Caught On News Footage: Pale Rider From Revelations?

Via WND...

The footage, provided by Euronews and subsequently seen on MSNBC, CNN and uploaded over a dozen times to the popular video sharing site YouTube, captures the fiery, violent protests in Cairo this past week … and something else.

Between the crowds of protesters and barricades, the video shows a flowing, pale green image that resembles an erect rider atop a horse in Medieval-like barding. The ethereal figure remains for a few moments before floating over protesters' heads and off the screen.

The last of the biblical Book of Revelation's Four Horseman of the Apocalyse, the "pale rider" is said to be the bringer of death and the forerunner of "hell" on earth.

Is it?

Go to the 1:19 mark.

God has sent maybe His 'first' messenger seen on the video

CC my friend and all peoples should pray for peace in the 'Middle East' and for all mankind.

Canadian Sentinel said...

Could also be a ghost of an old jihadist or Crusader... who knows?

Anonymous said...

I think that the footage was edited

Reflection of camera piece as videographer was shooting through glass door/window and pans right.

Many other spots of reflected light follow same path.

I did see a rider of the apocalypse type charge into the crowd the other day.

He was on a camel.

Canadian Sentinel said...

I saw the Camel Guy too!

Was like, WTF! Who rides a friggin' CAMEL anymore?!

Balbulican said...

So the highly trained and professional "journalists" at the Birther Bible can't actually tell the difference between lens flare and a ghost?

What do you figure, Scenty? Are they deliberately liars, or are they just stupid?

Anonymous said...

I agree with the reflection theory as it was not likely edited but editing is also a possibility but as it is news?
??? not likely LOL

glacierman said...

Now with everyone bringing in these references of Biblical prophecy, how about this one to mull over for a while!?

Isaiah 21:7 (New International Version, ©2010)

7 When he sees chariots
with teams of horses,
riders on donkeys
or riders on camels,
let him be alert,
fully alert.”

Canadian Sentinel said...

By the way, what proof is there that it's necessarily a reflection?

Proof. Not want-to-believe.

Poor Balbulican. Wants to believe Obama proved that he was born in USA.

Canadian Sentinel said...

Poor old Balbulican dude.

Can't help himself.

Obsessed with Scary Scenty.


Now there's gonna be TWO Scentys around here to drive the silly old coot up the wall, around the bend, over the hill and up his own arse...

The American is still working on her moniker under which to post herein...

And, boy, will she be... awesome...

Think... another Sarah Palin... another Grizzly Mama...


Balbulican said...

You kinda missed the point, Scenty.

a) I am, among other thing, a cameraman, director and editor. (If you doubt that, you can see my work at The video you posted shows lens flare. You can tell because there are other lens flares (small spots of light) that follow exactly the same trajectory in the frame as the "horseman".)

b) I don't fault you for not recognizing it: it's something that most people don't know about. But any photographer, videographer, film-maker, or journalist knows exactly what that it.

c) The fact that WND published it with such an extraordinarily stupid "explanation" attests to either their foolishness or their dishonesty.

Which is it?

Canadian Sentinel said...

Why should I even bother to listen to a guy who is indubitably part of the massive propaganda/intimidation campaign to make people believe something that is NOT true, ie. that Obama's Presidency is Constitutionally satisfied with valid, admissible, non-fraudulent documentation CONCLUSIVELY proving his American-soil birth?

Anyways, as he was NOT born to two American citizens, he's ALREADY ineligible.

And I am proud to be a "birfer".

I'm a "birfer". Got a problem? Kiss my ass, bro!

Canadian Sentinel said...

Oh, her provocative questions, sarcasm and wit will hit you like many bolts of lightning, dude...

Has the Sentinel finally found his match?

Well, I'll say this much:

Stay tuned. ;)

Balbulican said...

I'm sorry, I'm not sure what all that has to do with the fact that the folks at WND published a video of lens flare, apparently thinking it was an horseman of the apocalypse.

Do you think they were lying, or just badly mistaken and too embarrassed to admit their error?

And you? Do you now understand what was happening in that video?

Balbulican said...

"Oh, her provocative questions, sarcasm and wit will hit you like many bolts of lightning, dude."

Dude...I'm not impressed by any blogger who has to hide behind censorship to win an argument.

If your new blogger has the brains and balls to argue in an open forum, then bring her on.

Somehow I doubt it.

Balbulican said...

Umm...are you going to carry on a monologue, or are you going to publish polite responses written in good faith?

∞ ≠ ø said...

What a marvelous example for the "American Counterpart," a visit from blabonagain.

It was crude, full of misrepresentations, slander, and patently venomous.

First of all WND drew no conclusions about the video. They simply reported what others were saying about it and explained the biblical reference.

So bafoonagain may choose... liar or stupid, the label is his to wear. (As in "balbulican you are, among other thing, a liar.") And since there is only one other thing, that must be stupid.

Oh yes, stupid. For example anyone as self loving as you should check your facts before attempting to dazzle with your bulshitagain.

While there are examples of lens flare at the opening and closing of the series the 'rider' is not lens flare. Plainly this is a R-E-F-L-E-C-T-I-O-N of a component on the Steadicam or DVrig and you are a complete blustering moron for not being able to make that distinction while simultaneously being critical of members of your profession for poor judgment.

You effing idiot. You missed the point. The story wasn't about the veracity of the image on the film but simply about the stir it caused and why.

The guy on the camel was a real bastard. I hope the crowd caught hold of him and pulled him off. The rest we need not know.

glacierman... the fall of Babylon. It is an interesting read. My translation mentions riding in pairs.
I don't wish this, but if I saw paired riders in Egypt, on camels, donkeys or horses, and heard that balbulican dropped dead while eating his dinner.... this would deepen my faith.

Canadian Sentinel said...

"Dude...I'm not impressed by any blogger who has to hide behind censorship to win an argument.

Let's see...

What do you think of the likes of George Soros et al running things, puppeting Obama, Ignatieff, Layton, etc... from behind the Coward Curtain? Once your overlords openly admit that they're trying to control and run the world according to their evil desires, then you will be speaking from a position of moral okayness. AS such currently, however, you are simply NOT.

(Watch Balbulican nervously deny and utter phony laughter)

She's got far more brains than Balbulican, and more "balls", too. And the more Balbulican wants to taunt, the more she loves it, and will tear him yet another new stinky one. Pitbull with lipstick versus fat old commie pig. ;)

"Somehow I doubt it."

-of course. That's your M.O., Balbulican. Doubting and denying truth while pushing bullshit and myth as if true.

Can't hide behind the professional stuff when it's obvious one is actually an undercover propagandist, community organizer, etc.

Balbulican said...

Dear runes: the "journalists" at WND published this drivel in full knowledge that this is a purely optical phenomenom, and are exploiting the credulous and the cretinous to suggest the possibility of a mystery where none exists.

You condone this, and Scenty swallows it whole, and that's fine. I'm simply pointing out the level of integrity exhibited by the birfer bible. It's delightful, really, and confirms the level of wilful deception required to sustain a birfer worldview.

(There, now, Scenty - isn't it nice to have some discussion in here again?) :)

Canadian Sentinel said...

There, in fact, may also be yet MORE bloggers joining...

Balbulican said...

"Doubting and denying truth while pushing bullshit and myth as if true."

Oh, dear. You DO remember the drivel that you linked from your Birfer rag that started this discussion, don't you? :)

As for "commie" - Scenty, do you know a lot of "commies" who run their own for-profit companies and manage downtown Ottawa real estate? Just curious.

Canadian Sentinel said...

Well, the Chinese Communists run massive-profit, to-hell-with-human-rights businesses... and they're STILL commies. ;)

Bet u know some of 'em.

Balbulican said...

Oh, please. Are you still on that kick? Even the author of that lie apologized for it.

Canadian Sentinel said...

NO one has any idea what you're sputtering about, pal.

Better enlighten with links, logic, reason... who "lied"? What is the "lie"? And HOW is it a "lie"?

Too busy 4 u... sorry. Much more important things to do.

But others are free to take Pang Hat Wearing Fuzz Face to task...

Canadian Sentinel said...

Oh, never mind.

I remember now.


It was priceless, your reaction, actually. LOLOLOLOL

Canadian Sentinel said...

Considering, especially,as we know you ain't Chinese.

Canadian Sentinel said...

But you sure ARE a communist.

Like the others, you naturally deny it.

And use words like "progressive", "social justice", "social democracy", etc...

Canadian Sentinel said...

Contemporary commies are allowed to make profits.

Don't ask me why.

But it seems that the whole Marxist thing has evolved in an astonishingly hypocrical way.

Canadian Sentinel said...

Oops- "hypocritical"... me bad.

Balbulican said...

"NO one has any idea what you're sputtering about, pal. Better enlighten with links, logic, reason... who "lied"? What is the "lie"? And HOW is it a "lie"?"


Certainly, since you ask. Your friend Jana, a professional journalist and "reporter" for Epoch Times, accused me on this site (and others) of being an actual communist Chinese spy. As you may recall, she rescinded the accusation, and acknowledged with unusual candor that she's not actually a very good reporter. (No kidding).

Your ongoing association of me with Chinese communism is a bit of mystery, since I'm not a communist, and support a free Tibet and a democratic China. As for me being a communist...heh. Scenty, since you once asserted that the Reagan-backed death squads in El Salvador were "leftist" (because, I guess, they were "bad"), I think you must have some very personal definition of "communism" that no doubt means something to you.

Canadian Sentinel said...

But you DO support Communism's social agenda for the world, yes?

Or International Socialism, in other words.

If you are onside with the overall Leftist Agenda, then you qualify as a "Communist", notwithstanding that you do make profits (which is allowed as far as contemporary communists are concerned, at least with respect to the elites of society).

I have no recollection of any discussion of "Reagan-backed death squads in El Salvador". I have no bloody idea of what you speak.

You certainly have fun screwing around with language, definitions and such, don't you? It gets your rocks off, apparently.

Canadian Sentinel said...

And your typically-Leftist animosity towards Israel and ill-advised support for the myth of "Palestine" is all I need to know what kind of person you are.

But if you are misinformed, brainwashed, whatever, wrt that situation, you may be forgiven... BUT only if you admit that you probably are, and undertake a serious effort to learn and understand the actual truth.

Balbulican said...

"You certainly have fun screwing around with language, definitions and such, don't you?"

Heh. Well, it's because you keep using words like "communist" in ways I frankly don't understand and you refuse to explain. If a "communist", to you, is an individual who believes in and protects private property, profits, investment income, and parliamentary democracy (all of which are utterly antithetical to communism), then you're using the word in a very odd way.

Since I support the complete democratization of China and any other country characterized by single party rule (including the Islamist states), I'm not sure what "Communist Agenda" you think I'm supporting.

As for my "animosity toward Israel" - uh, like most Israelis, I support the existence of Israel unequivocally, and endorse the creation of a demilitarized Palestinian state under the condition that it recognizes Israel's right to exist. So what animosity, precisely, are you referring to??? As far as I can tell, my position is pretty much the same as Benjamin Netanyahu's.

Canadian Sentinel said...

So will you therefore apologize for willingly ignoring the concrete evidence that Israel did NO WRONG when boarding that ship of the "Flotilla", and that the folks onboard were in the wrong for attempting to murder the peaceful law enforcement IDF Seals who only wanted to ensure that no illegal things like weapons were on the ship?

Not caring about the TRUTH and choosing to bash the innocent and stand with the bloodthirsty Islamic Supremacists... that convinced me that you are insanely anti-Israel and pro-"Palestine".


Oh, and simply claiming to support what you above claimed to support... does not necessarily mean that you actually DO.

I can tell the difference in your communications, such as those demonstrated post-Flotilla-Incident.

Do not think you will fool people who pay attention to the apparent positions you take in "debate" aside from CLAIMS of positions you supposedly have.

Canadian Sentinel said...

And the folks on that flotilla ship, they cannot be seen as justified in their actions, unless one would also justify the actions of civilians here at home attempting to slay police officers for simply doing their job in a nonviolent, peaceful manner.

Balbulican said...

I'm sorry, can you point to whatever it is you want me to apologize for?

And were you going to explain how believing in and protecting private property, profits, investment income, parliamentary democracy, and the democratization of autocratic states (Communist, Islamist, or Military) makes me a "commie"?
