Switzerland 'God' Figure On Street View

Snapped by Street View above a Swiss lake.Louisa Hearn - A god-like figure has been spotted on Google Street View, hovering midair above a lake in Quarten, Switzerland.

Although the image, discovered by the Gawker blog, is most likely to be the result of some sort of light distortion or lens flare, blogger Max Read has questioned whether it might have more mysterious origins.

“Is it something on the camera lens? Or is it maybe... God and His only begotten Son?

“And who's to say that God isn't 'something on the lens', in some kind of a cosmic, metaphysical sense?” he writes.

While Street View cameras have captured numerous bizarre images over the past few years, most of these have involved real people doing something out of the ordinary – like sleeping in a gutter or answering the call of nature. The most shocking of these was the recent discovery of dead bodies captured by StreetView cameras in Brazil.

But last decade it was a series of inexplicable images captured by Google Earth that piqued the interest of bloggers.

If you look at all Street View images, there's a line that stretches around the view about 3/4 to the top. Everything above the line is offset and blurry, it's in almost all Street View images. It's distortion, that's all.

All hail the God Distortion. He of the great pink toga in the sky. Live long with your Big Ben, surfing the clouds, oh mighty Distortion.

Who amongst us, driving down that road, seeing Distortion hovering in his blurry glory, would not wet himself? Amen.

It appears that wishful thinking will promote "god" in any form, even a red blur. Have the believers really become this desperate?
