What is the craziest unexplained event you have witnessed? Jennifer Scholl, MSW from The Ohio State University (2018) First, let me say that I am and remain a huge sceptic, even after this happened. Ive thought of every possible explanation and I still have no idea how this happened. Whether you choose to believe me or not, I have no reason to make this up and like I said, Im skeptical every time I hear a story like this. But nonetheless, here is the completely unexplainable event I witnessed:
In 1999, my mother was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and was put on multiple drugs, including prednisone. She was having seizures and her over all mental and physical functioning were being severely impacted by the tumor. Her doctor very stupidly failed to mention that the high dose of prednisone hed put her on causes potassium to leech out of the body, so she went into hypokalemia. Her heart stopped and the jolt when she hit the floor was hard enough to cause it to restart, enabling her to call 911. I was asleep at the time in the house and woke up to my brother telling me that police and paramedics were downstairs working on her.
We kept an eye on the situation that night because it was looking catastrophic, as they had to keep going back in to resuscitate her. Eventually we went home (they kicked us out basically) and just hoped shed make it through the night while they pumped her full of potassium and other drugs through her IV. The next morning, we hadnt heard a word and assumed she was doing fine. I got up and came in to see her and was relieved to find her awake and alert. She was also very loopy and positively euphoric. The first thing she told me was that shed left her body the night before, and found herself walking with Jesus on a beach. She was so ecstatic, talking about this amazing experience shed had, that Jesus had told her it wasnt her time yet and that she still had many years yet to live.
My response was lets just say there was a lot smiling, nodding, placating oh wow that sounds amazing, Mom-type responses from me. I was secretly thinking that whatever drugs theyd given her must have been uh the good stuff if you know what I mean! So after maybe 15 or 20 minutes of this, her nurse came in to check her over, and so this woman also got to hear the story, and like me was clearly very amused and just going along with it.
When the nurse pulled back the sheets to look at my mothers feet and ankles, I heard the nurse gasp and freeze, like she had no idea what to do. I looked over and saw what had her so shocked, and needless to say, I did the same. My mothers legs were covered in sand, almost up to her knees. Like shed been walking on a windy beach and the sand had gradually got stuck to her legs as she walked in the surf. The nurse peeled her socks off (which were the socks issued by the hospital and put on her feet the night before), and found that her feet were also covered in sand, and it was even between her toes. She ran out to get other staff in, and before we knew it, there was a parade of doctors, nurses and patient aides coming through the room to look at my moms sand-covered feet. I could hear people in the hallway debating how a woman in Ohio, nowhere near any sand at all, whose heart had stopped several times in the night and who had sensors on her body to detect if she got out of bed, was able to walk through sand, despite the fact that she hadnt been covered in any when she got there. If she had been covered in sand, they would have noticed and cleaned her off when they dressed her and put the socks on her feet. No one was ever able to come up with a logical explanation, its not like they were keeping sand traps in the hallway! And we certainly werent keeping big sand pits, or any sand period, at home. They later gave her the socks in a baggie, still covered in sand.
In the end, my mother did survive the brain tumor, despite being told she had 6 months at most. She found what was at the time a new, experimental treatment, called stereotactic radiosurgery and underwent the procedure as only the 6th patient to ever have it done, and in the end it saved her life. She had more than 15 happy years with us before dying of breast cancer almost 4 years ago, and always kept those socks as a reminder of the time she walked with Jesus. So whether you believe it or not, that is the strangest, most unexplainable event Ive ever witnessed in my life.
Some comments from the source:
Onne Vegter Great story. Must say this is no more difficult to believe than the idea that at some point there was nothing, and by sheer chance without any cause, nothing exploded in a big bang and formed the universe with billions and billions of galaxies. And by chance, life formed on one tiny planet and not only survived, but reproduced and thrived and evolved into millions of different and incredible living organisms, ranging from microbes to microbiologists. Just unbelievable. Much easier to believe that God exists and your mother had an encounter with Jesus. Thanks for sharing.
Thomas Munos I am a Christian because Christianity makes the most rational sense. I would be careful of science because there are many scientists invested in their atheism so it impacts their science. Here is one scientist who challenges the claims of those who pass abiogenesis (the formation of the first life) as easy. Many scientists treat abiogenesis as a simple step which is not true!
Mika Life That's fascinating! I'm atheist, so I definitely don't believe in god, but, I haven't done enough research on the scientific explanations to see which one I believe in. So, I guess I'm kind of in the same boat for not believing either (that is, until I do my research and figure out which of the scientific explanations -- if any -- I believe)
Howard Miller Sciences are good discipline for understanding specific phenomena. I suspect we actually only understand a tiny fraction of the universe. A mathematician, Kurt Goedel, proved that if you make your math rigorous enough, there will be things that exist but you can't prove.
Soetoro’s two election victories.
Watching a Democrat Debate?
That is a simply amazing story and lifts my heart on a Saturday Morning,
But i must admit, at some point i thought Jesus would say Epstine didnt kill himself....
Hey Masters Degree, did you mean skeptic (a person who questions the validity or authenticity of something purporting to be factual).
Sad that she’s gone now, being the only one who can answer what Jesus wears to the beach.
Yes. The craziest unexplained event is anyone actually watching a Democrat debate.
Thanks for posting this!
Sweet story and I would love to believe it. But I don’t.
Epstein not killing himself.
The impeachment hearings.
50s Highway Patrol mini marathons on YouTube?
I’m coming off a migraine or whatever that hits me hard in the head.
What happened to the socks in the baggie? Surely somebody can produce them to add validity to the story.
I would have to held down by Rosie O’Donnell, Whoopie Goldberg, Jerry Nadler and a couple of Budweiser Clydesdales and be forced to watch it.
It would be a Clockwork Orange moment...
It’s true because I read it on the Internet.
Which makes me wonder, do you think Broderick Crawford step into the Role of Tony Soprano? #;^)
