Thumbnail image for emily.jpgTruth is stranger than fiction. Hey, that's why we're all journalists.

In just this past week, we reported a flying car hit the second story of a house in Elgin. And every one of the top stories on our website today is about Charlie Sheen, who allegedly has warlock fangs and tiger blood.

Today, our cover story ("It's a miracle! Judson professor, former students find surprise success with documentary on miracles") is about Darren Wilson, who doesn't do strange things; he's a college professor, he said.

But Wilson certainly has captured many strange things on film in his two documentaries, "Finger of God" and "Furious Love." That includes gemstones falling from the sky during church services in the Chicago suburbs, a deaf woman responding to prayers that she speak in Africa... and, of course, gold teeth appearing in the mouths of Wilson's aunt and uncle.

See for yourself:

Finger of God

Furious Love

For more information about Wilson's documentaries and current projects, visit Wanderlust Productions' website. Learn more about the Furious Love Event Wanderlust is planning as a supplement to its films on the Furious Love website. And let us know what you think of the strange things Wilson has captured -- or the miracles you've witnessed -- in the comments here on Between the Bylines.
