    Pareidolia strikes deep
    Into your heart it will creep

    • Anon_Mahna says:

      It starts when you’re surfing a wave,
      You step on shore line, jesus face on  back of a stingray….

  2. shamowfski says:

    Looks like “Harry” from Harry and the Hendersons to me.

  3. simonbarsinister says:

    Stingray’s are not “harmful things”.
    Jesus, on the other hand…

    • RuthlessRuben says:

      …isn’t really harmful either. I have no problem with Jesus, it’s his fan base that gets to me.

  4. Ethan Holman says:

    Stingrays, like Jesus, are fascinating things that can be quite dangerous in the wrong circumstances. Neither one is “harmful,” because “harmful,” to me, suggests that somethings very existence causes harm. But both can certainly be dangerous. I don’t believe that this is a divine message, because I don’t believe in the magical bits of any religion, but this is the first example of pareidolia that has me thinking about interesting (to me) connections between the “media” and the “content.”

    “I just kind of thought it looked like a bearded homeless man […] But when I posted pictures on Instagram, one of my friends was like, ‘That’s Jesus.’”

    I thought Jesus WAS a homeless man.

    • angusm says:

      Reading the New Testament, I got the impression that he probably couch-surfed a lot, but I’m not sure you could call him homeless in the strictest sense.

    Is there anyone more insane than religious nutjobs?

  7. dculberson says:

    Looks more like Jerry Garcia to me.  It’s telling you to quit proselytizing and start smoking pot.

  8. Sparkstalker says:

    Jesus – too busy to stop pain and suffering in the world because of his cameos on dead fish….He’s gone Hollywood…..

  9. biginjapan says:

    Pretty sure that’s The Dude.

  10. Funny that, I saw an image of a Velociraptor in a gasoline puddle on my way to work…

  11. Nagurski says:

    I’m wondering if anyone has done a study on what elements are essential for an image to gain currency as a Jesus replica. Long hair, for sure. A full beard, check. Does the face have to be somewhat long? I think so, but how short of a face can be Jesusy enough? Where do the features have to fall on the Caucasian-African spectrum? Thesis topic, anyone?

    Also, “such a harmful thing”? Poor lady.

      “I’m wondering if anyone has done a study on what elements are essential for an image to gain currency as a Jesus replica.”

      I believe that crippling superstition is the only requirement.

  12. angusm says:

    I wonder if the people who believe in these things have ever seriously considered the implications of living in a universe where the Creator is obliged to send us ambiguous messages by putting his mugshot on rotting fish and pieces of toast. I know that He moves in mysterious ways His wonders to perform, but still …

    I’d be curious to know if theologists have come to any consensus on what this unorthodox mode of communication tells us about the nature of God.

    George Harrison after a long day.

  14. Alex says:

    I see Alan Moore, but fair enough.

  15. Nathan Swick says:

    Not that we need to further establish that Ms. Scheldt is something of a simpleton, but that’s not a Stingray, it’s a Southern Eagle Ray.  And they really are harmless.  

    • Nagurski says:

       Similar, but it’s a Cownose Ray, I think. Does have a barb, near the tail base. I’m pretty sure Southern Eagle Rays are confined to the Southern Hemisphere, but not certain.

  16. Tom Swartz says:

    Nope, definitely just a stingray in some mud. 
    Also, “Dangerous”? Hardly. 

  17. royaltrux says:

    Why the long face?

  18. BBNinja says:

    Jesus’s chin is that stingray’s butt apparently.  In other news…every guy with a beard is Jesus? :/
    I see faces in a lot of things.  In fact, people’s brains are wired for object and facial recognition insomuch that the human brain actively seeks to create patterns even when there aren’t any.  You can stare into a carpet and see faces and other things, just like with clouds.  If you’re a devout religious person great, proclaim your faith, practice your religion but don’t get all worked up when you see a beardface after you burn your toast.

  19. Mark Dow says:

    Makes the stingray in the shroud of Turin really pop out.

  20. Crashproof says:

    Jesus Stingray is the name of my new Nirvana cover band.

  21. cjhowareya says:

    My homie Jesus had a badass Stingray.

  22. joshlake says:

  23. Flashman says:

    I for one welcome our new myliobatiformic Messiah

  24. Looks just like Chuck Norris to me.

  25. Bonnie Ash says:

    The chin. The chin.  Remind you of a South Park episode maybe? An Alien from MIB2?  Or just Peter Griffin’s chin b….

  26. Robert says:

    Jesus, stingray.

  27. andre paris says:

    it’s that drunk Canadian singing Bohemian Rhapsody

  28. Petzl says:

    That’s just great.
    25 years of atheism down the drain.

  29. Ian Anthony says:

    I don’t see the resemblance.

  30. Well, Jesus’ Dad was The King Of All Cosmos

  31. Art says:

    Gives new meaning to the “Jesus Fish”. 
    Now how do I slap this one on my truck’s bumper????

  32. Geek Aesthete says:

    I could be mistaken, but I believe that’s the King of All Cosmos.

  33. MandoZink says:

    Damn! And I thought it was Jim Henson!

  34. pjcamp says:

    That’s not Jesus!

    It’s Eric Idle.

  35. self-propelled says:

    “…such a beautiful image on such a harmful thing.”

    I’d say she got it exactly backwards.

  36. BombBlastLightingWaltz says:

    Terry Gilliam is at it again. Looks like a wayward dead head fan.

  37. Culturedropout says:

    Throw that thing in a bucket of water.  If it comes back to life and swims off after 3 days, we’ll talk…

  38. professor says:

    It looks to me more like Iggy Pop…. and let’s face it (no pun intended) Iggy having a bit of rumpy-pumpy with a mama-stingray is not beyond the realms of possibility

  39. Henry Pootel says:

    Clearly a Man Ray work.

  40. retepslluerb says:

    Whoever designed our visual cortex has much to answer for!

  41. McGauth925 says:

    NAH!  That’s not Jesus.  That’s my uncle Ned, high (low?) on downers.

  42. WinstonSmith2012 says:

    Yeah, everyone sees the white Anglo-Saxon protestant version of what Jesus looked like, you know, the one in the most famous paintings of him from people who never saw him.  Here’s a scientific take with a forensic model:

    “British scientists, assisted by Israeli archeologists, have re-created what they believe is the most accurate image of the most famous face in human history”
