Spiritual Yahoo! Goat with One Eye Worshipped by Villagers in India

Well, if you do not believe in God you can check out the Assam village in India for something to worship and keep your ‘spiritual’ life working.

A goat with one large eye in the middle of its forehead was born in a village in Assam, India, on May 10. This is a rare birth defect known as cyclopia.

Livescience.com reports that cyclopia is a severe form of a disorder called holoprosencephaly, which emerges during fetal development when the brain doesn’t divide into two distinct hemispheres. A fetus with cyclopia fails to develop two eye cavities, instead forming a single central eye cavity that can contain one oversize eye or two partially fused eyeballs.

This is what this goat is suffering from. But some residents of Assam village in India who believe that the goat is sacred, now think that they now have a major spiritual breakthrough and have taken to worshipping this goat o. The young goat has other defects which include only one complete ear, lacks a true nose, eyelids and eyelashes, and has jaws that are unusually small and missing teeth, causing the tongue to stick out on one side.

 

Livescience.com reported a study which revealed that in humans, cyclopia affects an average of one in every 100,000 births. According to Livescience.com, in all species, those born with these severe defects typically don’t survive for long — the researchers of the 2015 study described the condition as “incompatible with life.”

In the case of the goat, veterinary doctors had thought that it will die within a few minutes but it defied all odds and has lived on. The village has also turned into tourism spot as people now troupe to that place to see the goat with a condition seen in other animals including horses, pigs, cows and cats. This goat is still alive and is kicking on with swag especially now that some people see it as a god.

But how beautiful is this goat that someone can really choose to worship? Does this goat look appealing at all? Na wa o. Spiritual matters are strange o.
