I don't even think my buddy mike_b sees a face when he looks in the mirror!
C'mon, man, even Richard Hoagland could see these faces
But if it's any help, people in my world believe I'm about to take the other step off the plank any minute, now, anyway, but where would we be now
if no one ever stopped and took notice of high-strangeness?
I'm deeply partial to the Christ. I don't go to church, so I'm not that kind of believer, and I love people who do go to
church/synagogue/mosque/etc, I'm not making a statement, it's just that religion is not my bag. In my rational mind, tho, I see the Universe as a
Matrix-like construct (if we consider the beginning of Genesis for a moment where God "created" the heavens and the earth, then it really would be a
matrix construct of some kind, wouldn't it? it's a creation), and I liken it to one of my favorite egames, Mortal Kombat, where there are characters
in a digital construct which interact with each other, crash into walls, get hit with 'material' objects, etc.
Using this analogy (and someone else might use another one, not trying to exhaust possibilities with this), if I wanted to interact with the
characters onscreen, me talking from my superior position to them (a living human vs. a limited digital creation), it seems to me that I would have to
make a brand new character who appears in their world, and interacts with them based on the existing rules of the game. This is how I see the Christ.
It ("it" referencing the position, not the person) is a 'character', if you will, who has entered 'the game' from higher dimension, having
interacted with the combative characters of the game, only not to fight, but to give healthful guidance (love one another, help one another, that type
"O, God, not another religious thread!!"
No, it's not. But there are coincidences which I think quantitatively exceed the fair but limited realm of "coincidence" appearing regarding all
the "last days" descriptions given in the OT/NT scriptures & the near-endless fuel for today's sites like ATS and others.
Now, I've said all that to say this: what if there really is substance to the bible, and all this out-there, inexplicable stuff we sift through is
the stuff it was talking about?
Yes, yes, YES, I know that the historicity of the bible is not sound, I know about Utnapishtim and the Anunaki, and I am strongly intrigued by these
and other accounts. Even so, I question within could God have used fiction to some degree to tell our very real future? If not, why not? And please
miss me with "that's ridiculous, it's all just religious control" because what the texts said to look for is in our daily headlines. What has me
confused as I try (almost desperately) to disqualify the bible as a serious source is the simple diamond-hard fact that it simply won't go away.
Consider: "In the last days" (Matthew 24)
-- there would be famine (always had it, always will, I know)
-- there would be plagues (how's our disease count, today?)
-- there would be earthquakes in odd places (a friend informed me that their driveway
was significantly cracked during a tremor in Amarillo, TX not long ago. Amarillo.
Seismic activity is up in TX (where I live), not a smoking gun, necessarily, but TX
is not an earthquake capitol like those places along the Ring of Fire)
-- there would be nation rising against nation (how about a new war today?)
-- there would be ethnic group rising against ethnic group (rare today, I know)
-- there would be roaring of the waves of the sea enough to cause heart failure
-- terror in the heavens (never been consciously abducted, but greys are pretty
unnerving, I hear)
If there are really spiritual dominions in high places as Paul discussed in
of the NT, would these forces ever
manifest as viewable?
