Holy pareidolia, Batman! It's Jesus! Well, actually, it's an image on a cancer patient's MRI that she thinks looks like Jesus. She calls it a divine discovery. Here’s a transcript from an Oct. 5th video CNN did on the story (you can watch the video by clicking on it in the column at the left).


This belongs with those "man bites dog" kind of stories to my mind but, hey, CNN calls it news so who am I to argue?


More, including the CNN video and a slide show of other deities who show up on MRI scans (there's even one for PZ Myers fans), here.



For PZ Myers fans: Squid Jesus!

When looking at the 'side view,' I can see what looks like a jackalope head.....hhmmmm, what could that mean??

I think people see what they want to see. Pareidolia certainly fits this case, in my opinion.
Maybe it's just me. I see a squid in the gray areas. At the top, a triangular frill surrounds an octopoid body (with two evil looking white eyes) whose many arms are encircling a struggling man-like form with outstretched arms(Jesus? visible only from the torso up) just below the center of the scan.

I guess that's one twisted psyche I have!
Heavy sigh.
I see an alien Buddha with a funny hat and a crystal ball.
Talk about havin' jesus on the brain!
I can sort of see the squid.

I can not for the life of me see the Jesus.
I can't help wondering what they do to the doctor if they see a Mohammed in there.
I give up. Where is Waldo?
This gent wins the thread.
O yuck! It is Squid Jesus!
