Google Maps Got God?


View Larger Map

You tell us, do you see the divine in the snapshot? Well, do you?

It may not be Grilled Cheesus, but it is this side of "Paranormal Activity," to say the least.

This picture, taken for Google Street View off a road west of Quarten, Switzerland, has been making the rounds today, with commentary from the likes of Buzzfeed and Gawker.

Just having the picture available is a big step from where Switzerland was last year, when Switzerland's federal data protection commissioner demanded that Google Inc. immediately take down any "Street View" images, which he said violated the country's strict privacy laws. The Huffington Post reported on this and how blurring pictures is apparently not an uncommon way to preserve anonymity there.

The kid in me who went to Baptist bible summer school (and later the spiritual adult who reconciled this with Buddhism) wants to believe that there is a greater force up there, but why is it above Lake Walensee, and why at that particular moment? How Mothman!

Gawker commenters made some guesses:

"Psh. Just an obvious publicity stunt for Jesus' reality show."

"No. It's clearly Rand Paul and Sarah Palin. They are appearing in a Godless country like Switzerland in an attempt to save their souls."

"Totally NOT God. A tall figure, robed and hooded in black. That is DEATH. And Mr. Death is obviously escourting a woman in a pink nightgown to the next world. Death must be so embarassed about being caught on camera."

What do you think it is?

I have Lincoln on the wall next to our TV in the bedroom under our Star Wars poster and next to Dylan <3...Lincoln and Dylan watch me sleep. In most people's heads that's creepy...
