It was raining stones - for 6 years

A case of apport that is really strange - (because of the effort made by the police force involved to find the root of this phenomenon, but to no to no avail) - is the following one:

The incident of stones bombarding a couple of adjacent houses in Birmingham during the night time initially points to shenanigans and normal means by vandals. But as the police got involved, staked out the place, putting totally 300 man-hours into this case. They heard stones, during the night stake-outs, that seem to come out of nowhere, hitting the house randomly, verticality (falling down on-top of the roof), and horizontally (hitting the housewalls and windows), but they couldn't see, or find any kind of perpetrators even though they, themselves, stood there in the garden.

It was going on (as far the police involved) for 18 months, with incidents almost every night, regardless weather or seasons. And it was ONLY hitting these particular houses, even though these five houses was chain-houses connected with others The full length of incidents was going on for 6 years!.

Wonderful post, but I can't help feel a tinge of concern that a mere six years. Might not be extraordinary enough.

Yeah, extraordinary events requires extraordinary lengths. 6 years isn't enough. Why didn't it last for like; 8 years??...or 15?....or why didn't it go on forever???... 6 years??  waaay too short....it just feels like a hoax to me.... way to vague and inconsistent.....and why didn't the whole world get bombarded with stones for 6 years.....tell me that??? Wink

It's a hard-knock life being a skeptic...

Ah interesting, will check it out.
'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'
