Virgin of Guadalupe Image Defies Explanation, Scientists Tells Catholics at Conference

 

It's a miracle!

Or not.

According to one scientist, the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe that supposedly appeared on a peasant's cloak more than 200 years ago defies rational explanation.

This load of hokum was foisted on a crowd of believers at the First International Marian Congress held over the weekend in Phoenix. Adolfo Orozco told folks that two miracles are associated with the cloth, both having to do with its supposed resistance to decay.

 

Another so-called scientist claims that images of some of the 18th-century observers of the cloth show up in the eyes of the Virgin Mary. Jesus, that's dumb.

As you can tell, we're pretty skeptical about these things. We don't believe in chemtrails, either.
