“Bust of Nicholas II stream myrrh…”
Probably many Christians believe that the publication of the stone in your garden, but we now explain how it all began, peredam
The tragic incident happened during the interview unfamiliar “state Duma Deputy Natalia Polonskaya” TV channel in which she reported that in Simferopol there was a miracle: “Call officers from the Crimea, the Prosecutor’s office, taking care of a chapel. This morning the bust of Nicholas II zamirotochila. I took pictures, sent. But it is a miracle that can not explain neither the scientists, nobody. And it’s the 100th anniversary of the revolution. See how the Emperor helps us”.
In fact, since then, the phrase “Bust of Nicholas II streaming myrrh” became winged. So, from about March 3, on the occurrence of the bust was buzzing the whole Internet. The question is: what else can semioticity in Russia?
Offer 3 facts from the book by Alexander Nikonov “the opium of the people. Religion as global business project” about how the myrrh-streaming icon.
1. It turns out that a miracle happened and the icon still zamirotochila, it is enough to attach from the back side butter and make small holes at eye level.
2. This trick was disclosed by Peter I. After the king issued a decree to melt down Church bells for cannon, mystical circumstances in the Russian Empire began to cry icons. Peter was furious and ordered to cut one of the icons, and there were found pieces of butter.
3. It is worth noting that there was another way… Before writing an icon, took a Board and doused it with oil. When the Board dries, the artist began drawing. Then the pupils of his eyes were pierced tiny holes. From heat emitted by candles the icons started to “sweat” oil, which flowed through the holes.
Sometimes by the clergy becomes ashamed of such blasphemy on the part of their colleagues. Here is an excerpt from the interview of the Metropolitan of Nizhny Novgorod, which he gave in 2001: “we have a parish in the Bogorodsk district. Suddenly raised a fuss: 68 icons zamirotochila! I took his head. Guys, need some to have a conscience! Quickly set up a Commission. All the icons were wiped. The temple was sealed and closed. The week went on. Even if one drop came out!”
I wonder how God’s messengers do not fear the wrath of the Lord, have deceived millions of Christians around the world. Personally, I consider myself rather believing than religious. As for me, religion is about is a personal relationship with God. And the show let go those who need it. What do you think about this?
