As an avid sky watcher, I look forward to getting up before dawn to see this event unfold.
No doom or gloom from me.
I have just always enjoyed watching the sky and, even more so during special events such as this one.
I read about it earlier and thought to make a thread but, as usual, someone beat me to it.
Good thread OP....thanks!

There is a lot of skepticism surrounding whether there is any true validity to this series of blood moons.. And even as a Christian, I acknowledge this is a wise position ( to an extent). It's so important to take everything with a grain of salt now, because the disinformation circulating around has reached epic proportions.
All that being said, what nobody can deny is what history has shown us. The OP covered some of the bizarre events surrounding the appearance of the Blood Moons and the connection to the Jewish people and Israel.
All throughout the bible we see that God has made it abundantly clear that he will preserve and protect Israel at all costs. He's also made it clear that he will reveal signs in the stars and the sky for all to see. It's getting to a point now where if we were to be honest, we ALL know there is a connection here deep down. It's at that point where one would deliberately have to be ignorant to not AS least call out to the Lord, and do honest research to try to see if this connection is valid.
Just remember, we can have all the head knowledge in the world and still stay blind if our heart is set on staying stubborn. Maybe so many of us are in denial that God is real and moving, because if we were to acknowledge that, it would have to force us to re-evaluate our lifestyles and repent.
Jesus is coming back soon, he has fulfilled every single prophecy to date. Let go of your pride and realize that we're nearing the end, whether this Blood Moon phenomena plays out dramatically or not is uncertain. Even Jesus himself said he would come back when nobody expected it, and only the Father knows the hour.
It's time we stop looking to man for all the answers but rather to the Lord
Bless you all

1. Why is alchemy bunk? Please explain
Because you can't turn lead into gold without atomic level manipulation. Also, alchemy is the ancestor to chemistry. All the things that turned out to be real in regards to alchemy became chemistry when we better understood why that worked.
2.Explain to me how the ancients know less. Not by listing off modern achievements but by comparing actual information from both sides. I did say that heliocentrism was discovered by the ancient long before it was rediscovered.
I'm not discounting what the ancients did know. I just said that they knew less about the universe than we do. The ancients didn't know about exo-planets or even the complete makeup of our solar system. The ancients didn't know about evolution despite knowing how to manipulate it with selective breeding. The ancients couldn't harness either AC or DC current. I can keep going on. Just because certain knowledge that was exceptional was discovered by the ancients doesn't mean they knew more than we did. Alexandria may have had tons of books we'll never be able to read, but there is no objective evidence to suggest that the library contained anything that scientists don't know today.
3. The electromagnetic field of the earth has incredible effects on people. The sun nourishes all life and can burn our skin from 93 million miles away. So radio waves from Saturn couldn't possibly have an effect? Just because the language was different back then doesn't make it less true. Its quite possibly the rhetoric was different and not the intrinsic message. In the beginning god spoke the word. Word=sound=vibration=waves=quantum perspective on nature of universe. I may be reaching on the last one but I think not. You don't always move forward when you move forward. Sometimes we run with the wrong ideas which puts us farther behind.
The reason the sun burns your skin from so far away is because of the radiation it produces called light. Saturn doesn't emit radiation. And the radiation that stars that aren't our sun emit is too deluded due to the inverse square law when it gets to us. The sun is also MANY times larger than Saturn.
4. I hold no allegiances to any idea. I'm just skeptical about our very unskeptical view of modern reality. Ironic isn't it? That a citizen of our society prides itself on skepticism only to be critical of the things it does not believe in...
Most people these days don't understand what it means to be skeptical of things. A skeptic doesn't just deny things because they may be proven wrong at a future date. A skeptic wants the most evidence for an idea as possible before signing off on it being real. Science only deals in evidence. All ancient beliefs are just assumptions of ancient man designed to explain our universe. There is no evidence to suggest any of them are right and being skeptical of science so that you can push one of these ancient beliefs as valid isn't being open minded nor properly skeptical.
