Prophecy in the News

Prophecy in the News was established in 1979 in Oklahoma City, OK, for the purpose of providing the Christian community with the tools needed to study this most obscure of all the methods of interpretation. The Bible contains the story of not only where we came from, but where we are going as well. The most recent article on their website is Goddess Worship: Return of the High Places by Gary Stearman:

Where are these crop circles coming from? Are they merely hoaxes, or the work of alien creatures? Why do they appear so close to ancient Druid "high places," such as Stonehenge or Silbury Hill in England? Gary Stearman reviews the idolatrous worship of the Babylonian gods on top of such "high places" in the Bible, and links them to the modern phenomenon of crop circles.

In it we learn that aliens and demons are aspects of the same thing (but regular Prattle readers knew that anyway), and that modern paganism is allowing the dark world to reassert itself. We are taken on a journey through most of the world and some really incomprehensible bits of the Bible. We learn of the evils of the Catholic Church, and that the artsy "Druids" behind the Eisteddford are really neopagan - the new Archbishop of Canterbury apparently ordained a gay priest, and this is relevant - and the neopagans practise exactly the same rites as used in ancient Babylon.

God does nothing

God ignored the prayers of members of a Tennessee Christian church and did not raise 15-year old Jessica Crank from the dead. At her funeral service, New Life Ministries leader Ariel Ben Sherman asked some church members, including the girl's mother, to pray for her ressurection. But God clearly thought it a Bad Idea and did nothing. Instead, Sherman and the girl's mother face charges of child abuse and neglect. Crank was taken to a clinic when a basketball-size growth appeared on her shoulder and workers there urged her mother to seek proper medical treatment. This apparently did not happen and the girl subsequently died of a rare bone cancer. Religous group tries to raise girl from the dead - Associated Press (via Holy Weblog), September 19th 2002.

Mexican 'witch' murders

Four people have been killed, and five wounded, by gunmen who burst into a house of a man accused of witchcraft. The native Mexican village of San Juan Chamula in the state of Chiapas has seen recurring religious violence, with attacks by the dominant Catholic community of converts to Protestant forms of Christianity.

Several other accused witches have been murdered in Chiapas during the last decade. In 1996, a mob beat and hanged a man it accused of drawing his victims' souls into bottles and hiding them in a cave. As many as 12 other men were hacked to death with machetes in Chiapas in the 1990s, reportedly as punishment for practicing witchcraft.
While faith-healing and pre-Hispanic rituals are common in Chiapas, many of the state's largely Indian residents also have a strong belief in, and fear of, reputed practitioners of black magic who allegedly provoke illness or death among their neighbors.

San Cristobal Bishop Felipe Arizmendi condemned the attacks, warning people against taking the law into their own hands. Witch hunters kill 4, wound 5 - Associated Press (via the Tucson Citizen), September 17th 2002.

Religious murderer detained

A judge has ordered Nabil Ouldeddine, a Muslim man who stabbed an orthodox Jew 20 times to be detained in hospital without limit of time. The attack on Mayer David Myers happened on the top deck of a London bus in October 2000 and his injuries included a severed artery.

The court was told that Ouldeddine was a one-legged high jumper who came to Britain in 1998 for the Paralympics in Birmingham. After his arrest, Ouldeddine had told officers: Israel are the murderers. They kill women and children, so I stabbed him.

He told psychiatrists that his arm had been guided by a woman called Jennifer and he heard voices in his head. Muslim who stabbed Jew to be detained in hospital - The Guardian, September 19th 2002.

Grammar checker needed

The Anti-Child Porn Organization, despite the interestingly-placed hyphen, is an organization, comprised of volunteers from all around the world, whose mission is to stop the sexual exploitation of the world's children. So far, so good, and even the invitation to tell them about child porn you find online doesn't indicate anything particularly interesting. But, Windows-using youngsters beware! ACPO publishes Reveal which will tell your parents all about all the dodgy stuff on your computer. Sneakily hidden away where your offspring will never find it, in C:\Programs\Reveal,

Reveal works by searching all files found and comparing each word inside a file against special dictionaries of words commonly used by pedophiles, child pornographers, cultists, occultists, drug pushers and purveyors of hate and violence, It also searches for images, video, and audio files and provides a quick and easy means for you to review these files for content which may be objectionable.

BobCat, of the New York Metropolitan Phreakers and Hackers Society downloaded a copy and ran it. It got very very upset about Netscape's documentation for some reason, but the dictionary it uses was about as well hidden as the program itself. The drug section includes the words BEER and WHISKEY (but not WHISKY, so Scots are obviously not dodgy). The Cult and Occult dictionaries include CROW, EGYPTIAN, MYTH and BONE, but also ALLAH, JUDEO, PAGAN, ATHEIST, DRUID and DHARMA. Two words need adding to the Hate dictionary - ACPO and REVEAL.

Is your neighbour secretly black?

How to recognize Indo-Mongol-Satanoids is

intended as a public service to aid people in recognizing the forms that Satan most exists in at this time.

And from the links on the home page, it would appear to be the usual racist shite, exposing famous people who happen to have full lips as being secretly black, which apparently is a Bad Thing. But try entering the site at a different page, say The 1968 Movie "2001: A Space Odyssey" May Have Been a Prediction about the Events of September 11, 2001, And It May Have Cost the Movie Director, Stanley Kubrick, His Life , and it become much less tedious.

The movie "2001: A Space Odyssey" is widely regarded as a puzzle, or a secret code, containing themes that are rumored to come from various secret societies. This author believes that the 1968 movie "2001" was intended as a prediction of the events that would occur in the real year 2001, most especially the destruction of the World Trade Center towers in New York City on September 11.

Apparently Kubrick died 666 days before the start of 2001, and the numbers 11 and 33 are incredibly significant in the life of Arthur C. Clarke. Eleven has something to do with moon orbits as well and:

The number 33 is a major witchcraft number. It is rumored that David Koresh, Timothy McVeigh, and Jesus of Nazareth were all killed at the age of 33 by self-styled governmental authorities. The number 33 can be decoded from the movie "2001" because the movie was first shown in 1968, which is 33 years before the year 2001.

Below a series of charts demonstrating all this, there are links to many, many pages by the same author going into incredible detail on the matter.
