Benny Hinn eXtreme!!

Ok so this really has nothing to do with science, although I could write a length diatribe on the mental state of the fervently religious, the power of persuasion, and of course the con that goes into all of this evangelical faith healing but mostly I just wanted to link to this video because it is hilarious. Benny Hinn faith healing + appropriate rock music = priceless.

I think your video was removed from YouTube, but I have what was likely the same one:

BTW, thanks for the comment at PT. I understand that structural space is much smaller than sequence space, but we both know there is a tiny regime wherein key sequences make a massive change in structure.

That is quite true, although of course those sorts of mutations generally end up being subject to purifying selection, even if it occurs after gene duplication (certain structural abnormalities can lead to protein-protein aggregation as we see in certain human diseases). But it is true, sequence alterations generally do not result in large scale structural changes but some of them can.
