Incorrupt Bodies of the Saints?
Frankly the whole thing fascinates me. I honestly don't believe there is anything supernatural about it but I would like to get other non-believers opinions about how the bodies stay like this. I'm going to read up on it myself but first I'd like to read what all of you think.

She said all a body would have to do there was to go around all day long with a harp and sing. So I didn't think much of it. But I never said so. I asked her if she reckoned Tom Sawyer would go there, and she said not by a considerable sight. I was glad about that, because I wanted him and me to be together. - Huck Finn.

St. Bernadette Soubirous is an interesting one. However I'm reading there is a layer of wax over her.

Well, that pretty much explains it.

Well it explains how perfect she looks but it doesn't explain how well the body is preserved. There are other incorrupt bodies of the Saints too.

Actually,
the face and hands that look so real in the photo are made out of wax. The
wax was added because the face was "emaciated" when the body was first exhumed (Nickell
1993: 92).

Yeah I just read that. I would say the church should be ashamed but that would be pointless. Still an interesting read!

RE: Incorrupt Bodies of the Saints?
When I was in italy they had stopped showing the bodies in the crypts I went to. once you open the glass casket it's done for. They did have a wood carved resemblance for St. Francis still pretty morbid actually, though not as disgusting as the 3D holograms.

I say the real wonder of the whole bodies of the saints thing is how amazed catholics are at looking at corpses. They make such a big deal but their religion says the body is just a shell. They shouldn't care much at all about the bodies.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.
