Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano proven false?


I have been in a discussion with an atheist about the Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano, Italy. He has actually gotten a hold of the Italian doctor’s paper, and says it has proven the miracle false. This, of course, deserves some sort of response, doesn’t it? What do you think?

Physician Tells of Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano
Edoardo Linoli Verified Authenticity of the Phenomenon

. Has anyone other than this athiest, who hasn’t tested the tissue, refuted Linoli’s findings?

Has an objective scientist examined the athiest’s comments?

The Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano has been proved valid by science. Scientific tests were done on the Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano and it was proved that it is real human flesh and blood. To me, that is plenty of evidence that the Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano is a valid Eucharistic miracle. Not to mention that the Vatican recognizes this Eucharistic miracle as a valid one. The Eucharistic Miracle of Lanciano is my favorite Eucharistic miracle. :thumbsup:
