A baby born in India with two faces is being worshipped as the reincarnation of a Hindu goddess.

One month old Lali suffers from an extremely rare condition known as cranofacial duplication where a single head has two faces.

Locals are hailing Lali as the return of the goddess Durga, traditionally depicted with three faces and many arms.

Same. It might have been twins at one point. Still, a deformed baby is not a re-carnation of a god. It certainly shouldn't be paraded around like some freak.

:rofl:
Yeah - boy am I glad you guys clued us in - I was really kind of freaked out at first.

Also - though for real -- I don't see her as "deformed" - she looks really pretty to me in the picture - so what if x2?

I wonder how everything works for her - does everything meet properly at the right place so she can just be 2 faced? What if she can make 2 faces - control them independently - so she can smile with one side of her face and roll her eyes with the other -- that would be SOOOO freaking cool for her!

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Do you think both sets of eyes work??? That would be really disorienting!

But then, she really would have eyes in the back of her head. ;)

"He has no ego," says Lou Lamoriello, general manager of the New Jersey Devils. "I don't think he has a selfish bone in his body. It gets infectious with people around him, but that's Joe. Having him here was something very special."
------------------------------------------------------------------------
And the simple truth is this -- before and after Joe Nieuwendyk, this franchise has not been as good. Yes the same could be said for others, but Nieuwendyk's effect on his team, on his team's best players, on the fans and in the community can only be compared to, well, what Jarome Iginla is doing now in Calgary.

I don't even know if it would be disorienting if all eyes worked. Since they will have worked since birth that's just how her brain will learn how to see, just like our brains learn how to see with 2 eyes. She'll end up comfortably having like 280 degress of vision. That would rock on the sports field.

Or how people use it to give themselves permission to invade this interesting person's life, someone who they really have no business or right to intrude upon at all. It's all about control - common sense or lack thereof has nothing to do with it.

You would feel dumb if it turns out she really is a re-incarnation of some goddess and came back to smote you. I'm not saying I believe it, but don't piss in people' cheerio's because you don't.

Thats pretty interesting, i wonder if the two mouths go to the same esophagus, or if there are two. Also would be weird, if she had two voice boxes, although thats doubtful.

I have no problem getting that award if its a reflection of someone who thinks it's intolerable for people to mock other religions because they feel their own is superior. There is no less reason to believe this girl is a re-incarnate of some old goddess then to believe in ghosts, or aliens or *gasp* even god.

But hey, I guess you were really funny there, amirite?

My parents/family are Hindu and would have laughed at the notion this was a reincarnation too.

If you are implying they think it is ok to mock religions or beliefs not of their own, I'm glad they are as disrespectful as others in this thread. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

Maybe that was a little vague, when i said "beliefs not of their own" I was referring to the specific belief that she was a reincarnate, not all hindu beliefs. The sentiment I take issue with what df26 said, that people who believe this have no common sense; who are you, your parents / family / anyone in this thread to judge what is and isn't common sense when it comes to religion?

If thats not what your parents / family are doing, and I fully doubt that they would but I don't really know them, then I don't know why you brought them up to begin with.
