To the OP:
While I do believe in these hand signals and such, the blog you provided a link to claims everything from pointing one's index finger to adjusting
one's glasses is an occult sign. It even claimed that a close-up face portrait picture is somehow an occult/Masonic symbol.
However, keeping an open mind, I would REALLY like to run this by Jim Marrs and see what he thinks because he knows more than anyone else I can think
of when it comes to this subject.
My blog www.waitingtorot.blogspot.com...
is based on the German book Freimaurersignale in der Presse. This book describes 12 signs:
1 pointing of the index finger in a photograph (the index near the eyes and near the mouth are distinct masonic signs. Pointing the index straight at
the camera, is also a sign seen often in newwspapers.
2 the ubiquitous ok sign
3 making the fist
4 making a pyramid with the forearms
5 the hand in play (holding an invisible ball with one or both hands) very common
6 the hand on the heart for no explained reason (like oath swearing etc)
7 masonic handshake (the thumb is seen turned downward and pressing the other person's knuckle)
8 eyes looking up for no explained reason (imitation of pictures of Jesus on the cross)
9 looking above the glasses in a picture
10 touching the glasses in a picture
11 hands on the nectie in a picture (distress signal)
12 hands on the neck (distress signal)
Texxe Marrs is aware of the author of this book,, Johannes Rothkranz , because he gives him credits in codex magica as an expert on signs. The problem
with codex magica is that this book manages to miss the most common signs while focusing on some other rarely seen signs and ridiculus stuff like
neckties or finger rings. Freimauresignale in der Presse is widely available on emule for evaluation but also sold online BTW.
