According to Wikipedia, Norwich University is :a private, Military College of Vermont located in Northfield, Vermont (USA). “It is the oldest private military college in the United States. The university was founded in 1819 at Norwich, Vermont, as the American Literary, Scientific and Military Academy. It is the oldest of six senior military colleges, and is recognized by the United States Department of Defense as the ‘Birthplace of ROTC’ (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps).”

According to Wikipedia, four-star General Mark A. Milley has served as the 39th U.S. Army Chief of Staff since August, A.D. 2015.

“Milley attended the Belmont Hill School. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Princeton University, a Master of Arts degree in international relations from Columbia University, and another Master of Arts in national security and security studies from the U.S. Naval War College. He is also a graduate of the MIT Center for International Studies Seminar XXI National Security Studies Program.”

Clearly, General Milley is not simply a Rambo character.  His education and degrees indicate that he’s a very intelligent man.  As a “leader of men,” he should be adept at communications and, presumably, very sensitive to the the limits imposed by “political correctness”.

Russian Video Depicts Obama as Devil


The Washington Times (“Obama depicted as murderous devil in downtown Moscow“):

 

“A video depicting President Obama feasting on the souls of a half-million people was reportedly projected onto buildings in downtown Moscow early Friday along with a message calling for him to be tried in international court.

“Video footage uploaded to YouTube shows a computer-generated version of Mr. Obama picking up little spheres colored in the national flags of several countries and placing them in his mouth.

“The president’s face gradually turns red and horns sprout from his head as he begins to chew and symbolically destroys the populations of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Ukraine and Libya.”
Obama is not only despised by many Americans–he’s also managed to antagonize, alienate  and even terrify some people around the world.

The significance of this story is not that some private Russians pulled a “prank” by projecting an animated video of Obama on some building’s walls.  The significance is that The Washington Times chose to report on that “prank” and thereby gave it both exposure and credence.  I’d bet that Obama is highly incensed by the  Times’ choice.

A lot of Americans will see that video and nod in agreement.

Bible-based Market Timing?


The following video is an “infomercial”–a “commercial”.  It’s commercial nature causes me to distrust it.  Even so, it offers an interesting approach to timing markets based on Biblical “cycles”.  Although it’s an “info-mercial” there’s a lot more “info” than “mercial”.  You might learn something from this video.

Again, I don’t necessarily trust this system of timing markets.  Why?

First, because, in regard to End Times, I understand the Bible to declare that no man knows the precise date.  This video isn’t telling us the exact date for End Times to begin or for the Messiah’s return.  Still, I am habitually wary of anyone who claims to have read the Bible to reveal an “exact date” that anything will happen in End Times.

Second, because, as I hear this video for the first time, the timing is based on cycles of various lengths (which is not necessarily unreasonable)–but the choice of the day on which those cycles begin seem to me to be somewhat arbitrary.

Yes, whichever date is being used to start a relatively recent cycle corresponds with some fact of apparent Biblical significance.  But the problem is that you can find something that’s Biblically “significant” on lots of days.  That gives the person making these calculations a lot of leeway in terms of choosing cycle-start days.  That leeway casts some doubt on whether the cycle start-date truly reflects Biblical “prophecy” or human contrivance.

Similarly,the cycle end-dates are potentially suspicious in that no matter what cycle end-date is prophesied (or selected), something “important” happened that date.  For example, as I heard this video, most of the video is directed to using the cycle start- and end-days to determine when US stock markets (and perhaps the gold markets) will begin to go up or down.  Nevertheless, the Biblical start- and/or end-dates of the relevant cycles can relate to events in Israel. That’s not necessarily wrong.

Still, it seems to me that if we’re going to apply cycle-based predictions to US markets, the cycle start- and end-dates might be more convincing if they were all found in the context of the US events rather than those of Israel.

I’m not saying that this use of alleged Bible-based cycles is right or wrong.  I am saying that it’s not yet totally convincing–at least not for me.

But.  The authors claim to have made some persistently remarkable investment predictions by using their system.  If their claims are legitimate, there’s something here that’s worth considering.

More, the authors’ proposed system of several, Bible-based cycles is interesting.  I haven’t heard this one before.  Maybe it’s right, maybe it’s wrong.  Maybe it’s 70% and 30% wrong.  But it’s news (to me), therefore interesting (to me) and might therefore also be worth your consideration.

Incidentally, I’m not associated with this infomercial’s promoters.  I don’t know anything about him/them.  I make no recommendation as to whether you should pay to subscribe to their product or leave it along. I don’t stand to profit or lose based on your decision.  All I’m saying is that this “system” strikes me as “interesting”.  Other than that, caveat emptor.

Questions, We Get Questions


The "Sorcery" of End-Times "Babylon"? [courtesy Google Images]

The “Sorcery” of End-Times “Babylon”?

A reader asked,

 

“So Al,

Q1)  What happens when the dollar crashes?

Q2)  “How will we then buy and sell?

Q3)  “Is this Revelation 18 in our faces?”

 

Al:  Our debt-based monetary system has produced a debt-based economy that is so strange and irrational that we’re now deep into “uncharted waters”.  As a result, no one really knows what might follow a dollar crash.

However, we can speculate.

Hillary Communes with Eleanor

This isn’t exactly news.  Apparently, it’s been known for a number of years that Hillary Clinton (a living candidate for the Democrat nomination for President of the United States) has, in the past, routinely “communicated” with Eleanor Roosevelt (the dead wife of former President Franklin D. Roosevelt).  Presumably, Hillary still communes with Eleanor.  (No word on whether their relationship is strictly platonic.)

But all of that is news to me.  In fact, it’s an astonishment to me.  It’s even scary to me because the mere idea that a woman who openly admits that she communes with the dead could even be considered as a candidate for President seems virtually incomprehensible.  To me, if we wind up with Hillary in the White House, it will another (after Obama, the Kenyan Muslim) judgement and curse by God on the United States.

I cannot explain Obama’s election except as a judgment and curse by God.  How th’ helk did America nominate and elect a man to the presidency who can’t even produce a birth certificate?  Is that even possible without God’s intervention?

Likewise, how th’ helk can enough Americans even consider voting for and electing a woman for President who openly communes with the dead?  I can’t see her candidacy having any success whatsoever except as a curse by God on the United States.

Obama’s election is not politics as usual.  Neither is Hillary’s candidacy.

What’s Wrong With This Video?


Celestial Mechanics [courtesy Google Images]

Celestial Mechanics

The following video asserts that:

  1. A retired military man who’s allegedly “in the know” has warned that
  2. A comet that’s 2.5 miles wide is going to
  3. Hit the Atlantic Ocean about 200 miles offshore from Brazil and Venezuela;
  4. Somewhere between September 15th and September 28th; and,
  5. Will cause massive tsunamis that will cause horrendous damage to much of South America, the Caribbean and the Gulf and East coasts of the United States.

That’s a bunch of crap because:

  1. At the Equator, the earth rotates at about 1,000 miles per hour. If the comet were to hit 90 minutes earlier, it would land in Africa; if it hit 15 minutes later, it would land in South America.  To know precisely where the comet is going to hit (in the Atlantic, 200 miles off Brazil), we must know precisely when the comet is going to hit.
  2. The earth is orbiting the sun at the speed of 66,600 miles per hour (1,110 miles per minute; 18.5 miles per second).
  3. Comets are known to travel at speeds ranging from 26 miles per second up to 298 miles per second.
  4. To predict that a particular, 2.5 mile wide comet will strike the earth somewhere between September 15th and September 28th is irrational because, during that 13 day period, the earth will have moved almost 6 million miles in its orbit around the sun.
  5. The earth’s diameter is about 7,917 miles.  If the earth is orbiting the sun at 66,600 miles per hours and the earth is only 7,917 miles in diameter, then it follows (if I’m doing my math right) that from the moment the “leading edge” of the earth reaches a particular point in its orbit, the “trailing edge” of the earth will cross that same point a little over 7 minutes later. That means that if there’s a 2.5 mile wide comet whose orbit intersects the earth’s orbit, there’s less than a ten minute window of opportunity in an entire year for that comet to hit the earth.
  6. The only way that any mortal man can calculate when a comet is going to strike anywhere on the earth (let alone 200 miles off Brazil) is to know exactly where the earth and comet will intersect within a matter of ten minutes or less out of an entire year.  The fact that the unnamed retired military man can’t predict even the date (let alone the particular hour) of the comet’s arrival is evidence that his warning is crapola.
  7. Celestial mechanics is a fairly precise science.  Anyone who tells you that a comet, asteroid or planet is definitely going to hit the earth within a period of several weeks or even several hours doesn’t really know what he’s talking about. If his calculations are off by just a few minutes, probably even seconds, there’ll be no impact.  Some bodies in our solar system move at such incredible speeds that, in just one minute, they can move over 100,000 miles.  The earth itself has probably traveled at least 4,000 miles since you started reading this article.

Here’s the video.  It’s 11 minutes long.  It’s not really necessary to watch it, but you can if you like.  It’s like scores of similar videos that predict and/or “confirm” that the earth will be hit by a meteor, comet or even unseen planet.  However, if those predictions can’t at least name date when the impact will take place, they’re just guessing, or telling “spook” stories, or perhaps even intentionally dispersing misinformation.

Who/What is End Times “Babylon”?


I’m not a student of End Times.  I should be, but I’ve never gotten around to it.  Over the years, I’ve read a couple of books, chapters in the Bible, a number of articles and, of course, I’ve seen an assortment of internet videos on the subject.

However, to be a real student of End Times, I think I’d need to dedicate three months, six months, maybe a year or more to intense and exclusive study of that subject.  Just me, my Bible and my computer to slowly assemble and analyze all of the Biblical “pieces” to the End Times puzzle   So far, I haven’t had or made the time to do that.

Nevertheless, I’ve held a couple of superficial opinions on the subject that have been fairly consistent for the past 30 years.  For example, I’ve accepted the notion that the End Times “whore” that sits on “seven hills” must be the Catholic Church.  I’ve also supposed (and feared) that the United States might be the “Babylon” that’s destroyed in one hour or one day in Revelation.  I’ve never said or thought that those opinions were absolutely true, but I’ve accepted them as likely.

So, I was much surprised by the following video which, among other things, claims that there’s another city besides Rome (and the Vatican) that also sits on “seven hills“.  That city is located in Saudi Arabia and is the site of Islam’s holiest shrine:  Mecca. Based on a large number of Bible verses, the video argue that that Rome, the Catholics, New York City and the United States can’t be the “Babylon” of End Times.  Instead, the End Times “Babylon” must be associated with Islam and Mecca.

As I started to listen to the video, I thought, Oh-my-gosh, here’s another one of those crackpot theories.  I thought it was crazy. But, since I’d never before heard the argument that the End Times “Babylon” was Islam, I was curious.  So, I continued to listen to see what I could learn.  After five or ten minutes of skeptical listening, I began to think that the Islam-is-Babylon theory made a lot of sense.

The video hasn’t yet convinced me that the End Times “Babylon” must be associated with the Islamic faith and/or Mecca.  I’d have to verify every item of scripture that was quoted in the video to see that it wasn’t falsely interpreted before I began to believe the theory.  Still, the video makes arguments that impress me as possible, persuasive and interesting.
