God's truth unfolds continuously as revelations and miracles, such as allowing the blind to see again; defeating such age old horroras as polio, leprosy, and plague; blessing mankind with photographs of mars and the dark side of the moon--all to those men and women whose minds are open, who have the wisdom and courage to receive His truth wherever it presents itself and unattached to preconceived notions and conclusions.

Meanwhile, the Muslim world is stuck in the 7th century, its mind closed to God's continuous revelation, His never ceasing miracles, His eternal grace, His unlimited love for mankind, and His ceaseless creation.

On the other hand, there is a prophecy known among Orthodox Christians, that in the days of the Antichrist all of Christ's miracles will be reproduced, save that the dead will not be raised. The prophecy does not say the Antichrist will reproduced Christ's miracles, only that they will be reproduced.

I am happy for the blind who will see, but this is the first step in direct digital-brain interfaces (the retina is neurophysiologically part of the brain, and includes not just light sensing cells, but cells that start the image-processing involved in discerning shapes), and after one gets over the 'ooo! cool!' reaction to being able to access the internet through a direct retinal feed, a little more imagination and a little sober thought shows that this will not be a good thing. (If imagination of the consequences fails, I suggest viewing the entire corpus of Ghost in the Shell anime. It just gives a fairly dark vision of a democratic society with pervasive digital-brain interfaces. Consider then a non-democratic society.)
