    I will try to do this as neutrally as possible. Eliminating bias. Opening Mind.

    So, what do you think about this?​


    I am mainly interested in the fact that the pages were not at all damaged; not even the highlighter marks were ruined. Is there any way for that effect to be produced naturally? ​

    Money-making scam, imo.

    That doesn't tell me very much, and it certainly doesn't explain the book's condition.

    Looks like somebody shouldn't be reading their bible when deep fat frying.

    The ink is water-soluble; most oils wouldn't affect it.

    "Bleeding" and "weeping" artifacts are not new to the world of hoaxery.

    Thanks. Would the same apply to the highlighter, though?

    Now the proof of that is required.

    Personally I would lean towards scam, illusions are getting very good.

    Yes, I was including highlighter ink. Most common highlighters use water-soluble ink. Permanent markers and highlighters have water-insoluble ink, but they are still not oil-soluble either. It usually takes something like acetate to dissolve the ink from permanent markers.

    I made it to 36 seconds and realized the world's oil crisis has been averted.

    Ya know what'd be better than Bibles leaking oil?
    Making specific predictions which are testable.
    But they gotta work with what they have.

    Scam.

    At minute 4:34 the producer asks a man "Why do you believe God has allowed oil to come from the Bible?"

    The man replied that they had it analyzed one year previously and the 'Chemist' couldn't determine what kind of oil it was.

    Then finally at minute 5:30 he says they went to a Sunday service and "...The LORD spoke, and he said 'Do you want to know why I sent you the oil?....three things' "

    1. Here is the verbal claim of 'The LORD' according to the video in summary:
    Man can only represent, but it claims the LORD can manifest....so when you think something is impossible you can look at this impossible miracle of oil being 'Manifested'. ​
    Its obviously baloney, because they don't even seem to know what manifesting means. They also don't seem to know that miracles aren't for proving the existence of anything and are to be distrusted. They are claiming the opposite and are in fact using this false miracle to convince these poor folks that they are hearing the voice of the LORD -- through someone. In the Bible that would be considered Divination. Now let me ask you this, since I know its not the LORD whom should I suppose that it is that these people have taken as a supernatural miracle maker?

    2. The video is advertising supported.

    I don't buy it. If it were religious oriented, all bibles admit oil. As for the pages I was trying to find on YouTube a closer picture of where the oil is coming from. I see it's wet and jugs but what about the studies and logistics or is it taken as is, a miracle?
