I’ve heard claims from atheists that some people at Fatima during the miracle of the Sun in 1917 reported seeing nothing and that this “totally debunks the miracle.”
I believe that some people did see nothing but the atheist tries to exaggerate the numbers to the point where the power of suggestion would make people believe they had seen it when they also saw nothing.
Does anyone know the source for this? How many in the crowd saw nothing relative to those who actually witnessed the phenomenon?
What should a Catholic make of this?
If I had a sense of the accurate numbers of people who reported seeing nothing compared to the crowd, I’m sure this wouldn’t be an issue.
