    Default The Secret History of Our Time

    The Secret History of Our Time:
    The Pope and Satan, War and the Anti-
    Christ, Revelations and the Last Days


    Author’s Note: In order to come up with an accurate understanding of today’s world crisis it is necessary to start looking at it from the spiritual dimension. This essay attempts to do so, using sources acquired during many years of study.

    By the latter half of the 19th century, say at the time of the great Chicago Columbian Exposition of 1893, many visionaries saw mankind poised to enter a Golden Age of peace, prosperity, innovation, and progress. The reason, of course, was the Industrial Revolution, especially the relatively recent harnessing of electricity and what that could mean in terms of bringing the benefits of science and technology to bear on raising standards of living and improving the health, longevity, and culture of the masses. Most promising was the possibility that all the new ways of harnessing the hidden forces of nature could allow everyone the leisure to enjoy life, not just the privileged few.

    We know that it did not work out that way. Along with skyscrapers, the telephone, airplanes, and automobiles came the horrors of the 20th century, with its wars, revolutions, genocides, and pestilences. There also came the exploitation of the earth and its resources, especially petroleum, for the enrichment of wealthy minorities in the most heavily-armed nations and the development of arsenals of weapons eventually capable of wiping all life off the planet.

    Today we seem to be in a late stage of these tragedies, with the U.S. military poised to complete the armed conquest of the earth through a continuous series of assaults against the nations of the Middle East followed by even bigger targets.

    It is obvious that the ultimate enemies are Russia and possibly China, both nuclear powers growing in economic strength. (See “Former Soviet States: Battleground for Global Domination” by Rick Rozoff, Global Research, November 23, 2009.) What precisely is to be gained by the American policy of world military supremacy no one seems to be able to define very clearly.

    In years past one would assume the above remarks were made by an advocate of communism and an hater of America. Now, there are so many idiotic isms that it is hard to say where the remarks are coming from. If what the author says is true, I can only hope the US is successful in its ongoing and planned assaults. Then at least we can have one world in the manner to which we have become accustomed. Not a bad a prospect if you stop and think about it.

    Default War machines

    You need alot of resources to run war machines and the U.S. is no different. Everybody else owns our butts and we know it so the sabre rattling continues across the globe. We are like a card counter on a negative swing playing with a borrowed bankroll.

    Then to follow the card counter analogy, if we just hang in there long enough, things will turn around in the long run

    Default life imitates?

    How true my brother Aslan but we shall not be here for the positive upswing. If we are not taken out when the world count tanks we may not be able to wong out. You know I don't want to really to stay around to see what happens in really,really,really negative counts.

    Unfortunately, its a negative EV game and we are using a ponzi-funded martingale approach.

    In actuality, the game is already over. You don't think the Deity would engage in a venture of which the end were unknown, do you? It was check and mate before the first pawn advanced. The ensuing play is meaningless to the outcome, yet nevertheless all very real to the participants. The beauty of faith is knowing the outcome even when the present facts seem to spell utter disaster.

    Why must you inject Christian/Catholic gibberish into an otherwise intelligent debate? FYI it was only a few thousand years ago when a rag-tag bunch of Jewish Sand People wrote down some tribal bullshit about getting stoned to death for working on the sabbath and so on. And then about 2000 years ago another small bunch of (well, wouldn't you know) JEWS claimed to have the Son Of Gwod in their midst. Now that was stretchin the coincidence don't you think?

    My point is that before all that Sand People nonsense was written while they were herding goats, the Universe had already been there for billions of years, and the Earth had been there also for billions of years. AND IT WILL KEEP ON BEING THERE FOR MORE BILLIONS OF YEARS despite Sand People writing bullshit stories about the whole thing ending soon. What are you, a Jehovah's Silly Bloody Witless or something. Bottom line:

    THERE IS NO DEITY OF THE KIND YOU BELIEVE IN. Az, YOU are the deity.

    You exhibit such great faith in what you think you know, it would appear Br. Kat.

    Bro Zen, Faith is what it's all about; ask Aslan. I see the science that tells us approximately how long the universe has been here, and how long this earth has been here; orbiting around the sun for billions of years. I see this earth has survived pretty well so far, even tho it's been hit by millions of meteorites including some large ones. It's also survived innumerable earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions as well as Ice Ages, and warmings over the aeons. The fact that the earth has demonstrated its amazing resilience so far in its billions-year life gives me great confidence and faith that it will continue to do so. This is despite the pathetic scratchings of past humans who were ruled by fear: the fear of death... (Just as the religious are today.)

    I don't know about alien intervention in human evolution; I'd like to see some real, solid evidence for this, instead of New Age wishful fantasies. Instead, I'll continue my faith in Planet Earth. The only problem I see is nuclear proliferation and the rogue states who already have some big bombs (this includes Israel). Should the Samson Option be invoked then we each may see Armageddon. But when another Muslim country gets some nukes, who knows what could happen then?

    Apart from that, what else could threaten Earth before I expire some time in the next 25 or so years? FAITH brother, I have faith that the whole shebang is OK, despite chicken scratchings by Hebrews, Mayans, or other Neanderthals.

    Because, ultimately, all debate lacks intelligence if it precludes Christianity.
