In terms of post-mortem sightings, Elvis gets a lot of play and so does the Virgin Mary. The real champ of random latter-day cameos, however, is Jesus Christ. But up until recently, there was no efficient way to keep up with every oil stain, pancake, and gnarled tree hollow the famed redeemer showed up in. Now, it looks like our prayers have been answered.
The Jesus Face Database is an interactive website that allows users to pinpoint all the many spots around the world where people of questionable lucidity lay eyes on their lord and savior. It's a zoomable map with a color-coded guided to the various types of sightings, which include those that appear in food, nature, and even animals. (A cow in Connecticut has a birthmark that could conceivably double as a crucifix on his head.) Clicking on each marker summons a photo of the apparition in question so you can judge its Jesus-ness yourself.
It's interesting to see which spots around the world the Messiah tends to frequent. There are a high concentration of sightings in London, as well as the northeast area of the United States. Are these people all delusional? Do we all just see what we want to see in any given situation, until the hammer of science pounds in the wobbly nails of certainty? Judging by the gossamer sliver of resemblance between most of these ironing-table accidents and such to the face of Jesus, the answer is yes. That doesn't make it any less fun, however, to browse, and to wonder...

Most stories about Jesus apparitions are posted here at FR within microseconds of appearing anywhere on the internet. Let’s see if we can improve on that record.
Somebody in Michigan has a sense of humor.
In your post I can clearly see Jesus puffing on a stogie.

Christ comes to the Mount of Olives, not food.
They are trying to take away your business Alex!
I’m not sure organizations that ridicule Christians belong on this site. It certainly doesn’t belong under Religion.
If so, it’s not the buzz that should worry him, but that jaundice looks a bit outta hand ?

I totally agree, firebrand.
As for those concerned about ridiculing Christians where is it taught to use food as an augury? Or that those claiming such things are Christians?
I agree that Christianity lies elsewhere, but we ought not mock people who are so eager to see him that they imagine things. They are our fellow Christians, and this blog smacks of ridicule.
I don't think mocking is always bad. There are also motives besides eagerness that drive these sightings.
Well, whatever that nefarious motive might be, let’s make fun of that. We’re getting a little too close to mocking Christians here and I don’t like it at all.
You and I disagree on the 'Christianity-ness' of these likenesses. Where are such things discussed in the annals of scripture? Where are the stories of true faith in Christ upheld by a likeness in food, sheetrock mud, concrete etc? Or do they lend themselves more to a distraction away from the things of Christ?
You are not familiar with people who see things, I guess. If the image is not really there, then they are a little hyper or whatever, but they are not necessarily poor Christians. You don’t know them. Maybe they follow the two great commandments with more devotion every day. I’m not going to discuss this anymore. You may have the last word.
