Oooo..Apolcolyse ghost horse & a phone call from my dad.

My dad called me today just to talk to me about this supposed "ghost horse" on the news. I had not seen it before and I had no idea what he was talking about. He said that during a newscast, a ghostly green horse with a rider rides across the screen. Then, he throws in "ya know, it's just like the horsemen of revelations." Really, Dad? A little shocked, I responded, "So, it's the end of the world, eh?"

 

Now, I don't know if my dad knows I am an atheist. I have my mom as a friend on facebook so it is a possibility. I'm almost so sure that he knows/just found out and this phone call was supposed to be a conversation starter.

 

To the end of the world question, he answered that he didn't think so and followed by rambling on about other random sighting...one of which was about the devil face formed in the smoke rising from the Twin Towers on 9/11.

 

Again...Really, Dad? Really? Next thing you know, you're going to tell me about Jesus on some toast. I had to stop him before he went to far....

 

"Dad, remember when we were younger and you told us ghosts didn't exist? They still don't."

"Yeah, but those things are pretty crazy looking."

 

.....subject change!!! I really don't want the first conversation between my dad and I about religion to be over the phone. I definitely didn't want the talk to include devil-smoke-faces and Jesus on a dog's ass. [Although the next time I see my dad, I am going to show him that picture.]

 

Oh, my dad... I love him to death but if this was an attempt to hint to a higher power, it was lame.

Until next time dad. . . until next time.

 

Here's the video. It does take the shape of a green horseman but it's not a ghost or a sign from Yahweh. Fast foward to 1:17.

Yeah, that was circling the blogosphere when the video first went out. It's just weird refracted light is all. :)

I love how it is obviously something going on with the lens by the way that it moves in perfect unison as the camera rotates.

Reminds me of the time when a story about a car driving itself got popular. A car, with a guy sitting on the passenger seat reading a news paper, was driving itself on the streets of Delhi in traffic. People started calling the news stations, calling it divine influence etc. Later on it turned out that the car had been modified & had all the pedals on the passenger side and the guy was steering the wheel from below the newspaper and watching the road from the top of the paper.

Some engineering & a whole lotta balls, not divine intervention.
