    sounds about agreeable, though you could have expanded your answer.

    I've personally witnessed a weeping icon of the Virgin Mary and other members of my family have. The media often reports on miracles that happen in quite afew religions. I've read reports on Islam, Hinduism and Christianity. We had the famous Hindu Milk miracle that occurred years ago. It started off after an Indian in India had a dream being visited by a Hindu God teln in India had a dream being visited by a Hindu God telling him to give him milk to drink (something like that I can't remember the full story) the next day this guy took milk to the temple and attempted to feed it to an Icon which then started to absorb the milk. News of what happened got out and before you know it was an international phenomenon happening all over the world and media chasing around watching it in dme. Afew scientists looked into it at the time and there has still been no full rational explanation as how it happened.

    I was born a Christian (Greek Orthodox) and still a practising one. But I'm intriged with the Baha'i faith.

    It is my understanding that weeping statues have been made for centuries and are still made today, however many of the weeps identified have been found to be hoaxes that were perpetrated (when the substance was studied). I remember watching a show on the debate between the scientists, the faithful and the skeptics.

    Milk-drinking gods just plain science

    Nooooo this happened in our house on about 3 occasions we even moved it into another room and it happened again the window seal was soaked in some kind of oil and you could see it dripping from the eyes. The Icon was a mass produced one made out of MDF. I read of another case of a weeping icon on the internet and it was off a paranormal investigators site and he decribed exactly the same only he seen a weeping icon in a church in Canada and he dismissed it as a hoax which actually left me quite annoyed with his ignorance. As for the Hindu milk miracle the scientific theory makes no sense to me because the icons would only absorb milk on certain days and it mysteriously stopped happening altogether after a certain day and Hindus were reporting this all over the world, they were drinking spoons full.

    Jonathan Ross wife I forgot her name she’s of Jewish decent made an amazing documentary on different Paranormal activities, she goes to investigate peoples claims of mysterious things taking place quite objectively. Her point of view favours they actually happen as she investigates.
