    Locusts in Africa devouring food sources; bats, fires, and floods in Australia; Volcanoes and earthquakes in other spots; and now this, from the cosmos - probably a hint that more are coming (also warned to be in the mix as nature rebels against so much sin by man). No more of those "tin foil hats"; maybe now the need for lead helmets or such!!:

    NASA warns of 'potentially hazardous' asteroid

    NASA has confirmed that an asteroid larger than the tallest man-made structures on Earth will miss the planet by a few million miles Saturday, the International Business Times reported.

    The asteroid is traveling toward Earth at a speed of almost 34,000 miles per hour, the outlet reported. A collision would likely trigger a nuclear winter and mass extinction, but the asteroid is set to pass the planet by approximately 3.6 million miles.

    NASA’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies identified the asteroid as 163373 (2002 PZ39). It is estimated to have a diameter of approximately 3,250 feet, making it larger than the Burj Dubai, which is currently the tallest building in the world.

    The asteroid has been labeled a “Potentially Hazardous Asteroid” by NASA. It is an Apollo asteroid, which means it will intersect Earth’s path around the sun.

    According to NASA’s website, “Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are currently defined based on parameters that measure the asteroid’s potential to make threatening close approaches to the Earth.”

    NASA currently estimates that the asteroid will pass by the planet on Saturday at 6:05 a.m. EST, the International Business Times reported.

    Pueblo police get report of ‘demonic sounds’ at restaurant

    Meet Harrisburg’s modern-day exorcist (Video)

    ELYSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — ‘The Exorcist’ was a classic and creepy movie in 1973. But demonic possession is not just the stuff of Hollywood. Every Catholic diocese in the world is concerned about evil spirits in 2020, and they’ve all been instructed to name a priest to combat them.

    ABC27 recently sat down with the man tasked with denying the demonic in the Harrisburg diocese.

    Knoebel’s Amusement Resort might be its most famous attraction, but Elysburg is home to a lesser-known haunt, and its chaplain is Father John Szada.

    Szada delivers mass every morning in Latin. “It’s an experience of holiness, an experience of silence, an experience of union with God,” he said.

    Helping believers find God is one part of Szada’s job. Another: chasing away the devil.

    “[The] bishop said to me, ‘I have something I have to tell you. I’d like you to be my exorcist.’ That was it. Literally, that was it,” Szada recalled.

    That was in 2011. There were only around 15 exorcists in America then, but there are now over a hundred who attend a yearly conference to share tips and trade secrets.

    Every two years, it’s off to Rome for the International Conference of Exorcists, a group enthusiastically endorsed by Pope Francis.

    “The name of the exorcist is submitted to Rome and it’s kept on file in Rome,” Szada said.

    When asked if he has seen a demonic possession, Szada laughed and said, “More than one.”

    Job one, Szada says, is ruling out mental illness which weeds out many claims.

    But there are rare instances, and Szada remembers them vividly.

    “A person was possessed and it took four fully grown men to hold this person down,” Szada said.

    Another client didn’t know Latin but answered Szada’s questions fluently in Latin. That was the work of the devil, he insists.

    And then the local girl who was hospitalized.

    “Doctors couldn’t figure out what was going on. Tranquilizers were not working. They stepped out to consult, they came back in and found her climbing up the wall, literally, like Spider-Man,” Szada said.

    He said ‘The Exorcist’ is fairly accurate, minus the head-spinning. The church has guidelines on how to perform exorcisms which include prayer and ritual. The bishop must approve each case. The possessed rarely approve.

    “You sprinkle holy water on a person and they really react, pretty good clue that this is demonic,” Szada said.

    “The notion that there are spirits that can take over our bodies personally doesn’t make sense to me, but it’s also really, really fascinating,” said Matthew Sayers, associate professor of religion at Lebanon Valley College.

    Sayers was raised Catholic but is now an atheist who doesn’t believe in demonic possession but understands why the Vatican does.

    “Having an exorcist in every diocese is literally just having a safety plan in place. Having a fire extinguisher in every hallway in the building. We’ve got one there just in case something comes up,” Sayers said.

    The ancient art of exorcism is needed in modern times more than ever, according to the Vatican, which says possessions are at an all-time high. At every mass, Catholics are now praying to Saint Michael the Archangel.

    It specifically asks for protection from the devil, “thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls,” the prayer concludes.

    When asked if he had been face-to-face with the devil, Szada quickly responded, “Oh, yeah.”

    He also said he’s never scared because God works through him and God is stronger than Satan.

    When asked what he thought about people calling him nuts, Szada chuckled, “Thank you.”

    Szada says he has performed seven actual exorcisms in nine years and the best way to ward off evil spirits is to stay holy. He also warns against using Ouji boards and Tarot cards which, he says, can invite the demonic.

    Happy St. Valentine's Day Father Mark Goring and all MOG members! I apologize that I am a day late but I do hope that you had a wonderful day yesterday and that you are continuing to celebrate St. Valentine's Day this weekend by spending time with those who you love the most.:love:

    Father Mark Goring has another nice video out in which he speaks of God's love for us and eucharistic miracles, etc.

    He also states that he believes that we are living in Apocalyptic times and that not only should we be fasting and praying but he is also suggesting that we receive Our Lord on our knees whenever possible.

    May God continue to bless this good priest. +

    Fifteen years in Iowa jail for burning pride flag

    A US judge has handed down a sentence of at least 15 years to a man who stole an LGBT pride flag from a church and burned it outside a strip club.

    Adolfo Martinez, 30, admitted to the media that he took the flag from Ames United Church of Christ due to his animosity towards homosexuals.

    He was found guilty last month of hate crime harassment, reckless use of fire and being a habitual offender.

    The incident occurred around midnight on 11 June in downtown Ames, Iowa.

    Police say the crime spree began at Dangerous Curves, a strip club, when police were called because a man was making threats. By the time they arrived, he had already been kicked out by bar staff.

    After leaving the club, Martinez then travelled to the church and ripped down its flag. He then returned to the strip club where he used lighter fluid to burn the flag in the street. He also threatened to burn down the bar.

    He was arrested later that day, and told local media in a jail house interview that he was "guilty as charged".

    "It was an honour to do that. It's a blessing from the Lord," he said, explaining that he did it because he "opposed homosexuality".

    "I burned down their pride, plain and simple," he told KCCI-TV. The interview was entered into the trial as evidence against him.

    Church pastor Eileen Gebbie, who identifies as gay woman, says she agrees that Martinez' actions were motivated by hatred.

    "I often experienced Ames as not being as progressive as many people believe it is, and there still is a very large closeted queer community here," she told the Des Moines Register when he was convicted in November.

    "But 12 people that I don't know, who have no investment in me or this congregation, said this man committed a crime, and it was a crime borne of bigotry and hatred."

    Story County Attorney Jessica Reynolds said Martinez was the first person in the county's history to be convicted of a hate crime.

    "The hard reality is there are people who target individuals and commit crimes against individuals because of their race, gender, sexual orientation," she told the Ames Tribune.

    "And when that happens it's so important that as a society we stand up and people have severe consequences for those actions."

    As an Iowan, I don't like this, BUT ...

    Given that he was kicked out of a strip club for threatening violence, and then started a fire in the middle of the street ...

    ... I'm sure he'll get out in 10 years.

    Not sure this is the right place to post this but mike Bloomberg who is spending his billions to snag the democratic presidential nomination with repeating ads promising "mike will get it done" is on record saying farmers are dumb and the elderly are bankrupting our healthcare system so we shouldn't be treating their diseases but should save the $ for young people. And asked a woman working for him who had an unplanned pregnancy "will you kill it?" I'm happy to report she was deepkyvoffended. Uh huh. He also had many ugly things to say about minorities but best of all---wait for it--he wants Hillary for his VP. (Alteady mentioned here on the forum)

    My sister walked to top of Mount Etna a few years back. Millions of people did. It was like Yellowstone Park. I wouldn't like to try that at the moment.

    It's very ,very beautiful though in the snow. But very .very dangerous. It wiped out Pompeii.

    Signs of preparation for the coming control chip?

    Scientists switch monkey brains on or off using electricity in experiment

    The animals were given strong anaesthetics but then shocked instantly awake using tiny probes to deliver electricity to a chamber deep in the brain

    Scientists have discovered the brain’s "on" switch, enabling them to turn the consciousness of monkeys on and off at will.

    A team co-led by Yuri Saalmann, an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, discovered that stimulating a tiny chamber deep in the brain called the central lateral thalamus would instantly wake up a monkey that had been knocked out with a powerful anaesthetic.

    Tiny electric shocks “switched on” the brains of the macaque, awakening them in seconds.

    Saalmann said: "We found that when we stimulated this tiny little brain area, we could wake the animals up and reinstate all the neural activity that you'd normally see in the cortex during wakefulness."

    "They acted just as they would if they were awake. When we switched off the stimulation, the animals went straight back to being unconscious.”

    The experiment sounds cruel almost to the point of nastiness, but there is a valuable purpose to it, according to Michelle Redinbaugh, a graduate student in the Department of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison

    Redinbaugh, who was one of the leaders of the study explained: "The overriding motivation of this research is to help people with disorders of consciousness to live better lives."

    "We have to start by understanding the minimum mechanism that is necessary or sufficient for consciousness, so that the correct part of the brain can be targeted clinically."

    "There are many exciting implications for this work," she added. "It's possible we may be able to use these kinds of deep-brain stimulating electrodes to bring people out of comas.

    “Our findings may also be useful for developing new ways to monitor patients under clinical anaesthesia, to make sure they are safely unconscious."

    The team’s paper, published in scientific journal Neuron, details the experiment. The monkeys were anaesthetised for a full two hours before being “switched on” by the micro-electric shocks.

    As soon as their brains were stimulate they opened their eyes, stretched their limbs and reacted normally to sound and light.

    When the electricity was switched off, they immediately lost consciousness again.

    Animal health was monitored by veterinarians at the WNPRC. The University of Wisconsin-Madison Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee approved all procedures, which conformed to the National Institutes of Health Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals.
