It must have been holy water that made the face of Jesus appear miraculously on a paper towel.

Martin Cotterill, 46, was stunned to see an image of the Messiah emerge before his eyes during a visit to a health clinic.

He had just undergone treatment at Longford Health Centre, Coventry, and the blue paper towel had been put over his foot to dry it.

Now even this is stretching it. I mean come on. An image of a male with a beard and long hair that appears where it doesn't belong is automatically Jesus?? We don't even know if that's what he truly looked like. But this looks more like the face of a robot than a man of any kind.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

It looks like The Simpson's version of Jesus... Maybe. Still, why does every 'image' of a man HAVE to be Jesus?

I find it right funny that a Jew from that time would not look anything like a caucasian. It seems whenever Jesus likes to make a guest appearance, he looks downright like a white-boy. Funnily, the hairstyles (if I recall correctly) of that time for the Hebrews (unless under a Nazarene vow, which also forbade wine and touching dead bodies) would have been much shorter than the long haired be-goatee'd individual.

Also, Paul would have had some issues with Jesus' hippy hair... "Does not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame to him?" (1Co 11:14).

Though the beard was likely.

Basically, it isn't Jesus appearing, it is our minds filling in a cultural representation. Once again, pareidolia to the religious extreme.

EDIT: "Out" is not "our". I have no excuse.

I once found Sky Daddy, Sky Buddy and Sky Spook (yes, the Sky Trio), each on separate pieces of butt wipe after a particularly greasy meal of tacos and tamales purchased on the street in Mexico City.

And I find The Flying Spaghetti Monster often at Italian restaurants.

Really!

I must have some special favour with them.

It only a matter of perspective.  People see Jesus, in toast, Mountains, Wal-mart receipts <--- that was a funny one.  Its like when people read the bible, they see and interpret it they was they want to....and see what they want to see.  Indeed it is rather silly, but then again we all believed in some fat dood that brought us presents every year right?
Jesus is just Santa for adults :P    Just sayin.

I was thinking the same thing!  Reminded me of Caesar from the new Rise of the Planet of the Apes movie.
