"Doubting Thomas" Never Doubted Because 
He Never Existed!!! 

Wikipedia tells us: 

Saint Thomas the Apostle, also called Doubting Thomas, or Didymus, was one of 
the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. He is perhaps best known for disbelieving Jesus' 
Resurrection when first told of it, then proclaiming "My Lord and my God" on 
seeing Jesus....He was perhaps the only Apostle who went outside the Roman 
Empire to preach the Gospel. He also crossed the largest area, which includes 
Persia, India and China....Andrea del Verrocchio's sculpture showing the 
incredulity of St. Thomas. In Thomas' best known appearance in the New 
Testament, John 20:24-29, he doubts the resurrection of Jesus and demands to 
touch Jesus' wounds before being convinced. Caravaggio's painting, The 
Incredulity of Saint Thomas (illustration above), depicts this scene. This story 
is the origin of the term Doubting Thomas. After seeing Jesus alive (the Bible 
never states whether Thomas actually touched Christ's wounds), Thomas professed 
his faith in Jesus, exclaiming "My Lord and my God!"; on this account he is also 
called Thomas the Believer. 

See this beautiful painting at:\ 

Based on what C.W. Leadbeater wrote about the Apostles, this scene in the New 
Testament never happened because Thomas never existed.....
