I completely understand, and actually haven't made my mind up about any of it (Ueshiba's abilities). Fact is, I want it to be true. I have personally seen/done some things that the majority of folks wouldn't believe even with video proof and signed affidavits by nuns. I do believe in the mystery. I look around corners, expecting the "impossible" manifest.
When it comes right down to it, I just make statements about historical and religous figures engaging in adolescent behavior to be inflammatory.
I'd pay whatever it cost to see those match-ups though...
