Random Acts

Most ancient writing?:

In 2007, excavators of a remote site in southeastern Iran reported finding evidence of a writing system that dates back more than 4,000 years. Featuring odd geometric symbols, three baked mud tablets unearthed near the Iranian city of ­Jiroft could reveal much about a sophisticated and independent urban culture that flourished between the Mesopotamian and Indus Valley civilizations. However, many scholars are skeptical about the authenticity of the finds, which they ­suspect may have been planted by locals.

Of course “scholars” are skeptical. Any hard evidence of civilizations older than Sumer and Egypt are called into question. It’s amazing the evidence always seems to be “planted”  by the locals also.

Texas UFOs:

Several dozen people, including a pilot, county constable and business owners, insist they have seen a large silent object with bright lights flying low and fast. Some reported seeing fighter jets chasing it.

“People wonder what in the world it is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it’s the end of times,” said Steve Allen, a freight company owner and pilot who said the object he saw last week was a mile long and half a mile wide. “It was positively, absolutely nothing from these parts.”

No surprise that people in the so-called “Bible-Belt” equate UFOs with the End Times, the constant talk of the Rapture and 2012 have been spewed non-stop from all kinds of media for the past eight years.

I just wish they would land and claim Lehaye, Hagee and Junior Bu$h for pete’s sake!

British Space Station Modules:

Two habitation modules emblazoned with the United Kingdom‘s Union Jack could launch to the International Space Station (ISS) by 2011 under a new plan devised by British scientists and engineers.

The proposal — not yet official with the ISS partnership — would not only improve living conditions on board the space station, but would also allow the United Kingdom to join other nations that have a foothold in space.

“I don’t think there’s an excuse for us not to be engaged in manned launches,” said Mark Hempsell, aeronautical engineer at the University of Bristol and lead author on the proposal published in Spaceflight magazine.

It’s nice to see the Brits get into the Space Station action. I always wondered why they haven’t.

Do they know something we don’t?

  1. Slight change today. Might be permanent.

  2. “I just wish they would land and claim Lehaye, Hagee and Junior Bu$h for pete’s sake!”

    They’re headed over to a certain “lefty” place we know… there’s a bunch waiting for the bus to Alpha Centauri over there! Ha-ha!

    Yes, the “experts” are always skeptical, and so are their followers, marine. They are usually the last to come around, after everyone else has. That goes for the fundamentalist crowd, too.

    I’ve got no use for the “New Age” gang of La Haye et al, and that Zionist-bar-none Hagee! They should harness the wind power in that fat body to power some generator, somewhere. I’ve never disagreed there’s a fundamentalist problem, I just don’t like being tagged with them.

    There are too many discrepancies for me to take radiocarbon dating (of that antiquity) or any other ‘scientific’ measurement seriously, and the “locals”, at times, have been guilty of padding the books. What surprises me is that a crowd that whores after globalist tales of planetary warming seems to overlook the fact that such an event HAS to effect radiometric isotopes as well! I don’t say that’s the case, here, but it’s a flaw in the ‘logic’ of environmentalism.

    Another piece of the puzzle needing placement.

  3. There are too many discrepancies for me to take radiocarbon dating

    Typically there’s a 200-300 year leeway at the 4000-5000 year range, not large, but still there. Yes, I know unknown chemical changes in the materials being tested can discredit the whole finding. Until there’s a better method, I’ll grant them that percentage.

    I have no doubt that the locals in some cases have faked artifacts, but not in all cases. There’s ways to authenticate these things. That’s where the trouble comes in, if someone does authenticate an OOPArt and the “establishment” finds out, they censor it quicker than sh*t.

    And the NWO maintains their illusion.

  4. I still think there may have been far different conditions prevalent in the Earth of thousands of years ago… and what impact has nuclear testing had upon the environment? Are the carbon levels the same as they were thousands of years ago, and are the organisms the same, and if so, did they release carbon at the same rate at that time than now? I’ve heard that not all organisms release carbon at the same rate in our modern world, either.

    Where do they get that “200-300” figure from… what is their basis for that particular estimate? Couldn’t it only come from experiential testing, and how can they know for certain that the testing is sound when they are dealing with a science only a few decades old? There hasn’t been centuries of data-collecting going on to verify their conclusions.

    I think the problem is we are trying to examine an ancient biosphere using the present physical and environmental conditions as the rule of thumb. Just like the presence of out-of-place artifacts appearing in strata supposedly predating human existence would tend to nullify the case for evolution, attempting to define a world that was vastly different by all accounts by modern criteria seems ridiculous.

    As you have said, there are many factors that we know of that could have influenced the analysis. What about the factors we are yet unaware of? To me, this presents a case for reasonable doubt, but it’s taught in secular schools… well… as dogma, there is no other way to put it, and no leeway allowed for ‘alternative’ explanations. That is, if you want your degree and/or your research grant!
