According to this article: Infowars
A London based company (Visor) just happened to be in the London underground performing "bombing" evercises in the exact locations and times that the actual London bombings occured. This is verified by radio interviews with Visor Consultant's employees. Peter Powers of Visor Consultants wrote an e-mail (reproduced in entirety here Canada Freepress), stating there was no conspiracy involved.

Later in the first article it is pointed out that during 9/11 at least 5 or 6 training exercises were occuring on the east coast of the USA, some dealing with aircraft. This is claimed to have put up to 22 blips on NORAD radar screens, masking the actual terrorist hijackings (9/11).
It is alleged that Dick Cheney ultimately took control of the exercises (perhaps to shut them down).

Of course all of this is considered "conspiracy theories", but there appears to be some substance to it, and the coincidences are a little unnerving. Are terrorists aware of and using our training exercises to mask their plots? Are people in the US / British (and other possibly) establishments coordinating with terrorist groups?

Mary, come to our rescue!

Science and Church

A classic example of the limits of science, and an example of a conflict between the Church and science is the idea of geocentrism.
The Church has taught that the earth does not move, and the sun and stars move around it. The ancient Greeks proposed a heliocentric theory, which the early Church Fathers contested based on Scriptural interpretation.

Centuries later, Corpenicus proposed a heliocentric theory, which he felt would simplify the cosmology of Ptolemy. He sold it to a Pope as a more efficient way to describe the motions of planets as part of a program to improve the calendar. In fact, Corpenicus' heliocentric model required 48 epicycles (including "epicyclets") to Ptolemies 40 to gain the same accuracy! [Kepler's elliptical orbits simplified things, but still was not more accurate than Ptolemy's model until modern times when Fourier Transforms (a fancy form of many, many, epicycles, effectively) were applied to curve fit observed deviations of planetary motion from the ideal Keplerian motion.)]

Galileo picked up Corpenicus' model and proclaimed basically that Scripture was wrong, the earth orbited the sun, and the sun was the center of the universe. Three Popes ended up condeming the writings of Corpenicus and Galileo. If the Corpenicus' writings and Galileo treated their theories as a theory, and not as proven reality, the Church would have stayed out of it. Finally, after the editors of Corpenicus' works removed the few sentences that proclaimed heliocentrism to be more than a theory from his works (as demanded in the inquisition), the works were removed from the index. The proclamations were never rescinded.

Today, heliocentrism is rejected, as is geocentrism, all in favor of acentrism. No one knows if there is a center to the universe, scientifically. Equally factual, No one has proven to date that the earth rotates or translates! I.e., geocentrism has by no means been disproven. Acentrism is more philosophical than scientific. The theory of General Relativity operates under the assertion that one can pick any center to describe the universe. A postulate of the theory is that there are no preferred reference frames (i.e., any center will do). This is how General Relativity is formulated.

All observation we make in the universe is of relative motion. We see the sun and stars rotating around us, but mathematically, equally probable is that the earth turns (the current OPINION). Foucalt's pendulum, Sagnac effect, light gyroscopes, etc. can detect rotation, but cannot distinguish between rotation of the earth and rotation of the universe.
The interesting predicament is that though science strongly disagrees with geocentrism, it has not been able to disprove it.

Some interesting quotes:

Cosmologist George Ellis in Scientific American:

"People need to be aware that there is a range of models that could explain the observations," Ellis argues. "For instance, I can construct you a spherically symmetrical universe with Earth at its center, and you cannot disprove it based on observations." Ellis has published a paper on this. "You can only exclude it on philosophical grounds. In my view there is absolutely nothing wrong in that. What I want to bring into the open is the fact that we are using philosophical criteria in choosing our models. A lot of cosmology tries to hide that."

As stated by Max Born in his famous book,"Einstein's Theory of Relativity",Dover Publications,1962, pgs 344 & 345:

:"...Thus we may return to Ptolemy's point of view of a 'motionless earth'...One has to show that the transformed metric can be regarded as produced according to Einstein's field equations, by distant rotating masses. This has been done by Thirring. He calculated a field due to a rotating, hollow, thick-walled sphere and proved that inside the cavity it behaved as though there were centrifugal and other inertial forces usually attributed to absolute space.

Thus from Einstein's point of view, Ptolemy and Corpenicus are equally right."

The Virgin of Guadalupe's Revenge?

I have been reading and hearing a lot about the fact that Europe will eventually becoms an Islamic continent due the fact that Europeans are not getting married and not having children. From what I have seen in Europe, I believe there is a lot of truth in this. There are many Islamic people coming into Europe, and they are having a lot of children, compared to those of "Christian" Europeans.

A similar phenomenon is occuring the US, but we are far behind where they are. Marriage is much more common in the US, but families are having far fewer children (I think a recent statistic is less than 2.3 children per family). At the same time, the US, especially, western US is being flooded by immigants. Most of these immigrants are from Hispano-America. These immigrants are also having more children than established Americans.

The main difference, and it is possibly a blessing in disguise, is that most of the immigrants coming into the US from Hispano-America are Christian, largely Catholic. If we can keep them in the Catholic Church (many are fleeing to Protestant cults), they may make the US a Catholic nation, or at least create some Catholic states!

Is this the doing of the Virgin of Guadalupe?

London Bombings

The world was rocked again after 9/11, Madrid and other attacks with today's London bombings. God bless the victims of the attack and the nation of Great Britain. Mary protect all your people on earth and help to turn their hearts back to your son.

God and Man: A Sign of Things to Come?

I am on vacation in Guatemala, and have been thinking a lot about things going on in the world. Early this morning, just after midnight, I was watching Deutsche-Welle (a German news program broadcast here in English). They were discussing the 2005 summer in Europe. First they brought up the fact that the 2003 summer was catostrophically hot and dry, leading to 15,000 elderly dying. I was working in southern France much of that summer, and can attest to the heat and dryness. I changed hotels a few times in search of air conditioning that worked.

Deutsche-Welle also reported that Portugal is currently experiencing the worst drought in 300 years. The countries of southern Europe are preparing for a record summer.

They then cut to Spain, where they interviewed a farmer, who was describing the loss of his crops. They cut to a scene of a combine harvesting wheat. It was collecting the grain and kicking out the waste. The dialogue mentioned that it looked normal, but according to the farmer, the harvest was mainly chaff and hay, very little wheat. I could not help but think about Jesus talking about seperating the chaff from the wheat, also talking about the wheat withering and the chaff taking over. The next scene the farmer was standing in a field of another crop (not stated what, but appeared to be a seed crop, possibly for oil). He pulled a whithered and dry plant from the earth and crumbled it in his hands. He said it was ruined. Here I could not help but think of the words of Mary to Maximin in 1846 at La Sallette (La Sallette):

Have you ever seen any spoilt wheat, my children?

We both answered: "Oh no, Madame."

The Holy Virgin turned to Maximin, saying: " But you, my child, you must have seen some once near le "Coin", with your father. The farmer said to your father: "Come and see how my wheat's gone bad!" You went to see. Your father took two or three ears in his hand, rubbed them, and they fell to dust. Then, on your way back, when you were no more than half an hour away from Corps, your father gave you a piece of bread, and said: "Take it, eat it while you can, my son, for I don't know who will be eating anything next year if the wheat is spoiled like that!"

Well, I cannot claim Deutsche-Welle as prophetic, but when combined with the Tsunami (10,000+ dead), a 100 year rain in California, recent earthquakes in California and Nicaraugua, and other recent events, one has to ask, "Is God trying to get our attention?".

In Europe, Pope John Paul II implored the European Union to include at least a mention of Europe's Christian heritage in the upcoming constitution. The response was negative. In the US, our federal constitution makes no mention of God. Many of our state constitutions do at least recognize God (God and State Constitutions).

Clearly man has the responsibility to care for himself and his neighbors, but not without God. Today, we live under the illusion of the "secular state" and "seperation of church and state". Rarely today is God mentioned in public and state events. With abortion and euthanasia (as the most clear examples) becoming state protected activities as a result of state philosophies, it is clear that we need to re-examine, and even reverse these philosophies. Man cannot exist without God. God has destroyed man's attempt to build the tower at Babylon, and will do so again.
