"In this century, from 1923 until 1975, the theologian Bernard Billets, has reported 232 separate apparitions of Our Lady in 32 countries. According to the new video, 'Marian Apparitions of the 20th Century', over 300 apparitions have been reported in this century. In 1995 the number has reached 700. Yet, as in Lourdes, most will prove to be an aping by demons, pious imaginations, or fraud. In Lourdes there were 50 other children who "saw the Virgin", but all were proved to be 'not from God' except one."
"Photographs of Mary Mother of God"
by Thomas Upshur, a New York freelance photographer
"Photographs of the Blessed Mother by Thomas Upshur"
"These photographs are not apparitions of the Blessed Mother.
They are photographs of a statue of Mary."
Just as a photographer DID produce the above illusions
So too can an illusionist - or "higher intelligence" produce the below images:

1: Alleged that "This picture was taken at Medjugorje by a priest who aimed his camera where the kids were looking, though he couldn't see anything there himself."
Protestant Medjugorje promoter, Wayne Weible made use of the "photo"
to promote one of his books on Medjugorje.
2. One of the alleged photos of The Blessed Virgin on the wall of the Seminole Finance Corp Bldg, Clearwater, USA, December 23, 1996.
3. An alleged appearance of The Mother of God at Cairo, Egypt.
4. Cloud spotting: See the Virgin Mary, holding a crucifix, several angels and a rosary?
[No? As for me, I can't see them, but I CAN see a dinosaur's head, and my wife says she can see a bear's head and a hippopotamus!]
Note: Those objects were actually traced in the clouds in an enlarged pic. by the Medjugorje USA operators.
But as of Mar. 28, 2001 this picture was deleted from the Medjugorje USA site.
