    Perhaps, in the hearts/minds of the faithful, this is a positive sign and brings forth beneficial qualities for themselves and others.

    Friends who have visited Medagorje (? sp) and other sites holy to the Mother of God report experiences that change their lives.

    And maybe it has to do with the purity of your faith and perception.

    LOL!!! Well if this is true, then shouldn't it perhaps cause you to believe?

    IMO, atheism is a belief system based on rational thought. It is a belief system based on reason.

    It would have to be proved beyond anecdotal evidence.

    Atheists please correct me if I misunderstand your view.

    so.. anyone is just free to walk up to the statue and put drips of red food coloring on there... and i'm supposed to believe that it cries blood....? puleeeeeeze......

    it's so cool how catholicism and the old paganism are still so similar, though- what with the blood, the idol-worship, the female goddess figure, etc.... and even as a skeptic, i can still appreciate those beautiful old churches...!

    Blood has Buddhist significance too. Life itself, caused by desire (the desire to be born, to come into being, also the essence nature)

    I don't know enough about this yet to say whether I think it is a miracle or a hoax. But I do believe that there have been many miracles similar to this in the past.

    That implies believers aren't using rational thought or reason, which isn't true, despite faith being a part of it. Atheism requires it's own faith in certain things. And I, obviously, find the "rationale" and "reason" to be faulty. But, that's another debate, lol.

    I'm sure they can run tests to see what the red liquid is made of. Of course, even if it isn't blood, it doesn't mean it wasn't caused by a miracle. But I hope they test it, as I'm awfully curious.
