What I’m watching right now to further my research.
I can’t add anything all that useful right now, except my other lines of research are converging on several topics discussed by Heiser. In summary, Heiser is a Biblical scholar that goes back to the Hebrew text and corrects or focuses on the correct interpretation (not just translation) of the text as it applies to Biblical theology and our own times. If you were told or believe the Bible was mistranslated or that the New or Old Testament has been changed by modern or Greek translators, this will be a useful source.
He also place some slight emphasis on challenging contemporary Church institutions aka organized religion. If you believe there is more to the story of the Bible and God’s relationship to humans than what you were told, he draws in people like that. If you believe that the various churches and fragments of Christendom, has fallen or decayed in the Gospel, Heiser also touches somewhat on that.
Basically, in summary:
Mark William Hofmann (born December 7, 1954) is an American counterfeiter, forger and convicted murderer. Widely regarded as one of the most accomplished forgers in history, Hofmann is especially noted for his creation of documents related to the history of the Latter Day Saint movement. When Hofmann’s schemes began to unravel, he constructed bombs to murder two people in Salt Lake City, Utah. He has been serving a life sentence at the Utah State Prison in Draper since 1988.
The reply from the Latter Day Saints organization is thus:
Despite the Church’s publication of a complete list of its acquisitions from Hofmann, the allegations of suppression continued. For example, an 11 February 1987 New York Times feature states:
“According to investigators, the church leaders purchased from Mr. Hofmann and then hid in a vault a number of 19th-century letters and other documents that cast doubt on the church’s official version of its history.”
This kind of character assassination attributed to anonymous “investigators” has been all too common throughout the media coverage of this whole event. One wonders why the New York Times would not mention in its long article that almost a year earlier the Church had published a detailed list of its Hofmann acquisitions? Is the Times’ motto still “All the news that’s fit to print,” or has it become “All the news that fits a particular perspective”?
Also conveniently omitted from mention in most of the repetitious media recitals of the Church’s “suppression” of documents is the fact that the most prominent Hofmann documents used to attack the origins of the Church—including Martin Harris’ so-called Salamander letter, Joseph Smith’s treasure-hunting letter to Josiah Stowel, and the Joseph Smith III blessing—were all made public by the Church many months before the bombings triggered intense public interest in this subject. We should also remember the Church’s repeated cautions about the authenticity of these documents. For example, President Gordon B. Hinckley said this about the Martin Harris letter:
“No one, of course, can be certain that Martin Harris wrote the document. However, at this point we accept the judgment of the examiner that there is no indication that it is a forgery. This does not preclude the possibility that it may have been forged at a time when the Church had many enemies.” (News Release, 28 Apr. 1985.)
Another document that has been headlined in these charges of suppression is the so-called Oliver Cowdery History. This mythical manuscript has been the subject of hundreds of column inches of newspaper speculation and innuendo because an anonymous source claimed to have seen it in the Church’s possession. The so-called “deep throat” source also claimed that the manuscript’s contents were embarrassing to the Church—specifically, that it was Alvin Smith, not Joseph, who found the golden plates. This was the basis for the critics’ reasoning that the Church had an Oliver Cowdery History and was suppressing it.
In a few minutes I will describe the conclusion of this particular allegation of suppression. Suffice it to say now that as far as we were able to determine in the months that followed, the so-called Oliver Cowdery History was a figment of someone’s fertile imagination. Mark Hofmann has now admitted that he was the one who invented the story. Hofmann’s claim that the Church possessed a damaging document acquired a life of its own because too many unsophisticated persons were quick to repeat and embellish sensational rumors hurtful to the Church, and too many newspapers and television stations were eager to trumpet the unauthenticated claims of an anonymous informant.
These are merely two excerpts out of the total sum of my research on this topic, which I found out via correlative processes unique to my methodology. It’s no different than what many researchers of Islamic Jihad have done concerning the European Dark Age, African slavery, and Islamic piracy links. Gather data, connect the dots, then stand amazed that even though the world rejects it, it becomes true and accurate as time goes on. Almost like growing a herb.
In other words, vis a vis the NYTimes and New York culture, the history doesn’t so much repeat itself as it rhymes. And it also repeats itself.
As for my view, I think humans are easy to con and deceive, even more so for self proclaimed Saints of Christianity, who are not noted for being capable of out thinking or out predicting murderers or con artists. That is very different from defeating an entity like God or a 4th+ dimensional entity which sees time the way we see crossing the street. The existence of evil I have more than found enough evidence for. The existence of its opposing element, thus becomes more concrete over time, not less. I see the calling cards of the war between good and evil all the time around me, in the human world. Hoffman is a perfect example of the inverted Paul to Saul conversion, or perhaps Hoffman was always sociopathic in that nature, although not all sociopaths are evil. Being given excellent abilities and then choosing to use those abilities for evil and Lucifer’s gain in the world, is a natural thing to expect as a byproduct of human free will, for so long as that exists, the opposite must also exist.
Let those who cannot tell truth from fiction, ask of God what is the truth, and beware of the deceptions of the opposing force/faction. That is, of course, if people believe or can prove that a personal God even exists. Higher powers almost certainly exist, even if atheists merely think of them as alien Gaia lovers. Trust not in human capabilities, for demonic or divine inspirations are always superior to human capabilities. Nor do “experts” know what they are talking about, when it comes to true genius, those who are gifted with capabilities exceeding average human expectations. That, for America’s Civil War 2, will be even more important as we proceed along this finely crafted line of fate.
[Reproduction of my reply to Neo’s blog post here. While not an attempt to unify theories and laws, it is pretty close to an ominibus of various concepts under my vision.]
It’s a minor leap from quantum computing to silicon computing. Although it looks large from an engineering stand point.
Physics, specifically quantum mechanics, and consciousness is linked by Schroedinger’s Cat type mechanics.
As for the human brain being too small, computer chips are the same size now as before, but they process faster and better due to better architecture, smaller nanometer construction, and better parallel processing. The brain is only half of what humans use to process information. Mastering the tool, isn’t something everyone can do, even when given the manual.
The difference between someone using one language to process a theoretical concept and someone using two languages in parallax and parallel to process the same theoretical concept, is much the same as the difference between a Pentium II chip and a latter generation quad core.
Silicon hardware has a heating issue. Biological wetware has an oxygen and blood toxin issue. Since most people aren’t even extracting the maximum oxygen from the air their lungs can draw out, there’s no way they can have their brains run even at 80% of natural capacity. The human body has balancing and safety measures, which includes not allowing muscles to constrict past 80% of their max force, absent adrenaline or other conditions. Often times the human brain is just set on “power save”, and that’s how most people go through their lives, after childhood. But again, the brain is merely half of the human processing power. The other half is in the second brain.
A lot of this connects to religions and atheism. Atheism cannot be based on faith, because it is supposed to use conscious rationalism to figure things out, using proof or some kind of concrete basis. But quantum mechanics and faith itself, are not concrete or even demonstrable. Much like the electromagnetic field, it is invisible, except for the effects.
As for God, it’s not hard to conceive of higher or lower dimensions in which entities exist that are not the same as biological humanoids or biological life on planets. Even human science fiction has figured this one out, for entertainment purposes.
The crucial difference is whether divine revelation is real, that a divine entity wants to have a person relationship, contract, or such with a human tribe, and if the recorded thoughts and feelings transmitted through corrupted (post Babel) language is accurate or not.
This separates people who are Deists or Agnostics, from people who believe in a particular divine revelation from a god or their god. Divine revelation is much like a family inheritance or a martial arts lineage, much of it must be qualified by its quality. If it isn’t real, then it doesn’t matter, except as a placebo effect on human behavior. If it is real, but not accurate, then we got more problems. If it is real, and also accurate, then there are even more problems.
While it would have been ludicrous to expect primitive humans back in the day to imagine how a higher level eneity could have created a planet or a solar system, humans right now can envision the power levels capable of such a feat. A Kardashev 2-3 type civilization could easily do so. Most humans think of such as another biological civilization or empire, because humans have to anthropomorphize things, like a higher entity, to make sense of it. That’s less of a limitation on the source of pure power, as it is a rendition of human flaws and limits.
It is precisely because higher level entities have a hard time relating to us, and that we have a hard time relating to them, that communication breaks down. Consider trying to have a meaningful contract, verbal spar, or negotiation with an ant. Crush an ant, throw water on a colony, or kick it out, and the ant merely recognizes you as part of the natural world. Your malice or other intent, doesn’t get through to them, because you don’t communicate in pheromones. Nor do the ant’s communications make sense to you, except due diligent reverse engineering using human reason.
The reason, if there needs to be a reason, for why people pray to God and they cannot magically affect the world, is pretty simple. Try being an ant and then telling a human not to step on it. Go ahead and try. It’s not impossible, but it’s not done in the usual method.
Without faith, the spiritual conduit cannot reach this earthly realm and affect change. This is why science cannot accept divine power, because divine power breaks the known laws of physics. Except for quantum mechanics which is already weird and has already forced a reconsideration of the nature of matter. Faith vis a vis Schroedinger’s Cat, would be never opening the box, then hoping some chance or element will bring out the desired result. Because if you try to “prove” whether the cat is dead or alive, you have now sealed that fate into the reality by collapsing the wave front via observation. Only by making sure it is a closed box, and observing it with faith only, can an outside force then affect the contents of that closed box, which they can open, if you don’t open it first.
As for why I speak of faith affecting miracles on Earth, it’s because there are plenty of unexplained things under the sun for the scientific methodology. Whether God is or not, whether the Bible is true or not, whether it even is accurate or not, doesn’t matter, since right now I have seen evidence where humans have called upon powers outside of themselves, in order to effect change. Now usually that would be called a “coincidence”, but not even I can accept that as the case, given what I’ve seen and researched.
Jean De Arc was merely one of the notable examples, there are plenty more from this and last century.
Also, a lot of atheists these days, aren’t atheists. They operate on faith, even if it is faith in a man made god or humanity itself or the scientific status quo. It’s still faith, they haven’t transcended and left us behind, while they operate 100% on reason and rationality. The same things people desire from a religion, atheists get it from their belief systems, it’s just not the same method, while having the same result.
As for proof, the microwave may be humanity’s proof that their theory of the atom was right… after a few renditions and system overhauls. But the proof why God works is more subtle, since God is managing the entire planet and the entire human race. So unless a person understands all of humanity’s good and evil, all of its flaws and fruits, that person cannot even hope to understand whether the system is working or not. They could compare Christian nations to Islamic nations, but that would be a superficial, political comparison. Divine level entities care about spirits and divine level powers. Human power politics is far beneath them, merely a bug in the “debugging”.
“Why” divine level entities would be interested in affairs on a planet (which they could easily create if they wished) is the unanswered question. Although actually, it’s more like a question everyone thinks they know the answer to, just as scientists thought they knew how the world worked back when the theory of atom involved no protons and no neutrons. They certainly did know how the world worked… to the limit of their mortal comprehension at least. And yet as primitive as they were to us, those 2000-4000 years ago, are even more primitive to the early physicists. And as the progression appears, imagine what a divine level entity, which is more intelligent than every single human that has ever lived, combined together, operates at.
Genesis speaks of God creating the Earth, the waters, and the system in 6 days. Joseph Smith from the 1830s, added that this was a simulation. Smith also added in certain parts to Genesis, which I felt was left out. Such as exactly what was meant by “days”. It’s not earthly days, because the earth didn’t exist yet and it wasn’t even spinning on the current axial tilt. So whose days was it, that Abraham was thinking of? The people back then couldn’t count to 360 easily, they had to use the degrees of star gazing to figure out the years, months, and days. They would use sun dial geometries to measure the degrees of divergence as stars and planets moved in the heavens, calculating the seasons and thus the days, in a 360 degree arc, and thus in 360 days. These were measured purely in triangles.
A god or a divine level entity, that exists purely as spirit and not in this realm at all like a hyper volume, trying to explain stellar mechanics to Abraham? There would be certain things they could not leave out, since the explanation would have to be very basic. Those explanations are missing in Genesis itself. Either it didn’t happen, which calls into question whether Abraham was really talking to a superior entity, or it happened and nobody bothered to write it down. Or they did write it down but nobody could then understand it using human language, so people forgot about it, like the telephone game.
The context of this event is in this news link.
It’s part of my personal research into the Mormon Christians, the Southern Baptists, and Islam. If people are going to fight a religious war, now might be a good time to pay attention to which direction each faction is going.
I was reminded to study more thoroughly the prophets of old before 1st AD Christendom.
I can very well understand why the Zealot faction of Judea and the various other fanatical or fervours Jews disbelieved in the message of the Christian Messiah to prefer a king to lead them in a holy war.
The Future Glory of Zion
54 “Sing, barren woman,
you who never bore a child;
burst into song, shout for joy,
you who were never in labor;
because more are the children of the desolate woman
than of her who has a husband,”
says the Lord.
2 “Enlarge the place of your tent,
stretch your tent curtains wide,
do not hold back;
lengthen your cords,
strengthen your stakes.
3 For you will spread out to the right and to the left;
your descendants will dispossess nations
and settle in their desolate cities.
4 “Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame.
Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.
You will forget the shame of your youth
and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.
5 For your Maker is your husband—
the Lord Almighty is his name—
the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;
he is called the God of all the earth.
6 The Lord will call you back
as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit—
a wife who married young,
only to be rejected,” says your God.
7 “For a brief moment I abandoned you,
but with deep compassion I will bring you back.
8 In a surge of anger
I hid my face from you for a moment,
but with everlasting kindness
I will have compassion on you,”
says the Lord your Redeemer.
9 “To me this is like the days of Noah,
when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth.
So now I have sworn not to be angry with you,
never to rebuke you again.
10 Though the mountains be shaken
and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
nor my covenant of peace be removed,”
says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
11 “Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted,
I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise,[a]
your foundations with lapis lazuli.
12 I will make your battlements of rubies,
your gates of sparkling jewels,
and all your walls of precious stones.
13 All your children will be taught by the Lord,
and great will be their peace.
14 In righteousness you will be established:
Tyranny will be far from you;
you will have nothing to fear.
Terror will be far removed;
it will not come near you.
15 If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing;
whoever attacks you will surrender to you.
16 “See, it is I who created the blacksmith
who fans the coals into flame
and forges a weapon fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc;
17 no weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the Lord.
After being promised that their enemies would surrender to them, they must have thought God’s power would guarantee victory. No, the only nation that this would apply to would be America, specifically the USA. How were the primitive back then supposed to know that thousands of years would happen first before humanity got to that level? Back then, around the first AD in Judea, many false prophets arose, claiming to be Moses’ second messiah. Similar to striking gold in the Californian gold rush or buying snake oil healing solutions. Sometimes it is fool’s gold and sometimes the healing solution is a poison. Humans have been known to deceive others as well as themselves.
Of course, America’s protection, through the grace of God, can only be sustained if the people remain righteous. If ever they fall to sin and evil across the continent, then the conduit to God’s power will be disrupted, and the protection or grace will be removed.
In some ways, Israel is indeed the lesser satan, as viewed by Islam’s Allah, or what may be known as Lucifer. The USA came first, however, even if the byproduct is an ocean away. The USA is the greater satan to Islam’s Lucifer. While the secular nations have diverged, the holy connections are still the same as before.
Isaiah 3New International Version (NIV)
Judgment on Jerusalem and Judah
3 See now, the Lord,
the Lord Almighty,
is about to take from Jerusalem and Judah
both supply and support:
all supplies of food and all supplies of water,
2 the hero and the warrior,
the judge and the prophet,
the diviner and the elder,
3 the captain of fifty and the man of rank,
the counselor, skilled craftsman and clever enchanter.
4 “I will make mere youths their officials;
children will rule over them.”
5 People will oppress each other—
man against man, neighbor against neighbor.
The young will rise up against the old,
the nobody against the honored.
6 A man will seize one of his brothers
in his father’s house, and say,
“You have a cloak, you be our leader;
take charge of this heap of ruins!”
7 But in that day he will cry out,
“I have no remedy.
I have no food or clothing in my house;
do not make me the leader of the people.”
8 Jerusalem staggers,
Judah is falling;
their words and deeds are against the Lord,
defying his glorious presence.
9 The look on their faces testifies against them;
they parade their sin like Sodom;
they do not hide it.
Woe to them!
They have brought disaster upon themselves.
10 Tell the righteous it will be well with them,
for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.
11 Woe to the wicked!
Disaster is upon them!
They will be paid back
for what their hands have done.
12 Youths oppress my people,
women rule over them.
My people, your guides lead you astray;
they turn you from the path.
13 The Lord takes his place in court;
he rises to judge the people.
14 The Lord enters into judgment
against the elders and leaders of his people:
“It is you who have ruined my vineyard;
the plunder from the poor is in your houses.
15 What do you mean by crushing my people
and grinding the faces of the poor?”
declares the Lord, the Lord Almighty.
16 The Lord says,
“The women of Zion are haughty,
walking along with outstretched necks,
flirting with their eyes,
strutting along with swaying hips,
with ornaments jingling on their ankles.
17 Therefore the Lord will bring sores on the heads of the women of Zion;
the Lord will make their scalps bald.”
18 In that day the Lord will snatch away their finery: the bangles and headbands and crescent necklaces, 19 the earrings and bracelets and veils, 20 the headdresses and anklets and sashes, the perfume bottles and charms, 21 the signet rings and nose rings, 22 the fine robes and the capes and cloaks, the purses 23 and mirrors, and the linen garments and tiaras and shawls.
24 Instead of fragrance there will be a stench;
instead of a sash, a rope;
instead of well-dressed hair, baldness;
instead of fine clothing, sackcloth;
instead of beauty, branding.
25 Your men will fall by the sword,
your warriors in battle.
26 The gates of Zion will lament and mourn;
destitute, she will sit on the ground.
One of those problems with decadence, I would think. Irregardless of the age of man in which humans reside.
It’s hard to date this, so we’ll go with 550 BC, from another transliteration/translation.
1 For behold, the Lord, the Lord of Hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem, and from Judah, the stay and the staff, the whole staff of bread, and the whole stay of water—
2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient;
3 The captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counselor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.
4 And I will give children unto them to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.
5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor; the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honorable.
6 When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, and shall say: Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let not this ruin come under thy hand—
7 In that day shall he swear, saying: I will not be a healer; for in my house there is neither bread nor clothing; make me not a ruler of the people.
8 For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen, because their tongues and their doings have been against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory.
9 The show of their countenance doth witness against them, and doth declare their sin to be even as Sodom, and they cannot hide it. Wo unto their souls, for they have rewarded evil unto themselves!
10 Say unto the righteous that it is well with them; for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
11 Wo unto the wicked, for they shall perish; for the reward of their hands shall be upon them!
12 And my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they who lead thee cause thee to err and destroy the way of thy paths.
13 The Lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people.
14 The Lord will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people and the princes thereof; for ye have eaten up the vineyard and the spoil of the poor in your houses.
15 What mean ye? Ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor, saith the Lord God of Hosts.
16 Moreover, the Lord saith: Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched-forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet—
17 Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts.
18 In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments, and cauls, and round tires like the moon;
19 The chains and the bracelets, and the mufflers;
20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the ear-rings;
21 The rings, and nose jewels;
22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping-pins;
23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and hoods, and the veils.
24 And it shall come to pass, instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle, a rent; and instead of well set hair, baldness; and instead of a stomacher, a girding of sackcloth; burning instead of beauty.
25 Thy men shall fall by the sword and thy mighty in the war.
26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she shall be desolate, and shall sit upon the ground.
This one, almost sounds like they are talking about democracy. Women and youths ruling over others? Where or when has that ever happened in history… usually it is the elders and males who rule politically.
It becomes difficult to interpret what these prophets were seeing. I don’t think even they would have known the historical context and present day geo political boundaries of the USA or Israel. They could be seeing Israel right now. Or just seeing the USA and thinking it is Israel, because there are Jews and Christians here (and deserts). Or they could be seeing both as inseparable, or neither one at all. Visions and voiced commands from God, in that sense, would be like commands from a GPS navigation device in a car. Without a map or context, you might be going anywhere, even off a mountain. If someone were to ask the driver where they were, after x miles and y sets of instructions, they would’t know either.
The issue, as people here including Parker and GBritain have noted on Neo’s blog, are the voters. H RodDamn Clinton and John Fing Kerry and Trump may die in 10 years or 30 years. Or just tomorrow. They aren’t the source of the problem. The problem is the voters who support Kerry and Clinton, who cover for them, who do the evil work of their bureaucracies. Faith and good, require works, or else they are empty. Evil, if it is merely malevolence, violence, and hate, is not enough to serve the goal of evil, one must have henchmen and bureaucrats to do the actual leg work.
So the issue isn’t whether Trump or Cruz is a totalitarian wannabe megalomaniac. The issue is the voters, they, we will always have with us. Even if this generation totally dies out, the next one can be renewed or replaced by Muslims or Europeans. They’ll still be the same, human Poison at large.
Once the voters become obedient Democrats on the human farm plantation… well, then it’s all over. Not even God will be capable of extending a hand over that mass of human trash. But becoming a Demoncrat doesn’t mean joining their religion, it means becoming like them, closer to them, using their methods, understanding their hate, subliming their free will and conscience under the dictates of Power, Victory, Elections, and Fear.
To become like evil is to copy evil. To win elections or wars may mean copying the enemy, as US operators did with Mao’s insurgency manuals in the Phillippines. To win against evil, however, and H RodDamn Clinton may indeed be evil just like all your family and friends who voted for Hussein Obola killing American children with a toast and smile on his face. But fighting evil requires that you not be evil. Once you become like evil, whatever you think you are doing, is now for them. The House of Evil is not divided, although it appears so.
Free will and moral agency, once given up, you cannot get back. Doesn’t matter what your leaders call themselves, Crusaders, establishment, elites, Trump blue collars, Cruz, or anybody else. They are all human. They are all mortal. I do not consider them gods, not anything even close.
That is why America and the world will Burn. Not merely the USA but all of the Americas. Because that is what humanity deserves. People can only learn to value what truly matters through adversity and pain. That is not my fault, that is your nature’s or creator’s fault.
I, personally, feel honored to be at the bonfire. While terrorists and communists have burned their enemies, while the enemies of Charles Martel’s descendants and Charlemagne’s descendants burned Jean De Arc, I wasn’t there to see, or think, or do anything about it. Now that people who truly are responsible for the evils of this world, can feel the heat of the fire, I do not regret missing out on all those historical events. For we also live in interesting times, where we may glorify our own lives and souls by picking good or evil. Whichever team people may be on, let us continue to fight, until the Last Battle.
It will be a fun battle, one full of meaning, fate, and justice. Even God is allowed to be bound by the results of this war. A Kardashev 2 or 3 type civilization or entity bound by the events on a Kardashev .6 civilization on one planet… ironic.
If evil exists in HRC, Hussein and Leftists, what then opposes evil? If light exists, what is darkness? As there is matter, opposed by anti matter, this universe is strangely balanced between black and white. The grayness is more of a mixing, of supernovas and battles, contests of will. The black can turn white. The white can turn black, just like a Go board. The brighter the day, the darker the shadows. The more powerful good becomes on Earth, the more people will fall into evil and hateful unrighteousness. The more evil there is on this planet, the more people begin to understand what good is.
Predicting Civil War 2 for the USA is easy, even 7 years ago. Trying to see into the fate of all things, that we know of, is far more difficult.
