Iím amazed at what xians will believe. They buy a sandwich and a pretzel that resembles Mary on ebay for thousands of dollars. I guess theyíre good for one thing-money.

Bette Shober (L) and Joanne Vrablik (R) take a closer look at what people believe to be an image of the Virgin Mary under a freeway underpass in Chicago, April 18, 2005. Police said the image might have been caused by stains from road salt that dripped from the Kennedy expressway onto the wall, but hundreds of believers have been coming to the underpass to view the image and pray at the spot.

Happy birthday Mars...
I was chatting with a friend not too long ago and we both agreed it looked more like the virgin Mary's "cooter" rather than her...

As a joke, my friend in high school wrote an essay about how she could see Jesus in the textured plaster on her bathroom wall, but ONLY while she was sitting on the toilet.

Our English teach took it seriously, and struck up a big conversation about how she goes to church with lots of people who have had similar experiences and it's such a blessing to get such a sign...

In the end, we both blew her cover when we busted up laughing at teach...

Instead of showing up under bridges, on taco shells, or perhaps even a nacho. Why dont christians wonder why dosnt "God" just write his name across the sky in giant Flaming letters? Dosn't this seem demeaning, "mary" now has to live under the freeway.

Oh the values of questioning

Hey it's fine by me.

To each,thier own little insanity

But when they start seeing god in the patterns on the used toilet paper,I'm sorry. That's just a bit TOO close to reality for my tastes.

Unbelievable! With all of the churches around you'd think she'd show up there!

Reading this makes me want to make a Virgin de Guadelupe
image on a big piece of foam. I could cut it out in reverse like
a woodblock print and make motor oil Marys in parking lots!

There's a song by The Tiger Lillies, The Kronos Quartet, and Edward Gorey called "Jesus on The Windshield" which I think is about bird crap on a windshield in the shape of Jesus, which made the family that owned the car thousands of dollars.

One of the most ridiculous "signs from god" I have seen months ago, was this man from Italy :

He was eating oysters, and suddenly saw that on one shell, there was the head of Jesus.

Medias jumped on that of course, and lambs wanted to buy this "wonderful amulet". Damn, What a good business, I'm going to look right now in my dustbin to see if I see the face of Mary or Joseph somewhere!

I know that years ago, an Elvis Presley's fan in the U.S.A though that it was a sign, having seen the face of his idol on a chocolate cake's slice.

Some people are seeing a penis, some are seeing a vagina other maybe maria. There are only the signs you want to see. If I use my fantasy I see all three version also a dildo, a booster rocket...it is within your own imagationation what u see. And with my first look at it I saw a huge dildo

I found some more pictures courtesy of God. I can just hear them justifying it now-

ďIt sure looks like it. It must be a sign!Ē


ďI can touch it so it MUST be real.Ē


ďI told you what the Bible says. This means we canít have a gay wedding.Ē


ďSee Jimmy, this is why we should believe in pipedreams!Ē


No Jimmy! Donít touch her ďHolyĒ place!Ē


ďThis is the closest Iíve been to a woman in 6 months.Ē


Halleluiah!!

Don't known what people are trying to find in that. I only feel sorry for the kids. They trust in that what their parents say. Something like that can change a kid's life forever.
I hate those people who are telling everybody that this must a sign or something. That should be stopped.

The thing about Christianity and it's related denominations, is that they are nothing but a multi-million dollar business with branches setting up shop all around the world. If indeed it was a faith involved with nothing but 'love' and/or 'forgiveness', then there would be no requirement for their heirachy, wealth, or persecution. Wealth and hypocrisy is the way of Christendom, anything to make money, therefore, becomes symbolic of the faith itself, until the stage where burning money becomes 'blasphemous'.

Ah, I cant believe they were also hoaxes such as these on other countries!

Here in Philippines, there is a lot of it.
Plus, they were also a virgin mary who weeps in blood-tears in blood.
Well, if we call it a hoax, it is easy to fathom, for example is the virgin mary who weeps in blood-it is easy to say that there is cord or wire that flows the fluid(blood) through the eyes of a virgin mary image.

What amuses me as much as those xians gazing at wall secretions is how long this thread has gone without being locked. After all, I posted it to discuss the hows and the whys behind its fascination. Sure it looks like a Vagina but Iíd like to hear about the idiocy of herd mentality. How can anyone look at it and take it so seriously?
My first thoughts; the need to believe in something no matter how absurd.

Stupidity yes, I agree. I also think that in this day and age, with the world being the way it is. Nature disasters and high crime. People trying to scarifice their children to Jesus (did you hear about that?? I saw it on Fox News a few months back).

People are so desperate, hopeless, and in need of something to believe in, that even a salt water stain under a bridge is a miracle.

To me that is pathetic. AND, is I were an Xian, and if I spent all my time worshipping a God, and all he gave me was a dirty salt image under a bridge, I'd be offended and pissed off. "This is what my service means to you?" " A salt stain that looks like a giant pussy?" " Thanks Jesus!"

The very fact that they believe in gods is the absurdity.

Let's just agree to say, "It all goes downhill from there."

Stupid is as stupid DOES.

Oh yes...a sign from "god" indeed that a large percent of the population consists of religious fanatics.
One thing we'll never run out of in this world is stupid people.

>>How can anyone look at it and take it so seriously?

I know I've already posted this quote from the movie p a number of times on this messageboard. But hey, I still think it brilliantly sums up so many social phenomena:

"When your mind becomes obsessed with anything, you filter everything else out, and see that thing everywhere you look."

Now in this particular case, there are probably several reasons why people are looking at this wall discoloration saying "It's the Virgin Mary" and not something else. It's a combination of herd mentality and the hard-wired human abilities of pattern recognition and turning distorted images into familiar ones.

First of all, most of the people coming to see this are doing so because they were specifically told "Hey, there's a Virging Mary sighting over here!" So their minds already "know" what to look for. Second of all, everybody has heard the countless stories of Virgin Mary sightings over the years. So again, the mind is prepared for "another" one.

Though at any of these sightings, there are always a few people in the crowd who simply don't see the Virgin Mary. They're told that this is due to their lack of faith. But of course, those that aren't obsessed with the image won't be seeing it everywhere!

Hello Mars.

Beyond the need for most humans to have faith in the intangible, is the desperate search to have some physical proof of their beliefs. It is their form of validation.

The general society is not prepared to see its own essence as a form of validation, so it must externalize all aspects of their fears, hopes and actions as being controlled from the outside. That leads to the overwhelming sense of being hollow or unfulfilled, which in turn creates the need to stand and stare in the vain attempt at fulfillment. The reality is plain to see.

Those wall watchers are being controlled, but not towards the direction of truly grasping meaning and knowledge. They are led by the nose towards dissatisfaction with the self. They are kept mentally pliable and soft, for colorfully variegated reasons, by an equally motley group of individuals with their own reasons. I could expound upon those many reasons, but I think most among this board are knowledgeable enough to know of what I allude to.

Rather than ponder those people of faith, and the mental deficiency that enables suchÖmysteriousÖbehavior, would it not be more productive to exploit it or plain old ignore it, instead?

If Satanists wrap their heads around the phenomena of ďthe why and whereforeĒ of such sheep, do they not become still and mesmerized like the sheep themselves? Surely it deserves nothing more than a passing glance, with a sneerÖor a fixed predatory stare replete with some lip-smackingÖ

Ponder to gain deeper insight, like a scholar or a hunter, but remember it is a natural division betweenÖahemÖus, and them. Relish it.

Hail Satan.

And yes,HLGwyn

I very much agree that it comes from low self-esteem and bad conditioning. People are very easily controlled when they have been conditioned to have a very poor sense of self. But this is to make them easier to govern-truly free thinkers tend to shake up the status quo, and make changes.

But let's face it,sheep are made for shearing. I don't have to understand one to sell the wool and meat.

Smiles,don't worry about it.

Very Well, as long as I didn't step on any of your toes. Maybe its good, once it a while, to run into someone who thinks the same as you.

Some how it makes it all worth while. Kind of a Sanity Check. No? Or at least an indication that some one understands "some what" on your level.

I'm not the overly sensitive kind Demigod.

"self-control" = personal power.

I prefer to act,rather than simply react.

Just like the "silent movie scene" from Almodovar's "Hable con ella/ Talk to her".

IT'S BEEN DESTROYED, WHAT WILL THEY DO!!! There was an aticle on CNN.com that a guy painted the words "BIG LIE" over the top of the Virgin Vagina. He was arrested for defacing public property, grafitti is a crime but seeing an image on a filthy wall is not. Our prison system would collapse if they made stupidity a crime. The city then came in and painted over the entire thing. Now the minions will search on for a sign from "God" painted on a pile of dog shit or in the x-ray of their empty skulls!

So many people all suffering some pathetic disorder of emptiness, ever so searching for something to fill the void within ... why do they not look within themselves and realize they are their own gods, and they themselves shall be the only ones able to either destroy or fufill their lives ? Stopping under some freeway to view a salt stain ever so lowers already the simple minded masses to a lower level almost to the point of complete obliteration of any coherent intelligence.

I would assume any figure of an omnipotent nature would also be quite ashamed of such a following of simpletons.

Because there is nothing inside themselves for them to find, just that void they constantly try to fill.

Grins, have you ever seen "Life of Brian", by Monty Python Blacklodgearts? It was considered to be QUITE sacreligious.

There's a really funny scene about "followers" in there.

Same same as the fools in these pictures.

It's well worth seeing if you haven't.

Their entire existance relies upon mythical beings. This makes them thirsty for proof that their so-called 'god' and other idotic characters actually exist/ed in some form or way. This leads them to searching for them in places like highway signs, muffins, warts, tumors, and even their own biological waste.
I mean, really... would any of you spend hours staring at an ugly stain behind a highway sign? Of course not. Why? Us Satanists have enough common sense to know that there are better ways to use our time, than seeking behind highway signs and under rocks for 'divine signs'.

I'm sure I've just repeated what many have said already. Still wanted to give my two cents.

Hail Satan!
