At long last, Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene have returned. Or at least that’s what one Australian couple wants you to think.
Cult watchers are keeping a close eye on the pair, actually named Alan John Miller and Mary Suzanne Luck, who under the title “Divine Truth” claim to be the second coming of the biblical figures.
“Just a little over 2000 years ago, we arrived on the Earth for the first time,” Miller says on his website. “Because of my personal desire and passion for God, as I grew, I recognized not only that I was the Messiah that was foretold by ancient prophets, but also that I was in a process designed by God that all humans could follow, if they so desired.”
A mother in China has given birth to conjoined twins who share a single body.
The babies were born by caesarean on Thursday at the Suining City Central Hospital in Sichuan. The twins weighed 9 pounds (4 kilograms) and measured 20 inches (51 centimetres), according to local press reports.
The parents, who are migrant farmers living outside of the southwestern city, did not learn of the abnormality until two days before the mother was due to give birth.
Two ultra sound scans in September and February failed to reveal the two heads because the technicians were viewing the single embryo in profile.
Doctors consider separating the babies, who have separate spines and esophaguses but share major organs, almost impossible.
