Pareidolia Roundup

There’s been some more non-Jesus pareidolia in the news. An angel appeared in some clouds, and Buddha appeared in the sky over China.

Dear God, sorry I ate you. Isn’t it a sin to eat divine messages?

Pareidolia isn’t just for faces, v2.

One of my favorite instances of pareidolia.

Reader Glen Morris sent in this picture of a strange alien creature that has infested his office’s door.

That cthulhu thing in the door looks as much like Jesus as any other picture on the site.

Haha yeah, there are a very number that probably beats, mostly because some of the Jesus ones don't look like anything.

I'll add to the main database pretty much any reader submission where the reader simply calls it a Jesus image. Most of the Jesus pareidolia that makes the news doesn't seem to have any higher a standard.

By using three interdependent subsystems, the Aquaponics method facilitates the cultivation of plants and aquatic life forms inside a confined space using purely organic methods. So with this type of system, the water could be recycled over and over. Growing fish that may easily catch diseases and parasites can be disheartening.
