An anomaly hunter exploring Antarctica on Google Earth stumbled upon a strange shape that he believes is the face of Jesus! The remarkable discovery was made by indefatigable UFO researcher Scott Waring, who was looking for potential evidence of ancient alien activity on the frosty continent. While observing a site which he suspects is some kind of ET structure, the anomaly hunter was stunned to scroll over and see what appears to be a rather distinct visage.
Pointing to what he sees as long hair, a beard, and a crown of thorns, Waring argued that the face is that of Jesus. The anomaly hunter posited that the perceived statue is proof that “the ancient aliens once inhabited Antarctica.” As for how Jesus might fit into that theory, Waring made the fantastic assertion that he was, in fact, “an alien who came to Earth to instill morals and rules to help chaotic early humans rise to enlightenment.”
Much like the many marvelous oddities spotted on the moon and Mars by anomaly hunters, skeptics will undoubtedly say that the ‘face of Jesus’ found in Antarctica is simply a product of pareidolia and not an ancient monument build by extraterrestrials. While they are probably right, one can’t help but note the similarities between the newfound visage and the famed ‘Face on Mars.’

The Face of Jesus Appears in the Oddest Places
Jesus Christ is everywhere during Holy Week, but one Orlando woman thought she was going crazy when she saw his image in the bark of a dead tree in her front yard.
“It’s Treesus,” the homeowner, Kim, said on the eve of Resurrection Sunday. “I find it very odd. For me, it’s unmistakable, and I’m not particularly religious. So I don’t know what it means.”
The Orlando Sentinel agreed to withhold her full name and address because she fears her home would turn into a mecca of pilgrims wanting to see the image.
Here the face of Jesus manifests as a stain on a bathroom wall.
Grilled cheese sandwich, actually this one is the Virgin Mary I think.
There are no photos of Jesus (okay maybe the Shroud of Turin) and nobody painted him. So how did we determine that he looks like the guy on the Kit Kat chocolate bar?
The image seems to materialize in hot places
Why? Why would the Lord and Saviour, King of Kings, put his face on a bloody banana? He might only convert 2 or 3 people with this stunt. He should manifest on a giant billboard in Times Square.
Pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon or the Moon rabbit, and hearing hidden messages on records when played in reverse.
There have been many instances of perceptions of religious imagery and themes, especially the faces of religious figures, in ordinary phenomena. Many involve images of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, the word Allah, or other religious phenomena: in September 2007 in Singapore, for example, a callus on a tree resembled a monkey, leading believers to pay homage to the “Monkey god” (either Sun Wukong or Hanuman) in the monkey tree phenomenon.
Carl Sagan hypothesized that as a survival technique, human beings are “hard-wired” from birth to identify the human face. This allows people to use only minimal details to recognize faces from a distance and in poor visibility but can also lead them to interpret random images or patterns of light and shade as being face.
Oh wow Jesus, this is really going to help people quite smoking.
And then there are people nowadays who will never notice Jesus.
