Its a miracle! Not!
« on: August 03, 2006, 11:09:13 am »
(Wadowice, Poland)

Pilgrims who queued to drink from a miracle fountain flowing from a statue of the late pope John Paul II were disappointed to hear it is just a council-installed water pipe. Locals in the pope's birthplace of Wadowice, near Krakow, thought a miracle had happened when water started to run from the base of his statue.

Word spread throughout Poland and pilgrims from around the country visited to fill bottles with the "holy" water.

However, Mayor Eva Filipiak dashed their illusions by admitting a water pipe had been installed under the statue.

"We didn't mean anything by it, it was just supposed to make the statue look prettier," she said.

That's what happens when you jump to the immediate answer that suits your beliefs best, rather than looking for the most likely answer.
