And the Water Was Turned into Wine

There is nothing trifling about hearing that miracles are happening here and there in these times of great upheaval. The signs of the end of the world are generally more readable at those times when the bell tolls (whether it rings true or not) for our humanity. And yet, it really is the case that water was turned into wine and flowed freely from all the taps of a small Italian settlement. Before falling to your knees in a state of grace, reading a few articles on the subject may potentially show you that miracles are often just the eldritch interpretation of a straightforward and  unedifying scientific reality.
