Two miraculous signs have appeared from two different religions in two separate places?Pittsburgh and Palestine. In the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Pennsylvania, a figure of Jesus has begun oozing a colorless, odorless oil. In Palestine, the name of “Allah” has appeared on the side of a sheep.
In The Morning Call, 0,3556131.story?coll=all-newslocal-hed,Dan Sheehan quotes Maria Varvarelis, the wife of the pastor of St. Nicholas, as saying, ”What message is it trying to send us? Sometimes a little sign like this makes you nervous, because you don’t know what might happen. But we are excited about it.”
George Fillipakis, who created the figure, says it’s made from ordinary plywood, ”the kind you make cabinets from,” and the paints were blended from dry pigments and egg whites. The oil could be some kind of chemical or atmospheric reaction, ”but why does it happen from this one and not other ones [he’s made]?”
Chemistry professor Gregory Ferguson says he can analyze the oil, but ”It’s important to recognize that even if one did that, it doesn’t diminish the spiritual importance of what’s happening. Science and theology are not opposed to one another. They are complementary ways of viewing the world. They’re different, but not opposed.”
An ocean away, in Palestine, hundreds of people gathered to see a lamb that was born with “Allah” spelled out in Arabic on its coat. “This is clear evidence of God’s existence,” says the lamb’s owner Yahya Atrash. “It was born with the words ‘Allah’ on one side and ‘Mohammed’ on the other.”
