Fossilized lichens?

Lichenrock

My lab assistant/dog discovered this small rock, about the diameter of a silver dollar, seemingly thinking it was chocolate candy. It has a white mineral structure on top of it resembling lichen, but I can’t be sure. It seems that lichen is not well preserved in the fossil record.

A personal relationship with Bigfoot

In a recent Youtube video which has now been removed, a psychologist understands that Bigfoot is not just an undiscovered primate. However, he falls for the idea of having a “relationship” with Bigfoot, and opens himself up to what the ancient pagans interacted with as their “gods.”  This book is another instance of that phenomenon. The materialistic view of Dr. Jeff Meldrum and the so-called “scientific” Bigfooters of looking for nothing but an animal that can be described by science may not yield satisfactory results, but it IS safer. It avoids opening yourself to possession by devils.

 

Pokemon sirens

Screen Shot 2016-07-15 at 12.37.49 PMThis news article about two men falling off a cliff playing Pokemon Go is evidence that the modern world is returning to paganism. The “Pokemon” are playing the role of the ancient “sirens,” spiritual beings who lure men to their deaths. Now that Chrisitianity is being abandoned, the devils are gaining more power over men. This does not require any mysterious action of magic; all that is required is for people to focus on the virtual beings instead of paying attention to dangers in their vicinity.

Pokemon Go is a worldly temptation that can be deadly for the inattentive. It has only been out for a week or so and the Pokemon are already luring people to their deaths.

The men did not die, but that is not the fault of the Pokemon. That is the mercy of God not allowing the Pokemon to kill them–this time at least.

It doesn’t matter that the Pokemon are not “real.” They are something that can lure men to their deaths, as this episode proves. Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, as Arthur C. Clarke used to say.

// By the fourth century, when pagan beliefs were overtaken by Christianity, belief in literal sirens was discouraged. Although Jerome, who produced the Latin Vulgate version of the Scriptures, used the word “sirens” to translate Hebrew tannīm (jackals) in Isaiah 13:22, and also to translate a word for “owls” in Jeremiah 50:39, this was explained by Ambrose to be a mere symbol or allegory for worldly temptations, and not an endorsement of the Greek myth. // –Wikipedia

SETI wants money to find devils

144708827244244The SETI group is bitter that they are not being funded by the government so they can find devils in outer space and bring them to earth to save humanity from God. Christ is the only one who can save humanity from the just wrath of God caused by its rebellion against Him, by Jesus’ death to provide an alien righteousness from God for those who trust what He provides, and do not claim to be good enough by their own efforts and good deeds.
