Default Pareidolia: Why we see faces in hills, the Moon and toasties

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22686500

Quote:
People have long seen faces in the Moon, in oddly-shaped vegetables and even burnt toast, but a Berlin-based group is scouring the planet via satellite imagery for human-like features. What's behind our desire to see faces in our surroundings, asks Lauren Everitt.
It's got Marmite Jesus and Toasted Cheese Sandwich Mary, as well as various things that look like Hitler, faces on Mars and so on.

Dog Butt Looks Like Jesus Christ In A Robe

Quote:
Jesus is always with us.

He's on our toast. He's in our fish sticks. He hangs out on our tortillas, our sting rays and our receipts. So is it that surprising, then, to find his holy visage on not one, but two dog butts?

Chef Holy sighting on Scottsdale cheesecake

A Scottsdale family said their cheesecake is a Christmas miracle.

When they pulled the dessert out of the oven, it cracked as it cooled. According to the family, the cake crack resembles a crucifix.

God doesn't look happy, maybe he is deciding what the lightning is going to hit.

To me it could be Gandof or Dumbledor.

Bear Lumber yard owner finds Jesus in tree trunk

Quote:
MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC) - At the Mid-South Sawmilling lumber yard, there was a cut of wood that jumped out to owner Daniel Turbeville.

He said he saw something sacred as he was working and cutting slabs.

"Talking to a couple of people that work with me," Turbeville said, "We kind of decided that looked like the depiction of Christ as we know it."

My Jesus googles must need a new prescription, 'cause I just don't see it. Looks like just a slab of wood to me.

Does this make me an unbeliever?

Wonder if the kid's going to turn out precocious, and run away and be found preaching in the temple . . .

(maybe she was waiting to show up again until some temples would let her preach while female?)

Actually, up close it looks more like the face of a basset hound to me.
