Google Earth reveals Son of God in Hungarian fieldby Stevie Smith - Jul 5 2010, 13:16

Whether the focus is on a statue of The Virgin Mary weeping blood, or on a misshapen cinnamon bun with the face of Mother Teresa, such religious ‘events’ almost always draw a crowd of eager rubberneckers.
Bearing that in mind, may we turn your collective attention to Google Earth for the latest ‘unexplained’ spectacle that’s bound to wow willing believers.
The above image of Jesus was first spotted by 26-year-old sales assistant Zach Evans of Southampton, England, who apparently discovered Christ’s unmistakable likeness while using Google Earth to assess potential vacation spots.
“I’m not a religious person looking for images of Mary or Jesus in everything, but this is obvious,” Mr. Evans told The Sun newspaper regarding the (somewhat unconvincing) image sprawled across a piece of nondescript farmland in Hungary.
Earlier this year, 22-year-old bank worker Tony Elles from Manchester, England, cheated death in a freak frying pan fire only to find the face of Jesus clearly burned into the cooking fat within the charred pan. Spooky.
On a separate note – and call us shallow – but surely there are better places to peruse than dull Hungarian fields when it comes to choosing a worthwhile holiday destination.
