Moses In the Sinai

The Sinai is a really magnificent place. A peninsula that looks exactly like Piglet’s snout, a desert full of life, history, and terrorism. Looking from above, way above, a different image appears:

Do you see it? It’s Moses.

Rumour has it he’s looking at Jerusalem:

The image appears in other visual light satellite images, like this and this.

Well no, it’s obviously not Moses, but the uncanny coincidence is amazing. What you see is an intricate geological display of very old and dark Precambrian granites of the Sinai massif, thrusting through younger sedimentary limestone and dolomites, with the odd ephemeral river bed pinstriping the landscape with a contrasting white line. Hints of orange, like the “face”, is Nubian sandstone.

The psychological phenomenon is called Pareidolia, and that is the same reason why we see this outlet as shocked or angry, or this outcrop as Old Man of the Mountain. It’s only natural to expect that such a phenomenon would eventually apply to religion, and I have to say, that opposed to dog anus Jesus, this time, us Jews got the good end of the deal.

      1. Tectonically speaking, I believe that the Sinai, Israel and Lebanon form a distinct plate whose eastern fault line is the Arava, the Dead Sea, the Jordan Valley and the Bekaa Valley, and this fault line is why Israel just held a major earthquake drill. However, many of the plants and wildlife of the Negev are common to East Africa.

      2. The point is they believe in a “Black Moses”. Of course, it is clear from the mishnah (negaim, to start) that our ansestors were mostly brown-skinned Caucasians, but could be of any race. (reference on request)

        1. Brown is a strong and misleading term. Todays Arabs are barely brown. Meanwhile, the Sultan of Oman might as well be African.

  1. Glad you mentioned pareidolia. I was going to say that and how its just like Jesus toast.

    I saw a Berber (or Moses) looking to the left.
