OK, i know i'm a bit late to this thread, but....
A finger??? Are you people serious? That is one of the single dumbest things i have ever read.
This SHOULD be common knowledge, but some of you apparently need a refresher course:
Our brains have evolved in such a way as to constantly search for patterns. It was a survival mechanism, a way to make sense of the world and filter
the overwhelming amount of information with which we are perpetually inundated. If we didn't filter this information, if we didn't project patterns
onto chaotic things, we would not survive.
As such, our brains are wired to detect patterns even when one is not actually present. Our brains have SPECIFICALLY EVOLVED to project these patterns
and familiar images onto an otherwise chaotic world. It's why we can, say, look at craters on the moon and see a face, or look at clouds and see an
animal, etc etc etc.
Want another example? We can look at a picture of completely normal rocks and debris and see FINGERS and FACES. It does not mean they are actually
there. Sometimes inanimate objects have a resemblance to other things! Amazing, huh? Sometimes our brain projects familiar images onto random objects,
like it has specifically freaking evolved to do!!! I mean, holy hell, this is extremely basic stuff. What the hell is wrong with you guys????
I am completly and utterly mind-boggled that any sane person would entertain the thought that there may actually be a finger in that photo for even a
