Earthquakes in divers[e] places AND UPON THE SEA DISTRESS OF NATIONS
|My original illustration for this story|
|And this just in after I published -- an update!|
Quoting from the King James Bible, Jesus warned when his disciples asked what should be the signs of his coming and of the end of the world that there would be, inter alia, "earthquakes in divers (many) places AND UPON THE SEA DISTRESS OF NATIONS."
Certainly, we have seen a great deal of "distress of nations" along the various world seas, including but not limited to the 2003 tsunami that violently struck many Asian nations, many Florida hurricanes; Hurricane Katrina hitting the Gulf Coast and nearly destroying New Orleans in 2005.
Now our prayers need to be with the projected one third of the United States that is said to be at potential risk from the lethal combination of Hurricane Sandy colliding with a cold front that could bring extreme rain, snow, and flooding to the eastern 1/3 of our country, even posing a potential threat to the Great Lakes region of which my part of the country is classified.
The storms are expected to threaten Massachusetts starting tonight, Sunday, October 27, 2012. One of our most diligent contributors to our discussion board is Springfield, Massachusetts resident Susanna. She and her husband faced tornado hazards a year or two ago. Now they are probably occupied with preparations for this potential regional disaster.
We need to pray, be prepared to extend necessary support and relief supplies for those in this affected area. We also must soberly consider it as a grave "sign of the time." Just maybe, atheist scoffing not withstanding, God is trying to send us a message -- e.g, 'WAKE UP'!
May the Lord help us all, especially those in these gravely affected areas. I pray that the storm will turn back to sea or lose intensity. However, we must always remember that God has the big picture and we the little ones and our most constant prayers should be "Come quickly, Lord Jesus" and "thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done . . ."
P.S. AND THIS JUST IN: TSUNAMI WARNING ISSUED FOR SOUTHERN ALASKA -- VIOLENT EARTHQUAKES OFF THE WESTERN CANADA COAST -- TSUNAMI WARNING EXTENDS TO WASHINGTON AND OREGON COASTS!
I read your comments on my last post with great interest. I'm catching up from "older than I used to be" combined with "more recent court than usual" combined with trying to write another book which is going well for me.
I wish I could say I was surprised. Things like that have been said to happen here according to not easily dismissed allegations.
I will check out Mr. Gerrish's work with interest.
One possible scenario of this Frankenstorm 2012 (or 'the perfect storm'), that's about to hit the East Coast, would be that 60 million people over an 800 mile wide area could be without power long enough to postpone the election.
Also, If anyone out there still doubts that weather can be modified, this is a must see video.
Dr. Ben Livingston ~ The Father of Weaponized Weather
This video reveals satellite and radar captured infrasonic undulation, chemtrails enmass and chemdumping.
WHO is at the helm?
WHY are they doing this?
And a geologist figured that the San Andreas Fault where it comes out of the gulf between Baja California and Mexico is going to take the path of least resistance in being the new edge of a new tectonic plate, and go between CA and NV and up to OR and WA bypassing the old fault line, or being a fork with both.
Supposedly this will happen in a 100,000 years, but I suspect it will be a lot sooner. A guy had a vision or dream of CA split from NV and at least 7 volcanos going off and water pouring between CA and NV. this is possible. A newly discovered fault line is right there.
"It will be by their hand that lightening, earthquakes and tsunamis strike"
website appears to me like a hoax and a load
of lies, which the people who are publishing it
think that the end justifies the means.
"But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."
this sounds like the past few hundred years. things might indeed run slower than you expect. but it is accelerating.
Susanna and her husband are both fine. Although they did get wind and rain, the worst of the storm came in to the south of where they live.
Looks cool, Constance.
I fumbled across this interesting site that is a calendar of many of the New Age events for the entire year of 2012 going back to January and the ones to come between now and the end of the year. A couple of the events coming up in December especially caught my attention. There is one conference of the "New Group of World Servers" which I have seen Constance comment on during the last 30 years. I haven't seen an update on that group until now. Another one is with Babara Marx Hubbard on December 22. This calendar even has "Wiccan" events.
This is very interesting. Pagan Chaplain Patrick McCollum was a special guest speaker for the "Awakened World Conference" which was held this past month on October 13-21 in Rome. Notice a picture of him sitting between Ghandi's grandaughter and a spokesman for the Dalai Lama. Very interesting to see an all out open pagan chaplain getting along so well with many other world religious leaders at this conference. Another thing you might find of interest is comments by this Patrick McCollum in some of his own websites. You will find many with him when you put his name into a search engine.
Thank you both for your kind words and for your concern.
My husband and I are very grateful to God that we were spared the worst of Hurricane Sandy.
This "superstorm" was a frightful event that spawned at least one microburst which caused significant damage in a town called Wareham near Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
Something like that could very well have happened here. In fact, a large microburst occurred not far from me last year just one week after the tornado struck on June 1, 2011.
This year, we were fortunate enough not to have had to deal with anything worse than heavy winds and rain here in Springfield, Massachusetts and sustained only very minor damage ( i.e. a blown out screen on our porch).
Since this was the worst we had to deal with we have no complaints and we are very happy that our state of Massachusetts is in a position to send help to our neighboring states - especially New York and New Jersey - which bore the brunt of this storm.
By the way, Constance, I hope you are not suffering from the secondary effects of this storm. I heard that they were expected to extend as far north as Canada and as far West as Chicago. The storm was about 900 miles wide.
I am reminded of 2 Chronicles 7:14
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
The devil wants so much to destroy America, will we let him?
We must turn to Jesus with a repentant heart.
"A few good men" can greatly change a nation for the better, of course.
Thanks for the McCollum Awakened World information. I do my internet radio program twice a week and did two very lively programs Lots of deliciously wicked space for satire there -- no pun intended. You might want to retrieve them from THE MICROEFFECT.COM archives.
"And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."
The church is the key to the blessings of our nation. God's blessings upon the USA depend upon us - the church. That is why the enemy is plotting against the church. There is growing apostasy in the churches and liberal doctrines taking over. Ordaining homosexual pastors, denying the full authority of Scripture, changing the music, changing the focus of the church to humanitarian pursuits instead of fulfilling the Great Commission.
It also depends upon our nation's treatment of Israel.
"And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."
Yes, God is slowly removing his hedge of protection around the USA.
Thanks for the update! I will now have to google "microbursts".
I'm thrilled that you are all ok after this enormous regional disaster. Other than a couple of very cold and windy days, we came through ok.
Agree with much of what you say about the Church in the U.S., but please elaborate on "...changing the music..." Thanks.
okay, so try this idea. hunt for information and connect the dots.
Heads up: Google 'We Day'
now, given the occult connections of the foundation of the youth in the wilderness type movements, that might be odd in itself. There is a category of witchcraft that uses that hand sign to repel and control entities getting out of control, and it is (unbeknownst to the modern users, but the founders of the branch in Oregon in the 1930s were nominal Christian) a veiled version of the sign of The Trinity, three fingers up (first, second and thumb) and two down (the two natures of Christ, divine and human).
the graphics didn't load on that site, but the we day dance I could locate is like a rap dance, though the leader seems to have his hand near his groin too much, instead of to the side like the others behind him do, when demonstrating how to do it. Sort of like Michael Jackson.
Thank you for the heads up information on this "We Day" movement. It is really worth checking out what they are educating our educators and students with. This is a continuation of educating kids on becoming "Global Citizens". Interesting to see Mikhail Gorbachev promoting this. Here is one of their websites.
thanks for reminding me about cutting edge ministries.
I see superficially on line that DAVID ICKE has interviewed him. I don't know much about MR. GERRISH, but I am quite well informed on the New Ager DAVID ICKE. I have to question DISCERNMENT on somebody working with ICKE.
I very much DOUBT that our beloved PSALMS were once sung (at least in church and synagogues) to the tune of BELLY DANCE MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!!
get a load of the crap coming out of the Vatican. this site, Tom Horn, is not something I recommend to the undiscerning, but sometimes he comes up with good information.
scroll down to the bit about how they might bring better religious information. WTskubala, if it conflicts with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, then they are fallen and need evangelizing. why are they more believeable than the usual crew of Gospel deniers from earth?
The demand to do some quality study on information available remains, but I am not going to argue with him anymore. Though he is not lazy etc. I still find his wierd twisting and shifting of ground in arguments quite familiar from my history of dealing with very dishonest people. I am not sure he feels that certain of his positions and doesn't want to face the possibility there is more out there than a university teaches, that some fraud and error may be at the root of a lot of modern science though not all of course.
When he dismissed Constance's worries about Project Blue Beam on the basis that holography is not occult, that was a classic example of either some kind of serious sloppiness or some (whatever motive) dishonesty, because she never said or implied it was occult practice, only that it could be used to promote an occult agenda.
Personally I think Blue Beam is bogus, and unworkable in the unstable environment outdoors. But that was not the argument he made, rather, he pretended she thought it was an occult art which she never said.
In order to know where the limits of science are, you have to know something about it. You don't, and it shows. As for which of us twists words, let people look up what was actually said rather than your summary of it, and decide for themselves.
David Icke did interview Brian Gerrish but Brian very definitely does NOT work with him and has never interviewed him in return. Icke was the first to talk about the paedophilia and Satanism of the elite and has been responsible for waking a lot of people up to the political agenda in our country and Brian has to give him credit for that, with the current revelations going on. But he keeps him at arm's length. He even did the interview with Icke standing outside his house, in the English drizzle! which I think speaks volumes...
Brian Gerrish is trying to wake up as wide an audience in the UK as possible to the political realities, though the sad truth is that many of his supporters and followers are themselves New Agers who think they are in opposition to globalisation. We Christian supporters who know that the Luciferian New Age is just the PR arm of Satanism hope that he will soon speak out explictly about the dangers of the said New Age, or New Thought, or whatever alias they are using at the moment.
I don't know if you've heard Brian's interview with Dr Stan Monteith yet - you might be better able to see where he's coming from when he's talking to another Christian.
Anyway, I am aware that you in the US have your plate full already, without checking up on British campaigns. I'm so glad that your book is going well. You are in my prayers. Thank you so much for all you have done, and continue to do. I recommend your work to everyone I know and beyond.
must be okey, and if sodomy is okey then
how long before Bible believing is outlawed ?
Your original comment that the music in the Temple
must have sounded like belly dancing music, was
Citing different types of Middle Eastern music of
today does nothing to justify your original comment.
Your website shows you to be someone who believes
anything and everything that Jeff Rense has up on
his site. UFO's, Morgellons disease, chem trails, nibiru, reptilians, etc etc etc etc etc .
I'm really beginning to think that you are in fact
a disinformation agent and an agent provocateur.
You certainly bring a full dose of confusion to this website.
First you're on your meds, then you're not...
You say that you're a Christian, so everyone here gives you a pass. I'm really rather tired of your
grandiosity. It's one thing to be scatter-brained, but to be self righteousness about it is too much.
You even rearrange your, and other people's, former comments in order to justify some of the ridiculous
things you've said.
You've lost me as someone who will defend you.
You should apply for a job with National Enquirer or Star Magazine.
By your logic, the whole subject of globalist new world order totalitarian conspiracy is bunk because there are new agers who are worried about it also (probably because it might interfere with some personal plans of theirs, or as a means of exploiting a bandwagon).
Morgellon's for one, produces thread like things that have been examined chemically and under microscopes. It is very real. Do your research before you blither on.
I used to think floridation worries were nonsense. But there are a lot of doctors and others taking note of problems connected with it.
anyway, I don't need your defense. as for grandiosity look in the mirror. I am not grandiose I say what I think and that after I have looked into something.
I ignored nibiru at first precisely because of the origin of the idea, but you can eliminate Sitchin and Leider et. al., and still have a suspicious situation.
Lately i think the nibiru scenario is wrong, it is the nemesis theory that we should look at (leaving out millions of years), that something that never enters the inner solar system, but is on a tilt and does swing into the Kuyper Belt will send us a lot of asteroids and disrupt all the comfortably calculated and known (for now) orbits or a lot of them of Near Earth Objects, probably already doing it now.
I am sure you did not know, that the Indonesian tsunami a few years ago was immediately preceded by sightings of something very like a meteorite impact in the sea.
To keep public panic out, of course this wasn't mentioned.
Constance has just woke up (like most Americans only noticing wild weather etc. when it his home), but this post of hers could have been written a few years ago.
Did you know the north magnetic pole is headed for Siberia? that is from standard science sources. And the field is weakening. ditto. And the Gulf Stream is near stopped. Check naval temperature maps. That's why England had such a freeze recently.
We now know, modern physics says, that the moon isn't really there unless someone is looking at it ...and other nonsense like that.
There is indeed a risk of the scenario you mentioned leading to an asteroid impact with earth. In view of certain prophecies in Rev 8 I believe it will happen one day too.
However the undersea earthquake was quite sufficient to account for the Boxing Day of 2004. What is your evidence for the claim that it was caused by an observed meteorite strike?
"the Gulf Stream is near stopped. Check naval temperature maps. That's why England had such a freeze recently."
When would that be, Christine? I live in England and remember some cold spells in the last few winters but heck, winter is winter isn't it? If the Gulf Stream really had stopped then we would be 20 or so degrees down (Centigrade), not one or two.
PS To Anon@9.450am re the Moon: Don't believe everything you read about interpretations of quantum mechanics.
In 1913, Niels Bohr proposed a theory of the hydrogen atom (the most simple of all atoms) consisting of one heavy proton in the center with one lighter electron in orbit around the proton. Bohr supposed
That electrons move in circular orbits around the atomic nucleus.
Only certain orbits are permitted.
That in these permitted orbits, the electrons would not radiate (would not create radio waves).
That light of certain colors (and wavelengths) would be created when the electron (of its own power) changed orbits.
These postulates were entirely arbitrary and even violated the established laws of electricity and magnetism. In spite of this, physicists still use the Bohr model (when it is convenient).
Parson's Magneton Theory of the Atom
“By 1915, A. L. Parson knew that the Bohr model of the atom could not be real, so he developed and even experimented on a model of the atom where the electrons were not point-sized particles that orbit around the atomic nucleus. In Parson's atom, the electrons in the shells surrounding the nucleus were rings of charge (with the shape of a toroid or donut). Since the electrostatic charge at the surface of the these rings is rotating, each electron is a tiny magnet. In 1918, Dr. H. Stanley Allen of the University of Edinburgh discussed the arguments in favor of the ring electron, showing how it removed many outstanding difficulties of other theories of the atom. In spite of its superiority, Parson's magneton model of the atom did not become popular (but a modern version, the Lucas model of the atom, has now been introduced).
De Broglie's Model of Matter: Particle-Wave Duality
“About 1924, Louis de Broglie proposed that all particles of matter (from single atoms to large objects) moving at some velocity would have the properties of a wave. Today, most physicists take this farther and say that all material objects actually are waves until they are measured or observed in some way. When this takes place, the wave is said to collapse and turn into an object. An example of this notion of reality is given by the famous Cornell physicist N. David Mermin who says "We now know that moon is demonstrably not there when nobody looks."
Christine is pretty much all about "smoke an mirrors". This inquiring mind ain't buying what she's selling............
especially psalm 150.
A pleasure to agree with you Christine. Absolutely right. (This is Physicist.) David Mermin - with whom I have met and personally discussed these things - is one of the best expositors of how to DO quantum mechanics today, and is also a deep thinker about some of its counter-intuitive predictions. But when he adopts an interpretation of its mathematical formalism he talks trash about the moon not being there when nobody looks.
The point is that quantum mechanics was the first physical theory not to have a 1:1 correspondence between every symbol in its equations and things that were held to be real and out there. This meant that the usual 'realist' interpretation of the equations no longer held. The path was open to weird interpretations of the formalism which could not be tested experimentally. The moon stuff is one such. Quantum mechanics also predicts only probabilistically in some circumstances, ie it doesn't say what will happen next time you do an experiment, but only the proportion s of the various possible outcomes in a large number of repeats. The 'moonies' say that to ask what will happen next time you do the experiment is no longer a legitimate question and we have to put up with nature being intrinsically random. I say that it is the charge of scientists to ask just such questions and that any theory which cannot answer it is incomplete. I believe in what are called "hidden variables" which mediate the ourtcome of the experiments. If you don't look for them then you will never stand a chance find them and physics comes grinding to a halt. It is a self-defeating position. Admittedly, since the 1960s, John Bell and others have shown that any hidden variables must have some pretty weird properties, but so what? Physicists are supposed to thrive on hard problems. Personally I believe that the lack of nerve shown is related to the loss of a culture in which everybody believed the Bible was true (even if they showed little personal commitment to its message), and that the universe was intelligible sense of because it was created by someone intelligent in whose image we are.
Bohr introduced his model of the atom to explain the spectrum of the hydrogen atom. It worked brilliantly, but it was not generalisable to multi-electron atoms. Other early attempts to do this just got bogged down, until in the late 1920 Heisenberg and Schrodinger wrote down the correct equations for arbitrary numbers of interacting particles. (Schrodinger's equation was more physically transparent but Heisenberg's math was equivalent to it.) When a lone particle moves in the absence of the field produced by any others, it moves like a plane wave, just like de Broglie said. But Bohr, Parson and de Broglie were all in a sense put out of business by Schrodinger and Heisenberg. Lucas is simply a clever set of rules for dealing with atoms, cleverer than Bohr but still not universally applicable in or out of atoms like Schrodinger.
The trumpet in verse 3 was probably a one key,
four or five note, (no valves), instrument perhaps comparable to our bugle as opposed to our three-valve trumpet.
The psaltry and the harp, being stringed instruments, would have been tuned either to a given key, as in an arpeggio, or tuned to a set of frequency steps, like any one of the Greek modes, of which there were/are seven, or they could have been tuned chromatically and then selectively strummed or plucked or bowed, but no one really knows. At any rate it probably didn't sound anything like our well tempered tuning which didn't come around until the sixteenth or seventeenth century. Perhaps it sounded more like John Cage music, ( polytonal and/or atonal; polyrhythmic and/or arhythmic, but I doubt that too.
Verse 4's timbrel and pipe surely didn't sound anything like a clarinet as in Klezmer music or an oboe or a bassoon...
Why am I playing your game, Christine ? You don't know what you're talking about, but that doesn't slow you down in the least. On the contrary...
The thing about Psalm 150, which you site, is
that God's people need to praise him. Praise him in any and every way that we can. Loudly, with whatever instruments we have.
Praise him and thank him !
Praise the Lord ! is what Psalm 150 tells me.
there are some psalms that are of such a subject that the music for them would not have been all that bouncy. but when it comes to praise Him with the dance etc. and the use of small drums and stringed instruments, you probably have lively type middle eastern music. Why not?
I don't know what "game" you think I am playing. I don't play games and don't joke around much either.
I am not talking about Kleizmer or oboe the former is a hybrid of many cultures incl. Balkan, and oboe is a deeper tone than was apparently in use. http://www.rakkav.com/biblemusic/pages/instruments.htm
i can't follow his arguments on the notations or other calculation of the tones in psalms, I am only looking at the kinds of musical instruments in use, which are pretty much what is in any middle eastern band, except they may use larger drums.
I can almost agree Christine, as long as necessary corrections are made to your point like so:
Obviously, if Christine keeps cropping up as soon as someone looks at Constance's blog, and doesn't change other than according to her obscure perspective (phases) then something really IS there to be ignored in the first place - her comments, repeated so much for fantasy land science ideas.
If you remember back in 2008 a person on this blog gave information on how Obama was supported by major New Age leaders from the Princeton group. Do a search. If you are intelligent enough, you can do it. If not, just skip this and go on to Christine's diversions.
Then look at a link from May 10, 2011 on this blog which described Slaughter's book on a New World Order. She was at Princeton. Read the reviews at Amazon.
It is a repeat of the quick takeover in Nazi Germany and should scare you more than any yammering about physical changes on the earth or musical instruments used in ancient times.
If anyone else reading this knows what I'm talking about, please comment. I find it very lonely not knowing anyone who is looking at the New Age movement seriously.
Now back to Christine's so interesting diversions.
Frankly since accountability and transparency are out the window, I find this more dangerous than up front world government. sort of like some horror story where all the people who are to correct a problem or protect you are part of it.
from the Amazon.com site,
"Anne-Marie Slaughter asks us to completely rethink how we view the political world. It's not a collection of nation states that communicate through presidents, prime ministers, foreign ministers, and the United Nations. Nor is it a clique of NGOs. It is governance through a complex global web of "government networks."
Slaughter provides the most compelling and authoritative description to date of a world in which government officials--police investigators, financial regulators, even judges and legislators--exchange information and coordinate activity across national borders to tackle crime, terrorism, and the routine daily grind of international interactions. National and international judges and regulators can also work closely together to enforce international agreements more effectively than ever before. These networks, which can range from a group of constitutional judges exchanging opinions across borders to more established organizations such as the G8 or the International Association of Insurance Supervisors, make things happen--and they frequently make good things happen. But they are underappreciated and, worse, underused to address the challenges facing the world today.
The modern political world, then, consists of states whose component parts are fast becoming as important as their central leadership. Slaughter not only describes these networks but also sets forth a blueprint for how they can better the world. Despite questions of democratic accountability, this new world order is not one in which some "world government" enforces global dictates. The governments we already have at home are our best hope for tackling the problems we face abroad, in a networked world order."
This blog has become a perfect example of that. Dear people, it really don't matter if you challenge Christine and her strange ideas. It will have no impact on larger events. Things can be changed, but until Constance makes the effort, I don't know how.
If you actually care about the New Age movement and what it is bring about, post your research here where you can interact with someone who knows what you are talking about.
If you are just waiting around hoping Constance will post some new information that will change your world, good luck. She has two feet and two arms and one brain. She is not the only one who is following the movement.
Skip it Christine. You've had your chance to research the New Age movement and what it is doing to the government and culture.
You'll go back shortly to your disinformation. Frankly whether you are an innocent or an agent, I don't know.
"Yesterday I attended the Dedication of the Bunting Family Interfaith Chapel and the Bunting Family Children's Meditation Room Celebrating Spirituality at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Rev. Rhonda Cooper gave the invocation and not once did she mention the word God or his name. Another chaplain addressed God as "Creator" but he also said that we call Him either God, Jehovah, Yahweh, Allah, and another name or two. There was a definite emphasis on spirituality and its importance to healing. We also learned a little about the history of the big statue of Christ in the main lobby of the hospital. It was placed there and removed because of some strong opposition to its presence and put back because of even stronger opposition to its removal. "
well, its nice there was such strong opposition to its removal, but that it was removed says something about the people running that chapel.
It is one thing to provide a space for whatever, it is another thing to specifically exclude Christ. And that is the real ballgame.
Earthquake Rocks Guatemala City, Mexico
Published November 07, 2012
Anon@1.32pm, physical science is all about learning more about "the fixed laws of the earth and the heavens" spoken of in Jeremiah 33:25-6. Quantum electrodynamics successfully predicts the gyromagnetic ratio of the electron to better than one part in a billion. That's good enough for me.
a great blog, some of the false prophecies in the article on Rick Wiles were hilarious, except the subject of false prophecy isn't funny.
We interrupt Christine to update you on the election results.
In case you've been hiding under a rock, Barack Obama has been re-elected to a second term - winning both the electoral vote and the popular vote.
And now, back to Christine.
Physics is secular, ie it looks at the laws by which the material world runs, but this does not mean that physics is secular *humanist* or satanic. Physicists who are Christians (or Jews) believe that those laws were ordained by a creator God; physicists who are atheist or pagan believe the laws had some other origin (which, frankly, they struggle to explain). But physics is simply the study of those laws; acknowledge that they exist, and anybody can take part. (NB Jews and Christians are more likely to, as they have grounds to believe that the universe is in principle intelligible to man.)
We physicists simply seek to describe the physical world with ever increasing accuracy as research continues. A body either takes 1 second to fall a certain height to the ground, or 2 seconds (to the nearest second). We do not explicitly invoke God to find out which and we do not need to, any more than you need to invoke God explicitly when you switch on your electric light.
Can you state ONE specific finding of modern physics from the recent era of little faith which you question for that reason? You are making some very general criticisms and you should provide some hard evidence.
"Newton feared God. Faraday and Maxwell feared God. Barnes feared God."
Every physicist learns of the work of Newton, Faraday and Maxwell early on at university. That is bedrock in physics today. Not so Barnes - I'm not even sure who you mean, and I hold a doctorate in physics. I've come across a few papers by people called Barnes, as you would expect given the size of the research community today, and I am familiar with Bishop EW Barnes who gave lectures on physics and Christianity in the Gifford series between the wars, but nobody with any physics training would mention a Barnes in the same breath as Newton, Faraday and Maxwell.
Please lighten up, clueless one.
What most people get (and you obviously don't) is that the only thing I am 'mocking' is the fact that Christine completely dominates this blog as if it belonged to her and not to Constance.
your claim of opposing not content but excessive presence is lame.
The MEGA New Madrid Earthquake is Coming Soon
more relevant to the topic of Constance's post
relevant to spent fuel rods, those are NOT all that spent. Seems they have a lot left to them, but in water cooled systems they can't be used up, while in the old liquid sodium system they could be. All nuclear systems should be redone to be liquid sodium cooled, and use up those "spent" rods first. This would recover some of the money spent on the redo.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nA2VyGNKg6k FEMA is worried about the New Madrid Fault, and this video is a sort of tutorial on using google at first.
The new Madrid Fault the sleeping giant incl. description of what happened in the 1800s earthquakes.
Just don't let Karl Rove near that money. He wasted $300 million! Besides, is that the best you can do? C'mon, where's the discussion on the significance of Obama's win? You're discussing belly dancing. Since Obama won, who cares if anyone remembers Mitt Romney? In the end, people could tell that he was a king with no clothing.
As for Obama...does this significantly advance the cause of the New Age Movement or not? Do you people even care? Or, are you still interested in discussing belly dancing? C'mon, Paul, you didn't like me calling you "you people." Why? You all complain about Christine. Just let her rant and leave it be. C'mon...discuss the New Age movement.
Who can get upset now ?
I voted locally and nationally
I lost on more than one front
It doesn't change the powers that be.
At lest with Obama we know what we've got;
a Socialist Freemason.
With Romney it would have been
a Mormon Freemason.
Q)hey do u know who the illuminati chose to be the next president before everyone else or did they not tell you that?
A)Donald Marshall:Obama and Romney are both members of the Illuminati/NWO as is Clinton as is Paul. all candidates are members, each election.
Q)What about Ron Paul?
A)Donald Marshall:all candidates. illuminati never loses the election.

Donald Marshall:................ Kim was responsible for the tidal wave that hit the Fukushima nuclear plant,... Korea and Japan have been enemies for like 1000 years or more and before the "mental" Kim Jung Il died, he wanted to leave his mark. He exploded a nuke below the sea floor and intentionally caused the tidal wave knowing it would mess up the nuclear plant... THEN, the next time he was at the cloning center, the Illuminati/NWO were furious, they had not all sanctioned the attack and Kim said he did not care...

Rev 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
Rev 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Rev 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
Rev 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
Rev 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Rev 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast on October 29th. Up until then, Romney clearly had achieved momentum, as his poll numbers were higher than Obama's. After the mega-storm, all of that changed.
Here is a link to an article from October 26th: "Hurricane Sandy Divine Wind For Obama."
Dr. Ben Livingston ~ The Father of Weaponized Weather
1) By controlling the outcome of the presidential election in favor of Obama.
2) By convincing the masses that this was a natural disaster caused by global warming, it helped push the carbon tax agenda.
If you really want an electoral conspiracy, it's called the Benghazi cover-up and took place involving the liberal media and the State Department.
Scientific research has demonstrated that the ionosphere plays an important role in hurricane dynamics.
Dr. Nick Begich and Jeane Manning are experts on HAARP and its military application. “Put simply, the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio telescope; antenna send out signals instead of receiving. HAARP is the test run for a super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything — living and dead,” they explain.
The U.S. government admits electromagnetic manipulation of weather is a reality. In 1996, during a Department of Defense news briefing, Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen said governments can “alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.”
On a less grand scale, scientist in have worked to create rain in Abu Dhabi’s Al Ain region using giant ionizers.
The Pentagon’s HAARP, or High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, is not required to modify and direct hurricanes, however.
As weather modification expert Ben Livingston, who has a degree in cloud physics from the Naval Weapons Center and Navy Post Graduate School in California has stated that hurricane behavior can be modified by seeding clouds with silver iodide. The University of Colorado and others have published reports on the effectiveness of cloud seeding.
Ben Livingston “seeded clouds and dramatically increased rainfall in his theater of war, creating impassably muddy roads, slowing down the Vietnamese and Korean troops, and saving lives and entire towns from occupation.”
Cohen was badly briefed. I admit to some surprise at that statement, but it is false. If you want to set of a volcano or earthquake, drop a giant nuke into the cone of the fault; electromagnetic waves can't do it. As for cloud seeding, it works only if there is already cloud - you can release as much silver iodide as you like into a dry atmosphere and it will simply fall to the ground.
"Electromagnetic waves then bounce back [from the ionosphere] onto earth and penetrate everything — living and dead." Yup. It's happening to you and me right now, with radio waves from over-the-horizon radio stations. Feels terrible doesn't it?
He was an advisor to both LBJ and the Joint Chiefs of Staff back in the 1960's.
That was at a time when 'cloud seeding' was used (for good rather than for evil) during the Vietnam War to slow down the advance of the Communist North Vietnamese.
What's ironic is that everyone on this blog agrees that the main goal and agenda of the New World Order Global Elite is to reduce the world population down to 500 million people.
There are many ways to achieve this goal - including wars, Eugenics, the slow poisoning of our air, water and food, and also weather modification.
War and eugenics are evils alright. But large scale weather modification of the hurricane Sandy sort is a myth. And food, water and air are fundamental to health. If they are so terrible, how come Americans are living longer than ever before provided only that they take reasonable amounts of exercise?
There is quite enough to be scared about in the economy and the consequences of family breakdown, without adding needless scares.
Try telling that to all of us thousands of suffering people on the East Coast (our lives have been changed forever!) who have NEVER seen anything like what happened to us on October 29th!
Evidently, some people either find it more comfortable (or just prefer to remain in denial) rather than deal with the very real possibiity that weather modification can acually be used for evil purposes.
Slick rhetorical trick, implying that I am without compassion for victims of Sandy when I am saying only that this was a natural disaster not arranged by human agency.
Before you talk about denial, please learn some meteorological physics. Then you will have an understanding of what can and can't be done and why.
Just because you say that it can't be done....doesn't mean that it can't be done!
I believe that as time goes by, you will be proven wrong about this.
"HAARP WEATHER CONTROL could be part of NWO DEPOPULATION PLAN, here's the science."
this site is a bit sensationalistic, but they cite legitimate sources.
"The book’s thesis is that Obama is not just the 43rd president of the United States. Much more than that, he’s an apostle akin to Martin Luther King, Jr. or even Jesus Christ." Check out the story on the internet. http://moonbattery.com/
The last caller was cut off quite quickly. Before he was cut off he said he was an expert on the occult and New Age and testified on it in court. He mentioned by name that Constance Cumbey wrote a book called A Planned Deception.
Does anyone know who that caller could be?
Yes, anybody can be wrong including me. But is a professional physicist less or more likely to be wrong about matters of physics; and why?
I too am content to let time be the judge.
Long Valley Caldera in CA might be ready to blow. BTW any major emergency can be used as an excuse for martial law and Continuity of Government plans to kick in, research the latter online. Plans to suspend the Constitution. suspension to end when? The Onion parodied this sort of thing with a hilarious speech of a non existent congressman asking for amounts of money (the amount classified) and all sorts of stuff in the bill couldn't be read because "classified" and ended with a new Bill of Rights to be voted on by "classified."
From Breitbart (October 26, 2012)
Central Intelligence Agency director David Petraeus has emphatically denied that he or anyone else at the CIA refused assistance to the former Navy SEALs who requested it three times as terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on the night of Sep. 11.
The Weekly Standard and ABC News report that Petraeus's denial effectively implicates President Barack Obama, since a refusal to
assist "would have been a presidential decision."
Gun running to jihadists could dwarf 'Fast and Furious' scandal
meanwhile, the jihadis we trained started turning up everywhere - oops, blowback.
Meanwhile Bush and bin Laden families were in each other's pockets with Haliburton etc. and big gains in the long run from 9-11.
Al Qaeda has been armed by us to fight Assad. the game is, take down Syria then Iran. Oops, Russia ia backing both and China also backs Iran.
Constance notices wild weather, this has been going on all over the world for a while now.
meanwhile, check wikipedia. the Richter Scale has been upgraded, not one to one like some say but close to it, so next you wonder how come a 4.0 did so much damage it is really a 5.0. Is this perhaps an effort to keep the public from panic?
The House Intelligence Committee has also scheduled a hearing to grill Petraeus and National Counter terrorism Center Director Matt Olsen.
The chairman of the House committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, has vehemently criticized the Obama administration for its role in the attack that left ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead.
“Benghazi is not about Libya, Benghazi is about the policy of the Obama administration to involve the United States without clarity to the American people, not only in Libya but throughout the whole of the Arab world now in turmoil,” Baxter told Kudlow. “Benghazi is about the NSC directing an operation that is perhaps shadowy, perhaps a presidential finding, perhaps doesn’t, that takes arms and men and puts them into Syria in the guise of the Free Syria Army.”
I repeat, the best case scenario is that such a war stays regional, but it is far more likely to result in someone taking it home to the aggressor to solve the problem once and for all - nuke USA and some of the main drivers among the EU.
The most devastating attack would not be standard nuclear. It would be a few thermonuclear bombs set off real high up, you might not even notice them but you would sure notice the electromagnetic pulse results the whole power grid would be down, circuits fried beyond repair in all the stuff we rely on, and in the following months millions of Americans dead of the infrastructure total failure effects.
truck and car electronics fail - no food transport. Those water systems not gravity fed but electro pumped? forget it. no fuel. no heat. no communications. first responders? they would have to hike over to the situations.
Since this would be a bad scene if you want to move in and use the infrastructure, we would be better off if the goal was to invade and occupy. Then some nukes used normally followed by massive invasions.
So, start studying preparedness and Russian and Chinese and how to get along with these cultures.
Please don't act as the resident Alex Jones. There is a mix of truth and falsehood in your comments. Without question the USA armed Islamic fundamentalists to fight against Soviet forces and their proxies in some parts of the world. Whether in retrospect that was good policy is unclear, but it is a fact all too seldom stated. What is nonsense is that the Soviet Union was 'lured' into invading Afghanistan. Soviet communism was a thoroughly aggressive entity with its own coherent if evil ideology, and it played the domino game with considerable success. 1979 was simply the next domino. But there are no winners in Afghanistan - in the last 150 years they have seen off the British Empire, the Soviet Empire and will soon see off the USA. That is due partly to the terrain, but it is still a mighty impressive achievement. You wouldn't want to live among those people though.
You also need to understand the difference and the falling-out there between the Mujaheddin and the Taliban.
I do not believe that there is any clandestine US plan to take down the Saudi monarchy, which is the one that counts.
Don't write as if Islam is a bit player that can be manipulated at will by a shadowy elite. Islam has its own highly aggressive agenda and has oil money to fund it. There are more hats in this ring than are sometimes realised.
Finally a personal question, triggered by the way you write about these things: Would you be glad to see America laid low?
no I wouldn't enjoy living through the take down of America, but it is inevitable for two reasons. First, our sins are piling up. Second, all empires fall sooner or later, which is not entirely unrelated to the first since God repeatedly speaks of bringing the high down.
My focus is preparedness to deal with whatever. Consider Jeremiah, I am sure he and Daniel both were viewed as collaborators by some. I am NOT claiming prophet status. I am simply drawing conclusions of likely scenarios and how to properly behave to be godly and do okay in that order of importance when our time comes, and it may be coming soon.
Sure there is some illuminati or generic illuminati plan to ultimately destroy USA as democracy presence, but God has His own agenda and has used His enemies to accomplish His goals. Read through The Bible and see.
There is nothing inherently sacred about the USA or any nation.
If we don't back off the escapades in the Middle East we may be facing our takedown.
Let's have the quote and its context.
you can read several articles dealing with this.
by the way, you can't lure someone into invading some place if they are not aggressive to begin with.
On these occasions you generally retreat by using the trick of saying "if you are so interested then go google it yourself." No - you made the claim, you gave the quote, you cite the source. What would a university tutor who criticised a student for failing to check sources say if the student responded "go find it yourself"?
"by the way, you can't lure someone into invading some place if they are not aggressive to begin with."
I couldn't agree more. What has that to do with the matter at issue of whether the USSR was or was not lured?
as for whether USSR was or was not lured, my point about being aggressive was to clarify that I am under no illusions about their aggressiveness.
but you have to realize that there has been a big chessboard game going on for a long time, which has nothing to do with morals or high values or anything like that. To some extent, we took up vs. USSR where Britain left off vs. Tsarist Russia.
here's another link.
and get ahold of CIA AND THE POLITICS OF HEROIN also get ahold of THE SECRET TEAM by Prouty, both should be available in pdf somewhere I know the latter is.
However, if 29th Oct, 2008 was the beginning of the last 7 years then the mid-point would have been April 11th,2012. Did God mark this day with the ONLY two earthquakes over 8 on the Richter scale up till then?

Brzezinski was playing brinkmanship, the Soviets responded by going in, and Brzezinski then aimed to turn it (quite successfully) into their Vietnam. That is what was going on in people's heads in real time, and while events can be interpreted in the light of history there was no question of 'luring' the Soviets in. Don't mislead.
Brzezinski's views on Islam are extremely foolish, although that is a separate issue.
"you have to realize that there has been a big chessboard game going on for a long time"
When I seek to educate myself, your writings are not the first place to which I turn.
you just admitted what your post denies.
Noah was brought through The Flood not out of it except in the narrow sense of being out of the water in a boat.
Christine: you just admitted what your post denies.
My response: I was contending your claim that the Soviets were LURED into Afghanistan. The interview with Brzezinski shows clearly that that was not his *intention*, but something he was willing to countenance as part of brinkmanship. "Lured" implies intent. I hope this is now clear.
4.3 Magnitude Earthquake Rattles Kentucky - Seven Other States
And playing these games was the utmost in irresponsibility. On the one hand, brinkmanship can go over the brink. On the other hand, look at all the harm done to people.
When I saw Alien Vs. Predator Requiem, when the monsters explode out of the sewer system and start tearing up the street and buildings going after each other, all I could think about was how this must have been what it was like for the average person in Viet Nam, and of course Afghanistan, having a couple of monsters (USA and USSR) going off on each other in the other peoples' back yards.
morals and compassion have been severely lacking on both sides.
now, earthquakes. while some argue we are better at noticing them now, this strikes me as a bit weak. Also, the Richter Scale often referred to is not actually the scale in use, effectively the Richter Scale has been nudged down a notch (though not one to one in all levels as some say) according to wikipedia.
So next time you hear of a 5.0 quake, read 6.0.
This is done of course with a good excuse about it measures things differently, because of different scientific and physical parameters, blah blah. Of course it does. It wouldn't exist if it didn't.
however.....this is a damn good way to keep the public in the dark and not panicking.
things do seem to be getting worse.
Recently I picked up a book called Hitler's Private Library,The Books That Shaped His Life by Timothy Ryback. (Hitler spent much time reading.) It pulls together titles of books Hitler owned which were stored in many different places.
Ryback writes about some occult books which crossed Hitler's path. One in particular was emphasized by Hitler through 66 different marks in the margins, an unusual practice on Hitler's part.
Magic, History-Theory-Practice was written in 1923 by Dr. Ernst Schertel. It was given by the author to Hitler J. H. Kelly had it translated. It is no pop book. It is quite deep and fits in with other heavy occult books I've come across.
If you go to www.cotum.com (catalog of the universal mind), you will find a list of some of the things that Hitler marked off in the book and which appear on the back cover of the book. The book doesn't deal with names, but rather with theory. Don't expect an easy read if you get it in one way or another.
By "predict Afghanistan" do you mean predict the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan or predict a Soviet invasion followed by a bogging-down of them?
You have already changed *your* view by saying his intent was to get them in a bind one way or another. You started by making the erroneous statement that his intention was specifically to lure them into invading Afghanistan.
"playing these games was the utmost in irresponsibility"
Brinkmanship is simply hi-stakes diplomacy. It is Washington's responsibility to involve itself in diplomacy and sometimes to see if the other side is bluffing. If you don't do that then you end up rolling over at every threat whether credible or not, to your nation's detriment. It is well that you do not negotiate on behalf of the USA. My objection to US policy in Afghanistan, then and now, is not its intent but its disastrous miscalculation regarding Islam.
Welcome to the Age of Obama — the Age of Aquarius

Media and political pundits have been burning up the airwaves and spilling a lot of ink since Tuesday’s election trying to explain and point the finger of blame as to why Republicans failed to win the White House. Although some valid points have been raised, most analysts are entirely missing the big picture.
It began with the counterculture war on God, Mom and apple pie in the sixties and seventies. A tied-dyed rebellion against mainstream society waged mainly by young, white, middle class hippies and fueled by psychedelic drugs. It was about eliminating social and religious taboos. The dawning of the Age of Aquarius wasn’t just a catchy anthem, but its utopian social justice lyrics were actually taken seriously by these bell bottomed, anti-establishment freaks as a call to usher in a New Age. (more at the link)
Truth appears in that column. People should save it to remind themselves of the harm done by followers of New Age rather than allow themselves to be distracted by all kinds of distracting information.
This article is good, except the argument that conservatives can save the day by their economic policies.
Have we learnt nothing that politicians simply are not going to bring in cultural change?
Obama used community organizers, so basically a grassroots movement that reached out to people.
Social conservatives should do the same, instead of relying on politicians who have let us down.
For example, 40 days for life has changed more hearts and minds than a single politician.
God is not a Republican or Democrat, time to move beyond them.
Change the culture with your life and start at home.
Stop relying on politicians, on both sides who will eventually give into pressure.

Community View: 'Biblical people' deserve free-speech rights, too
It was implied that radical Capitalism is better than radical Socialism.
The left no longer runs on "community", but in fact on radical individualism that they learnt from the conservatives. It's now all about legislating their morality or lack of it as "rights"
The Tea party reaches out to Fiscal conservatives who are mostly white.
They leave out social conservatives among other groups.
A lot of the blacks and hispanics who voted for Obama are pro-life and pro-family.
The Republicans were just not reaching out to them. They spent on their time on anti-Obama conspiracy theories and their stupidity cost them the election.
I am sorry, but this is a fact.
gods of the Sumerians, Egyptians, Babylonians,
Medo-Persians, Assyrians, and all the gods of the Chinese and the Japanese; the gods of India,
the Norse gods, and no doubt the gods of the Aztecs , Incas and Mayan's as well as the multitude of tribes in North America, and all those Australian, New Zealand gods, were ALL, originally, men and women who lived and died.
Every one you can think of was known to the early Church fathers as having a known gravesite,
whether it was a shrine or a monument.
Almost all of these grave sites were recorded in books which are now lost.
Every one of them; Zeus, Baal, Venus, Mars, Neptune, Saturn, Ammon Ra, Isis, etc etc ...
Not only are they not God(s), they were all nothing more than humans, and dead ones at that.
What a waste of time to worship them !
However, there is one God.
He is the Lord. The Lord is his name.
He is that God of Noah.
He is that God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
He is the God of Moses
He is the God of King David.
He sent a number of Prophets, but
the people killed them one after another,
and went back to worshipping idols, which
were nothing more than dead heroes.
So, He sent his only begotten son
into the world to save anyone in the world
who believes in Him, and He sent him to
eventually judge the world with righteous judgement. That is coming soon.
His son's name is Jesus. Yashua in the
He is one with God.
He is the image of the invisible God.
All power is given to him.
He sits at the right hand of God.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom
This is a growth industry with gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender, intersex, two-spirited, questioning etc.
They use bullying and emotional blackmail to win people over with things like, "if you do not approve of my practises, you are a bigot, you want me dead."
The Episcopal church in the U.S. has already embraced pansexuality.
The Church of England has not, but the new head has indicating that he is open to taking these groups concerns into consideration.
New Archbishop Justin Welby pledges re-think on gay relationships
We are seeing a different Gospel and even a different God emerging.
What's more they are marching globally.
The document titled the Yogyakarta Principles could be called the Magna Charta of the sexual rights movement.
It was created by a team of self-proclaimed experts in international law, including nine UN Special Rapporteurs. The document purports to summarize international rights relating to sexual orientation and gender identity.
It says sexual rights trump religious liberty and free speech rights.
You are right though in that the Republican establishment was afraid to show up a socially conservative. They pushed Romney who wasn't anywhere near social conservative and in fact had a background that was very liberal. They thought this way they could get Democrats to vote for him and con the social conservatives. It didn't work. If the figures are right, some 3 million Republican voters didn't show up for this election.
If you think the article implied what you say it did, it's in your way of wanting to see things and not in what is occurring.
Internationally countries have changed their values because of the New Age movement. The parties are just going along with what they see as the base values of their followers. The article is right. You are wrong.
The things you mention are part of changing the culture in all countries so that they can all be blended into this one world government. It's why there is such a battle against Christianity and Judaism. They want the sense of morality to come from the government.
They've been at this since the early 1900s one document after another. Check out the first Humanist Manifesto which came out in the 1930s. See who signed it. Check out the second one in the 1970s and see who signed it. Because they support each other and the linked organizations, they have extreme patience that they will reach their goals.
By the way, your link didn't work. I checked out the Principles on another site.
this shows intent. or at least hope.
no I have not changed my position at all. there is no difference between entering Afghanistan and being bogged down in it. Not to anyone with the historical reference frame someone with B.'s education and focus (or someone who collects oddball trivia and patterns in history I stumble on while interested in other stuff and remember).
I didn't realize you didn't know that Afghanistan has been the bogdown of empires for a long time. Britain couldn't handle it, I stumbled on that researching Arab horse pedigrees the stallion Dwarka was himself given The Kandahar Star for his performance as a war horse, I think Alexander the Great didn't get far into it, and any densely mountainous place is a nightmare for invaders tactically.
rule number one. do not get into a land war in Asia. rule number two. do not get into a war in Afghanistan. period.
now as for high stakes diplomacy, there is a right way and a wrong way to do anything. And one of those ways has to do with decency. the puppet govt. in Afghanistan could only make for some improvement for the people, and should have been left alone. The Russians were educating girls and the king had ordered that the Buzkashi games be changed as follows, deviating from centuries of tradition:
playing field not over 1 mile or was it a half mile. no barbed wire, knives or guns to be brought onto the field by players. (In Buzkashi a dead goat or calf is picked up and taken from one end of the field to the other or maybe it is and back again, I forget. The rival players and any number of teams can be on the field, must try to get the dead animal from the team that has it and take it the length of the field. This is on horseback. Obviously a distant relative of the game of polo.)
Probably other improvements i don't know about.
Afghanistan has no strategic value worth a dime, the only religion likely to get undermined is islam which shouldn't matter to a theoretically Christian government like ours, and we
bogged our own damn selves down in Viet Nam with the fake Gulf of Tonkin incident, now admitted in declassified documents to have NEVER HAPPENED.
The Cold War was partly a fraud run by the military industrial complex to make money and the Nazi elements on both sides of the iron curtain.
Containment was decided on instead of rollback by precisely the most pro nazi and porkbarrel profiteer connected elements like McCloy.
diplomacy? once stuck with containment I would have run things differently and probably with better results sooner - of course, I would have been assassinated or fired in the real world. JFK only managed that nuclear Cuba thing by backchannel communications with Kruschev on the shared ground that neither wanted nuclear holocaust (not to mention the aftermath). That is not the kind of premise that brinkmanship works on.
Savvy 11:56 AM
Living in Canada, you are probably receiving more of a slanted view as to the reasons why the election turned out the way it did.
Many people here feel that if Obama had not been the incumbent, it would have been much easier for Romney to have won.
50% of Catholics voted for Obama, 70% of Jews did. They have a religion it's called liberalism.
They are both stupid, for voting for the most anti-semitic/anti-catholic President in American history.
You are right that Romney was a weak candidate.
But, only something drastic will wake the two groups up.
What is your basis for that inference? In fact I wrote above that "in the last 150 years they have seen off the British Empire, the Soviet Empire and will soon see off the USA". Admittedly you could not be certain that I was the same Anon who wrote that, but you made an assumption that I wasn't, and it was wrong.
Re intent, it seems that you are unable to understand the difference between deliberate purpose in setting up a situation and and exploitation of a situation that has arisen partly as a result of your actions. People may read what you wrote and decide for themselves.
The Catholic bashers are out of closet..
Do you have a link to this document, because Canon Laws 868 of Article 2 has nothing to do with baptism.
It's about departure from an religious institute.
And Canon 98, 2 has this to say,
§2 "In the exercise of rights a minor remains subject to parents or guardians, except for those matters in which by divine or by canon law minors are exempt from such authority. In regard to the appointment of guardians and the determination of their powers, the provisions of civil law are to be observed, unless it is otherwise provided in canon law or unless, in specific cases and for a just reason, the diocesan Bishop has decided that the matter is to be catered for by the appointment of another guardian."
What on earth are you talking about?
Are you a canon lawyer?
Technical history of baptism and even formal membership does not guarantee anything, "by your fruits you shall know them," and by the sort of things they drool over, which is I guess a sort of fruit.
it is perfectly reasonable to expect a religious body to attempt to retrieve a child who has been inducted into its faith, from a context that is inimical to this. This would play out regardless of the religion of the parents, Jewish, Hindu, Islamic, whatever. Typically these others would be expected to do the same. The power difference however, in some places, might prevent it.
you don't need to be a canon lawyer to read what is written. that is a cheap shot at the poster.
now as to Afghanistan, if he was doing brinkmanship, and was putting agents into Afghanistan in response to the soviet relationship to the govt. there, he could damn well EXPECT them to do as they did sooner or later, or at least HOPE THEY WOULD and that is intention in any legal sense of the word. A provocation was provided what did he expect? Celebrating the predictable reaction to a provocation shows intent.
Ask Constance how this would play in court "sure I did stuff that would attract the person onto the location, stuff he normally wouldn't ignore, and his long desired for by me broken leg resulted when he stepped in the disguised bear trap there, ...bears? no bears in the county, why? .... but no I didn't intend this to happen I didn't cause this to happen....." that would be practically an admission.
An adult is responsible for the choices they make. And only one of his parents was Catholic.
The reason why I asked if he/she was a cannon lawyer, was because he/she said it was implied that a baptized child could not be returned to their parents.
A canon lawyer would know better how how something could be applied and in what situation and why etc etc.
