Anecdotal "evidence" of something that might have happened presented by a speaker with slides. Video of his presentation later uploaded to YouTube. Hmm.

I am minded that there used to be (heck, may still be, for all I know) much-publicised meetings at major venues in New York City, Chicago and the like, that were fairly well attended by interested parties who had come to see well-known speakers on an important subject.

UFO contact stuff, "Space Brothers", that sort of thing.

Immanuel Velikovsky explaining how the Bible revealed a cataclysmic rearrangement of the solar system in historical times.

Psychics. Healings.

I'd put this in the same category: not very likely to have occurred as purported; not necessarily true just because someone was willing to go on stage to talk about it.

That, however, is merely my personal opinion.

And even if some independent group wanted to verify it, the really miraculous part of it all coming from the host would be impossible to do.

Yes; when magicians turn things into rabbits, they generally use real rabbits. Magic!

As SatinsHobbit alludes to, this would be great for transplants. Sadly of course, it won't work for Jews, Buddists, Muslims, or athiests as they would reject Christ

An why are you the only one that knows at this host turning into heart tissue. I would think that if there were any credible evidence the scientific community would be jumping all over it and several news articles from reputable news organizations.

Maybe he's the only one with the courage to fight Big Donor?

PS. I can't believe it took me this long to point out that his body of evidence is wafer thin.

I totally misinterpreted the thread title; I expected it to be something along the lines of a host organism being used to artificially grow heart tissue. Compared to that, transubstantiation is a bit of an anti-climax.
