Jesus Toast: Pareidolia You Can Believe In!
Posted by mattusmaximus on December 3, 2011
As a fun way of sharing some skepticism of “miraculous vision” claims, I wanted to share with you a really funny YouTube a friend sent me. It pokes fun at the phenomenon of pareidolia, wherein people claim to see all manner of wild things – Jesus, the Virgin Mary, aliens, Michael Jackson, etc – in everything from the clouds to their shower curtain. Of course, we know from modern science that these are illusions of perception, because our brains are marvelous pattern recognition machines, causing us to sometimes see things that are not really there.
Okay, enough seriousness. Time for some fun… check out the “Jesus Toast” video, and share it with a friend. Enjoy!
