Do you know what I start to hate about illustrations?
It's that they are "little-mental-game-tricks". Nobody ever thinks about their REAL meaning. Only the other day: "We are like plants..blahalaha" Another brother went over the edge (in the infamous Daniel book study, talking about the cleansing process in ol' Russia - see my thread about "Holy Ghost switched on and off"): "Its like crude oil production...they heat it up to separate the ingredients..."
I'M NOT A PLANT, A DOG, WOLF, EGG, OR CRUDE OIL GODDAMNIT!
Again, repeat with me - very slowly: "We--a-r-e--h-u-m-a-n-s" You know the living beings that have two feet and A BRAIN TO THINK!!!!
I used to be impressed with illustrations and did a lot myself.....but it is such a shite! They oversimplify the most complicated creature in the Universe!
