durga mother goddessIn the small village of Diuri in Bahar India, thousands of devoted followers believe they are witnessing the reincarnation of Durga, the sexy multi-armed Hindu mother goddess. Worshippers are showing up in droves to bring fruits and lay flowers by the goddess. A true miracle if you ask me.

But if you ask Amit Jain, a senior Bihar police officer, he has a different take on the situation. He has spoken with experts and claim that this child is not a goddess, but a baby that suffers with from a congenital defect. The extra limbs that give the infant the appearance of Durga are actually tumors.

Now I report this story because it raises a good point. How many supposed miracles in religious history are actually misperceptions by ignorant people. People have claimed to see Jesus rise from the dead, but did they really? People claimed that Jesus fed 5,000 people with a few loafs of bread and some fish, but is that what they really saw?

The list goes on and on, so I invite you to share your thoughts on this matter.
