1929 poster

1929 poster

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.

My previous post at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/06/italy-earthquake-epicenter-near-nuclear-physics-lab/ questioned the experiments that occur at The Gran Sasso National Laboratory- home of The National Institute of Physics.  LNGS is located about 120 km from from Rome near the town of L’Aquila inside the Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga– pretty much ground zero for this weeks 6+ earthquake.

Earthquakes by and large, are not that unusual.  It is not everyday that the ground unleashes its fury so close where experiments in nuclear astroparticle physics and nuclear astrophysics occur.  My head tilts a bit.  I put on my tin foil hat to listen my own inner harmonics that make me question the forces of natural and unnatural events.

Projects with some cool names like OPERA, LUNA and UNDERSEIS have been ongoing in the academia of Physics at the Lab. http://www.lngs.infn.it/lngs_infn/index.htm?mainRecord=http://www.lngs.infn.it/lngs_infn/contents/lngs_en/research/experiments_scientific_info/ Searching for scientific truths that could explain matters of the world have a high degree of integrity, but at what cost to society? 

ATLAS is a particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. “Starting in Spring 2009, the ATLAS detector will search for new discoveries in the head-on collisions of protons of extraordinarily high energy. ATLAS will learn about the basic forces that have shaped our Universe since the beginning of time and that will determine its fate. Among the possible unknowns are the origin of mass, extra dimensions of space, microscopic black holes, and evidence for dark matter candidates in the Universe. ” http://atlas.ch/   Besides the potential benefit to knowledge, what if the outcomes aren’t acceptable to the norms of society.  Say for example, ATLAS proves the origins of the universe, where does this leave God? 

Would some of these experiments be able to predict natural catastrophes like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunami with complete accuracy?  Disaster Recovery Journal asks,” Is it really possible to save lives and property even with such accurate advance information?  Unfortunately the answer is a big no, ” citing the potential for financial chaos, transport chaos and civil unrest. http://www.drj.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2335&Itemid=419&ed=48  That gives little comfort to the scenes played out in movie thrillers and in our U.S. schools where we are taught to duck and cover under a desk. 

The Recovery Journal offers this rebuttal for warning, “In all probability, the actual disaster may cause less damage than the havoc created by people’s panic because of advance information [warning].”  http://www.drj.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2411&Itemid=419&ed=49 Whew, don’t you feel safer?

Russian scientists speculated that a U.S. strike against China was cause of the earthquake that struck Sichuan province in China, believing “it was  ‘exactly timed’ to coincide with the dangerous experiments ongoing at Large Hadron Collider for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).” http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message556660/pg1

Many of LNGS’s and CERN’s experiments could conceivably alter our fragile, terrestrial ecosystem including the experiments of the Radio Frequency (RF) Waveguide Vacuum Valve.  The device enables low-loss RF power transmission in a waveguide across a gap, where a liftable instrument is positioned. http://technologytransfr.web.cern.ch/TechnologyTransfer/en/Technology/VacuumValve.html Could a strong enough wave transmission from CERN to LNGS have caused the earthquake?

The New York Times author, Dennis Overbye  reported that, “Whatever forms of matter and whatever laws and forces held sway Back Then — relics not seen in this part of space since the universe cooled 14 billion years ago — will spring fleetingly to life, over and over again in all their possible variations, as if the universe were enacting its own version of the “Groundhog Day” movie. If all goes well, they will leave their footprints in mountains of hardware and computer memory.”  http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/15/science/15cern.html?ex=1336881600&en=7825f6702d7071e7&ei=5090&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss

“We are now on the endgame,” said Lyn Evans director of CERN. 

Does the endgame include a reign of manmade catastrophes like this weeks earthquakes?  

Most noble experiements indeed.

 Experiments at Gran Sasso National Laboratory- Italy. 

underseis

 In this mornings post, I took  into account HAARP’s potential at causing catastrophes from tsunamis to earthquakes.  Having family in the central area of Italy, I took a closer look at the regions and providences and found that  The National Institute of Physics at The Gran Sasso National Laboratory-LNGS, is located near the heart of the earthquakes epicenter! 

Taking a complete conspiracy guess, maybe it wasn’t a natural occurrence or an incidence of HAARP.  Was the seismic event caused by an experiment gone awry or perhaps something aimed at or away from The Gran Sasso National Laboratory? 

LNGS is located about 120 km from from Rome near the town of L’Aquila inside the Parco Nazionale del Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga. The underground facilities are located along a freeway tunnel crossing the Gran Sasso Mountain.  The lab was/ is expected to host the prestigious Nuclear Physics in Astrophysics IV  NPAIV  in May http://npa4.lngs.infn.it/Poster_NPAIV.pdf

 The SGNL is  an physicists dream of experiments and academia http://www.lngs.infn.it/.   The main mission of the Laboratory is to host experiments that require a low background environment in the field of astroparticle physics and nuclear astrophysics and other disciplines.   

Like many research facilities numerous experiments are ongoing and can be seen at http://www.lngs.infn.it/lngs_infn/index.htm?mainRecord=http://www.lngs.infn.it/lngs_infn/contents/lngs_en/research/experiments_scientific_info/ 

OPERA, collects neutrinos from the CERN particle physics lab in Geneva to the Gran Sasso underground in central Italy, 730 km away.  Neutrinos are elementary particles postulated by Pauli in the 30’s as a “desperate attempt” to save the principle of energy conservation in radioactive beta decays. They have been observed 20 years later emerging from nuclear reactors and, since then, many of their physical properties have been established.  Could a cosmic ray have caused this earthquake or the “storage” limits exceeded capacity causing a seismic shift?  Will there be a higher radioactive reading post earthquake?

I digress that I don’t know enough about cosmic rays but you can find out more about shooting particles, http://www.lngs.infn.it/lngs_infn/index.htm?mainRecord=http://www.lngs.infn.it/lngs_infn/contents/lngs_en/research/experiments_scientific_info/

LUNA -Laboratory for Underground Nuclear Astrophysics is housed at San Grasso.  LUNA was a new experimental approach for the study of nuclear fusion reactions based on an underground accelerator lab. http://luna.lngs.infn.it/ .

Lastly the UNDERSEIS instrument is aimed to monitor seismic radiation with very high sensitivity;  Arrays of seismometers are used to study the Earth structure at global, regional and local scale, earthquake source process, nuclear underground explosions and, more recently, for the analysis of complex signals associated to the volcanic activity.  If it is still operational, the underground arrays must have gone off the charts being near the center of a seismic event.

A forum post at AboveHotAir recently checked out the resonance of the upcoming April 17th ‘peak’ and looked at all the previous times that particular pattern manifested along the timewave. I found it only 4 times over the last 3 million years. We are scheduled to encounter it 3 more times as well before zero point. http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread392386/pg8 

Man made or natural, residents in the city of l’Aquila, east of Rome in the beautiful mountainous Abruzzo region, ran out into the streets in terror with no warning.

I predict with 100% accuracy that they need help and prayer.
