Needing miracles - the "Virgin Mary Sandwich" ::

Western culture is wonder deprived. The world, and our place in it, is described and explained by an all-encompassing totalitarian belief system of scientific materialism. As a result we can no longer see the wonder in a rat running in the sunlight to jump for a low tree branch, or in the slow ballet of the clouds.

So, we need miracles. Any miracle, it seems, will do. Even a mouldy old cheese sandwich! Yes, folks it's for sale on eBay again. Diana Duyser, 52 (a jewelry designer), says she
took a bite after making it 10 years ago and saw a face staring back at her from the bread. She put the sandwich in a clear plastic box with cotton balls and kept it on her night stand.
According to the CNN report on this miraculous sandwich, it is worth more than $16,000 but bidding ends on Monday so be in quick!

Tackier than Michael Homan's touchdown Jesus? But still showing that while: what we see may be all we get - it is not enough!
