Jesus in MRI image

Tammie Cohrs of Greer, South Carolina was recently diagnosed with oral cancer. Inside the MRI machine to see how the cancer was progressing, she began to pray. And whaddyaknow! Jesus appeared in the MRI image! Really though, this should come as no surprise. Two years ago, Jesus's mother showed up in an MRI scan too. Praise pareidolia! From WPSD:
 Images 320*236 Jesus+Mri Cohrs said what happened while she was having the MRI scan brought her to tears. "I just had this wonderful experience that I was with Him," Cohrs said.

Cohrs said the image is proof that Jesus was indeed with her. "I just think it's amazing," Cohrs said. "I don't care what anybody else thinks."

Cohrs will be meeting with doctors at the Cancer Center of the Carolinas on Tuesday to review her MRI results. She said she is looking forward to hearing what doctors have to say about her discovery.

  1. And the black mass to the left of the face looks like a shocked, mouth-agape monkey face.

    Cohrs said what happened while she was having the MRI scan brought her to tears. “I just had this wonderful experience that I was with a shocked, mouth-agape monkey face,” Cohrs said.

    Cohrs said the image is proof that the shocked, mouth-agape monkey face was indeed with her. “I just think it’s amazing,” Cohrs said. “I don’t care what anybody else thinks.”

    1. “And the black mass to the left of the face looks like a shocked, mouth-agape monkey face.”

      I just like the inclusion of “Black Mass” in the comments.

  2. Is it worth pointing out that this “jesus” image is just the product of someone extracting the “baby on the knee” from the old photo a few days ago and blending it into the MRI pic?

    Or maybe I just can’t unsee the “baby on the knee” shape. :)

  3. Proof people can see whatever patterns they’re strongly looking for in noisy pictures: I can’t see the slightest bit of Jesus in this. What a relief.

  4. That’s funny. I see Commandant Lassard (George Gaynes) giving Howard Beale’s (Peter Finch) “mad as hell” speech from _Network_.

    Should I call my therapist?

    1. @Anon #8: I was thinking along those same lines. At first I thought it looked a bit like the fourth Doctor (Tom Baker); but then I thought maybe it looked more like the third (Pertwee). But the more I looked at it, the less it looked like any one specific Doctor and more like a pastiche of the Doctor: The mop of salt-and-pepper hair, prominent nose and protruding, clean-shaven chin, the turned up collar and something that looks like a cravat or scarf around his neck. Maybe we’re seeing the third Doctor regenerating into the fourth Doctor; or maybe this is a future version of the Doctor. I’m not sure. Nonetheless, it’s clear to me that the only Lord in this image has to be a Time Lord.

      But what’s that figure next to him? Could it be a Cyberman? But it looks more like a snarling ape’s face wearing an ancient armored helmet.

  5. “She said she is looking forward to hearing what doctors have to say about her discovery.”

    If the docs say it’s a tumor and has to be removed, then what?

  6. A guide to religious pareidolia:
    Step One:
    Can you see anything vaguely resembling a face in the image?
    Yes: see step two.
    No: see step three.

    Step Two: Does the face have any sort of blob around the mouth area?
    Yes: It’s a beard; congratulations, you’ve seen Jesus!
    No: Congratulations, you’ve seen Mary!

    Step Three:
    Does the image have any sort of vaguely symmetrical, oval-shaped blob in it?
    Yes: Congratulations, you’ve seen a robed Mary!
    No: Look again. Go back to step one.

  7. “I’m very sorry, Ms. Cohrs, but Jesus is malignant and aggressive, and apparently wants to meet you in person in about six weeks.”

  8. I see a monkey, an ape, a T Rex, a fox, a sheep and a cow, and I see a farmer, a hillbilly, two aliens, a Nazi and a G-Man, but no Jesus. There’s enough there to see whatever you want.

  9. no. it’s Vangelis.

    surely it’s time to admit that all sightings of jesus are, IN REALITY, Vangelis.

  10. Sorry I don’t know this from firsthand experience – but do you see an image while you’re in an MRI machine? I thought the image just went to the technicians, like in CT scanning.

  11. You’d think the only two people ever to exist in history (and even that’s debatable) were Mary and Jesus. If it is a real person, it could just as easily be the ghost of Jeremiah Ackenthorpe, a forgotten sewer cleaner from Victorian England, known to his friends as ‘Jerry the Stink’. Or it might be anyone else WITH A FACE. Let’s compare the image with accurate, verifiable images of Jesus shall we? Oh that’s right… etc. The woman is simply ignorant and it’s all wishful thinking. And I’m ranting. Good night!

    PS: Why would Jesus be listening to an iPod Nano, since one is slung round the neck of the person in the image, and the headphones are clearly visible?

  12. Possibly Vader? If it is genuine, it shows that whether or not airport scanners find terrorists, they might at least find Jesus.

  13. That’s nothing – I had a brain mri, and one layer revealed a psychedelic panda bear, and the next layer behind it held a slow loris… I’m pretty sure the slow loris keeps the panda in check. Good thing too.

  14. Dude. Thats Susan Atkins! And she’s stabbing a monkey in the back!!! I’m glad that’s not my MRI. That chick is so screwed…

    1. On a completely off topic note: “The Root of the Confusion” would make a great band name. Psychedelic or prog rock, maybe? Or perhaps new wave?

  15. I saw a dollar sign in my MRI. For reals! Crisp and clean and clear, not of this fuzzy jesus thing.

    DESTINY!!!
