From Bigfoot on the Moon to the face of Jesus in a piece of toast - why do we see faces where none exist ?


Evolution given us a way to find rapidly a neanderthal creep in the wood waiting to throw a spear in our back? Just a way to incite fear and protect our punny sapiens life.

It's not just important to notice faces from an evolutionary standpoint....It's also about knowing if something is looking at us and (if human) knowing which faces are friend or stranger or foe. In addition to pareidolia being a thing, we also can quickly recognize faces we've seen before.
