Well yes.But another thing that caught my attention in this case was the alleged witnessing by children.
A child may lie, two children may lie, even three may, even more: fantasy is a VERY important factor for their growth. The story starts to get
complicated when you have MORE children telling you the same story, with matching decriptions, and so on. The Zimbabwe's example is the first that
came to mind, (by the way, if someone has the explanation for that case pleae post it here: a prosaic, serious, scientific explanation) but i always
prefer to give to every case an identity: if a case is too much linked to another one, and case #1 is found to be an hoax, then even case # 2 has not
many chances to survive, despite its reliability, despite its proofs. Children don't have more reasons than adults have to lie, or better: adults lie
for many reasons: money, power, PRIDE, etc, they stand on their positions. And why in the world some children whatsoever would do the same?
