'Hand of God' rock being sold on eBay - CNN.com(CNN) -- A man in northern Idaho says he has seen a massive hand of God in his life, and he is willing to share it with the highest bidder.
Paul Grayhek, 52, listed the rock formation he dubbed the "Hand of God Rock Wall" on the online auction Web site eBay. The highest bid was $250 early Sunday, with three days left to go in the auction.
The hand-like formation, approximately 9 feet tall and 4 feet wide, appeared in Grayhek's backyard after a rockfall during Lent on March 8, he said.
The Coeur d'Alene resident said he faced tough times after losing his job, and believed the rock was a sign.
"I prayed between licking my wounds and looking for a job," he said. "We rarely get rockfalls and this formation is 20 feet from my house. It's definitely a symbol of the hand of God in my life."
However, the winning bidder on eBay should not start clearing out his backyard. Grayhek is not planning to part with the formation.
The buyer will "basically be buying the rights, complete and exclusive rights" to the rock, including literary and movie rights, according to Grayhek.
Like the title suggests, it's stuff like this that give religious people a bad name and I honestly feel for them when crap like this hits the news. Seriously, movie rights? Who the hell would care about a movie about some jobless guy who is cracked enough to think god is talking to him through rocks?
Not to mention, anyone else noticed the second thumb? I don't know if this guy either skipped anatomy class or if he just hasn't looked at his own hands in a while, but there are usually five fingers.
