A 24-year-old woman from Maryland claims the Savior has appeared on the Nintendo set she bought on eBay.
Brittany Wampler spotted the image of Jesus Christ on top of one of the two newly purchased Nintendo sets she received from an eBbay seller, she told Kotaku, an online publication covering the gaming industry.
"We were inspecting it for cracks/damage and when we turned it just right into the light, the image showed up," she told Kotaku. "Our reaction was mainly curiousity [sic] at first. Then as we looked at it closer and ruled out what it couldn't be, we began to get excited about it."
The image, which Wampler sent to Kotaku at their request, appears to show a blurred human face with long hair and a short beard.
Wampler reportedly dismissed the possibility that the image had to do with a form of supernatural intervention. However, she specified that the design was a part of the plastic covering, not residue. She also assured the publication that she did not create the image, or Photoshop the photo. She said she wasnt sure about the exact origin of the image.
"I was raised religious, but I haven't made up my mind really," she told Kotaku.
When pressured to answer if she believed that the image might be a form of Jesus apparition, she reportedly said that she believes the possibility.
Instances when an image of a divine figure seems to appear somewhere in everyday life tend to evoke a lot of excitement - both among believers and non-believers.
Such cases of "apparitions" touching the mundane life of mortals happen surprisingly often.
CP reported earlier this months that a French photographer caught an image of a divine figure with a halo on his camera when he was climbing in the mountains. In this case, the photographer admitted that, despite the unique, divine feel of the event, he believes the phenomenon could probably be explained scientifically.
In July, a couple from South Carolina reported seeing the face of Jesus Christ on a Walmart receipt.
Other sources have also reported cases in which Jesus face reportedly appeared on objects like a frying pan, tree trunk or a piece of toast.
Yo Cronos - these threads need be encouraged, like teaching patients in the psychotic wards to weave baskets - it’s best posters like this expend their energy in useless activities than in God-knows-what-else they MIGHT be doing....
yes, like burning down churches etc.
Such posters tear down the image of FR and give all of us conservatives a bad name. Makes you wonder if this isn’t a Dimocrat aim?
I have always been of the mind that if Jesus,Mother Mary, or G-d himself actually appeared to anyone most people would I think be pretty quiet about it all not wanting other people to think they were nuts. I know I may tell hubby but other side of that no way.
Have many “dimocrats” in Poland? You SEEM to have a fixation on them and the DU. Do you think there is some kind of conspiracy going on to rid Poland of Catholics? Or FReepers? Or Catholic FReepers? Do you know, a person could go mad, believing there is a conspiracy behind every corner...”They’re out to get me”...famous last words of a nut.
Why don't you take your posts to DU? They would be better suited there.
That’s the second time so far today that you’ve launched into personal attacks, smvoice — making it personal is against forum rules. Dont keep doing that on FR go to DU where that may be allowed.
As you can see above, we’ve hit the problem on the nub or rather the Dim :-)
AH, so you are accusing me of being a dimocrat? Aren’t you attempting to read my mind, and making it personal by ASSUMING you are correct, without actually ASKING?
This thread makes fun of wackos that see “things” unless you are under the impression that there are no Christian wackos.
You should be criticizing them for making Christians looking like insane nuts.
Personal attacks? By asking you questions? Those are QUESTIONS, not statements. And the word SEEM means may be or may not be, not IS or ARE.
Winking Jesus.. Looking good Billy Ray...
And, it is interesting for a 2010 joinee... do I smell the ozone of the Viking Kitties coming with their troll-b-gone swords?
I don’t waste time with trolls.
Oh I would be doing the latter but when someone ONLY posts things that makes Christians look like wackos, that says something, right?
Wail, gnash, accuse, run to Moderator. Wail, gnash, accuse, run to Moderator. Same MO, different day.
