This is embarrassing. It shames Christ and tarnishes all those who sincerely try to understand Scripture and get people interested in it. There’s just no other way to put it. Lord willing after nothing happens on Sept 23 David Meade will just quietly disappear. But I doubt it.
Here’s a quotation from Meade — it isn’t difficult to see how uninformed this man is:
Jesus lived for 33 years. The name Elohim, which is the name of God to the Jews, was mentioned 33 times [in the Bible],” Meade told The Washington Post. “It’s a very biblically significant, numerologically significant number. I’m talking astronomy. I’m talking the Bible … and merging the two.
Elohim mentioned 33 times? Has this guy ever heard of a concordance? (That’s a rhetorical question).
Elohim occurs thousands of times in the Hebrew Bible. Here’s a list (the file is 250 pp). Here’s a more narrow list — all the places where elohim occurs as the subject of a singular verb (denoting it refers to the lone God of Israel; only 71 pages).
So where does this put Mr. Meade? Our choices are that his comments are ineptitude (he’s really a terrible researcher) or that he’s counting on his followers to not question his teachings (he’s a false teacher and a manipulator). Nice choice.
Instead of ignoring folks like Mr. Meade, the serious Church should call him out. He’s an embarrassment to Bible study and Christian ethics. The same can be said for others who teach the same sort of nonsense that weren’t interviewed by the Huffington Post.
The only question now is, after nothing happens on Sept 23 will he apologize and repent or just lie about a contrived fulfillment?
On sept. 9, 2017 i was observing the day time sky with my flir one infa red camera attachment to my i phone 5. i saw what i thought was a bright object in the sky with clouds or smoke behind it. i took several pictures, still pictures, then turned my video on. i pan left to show where the sun is and how large. then i pan right searching for the smoke or meteor in the sky. i took a video of an object, ufo or military vechile highh in the near earth orbit of the sky, zapping a meteor. the meteor turns to dust. i have the video and still photos of this happening. it was about 60-70 degrees above the horizon looking northwest. if a degree is measured in a clenched fist format.
this happened in the day time, at 5:45 pm. on sept. 9, 2017 , in my back yard in chico, california. 95928.
i took several flir one digital photos, and a digital flir one video.

I was using my flir one infa red attachment to my i phone 5 camera to observe the sky, as i have seen an unknown large planet in the sky. i saw some birds and stars or meteors . the birds were noticeably birds flying in the view o my camera. the video is about 4:24 minutes long. during the last 19 seconds a bright object comes from the bottom left in the view of my camera heading south east but directly above me in the night sky. it continues to cross the mid line, and then backs up, stops, then backs up again and zaps a meteor. i presume to knock it out of its orbit. then it continues on its path. this was a ufo or military vechile traveling in near earth orbit zapping an incoming meteor.
this video was taken on friday, september 1, 2017, 10:21:33 pm, looking straight up in the sky, about 70 degrees from the horizon looking north east, in my back yard in chico, california.
digtal video is attached. the video itself is 4 minutes and 24 seconds long, but the event happens during the last 19 seconds of the video. the object moves from the bottom left up towards the top right of the video, stops, then moves back down towards a bright meteor object. then continues on towards the top right…
Firestorm: Dr. James E. McDonald’s Fight for UFO Science is written by the veteran UFO researcher Ann Druffel.

An exoplanet twice the size of Jupiter is hot, egg-shaped and coal-black.
Wasp-12b orbits around a Sun-like star some 1,400 light-years away. It makes a complete orbit around its sun in just 24 hours because it lies so close to its star, and the proximity pushes the temperature to around 4,700 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s so hot that molecules there are broken down into atomic hydrogen and helium, and the extreme conditions give it an albedo of just .064, making the planet’s atmosphere even d
“For bees the flower is the fountain of life. For flowers, the bee is the messenger of love.”
In honor of National Honey Month we’ve highlighted a few citizen science projects you can do to help us better understand our buzzing friends the bees. From honey bees to bumble bees, there’s something for everyone.

The “cat lady” may be more than just a stereotype. After investigating roughly 30 people who collected nearly 1,400 animals total in southern Brazil, researchers now suggest that such men and women are afflicted with what they called animal hoarding disorder—not to be lumped in with object hoarding.
The first scientific reports of people living with an excessive number of animals first appeared in 1981. Animal hoarding is currently thought of a variant of hoarding disorder, in which peopl
Not all science needs to be so serious. Since 1991, the Ig Nobel Prize ceremony has proven that the best scientific research can sometimes be a mix of impactful and irreverent.
Let’s check out this year’s winners, broken down by scientific category.
Physics: “On the Rheology of Cats”
Cat owners are familiar with the peculiar quality of felines to fill whatever vessel they occupy, much like a liquid. So it’s only appropriate that the field of rheology, or the branch of physics that s
The Argentine media published on September 13, 2017 the news that the Corrientes police has photographed a supposed alien being in an area called ‘Parque Miter’ near the capital of Corrientes.
After being warned by a group of young people police officers visited the place and saw ‘a strange person’ with a strange behavior walking around.

When they want to contact and to identify the ‘strange person’ they realized that the appearance was more likely an extraterrestrial being on which they took an image of the supposed alien.
At the moment the police officers tried to approach the being, it escaped by jumping into the waters of the Paraná River and disappeared, reports news outlet Diarioprimeralinea.

While it is not the first time people have captured images of extraterrestrials in Argentina, we are not sure whether the being depicted in the image is a real alien, fake or a publicity stunt, given that they managed to capture the perfect image in the middle of the night.
