Ok, now the Virgin Mary has chosen to show herself in a tree. Really? What in the world is wrong with people? Why are people so desperate to find one little shred of evidence of their faith, they see the Virgin Mary everywhere? She has been seen in a Walmart receipt, toast, pizza, wow, she gets around. I just don't get it.

I cannot judge them about their belief but it's a kind of deception. We know that if the Son of Man will come on Earth. He'll be a thief at night, no one notices it only those who have in faith. When the son of God will come on earth. He'll appear above the clouds and everyone know who he is.... Your faith and heart dictates you about the truth. Someday those people who desperately seeking for that would be granted very soon. And if the time has come....We all be judge accordingly.

Ha ha you're forgetting that those above the clouds are below us as well. No one ever seems to mention that. There is no heavens above alone. There are heavens all around and below.

I'd love to know why it's always Mary too. I mean, can't it ever just be a woman? No, its always the virgin Mary. Who says? Does she sign her name with her appearances? I just don't get it either.

It's a mystery to me, I didn't see anything in those pictures, just a tree.

People see what they wanna see. People give meanings to things in relation to their beliefs. This may be absurd and illogical but people do believe on these things. How do you explain this?

In religion context, it is not appropriate to put the image of Virgin Mary to tangible things, especially if it is used for business. It is an insult to some believers of Virgin Mary.

I don't think that it is a divine sighting when people believe that they see the image of the virgin Mary in inanimate objects. Instead, I think that people are looking for some kind of a sign in their life and when they see these images, they believe that something special has happened in their life. Though I am a faithful person, I'm never going to be one of those people that will worship inanimate objects because I think that there has been an apparition in that object.

And why do some people have to question other peoples faith just because their own is not as strong? Why can't we just let other people do what they wanted to do as long as they're not breaking any laws. It's not just about Virgin Mary image in a tree, it's many other things. But i wonder why people who has no belief suddenly cared to to bother about other people believe. If it's on a pizza, so be it.

Good question.....I don't understand it either.....it's like looking at clouds and seeing different shapes there. Everyone sees something different....its very strange!

Maybe because they're second guessing their religion or themselves? I have no real answer to this, other than they want proof all the time, so they'll take anything serious. I remember seeing stuff like this sell on Ebay for some really ridiculous prices. Scammers are everywhere and people still believe it all. What a crazy world we live in.

No harm, no foul. I see it as a positive thing for one to seek confirmation of one's faith, religious or not. If it takes some sort of physical manifestation to keep one in their faith zone, so be it. Hope truly floats; and as long as it isn't hurting anyone, what's the harm? Positivity is a good thing.

and her son in a grilled cheese! you know i was just asking myself why in law we are innocent until proven guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt. and in religion god is real until proven unreal beyond anyones doubt, a double standard we inflict on ourselves. people having faith doesnt bother me until they tell me im wrong on my beliefs, like if they shoved this tree down my throat haha.
