Jesus On The Half Shell

In 1972, Joan Reed Carter and a friend were walking along a beach in Fort Lauderdale when they looked down and saw a seashell that looked like Jesus Christ. Her friend didn’t want to take it home because her husband was an atheist, so Joan kept it. Over the years she kept thinking she should make the shell public. “I kept thinking I should do something around Christmastime. But I didn’t,” she said.

About a year ago, a man who identifies himself only as John Smith of Sydney, Australia, turned on a brand new lava lamp and saw a blob form that looked like Mary holding the baby Jesus. “It took my breath away,” he says.

The Afterworld Can Be Your Oyster

While walking near Johnny Mercer’s Pier in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, a man looked down and saw an oyster shell he thought looked like the Virgin Mary. Some say it looks more like Jesus.

Watching From Above

Three weeks ago a client at the One Stop Body Shoppe in Arkansas City, Kansas, was laying on her back doing exercises when she noticed a water stain that looked like Jesus Christ on a ceiling tile above her. Since then, all the ceiling tiles that had been damaged by a leak in the roof have been replaced except that one. “Maybe he’ll be the only tile we won’t replace,” said Dominique Sartin, Body Shoppe staff member. And yes, they’re considering selling it on eBay.
