'Jesus Appeared on My Nintendo,' Maryland Woman Claims
Christian Post ^ | September 28, 2011 | Luiza Oleszczuk

Posted on 10/03/2011 7:37:47 AM PDT by Alex Murphy

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 wasn’t 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.

How does she knows what he looks like? Even if you accept the Shroud of Turin, who’s to say he would come back with the same appearance. The disciples did not recognize him on the road so how is someone who’s never seen him going to know?

I think He prefers both. The 8-bit system must be the "Old Testament" of gaming systems.

How does she know that’s what Jesus looked like? It’s just as likely to be the Zig-Zag guy.

Well, that proves it's Christ right there. He's the only one who's ever had long hair and a beard.
(My guess is someone put a magazine or something on the top, and the ink stained the Nintendo plastic.)

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.

Nah, we have a few dimocrats here on FR as your posts indicate.

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. Don’t keep doing that on FR — go to DU where that may be allowed.

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.

As I said -- why would one consistently have threads that say that Christians are wackos? like the ones below

'Jesus Appeared on My Nintendo,' Maryland Woman Claims

Bethesda woman sees Jesus in a garden shovel

Second appearance for the Virgin Mary at Harlingen dry cleaner? [in the wrinkles of a shirt!]

Image of Jesus appears in Ponderosa

Image of Jesus Appears at Church [Following ceiling work at Fairmont’s First Presbyterian]

Jesus Christ appears on rocking chair

Face of Jesus appears on log

Face of Jesus appears on tea towel

Jesus Statue Set Ablaze in Minn.

Surprise as ‘face of Jesus’ appears in Bristol barbecue plot

Once or twice is ok, but consistently? hoaxes like the TV Evangelists Unite to Beam Gospel to the Stars posted to poke fun at us Christians?

The above is not "making it personal" because (a) it is stated as a question and (b) it is arm's length claiming that paranoid people are nuts. It does not say that you are a nut or a paranoid person.
