jump to the conclusion that they were literally trying to pass the robed man off as Jesus.

Had the supposed dead man in this case received a certificate of death? Not proof, of course, since mistakes have been made, but if he had, it would strengthen and add interest to the claimed resurrection. If there was no deal certificate, the economical solution is, of course, that he was not dead.

Words "pastor, religion (link to God) and hoax" don't seems to go well together

After embalming... you are surely and definitively dead.

If you follow a douche who calls himself 'prophet', you are a fool.
Also, if you give money to a 'church' that isn't 100% transparent about its non-profit charity work, you are a fool.
These people/organizations should be forced to put 'for entertainment purposes only' and 'I am a performer' in big letters on every sign and pamphlet they put out.
