Did you know that back in the early days is you saw faces in the clouds you were thought to be suffering from psychosis?
Scientists, such as Carl Sagan believe that this phenomenon can be attributed simply to pareidolia – which is a type of illusion or misperception involving vague images or sounds (like seeing Jesus’ face in your toast when you take a bite out of it). Even if you agree with the scientist and don’t think the photo is Christ sending us a sign. What harm is there in believing? Life can be difficult for so many people. Whether it is the struggle of being a refugee or an immigrant, losing one’s job, living with mental illness – there are so many injustices in this world that we could all use some more love and hope. As long as you’re not hurting anyone else by believing (in Jesus for example) then why not believe? As Oprah Winfrey once said, “Believe in something even if it means sacrificing everything.”
