Jesus on a tortilla?

(CNN)– A New Mexico man's dinner was downright divine after he discovered an image of Jesus on his tortilla.  CNN's Anderson Cooper reports.

We are adding the tortilla guy to our running list of people have claimed to see the image of Jesus Christ in all sorts of unconventional places, from telephone poles, to store receipts to a cheesy snack.

Last year a plucky entrepreneur even came up with a do-it-yourself version of divine food visions with the Jesus toaster.

Watch Anderson Cooper 360° weeknights 8pm ET. For the latest from AC360° click here.

      ~The statistical studies from the nineteenth century and the three CCU studies on prayer are quite consistent with the fact that humanity is wasting a huge amount of time on a procedure that simply doesn’t work. Nonetheless, faith in prayer is so pervasive and deeply rooted, you can be sure believers will continue to devise future studies in a desperate effort to confirm their beliefs!~~...

    There will be more and more of these signs appearing as the year progresses. This because the Christ has already returned last year. He is still incognito, acting as an ordinary person without declaring himself. You just need to recognize him for yourself. This may not be that easy, since he will appear as an ordinary man until most people acknowledge him. The way to recognize him is thru his words or the message that he brings – the message of peace, brotherhood and justice. (Also, It will definitely not be the end of the world).

    i had a friend who saw angles everywhere. She took pictures of all of them and hung them all over her bedroom. My favorite was the collection of ten or so of them in the hair clogged in the drain of her shower. Needless to say she is now a nun somewhere and her Mother Superior does not let her have any contact with the people she used to know.

      I see angles too. Right angles, acute angles, reflex angles, and even obtuse ones. :-)

    That's not Jesus. It's the Zig Zag Man.

    JC's family and friends had it right 2000 years ago ( Mark 3: 21 "And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.")

    Said passage is one of the few judged to be authentic by most contemporary NT scholars. e.g. See Professor Ludemann's conclusion in his book, Jesus After 2000 Years, p. 24 and p. 694.

    Actually, Jesus was a bit "touched". After all he thought he spoke to Satan, thought he changed water into wine, thought he raised Lazarus from the dead etc. In today's world, said Jesus would be declared legally insane.

    Or did P, M, M, L and J simply make him into a first century magic-man via their epistles and gospels of semi-fiction? Most contemporary NT experts after thorough analyses of all the scriptures go with the latter magic-man conclusion with J's gospel being mostly fiction.

    Obviously, today's followers of Paul et al's "magic-man" are also a bit on the odd side believing in all the Christian mumbo jumbo about bodies resurrecting, and exorcisms, and miracles, and "magic-man atonement, and infallible, old, European/Utah white men, and 24/7 body/blood sacrifices followed by consumption of said sacrifices. Yummy!!!!

    So why do we really care what a first century CE, illiterate, long-dead, preacher/magic man would do or say or look like?

      Which bible? There seem to be a lot of versions, so how come a god supposed to be perfect couldn't get a publication right first time and why all the differences?

    I hope one of the atheists here buys a really expensive dinner and it has a picture of Jesus on it. Then they order wine too.

      They guy I make cook for me is called Haysous.

      Does that count?

      Yeah J.W, That would show them. A nice dinner and wine, with a bit of comedy thrown in as they laugh at the creme brulee Jesus. That would really hit them where they live.

      Studies referenced have sadly been long since proven false. For wholesome, honest studies, study God in prayer.

      @Just Spewing,

      So you are saying that to prove that prayer works you need to pray about it? Do you ever make any sense?

      Superst.ition, catholicism – it's a very gray area. Then again, I heard Sammy Davis Jr. thank Jesus once.

    • Oh Yeah

      Why limit the superst.ition label to just the Catholics? Plenty of evangelicals believe that God is gonna punish America for abortion and gay rights, and that's just another superst.ition, right?
