Jesus Christ, Astronaut

A beautiful moonlit night over India is shattered by the screams of a random group of people. They saw it. It was right there in front of everyone. Mary and the baby Jesus were on the moon! How in the hell did they get up there? They must be astronauts!
Reports of sightings of the image of Mother Mary and infant Jesus on the moon on Thursday and Friday in Mumbai, Goa and Bihar has fuelled fears about an impending apocalypse.

While priests asked people not to take the issue seriously, the news set off stories about the end of the world. Many saw the images as a message to prepare for doomsday.
Well, I am glad no one overreacted and jumped to some crazy conclusions. I guess appearing on the moon is a step up from a tortilla chip and a slice of bread. To appear on the moon MUST mean the end is nigh. It does make me wonder though: why did Jesus appear in his infantile form? Why was Mary there?

Of course, this could all just have been hysteria and pareidolia.
