“people need food and water”
I actually do have a good deal of willingness to accept that it is not biologically possible for a person to live with such minimal nourishment as a wafer for fifty-three years (as is claimed for Marthe Robin) or thirty-six years as claimed for Thèrése.
On the other hand, I feel revulsion at the thought, as was discussed with my mother in the bathroom today, that if inedia were really possible:
- famine would be solved completely
- there would be no restaurants or food delicacies
- there would be no food production
