We recall that there is an uncanny resemblance between The Beatles and ancient Roman Emperor Justinian and three of his closest friends, all represented in a mosaic more than a thousand years old.
While Paul (or Faul) resembles Justinian, we will note that George Harrison looks like Belisarius.
This brought me to examine who was the Pope at that time. After all, Justinian is noted for having JAILED THE POPE FOR HERESY to force him to repudiate the teachings of Jesus about Reincarnation. Is this why maybe this Pope reincarnated in the 20th Century?
This article identifies the two other officials pictured next to Justinian whom John Lennon and Ringo Starr look like, as possibly his financial backer, a banker named Julianus Argentarius, the other being Belisarius' rival General Narses, who happened to also be a eunuch. Narses became Justinian's High Chamberlain at what, in those trying times, was the ripe old age of 50 and reconquered Italy and Rome from the Goths.

...And then he decided to join forces with Jesus and Cleopatra and Hitler and together the four of them...
Oh good grief, I can't even try to make fun of such stupidity...

Gee, and when I was young, I looked something like Augustus Caesar when he was young. Does this mean?...

At the time of Justinian, the financial backer of the Roman Emperor was... the Roman Emperor. They owned all the things. All of them. They were the wealthiest of the wealthy. That's how Roman Emperors worked for a good long while.

So not only is this one of the stranger theories I've ever seen it also involves Paul is Dead claims as well!

Obviously it means that you are the fifth Beatle.

I was hoping Donald P. Belisarius was going to be involved...

You realize that ancient artwork isn't that accurate, right?

And my dad, when younger and had a beard, looked like Grant on the $50 bill. "Looks like" does not equal "was the same person."

Man, not even Nick Cage would be in this movie. What a crap plot.

Unless General Belisarius' Dad was a cart driver from a depot in a grotty suburb of Constantinople, I don't see much correspondence. And I believe Mr. Starkey still has full possession of his nuts.

I'm struggling with this one. Um, WHAT!?
7/2/2012 12:14:24 PM
Um. Can someone explain this crazy to me?
7/2/2012 4:13:23 PM
Just about everybody looks like a Beatle with a "bowl" haircut.
If I believed in an afterlife, I'd believe that John Lennon would do you harm for callinghim a banker in a former life.
Ringo as a general? pfftttt..

The narrator of Thomas the Tank Engine, badass general and liberator of Rome?
Quite the CV.

Ignoring the Rest of the Crazy for a moment, Belisarius reconquered Italy (With almost no help from Justinian) - not Narses.
Now that's out of the way, who is Theodora in this... Reincarnation Conspiracy?

Well, I just had to laugh...

Damn Goths are all re-incarnated too!
Hundreds of them in High Schools .... except for Japan, where for some reason they're reincarnated as Barbie Dolls.
7/13/2012 6:12:38 AM
um. Can someone explain this with logic?
