Image of Jesus in Clouds

This cloud to me looks like the face of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Virgin Mary' appears for the faithful: Astonishing moment cloud 'resembling mother of Jesus' floats over Venezuelans taking part in Divine Mercy pilgrimage

  • The cloud was seen by people during the pilgrimage of Divine Mercy on Sunday
  • It floated above Maracaibo, in the north-western Venezuelan state of Zulia
  • People said it  resembled the Virgin Mary, while others suggested it was God 
  • Some people on social media said it was simply a cloud with no symbolism

prime example of pareidolia and its connection to religious images is the Shroud of Turin, a cloth bearing the image of a man — which some believe to be Jesus — who appears to have suffered trauma consistent with crucifixion. The negative image was first observed in 1898, on the reverse photographic plate of amateur photographer Secondo Pia, who was allowed to photograph it while it was being exhibited in the Turin Cathedral.

Are there no editors at this magazine? In the three short paragraphs just above the paragraph I just quoted, Zimmermann very correctly and very clearly defined pareidolia as follows:

imageThe psychological phenomenon that causes some people to see or hear a vague or random image or sound as something significant is known as pareidolia
