Looks like Abraham Lincoln to me!
Do you apply the same scrutiny to other people's illustrations , and do you see strange images in the clouds there also?
Fair question. The answers, for me, are no, and not really, but on the other hand sometimes images do jump out. I didn't apply any scrutiny until after spotting infowarrior's post, and then it reminded me of my Google search a year ago and I looked again.
I do think the main image mentioned is as clear as day, no imagination required there, nor on the Roman standard, but the person who pointed out that this could have been on many such standards is probably correct.
OK, I get the general scepticism on this. Hmmm...I'm going to stick my neck out on this one and think for myself. My mind will remain open, which is how it was in the first place. Dotty thoughit may seem to many, I do think there is a chance...not a probability, just a chance...that there is more going on here than meets the eye, and I do think that psychological manipulation is complex and powerful. That may be what is going on here...it's definitely there in the text!...but as to whether or not there is anything subliminal I really have no idea.
And The Blues Brothers are one of my favourite films, along with Star Wars, all things Star Trek, and The Godfather, by the way, so what does that say about me?!
