    She`s awesome. There`d be more like her if people weren`t held back by old concepts and ideas. She was nurtured instead of restrained by the ideas of `norms`.

    I can`t wait to hear more about her in a couple years.

    *snort* You`d think that if God were sending someone visions of Jesus, that the visions would look like, oh I dunno, A HEBREW, rather than a 20-something year-old white guy.

    This is what Jesus would most likely have looked like, as would any Hebrew:

    It`s hardly "amazing" or "impressive". It`s just historically-inaccurate crap coming from someone with delusions and mental illness. Big deal.

    Getting your nuts in a rut over someone elses view of someone that may or may not have lived thousands of years ago isn`t called being smart. Its called being a douche.

    I saw Jesus once, he looked like 50-cent. And god came to me in the guise of Sean Connery. Thems good people.

    "...faith is the most important thing in the world, without fate you can not communicate with god..."
    Why is it that you can talk to god but if someone says his is talking with other voices he hears in his head the person is considered psychotic????

    She has an amazing talent but I hate it when they contribute it to god.....thank your parents, you jehova wannabe !!!

    To her, this is what god and heaven look like, the most beautiful things she`s capable of imagining. I don`t really care at all what she believes, I`m just amazed at her ability and courage to express it.
    And don`t blame the parents. They`re friggin aetheists. This is definitely all coming from the girl herself. She`s a genius and she happens to believe in things that most people see as simple and unoriginal, yet she can clearly express herself in a completely original way. I hope as she becomes older she`ll prove herself to be one of the greatest artists to have lived.

    So she is an idiot savant with a slight mental disorder. Not unusual for someone with her range of skill. I met a boy in college who was 14 years old. He was deprived of oxygen when in the womb and thus became a genius of sorts. He still had to have someone help him in the bathroom and he spoke of crazy things like God and the future. He claimed he knew "heaven" and what the "future" looked like. He tried to show us all what he saw with his off the wall mathmatic equations.

    I`m not denying the art is impressive. But to claim that images of Christ that portray him as looking like an Englishman, or images of Heaven that looks exactly like Earth are divinely inspired is insane.

    If she claimed that her cat was talking to her and gave her the power to paint the pictures, wouldn`t people be saying she was insane? Why is it somehow different when it`s `God` doing the talking?

    God, in this sense anyways, is the omnipotent creator of all things. Thats what makes it more impressive than conversing with a cat.

    2.Why do you assume that ALL Jews have big noses, large watery eyes, and thick lips? It`s just like how all Americans are considered stupid. There are many different kinds of Jewish people, even black ones. And there are both American idiots and geniuses and everything in between. Stereotypes suck.

    ear each time in a different form, not always as a "comical" stereotypical Jew.

    4.Just because you`re jealous of the talent that girl has, doesn`t mean she is mentally ill and delusional. It means you`re a pathetic loser who asserts his superiority above others with skills he doesn`t have by degrading them. It`s like when second-graders insult each other and call each other "retards" out of jealousy, just you used a fancier word.

    The picture that was used was reconstructed from the skull of a 1st Century Palestinian Jew. Nothing more. That`s not to say that that was what Jesus looked was like, it doesn`t even prove that that is what all 1st Century Palestinian Jews looked like. It`s simply an anthropological excercise, nothing more. Chill out. As for the girl... very talented.

    She`s an amazingly artistic person. :) I hope she gets better.

    Her religious ideals are a little odd, though. That`s probably because, like they said in the video, faith was never actually discussed in their home.

    Did anyone else notice she seemed really spaced out and distant?

    I`m not a religous man...but why wouldn;t God visit her, looking like what SHE would expect god to look like? If I were black and god came to me, wouldn`t he come to me looking like a black man? We are all created in god`s image according to catholicism, so if I was say Asian, wouldn`t god look asian? Remember, she said her paintings were of God, not Jesus. And god had no coporeal form, he is a being. IF God came to me, I`d expect him to be white, cuz I am white and was raised that he is also white as far as icons go. That`s just my take on 12 years of catholic school talking. I don`t really believe in god, I`d probably be more of a Deist. Meaning God made the world but lets it unfold on its own, not affecting any aspect of it. He`s there, but he`s just observing. But yea. We all KNOW Jesus would look middle eastern, not gonna stop us from seeing him as our own race in visions. If God came to me I`d want him to look like my race too, easier to associate with him.

    Her paintings are quite impressive, but I find it alarming that no one around her seems to be questioning the cause of her visions. All sorts of brain disorders can cause visions, including epilepsy and schizophrenia: her mother is apparently ignoring those possibilites, instead attributing them to divine inspiration (fitting in a religious conversion along the way). That`s dangerous and irresponsible--although it`s also true that treating the visions would probably also remove much of the girl`s exceptional talent.

    I wouldn`t exactly call the painting that of a "white" man. I have seen Afghanis, Persians, Arabs, and yes Jews, who look similar to the painting. Sure, it`s not the "typical" image of a middle easterner, but the painting may be well be meant to combine the features of many races.
    And like one poster stated, "it`s her version". That is what one could expect when God visits them in a dream. I`m sure God doesn`t "look" like any one of us.
    Nice painting young lady, keep up the inspiration. God Bless

    who cares about her painting God and it not being accurate blah blah the thing is, she paints fantastic and let`s see all the whining bitches try and paint stuff like that with the same amount of talent.

    and i agree with what snufkin said. she may have some type of disorder or something that causes her to have that much talent... they should check her out.

    I`ve seen quite a few people saying this link is old, and she must be 18 or so by now... Look her up, if you must. She was born on July 9, 1994. Her name is spelled Akiane Kramarik. I`m sure there is a Wikipedia entry about her, but as I always say, I won`t trust Wikipedia. Just look it up. I am an atheist, but I admit, this girl is absolutely inspiring. I can`t say whether or not she is spiritually gifted or not. I can`t say whether or not God or Jesus ever existed. I also won`t be like most of the people who`s comments I have read here and try to claim I do and that she must be retarded. I just don`t believe.

    Depending on how it is used, religion can be a good thing. Like threatening kids with being good, or no Santa Claus, eh?

    I`ll stop.

You can hear it most with the first thing she says. "*sigh* This painting is called Father Forgiven..." - But she sounds like that the whole time.

    She`s good only when you consider that she is 12. Her technique is above average, but paintings of horses and flowers surrounded in unrealistic light and green pastures would hardly be considered good art by any standard that mattered. Some of her figures are actually pretty terrible.

    This is ancient!! She was on...wait for it...Oprah before...but of course!! She is obviously incrediably talented but I find her faith a little bit freaky! She talked in an almost creapy serene way! Good luck to her but Im always wary of extremes in faith on either end of the spectrum. You can be spiritual without equating everything to a organised religious perspective....Ive read alot about her through her website. She writes poetry as well. The best thing about this clip was that I now know how to pronounce her name...its pretty!

    ...when did being a small minded, ill informed and arrogant `athiest` prick suddenly become cool? and how many of you people who dont believe in a divine supernatural being believe in ghosts...or bad and good luck...or telepathy...or intuition...or karma...or fate or destiny...or horoscopes or a million and other things that arent logical or scientifically proven? we all have belief systems and sets of rules and world views and rituals that are illogical and are forms of personal `religions` in them selves; we join them every day...every time we make a choice. I cannot stand it when smug little idiots decide that being a so called `Atheist` somehow entitles them to claim the high ground when often, if you dig a little deeper you discover they are so lazy-minded and stupidly complacent that if they ever DID find them selves on the high ground their dizzy little heads would overwhelm them so completely that the the natural order of things would be restored pretty satisfyingly sharpish.

    Awesome work by this girl, she is very talented. I think its crazy how people quickly look past this fact and argue about how she portrays God, key word being portray. If God created everything, then that means He created our definitions of the world around us too. Its very funny to think that people would actually contest that God looks a certain way, when in reality, no comparison in this universe could possible describe what God looks like. Keep in mind, the idea of anything even possessing a look or image is a definition or `concept` originally defined by God. You could illustrate this idea with the relationship between a normal computer and a person. If a computer, created by people, attempted to describe what a person looked like, it might spit out a few thousand or million lines of code. As a human, we would laugh at the pathetic comparison, but would also understand that we didn`t create the computer to understand that. Religious? Yes, but its only my perspective, nevertheless.

    So, SushiPillow, showing how an ethnic group actually looked is considered being a bigot? *snort*

    Hebrew may be considered primarily a language today, but 2000 years ago there was a distinct ethnic group known as Hebrews in the region of modern-day Isreal, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan.

    The image was made some years ago by British and Israeli scholars from the reconstruction of the skull of a Jewish man who lived in the 1st century in the same region that Jesus would have lived. That is most likely how Christ, if he indeed was a real person, would have looked. He would have shared many of the same features as the face I posted.

    That is what the people who inhabited that region 2000 years ago actually looked. Deal with it.

    As an atheist, I still say that her paintings are very nice and probably inspirational for a lot of people, which is a GOOD thing. As long as they don`t use her as "proof of God`s existence" or something...

    First, my gut. Then my analytical.
    This kid has something, enlightment, talent, i don`t know. But it`s sure as heck something. Her art and story was comforting in a way. I can only see this being interprited as so.

    Analytical me now: This girl is talented, but suggesting she wasn`t exposed to god, even in an athiest household is ridiculous. Especially if she called god god. God is an English word, it doesn`t have true religious meaning. I can see Christians using this as proof of their god, but her initial pictures were not Christian in nature. The suggestion this is a mericle from god to show this family the light also seems ridiculous, as there are thousands, probably more worthy left in the dark. If there was a higher purpose behind this, it seems to be a ridiculous cause. Using her talent to further a specific religious cause seems stupid.

    However, I`m sure christianity has already converted someone that believes in god to someone that specifically worships yahwe

    God, in this sense anyways, is the omnipotent creator of all things. Thats what makes it more impressive than conversing with a cat.

    God is not omnipotent either...

    Its sad to see so many people are so hostile towards God. God is alive! to deny him is like to deny that the sun rises and sets! God does use people in many strange and different ways. This girl seems she has been inspired by God, but we are not to judge. Only God can give us discernment whether this a fraud or the truth.
    I feel sorry for athesists, don`t you have sad meaningless lives? What do you live for? yourself? At least as a christian or a believer your aspiring to something, you have faith in something. You have the knowledge that God will always be with you. People shun christianity because they are afraid, afriad that it could be true(and it is!!). People dont want to be restriced, to be told what their doing is wrong. But i`d rather know the truth with God and do the right thing. And a life with God is so amazing!! he always is there for me in the hard times, if only i could show you the way God has been there for me!he has blessed me with more than i could ever imag

    and just because i dont follow the same faith as her, and dont necessarily believe the same thigns as her, doesnt mean i dont approve of what shes doing.

    you people disgust me with your outright dismissal of anything higher than ourselvs. have YOU been there? have you SEEN god, or SEEN that there is NO god?

    NO.

    so stop being ignorant dumbasses and insulting other peoples beliefs.
    if you dont belive in a `higher power` then fine. but thats no need to go crapping over soemone elses.

    I believe that we should force natural selection on people that have a terminal illness, because after all, God obviously does not want them to be alive anymore. So if you know somebody with AIDS, do the right thing and feed them a potassium cyanide capsule while they are sleeping. It`s what Jesus would do.

    Wow, I can`t believe all the hostility being tossed around over the subject matter. Actually, I can because people tend to take one vocal extreme or the other over this particular issue.

    Look, it`s really this simple. If a person choices to believe in something, ANYTHING for that matter, and they are doing it for the right reasons, as long as it`s not hurting anyone, what`s the big deal? If people refuse to believe but keep an open-mind, that`s completely cool as well.

    Personally, I consider myself a smart person. I "get" how the world works and have a good grasp on various fields of study from geography, natural history, astrophysics, sociology, and theology. I don`t think anyone who knows me would ever label me as an ignoramus, and yet I believe in God. Maybe not in the same way that most people do, but it`s a belief nonetheless.

    I really dont like her work. Her fiugres seem flat, and she has a impressionism-like brush stroke that really takes away from the subjects. These look like those pictures you find on cheap calenders. Some even lok a little like those Ralph Lauren animals that were so hip in the 90s.I think she just has a great eye for detail and decent hand-eye control. I hope her early gifts don`t stop her from learning some already proven techniques, it would be terrible to waste that sort of devotion to art.

    I`m seriously bothered by how many of the commenters seem to thenk hebrew people look like.. i`m hebrew, i`m very very light skinned and have a small nose. don`t be nazi`s ya`ll.

    as for the kid- amazing artist no doubt, but if I were her mother I`d probably get her examined cause I think she might be schizophrenic (as many great artists are). not because I don`t believe in god, but because I don`t think he`s talking to her to give her the power to draw. god wouldn`t go around speaking to certain people, I don`t think so anyways.. I might be wrong.

    I didn`t finish watching it. Did she sound stoned that whole time to anyone else?
    Nice paintings. I don`t think Jesus really looked like that, though.
    Mmkay, for all those who are going to be like "How can you say he looked like a typical Jew?"
    Well, if you`ve actually read the bible, you would`ve read that bit about the Samaratain woman who immediately recognized Jesus as being Jewish, and was surprised that he was speaking to her, in that he was male and obviously of Jewish descent. And yes, at that time, most Jewish people looked like `typical Jews`, because of where they were from, who they had children with, etc.
    Theology paid off! Woot!
    If she is happy thinking that her images are coming from a divine being, let `er be. I`ll just believe she`s a tad bit, er, I dunno. It had something to do with her sounding stoned the whole time...
    or is that because I`m stoned?
    ... god damn it.

    I`m seriously bothered by how many of the commenters seem to thenk hebrew people look like.. i`m hebrew, i`m very very light skinned and have a small nose. don`t be nazi`s ya`ll.

    as for the kid- amazing artist no doubt, but if I were her mother I`d probably get her examined cause I think she might be schizophrenic (as many great artists are). not because I don`t believe in god, but because I don`t think he`s talking to her to give her the power to draw. god wouldn`t go around speaking to certain people, I don`t think so anyways.. I might be wrong.

    everyone saying god is black/white or looks a certain way is a complete dumbass...how can god look a certain way when he isnt even HUMAN!? let alone anything tangible??? hes an omnipotent entity thats all we know coz trying to comprehend his being is like an ant trying to comprehend human society. when the bible says god made man in his image, it means that he gave us qualities which god himself possesses such as emotions and the ability to love and empathy and stuff like that; things which animals are lacking coz they weren`t made in the image of god. so yea. btw, lets all just appreciate this girl and her art and screw religion in this message board coz even tho im a christian im not gonna say im right and u atheists are wrong coz that wont do us any good. peace.

    ` And her mother is an atheist? I could almost hear God say, "Take that, Bitch.", through the screen.`

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    Well, she has talent. I won`t start on religion, I`m agnostic, but hey. Not bad for a a 12-year-old

    She`s a good artist, but I can`t help but wonder if the whole thing is a set up. The whole story about her mother being an atheist, the visions from god, and all of that could just be made up to make the whole story sound more appealing in order to make money. Lots of celebrities have completely fictional personas and life stories (and she`s definitely a celebrity. She`s making millions from her paintings, and she`s been on tv tons of time).

    I`m an atheist, but I don`t think religion is such a bad thing. I think it`s beautiful when it inspires people to do good things and be better people and brings happiness to their lives. But when it is used for greed and hate, that`s when it bothers me. I don`t think it hurts anything that she`s attributing her painting to visions of god and Jesus, but I don`t believe a word of it.

    She`s amazing.And I liked her poetry too! in her website when i saw the drawings she made at 4 and 5 years old...she drew even better than me and most people i know!:0 when she gets older i dont doubt shes gonna be the greatest artist of our time..if she keeps improving each day,i cant imagine how great she`ll be when she`s 30 or 40 years old.

    Wow, it just amazes me that people are so threatened by either her talent or her religion that they think they have to go off into tangents about historical inaccuracy and whatnot. Inaccurate as it may be, in America, Jesus has always been painted, drawn and represented as being white. A twelve-year-old little girl who *might* have seen a few american drawings of him isn`t going to make the connection that he was hebrew, and anyone who picks on her for that has impossibly high standards. And I kind of thought people were past the dark ages of firing random, convoluted insults at everyone who didn`t agree with them.

    She is an AMAZING artist. Awesome, awesome, awesome!

    Stop the whole religious debate. Nobody will ever agree as a collective when it comes to that stuff, so your all just wasting "typed words."

    Incredible...Simply amazing...And I`m not afraid to speak of religion. I think her faith is just as wonderful as her art, it`s so rare to see younger kids believing in God. I am a Christian, of no particular branch and I applaud this girl for making her faith known and showing it through her artwork.

    Umm... That`s not what God or Jesus looked like! She`s a brainwashed little mental case.

    If I could meet her, I wouldn`t.

    Uuuuhhh. No one is BORN with this much faith. Sure, she may have been an amazing artist, and have a good imagination, but something, OR SOMEONE... had to fill her head with all of this religous crap. A relative? A tv program? She sounds like a drating preacher.

    ^^^I agree. really inspiring.

    oh and btw, i believe that God takes whatever image he chooses, if he chooses to reveal himself to her in a certain form (white/black/green, etc, that is what he chooses, and we are in no position to question what He does.

    It`s rediculous that some people are calling this person a mental case just because some people have this religeous PMS thing going on. IT`S A TWELVE YEAR OLD GIRL WHO IS A GREAT ARTIST FFS.
    "But oh no! She`s painting Jesus and God and I`m a religously defensive prick. I must now say she is mentally unstable."
    It`s like if she painted hamburgers wonderfully, and you were a vegetarian, than that must make her insane or something.
    So are we mature enough to look at a perspective of Jesus or God without having a period? Honestly! B-|
