The original Hadron Collider in the E.U. wasn't enough, so they want to build it bigger.
Is this the modern parallel to the Tower of Babel from ancient Mesopotamia?
When we consider lessons being taught and learned throughout our lives, we don’t necessarily think of these lessons starting at the very beginning of time. These lessons include the ethical and moral principles in which Christianity itself is based upon. Even further though, we never pull back far enough to see how lessons effect society and humankind as a whole unit. From the beginning mankind has chosen to take the path seemingly today more frequently traveled in poor decision making for achieving scientific greatness—all starting with Adam and Eve—with their choice to eat the apple from the forbidden Tree of Knowledge. Humanity didn’t learn it’s lesson from The Fall which shows us that humanity can’t do it their own way. Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden. This ultimate expulsion sealed the fall of mankind.
The world was a wicked place in the days of Noah. Those disgraceful, disgusting, violent, immoral and unethical societies in those days were something horrific. Dr. David Leston wrote that “archaeologists have unearthed bodies of people who lived in Mesopotamia, they have found evidence that cannibalism was practiced. In short, this was a very brutal era, in which humanity showed little to no regard for one another.” He goes on to mention that in “January 1996 National Geographic did a comparison between rodeo riders and their injuries, and skeletons uncovered from the time of Noah.
They found striking similarities between the injuries of the two groups, suggesting that this was a very violent society. When people reject God and the boundaries and purposes that He has created for them, they become a law unto themselves, and society becomes more weaker and dangerous.” The net result? The same as always, extreme anarchy and a violent world. So, God flooded the world and spared the only honest and Godly man alive at the time. It was Noah who God gave the task of rebuilding civilization.
It was right after the Flood that people would repopulate the Fertile Crescent (the middle east). This was a very fertile and agriculturally productive area which was quick to develop, and fought over heavily. One of humankind’s early technological developments was the ability to design, manipulate materials and make structures such as buildings. It was mankind’s obligation from God to subdue the earth. He ultimately gave mankind all the faculties necessary to create great constructions. However, in man’s rebellion against God, this gift was used in ways to honor men and not Him—such as The Tower of Babel. This attempt at building a ziggurat megastructure was humankinds next attempt at playing God. Just a note here—it will blow your mind to look at the similarities in the Mesopotamian ziggurat of biblical days and a typical ziggurat from South America.
In Genesis 11, the tower planners said “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.” The planners of course were referring to making a name for mankind above God’s name. God saw this ability of man’s to centralize power effectively for the purposes of glorifying themselves. He then—in an instant—created world languages to confuse the masses and dispersed them globally. This effectively explains human migration in the ice age, world language and similarities in technology worldwide. Today, humankind over time has once again gathered to challenge God once again.
On January 15th, 2019—CERN unveiled plans for an even larger Large Hadron Collider, with a 100km (62-mile) circumference - about four times longer than the current machine. The Future Circular Collider (FCC) will be almost 10 times more powerful than the current machine too. CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) said the FCC, which should be in use by 2040, would "significantly expand our knowledge of matter and the universe". It was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) between 1998 and 2008 in collaboration with over 10,000 scientists and hundreds of universities and laboratories, as well as more than 100 countries. The final end-game to this complex science experiment is the specific knowledge of this “God-particle” that adheres all of the atoms of physical matter together—which is where we get our physical reality from. This is arguably a tongue-in-cheek observation of humanities last parallel to the ancient Tower of Babel.
This time however, God is not going to come down to the Land of Shinar (the Fertile Crescent) to shake His head in humankinds disappointing direction. No. This should only serve humanity as a reminder. A sign of the times that we live in today. In the Biblical sense, humanity did not learn it’s lesson from The Fall. Nor did mankind learn it’s lesson from The Flood. Nor did mankind learn from the freedom of slavery that Moses gave the Israelites from the Pharaoh in Egypt. Nor did mankind learn from Sodom and Gomorrah. Finally, mankind didn’t learn either from the Tower of Babel. It is not unreasonable to suggest that Europe’s Large Hadron Collider is civilizations last whole combined scientific effort to become God before humanity’s final days.

As major wildfires burn out of control across the entire state of California, one cannot help but ponder how God has dealt with the political realm in a more ancient era of time. I am of course talking in a real omnipotent way. But no. God did not create 10,000 lighting strikes over a short window of time to punish God-rebelling liberal politicians and citizens. Ironically over 10,000 lighting strikes placed around the greater portions of California, including its vastly rich economic resources, ought to be thought-provoking to anybody (even those God-spiting politicians).
“The number of fires – more than 360 across the state as of Wednesday afternoon, 23 of them considered major or complex – has stretched responders resources and forced evacuations in multiple communities, Newsom said. Some of them followed more than 10,000 lightning strikes during record heat over the last three days, according to Newsom. He also said they do not appear to be as severe as last years.”
Numbers 11:1 in the Bible says: “Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the LORD, and when he heard them his anger was aroused. Then fire from the LORD burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp.”
Christians in California were delivered a quick left-hook to the stomach when Gov. Newsom and his turncoat administration decided to place a punctual muzzle on the voice of the congregation. Oddly, this oppressive decree happened only after he gave a speech about how poorly the Corona-virus lock-downs had performed overall in the Golden State anyways. Since then the Christian faithful have been diligently hard at work, praying, and making their hardships known not just to government officials but sending their complaints directly to God. Because “in the hearing of the LORD” -- their complaints have not gone in vain however. Just look at the increase in support of recalling Newsom in your local search engine.
Regardless of whether you are a believer in Christ, the fact remains that persecution, violence, and disaster have now become a very real part of our American fabric today. This is something that is not secretly hidden from view either—its wide-open for everybody to see regardless of faith or spirituality. So is there a coincidental relationship today to the disasters and civil unrest we are experiencing? Here in the land of freedom, prosperity, and liberty? Maybe not? Whatever the case, it should be left up to personal discernment.
You know what they say though, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck…
The Governor said the state faces massive evacuations and scorching conditions. With COVID-19 restrictions, this whole disaster seems out-of-this-world. It is unfortunate that liberal political opponents to traditional America would take something such as disasters and use it as a political force to be pushed onto all residents of California. It is a draconian chess-match against The People. It is all politicized. Pandemics, domestic terrorist attacks, wildfires, lock-downs, regulations, policies, and a state governmental leader who is comparing rightly to pompous historical princes of times past.
I mean come on folks. Where has the support been by the State of California? In the 13th century, the European townsfolk would end up rioting and throwing cabbage and tomatoes at the greedy and insolent elite royalty. A well-versed 19th century author Mr. Heinzen tells us, "The princes, are the chief authors of all poverty and all distress." The word Tribulation in Greek means “distress under pressure.” Or also, to hem someone in, or internal pressure that causes someone to feel confined, restricted, or without options.
It is obvious that the Democratic party's leadership has established California as an anti-conservative stronghold and that persecuting Christians would be their last desperate attempt in attacking the conservative-base nationally. Even further, the mob known as BLM, is a Marxist organization being spun up to destabilize America. Its an organization that has been pushed and fostered by many left-wing institutions, certain governments, and their proxies. BLM and other “grassroots movements” are tools for a much larger and devious plan for the American fabric of society.
Today, we not only stand toe to toe and face to face with evil but also with the reality of earth groaning for its true Creator. Scripture does mention that in the end, good will be represented as bad and bad as good. It also mentions that in the end-times brother will turn away from brother, and sister from sister. The world is now a very divided place. Our last bastion of freedom is also divided.
Remember though that there is hope out there! Just look up friends. Jesus Christ is returning very soon, and sooner than many people would like to accept—even some Christians. He is where your strength comes from. So, chin up now! In the Age of Confusion that we currently exist as humanity, we truly are in a war on principality.

Does your vote actually count?
Do not be misled by Humboldt County election officials who are working behind California Governor Gavin Newsom. There is something going on under everyone’s noses in rural Humboldt County, and seems to be a pilot program for an underhanded mail-in-voting system.
Just because you are mailed a ballot does not mean that you are stuck with one voting option this year either. If you are a resident of Humboldt County, you may have received a November 3rd election flyer in the mail. I insist do not let the “COVID-19 UPDATE” at the top intimidate you. In fact, do not let “BY THE ORDER OF THE GOVERNOR” scare you off either. COVID-19 has nothing to do with this issue.
So in the end, does your vote get counted at all?
Just before the 2016 election all voters were automatically defaulted to "permanent mail-in-voter" status. Nobody in Humboldt County was informed of this switch-over in voter status, and if they were, it was kept on the down-low. I am no lawyer, but I am pretty sure this is illegal to some degree. After investigating, the most effected by this were registered Independent and Republican voters. Due to the nature of the Democratic Party's one-party majority system that plagues the Golden State of California, there is little options for the opposition voter these days.
Here's the scoop: For the November Presidential Elections on November 3rd, 2020 -- all Humboldt County voters (regardless of political affiliation) were automatically switched over (without appropriate notification) to "permanent mail-in-voter" status... again.
That means if you DO NOT RE-REGISTER TO VOTE and you are a Humboldt County voter, if you show up to the polling booth WITHOUT a mail-in-ballot, you will automatically be deferred to vote as "Provisional" as stated on the government website. This means your vote may not possibly count for the final tally on the big election day.
What's a Provisional Ballot?
A provisional ballot is a regular ballot that is placed in a special envelope prior to being put in the ballot box. Provisional ballots are ballots cast by voters who believe they are registered to vote even though their names are not on the official voter registration list at the polling place. Those who have been elected as a "permanent mail-in-voter" status and instead want to vote at their polling place or a vote center, but they did not receive their ballot or do not have their ballot with them--then you may still "cast a ballot."
In this instance, the voter's name is on the polling place roster and the roster notes the voter requested a vote-by-mail ballot. However, the voter states they didn't receive the ballot, lost the ballot, or spoiled the ballot and doesn't have it with them. After the voter casts a provisional ballot, the elections official will check the records to ensure that the voter did not cast their vote-by-mail ballot. If this is the case and the voter's signature on the provisional ballot envelope matches the signature on the voter's registration card, then the voter's provisional ballot will be counted. (Elections Code sections 3016, 14310(f), 15350, 15100 et seq.)
If the voter did vote and return their vote-by-mail ballot before the close of polls on Election Day, then the vote-by-mail ballot will be counted and the provisional ballot will not be counted. If the voter did vote and return their vote-by-mail ballot but failed to sign the vote-by-mail ballot envelope, then the voter's provisional ballot will be counted, provided they complied with the instructions associated with the provisional ballot.
Your provisional ballot will be counted after elections officials have confirmed that you are registered to vote in that county and you did not already vote in that election. You may vote a provisional ballot at any polling place in the county in which you are registered to vote, however, only the elections contests you are eligible to vote for will be counted.
If this year's voting experience is like the 2016 election, your provisional ballot is only counted in the Presidential Election when the race is extremely tight, and in need of further need of critical numbers for the final election tally.
The other problem within provisional voting is that there is little integrity. Volunteer officials counting ballots with any major lack of oversight or with possible corrupt leadership, why not turn this into a discussion. There seems to be an added layer of unnecessary confusion to the ability to simply pick a leader of the United States of America. In fact, the key wording on the official Secretary of State Voting website that should be concerning is "only the elections contests you are eligible to vote for will be counted."
So, what contests are you eligible to vote for in this election when your provisional ballot is cast at a polling booth when you forget to bring your mail-in-ballot? It's not clarified anywhere. So we don't know. All California State says is, "Under the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002, every voter who casts a provisional ballot is entitled to find out from his/her county elections official if the ballot was counted and if not, the reason why it was not counted."
The problem? They may not need a good reason to count your vote as a provisional voter (a type of downgraded voter status it may seem). So who's to gain? The only political party to gain with this underhanded tactic is the only political party in power--which in this case is the Democratic Party. If you are not allowed to vote for your own political preference over the opposition party in the Golden State, then how can this be considered "a fair election" at all?

1. CHECK YOUR VOTER STATUS HERE: https://voterstatus.sos.ca.gov
2. RE-REGISTER TO VOTE HERE: http://registertovote.ca.gov/
3. SHOW UP IN-PERSON AND VOTE WITHOUT ANY HASSLE ON NOVEMBER 3rd, 2020!
We are now at a political crossroads...
Daniel L. Smith,
Not all Republicans agree with Republicans, and not all Democrats agree with Democrats.
This is not just a fair estimation, but a genuine understanding that most of us can agree with.
Recently, a national news outlet released an article that mentioned that The Lincoln Project is working to de-rail the Christian political narrative. They represent a non-profit “political action committee that is composed of Republicans and ex-Republicans that seek to prevent Trump from winning re-election.” They are running hard on all cylinders.
POLITICO maintains that both entities “officially formed a partnership on Wednesday as a means to capitalize on religious voters who dislike Trump or are unhappy with his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the black lives matter protests.”
“If there was ever a time when Republicans, especially people of faith can be moved, it’s probably now,” said Sarah Lenti, executive director at the Lincoln Project. “This is about doing the right thing for our country and that goes back to embracing Biblical principles, such as loving and caring for each other.”
All throughout Trump’s first term, many white evangelicals have expressed unwavering support for the President. But recently, many of Trump’s more liberal Protestant and Catholic advocates are turning away from the president due to his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Vote for Common Good (VCG) and The Lincoln Project are seeking to push Joe Biden, a professing Roman Catholic, as an religious alternative for evangelical voters, many of whom are slated to vote for President Trump in the upcoming 2020 presidential election.”
The Radical Republicans were unmistakably for greater things within the Union. Just like their more moderate peers they wanted emancipation and removal of the racist KKK, however, it was the underhanded attack on Lincolns outlying principles that made this political group come to deliberately smear and attack the fair-minded Presidents good name.
At the end of 1863, Lincoln executed an order to “Reconstruct,” or rebuild the South at the end of the Civil War. It was under the President’s order that if 10% of the population in a state took an oath of loyalty to the federal government, the state would be allowed to declare a new state government recognized by the United States.
The Radical Republicans (congressmen) in office were angry by Lincoln’s mild-mannered approach to what they viewed as almost treason—given his forgiving and light attitude towards the rebellious states that were (at the time) waging war against the Union. The Congressional bill was titled “Wade-Davis” which was named after two members of Congress.
Ultimately, this bill said that a majority of white citizens of a state that had openly rebelled against the federal government would be required to swear loyalty to the Union to be readmitted. Congress went on to approve the Wade-Davis Bill, and President Lincoln (in mid-1864) refused to sign the bill, thus letting the bill die at his desk.
The response to all of this was a group of Congressional Republicans responding by attacking Lincoln and his administration. The Radical Republicans even urged other Republicans to run against Lincoln in that same year’s presidential election! By doing this, these Radical Congressmen became extremists to some degree and purposely alienated many other traditional Republicans.
It is crucial, if not critical, to be very aware of those political and cultural interests in your own camp, as well as those in the opposition. Opportunity is ripe for those people with evil intentions looking to destroy your good works. However, this will only become a guarantee if you continue to remain politically and socially unaware.
