It sounds stupid from a scholarly level- as even Catholics know that if you rip or shred the wafer, as one does with their teeth when they eat it, it is wafer through and through. Trying to prove something by driving a nail thru it proves only that the researcher doesn't know what they are doing.

Talk about religious bashing-looks like it may be the whole point of this upcoming film by Bill Maher:

Subject: [asa] The Science = Atheism Meme

It looks like this meme has been significantly propped up this summer. How so? Well, if you'd like to see a modern example of iconoclasm, an example where someone purposely desecrates something Catholics hold sacred to elicit emotional reactions, where's the best place to look? Why, it's the #1 "Science Blog,," read by many scientists and featured in several science journals. There you can find a science professor drive a nail through a deceptively obtained Eucharist wafer with much back-slapping and guffawing from his "pro-science" fans.
