The secret message of Michelangelo

This is a message from the famous Renaissance artist Michelangelo to us. It is a message hidden in one of the most famous paintings of all time, Creation of Adam. It is hidden, yet it is extremely obvious in modern times.

Michelangelo was generally funded by Catholic Church for paintings and sculptures. He was actually a very intellectual and pro-science artist who just happens to be stuck in the middle of powerful religious cult. Thus he expresses his ideas about god in this painting.

He implies that there is no God that created us, but we created the God and other related things in our minds. That is why all those religious figures are depicted in the brain shaped frame.
