    SPOOKY!  But then, it's almost Hallowed Eve when the goblins are out.

    So what's going on, where is the on/off switch?
    Is this phenomena characteristic of biblical stories?
    Keeping the candle lit until I get back home......
    May LIGHT illuminate all the darkness in our world.

    Ever-Burning Lamps

    lamps

    Lamps that kept on burning without using any fuel were discovered all over the world during the Middle Ages. These lamps were sealed into tombs, supposedly to ensure the deceased had light to guide them on their way to the afterlife. Some of these tombs were opened years later, and the lamps were still burning.

    Superstitious types became terrified of this phenomenon, destroying any ever-burning lamp they came across. People accused pagan priests of trickery. Others simply refused to believe that a lamp could burn for an indefinite period of time. The vast majority claimed that the Devil was to blame.

    Speculation was also rife that Hebrew communities had discovered and preserved what today is known as electricity. According to the legend, a French rabbi named Jechiele possessed a lamp that could light up by itself, with no fuel or wick. Jechiele, according to this tale, invented a special button that would discharge an electric current to his metal door knocker. If someone touched the door knocker at the same time the rabbi touched the nail, the person would receive a shock and double over.

    Even with electricity being a common thing nowadays, all who have tried to replicate the ever-burning lamps have failed. Therefore the question remains: How were these lamps able to keep burning for hundreds of years without fuel?

      I could use a few those lamps.

      They would be a great savings on the electric bill! Big Smile

        Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

        For a lead role in a cage?

          Thank you Harvest Moon for appropriate cartoon as your positive participation is always welcomed

          As for the illumination goes, there is an ancient quotation saying that some can be considered "a lamp unto my feet"

          Hope this beautifully articulated lamp shine through!
