Exposed wood bears likeness to Mother Theresa

I always get a kick out of the apparitions of Jesus. Since they look (something) like late medieval and early Renaissance paintings of Jesus, they could not possibly look anything like Jesus. Jesus of Nazareth was a Jewish man who lived in the Middle East during the reigns of the early Caesars. He almost certainly had short black hair, swarthy sun-darkened skin, and dark eyes. He was probably tiny by modern standards.

This is what scholars think he might have looked like:

When THIS guy starts appearing on pancakes, then I might start taking these claims seriously. (But if he did, none of his followers would recognize him anyway!)
