This was being sold on eBay but it has since been taken down.


That’s apparently the “Hand of God“:

Paul Grayhek, 52, listed the rock formation he dubbed the “Hand of God Rock Wall” on the online auction Web site eBay. The highest bid was $250 early Sunday, with three days left to go in the auction.

The hand-like formation, approximately 9 feet tall and 4 feet wide, appeared in Grayhek’s backyard after a rockfall during Lent on March 8, he said.

The buyer will “basically be buying the rights, complete and exclusive rights” to the rock, including literary and movie rights, according to Grayhek.

You have to be pretty desperate to see anything in the rock formation.

It does raise a question I always have when I see this sort of thing: Does the person seeing the pareidolia actually believe it’s a sign from God? Or are they just saying it to dupe the gullible?

I have the same question for “professional psychics.” How many of them know what they’re doing is a scam and how many of them believe they have some mystical powers?
