Counter-Cut

The other day I happened upon an article about global warming entitled, “Mathematician Exposes Global Warming Study Inflating Temp Rise by 600%.”  This is not news.  Frankly, I’ve grown accustomed to scientists simply creating facts out of thin air to “prove” global warming.  So I ignored it.

Then I ran across another article which claimed “’Mini Ice Age’ Looms As NASA Scientist Warns Lack Of Sunspots Could Bring Record Cold.”  That caught my attention, because back in 2012 I had examined the matter and concluded that we should be entering a period of global cooling rather than global warming.  

What really caught my eye in this particular article was the solar activity graphs for the past 30 years and for the past 400 years:  There is a definite downward trend in sunspot activity, and right now we are in the steep decline region of the cycle’s tail.  Since sunspot activity and global temperatures are related because the sun is our primary source of heat, we are due for serious cooling – not warming.  Furthermore NASA’s TIMED satellite confirms that the thermosphere around the planet is cooling and shrinking rapidly.

Lastly, I ran across another article entitled, “Giant meteor crater found under Greenland ice cap”, which has nothing to do with global warming and cooling.  It’s a fascinating article from NASA.  But the following statement grabbed my attention:

“the Hiawatha Crater was likely formed less than three million years ago and possibly as little as 12,000 years ago”

Wait a minute!  Some time between 3,000,000 and 12,000 years ago?  Another way of saying that is 1,500,000 ±1,500,000 years ago.  Or 1,500,000 years ago with an accuracy of ± 100%!  That’s simply a WAG (Wild A** Guess) masquerading as science!

Sadly, this is the state of our modern science.  Scientists used to pursue accuracy and truthfulness.  Now scientists are creating fudge factors that introduce 600% errors just to prove a political point.

And other scientists present WAGs as scientific conclusions!  Even NASA has been infected by the disease.  Can you imagine trying to land a man on the moon using rocket engines that have a predictable reliability of ±100%? Would you even consider buying a car that has an estimated life of 5 years ±100%  (0 – 10 years)?  I certainly wouldn’t.

Science used to be a discipline that searched for truth.  Scientists used to pursue excellence and accuracy, no matter where their findings led them. 

No more. We cannot depend on anything scientists try to sell us because I fear it has become little more than a search for the biggest grant, and their “conclusions” have become little more than fish tale whoppers.

The Roof

June 2, 2017 1 comment

IMG_4021I needed a new roof.  The last time I went away on a trip, the roof began to leak and we had to use pots to catch the water; furthermore I noticed several new water spots growing on the ceiling of the living room.  I decided a seamless metal roof over the existing shingles would assure me many trouble-free years without leaks.  Since I didn’t want to do the work myself, I needed to find a contractor.  I decided it would be nice to include a carport in the project so it would match the rest of the house.

Be Prepared!

Be prepared!

The Marines are prepared.  The Boy Scouts are prepared.  Many large corporations are prepared.  My last job was to coordinate emergency preparedness and business continuity efforts and planning at a global organization.  We, too, need to be prepared as individuals and as families.  What for?

A great calamity is about to fall on this nation. I don’t pretend to know exactly when or what because no one can foretell the future.  But I can tell you with certainty that a great calamity will befall this nation soon. I can tell you with certainty that 9-11, the Boston Marathon Bombing, and the Ft. Hood shootings will pale in comparison to what we are about to experience.

I am not fear mongering.  I say this with such confidence because all the signs are pointing in the same direction:

Blood Moons

TIMG_3078 cropped2here has been a lot said and written about blood moons lately.[1] Some claim that the blood moons portend signs of the end times. Others claim that the blood moons are a warning to this nation. Yet others ignore them altogether as insignificant. Which interpretation is correct? Read more…

Independence Day

IMG_0534July 4th.  A day for family, picnics, and fireworks.  A day of rest, celebration, and joy.  A day of remembrance?

We celebrated July 4th on a large field hosted by a local church.  A baseball field was surrounded by pristine hardwoods, with a small hill overlooking first base.  The small hill provided a superb view of fireworks set up in the middle of the baseball field.  The temperature was perfect; the swelling crowd waited eagerly for the sun to set and the fireworks show to begin.

Choice

“When I die, I’m going to ask God….”

Actually, when you die and come face to face with God, you will be unable to speak.  You will ask Him nothing.  You will just fall to the ground in abject terror and mouth the words,
“Woe is me! Woe is me!  For I have sinned greatly,”
but not a sound will emerge from your mouth until God says, “Speak!”

We know this to be true from the Biblical accounts of godly people who have experienced God in His glory.  It is unimaginable how much more terrifying it will be for the ungodly!  Read more…

Atheist Bibles and Chaplains?

June 18, 2013 Leave a comment

Counter-CutAtheists are on a mission to eradicate any semblance of Christianity from America’s public forums and places. The mission is doomed to failure: It failed miserably in spite of nearly a century of Communist repression in Russia. But that doesn’t stop atheists from trying.

Two such recent attempts follow.
Which brings up the question, “When is not a religion a religion?”
The legal answer:  “When atheism looks like a religion, talks like a religion, and acts like a religion.”
Nevertheless one wonders if our government is intentionally implementing atheism as the official “state religion”…
