It’s a fact that we humans have a burning desire to recognize faces in just about any random assortment of stains, patterns, or protrusions. It’s just how we are wired.
So, when someone believes that Jesus or the Mother Mary has appeared to them via a burnt grilled cheese sandwich, I tend tend to giggle a bit, but don’t outright think they are insane due to the whole “face” thing.
Now, I myself have never been visited by a holy water stain but I have to say after witnessing the miracle of ET on a piece a wood (and many thanks to Unreality for posting the pic) I too am overcome with a deep spiritual need to look at it first hand, fall to my knees in prayer, and fork over some of my hard-earned cash to whomever owns the board so that they can properly shellac it.
Now, perhaps this whole ET’s-face-in-a-board is simply a coincidence and the patterns I attribute to his squat holiness is simply my need to fill my spirit with something other than beer and snack cakes, but maybe, just maybe, this is a sign from the galaxies that we should all turn on our heart light.
That, or it’s a stunt for a new Neil Diamond album.
