I found an interesting picture on the web. (See right)
This face is supposed to be viewable with a spectrograph program. A spectrograph basically visualizes the sound spectrum.
This link describes how it was found but to cut to the chase here is the story.
Apparently images have been hidden in songs (and what else?) the above link has more pictures than this one.
I post this for a few of reasons.
1. Its pretty strange.
2. The book and movie "Contact" by Carl Sagan are among my favorites. I am a staunch creationist but I find this book/movie intriguing and honest. At the end of the book Sagan can't make others believe him and in my words (Its been awhile since I've read it or seen the movie) admits evolution and billions of years is his faith not fact. Anyway the "aliens" send an audio message that they find to contain a picture and in that a deeper picture.
3. I found the reference to images in sound in Contact interesting because I heard Kent Hovind muse about seeing sound in Heaven. I do not know if he does so in his current seminar but in a older one he did. Link
What will our eyes see?
No wonder it was hard for Biblical authors to put Heaven into words.
