    Nikola Tesla and the Common Good in Year 2020 Nikola Tesla Imagine never having to pay your monthly electrical bill. How would you feel if you were able to simply turn a knob in your home and receive free electrical power through the airwaves, similar to the manner in which you turn on your radio and listen to a radio broadcast for free?The technology for free electricity existed over 100 years ago. But some financial titans in America, including J. Pierpont Morgan, William A. Clark, George Westinghouse, as well as the United States government had too much to lose if electricity were free. They all refused to fund the inventor, a[…]

    May 15, 2020 | 08:52 am

    Where Modern Science Fails Us Every Single Time A new religion in AmericaWe live in a scientific age. That's obvious to anyone with a modicum of formal education.However, it's important to know where science will fail you if you let it. Science cannot speak declaratively on the origin or ultimate end of human life, this world, the universe, or even disease.God alone governs. Science observes.The best scientists who have ever lived agree that God alone governs the world. They taught that people should rely on God because He's the transcendent Creator, outside of time, and trust that He's bringing all things in time to an ultimate grand and[…]

Do research for yourself.PREMISE: In 2008 and 2009, some unsuspecting African women began receiving vaccines from the World Health Organization which contained the contraceptive sterilant Depo-Provera, rendering these vaccinated African women infertile.The women thought they were getting vaccines to fight common diseases.

    Give Others God's Blessing and Don't Shake Hands Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock on Star TrekLeonard Nimoy, the actor who played Spock on the 1960's television show Star Trek, had a signature Vulcan greeting that might be something we consider using in these COVID-19 days. In a video for the Yiddish Book Center's Oral History Project, Leonard Nimoy, who died in 2015,  described how as a boy in the Jewish synagogue, he first saw the hand symbol that he later adopted as the Vulcan greeting (see above left). The Jewish hand signal he observed was five fingers forming the Hebrew letter Shin.Years later, Spock suggested to the director of Star Trek[…]

    An Alarm to a Careless World in the Year of Corona BernbaumJG / CC BY (Creative Commons)A series of severe earthquakes shook London, England, in November 1755, causing massive damage.Those same earthquakes destroyed the city of Lisbon, Portugal, frightening many and causing others to wonder about the unusual seismic activity in a region not typically known for earthquakes.Though there was much widespread concern over the earth-shaking, few people at the time contemplated the shaking as a temporal warning to consider one's relationship with God.However, a Christian nobleman in London wrote to his pastor, a man named William Romaine (1714-1795) and appealed:"Awaken the people and call them from the lethargy in which they have too[…]

  • Dr. Judy Mikovits Deserves Our Respect According to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Former New York D.A.

    Dr. Judy Mikovits Deserves Our Respect According to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Former New York D.A. Dr. Judy MikovitsSome friends recommended that I watch the short video Plandemic. I did. I found myself impressed with the quality of the film, but disturbed by the content of it.I'm no conspiracist.But I'm smart enough to know when something smells rotten.Social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo began censoring Plandemic, removing it from the public's ability to view.The stated reason for the censorship was that the film didn't conform to "our community standards." In other words, the film runs contrary to what those in authority wish you to believe. I then began reading slams against the character of[…]

    Get Yourself a Locke on the Moral Laws of Nature Photo: Martin Falbisoner / CC BY-SA / Creative CommonsIn the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson mentions "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God."Most Americans have never taken time to consider the meaning of "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God." Do you know what they are?The Founding Fathers did. They were well-read in the ancient Greek classical writers.For example, the Greek philosopher Aristotle observed that things in nature behaved in a uniform fashion and asked if there could be a natural law that governed all human beings?Or to put it more directly, the ancients asked if there could[…]
