If you haven’t yet seen the semi-viral YouTube video (currently at about 3.2 million views) showing a statue of Jesus open its eyes coincidentally at the exact moment a visitor zooms in with his cell phone camera, it’s below. AND IT’S INCREDIBLE! (Meaning it lacks all credibility of course.)
So first off, how lucky that person must have been to be in the right place at the right time to have such a miracle happen while he was taking a horribly shaky video of the statue in Mexico. Secondly, why? How does it even make sense that if a god existed, it would choose such a stupid method of proving its existence? Why not just show up in a public place and declare itself real? Oh, I know why. (It doesn’t exist.)
Anyway, despite the initial knee-jerk reaction by the faithful to declare this a miracle, several people have come forward with evidence debunking the hoax, and it has been forever logged at Snopes to live in infamy, along with every other miracle in modern times.
Here’s one of the better explanations with frame by frame comparisons.
