There was an hilarious case a few years back in Australia where a shadow cast by a fence post near a beach fell in such a way that, from a distance, it was said to resemble a praying virgin Mary. Somehow this shadow was able to communicate the reason for its appearance - it had come to warn the world that humanity was veering dangerously off track and urgently needed to rediscover the message of jesus.
Needless to say, hoardes of worshippers flocked from all over Oz to witness this apparation and pray for the future of the world. The news media covered it, mainly as a joke, but you got to see what all the fuss was about - s shadow, seen from about 100 meters that could be interpreted to look like a religious statue. They interviewed the devout worshippers, filled with the joy of god, who were certain that this was a sign sent from heaven that we must change our ways.
They interviewed one surfer dude and asked him if he believed. His answer ‘Nah, mate. It’s just a bloody fence post. I just came to see all these crazies, now I’m off surfing…’
It takes all types.
