I am surprised the real reason terrorists use almanacs has not been mentioned.
Many middle easterners still live thier lives by the stars. Many still plan specific things, like crop planting, marriage, business transactions, by
the heavens. It not a matter of it actually having power, but to many people, it bears messages and signifigance.
Muslims go by the lunar calendar, so they are more heavily dependant on astronomical positions of planets, moon phases, ect. This is the reason
terrorists are using these books, to plot thier next attack by the stars. Thats what they did with 9/11.
If you were to go out, during the night of 9/11, and look up, you would have seen the moon was but a crecent. The 4th phASE of the moon, and right at
its curve, a star, a bright star. Right next to the moon, a haunting echo of the star and crescent of the muslim flag. I do know that the wane, the
last phases of the moon before its a new moon, are the time for harvest, carrying out plans, ending things, and yes, death. The dying moon, ect.
Things like landmarks and visitation status are available at any tourist center. But not the positions of the heavens. Those come from almanacs.
Wonder why this obvious fact has not been mentioned?
