Pope appears to faithful in bonfire. Right!

The Daily Mail in the England is basically the newspaper by morons, about morons and for morons. It is a cheap tabloid gossipy publication that is only taken seriously by those who can’t read. And now it is reporting that Pope John Paul II is rising from the dead and waving to people and they have proof. And according to them the Vatican agrees!

The Daily Mail says that photos were taken of a bonfire and that witnesses claimed it was the Pope himself in the flames. Or to be more precise the witnesses claimed the flames appeared to be the Pope. And the Mail published the photo in question which we reproduce here. Actually none of the witnesses appeared to noticed the Pope at the time though now some claim that he does indeed appear in the photo.

Father Jarek Cielecki, a priest and thus one given to delusional thinking by profession, says that “You can see the image of a person in the flames and I think it is the servant of God, Pope John Paul II.” This sort of bogus hocus-pocus will no doubt be used to proclaim the Pope a saint by the current Pope and former Hitler Youth member.

What you have is flames in a shape. But if you compare that shape to this one you can see that the shape is similar. It is much the way that you can see animal shapes in clouds. The mind looks for patters which are familiar, a useful tool in science but damn pesky when people apply it where there is no legitimate reason to do so. Just as the mind finds real patters that do exist it can finds patters that don’t actually exist -- conspiracy theory is built on that premise.

Not to be outdone the more reputable London Times noted that the alleged miracle is even more miraculous than first thought. They noted the presence of Paul McCartney, Elvis Presley and Jimmy Connors as well and have dubbed this “Wonder of wonders, miracles of miracles.” And the photos offer the same proof for the Papal claims. Now in my eyes the Elvis match is the best but I know it can’t be true since Elvis is alive and well and flipping burgers in a roadside cafe in rural Michigan. But, he did know about the 9/11 attack in advance and worked with the International Bankers and Jews to plot it as part of the drive to build the NAFTA superhighway for the North American Union.

Contest: I encourage readers to post links to any other photos which indicate who else has joined the Pope in a little fire walking. Just post links to said photos in the comments section.

Perhaps it's Robert Hayes or John Travolta.
