It seems the devil doesn’t just have the best music, God is deficient in lines of communication from the afterlife too.
Various spirits are using social media such as Facebook, and “selfies” on cell-phones to communicate with the living, the creator of the universe apparently favours a more abstract,
low-tech approach. This includes communicating via savoury fruit, as with this egg-plant in Baton Rouge this week:
Interestingly this isn’t the first time that God has allegedly chosen to communicate via eggplant, Felicia Teske of Boothwyn Pennsylvania also found the word of God in her fruit (pictured below) in 2007. Also, if you squint, there appears to be a crude sketch of Penn Gillette above the “o” in God. Or is that just me? This God/Gillette eggplant was later listed on E-Bay for $1000.
Fortunately God isn’t just restricted to signing his name on fruit. The Huffington Post reports today, that God has rather insensitively signed his name in the regrown hair of recovering cancer sufferer, Kristen Kisse of Willow Springs, Maryland. While, I’m grateful to see her recovering and hope that her recovery continues, even though Kristen sees this as comforting, a sign of God’s hand in her recovery, a more cynical person may point out that an omnipotent creator could have prevented the illness initially. What if God is indicating that he put her through this hideous ordeal in the first place?
The most striking thing of the above images is that if this is the work of an omnipotent being, why can’t he get the whole way through his title without going “a bit wrong” on the “D”? Also why is he still just writing his name in and on things like an unimaginative. twelve-year-old, graffitist.
The easy answer would be that the above images, and other instances of simulacrum, are just the phenomena of pareidolia. Eggplant seeds are sometimes distributed in a way that resembles letters, curly hair often grows in a way that resembles curved letters.
I wonder how many actually take these things seriously. Do they actually believe that the being they worship has gone from writing books to mucking about with the innards of fruit, the tops of toast and other food stuffs?
It would perhaps be more significant if the word “God” was never formed from random patterns.
