Whatever your stance may be, but the internet is clearly divided in their beliefs over the photographs...

"If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." — Matthew 21:22

Perhaps, this verse fits right in fire chief Glen Thorman's rhetoric after he spotted something unbelievable on the top of his pickup truck, perhaps as an answer to his prayers, or so he thinks. 

In pictures clicked by his security motion-sensor home camera, the Michigan resident believes that a blurry, indistinct presence captured in the photographs is an "angel" hovering over his pickup truck. 

See for yourself and decide.

According to Click on Detroit.com, Thorman, who is the fire chief for East Jordan, was emailed two photos on May 9, by his security system that were clicked by the camera's installed outside his residence.

"I said, "That's an angel!" And I was just blown away," Thorman told WPBN

The first photograph shows a fuzzy, turbid, milky-hued silhouette apparently standing over his truck. The second image shows the unidentified silhouette flying away.

Without wasting time, Thorman immediately sent the photos to his pastor at Jordan Rivers Church, Deneille Moes, who posted the images on Facebook.

"It's an angel. I guess there is no question who is watching over their residence while they sleep, and yes, they pray that The Angels of the Lord will surround them and their property," Moes wrote. 

Moes insisted that the photos had not been re-touched or edited in any manner and were taken by a motion-activated camera. "The second photo, the security camera also shot because the angel was moving away," Moes further wrote. 

However, not everyone was buying into the whole angel explanation.

Many Facebook users were skeptical about the pastor's belief by suggesting it wasn't an angel, but a moth.

"It's probably a moth close to the camera. out of focus and wings moving to fast to for a camera that does 7.5 frames per second," one Facebook user wrote. 

Another one thought it was a clear example of how shoddy post-processing looks like: "Not a good job of photoshopping."

In the expert opinion of Joe Clark, owner of Glass House Photography, an insect is a logical explanation that could have most likely set-off the motion sensors.

"It is definitely moth-shaped in the first photo," Clark told WPBN. "You can kind of clearly see what looks, or could be interpreted as, wings and a head, but at the same time since it's not clearly in focus and since it is what it is, there may be room for interpretation."

But some among the social users weren't buying the insect logic.

"Someone wants you to know that they are watching over you! This is proof," one user wrote. 

Another user stated that an "angel [is] looking down on you."

Who's side are you on?
