Look, I never said and none of the people I referenced said that the statue was a replica of the creature in Revelation, it's a simple equation of a woman on a beast with that idea. The statue could be a woman riding a lion, a woman riding a dragon, a woman riding a bear, the same idea would occur to us if not to you.

How about a woman on a horse?

We recognize it as reflecting the woman on the beast in Revelation whether you like it or not.

Well, yes, of course you do. But it's not 'whether we like it or not', it's 'whether it is or not'.

And according to your bible it quite obviously isn't. 'Cos if it was, it would look like this:

"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast. . . ." (Rev. 13:1-4).

Instead, it looks like a bull. Which makes it a land living, common-or-garden, male cow and not a mythical sea monster with seven heads and bits and pieces of lions, bears and leopards scattered about its person.

we CAN'T be wrong.

And that delusion of certainty is what make people to fly planes into tall buildings.

No desperation involved. A bunch of us IMMEDIATELY saw the Europa statue in terms of the woman on the beast in Revelation. Straightforward recognition. All the "objective" stuff is absolutely irrelevant.

This is what delusion and confirmation bias is - you IMMEDIATLEY saw something that "objectively" isn't there. You made a random object fit your delusion. The object is absolutely nothing like the biblical description of it, yet you made a match.

It's a perfect delusion and it's as clear as day to everyone but you.

Edited by Tangle, : No reason given.
