Back in 1984, scientists in Siberia dug an experimental well some 12 kilometers deep. At the bottom, they discovered water and gas flows, rarely seen rock formations, and temperatures as high as 180℉. (Pretty hot in Siberia.)
This event has been transformed over the years, growing into a popular christian legend. In the “re-imagined” event, the well was even deeper, and the temperatures even hotter. (Over 2000℉!) The scientists dropped a microphone into the well, and at the bottom they hear the screams of thousands of suffering souls. (Maybe even millions!) The scientists all ran off, and since then more people have been flocking to christianity than ever.
This tale has been variously told and retold by TBN, (the Christian Broadcasting network) christian magazines, and other christian TV shows. It has been at least twice debunked by two separate christian magazines, but picked up again by the Weekly World News, who claimed that 13 men were killed as the devil burst out of the well.
In related news I am starting the auction of a potato that looks exactly like the Virgin Mary’s right ovary at $20,000.
