Now if in Ireland they had an occurance like in Zeoutin,Eygpt, where the Virgin Mary appeared walking around the dome of St.Mary's Coptic Church,that would be different.This happend back in the 1960s or 70s.It's been in Fate Magazine and other places.

if only 7% of the world had common sense, then it wouldn't be very 'common' now, would it? Touché! I like to think it's as common as an Argyle pink diamond

Why is it always Mary and not like Jesus? Or even Joseph? Not saying it's not true. I just wonder why it's only her?

Why do people go to worship a stupid tree stump When no evidence exists for a belief some will move on, but others stay behind and become desperate. When they get desperate enough, anything will do. Even a tree stump. They can't really be blamed. This religion helps them get through life.

So having an object shape liked a virgin Mary deserves to be worshiped??
