Nepal Buddha Boy Burst Into Flame?

Ram Bamjan, dubbed the Nepal Buddha Boy, apparently spontaneously burst into flames and it was caught on video.

For the past nine months, the 15-year-old has sat, meditating at the base of a peepal tree in Nepal's Bara District, without food, water, sleep or the need to use the toilet. If that was not remarkable enough, on January 19, he spontaneously combusted, burning off the clothes he has worn for nine months but leaving no scars. Lest there be doubters, his followers caught that combustion on video and plan to present the footage, seen by The Age, at a news conference in Kathmandu, soon.

Why haven't we seen this footage? And why isn't this settled once and for all?

I think later after some years, people probably will say its made by CGI. The point is people are so suspicious because we are surrounded by so many lies, hoax, and manipulation. It's normal and safe to doubt, to protect ourself. But also it's our lost not to trust people.

This boy obviously is special. To say he is divine is a possibility but at the same time, not likely. A way to find out would be to bring him to a lab and disect him. That is obviously not a very polite thing to do. It does not matter if he is divine or not though. He has already done good by stimulating the economy in Nepal, even if only a little bit; the people in Nepal could definitely use it. Countra, to be skeptic does not mean you are not listening. It means that you need evidence. The human brain and nervous system is a wonderful thing. Their capbilities are really quite extraordinary when looking at what it takes to operate a normal body. It is not surprising that this boy is capable of this long meditation. As for a god, you might want to look toward the sun and stars for your god. The stars are capable of producing all the elements on earth up to Iron. Supernovas create the other elements and can hasten more star growth in Nebulas. Despite all that, divinity is another possibility.
