Man born with a “tail” worshiped as a god.

A guy born with a bunch of hair growing out of his back is being worshiped as a god by mobs of people:

… the 35-year-old tea picker said he wouldn’t change a thing and enjoys having God-like status even if his wife can’t stand it.

Oraon is worshipped by hundreds of followers in his native India who think he is a monkey God because he was born with a tail growing out of his back.

Some Hindus view the tail as good luck and believe it’s a sign he’s an incarnation of a monkey God known as Hanuman, Barcroft TV reported.

Here’s a pic of his “tail”:

God’s used to create universes, now this is how they choose to confirm proof of their god-hood.  Apparently, to gobs of people, a birth defect is a less plausible explanation for this than someone being a god.  Born with a bunch of weird hairs growing out of your back?  You must be a god!  Born with an abnormally large brain?  Meh, you’re just a scientist or a really smart person…impressive, sure, but we’ll reserve our worship for the truly incredible, thanks.

Hey, I’ve got an ingrown toe nail.  Let’s see you all bow and scrape.
