 LOLI still know some

 LOL

I still know some people who believe in this shit and I'm like, facepalm, what the fuck?

The most common thing I hear is the "full moon makes people crazy". I'm like, "you do realize that the full moon and the new moon and everything in between is basically at the same distance but the shadow changes because of the position in relation to the Sun and the Earth?

Egads. It explains why Trump is actually a threat in this election because stupid people exist.

indira gandhi never did

indira gandhi never did anything without consulting her brahmin astrologers, but that's always been part and parcel with indian rulers, elected or otherwise.


oh, and ronnie also said the current generation was likely the one that would witness armageddon (which he meant in a religious, not a euphemistic, way).

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."

say the same. I don't know from what information Ronnie says so. It's a matter of time when floks will promote our info, but they will do so eventually. It should come about in about 40 years and depends upon how long the masses act upon a certain sequence of actions. Our objective is to let people comprehend for themselves, and how long that will culminate into action will be determined by the masses. It's not atomic warfare--it's social suicide/genocide.

The only possible thing the world needs saving from are those running it.

whether or not you see an

whether or not you see an event as armageddon is purely subjective. predicting some type of catastrophe within the next forty years is a pretty safe bet. the only final cataclysm will be the earth getting swallowed up by a red giant sun, or being broken apart by some other cosmic disaster. humanity may go extinct before that happens--probably will--but there won't be anything spiritual or metaphysical about it, and it certainly won't be anything you can look up in the bible.

This is our take on Armageddon. No attemp to preach in this instance , just merely our explanation.

The book predicts a final end of the civil  and religious systems on the planet, due to specific information that was lost, unknown, or unseen. )I'll try to stay out of what the information is as it's not needed to understand).

The prediction is, the information causes people to migtrate away form religions and government. The prediction is---that people live under this new way of existing for some time. (length of time unkown) Eventually the greater number of the masses want to go back to the previous way, but they don't make it. At that time the writers predict there will be very little of any governments or religions. To get back to the old ways they will need to re-establish the previous way. Being the previous can only exist under regulation of a few that govern they won't be successful at the attempt. In their anger and frustration ( the book says they won't be able to agree)they go at each other and----BANG--they're gone, or, very few left to keep the attempt going. This happens because there is no regulating to keep them from doing it. The "other" floks who seen it coming aand don't want to go back to the previous ways take off and hide until it's over. The one's left are the ones who won't kill each other off and can live without a central regulating system, which according to the writers, was just someone's invention anyway.

This is resemlence of the time of Noah when the same thing happened. There was no central government to regulate and when they became bad enough--Bang--they were gone.

Armageddon is the last end that takes thekm away---by their own doings.

For our understanding of Noah go to the Old Seers Site below in my signature section . I don't say you'll agree but it's our take on it. Smiling

Yeah, I heard that some of his biggest decisions in policy were made with the "advice" of Nancy.

However no one predicted him getting shot....

Of course when that giant hunk of rock is headed for us the religious will be out in droves saying to convert or be lost / or / they will say that the reason we are being destroyed is that we let gays get married to each other.

The problem with any religion is there isn't just one of them. They might have similar stories one in a while, but as a whole, they conflict. So who is right and who is wrong?

Then there is the issue of being vague and then when an incident happens it just happens to fit a part of the puzzle but with out actually fitting correctly. Instead you have to hammer in the piece to make it fit.
