Jesus Gel

Yesterday someone on our floor announced “I see Jesus!”


Then we saw his image on the left side of a silver-stained polyacrylamide gel:


Upon closer inspection it looked like his face was partially obscured by some proteins.


We could kinda make out a nose, a mouth and a beard. But where are his eyes? Curse that IgG! And … Jesus is brown! (I never knew.) To help those, who like “seeing Thomas” need some extra help, we then photoshoped … I mean enhanced the picture:


So is this a blessed pulldown? Or is this a vengeful Jesus trying to warn us latte drinking, public transportation taking, evolution believing, Cell Biologists at Harvard Medical School that the end days are near?

    Well, to me, it says Jesus looks like a sh*t stain in a public bathroom, but maybe that’s just me!

    That’s an eskimo!

    Maybe it’s the Inuit version of the Virgin of Guadalupe?

    The words of William Dembski to haunt you:

    “…any view of the sciences that leaves Christ out of the picture must be seen as fundamentally deficient.”

    Quick, Sequence the gel, and we could figure out who the father was.

    This is truly funny;i’m sorry to say that.But excuse me, are trying to say that Jesus with his foreknowledge would have allowed this kind of confusions to happen. Remember GOD is not a GOD of confusion but of Order.

    It does not matter if it is or is not an authentic image of Jesus Christ. What matters is that some may believe and some may not…… some may change their lives for the better based on their belief of this image – and some may not. People need to calm down and take a step back…. why get so upset over the believers????? They are probably living a better life than you are just based on their belief!!! Think about it and tell yourself …as “THE ROCK” so well put it ” IT DOESNT MATTER “. Let those who believe, believe…. let those who dont…., dont.

    March 13, 2008

    Sorry lads, but I don’t see anything (beyond that I may be missing a joke). Did it occur to anyone that it may be just a blob? There’s nothing there.

    its okay Christians… unlike those other false gods that these scientists fail to bash, our God, Jesus does not need to be defended. he could do it on his own, let them say and SEE what they want to. Jesus said that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is lord… and by the way u latte drinking, public transportation taking, evolution believing, Cell Biologists at Harvard Medical School, Darwin does not make sense. if the fishes came onto the land and developed into another creature and so forth why isn’t it still happening? how come fishes cannot breathe out of water anymore? and if we came from monkeys why aren’t we developing into anything else?
