I should think such a small item would have been snapped up by the first passing rich believer. You never know when you might need it and it is probably far better than Viagra. It would be a bit like a get-out-of-jail-free card in Monopoly 'cos you would only be able to 'use' it once and you never know when was your 'lucky day'. The question is, do you use it as an aphrodisiac or do you hang onto it in case you get cancer one day?

Mohels Aren't Paid Very Well, But They Get To Keep the Tips!

Foreskins have long been treasured by cosmetic dermatologists because they are rich in fibroblasts, tiny cells that play a crucial role in healing wounds and generating collagen and connective tissue. (One foreskin can be bioengineered into a piece of lab-grown skin the size of a football field.) The makers of Vavelta extract them by finely dicing the foreskins and treating them with enzymes. Then the fibroblasts are suspended in a proprietary cell storage medium and injected into "problem areas" with a fine gauge needle. In preliminary studies, Vavelta has worked well at eliminating wrinkles and scars without any side effects other than mild redness and itching (and the weirdness of knowing that you've got a foreskin in your face).

...And multiplied 10,000 times into a sheet the size of a football field, imagine how much the foreskin cells of a Messiah would fetch for the church which sold it?

.It is amazing how something like this has lasted for so long without being turned to dust by the winds of time...and how do you identify one small kids foreskin from anther? Maybe it is just a good marketing coup? What do people think?
Typical God-hating topic.

Talking about obvious fakes is hating a god?

I think you may be projecting what you feel about non-Christians.

I was telling a friend of mine about this discussion. He happens to work in a sort of assisted living home for retired priests. The next day when he went to work he asked one of the priests about it, and he said the priest just exploded in anger.

From what I have read, the Church officialdom has rejected the Holy Prepuce saga for a long time and has tried to strongly discourage any interest by the laity. I think at some point it embarrassed them profoundly enough that they want to pretend that it never happened, and certainly don't want to be reminded of it.

As the say goes "One should not draw attention to unpleasant things."
