I was watching a program about some geneticists that had through working backwards in mitochondrial mutations, which occur like clockwork, determined that somewhere between 70,000 and 80,000 years ago the human population collapsed to just a few thousand. They then went looking for a cause. Well lookey here, the Yellowstone eruption, arguably one of the largest volcanic eruptions known to man occured about 74,000 years ago. Hmmmm that seems mighty close to the timing of the "close" pass by Mars. Maybe we get just enough of an extra tug on old Earths skin to cause some disruptions? Maybe the govt. has just been trying to keep us busy before the shit hits the fan.

Sounds like 2003 could be a BLAST!

Nature does seem to have a way of cleaning up the dirty little problems caused by out-of-control species. Too bad she doesn't care whether they're bulls or bears.

They just had a documentary about the megavolcanoes.

Had a friend from Princeton from Tahoe who got killed in a boating accident there, but before he died he took me from Tahoe down to Whitney portal, pASSt Mono Lake, etc.
That whole area, like Yellowstone is an ancient cauldera (sp?).

Doubt if Mars gets close enuff to sway the oceans. There's an earthquake theory that says that when the moon approaches the earth closely in its orbits the seas put additional pressure on the continental shelf plates and trigger quakes thereby.

There've been some cataclysmic events in the western US, geologically speaking. Another one, a bursting of a huge inland lake that covered much? of Montana, when an ice dam gave way, carved out the rugged terrain of Eastern Washington as the torrent swept to the sea. The escarpments of the Columbia R gorge, and the "coulees" of Grand Coulee dam, etc. Had a waterfall there that made Niagra or Victoria Falls look like a PIKER.

Anyway, the point about Mars is that ironically, we are about to go to war in a year when this symbol of war, death and violence approaches earth as closely as ever.

This one is the cloesest but they happen every 12 to 15 years, last "closest" was in 1990 freaky eh...
"We are completely dependant on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money (at the request of the consumer) we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system.... It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects remedied very soon." --Robert H. Hemphill, Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank,1938...

War a consequence of sin.

The greater the sin of a generation the greater the War.

Can anyone doubt how great the coming War will be ?

And since national combatants (those fighting for their countries) are doing their duty and in a sense carrying out the will of God they do not have the stain of sin when they kill.

Neither members of the German army or the Allied army in WWII were guilty of any sin whatsoever when they killed in a necesary and legal fashion in battle.

Un-necesary slaugter of civilians or even other combatatants is a sin though.

It's important to remember this when talking about military personnel next year.

They carry out the will of God and are doing their duty for their country and this is not sin.

They should not be blamed for the killing that is about to ensue on the planet. They are not responsible --- they are victims if anything because of what killing does to their own minds and being.

Most soldiers are upstanding people who do not desire to kill but they carry out their mission for their country as they should. They're just serving a necesary role.

The blame goes to people who sin and that's every single one of us on the planet, You, me, Doc, Ike, Machinehead, Bill Clinton, Madonna, and even the Pope.

And what is sin ? It's simply an offense to God and by way of that an offense to other people.

The 10 commandments are not 10 suggestions but a model of how humans should behave.

They are largely ignored today.

People interpret them in whatever manner that suits them.

This imbalance in the scales will soon have to be put back in balance.

Same goes for financial matters. A Bear market is necesary to correct the sin of greed accumulated over the years.

What AG and the Gang Of 22 do to try and fight the Bear Market is laughable because they are in essence fighting God himself and his way of repairing the world and the human race thru the punishment of loss of money.

It just goes to prove how evil and anti-God the folks are who run things today.

That's why I buy PUTZ and laugh at them because in God's eyes they are sooo foolish looking. I guess someone has to playthe role of the fool though. AG is as good as any else for the role.

Every day when financial markets open is like a kind of War. People win and people lose.

The Bear market is the equivalent of military conflict except the instead of death and wounds the punishment is loss of money.

All of this punishment goes towards re-balancing the sin-scales.

People who think there are no consequences for sin are sadly mistaken.

Just like Bullz who think that there are no consequences for massive financial bubbles -- every good stollie knows that's incorrect.

There are always conseqeunces and War is one of them.

War is a re-payment of sins.

It's no coincidence that WMD's (weapons of mass destruction) exist in the world and are proliferating today unlike any other time in the past. The amout of sin is so large today that it will take huge weapons of this kind to balance the scales.

Prayer and repentance can lessen the punishment but it's very late. Maybe too late.

In any case God will not let the human race will be wiped out. Ths whole matter will pass and we'll rebuild and have a new Bull market and peace.

I wish all Stoolies Peace and hope you can avoid anxiety over the punishments to come soon.
