The architect who designed the Christian Science Society of Dixon, Ill., certainly has a raw sense of humor. The church’s congregation was shocked to discover that their sanctuary looks like an erect phallic symbol when viewed from the Heavens.
From The NY Daily News:
This Illinois church may want to rethink its motto of “Rising Up.”
That’s because the Christian Science Society’s building — in the appropriately-named town of Dixon — looks like a giant phallus from space.
From street-level, there appears to be nothing comical about the edifice.
But a God’s eye view transforms the erection into a dead ringer for an enormous member. Eagle-eyed Redditors using Google Earth first spotted the likeness earlier this week.
Images of the swollen-headed sanctuary have since gone viral.
The congregation of the church, a 90-minute drive from Chicago, has yet to comment on the unexpected discovery, reports Chicagoist.com.
But some have suggested its design could be down to a rogue architect who never imagined his masterpiece would one day be clearly seen from above.
