OSIRIS-REx camera and a gorgeous photo

First off, the article is titled OSIRIS-REx tested its cameras by taking a gorgeous photo of its home planet. So, the craft took a photograph… I think. Or wait, an “image“. Which is it? The powers that be either took a photo or it is what NASA and its sister companies love to call “a composite“.

Acording to the article, OSIRIS-REx launched in September 2016, using Earth as a slingshot the following year for help redirecting its path to Bennu. During the maneuver, it turned its mid-range scientific camera MapCam towards the Earth, snapping some pics of our planet in space.

But, rather than point out the obvious fact that the above photos are in all actuality, not photos at all, I want to address something else that I have addressed in the past. But first, I find it ironic that both NASA, its sister companies, and those who post on their content are double tongued. Either these “images” are actual photos or they aren’t. It’s that simple.

The above image is a composite of photographs captured on October 2, 2017. The images were taken using three color filters, then the contrast on the moon was stretched to make it brighter and more visible. 

In short, we are told “photograph” while they simultaneously imply tampering to a large degree. By adjusting the exposure on the “photo“, you can see the light directive given to the earthen object. This is unnatural as we all know that light bends toward the observer in some cases as well as spreading outward the longer the distace (in this case we are led to believe the observer is a man made object 3,180,000 miles from home with the ability to be controlled and manipulated wireless from that great of a distance with nothing but the empty vacuum of space as its medium for transiting a signal).

One, why doesn’t the light bend toward the camera? Two, if it is multiple images overlaying one another, how are the clouds on earth from that great of a distance so clearly defined? Three, what in the world are the variations of black-static-grey strips if not a tacky slack photoshop job?

stufftoblowyourmind-23-2015-08-osirisisis-feature

Now, with all of that aside I want to point out the real reason why I wanted to address this subject specifically. OSIRIS-Rex means – Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, and Security-Regolith Explorer. In short, I find it funny that the first word is “origins” explorer.

With that, we are going to leave it to NASA (Hebrew meaning – deceiver) with finding our origins with the help of Osiris as he flies through space to reach Bennu, the bird.

Osiris is the Egyptian Lord of the Underworld and Judge of the Dead, brother-husband to Isis, and one of the most important gods of ancient Egypt. The name `Osiris‘ is the Latinized form of the Egyptian Usir which is interpreted as ‘powerful’ or ‘mighty‘.

Bennu on the other hand was a self-created being said to have played a role in the creation of the world. It was said to be the ba of Ra and enabled the creative actions of Atum. It was said to have flown over the waters of Nun that existed before creation, landing on a rock and issuing a call that determined the nature of creation.

But hey… science is clearly unbiased when it comes to religious or spiritual connotations… right?

Genesis 1: 1-2In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Don’t be fooled. Space isn’t a series of photos. It is a series of artists using programs like photoshop to push their agenda (and in this case it happens to be that of Pagan worship).

2 Timothy 4:4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

If you want to believe in their nonsensical photoshop and the promotion of Pegan gods, you go right ahead.

Space is fake.

Random mind explosion in the shower

I had a thought while staring into the abyss motionless under the warm running water of my shower just now, sparking this random and unplanned blog post.

Here we go…

When many of us grew up, there were nine planets in the solar system. It was like a fixed point in our brains. As kids, memorizing this list was an early right of passage of nerd pride: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. In August 2006 however the International Astronomical Union (IAU) downgraded the status of Pluto to that of “dwarf planet“. This means that from now on only the rocky worlds of the inner Solar System and the gas giants of the outer system would be designated as actual planets. With that in mind, according to the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric evolutionary dogma there are only 8 planets in our solar system.

The reason Pluto is not consider a planet is simple. It has not yet cleared the neighborhood of its orbit in space. Because it does not follow this rule, Pluto is no longer considered a planet.

In short, Pluto is not a planet in our solar system. There are only 8 planets.

Now, since we exist on one of these so called planets there are only 7 observable planets for us to see in the night sky.

2000px-Planets2013.svg.png

Assuming I haven’t lost anyone yet, here is the part where I might. But whatever, I am diving into it anyway.

From my reading of the Bible I have concluded that there is a distinct correlation between the stars and the angels of heaven. For example, in Genesis 2:1 we find that God created the heaven and earth and all the “hosts” of them. And with that, there are countless scriptures where the phrase “the hosts of heaven” is referring to angels and stars as one. On top of this we have epic verses like the following one that clearly suggest that stars, can, will, and have… fallen to the earth, and that those stars are in fact angels.

Revelation 9:1 – And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit (and to the star was given a key).

I could load this blog post down with scriptures to back this view, but rather than doing that I want to keep it short by getting to the point regarding the planets of our solar system specifically, from a biblical perspective.

Pinnacle.jpg.990x0_q80_crop-smart

Based on the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric evolutionary dogma there are only 7 observable planets. What makes us know that they are planets is their orbit. Every planet in our solar system except for Venus and Uranus rotates counter-clockwise on their axis as seen from above the North Pole; that is to say, from west to east. West to east however is the official direction in which “all the planets” orbit the sun.

In short, all of the planets travel across our night sky from west to east. With that said, for an observer on the earth, all celestial objects move from east to west with these 7 objects being an exception to the rule (over time traveling in the opposing direction).

Now… for the epiphany I had in the shower.

In ancient times there was what is called the gods of the five wandering stars. They were named Phainon (planet Saturn), Phaethon (planet Jupiter), Pyroeis (planet Mars), Eosphoros (planet Venus) and Stilbon (planet Mercury). In ancient Greek they were depicted as youths diving into the earth, something that matches exactly with several biblical depictions of stars either falling or being cast to the earth.

The two remaining planets Uranus and Neptune are invisible to the naked eyes which is why they were not known as the 7 wondering stars.

What I am getting at is the simple fact that the bible is not the only place where the stars are attributed as being living beings with the capability of falling to the earth while at the same time being garnished by the Greeks with the phrase “wondering stars”.

With all of that laid out here is the biblical point I am trying to make.

Jude 1:5-13And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

So here is my question…

If the stars are in fact not beings, but just big balls of gas, dust, and rock… why does the bible suggest that these wondering stars have stepped out of their intended habitation and in turn will be punished with both everlasting chains and eternal darkness for stepping out of line?

Why would God take the time to punish an inanimate rock?

NASA, putting it in our faces on purpose

Other than the fact that the Firmamentum website is literally something out of 1998, like Xanga… but worse, I find it rather humorous that NASA has chosen to name this newfangled device the Firmamentum.

furm.png

But, aside from the other fact that this new overpriced autoclave that NASA is having made, I want to point out something else. I freaking love the name of the company they are hiring to make this thing. Tethers Unlimited apparently has a few contracts with NASA according to their website.

If you don’t already understand the irony in both the company name and the product name, then please… let me spell it out for you. They aren’t being suspended by gravity in the vacuum of space. No, they are being tethered. HHhhaaaahhahahaha…

The international space station is being “tethered” (or hung by a rope or wire) from the firmament.

image-06-large

Pslams 19:1The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

And lastly, if you are a NASA fan and don’t know who Wernher Von Braun is, then I think it’s about time you just go ahead and throw that pop culture NASA shirt in the trash.

Space is fake.

SpaceX: more like FakeX

I’m sorry, but SpaceX is a joke.

Yesterday evening and into the night they launched yet again another SAT into geostationary orbit. Good for them. I have watched every single launch. And when I have had the opportunity I have watched them live. And sadly, I am surprised to see that more people are not realizing that it is all a bunch of nonsense. This company is using sleight of hand to trick people into thinking they are doing something they are not. Every single launch they have done shows the exact same type of footage to the letter. When the reusable capsule rocket ascends for landing the camera goes out (either in total or just long enough to disrupt the landing sequence). When the SAT is released and opens up it is only shown for a split second with an excited crowd cheering in the audio background noise. The shot is just long enough that you don’t see anything at all.

It is all a joke.

And if you think I am just full of it, look at the following launch images from SpaceX and ask yourself, do you honestly see these images and think to yourself that these rockets left the atmosphere?

spacex.png

I think not. They launch up, reach roughly 20 miles high and then careen downward (not up and away, but rather; around and down). If you look at those shots and can honestly tell yourself that these rockets reached beyond the exosphere then you are in denial. That arch is literally taking place in the stratosphere, people.

And all I can say to that is this;

2 Peter 3:2-7That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

But, don’t take my word for it. Just ask good ol’ Bill what he thinks.

I have an honest question about Faith and Science

I just wanted to take a moment to ask a genuine question.

As a Christian I have found that pretty much most, if not all, Christians will agree that the bible is the truth. These same bible believing Christians will also agree with one another regarding the creation account (to an extent… which is what brings up my question).

What I mean by that is this.

Most Bible believing Christians will agree that God created man, placing him in a real garden. He then put man to sleep so as to take a rib to create woman. Eventually, they sinned against God and were kicked out of the garden. With that, the concept of evolution is thrown out the window. Most Christians that I meet will instantly agree that Darwin, the Geologic column, and the theory of evolution are totally bogus. This theory defy the bible and the creation account (no question about it). When we look deep enough at evolution one can quickly see the lies.

For example, everyone has heard of the missing link. If we came from primates, then where is the link between us and them? But it doesn’t stop there. If a rock turned into a fish, and a fish turned into a lizard, then show me a missing link there. If a lizard turned into a cat, show me the missing link there. And honestly, you can’t (the reason why is due to the fact that there is a missing link between every kind of species… which is why evolution is still just a theory in the eyes of most Christians).

And since evolution is piggybacking on the geologic column, so many Christians are quick to point out the fact that there are major issues with it as well while defending their faith in the validity of scripture. For example, if those layers were formed over long periods of time, then why are there trees protruding through different sections into other sections? Or, why does carbon dating seem flawed after going back only a few thousand years? You can record the fur on an animal against the skin on the same animal and come up with a different set of numbers by thousands of years.

galapagos-darwin-finches

And when it comes to the Galapagos Islands and Darwin, Christians are so quick to band together regarding the difference between adaptation within a species and evolution itself. There is a difference for sure. So, here is a total side note that is separate from my upcoming question. The two men who popularized a philosophy that is considered a direct attack on the foundations of the church are both honored by being buried in the foundations of a church (just look up Westminster Abby).

So, here is the question I am asking in part…

If we as Christians are so quick to defend our faith and the Bible when it comes to the creation account of Adam, Eve, and the other variations of life… then why are we so quick to jump on the bandwagon of cosmological evolution by standing up for the very same set of philosophers of today who have their foundations in the works of people like Darwin and Arthur Holmes (the very people we are fighting against)?

Because, at the end of the day all of this stuff is piggybacking off of one another. You don’t get evolution without the Copernican Principle. You don’t get the Copernican Principle without the Big Bang. If you take away the Copernican Principle (which in my eyes is an absolute disordered account of the creation story in the Bible) you will have automatically removed the Big bang theory. If you remove the Big Bang, then evolution is obviously a lie.

maxresdefault

I just don’t understand it.

We as Christians agree that evolution is not true. But on the other hand we are so quick to agree with the scientific community regarding their discoveries of distant galaxies, other habitable planets orbiting gas giants, and the ever expanding reaches of space.

How is it that we have missed this one?

Everything that modern astronomy is focused on today comes down to the Big Bang theory (which is at the end of the day, the foundation of the Copernican Principle… which feeds into the Geological Column… which feeds Darwin). When you hear of a planet being discovered, or that nebulas are were stars are born, or that the galaxy is slowly moving away from itself… all of those things are based on the Big Bang theory.

Why then, are we so quick to get excited and agree with man regarding creation when the foundations of mans interpretation of creation itself defies scripture?

My Bible doesn’t say that the stars are born in clouds of gas. My Bible says that the stars are the angels of heaven and that they have all already been numbered and named. My Bible doesn’t say that the sun is also a star. No, it says that the sun is separate from the stars. My bible doesn’t say that the sun was created first (which is how it would have to be under the Copernican Principle). No, my Bible says that the earth was made first. My bible doesn’t say that the earth is moving. No, it says that the sun is moving.

With all of that said, let me ask my question one last time.

Why are we as Christians so quick to defend the idea of Cosmological Evolution while in the same breath agreeing that the Big Bang is not how it happened?

1-CMB_Timeline300_no_WMAP

But, who are we kidding… right?

I clearly am just ignorant and we really do exist in a world where it is okay to agree while simultaneously disagreeing. On one hand, we as Christians agree that the biblical account of Adam and Eve was real. But then, on the other hand… perhaps the creation of time, space, and matter itself was all just metaphorical. Because, you know… the wisdom of modern man supersedes scripture by placing scripture more and more into the realm of allegory rather than truth.

If the Christian world has already done enough homework to realize that Darwin, Holmes, and the Big bang are nothing more than the delusion of an Anti-Christ spirit, then why have we stopped there? As a Christian, if you actually stop and do the same type of homework regarding the cosmos, you will find the same line of reasoning that favors evolution coupled with a string of lies told by man.

I think it is time we stop trusting in the wisdom of man and actually dig into the scriptures to determine what the word says regarding the cosmos.  The thing that I find ironic is that some Christians actually use scripture to defend the Big bang.

Well, God said let there be light… and bang, it happened.

As cool as that sounds… it is the very thing that feeds the fact that we are still to this day fighting against the foundations of Darwin and Holmes.

You can’t have one without the other.

And if we agree that they forged lies regarding evolution, then as Christians why believe the very same set of people regarding the cosmos?

I just don’t get it.

Because, at the end of the day… when you actually stop and look at who is telling us what regarding the cosmos, you start to see things like this, or this.

With that in mind, why do we so quickly side with those in opposition of scripture?

It’s all a coincidence – Jesus would have loved NASA

Silverstein named the Mercury program and the Apollo program after mythical Greek gods while he was serving as NASA’s Director of Space Flight Programs in the late 1950s. But that isn’t the only Greek god based references that we seem to have with NASA. For example, one of Saturn’s moons is named Pan (not to mention the fact that Saturn is the Greek god Cronus). I just find it funny that NASA’s early work was littered with this type of dogma. For example, the 1966 mission was named Gemini (Castor and Pollux, the Greek gods born to Leda and Argonauts). And you had the Saturn launches in the 1970’s.

Of all the NASA programs, Apollo is the one that seems to be the most infamous (and for good reason).

So, who exactly is Apollo?

apollo-chariot-1

Apollo is the god of many things including, the sun, music, and light and knowledge. With that in mind I find it rather ironic that Satan meets this exact same description. The bible mentions similar attributes of the devil. For example we find in Ezekiel that Satan played a few different types of interments as part of his role in Heaven and the garden. Then, shrouded as a messenger of light he told Eve that he could help her gain knowledge.

111.png

There are a few other odd coincidences that I would love to point out real quick when referencing Apollo, NASA, and the bible. For one thing I find it rather hilarious that Apollo is riding down from the heavens in the clouds on a chariot of exactly four horses. Because, last I checked there is this part in the bible where we have the 4 horsemen and the rider that comes down on them.

Not to mention the fact that Jesus has 12 disciples and Satan is all about mirroring the things of God. And what do you know… there were 12 Apollo missions.

What a coincidence!

gods.png

But seriously though, in the bible when Eve was beguiled by the serpent into eating the fruit, the Hebrew word which means “to deceive” in that portion of text was none other than “Nasha“. And the Hebrew word which means to “take away or remove” is another pronunciation of the same word “Nasa“.

With that, NASA is here to deceive the world by taking away or removing God through an indoctrination of modern day “knowledge” while disguised as a barer of light with the intent of bringing in an era of technological advances for the development of mankind as a species (you know… evolution).

Jesus would have been all about the space program… don’t you think?

Space is fake. Anything beyond the stratosphere is nothing more than speculation and artist illustrations. If you want the truth, you need to look at what the bible says. Because, last I checked the bible said the stars were the angles… and that one day they were going to fall onto the earth. Please explain how that is possible if the stars are billions or trillions of gazillions of light years away while also being so massive that they would consume the earth before ever actually coming close to it.

Strong delusion much?

But, who are we kidding… right? I am just ignorant and Jesus really would have loved modern day cosmology and the craftiness of mans modern day deception.

 

The Netflix Original: Atypical

This post is my personal reflection on having watched a few episodes of this show.

maxresdefault

Over the course of the last 4 or 5 months I have almost completely stepped away from television entirely. When I say almost, what does this mean exactly? Well, for anywhere between an hour to an hour and a half each day that I go to work I have a lunch break. There is a television turned on 24/7 in said break room. With that, I occasionally get my dose of nonsensical shows like Judge Judy and the Jerry Springer Show. Generally however, I do not watch the television in the break room. I rarely ever find myself glancing at it unless it is on something like global news or the local weather.

Having said that, I honestly do not remember the last movie I went to the theater to see. I think it might have been Interstellar (though I could be wrong), which should tell you something about my slow decline away from mainstream media considering the fact that it came out in 2014.

In the midst of this personal trend choice I have stepped away from traditional social media as well. Outside of this blog, my bandcamp account, and my Etsy store, I don’t really interact online very much. No more Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Tumblr. I just didn’t have time for it. But, honestly, not having time for it isn’t the real reason why I have started to step away from all of it.

2

I have started to step away because I am becoming sensitive to what I take in. Most everyone knows and understands the phrase “desensitized“. And as a culture, watching movies, trolling social media, and television has desensitized us in a much bigger way than most of us are willing to realize or admit.

I have gotten to where I realize that the degradation of our society and the demoralization of our Christian values is a result of the desensitization of our society itself through the aid of mainstream media.

Now, I realize that what I just said is in no way a ground breaking truth. I think deep down most people already know and realize this fact, plain and simple. The only difference is that I am trying to do something about it on a personal level with Christian based intention.

So… what exactly prompted me to post this blog and start getting on this rant about some silly Netflix show?

1

Well, I was actually in the middle of writing a science blog about how space is fake, but… I recently broke the rhythm I had going by watching a few episodes of a Netflix original show called, Atypical. I think I managed to watch three episodes in a row.

What prompted me to watch this show was the content and the relevance is currently has to my life.

Sarah and I are in the processes of becoming foster parents. This means that we have the potential of caring for a child with special needs. With that, this show seemed like it was worth having a look at. With that, let’s take a look at what this show is all about.

Atypical is a heartfelt comedy that follows the struggles of a family as they raise and care for their teenage son with autism. Seems wholesome enough, right?

netflix-atypical

Sadly, this is not true. After having watched just three episodes I quickly saw a trend within the show that did not settle well with me as a Christian. Although, on the surface this is a loving show that gives the general public a glimpse into the true realm of what it means to care for a child with special needs, it had a much deeper story than that. One that is easily and intentionally overlooked.

What I mean by that is this; If we take away the core story of autism, what are we left with?

Sadly, the answer is degradation and the desensitization of our society. This show promoted drug use, premarital sex, adultery, theft, lying for the benefit of self interest, and more. As silly as that sounds it is absolutely the truth. Please tell me how something like that can be calcified as wholesome?

Some of you may be wonder how I came to this conclusion. Seems a little harsh wouldn’t you think? Well, the way that the show is laid out is quite nice. You see, when we are presented with these sins within the show, we are presented them in a way that implies that these sins are justified as a result of the daily struggle associated with the challenges of raising a special needs child (It is okay that you sin. life is tough and it is natural to need a release from time to time).

There is a constant sexual tension between almost all of the main characters playing minors in the show. In one scene they are buying condoms. In another scene they are at a strip club to get a look at breasts. The list honestly just seems to go on and on.

Basically, what this show told me had a lot less to do with autism and a lot more to do with the fact that it’s okay that you live in sin. Again, we understand that life is hard and as a result it’s natural to fall into these types of things. The lust of the flesh is real and life is hard. So, why fight it? Just give in and let life happen. That is what the story of this show really came down to.

So, with that… I can’t help but look at what this world currently deems to be wholesome. All it does is affirm the entire reason why I have started to step away from it all in the first place.

Because, let’s face it. If I am okay with something as wholesome as constant sexual tension between minors, promoting drug us, theft, and adultery for the sake of saying these things just happen because life it tense… then where do I really draw the line?

What we think become what we say. And what we say becomes what we do. Since it starts with thought, shouldn’t I take every thought captive in Christ?

2 Corinthians 10:5 – Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

At this point some people will probably tell me I am being over dramatic. I’m sounding like a morality Nazi. And honestly, maybe I am. Having said that, I am in no way condemning anyone (christian or otherwise) that enjoys going to the movies, watching television, or listening to music that promotes the desires of the flesh. Every believer is in a different place and I understand that. However, all I can account for is myself. When it comes to that great day of judgment I am going to have to take account for Me.

With that, it seems like I ought to be more sensitive to what I taken in rather than more desensitized. And the more I step back and actually evaluate what the world is trying to force me to take in, the more I realize that it isn’t good in the most subtle of ways.

Because remember, shows like the Netflix original Atypical aren’t in any way subtly making you comfortable with your daily sins, leading you to have an unrepentant heart because you grow to feel that daily sin is natural and okay. No, in fact it is quite the opposite.

3.png

Constantly pushing the sins of others in my face while presenting them as the natural reaction to daily struggle is the last thing that I need in my daily walk with Christ. All that will lead to is complacency and a desire to compare myself to those around me rather than comparing myself to the one that maters, Christ.

But, what do I know. I’m over reacting… how ignorant of me.

Aytpical is a super heartfelt and wholesome show. You should go watch it.

We are reaching a place in society where you are either hot, cold, or riding the fence. And if taking a side by choosing to no longer ride the fence makes me seem delusional, then so be it.

This show, just like everything that seems to be placed in front of us these days is nothing more than a degradation of Christian value and moral.

Rant over.

Final summary: atypical – a show about the justification of sin in daily life.
