According to some researchers, in Illuminati lore, the Spring Equinox is considered a Minor Sabbath but still requires human sacrifice. March 21-22 is dedicated Goddess Ostara (Ishtar, also spelled, “Eostre”), for whom “Easter” is named. March 21 is one of the Illuminati’s Human Sacrifice Night. Ishtar was the Babylonian goddess of fertility, love and war. Her name derives from the words for “Dawn”.
Is it a coincidence that the name of the military operation in Libya is “Operation Odyssey Dawn”? Are we looking at another mega-ritual?

But I have seen no evidence that freemasons are using this for evil. Our country was founded by freemasons so it seem illogical to suggest they are the ones trying to implement this fascist evil empire.

I do not think that is a logical statement or certainly does not consider over 200 years of history to reflect upon and research to find out if its true.

Thursday the 22nd is also the New Moon. A nice dark night...
And of course its 322, for all you Skull and Bones aficionados.
edit on 3/19/2012 by this_is_who_we_are because: 322
The new moon occurs when the sun and moon are in conjunction, occupying the same part of the sky from the viewpoint of earth. During this time the moon doesn't reflect the light of the sun, and so cannot be seen (except during a solar eclipse). The moon's un-illuminated side is facing the earth.
The new moon phase is the time of new beginnings - like the Maiden form of the Goddess and the season of Spring. The appearance of the new crescent moon was celebrated as a return of the moon from the dead.
This is a time of growing energy, newness, rejuvenation, growth, renewal and hope. It is a good point to make changes in your life, such as ending bad habits or relationships.
Spring Equinox Spring Equinox. Ostara/Lady Day/Alban Eilir, on the spring equinoxOstara, according to Jakob Grimm in his Deutsche Mythologie, is the old High German name for the Easter festival. It is a plural Grimm states that this is because the old festival lasted several days. A rough translation would be 'The Easters'.Grimm also proposes that Ostara might have been the name for a Goddess, though he provides no direct evidence for this. Grimm may have based his goddess on the Anglo-Saxon goddess Eostre, as described by the Venerable Bede, who was also said to have a festival lasting several days. Bede indicated that this name was used in English when the Paschal holiday was introduced. This name was then converted to Easter, or Ostern in German. Tue Mar 20 5:14 GMT 2012
High Feast of Ostara, summer finding. March/Lenting 20 High Feast of Ostara (Sacred to Ostara Freya Frigga)
Quinquatrus was celebrated for only one day, but Ovid says that it was celebrated for five days, hence the name: on the first day no blood was shed, but that on the last four there were contests of gladiators. The first day was the festival proper, and that the following four were an expansion made perhaps in the time of Caesar to gratify the people. The ancient Roman religious calendars assign only one day to the festival.
Ovid says that this festival was celebrated in commemoration of the birthday of Minerva; but according to Festus it was sacred to Minerva because her temple on the Aventine was consecrated on that day. On the fifth day of the festival, according to Ovid, the trumpets used in sacred rites were purified

Are you people smoking crack? Are you so paranoid, that you don't give a flying f**k about what's ACTUALLY going on in Libya? Gaddafi went nuts with power, his people wanted equal rights, he said no way and started to blow their heads off, then the people were like f**k this guy and some started fighting back, especially when food,water and gas were cut off completely.
Then he started using the military in full force to kill his own people, shelling cities, killing men women and children. But you people of abovetopsecret would do nothing? Because your smoking crack and worshipping some roman god? Are you really that supertious that you would let those people die because you think it's all a grand conspiracy, you hear voices to? Let me guess you think it's god or some alien, let me give you a hint.
YOUR FRIGGEN NUTS!!!
Gods have no place in the real world, they are fictional characters, they aren't real. No matter how many times you tell yourself they are, they will never be real, and to say our governments believe in such a retarded idea, really? I mean no offense when I say this, only as a fellow ats member, get some help. You only know what your brain is telling you.
There is no magical meaning behind this situation, the moon orbits the earth. No magic. The united nations is trying to stop a genocidal manic from slaughtering an entire race of people. Trust me Gaddafi is more messed up then you'll ever be, but this is what happens when someone with major psychological disorders has tons of power and no one to question him. They become mad dogs!
