Plate Tectonics SUPPORTS my point, doesnt counter it. If the mountains were much flatter and lower(which I believe they were) then the possibility of a world-wide flood increases exponentially. Raise the sea beds, lower the mountains. You got enough water for a world-wide flood. Which by the way would also rip apart any evidence of billions of years.

On Wednesday, July 15, 2015, NASA released the first close images of Pluto recently taken by the New Horizons space probe. What the photos revealed was a shock to conventional uniformitarian scientists who believe in a 4.5-billion-year-old solar system. Over the past half century, planetary scientists have become accustomed to finding many impact craters on the surfaces of bodies in the solar system. However, from the preliminary photos of Pluto’s surface, these scientists have found far fewer craters than they expected. Earlier wide-field views of half of Pluto’s surface seem to indicate a few craters, but the first close-up region examined appeared to have no craters.

Craters appear to be the results of collisions with smaller bodies. Most scientists think that the solar system formed approximately 4.5 billion years ago, so they interpret craters in terms of their accumulation during that time. Supposedly, many of the impacts were from leftover material that did not form into planets. If true, then the rate at which craters formed was much greater in the early solar system than it is today. Some surfaces, such as Earth’s and Jupiter’s satellite Io, have relatively few craters. Planetary scientists explain this by geological processes that remove or cover craters. On Earth, the main geological processes responsible for this are believed to be the sedimentation and igneous activity accompanying plate tectonics, and weathering and erosion. On Io, the principle mechanism of crater removal is volcanism—Io has many active volcanoes that change the surface regularly. Some surfaces of solar system bodies, such as Earth’s moon, have regions of high crater density and regions of low crater density. This is explained by volcanism that affected parts of them, such as on our moon, and not others.

Planetary scientists use crater density to judge the relative ages of various surfaces and regions. The lunar maria (pronounced MAR-ee-uh) appear to be volcanic plains and have far fewer craters on them than on the heavily cratered lunar highlands. Presumably, the volcanism and related processes that formed the lunar maria covered over many of the craters originally there. Hence, the maria are younger than the lunar highlands.

Similarly, the craterless surface of Io is very young, as evidenced by the ongoing volcanism that we have witnessed occurring on its surface. Europa, another large satellite of Jupiter, only has a few craters, suggesting that its surface has been reworked, though not as recently as Io’s. The two other large satellites of Jupiter, Ganymede and Callisto, have increasing crater densities, suggesting still older surfaces, but surfaces that have been reworked to some degree. The densities of craters on the surfaces of these four large satellites of Jupiter increase with distance from the planet, as do the inferred ages of their surfaces. This disparity is explained in terms of tidal flexing of Jupiter’s strong gravity that heats those satellites’ interiors to permit volcanic activity. The tidal heating decreases with distance from Jupiter.

With the exception of Io, every surface on solar system bodies that we had examined, planets, their satellites, asteroids, and even comets, appear to have impact craters, suggesting to most planetary scientists that they all have great age. This is why the lack of craters on Pluto is such a shock. Being far from the sun, Pluto ought to be very cold and hence not have experienced recent volcanism. Any primordial heat would have long ago dissipated, if the solar system were 4.5 billion years old. The density of Pluto is very small, 2.0 gm/cc, which is consistent with a roughly half-and-half rock/ice composition. This density will not allow for long-lived radioactive elements, which allegedly are the source of Earth’s internal heat to provide for the continuous geological activity during Earth’s supposed 4.5-billion-year history. Nor is Pluto near any other large bodies that could raise tides within Pluto to heat its interior and thus drive surface geological activity as supposedly is the case with Jupiter’s large satellites. Hence, there ought not to be any significant geological activity sufficient to remove craters on Pluto’s surface.

Compounding this problem for a 4.5-billion-year age for the solar system is the fact that Pluto is located in a particularly crowded part of the solar system. Pluto orbits the sun in a region with many other large objects that are too small to be planets and are also orbiting the sun. Presumably, thus far we have found only the larger members of this second asteroid belt, the first belt being mainly between the orbits of the planets Mars and Jupiter. We would expect that for each of these bodies in this second asteroid belt there would be many more much smaller bodies. Therefore, Pluto ought to be undergoing impacts today at a higher rate than most other objects in other portions of the solar system.

Planetary scientists who are committed to belief in a 4.5-billion-year-old solar system are at a complete loss to explain the lack of craters on Pluto. But the situation is even bleaker for them. Pluto has a tenuous nitrogen atmosphere. This nitrogen is leaking away from Pluto’s atmosphere, so it must be continually replaced. One can claim that the unknown mechanism driving the geological activity on Pluto also is bringing nitrogen from Pluto’s interior to the surface where it is outgassed. But Pluto is a small body, and it has only a finite amount of nitrogen. It is possible that after billions of years that all of its nitrogen should have been depleted long ago.

There are mountains on Pluto’s surface that are 11,000 ft (3,300 m) high. The rock/ice composition of Pluto probably could support such a tall structure with Pluto’s modest gravity if Pluto’s interior is very cold. However, if Pluto is as warm and geologically active as inferred, then the rock/ice structure of Pluto could not support such mountains for long. Therefore, these mountains must be very young. All of these considerations demonstrate that Pluto is a very young object, far younger than the 4.5 billion years that most scientists assume.

Charon, Pluto’s largest satellite, offered stunning news too. Charon appears to have a few craters, but far fewer than expected. Its surface also is gashed by a large chasm, suggesting recent or ongoing geological activity. This, too, was unexpected in a solar system that is 4.5 billion years old.

We may yet find a few craters on Pluto’s surface, but those would be inconsequential to the conclusions that we can draw. It is very clear that Pluto is young, far younger than the billions of years generally assumed. While this is unexpected and hence unexplainable for evolutionists, this is something that we might expect if the universe is only thousands of years old as the Bible indicates. The preliminary results from the New Horizons space probe are good news indeed for the recent creation model.

Narnia verses Harry Potter

A while back, I encountered a question on Yahoo Answers where someone inquired as to why some people have a negative attitude toward the magic displayed in Harry Potter but seem to have no problem with the magic displayed in the Chronicles of Narnia. I decided to submit an answer for this question, but as it happened, my answer turned into more of an essay, and the topic was closed before I submitted it. However, for those of you who have wondered the same thing, I decided to post it here with some minor modifications. Just my two cents, but I think there’s some food for thought.

To begin, despite some claims from other posters on Yahoo Answers, C.S. Lewis was a Christian and the similarities between Narnia and items in the Bible was intentional. They are not strictly allegory, where one thing in Narnia equals something else in the Bible. They are called “supposals.” The basic idea was that Lewis wondered what would happen if God had created another world and chose to die and rise again to save that world as He did ours. Note that the magic in the Chronicles is almost always coming directly from Aslan if it portrayed as good (There are a few exceptions to this), so it could be considered a metaphor for the miracles of God. The witch and her magic are depicted as evil.

On to Harry Potter. These books are very well written and J.K Rowling’s style is fun and witty. They are definitely entertaining books...but I do have some difficulty with them, and only part of it has to do with the magic they contain. The difficulty is actually threefold:

1. The Magic:
The difficulty with the magical elements in the Harry Potter books is that the magic is being portrayed as being a skill that can be learned by children in our world, if they possess the predisposition for it (Yes, I know this statement is vastly simplified). In the Chronicles, the children almost never practice magic themselves, and once when Lucy tries to, in Voyage of the Dawn Treader, she ends up probably destroying one of her friendships. Humans aren’t meant to practice magic.

2. The Violence:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (or Philosopher’s Stone, in England) started out mildly enough. The final confrontation is a bit eerie, but nothing too horribly violent, though we do have an instance of a human being possessed by a malevolent spirit (but that fits more into category #1). By Book Two, Chamber of Secrets, we have a young girl (also possessed) killing chickens (not to eat), and quite a bloody confrontation in the climactic scene. Skip on to Book Four, Goblet of Fire, and any semblance of these being child-appropriate books seems to be lost. We have a teacher casting illegal spells, including murder and torture (albeit on a spider) in a classroom, apparently with the benevolent headmaster’s consent. We have the murders of several characters, one another student from the school; Harry’s blood being taken for a foul piece of magic (which, at least, is depicted as being evil in the scene); a servant cutting off his hand as part of the same piece of sorcery...the violence in this book keeps getting worse...and books Five and Six don’t ease up on it much (In Six Harry accidentally casts a spell that essentially has the same effect as repeatedly stabbing another student). At the time of this article, Book Seven has yet to be released. Is there violence in the Narnia books? Yes, but you will notice it is tempered. Possibly the most terrifying scene in the series is the sacrifice of Aslan, but you will note that the girls look away at the moment the witch actually kills him.

3. The Morality:
Quite apart from magic or violence in either story, is the morality that is being taught in either series. I have heard the Harry Potter series heralded as books with incredibly strong morals, but a quick examination of the books reveals this statement to be patently false. Harry consistently lies, to his teachers, to his friends, to Dumbledore the headmaster. He and his friends steal potions ingredients from Professor Snape (But who cares? We don’t like Snape, so it’s ok, right?). In fact, he’s rewarded for the first rule he breaks. When the entire class is told they will be expelled if they try to fly on their broomsticks without a teacher present, Harry takes off on his broom after Draco Malfoy, who has stolen something from a friend (But hey, it’s ok for a kid to risk life and limb for a noble cause, yes?). Not only is he not expelled, he’s REWARDED, given a prestigious place on one of the school sports teams.

Not convinced? Well, how about Professor Lupin, who neglects to mention to the headmaster that a convicted murderer is quite possibly sneaking into the school disguised as a dog? Why doesn’t Lupin say anything? Because it would be EMBARRASSING to him, and lose him some of the headmaster’s trust (which he doesn’t actually deserve because he’s been lying to the man for years anyway). But hey, it’s only Harry’s life and the lives of other students that’s at stake, and the convict has only gotten into the school twice already...so no big deal.

So what’s the difference? Don’t kids in the Narnia books get up to mischief, too? Of course they do. Digory, one of the children, does something incredibly foolish, awakens an evil witch, and brings her into Narnia with him, ruining the newly creating world before it’s a day old. But there are consequences. He has to face Aslan and explain exactly what happened. He’s required to complete a task to help mend the damage. When Edmund sides with the White Witch against his family, he’s almost killed for it (They left that bit out of the movie, but the concept was there.), and Aslan has to die in his place. The kids in Narnia make mistakes, but there are always consequences, consequences which are frequently and curiously lacking in the Harry Potter stories.

When I have kids, I want them to know that God is the only acceptable source of supernatural power in this world. I don’t want to expose them to violent scenes before they’re old enough to deal with them. And I want them to know that there are consequences to the choices they make.

There is plenty of evidence to support a worldwide flood. How do you think those dinosaurs got up in the mountains and died there? Why do we find fossils of aquatic animals like trilobites and such in almost all the rocks in mountains? Is that not evidence that water once covered the whole earth? Also, things like the Grand Canyon could be alternately seen as evidence to support a worldwide flood because if as much water as the Bible claims came out of the earth, it may have been able to dig out channels like that in a much shorter time span than geologists believe happened. I'm not claiming to have any evidence to support this, but it's something we should look at.

[supersport explains the fossil record]

But anyway, as I said, evolutionists -- the geniuses they are -- equate size with how primitive a creature is. For years darwinists claimed that horses started out as a tiny dog-sized creature and then as they became more evolved -- ie..more complex -- they grew larger. Likewise they say the rat and the human had a common ancestor -- which obviously was a smallish rodent-type human. It was only as this creature became more evolved/complex that it grew in size. (Gotta love this logic, don't you?)

But let's move on to the geologic column: The basic story when it comes to fossils in the geologic column is that the lower strata is older than the higher stratas. And since the geologic column supposedly represents millions of years of Earth's history, then obviously the fossils in each of the layers must be the same age as the layer in which they are found. But what evolutionists like to point out is the progression from the most "simple" (ie...small) organisms, such as bacteria and worms -- to the most complex (ie..large) organisms -- such as vertebrates and mammals.

So, what they've evidently found in the fossil record is a progression from the small to the large, starting from the lower levels and working upwards.

So how do mixed nuts work into this? Glad you asked.

My wife bought a large can of mixed nuts the other day and I've been indulging in them. Of course, like most cans of mixed nuts, the ratio of peanuts to other nuts such as almonds, cashews and pecans is out of whack -- with far too many peanuts. As a result I noticed that shaking the can has a way of bringing the larger nuts to the top.

Voila!

Interestingly, it's this concept that seems quite plausible in regards to the geologic column; whenever the earth moves or the crust shifts or trembles, it could very well be that the smaller organisms (ie.."primitive") fall through the cracks and find themselves in lower strata more easily than larger organisms might. Same concept when water flows down through the earth: it's certainly more likely to drag smaller/"primitive" fossils downward than it is to drag larger fossils.

This might explain why single-celled organisms find their way to the lowest levels, followed by trilobites fish, crabs, snails, birds, small mammals, etc. This could give the impression of a neatly-sorted geologic column, no?

Why have I never heard this explanation from evolutionists?

It all boils down to one thing. People are trying in vain to explain the origins of the universe and the world without God, and it is just impossible. What that boils even further to is what's really sad. Not wanting any divine superior to rule over us or tell us what to do--to just do as you please without any restrictions of right or wrong. Whether this is admitted or not, that is the real 'crux' reason for why people's minds migrate toward the theories of the 'Big Bang' and Darwinism. No matter how hard one may try and rationalize that it is pure 'honesty', they will never convince me that the root of the matter is to be 'free' from worshipping an all intelligent master designer.

While many churches have switched from Halloween activities to alternative events on Halloween such as Harvest parties, countless Christians still allow their children to celebrate Halloween with door-to-door trick or treating and dressing up in scary costumes. Christian actor Kirk Cameron (Left Behind films and Fireproof) has come out publicly defending Halloween. In an interview in a popular online Christian magazine, Cameron stated that Christians “should have the biggest Halloween party on your block.” Cameron said he had no problem with Christians dressing up in devil, ghost, and other traditional Halloween costumes because they could do it as a way to witness to unbelievers.
But is this church-sponsored horror a good idea? There are a number of reasons it is not. For one thing, terror can kill. When my husband was a teenager, the family next door to him lost their toddler one Halloween when the little one opened the door to trick-or-treaters. Their hideous appearance and shrieks so traumatized the child that he literally dropped dead on the spot. That may be a rare example, but the fact remains that terrorizing children is dangerous.
Church-sponsored horror isn’t a new phenomenon. My husband’s Lutheran church in New York always sponsored a “Chamber of Horrors” when he was a boy, complete with fluorescent skeletons, scary pop-ups, peeled grapes to simulate dead eyeballs, and a bowl of cold spaghetti that was supposed to be . . . well, you know. Anyway, they made you stick your hand into it, and any number of kids spent the rest of the night throwing up.

Chances are if the government kills your parents for being communists you are going to become a communist and hate anyone who acted to prevent communism because that killed your parents.

So it's Ok to kill children ?

Posted by Metecury

Not from a moral stand point of course, it's not ok but in the context op talked about it was not done for the sake of committing an immoral act, it was done for practical purposes. Does that make it ok? Not really, no.

Take ISIS, they are training and indoctrinating children from the age of three/four, they will most likely grow up to be terrorists and kill people, as a matter of fact child soldiers are a thing and they do not have to wait that long because they are used in executions and war actions.

Is it wrong to kill them because of their age? Would it be moral to let them grow up knowing that one day they will kill people? Because that is a given, they are being raised in the ideology by their parents who are fighting the west, they will never be functioning members of society.

Is it their fault or decision? Not really, the poor bastards were born into that nonsense but this does not make them any less dangerous or any less of a problem for us all.

Now on the case at hand, on top of the fear of the children of communists becoming a threat, which makes sense, there is also the intention to cause fear in those who would join the ideology and attempt revolution by making an example of those who did. It was not slaughter for the sake of slaughter.

Is it morally right? Not really but then again politics has little to do with morals and it is not the most righteous side that wins.

To let the children of communists go free and become communists later in life would be irresponsible as not stomping out the revolution would be. Then again, some would argue that there is a chance at reintegration and that an alternative could be possible, which I agree with by the way; however a civil war is a nasty business which often sees atrocities on both sides, I feel that a moral judgement is not exactly possible or advisable.

Atheists: Why do you wish USA to become a boring socialist country?

How are we supposed to get the good video games about guns if you try to turn it into a wussy scandinavian coward country that cant even defend itself properly without the military of the great USA. The EU has enemies of Russia and even USA Donald Trump dont like EU very much.

I mean Scandinavia is like a place you go to summer camp or some far away island. Not a place you go to do your work. So it should just be left alone. I live in Norway, but its basically a system of freeloaders. And USA should always have a hectic critical striving loaded system, with stress that can be tough on families so that they encourage poor people to work, honest work i mean. While the more lazier workers in Scandinavia are just that. Welfare checks, nothing really good is created. I mean its not like we have Microsoft, Xbox. Well those are all that i can come up with for the moment.

In terms of running a powerful state. Socialism would just make everyone a winner. No need to better the powerful armageddon nation when you can just be a freeloader. Which is not what USA should be about. You have to be number 1 afterall. Europe is having russians as enemies because europeans are technically freeloaders, and thats why north africans and criminals come there, aswell as imams making it into their new home.

Having a strong democratic authoritarian ship while banning one religion while being tolerant of others seems like the best way to go forward. Too bad most atheists are liberals.

Someone You Know May Be A Devil In Disguise

[2 Corinthians 11:14-15] "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions."

Some of the biggest freaks - and some of the biggest whoremongers are in the Church. This is not a guess, this is a FACT!

If you're a Christian who's trying to live right, you owe it to yourself to not be naive and to be completely aware of the different personality types that are in church today.

The church is like a sheep's pen. It's where the sheep gather and congregate to do sheepy things. But where there's sheep there's bound to be predators. And predators today have gotten smart.

Church sheep attract church wolves. And just because they don't look or act wolfish doesn't mean they're not!

JUST CHECK FOR THEIR WOLFISH WAYS BEHIND THAT SHEEP FUR:

1. Showing slackness when it comes to living out an authentic salvation experience.

2. More worldly acting than they are Christian. In fact, they're so worldly that you wouldn't know they were a Christian unless they directly told you. There's no other identifying behavior that connects them with the saints. These would be your believers who are still running out and getting tatted up - still attending secular music concerts - still drinking and getting high. And when challenged on these obvious sinful practices, they'll pull out the 'judge not' card. Or they'll say that Jesus places everything under the blood, therefore there's no need for them to stop sinning. I call these 'Christian sinners' (and yes, that's an oxymoron).

3. Mixing of Christianity with Hinduism, Buddhism or New Age beliefs.

4. The use of phrases such as 'judge not' and 'God knows my heart.'

5. Always the victim of someone or some church that 'did them wrong.'

6. Acting as if they're too holy or too spiritual to be bothered with the rest of us mere Christian mortals.

7. Claims to be saved yet has a very elementary understanding or very little knowledge at all of holy scriptures. (How you gon' claim to love God - yet hate His word???)

8. Goes to church every time the church doors are open - yet continuously living in sexual sins, won't stop fornicating, cheats on their spouse with other church wolves (members), masturbates without guilt, dabbling in porn, etc. ***People like this are really dangerous, because they've been thoroughly inoculated against God's saving power, and are virtually guaranteed to bust hell wide open when the time comes. Steer VERY clear of such wolves in sheeps clothing - lest you find yourself on that bus trip to hell along with them!

I could write an endless list here. Perhaps you can even think of a few to add in the comments stream. Bottom line is, just because they claim to be saved doesn't mean they have been.

I warned you before and I'll keep doing it:There are many demons on assignment hiding out among the saints! And it behooves you if you're serious about your salvation in Christ to know who's on God's team and who's not. How can you tell the difference? It's simple:

"Beware of false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thisles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit." Matthew 7:15-17

Always check for their fruit! That's how you will recognize them.

[Pretty much the perfect illustration of how the alt-right went so far right it somehow ended up rejecting Randian competition and individualism]

Globohomogenization is human id accelerationism, corrupting natural human emotions and desires — envy, anxiety, female hypergamy — into monstrous deformations that ultimately dehumanizes as it propels people to emotional brinkmanship that exceeds the carrying capacity of their amygdalae.

Instead of the manageable stress of fitting into a social scene that might extend four town blocks and maybe one town over, the average globalized Westerner has her brain tricked to perceive competition with the global village hordes — millions of people, including those who occupy the farthest right and left tails of the human worth bell curve, from high SMV celebs to freakish cross-dressers, christcucks, and lactating men — and she simply isn’t equipped to handle that social input load without getting depressed and hooked on Big Pharma’s poison pills.

Out of Nod makes a good point about envy being pathologically amplified by globalism. One of the motivating drivers of the Acela-class affluent SWPL rootless cosmopolitan shitlib demand for Zero Border Control and embrace of GloboHomoism is so that they have an ever-broader avenue to access their need for a winner-take-all social status whoring competition in which they see themselves coming out on top of the global order. The White shitlib truly thinks herself morally and intellectually superior to all others (don’t let her Black Lives Matter shuck n hivemind act fool you) and what better way to finally prove that superiority than by winning on a world stage?

A “winner” pushes for more competition. Only “losers” would want to restrict or regulate competition (so the shitlib and deracinated cuck rationalizes). “Winners” don’t fear global competition because nothing could possibly threaten their winning station in life (largely paid for by imported cheap laborers). The religion of GloboHomoism thus becomes a social status marker for credentialist suckups whose lucky talent for abstract thinking has served them well in the post-scarcity data-driven borgonomy.

But it’s an ego-warped illusion. The more shitlibs push for globohomoism, the more they hitch their nation’s fate to inevitable decay and widespread poverty. And there are only so many gated communities to run to before the swarm engulfs its sponsor. Even now there are stories of frazzled urban hypercredentialist white libs cracking under the pressure of the Asian onslaught to their kids’ schools and colleges. The blight of despair won’t be contained to BadWhites alone. Meth ameliorates the pain of dispossession for rural Whites; Xanaz and yoga and Salon articles do the same for urban Whites.

...

So the embrace of Globohomoism by effete, low T White shitlibs has less to do with a principled Randian stand for no-holds-barred worldwide competition than it does with globalism’s neat trick of removing all reason and accountability from the shitlibs’ sphere of activity. Globohomoism essentially turns the economy into a woman. Shitlib Whites aren’t so much succeeding in the global economy as they are enjoying its superficial privileges while passing the consequences of their unaccountable failures onto future generations.

Globohomogenized envy encourages people to eat their nation’s seed corn in the impossible quest to become a member of the 0.0001%ers at the commanding heights of the new global order.

We have probably all heard of the Killer Whale at SeaWorld. This Orca has been involved in three human deaths, and is to blame for two of them definitely. But perhaps the greatest horror of the story is the Whale is being let back on stage! Giving it the chance to kill another person when it so pleases. Sure, we know the arguments, "It was just playing," and "it didn't know better." Give me a break.

God has very specific instructions on the matter! All the way back to Noah, just immediately after the Global Deluge, after his family had exited the Ark, God gave mankind the orders of the new world. Look here:

And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in The Image of God made He man. And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein." —Genesis 9:1-7.

That is a lot of text, I know, so let me quote part of it again. Genesis 9:5, "And surely YOUR BLOOD of YOUR LIVES will I REQUIRE; at the HAND OF EVERY BEAST will I require it, and at the HAND OF MAN; at the hand of EVERY MAN'S BROTHER will I require the LIFE OF MAN." If a human life is snuffed out at the paw/claw of an animal, that animal has forfeited its right to live! This Orca, this Killer Whale, must DIE!!!

I am sorry for all the caps here, but I am furious about this Whale, a known Killer, not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES, 3x, has been let free of God's law without even a punishment! Nature lovers have a double standard! "Oh, these whales are so intelligent, they need equal rights as any human." But then when they kill a person, "Oh, they didn't understand what they were doing." Which is it? Smart or not??? Can't be both.

Plus, animals have ZERO rights. Why? There can't be rights without RESPONCIBILITY!!! Are these whales Responsible for anything? No. If the whales act up and don't listen, the show is cancelled. Would your boss at work cancel something just because you won't listen to him? No, you'll either make a fool of yourself, or be fired, or both! You are responsible, these whales are not. They're treated as a two-year-old, who isn't responsible for much of anything yet.

Yes, I know we all don't know whales, neither do I, but I do know horses! So I put it to you, are your pet dogs and cats, or horses if you have them, are they Responsible for anything? I can tell you right now they're not. Sure, if you train them to do something at a show and they won't do it that day, they can't really be punished, no matter how upset you are. They can learn what makes you happy and what will make you unhappy, but that is because they love you and don't want whatever punishment for breaking the rules will be. But responsible they are NOT!

I say GET BACK IN LINE and stop doing what is ILLEGAL by God's standards. God IS the Authority after all!!!

Earlier this month, Family Research Council senior fellow Robert Maginnis appeared on SkyWatchTV to discuss “the occult influence on D.C. elites.”

Maginnis warned that even the most well-intentioned people who go to Washington, D.C. to work in public service are susceptible to the evil forces that he said dominate the city, citing both witchcraft and homosexuality.

“If you look around Washington, you have Dupont Circle, famous for being the center of homosexuality in Washington, you have all sorts of activities down there that are pretty souring,” he said. “You have a lot of witchcraft. You have a lot of hedonism. You have all the issues that—when I think of Sodom and Gomorrah, I often think of Washington, D.C. in the same thought.”

Maginnis, who previously said that witches “advise the senior leadership of the country,” urged viewers to pray for President Trump to ensure that he doesn’t give in to corrupting influences.

Voodoo - not Christianity - is the number one influence over the African-American community right now. (The same goes for African and Caribbean cultures too.)

Many of today's youth - and adults - are under the direct demonic influence of African voodoo; and they don't even know it.

I'll be talking more about this in my upcoming ebook. Because many are totally ignorant to the greatest spiritual warfare in our generation taking place right in front of them. And they haven't the slightest clue.

Voodoo influences just about all of modern day black culture: including our music, festivals, college frats and sororities, street gangs, the drug culture and our entertainment; especially the rappers and singers.



Take the recent photo shoot by this popular rapper in the image above. To the untrained mind this is just some guy posing with a weird dark background. But I've been studying the occult influence within the entertainment industry long enough to know what this photo shoot REALLY represents.

This rapper is letting you know exactly what spiritual influence he's placed himself under; and he's giving honor to the deity he most likely serves the most. He's paying respect to the voodoo god called Eleggua.

And he's not the only one. A lot of your favorite rappers - both male and female - pay homage to various voodoo gods and spirits. When you know what to look for you can easily see it, even in the colors of the beaded bracelets that they quietly wear.

The Church has to get more astute at recognizing the demonic spiritual influences that are over our youth. Many of you reading this are raising children in church: and while your kid sits in church every Sunday, they're really under the dark spiritual influence of these voodoo practicing entertainers.

Some of you are under this influence yourself. And once that door gets opened it's only a matter of time before your child is entertaining demonic spirits in their life.

So you need to make it your business to know what's influencing your child and more importantly how to nullify that influence by covering your household under the blood of Jesus Christ.

Start taking your Christian faith and the power it contains seriously. These are not the days to get caught slipping. And if you find yourself being entertained by demons, you need to clean up your act.

Stop straddling the fence and make an affirmative decision to roll with Christ till the end. The bible makes it clear that you cannot be influenced by Jesus Christ and demonic spirits at the same time!

"You cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demons, too. You cannot eat at the Lord's Table and at the table of demons, too." 1 Corinthians 10:21

Be informed, be faithful, be aware and be educated. That's how you escape the deadly traps of the enemy in this hour.

"So that Satan will not outsmart us. For we are familiar with his evil schemes." 2 Corinthians 2:11

"If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don't understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God." 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

The Son of Fate

I am the Son of Fate. Fate had given birth to me on a stormy night, hoping that her Son would be victorious in everything he did. For a long while, everything was great. Until, one day, I found a horrible group of people that threatened my very well-being. And for what, you may ask? For being born, unto Fate, as a White, “Cis-Gendered” Male. Just because I’m white, I must collectively pay for the sins of my Fore-Fathers? And just because I’m a male, I must collectively pay for the heinous crimes done by my people?

I thought is was all fucking stupid. People hate me because I’m me? People want me to atone for other people’s sins because I have something in common with them? What happened to Justice?

Apparently, I’m to “check my privilege”. Because I am a man, I am not aloud to silently admire an admittedly attractive woman? Because I’m white, I should not speak of my upbringings and my achievements, because it’ll “oppress” and “trigger” these fucking douchebags?

Well I say NAY. I am proud of who I am. I am proud that I am me. I would not change a damned thing about me, even if it meant the world. I’m complacent with being white, and I’m proud to be a man. I am humbled by others for my prestigious academic achievements thus far, and I will continue to push forward to become Great. I will fight every obstacle that dare interfere with who I am and what I am to become: A Middle Class White Man.

The left-wing of one group will always become natural allies to the right-wing of a rival. The Left wing has the goal of destroying whatever society they are a part of, and that naturally appeals to the rivals of that society
It's not just Asian feminists, but you often hear of "progressive Muslim reformists" making alliances with neo-cons/zionists. In China, far left-wing anarchists are informally supported through the NED. In Iran, one of the largest Marxist groups is also funded by the US.

This is just sickening folks. Some apostate Bible publisher thought they'd cash in big by marketing The Martin Luther King Remembrance Edition Bible. It is a trustworthy King James Version, which makes it even more insulting to God. How dare anyone exploit the Word of God to honor such a wicked, Christ-rejecting, unrepentant man as Martin Luther King. Few American realize that Martin Luther King Jr. was a Communist, involved in at least 60 known Communist front organizations.

Martin Luther King was an unsaved heretic, who openly denied the Virgin Birth, the Bodily Resurrection and the Deity of Jesus Christ. These are all fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith. You can read King's very own blasphemous writings in The Papers of Martin Luther King Jr. If king is to be honored, then why not publish The Adolf Hitler Remembrance Edition while you're at it? . . . or The Hugh Hefner Remembrance Edition?

One of the saddest days in American history was when a holiday was established to honor Martin Luther King. Why would the American people want to honor a Communist? In case you didn't know, Communism is synonymous with moral decay and subversion, which explains why abortionists, homosexuals and feminists have all made King an icon. King's widow, Coretta Scott King, spent the remaining years of her life advocating rights for homosexuals. Real Christian huh?

We had Ernest Scared Stupid and Spiderman (the new movie) that the kids would watch, and the night terrors began. My oldest son only had one, and insisted there was a little green boy and girl sitting on his bed that night that he watched spiderman. Then the nightly night terrors started with my 2 year old. I removed all the demonic movies and cast the demons out of the house, and they were gone that night, after months of it going on nightly. He would wake up at midnight every night and sit up screaming and not recognize me, or anything else, this would go on from anywhere between 10 min and an hour. He saw green spiders and snakes when it would happen. I know this was demonic activity from the movies and from people that would come over that were dealing with demons in their lives.
