The Illuminati – Some Thoughts On This Secret Society



The Great “Illuminati” Seal Some thoughts on the Illuminati… Well as far as a secret society goes the Illuminati haven’t done a very good job at remaining secret in recent years have they? As far as history is concerned I think it is true to say that the Illuminati were a secret society, said to have formed in the late 18th Century in Bavaria – well if we are trying to be correct a date of 1776 has been proposed. It is difficult to piece together any meaningful history of this ‘society’ as the whole subject has become tainted with poorly referenced conspiracy paranoia, pseudo-historical analyses and the odd fraud (hoax) or two. Starting with the choice of name – Illuminati – it seems that the society professed to be in line with some kind of information or approach that made its members ‘the enlightened’. It is likely that they had a republican political agenda which included the abolition of monarchies. It is further suggested...

The World Didn’t End on Schedule



The world didn’t end on Friday, Dec. 21, 2012 like the Mayan calendar indicated. I wasn’t surprised, were you? For the weeks preceding the Mayan doomsday date the National Aeronautic and Space Administration calmed fears among those who thought a bunch of Mayans a few millennia ago could predict the end of the world. I’m thinking they didn’t predict anything. I’m thinking they got tired of chopping calendars out of stone and went home for supper. I mean, how many calendars into the future do you really need? It would be like printing out on our laser printer calendars for the next 4 million years – only printing them with a computer would be a heck of a lot easier than chopping them out of stone with little birds and leaves and snakes and stuff like that. The Mayan Calendar is a little confusing to me. I’ve seen pictures of it and it looks like a wheel with some strange dude sitting in the middle surrounded by little icons towards the outside of...

Against the Law to Grow Your Own Food?



Gardens of Crime: Does The Government Want To Punish Self-Sufficiency? Vegetable gardens are something I always remember my grandparents having while I was growing up. Nothing tasted better than the tomatoes and bell peppers that were eaten fresh just moments after they were picked. Still warm from the sun, with all the flavor that nature intended. It is certainly much healthier than the stuff bought in the grocery store! And if you had told me then that there would be any cause for concern or legal ramifications for growing food on property, I would have said to go back to reading science fiction novels. However, some believe that the current laws in place regarding food production are leading this country into the hands of complete government control. Some have been fined and even jailed for refusing to move their gardens in their own yards! Home Grown Tomatoes What on earth? This can’t be happening, this is America! However, while some of the hype is just that… hype…...

Driving While Talking on a Cell Phone is Stupid



Driving a Vehicle? Stay Off That Phone! I was leaving the grocery store and nearly wrecked as I had to slam on the breaks to avoid hitting a car that pulled out directly in front on me. I was looking right at the car and the driver did not look in either direction, she never even glanced at all! What was she doing? She was talking on her cell phone! She came out of that parking lot without looking or even being aware that there was anyone else in the world besides her. I drove on and less than a half a mile on farther down the road another driver, this time a man, made a right hand turn from a red light without stopping. He pulled out in front of us and if the left lane hadn’t been clear we would have had a collision. What was he doing? You may have already guessed that he was talking on a cell phone! A little while later, maybe another mile and a half into our drive, a lady suddenly changed lanes almost right on top of us. I had to hit the brakes and swerve a little over into the...

Illuminati: Masonic Organization



Among the Masonic organizations the Illuminati occupy a top position. The fact that right after it had been created it was declared to be outside the law projected into the public mind that they are a group of plotters ready to enslave the world to satisfy their thirst of power. The Masonic organization of Illuminati appeared on the 1st of May 1776 at Ingolstadt in Superior Bavaria. It’s initial name was The Bavarian Illuminati. At its secret structure lies university teacher of canonical law named Adam Weishaupt who, apparently got his inspiration from the freemasonry model. The Latin word Illuminati is directly linked with the Illuminated Age of which Bavaria was no stranger. Masonic Symbols The All Seeing Eye In 1784 the Bavarian authorities forbid any secret organizations amongst which were the Illuminati. The restriction order was not directly aimed at the Illuminati, they were just collateral damage in the war that absolutist regimes had against revolutionary movements. Yet,...

Will Solar Storms be a Threat to Life?



Solar Storms are coming. Emergency Survival knowledge, and Preparedness are key. You may be asking questions like, “Exactly what is a solar storm, and how can it affect me and my family?” “What emergency survival knowledge should I know about?” “If preparedness is the key, then what should I do?” In this four part document we are going to answer these questions and provide insight into the larger picture. We will give you the information that the media, and government are holding back. So what is a solar storm? Well solar as you might have guessed refers to an event involving our sun. A storm is defined as a violent disturbance of the atmosphere. But instead of the disturbance occurring in the form of thunder, lightening, or precipitation, it is in the form of charged particles that are ejected from the sun. These charged particles travel in large clouds that can carry up to ten billion tons of plasma. These clouds are also called Coronal Mass Ejections...

Should Plastic Bags Be Banned?



Our little town juts out into a very big lake. And everyday, I take a three-mile walk, along the lake, winding through wood and field. I love the flora and fauna along the trail, all the critters from buzzards to bobcats (Texas) and the breathtaking seasonal changes. But I hate the plastic bags snagged in the brush and branches. Nevertheless, the cussed things are sure handy for toting groceries and stuff. What to do? Bag bans seem to be gaining momentum. State Delegate Alfred C. Carr (D-District 18), for example, is fixin’ to introduce a bill (The Chesapeake Bay Restoration Consumer Retail Choice Act) that would slap a nickel tax on new plastic and paper bags used by Maryland shoppers. Last September, California senators balked at an Assembly-approved bill that would have made the state the first in the nation to ban all plastic shopping bags. AB 1998 would have outlawed single-use plastic bags in grocery stores and pharmacies, starting next year and in liquor and convenience stores...

Earth Undergoing a Period of Mass Extinction?



Did you know our planet is undergoing one of the largest mass extinctions in the past 4 billion years? “So what,” you say. “It does not really affect me. Sure I feel sorry for the polar bears, elephants and tigers but their time is coming to a close. We all have to deal with our own and our own is humanity.” This kind of human attitude suggests the question, “How many species can our planet afford to lose before we human are placed on the same extinction list?” Certainly at some point in this evolution of the species humanity will not be forgotten. The only questions are when and how our species will have to really struggle for survival? The current extinction numbers are truly fantastic to consider-in fact the recent loss of species from just pollution and deforestation, within the past century, are enough to boggle your mind. Also our planet’s reefs are being devastated so fast the abundance of marine life, which uses coral reefs as a home, will...
