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.
