Here Is The News: Purile & Useless


It’s gone too far.

I can’t stand it any more, and instead of letting it raise my blood pressure I’m going to have a rant.

I watch the TV News every morning before breakfast, usually BBC News and Sky News (although the topics covered on both are identical, even to the timing, so there’s no real difference between these two) and when after about two minutes I’m screaming at the screen, I have to go to Al Jazeera to find out what’s really going on in the world. [Sad, because Al Jazeera is pro-Muslim but it still covers world events in a more balanced way than the Beeb.]

In vain do I seek for information about the war in Syria, the economy in America, terrorism in Mali (or whatever). Continue reading

Technology Close to Creating Hell on Earth


vr-headsetIf the title of this post alarms you, then I’m glad, because many people will shrug their shoulders and pass on.

However, I remember back in the early 90’s when Virtual Reality was first being touted as an exciting futuristic technology, I had an inkling of where things might go, even then.

Even back then, it was suggested that people could eventually don a VR headset and enter into an alternative 3D universe where their interaction with people and objects could be as near to reality as possible.

2012 London Olympics: what did they hide from us?


Raising a fist in the face of God!

I’ve hesitated to write about what I perceived in the London Olympics opening and closing ceremonies. I didn’t want to join a chorus of nit-picking just for the sake of it, feeling there’s nothing to be gained from pointing out that people in the world who are riddled with mistaken spiritual attitudes are inevitably going to create something contrary to biblical truth as a matter of course.

While identifying significant pagan and mythological themes in the ceremonies (as well as subliminal socialist propaganda) I maintained my attitude throughout the Games until I chanced to watch the closing ceremony.

Coming your way tonight: the new blood libel


Atheism dressed up as “theology”: the God haters are clamouring to applaud tonight’s ripping up of biblical truth in the form of the BBC’s new series presented by the atheist senior lecturer at the University of Exeter, Francesca Stavrakopoulou.

The first episode (Tuesday 15th from 9-10 on BBC2) is all about rubbishing David and his kingdom. Doubtless the same kind of sensationalised “archeology” and “new evidence” that we are used to seeing in such documentaries will support the conclusion she’s already reached, that the God of the bible only exists in the blinded eyes of those who worship him.

But who is this woman? One supporter praises her “excellent” work on “cultic child sacrifice to Yahweh” which sounds to me startlingly close to the age-old blood libel.  But maybe the world is ready for another heavy dose of anti-semitic lies to spark off the next round of pogroms? And as for the Christians, they are about to appear as foolish numbskulls who need pagans and atheists to correct their theological understanding.

Stavrakopoulou first appeared on television last year in Channel 4’s “The Bible: A History”, saying that Moses did not exist. (I remember trying to watch this series and recall how conceited she sounded.)

“The Bible’s Buried Secrets”, which begins tonight, is her first prime time series. Her published books include include “Baal and Asherah: Image, Sex, Power, and the Other” and “King Manasseh and Child Sacrifice: Biblical Distortions of Historical Realities”.

Her book “Blood ritual in the Hebrew Bible” again raises the spectre of the Blood Libel. Will it become the new “Protocols of Zion”?

She is “Secretary of the Society for Old Testament Study and a member of the European Association of Biblical Studies and the Society of Biblical Literature” so is clearly a voice of influence for those who need to denounce all that is holy and true.  In one short biography it is revealed it took her to the age of eleven to realise that Jesus was Jewish.  One wonders what would have happened if she’d actually paid attention at school like the rest of us.

Ms Stavrakopoulou’s big drum which she is bound to beat throughout this TV series is pluralism. That is, the God of the bible is about to be presented as simply one of a host of cultic gods worshipped in ancient Judea. Again, according to some “the fact that Yahweh once shared a bed with Mrs Yahweh (“Asherah”) is widely accepted by mainstream scholars as a part of orthodox religious belief”. Perhaps it is amongst the “religious” but not for those who know God. Let us pray the outcry will be loud and long against this destructive heresy!

Titus 1:15-16 – To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.

This Country is Going Digital (Postal?)


So, it’s happening. The great digital switchover from analogue TV to digital is being rolled out across the country as from now. It means anybody left with the old style five channels received via a roof aerial will be looking at a blank screen soon… unless that is, they take up the BBC offer (advert) that dropped through my letterbox this morning.

For the “standard option” which involves plonking a set-top box on your TV they will charge you £40. Other options range from £56 for a digi box and satellite dish (your only option if you have an old type aerial) to £874 for a TV and freesat LCD screen.

Once again the Beeb has found a way to advertise itself, reach a whole new customer base for its left-wing (Government sponsored) propaganda and sell mounds of equipment into the bargain.

It’s not enough that the BBC are milking £145.50 a year out of everyone in the country (those who own a colour TV, but how many do not?) for a license to own a TV in the first place. And it doesn’t stop there. Each room in a care home or similar establishment is charged £7.50 a year in the “concessionary” scheme, so if you have a Care Home with 25 rooms that’s £187.50 a year you have to find just to pay the BBC for being there.

More – if you are unfortunate enough to be running a hotel or company or boarding houses (etc) each with a TV, you will be charged a license for each one of them. So ten different locations = £1,455 a year to be found for the immense privilege of watching infantile comedy, gross reality shows, and politically-correct garbage.

Oh, but at least there are no adverts you cry! Yup, no adverts – well that is, only adverts for yet more BBC entertainment, and their website, and their services and — you get the picture….

But at the end of this month you may NOT “get the picture” at all, when it all goes digital. If you happen to be poor or elderly or disadvantaged and your only relaxation was a few hours watching the box, you can forget it. Find the money for a new TV or at least a set-top box or you’ll get nothing for your money from now on.

You’d think the billions of license money the BBC rake in (not to speak of their commercial activities) would provide enough for a free set-top box for those who don’t own a digital-ready TV. But no.

And reading their leaflet I grew ever more incensed at the level of information they have already gleaned on each and every person they contacted. It boldly states that they have already contacted “a number of public bodies including local authorities, Veterans Agency, and the DWP” to see if you are on benefits or disabled and they have contacted the TV Licensing Agency to see if you have a license.

If you reply to their form (which they urge you to do even if you don’t want them to call you) you will have to give even more personal information like your phone number, disabilities – including “depression” – whether you own your property and what type of property it is.

Am I the only one a tad upset about this?

Parents Be Warned: Digital “drug” Craze


I-Dosing: How teenagers are getting ‘digitally high’ from music they download from internet (By Daniel Bates on 21st July 2010)

They put on their headphones, drape a hood over their head and drift off into the world of ‘digital highs’. Videos posted on YouTube show a young girl freaking out and leaping up in fear, a teenager shaking violently and a young boy in extreme distress.


This is the world of ‘i-Dosing’, the new craze sweeping the internet in which teenagers used so-called ‘digital drugs’ to change their brains in the same way as real-life narcotics.

They believe the repetitive drone-like music will give them a ‘high’ that takes them out of reality, only legally available and downloadable on the Internet. The craze has so far been popular among teenagers in the U.S. but given how easily available the videos are, it is just a matter of time before it catches on in Britain. Those who come up with the ‘doses’ claim different tracks mimic different sensations you can feel by taking drugs such as Ecstasy or smoking cannabis. The reactions have been partially sceptical but some songs have become wildly popular, receiving nearly half a million hits on YouTube.

But there has been such alarm in the U.S. that the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs has issued a warning to children not to do it. ‘If you want to reach these kids, save these kids and keep these kids safe, parents have to be aware. They’ve got to take action.’ He added that another concern is that many of these I-dosing sites lure visitors to actual drug and drug paraphernalia sites.

I-Dosing tracks have imposing names such as ‘Gates of Hades’ or ‘Hand of God’ which are ten minutes long – some sound like a ship’s horn being repeated again and again whilst others are more abrasive and resemble cheap synthesizers being played very fast.

Music as a Tool of Manipulation


“There is nothing new under the sun” said Solomon around 920 years before Christ was born. He was right then and he’s right now. There is supposedly a “new” sound, a harmonic vibration of certain tones that are supposed to alter human perception and even our DNA. Some are linking it to an ancient chant used in the Catholic church which supposedly the monks used to bring down the presence of God and transform behaviour and mood.

One ancient chant to St John the Baptist was arranged in an early form of what we know as the musical scale of Do-Ray-Me (etc).  I imagine this was done to teach choristers the scales, since there was no written notation in those days. (Go to this page to find out about it).

Initially written by Paolo Diacono as a hymn to Saint John the Baptist (circa 720 – 799), the Latin words “Ut queant laxis, Resonare fibris, Mira gestorum, Famuli tuorum, Solve polluti, Labii reatum,” translate to:

UT — Ut queant laxis = So that your servants may

RE —    resonare fibris, = with loosened voices

MI —  Mira gestorum = resound the wonders

FA —    famuli tuorum = of your deeds

SO —  Solve polluti = clean the guilt from

LA —    labii reatum = our stained lips Sancte Iohannes. = O Saint John.

However, now the New Age has “rediscovered” the hymn and is claiming that each ascending note is a resonance that has meaning, in particular the “miracle” note of MI which has a harmonic frequency of 528. You can buy CDs of each frequency that are supposed to heal your body and release spiritual energy as you listen and chant them. I have no doubt this will also be linked to the rainbow colour spectrum and other pseudo-scientific claptrap so as to give it special spiritual meaning.

But will modern-day deluded Christians buy into the same nonsense? I think so.

Here are 22 quotes [in an article written in the mid 1990’s] taken directly from Christian and other literature, where in their own words they discuss the power and use of music to influence people. They are not only AWARE of the power of music but intend to employ its spiritual power to enslave listeners to their agenda.

(Ecclesiastes 1:9-11) What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.
