Hidden messages within modern commercials

Today’s post is another one regarding the degradation of our society away from the core values of morality.

While I was in the break room this morning I happened to catch this 30 second car commercial. For one, it shows how no one actually communicates anymore. Instead, people find themselves consumed by their devices (or better put; vices). The thing that I took away from this commercial however was the last thing the driver had to say.

He said, and I quote… “I have a brand new putter you don’t even know about. It’s awesome.” The way in which he said it, implying that it would remain a secret did not sit well with me at all.

Having pointed that out, I like how this commercial is so subtle with its none car insurance related message. First of all, we see the nice car, the beautiful healthy kids and pretty wife, as well as the insane amount of gadgets everyone in the car has. As a result it is very easy to assume that this is what success is supposed to look like.

Because, honestly… this family seems to have it together when you consider those aspects of the visuals we are presented (new car. Tons of expensive toys, etc.).

But, I digress.

Not only is this family disconnected as a result of being connected to their vices. It also implies through the driver’s final statement that there is a level of dishonesty, resentment, or even an intentional withholding of information within the family unit. Despite the fact that this family appears to have it together based on their material possessions, we can clearly see that the spiritual integrity of their relationships as a family is not founded in having open and honest dialogue.

I don’t know about you, but I would prefer honesty over luxury any day. Unfortunately, in this day and age we are constantly force fed this type of subtle propaganda to no end.

The sad truth is that this commercial is a success simply due to the fact that so many people within a family unit can relate to something as subtle as making a several hundred dollar purchase in secret while knowing that every financial decision can and does affect the entire family unit.

In short, if you are a covetous  person who prefers the pursuit of self interest over the values of honesty within your family unit, then this car insurance is for you.

But… who are we kidding. I am clearly ignorant, and I am just overthinking things. What’s the harm in shoving this down millions of people’s throats on constant repeat?

Probably nothing.

Space, the final frontier of discrepancies

I am no scientist, nor do I claim to have any bit a smarts in me wee-pea-brain. But, I can’t help but look at the following images and ask myself if NASA seems to have some continuity issues here. Observationally speaking, the images below don’t really match up.

space1.png

I just can’t help but notice the dissimilarities here. Look at how much closer those rings seem to have gotten while also becoming more in tune with how they would act if gravitational attraction on a cosmic scale were an actual factor. What I mean by that is this… the photo on the left seems to suggest that the rings are somehow offset from the sphere, and as a result somehow defy the way that gravity is supposed to act in the vacuum of space.

Come to think of it, I have looked at Saturn a few times in my life through a telescope. And not once have I ever observed its rings in a geometrical formation around the sphere such as the 2016 NASA photo seems to suggest. No, instead I have always observed it to be much like what we see in the image on the left (offset; defying the centrifugal momentum gravity would place on the rings). Why is it that this inconsistency exists? Why is it that what NASA shows us regarding this celestial body does not match what we can actually observe on our own when looking through a telescope? Apparently, the more expensive your telescope, the more it effects where the rings are positioned in relation to Saturn as a sphere.

Seems logical…

But it doesn’t stop there. If you go back and look at any of the images from 1960 and compare them to today’s NASA images, there are a lot of things that don’t seem to line up. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that the “quality” of a photo changes the way that the image will appear. I understand how focus works. I’ve used a camera. That will however… not change the shape or features of the image to the degree that we see here.

Apparently, when you increase the resolution of an image the shape of that image and its features also change. I didn’t know that was how it worked. How ignorant of me. Speaking of shapes… the science people of today seem to suggest that the earth isn’t actually round at all. None of the planets are, apparently. Nope… they are oblate. And according to good ol’ Neil, the earth is pear shaped, because that makes sense.

If that is true, then why are all of the NASA images of any planet showing us something perfectly round? As you can see in the photo on the left of Jupiter, it doesn’t appear to be a perfect circle (which goes along with what scientists tell us about the shape of the earth and other heavenly bodies today). Why then are all of the photos of every planet including the earth perfectly spherical in shape today? They are either round or they aren’t. They can’t be both. Someone needs to get with Neil and Bill to clear all of that up.

Anyway, I feel like this rant has run its course. I just don’t feel that the drastic differences we see in the above images should exist over such a short amount of time. Something has got to give. Either the images from the 60’s were forged… or the images from today are forged. And since I can look through a telescope on my own and see roughly the same thing that was shown in the 60’s, I am inclined to agree with them. On the other hand, I can drop today’s NASA images into Photoshop and by changing the opacity to show where most NASA “photos” have been cropped, edited, or cloned in some way (making them no longer a photo, but a composite – which is a fancy way of saying, drawing). With that, I am more inclined to believe that the images provided to use today are the ones that are fake.

Having said that, here you go… rant actually over. Space is fake.

Someone explain these inconsistencies, please.

And if your attempt of an explanation is simply Googling one phrase, clicking the first video you find, and sending it to me… nice try, but no thanks. If you actually started looking closer at this stuff, you would be asking these types of questions, too.

But who are we kidding… right? I am ignorant.

Worship Team Drummer Update

I thought I would do a quick update on the fact that I recently joined the worship team with the church that Sarah and I attend in South Austin. With that in mind, here you go…

Honestly, I am not sure how long I have been on the team now. All I can say is that it goes quick. It feels like I have already been the drummer for the church for close to 4 or 5 months. It probably hasn’t been quite that long, but it feels like it.

I am going to be honest and say that, although it feels great to finally be playing drums on a regular basis, it would be a bit more exciting to be thrashing some blast beats or some progressive experiential math rock.

Regardless, it feels great to be part of the team. Don’t get me wrong… most worship style music is pretty basic (I think we have only played one 3/4 song since I started). Being on the team has been a blessing for sure. It feels good to have the opportunity to serve in that capacity. As a result, my guitar made its way out of the closet and got tuned up after like 4 years of just collecting dust. I wrote a song with the worship leader recently (Psalms 61). We recorded it with another friend and it is still in production. Having said that, being on this team has been a big deal for me. I have that itch to write again. I have that itch to record again. Hopefully in the near future I will put together a new EP.

The Dalton Minimum and the Year without Summer

I first learned about solar minimum when Sarah and I went on vacation about a month ago when we went to the Fort Davis Observatory in West Texas.

Solar minimum is the period of least solar activity in the 11 year solar cycle of the sun. During this time, sunspot and solar flare activity diminishes, and often does not occur for days at a time. The date of the minimum is described by a smoothed average over 12 months of sunspot activity, so identifying the date of the solar minimum usually can only happen 6 months after the minimum takes place.

But, what about solar minimums that last for a decade at a time?

The sun apparently goes through just such a cycle. Our last major solar minimum was in the late 1700’s. It was coined the Dalton Minimum. And we are headed for another one.

the-eddy-minimum

As a result of the rapid cooling of the earth, crops were lost, weather patterns were erratic, and earthquakes were rampant. With the mention of such effect this cooling has on the earth’s mantle as well as the resulting earthquakes, it brings me to what is known as The Year without a Summer. While The Year Without a Summer, in 1816, occurred during the Dalton Minimum, the prime reason for that year’s cool temperatures was the highly explosive eruption of Mount Tambora in Indonesia, which was one of the two largest eruptions in the past 2000 years. One must also consider that the rise in volcanism may have been triggered by the solar deficit as there is a high correlation between the interactions.

If you couple these two things together with the fact that we are seeing a spike in volcanic activity today and that we are currently stepping into a new solar minimum one thing is certain. It is no coincidence that recently Yellowstone National Park (which houses the world’s largest volcano) has seen nearly 900 earthquakes in as little as a two week period.

According to experts in this field, the current solar minimum is due to hit its lowest point as soon as the early 2030’s. I don’t know about you, but I find this to be rather exciting when you stop and consider the current world stage as a whole (the Vatican, politics, the economy, moral degradation, etc…).

But, to that end… the bible actually mentions a lot about the sun and it’s circuit over the earth. It talks about a coming day when the sun will no longer give its light. When it will be blotted out because of the sins of the world prior to the second coming of Christ and how the sky will be blackened. Sounds a lot like the effects of the Dalton Minimum if you ask me. Only, this time around scientists are suggesting this one is going to be worse.

But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her lightMark 13:24

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as bloodRevelation 6:12

With all of this in perspective, there is no doubt in my mind that the end will come during my lifetime. Sure, there have been countless generations who have thought that they were the last, and it was not so. Although this is true, I simply need to just point out one thing.

If you want to learn more about the solar minimum that is rapidly coming our way, here is a scientific perspective on what is to come our way along with insights on how the last major solar minimum truly did effect the global economy. And when you stop and consider the world’s current dependence on the economic system for food shipments and distribution (no longer able to self sustain), this next solar minimum is going to be devastating to say the least.

Thanks for reading… and be sure to look into this stuff for yourself. The end is nigh. Have you accepted Christ?

But, who are we kidding? I am clearly just ignorant with an overactive imagination. Nothing like this will happen in your lifetime… maybe.

A family that longs to grow

Well, now that the cat is out of the bag so to speak (meaning that Sarah and I have talked with our parents), I figured I would post a quick little blog about it here. Sarah and I have been together for 7 years, this year. Our life together has been pretty great with very few bumps in the road along the way. And, life seems to be coming together.

With that in mind, we have been thinking about starting a family outside of just us, our two dogs, and one cat.

That’s right… we have been talking about having children.

But, not just any children. God has put in on our hearts to foster and adopt. There are countless children across the world that are in need of a loving home. And when you break it down even smaller to a place like just the county that we live in, the numbers somehow still manage to remain astronomical. With that in mind, we feel that this step in our lives together is one way to show the love of Christ. To show selflessness. To show love, compassion, and care. To make a difference. Although this difference will only be made in the life of perhaps just one child, to that child this difference is a world of difference.

And so, I am writing this blog asking for prayer from those that do pray as we move forward with this journey together. We have picked out a local Christian organization to work with and have begun jumping through the hoops of their program.

We look forward to what the Lord has in store.

I laughed a little too hard

Now, I know that I already posted about this actual speech by Trump and how ridiculous it was… but I had to go back and re-watch it. It was priceless to watch Buzz Aldrin react to Trump’s comments about space (for those of you that may not know, space is fake, and Buzz knows it).

I’m Not saying it’s Aliens, but it’s Aliens

Seeing as to how I do not personally believe in the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric Evolutionary Cosmology, I can’t help but get a little giddy when I see the Trump administration ramping up nearly five decades old agenda. Not only that, but Buzz the AstroNOT also attended this little meeting. Buzz just looks totally fried out of his mind all the time these days. But hey, I’m not here to judge. It could very well be that he just is one of those that doesn’t visually age well.

One thing that Trump said really resonated with me. I find it strange that we live in an era when it is supposed to be illegal for a company or organization to hold a monopoly on the market. And yet, here we have Trump saying that the private sector of space exploration needs to grow even bigger than it already is. And that this growth should be through sister companies that are owned in part by NASA already.

Hmm… Seems logical to me.

Space exploration is not only essential to our character as a nation but our economy and our great nation’s security,” Trump said Friday at a White House signing ceremony, adding, “I think privatization of certain aspects is going to play an important role.

And, when you think about it… it sounds familiar.

If you ask me, this entire thing is just a revamp of the same old agenda to implant the general populous with the idea that an alien invasion is possible. And when you think about it, that makes sense when you consider the chaos that will unfold in the last days from the Wrath of God and Tribulation. And what better way to explain away supernatural things like angelic beings, vanishing people, and two witnesses that die and rise again than by insisting that it all comes down to aliens rather than Christ and his war against the fallen sons of God.

They have been gearing this message up for a long time now. And as we see the phase that the world stage currently stands on, one can’t help but laugh at how perfectly timed it is for the current President to ramp things back up in the fight for a so called Space Race.

But hey, don’t take my word for it. Here is the video from Bloomberg.com.

There is coming a day when the world will be faced with proof of alien life. I am here to tell you that it is a ruse designed to deceive you into discarding God. If you honestly think that any civilized being is going to be able to travel millions of light years, let alone one light year, penetrate the heliosheath, land on earth… and magically be able to handle the various gravitational masses they may physically encounter that could crush or expand them to death… well, you aren’t actually thinking.

We are told that earth is moving in 5 directions at once, most of which are at god like speeds. There is a reason most of this stuff finds itself in the realm of fiction, people. They are ramping up the excuse. And this is it.
