Quote# 36016

Palestinians have been flocking to see a lamb which seems to have a birthmark spelling out the Arabic word for God, "Allah", in its coat.

Owner Yahya Atrash, from the West Bank town of Hebron, told Reuters the animal was born on Monday, when militant leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin was killed.

He told Reuters the timing was "clear evidence of God's existence"

Because the existence of God predicts that sheep will be born with birthmarks vaguely resembling his name when religious leaders die.

And here I thought the piece of toast that looked like Jesus was the "proof".

Fundie fun with pareidolia...how fucking lame.

If ANY god's best effort at proving his existence is by birthmarks in sheep, we have nothing to worry about by not believing. What happened to all the burning bushes and magical stone tablets? Don't tell me his batteries are running down !

And clearly this tree is evidence of Jesus.

I imagine people will celebrate in the traditional manner; heated arguments over miniscule differences in interpretation against a general background of violence in the streets.

Well, that's good for the lamb.

squiggle therefore god?

And he has vaguely to write his name in a sheep to let a bunch of people, most of them illiterate, that he exists. FUNNY!!

I thought this silliness was uniquely American, with idiots flocking to shrines made out of a fallen tree branch that looks like Jesus' face, or the frost pattern on a window that was supposed to look like the Virgin Mary. MAD magazine was right:"Barnum was all wet. There are hundreds of suckers born every minute!"

Uhhhhhhhhhh yeah.. and the potato chip that I ate earlier, shaped like the Hogwarts Express proves that Harry Potter exists.

Oh almighty Harry, we ask that you grant us the wisdom to see through the false prophets and their attempt to misguide us with farm animals.

Yanno, I don't think any Higher Power would resort to playing "Where's Waldo?"

Behold the power of God! Displease him only at the risk of having your Alpha-bits spell out a disapproving message, or your toast picturing a frowning god!

Fear the power of god!

You've got the lamb, we've got the toast.

Nowadays? People have always fallen for shit like this in droves; the only difference is that today, any given instance spreads further because of mass communication.

I must say Allah's handwriting leaves a lot to be desired.

(Also, it's hardly a birthmark, it's merely a manifestation of a white spotting pattern).

"Palestinians have been flocking to see a lamb which seems to have a birthmark spelling out the Arabic word for God, "Allah", in its coat."

Wasn't there a fish like that a while back?

That was my first thought too. Actually, my first thought was fraud since I'm well aware of the human propensity for duping one another. My second thought was that it's equally as likely that you're experiencing apophenia or, more specifically, pareidolia.

Jesus delicious when roasted with garlic and rosemary, or BBQ'd with cajun spices, or a kalamata olive tapenade.
