the two or so sources you have linked were either an opinion piece, wild speculation, or had the words "MYTH" or "LEGEND" in the title. A myth or
legend is usually accepted as fictitious . Your sources may have possibly been the worst I have ever seen here on ATS.
What don't you get, were talking about your friends picture, not about mine.
The official page of where these paintings are given, at least have some truth to them, you know, since they own the painting and' stuff.
I don't see how, none of the sources provided by your friend contain the author the date and the drawing painting.
It is why he did not quote from the source, because there is nothing to quote, in stead he makes things up on his own.
He failed to provide a quote from the source, in stead what he did, he explained it like he wanted to.
Meaning he gave a source then started talking about it how he views it.
In one picture there is just a triangle without the eye on this guys head.
Here it is, there is no eye of providence, where is the eye ?
The concept of the eye in the triangle comes from secret sociaties.
In another there is in fact the eye of providence on a church wall but no details are given as to what specific drawing from the rest of the drawings,
what date and what author, in exchanged your fried states he is going to get the details. Then later shows up in the thread stating he gave the
Here it is, no quotation from the source, he failed to do so.
Then he comes up with a french note stating it's from that time, another great invention.
That is all for the examples he gave out.
Now back for the other painting, with the eye and triangle with the christian supper he failed to provide a source with the author who modified it and
a date because his source will not have an exact time, his soruce will probaly state, maybe, probaly, or that they think it's like that.
Meanwhile there are other examples stating that the eye does come from secret sociaties, other examples, masonic and related to masonry that do have
facts behind them.
It must be concluded that the idea of the eye and triangle publicly around europe sprang from secret sociaties around 17th century(hidden from view
not public maybe sooner) with the revolutions of independence going around in france and united states. Especialy the eye, the concept of the eye in
the triangle, trinity comes from such organisations. So there for the seal of united states, the independence, the revolution, the change.
It's really what it is, changes, and this items came with the changes into public view. What was hidden became public, incorporated into religion,
money, and so on. That is where the notion of the eye of providence came from.
