Can we use this for a paternity test?

I love miracle stories. I really do.
The newest one involves a communion wafer in a Catholic church in Poland. Seems this wafer fell into some water and was transmogrified into heart tissue. At least according to one Polish scientist. No word on what tests she used to determine this.
Skeptics are claiming that the wafer is probably just coated with bacteria and are asking to test it. They even want to do genetic testing on the miraculous “tissue”. Think of it. If the wafer really did what Catholics claim it does–turn into the body of Jesus Christ–scientists might be able to sequence the DNA of God.
The odds look good:
The Catholic Church said already ruled out the possibility of a hoax, and local police have said that there is no evidence of fraud.
I can’t wait to see how this pans out.
