Clearly it was ...

Clearly it was not a document in its original form, it was created digitally. The smoke screen argument that has been tossed into the mix to confuse people that are none Photoshop and Illustrator people is the duplicating or creating of layers thru scanning argument. Without going into a long boring tech description the rare anomaly that some times occurs is not what is being seen here. If you will remember I chose my words clearly and said "no digital anomaly will create these precise type of layers" A digitally constructed document with layers can be printed but but scanning a printed document does not create layers when converted to a digital file. The mistake that the forger made was that after he created the the document from pieces of many documents that he did not flatten it. Meaning he left all of the evidence of his work available to be seen and back tracked. All he had to do is use the keyboard short cut of control E on a pc or command E on a Mac and we would not have so much overwhelming evidence. If you don't want to be convinced with the evidence you never will be and I can't change that. One last note, it either clearly has layers or it doesn't, there is nothing in between that "appears to be a layer" that digital state does not exist.
