    I don't really understand what merits posting this. Especially because you don't seem to care enough about it to say anything.

    I could have gone on about confirmation bias and the likelihood of finding any patterns at all in rocks in you look hard enough, but I thought that was stating the obvious. I'm sorry.

    I disagree. That is quite obviously an image of Krishna.

    My personal history involves a fair amount of hallucinogens and even I don't see anything...

    But I'm sure many supporters of the Young Men's Christian Association will agree with the Dallas folk. :biggrin:

    I don't see anything on that slab that resembles anything.

    Interesting how people can look at things and try to correlate patterns with other things they saw.

    Like the "Martian face," looked like it had eyes and a nose so it must have been built by aliens.

    Hey, how did they get my photo?! :grumpy: Okay, I see the silhouette of someone holding a whip, but there's no features (and how do they know what Jesus looked like anyway...I have never seen a painting, sketch or photo from the time to document anything of that sort). :wink:

    It allows for even more covert religion bashing by pointing to the religious equivalent of crackpots, and the "unwashed masses".

    Religion bashing is allowed as long as we are clever about it.

    I see something on that slab and it looks a lot like a marble company selling a chunk of rock at a really sweet price.

    I see a large Hispanic pilgrimage coming soon. It would make a good place for a Customs check point.

    I thought it looks me like after I've had too much to drink.

    I guess some people will see what they want to see.

    Here's another similar incident: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,353230,00.html

    I'd like to point out that Sledge and the "people" that have talked to her about this are probably the religious equivalents of crackpots and should not be expected to represent the views of mainstream religious folks. Most Christians, I imagine, do not believe in omens or signs.

    False alarm.

    Here's the real truth:

    So what does it look like when I pray?
    The Jesus-Cheeto prayer paradox.....
    It hurts my head just thinking about it.

    Yes, and I'm sure this company did it for the free publicity. There have been potato chips, cheese sandwiches, a lump of melted chocolate, this list goes on.

    Before anyone gets offended, I'm locking the thread.
