Walter Glod commented about Silvania Machado, a Brazilian woman who claims that gold dust pours out of her skin when she prays and it is a sign from God.

But I think we’re all looking for the miracle that can’t be reproduced. …And that miracle would not be a difficult illusion to do…In fact, it would be easy.” To read the Aug. 22 article by Sibella C.
