many of the saints bodies are incorrupt, defying so-call science....just another sign of God’s power to his people

God's people do not need signs of His power...We walk by faith, not by sight...

We have the witness of the Holy Spirit...

If you did happen to come across a preserved dead body, there'd be no way to tell if if was preserved by God, or Satan...

“God’s people do not need signs of His power...We walk by faith, not by sight...”

Is that why the thousands of “ecclesial groups” seem to be walking in so many different directions, I?

The veneration of relics is nearly as old as The Church itself, I. No one says you have to believe in the power of relics, though the overwhelming majority of Christians today do and always and everywhere have. I must say, however, that if I believed in the sort of God you folks do, One Whose apparently all consuming wrath at His creation could only be assuaged by the bloody torture death of His completely innocent Son, I’d probably leave off the scorn lest it turn out that I’m wrong and The Church right.

ME: first, if we have only the witness of the holy spirit, then there would be no need for the many signs Christ performed after his ressurection

secondly, it would make no sense for satan to be involved in incorruptible christian bodies, as these examples, DRAW PEOPLE CLOSER TO CHRIST...and i know of only one person in the last 2000 plus years that draws people to Him...
