(Shocking Videos) | Prophecy (Before It's News) 23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ 26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ Matthew 24:23-28 Lyn Leahz | Before It’s News | November 6, 2013 In the desert? “An alien Messiah will come for us!” Let me explain something to you. And if that wasn’t enough, he (Satan) went even further and created space aliens from other worlds—influencing Hollywood, music, and more! Space aliens are Satan’s rendition of the frightening looking cherubim from heaven. His reason is quite simple! A clip from my end times novel, Soul Deceiver, explains my ‘wheel within a wheel’ thought process quite well. Out of the blue, Walt asked, “How soon do you think the rapture of the church is going to happen?” Walt nodded, “I agree one hundred percent. Walt posed another interesting question, “Now, what do you think the rapture of the church will be like?” “I’m not sure, but I’ve always tried imagining. “It’s hard to tell.

Tolkien Gateway Alter Your Genes and Cure any Disease The new age gurus, spiritualists or visionaries talk about the power of thoughts and how it manifests into reality. But when the same theory is affirmed by someone from a scientific background, it helps bridge the gap between science and spirituality. Bruce Lipton believes that humans can control their genes by changing their environment Bruce Lipton, a cellular biologist and bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, advocates the idea that we have significant control over our biology, and with our intentions and beliefs we can ‘reprogram’ or ‘control’ our genes and our lives. This challenges the traditional scientific belief that genes control life and people attribute their illnesses to genetic dysfunctions. For instance if cancer, heart failure or some other disease runs in the family, it doesn’t necessarily mean that a younger member of the family would also get those diseases, contradictory to the belief that diseases are hereditary.

The Encyclopedia of Arda The Encyclopedia of Arda is a personal project - a tribute to and a celebration of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. The site is evolving into an illustrated hypertext encyclopedia of Tolkien's realms and peoples. It already contains about four thousand entries, and we're constantly adding new entries and expanding existing ones. Inside the encyclopedia The Encyclopedia of Arda contains thousands of articles covering topics from J.R.R. You'll also find a selection of interactive tools, including a chronicle to help you explore Tolkien's fictional history, and calendar to translate dates and events, a lexicon of names, a glossary of old and rare words, and much more. Context and approach The content of the Encyclopedia is written in the same context as Tolkien himself used; he presented himself simply as a translator, rather than originator of the tales. About the name Arda Special thanks But the real Special Thanks, though, belong to the memory of J.R.R.

Why Permaculture Inspires and Motivates Me I want to tell you why permaculture inspires and motivates me and how I apply it in my own life, but before I do that I need to set the scene. Please bear with me. What do you feel when you read or hear that the Arctic icecap is melting faster than ever before or that clean water, a rapidly dwindling resource, is being globally privatised so that the most vulnerable people will have even less access to it? We are all exposed to these sorts of news reports every day, every time we turn on the TV or radio, or go online. Life is so precious, whether it is animal, human or entire ecosystems, so to see it inexorably damaged (and currently at such an extraordinary rate) makes me feel like a part of me is dying. Psychological insulation Do we switch off, tune out, ease ourselves out of focus in a self-constructed mythology? To deal with this, we need to develop our own sense of resilience and the capacity to find balance. Big stories are hunting for the right people to tell them

Tolkien: LOTR, Hobbit, Silmarillion, etc. Dime qué droga tomas y te diré quién eres Por Noemí Maza Antropología de las Drogas. “El 89% de los pueblos de la Tierra toma sustancias psicoactivas potentísimas, y en el 11% restante ahí estamos nosotros, los occidentales” “Nosotros tomamos drogas de esclavos: son drogas para trabajar mucho y pensar poco. Carajillo y cubata: perfecto combinado para esclavos”. “Para mí éste fue uno de los descubrimientos más duros de mi vida, descubrir de pronto que la mayor parte de políticos consumen drogas”. Foto Riyan Babu Joseph M. ¿Qué drogas has consumido? Pues… Mira, vamos a ver, como estimulantes, café, té, cocaína, teobromina (o sea el principio activo del chocolate, del cacao), hojas de coca en bruto, diversos tipos de metamfetaminas, de síntesis naturales también. ¿Cuál es tu posición en el debate en torno a la despenalización de las drogas? Los políticos las prohíben porque es un magnífico negocio que estén prohibidas. ¿Cómo surgió tu interés por los enteógenos y la etnopsicología? Estoy en contacto con un gran maestro de budismo zen.

Middle-earth & J.R.R. Tolkien Blog by Michael Martinez | Cassini spacecraft obtains best views of Saturn hexagon ( —NASA's Cassini spacecraft has obtained the highest-resolution movie yet of a unique six-sided jet stream, known as the hexagon, around Saturn's north pole. This is the first hexagon movie of its kind, using color filters, and the first to show a complete view of the top of Saturn down to about 70 degrees latitude. Spanning about 20,000 miles (30,000 kilometers) across, the hexagon is a wavy jet stream of 200-mile-per-hour winds (about 322 kilometers per hour) with a massive, rotating storm at the center. There is no weather feature exactly, consistently like this anywhere else in the solar system. "The hexagon is just a current of air, and weather features out there that share similarities to this are notoriously turbulent and unstable," said Andrew Ingersoll, a Cassini imaging team member at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Weather patterns on Earth are interrupted when they encounter friction from landforms or ice caps.
