The Flat Earth Mentality

A mental disease sweeps the globe, and it afflicts more than just those who believe that the Earth is flat. No, it’s far more pervasive and sinister than that.

It’s a disease that has destroyed peoples and nations throughout history. It reaches into our schools, our homes and our friendships. And, it’s a disease that will blind you to truth, if you allow it to take hold, in your life.

I call it a ‘Flat Earth Mentality’, but it might be better described as a desire to believe the fantastic, in the face of obvious and provable truth.

After writing ‘An Era of Insanity‘ last week, I was hoping that I could leave the topic of insanity behind. But alas, it was not to be the case.

On Saturday, T2L left this comment on last week’s article:

https://www.sott.net/article/382127-One-third-of-millennials-surveyed-arent-sure-the-Earth-is-round A new generation has been identified: Generation Forest Gump. As per DH.

I saw it on Monday, and promptly went berserk. Here was my response:

Hi T2L,

WHAT?!?!?!?! Even GUMP wasn’t that stupid!

A THIRD of Millennials don’t know for sure if the Earth is a sphere?

(WAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!)

It sounds like America is regressing back to the Dark Ages. And, it is a demonstration of the failure of public school education.

And, for those who believe that the Earth is FLAT, you are a moron. Sorry, but that’s the truth. Worse, you are defaming the name of Christ, when you claim that the Bible shows that the Earth is Flat. It doesn’t, and you’re a moron, if you say so.

It is an evil thing for someone to give the enemies of God, the fuel that they want to damage the name of Christ. If you are a Flat Earther, you are doing that. That’s right, Mr. EarthIsFlat… YOU.

Worse, Flat Earthers are more than just drooling idiots, they are also disgusting and lazy. Instead of going to that stupid convention of theirs in Denver, they could pool their money and send someone on a trip from Santiago, Chile to Sydney, Australia, on a non-stop flight.

But, they are too stupid and evil-hearted to do that. They would rather hold the name of Christ up to be mocked, than to have their precious and stupid ‘theory’ be destroyed.

Morons.

These foul, disgusting and evil cretins need to be shipped off to some island, where they can’t bother anyone.

If you are a Flat Earther, get on that plane to Sydney, or get out of my sight, you moron.

Sorry about that rant, T2L, but that hit a nerve. WAAAAAAAAH! That definitely – Lord willing – goes in on Friday.

(WAAAAAAH!)

Yours in Christ,

Most Are Not Evil

Now that I’ve had time to calm down a bit, I need to clarify that most Flat Earthers aren’t evil. But, some are DIABOLICAL. In fact, I suspect that leaders of the Flat Earth Movement are engaged in a cynical plan to trick Flat Earthers out of their money. So, let me double down on the need to warn everyone that Flat Earthers are holding up Christ to be mocked by the unbelievers – as well as just being stupid.

To emphasize, let me put it another way:

Our Lord and Savior is being mocked, because evil deceivers have convinced drooling idiots to believe that the Earth is flat.

I have sympathy for drooling idiots and cretins. I really do. I feel sorry for people who suffer from such a low IQ, or who have been honestly tricked into believing the impossible. They have my pity, as well as my desire to free them from their stupidity.

The Leaders Are Evil

The evil deceivers, who are leading their ‘flock’ into this error, get an entirely different response from me. THOSE people will suffer the Wrath of God, and I will cheer God on, as He rebukes these foul fiends from Hell.

Please understand that the Bible DOES NOT DESCRIBE THE EARTH AS BEING FLAT. And, this is the second reason why this belief bugs me so much. The leadership of the Flat Earthers are deliberately distorting the precious words of God, and are teaching their followers to do the same.

HOW DARE THEY DO THIS!!!

I always get incredibly upset when I see people distort the words of God. It is a vile and evil thing to do, and I get horribly upset every time that I see it. I just can’t help it. And, the list of people who do this is way too long.

Lots of us have done this. I have done it. You have done it. But, when we find that out, we redouble our efforts to NOT do it. And, I have dedicated my life to never distorting the words of God. Ever.

I would rather die than distort the words of God. And, I mean that with all of my heart.

Now, most of you (but, only most) agree with me, that belief in a Flat Earth is awful, but you probably don’t know how pervasive it has become.

Do you want to know how many diehard believers in a Flat Earth there are?

Are you sure that you want to know?

Remember, what has been seen cannot be unseen. So, I’m giving you this chance to turn away, right now…

(dramatic pause!)

The Number Of Flat Earthers In America

So, here is the number of Americans who firmly and absolutely believe that the Earth is Flat:

Six Million.

In fact, the figure is MORE than that. And, that’s not including those who are ‘unsure’ or ‘tend to agree with the idea of a Flat Earth’. So, let’s get into the weeds, and look at the numbers:

On the Millennials (22-37):

…34% of which either don’t know, are unsure or firmly believe that the Earth is FLAT.

On Young Millennials (18-24):

…4% firmly believe that the Earth is flat, and have always believed that the Earth is flat.

On Americans as a whole:

…84% believe that the world is a sphere (aka, round)

…5% always thought the world was round, but more recently are skeptical/have doubts

…2% believe that the Earth is flat and have always believed that the Earth is flat.

…52% of Flat Earthers are ‘Very Religious’.

Statistics from:

https://today.yougov.com/news/2018/04/02/most-flat-earthers-consider-themselves-religious/

Now, with those statistics in mind, here’s more:

Flat Earthers: Social Data on The Wildest Conspiracy Theory Yet
https://www.brandwatch.com/blog/react-flat-earthers/

Proof That The Earth Is A Sphere

Now, I don’t really want to talk about this stupid theory. I want to talk about the mental disease that keeps it alive. However, there are enough people out there, who believe it, that I need to debunk it first. So, let’s do that.

In my article from 2015, called Escaping the Flat Earth Society, I used this YouTube video:

The Flat Earth Conspiracy Debate! Yes, Really.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsOz_J6tJVU

Now, in the above video, jimmie montgomery left this cogent comment a month ago:

I was a charter boat captain in the 70s. I had to learn how to navigate without any electronics, just a good watch, compass and a sextant with some trig formulas. Haven’t had a flat earther answer why do I have to plot a rhumb (curved) line on a flat map over long distances? Because if I didn’t plot a rhumb line I would miss the Hawaiian Islands by over 100 miles from California. The Mercator maps used in navigation are a projection of a spheroid onto a flat surface. I do not know a single navigator that thinks the world is flat. I think that the people who claim the Bible does teach a flat earth are working for atheist organizations to make Christianity look foolish. Saying things like rockets can’t work in the vacuum of space because there isn’t anything for them to push against, comes to mind. Did you not learn anything about physics? For every action there is and equal and opposite reaction.

I hope that you understand what Jimmie said. You cannot navigate the Ocean, while believing that the Earth is flat. You just can’t. It is not possible.

Here are three more YouTube videos:

Here is this page that asks an important question:

A Question for Flat Earth Theorists
http://www.logosapologia.org/a-question-for-flat-earth-theorists/

And, this website has LOTS of information to wade through:

Flat Earth Lunacy
http://flatearthlunacy.com/

Now, here are some bits of proof that pop out of my head every time this topic comes up:

The Sydney-Santiago Flight – Quantas Airlines

When I posted posted my 2015 article on this subject, I mentioned one bit of proof that makes a tremendous amount of sense to me. I said this:

Qantas has a non-stop flight from Sydney, Australia to Santiago, Chile that takes about the same amount of time as Los Angeles to Tokyo.

Don’t believe me?

Check it out for yourself:

https://www.google.com.tw/search?q=Sydney+to+Santiago

There is absolutely no way that the Earth is flat. But, there is equally no way that I will convince you, because you are in love with your own view of reality.

I clicked that link just now, and it says that this flight would take 12 hours and 35 minutes. And, it also says that there are four flights per week, on that route.

If the Earth were Flat, that route would take more than 40 hours, since it would mean that the plane had to fly North, up through North America and then down the coast of China. It doesn’t. And, the planes don’t carry that much fuel.

Well, after writing my article, I received confirmation from a reader, about my point that the Sydney-Santiago route was real, and that it proved that the Earth was a sphere. That reader’s name is Brett:

John, sorry I read your post and just have to reply. Firstly, I can assure you that planes do fly those routes. How do I know? I fly them. Who has taken these flights and where are the testimonies? Once again, look in my logbook and ask my wife and two kids where I disappear to for a few days at a time when I go to work. As for departure and arrival times and distances covered. Well that varies depending on winds, weather etc but as I’ve mentioned, today’s flight covered 6174nm. Out of sheer curiosity I watched that YouTube link you posted. The gentleman claimed the Sydney to Chile flight doesn’t actually happen. I would be embarrassed to have shared that 100% incorrect video. I do apologise if this comes across arrogant, however things like this don’t help us, or give us any credibility in fact, when it comes to spreading the message of Christ.

I was NOT expecting that, so it was good to have a bit of a personal confirmation.

(Clear skies and safe landings, Brett!)

The Joel Richardson Flat Earth Challenge

This brings to mind a video that I watched last year, a video by Joel Richardson – where he issued a challenge to any Flat Earther who is willing to put his belief to the test. Joel said that he was willing to fly with a Flat Earth believer from Santiago, Chile to Sydney, Australia and back, on that direct flight that I described above.

If the Earth is flat, that flight should take 44 hours, one way.

However, as I said before, Qantas says that the flight takes a little over 12 hours, one way.

The challenge goes like this:

If the flight takes about 12 hours, the Flat Earther pays for both tickets.

If the flight takes the amount of time that you would expect from a Flat Earth – about 44 hours – then Joel Richardson will pay for both tickets.

That’s a pretty good challenge.

Have ANY Flat Earthers shown enough courage to take up that challenge?

Of course not. And THAT shows us what the Flat Earthers really are:

cowards.

That’s right. Cowards.

Round The World Yacht Races

Then, there are these yacht races that race around Antarctica. Here are the ones that I found:

Sunday Times Golden Globe Race
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunday_Times_Golden_Globe_Race

Velux 5 Oceans Race
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velux_5_Oceans_Race

The Vendée Globe

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volvo_Ocean_Race

The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clipper_Round_the_World_Yacht_Race

And, those are just the results of a quick search. There might be even MORE ’round the world races’ out there.

The Epiphany Of TigerDan925

Then, someone who calls himself TigerDan925, came forward with a heart-wrenching journey. The poor guy had been caught up in the lies of the Flat Earth movement, and he discovered that the Flat Earth map just could not be true. And, since he was a man of integrity, he had to tell everyone that he had been wrong about the shape of the Earth.

Here is the very beginning of his journey to the truth:

Flat Earth Liars exposed. MAP. Antarctic isn’t the outer perimeter

YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/yWKCnoKM_BI

I ran across that video, in this article from 2016:

Flat-Earthers are back: ‘It’s almost like the beginning of a new religion’
https://www.theguardian.com/science/2016/jan/20/flat-earth-believers-youtube-videos-conspiracy-theorists

And, here are the first two paragraphs from that article:

YouTube user TigerDan925 shocked his 26,000 followers recently by conceding a shocking point: Antarctica is a continent. It’s not, as he previously thought, an ice wall that encircles the flat disc of land and water we call earth.

For most of us, that’s not news. But TigerDan925’s followers, like Galileo’s 17th century critics, are outraged by his heresy. Welcome to the contentious universe of flat-Earthers – people who believe the notion of a globe-shaped world orbiting the sun is a myth.

But, TigerDan925 was just getting started.

He then tried understand what was going on, why there was such a problem with what he was seeing. And, this series of videos documents his growing realization that the Flat Earth idea was a scam:

Flat earth could be a big deception? Liars Scared. MAP SCAM exposed!!!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Z_TEHMnsfE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCljrqozdY8

Flat Earth Deception 5/10 Horizon, Liars & scams EXPOSED
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVEidRinrnI

At the beginning of that series, you could tell that he wasn’t ready to toss out all the lies of the Flat Earthers, so he planned to do ten videos digging into the research. But, you’ll notice that he couldn’t get past video five. There just wasn’t anything more to do.

The Flat Earth Scam had been fully exposed, for all the world to see. So, he stopped there and went dark.

TigerDan925, you are a man of integrity and honesty. You did the right thing, when you found out that you were wrong, and I salute you for it. God bless you, brother!

The Flat Earth MENTALITY

Now that I’ve taken more than two thousand words to describe and debunk the foolishness of Flat Earthers, I really want to get into the MENTALITY. I want to describe the mental disease that is afflicting these poor people that believe in this foolish scam. And, I believe that some of the mentality can be described by an article sent to me by Mike in Idaho:

The American Dunning-Kruger Epidemic (Or Why Ignorant People Are So Sure They’re Right)
https://www.theorganicprepper.com/the-dunning-kruger-epidemic/

 – Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper

Mike wasn’t expecting me to be talking about Flat Earthers. In his email to me, he mentioned other things. But he hit a nerve, right when I was thinking about what to write.

So, let make take you through Daisy Luther’s article and talk about this Dunning-Kruger Effect. And, let’s start with a definition:

The Dunning Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which individuals, who are unskilled at a particular task, believe themselves to possess above-average ability in performing the task. On the other hand, as individuals become more skilled in a particular task, they may mistakenly believe that they possess below-average ability in performing those tasks because they may assume that all others possess equal or greater ability. In other words, “the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others”

 – http://www.psychologyconcepts.com/dunning-kruger-effect/

Then, in her article, Daisy takes us through some practical examples:

Those who haven’t lived like the rest of us are the ones shouting the loudest.

Let’s start with the current gun control debate.

We have high school kids who think they are experts on policy, firearms, and the Constitution, smugly telling us how clueless they believe we are.

We have movie stars who make millions from movies where they shoot people and who are protected by armed security guards, telling us that we law-abiding citizens who have guns are vicariously responsible for every school shooting that has ever happened.

We have wealthy city dwellers who live in buildings with doormen telling the rest of us that we’re nuts for wanting to protect ourselves.

And all of these people who want to loudly tell the rest of us how to live our lives have one thing in common: they are completely out of touch with the real world.

Then, Daisy Luther mentions an article written in 2014 by David Dunning – the ‘Dunning’ of ‘Dunning-Kruger’. That article was called:

We Are All Confident Idiots
https://psmag.com/social-justice/confident-idiots-92793

That’s a loooong article, but there were some valuable insights and observations in it. So I will quote some of them:

In many cases, incompetence does not leave people disoriented, perplexed, or cautious. Instead, the incompetent are often blessed with an inappropriate confidence, buoyed by something that feels to them like knowledge.

——-

The American author and aphorist William Feather once wrote that being educated means “being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don’t.” As it turns out, this simple ideal is extremely hard to achieve. Although what we know is often perceptible to us, even the broad outlines of what we don’t know are all too often completely invisible. To a great degree, we fail to recognize the frequency and scope of our ignorance.

——-

Like Jimmy Kimmel’s victims, bankrupted respondents were particularly allergic to saying “I don’t know.” Pointedly, when getting a question wrong, they were 67 percent more likely to endorse a falsehood than their peers were. Thus, with a head full of “knowledge,” they considered their financial literacy to be just fine.

——-

An ignorant mind is precisely not a spotless, empty vessel, but one that’s filled with the clutter of irrelevant or misleading life experiences, theories, facts, intuitions, strategies, algorithms, heuristics, metaphors, and hunches that regrettably have the look and feel of useful and accurate knowledge. This clutter is an unfortunate by-product of one of our greatest strengths as a species. We are unbridled pattern recognizers and profligate theorizers. Often, our theories are good enough to get us through the day, or at least to an age when we can procreate. But our genius for creative storytelling, combined with our inability to detect our own ignorance, can sometimes lead to situations that are embarrassing, unfortunate, or downright dangerous—especially in a technologically advanced, complex democratic society that occasionally invests mistaken popular beliefs with immense destructive power (See: crisis, financial; war, Iraq). As the humorist Josh Billings once put it, “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” (Ironically, one thing many people “know” about this quote is that it was first uttered by Mark Twain or Will Rogers—which just ain’t so.)

——-

But something curious started happening as we began to look at the people who did extremely badly on our little quiz. By now, you may be able to predict it: These people expressed more, not less, confidence in their performance. In fact, people who got none of the items right often expressed confidence that matched that of the top performers. Indeed, this study produced the most dramatic example of the Dunning-Kruger effect we had ever seen: When looking only at the confidence of people getting 100 percent versus zero percent right, it was often impossible to tell who was in which group.

——-

Some of our most stubborn misbeliefs arise not from primitive childlike intuitions or careless category errors, but from the very values and philosophies that define who we are as individuals. Each of us possesses certain foundational beliefs—narratives about the self, ideas about the social order—that essentially cannot be violated: To contradict them would call into question our very self-worth. As such, these views demand fealty from other opinions. And any information that we glean from the world is amended, distorted, diminished, or forgotten in order to make sure that these sacrosanct beliefs remain whole and unharmed.

——-

The way we traditionally conceive of ignorance—as an absence of knowledge—leads us to think of education as its natural antidote. But education can produce illusory confidence.

——-

It is perhaps not so surprising to hear that facts, logic, and knowledge can be bent to accord with a person’s subjective worldview; after all, we accuse our political opponents of this kind of “motivated reasoning” all the time. But the extent of this bending can be remarkable.

——-

(This next one is what Israel did, after the intelligence failures of the 1973 Yom Kippur War – and for exactly this reason. – JL)

But here is the real challenge: How can we learn to recognize our own ignorance and misbeliefs? To begin with, imagine that you are part of a small group that needs to make a decision about some matter of importance. Behavioral scientists often recommend that small groups appoint someone to serve as a devil’s advocate—a person whose job is to question and criticize the group’s logic. While this approach can prolong group discussions, irritate the group, and be uncomfortable, the decisions that groups ultimately reach are usually more accurate and more solidly grounded than they otherwise would be.

——-

Because it’s so easy to judge the idiocy of others, it may be sorely tempting to think this doesn’t apply to you. But the problem of unrecognized ignorance is one that visits us all.

Okay, that was a LOT, but the article was long. And, it was packed with interesting thoughts and observations.

Pride And Strong Delusion

Now that I think about what David Dunning said, I believe that a more appropriate title would be:

We Are All Proud And Confident Idiots

It is our pride that seems to get in the way of our ability to recognize that we are wrong. And, God HATES pride. He calls it an abomination, and I must confess to having been abominable in the eyes of God – far, far too often.

But, there’s something else called the ‘Love of the Truth’:

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 – 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

This Flat Earth Movement is just one of the strong delusions that afflict us. In fact, it might be the least of those that are destroying us.

If you believe in a Flat Earth, then YOU are one of those that Paul is talking about. Unfortunately, all the other mental diseases afflicting our society are included, here – like communism, racism, anti-Semitism, Islam, etc. You’ll certainly see some of it in the research section, below. Utterly, absolutely, INSANE.

But, let’s add more verses:

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

 – Romans 1:21

And, here’s another one:

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

 – 2 Timothy 3:1-7

Ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth… THAT describes a host of pastors and Christians that I’ve had to deal with. The amount of dishonesty and corruption in our churches is suffocating. In fact, that whole list is a damning accusation towards Christians in North and South America, and Europe.

I am truly shocked at how awful we have become. I am constantly on the lookout for those who have integrity and a love of the truth, and I find very few. So very few.

But, this was prophesied, so I need to try and temper my outrage with the knowledge that the Last Days were ALWAYS going to be like this. I’m just so sorry to see it.

The Horror Of Preterism

For instance, to my horror, I heard someone tell me that all the prophecies of the Bible were completed by AD 70. All of them.

How utterly insane.

That’s called Preterism and it is a damnable heresy that will get you erased from the Book of Life – according to Revelation 22:19.

Pretribbers, Anti-Semites and Communists (Oh My!)

Then, there are those who believe in a Pretribulation Rapture. They have no proof. There is no verse that describes it, but they will curse your name, if you tell them – with proof – that we are going through The Great Tribulation.

The anti-Semites also have the same Flat Earth Mentality. They devoutly believe that all the problems of this world are caused by the Jews. And, the Christian anti-Semites (like Rick Wiles) are worse, in their denial that God has plans for Israel.

Communists and Socialists are just as bad. They somehow believe in an inherent goodness of mankind – if we could just get rid of all those horrible capitalists. And the Anarcho-Capitalist Libertarians aren’t far behind, believing that no rules and no government will bring about utopia.

Please, PLEASE, spare us from the murderous utopians!

In fact, let me borrow from my 2015 article again, and ask a long-winded question.

Do you believe that…

…there’s a secret Jewish conspiracy of Khazars?

…Islam worships the same god as Christianity?

…Islam is a religion of peace?

…World Trade Center Building Seven collapsed due to terrorism?

…the Jesuits are merely the ‘intellectual’ arm of the Catholic Church?

…Christianity and the theory of Evolution are compatible?

…all Christians will be whisked away, before the Antichrist comes?

…the economy is doing great, and our financial future is bright?

…the Bible cannot possibly be true? (Shiver! I could barely write that!)

…Israel is the cause of all the conflict in the Middle East?

…the Earth is flat?

If you believe ANY of those, YOU suffer from a Flat Earth Mentality. I could throw up all kinds of evidence to disprove ALL of the fallacies inherent in what you believe, but it won’t matter to you. You believe what you believe, and you do not want to be confused with the facts.

And, I have decades of experience, raging against the idiocy that humanity suffers from. Decades. And, I have the scars to prove it.

Easier To Fool People Than Convince Them Of The Truth

Of course, it is possible that you might hold some of the above lies as true, but aren’t sure. I hope that this is the case, because it means that you MIGHT be willing to see the truth. But… I doubt it.

You see…

It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. - Mark Twain

It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.
– Mark Twain (maybe)

Since the 1990s, I’ve been writing about the truth of Israel and what the Arab-Israeli conflict is really all about. But, people would rather listen to the lies that they see on television, or in their newspaper.

Since 2011, I’ve been writing about the ever larger body of lies that have been afflicting our minds every single day and endangering our lives. But, trying to get people to see the truth is harder than convincing them to believe in a lie. And, deep down…

…I just don’t get it.

Yes, I understand that this is a part of God’s judgment, as He turns us over to the insanity that results from a sinful life, but it is just so bizarre. I do not understand why people who seem able to tie their shoes, walk upright and even drive a car…

…but find it too hard to see the stunningly obvious.

And, I’ve finally realized that such people believe that the Earth is flat.

Oh, it’s possible that some of these people haven’t gotten that far, yet. But, given time and space, I am convinced that they will come to believe that the Earth really is being carried about by a gigantic space turtle.

(Raise your hand if get the allusion.)

It Will End Our Civilization

Ultimately, our insanity will destroy us. In fact, I believe that it already has. I honestly do not think that even a massive dose of ‘sudden sanity’ will save us from the destruction that is already rolling down upon us.

The best that we can do is serve God and prepare for the worst. Oh, and after everything falls apart, we’ll also do our best to help the poor idiots with a Flat Earth Mentality.

Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.

And yes, these are pretty serious.

The Truth about Flat Earth! – YouTube

Wait. These Flat Earth morons are beginning to mainstream media attention?

(facepalm)

And, one of the morons actually had the audacity to say that we believe in getting PROOF.

Well, here’s an idea. Get on a plane from Santiago, Chile and fly to Sydney, Australia. THERE is your PROOF.

But, they don’t want to do that.

And THAT means that they have an evil heart, while being a drooling idiot.

So, unless you get on that plane to Sydney Australia, I’m going to tell you to shut up and sit down.

Morons.

UPDATE: I just looked at the comments to this video… WOW. At this moment, Monday evening, Taiwan time, there must be 50 flat earthers to every commenter who believes that the Earth is a sphere.

WOW.

Please. Flat Earthers….

STOP. BEING. A. MORON!!!!!!!

Everything We Know – EXPOSED! – YouTube

When Jason A exposed the Flat Earthers, they attacked him mercilessly. So, he responded with this video. I wish that he would stop such click-bait titles that have nothing to do with the content of his videos.

But, it’s still a good video.

The truth in love. That’s the content.

It Begins: California Senator Introduces Bill to Kill Free Speech, Requires State-Sanctioned Fact Checkers to Approve Online Content

If you want to know how the Beast System rises, it rises like this. They restrict your ability to speak. They restrict the way that you buy and sell. They limit your political choices. They then take your children and brainwash them – as they brainwash you.

Pretty soon, a tattoo with the number 666, will seem like the most logical thing in the world.

And, I love how this article ends, with quote:

Scratch a liberal, find a fascist.

– James Woods

Who knew that an actor could be so smart?

Astonishing California bill would shut down free speech, require fact-checkers « Jon Rappoport’s Blog

The core of the previous article, is this one, by Jon Rappoport.

How could a moron like Richard Pan, get to be so evil?

Then, I looked at his bio and discovered why:

Harvard.

I’m sure that there are other reasons, but that is probably the biggest one. Some of the worst morons come out of Harvard. And, he’s about my age, so I understand a little bit of the indoctrination that brainwashed him.

This is so sick, that it’s hard to believe. And, I want a baseball bat and permission from God to bash heads. But, God doesn’t hand out permission like that, so I must sit here and fume at the evil being perpetrated before our very eyes.

And then, John Rappoport ends with these lines:

If, 10 or 15 years ago, someone told you a bill like SB1424 was going to come before a state legislature for a vote, you would have thought you were listening to a Hollywood pitch for a sci-fi movie script.

But now it’s real. It’s here. Believe it.

CRUSH IT.

Unfortunately, you can’t.

Why?

Because the reason why it is here in the first place is due to the sin within our churches. I’ve seen this sin firsthand, and it is vile and horrifying.

And, I saw an example of it, just recently.

There is no hope for America and the world, as long as the wolves rule the church.

New California Bill Would ELIMINATE Free Speech, Require ‘Online Fact Checkers’

And, here’s the Mac Slavo take on this horrendous piece of foul legislation.

Who knew that such a benign looking guy – Richard Pan – could be so diabolical?

GOLD & SILVER: High Quality Store Of Value, Fragile Nature Of Currencies – YouTube

There is a chart in here that shows the change in the interest payments that oil companies are having to shell out.

In 2013, the interest payments were $5.7 billion. In 2017, they were $15.4 billion. That is a DRAMATIC increase in debt service, over just four years.

Guys, oil companies are in trouble, and that means YOU are in trouble. Lots of trouble.

How will you get to your job, when the cost of getting to your job is too high?

Mainstream anti-Semitism in Europe is at a level not seen since WW2 — Quartz

I love how this article says…

The rise in the populist movement in Europe has been stoked by anti-immigration sentiment, mostly from right-wing parties.

It’s as if ‘populism’ isn’t democracy. People like the writer of this piece are elitists who do not want democracy. They hate it. They only want democracy, if the people choose what THEY want.

Remember this James Woods quote:

Scratch a Liberal, and Find a Fascist Every Time

It’s the truth. So, when Europe lashes back at the Leftists who are stealing the freedoms of Europeans – and bringing in waves of barbarians – it is the Left who is giving the anti-Semites a chance to rise.

So, you can lay the blame this rise of anti-Semitism on the Left. The did this.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t change the FACT that the Jews are in big trouble in Europe. Very big trouble. And, the only place of safety for them, is Israel or the US (for now).

And please, to my dear Jewish friends in the US, could you PLEASE stop it with the tendency to be left wing?

Being left wing is stupid, and you are smarter than that.

Yes, I know that Judaism has a soft heart that is full of love for your fellow man. I experienced it myself in Israel. But, there is such a thing as being so soft, that you become the drool of the drooling idiots.

British Jews, on the other hand, have woken up to how awful the Left is, especially to people like Jeremy Corbyn – the leader of the Labour Party. That disgusting anti-Semite has woken up the Jewish people in Britain, like no one else:

“His followers and supporters openly share on social media some of the most malevolent Holocaust denial and international Jewish banking conspiracies reminiscent of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, some of this is sometime even condoned by Corbyn himself. It leads us to believe that this normalization of Jew-hatred has reached the highest levels,” said Kantor.

And, Corbyn is a part of a movement responsible for a 34% increase in anti-Semitic, physical assaults in Britain, in 2017.

“Corbyn has systematically failed to take a strong enough line on anti-Semitism, aligning himself with people and groups that hold openly anti-Semitic views and seek to spread their offensive messages throughout our society. When Corbyn consistently refuses to seriously acknowledge his party’s anti-Semitism problem, it becomes clear to many that anti-Semitism is acceptable,” said Kantor.

And, this last quote resonates with what I have been seeing more and more, everywhere on the Internet:

Kantor said “if in previous years we saw different types of anti-Semitism—anti-Semitism of the far-right, anti-Semitism of the far-left, and an anti-Semitism masked as anti-Israel—now it has transformed more openly into classic anti-Semitism. There has been an increase in open, unashamed and explicit hatred directed against Jews. The Jew as exploiter, the Jew as killer, the Jew as banker. It is like we have regressed 100 years.”

This insane hatred needs to stop. It really does.

If it doesn’t, it will destroy Europe.

Of course, it won’t stop, so Europe will be destroyed. Anti-Semitism is ALWAYS a precursor for destruction. Always.

 

ARTICLES OF NOTE

These articles have a more individual importance. They cross categories, and are often in their own category. And, I think that these should be your first stop in your reading.

India Builds Over 14,000 Bunkers In Preparation For War With Pakistan | Zero Hedge

This is NOT good, kids. Not good at all.

DHS Head Kirstjen Nielsen Deploys the Guard , 2140 – YouTube

The American political system is so insane, that the President of the United States needs to deploy a military force to stop illegal immigrants.

When will the insanity end?

Man who was raised by wolves in a cave admits he’s disappointed with human life – Mirror Online

It is a heartbreaking commentary on how awful we are. We are cruel. We are indifferent to the suffering of others. We don’t care about each other. We are selfish. And, when someone is in need, we tell them to be warmed and filled, but don’t raise a finger to provide for them. And, I know, as I write this, that I am deficient in this area, too.

So, I say to those of you who believe that their country or society is ‘basically good’… is it really?

To paraphrase Jesus in Matthew 12:39, we are an evil and adulterous generation.

Twitter CEO endorses leftist blueprint to drive conservatives from public life

Isn’t it great that Twitter wants to destroy everything that is good and moral and right, and replace it with the most horrifying examples of depravity, stupidity and waste?

They want to turn America in the another version of the People’s Republic of California.

Will these guys bring back the Nazi salute? Or will they use something different?

Just curious.

Syphilis outbreaks predicted by Google searches, tweets – Washington Times

You may not realize this, but YOU are predictable. We all are. And, this article provides proof that we are.

That predictability is also proof that we don’t have as much ‘free will’ as you think. And, it would be interesting to sit down and do a study of this hard-to-pin-down concept.

We will always be a slave to our own desires. And, if there is ANY free will, it is in the desires that we choose.

I desire God.

How about you?

In 2020, German society will start collapsing | GEFIRA

This is a horrendous catastrophe in the making, starting at 2020. Here’s the last paragraph:

In conclusion, Germany’s problems will only start to accelerate after 2020 when every year the working age population will be reduced by 400 thousand people; by 2028 this number will amount to three-quarters of a million. The disappearance of the German nation will entail the next systemic crisis.

THAT, my friends, is BAD.

The Curse Of Cultural Marxism – YouTube

It’s the irrepressible Pat Condell, and he says:

Progressivism is Marxism attempting to wear a liberal mask, and failing.

But, he says it with such delicious irony.

Will INDONESIA Be The New MUSLIM POWERHOUSE? – VisualPolitik EN – YouTube

An interesting and sympathetic video about a country that has grown in presence here in Taiwan – after the diplomatic explosion with the Philippines. A lot of Indonesian workers are here, and it’s unsettling to see Muslim headscarves on the Metro, here in Taipei – especially, since I lived with Islamic terrorism in Jerusalem, for 15 years.

The question that this video raises, is whether Indonesia will ‘stay the course’ towards a moderate, secularist government. Or, will it allow the Islamic radicals take over.

If the radicals take over – and it looks like it might – China will have a HUGE threat to it trade route through Southeast Asia. Indonesia could block that trade, very very easily, so China isn’t going to be happy with an Islamic Republic of Indonesia.

However, the biggest problem will be the Christians living in Indonesia. We are being persecuted by the radicals, and it will only get worse, when they take power. So, pray for our brothers and sisters there.

Zuckerberg Doesn’t Know — ‘Team� | The Daily Caller

Hmmmm… It’s Mark ‘I-know-nothing’ Zuckerberg.

Really, Mark? You know nothing?

Did you think that we were stupid?

Video: Ted Cruz Scorches Mark Zuckerberg on Conservative Censorship » Alex Jones’ Infowars: There’s a war on for your mind!

Mark Zuckerberg is a slimy piece of work. He has allowed his ‘platform’ to become a voice for the worst kinds of political and societal ideas, while censoring the ideas that disagree with his.

He’s a sanctimonious hypocrite of the worst kind. A dirtbag of the highest order.

REBUTTAL: John Oliver’s Crisis Pregnancy Center Propaganda! | Louder With Crowder – YouTube

I don’t think that I’ve ever taken the time to tell you that John Oliver is a dirtbag.

But, he really is. So, here I am, telling you that John ‘dirtbag’ Oliver… really is …a bag of dirt.

And, I really want to use words that I’m not allowed to use, but seem to describe him even better.

Hmmm… maybe I could call him a… a… FERMENTED bag of dirt. Well fermented.

The Onion on Twitter: “Facebook Employees Explain Daily Struggle Of Trying To Care About Company’s Unethical Practices When Gig So Cushy https://t.co/q9fT4ZTxW9”

CORRUPTION AND THE MILITARY TAKEOVER TO SOLVE IT

What is going on with Hillary and the corruption being revealed in Washington, is so huge… that I doubt that it is possible to emphasize enough, the seriousness of this situation. I believe that these revelations will eventually take down the Republic and replace the current government with one ruled by the generals. And please, do not discount this. Corruption is ALWAYS how republics and kingdoms fall – and how the military takes over.

Remember the generals that surround Trump.

This was not an accident.

However, please take note that public pressure for a military takeover never happens until people suffer economic and financial stress. So, don’t expect this ‘takeover’ to happen until the economy turns sharply downward. The military will not want to see a repeat of the French Revolution.

Judge Jeanine to GOP, Step Up and Govern, 2146 – YouTube

The Republicans are gutless wonders. They’re corrupt. They’re venal and disgusting. Most of ’em should be in jail.

And, the only thing worse than a Republican, is a Democrat.

Ghost Voters – New Proof of Election Fraud, 2148 – YouTube

There are 3.5 million fake voter registrations in America, and they are ‘voting’ for Democrats in ‘marginal’ counties. Close races are being swung in the Democrat’s favor, in these elections.

When will the corruption end?

The Secret Behind Muller’s Latest Desperate Move, 2152 – YouTube

All the Democrats in Washington D.C. need to be thrown in jail, and then investigated. Most of the Republicans should join them.

The leadership of the FBI and the DOJ should ALSO go to jail. In fact, They should hault the entire population of Washington D.C. to jail, and then let out those who are clearly innocent.

Better yet, do you remember that movie, Escape from New York?

I never saw it, but I know the storyline – where they walled off New York City, and threw in the criminals and let no one out.

Well, THAT would be PERFECT for Washington D.C. Wall the place off and shoot anyone to tries to leave.

Rod Rosenstein Personally Approved FBI Raid On Trump’s Lawyer: NYT | Zero Hedge

Senate GOP leaders warn Trump not to fire Mueller but reject calls for legislation to protect him – Chicago Tribune

The US Senate is FULL of Republican dirtbags. What morally corrupt and hypocritical fiends from Hell. And, don’t get me started on the Democrats.

Carl Bernstein: FBI raid was about ‘scaring the hell out of the president’

Well, if THAT is the case, then it was also about demonstrating how corrupt the FBI is.

If you use your ‘police powers’ to ‘scare the hell’ out of someone, then you are a corrupt, disgusting dirtbag.

How do people like that sleep at night?

GOP Congressman Rips Trump in Insane Tirade to Journo: ‘Evil, Really F*cking Stupid Forrest Gump’ | Mediaite

Yup. This is why Washington D.C. needs to be evacuated, plowed over, bombed flat, plowed over again and then turned into a radioactive waste dump.

And, the evacuees should not be allowed outside of a prison cell, unless they can prove that they aren’t corrupt dirtbags, like this.

Oh, and I was a low-level ‘insider’ within the Indiana Republican Party, in the 80s and early 90s. They were disgusting dirtbags then, and they are even MORE disgusting now.

If the GOP for a state as ‘reasonably good’ as Indiana, can be that bad… and it is …think about the other states.

The only thing worse than the Republicans, are the Democrats.

They ALL need to go to jail. ALL OF THEM. (Except for Rand Paul and a few others.)

Mueller – the Secret Agent of the Deep State? | Armstrong Economics

Here’s the last paragraph, of an article that is markedly longer than Martin normally writes:

This is the true definition of absolute tyranny. Mueller protected the Deep State in the Noriega case. It looks like he is the main secret agent of the Deep State in an all-out war against the Trump Administration. To accomplish that goal, Mueller will destroy the family, the legal privilege, and God. Anyone who stands in his way he will destroy with absolute immunity.

An agent of the Deep State?

It would not surprise me.

 

ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL COLLAPSE

We’ve been talking about the collapse of the economy and financial system for a very long time, and every day that collapse is delayed… well …the collapse just gets worse and worse. Eventually, it will be an explosion that will devastate the world and lead to chaos, confusion, death, destruction and war. Lots and lots of war.

In fact, it has begun already.

By the time that you see it, it will be too late to do anything about it.

GOP tax plan means short-term gains, but federal debt is primed to explode: CBO

Hey! Good news!

America’s Yearly Federal Debt Spending will equal the GDP of America by 2028.

Of course, that only tracks the FEDERAL deficit. We also have private and corporate debt.

Have I ever told you that we are… like …in a lot of trouble?

I have?

The share of Americans age 25-29 living with parents is the highest in 75 years — Quartz

MORONS AND MORE MORONS… WE’RE SURROUNDED BY MORONS

I’m sorry, but I can’t stand it anymore. There are just too many morons, so it needs its own category. And, I do this to maintain my own sanity. They’re driving me THAT crazy.

Now, here’s my rule for who appears in this section:

A person or organization who is EVIL ANNNND STUPID.

People who are just stupid, deserve our compassion. My heart goes out to them, because their life is going to be painful until they stop being stupid.

But, those who are evil?

Well, I want them to repent. I really do. I do NOT want ANYONE who is evil to suffer an eternity in Hell. But, if they refuse to repent, I want them destroyed.

May the wrath of God be upon all who refuse to repent. May the blessings of God be upon those who turn from their wicked ways and acknowledge God.

ISLAM

Islam is the most vile and Satanic religion on the planet. It is violent, repressive, racist and supremacist. It isn’t just a religion. It’s an ideology that seeks to destroy any nation, country and government that it comes in contact with.

These are the articles that demonstrate what Islam REALLY is.

What is wrong with North America and Europe?

Have they – and we – gone insane?

Jack Buckby: UK MP Naz Shah is an extremist and must resign now – YouTube

For those of you who are not familiar with Britain or Parliamentary Democracies, you might have a bit of a learning curve to overcome with this video. But, there is one thing that should be completely obvious to EVERYONE.

Wherever Muslims move in and take over an area, they will produce the most vile and evil politicians ever to walk planet Earth. And no, I am not engaging in hyperbole here.

Please remember that Islam was the only religion that Hitler loved – aside from his own, vicious form of paganism.

Naz is such an appropriate name for such a foul and evil politician like Shah. After all, she represents everything that is truly Nazi.

The Future of Europe is Civil War

And, it will be civil war because of the idiocy of the bureaucrats and the invasion of the Muslims.

And, it will be as completely and as utterly avoidable… as it will be insane.

 

GOG AND MAGOG

I’ve been writing about the coming of Gog and Magog for a while. You can find a lot of that, here:

So, Russia has had enough. She is turning away from the West.

“Toxic Assets”: Ruble Crashes, Russian Stocks Plunge Most In 4 Years After US Sanctions | Zero Hedge

Yeah. That bromance is over. These sanctions are going to hurt Russia, a lot. So, Russia will turn further and farther away from Europe and the US. Towards Asia and self sufficiency.

I predict a rather large backfire coming.

Russia news: Vladimir Putin warns Trump ‘you are in violation of everything’ | World | News | Express.co.uk

It seems that Trump’s domestic troubles might be part of the reason why he is taking such ‘hardline’ action. Of course, those actions are threats and sanctions – at the moment.

Will they go beyond that?

Only time will tell, but I think that you can see how the ‘Coming of Gog and Magog’ is being ‘maneuvered’ into place.

Prophecy is being fulfilled, right before our eyes.

Russia says it warned U.S. of ‘grave repercussions’ if Syria attacked

Since it makes no sense that Syria made this ‘chemical attack’ – if it WAS a chemical attack – an investigation should calm things down.

The problem is that events might not be allowed to ‘calm down’. Things are being artificially heated up.

Iran Threatens to Restart Nuke Enrichment Program in Matter of Days

Israel Caught in U.S.-Russia Rift Over Syria – WSJ

This is a difficult and dangerous position for Israel to be in, and ultimately… Israel will pay a horrifying price for the actions that America takes – when Gog and Magog arrives.

 

ISRAEL

There has been a sickening rise in anti-Semitism among those who call themselves christian. And yes, I used a lower case ‘c’ on purpose. I have little hope that I can turn these minions of Satan from their evil path. Salvation and repentance are the work of God, although I will do my best to serve God in that work.

I’m more interested in keeping my brothers and sisters from being tainted by this Satanic hatred of the Jews. If you are caught by this hatred, you will suffer. If you are convinced to oppose Israel, you will suffer. If you are turned away from supporting God’s work in the Land of Israel, you will suffer.

So, think of this category as my attempt to help you avoid the traps of Satan, that he has laid in your path. God is at work among the Jewish people and with the Jewish people. He is at work in the Land of Israel, turning the Jewish people from their idols and towards the true God of Abraham.

My goal is that you would be greatly blessed. But, you cannot be blessed, if you oppose God.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

– Psalm 122:6

May you prosper. And, may you understand how important the Land of Israel is, in these Last Days.

Hey, it’s the mainstream media, trying to claim that Israel murders kids, without SPECIFICALLY saying so in words. They’re just doing a little ‘creative’ layout of titles and pictures.

  1. 30515843_10157575260495620_6308674812896312709_n.jpg

    In case you can’t open this it is a picture of the world with this: The Only Thing Flat Earthers Fear … Is Sphere itself.

  2. An excellent book I highly recommend regarding flat earth is:

    https://books.google.com/books/about/Inventing_the_Flat_Earth.html?id=6roqAAAAYAAJ

    After I read this book, I had to take a step back and consider the implications of the what really drives people to believe the earth is flat. It is not just believing the earth is flat. There is something already existing within a person’s character that causes him/her to be taken in by such delusions, as was rather nicely unpacked by John.

    Great work, Mr. Little. You gave words to what I had been mulling over in my head, trying to make sense of it all. We forgive, we learn, we move on.

  3. “If you believe ANY of those, YOU suffer from a Flat Earth Mentality.”

    YES! I’m normal! Would someone please explain that to my wife?

  4. Hi John,
    oh my, what can I say, flat earth is a universal, and sad, parable of what happens to human minds which willingly separated themselves from God… There’s nothing you can do, no chance to find any type of mutual understanding – which btw. would be bizarre, and stupid, like that (title, in Polish, is: ‘why don’t we compromise’):

    (google translation is rough, judging with my Russian, but you can see the picture).
    The Russians killed in February were members of so-called Wagner Group, something similar to Blackwater (look at their ‘allies’ btw, even Cush is here):

    If the above info about Russian response in east Ghouta is even approximately accurate, we already have body bags on both sides, and they WILL respond to each other – archduke Ferdinand is already dead. The dynamics of situation is scary, because the only safe scenarios must assume that someone steps back. Russia will not, believe me. America – judge for yourself (apologies for being sarcastic). Welcome to Ezekiel 38, which will be the final product of all of this.

  5. I love David Wood. I love the cat video, and in it he illustrates the appalling lack of critical thinking by a scary majority of people.

    http://www.criticalthinking.org

    The above link is for the Foundation for Critical Thinking, mostly aimed at educators; it offers courses and books on critical thinking, etc. Critical thinking is a skill that can and should be taught, and the foundation is attempting to promote that; but … alas. The Moron section says it all. And the Dunning-Kruger effect. I have long been fascinated with logic and thinking processes, and how to acquire understanding that is accurate. And as a basically logical person, I have been mystified since childhood at the illogical emotional thinking so many people do. It really baffles me. I have at least two such people in my family, and you can’t reason with them. To them, a feeling is as valid as a fact. They really don’t seem to understand the difference. I really suspect some of it has to do with innate wiring, but as for the rest, I wish critical thinking and logic were required courses at the high school level. I wish the snowflake generation were shown diagrams of the facts we know dwarfed by all the facts we do not know, and how this has to be taken into account.

    There has also been an explosion in knowledge – “Knowledge shall increase, and many shall run to and fro.” No kidding. And when education is unable to cover all the bases, you get basic stuff being forgotten and the thing goes full circle and you start suffering the effects of forgetting those things. Like, milk originally sold in glass bottles, then when it was discovered that some B vitamins are destroyed by light they switched to cardboard. Now, the more expensive organic dairies are selling in clear (not even brown) glass bottles because it seems “healthier”. Recycling is admirable, but they should be using dark glass. Similarly, research has shown that over 93% of bottled water is contaminated; yet people buy and drink it in huge quantities because they THINK it is better. It really isn’t. Most of it is just filtered tap water. You could put a filter on your own sink and get the same thing much cheaper, and without the feminizing chemicals leaching into it from the plastic bottle. Case in point, one of my irrational-thinking friends drinks bottled water; I asked her why; she said to avoid what is in tap water. I asked, what is in her tap water that she wants to avoid? She said, “I don’t know!” and she was completely serious. She just unquestioningly swallows the marketing hype with no effort to see if it’s really true, and apparently no awareness that people will tell you all kinds of bogus stuff just to get your money. And, since so many people do this, they are missing the fluoride and now there is much more tooth decay. I grew up on fluoridated water and it did me nothing but good. Many of my friends who grew up in the same area did not even see a dentist til they were about 30 and even then, had no cavities. (if we are still here when TSHTF, those of us who were lucky enough to have fluoridated water will thank God for that fact. Those who didn’t are likely to suffer excruciating untreated dental pain where the only solution is a pair of pliers and 6 people holding you down.) Dentists actually had to shift their focus to cosmetic dentistry to make a living because fluoridation cut down on tooth decay so much. Also, I have seen a trend in health food stores of touting “non-iodized salt”. They have apparently forgotten that a hundred or more years ago, goiters were rampant except on the seacoasts where people regularly ate ocean fish. That’s from a lack of iodine, so they started putting iodine in salt. I see young people with the beginnings of a goiter from time to time, and they don’t even know it. People in this country have benefited so much from just the basic knowledge of nutrition and hygiene that has been implemented, but because they are so ignorant of it, they are tossing these protections away.

    And, at one point there was this big “self-esteem” thing going in in terms of raising children but I haven’t heard much about it lately. The big objection, which some voiced to no avail, is that building self esteem based on nothing at all, just the belief that one is competent, etc, is not a good thing. Perhaps this contributes to all the Dunning-Kruger idiots out there. And the snowflakes. The proper way to build self esteem in a child is to encourage them to develop a skill, an interest, something they truly love and in the process, learning what reasonable standards are and the effort it takes to achieve them. And when that is accomplished, let them experience the reward of justifiable pride in a job well done. They will learn not only healthy self esteem but a connection to reality – things don’t turn out well just by having good feelings about them. You have to do something, you have to problem solve, and that takes a connection to reality and the ability to test reality. I see an appalling lack of this in the software debacles I have witnessed – how could anyone think you can just put something into production without testing it? How snowflake.

    Enough ranting for now. But I’ll be back.

  6. Research Flat Earth. The world lies about evolution, climate change, etc.. So, we are on a ball falling thru the Galaxy. Traveling around the Sun at 666,000 mph, while our solar system travels around the Milky Way, which is moving thru the universe. All the controlled by the magical gravity. Stars are also moving, but are in the same tracks in the sky every night.
    All can be explained by density, buoyancy, and electro magnetic properties of our plane.
    The moon’s gravity is strong enough to move our oceans, (think of the total weight) while not impacting our ability to move. The earth’s gravitational effect on the moon keeps it in perfect, instead of drawing it into the earth.
    Science says your ancestor was a rock or a monkey, and to drink your fluoride for your “teeth”. It’s ok to question that, but the earth is not debatable.
    Research photography distance records, and use a curvature table.
    Use a Nikkon P900 camera and watch ships go out to sea.
    Do your own research. Go to Rob Skiba’s testing the globe website. Research NASA lies, Operation Fishbowl, Operation Dominic… Jack Parsons ties to Satanic worship… It’s endless… In the endtimes we will be given to a grand delusion. Lies the whole world will believe… Never be afraid to question anything.. Pray to God for the truth,,, We all have felt the same way, that flat earth is crazy. But research it..
    We do not know the exact shape of our “plane”. But we are beginning to realize that we are being lied to, so as to hide the truth of our creator. Please search for the truth.

    Yours in Christ,

    A fellow truth seeker

    • Hi Michael Adamson,

      If you were a fellow ‘truth seeker’, then you would answer the evidence that I brought forth.

      Do you refuse to look at what I have said?

      What others have said?

      Do not expect us to pay attention to what you say, if you refuse to address the absolute proof that we bring forward.

      If you will not do that, then you demonstrate the FACT that you are self-deceived. And, none of us have time for those who choose self-deception over the truth.

      So, answer what I said, Michael. Or go away.

      Yours in Christ,

  7. Catching up on Martin Armstrong’s public blog. He Who Is Never Wrong has been saying some startlingly direct things, to wit:

    “This is clearly leading to a confrontation for the West desperately needs a war to divert attention from the failure of social program promises.”

    “We are on the path to war and every opportunity to further that goal is clearly being taken by the USA, UK, and the EU.”

    And the latest entry: https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/world-news/war/trump-lays-the-seeds-to-world-war-iii/

    His models are saying this will reach some kind of culmination in November 2018.

    • Hi DRG,

      That is a very unsettling comment – which means that the link goes in, Lord willing.

      If we are set to escalate from here, into November 2018… we could have Gog and Magog in the summer of 2019.

      I am not looking forward to that.

      Thank you, DRG. Excellent point. Excellent comment. Excellent link.

  8. And, here I am again. A must-watch video, about 45 minutes, in which Amir Tsarfati gives a 4/14/2018 update on the events in Syria, etc. His perspective is not one I’ve heard from others, and as an Israeli and in particular a former commander in the Israeli Army, he is well worth listening to.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybZhvL-Lkms

    • Hi DRG,

      I like Amir. He’s a good guy and an excellent representative of the best kinds of Israelis. Of course, he’s a Christian, so that’s natural.

      He was the military governor of Jericho, during his military service. That means that he either made Colonel or Lieutenant Colonel, before leaving the IDF. So, he would have sources of information that most Israelis don’t have.

      I will listen to/watch that video with interest.

      Thank you DRG. Three excellent comments in a row!

      Yours in Christ,

  9. Now that the missiles are flying, and more bombs falling, will we really get to stop talking about insanity?? Great post and topic. I think liberal and progressive were like seeds in the deception. Look how far we’be come. That topic puts new light on self examination with dunning and Krueger.

  10. Hi there!

    Woke up yesterday with this song running through my head and am thinking we could all use a listen and a read of the lyrics:

    “Eye of the Storm” by Ryan Stevenson: https://youtu.be/-sx8wTnnfSc

    “When the solid ground is falling out
    From underneath my feet
    Between the black skies and my red eyes
    I can barely see
    When I realize I’ve been let down by my friends and my family
    I can hear the rain reminding me

    In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
    In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
    You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
    Your love surrounds, me in the eye of the storm

    When my hopes and dreams are far from me
    And I’m running out of faith
    I see the future I pictured slowly fade away
    And when the tears of pain and heartache are pouring down my face
    I find my peace in Jesus’ name

    In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
    In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
    You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
    Your love surrounds me, in the eye of the storm

    When they let me go and I just don’t know
    How I’m gonna make ends meet
    I did my best
    Now I’m scared to death
    That we might lose everything

    And when a sickness takes my child away
    And there’s nothing I can do
    My only hope is to trust You
    I trust You LORD

    In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
    In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
    You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
    Your love surrounds me, in the eye of the storm

    In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
    In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
    You alone are the anchor when my sails are torn
    Your love surrounds me in the eye of the storm”

  11. And, again. This is an amazing testimony –

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36-py4lJ-WA

    – about a Hebrew of Hebrews who converted to Christ. If you can get past the money pitch at the beginning from the hostess of the website. But it is also deeply disturbing to me. I am ….. I almost want to say I was ….. not an anti-semite. I certainly dismiss all that nonsense about the Protocols and the Rothschilds, etc. But I was really shocked to hear how viciously evil this poor man’s family was to him when he risked and lost everything just to help save their souls. I just can’t fathom it. And this vitriol was even more viciously directed at Our Saviour. I used to have trouble understanding how God could send any of His chosen people to hell. I no longer have that problem. This is just mind boggling to me. I don’t even know what to say, except that now I am baffled by your continued insistence that the Israelis are such warm, loving, wonderful people!!!!!????!?!?!?!

    • Forgot to add ……. his very Orthodox family didn’t seem to have a problem with the fact that he married a Buddhist woman and she prayed to her statue of Buddha 5 times a day in the living room. That was fine, which surprises me. I hear so many stories of nominal Christians who want to marry a Jew and the family requires them to convert to Judaism first. My own cousin did that. On second thought, it should not surprise me. A Buddhist does not need to convert. But, God forbid, a real Christian!!!! That is unbearable and not to be tolerated. At his first mention of Jesus the fangs and claws came out and they viciously tore him to pieces.

      • And, I continue to be boggled and baffled and trying to process this. The stench of the enemy is very evident here, in the specific hatred of anything pointing to Jesus. Of course the enemy is not rattled by the presence of a demon-idol-worshiping Buddhist. That person is already where he wants them, so they can just stay there. But allowing the presence or the entry of a true Christian into the enclave of Jews, invites his full fury. It gives me a new understanding of that verse in Revelation, where mention is made of those who say they are Jews, and are not, but are of the synagogue of satan. And the times Jesus told the Jews listening to him that their true father was satan. I used to think these were harsh words, perhaps hyperbole, but no longer. I should have known Jesus knew what He was talking about. And how much it must have grieved him to know this, how He wept over Jerusalem. How deeply it must grieve Him to be so despised by the people group He chose and carefully nurtured out of all the peoples of the earth, through and for whom He worked His greatest miracles; to whom He gave His word and Holy Spirit, to point toward Him and give so many prophecies about His visitation; I can’t get my brain around how it is even possible for them, steeped in the Old Testament, to be so viciously opposed to connecting the name of the historical Jesus to all the messianic prophecies in the OT. I have heard modern rabbis say the Messiah will bring peace on earth, and that obviously has not happened, so the Messiah has not yet come. So how is it they ignore the stuff in Isaiah and Daniel about the man of sorrows, the 70 weeks and being cut off, etc? I have a new understanding about how Daniel, who was not allowed to record all he was shown, could be overcome with grief and faint at what he saw in the future of his people. I keep using the word vicious in these comments. Vicious is the word for the tone of his family’s opposition, the rest of the Sanhedrin, and his employer. Vicious hatred and opposition, fang-baring snarling vicious – toward the only thing in the universe standing between themselves and eternal torment. I just cannot understand it. I do not see it to this extent in American Jews that I know. I have several good friends that are Jewish, and in some cases there is a member of their family that has become Christian. The ones I know have not expelled these members from the family; but they do roll their eyes at any mention of Jesus. This is the work of the enemy, yes, but all he can do is tempt and deceive and play upon existing weaknesses; HOW is it even possible that he can gain such inroads in the most orthodox Jews, who know the OT better than anyone else? Whose ancestors were the ones for whom God parted the Red Sea and all the other miracles? Who make it their regular practice to remember and teach their children about these miracles????

        • Hi DRG,

          I know that this boggles the mind, but everyone who does not accept Jesus is a captive of Satan. Everyone.

          Furthermore, it is my experience that those who are the most hostile, are the ones who are closest to accepting Jesus.

          In terms of the Gospel, the opposite of love is not hatred. The opposite of love is indifference. At least, with hatred, you have someone who is engaged. I would much rather have someone express hatred than complete indifference.

          I understand your outrage, but I have seen the same kind of situation among those of other religions – even here in Taiwan.

          One other aspect that you might need to pay attention to:

          Satan hates the Jews.

          A careful look at history demonstrates this.

          And again, I need to point out that there is prophecy upon prophecy about the return of the Jews to God. That WILL HAPPEN, and we must never be against that. EVER.

          God has told us, repeatedly, that He will return the Jews to Himself. And, He said that He would do this during The Last Days. Well, that’s now. And, The Jews ARE returning to God, through Christ. And, this phenomenon is accelerating.

          I hope that helps, DRG.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

    • Hi DRG,

      I will watch the video, but I’m betting that your understanding of Judaism is extremely limited. In fact, there would have been very little chance for you to be educated about Judaism, unless you were dumped into the middle of it. My own journey towards a better understanding of Judaism has been… eye-opening.

      Please remember that every religion believes that all other religions are wrong. And, each of those religions has certain traditions that they follow, when one of their own strays from ‘the faith’. The Muslims murder their apostates. Jews hold a funeral. Catholics also murder their apostates – when they can. Taiwanese traditional religion also persecutes those that ‘fall away’. And, while I don’t know what the Hindus do, I suspect that they do SOMETHING to try and pressure those who leave, to come back to ‘the fold’.

      Remember also that Judaism is pagan. Completely, utterly pagan.

      You have NEVER heard me praise Judaism as a whole. Judaism is NOT the cousin of Christianity. God does not have nephews. And, I always fear for the spiritual future of those who try to adopt the pagan practices of Judaism.

      Those who follow Judaism are going to Hell. And, Judaism makes it very clear that they reject Christ. VERY CLEAR. And, they teach their children that if they accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, their soul will be stolen and destroyed.

      So, you can imagine the kind of fear and hatred of Christians that this would evoke.

      Actually, I’m surprised that the Jews engage in so little violence towards Christians. If I were a follower of Judaism, I’d want to beat up every Christian that I met. For them to not do this, is a tribute to their self-restraint, their desire for peace and the value that they place on life.

      Please remember that animosity towards Christ is the nature of those who are caught in darkness. They can’t help themselves. And, as Christians, we are required to love those who hate us. Some might even say that we are doomed to love our enemies.

      After all, those who are not Christian, are – by definition – our enemies. And sharing the gospel with those who hate us, is the ultimate expression of love.

      I love the Jews – as well as the Arabs – not because they are good people. They aren’t. I love them because God sent His Son to die on the cross for them.

      Now, to your point about Israelis. Israelis are a different breed. Most of them have rejected Judaism in some way – some, more than others. And, I believe that this is God’s way of preparing their hearts for the time when they will receive Christ.

      That day is very close.

      To add one more brick to this wall, let me point out that we should never be against any group or people. I have trouble with this, since there are some groups that are so thoroughly evil… that it’s hard to seek for them to be blessed. So, I understand that this is a difficult principle to follow.

      There’s a lot more to this than what I’ve mentioned here. Maybe I should include a more in-depth discussion in my annual ‘The Truth About Israel’ piece.

      Thank you for the opportunity to make these points, DRG. I hope that I’ve clarified some things for you.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Yeah ….. I agree with all you’ve said, and I have never stopped believing that they are God’s chosen people, although I sometimes wonder why. I also believe the Bible in that someday they will look on Him whom they have pierced, with complete and utter mortification. No wonder they will grieve so intensely at that time. Yes. I pray for Israel and I pray for the salvation of every unsaved person on the face of the earth, and I specifically pray for all Jews that they would recognize their Messiah. I worry about my own Jewish friends and can’t think of anything more to do for them than pray, because they are not open to the message, and only the Holy Spirit can address that. Acceptance is not an intellectual thing, it’s a spiritual thing.

        But the thing that boggles my mind is that – even though everyone who rejects Jesus is a captive of Satan – they of all Satan’s prisoners have had the key to escape for thousands of years. Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus have never had it. Most of them have never seen it. But the Jews have been steeped in it almost their entire existence, as a nation. That’s what amazes me.

        I have watched more videos of that Zev Porat and the ministry he founded; the Lord is doing great work through him; I watched other videos of Messianic Jews witnessing to other Jews, and am greatly encouraged to hear that many are recognizing Christ. And yes, my knowledge of Judaism is extremely limited; I have found it interesting and helpful to see Zev explaining certain things I’d have no background to understand.

  12. Hi John!
    First I would like to address this normality thing:
    I would submit to you that my last name is NORMAL! unfortunately my first name is AB, so guess where that places me? (AB NORMAL)
    I blame “farside” cartoons and Monty Python etc..!

    As to flat earthers, not worth my time since they don’t want to learn. NON of them have ever been to sea or even want to go to sea and figure things out for themselves.

    As to the strikes in Syria, not sure what to think other than at least it isn’t boring!
    I do think that the move to attack Syria is very dangerous because of the presence of Russian assets. Also I am not convinced that Assad launched these chemical attacks. So my mode is still, prepare, pray and stay out of the way!
    Hope this finds you and yours well!

  13. John,

    The pre-trib rapture is all over the Bible if you allow yourself to see it and understand how to rightly divide the scriptures. The Tribulation is for the Jews, and the unsaved, not the saved Christians.

    One verse that comes to mind is Revelation 3:10 , where Jesus revealed that He would keep us *from* that hour of testing, not *through*…big difference, as well as in Revelation 4:1, where the door opens and a voice says ‘come up hither’…then nothing is spoken about the church afterwards. Of course, Jesus is THE door… What would be the purpose of a rapture after the Tribulation ends, when most believers would aready be dead, and with the Lord? ?Jesus also spoke of preparing a place for us, which is similar to the tradition of a Jewish wedding. Would He really want us to go through literal hell before a wedding? I could go on and on. ..

    The main thing I have found is that pre-wrathers believe they are not different than the unsaved Jews and that they will have to endure to the end to be saved…that my friend, is a lie. We ARE saved IF we believe the true Gospel of Paul!! It’s the unsaved who will need to endure because they refused to believe the Gospel in 1 Corintihans 15:1-4.

    Here are two videos that I found that completely changed my mind about the pre-wrath or post -trib rapture from a trained pastor. He has many more on the subject if you choose to reconsider your belief.

    [Links removed by JL]

    I say all this in love, not condmemnation. I do pray you will consider this man’s teachings.

    God bless.

    • Hi Angelyn,

      It is wrong of you to falsely accuse those who believe in a pre-Wrath Rapture. That is a false accusation, and that is a sin.

      As for your misinterpretation of the passages that you refer to, remember that God was speaking to a specific church at a specific time. God was NOT referring to The Great Tribulation. Nor was Jesus referring to a rapture in that verse.

      Furthermore, there is no verse in the Bible that describes a pretribulation rapture. NONE. Your attempt at a reference is without foundation. You are choosing to believe something that isn’t there.

      Show me a verse in the Bible that describes a Pre-Tribulation Rapture.

      However, there ARE verses that describe that ‘the gathering’ will happen AFTER the Great Tribulation.

      2 Thessalonians 2 says that the Antichrist MUST COME BEFORE the ‘rapture’.

      Matthew 24 – THE WORDS OF JESUS! – says that the Tribulation is over, before the Rapture.

      1 Thessalonians 4 says that the Resurrection must happen before the Rapture.

      How can you ignore those verses?

      EVEN THE WORDS OF JESUS!

      You would dare to ignore the words or our Lord and Savior?

      And those are not the only verses that PROVE that the rapture comes after the Tribulation.

      There is more, here:

      http://www.ezekielsfire.com/section-one/a-theory-that-blinds/

      And, you can see in that chapter, that I have truly looked into what the pretribbers believe.

      Angelyn, you suffer from a Flat Earth Mentality. It is time to wake up and look at the truth, and I also do not say this in condemnation.

      Yours in Christ,

  14. This is totally off topic. If you and your readers recall, Belize was one of the countries who voted against Trump’s Jerusalem statement. Belize is very much pro-Palestinian, whereas Guatemala is very much pro-Israel. Guatemala will be moving its embassy to Jerusalem next month.

    It will interesting to see how things will play out for the country in the years going forward:

    https://weather.com/news/news/2018-04-16-japan-minerals-rare-earth-discovery-minamitorishima-island

    I wonder how radioactive that area is – plus I’m hearing the still-leaking Fukushima plant is in increasing danger of becoming worse, and some structure with fresh (not spent) fuel is about to collapse ….. I think it’s in that structure designed by morons, which for some reason has a huge and heavy pool up on stilts.

    • That’s way out there. And, when they say ‘sea floor’, that’s DEEP. That island is merely the tippy top of an underwater mountain. The average depth of the Pacific is 14k feet deep! But, if the need is strong enough… Thanks, DRG. (And yes, those morons…) – JL

  16. Brother John,
    I think the Flat Earth is a mental illness. Like these people that say:
    -God made them the wrong gender. gender- which is a physical characteristic- is actually a construct; sexuality- which is a behavior- you are actually ‘born’ with;
    – you can’t see an object if you don’t know what it is;
    – or, really popular in the Christian community, God does not know angels have sex with humans and produce offspring and this deed that is hidden from the omniscient God threatens his Creation and His plan and causes the flood.
    People also think Trump is Cyrus the Great.

    Beware false prophets.

    • Hi PrepperGal,

      I find myself being a bit upset at the article’s underlying premise, that we are in the MIDDLE of a secular bull market. He is COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS to the terrible predicament that we are in.

      Sorry, but we are not only near the END of a secular bull market, but we are staring into the ABYSS!

      But, I shall try to keep my yelling to a minimum.

      As for the our attempt to find a new place to moor our boat… wellll …we’re still caught in the middle of the river and without a paddle. Our thought is to move out of Taipei and look for a good church that needs a rather over-tall English-speaker. And, right now, the eastern side of the island sounds good.

      We’ll see.

      Thanks for your interest, PrepperGal. I appreciate that a lot. Please be praying for us, to find the right place. It is my greatest concern that we be in the right place to serve God well.

      Yours in Christ,

  17. John, Your Omega Shock Letter is my weekly look forward to. I learned how to circumnavigate around the evil Google, MSM, Outlook etc. attempts to silence you and others. I simply created “Omega” as a frequent site in Safari. Although not as convenient as a direct email, I still have access to your invaluable information at the click of a button! Please feel free to share this with all. If more information is needed fell free to contact me. God bless your dedication to his cause. Dave

  18. I challenge you to watch this and the other parts of this and than tell me how the bible is not a flat earth book.. The bible says

    1 Thessalonians 5:21
    Prove all things; hold fast that which is good

    Albert Einstein said

    “Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance”

    • Hi MagenD,

      Long time no see!

      I was wondering what happened to you, so I hope that this means that you are doing well.

      As for the secret of my ‘dedication’, it is a mixture of outrage, horror, fascination and curiosity – along with a desire to use this mental affliction to educate others about their own ‘flat earth mentality’.

      There’s a little Flat Earther in all of us, and we need to minimize that ‘mentality’ as much as possible – ‘cuz it’s dangerous.

      I glad to hear from you, MagenD!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
