Not sure what it is but looks very cool

Perspective. It's a moth much closer to the cameral than the vehicle.

Interesting fun fact: when angels were first described, it was nothing like the winged, graceful creatures we all know. They were decidedly different entities. The human brain and eye are wired to seek out human features; it usually results in Mary in a sprinkler stain on a wall or Jesus on a piece of toast.

Personally, I think if heaven was going to pull off a miracle, it'd be a little more concrete and meaningful than a water stain or amorphous white smear.

[@627992,Graylight] I know it's a little late but wanted to add about angels to your quote from Thomas Daggett. In a way that reminded me of the knights back in medieval ages. You know how their presented as saviors of the human race, always heading first into battle and rescuing fair maidens.

The reality is knights were nothing more than mercenaries. When the church couldn't control them anymore they sent them to other countries just to get rid of them. In reality they also murdered a lot of the villagers and robbed people.

That sort of reminded me of the quote. Knights were sent into battle and romanticized but it's far from the truth.

[@394395,satanburger] Fascinating. That certainly wasn't in any history class I took. Reality is so often more violent and ugly than we'd like to believe. And I wonder if some of the angel myth doesn't come from times just like that.

[@627992,Graylight] that is why i always say that Yahweh and Lucifero were actual people. that they fought for the leader position and Yahweh won. so of course, when Lucifero died, he was burned as they do in olden days and the stories came from that.
