See The Lord!
If you feel deprived because you've never had a vision of Jesus, here's your chance to see him float before your eyes. Just look at the image below and follow these instructions (via somareview).

1. Relax and concentrate on the four small dots in the middle of the image for roughly 30 or 40 seconds.
2. Then, stare at a blank wall near you (any smooth, single-colored surface will do).
3. You will see a circle of light developing—the onset of a holy vision.
4. Blink your eyes a few times as the figure begins to emerge.
5. What do you see? Or rather, who do you see?... Congratulations. You just had a religious sighting!

Once you've had your fun with that, consider this link (getbehindjesus.net) sent in by Phred who writes: "I suspect this was done with Photoshop and that its perpetrators firmly have their tongue in cheek but, see for yourself." I also think "get behind Jesus" was more than slightly enhanced by Photoshop (the superimposed image of Jesus helps to clarify the miracle). The link may not be safe for work (if a picture of a dog's posterior would offend your boss) or for people whose religious sensibilities would be easily offended.

Oh, man, it works!

I can never see those "Magic Eye" images, but this time I really saw an image of a face in front of my eyes!

Pretty cool.

I'm not sure whther it was Jesus or the Zig Zag man, though.

Looks more like Count Rugen from the Princess Bride to me...

Either Count Rugen or any Musketeers-era Frenchman.

It's my long-lost brother, Paul. Hey, where are you, dude?

I didn't know that Jesus had a moustache like my Rodeo running uncle...

OMG MY UNCLE IS JESUS!
Jesus lives in the deep south.

I'm gonna agree with Merve on this...I've been seeing this for years...and not just the internet. Most likely before photoshop was around.

Um, guys, the bit about Photoshop was talking about the getbehindjesus.net pic, not the B&W thing up there.
