Articles in the mainstream press on Tanis yielded a few field-photos and I was quite intrigued by some of them. The particular “Event Deposit” under study (#1, hot pink, in “Fig. 1” above) is supposed to have been deposited 66 MILLION years ago. In the field photos the pale grey layer looks like barely compressed dirt to me. I wondered how in the world it could have “lasted”/resisted erosion for 1 million years, much less 66 million? Below is a terrific picture of the main researcher and one of his assistants from USA Today’s coverage:
When you’re a “former geologist” and you start thinking about big erosion-events there is one that immediately floods into your mind. 😉 Curiosity now had me wondering how long Actual Geologists had estimated the mile-deep Grand Canyon took to form…and the History Channel sez…a paltry 5-to-6 million years.
So, tell me again how that crumbly grey material literally stood the Test of Time – on a slope – for not 5-6 million years, or 10, or 20, but for
66 million years.
How I heard about that Wyoming find
One of my absolute favorite Christian ministries is Living Waters, out in California. I like to support them by buying their downloads, rather than waiting for their longer videos for free on YouTube. Here is a link to the one in question. (It’s free starting November 1st.)
What did Jesus do when it came to Roman oppressors, Pharisaical oppressors, and Sword-Control? Do you think, in a forgotten unrecorded aside, He actually told those disciples to check with the local ruling bureaucrats on the Roman Sword Regulations for Non-Citizens before buying their swords? Surely He would have even advised them to, quick like dutifully meek sheep, register them after the sale and in the future to joyfully turn them in to those very same oppressors. Surely.
Or how ’bout even before telling them to arm themselves mightn’t He have surreptitiously asked around…just to make sure none of them had anything questionable – say, like red-flags – on their “permanent (government) records?”
But, but, but…wouldn’t He have done so if super-worser even more-deadly firearms had been the Personal-Protection weapon of choice back then?
Um-m-m…I’m still believing that’d be a big fat, “No.”
Sometimes space-aliens really are out to get you, so don’t judge a space-rock by its stony exterior. The matrix might be hiding something truly mind-boggling which you (and your brain) should steer clear of. Um-m-m…NOW!
Is there a sci-fi fairytale genre? Well, there needs to be. This one will be about 9500 words and posits the actual origins of the Religion-of-Peace® (HT to Richard Dawkins). As you might imagine, I’m struggling on the final edits. (Also working to tie it into – as backstory – one of the passengers on the fictional Stratos A-29 flight in the FREE! short story called No Respect.)
I should have it up here over the weekend. It’s HERE!
p.s. If you drool over new fonts as much as I do (you poor thing), the two used on this cover (and likely on others of mine) are from the awesome FREE! font site, fontsquirrel. (Bahia & DayPosterBlack)
Tell me again why Fed-gov calls September 11th “Patriot Day?”
The 19th of April (1775) should rightfully carry that badge of courage, but Fed-gov despises individuals standing up to Tyrants like those New England colonists did way back then. That date in April has a much more important Propaganda Mission now. It’s much more useful as a red-hot illustration of the might and mayhem that the FBI/ATF/etc. can rain down on little ol’ Joe-Sixpack or David-Koresh.
“Pearl Harbor Day” (the 7th of December) should be “Patriot Day,” too
I’m betting “World Trade Center Day” was scrapped to take the attention off the (civilian) object of actual attack and the countless (civilian) victims. Have you considered the weirdness of so many things that day? Let merely the demolition-precise “collapse” of so-called Building 7 (untouched by planes or much debris) swirl in your head.
The powers-that-be can’t have Joe’s surviving sister, Suzy-Sixpack, give even a passing thought on that matter, or, or…well, she might look further.
Don’t lose your Faith
Too much thinking might cause Suzy to doubt. After doubt could come loss of Faith…and faith in her supreme leaders and their big budget Military Industrial Complex, is crucial. In a nation this large and mobile and, dare I say it, diverse, Faith in them and what they say is the most important cog in their Control-machine. They must protect her and her kind from too much Thinking.
So don’t ever wonder
What ever you do on the 11th of September, or on the 10th, 9th, or on any of the preceding or following 364 days of the year…
don’t wonder, don’t ponder, don’t ruminate on how the mighty U.S. Military Industrial Complex was completely impotent and unable to stop or at lease divert sub-sonic commercial aircraft, yet can keep you safe from any pesky “incoming!” supersonic boom-booms from the NORKS, CHICOMMS, RUSSKIES, IRAN-iacs (or other MUSLOIDS).
One man’s Freedom-fighter is another’s Evil-Christian-colonizer…these two researchers are very accesible (Robert Spencer and J. Stephen Roberts) if you’d like to get a more accurate history of the lead-up-to and prosecution-of The Crusades.
Here, in a nutshell, is why Islam must be opposed.
One man’s Faith is another’s Folly…except for Islam, which is the slow suicide-of-The-West cut by cut by 33,306 cuts (since 9-11 alone) and which will be our utter and forever extinction, unless enough of us wake up.
