I am a friend of a member related to the family. I have visited the house on a few occassions from when the oil started, which was on the night of Mike's 40 day mass (i believe the 40 day mass is an Orthodox tradition). It started as one drop in Mike's room on the wall and has been weeping throughout the house since. After visting the house and speaking to the mother, father & other relatives having the story explained to me, I beleive in what is happening., I guess this has also to do with my faith. They are not taking donations, nor do they seek '15mins of fame'. They strongly believe this is a sign from God for the world to see, a sign for ppl to believe in God, have faith. They have opened their home to complete strangers to see and hear their story. Tests done by a current affair or today tonight's (not sure which one) scientists couldnt prove what it is or where it came from. Apparently the scientist checked the walls, roofs, below the house etc for any foul play with no findings.
I read somewhere, that Mike had no licence - he had a licence, he was going home from his cousins place and it was a wet road, went over a bridge, over the speed limit, lost control and hit into a pole straight into the drivers side door, medics tried to revive him for over an hour he died in hospital - this all happened literally around the corner from his home.
I dont see what their motive could be but simply to bring ppl closer to God. I am not a holy person i.e. i dont go to church every sunday nor do I preach... but this is something special and i thought it be worth having my say
