REAL FACT BEHIND SODOM AND GOMORRAH


Volcanic eruptions can’t turn a city into total ash or an Asteroids falling from heaven might leave no trace of a city at all, so it would not be a perfect example for generation to come. God must make a statement that will separate this event from the rest of the Natural Calamity man have witness!
   So is the story of Sodom and Gomorrah true? 


   Time and time again, most unbelievers of The Bible like to point out that what was written therein are just myths and legends concocted by an over obsessive monotheistic group of people. If not blatantly labeled as liars they are either called conspirators who invented an Almighty God that supersede all other human gods. But time and time again also, The Bible had proven its content factual and true.
   The Holy Bible is still the most trustworthy collections of Historical fact and prophetically undisputed event declared long before they were experienced. In this blog I had constantly proves (although not me but the fact itself) the authenticity and error-free statement of both The New and Old Testament despite the popular beliefs that most of its claims are too audacious. Sometimes even Christians themselves tend to sway from the world views when it comes to miracles and outrageous event.
   Like for instance what happened in Sodom and Gomorrah. Most of the people like to accept a more scientific answer as to what occurred there. The exceptional story of Sodom and Gomorrah CLAIMS that fire came down from heaven to incinerate entire cities. Burning an entire city with Brimstone (ancient for Sulfur) and Fire that fell from the sky seems out of this world and naturally impossible to happen, therefore most Scientist like to dismiss this idea and reduce the story into some kind of volcanic eruptions…not heavenly by origin as the Bible states.
   So if we accept their “fact” base on logical instances then it means the Bible is not factual at all. Like watching National Geographic telling us by “reasons” or probable causes that the 7 plagues that happened in Egypt during Exodus was a Natural phenomenon and can be explained. Therefore, Moses was just at the right place at the right time. Was it all just LUCK? Are Biblical prophet’s predictions just mere chance?
   In these latest findings of specific event from the past proves the Bible is not a collection of Myth but Historically correct and truthful rendition of real events. Let us re-examined Sodom and Gomorrah, curse cities, who the Bible states was so corrupt it must be reduce into ash. Even Divine forbearance can not tolerate its wickedness and have even reached the limits of God’s patience.  

AN EXAMPLE FOR ALL GENERATIONS
Jude 1:7
King James Version (KJV)
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

   When we want to stress a point, we shout and sometimes go hysterical to attract or capture the attention of the concern person. Now when God proclaimed that He will make Sodom and Gomorrah an example to all the Nations who have committed an unspeakable sin, would He just make one gigantic superheated volcano erupts?
   Obviously, ancient Kingdoms and Tribes had seen volcanic eruptions before perhaps even greater than our generation’s Mount St. Helen’s eruptions or Mt. Pinatubo ash fall…They were so horrific and traumatic of course to eyewitnesses and no doubt some can even equate them as divine judgment but when God said He will make this specific action in Sodom as an “Example for all generations” then it must be so. 
   Volcanic eruptions can’t turn a city into ash and or Asteroids falling from heaven can leave no trace of a city, so it would not be a perfect example for generation to come. God must make a statement that will separate this event from the rest of the Natural Calamity ever recorded!
   Noah’s flood were outrageous, but geological proof that a worldwide flood did happen somewhere in the past. So what makes Sodom and Gomorrah a standout among ancient ruins? What can we discover on its remains that will give as reason to believe that indeed it is supernatural by origin? 

The Unique Evidences 


Out of this World Sulfur Balls…The familiar sulfur that we can find in geothermal regions are commonly bright “yellow” in coloration and in rhombic form.
   Now by contrast the sulfur that we can find in the Dead Sea Valley Site is extremely rare and well in fact can only be found in this one and only area in the world. The pale white “monoclinic” form Sulfur of this type can only happen after an extended period of exposure to an extremely high temperature.
   X-ray fluorescence Semiquant analysis and other test reveals that it is 98.4% pure sulphur. Meaning, it is more pure that the naturally occurring sulphur.
Genesis 19:24
English Standard Version (ESV)
24 Then the Lord rained on Sodom and Gomorrah sulfur and fire from the Lord out of heaven.

Structures dried like deposits…Volcanism as what was earlier suggested can not create an aftermath like that. Some details are still discernable but were totally turn to some sort of mineral deposits. No natural calamity resembles the fossilized records of the Dead Sea Valley sites and obviously no other explanation is better that what was written in Genesis 19:24 and 2 Peter 2:6. For example what happened in Pompeii when Mt. Vesuvius explode…we can still see paintings intact and in pristine condition inside the houses. On the other hand, what happen in Sodom was utterly impossible by a mere act of Nature. For example there were human skeleton found totally turn into ash, even the marrow and inside parts.
Genesis 19:28
English Standard Version (ESV)
28 And he looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah and toward all the land of the valley, and he looked and, behold, the smoke of the land went up like the smoke of a furnace.


Deuteronomy 29:23

New King James Version (NKJV)
23 ‘The whole land is brimstone, salt, and burning; it is not sown, nor does it bear, nor does any grass grow there, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, which the Lord overthrew in His anger and His wrath.’



   Once a fertile valley, this place is now desolate. To be precise 4 cities made as an example for all generations thereafter. Now if you are still one of those who still doubt the Bible maybe it's about time you re-think your position. The recent calamities that we had been witnessing like earthquake, tsunami, super typhoon might be a last warning from God.
   He is a merciful father but everything on this life has its limit. How long will you turn a deaf ear? RETURN to your father. He is willing to take you to heaven with HIM.
  Amen and All Glory be given back to GOD. 


Proverbs 1: 24-29
24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:

My Province, Laguna...My Home

   I hereby present to you Laguna...my home province and what I had always called my place of refuge. Found this video in YouTube and thought it would be nice to share with my foreign friends. If ever you wish to visit the Philippines you should include my hometown in your itinerary.  




Devil's Cave
Shooting the Rapids in Pagsanjan
Some random trivia about Laguna... The birth place of our National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal. The "Maglalatik" dance originated here. Laguna de Bay is like a giant footprint of a dinosaur and is also the largest lake in the country.  Pagsanjan Falls is really located in the municipality of Cavinti and behind the falls is the mouth of Devil's cave. 

   Laguna is also famous among tourists for the Pagsanjan Falls, the University of the Philippines campus and the hot spring resorts in Los Baños and Calamba, on the slopes of Mount MakilingPila Town Plaza, Taytay Falls, Majayjay, the wood carvings and papier mache created by the people of Paeté, the turumba of Pakil,The Tsinelas footwears in Liliw, the Pandan Festival of Luisiana, the Seven Lakes of San Pablo (San Pablo is the first city in the province) and Hidden Valley Springs in Calauan.

China's Rammed and Ignore

I don't buy the diversion tactic of China. Chinese embassy spokesperson should be more sensitive on people's sentiment. Should we remind China that there are 3 fishermen still missing and one had died...now are they trying to say that these men are liars? And who are they to attack the media instead of sincerely investigate on the issue. 
   It is so heartbreaking to read reactions from China's representative like these:
    The Chinese Embassy has not received any reports of a Chinese vessel colliding with a Philippine boat last week, spokesperson Zhang Hua said.   
   Zhang said “media reports” that an alleged Chinese vessel rammed into a local fishing boat in Bolinao, Pangasinan last June 20 remain to be verified.
   “Upon seeing the stories, the Chinese Embassy immediately checked with the relevant authorities in China and was told that, up until now there have been no reports of vessel collision accident or SOS requests on the reported dates and in the reported waters,” Zhang said.   Zhang added: “We wonder what that news story was based upon. We hope relevant persons can verify the facts with a responsible attitude before they report.” (Source)
    Hello Mr. Zhang! Are you ever reading reports? Just what do you mean by relevant person? And who are the relevant authorities you are talking about? The crooks? Come on!!! 
   Who in their right mind would intentionally rammed a fishing boat and report to "relevant" authorities? You don't ask criminals Mr. Zhang, you investigate on them. 
   Why not conduct an inspection on all the fishing vessel that happen to be around during the alleged collision on that same date and period. Maybe that is possible Mr. Zhang? 
   If the Chinese government is really sincere to appease the rising tension in Scarborough shoals and to cast any doubt of intentional ramming of our poor fishermen's boat, they should at least given us concrete response instead of another allegation. 
THE BAD SAMARITAN?
   The stranded fishermen thought they would get help from a vessel with the "Hong Kong" markings but instead hit their boat which cause the breakage of their small vessel that caused the 8 starving fishermen to plunge into the open seas. Now the 3 fishermen are still not found. Did the Chinese embassy offer help for the search and rescue? They instead blame the media for aggravating the issue. Get real!!! China should stop dictating the act of press freedom and show "relevant" answers instead. 
   Okay there is a possibility that it might not be a Chinese vessel that rammed them. After all, a starving person can hallucinate at seeing "Hong Kong" on any boat. But Chinese spokespersons are too quick on "denial" and counter-strike.
   A rebuttal instead of resolution is the least a guilty person can do to escape blame. To react like that is like admitting a crime. An ambassador should know better.  
HIT and IGNORE
   The Records shows anyway that they don't mind ramming a person to death and ignore. This video will show that Chinese had the tendency to hit an innocent child twice while people just watch as if they don't give a damned. 

Don't Watch if you have a weak heart!!!

As Times Goes By...

Life isn't smooth sailing...you'll meet pirates along the way. 



   How's everyone these past days? It seems the change of season had also changed my mood. Been drifting to less stressful existence, Idyllic ...and it seems the breeze during late afternoon are reverberating a calming effect on me. Was it only me? I heard the chirping of birds lately despite the noises. The more tangible trickle of rain as it splattered on the ground. Maybe because I focused...not allowing myself to be bothered by vanity. 
   I can't really put the right words to express what I am feeling these past days. The Holy Spirit is probably teaching the lessons of calmness...the value of each moment. 
   So how does it feel to live in eternity??

  I took my son's bike and drove around the neighborhood yesterday...something I haven't done for quite a long time. I promised myself to do this more often. Why I haven't done it more often?
   Today...I open my sketch pad and browse...it made me feel much better. Browse all the TV channel and found nothing...looked at the sky...there's a promise of rain...it will be a strong one. 


   Prepared the materials I will use for Tuesday...A face painting for a children's party. Another show on July 4....and speaking of July, I will be a year older on the 10th. And on the same day my sister (Gina) and her family will fly to Canada. I will sure miss her...well, I already miss her now. She's the only sister I have. I mean aside from my other half-sisters; she's the only real sister I had. 
    We don't see each other that much anyway even if she lives in nearby town...but now it's a different thing knowing we're ocean apart. I'm also going to miss her kids. 


   Dolphy, the comedy king is in terminal health. Everyone is clamoring that he be declared a National Artist as soon as possible while he still can enjoy the recognition. How old is he anyway? 80plus? He deserve to be awarded the summit any artist dream of...He is indeed a treasure and the prize should have been given a long time ago. Thanks for making a whole generations of Filipino laugh at his funny antics. 


   WBO said Manny Pacquiao did win over Bradley but the belt stays where it is. How was that?!

The biggest disappointment in the Boxing history.

If you were Bradley would you still accept the belt? Have you not taken anything you don't deserved?


There were some serious accusations of a "fix" during the aftermath of Pacquiao vs. Bradley fight that sports enthusiast and boxing federation officials must not easily dismiss and should focus to resolve as soon as possible.
   What are the kind of negative messages this event is sending to its millions of followers? What kind of morale it would give to our athletes when these kind of "distrust" is happening in a professional boxing arena?
   For me, even if Pacquiao did not knocked down Bradley, it is still one of Pacman's greatest fight. The split decision in favor of Bradley is the biggest disappointment in the Boxing history. 
   Within minutes after the fight the cyberspace are instantly filled with negative remarks against the decision both from fans and experts. There was no euphoric reactions...the public had been robbed.
   Just look at this scenario, it had been claimed that as long as Bradley stay up until the 12th rounds, he is given the guarantee of the belt. What is that suppose to mean? That it is all a money making conspiracy...
   A rematch will definitely draw-in more crowd in Las Vegas come next November, as speculated, if ever there is a rematch. And it is almost guaranteed. 
   Sadly, if there is indeed a "fix" this is a big blow into the institution of sports in general. R.I.P. Boxing was already streaming on twitter by the thousands. They don't really care about sports, it seems to say, all they cared about is money.

   The following are just few of the comment from boxing aficionados and sports analyst:
The bottom line is that if you're an honest man, if you're a competent person that knows what he's watching, Pacquiao won that fight. Only one man won that fight. And he doesn't get the decision.

It's an injustice to the sport, an injustice to the fighters, an injustice to the fan base and it's one of the fallacies…one of the problems with the sport of boxing right now that the wrong guy wins sometimes.
- ESPN boxing analyst Teddy Atlas, on SportsCenter
 I didn't see a single scorecard during the fight that it in Bradley's favor. Not one. And this is the Internet, where anyone with a computer has their own scorecard and a medium with which to vomit it out. -- Adam Hirshfield, Bleacher Report
Bradley should have given the belt and announce victory to pacquiao right after the decision. -- Oscar Dela Hoya
"I had the fight 11 rounds to one in favor of Pacquiao," ESPN boxing expert Dan Rafael said onSportsCenter. "Maybe you can make it 10 to 2 or I'll even give you 9 to 3….Harold Lederman on HBO had it 11 to 1." 



Real Mt. Sinai Revealed

Are We About to meet The Anti-Christ?

'I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle ...' (Zech 14.2)
'I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone ... though all nations of the earth are gathered against it' (Zech 12.3)


   I think people should check this recent article I've found on Express.Co.UK...it seems a chilling fulfillment of Daniel's prophesy that we can read on Daniel chapter 2 and 7. (check the Bible for comparison to this shocking parallel) We are maybe into coming face to face with the Anti-Christ mentioned on Revelations as the man called 666.

   The European Union is planning to scrap Britain?

SENIOR Eurocrats are secretly plotting to create a super-powerful EU president to realise their dream of abolishing ­Britain, we can reveal.
   A covert group of EU foreign ministers has drawn up plans for merging the jobs currently done by Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council, and Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission.
European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and David Cameron 
   The new bureaucrat, who would not be directly elected by voters, is set to get sweeping control over the entire EU and force member countries into ever-greater political and economic union. (Press to Read the full article here)

  23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. (Daniel 7: 23-24)

   Take special notice on "shall subdue three kings" 
   The three nation of Great Britain will be subdued; which are England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. 

   Euro-MP Paul Nuttall, of the UK Independence Party, said: “This is a truly ridiculous idea that must never be allowed to happen. It sounds as if they are trying to go back to the days of the Holy Roman Emperor.”

   Just as what we can read on the book of Daniel, that on the last days there would be a revived Roman Empire. Could it be that 666 stands for United States of Europe? I still haven't fully outlined my own study on this matter, so I'll just be sharing the analogy of Hal Lindsay in the meantime: 

   The prophet Daniel predicted the successive rise of four Gentile world empires. God through Daniel said that these would be the only world empires that would rise before the coming of the Messiah and the establishment of His kingdom over the earth. These kingdoms were Babylon, Media-Persia, Greece and Rome. However, the fourth Kingdom would not be conquered but fade from power until it is miraculously revived again and rule for a little over seven years. Daniel predicts that Rome revive again through the power of a Satan-possessed man that will unite the ten-nations out of the ruins of the old Roman culture and people. His Biblical name is the "Antichrist." Daniel interpreted the prophetic symbols concerning this prophecy: "Thus he said: The fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth (Rome), which will be different from all the other kingdoms, and it will devour the whole earth and tread it down and crush it. As for the ten horns, OUT OF this kingdom (latterday Rome) ten kings will arise, and another (the Antichrist) will arise after them, he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings ..." (Daniel 7:23-24 NASB)   According to this prophecy, Rome would fade from power between verses 23 and 24. Then it would be revived again initially in the form of ten nations out of the culture and people of the old Roman Empire. I believe we are finally seeing the groundwork of that predicted revival of the Roman Empire. Just listen to some electrifying quotes out of a recent article about secret plans being made to change the EU: "Senior Eurocrats are secretly plotting to create a super-powerful EU president to realize their dream of abolishing Britain." ... "Opponents fear the plan could create a modern-day equivalent of the ‘European emperor' envisaged by Napoleon Bonaparte or a return to the Holy Roman Empire of Charlemagne that dominated Europe in the Dark Ages." ... "It sounds as if they are trying to go back to the days of the Holy Roma Emperor." ... "Such a merger would represent a massive shift of power into the hands of a single, unelected bureaucrat ...The holder of this new office would be both Europe's political and administrative leader, giving him far more powers than those given to the US president."   You should read the entire article, but these key quotes reveal the purpose of planned actions that are right of the pages of Bible prophecy concerning the final stages of history before Christ returns. And even more important, they reveal that we are in the immediate general time of Christ secret coming to remove all true Christian believers some seven years before Christ's return to earth in an event known as the Rapture. The appointment of this new leader could be the beginning of the career of the antichrist. People will not fully realize it at the beginning stages. But he is the one that will bring together the revival of Rome and the beginning of the final seven years of this age theologically known as the Tribulation. The proposed removal from the EU of the UK composed of England, Ireland and Scotland could even possibly refer to the predicted removal of three nations in Daniel's above prophecy.   Folks, time is drawing short. It is time for all Christians to focus on bringing as many as possible to faith in Jesus Christ as Savior. It is also time to seek to grow in our faith and stand for Truth of God's Word. Jesus died in our place and purchased a pardon for our sins. We must be sure that we have received that gift and turn to following Him.
   At this stage, I still haven't finished my personal analogy that I had been busy with these past months. As I've said, I'm into the writing and reading stage of a revealing post that I will soon synthesized on this blog. However, the above commentary is also parallel to my own research so far, and therefore I recommend to be taken into our hearts for considerations. 
   What I am researching are the Occult relationship of all these events, from the very root of the problem...to its Satanic origin...The Mystery Babylon. As of now, let us all pray that we may become worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass...
   There are also other article or News headlines that might shed more light to  understand the unfolding event we had on Bible prophesy. 

EU Foreign Ministers Criticise Israel's Activities in West Bank Clearly frustrated by long-stalled peace talks, European Union foreign ministers issued a detailed statement, accusing Israel of accelerating settlement construction and tightening its control over East Jerusalem at the expense of Palestinians.

Where are the Good Samaritans?

   Maybe now I understand why there are not so many good Samaritans out there. I was trying to reflect how easily I have judge people...why people would have second thought in doing what is proper when it should be automatic?
    Some even turn the other way and intentionally avoid  a person having difficulty. I don't blame them...
   Before me and my wife decided to adopt an abandoned Mother and her 2 years old son, there were some hesitations on our part. It's not that we don't want to help but the fear of helping...the fear of trusting. Yet, our heart was heavily burden so we asked God for guidance.

Where are the Good Samaritans?
   Letting a total stranger into your house had been proven fatal to some. There were many cases of robbery and even murder committed by the same people whom the owner of the house trusted and let inside their home. 
   Just a couple of days ago, a woman went to a police station to report a house maid who kidnapped her daughter...I also recall, An old man was killed by his own nephew whom he had given shelter, educations, and everything...Scam and hoaxes are not isolated cases where we had totally given our trust to someone...
   Helping a stranger is like feeding a snake unmindful about the danger of the venom...

   It's not the first time that we had sort of adopt people inside our humble home. Mostly had been only headache...but nonetheless, me and my wife had this soft spot...who would help if we don't? That was our unwritten advocacy even if we don't have a big house for accommodation...even if we are just making both ends meet. People just come and go, some had been bless in their own lives, a family of their own and are now living a prosperous life that sometimes help us too. 

   This time we had a mother and a son in our house. She had been sort of an acquaintance of my wife--she met sometime ago who regularly buy from us our baked Empanada. It so happened that her husband had abandoned them running away with another woman. How can a man be that irresponsible?! It made me really mad...Anyway, she had no relatives here, she's from Mindanao and unemployed...Nothing to pay for the house they are renting. She can't find a job either because no one will take care of her child plus it would be hard for her to be hired because she had trouble walking. It seems the end of the road for her. 
   Last week Bella told me, that she saw her with the child walking aimlessly on the road carrying some scrap materials. She told my wife that she's going to a nearby junk shop to sell some of their things, "For our dinner..." she explained. 
    My heart was broken so I told Bella this: "Okay, you can bring them here..."
   


   So are we just going to close our eyes when we see the opportunity to help others?

Do You Want to Know a Secret?

The Hands that Rocked the Cradle


Come on, admit it, who doesn't want to hear secrets? What are the most read sections of Tabloids and News articles anyway? Isn't it that blind item sections the juiciest part? 
   People are naturally drawn or curious to the unknown.People stop whatever they are doing whenever they overheard gossips. We sometimes participate by asking ""Is it really true?"
   That is why Marketing geniuses employ the proven appeal of the word: Secret. Secret of Success, Secret Ingredients, Secret of the Stars, etc...but the most famous byword of all is what theorist called Secret Society. 

About Those Conspiracy Theories
   Let's get to the point now, is there really a Grand scale Conspiracy going on towards a New World Order? Let us first, clarify the terminology to properly understand the subject in its original context. 
   Remember, Theories are not similar to fable or legend. It is inappropriate to categorized a Conspiracy Theory together with old-wives tale but we do get to hear a lot of people making fun of this belief and maligned the essence of Conspiracy theory. 
   Most of us may actually enjoy the entertainment of a good conspiracy theory, no matter what evilness attached to it, but the general reaction is disbelief. It is natural to be skeptical on everything not within the mainstream But it is also unwise to shut our mind on everything being said about Conspiracy Theory, especially when it made sense. 
    Theories base their assumptions on known or perceivable evidences. A baseless theory is nothing but mere gossips. It doesn't mean however that gossips are all untrue, it simply doesn't have enough data to back-up its claims. 
    Again, theories are inquiry into a shrouded realm. Like for example you suspect certain officials involvement in graft and corruptions because of his unexplained wealth. 
     For a conspiracy to work, you need at least two or more individual conniving on a secret plan like a bank robbery or swore to hide a murder. Conspiracy is more inclined, but not limited to criminal activities. Unacceptable ritual practices by occult group is hidden because it is beyond the norm, therefore it falls into a Conspiracy. What I am saying is that since Conspiracy Theory does not just instantly sprung from nowhere...we should not dismiss all possibilities.

Conflicting Theories
   Skeptics to the theory often points out that there are too many conflicting views about the conspiracy because it doesn't prove any concrete lead to a single entity. For me, it is okay to hold many conflicting views in a single box to determine which one will bind together. I prefer to call it Multiple Theories and not an outright disagreement of fact because if there is indeed a Secret Society out there, it would be obvious that they will conceal facts with variation of alibis and concealment tactics. Conflicting theorist views strengthen the evidence instead of weakening the possibilities.
   It is okay to hold multiple theories together but keep in mind to organized them in a way that we can determine patterns. What doesn't make sense is probably not true. A skeptic should also maintain similar mind-set like that of a theorist. Both should be able to put in order the collections of data before we dismiss grounds that doesn't hold. Pretending to be a Critical Thinker without practicing data encoding is like a lost ship. Before we become skeptical on certain things we should at least consider the said practices mentioned.
Everything Must Have a Motive 
   When a certain piece of information doesn't fit, then it probably belongs to a different set of puzzle. When a data does not fit the Truth then most probably it would fit to the second Truth or the third. Remember, every data leads to somewhere...even if it is a lie. Discovering a hoax is also discovering what is the truth behind. When "Falsified" fact outnumbered the reality in the media, the falsified fact became the reality. 

   There is of course a conspiracy going on somewhere out there, right now...although some may be less dramatic than what was clamored in the media. Yet, the one that was mostly pertained to in this subject is the Secret Society whose plan was to dominate the world, whatever it takes. An organized body of individual with connections to almost everything we know from the government, bank, and even religious institution. 
   Is it therefore possible for certain organization to remain hidden after thousands of years and influence everything we know?


An Example of a Conspiracy
   A look at one of the most famous conspiracy topic is the Assassination of John F. Kennedy. Theorist like to delve into it because of the many unanswered questions behind the murder out in the open...a mystery that still haunt many of us -- even Historians and forensic scientist at certain point categorically speaking became a believer of Secret Society's Conspiracy. The very idea that even a simple observer like you and me, can join the "discussion table" and present our viewpoint is enough to draw us to search for more. 
   The very words of JFK during his last speeches before he was assassinated seems to allude that there is indeed a very powerful organization or individuals that actually controls everything we considered valuable. He speaks of Highly organized mind-control experts. 
   So is it really possible for a single organization who is often referred to as The Mystery Religion, to create every major political crisis, choose each and every world leaders, or even dictate our history's direction?


The Whore of Babylon
   The allegorical organization Babylon The Great, is a Christian belief taken from the Book of Revelation which speaks of an evil figure that dominates the entire world systems. Her full title is given as "Babylon the Great, the Mother of Prostitutes and Abominations of the Earth."
   Although most conspiracy theorist points the finger to this prostitute, it is not an exclusive Christian doctrine. Non-Christians also held parallel perspective but tries to avoid Biblical relationship. 
   That is why the Bible is still one of the most controversial book in the world because of its futuristic  accuracy even if there is an overwhelming unbelievers denial. 


The Bible speaks of a conspiracy?

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. -- Revelations 17

Unraveling the Secrets by Religious Views
   An idea of a single Evil Organization or an Evil Church is no surprise to Christians everywhere. I think even Muslims believe in the same evil power behind world systems. Most act of terrorism (from different Religions) are executed on this religious views. 
   When speaking of an evil group of men it was surprising to Bible reader that Jesus almost put all the blame to Religious leader of His time. Almost exclusively Jesus Christ put the blood-guilt against the Pharisee of Jerusalem, by pointing out the killing of all the prophet and saints (Matthew 23:34–37 and Luke 11:47–51)

Luke 11:47-51
Good News Translation (GNT)
47 How terrible for you! You make fine tombs for the prophets—the very prophets your ancestors murdered.48 You yourselves admit, then, that you approve of what your ancestors did; they murdered the prophets, and you build their tombs.49 For this reason the Wisdom of God said, 
         I will send them prophets and messengers; they will kill some of them and persecute others.50 So the people of this time will be punished for the murder of all the prophets killed since the creation of the world,51 from the murder of Abel to the murder of Zechariah, who was killed between the altar and the Holy Place. Yes, I tell you, the people of this time will be punished for them all!

   The verses clearly points to a single group that  did all of the different crimes generations after generation. Is it a conspiracy? probably not directly or intentional,but in deeper perspective, once we look into the heart of the matter, a code-of-conduct of a certain group can actually fulfill a conspiracy, with or without direct agreement
   Fast forward to our generation. Can we at this generation, pinpoint a single body that hold certain code-of-conduct that can actually trigger a Grand Scale Conspiracy that will eventually lead to New World Order?

   A new order with the agenda of One Government and One Religion? Think for yourself, which and who are these people pushing these agenda? 
   
   Conspiracy Theories will continue to flourish as long as there are many shrouded religious, government and business activities. The simple solution to this would be to stop shrouding many religious, government and business activities in secrecy.
