Come on..I want to see a solid evidence that its virgin mary..anyone?
To all the people who think it is not PROVE IT!!!
I want to see solid evidence it is not... Anyone??...
I can't believe I actualy have to do this... but anyway...
Here is one of the pictures that I took.
And here is me using paint to show those that can't see the overall shape which shows it is a woman.
That plus the fact that we can even see a halo around her head, her right foot is slightly higher than her left foot as if hovering or flying, and her right leg seems to be bent slightly at the knee.
Let's see, how many women are known for having a halo, having a cape, wearing white and blue/purple, plus is able to hover or fly? Not even wonder woman

Okay to show how absolutely absurd this is, this is my take on what it is. Here is obvious proof that the image in the sun is actually a flying banana.
So here is the original photo without showing you the proper outlining of said banana plane.
Here is the enhanced version for those who can't see the overall shape of the flying banana.
Now see everyone, look how easy that was to turn a blob into whatever I wanted it to be. Please just take a step back and think about things. I can understand that waiting on the return of the messiah is burnt into your hopes and beliefs, but you HAVE GOT TO BE a little bit more selective next time.

To all of those of you who think this is either a hoax or some elaborate experiment in mass hysteria via something like Project Blue Beam I point out the following things:
1) Have you ever pointed a camera at the sun and taken a pic? Most often when it is directly pointed at the sun you will get those beam looking effects from the sun. Unfortunately as good as camera lenses are, they do not work the same way a human eye does, so they cannot be relied on 100% of the time to pick up what we see.
2) Why would those behind a project like Blue Beam (assuming it exists in the first place) choose Africa to show a Christian figure who I might add is not entirely accepted by christianity outside of the catholic church.
3) This was reported on a local news station there. I tried to download the clip for my collection of Marian associated phenomena but the video was pulled off YouTube as I was downloading it.....
Fear not though, I have part of the clip (in French) and I have re-uploaded it in YouTube.
4) For those of you who want to know about the people who saw it, I just found a clip. Main reason no-one is finding and posting it is that everything is in French, that being the national language of the Ivory Coast.
My French is not amazing, so can someone who speaks French please confirm this is related to the supposed visions in question. I hear the words Virgin Mary and vision so I am assuming it is related. The very last frame shows the name of what I presume the place it happened - D'Agboville Cathedral of Saint Jean Marie Vianney.
Partial News Report
Some testimonies from a child who saw it and the local priest
Another Video clip of the apparition - once again pretty crappy but you can tell from the sound of the people's voices that they genuinely believe what they are seeing
I am not asking anyone to believe and I am not pushing an agenda here, but I will say that to the people of the Ivory Coast this seems to have been a very genuine thing.

i think i have an answer for this question you asked. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------> 2) Why would those behind a project like Blue Beam (assuming it exists in the first place) choose Africa to show a Christian figure who I might add is not entirely accepted by christianity outside of the catholic church.
WEEELL the answer IS this. THEY (BlueBeam) WOULD choose AFRICA B-E-C-A-U-S-E it WOULD be a SMART idea TO test 3D projections BASED on a SIGNIFICANTLY important CATHOLIC figure upon a culture who is very DIVERSE in THEIR religion preference. WHY test it somewhere where CATHOLICISM is the dominant religion and it could possibly have the POTENTIAL to go wrong in front of many spectators. These are EVIL minds we are dealing with they want to get it down to the bone before the FINAL SHOW. I honestly DO see SOMETHING there and i DONT believe it was a "MIRACLE" performed by GOD for the fact that if this really is virgin mary and the MOTHER of god HERSELF who we are seeing in THIS video i dont think god HIMSELF would manifest HIS own MOTHER on a full flesh body to about 50 people. AND even though other branches of christianity DONT believe MARY being a VIRGIN shes STILL remains a HOLY figure in all of christianity based religions. Main point trying to GET across : BLUE BEAM PROJECT BABEEEH. ITS GONNA BE A HELL OF A SHOW SO SIT BACK AND ENJOY CUZ THATS ALL IT IS, NOTHING BUT HARMLESS 3D PROJECTIONS, THE ONLY ONES THAT WILL BE CAUSING ALL THE HARM WILL BE US WHEN WE ALL BEGIN WW3 OVER WHOS GOD IT WAS THAT APPEARED IN THE SKY. BUT LETS BE STRONG AND KEEP UNITED CUZ ITS MORE OF US THAN IT IS OF THEM SO VIVA LA RESISTAAAHNCE.
LOVE AND LIGHT TO ALL OF YOU
