AN investigation into the authenticity of weeping religious statues at a Brisbane church has become as much of a mystery as the incident itself.

Griffith University professor of history and philosophy Wayne Hudson said there was no guarantee there would be a definitive finding.

Professor Hudson said incidents of the type seen at Inala were not likely to have a simple scientific explanation.

"It's very important to take manifestations of this kind seriously," he said.

"Studying them can take an extremely long time, but often it is never clear even 30, 40 or 50 years later.

"There is something wrong with the idea that there is a mystery and we'll study it and it won't be a mystery any more."
