There are international standards of weights and measures, even for the passage of time.

The gold standard for a moral, eternally abiding life now sits and the right hand of his Father.  

Diametrically opposed is the man of Sin, our natural proclivity and the spirit working in our minds and members. We sin as naturally and freely as water cascading down a water fall.

Our mouths, swear, our minds envy, covet and indulge in vilest most despicable imaginings. 

We are bitter, abusive, hateful,  coldhearted, murders, whisperers, callous, without natural affection, haughty, high minded, quick to anger, insufferable lot. Deserving all of the natural catastrophes that beset us, including AIDS, tsunamis, hurricanes and tornadoes. As AIDS spreads rapidly around the earth it becomes evident that everybody is sleeping with everyone across the whole planet. A sure marker of the moral turpitude that besets the earth. 

But a standard was born. Eat his flesh, drink his blood and let him abode in your mind and members that you may abide forever.

OK wiki Zeitoun Copic Church Apparition in 1969 and add to all of the scientific research that found no sign of fraud.

checked the wiki.. no god there.

 

However interestingly enough there is a reference noted for this that im certain you failed to read.

 

Mass Hysteria Events

 

Here is the relevant part that hopefully you are able to comprehend.

 

It appears that the Marian observers were predisposed by religious background and social expectation to interpreting the light displays as related to the Virgin Mary.

Forget the Mary nonsense, look at the luminous objects in the sky. compared to doves. Also look at the fact that it occurred in the same place for three years. scientist had 3 years of direct observation to uncover a fraud. 

I am not saying it is Mary. I say it is a spectacular display of the supernatural since it remains scientifically unexplained. Forget about putting a label on the occurence. 

Right on !
Michael, your dreary efforts to give credibility to absurdity are tedious. Go away & READ some science books.
OK wiki Zeitoun Copic Church Apparition in 1969 and add to all of the scientific research that found no sign of fraud. Zeitoun continues to be a scientific mystery. So science books have yielded nothing to date.
Some people can see a miracle in a card trick performed by an inept 12 year old boy.
I actually believe it is trick perpetrated by dark powers to dupe Muslims and Christians in thinking that it is Mary. The spirit of antiChrist has been prophesied to work wonders to deceive people. "...and shall show great signs and wonders in so much as it were possible, the very elect would be decieved"(sic)

"Science found nothing, so it must be God"? Actually...

Cynthia Nelson and others [6] have put the Mary apparition in its context. The appearances came at a period of crisis in Egyptian history.

Sociologists Robert Bartholomew and Erich Goode offer the Zeitoun apparitions as a prominent case of mass delusion:

“It appears that the Marian observers were predisposed by religious background and social expectation to interpreting the light displays as related to the Virgin Mary.”[7"

Science doesn't always find the "answer" right away. Sometimes it's just beyond our level of technology at that time. This time though, mass hysteria seems pretty friccan likely. Flashing lights = Mary eh? 

  Humans tend to see human shaped things too. This is a natural phenomena caused by humans needing to be able to read human faces, and thus being very tuned into faces/bodies. Like seeing  "face" in tree bark.

This has been discussed a million times over. Please, do some research before you come to argue.

Forget about the Mary nonsense, the salient question is what caused the phenomena. I think it is a trick perpetrated by the powers of darkness. 3 years in the same spot!

You do not have to be delusional or crazy to behold a bizarre event.

 

Most Atheist will write someone off as delusional or crazy. I think there is a more loving response like. "Maybe it's just scientifically unexplained right now, but no proof of the supernatural". That would be a happy meeting ground between Atheist and Believers. After all faith is based on seeing nothing. And any body that needs a god to materialize before them to believe lacks faith in the first place.

"Science doesn't always find the "answer" right away. Sometimes it's just beyond our level of technology at that time."

 

Read the whole post and you will see, that is exactly whay I wrote!

 

Humans are prone to weird and oft irrational behavior. That's just a fact. 

 

You write off people. "Most X do Y" is a bad sentence and always will be. 

 

I take lack of faith as a good thing. It's what's kept science & philosophy moving. Without those we'd both be too busy working fields, producing children and dying at 35 to be here debating this in the first place.
