    CAIRO: Despite eye-witness accounts and numerous videos flooding the internet, some believe the apparition of the Virgin Mary in Warraq last week was merely a hoax meant to strengthen people’s religious convictions.
    Thousands of Christians as well as Muslims lined up for more than three hours last week to catch a glimpse of the Virgin Mary believed to have made an appearance above the Virgin Mary Orthodox Church in Warraq district in Giza.
    People were pouring onto the streets and standing on rooftops in Warraq as soon as news broke out that a glowing silhouette of a woman wearing a crown was hovering above the church........................................................
    We informed Pope Shenouda, who is in America right now,” he said.
    The apparition is an event in which the Virgin Mary is believed to have supernaturally appeared to one or more people. They are often given names based on the town in which they were reported, the documented cases allegedly happened around the world over hundreds of times.

    This is hilarious!!
    It's amazing that some Christians who seemed to be educated reported things like; they saw huge pigeon made of cloud flying near the church and other group said that they saw light coming above the church...etc. Thousands of people gathered trying to convince themselves of truthfulness of such superstitious stories!! :shrug:

    It's remarkable what silliness people will believe. I've heard of people who believe God sent an angel to reveal his perfect word to an Arabian merchant.
