Virgin Mary appears in MRI scan

Post by adamd164 » Wed Dec 10, 2008 11:19 pm

I don't want to laugh at the poor woman's misfortune, but what a complete and utter sham this is!

Maybe she knows full well what she's doing - normal MRI scan, can't afford cancer treatment... I know, I'll leech off fundies!


Link won't seem to work, but if anyone wants to view the auction, it's on eBay item number 250338773378.

Or copy and paste:

Its bizarre to say the least.

Neurologica Blog has a clickable link to view the scan (as well as an article explaining why people come up with these things)

The blogger is Dr Steven Novella (of Skeptics Guide to the Universefame) who is a bona fide clinical neurologist.

PZ Myers, who is always one to keep the tone of such matters serious and philosophical :P points out that
You know, there's another anatomical region on women that looks like that…

So, when is someone going to start selling gynecological photos on eBay? Can we defend explicit porn as religious iconography?

She should be told that it's the Nightmare Life-in-Death from Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner. If that doesn't hang an albatross round her neck, nothing will.
And it might give her a reality check.
Seriously, anyone that would buy this piece of rubbish is on a surreal voyage or some sort of mystic trip.

Ah, Sunworshipper! :)

The Our Lady of Grilled Cheese Toastie fetched $28 000.00

Even though it looks more like Joan Crawford than an alleged Hebrew maiden in Roman-occupied Palestine.
