Strange stuff.. evidently, various objects in a small Italian town are just bursting into flames for no apparent reason. Scientists are baffled.
Here’s a couple gems from the article:
“The blazes, originally blamed on the devil, have not hurt anyone.”
That’s right, instead of just leaping to some hair-brained conclusion like an electrical problem or geomagnetic phenomenon of some sort, these savvy townsfolk used Occam’s razor and investigated simpler explanations first, like mischievous intervention by the Prince of Darkness. What’s even cooler is that they did some field tests (?) and were able to rule him out! We should be seeing their findings in Nature any day now. “When our research team introduced 1 part robin’s egg to 4 parts virgin goat’s blood, mixture maintained red color and viscous consistency, ruling out presence of Hell’s minions.”
“â€œIâ€™ve seen things like this before,â€ he [Gabriele Amorth, exorcist!] told the daily Il Messaggero. â€œDemons occupy a house and appear in electrical goods.â€
Yes, burnt toast has a simple and logical explanation at the Amorth home – demonic possession. “This milk has expired! Demons, get thee out of my crisper! The Power of Christ Compels You!”
Anyway, interesting read.
