Just like we can't know the sun will come up tomorrow morning. But if you're a betting man, I'll give you 100 to 1 odds.

No, that's not a good analogy. We have zero information about how the Apostles received Holy Communion but lots of precedent for the sun coming up in the morning.

We have information the Apostles were eating out of the dish, taking food by hand. We have information that is the normal procedure. We have ZERO information that Jesus changed the procedure.

If we say we don't know how they took the bread, then we can just as easily posit they took it with their toes.

Yes, we have information that they were eating before they received Holy Communion.

Normal procedure for what? What Our Lord did was without precedent, so there wasn't a "normal procedure" for it -- there was no "procedure" at all!

Yes, that is why we have a constant tradition of the faithful taking Holy Communion in their toes.

And where do we have ANY information that it was done that way when the sacrament of the Eucharist was initiated?

We don't have any information about it at all, which is why we can't be certain that the Apostles received Our Lord's Body and Blood in their hands.

And the lack of evidence about a conspiracy to kill Kennedy just proves how good the conspiracy was.

This is silly - I could just as well assert that the Apostles received by mouth and challenge you to prove they did not.
