After my wife passed away in her bed last month I noticed a very slight circular discoloration, about 8 inches in diameter, on the ceiling directly above her bed. I painted this ceiling only last year and there was no markings on it. I'm not kidding or trying to be a smart ass. Others have seen it. It is hard to see. The illumination in the room has to be just right. There was nothing on the ceiling and I have no explanation for it.

Does God still do miracles? Unquestionably! And remember, the miracles in Scripture are not typically in rapid-fire succession, as they are spread over long sequences of time. And in NT days, NEW Scripture was being broken, and so, just like with the Prophets, God used the miraculous to show that it was by HIS authority that these men taught and wrote what they did. It wasn't for magic tricks. And it was also to create and build faith. Funny thing, though - whenever God did miracles in Scripture, there tended to be NO doubt that they were God caused. They weren't like the vague images of Jesus people claim to see in their toast, in tree stumps, or supposed photos of angels. No - they were made to be clearly known that A) they were miracles and B) that they were from the Lord. So, I would say, unless one has powerful reasons to believe a stain on the ceiling is a miracle of God, then at best, it's pure speculation and likely not the case. God's miracles are obvious, because God wants them and their Cause (Himself) to be unmistakable!

Might want to get some Kilz - great for preventing such!

Can anyone confirm if this is old news, or has been debunked/verified.

The Shroud’s Oscillating Man

...

In short, the documentary, based on the work of scientists in Sicily, claims to have made new discoveries about the Shroud based on “photogrammetry” — the science of making distance measurements of surfaces depicted on photographs. Using this technique, and high-resolution imagery, the scientists say they’ve found a number of objects on the body of the man in the Shroud — including, remarkably, tefillin, small leather boxes containing Scripture passages that observant Orthodox Jews wear strapped to their left arm and to their heads while praying.

Even more interesting, the scientists claim that their study has shown that the image on the Shroud is not static, but actually depicts a slight oscillation. It is, they say, like stroboscopic photograph, showing slight movement of the figure as intense bursts of energy emanate from his body. Here’s an example of a modern professionally taken stroboscopic photograph:
