    And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts, And I looked and behold: a pale horse. And his name, that sat on him, was Death. And Hell followed with him.

    Pics reminded me of a Johnny Cash song

    Miracle? Nah, all it means is that there’s some shit even God wont touch.

    I love how people of science are so naive that they think God was invented in the bible. Have you not studied history? Do you not realize that people have believed in a higher power since the dawning of mankind, long before the Bible was written. There is not one culture on this earth that does not believe in some kind of higher power. The Christian version of God came about from the Bible, but not the believe in God(s). I am not a Christian, nor do I belong to any organized religion because I am smart enough to know that most, if not all, organized religions were created to strike fear in people and gain control over them, and that most people who are religious are fucking hypocrits, but I am also not niave enough to say that just because the Bible is more than likely 100% for the most part that that means that there isn’t the possibility of there being some kind of higher power out there. People of science will use their excuse that science is based on facts, so that means that God is not real. Well no where have I ever heard that what God does cannot be explained, and no matter how much science is able to explain, it will never (yes geeks, NEVER) be able to explain everything 100%. This universe is far too vast to think that there isn’t even the slightest possibility that there is something else out there. No, this here was not a miracle, and yes, there is much pain and tragedy in this world. But nearly everything that is wrong in this world is caused by humans and their stupidity. All bad that happens in this world can be fixed by humans, so why should God, if he exists, be expected to right our wrongs? Humans got themselves into this mess, and they are perfectly capable of getting out of it, but they do not. In a way, it is both the believers and the non-believers faults, for the believers don’t do anything because they think that God will save them, and the non-believers don’t do anything because they don’t give a shit. If we would pull our heads out of our asses and stop arguing over who is wrong or right and see that even if God does exist that it is our job to fix what we have made go wrong, this world would get better. But unfortunately, that will more than likely not happen.

    has anyone not noticed that in the final picture it looks as though the cross is actually sittin on a large rock or group or rocks which would not burn in a fire, if theres no surrounding fire how can the cross burn… it is very hard to see depth in photographs. those trees could be 30 metres infront of the cross and just look like it is ingulfed.

    Wow, a bunch of drama. I’m female, and I wasn’t even involved. That’s just…hilarious.

  • ken

    God wants to do a miracle and THATS what he chooses to do? Personally, I would have chosen to save the horse or the house instead of the cross, but hey, I guess that’s why I’m not God!

    I vote for shopped.

  • Bex

    Never mind the cross, explain how/why that poor horse looks so damn ill!

  • Viktor

    I was there when that cross was placed and it is made of stainless steel.

    Notice there is nothing on the ground around it to catch fire…it's on a dirt/rock outcropping, so obviously no flames are going damage it, and it's likely not even made of flammable material anyways.
