Somebody gave me this picture about 30 years ago, and I do not know the source. Supposedly it was taken out of an airliner window, but I don't know that for a fact. A rather interesting cloud formation, wouldn't you say? If it was anything more than that, I wouldn't know... Some will say it is Jesus, but for me it kind of reminds me of God the Father...watching carefully over His creation...
Stand back from your computer monitor about 5 feet...it is really visible then...

I don't know, Bud. To me it looks like the image is sticking out its tongue, so it seems a little too irreverent to be God. However, He could be making a general statement about the shape of the world!

Gotta love cloud formations, though!

I couldn't see anything divine looking, I saw a sort of cartoon like ghost figure, but I couldn't see anything especially diety like.

Seeing something in an ambiguous context is called pareidolia. This is the principle of human perception upon which the Rorschach ink test was done. The same thing happens when you see the "face on Mars" or the like.

We've got people looking everywhere for these images, from the crust on a grilled cheese sandwich to discolorations on the windows of office builldings. Human beings look for patterns and that's all that's going on here. I remember that when some conspiracy guy came up with the idea that either the moon landing or mars probe was a fake (I forget which it was) he pointed to a particular rock in one of the photos and said he saw letters which suggested it was just a stage prop. A group of the scientists looked at the same image and every one of them were able to find their own initials somewhere on the same image. It just goes to show that our brains tend to function this way in order to make sense out of our vision, it's nothing more than that.
