New discovery of largest structure in universe upsets scientific paradigms-yet again

Largest Structure in Universe Discovered – weather.com:
http://www.weather.com/news/astronomers-discover-large-quasars-20130114

Astronomers have discovered the largest known structure in the universe — a group of quasars so large it would take 4 billion years to cross it while traveling at speed of light.

The immense scale also challenges Albert Einstein’s Cosmological Principle, the assumption that the universe looks the same from every point of view, researchers said.

It just keeps on happening. This time, it’s upsetting what they used to call the Copernican principle, which is that the universe looks pretty much the same no matter where you are in it. Another way of saying it is that there is no “special place” in the universe.

The “Copernican principle” definition I see most at the top of a web search is that the “Earth” has no special place in the universe. Of course that is to give emphasis to Earth itself, a subtle misdirected swipe at the Bible, actually.

Albert Einstein’s version sounds more “neutral” of course.

For a long time since in the 19th century scientists began bowing to pressure and to new teachings in government schools, and trying to figure out an origins that didn’t have a God or Biblical history in it. Geologists began this movement apparently, even during the time of Darwin’s grandfather.

So they made up theories to explain how things got there. Steady state universe evaded the question by saying things are always there, that there was no beginning. When they discovered the red shift and interpreted to mean the universe was expanding, some of its advocates modified the solid-state universe by saying new matter was constantly being created in the voids left by expansion.

The BIg Bang was adapted by some. The name was a pejorative for the idea as a ridicule because a lot of atheist scientists who resisted the Big Bang thought it was something that supported a support for a created universe. They still haven’t come up with a believable idea about how it got “started” –nothing they say can explain it.

But they still had their billions of years, so they stopped sweating so much about it eventually.

But then a lot of the calculations didn’t work out and the structures they saw out there didn’t fit expectations, so they had to start inventing invisible undetectable things to make it all fit. Of course they said that the visible universe was evidence for it, but didn’t much say that this was built on the foudnation of their philosophical framework, including the aforementioned “cosmological principle”.

They should have stuck to Isaac Newton’s formulation of the idea that the principles of physics are the same no matter where you are in the universe. That’s a different idea, and more to the point. But then they would have had to eventually deal with what Newton also said about it –that this was evidence of a rational God –as opposed to one that capriciously went about creating ad hoc havoc with human expectations –like the Greek gods of ancient myth.

At least they admit they’ve never actually “proved” homogenuity, although in “thinking” about it with formulas some of them may think they “prove” something.

A few years ago there was a Wired magazine article about a trip to a science museum where they had a scale model structure representing the objects in space in our neighborhood in space. The writer was struck by the way the structure seemed to center on Earth, not as an effect of observation, but of the structure. It seemed so oriented he said.

But now with this giant quasar group they are questioning the assumptions again. They could have asked Halton Arp, but they will never do that even if they give credit to a couple of late comers to his party. Halton Arp is blacklisted from elite-directed academia because he is a creationist astronomer. He catalogued hundreds of astronomical “anomalies”, including dozens or hundreds of quasars that contradict the red shift assumptions about distance.

Ron Paul: When They Came For The Raw Milk Drinkers… – Liberty Crier

Who knew, that a person selling a gold coin, even with a warning not to use it as “legal tender”, was a “terrorist”?

Who knew, that federal agents had to go undercover and spend millions of dollars to expose one of the most evil of dealers in illegal substances, Amish farmer Dan Allgyer selling raw milk?

Who knew, that James Stewart of Rawesome Foods was such an evil man for selling raw milk that he now sits in prison for selling raw milk, legal in California, but banned by a federal agency?

Russia, the Bolsheviks, Western financing

Re-posted from a discussion elsewhere:

German and the Russian Bolshevik insistence on quitting the war was a good cover during WWII for German capitalists supporting the purported sworn enemies of capitalists inside Russia. Just like “democracy” is a believable cover for Obama’s support for the “Arab Spring” that it turns out is actually the “Arab Winter”. (Note that nobody in the Media, Fox News included is admitting an editorial mistake on that one). But hundreds of thousands, probably millions, have strong trouble believing the cover story anymore, and most of those know how to add, no matter that all the government-media complex is pretending skeptics don’t exist.

But then there’s another twist to that. The Czar was already deposed when Lenin and Trotsky went in. The big Western banks and financial interests had starved the Russians for war financing, and all the Russian institutions were feeling that. The new Kerensky government needed the financing from the West, with the Bolsheviks and the war making havoc of their economy. They begged the West to let them quit the war and keep the financing because Russian domestic opposition was putting their government in danger.

The Western bankers and financiers said, No way Jose, you quit the war you quit the financing. (Unspoken subtext: We don’t care if the Bolsheviks take over, in fact our pals the Kaisers are sending Trotsky with gold to finance them). Remember this was also just a few scant years after the same bankers hoodwinked the United States to enact both the income tax and the Federal Reserve, too….

So the Russian front continued at war, the Bolsheviks rode the anti-war sentiment and Western gold to power, Russia quit the war anyway –and then– Western money poured into Bolshevik Russia anyway despite their quitting the war…..

Alexander Hamilton, the first U.S. central bank, money changers, and Andrew Jackson

Central banking was NEVER a good idea. Andrew Jackson had flaws, but at least he apparently was not in their “pocket” (pun intended). No partisan of individual liberty –natural individual rights– can condone a force-subsidized centralization of control over a nation’s financial activity, or government-enforced privileges for a selected cartel of private bankers.

I don’t know enough about the Federalist Papers to know what Alexander Hamilton said in them about central banks, but it’s rather obvious that he and Justice Marshall hid the “whole truth” from the public. Many of the other founders, including Thomas Jefferson, were very explicit in their condemnations of centralized banking power.

Central banks are the Trojan horse of usurpation of power leading to more power-grabbing. This is one reason Jesus Christ himself showed by example what his followers should do with money changers. Keep watch on them, they cheat and lie and turn the houses of God into dens of thieves.

This is EXACTLY what happened with Alexander Hamilton’s central bank. It’s a very bad mark on Washington’s presidency, in fact. The bankers began using federal government money to expand their control over all the banking in general, which was one reason Maryland tried to stop them in Maryland.

And the fact that many of these central-banking-advocates signed the Constitution shows they were not all being honest. That includes later Chief Justice Marshall, who headed the Supreme Court decision to declare the charter for the central bank constitutional.

So when Andrew Jackson got his chance to veto the central bank charter renewal passed by Congress, he most emphatically put his VETO on it. He had his flaws but this is one of the best things any U.S. president has ever done for the American people. ALL the American people.

Think about why  Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto advocated for a central bank that would control the monetary system in every country in the world. Most socialists, Communists, and “progressives” roll right over that –except the ones that do and think about it do not remain such for long– but they should consider it. Why would an anti-capitalist push for giving capitalist bankers complete control over a nation’s economy?

 

‘Knockout Game’ perp shot, killed

Oh yeah, you think the Press cares about blacks when they talk up white guys shooting blacks? Joke’s on you if you think that, because they only care if it’s a white shooter.

What about all the black shooters? That’s what, about ten thousand times more often?

About to be raped? Democrat suggests ‘whistling’

Gun control freak who thinks disarming good guys will stop bad guys from doing bad things, tells women to arm themselves with… whistles! And if somebody’s trying to rape you women, he says run to a phone! This is because he doesn’t think women are any safer if they can shoot the rapist!

Illegally Accused, Ivory Coast President Gbagbo Begins ICC Hearing

February 20, 2013

The West does it again.

Supports the Muslim rebel army in Ivory Coast and now has the overthrown Christian Prime Minister in the ICC World Court accused of war crimes. Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, working on Syria, they’re not stopping yet…

http://www.thedailybell.com/28723/Illegally-Accused-Ivory-Coast-President-Gbagbo-Begins-ICC-Hearing

The Muslim guy apparently has ties to the IMF. Surprise.

Eventually, Gbagbo had no chance. UN and French troops extracted him from the palace and turned him over to Ouattara. The Muslim technocrat briefly tortured Gbagbo, his wife was raped and his associates murdered. Eventually, he was turned over to the George Soros-funded International Criminal Court.

Craziness reaches West Point Academy

February 17, 2013

It’s getting crazy out there…

From the Washington Times, quoted at www.lewrockwell.com:

A West Point think tank has issued a paper warning America about “far right” groups such as the “anti-federalist” movement, which supports “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government.”

The report issued this week by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., is titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.”

Whoa, wait a minute! The people they are calling “anti-federalist”, are more often actually the federalists. The political ideology that supports subverting local and state level governments with command-and-control rule from the federal government, and with the federal government exceeding its constitutional authority.

The psych effect is in the word association trick of putting “far-right” in the same sentence with “individual freedom”.

That’s a very direct attack on the blooming and fast-expanding liberty movement of millions of people that follow truly libertarian principles that emphasize the sovereignty of the individual. One of my favorite quotes to come out of the ideal of individual freedom is one that demonstrates the folly of majority votes. It’s couched as an definition of democracy by example: “Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner”. No wonder some people are saying “Our goose is cooked”.

For real, Cal Thomas?

February 17, 2013


Famed pediatric neurosurgeon
Dr. Ben Carson

Cal Thomas thinks the “Presidential Prayer Breakfast” is not a proper place to preach politics at the president, like he says Ben Carson did.

Seriously?

Obama uses every occasion  for his own political points.The field of respecting the proper forum has been dead for a long time, and it is no longer an even playing field. A rich elite class is confiscating the wealth and political machinery of the nation and the traditional means of propaganda have been subverted by them for their own purposes. Dictators always claim they’re doing the best thing for the poor and powerless while robbing them, jailing them, poisoning them.

Of course with your syndicated column, Cal, you might claim that the media is not tilted against real world vision because they often publish a letter to the editor. Can you be so naive?

It is time people who can see the catastrophe rushing toward the country from idiotic policies that have nothing to do with “politics” like the UNFAIR idea of different taxes for different people (that’s UNEQUAL treatment under the law), or the education disaster caused by the government-enforced government de facto monopoly on indoctrination of the poor.

Of course they may say it should be apolitical. In view of the media “self”-censorship blackout of conservative thought by our dark-skinned neighbors, Ben Carson decided to step out of the propaganda-handled media spin on his talk and on the prayer breakfast, and refuse to be the “house you-know-what”, played for his color. His color with his open Christian beliefs in fact made him a political choice that favored Obama in the first place.

IT’S NOT THE FIRST time, Cal, either. Mother Theresa blasted the entire Washington DC establishment and the nation to Bill Clinton’s face at this Prayer Breakfast, asking how a nation can call itself civilized or peaceful when it is waging war on the children.

Assaulting our children, dividing them from their parents, bankrupting the country and starving the poor as this regime’s actions are doing, these are not “political” issues.

And like the kings of the Old Testament, this president –and the nation– does not need a polite “feel-good” message, but a stern prophetic warning from those who care about others. Ben Carson refused to behave and call it “civil disobedience” if you want, but if this breaks through the Lapdog Media filter, more power to him.

Thoughts on John Barnes and “Daybreak Zero”

February 14, 2013

This is mostly a reaction to reading a semi-leftist viewpoint of the novel:

http://opionator.wordpress.com/2011/04/23/daybreak-zero-by-john-barnes

You can’t trust international courts any more than local courts, in fact much less. The temptation of money and power is relentless on the human psyche, and trusting others to conform to rules for respecting individual rights is naive at best, and at worst makes one the “useful idiot” Lenin was talking about, like I used to be as a Communist. Trusting the totalitarian state to fade away when it’s no longer needed, as Karl Marx said it, is a stupid idea that too many smart people fall far (yep, even me).

I don’t know of even one libertarian who advocates castle feudalism along the lines of the ones John Barnes describes in this novel “Daybreak Zero“, and I know a great many of them. That kind of thing is more of a United Nations idea, a subtext in authoritarian world government. The United Nations’ advocacy of “human rights” is an oxymoron, as proven in the unanimous vote against Honduras in 2009, when its government (remember, legislatures and courts are also “the government” along with the executive, in republics) did the right thing and constitutionally removed a dictator and auto-coup president (Manuel Zelaya). And as proven in the chairmanship of their human rights advocacy organization going to Sudan, the genocidal regime that massacred two million Christians in South Sudan before the world took notice –of Darfur.

Libertarians know that trade without coercion is the path to prosperity for the most people possible and is best for the poor.

My beef with the novel is that almost all the speculation about Christians is the post-Tribulation “theocracy” stereotype. There are all too many of them today that feed that stereotype, and there is a Christian media establishment lock-down similar to the leftist lock-down on most traditional media. But there would be millions of unsung Christians that would be more visible in such disasters by rushing to help the hurting. They are more than the unfair caricature often painted out there. The obsession with the Torquemada type is a denial mechanism to divert from the Mother Theresa types and the Doctor Livingston types.

Another common flaw in almost all post-apocalyptic novels is the subtle idea in the background that civilization can only be “saved” by some political authority.

But Ron Paul has made Christian libertarians much more visible. We are nothing like Ayn Rand, who carried a brutal bitterness throughout her life apparently against God, and blaming God for the devil’s handiwork. And an Ayn Rand libertarian might well be in practice more like a castle feudalist in the kind of context of a post-Daybreak world.

The book is impoverished for that but John Barnes is a pretty good writer, in my opinion, communicating things as he sees them. To me his writing is more engaging than Clarke’s or Asimov.

The main flaw in almost all post-apocalyptic novels is the subtle idea in the background that civilization can only be “saved” by some political authority.
