Virgin Mary chalk drawing reappears 13 yrs on

Posted on Wednesday, 14 October, 2020 | Comment icon 99 comments

Until now, nobody had seen the drawing since 2007. Image Credit: Twitter / @palomofelixtv
A chalk drawing of the Virgin Mary has mysteriously reappeared 13 years after it had faded away.
The drawing, which had been created in an outdoor parking lot in the city of Monterrey, Mexico during festival celebrations in 2007, had originally only lasted around three weeks before the chalk had faded to the point where it was no longer visible and it was ultimately forgotten about.

Remarkably however, members of the public began to notice recently that the image had reappeared some 13 years after its original creation and nobody has been able to explain how, especially given its exposure to the elements and the fact that cars have constantly been driving over it all that time.

Photographs of the artwork have since attracted a lot of attention on social media and crowds of people have been flocking to the parking lot to view it for themselves.
Some have attributed the phenomenon to divine intervention and have left candles and flowers.

Felix Palomo, who is the director of Culture of the municipality of Guadalupe, has posted images of the spectacle on Twitter in the hope of finding answers.

"Whether you believe in miracles or not, the question is how did this image reappear 13 years after its creation ?" he wrote.

So far however, no conclusive explanation for the phenomenon has been forthcoming.

Ha, you've said here (because you consider yourself always on-topic) that you made a 'mistake', and you admitted during the whale tale that you were wrong.  So what are you complaining about?  Yes, your mistake is actual evidence, against you.  But your credibility has taken a much bigger hit since we all can see how your mistake has been spun and embellished by you over the last year.  It's evidence that other tales of yours may be distorted by the same process over time, tales that all on their own just based on their content seem 'distorted' to begin with.  You keep transferring opposing ev...

Im complaining because, with no evidence and no prior discussion, Sherapy has reopened the whole debate. She NOW  says she doesn't trust tha t Habitat actually did get the confirmation he posted, and now she is again saying she thinks the whole story was untrue. Unfortunately (mostly with me but also with some other posters) Sherapy has a long history of doing this sort of thing  eg simply posting tha t we said something we did not or hold views we never expressed Here.  when she could  have presented her argument at the time and had Habitat provide  confirm his source,  she suddenly says she ...

Any experience by one person becomes  a story or anecdote when shared with another person who did not actually share tha t experience My own position is not to believe a story but neither to disbelieve it  i would allow many things to influence how much i accepted if the event was a physical reality,  or something else  However with one's own experiences, unless one has some problem ,a person should always be able to tell what is happening outside his head from  what is happening inside it  I know some people cant tell the difference but I have never experienced this outside of times when i wa...

I am saying Habitat was asked for his evidence by me and a few others, he never produced any. I am saying literally, habitat isn’t a credible resource/source.without the evidence.

Yea, and on Saturday you said, "i got one detail wrong in retelling the story after that time".  So either that statement was a mistake itself, or you just made another mistake by saying you didn't admit to any mistake.  I'm done, this level you're at is really too basic for me, discussing things with you is acquiring a yucky 'punching down' quality that's no fun.

Indeed, one has to have boundaries with this poster. God knows I have had too. Lol

He gave the  name of the  organisation he rang. You could have checked yourself. If you  choose to disbelieve that is your error,  and is due to your bias.    Plus you never once questioned it when he was here to respond.  Lets say it was YOU who rang up  and verified the story. Are you  saying no one  should believe you?  As i said originally, there is no remaining physical evidence for this event, which I can locate,  so none is available to be presented.   None the less it happened. Many locals remember it and the tuna fishermen's association confirmed it, from the memory of some of the old... [More]

Ive explained this. You are so fixed on proving me wrong tha t you cant see the issue clearly. I'm done too. I'm tired of arguing with people who are either too stupid or too willfully biased to just accept simple facts.   These are the simple facts  A baby whale got into a tuna pen  It got out again, either under its own steam or with some help from  divers (the facts are no longer known or clear and all rely on memory of individuals )I saw it swim clear over the pontoon The tuna fishermen's  rep said it was helped free, and i don't argue with that as a possibility although the y do have an a...

See my post to LG. It applies even more strongly to you  You have misrepresented and lied about my posts for over a decade.  I am still not clear if this is a flaw  with your thinking and comprehension, (ie you honestly can't understand the points i am making, and  hence  often rephrase/ repost them  as the opposite to what i posted)  or something less honest.
