Life in the universe may not be as abundant as you’d think with millions of potential earth like planets

..so say scientists who ponder if life on earth is a fluke..

And I wonder this based on the pondering of the highly educated: If life on earth is a fluke then it makes me almost have to ask whether the human species is a parasite? Did earth develop a disease named life? Or is it instead a message that somewhere the old debated book we call the Bible is on to something that science is finally realizing: Human are special and in the image of God?

Weighty questions, I guess, for a weekend..?

We’ve been hearing about potentially millions of billions of trillions of planets existing in the galaxy for months now with the discoveries that Kepler has given us. Finally, it appears that astronomers have found a planet that people could maybe live on. But… Scientists found the planet, Gliese 667Cc, orbiting around a red dwarf star, 22 light years away from the earth. Which is really far away.. So don’t pack your bags yet. You’re confined to the little blue dot for the time being. Future generations though may make it more important to get off this dot depending on how many resources have been depleted by the time we master the art of light year travel..

Fly me to the moon.. or the sun

A few weeks ago, a photo made the Internet rounds.. It appeared to show a spaceship docking near the sun.. It was discredited and most reputable people said it was not an alien spacecraft but instead a potential optical illusion.

Enter the newest photo: This one seems to be a little better in quality and a little more mysterious. It appears to show some type of craft flying near the sun..

The images come from NASA. NASA of course didn't release them heralding the new age of disclosure.. I assume we will soon hear those officials press releases describing 'optical illusions' or flares or camera errors.. Or something.
Or maybe this.. an alien craft.
Which would have to be pretty strong to be that close to the immense ball of fire, right?

And I'm fully aware that most will say with confidence no way.
I just curiously say what if.
What if.

Just when you thought you were getting ahead of the game. . . comes this study
Sure, my pudding expires December 21 2012 and lots of other people think people in general will, too. But we can’t lose hope. Fukushima may have blasted the planet with extreme radiation.. others worry about our online rights being suddenly stripped with the next bill that has too long of an acronym to even understand anymore. And the weather is crazy, isn’t it? Slightly maddening cows hopefully didn’t get into our meat supply, even though South Korea banned our imports. We will still eat them. Beef, it’s what for dinner. 20 years later you may go mad, too.
But all that aside, life isn’t that bad, right?
That’s right.. not just a few weeks, or a month.. or a year or two. No, this report goes all the way: A whole century. But the time humans make it to the 22nd, if we should be so lucky as a species, generations may look back on us in 2012 and say ‘these poor schmucks didn’t know what was about to hit them!’
The Royal Society seems to know. They say world population needs to be ‘stabalised’ (British spelling) in order to take awayeth from the rich nations and giveth to the poor nations.  Yes, indeed. Agenda 21 anyone? Perhaps conspiracy theories of population control are right after all?
What surprised me was that this report didn’t talk much about the most pressing issue set to face our world in the next 20 or so years: Water. Just peruse your local video rental store…..oh wait they are all shut down… Go to Netflix, you won’t find these in the local RedBox: 5 documentaries that you must see to understand the water crisis that we face—in our lifetime.. 
But instead of worrying about clean water and air… let’s frack. Seriously.. Fracking make it all go away.
But it does seem to cause an increase in manmade earthquakes, doesn’t it? If you care. Most of the fracking in rural areas anyway. And what person REALLY cares about the rural area anyway. 
Besides the Obama administration, which wants to limit what farmhands can do. 
Little House on the Prairie. Now regulated!?
Get me Bill Gates! I need a vaccine.
My rambling Thursday morning whatever. Over and out.

It's 2:42 AM or PM somewhere: Art Bell's newest photo

So what is he thinking.. the knowing eyes... will he return? Will he stick to shortwave.. Ham is his handle and Coast is the past? Interesting new photo of Art Bell posted tonight by Mr. Bell himself on his Facebook page. Radio equipment in the back, apparently not getting dusty and actually quite clean after the 2011 fire extinguisher incident.

So now what?
Until we know, you can find him hamming it up on Echolink, if you have the technological knowledge to do so.

A UK boom

The worldwide phenomenon or strange earth sounds continues.. this time in the UK where loud booms have been reported to officials in Oxford..

The OXFORD MAIL reports better than Earth Informer could on this one:
Fire crews are also investigating the source of the noise and Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue are liaising with neighbouring counties.
Thames Valley Police duty inspector Phil Rogers said people have reported the noise, from Chipping Norton, Burford, Banbury and North Newington, right out to Swindon and Warwick.

All that shaking.. rattling.. and rolling

Ohio saw several mini earthquakes that some have tied to natural gas drilling. Other areas in the United States has also seen shaking where blasting has taken place. Some even attribute last year's big Mid-Atlantic quake that was felt all the way to Canada on some type of explosives in the ground or drilling.

And now this: US government scientists are now stating that "almost certainly" the recent uptick in United States earthquakes can be blamed on one source: Fracking. Just another albatross tied around the neck of the controversial method of extracting natural gas from the ground.

USGS researchers report that midsection seismic activity averaged about 20 a year until the year 2000. In 2011, there were 134 instances of shaking..

The quakes are "fairly small," as they report. But they are  numerous. And when they strike the area not used to seeing them, they are quite alarming. Last year's East Coast rattle unnerved millions of people, caused the National Monument to crack, and forced evacuations of almost all government buildings, both state and federal, across the affected region of the United States. It was a big deal--without life or much limb being hurt.. but a big deal nonetheless.

And now all of this because of fracking? Does it make you wonder what other dangers lurk in our near future? if fracking can do this.. what are we doing to the actual inside of the earth..?
Could this be why Kiev has groaned? Why Clintonville WI moaned? Why the earth's trumpets are blazing with hornlike sounds all over the planet? I don't know. No one does. But the USGS experts are at least a little closer to telling us why so many earthquakes seem to be taking place all over the world..

This could be a very big deal for the Midwest

Today and this weekend, the potential exists for violent thunderstorms and equally violent tornadoes.. Mike Smith's weather blog *which you should follow* has more on the potential for storms in Oklahoma, Nebraska, Texas.. Oklahoma City, Topeka, and Wichita seem to be in the focal point of the real bad stuff..

Frighteningly this appears to be primarily a night time event--more concerning being that people could be sleeping when tornado sirens start to ring...


Texas just saw waist deep hail. And after this year's tornado activity that already swept away towns across the nation this year, this situation tonight and tomorrow should be taken very seriously. Prepare now and don't be caught off guard.

When a tornado is near: Don't be near windows, try getting to the lowest portion of your home that is protected by concrete walls, a basement is potentially the safest place during a big storm. 

Let's hope this passes without much fanfare. But the elements sadly look positive to create a ripe environment for deadly weather..

Is this the quickening?

This Earth seems to be going through an incredible planetary belch over the past several hours..

We have 8+ earthquakes hitting in Indonesia.
We saw a tremendous amount of movement after this earthshaking took place.. a quake in Oregon, Mexico, California.. even in the East about 200 miles or so off the coast of Maryland. Skeptics who argue that quakes are not connected may have even been shocked by just how many earthquakes took place after the big rumble seemed to begin the tidal wave of shaking... 



Coming later this week: Tornadoes may yet hit parts of the Midwest.


Mainstream media didn't pay much attention to really of of this, too. Did you notice that?
All the while it appears that we are seeing an uptick in earth changes, disasters.. and a quickening. A true quickening. Everything seemingly is out of whack. The earth is moving ... plates are shifting.. The crust is unstable.

Not trying to cause fear.. not trying to cause anxiety. Though after the day we have seen with so many rumbles and severe weather in just one day across the planet, how can one not have some type of anxiety. Be ready.. have a plan. Pray for the best. Hope for the worst. And take a St. John's Wort. Things may get bumpier as we go forward. I just hope there is a God who truly does have this planet in his protective net....

The final newsworthy article about North Korea floating across newswires and the internet tonight is this: You thought the Soviet gulags were bad? You maybe didn't see this article on North Korean camps in which 150,000 simply languish in prison camps. Entire families suffer and die in these prison camps, according to the UN report.. also in the prison: Children and grandparents for 'political crimes' of their family members.

The AP reports this on the camps:
The labor colonies are enclosed behind barbed wire and electrified fences, mainly in the north and north central mountains of the country, the report says, alleging high rates of death in detention due to systemic mistreatment, torture, execution and malnutrition.
The report says former prisoners were able to identify their former barrack and houses, work sites, execution grounds and other landmarks in the camps via imagery available through Google Earth.
The committee says the report's findings contradict a December 2009 statement by North Korea to the United Nations Human Rights Council that the political prisoner camps don't exist
Did you ever get that pit of your stomach feeling where you know the world is truly mad? I have it now...
