"I am God, I created the universe! But I can't turn water into wine if you guys don't believe me, come on, turn around and let me do it!"

 

 

 

Jesus: The miracle I'm most famous for is turning water into wine.
Stan: Can you do it again?
Jesus: Very well. I shall perform the miracle. Behold, here you can see ordinary water, clear, clean. Okay now turn around.
(Stan surprised)
Turn around.
(Stan turns around and Jesus replaces the jug of water on the table with a jug of wine)
It is now wine!
Stan: That's it? That's how you did that trick?
Jesus: Uh, well, yeah.
Stan: That trick sucks Jesus.
Jesus: Oh, I guess it worked a little better on people 2,000 years ago.

A lot of bogus in this list, starting with number one. Placebo is very well known, and placebo generally doesn't "heal" anything, it relives pain. a concept that's very well understood since the brain controls the whole pain level of the body.  There's a few other effects it can cause that in certain illnesses may be seen as "healing" where glands in the body excretes the same medicine they would otherwise be given.

 

The only unknown is how to trigger the pain relief and such consciously. Though it may not be as un-cracked as people like to think as well. look at people with extreme pain thresholds and highly trained military specialists who can tolerate extreme pain by ignoring it. 

 

number 2 has of course never been proven to actually exist in any way

 

number 3 is also fairly well understood and has to d with disconnects in the brain.

 

Deja vu is much the same thing. a brian hickup, a slight loss of connection between the brain halves.

The placebo effect can also make people perform better too I've read quite a few times
