Here is an excerpt from an interesting article by Crux Now which states that Pope Francis believes that the greatest threat to the contemporary age is Gnosticism. Francis says that Gnosticism can be found in clericalism, legalism and fundamentalism. It is especially strong among the keepers of knowledge, the doctors of the law, who are more inclined to trust in the power of the world. (more…)
(Source: FBI) - FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael McGarrity of the New York Field Office and Joon H. Kim, Deputy U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, formally presented the Torlonia Peplophoros statue to Generale di Brigata Fabrizio Parrulli of Italy’s Carabinieri in a ceremony today at the New York Historical Society Library. The statue was briefly available for public viewing for the first time in 33 years. The statue will soon return to Italy, where it will be displayed again for the public to view at one of Italy’s prominent art museums. (more…)
In order to keep with the fantastic plastic world, you have to act, dress and look the part in order to fit in with the crowd, or should I say, "hipster crowd." While most of us know that Christmas is supposed to be a time of love, family, and sharing, in reality, here in America, it is mostly about commercialism with the plastic things you buy at the store.
So it is no wonder that it was time to throw out that old nativity set with Jesus, his apostles and the three wise men and replace it with modern figurines who represent our current fake world.
It is called the "Hipster Nativity Set," and you can get your grubby little trendy hands on it for a paltry sum of only $129. Hell, when you compare that price to that latest $700 oversized iPhone that is bulging out of your tight jean pockets, or your over priced beard care products, it's a fricken steal!
"Just imagine the nativity in 2016," the website says. "A lot has changed in the last 2,000 years. For starters, I don’t even think they had iPhones back then, which explains why Joseph didn’t add the birth of Jesus to his Snapchat story. If you love Amazon Prime, and have no idea what frankincense and myrrh (sp?) are, this is the Nativity set for you."
MEET THE LOVABLE CAST
MARY, JOSEPH AND JESUS
If you’ve ever wondered what the very first family Christmas photo looked like, wonder no longer. Fresh off a Whole Foods shopping spree, Joseph is rocking his man bun and finest denim shirt, while Mary shows off her high cheek bones with her best duck face.
THE THREE WISEMEN
It’s crazy to think that the Wisemen followed a star in the sky to find Jesus, rather than using Google Maps, but who are we to judge? These Wisemen arrive to the birth of Jesus in style, rocking their favorite hipster outfits, and tricked out segways.
SHEPHERD & ANIMALS
It wouldn’t be a modern day birth if at least one person wasn’t putting it on Instagram, and luckily, our teenage shepherd has it covered #babyjesus #nofilter. Next to him are some well taken care of animals.
Over the last decade, there have been many people around the world who have been reporting and documenting what are known as chemtrails. These chemtrails are said to be manmade clouds from planes that look like contrails initially, but they are poisonous chemicals being sprayed in the air that are much thicker, extend across the sky and are often laid down in varying patterns of Xs, tick-tack-toe grids etc.
A recent international survey of 3015 people had shown that 17% of people believe in the existence of a secret large-scale government chemtrail program to be true or partly true. (more…)
There is a growing and disturbing trend of anti-intellectual elitism in American culture. It’s the dismissal of science, the arts, and humanities and their replacement by entertainment, self-righteousness, ignorance, and deliberate gullibility.
Susan Jacoby, author of The Age of American Unreason, says in an article in theWashington Post, "Dumbness, to paraphrase the late senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, has been steadily defined downward for several decades, by a combination of heretofore irresistible forces. These include the triumph of video culture over print culture; a disjunction between Americans' rising level of formal education and their shaky grasp of basic geography, science and history; and the fusion of anti-rationalism with anti-intellectualism."

Almost weekly I see city workers openly spraying toxic pesticides all around my neighborhood. They spray this poisonous gas on our children's playgrounds, the grass where people play and even on the rocks that decorate the city landscape turning them yellow.
It's truly sickening to watch this toxification of our earth happen day in, and day out. Sometimes I feel like I'm living in a toxic nightmare surrounded by idiots who simply cannot read a label, or even the research proving that these chemicals are DEADLY to humans. (more…)
Are we in the days of the Last Judgement? The signs and symbols of the End of an Age are everywhere and this story of the infamous Roman sixth-century church known as the Sistine Chapel reopening to the public after 30 years of restoration seems to align with the last days of the Apocalypse (unveiling).
The Sistine Chapel was covered in 847 during an earthquake and it was only exposed in 1900. The Chapel's frescoes of saints and martyrs, queens, popes and emperors have now been restored at a cost of about $2.1 funded by the Italian state and the World Monuments Fund. (more…)
