Philosophy, Religion & Society / Jim Crow Revival
« on: August 16, 2017, 06:06:42 PM »
Proposed laws in several U.S. states protect drivers who kill protesters. This move is strongest in areas like the American South where Black Lives Matter demonstrations have stopped traffic.

Police unions and allied politicians are the most open supporters of these proposed laws that would legally protect killing protesters. The legislation is being worded so the driver gets off unless it is proved the death was intentional.

Does Jim Crow still exist if this passes?

Philosophy, Religion & Society / NAACP & the American Ruling Class
« on: July 29, 2017, 07:29:13 PM »


In 1948, NAACP Compromises With White Racist American Establishment &
Accepts Anti-Communist Ideology to Survive.
Accordingly, they expel and persecute their own founder, the scholar and civil rights activist W.E.B. DuBois


Real News founder Paul Jay interviews Houston University Professor Gerald Horne, a prolific Marxist historian.

In the first of six 20-minute segments which assess phases of American history, Horne criticises the NAACP for compromising the civil rights movement by agreeing to become anti-communist - a modus vivendi made with america's repressive establishment to oppose communism in return for a measure of civil rights.

This is a major contributing reason for the relative success of the NAACP and the decline of the Communist Party USA during the Cold War.

In the black community, Horne explains, opposition to white racism is paramount. As long as one follows that principle, he has legroom in other areas. The white establishment successfully exploited this weakness of the NAACP. Martin Luther King got out of line by publicly defending communism through his support of the Vietnamese against American fascism, and he was dead within about a year.  By contrast, some NAACP leaders have been cowardly to speak against america's wars, and have deviated from the heritage of their founder, the outspoken W.E.B. DuBois who in fact joined the Communist Party USA shortly before he died.

As Horne alludes towards the end of this first segment, this compromise which mandated anti-communism on behalf of representatives of the lower classes was also made with labor union leaders which explains the deradicalization of unions like the CIO.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Ukraine's Successor State
« on: July 29, 2017, 03:24:11 PM »
Since Ukraine has a particularly ugly post-Soviet history even among East European governments, the Malorossiyan Federation composed of members from all over the Ukraine issued a decree in July 2017 endorsing the end of the Ukrainian state concomitant with the creation of a new government which is in accordance with the will of peoples throughout the land and a corresponding period of transition.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Lysenko versus Eugenics
« on: June 13, 2017, 03:33:35 PM »
T. Lysenko was a famous Soviet biologist and opponent of biological determinism which has a history of association with racism, the eugenics movement, and politically motivated pseudoscience.

Lysenko came under severe criticism during and since the 1960's, and I have come to suspect this criticism is rooted in anti-communist and racist politics rather than facts.

First, as Lysenko was most prominent during the Stalin era, the criticism against Lysenko is consistent with revisionism and non-Marxist trends characteristic of the degenerating Kruhschev-Brezhnev era.

Second, the basis usually cited for discrediting Lysenkoism is alleged ruinous effects of his ideas upon agriculture. That his policies had been used for decades and fell out of favor after Stalin suggests political motive. Secondly, Enver Hoxha's informative critique of the Kruhschev era assigns blame to Kruhschev himself for ruining much of agriculture that had worked beautifully when Stalin was in power and Lysenko's policies had full sway.

Third, I very recently picked up two books severely discredit modern genetics as eugenics in another form. I have not read these yet, but it will be interesting to see in what sectors their insight pulls the rug out from under modern genetics.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Democrats & Republicans
« on: June 05, 2017, 08:19:04 PM »
A Soviet writer using the pseudonym Ernst Henri wrote a perceptive analysis of German Nazism in 1934 entitled 'Hitler Over Europe.'

He outlined five social classes under Nazism.
1) the twelve or so capitalist families at the top, the most powerful and most hidden and to whom the top Nazis had to answer
2) the Nazi clique at the head of the government
3) the SS: this represented the upper class and upper middle class, the bourgeois
4) the SA: this represented the middle class
5) the lower class

It occurred to me that the SS and the SA are mirrors of the Republicans and the Democrats in the U.S.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Marxism & Flat Earth Science
« on: June 04, 2017, 10:38:53 AM »
I intend to show that Marxism, if used with discernment, can assist understanding science generally including flat earth science.

Marxist writers have often excelled at exposing falsehood and may be particularly helpful in exposing false science. By eliminating false notions and misunderstandings, the picture becomes far more clearer.  This often facilitates deeper understanding.

What Marxist writers talk about are often common knowledge to the poor and affected people concerned. Viewing heliocentrism and NASA as colonial science puts it in its proper context.

The development of the American propaganda network described by pro-Stalinist writers like Upton Sinclair is what spreads false news like space travel to the masses along with  other fabrications - all of which usually serve other purposes.

The Lounge / 8/21 August Solar Eclipse
« on: June 01, 2017, 09:07:54 PM »
Anyone planning on seeing the total solar eclipse on the 21st of August?

(or 8th of August on the pre-Renaissance Julian calendar)

Although a partial eclipse will be visible from most of the U.S. and Mexico and the Western parts of Europe and North Africa, I understand the roughly 60-mile wide shadow will swing across the U.S. from Oregon to South Carolina in about 90 minutes. The shadow will travel from west to east in the opposite direction of the sun and moon. I've read it starts out in the North Pacific very roughly halfway between Hawaii and Alaska at a point where the sun will actually rise eclipsed - a black sunrise. You'd likely have to charter a boat to see that.

I myself have a room reserved at Depoe Bay on the Oregon coast which is in the middle of where the shadow hits land.

Flat Earth General / Alaskan Resources
« on: June 01, 2017, 04:06:41 PM »
I'm spending the week with the family visiting Russian villages in the southern Kenai peninsula near Homer, but I'll be spending tonight (1st of June) and all day tomorrow in Anchorage.

Since Anchorage is the largest city in Alaska and a likely pool of informational resources, I wondered if perhaps anyone knew of museum exhibits, bookstores, or other information resources in town related to geography, astronomy, or the Arctic, et cetera.

I have not yet researched this aspect of the trip aside from planning to stop by Anchorage's Log Cabin Visitor's Centre and Information Bureau for guidance.

I can say I've perceived that a lot of the arctic travel stuff is based out of Fairbanks. I'm devoting tomorrow to information gathering for my own knowledge and possible future trips to the Arctic and viewing Aurora Borealis.

Flat Earth Information Repository / Solar Eclipse 8 (21) August 2017
« on: April 30, 2017, 11:51:16 AM »
Putting this out in case anyone wanted to observe a total eclipse of the sun as it's not an opportunity that happens everyday.

This will occur on a monday, and the shadow will evidently travel across the United States from west to east - in the opposite direction of the sun and moon (as the sun overtakes the moon).

The shadow will travel westward from the Oregon Pacific Coast headed east southeast over Salem, Oregon and Nashville, TN through South Carolina to the Atlantic Ocean.

I plan to observe the eclipse from Salem, Oregon and avoid the Pacific coast since clouds are highly possible west of the costal mountains.

Accomodations for this particular day located anywhere in the full shadow of the eclipse have been reserved months in advance. Many hotel rooms and campsites are now going for $600.

Flat Earth Information Repository / Comprehensive Geocentric Book
« on: January 05, 2015, 10:12:16 PM »
'Geocentricity' by Gerhardus Bouw has been published for the first time in many years in a much expanded edition.  This book is the most up to date and comprehensive book available from the (spherical) geocentric perspective.

"Geocentricty: Christianity in the Woodshed by Gerardus D. Bouw, PhD (Astronomy). The successor to Geocentricity and its predecessor, With Every Wind of Doctrine. This book is the most exhaustive and comprehensive book on the subject of geocentricity. The book presents the geocentric nature of Scripture. It includes complete coverage of Joshua's Long Day and Hezekiah's sign. The role, function, and history of the firmament is covered extensively. The sun's role in ruling the day is greatly extended in this book. Five appendixes are included in the book. One covers every scriptural reference to the geocentric creation. The last appendix derives the geocentric equations of motion that are commonly used in space travel; only this derivation is strictly geocentric. The book includes biographical sketches of most geocentrists from 1650 through 2013. Finally, the author traces the role that Copernicus' heliocentric model played in the demotion of man from being created in the image of God to an evolved accident created in the image of an ape in rebellion against the God who created man in his own image. 816 pages, hardbound."

Flat Earth Information Repository / Stairway to Heaven
« on: December 28, 2012, 04:41:55 PM »
A tower of babel or stairway to the moon which summarizes James Beal's understanding of the history of the US space program and the intended future use of space stations according to information he claims to have seen from his friend at UCLA in the early 1970's.

Quote from: JamesBeals
The US Army Air Force and the US Navy designed several experimental winged 'rocket' airplanes in the late 1940ís ... Later rocket planes became known as X rocket planes (X = experimental) - the most famous being the X-15. Werner von Braun was among the leading German-American scientists working on this project since the late 1940's.  From that time, von Braun developed the basis of deep space travel and the US space program which has not changed to this day!  About 1950 von Braun envisioned using experimental rocket planes as 'Space Shuttles' that ferried men and materials to build orbiting space stations far above the earth...

...Emphasis on the space program got sidetracked. The real US space program was the X-15 rocket which it would refine until it became a space shuttle that could take men and heavy loads into space, but funding for that project was put on the back burner as more funds were spent on ballistic missiles with cargos on top of them.

...The X-15 was followed by the X-16, X-20 and X-22 rocket planes, and the X-24, the last of the X-rockets.  This last of the experimental rocket planes was still a manned winged plane.  These tests were said to have been going on throughout the 1960ís and 1970ís.  The next step was the space shuttle which was the intended culmination of all the X-rocket planes and the US space effort. 

...In the late '50s and early '60s the US sent one Explorer after another trying to prevent the electronics from burning out in the van Allen radiation belts.  The Russians also sent probes.  Both countries made a combined total of 30 to 40 attemptsto pass these belts.  Historical text books state that Russia was first to break the van Allen radiation barrier with their probe.  However, the books I read never explained what processes and protection were finally fabricated that gave the crafts the protection they needed to pass through the radiation belts.  According to my friend Rob, no one ever got a probe through the radiation belts.  No Explorer probe, nor the Apollo crafts, nor any Pioneer, Mariner, Viking, Voyager, nor any other deep space craft ever penetrated the van Allen radiation belts.   

...The mission of the shuttle was to travel several thousand miles or further carrying cargo to build an orbiting space station at as high an altitude as possible.  The main purpose of the space station was to serve as a research lab for further investigation of the van Allen radiation belts and how to get past them.  Part of the purpose of the space station was to act as an orbiting launch pad and re-fueling station. 

Once the first space station was complete, space shuttles between Earth and the first station would continue to carry loads, but a new type of shuttle would be built which did not have to travel into the Earth's atmosphere and therefore had no wings.  This shuttle would launch from the first space station at several thousand miles elevation and travel to a much higher orbit.

The next level of shuttles would construct a second space station at a higher orbit.  Thus, the first ground level shuttles would be ferrying loads from Earth to the first station, and another shuttle would ferry loads to the next station.  The second space station would be located at the edge of the radiation belts with the purpose of finding holes in them or some other way through.  After that was done, another space station could be built further out at 50,000 miles, or on the other side of the radiation belts.  This space program that I saw was a plan to reach the Moon by building about seven space stations as a stairway to heaven - a tower of Babel that led to the moon.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Negativity
« on: November 08, 2012, 01:25:49 PM »
Darkness vanishes in the presence of light, especially with much light.  Knowledge makes unknowing disappear, especially with much knowledge.  Think not of this as deprivation, but rather in terms of transcendence, and then you will be able to perceive something which is truer than all truth, namely, that the knowledge of God escapes those who possess extant light and knowledge of being.  His transcendent darkness is concealed from all light and hidden from all knowledge.  One who has seen God and understood what he saw did not see Him, but rather one of His creatures that are existing and known.  He Himself is unknowable and non-existant.  He does exist above all being and is known beyond the mind. This positively complete unknowing IS knowledge of Him Who is above all knowledge and being.

Space Shuttles
http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php/topic,56042.0.html#.UJnH-IY4xGM

My purpose is to analyze Dr. Peter Beter's lecture on space shuttles posted in the Flat Earth Information Category.  My opinion in brief is Dr. Beter makes astute observations (whether originally his own or borrowed) alongside absurdities that should be rejected.

In my opinion, Beter's assertion about pre-recorded audios and videos of space shuttle astronauts broadcast as if they were live after the first two minutes is a legitimate claim.  Beter's description of these and other Space Shuttle operations such as the Hubble telescope being recorded at a facility in White Sands, New Mexico in support of mass deception is an excellent basis for further Space Shuttle video and audio analysis as well as research for other corroborating evidence

Philosophy, Religion & Society / United States Lost the Iraq War
« on: January 28, 2012, 12:40:38 PM »
A military victory in 2003 against a weak and crippled Iraqi military that had sustained 12 years of economic sanctions and aerial bombardments has been followed by a failure to combat the Iraqi militias and a complete american military withdrawal in 2011. 

The Iraqi victory over the US resembles the Algerian FLN's defeat of the French in which an initial French military victory was followed by an Algerian political victory that greatly aided by publicity of French war crimes and the war's intense unpopularity in France which came close to civil war. 

In this respect, Obama resembles Charles DeGaulle.  Charles DeGaulle withdrew France from Algeria, and Obama withdrew america from Iraq.  Both were centre-left politicians who hypocritically continued other colonial wars in spite of the anti-interventionist platform that got them elected. 

The Iraqi war also resembles the Vietnam war in that american control decreased in spite of its air superiority which proved inferior to poor man's weapons like improvised explosive devices. 

Perhaps american interventionists condemn terrorism so loudly because terrorism in the hand of an enemy that is ingenious and determined can find their achilles heel.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Voltaire was Fascist
« on: January 07, 2012, 03:57:57 PM »
Voltaire Against God, the Poor, the Exploited, the Colonized, and the Common Man

Voltaire Versus Jean Jacques Rousseau

Francois Arouet Marie Voltaire was an enemy of common men who spent his life in the company of aristocrats.  Both his correspondence and his life reflect this fact.  Voltaire's relationship with Jean Jacques Rousseau was short-lived, acrimonious, and non-existent after the 1750's.  Jean Jacques Rousseau was a genuine forerunner of political freedom lovers like Karl Marx and Frederick Douglass.  Rousseau was the great enemy of abusive european monarchs and a representative of lower classes.  Rousseau also wrote on many topics much more objectively, edifyingly and with less jaundice than Voltaire.  Rousseau's objectivity facilitated his discernment, and he was a staunch critic of both modern european science and the degenerate status of western art in his time.

Any claim of Voltaire to represent social liberty is transparent and contradicted by facts which demonstrate his thoughtlessness towards persons outside the scope of his self-contradictory war against Christianity and his self-centered sexual perversions.

If Rousseau is the forerunner of Karl Marx and communism, then Voltaire is the forerunner of Hitler and fascism.  Leading Nazi ideologues like Alfred Rosenberg were great admirers of Voltaire and adopted both his rejection of Christianity and his opposition to Rousseau.

Voltaire's Alliance With the Papacy

The great passion of Voltaire's life was an intense hatred of Christianity -  not advocating liberty or the cause of the weak.  Among many other evidences, the consistent attitude of his correspondence testifies to these facts. 

Savonarola was murdered for criticizing the papacy in the 1400's.  Voltaire, on the contrary, allied with the papacy in his attack on the Jesuits which was overall one of the most open minded institutions of the comparatively totalitarian eighteenth century.  Many facts upon close scrutiny evidence an agenda by Voltaire and his very closest friends which is contrary to the spirit of freedom. 

Voltaire's correspondence with Diderot, D'Alembert, and King Frederick II (the "great") of Prussia reveals that they allied with Pope Clement XIV to have the comparatively open minded Jesuits outlawed which actually happened in 1767 and in the 1770's in the Spanish and French empires (- 'The Memoirs of Augustin Barruel').  However, of all legal institutions in the eighteenth century,  the Jesuits by far most identified with and represented the interests of both the colonized subjects and lower classes.   Voltaire's circle did not conspire against pro-colonial medievalist orders like the Dominicans which were the enemies of both the Jesuits and native peoples' interests. 

Many Jesuits in the twentieth century and beyond continue to be one of the elements within catholicism closest to the spirit of liberation theology, Marxism, and other comparable movements which embrace political and social liberty.

Voltaire's Alliance With King Frederick II of Prussia

Voltaire was a life long friend and employee of the tyrannical King Frederick of Prussia corresonding with him for over 50 years.  Voltaire received much of the funding for his atheist literature from Frederick who also initiated the expansion of Prussian power - the state policy of pan-Germanism which culminated with Nazism within a hundred years.  Frederick was an ardent opponent of the american revolution and a supporter of his cousin King George III of England.  Both the protestant Lutheran church and the atheist propaganda which Frederick collaborated in with Voltaire were funded by the Prussian state.  George III of England and Frederick of Prussia were the kind of men whom Rousseau consistently opposed. 

Voltaire's Alliance With Catherine II of Russia

Voltaire was a partisan of Russian colonialism and Russian tsars - not their victims. 

Votaire advised and supported Russian imperial conquest in his extensive correspondence with Catherine II.  He was Catherine's master and teacher in both her domestic and colonial policy.  Catherine of Russia was a tyrannical dictator who was hated by both common Russians and the many nations which her army occupied and indignified.  Catherine was an ally of western aristocratic society of which Voltaire was also, and she was a destroyer of her own people's liberty and Christian traditions.  The Russian empire is basically the same with Hitler, and Voltaire was all for it.

Volataire's Perversion and Sabotage of Revolution

Revolution for a worthy cause is honorable, and knowing its cause involves understanding those who would sabotage a revolution and its memory. 
Voltaire's influence is barnacle on the bow of freedom.
