I will present you something that i believe to be:
a) the evidence that God is indeed real,and has a huge influence on events in our lives
b) or incriminating evidence that Bible is a hoax
More recent methods of scholarship, such as textual criticism, have been influential in suggesting that John the Apostle, John the Evangelist and John of Patmos were three separate individuals. Differences in style, theological content, and familiarity with Greek between the Gospel of John, the epistles of John, and the Revelation are seen by some scholars as indicating three separate authors.
The Book of Ezekiel describes itself as the words of the Ezekiel ben-Buzi, a priest living in exile in the city of Babylon between 593 and 571 BC. The various manuscripts, however, differ markedly from each other, and it is clear that the book has been subjected to extensive editing. While Ezekiel himself may have been responsible for some of this revision, there is general agreement that the book as we have it today is the product of a highly-educated priestly circle that owed allegiance to the historical Ezekiel and was closely associated with the Temple.

I am sorry if i haven't presented this in the right way...i rarely post threads.
The thing is there are two descriptions,from two different times,by two different people who may or may not have connection.
Well it is very strange if two people who couldn't interact with each other gave these descriptions,resembling the same beings...
Makes u wonder
And another thing,i highly doubt that John had access to the prophecy of Ezekiel
Through comparative etymology, analysis of ancient texts (including pre-Hebrew Semitic language), and pharmacological consistencies she contends that the word kaneh-bosm actually refers to cannabis and was used in ancient Jewish religious rites, as a medicine and ritual sacrament. Benet's work is an example that cannabis use has a long culturally important history, and that the criminalization and demonization of cannabis is a recent invention
In 1980 the Hebrew University in Israel confirmed Sula Benet's interpretation of Kaneh Bosm (kineboisin) as hemp blossoms.
However, the words 'Kaneh bosm' are not in the KJV or the new international version of the bible. This is because the translators from the original language determined that "Kaneh bosm" should be interpreted as "Calamus" and other similar sounding plants. en.wikipedia.org...
