4th Horseman Appears at Egyptian Protests
I’d heard of the website Above Top Secret, but I had never been there. Apparently that’s where a lot of the conspiracy kooks hang out. It looks like a bunch of skeptics hang out there, too. I don’t know how well that tempers the crazy. It looks like there’s some good stuff on that site mixed in with the crap.
This, however, is crap. According to one of the message threads on the site, the 4th Horseman of the Apocalypse was seen moving through the crowds during the protests in Egypt! You can see it on the Rachel Maddow show. Skip ahead to about the 10:27 mark in the video. Here is a screen capture:
It’s that green blob in the center. Yes, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are really just blobs. Why are people so freaked out? Just send in Steve McQueen.
You should go watch the video. It really does look a lot like a horseman when you see it moving across the screen. If I believed in this stuff, I’d be a bit creeped out.
To be fair, the original poster admits that it’s probably an optical illusion. To my eye, it is definitely an illusion. They’re probably shooting through a window, so it’s a reflection off of that. The greenishness is likely caused by a heat-reflecting coating on the window (this is freaking Egypt, after all) or maybe an anti-reflective coating in the lens.
Or everything is true, Jesus is coming back, and us atheists will be roasting in hell next week. Bring your marshmallows. (Hey! We could make s’mores! Just put chocolate and marshmallows between two slices of Billy Graham!)
