Posts Tagged ‘Italy Earthquake’

Another earthquake has victimized Italy. Was it a natural occurrence?  Could the earthquake have been caused by some manmade scientific experiment? We are not the only one’s pointing out the unusualness of this particular earthquake.  From Discovery News-

A strong and unusually shallow earthquake struck northern Italy over the weekend, fracturing pavement, sending torrents of brick and rubble raining down from buildings, and killing seven people. The powerful shaking was a first for the region in centuries — and fairly surprising to seismologists. Data indicate the magnitude 6.0 quake, which struck just after 4 a.m. local time on Sunday (May 20), just north of Bologna, was a thrust quake — the type of earthquake caused when two tectonic plates smash together — yet it occurred at a depth of just 3 miles (5 kilometers).

“It is kind of surprising that it’s that shallow, because it’s pretty far from the plate boundary,” said Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey. “Normally we expect things to get deeper as they move northward,” he told OurAmazingPlanet.

Well you know what else is shallow that runs from the town of  l’Aquila, east of Rome in the beautiful mountainous Abruzzi region in Italy, home of the San Grasso National Laboratory, all the way to CERN in Sweden?

PROJECT OPERA and A NEUTRINO BEAM!

The quake hit about 470 miles (750 km) north of the plate boundary — the place where the two colliding plates meet — which runs along the sole of Italy’s “boot.”

According to OPERA the beam runs approximately 11.5 km underground and by the looks of things pretty damned close to the epicenter near Bologna, Italy.  The Large Hadron Collider goes on and off as do many neutrino and lab experiments.  We just wonder what may have been operating on May 20, 2012?

HAARP has been jumping like it a flea on a camel’s ass lately.  Here is what came up for the search of May 20, 2012.

The next day, May 21, 2012 about 10 miles away was another earthquake. 4.5M and  little deeper at  http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/usb0009uhq#summary

The Haiti Earthquake was imminent.  Did they know it and not tell anyone?

“Recent research and observation have shown that the process of seismogenesis is not completely random — earthquakes tend to be localized in space, primarily on plate boundaries, and seem to be clustered in time more than would be expected for a random process.”  http://www.nature.com/nature/debates/earthquake/equake_frameset.html

Scientists who detected worrisome signs of growing stresses in the fault that unleashed this week’s devastating earthquake in Haiti said they warned officials there two years ago that their country was ripe for a major earthquake. Their sobering findings, presented during a geological conference in March 2008 and at meetings two months later, showed that the fault was capable of causing a 7.2-magnitude earthquake — slightly stronger than Tuesday’s 7.0 quake that rocked the impoverished country.  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100115/ap_on_re_us/us_haiti_earthquake_warning;_ylt=Am6c.rU89Pyw2Tu4jMA7kDOs0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTNzbW9zdXNoBGFzc2V0A2FwLzIwMTAwMTE1L3VzX2hhaXRpX2VhcnRocXVha2Vfd2FybmluZwRjY29kZQNtb3N0cG9wdWxhcgRjcG9zAzMEcG9zAzEzBHB0A2hvbWVfY29rZQRzZWMDeW5fdG9wX3N0b3J5BHNsawNzY2llbnRpc3Rzd2E

24 hours before the Haiti Quake this earthquake warning was issued by Astrotometry at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwHwzqZg9M4 

Northern Hemisphere Earthquake Watch Until January 16th.  Entering a period of intense earthquake activity.  Astrotometry of recent holes in the solar corona indicate upcoming inconsistencies in the Earth’s hypertime translation. During the period January 11th to January 16th a very strong seismic event above 7.7 in magnitude is probable and several seismic events above 6 in magnitude are expected in the Northern Hemisphere.  Based on correlated cloud patterns, in order of probability, the quake-prone watch regions most likely to be effected are:

Indonesia
California
West Central Asia
Southeastern Europe (near Greece or Italy)
Hawaii

It’s probable that more than one region in the Northern Hemisphere will be effected during this period.  A separate coronal hole indicates a quake of lesser magnitude in the Solomon islands region in the Southern Hemisphere near the end of the watch period or shortly after.

http://neic.usgs.gov/neis/qed/  lists earthquakes that occurred in the same period, including Haiti.  

Pretty damned accurate, eh?

Giampaolo Giuliani, an expert at the Gran Sasso national laboratory, had  warned the authorities a week before the earthquake about some seismic activity he had been detecting in Central Italy but he was ignored by all but a few believers. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/08/italy-earthquake-warnings-by-giampaolo-guiliani-dismissed/

There’s a 100 percent chance of an earthquake today. Though millions of persons may never experience an earthquake, they are very common occurrences on this planet. So today — somewhere — an earthquake will occur.http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/topics/100_chance.php

Let us remind you that the U.S. government was running drills- allegedly in the event a hurricane were to hit Haiti, just the day prior to the quake.  In light of the United States government SOUTHCOM and the Defense Department’s European Command,  ”preparing for a test of the system in a scenario that involved providing relief to Haiti in the wake of a hurricane. After the earthquake hit on Tuesday, Demay said SOUTHCOM decided to go live with the system.”   https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/22/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-southcom-drill-prior-to-quake-reminiscent-of-911/

Another prediction or coincidence?

This morning another 6+ quake. A 7.8 magnitude earthquake occurred in the Torres Islands, Vanuatu area on Thursday, October 08, 2009  The earthquake occurred near the boundary between the Australia and Pacific plates. http://geology.com/news/2009/7-8-m-vanatu-earthquake-and-tsunami-warning.shtml

In a little known study outside the scientific world:  HAARP One- Hop Experiment The South Pacific Buoy, deployed April 2004. HAARP BUOY

The program will study radio waves generated by the HAARP transmitter in Alaska. We expect some waves to be ducted along the earth’s magnetic field lines – propagating out beyond five times the earth’s radius and returning to earth at a remote location in the South Pacific Ocean….  {the South Pacific is a hot bed of Seismic Activity} These waves will propagate through several important physical layers beyond the earth’s atmosphere. By operating a receiver at the magnetic conjugate point where the waves are most likely to return to earth, we will develop significant scientific understanding of those layers and the processes that affect them.http://www-star.stanford.edu/~vlf/buoy/ 

With props to http://blacklistednews.com/?news_id=5975,  An experiment that fires powerful radio waves into the sky has created a patch of ‘artificial ionosphere’, mimicking the uppermost portion of Earth’s atmosphere.  It has spent nearly two decades using radio waves to probe Earth’s magnetic field and ionosphere. HAARP’s high-frequency radio waves can accelerate electrons in the atmosphere, increasing the energy of their collisions and creating a glow.

February 2008, HAARP induced a strange bulls eye pattern in the night sky. Instead of the expected fuzzy, doughnut-shaped blob, surprising irregular luminescent bands radiated out from the centre of the bulls eye, according to Todd Pedersen, a research physicist at the US Air Force Research Laboratory in Massachusetts, who leads the team that ran the experiment at HAARP. The team modelled how the energy sent skywards from the HAARP antenna array would trigger these odd shapes. They determined that the areas of the bullseye with strange light patterns were in regions of denser, partially ionized gas in the atmosphere, as measured by ground-based high-frequency radar used to track the ionosphere.

“The novelty is not seeing the aurora – it’s the fact that we can actually create enough high-energy electrons to form plasma,” said Mike Kosch, chair of Experimental Space Science at Lancaster University, UK. “It shows something completely different and new that we hadn’t expected. We didn’t know we could do that from a radio array on the ground,” he added.Original source by http://www.britainnews.net/story/550358

Let’s take a look back to earthquakes from February 2008; the same period of time HAARP was making artificial plasma: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/eqinthenews/2008/

    Jan- Feb- China winter storms kill 130 people, desert covered with snow for the first time. ”  these winter storms in China have been mainly related to abnormal atmospheric circulation. http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2008-02/18/content_6464154.htm via WIKI

    Feb 5,6- Super Tuesday Tornado Eighty-seven tornadoes occurred over the course of the outbreak, which lasted over 15 hours from the afternoon of February 5 until the early morning of February 6. The storm system produced several destructive tornadoes in heavily populated areas.http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/weather/02/06/tornadoes/index.html

    Feb 6-  Tungurahua, the “Throat of Fire” volcano in Ecuador experiences a  major eruption.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tungurahua

    Feb 28-A shutdown at the Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Station causes a loss of electricity for millions for millions in Florida. http://www.reuters.com/article/rbssFinancialServicesAndRealEstateNews/idUSN2636006520080226  “Some sort of “disturbance” in the power grid forced the Turkey Point nuclear plant in south Florida to go into an emergency shutdown…Officials called it a domino chain of blackouts. 

    Ten significant seismic events, unusual weather patterns, and volcanic eruptions, nuclear power outages.  All in February of 2008,  all the while HAARP messes with the ionosphere.   Are we beginning to see a pattern here?

    After the 1930 Idu Peninsula earthquake in Japan, for example, researchers collected over 1500 reports of unknown lights. And the Tangshan earthquake in China on 28th July 1976 was accompanied by a “colorful, flashing light display [that] was seen in the sky 200 miles away” In 1988 and 1999, the Saguenay region of Quebec had thirty eight instances of EQL activity,

    1. Seismic lightning (no thunder);
    2. Luminous bands in atmosphere;
    3. Globular incandescent masses;
    4. Fire tongues, small mobile flames near the ground, like Will-o’-the wisps; and
    5. Flames emerging from the ground.  http://inamidst.com/lights/earthquake

    HAARP CHINA SKY2

    Just before the earthquake struck Sichuan province in China, there were odd visual disturbances and they were caught film and tape.  One puzzle is that the colors in the Chinese clouds were upside down from a normal circumzenithal halo – red pointing toward the horizon and blue to wards the Sun, instead of the other way round.  

    Let me reiterate the Stanford University Article:

    HAARP’s high-frequency radio waves can accelerate electrons in the atmosphere, increasing the energy of their collisions and creating a glow

    Just to throw in climate change, which is not weather the U.S. is presently covered with about 20% of snow.  We personally skipped the killing frost, and went right to snow.  Since October 10th the coverage has increased from 13.2% of the USA covered by snow. http://www.prisonplanet.com/early-start-to-winter-%E2%89%8820-of-usa-is-covered-in-snow-already.html

    If HAARP is in some sort of collusion with global warming,  it is failing miserably over portions of the U.S.

    iran small globe

    Tsunamis, Typhoons, Flooding, Earthquakes, Droughts, Floods, Diseases and Pestilence.  It is beginning to feel like the Book of Revelations from the Bible. We are once again reminded of :

    Mathew 24- 6- And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that ye be not troubled: for these things must needs come to pass; but the end is not yet.7- For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines and earthquakes.

    Coming from a place where for all intents and purposes, it’s leader is a whack job who wants to destroy Israel, is little old Iran.  The country might want to rock and roll with its newly discovered nuclear weapons capability, but today Iran was rocked hard in the latest of a series of world wide earthquakes.

    Earthquake Details

    Magnitude 5.2
    Date-Time
    Location 31.763°N, 49.675°E
    Depth 10 km (6.2 miles) set by location program
    Region WESTERN IRAN
    Distances 105 km (65 miles) ENE of Ahvaz, Iran
    135 km (85 miles) ESE of Dezful, Iran
    210 km (130 miles) NE of Abadan, Iran
    465 km (285 miles) SSW of TEHRAN, Iran

     That would put the time at  Sunday, October 04, 2009 at 05:50:50 PM (EDT) – Eastern Daylight (New York, Toronto). 

    All is not quiet in American Samoa either who also was dealt a 5.4 magnitude quake earlier today.

    In the Philippines after being blasted with a typhoon for the last few days, got shaken up rather abruptly in its clean up and search and rescue mission when a  6.6 mag hit today.

    MAP  6.6   2009/10/04 10:58:01    6.721    123.480  630.5   MORO GULF, MINDANAO, PHILIPPINES

     I am far from an expert.  Is there patterns of destruction all across the globe?  Are they recognizably connected? 

    What is causing the sudden and drastic increase of incidences and magnitude?

    Far removed from Iran, yesterday Taiwan had a 6.1 magnitude quake.

    I’d expect an increase in volcanic activity and sure as shit Russia and Indonesia are reporting new volcanic activity.   http://www.volcano.si.edu/reports/usgs/index.cfm?content=worldmap 

    North America, battling an H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic has also had its fair share of rattling.  Yesterday, October 3 saw 38 earthquakes in California.  The largest in magnitude (148 miles) W (276°) from Las Vegas was a 5.2 on the Richter scale.  Did the slot machines pay out a little extra feeling the vibrations from the earth?

    The eastern coast was not spared either. 

    A micro-earthquake hit North Carolina Saturday.  The temblor measured magnitude 2.5 and was situated at 35.301°N, 82.500°W. The hypocentral depth of the earthquake was set at 3.2 miles. The earthquake occurred in the same vicinity as a 3.1 magnitude earthquake in December of 2007. http://www.opinionbug.com/5308/micro-earthquake-hits-north-carolina/

     “The earthquake killed over 1,000 on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia, the typhoon killed over 300 in the Philippines, Vietnam and Cambodia, flooding killed over 200 in India, and a tsunami left at least 129 dead in Samoa.”http://humanitarianrelief.change.org/blog/view/your_earthquake_typhoon_flooding_tsunami_and_drought_mashup

    “But that’s not to say they’re completely unrelated. A study published just yesterday in Nature found that the earthquake that triggered the monstrous 2004 tsunami was so destructive that it weakened fault lines around the world─reaching all the way to California’s San Andreas Fault, 5,000 miles away. Since then, the researchers say, there has been an “unusually high” number of earthquakes around the world, suggesting that especially big quakes might beget more quakes. What’s more, a California Institute of Technology researcher who studies seismic activity in Asia notes that a cycle of earthquakes in the region that started in 2007 is likely to produce an even bigger disaster sometime in the coming years. ” http://blog.newsweek.com/blogs/wealthofnations/archive/2009/10/01/two-earthquakes-in-two-days-coincidence-connection-conspiracy.aspx

    The way the Earth’s crust and plates are expanding and contracting recently, it may not take years.  It may just be days until we see an earthquake of unparalleled proportion.

    Magnitude 8.0 – SAMOA ISLANDS REGION 09/29/09 http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2009mdbi.php

    Update on workd earthquakes USGS http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php 

    A series of tsunamis smashed into the Pacific island nations of American and Western Samoa killing possibly more than 100 people, destroying villages and injuring hundreds, officials said on Wednesday. U.S. President Barack Obama declared American Samoa, a U.S. territory, a major disaster…  http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/2009/09/29/world/international-us-quake-pacific.html?_r=1&em   and a 7.6 just shook Indonesia.

    There are is no current Tsunami watch, warning or advisory in affect http://www.prh.noaa.gov/ptwc/.   Tsunami warnings generally indicate that one is required to run like a bat of hell.  Coast lines up to 1000 kilometers away can be subject to not only giant waves, but changes in sea levels and strong or unusual currents. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,557462,00.html has a short report on earthquakes and tsunamis and how they work.The Indian Ocean tsunami on December 26, 2004, which killed about 230,000 people across 11 countries, was the worst on record.http://thewere42.wordpress.com/2009/09/30/tsunami-warning-signs-facts-in-wake-of-samoa-quake/ has some interesting facts too.

     Castle_Bravo_Blast

     

    The earth’s plates shift all the time naturally, but what else could cause the earth to shake, rattle and roll?  HARRP and its Harmonics, CERN messing around with particle physics testing, and underground nuclear testing must have some effect and could appear as an explanation of an increase in the frequency and magnitude of earthquakes.

    The official HAARP facility is located in Gakuna, Alaska.  This theory claims that HAARP could be used as directed-energy weapon, weather control, an earthquake induction device and/or for mind control http://www.viewzone.com/haarp11.html It is working in excellent condition if the increase of earthquakes is any indication. 

    Project Opera collects neutrinos from the CERN particle physics lab in Geneva to the Gran Sasso underground in central Italy and around the world. The Gran Sasso National Laboratory-LNGS, is located near the heart of the April 2009,  L’Aquila earthquake epicenter. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi marked his 73rd birthday in L’Aquila yesterday. It’s Large Hadron Collider is a huge scientific undertaking that collides tiny fragments of matter head on to unravel the fundamental laws of nature.  Could the power density have shifted off course and fundamentally caused these  earthquakes? 

    In  2008, CERN spins up the world’s largest atom smasher over in Switzerland, and we get four magnitude 6+ earthquakes within 24 hours. http://www.worldwide-disasters.com/?p=366

    • Southern Iran1100 GMT, 10 Sept – Magnitude 6.1 (BBC News | USGS)
    • Mid-Atlantic ridge1308 GMT, 10 Sept – Magnitude 6.6 (USGS)
    • Indonesian Moluccas islands0002 GMT, 11 Sept – Magnitude 6.6 (BBC News | USGS)
    • Hokkaido, Japan0021 GMT, 11 Sept – Magnitude 6.9 (BBC News | USGS)

    The end this day will tell how many more earthquakes occur.

    Referring to the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty,  “Major nuclear powers, including the United States, have observed moratoriums on testing since the 1990s, but India, Pakistan and North Korea all have tested bombs since the treaty was negotiated and opened for signatures in 1996.  The treaty has been signed by 181 countries and ratified by 149, but it cannot take effect until it is ratified by nine key holdouts — the U.S., China, North Korea, Iran, Israel, India, Pakistan, Indonesia and Egypt.”  http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hGEa5e_fQbqd78In1-kT2aooCuvQD9AQ5V9O2  Was someone testing in the area?

    Not far from the Samoa Island Region lies the Marshall Islands,  the site of the Pacific Proving Grounds where the U.S. tested 66 nuclear weapons including the largest nuclear test the US ever conducted- Castle Bravo yielding 15 megatons. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_Bravo In terms of TNT tonnage equivalence, Castle Bravo was about 1,200 times more powerful than the atomic bombs which were Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during WWII.  

    The Marshall islands today, continues to primarily function as a test facility for U.S. missile defense and space research programs. The Reagan Test Site is under the command of the US Army Kwajalein Atoll, or USAKA.   http://www.smdc.army.mil/RTS.html Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site (RTS)  provides a Major Range Test Facility Base (MRTFB) activity on Kwajalein Atoll & Wake Island to support testing of theatre and ballistic missiles and interceptors.

    Rather an important job with North Korea and Iran jabbing the world with missile tests and the threat of nuclear attack.

    Just for target practice- from Reuters  earlier this year http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090629/ap_on_re_us/us_missile_test The Air Force successfully launched an unarmed Minuteman 3 ICBM from a Vandenberg Air Force Base in California base, firing it to targets in the Pacific Ocean, it carried three unarmed re-entry vehicles that hit their targets near the Kwajalein Atoll, some 4,200 miles away. 

    The Kwajalein Mission Control Center (KMCC) provides the central control, command, communications, and computing essential for directing the realtime data collection efforts of the RTS sensors.  A high bandwidth submarine fiber optic transmission system provides encrypted connectivity between KMCC and the entire range complex.  KMCC processes realtime state vector data from radar tracks using target complex processing algorithms to determine the best choice cueing data for each sensor.  With its exceptional computational capabilities, KMCC is able to distribute realtime data to land, sea, or airborne mobile sensors deployed to support testing at RTS, as well as to CONUS based testbeds and simulation centers via satellite link.           http://www.smdc.army.mil/KWAJ/KMCC.html     

    Another, unincorporated territory of the United States is the North Pacific Ocean is The Johnston Atoll,  2.8 km²at 16°45′ N 169°30′ W, about one-third of the way from Hawaii to the Marshall Islands.  The area was a U.S. nuclear weapons test site and later the site of the Johnston Atoll Chemical Agent Disposal System (JACADS). The island is not open to the public so we have no idea what, if anything goes on there.  I’d suspect water damage being as the epicenter was pretty close at 172.093°W.   Additional nuclear test facilities can be found here http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlcat50/Nuclear-Facilities,-Test-Ranges.htm .

    These are just a few of the theories on earthquakes from us, Wiki has compiled a longer list –http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_conspiracy_theories . 

    It is no conspiracy or secret that the area plays an important role in maintaining the security of  The U.S. and that in fact, this will not be the last earthquake or tsunami to devastate the pacific region, asia or other areas of the world.   

    Ironically, on Monday, The U.S. Geological Survey awarded grants to thirteen universities, are receiving a total of $5 million in stimulus money to upgrade earthquake monitoring networks.http://stlouis.bizjournals.com/stlouis/stories/2009/09/28/daily2.html

    Lots of potentials for the end of the world- with or without a New World Order.   Maybe we’ll run out of Oxygen, the oceans will melt into the earths mantle, global warming will kill us all, or a nuke will zap us.  Sir David Attenborough believes that a “frightening explosion in human numbers” is behind every threat to wildlife across the world. But,  http://enemiesofprogress.blogspot.com/2009/04/david-attenborough-has-become-patron-of.html poignantly notes that  “progress and technology – without artificial limits – that can raise people’s capacity to thrive,” and I concur.

    The North Koreans are sure doing whatever possible for their own sustainability by walking out on disarmament talks.  The ministry said it would “strengthen its nuclear deterrent for its defense by all means” and would restore its partially disabled Yongbyon nuclear reactor – the fuel source for its 2006 atomic test.

    While countries are in search of  power not only politically and militarily, the search for energy power continues toward what Star Trek science fiction has been showing us all along.  Scientists have been working on “Nanogenerators could allow people to power their iPods and other portable electronics just by walking.”–scienceNOW http://sciencenow.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/2009/326/2 

    Forget about winding a wristwatch or powering up a laptop- how about propulsion!  Transport pods that could take you from New York to China in minutes.  Interstellar visits to the moon, the Milky Way and galaxies yet discovered?  I don’t have the energy to think of all the possibilities, but  The Tau Zero Foundation encourages missions based on known physics and rigorous examination of possible ‘breakthrough’ concepts.  http://www.tauzero.aero/

    Project Daedalus, done in the mid 70’s ( http://www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/D/Daedalus.html)  remains the most detailed study of an interstellar vehicle or probe ever attempted. The 54,000 ton two-stage vehicle was to be powered by inertial confinement fusion using electron beams to compress deuterium/helium-3 fusion capsules to ignition to reach Barnard’s Star. For those of us who are not scientists, this translates to nuclear fission (I think)!  A powerful magnetic field would have confined the explosions created at thrust and lift off.  No one built Daedalus.  30 years later, the effort is being reincarnated  in Project Icarus: Son of Daedalus. source-  http://www.centauri-dreams.org/?p=7164 

    With nano research weight we are not talking housands of tons for the weight of propulsion, but hundreds of grams.  We can not keep track of nuclear waste, let alone something the size of a pack of cigarettes or smaller in the hands of terrorists. But we are not being held captive in our desire for the edge of knowledge,  labs around the world are doing research, experiments and applications.

    From AGOR to the Yerevan Physics Institute a partial list of labs can be found at  http://home.earthlink.net/~whittum/vl/labs.html .  Maybe we don’t need the terrorists help to end the world or cause disasters at all.  In my post, https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/06/italy-earthquake-epicenter-near-nuclear-physics-lab/ I asked if  the recent earthquake in Italy was caused by a physics experiment gone awry or perhaps something aimed at or away from The Gran Sasso National Laboratory to CERN. 

    According to Symmetry Magazine, http://www.symmetrymagazine.org/breaking/2009/04/01/particles-attempt-lab-takeover/ in April, the Fermi lab temporarily halted Tevatron operations when a batch of particles broke free from the accelerator and staged a coup at the laboratory.  Escaped particles seized control of the Remote Operations Center and attempted to contact compatriots in the Large Hadron Collider. Fortunately for CERN, the only particles present were a group of passing cosmic rays. Okay, so it happened on April 1st, but I am no April Fool to think that scientists have full control over science. 

    Luckily http://www.strings.musser.com/Strings/Welcome.html Scientific American writer/author George Musser has published: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to String Theory where physics is explained an easily assimilated way and also why super strings physics matter at all.  A great interview Musser is here http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/18790.

    In searching for the origins of the big bang, finding a replacement for the energizer bunny and predicting earthquakes; Physics.org keeps us up to date on experiments like The Physics of Pizza Toppings http://www.physorg.com/news158491566.html .  Until the end of the world, if it ever happens at all, man’s got to eat.  Might as well explain it with physics!

    The wars of religion vs science and capitalism vs socialism continue.  As we prepare to celebrate Easter and Passover, is it possible that we will see a continuation of divergence?  Can we hope that it is possible that these battles will end, and we can all play nicely together?

    Keith Lockitch, Ph.D. in physics, and a fellow at the Ayn Rand Institute in Irvine, CA wrote, “At first glance, this seems to exemplify a kind of harmony between religion and science, a peaceful concord between faith and reason. Indeed, a variety of public figures—from prominent scientists to the Pope—have promoted the view that science and religion are not adversaries but complementary and mutually supporting fields. “Truth cannot contradict truth,” they declare, implying that the truths discovered by reasoning from sensory evidence cannot clash with the “truths” of religious dogma.” http://www.capmag.com/article.asp?ID=5139

    Truths do contradict truths, everyday. Reality and truth are only what you perceive and believe in. 

    Religions of the world argue and fight in the name of God.  Scientists argue over Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, although the book Finding God in The Heat of The Battle, David J. Turell writes of discoveries that logically God exists, beyond a reasonable doubt. http://sciencevsreligion.net/  Even The Vatican is clarifying that Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution is compatible with its doctrine after all!   

    Evolution opponents are adapting. Now that “intelligent design” and “creation science” have failed in court, the new catch phrase, the New York Times reports, is “strengths and weaknesses.” It might seem innocuous, but critics say it’s yet another tactic to undermine the teaching of evolution in schools. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/04/us/04evolution.html?_r=1  Lest you forget, global warming is also taught in school along with abstinence.

    Father Giuseppe Tanzella-Nitti, Professor of Theology at the Pontifical Santa Croce University in Rome says, As for the Origins of Man, although we shared 97 per cent of our “genetic inheritance” with apes, the remaining 3 per cent “is what makes us unique”, including religion. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/comment/faith/article5705331.ece  More monkey business will be discussed at  a papal-backed conference next month marking the 150th anniversary of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species.  Rembrandt’s masterpiece “The Three Crosses”, is a stunning depiction of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. http://www.rightpundits.com/?p=3707 

    The Foundation for Scientific Research, an Islamic creationist group is widely disseminating a 13 pound, 768-page tome that slams evolution and promotes Islam-inflected creationism, the Christian Science Monitor reports. The Council of Europe has issued warnings—particularly to schools—against the “Atlas of Creation,” which has been published in 80 countries and 59 languages.  http://www.csmonitor.com/2007/0803/p01s10-woeu.html

    In L’Aquila, Italy, an open- air funeral Mass was held Good Friday to remember victims of Italy’s most devastating earthquake in a generation.  The 6.3-magnitude quake that killed at least 290 people and left nearly 40,000 homeless was preceded with science backed warnings by Giampaolo Guiliani.  The government dismissed his predictions based on seismographic evidence.  Pope Benedict XVI urged survivors not to give up, praying at the end of the Good Friday torch-led Way of the Cross procession at the Colosseum that they may see the “star of hope.”

    Turning toward hope for the future and the change Obama professed, the recent polls from Rasmussen say only 53% of Americans believe capitalism is better than socialism.  The youth have a romanticized view of culturally superior European values while, we are witnessing a  modern liberal assault on Constitution-based values in the U.S.  Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto argues for capitalism over socialism far better than I.  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1416562850?ie=UTF8&tag=punpun-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=1789&creativeASIN=1416562850

    While Santa Clause is based on a real human being, The Easter Bunny is based on a mishmash of Pagan and Christian ideologies.  The History of  The Easter Bunny can be found at http://www.professorshouse.com/family/holidays/history-easter-bunny.aspx.   Rather than representing the time frame and the events revolving around Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection, The Easter Bunny spawns a frenzy of capitalism with gifts like new bicycles, scooters, digital camera, i-phones, mingling in with some chocolate, and of course hard boiled eggs.   I hope we see a bounce in the Consumer Goods Index on The Dow- we can credit The Easter Bunny and not Obama!

    The White House will hold the 2009 Easter Egg roll on Monday with environmentally friendly, recyclable Easter Eggs. http://features.csmonitor.com/politics/2009/04/09/white-house-unveils-recyclable-egg/

    Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on its way- and maybe religious free socialism too.  Behold your king.
