Well that was an interesting read, I can't say I believe you but I will say I hope you are wrong.
-2023: The resistance movement attempts to express themselves, and expose the deviousness of the NOW. The members of the movement are judged "anti-scientific" by the media, are mocked at, are judged mentally ill, and are then locked inside psychiatrical correction institutes.
-2018: The NOW is aware of the small localized currencies people are creating. This slightly impairs the control the NOW has. Geneva discreetly injects unprecedented amount of money, which collapses all worldwide economies. All nations are bring to their knees. Geneva comes in with a permanent solution: the Unero. This worldwide new currency, entirely controlled by Geneva, solves many economical problems. Thus, all other independent currencies are banished by law. People try to escape the control but they are unsuccessful and end up in detention facilities.
-2014: Some group of people throughout the world, through Internet, unite against the NOW. The path to freedom - coordinated worldwide revolution - seems clear.
-2015: The NOW reacts by injecting funds into neurology science. Geneva publishes a "scientific" paper in which they claim that Internet is the cause for mental illness throughout the world, and that Internet must be treated as a dangerous addiction and as an international security threat. Access to Internet becomes interpreted as a psychological disturbance, and Internet is banned worldwide.

Considering their history, the Shadow might very well do exactly what you predicted.
You have heard that it was said, "Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth." But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
You have heard that it was said, "Love your neighbor and hate your enemy." But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love only those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?
Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Trust him. I mean, what else are you going to do? Only God has enough power to stop Satan and those Satan has made powerful (the Shadow forces, both human and demonic). Their time will come, and nothing we do will make it come faster. We can't hurry God's plans, and we can't stop Satan's plans. Look for and support whatever Light is in the world; staring at the Darkness just gives it more power over you.
Perhaps this story will help, if you believe it.
Nature just happening by itself doesn't make as much sense as it being engineered and created by someone.
Science and God aren't mutually exclusive. In fact, I can't see having one without the other...
But we all have to choose for ourselves. What feels right to you?

Hey, I think they actually talked about it in a National Geographic series. Thanks for the link! I do wonder why this man (and so many others) can percieve images and sounds even though their brain is completely inactive. The answer may very well be that it is something else perceving those images/sounds instead of the brain... *cough* the spirit */end of cough*.
As I read more and more things about physics, I realized that all theories about the creation were about as far-fetched (and sometimes even more) than the theory that an intelligence created it all.
The most surprising aspect of this theory is that it was proposed by the Vatican (Lemaitre), not Hubble (as some still believe).
But theories are interpretations of this knowledge - alot of those are simply guesses but I see too much people beliving in those guesses.
Trillions of planets in our universe... at least 10^500 other universes in the Landscape... I feel that there is a certainty that one of those could be home to a supreme being which could match the christian God description.
If this something is God, does he still care about us?
It's actually the mind. His soul stayed in his body, since he didn't die.
For that doctor to have experienced what he experienced, there has to be a soul or a spirit or something similar that does not exist in the brain... and there's no way nature could be responsible for it. It could only be someone's creation.
Death unites the mind and soul, I think, once the body isn't separating them. I dunno, I could be completely wrong
Occam's Razor: "among competing hypotheses, the one that makes the fewest assumptions should be selected." I don't live by it, but a lot of scientists do. So how may assumptions does each theory of creation require? It's probably obvious, but I'll summarize:
God: That's it. "God exists and created everything" is the only assumption.
Nature: Start with every one of the laws of physics. And then stop, because there's no need to proceed further.
Georges Lemaître was a physicist who happened to be a Jesuit priest, not "The Vatican." The Vatican has disapproved of many Jesuit scientists' theories, like Teilhard's Omega Point, which actually makes some sense to me.
gravity thread. People kept saying "But quantum field THEORY invalidates your theory!" Oh, really. Well, then, I have a theory that colleges brainwash people, and THAT invalidates your invalidation! HA! I don't think anyone would accept that argument though... because they all like to think they're Clever and Intelligent.
Not as such. Can one live in a house before it's built?
but I have the feeling he was brought into being by "telicity," or temporal feedback that leads to a self-organized system. An introduction. Read the full PDF; you should only need an IQ of about 428 to understand it. That and the Omega Point are very similar. Once God exists, he will have always existed. Eternity is a circle. It's complicated. Where does any circle begin?
Dr. Eben Alexander said, "Not only is the universe defined by unity, it is also defined by love. The universe as I experienced it in my coma is the same one that both Einstein and Jesus were speaking of in their very different ways."
And ATS has ridiculously small limits on post sizes. Or maybe I ramble too much...
I am also not a big fan of Occam's Razor.
A Jesuit? Oh. I was a bit off sorry
Wasn't the Illuminati (which was supposed to unite science with religion) a group of Jesuits?
so all galaxies stop tumbling once humans believe in dark matter? Did those galaxies, after being born tilted, signed an Intergalactical Agreement to "stop all secondary movements relative to each other except rush-away movements and collision courses"?
God could live in the first house that was ever built. But nothing would prevent the parent universe from interacting with the children universe. Thus our time may have a value of zero when you go back to its beginning, but it wouldn't be so in God's universe.
Some people no doubt are wondering why I often attack physics. The truth is, I am trying to make it evolve.
BTW your discovery about Vatican's camera is incredible. Maybe JP II will be the Peter of the Prediction? The Popes "ressurects", and he "discovers" that the "true religion" is to worship one's self and Mother Nature, all that.
do you see another possible future? One of my christian friends here on ATS thinks Christ might come in 2018 - which is only 2 years off your 2020 hypothesis.
