Honestly? Because I liked it. No Illuminati references intended.. I merely liked it. It's a copy, paste, and crop from a full face owl pic that I got in an email from a dear friend recently.<quoted text>
the owl and the 'all seeing eye' are both symbols of the Illuminati Freemasons. We see that eye on the back of the one dollar bill on top of the pyramid and we also see the little owl at the top right hand corner on the front of the dollar bill.
(to those of you unfamiliar with Illuminati symbolism, this might interest you):
You seem like a very intelligent person so I gather that you did not choose your avatar randomly. To take the effort to choose the eye of an owl took forethought and intent. So why did you choose the eye of an owl?
(I can always put my "evil" eye back up, hehe! I've had people poke fun at me saying they want my old one back.. The old one has been "me" for so long now)...
