Phil Plaits Bad Astronomy: Misconceptions: Pareidolia

And for those gullible types who actually subscribe to the “Jesus in the tortilla” phenomena, a reminder: “So the next time you hear of someone seeing the face of God in a turnip, or a ghost in a picture, or perhaps even a hill on Mars shaped like a face… well, then maybe you’ll know better. Before you wonder if it’s Jesus or Mary paying you a visit, remember, sometimes it’s not really Lenin in the shower. It’s just dirty bath water.”
