Frost sparkles in the morning sun, no wind to speak of and the last few wheelbarrows of soil are waiting to be moved from one end of the garden to the other.
The sun moves back from its most northerly aspect as the days get slightly longer and my eyes deceive me. It’s the world which moves.
Self evident? Not at all.
“We have differing world views.” Does it matter? It matters if one’s world view then prompts aggressive action.
It’s everywhere on display with ‘Islamic State’ mentalities driving political outcomes, totalitarian States and all with differing world views to me.
Whether the Universe is electric makes no obvious difference to everyday life but in today’s world where ‘climate change’ scenarios steer political and business life and, as yet, the International Panel on Climate Change doesn’t take into account the effect of the medium to long term cycles of the sun then it really does matter.
The world view I grew up with included, as a backdrop of sorts, evolution over aeons with little change apart from the odd asteroid – This is the idea of Uniformitarianism … as defined by Wikipedia :
“Uniformitarianism, also known as the Doctrine of Uniformity or the Uniformitarian Principle, is the assumption that the same natural laws and processes that operate in our present-day scientific observations have always operated in the universe in the past and apply everywhere in the universe.”
This is an assumption and nothing more but it was enthusiastically adopted in the 1800’s and remains so today. It’s cosy and safe and so much part of the backdrop to life that it's not noticed.
This view sat alongside a biblical world view which may or may not have had a literal Garden of Eden and perhaps encompassed some thousands of years. It also sat well, in an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ manner, with Darwin’s ideas.
That world view which perhaps I vaguely held was sharply changed by Velikovsky who presented evidence of a catastrophic past as detailed in his Worlds in Collision, Earth in Upheaval and other works.
And yet he’s not taught in schools.
I get the local weather by looking out of the window. When it comes to climate and change I look further afield and don’t blindly accept the pap I’m fed. It’s not hard to check. I did so with temperatures in Australia.
‘Suspicious Observers’ do a five minute daily update on the sun, its cycles, space weather and more. A Universe which is electric – which is what the evidence shows – changes all the climate models used by the IPCC which is doing its best to terrify the world with what is essentially a lie.
Those teaching that the Earth is flat don’t take kindly to being told otherwise.
Anyway, just musing … I wasn’t aware that I had a ‘world view’ until it became obvious due to…. difference.
Fragments of a shattered mirror in which, like Alice being told by the White Queen about believing impossible things……
Alice laughed. `There's no use trying,' she said `one can't believe impossible things.'
`I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen. `When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.’
I don’t recall much dwelling by the Church of my childhood on the Book of Revelations but the ‘bit about the beast’ came to mind when Bankcard appeared years ago and the triple ‘b’ was seen as ‘666’ – the number of the beast.
Gave me cause to wonder why ANYONE would take such a mark if that scripture were well known.
“16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
Well … I don’t know about the ‘numbers’ but in light of the pandemic and the moves to make vaccinations mandated for many occupations, there is an ‘or else’ implied … ‘or else’ one cannot participate … however I don’t think ‘heaven and hell’ come into it … it’s more a flat statement of fact, via scripture, about the circumstances in which we all now live.
Just one way of looking at things but, no doubt, part of an ‘end times’ Christian view for some.
And then there’s the twenty year anniversary of 9/11 coming up this September and the lie – exposed by the four year study into the collapse of Building 7 but completely ignored by the main stream media – continues to be regurgitated and a whole generation knows no other story.
The magnitude of 9/11 is immense, rippled out into the destruction of whole societies and changed the world.
Is it worth another look ... do my eyes deceive me?
no - eyes are o.k. and the evidence is sound.
