Another Theory About the Norway Spiral

A mysterious spiral appeared in the skies over Norway in December 2009, raising all sorts of speculation. Eventually, Russia declared that it was a failed rocket test, but most observers reject that explanation.

The images appear more like computer graphics than a real atmospheric phenomenon, but that spiral was seen by thousands of people.

Weekly World News posted some of the videos

Researcher and journalist Richard C. Hoagland has presented a theory involved the nearby EISCAT Ramfjordmoen facility, the Norwegian version of Alaska's HAARP.

These facilities are capable of beaming microwave energy into the atmosphere, leading to speculation that these facilities have caused unusual weather, including Hurricane Katrina, and perhaps even earthquakes, when the same microwave energy is beamed into the ground.

Big Freeze

Another reason to doubt the global warming hype:

Big freeze plunged Europe into ice age in months

In the film, ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ the world enters the icy grip of a new glacial period within the space of just a few weeks. Now new research shows that this scenario may not be so far from the truth after all.

William Patterson, from the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, and his colleagues have shown that switching off the North Atlantic circulation can force the Northern hemisphere into a mini ‘ice age’ in a matter of months. Previous work has indicated that this process would take tens of years.

Around 12,800 years ago the northern hemisphere was hit by a mini ice-age, known by scientists as the Younger Dryas, and nicknamed the ‘Big Freeze’, which lasted around 1300 years. Geological evidence shows that the Big Freeze was brought about by a sudden influx of freshwater, when the glacial Lake Agassiz in North America burst its banks and poured into the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. This vast pulse, a greater volume than all of North America’s Great Lakes combined, diluted the North Atlantic conveyor belt and brought it to a halt.

2012 and Beyond

Coming soon, my first nonfiction book (not counting my memoir), 2012 and Beyond: Ancient Secrets and Mysteries.

Excerpt from the Introduction:

“Canst thou by searching find out God? Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?” – Job 11:7

In a dark dungeon, Dr. Faustus utters magical words in some ancient tongue, which he reads from an ancient manuscript. Having turned away from his faith and given up his position as a Christian priest, he has put away the Bible and turned the pages of magical tomes. The words have their effect, and the Devil – Mephistopheles – appears, offering Faust a deal that he cannot refuse. For twenty years he enjoys all sorts of luxuries and debaucheries, while demons serve his every whim. Then he must pay the price upon which he agreed when he signed the contract with the Devil in his own blood. Fearing this end, Faust hides in his basement, but the demons find him there and tear his body to shreds, and then they drag his soul down to Hell. That is Christopher Marlowe’s version of the Faust story. Goethe, finding that ending unsatisfying, gets Faust off the hook on a technicality.

In ancient Egypt, the young Greek wise man Solon lay in the stone coffin in the King’s Chamber inside the Great Pyramid and saw visions of the Great Flood. His grandson Plato would write down what Solon told him about Atlantis in two of his dialogs, the Timaeus and the Critias. On a moonless night in the 1300s, a group of men sat in a circle around a small camp fire in the midst of a forest in southern France. One of the men opened a black cloth sack to reveal the severed head of their martyred leader. Their religious order of knights was on the run, persecuted by their own church and their own king. On a July afternoon in 1858, a young woman dug in the dirt near a cave in Lourdes, France, seeking the water of the spring which the apparition of a lady had ordered her to drink – the Catholic Church finally declared Bernadette a saint in 1933.

In France in the early 1500s, a physician name Michele de Notre Dame (Nostradamus) peered into a bowl of water and saw visions of the future. He predicted that the world would end in the year 3797. Sorry, but he did not foresee anything special for the year 2012. However, many ancient cultures did predict the end of the world for 2012.

A word of warning before you delve into the depths of ancient mysteries: Never attribute great wisdom to people who worshiped cows and other creatures, rather than the Creator. Never open doors that might let in something that could harm you. Just say no to the Ouija board, whose name means “Yes yes”; if you try it, you will open the door to some serious mischief that can cause you great harm. Do not attempt to summon demons to serve your ends; you will end up serving theirs. Do not aspire to great power, as it will take away your personal power over your own life.

Hole found on the Moon

No, they are not saying that the Moon is hollow -- not yet, at least.

But it does have a very big hole that might lead to underground tunnels.

Finding a hole in a rille could suggest that an intact tube lies beneath. So a group led by Junichi Haruyama of the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency searched for these "skylights" in images taken by Japan's Kaguya spacecraft, which orbited the moon for almost two years before ending its mission in June.

The team found the first candidate skylight in a volcanic area on the moon's near side called Marius Hills. "This is the first time that anybody's actually identified a skylight in a possible lava tube" on the moon, van der Bogert, who helped analyse the feature, told New Scientist.

The hole measures 65 metres across, and based on images taken at a variety of sun angles, the the hole is thought to extend down at least 80 metres. It sits in the middle of a rille, suggesting the hole leads into a lava tube as wide as 370 metres across.
