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.

Is the mark of the beast already here – 2017

Revelation 13:16-17 – And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

An ultra-trendy co-working space in central Stockholm is offering microchip implants to its 2,000 members, in order to help them open doors or operate office equipment. The implants have become so popular, the work space stages regular parties where attendees can get “chipped.

And before you point out that some of these people are getting it in their left hand rather than their right, please remember the bible says that he will force you to take the mark at some point. Right now, those that are taking this mark are doing it willingly. There is a difference.

June 15th, 2017

It’s not only starting to ramp up in the US this year, but overseas as well.

With all of this in mind, I would point out a post I did a few days ago regarding the removal of physical cash in 2018 with the aid of bitcoin.

This stuff has been on the cusp of taking of for nearly a decade now. News agencies like CNN and NBC have been telling us that this type of technology was headed our way for a while now. Well, it is finally here… right on top of us. There are a lot of other examples to look at. For starters there are a few large night clubs both in the states and abroad that use the rfid chip as a way to allow VIP members to skip the line at the door while also having rapid access to the bar. Some of these clubs also have what is called rfid implant parties.

Another example of how this thing has grown is what one spokesperson for an American based company had to say while chipping its employees this year. “When we came across this and saw it being used in other societies, we said why not us?

This means that it is already being used elsewhere to a large degree.

I am sorry, but I guess I am ignorant and I just don’t get it. Why would I be okay with going into a society where they have that much control over the populous? If they don’t like you for any one reason they can just turn off your chip (no more buying… no more selling).

This photo taken 10 May 2002 shows the VeriChip, w

Now, I am in no way suggesting that this rfid chip is without a doubt the mark of the beast. I have no personal way of knowing that for sure. No one does. All I am pointing out with this blog post is to what degree it has built up steam in the last 8 months worldwide.

With that in mind, I can’t help but wonder how many Americans have this implant already. With the drastic rise in articles like this one  popping up recently I wouldn’t be surprised if the average was currently something like 1 in 30.

But hey, what do I know? I’m just ignorant. Keep on keeping on and let big brother make your decisions for you. Because, before long regardless of whether its the rfid chip or not, there is coming a day when he will cause ALL to partake in just such a venture.

Final Point – please note that it says “to receive a mark in” and not “to receive a mark on“.

Revelation 13:16-17 – And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

 

NASA and the bible battle it out over the stars

Twinkle, twinkle little star. How I wonder what you are.

2

You know, I have spent most of my life just simply believing what I am told (as most people tend to do without realizing it). Over the course of the last two years I came to a few conclusions of my own regarding what we are told about the sun, moon, and stars. And sure enough, these days NASA is the major component that tends to tell us what we should think regarding the heavenly bodies above us. I could ramble for a little while on why I think NASA is a joke, but instead… you can just click here to view a few personal reasons why I have chosen to step away from what they tell us.

And with a need to look elsewhere for information about the objects in the sky, what better place to look than my KJV bible. But, before I take a glance at what the word has to say regarding these celestial bodies, let’s take a look at what good ol’ NASA says the stars are.

According to NASA the stars are nothing more than big balls of gas. Stars are born in the nebula of gas and dust. You can tell how hot a star is by what color it is. Red stars are not as hot as blue stars. Our sun is a yellow star. Although the sun, which is a star according to NASA… looks big to us, it is actually just a medium sized star (nothing great about it). It only looks big because the earth is so close to it.

Now, the funny thing to consider about what NASA tells us regarding these big balls of gas and dust known as nebula is the simple fact that it’s all nothing more than a bunch of cartoons. Everything that NASA presents is nothing more than artist illustrations. But, hey… don’t take my word for it. Let’s meet just one out of many of their countless space artists, Robert Hurt. He sure is proud of what he draws and how it so quickly becomes NASA fact (if you draw it, the Hubble telescope will find it). But hey, I didn’t say that. This one comes right out of the horses mouth.

Now, if you do enough NASA artist-illustrator digging you will find quite a few illustrators with the same story. They create their concepts out of “data” and fill in the blanks with their “imagination“. And then, shortly after that they are shocked to find that their imaginations have become the data. I find it so funny how that works.

Okay… so, if NASA’s concept of the sun, moon, and stars is simply speculative cartoon renderings garnished as factual data, is it possible that they have missed the mark and that perhaps there is another explanation for what we see when we look up toward the heavens? Considering the fact that everything NASA gives us is CGI, let’s go with a yes.

With that, what does the bible say?

SSS-Six-Days-5-stage

For starters, let’s just stick with the earth, sun, and moon. First off, we are told by NASA and their sister companies that the earth is moving in five directions at once and that relative to us the sun is the one not moving. Why is it then that there are more than 65 verses that tell us that it is the sun and moon that moves and not the earth?

I Chronicles 16:30 – “…the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved….”

Ecclesiastes 1:5 – “The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.”

Or, what about that one time when God commanded the sun and moon to be still? It wasn’t the earth that stood still. It was the sun and moon. According to gravity and the mechanics of the Copernican Principle of Evolutionary Heliocentric Cosmology… had the earth stopped spinning, everything and everyone would have instantly died. But that’s not what happened.

Joshua 10:13 – “And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.”

Not to mention once again the fact that NASA says the sun isn’t great and is nothing more than a star. My bible says that it is one of the two “great” lights and that the stars were made also (meaning that the stars are separate).

1 Corinthians 15:41 – “There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars…”

Honestly, I have way more to say about the topic of modern cosmology vs the bible. But, I don’t want to overload you in one single post. We will consider this as a part one and I will post on it some more in the near future.

For now, we will conclude with this; NASA presents us with drawings that eventually become considered fact. Absolutely everything we are told is 100% opposite of what the bible says. Bible says great… NASA, not so great. Bible says it doesn’t move… NASA, it moves. Bible says stars are different that the sun… NASA, the sun is no different.

If we as Christians are going to take a stand against something like human evolution by believing that we are all descendant of Adam, then why are we so quick to side with a world of modern science based Gnostic teachers when what they teach is literally the exact opposite of what the bible says regarding creation… not to mention the fact that what they teach is the foundation for human evolution to begin with (something we already admit to be wrong)?

I don’t understand it.

Part one of NASA and the Bible battle it out over the stars rant finally over. I will pick up on this later.

But who are we kidding, right? I clearly am ignorant.

 

The Great American Eclipse of 2017

On Monday, August 21st we have the Great American Eclipse happening. It is a pretty exciting thing indeed to have such an event taking place across the entire continent of North America. With that in mind, I have been thinking on it quite a bit… and honestly, I have one major question.

c-1920

But, before I ask my question we need to clarify how it all works. Bear with me for a moment while I try to elaborate on what we need to know to grasp how these bodies orbit or spin in relation to one another. Hopefully this is written in a way that it isn’t too hard to follow.

So… here we go.

To make one complete rotation in 24 hours, a point near the equator of the earth must move at close to 1,000 miles per hour (1,600 km/hr). The speed gets less as you move north, but it’s still a good clip throughout the United States. With that being the case, for simplicity sake, we will say that the earth spins at 1,000 miles per hour while making one full revolution within a 24 hour period. Within the course of one full rotation, the earth spins a total of 24,000 miles in 24 hours (seems simple enough).

The Moon orbits the earth at a speed of 2,288 miles per hour (3,683 kilometers per hour). During this time it travels a distance of 1,423,000 miles (2,290,000 kilometers) for one full revolution. The sidereal month is the time it takes to the moon to make one complete orbit around Earth. This is about 27.32 days. The synodic month is the time it takes the Moon to reach the same visual phase. This varies notably throughout the year, but averages around 29.53 days.

This would mean that one full revolution for the moon takes close to 27 or 30 full 24 hour periods. This would then further imply that the earth would in essence spin on its axis a total of 27 to 30 times while the moon itself completes one single revolution. In other words the moon during one full 24 hour period would have traveled only a total of 54,912 miles. This is roughly 1,368,088 miles shy of completing one full revolution.

To better grasp what I am getting at, the following video is a great animated visualization of these two bodies and their respective speeds of motion (the earth spinning on its axis and the moon orbiting the earth). This video makes it seem a lot less complicated than I just did, for sure.

In this video you will notice that both bodies are moving from West to East. The earth spins on its axis in an eastward direction. The moon orbits the earth in an eastward direction as well. With that in mind, both of these objects move from west to east in their respective speeds. This is something we can all agree upon I hope. The earth is going one speed. The moon is going another speed. They both travel in the same direction.

Seems simple enough…

There is however a major error that occurs when you consider the two speeds and the fact that the earth is generating a full revolution at more than 27 times that of the moon’s speed. As a result, although the Moon is moving to the east relative to the earth, the much faster westward motion of the sky is carrying it to the west, so despite its eastward motion relative to the center of the Earth, it rises in the east and sets in the west, just like any other celestial body.

To better grasp what I am rambling about, go back and watch that video again. You will notice that although the earth and moon are both traveling eastward, the earth’s greater speed is causing the moon to appear to travel east to west rather than west to east in relevance to the observer from ground level on the earth.

The point here is simply this; although the moon travels from the west in an eastward direction, the earth spins so fast that it causes the observer from ground level to see the moon traveling backwards from east to west instead. With this in mind, go back and watch the animation one last time to see what I am talking about.

Now, assuming that I haven’t lost you… here is the question.

Despite the fact that both the earth and the moon are traveling from west to east, the relative motion of both bodies causes the moon to appear to be traveling backwards from east to west. If this is the case (which it is) please… someone explain to me how in the world is the Great American Eclipse on the 21st is apparently occurring from West to East?

1

This absolutely defies the Copernican Principle.

Again, if the moon due to relativity appears to the observer to be traveling from east to west, how in the world is this eclipse happening from west to east? Someone, please explain to me how this doesn’t totally disprove the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric Cosmological Evolution?

This eclipse is only going to last like 4 hours across the United States. But before we look at the math behind this… let’s let Neil Degrasse Tyson explain real quick how math surpasses our senses. Don’t trust what you can see, touch, or feel… No, instead, trust the math.

With that in mind, let’s look at some math real quick. In order for the moon to defy our senses, no longer appearing to travel from east to west despite the fact that it supposedly isn’t, it would inevitably need to somehow speed up and begin traveling in an eastward direction faster than that of the earth’s spin.

And since it will only take 4 hours for the moon to cross North America on the 21st, this would then mean that the moon is somehow no longer traveling (according to math) 1,423,000 miles in the course of 720 hours. No, instead… on the 21st it will magically have sped up from 2,288 miles per hour to a whopping 69,644 miles per hour so as to defy the east to west observational conundrum.

Hhhmmmmm… I don’t know why, but this bible verse seems to come to mind.

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; – Luke 21:25

Who are we kidding though, I am clearly just ignorant.

To the average observer here on earth the moon travels from east to west. But, on the 21st it will be doing its own thing. Don’t worry about it. Just let the math do the talking. Like Neil Degrasse Tyson said, we can’t trust what we see anyway. The science guys will explain this one away. Keep on letting them do your thinking for you.

What does NASA have to say? 

Wrong!!!

Whatever… rant over.
Space is fake.

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.

unnamed

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.

4198926200000578-4624494-image-a-4_1498032299371

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.

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).
