As if there are not enough things to think about and try to avoid worrying about, here are some other things to mull over as to their significance.
With all the hoopla about global warming and climate change; isn’t it interesting that in August a project known as CERN will start operation in Switzerland. In case you don’t know what CERN is, it may be worth reading up on it. CERN is the most powerful atom-smasher ever built. It is buried more than 300 feet underground and consists of a track 17 miles in circumference and cost 5.8 billion dollars to build. In many respects it is a huge amusement park for scientists attempting to prove and disprove theories in physics of no use whatsoever to most people.
There is concern that when this contraption gets fully powered up, it might just burn a hole through the earth and vaporize it. There are some who believe the thing has already been in operation and caused the volcano in Chile earlier this year. Whether this is true or not, this “toy” is not something which should be dismissed as harmless fun for bored scientists. We better hope and pray that the vehement denials by all parties that CERN could not possibly do any damage to earth are legitimate. If the scientists end up being wrong, I guess global warming will be the least of our concerns.
In Elbert County, Georgia is found a granite artifact sometimes referred to as the “American Stonehenge”. Six granite slabs almost twenty feet tall and weighing more than 100 tons with a capstone on top. This unusual artifact is known as the Georgia Guidestones for engraved in it is a message consisting of ten universal guidelines written in 8 modern languages, plus a shorter message on top in 4 ancient languages. The five upright slabs along with the capstone are astronomically aligned.
The monument was created by an esoteric Christian group who identify with the Rosicrucian movement. I am not about to get into this movement, but suffice it to say it is extremely controversial and mysterious to its very roots. Some very influential world leaders have been aligned with offshoots of this group and it represents what to many is the very description and definition of the Antichrist’s kingdom coming to this earth. This group ulitimately leads one to the Illuminati.
Here are the ten universal guidelines:
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature*
Guide reproduction wisely – improving fitness and diversity.
Unite humanity with a living new language.
Rule passion – faith – tradition – and all things with tempered reason.
Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a one world court
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
Prize truth – beauty – love – seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not a cancer on the earth – Leave room for nature – Leave room for nature.
The very first one presents quite a problem for us since there are well over 6 and ½ billion people on this earth at the moment. To accomplish the number one guideline, 6 billion people would have to die. Not a pleasant thing to think about is it.
5 DISASTERS HEADING FOR THE UNITED STATES
What do the following have in common:
40-Mile-Long Mudslide, Washington State
Magnitude 6.9 Earthquake, Mississippi River Valley
195-MPH Hurricane, Florida
Climate-Changing Ocean Disruption, North Atlantic
These are all possible disasters which could greatly impact the United States. Some of these are very well known and some are unknown by all but the real scientists in this country. Needless to say there is little that can be done to prevent these things from happening other than prayer. It is interesting to see that there are possible huge disasters which could impact just about every part of this country. For those with unending curiosity about natural disasters, this is a fascinating article.
LACK OF SUNSPOTS SIGNALS GLOBAL COOLING
While the vast majority of scientists and concerned citizens of the world are obsessed with the looming warming that is supposed to happen to this earth; there are some scientists who are far more concerned about the lack of sunspots which should be happening, but are not. Without going into a scientific discussion of sunspot activity cycles and their meaning; suffice it to say there is growing concern about the lack of activity even unto the present.
While many lay awake at night worrying about rising ocean levels and melting sea ice, they should be worrying about glaciers overtaking Canada and short growing seasons in the United States and Europe. Most people do not know that in 1816 northern Europe, eastern Canada and much of the northern United States had a year with no summer. Crops failed and millions died because of a dramatic cooling which took place.
This was all due to one volcano, Mt. Tambora, erupting in what is current day Indonesia. There were heavy snows in June, ice in the rivers of Pennsylvania in July and food shortages everywhere. The biggest volcanic eruption the world had seen in 1600 years caused more damage to the earth’s population at the time than all the exhaust fumes from every vehicle ever could. Perhaps we should consider praying for the sun to hurry up and get busy spotting again.
At any moment of time this world could change suddenly and all of us living on it would be forced to change too. What if we suddenly lost all that we take for granted and the conveniences that we never think about not having were useless and worthless. Could we still live the more abundant life without television, air conditioning and computers? Could we still live in a state of perfect peace without automobiles, cell phones and text messages?
Our grandparents and great grandparents did, for they never knew anything else. Could we, who have tasted of the sweet wine of modern convenience and technology step back in time, if we had to, and be happy without any of it? God is supposed to be our sufficiency and His grace, mercy, love and peace are supposed to be what make our lives worth living. Once in awhile it is good to stop and consider how temporal our material possessions really are and how our real life should not consist of material things which we possess, but the eternal spiritual things given to us by God.
