Wake up Jarrah! It’s time to die!

Your round world is dying dude! Qantas has plenty of flights from and to Anchorage (Alaska). Why should Qantas keep a link between Australian metropolis to a town in the middle of nowhere near the North Pole? Because Alaska is a stop en route to North, Central and South America! The globe model is wrong.
Come on man, wake up!

Gli infrarossi non mentono: la Terra è piana!

Un altro magnifico video di JTolan con telecamera a raggi infrarossi. La faccia della Terra è piatta, per migliaia di chilometri, come una faccia umana, eccetto i rilievi montuosi e altre fattezze orografiche.

Catena montuosa distante oltre 1500 km (in alto).
Ammettendo una quota di 10.000 metri e una distanza di 1500 km dall’osservatore, la catena montuosa sullo sfondo dovrebbe trovarsi affondata di oltre 100 km dietro la curvatura terrestre. Se ciò non avviene, è perché la Terra è piatta!

Nuclear Weapons Hoax

By Gina Flores

Editor at NoFakeNews

For many years we have been told nuclear weapons have been stockpiled by various superpower countries. We have all been exposed to the paradigm that promotes the idea that nuclear weapons have made the world a far safer place even though these horrific devices could theoretically wipe out millions of lives in a few seconds. We’ve been told nuclear weapons are a deterrent to other potentially dangerous enemies of the United States and its allies and that they ultimately prevent wars and allow peace on earth to flourish.

Is it possible that what we have been taught about this subject is based on establishment lies?

After it was developed, the atomic bomb was allegedly dropped on Japan twice in the 1940’s. The bombs reportedly brought a quick end to World War II. The technology was never used again in any war although the threat of nuclear weapons against humanity and the planet has been publicized ad nauseum.

The only other evidence of atomic weapons being used in history has come in the form of highly secretive government tests. All of these tests have had limited government witnesses and many have been conducted underground or underwater. All of these tests could have been performed with the use of conventional bombs. TNT could have been used to fabricate any A-Bomb test. And yes, conventional bombs can and do produce the classic mushroom clouds that we routinely associate with atomic bombs.

In addition, the continuous threat of nukes being detonated by terrorists has been so overplayed in Hollywood movie productions throughout the years that people are now programmed to believe it’s only a matter of time before one of these devices will be used against a highly populated city. Yet there have been zero nukes used by crazy terrorists anywhere in the world. This fact alone is more than a little strange.

There are anonymous government insiders who claim the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed by conventional fire bombings and not by atomic weapons. There are some researchers who claim atomic bombs are impossible to manufacture.

The buildings that were left intact and the lack of radiation found in Hiroshima and Nagasaki seem to support this claim.

Israel is purported to have a huge inventory of 400 nuclear weapons at their disposal and yet they have never detonated one device in the direction of their Arab neighbors. These are the same Arab neighbors they despise. Are they bluffing?

With so many unstable countries and crazy terrorist groups allegedly in existence, and so many nuclear weapons seemingly at their disposal or available for sale, how is it possible that not one nuclear incident has ever occurred?

What other amazing technology was revealed long ago and has never been used again, although we are constantly reminded of the accomplishment? The moon landings of course; another hoax of epic proportions.

Do the world leaders of certain countries really walk around with nuclear suitcases and corresponding launch codes? Do nuclear weapons actually exist? Probably not.

Before you write all of this off as a crazy conspiracy theory, think for a minute about how much leverage certain countries possess over others because of their claimed nuclear arsenals. What if there are zero nukes in existence in the entire world?

Think of all the military spending that’s taken place with regards to nuclear programs. And don’t forget about all the money that’s been budgeted by countries to protect their infrastructures from incoming nuclear weapons.

Just as the elites have lied about space technology and visiting the moon, there’s a damn good chance they’re lying about the existence of atomic weapons. They have lied about most things people have been taught are real. ( https://christianflatearthministry.org/2022/04/19/nuclear-weapons-hoax/ )

20 Proofs NASA Faked the Moon Landings

Between 1969-1972 NASA, the American National Aeronautics and Space Administration, allegedly flew 6 successful manned missions to the Moon where they did everything from playing golf, to speeding around in a dune buggy, to receiving a live phone call From President Nixon. In reality, when examined in-depth with a critical eye however, these staged events are found to be nothing but a monumental hoax perpetrated upon a gullible and unsuspecting public.

Reason Behind Mars Mission

Credit: fixedearth.com

That counterfeit origins scenario and the counterfeit god behind it constitute the whole underlying agenda of NASA’s Space Science Enterprise. From its inception, the overriding purpose for the Mars Missions has been made unmistakably plain…as seen in Part I and this more recent quote:

Egypt and Mars terrain“The search for water drives all of NASA’s Mars missions, because water is the key ingredient required for life.”

In short, all of the Mars Missions are specifically designed to “discover” any sign of liquid water or microbial life. Along with universal media compliance and a constantly reinforced bombardment of evolution babble (which the public has been schooled to receive as scientific truth), it is expected that such “discoveries” will then be counted as “proof” that extraterrestrial evolutionism is a scientific fact.

This “fact” will then “confirm” the recent “Paradigm Shift” of the Evolution Establishment. For a century and a half the world has been indoctrinated into the belief that the alleged mechanisms of Darwinism are what started life on Earth. But now–as we saw even devoted evolutionary scientists have abandoned that myth. The new Evolutionary Paradigm…the new myth…of how life on Earth and throughout the universe had its beginnings is now locked into the “Panspermia” concept whereby comets spew out bacteria all over the universe and it evolves into ETs and Klingons and Evolutionary Scientists.

In this effort to establish this crazy Kabbalist Kosmos that is 15 billion years old and 15 billion light years thick and swarming with evolving life, the Mars Missions are critical. Make no mistake: The Mars Missions are meant to make evolutionism the winner in the “creation sweepstakes” and put Bible Creationism (and Bible credibility on through the New Testament of Jesus Christ) out of business.

In addition to all the claims and speculations from the Rovers over the next couple of months, the real wild card in the Kabbalist’s hand will be the return of the thimble full of alleged comet exhaust allegedly captured in the “Stardust” operation before the Rovers ever landed. That alleged exhaust is scheduled for return to Earth in January, 2006. At that time its wispy contents will be examined with great fanfare and appropriately faked trepidation as to whether it contains bacteria or not.

As that scheduled but presently muted drama unfolds, the credibility of the evolutionary “creation story” now resting on acceptance of the new “Panspermia Paradigm” (based on the expulsion of bacteria by comets) will have its chance to claim final victory over Bible Creationism if bacteria is allegedly found on Mars or in that vial of comet exhaust (to be confirmed by a select group of allegedly impartial scientists).

Notwithstanding all this scheming, there is one scientific issue which is guaranteed to stop the tax-funded Kabbalic evolutionary bandwagon in its tracks. That issue is equally guaranteed to establish worldwide an irresistible and irrefutable slam dunk case for Bible inerrancy from Genesis I through Revelation XXII.

That one scientific issue is the leitmotif of this web page, namely, that Copernicanism is the demonstrably factless and vulnerable keystone of all false science and false religion. Once the exposure of Copernicanism’s baselessness is complete, it will quickly become evident that Copernicanism is also the Achilles Heel of all deception which is dependent on the rotating and orbiting Earth concept. Very little mental strain is required to comprehend that the result of the demise of Copernicanism will usher in a separation of the world’s populations into the Satan worshippers and God worshippers plainly described in Rev. 13:2b-7; etc. ( https://christianflatearthministry.org/ )

Oltre ogni ragionevole dubbio

Perché mai la compagnia di bandiera australiana (nel cui logo c’è il canguro) effettua voli all’interno degli USA fra Alaska e costa orientale?

Il video realizzato dall’amico Eddie Alencar illustra senza possibilità di smentita alcuna che la Terra è piatta. In che senso? I voli aerei per il sud degli Stati uniti o per il Messico, provenienti dall’Australia, transitano tutti a nord delle isole Hawaii. La qual cosa sarebbe impossibile, se la Terra fosse una sfera. Se avete sottomano un mappamondo, potete fare la verifica voi stessi. I velivoli diretti in Messico, addirittura, fanno scalo in Canada (Vancouver) cioè molto più a Settentrione di quanto sarebbe se atterrassero direttamente a Città del Messico.
I velivoli dall’Australia provengono sempre da Nord (facendo scalo in Alaska) per raggiungere USA e Messico. Come è possibile se l’Australia sta vicina al polo Sud?

First Photograph of Earth’s Curvature

https://i0.wp.com/www.aroundlabnews.com/en/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Untitled-2.jpg
First Photograph of Earth’s Curvature.

On Dec. 30, 1930, the first photograph that captured the curvature of the Earth was displayed at a joint session of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The photo was taken by Capt. Albert Stevens of the U.S. Army Air Corps, which later became the U.S. Air Force. Stevens used panchromatic photographic film to record an image of an area larger than some states.

The photo captured the distant horizon over 300 miles ahead as bent slightly downward toward one end. Taking photos from the sky was difficult and, to cut through haze, Stevens employed infrared-sensitive film for long-distance aerial shots where subjects were visually obscured.

In 1932, Stevens took the first photographs of the Moon’s shadow on the Earth during a solar eclipse. In 1934, Stevens and army officers Maj. William Kepner and Capt. Orvil Anderson boarded a specially built balloon to attempt to break the altitude record however the balloon burst but all three men managed to parachute to safety.

The 10 Longest Flights in the World prove flat earth

So, What’s the longest flight YOU have ever been on? Have you ever wondered how far you have traveled in one full swoop? Spare a thought and credit yourselves a chance. Though there are plenty of travelers I who just hate sitting on a plane being told when can they get up, when can’t they; what can they bring on board, what can’t they on board on long-haul flights.  There are many who harbor very little love for long-haul flights. Well I wont be hardpressed to find myself on this strange bucket list to be on board in the longest of non-stop flights in the world, without even touching down for a layover. I often wonder what its like to absorb the surreal experience of taking the longest non-stop flight in the world with the sweetest of window seat and my laptop, documenting the experience- the stunning landscapes, mesmerizing views, breaking a friendly discussion with an awesome seatmate, taking selfies, eating, drinking, sleeping and much more..   Listing below top 10 longest (by distance) non-stop flights in the world  

1.Sydney SYD – Dallas DFW (8,578 miles)

Qantas’ Sydney to Dallas/Forth Worth A380 service currently takes the top spot as the longest commercial flight in the world in terms of distance – a whopping 8,578 miles without stopping.   #Very soon Turkish Airlines to start world’s longest non-stop flight, to Australia to break the record set by Qantas’ Sydney to Dallas for a route from Istanbul-IST to Sydney-SYD, 9,293 miles apart.https://4c19f42dd883c630248db8c98ec53120.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

“The Circle of the Earth” Translation and Meaning in Isaiah 40:22

by Dennis Bratcher

Isaiah 40:22 It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to live in;

Some people, for various reasons, take “the circle of the earth” in Isaiah 40:22 to be a reference to a spherical earth. This would mean that the ancient Israelites of the eighth century BC knew that the earth was spherical and not flat. This perspective shows up in arguments from both Young Earth Creationists -1- and from those wanting to argue an absolutely literal reading of the biblical text, usually to support the idea that God revealed modern scientific facts and data to the ancient Israelites.

Engaging those perspectives might prove helpful to many Christians trying to take seriously both the scientific world in which they live and the perspectives of Scripture that come from a world three to two millennia in the past. However before we can begin to engage that discussion, we must come to terms with what the Bible actually says and means, especially within the context of Ancient Near Eastern culture.

It is important at least to consider and try to understand what the Bible says on the level of language and meaning before one jumps to taking single words out of a context to make an apologetic case for a notion or a doctrine. Simply working from a favorite translation that uses certain English words to which we then apply meaning in relation to our modern perspectives, knowledge, and world-view (how we understand the physical world to work) is not good enough. We must try to hear the Biblical text against the background, the literary, cultural and historical milieus, from which it was written.

The Hebrew word that is used in Isaiah 40:22 (חוּג, chug) does not at all imply a spherical earth. The root word only occurs in the Hebrew Bible once as a verb (Job 26:10). In nominal forms, the same root occurs four times, three as the noun חוּג (chug; Job 22:14, Prov 8:27, Isa 40:22), and once as the noun מְחוּגׇה (mechugah; Isa 44:13). This term refers to a “circle instrument,” a device used to make a circle, what we call a compass.

Isaiah 44:13 refers to this “circle instrument.”

Isa 44:13 The carpenter stretches a line, marks it out with a stylus, fashions it with planes, and marks it with a compass; he makes it in human form, with human beauty, to be set up in a shrine. [NIV]

The verbal form of the word basically means “to make a circle” or “to scribe a circle.”

Job 26:10 He has described a circle on the face of the waters, at the boundary between light and darkness. [NRSV]

Most modern translators agree that this “scribing a circle” in relation to the world refers to the horizon of the earth.

NIV: He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between light and darkness.

NLT: He created the horizon when he separated the waters; he set the boundary between day and night.

GWT: He marks the horizon on the surface of the water at the boundary where light meets dark.

Ancient people were very good at observing the physical properties of the earth without necessarily understanding how all of those properties worked. The horizon of the earth is easily seen from any high vantage point or open area as an encompassing circle. This led ancient peoples to describe this “circle” or the horizon as the “edge” or “end” of the earth (Deut 13:7, 1 Sam 2:10, Job 28:24, Psa 48:10, etc.).

The poetic hymn of Proverbs 30:4 uses this “ends of the earth” language to say much the same thing that Isaiah 44:13 says by “circle of the earth” and that Job 26 expresses by saying “he scribed a circle on the face of the waters.”

Prov 30:4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in the hollow of the hand? Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is the person’s name? And what is the name of the person’s child? Surely you know!

The other uses of the same Hebrew root reveal a similar meaning.

Job 22:14 Thick clouds enwrap him, so that he does not see, and he walks on the dome of heaven.

Ancient people of 2,000 or 1,000 BC did not have modern scientific knowledge. Yet they developed perceptions of the physical world based on observations. It was certainly not scientific but practical, based on what they could observe simply by looking at the earth and sky.

People of the Ancient Near East, as well as ancient Hebrews and Israelites, conceptualized the world as a large, flat, circular disk anchored in water below (the deep, Prov 8:27, Gen 1:2, 49:25, etc.) by pillars or foundations (1 Sam 2:8, Prov 8:29, etc.). Between the earth and this deep was Sheol, the place of the dead. -2- The earth was covered by a “firmament,” conceived as a large solid upside down bowl or “dome” (Job 22:14, 37:18), in which the stars were placed (Gen 1:14-20). Above the dome was also water, which was the source of rain.

Gen 1:7 So God made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome.

The dome had “doors” and “windows” to let the waters above fall to the earth (Gen 7:11, Isa 24:18, Mal 3:10, etc.). God was described as ruling the world from his throne above the dome (Psa 33, Psa 113:4-6, Matt 5:34, etc.).

These references are not just isolated anomalies amidst an otherwise scientific grasp of the world. These conceptions are pervasive throughout the biblical narratives, not only in describing the physical world, but extended into metaphorical applications relating to other topics or even simply as ways to talk about the world and God. For example, creation hymns (Psa 33, 104, Hab 3, etc.) evoke these images as a form of praise. Or in the Babel story God must “come down” to see the puny work of humanity (Gen 11:5).

While there are many graphic depictions of ancient cosmology, we need to keep in mind that this was not a pictorial conception, but a functional and descriptive one. It is we in the modern world who tend to want visual imagery and reduce ideas to graphics and charts. Yet for ancient people this was simply a way of expressing what they saw about the operation of the physical world.

https://edwardtbabinski.us/facebook/cosmology/rakia.png

Ancient cosmology.

Also, we should not conclude that this way of talking about the physical world is what the Bible teaches as a reality, something in which we must believe in order to believe Scripture. Instead, this is the way ancient people talked about their experience of the world in the absence of any scientific knowledge about the processes at work in the world. Certainly we would describe the world today in much different terms. But then we live 3,000 years later in human history with much more knowledge about the physical world, and a different conceptual model and different vocabulary with which to describe the world.

We certainly affirm that Scripture is fully inspired by God (plenary inspiration; see Revelation and Inspiration of Scripture). Yet what is interesting is that even with inspiration, God allowed these ancient ways of looking at the world to stand without correction. In other words, God did not reveal modern scientific knowledge to the ancient Israelites, or correct their ancient views of the way the world works. He let them express marvelous truths about God in the language and culture in which they lived. That incarnational dimension of Scripture is crucial for us to understand if we are to hear adequately the important confessions about God and humanity that Scripture expresses.

The poetic Ode to Wisdom in Proverbs certainly seems to confirm this ancient view of the world.

Prov 8:27 When he established the heavens, I was there, when he drew a circle on the face of the deep, 8:28 when he made firm the skies above, when he established the fountains of the deep, 8:29 when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth . .

This supports the idea of the earth as a flat disk with foundational pillars to allow it to “float” on the great deep below the earth. It is a good depiction of Ancient Near Eastern cosmology, which the Israelites shared.

So, the “circle” of Isaiah 40:22 refers to the horizon of the earth, which is very obviously perceived as a circle since it can be seen in 360º from most anywhere on earth. In Ancient Near Eastern conceptions, this circle would refer to the flat earth disk, not to a sphere.

Notes

1. Young Earth Creationism is the belief that the earth is only between 6,000 and 10,000 years old. There are several versions, but are usually based on a very literalist reading of the Genesis narratives, including the idea that all of creation occurred within the span of six 24-hour days. [Return]

2. Sheol was not a “place” as much as it was a way to talk about death and burial. While graves and tombs were certainly physical places, Sheol was a way to talk concretely about the abstraction of death. See Sheol, Hell, and the Dead  [Return]
