  • Astronomers access huge amounts of data on the stars in our galaxy from Gaia space telescope

    04/25/2018 3:44:06 PM PDT · by BBell · 10 replies
    Aa Astronomers are celebrating a massive data release that offers them the richest ever map of the Milky Way. The information comes from ESA's GAIA space telescope, which has surveyed almost two billion stars in our galaxy. They now have very precise data on billions of stars around our galaxy that will make for decades of analysis. It gives them the possibility to research the history of our galaxy and postulate what might happen in the future, too.Astronomer FranÁois Mignard was one of the founding fathers of the GAIA mission. So why does this data release make such a difference...
  • Darren Aronofsky Film 'Mother!' Promotes Idolatrous Earth-Worshiping Version of the Lord's Prayer

    Not much is known about the new film "Mother!" Director Darren Aronofsky has remained silent about many of the details, but he has released a disturbing poem which twists the Lord's Prayer. "Our mother who art underfoot, hallowed be thy names, thy seasons come, thy will be done, within us as around us, thank you for our daily bread, our water, our air, and our lives and so much beauty; lead us not into selfish craving and the destructions that are the hungers of the glutted, but deliver us from wonton consumption of thy vast but finite bounty, for thine...

    We've all heard it endlessly: the Arctic ice is melting. It will soon be open water, and the surrounding islands bare rock. The Northwest Passage, which lured hundreds to their doom during the Age of Exploration, will at last be a reality. The polar bears will go hungry. Eskimo shamans will no longer be able to contact the Ice Goddess. Manhattan and Long Island will soon be fifty miles offshore... And so on, certainly one of the most dominant and persistent memes of the global warming movement, despite its not containing so much as an ounce of truth. The latest...

    BBC ^ | 9/14/16 | Jonathan Amos
    The most precise map of the night sky ever assembled is taking shape. Astronomers working on the Gaia space telescope have released a first tranche of data recording the position and brightness of over a billion stars. And for some two million of these objects, their distance and sideways motion across the heavens has also been accurately plotted. Gaia's mapping effort is already unprecedented in scale, but it still has several years to run. Remarkably, scientists say the store of information even now is too big for them to sift, and they are appealing for the public's help in making...
  • Is Donald Trump Evil? The Religious Left Thinks He Is

    ďChristians are Ďcalled to resistí Trump.Ē So read the headline accompanying a polemic authored by Rev. Dr. David Gushee, Director of the Center for Theology and Public Life at Mercer University in Georgia. It was published this past week by Religion News Service, which provides left-of-center religious news and commentary to more than 100 media outlets, including the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune and Huffington Post. The ďcallĒ to which Gushee referred is a statement (which he helped draft) that was released last month by ďa multiracial group of Christian ministers and scholars.Ē The group condemns Donald Trump, they say, because...
  • James Lovelock: 'Enjoy life while you can: in 20 years global warming will hit the fan (2008)'

    Guardian ^ | 3/1/2008
    In 1965 executives at Shell wanted to know what the world would look like in the year 2000. They consulted a range of experts, who speculated about fusion-powered hovercrafts and "all sorts of fanciful technological stuff". When the oil company asked the scientist James Lovelock, he predicted that the main problem in 2000 would be the environment. "It will be worsening then to such an extent that it will seriously affect their business," he said. "And of course," Lovelock says, with a smile 43 years later, "that's almost exactly what's happened." Lovelock has been dispensing predictions from his one-man laboratory...

    Pope Francis should be brought in on the fact that the environmental movement genuflects not to God but to Gaia Pontificating from his window in a Vatican palazzo on Sunday, Pope Francis bypassed tens of thousands of pilgrims and tourists, to lavish with gushing praise a few hundred activists who had marched to St. Peterís Square under the banner ĎOne Earth, one familyĒ. Sunday marked the Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul. ďI encourage the collaboration between persons and associations of different religions on behalf of an integral ecology,Ē Francis said, offering good wishes to young people discussing what...

    While the witch-hunt against Confederate flags, statues, paintings and even stained glass windows continues to distract the masses, itís really the churches Big Government most covet Now that Gay Day June 26th has come to pass, and Barack Obama had the White House flooded in the colours of the gay rainbow, Sundays will never be the same. Sunday, that is, as the day Christians come to church to worship the Creator. The progressives want Sunday, and as sure as Lucifer is now calling the shots, they will be coming for it. Sunday, the day of rest, will ultimately become the...

    Harvesting the Truth of the Vatican II ^ | June 19, 2015 | Louie Verrecchio
    The number one most important lesson to be learned from the documentís 40,000+ words is the indisputable reality that the Catholic Church in our day; more precisely, the men who are leading her and duly running her into the ground, the Bishop of Rome chief among them, has little concern for the mission that was given to the Church by Christ the King.

    Courtesy of Vox Cantoris, we are alerted to the astonishing end of the encyclical, Laudato Si. I wonder if any paragraph worse than this could have been written by any Pope. The text is below. This is not a draft. It is the official version from the Vatican site. 246. At the conclusion of this lengthy reflection which has been both joyful and troubling, I propose that we offer two prayers. The first we can share with all who believe in a God who is the all-powerful Creator, while in the other we Christians ask for inspiration to take up...

    Why is it that both the Vatican and the Obama White House feel they can be so open and candid about their close collaboration? Is the Administration part of the Catholic Church or is the Church a mouthpiece for the Administration... or is Communism just a modern word for the Gospel, like Pope Francis says? Why do we keep hearing the same ugly messages wherever we look? In a bid to bolster the Obama administration's "moral" case for combating climate change, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency will meet senior Vatican officials Friday to enlist papal support for its...

    ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE ó Pope Francis said Thursday he is convinced that global warming is "mostly" man-made and that he hopes his upcoming encyclical on the environment will encourage negotiators at a climate change meeting in Paris to make "courageous" decisions to protect God's creation. Francis has spoken out frequently about the "culture of waste" that has imperiled the environment and he elaborated en route to the Philippines. While there, Francis will meet with survivors of the 2013 Typhoon Haiyan, which the government has said was an example of the extreme weather conditions that global warming has wrought. "I...

    Disciples of Gaia and the Deindustrialization of America Anyone who has followed the debate over climate change in recent years has probably noted the seemingly religious fervor with which the pro-alarmist crowd approaches the subject. Opposition to the environmentalist agenda of deindustrialization is not just viewed as wrong policy, but the rankest heresy. To deny that man-made global warming is going to destroy the Earth is tantamount to spitting upon the holy scriptures of the ďgreenĒ faith. Opposition is not just misinformed or wrong-headed, but is actually sinful and evil, unholiness that cannot be allowed to continue by the Disciples...

    It's one of the most famous monster stories of all time. And now Godzilla has had a reboot - complete with incredible special effects and an amazing cast - for a new blockbuster due for release this summer. A new extended trailer for the movie, which stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, shows the back story of Bryan's nuclear physicist character Joe Brody, as well as the first proper look at the terrifying monster.
