    The Martian Monolith that Is Not Made By Martians

     By: Ivan Petricevic
     http://www.ancient-code.com

    We decided to practice a little bit of Xenoarchaeology (Xenoarchaeology is a hypothetical form of archaeology that exists mainly in works of science fiction. The field is concerned with the study of material remains to reconstruct and interpret past life-ways of alien civilizations. Xenoarchaeology is not currently practiced by mainstream archaeologists due to the current lack of any material for the discipline to study.) and investigate a strange looking monolith that has got the internet crazy. According to many UFO sites, NASA’s HiRISE camera on-board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter took a very interesting image of an object on the surface of the Red Planet. The image shows a monolith on the surface of Mars which according to ufologists around the web is a artificial rectangular boulder. But lets take a bit and check out the image, the placement and lets not forget to mention a couple of things about the HiRISE camera on-board of NASA’s MRO.

    First of all the placement of this boulder is very strange because it is located at the bottom of a cliff accompanied by many other-mostly smaller boulders. It is very likely that in fact this “Alien boulder” belonged to a different place in the past, and it’s current location is attributed to the fact that it actually disintegrated from a much larger piece of Martian rock, due to the harsh conditions that rule on Mars, it got to the point where it is today. The location actually speaks for itself, why would you place a monolith in a location like that, it would hardly be notices and it is in danger of being hit by other rocks.

    Taking in count the time-frame when the image was taken, we have to take in count the position of the Sun and Mars respectably. According to the analyst team of MRO, the image was taken when the sun was near the horizon, thus the shadow of the boulder itself appears extremely elongated and can falsely attribute extreme height to the boulder itself.

    As for the HiRISE camera of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and the properties of the image as well. The HiRISE camera that actually photographed this object on Mars has a resolution of approximately 30 centimeters per pixel which is amazing when you take in count from where the image was taken, 300-kilometer above the Martian surface, but the camera itself does not offer much sharpness to capture the rugged and uneven attributes of the boulder.

    “When your resolution is too low to fully resolve an object, it tends to look rectangular because the pixels in the image are squares. Any curve will look like a series of straight lines if you reduce your resolution enough,” Jonathon Hill a research technician and mission planner at the Mars Space Flight Facility at Arizona State University told Life’s Little Mysteries

    Even though most of us are just waiting for the moment that one of NASA’s robotic explorer finds something on Mars that points towards intelligent life, the boulder displayed in the image here just isn’t that moment. Some critics will say that the boulder itself is out of place, which it clearly is, but that doesn’t make it artificial. Taking in count the quality of the image, we cannot fully appreciate the object and so we cannot conclude that the object is of intelligent design. Here on Earth we have quite a number of extremely weird looking boulders. Here are a few that look like something man would have done, but they are actually a masterpiece of mother nature.

    As you can see, here on Earth we have some strange looking natural formations, which have nothing to do with mankind nor intelligence, other than the intelligence of mother nature who is life’s greatest architect.

    Doctor Pulls Hundreds Of Maggots From Patients Ear

    No matter how bad your day might be, it can't be as bad as the young man who had to have hundreds of maggots removed from his ear -- with tweezers.

    Last May, an unidentified patient approached Dr. Vikram Yadav -- a dermatologist based in Faizabad, India -- complaining of a buzzing in his ear.

    Now the video is going viral after some British newspapers posted it on their websites.

    Yadav discovered the man had aural myasis, a condition caused when a person's nose or ears are infested with fly larvae. Patients often notice a buzzing in their ears along with a smelly discharge in the area, the Daily Mail reports.

    Doctor Pulls Hundreds Of Maggots From Patients Ear

    Yadav, who Vice.com calls "the King of Blackheads" because of his many pimple-popping videos, said the maggots looked like a wiggling mass deep in the patient's ear.

    The maggots were feeding off the patient's inner ear flesh and would have burrowed into the brain and killed him had Yadav not intervened. In the procedure, Yadav first suffocated the bugs so they fled to the entrance of the ear. Then he removed them one or two at a time with tweezers.

    Aural myasis is common in tropical and subtropical areas, and has a fatality rate of eight percent, according to the Mirror.

    Most patients are kids younger than 10 and very ill adults, which is why Yadav says the best treatment is a preventative one.

    "If anybody sleeps, a child, an old person, and you see any houseflies there, put some cloth on their face so they don't enter into the orifices and lay their eggs," Yadav said, according to HNGN.com.

    Sex Doll Producers Aim To Take Over The World

     By Andy Wells 

    The inflatable doll factory in Ningbo, China, set up shop just five years ago but punters from across the globe are ringing them up every day to get their hands on one of them.

    Now officials are hoping to take over the world with their vast collection.

    Factory worker Lili Hsing said: "It’s taken our breath away, and not because we have to blow up the dolls.

    "The speed this industry has developed is truly exceptional.


    "When I first started here, we had one type of doll on offer, and only limited local interest.

    "Now we have 10 dolls, including our premium high end brand, and calls from all over the world."

    There are so many of the £30 dolls that they litter the floors of the factory – and workers sometimes feel a bit creeped out by the display.

    Shu Mai said: "Sometimes it’s a bit eerie having all these body parts lying around, a bit like a giant morgue.

    "Of course I know they aren’t real.


    "I assume the men who buy them know that too, although on our online sales we do give them names and the men request the doll by name.

    "I think one of the reasons we have become so successful is the quality of the dolls we produce.

    "They look good, are easily inflatable and don’t deflate too quickly.

    "Our customers like that."

    Satisfaction in more ways than one...

    The Illuminati Card Game: Predicting Disasters Since 1990s  Read more: http://www.disclose.tv/news/The_Illuminati_Card_Game_Predicting_Disasters_Since_1990s/111172#ixzz3Jc986r6r

    In September 1981, Steve Jackson and his regular freelance cover artist Dave Martin discussed their shared admiration of the Illuminatus! Trilogy, and the latter suggested a game. Steve Jackson decided against adapting the novel because of the expense of game rights, and the difficulty of adapting a novel with such convoluted plots. He decided “a game about the secret-conspiracy idea behind Illuminatus!” was doable.

    After doing research on the Illuminati and conspiracy theories, and “extensive and enthusiastic play-testing” it went on the market in July 1982 in the Pocket Box format (a plastic box the size of a mass-market paperback) which was at the time the usual for SJG. Over the next few years, three expansions for the Pocket Box Illuminati game were published-the first two were substantially incorporated into the deluxe edition, while the third was an earlier version of what would become Illuminati: Brainwash.


    Robert Shea provided a four-paragraph introduction to the rulebook for the Illuminati Expansion Set 1 (1983), in which he wrote, “Maybe the Illuminati are behind this game. They must be-they are, by definition, behind everything.” Despite this initial involvement, Wilson later criticized some of these products for exploiting the Illuminatus! name without paying royalties (taking advantage of what he viewed as a legal loophole). Later commentators have attributed both the game and the Illuminatus! Trilogy as using real conspiracies as “targets of ridicule.”

    How did they know?


    HAARP and satellite mind control?





     VIDEO: The Illuminati Card Game - 1995 

    For those in Oregon read this: What other types of disasters might the Illuminati have planned for us? In the card game we find the following: Tidal wave, Oregon disaster (type not stated), earthquake, hurricane, volcano, combined disasters, and meteor strike, just to name a few. Are you ready?


    Oil spill card of Illuminati Card Game

    Likewise another card, issued well before 9-11, showed the twin towers being taken down is one of the most shocking of all, especially in light of the fact that this game first hit the specialty stores in 1995! How in the world did Steve Jackson know that the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were going to be attacked?

    In fact, this card accurately depicted the World Trade Center attack in great detail. This card accurately depicts several facts of 9/11 – on cards created all the way back in 1995! The picture accurately depicts:

    * That one tower was going to be struck first; this picture accurately depicts the moments between the first tower strike and the second.

    * The card accurately depicts that the place of impact is some distance from the top of the twin towers. The plane hit in this approximate area of the first tower. How in the world could Steve Jackson know this fact?

    * The card accurately depicts the Illuminati leadership by showing on the building to the extreme left of the card the Illuminist pyramid with an all-seeing eye in the middle.

    * The caption at the top properly identifies the perpetrators of the attack as “terrorists”



    However, what does the caption to this card mean? It says, “Terrorist Nuke”. Now, what could this possibly mean? The Twin Towers were not destroyed by a terrorist nuclear device, or were they? In Bali Blast, the scientific data suggested that the hotel was taken down by a micro-nuclear device of about 0.10 kilotons .
    One can only ask: was a micro-nuclear device used at the base of the Twin Towers as well? That kind of small, but nuclear, explosion would account for the sudden manner the reinforced concrete and steel shell simply crumbled into dust as it fell. That kind of nuclear explosion would also explain the tremendous heat that stayed at “Ground Zero” for several months after 9/11. As we head into the planned “terrorist attacks” and attendant panics, we have to remain cognizant that a micro-nuke device might be the real culprit in some of these attacks

    Pentagon ­ Unless one had advanced knowledge of the Illuminati Plan, there is no way on earth that they would have been able to create pictures in 1995 that accurately depict the unfolding events of 9/11! The Pentagon is shown on fire; we know that a plane allegedly flew into a section of the Pentagon and nearly burned that section completely. However, the rest of the Pentagon was undamaged to the point where its functions continued unimpeded.

    Isn’t this the situation depicted here? This card shows a fire burning mightily in the center courtyard of the Pentagon, but the rest of the building looks undamaged enough so that normal activities could continue unimpeded!

    Thus, these two cards literally depict both of the strikes of 9/11: against the Twin Towers first and then against the Pentagon. This kind of accuracy 6 years before the attacks is possible only if one knows the Illuminati Plan very thoroughly.. Source

    What other types of disasters might the Illuminati have planned for us? In the card game we find the following: Tidal wave, Oregondisaster (type not stated), earthquake, hurricane, volcano, combined disasters, and meteor strike, just to name a few. Are you ready?

    How stupid are the American people? How apostate? Now comes destruction, death and hell. Don’t believe it? In total denial? You better stay in denial, for as the saying goes, ignorance is bliss, that is until you pay the piper. These cards are not made up, I have all of them, they were in fact made in 1990-1991 – PANIC -GLP





    Notice the card in the third row with the plane pulling around a cloudi.e., chemtrails creating clouds.

    The fellow who created these cards is obviously in on the Globalists plan for us.

    I enlarged every card, over 350 of them and read them. Very telling of just how sick their plans are for us.

    Card 102 on world energy crisis




    Nobody has any idea what’s in those secret recipes and when they find out, they will forget?

    Vicar Tells Schoolchildren Father Christmas is NOT REAL in Gory Tale of Butchered Kids Sold as Ham

    By Richard Smith
    Rev Simon Tatton-Brown, who retires next month, told the story of St Nicholas, who brought the children back to life after their bloodied corpses were stuffed into barrels

    A priest told pupils as young as five a festive tale about butchered children being sold as ham.

    Rev Simon Tatton-Brown, 65, also suggested Father Christmas is not real when he told the story of St Nicholas, who brought the children back to life after their bloodied corpses were stuffed into barrels.

    Furious parents of pupils at Charter primary school in Chippenham, Wilts, have threatened to boycott his carol service in protest.

    The vicar, who retires next month, said: “I got it wrong.”

    He said he’d had to abandon his prepared talk because of a ‘technical glitch’ and delivered his speech without notes to read from.

    Vicar Tells Schoolchildren Father Christmas is NOT REAL in Gory Tale of Butchered Kids Sold as Ham

    The vicar said Father Christmas was also rumoured to have dropped a gift down a poor family’s chimney, but it landed in a stocking hung up to dry by the fire.

    Horrified parents said the talk would give their children nightmares and make them start to disbelieve in the magic of Father Christmas and his reindeer.

    Canon Tatton-Brown, 65, said “I didn’t intend to upset anyone or to dispel children’s beliefs in Santa Claus, but I accept I was wrong.”

    He said “I understand that they’re disappointed.

    “I got it wrong. It wasn’t intentional. I can’t undo it.”

    He said his biggest concern was the children’s Christmas being spoilt.

    Thankfully youngsters in the reception class, aged four, were not part of the assembly.


    The vicar has now written to the headteacher, Sarah Flack, to apologise.

    His letter reads “I was very sorry to hear of the trouble following my assembly on Wednesday.

    “I talked about St Nicholas, and the stories about him, which tell us why Santa Claus brings gifts at Christmas.

    “I am sorry if this was misunderstood.

    “I fully support parents who want their young children to enjoy the Christmas stories, including Father Christmas, and I had no intention of undermining their belief in the reality of Santa Claus.”

    Mrs Flack said she accepted his apology.

    She said children had ‘made comments’ to their parents at home after hearing the vicar’s talk but the school was ‘looking forward to moving on’ and would still be using St Andrew’s for their carol service and would welcome a new vicar at next year’s Christmas assembly.

    Mexican Government Disclose Alien Artifacts

    Luis Augusto Garcia Rosado, the minister of tourism for the Mexican state of Campeche, said new evidence has emerged “of contact between the Mayans and extraterrestrials, supported by translations of certain codices, which the government has kept secure in underground vaults for some time.”

    He also spoke, in a phone conversation, of “landing pads in the jungle that are 3,000 years old.”

    Mexican Government Disclose Alien Artifacts

    Raul-Julia claims there is proof that the Mayans had intended to lead the planet for thousands of years, but were forced to escape after an invasion by “men of dark intentions,” leaving behind evidence of an advanced race.


    “The Mexican government is not making this statement on their own — everything we say, we’re going to back it up,” he said.

    You Won´t Believe The Truth About Fukushima The Japanese Government Is Hiding From The World

    This special report from Vice should have the world´s attention. While the Japanese government (and mainstream media) continues to ignore the horror unleashed by the Fukushima nuclear plant tragedy, recent reports coming out of Japan paint a whole different picture. Yes, we should be freaking out.

    Vice travel to Fukushima to see the nuclear plant, meet some locals, and interview experts. According to ex-politician Hiroshi Kawauchi: “The nuclear reactor has emitted airborne radioactive cesium levels that exceed the Hiroshima A-bomb by 168 times, but we´re always told everything is OK.” 168 times? The consequences for groundwater and seawater contamination, not to mention the food we eat and the air we breathe, are unimaginable and will get worse with each generation.


    Fukushima has the potential to be a global nuclear catastrophe unlike anything we have ever seen before. The Japanese government has covered up the truth, putting residents at great risk for many generations to come. 90 million tonnes of radioactive water is leaking into the ground and the ocean. Another YouTube video showing latest reports from Fukushima this week paints a terrifying picture, although the mainstream press remains quiet.

    WATCH THE VIDEO:  Shocking Report From Fukushima 
     

    Please share this short report to raise awareness and put pressure on Japan´s government and the UN to do something about Fukushima, the worst nuclear disaster in history, and one that affects the whole world.

    US Soldier Claims He Has Spent 17 Years Battling ALIENS on MARS

    In testimony released to ExoNews TV, Captain Kaye said he was trained to fly three different types of space fighters and three bombers.

    He added that training took place on a secret moon base called Lunar Operations Command, Saturn’s moon Titan, and in deep space.

    Captain Kaye says he retired after a 20 year tour of duty, describing a retirement ceremony on the moon that he claims was presided over by VIPs including ex-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

    Captain Kaye’s testimony reveals that the main human colony on Mars is called Aries Prime which is located inside a crater. Aries Prime serves as the headquarters for the Mars Colony Corporation. According to Captain Kaye, the air is breathable on the surface of Mars, and the temperature could be warm at times.

    US Soldier Claims He Has Spent 17 Years Battling ALIENS on MARS

    He claims that there are two indigenous species on Mars, both of which are highly intelligent. One of these was a Reptilian species that was very aggressive in defending its territory. The other was an Insectoid species that was equally capable of protecting its territory. He said that indigenous Martians are not particularly interested in expanding their territory, only maintaining it. Captain Kaye said that as long as the Mars Defense Force and Mars Colony Corporation did not encroach on the territory of the indigenous Martians, there would be stable relations.


    After serving 17 years of a 20 year tour of duty, events changed dramatically when virtually all combat personnel from the Mars Defense force were asked to retrieve an extraterrestrial artifact from a cave sacred to the indigenous Reptilians. Captain Kaye described how over 1000 men and women were killed in a subsequent battle and only 28 of his colleagues, including himself, survived.

    A Virginia Beach mother says she is concerned for her son and believes that he may be possessed by the ghost of a Marine that died in a terrorist attack.

    Michelle Lucas says her four-year-old son Andrew constantly talks about the life and death of Marine Sergeant Val S. Lewis who was killed in a 1983 terrorist attack in Lebanon.

    “He just starts crying hysterically and I say, ‘What’s wrong Andrew,’ and he says ‘Why did you let me die in that fire?’”



    Lucas says she has no idea why her son would know about Lewis’ story and can’t explain his strange behavior in any way other than that the Marine’s ghost has possessed him.

    “Scared me, scared me— I didn’t know if there was a spirit coming out of him,” said Lucas. “I didn’t know if there was a spirit coming out of him.”

    The Daily Mail reports that Lewis was one of 241 service members killed in a Beirut, Lebanon terrorist attack in 1983.

    Newly-Found Document Holds Eyewitness Account of Jesus Performing Miracle

    An Italian expert studying a first century document written by the Roman historian Marcus Velleius Paterculus that was recently discovered in the archives of the Vatican, found what is presumed to be the first eyewitness account ever recorded of a miracle of Jesus Christ. The author describes a scene that he allegedly witnessed, in which a prophet and teacher that he names Iēsous de Nazarenus, resuscitated a stillborn boy and handed him back to his mother.

    Historian and archivist Ignazio Perrucci, was hired by the Vatican authorities in 2012, to sort, analyze and classify some 6,000 ancient documents that had been uncovered in the gigantic archive vaults. He was already very excited when he noticed that the author of the text was the famous Roman historian Velleius, but he was completely stunned when he realized the nature of the content.

    Newly-Found Document Holds Eyewitness Account of Jesus Performing Miracle
    Professor Perrucci found the text in the archives of the Vatican, while searching amongst a bundle of personal letters and other trivial documents dating from the Roman era.
    The text as a whole is a narrative of the author’s return journey from Parthia to Rome that occurred in 31 AD, recorded in a highly rhetorical style of four sheets of parchment. He describes many different episodes taking place during his trip, like a a violent sandstorm in Mesopotamia and visit to a temple in Melitta (modern day Mdina, in Malta).

    The part of the text that really caught M. Perrucci’s attention is an episode taking place in the city of Sebaste (near modern day Nablus, in the West Bank). The author first describes the arrival of a great leader in the town with a group of disciples and followers, causing many of the lower class people from neighbouring villages to gather around them. According to Velleius, that great man’s name was Iēsous de Nazarenus, a Greco-Latin translation of Jesus’ Hebrew name, Yeshua haNotzri.

    Upon entering town, Jesus would have visited the house of a woman named Elisheba, who had just given birth to a stillborn child. Jesus picked up the dead child and uttered a prayer in Aramaic to the heavens, which unfortunately the author describes as “immensus”, meaning incomprehensible. To the crowd’s surprise and amazement, the baby came back to life almost immediately, crying and squirming like a healthy newborn.

    Newly-Found Document Holds Eyewitness Account of Jesus Performing Miracle
    Marcus Velleius Paterculus, being a Roman officer of Campanian origins, seems to perceive Jesus Christ as a great doctor and miracle man, without associating him in any way to the Jewish concept of Messiah.
    Many tests and analysis have been realized over the last weeks to determine the authenticity of the manuscript. The composition of the parchment and ink, the literary style and handwriting have all been carefully scrutinized and were considered to be entirely legitimate. The dating analysis also revealed that the sheepskin parchment on which the text is written, does indeed date from the 1st century of this era, more precisely from between 20-45 AD.

    This new text from an author known for his reliability, brings a brand new perspective on the life of the historical character that is Jesus of Nazareth. It comes to confirm the Gospels on the facts that he was known for accomplishing miracles and that his sheer presence in a town was enough to attract crowds of people.

    A complete and official translation of the document should be made available online in many different languages over the next few weeks, but the impact of the discovery is already felt in the scientific community. Many scholars have already saluted the finding as one of the greatest breakthrough ever realized in the study of the historical life of Jesus, while others have expressed doubts about the conclusions of Professor Perrucci and demand for more tests to be performed by other scientific institutions before drawing any conclusions.

    The Sacred Trees Of World Mythology

    By Simon E. Davies, contributor to Ancient-Code.com

    Trees have been revered as sacred monuments since the prehistoric era. Our ancestors may well have been inspired by their annual cycle of decay in the autumn followed by a luscious rebirth in the spring. To the primitive mind, these trees became symbols of life, death and rebirth.

    There was one tree in particular which achieved mythical status throughout all world cultures. It is known today as the ‘World Tree’ and according to our ancestors, it was truly epic in scale. Its branches were said to reach as high as the heavens, while its roots plunged deep into the abyss of the underworld. Because of their association with celestial realms, these trees were regarded by many priests as gateways to other dimensions.

    • Yggdrasil was said to connect middle earth (Midgard) to eight other realms (some made of fire and ice, others of darkness and light)

    • The World Tree of Mesoamerica was seen as a gateway (aka axis mundi) connecting the planes of the Underworld and the sky with the terrestrial world

    • The ‘Sky Tree’ from Hungarian mythology had a series of branches which reached out to seven worlds. Each branch was said to touch the sun, the moon, the clouds and other celestial spheres.

    • The Dawn Tree from Baltic mythology was depicted with a golden trunk, copper roots and silver leaves. The trunk represented life in the present, while the past was embodied in its roots (life that has passed). The branches, however, represented future choices yet to be made


    The Sacred Trees Of World Mythology

    It should be noted that in nearly all depictions of the ‘World Tree’, a great serpent is said to reside at its base. These serpents typically guard a forbidden knowledge which only a select number of mortals have ascertained:

    • It was Adam and Eve who attained wisdom by eating fruit from the tree of Knowledge (Judaism/Christianity)

    • It was under the Bodhi tree that the Buddha was said to have gained enlightenment (Buddhist mythology)

    • The Kabbalah represents the tree of life (the other legendary tree of Christian mythology). Legend says that to learn the secrets of this mystic tree is to know the secrets of life itself

    • The Druids were priests of the natural world whose name was said to mean ‘knower’s of the oak’ (Celtic mythology)

    • The Cosmic Tree of Latvia was a highly symbolic image. It was said to hold birds in its branches (enlightenment), mammals at its base (instinct) and serpents in its roots (wisdom)

    The most common theme found in world mythology is the ‘Tree of Life’ which is said to both create and prolong life. In many cases, our ancestors believed that these great trees gave birth to the Gods and even to to humanity itself. Many pilgrims have searched for this mythical tree throughout the ages, but only the most worthy have been able to find it:

    • In Tengrinism, it is said that humans were descended from Trees, as well as other spirit entities and lesser gods who lived for hundreds of years.

    • A tree of life belonged to the Goddess Iusaaset who was said to have conceived the lineage of Egyptian Gods through the trees life giving properties

    • The Kalpavriksha tree from Vedic mythology was said to produce an abundance of life giving fruit for those who wished for it.

    Exposing the Secret Medical Government

    Over the last 50 years, tireless researchers have uncovered and revealed the existence of various elites that control governments and populations:

    Banks, super-banks, the military-industrial complex, intelligence agencies, psyop propagandists, Wall Street, and so forth and so on.

    For some reason, these researchers, many of them, have a blind spot when it comes to the ongoing operations of a shadow medical government.

    Blind spot. And also fear. Fear of criticism and ridicule for exposing sacred sacraments of society — like vaccination. Like psychiatry. Like (phony) epidemics.



    This tells you how strong and pervasive the pro-medical propagandists are. How much media power they wield. How much science they can fabricate. How thoroughly they can discredit and exile their critics, when those critics cut too close to the bone and expose too much truth.

    Truth? 

    For example: by conservative assessment, the US medical system kills 225,000 people a year like clockwork. Which comes out to 2.25 million American killings per decade. (Barbara Starfield, JAMA, July 26, 2000, “Is US health really the best in the world?”)

    For example: for the 300 official mental disorders, there is not a single definitive physical diagnostic test to confirm the disorder. There are only the highly toxic drugs used to treat patients.

    For example, none of the heralded so-called epidemics of the past 15 years have panned out. They were all duds. But much fear (and compliance) was generated.

    For example: contrary to assurances that vaccines are remarkably safe, the system for counting severe adverse reactions is irretrievably broken. Using rational guidelines for the US, an independent estimate of between 100,000 and 1.2 million severe reactions per year has been made. (Barbara Loe Fisher, National Vaccine Information Center).

    The story that emerges from these and other factors has a distinct shape. It is a story of sustained war against the population.


    It’s long past the time for the perpetrators to claim innocence or ignorance.

    And when researchers rightly claim, for instance, that the real aim of the Surveillance State is control of the population, they should begin to understand that the medical shadow government has the same goal — except that it engages in direct and widespread killing and maiming.

    Its agenda involves putting every person on the planet inside a cradle-to-grave system of medical compliance and highly toxic treatment.

    This system has an additional effect: as a cover story, through disease invention, it obscures actual environmental causes of illness and death — corporate pollution, sustained generation-to-generation malnutrition and starvation, contaminated water supplies and a general lack of basic sanitation, to name a few.

    And as for surveillance, universal medical ID packages and patient treatment records (including psychiatric) are fertile territory, to say the least.

    Medical shadow government: a casebook on how to weaken, debilitate, confuse, and kill populations.

    Swimming Champion Michael Phelps''Girlfriend' Claims She Was Born A Boy


    By Anthony Bond

    A woman who claims to be the girlfriend of swimming superstar Michael Phelps has revealed she was born a boy.

    Taylor Lianne Chandler - who says she is in love with the swimmer - revealed on Facebook that she was called David Roy Fitch at birth.

    She said during her teens she changed her name and used testosterone blockers before having surgery to remove her male genitalia in her early 20s.

    As reported by Mail Online, writing on Facebook, she said: "I was never a man, never lived as a man. No one can say they knew me as a man or produce a photo of me as a man."

    The 41-year-old added: "There are people that remember me as an androgynous child at times because of what was forced upon me."

    Phelps, 29, has an astonishing 22 Olympic medals making him the most decorated Olympian of all time.


    However, he is currently suspended from swimming for six months after he was arrested for drink driving.

    Chandler claims the pair met on dating app Tinder and described their sex life as "amazing".

    Speaking to the National Enquirer, she spoke about her sex life with Phelps.

    "The intimacy with him was amazing! It was the first time in my life that someone has made me feel like a true woman," she said.

    Chandler now fears Phelps could 'leave her' after she revealed her past.

    Last month, Phelps was handed a six-month suspension by USA swimming following his recent DUI arrest

    Phelps recently returned to top-level competition after a two-year sabbatical, but has been suspended following his arrest on September 30


    And USA Swimming has also issued a statement declaring that the most decorated Olympian of all time will not represent his country at the World Championships in Russia next August.

    The suspension means Phelps will be unable to compete in USA Swimming-sanctioned events for six months and will not be eligible to swim again until March 2015.

    Phelps was arrested in Baltimore for drink-driving, while he was also charged with excessive speed and crossing double lane lines.

    Police said the 29-year-old was clocked by radar travelling 84mph in a 45mph zone at around 1.40am.

    Police said he failed a series of field sobriety tests and had a blood-alcohol content of 0.14%, well above the legal limit of 0.08%.

    Phelps has won a total of 22 medals at the Olympic Games, including 18 golds.

    Back in August he won three golds and two silvers at the Pan Pacific Championships.

    MessageToEagle.com - There was once a mysterious European culture, which left a legacy in form of valuable artifacts covered with an unknown, never successfully deciphered script. These artifacts have been excavated from sites in south-east Europe.

    The culture that flourished from about 6000 BC to 3000 BC, was named Vinca-Tordos Culture of Yugoslavia and western Romania and derived its name from the village of Vinca located on the banks of Danube river, only 14 km downstream from Belgrade.

    Another part of the Vinca legacy are curious masks and the most informative costumed figurines depicting women in extremely modern clothes like narrow skirts, and sleeveless upper-body panels, complimented with hip belts, aprons, jewellry, shoes, caps, hairstyles, bracelets, necklaces, and medallions.

    Mysterious Ancient Vinca Culture And Its Undeciphered Script
    Mysterious Ancient Vinca Culture And Its Undeciphered Script

    Since the language of the Vinca still remains undeciphered, unearthed artifacts constitute the only source of knowledge about this culture.

    Vinca's living style reminds us about our own.


    Mysterious Ancient Vinca Culture And Its Undeciphered Script

    They lived in houses which had very complex architectural layouts and several rooms.

    The houses faced northeast - southwest and were separated by streets. Vinca people had stoves in their houses, preceding the Romans in using of these devices. They used special holes only for rubbish, and had the same tradition as we have, to bury people in cemeteries.

    The development of copper metallurgy is evident during the latter part of the Vinca culture's evolution.

    Among unearthed artifacts, there have been found a large number of figurines made of clay and others made of metal sheet and bones depicting worshipped deities and women in miniskirts and short tops, wearing jewellery.


    Mysterious Ancient Vinca Culture And Its Undeciphered Script


    It is hard to believe that women that lived several millennia ago wore miniskirts, unless, the cult of Mother Goddess was very widespread and reached both south-east part of Europe and ancient India.
    Similar, made of ceramic clay, figurines of Mother Goddess, were found in excavations in Mohenjo-Daro, located along the Indus River in ancient India (present-day Pakistan). One of these figurines also depicts a woman wearing a strange head-covering of inexplicable structure and miniskirt. 
    This would mean that women wore modern cloth at least 7,500 years ago!

    The Vinca Culture - Europe's biggest prehistoric civilization - point to a metropolis with a great degree of sophistication and a taste for art and fashion.




    An important question is: Is the legacy of the Vinca culture an evidence of the ever known earliest manifestation of the Divine Power and well evolved and widespread Mother Goddess worship cult?

    Many terracotta figurines of the Mother Goddess were recovered in excavations at various archaeological sites of Indus Valley. Naturally, orthodox science proposes a classical explanation to this phenomenon and say that the proto Mother, symbol of female fertility, is depicted on prehistoric figurines.

    However, the figurines unearthed in an ancient European settlement of Vinca, Europe's biggest prehistoric civilization and in Indus Valley may be a representation of someone entirely different.

    On many of the artefacts excavated from sites in south-east Europe, there have been found the Vinca symbols.

    Here are common symbols used throughout the Vinca period:




    They probably represent the earliest form of writing ever found and predating ancient Egyptian and Sumerian writing by thousands of years.

    Since the inscriptions are all short and appear on objects found in burial sites, and the language represented is not known, it is highly unlikely they will ever be deciphered.

    In some way, the Vinca's past is both forgotten and lost.

  • 12/08/14--18:29: Who is Babylon The Great?
  • Who is Babylon The Great?

    This study about the whore of Babylon is such an important one for the time we are living in, and it is our sincere prayer that you will look at this with open eyes and let God guide you and teach you in His truth. I cannot strongly enough state the importance of this study. The final judgment is soon to fall upon this world and upon Babylon, so you really need to find out who the whore is to make sure you are not joined with her and also receive of her plagues.

    Some people believe that Babylon is literal city like New York. But I want to show you from the Bible why this cannot be right.


    In Revelation 17 Babylon is guilty of committing “FORNICATION” and is a “WHORE”.Now what is fornication? Well, we need to find out the BIBLICAL meaning of fornication. In the Bible, fornication is the act of committing adultery against God by mixing with other Pagan nations and practices (traditions) and going after other gods. Look at how God described this in the book of Ezekiel speaking to His people …

    Revelation 17:4 …..’And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.’

    Who is Babylon The Great?

    Ezekiel 16:26-32 …’You have also committed FORNICATION with the Egyptians your neighbours, great of flesh; and have increased your WHOREDOMS, to provoke me to anger. You have played the WHORE also with the Assyrians, because you were unsatiable; yes, you have played the HARLOT with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied. How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord God, seeing you doest all these things, the work of an imperious WHORISH WOMAN; In that you buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and have not been as an harlot, in that you scornest hire; But as a wife that committeth ADULTERY, which taketh strangers instead of her husband.’

    Have a good read also of Ezekiel Chapter 23.


    God’s people in the Old Testament committed fornication against God and became a whore. And this is the important Biblical point. When God is talking about people committing adultery and being a whore in a prophetic, spiritual sense, like He is in Revelation. He is talking about people committing adultery AGAINST HIM. And the only people who can be guilty of committing fornication (adultery) against God today are ‘professed’ Christians.

    Let me give you a literal example of a husband and a wife. Can the wife commit adultery against her husband by going after another man? Yes, because she is married to her husband. Now can any other woman commit fornication or adultery against the husband? No, because they are not married to him. So the same is with God. Those outside the Christian faith CANNOT commit adultery against God because they are not “married” to Him in the first place. Only Christians can commit adultery against God, because Christ Jesus is the husband (Bridegroom) and the church is His wife (bride). So Babylon the Great HAS to be a professing Christian church. Do you see this vital truth?

     
    So why can’t this be Islam? 


    Because Islam rejects Jesus Christ as it’s Saviour and therefore Muslims are not ‘married’ to Christ. He is not their ‘husband’. Therefore they cannot commit adultery against God and be a whore, because they are not married to Him in the first place.

    Also Islam does not have the proper system of organization or the global political reach to be able to have control over the ‘kings of the world’. Plus Muslims can’t agree amongst themselves and are constantly warring against each other. No, there is only ONE religion which is regarded as the ‘mother’ church who has the world political reach to be Babylon!


    And here is more proof ..

    In Revelation 18 we read about the judgment of the Whore of Babylon. And in verse 23 it says … “the light of the candle shall shine no more at all in thee, and the voice of the Bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more in thee.” … Now, have a good think about this. Whether we take this symbolically or literally, there is only one kind of place this could be talking about. If we take this symbolically, then the bride and Bridegroom is a Biblical reference to Jesus Christ and His church (2 Corinthians 11:2; Matthew 25:6). Also, if we take this literally, then where do we see brides and bridegrooms? IN A CHURCH. So Babylon has to be a professed Christian church.

    NOTE: Babylon cannot be America or any other country, because Bible prophecy clearly portrays a country as a BEAST, not a woman. See Daniel 7:23 and Revelation 13. These BEASTS represent countries.

    God has given us a number of indentification marks so that we need not second guess who the whore of Babylon is, also known as Babylon the Great. But first, just to confirm before we get into the various identification marks ofBabylon, a woman in prophecy represents a church.

    2 Corinthians 11:2 …’For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as achaste virgin to Christ.’
    Isaiah 62:5 …’For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.’

    Christ Jesus is the “husband” of His church and the church is the “bride”. And just as the woman in Revelation 12 represents the pure church of Christ, the woman in Revelation 17 represents a fallen, apostate church. So if the whore of Babylon represents a church, then it obviously cannot simply be a city like New York or any other religion like Islam. Now interestingly, the apostle Peter also refers to Babylon in one of his letters … 1 Peter 5:13 …’The church that is at BABYLON.’ … There is agreement between a number of commentators that Peter was referring to Rome when he said Babylon. So Peter is speaking to the church in ROME.

    Peter is saying that ROME is Babylon. But who is the WHORE of Rome (Babylon)?

    “The penetration of the religion of Babylon became so general and well known that Rome was called the ‘NewBabylon’.” (Cardinal Gibbons, Faith of our fathers 1917 ed. p. 106)

    Let’s look at the other identification marks of Babylon the Great to find out exactly who this whore is.


    Identification Marks of The Whore of Babylon
    IDENTITY 1 – Revelation 17:1’I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters.’

    So this church, the whore of babylon, sits upon many waters. What does this mean? Well, if we let the Bible interpret itself, we can find out the answer … Revelation 17:15 …’And he saith unto me, the waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.’… So the waters represent the people and nations around the world. And if you sit upon something, then you are being supported by that object. So this is a church that has WORLDWIDE support from all different people and nations. Did you know that the Roman Catholic Church is the biggest church in the world with over 1 BILLION members?


    IDENTITY 2 – Revelation 17:2…’the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.’
    So this is a church that has influenced kings thoughout the past 2000 years and continues to have ‘diplomatic relations’ with nations all over the world. Now we know from history that the popes of the Roman Catholic Churchcertainly had ‘authority’ over the kings of the earth, which is how the Catholic Church was able to have so many Christians killed during the dark ages and inquisitions.

    Take a look at this quote from 2007 … “The Catholic Church is the only religious institution that can enter into diplomatic relations and that interests itself in international rights, acting through the Holy See, an international sovereign subject of singular characteristics.” (Monsignor Pietro Parolin, Undersecretary for Relations with States, www.zenit.org)

    This is an amazing quote in which the Catholic undersecretary unwittingly confirms the Roman Catholic Church as being the whore of Babylon! It is the ONLY religious institution that can have diplomatic relations with the ‘kings of the world’. Amazing!

    Also, the inhabitants of the earth have certainly been made drunk with the false teachings (wine) of the Catholic Church. Not only are there over 1 BILLION Catholics deceived by her teachings, even the majority of Protestant Christians still hold onto some Catholic false doctrines, like the Sunday sabbath, eternal hell fire, immortal soul, etc..


    IDENTITY 3 – Revelation 17:4
    …’And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.’

    So the main colours of this church, the whore of Babylon is Purple and Scarlet. And it is also a very wealthy church that is decked out with gold and precious stones. Did you know that the main colours of the Bishops and Cardinals in the Catholic Church are Purple and Scarlet? And did you know that the Roman Catholic Church is one of, if not THE most wealthiest institution in the world? With the Vatican being decked out with gold and precious stones? And if you look at some of the coins that the Vatican has had produced, you will see images of a woman with a golden cup in her hand on them. Blatantly boasting of who she is!


    This cup full of abominations is also a symbol that the sins of this church are so great and full that it is now a fallen, apostate church that can never be the church of Christ Jesus. And the sins of the Roman Catholic Church are immense, with it’s idolatry, murder, child abuse and so on, that she has committed throughout her history, and CONTINUES to commit.

    And when the mark of the Papal Church is enforced upon the world, THEN the message of Revelation 18:2 will go out to the world, and her fall into apostasy will be COMPLETE!


    IDENTITY 4 – Revelation 17:5 …’And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.’
    So the whore of Babylon is shrouded in mystery. Now the only church that I know of that is shrouded in mystery is the Roman Catholic Church. Outsiders are kept in the dark as to what really goes on behind closed doors at the Vatican. There is certainly a lot of mysterious behaviour that goes on with the Papacy. And what about Babylon the Great being the “MOTHER of harlots”? Did you know that the Protestant churches CAME OUT of the Roman Catholic Church? Did you know that many of them are now going back to the Catholic Church? There is no other church that has “harlot daughters” like the Papal Church of Rome does. And she is even regarded as the “MOTHER” church.

    And what church is the “MOTHER” of abominations of the earth? Literal Babylon from the Old Testament is the original mother of abominations, but the Roman Catholic Church is the spiritual mother of abominations that took on many of the Pagan customs of original Babylon.

    See THIS SHOCKING LIST of Vatican crimes against children!


    IDENTITY 5 – Revelation 17:6 …’And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.’

    So this church, the whore of Babylon is drunk with the blood of the saints. Now notice that it doesn’t say she just has the blood of saints on her hands. It says that she is DRUNK with the blood of God’s people. So this church is guilty of not just killing a few Christians. She is guilty of killing MANY, MANY of God’s people. Did you know that the Roman Catholic Church has caused TENS OF MILLIONS of Christians to be persecuted and brutally murdered? Yes, this woman is the Roman Catholic Church indeed!

    IDENTITY 6 – Revelation 17:18…’And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.’

    Now many people look at this verse and proclaim “BABYLON IS A CITY, IT’S NEW YORK!!”, and they totally disregard all the other characteristics of Babylon, which show that the whore of Babylon cannot just be a literal city like New York. BUT, if we take ALL the indentification marks together, including this city one, then we can see who it is. We know from the evidence that Babylon the Great is a church. So how can we bring this church and city together? Well, what is the one city which is also a church that “reigns” over the nations of the world? What one city, which is also a church has diplomatic relations with virtually all the world’s nations? VATICAN CITY!

    The papacy is so influential and powerful that nearly every major country consults her before making major policy moves. “Her large diplomatic corps maintains relations with more than 100 nations.” (U.S. News and World Report, October 30, 1978, p. 24)

    And in 2011, she had diplomatic relations with 178 countries. Only about 20 left for her to have FULL UNION with the whole world!


    IDENTITY 7 – Revelation 17:6 …’and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.’

    What is the one church that people would look at with awe and wonder? The Roman Catholic Church, with all her splendor and pomp. Millions of people flock to the Vatican each year and wonder at the “majesty” and splendor of the place.

    IDENTITY 8 – Revelation 17:9…’And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.’

    Does this match the Roman Catholic Church? Yes. The Vatican is situated in Rome, and early Rome was known as the city of seven hills. Those hills being, Aventine Hill; Caelian Hill; Capitoline Hill; Esquiline Hill; Palatine Hill; Quirinal Hill; Viminal Hill. Are there other cities around the world with seven hills? Yes, but when you take into account ALL of the other characteristics of Babylon the Great, then only the Roman Catholic Church matches them all perfectly.

    So who is the whore of Babylon? The Roman Catholic Church. No other church, religion, kingdom or institution matches her like the Papal Church of Rome does. And God is calling His people out of Babylon and the other fallen churches of the world (Babylon’s daughters).

    It’s not just the Roman Catholic Church that God is calling His people out of. There is a great ecumenical movement happening today that is uniting all churches and faiths together. So if your church accepts this ecumencial movement, then you need to come out of that church also. Revelation 17 says that Babylon has daughters, and her daughters are the Protestant churches that came out of the Roman Catholic Church during the reformation. But are now heading back to Rome! Please heed the call!

    Real-life 'Eye of Sauron' Will Open Up Over Moscow Skyscraper Tower

    Tolkien fans rejoice! The ‘Eye of Sauron’ now is not just fiction – it will light up the skyline of Moscow-City to ominously watch down on the Russian capital as the latest “Hobbit” movie premiers in Russia on Thursday night.

    Fans of the British fiction novelist J. R. R. Tolkien will re-create the Eye of the Dark Lord Sauron from the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy on Wednesday night, according to The Hollywood Reporter Russia.
    The creators from a Russian art-group ‘Svechenie’ dreamed up this wild installation as a tribute to the great saga and its film adaptation.

    They said that the installation of a real life Eye of the Dark Lord of Mordor will “let millions of fans visit Middle-earth”– the fictional world where the adventures of the trilogy take place.


    The light installation of the perilous Eye engulfed in flames will be set up on the roof of the “IQ-quarter” complex at the Gals-development company in Moscow International Business Center "Moscow-City".

    In Tolkien’s saga the lidless Eye was the symbol of power and fear though which the Dark Lord Sauron was able to exert his will over Middle-earth. It was stationed atop the Barad-dûr tower – the fortress from which Sauron watched over the world. The All Seeing Eye is an allusion to mass surveillance and control.


    The epic fantasy adventure films based on Tolkien’s novel were directed by Peter Jackson. The first part of the trilogy - The Fellowship of the Ring - was released in 2001. Following the global success Jackson filmed Tolkien’s prequel novel “The Hobbit. Or There and Back Again.” The movie series features three parts, the last of which was released in December.

    By: Jay Michaelson
    The demonic ‘anti-Santa’ enjoys an unlikely renaissance as we learn to embrace our inner pagan.

    Here’s a question for you. Santa determines who’s been naughty or nice. To the nice ones, he gives presents. What does he do to the naughty ones?

    Answer: he gives them over to Krampus, the demonic anti-Santa whose popularity is suddenly surging thanks to the wonderful irony machine that is the Internet.

    Krampus is for real—in the literary sense, of course, dating back as long as the contemporary Santa Claus (which actually isn’t that long). Mostly, Krampus celebrations—which take every year on Dec. 5, the eve of St. Nicholas’ Day—are just good fun. But a closer look reminds us how little Christ there really is in Christmas.

    Krampus’s name comes from the German word krampen, or claw, and he indeed comes complete with claws, hooves, horns, and various demonic accouterments. His origins are unclear—he emerges out of Alpine folklore, though some accounts have him connected to the Norse goddess Hel, queen of the dead. The character emerges in popular culture as soon as popular culture begins; he’s found in 19thcentury European holiday cards, for example.

    More recently, Krampus has been celebrated in Europe with wild parades—thisone from Austria in 2010 is particularly festive—with revelers dressed as the god marching through the streets and terrifying children (for pretend usually, but sometimes for real). In the last few years, the character has begun to catch on in America, even turning up on a recent episode of American Dad.


    It’s easy to see the appeal for jaded urbanites sick of treacly, major-chord holiday songs and the forced cheerfulness of the season. (Incidentally, that story that suicides spike during Christmastime is, alas, a myth.) Demonic figures terrifying children—and more than terrifying; the myth has him throwing kids into cold rivers, or just eating them alive—are the perfect antidote to Santa, Rudolf, and Mariah Carey.

    But like much surrounding Christmas—the druidic tree, the magical mistletoe plant—the Krampus myth, like that of Santa himself, hearkens back to a much older time, and deeper levels of the human psyche.

    Krampus, obviously, is yet another manifestation of the “Horned God,” a term some anthropologists use to refer to a cluster of deities venerated in pre-Christian religions, and then demonized, quite literally, by Christianity. The god with horns—half human, half beast—is commonplace throughout the ancient Near East. Hathor in Egypt; Moloch in Canaan; even the Biblical Golden Calf may refer to actual bull/cow/deity worship prevalent in the region. Most familiar, perhaps, is the Roman god Pan, associated with rural communities—the word “pagan” basically means “what people in the country do.”

    The worship of some of these deities appears to have included orgiastic rituals: music, wine, sex. Not surprisingly, this did not sit well with the ascetic early Christians. “Put to death therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry,” quoth Colossians 3:5. The horned God was, often, all of these things. He was the embodiment of the animal parts of ourselves—precisely the parts the Greek-influenced, spiritually-minded Christians sought to suppress.



    And so, the horned god became Satan—and others in his demonic retinue. In a way, this wasn’t entirely incorrect. These sexual, earthy, animal-human deities really were opposed to everything the early Christians venerated as holy. They’re not “evil” objectively, of course, but they are indeed evil within the value system of early Christianity.

    Beginning in 1933, with Margaret Murray’s influential book The God of the Witches, neo-Pagans began re-appropriating the “horned god,” a term Murray coined. As you might expect, the horned god of Wicca is best described as “inspired by” the historical sources; much of Wicca is simply made up.

    But not all of it. Krampus is an outstanding example of a pagan motif that just won’t go away. Suppressed, banned, scorned—it seems to speak to something within the human mind (or soul, if you like) that is irrepressible. We all feel lust; we all fear the unknown; and especially in this fiery season of American racial injustice, we all know that humans are capable of evil. Krampus makes manifest the shadow sides of human nature that Christianity seeks to repress.

    In fact, as is well known, Christian holidays are filled with these ancient religious symbols. Throughout history, the Christmas tree was regarded as pagan (a “heathen tradition” said Oliver Cromwell). Germans made the tradition popular, but it only became mainstreamed in Anglo-American culture after Queen Victoria posed for a Christmas portrait in front of one—with her German-born husband, Albert. Many pious Christians still deride the tree today.


    Likewise the Yule log: a symbol of the winter solstice.

    Likewise Halloween, of course.


    And likewise the Easter bunny, a bizarre pagan myth if ever one there was. The name Easter may, or may not, be derived from the Sumerian goddess Inanna, or Ishtar—the source of the Hebrew name Esther. Or it may be derived from the northern goddess Eostre, whose symbol is a rabbit and whose festival is celebrated by the exchange of eggs. Or, who knows? None of the above.

    And so on. It’s remarkable, really, that these primal symbols persist in the present day, despite centuries of suppression.

    Ironically, such symbols may today resonate with the skeptical and atheist among us, precisely because they are transparently mythical, and make no claims to truth. Krampus parades are religious myth divorced from religious truth-claims. They are liberated from any of the ridiculous claims of facticity that make religion seem so stupid—the Earth is really 6,000 years old, Jesus really walked on water—and thus liberated to speak to the pre-rational aspects of ourselves often reserved for books like Where the Wild Things Are. Krampus is the best of myth, without the worst of religion.

    On the surface, Krampus is a great antidote to the Rockettes and Black Friday. But beneath the surface, it is an even stronger one. Repressing our instincts doesn’t lead to wisdom, just as wisely expressing them doesn’t lead to chaos. Here’s an idea. As the nights grow longer and the days grow cold, let’s ditch the stocking stuffers, and express our inner Krampus.

    Florida Agrees to Distribute Satanic Temple Materials To School Children

    The Satanic Temple has announced that it will provide pamphlets on Satanism to students in Florida, following the school board’s decision permitting the distribution of religious materials.

    Among the materials that are set to be distributed are pamphlets on the philosophy, practice of Satanism, the Satanic Temple’s tenets. Also, the sect tells school children about their legal rights to choose to practice Satanism, according to the official press release.


    Earlier this month, the school system made a decision to let any religious and atheist materials be provided in schools.



    The Temple said that although it does not agree with the school board’s decision to allow religious materials in schools, it will continue “to ensure that pluralism is respected whenever the Church/State division is breached.”

    Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves explains: “We think the responsible thing to do is to ensure that these students are given access to a variety of differing religious opinions, as opposed to standing idly by while one religious voice dominates the discourse and delivers propaganda to youth.”



    “I am quite certain that all of the children in these Florida schools are already aware of the Christian religion and its Bible, and this might be the first exposure these children have to the actual practice of Satanism. We think many students will be very curious to see what we offer,” Greaves added.
