What do you think is the cause of the stigmata cases that has been documented?
11-21-2004, 03:35 PM #2
A lot of the cases are fake.... self inflicted....
I also think the mind is a powerful thing... perhaps in a dillusional state the mind somehow affects the body and causes the wounds ? sounds far fetched , I know but it could be possible....
I do not think God is causing them... why would he want others to experience even a bit of the pain his son had to endure ?

I also think this is the most probable cause. But maby someone here has a bit more insight into the subject or know anyone that has suffered from this.
One thing I wonder though is if this phenomenon only occurs with christians or are the muslims, hindus ect that has gotten stigmata?

Dunno, I haven't seen any documented cases.
Usually when these things are scrutinized closely, you can figure out where the reality stops and the scam begins.
But ya, I'd like to see the documentation for myself.

While in Italy I went to the to the monastary of the deceased Padre Pio...while he was alive he experienced this several times...many vouched for its validity.

Johan, In the case of Muslim extremeists stigmata has caused them to actually blow up without the aid of suicide vests!

Many people wanna believe in things so bad that they dont see the scam. Believers will believe and doubters will doubt. No way to sway people from their beliefs even when the evidence is right in front of them.

if they are real they are more likely demonicly inspired - most dangerous poison in the world is carbon monoxide. why? because you dont know you are breathing in poison - it doesnt even need to harm you, just take the place of the real thing
