Jesus on toast

'It's normal to see Jesus on your TOAST': Humans are hardwired to see famous faces on everyday objects, claims study 

Seeing faces in inanimate objects and patterns is known as face pareidolia
The phenomenon is common, but little is known about why it happens
Researchers analysed brain responses to seeing faces in patterns
Response originates in the frontal cortex and travels to the visual cortex
Findings suggest humans have evolved to recognise facial shapes due to their importance in social interactions
