Must See Premonition Of Twin Towers Destruction!!!
16 Sep 2001 22:33:16
see an ad I synchronistically found in a National Geographic from September of 1989. I WILL GET THIS SCANNED IN SOON
For those unable to open the attachment I will describe the ad to you. There is a picture of the Twin Towers and below it this caption: “Low-rises. 2060 A. D.”
Then there is a picture of a Samsung CD player and the caption: “Hi-Tech. 2060 A.D.”
Below that is this ad copy: “Will today’s hi-rises be the low-rises of tomorrow? That remains to be seen. But Samsung audio products will surely be high on everyone’s list.”
(Recently I was visiting with a friend and he had on his wall an ad for the Windows on the World restaurant on top of the Twin Towers. The headline of the ad read, “As close to heaven as you’ll ever get.”)
This morning I composed an email message in longhand about the bogus Nostradamus prophecy flying around the web, but also talking about taking premonitions seriously. That message follows shortly.
In 1993 a close friend, Sean, spent two hours discussing with someone what would happen if the Twin Towers fell down. He also had a specific premonition about an event he felt would happen on his college campus the next day The following day the Trade Center was bombed, and the event on campus occurred also. In my message I further stated that if anyone had a premonition that they should contact the Central Premonitions Registry (clever.net/yaron/precog/index.shtml) As you may know the Central Premonitions Registry was created after a tragic coal mine collapse in the Welsh Village of Aberfan killed 128 school children. Many people had accurate premonitions of that event.
(Apparently an ad copy writer had an accurate premonition in 1989)
Several people have forwarded to me the bogus Nostradamus prophecy flying around the web. John Hoag, who has written nine books on Nostradamus and other Nostradamus mavens have debunked it. Nostradamus was a very interesting man, Jung took him seriously, and he may have had some hits in the past. The problem with Nostradamus prophecies is that he wrote 10 volumes of weird, metaphorical, often nonsensical stuff in French. With that much material to work with, and with the latitude of translation, of course you can find correspondences to almost anything if you want to dig through it. Rarely does Nostradamus provide specific dates so people can sort through 500 years of history to try to match things up. A notable exception is the Nostradamus prophecy that the “King of Terror will come from the sky in the seventh month of 1999.” Possibly Michael Jackson, the self-appointed “King of Pop,” and who looks truly terrifying these days, stepped off an airplane in July of 99′, otherwise I didn’t notice any King of Terror coming from the sky that month and no one else did either. Nostradamus struck out. If prophecy were a gong show then on August 1, 1999 a GONG! should have sounded and a giant hook should have pulled Nostradamus and John Hoag off the stage forever. John Hoag, desperately trying to keep his Nostradamus career going has been saying (since July 99′ came and went) that the King of Terror is global warming. Now he says (as of his Saturday appearance on Whitley Streiber’s Dreamland) that the King of Terror is global warming and terrorism. If that isn’t embarrassing enough, Hoag tried some correspondences to the 9-11 disaster. Nostradamus wrote something about “hollow mountains” and a fire of some sort. Hoag suggests that hollow mountains might be the way that a man from Nostradamus’s century might see the Twin Towers. Huh? Nostradamus lived near a 20 story high cathedral, he was not unfamiliar with the concept building. And would the perfectly symmetrical, rectilinear, metallic towers jam packed with people and things be seen as “hollow mountains.” Maybe to a paleolithic observer. Then Hoag mentions that the hollow mountains are supposed to be near a garden. You guessed it, the garden is the nearby “Garden State” of New Jersey! So did Nostradamus visualize toxic New Jersey as a garden? Or did he foresee that a mentally challenged public relations person would eventually call New Jersey the “Garden State?” GONG!
Next on the Gong show are a couple of Christian Fundamentalists, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. Their stupidity is stunning by even by modern human standards. Instead of having a war on terrorists why don’t we have a war on all religious fundamentalists. That would take care of most terrorists and no one could say we were unfairly singling out Islamic fundamentalists. We could also save ourselves the trouble of hunting these few persons in foreign lands and could start with all the fundamentalists we can find here in the home land. The quality of their thinking is certainly identical. In the following verbatim article from the Washington Post Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson are modestly described as the two most prominent voices of the religious right. In fact, they are absolutely the two most prominent voices—Falwell is the founder of the moronic and doubly oxymoronic “Moral Majority” and Pat Robertson was once taken seriously as a presidential candidate. They seem to agree with Ben Laden that,yes, he was acting on behalf of God to punish us.
God Gave U.S. ‘What We Deserve,’ Falwell Says
by John F. Harris, Washington Post Staff Writer, Friday, September 14, 2001; Page C03
Television evangelists Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, two of the most prominent voices of the religious right, said liberal civil liberties groups, feminists, homosexuals and abortion rights supporters bear partial responsibility for Tuesday’s terrorist attacks because their actions have turned God’s anger against America.
“God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve,” said Falwell, appearing yesterday on the Christian Broadcasting Network’s “700 Club,” hosted by Robertson.
“Jerry, that’s my feeling,” Robertson responded. “I think we’ve just seen the antechamber to terror. We haven’t even begun to see what they can do to the major population.”
Falwell said the American Civil Liberties Union has “got to take a lot of blame for this,” again winning Robertson’s agreement: “Well, yes.”
Then Falwell broadened his blast to include the federal courts and others who he said were “throwing God out of the public square.” He added: “The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way—all of them who have tried to secularize America–I point the finger in their face and say, ‘You helped this happen.'”
People for the American Way transcribed the broadcast and denounced the comments as running directly counter to President Bush’s call for national unity. Ralph G. Neas, the liberal group’s president, called the remarks “absolutely inappropriate and irresponsible.”
Robertson and others on the religious right gave critical backing to Bush last year when he was battling for the GOP presidential nomination. A White House official called the remarks “inappropriate” and added, “The president does not share those views.”
Falwell was unrepentant, saying in an interview that he was “making a theological statement, not a legal statement.”
“I put all the blame legally and morally on the actions of the terrorist,” he said. But he said America’s “secular and anti-Christian environment left us open to our Lord’s [decision] not to protect. When a nation deserts God and expels God from the culture…the result is not good.”
Robertson was not available for comment, a spokeswoman said. But she released a statement echoing the remarks he made on his show. An ACLU spokeswoman said the group “will not dignify the Falwell-Robertson remarks with a comment.”
