Sorry Kathy,

You've just hit against the courtroom or pulpit dilemma of being
faced with an unprovable single-witness 'miraculous' assertion.

It's been rephrased by Lee Smolin as: "Both the genuinely pious
and the genuinely schizophrenic can claim to speak the thoughts
of the divine." - in 'The Life of the Cosmos'.


Cheers
