What's with that?? All these visions, and such.
Don't really know or have an opinion. One thing that does fascinate me though is the Fatima visitations. In particular, the October 13, 1917 occurrence that was witnessed and experienced by 70,000 people at once. Photographs of the event are still kicking around. Here's one of the people:



"70,000 people came to see the phenomenon. The miracle occured with the sun. All could stare perfectly at the sun without blinking, or even hurting heir eyes. While all were watching the sun, it rotated, got large and small, got close to the people, and got far away from them. The sun " danced ". Every single person who was there testified to seeing the sun dance, even non- believers who immediately dropped onto their knees and begged for forgiveness."

Paranormal researchers have speculated for years that it may have been a UFO they were witnessing. I don't buy it. The Sun is unmistakable, if it were some flying vehicle then they would have said so instead of the Sun. Others, more scientifically inclined, have put forth the theory that they experienced a mass hallucination brought on by a desire to believe. That doesn't hold water either as many witnesses were skeptics who decided to check it out for themselves. I see no fault in classifying it as a miracle in the strict sense of the word. Perhaps the most well documented miracle that has ever occurred.
