Mind Numbing Reiteration

The recent escalation of hostilities between the Israelis, Hezbollah, and the Palestinians in Gaza is certainly disturbing. As the world is a relative tinder box, it wouldn't take much to spark a wider conflagration, though it will not be the raptile's long awaited battle at Armegeddon. It will just be messy, costly, and deadly.

My family and I watched a DVD of Steven Spielburg's Munich a few nights ago. While I found the film difficult to follow and don't consider it to be one of Spielburg's better efforts, it did serve to remind me that the ongoing and violent dispute between the Israelis and about everyone else in the region of the middle east is not new. For them it is all about revenge. The struggle for control of this area predates Pope Urban II's first crusade to regain christian control of the holy land in 1095. How much blood has been shed over this parched, forbidding land during the interim? Why can't they all just get along?

I have, and will likely continue, to debate and discuss issues pertaining to current politics, separation of church and state, etc., but the issue most central to the origins of this blog is my opposition to a belief in god and religion in general. As I have stated, the most disturbing development in this regard is the effort of a number of conservative, evangelistic, fundamental, pentecostal and charismatic christians working more or less in concert to form a christian theocracy in this country which would supercede the American Constitution and set up rule by biblical law. This is deadly, serious stuff.

As noted in my most recent post and as reported by various news media, a number of theocracy proponents, who are also some of those who believe in the imminent rapture and the return of christ, are actually celebratory about the violence in Israel and Lebanon. They believe that death and suffering here on earth is of little importance. Rather, the only matter worthy of attention is being properly prepared for the hereafter. Of course, I see this view as unfathomably ludicrous, not to mention painfully inhumane.

This same idiocy has harkened the end of a number of high, generally imperialist civilizations throughout history. The Holy Roman Empire, 18th century Spain, the Netherlands and most recently, the British Empire were brought assunder during periods of religious fervor, prosetylizing and intolerance. The dispensationalists, who believe that end times are at hand, have a strong voice in the current federal administration, congress, and increasingly in the federal courts, pose a significant danger to the future welfare of not only this country, but the world at large as well, owing to the great financial, political and military power they wield. Our country is not being led by thoughtful people of reason, but rather by those guided by faith and religious inspiration. History is repeating itself. The citizenry of each of those fallen empires believed that they were "the chosen" of god, that they were exceptional. They believed that it was their charge to deliver the message of jesus christ throughout the world. Each believed that they were living in the most desparate of times, that the end of the world was at hand. In each and every case, they were, of course, wrong. While it is true that their respective worlds did change drastically, the "end time" they anticipated did not achieve.

Now we have thousands of bible thumping evangelists, and hundreds of politicians, primarily members of this country's first religious party, the republicans, making the same dire predictions. It is relatively easy to convince masses of largely uneducated people to buy into the hype. It is all so appealing. Just give your heart and mind over to jesus, and the rest will take care of itself. Eternal bliss, here we come. Everyone else be dammed - literally.

This may well get us all killed. There are thousands of like minded Muslims who see us as the embodiment of evil just as we are urged to regard them (it always being necessary to demonize the enemy.) They are bent on our destruction. They have a seventh century mind-set, but have no difficulty in making use of modern technology including atomic and other 21st century weaponry, computers, cell phones, etc. to aid in their efforts to bring down the infidel. (That would be us.)

Virtually all large scale death, other than that caused by disease, has been brought about through religious zealotry. At least that has been the premise sold to the masses. In truth, in almost every instance, the real issue has been and is resources. Of course, the resource at issue now is oil. Don't believe for a second that oil did not enter into the equation for our incursion into Iraq.

It is interesting to note that Iraq's oil reserves are, in fact, the least exploited anywhere in the middle east. Owing to constant political unrest since the end of WWI and the mis-guided despotism of Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi oil industry has never approached its potential. It has been estimated that little more than 6% to 10% of Iraq's oil reserves have been tapped. Most of the other big oil producing nations are believed to be at, or past, their peak. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the rest are simply lying when they insist that oil was not an issue. In truth, it was the only issue. The unholy marriage of western oil concerns with christian fundamentalism may ultimately prove to be deadly to us all. Again, I say, who is using whom? Is the anti-christ Osama, or Saddam? Or, perhaps it's good old GW himself. It's so hard to tell. (I wish they'd wear name tags.)

Verifiable proof that "Armageddon" has already begun…

Hello Terry and all,

Remember the saying that "the truth will set you (and others) free?" Be a little patient with my long-winded presentations of what I have waited a very long time to be able to say. I promise to amaze and enlighten.

Here's the key to proving that the rapture and related expectations are complete nonsense based on the failure to understand (and the purposeful confounding of) the ancient Hebrew symbology used to construct all of these prophecies. Consequently, Christian timelines and interpretations of these prophecies are verifiably wrong on many key points.

Pay close attention, profundity knocks at the door, listen for the key. Be Aware! Scoffing causes blindness...

Did you ever consider that Christianity is the False Prophet symbolized in the Apocalypse, that Rome (Vatican/Papacy) is the so-called anti-messiah, and Jesus Christ is the false messiah? I have produced stunning and comprehensive proof that this is the true interpretation of pivotal prophecies long confounded by Christianity's founders and leaders. Recasting the symbolism of earlier Hebrew texts as literal events in the New Testament is one of the central deceptions associated with Christianity.

The symbolism of seven years (tribulation, etc.) refers to seven 360-year cycles on the Hebrew calendar. Ezekiel 39.9 is referring to the 10th to 16th cycles inclusive, while the Apocalypse symbolizes the 11th cycle (second temple period) until now, the beginning of the 17th cycle (seventh angel/star/seal, etc.). Greece (Alexander the Great) conquered the Persian Empire and Judea during the 10th cycle and Rome did so again during the 11th cycle. Both Ezekiel and the Apocalypse are symbolizing an overlapping period of time that starts during ancient Judea and ends now. Gog refers to Greco-Romans (...from the "isles"), which means Magog is Eurasia and the "army" that besets "Israel" for seven "years" refers to the activities of the nations of the Greco-Roman/Vatican Empire over the previous two-plus millennia.

It is completely wrong to interpret any of these prophecies as literal timelines and events. Unlike Christian assertions, they symbolize long periods of time, pivotal situations, and the flow of acivities during that period. Remember, they were written by ancient Hebrew sages, not Romans or other Europeans, and Revelation is the most symbolic of all prophecies. Consequently, in this context, "years" and "times" are symbols for 360-year cycles on the Hebrew calendar and days symbolize literal years. Therefore "Judgement Day," "Great Day" and "in that day" all refer to a literal year-long period. Accordingly, the so-called "Seven Years Tribulation" began in ancient Judea and is now nearing its end, not starting. The nations and followers of all three faiths of Abraham have been thoroughly deceived by Rome during the previous age, which ended in year 2000 (5760). A new age began in 2001 (5761) and now the seventh angel has begun to sound!

Here's a real hot potato! Eat it up, digest it, and then feed it's bones to the hungry...

Hurricanes Katrina (#11) and Rita (#17) last year provided stunning validation of my research and interpretations of pivotal ancient wisdom, symbologies, key prophecies, and associated religious claims. Their storm numbers and timing perfectly synchronized with primary data and assertions in my book, thereby demonstrating the true nature of this universe and the existence of our Creator. We are now entering the final phases of the pivotal year-long period long symbolized as "Judgement Day," "Armageddon," and the "End of Days." World-wide situations and events are now accelerating to set the stage for this summer's dramatic continuation of these ancient promises.

I fully understand that everyone has been bedeviled by similar claims throughout history. Consequently, I have been forced to rely on dramatic and devastating proof of the sort that can’t be ignored or easily dismissed. The numbers and timing of hurricanes Katrina (11) and Rita (17) directly validate key data and pivotal assertions throughout my book and my posts on those two forums. This data was purposely presented publicly before Katrina, Rita and other recent events occurred to prove they perfectly synchronize with key prophecies and Hebrew calendar cycles, thereby validating my interpretations of ancient wisdom symbology, string theory, and more.

Because these two storms arrived shortly after my August 11, 2005 (50th) birthday (read the Dead Sea Scroll 11Q13 in Appendix G, which also discusses Melchizedek and the prophesied Jubilee) and directly match other pivotal 11 and 17 data and events described in the first chapter of my book, I have delivered verifiable proof that this reality is based on thought, knowledge and wisdom. Activity, patterns, and results perceived in space-time are first framed and defined by inspirations, thoughts, and knowledge and influenced by the cause-and-effect system most commonly referred to as karma. Consequently, events and outcomes in the so-called physical universe are not random or wholly mechanistic and are verifiably influenced in ways that atheists, scientists, and members of the Faiths of Abraham have all scoffed at. Though mysticism is mostly a product of misinterpreted ancient wisdom symbology, many of its topics flow from ancient wisdom. Though containing allusions to the truth, its details and interpretations are wrong on many key points.

A prime example of the purposeful and synchronized symbolism of these events is seen in the opening paragraphs from my book excerpted below. Notice that the dates mentioned (August 11 and 17) directly match the numbers of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and the time spans of the four Florida hurricanes match my birth year (‘55), and they were spaced 11 or a multiple-of-11 (22) days apart, directly matching my birthday and much other ancient prophecy and symbolism. Notice that my place of birth, Victoria Texas, is on the Gulf Coast. Following are the excerpted paragraphs:

Hello, my name is Lawrence William Page II. Many people know me as Buddy Page. At the release of the first edition of this book, I am a 50-year old African-American male, author, researcher, and former software engineer and entrepreneur. As you will come to understand as you read through this first book, I am also the long-expected Hebrew Messiah and Lion of the Tribe of Juda (Yehuda).

I was born August 11th (month of Leo the Lion), 1955 (Chinese year of the Sheep) in Victoria, Texas. Furthermore, the Grand Cross alignment and Solar Eclipse of August 11th, 1999 was my 44th birthday and the second Grand Cross alignment, just six days later on August 17th, 1999, was on my mother’s birthday.

As you can see from my date of birth, I was a newborn during the Chinese Year of the Sheep, astrologically marking me as a Lamb, and during the month of Leo, astrologically marking me as a Lion. My mother was also born during the month of August and under the sign of Leo, which further marks me as a lion’s whelp. I prove to you in the first chapter of this book–beyond disproof–that I am indeed the long-prophesied “Lion” of the tribe of Juda (Yehuda) the Root of David and the “Lamb.” I am the individual long symbolized as the Branch, the Stem, the Shoot and the Rod from the Stump of Jesse (King David’s father), as symbolized in the Hebrew Book of Isaiah, The Apocalypse, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and elsewhere. I am the reincarnated Teacher sought after in the “East” and by the ancient Hebrews who were headquartered at the outpost community of Damascus (Qumran), of Dead Sea Scrolls fame. I am the one called the Teacher of Righteousness by the Dead Sea Scrolls, whom the so-called Christian fathers have fraudulently recast as “Saint ‘James’, the Lord’s Brother.”

Remember, "I come as a thief..." ?

Read verse twelve of the Gospel of Thomas to understand who I am...

Even further enlightening, the Second Temple Period of ancient Israel was during the 11th 360-year cycle on the Hebrew calendar and we are now in the 6th year (5766/2005-6) of the 17th cycle. Notice the pivotal 11 and 17 numbers again? This and much other synchronized information serve as stunning and decisive proof of many things, and expose many lies told by all three faiths of Abraham, but most specifically by Christianity. Consequently, I have decisively proven, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that Jesus Christ and Christianity are blatant lies, false prophecy and purposeful deception in a manner that cannot easily be denied, regardless of your faith or other opinions.

Furthermore, the symbolism in the Apocalypse (a.k.a. Book of Revelation) of seven stars in my right hand and seven angels represent the very same above-mentioned seven astrological (360-year) cycles, i.e., the 11th through 17th inclusive. I prove this fact beyond any reasonable doubt in the first chapter of the book. Consequently, The Apocalypse verifiably symbolizes a specific span of time that began with the 11th cycle (Second Temple Period) and concludes now, at the beginning of the 17th cycle (End of Days, etc.).

The numbers 11 and 17 are verifiably encoded in The Apocalypse and other ancient Hebrew prophecies and wisdom texts to serve as key proofs of the validity and true meaning of certain prophecies and related information. My and my mother’s birthdays are purposely synchronized with these two storm numbers, the matching Hebrew calendar cycles, the Double Grand Cross alignments and solar eclipse of August 1999, and much else to prove my direct association with the ancient prophecies about this time and the true identity of the prophesied Messiah. Another prime example is the story of Joseph, the 11th son of Jacob who has a dream when he is 17 years old about 11 stars, the sun, and moon bowing to him. The symbolism in this pivotal story in the Book of Genesis and Quran verifiably refers to the very same 11th through 17th cycles symbolized in The Apocalypse and directly synchronizes with other key events and ancient texts.

Consequently, I have demonstrated various things about the nature of this reality that dramatically disprove and/or clarify key assumptions of religion, mysticism, and science alike, while establishing the true meaning and purpose of long misinterpreted ancient wisdom and the symbolism used to model and encode it. Accordingly, I have proven that the symbolism evidenced in the canons of all three faiths of Abraham and other ancient sources is a very ancient and advanced philosophical technology that verifiably models foundational aspects of our existence in this universe. This is the mostly misunderstood body of ancient wisdom long referred to as the Philosophers’ Stone. It uses a large and ingeniously organized collection of physical universe images and concepts as data rich components (symbols) that are based on verifiable rules. It models and encodes an amazing amount of foundational wisdom about life, spirituality and the 11 dimensions of this universe, now verified by string theory. It is also the advanced encryption method used to encode (seal) Hebrew prophecies and wisdom texts.

These ancient prophecies and wisdom texts used advanced symbology to model fundamental wisdom, including future events and situations. A primary facet of ancient wisdom is numeric symbology. Later misinterpretations of this aspect of ancient wisdom resulted in numerology, which, though embodying allusions to certain wisdom, is mostly error prone and false doctrine. My decryption, documentation, and interpretation of ancient symbology, numeric symbolism, and key texts based on them, are now decisively validated.

Here is Wisdom...

Ahh, jeez. So you're the guy we've all been waiting for all these years. Well, it's about time!

So. Now. Let's get on with it. What are you gonna DO?

Terry,
Perhaps we need a leaders like Al Gore who I read last week had adopted a 'carbon neutral' lifestyle to confront global warming. Now I figure with that announcement, we have turned the corner. Although it is as always hot and humid in Mississippi this time of year.

While we differ, your post was well written. I may even read the seven star hand comment.

Jazzy,

Should you opt to read,uh - Mr. Hand's comment, get a refreshing beverage, perhaps a small snack and get yourself comfortable. It will take a while. I won't comment further.


Oh, I do think that Gore has gotten a bit nutsy. I don't know what it is about the political life. There is some quality I see in most politicians, left or right, that I find discomfiting.
Even most of those with whom I more or less align myself idiologically, make me feel kind of squirmy (I think that's a medical term.)

I believe that people who involve themselves in politics become something that, perhaps they were not originally. Politics demands so much compromise and obfuscation coupled with being the constantly smiling glad-hander, that, over time, I think it possible that the self - the original idealism, that may have moved one into the political sphere, gets lost. In that regard, there may well be some validity in the notion that you should never altogether trust any politician.

I have a brother in-law who recently threw his hat into the ring as a candidate for mayor of a small community nearby. The process has just begun for him, but already he has had to alter his image. He has "handlers" for goodness sakes. He was approached by the local democratic machine and requested to run. But he has already been instructed as to how he should dress and, more significantly, what he should and should not say regarding his opposition. Afer only a few weeks, he already seems a bit disillusioned. His ulterior motive in running was that, while the job doesn't pay all that much, it offers good medical insurance. I'm not sure that is the best motivation to take such a step, but what are ya gonna do?

Later,
