The owners of a 2006 Hyundai Getz have claimed strange things happen to their car, as tens-of-thousands of true believers flock there to see what it is.
Owners Cherry and Mark Pye claim the miracles began soon after their 21-year-old son Alan was killed in a car accident last year. Soon after his death, they reported oil weeping from 1.3L engine of their Hyundai. The family believes Alan is responsible for the oil and is his way of communicating through Jesus.
Word spread and believers came flocking to 84 Wadhurst Way in Butler Western Australia to see for themselves.
The family claims there's a lot more than oil leaks, such as the box for the air filter that has barcode numbers significant in scripture and the radio aerial fashioned from a coat hangar that looks “just like the crucifix on which Jesus died.”
"Many miracles happen all the time.” Added Mrs Pye. “This oil has appeared every Tuesday, coincidently just before Mark is due to see his Probation Officer. The other day for instance the low petrol light came, yet we made it all the way from Woolworths to the bottle shop before we got to the petrol station" she said.
Mr Pye claims the oil is holy. "No one can touch it. Many times people have seen the oil come alive, usually when we put a match to it. It’s like Moses and the burning bush trying to tell us something we can’t yet work out but at $5 a guess I am sure someone will pass on a profound message at some point,” he said.
The mysterious incidences at the Pye's house have created some kind of phenomena. They've had around 200 people a week visit their house to see the oil, and have sold more than 1.5 million cotton buds, which have been dipped in the 'miracle oil' for people to take home.
The oil has been scientifically tested, and was found to be a mix of oil and dust, but no one could say where it was coming from.
Nijel Thorpe, president of The Australian Skeptics, has his own theory.
"Quite frankly, it looks like the engine has got a leak," he said. “There isn't a single area of the garage that isn't covered in oil.”
Mr Pye says the largest patch is a caricature of Jesus. Mr Saunders suggests it looks more like an irregular quadrilateral. “Jesus is represented in a number of ways.” Replied Mr Pye indignantly
