Strange Sounds Heard All Around The World

Something strange is happening all around the world. Weird noises have  been recorded in dozens of places and even at a packed stadium during a baseball game.

Some of these noises sound like the whooshing of a giant flame throwing machine. Others sound like the fearsome roars of a giant animal. Other groaning sounds are so large that the very stuff of the planet seems to be grinding and rolling around.

If you would like to see the videos first,  scroll down now and click on the “more” tab. 

The sounds did not start recently. Many of the videos go back to last Winter or Spring and were not released until the world started freaking out over the scariest video, which was taken in a Canadian forest.

And, yes, there are sounds in some of the videos that could be horns. Of course the horns are leading to thoughts that this is it! Some people have not even watched the videos or realize that there are many sounds that are being heard, not just horns. So of course those people want to believe that this is the first sounding of those apocalypse horns! We are in for it! Run for the hills!

Wait.

There are many sounds in the videos and those sounds can be interpreted in different ways. The “whooshing” sound, for example, is described as a flamethrower sound by those on the scene, while those listening on low quality PC speakers simply hear a repetitive whooshing or booming sound.

There are some sounds that are like horns, but many of us who have worked around big engines know that a hornlike sound can be produced.

At the end of this post are three of the videos. One is a collection of several incidents. After listening for yourselves feel free to tell us what you think.

Here is a discussion of the five most obvious topics that are coming up: The Book of Revelation, HAARP, the Mayan Calendar, hoaxers and opportunists.

 

THE HORNS, THE BOOK, AND THE WORLD

Let us remember what is said in the Book of Revelations before those ancient Mayans have us running for the hills:

The entire Book of Revelations is, on a very basic level, like this:  Revelation makes use of symbolism and visions, mentions angelic mediators, has bizarre imagery, declares divine judgment, emphasizes the Kingdom of God, prophesies a new heaven and a new earth, and consists of a dualism of ages, in other words a present world and a World to Come. (Wikipedia Revelations)

The relevant passages that refer to horns are in Revelation 9 through 11. Here is Bible Gateway, starting at Revelation 1. Please give it a full reading.

The verses that refer to horns are summarized here:

And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God

–Revelation 9:13

And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. –Revelation 8:2

As each of the seven angels sound, something horrific and huge happens to the Earth, part of the sun is destroyed, the star Wormwood impacts the Earth, hail and fire mixed with blood come down and destroy huge chunks of life, a great fiery mountain falls into the sea and more happens.

Then the seventh angel sounds:

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

—Revelation 11:15

 

HAARP
HAARP is the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. According to the official fact page,

“The goal of this program is to further advance our knowledge of the physical and electrical properties of the Earth’s ionosphere which can affect our military and civilian communication and navigation systems.

The HAARP program operates a world-class ionospheric research facility located in Gakona, Alaska.”

The problem with this program is that there is secrecy in the face of claims that there is neither a secrecy classification, nor are there classified documents about the program.

There were annual open houses where the public was allowed to visit the HAARP array until the Summer of 2010. Now, visitors are not allowed at the HAARP facility.

Not allowing the public to see for themselves is the stuff that makes a conspiracy buff sit up and pay attention.

There have been many claims about HAARP causing earthquakes, tornadoes, severe storms and floods, bird flu and a host of other problems. Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela, once claimed that HAARP caused the Haiti earthquake by deployment of HAARP as some form of weapon.

Wikipedia has a fairly good list and description of the  major conspiracy theories that surround HAARP.

Author’s note: The author of this article refuses to play into the “Anti Wikipedia” hysteria, having met several academics who think that the site is a fine source of information when a person uses multiple sources as they should.

 

THE HOAX, THE MOVIES, AND THE PUBLICITY GAME

Some of the sounds are identical to sound effects heard in such films as “War of the Worlds” and “Cloverfield”, which makes skeptical listeners wonder if the strange noises are part of a massive public relations stunt for an upcoming film release.

Geeks of Doom and many others have identified two blockbuster monster movies that will be released in 2012:  Cloverfield II and a fresh Godzilla remake.

But neither Geeks of Doom nor any major Hollywood insiders  have given any confessions that the videos are publicity hoaxes.

 

THOSE CRAFTY MAYANS

First of all, the Mayans never predicted that 2012 would bring us an apocalypse or be the year of doomsday. They made many calendars, and the longest one is called the “Long Count” calendar. They used the calendars to predict future events or to record past events.

Most of their calendars went for 52 years, which was the average lifetime of a Mayan.

These calendars were too short for long term timekeeping, so the Long Calendar was invented.

According to Discovery,

“The Mayans set this calendar to begin in the year 3114 B.C. (according to our modern Gregorian calendar). If the Long Count began in 3114 B.C. and it’s calculated to continue for 5126 years, the “end date” will be — you guessed it — 2012 A.D.

Further refinement sets the date to Dec. 21, the day of the winter solstice for the Northern Hemisphere.

“The Maya were highly skilled astronomers who kept meticulous records of the night sky. They documented the phases of the moon, recorded eclipses and even tracked the movement of Venus. In fact, the Venus cycle was an important calendar for the Maya. Their records enabled them to predict future astronomical cycles with great accuracy.”

Now, convert all of that to our Gregorian Calendar, which has some odd sociopolitical quirks thrown into it.  Then calculate the changes that have happened in our visible skies over 5126 of  any civilization’s years, and see how problems with using the Mayan calendar to predict anything are bound to come up.

 

EVERYBODY ELSE WITH A DOG IN THE HUNT

This is a time when opportunists, money grubbers and charismatic creeps of all kinds will prey upon the gullible and the weak minded. This is not a time to do anything but prepare (as we have been warned to do ) for all kinds of natural and man made disasters.

Otherwise, if the apocalypse is coming, then Christians should know what to do and realize that the truth will finally find a way.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE VIDEOS.

The Perfect Storm of Technology: 2012

 

 

I underwent the perfect storm of technology during the past two months.

I hate AT&T permanently. Their billing fiasco and arrogance have ruined their reputation with me. Comcast is no better, having done a bait and switch over a rebate that was promised, then withdrawn. It was their error, but who cares?

My smartphone was up for an upgrade and my old original Droid was barely hanging on. I loved that phone, but the fees through Verizon were off the charts. I seriously considered going back to a basic flip phone, but ended up with an insane deal through Amazon for an HTC Thunderbolt. OMG.

I dove deeply into Cyber Monday and came up for air with a not so stellar HP Mini 110. After several rounds with tech support, followed by a three day stay with Geek Squad, the little netbook turned out to be a wonderful way to get out of the house and to write and research in better settings.

So here are my experiences so far. Take a trip with me and feel free to add your comments, recommendations and inputs!

 

There cannot be enough warnings about scams and hackers.

My adventures in cheap netbook land.

I have been writing articles about “best” applications for the Android for years. Here are my latest recommendations for the HTC Thunderbolt and other hot new Android devices. 

 

 

Stories Of Interest

Here are some links to my stories for the past couple of weeks. It’s been a busy time and a lot of interesting events have been worthy of a summary of the facts. 

 

How I love to write

I love to help the reader with more information and background than the average news article presents. This may involve deciphering an insider’s terminology, looking into the history of someone or something, or giving more background to a complicated article or event. 

A lot of times, we get interested when a series of events is reaching an interesting point. There are new computers and tablets that are gossiped about, but we get no details until the top reviewers can actually work with the devices and tell us what they think of them.

Sometimes, a warning needs to be repeated about such things as computer and internet scams, why we should care about the failed Congressional Supercommittee, and that the Fukushima nuclear disaster is far from over.

And a good recipe is something of beauty to share. The best part is when new cooks actually learn the basics of preparing their own tasty, healthy, cheaper and better food.

So here are some stories and blogs that help to get the fuller picture, along with a couple of recipes that will give the new and curious cook some ideas about basic foods.

 

WE KNOW ABOUT INTERNET AND COMPUTER PHISHING SCAMS, BUT WHAT ABOUT SMARTPHONE VISHING AND SMISHING SCAMS?

 

 

DID YOU KNOW THAT, IF YOU HAVE A KINDLE PREMIUM ACCOUNT, YOU CAN BORROW AND RENT BOOKS FOR FREE OR FOR LOW COST? ALSO,  EVERYONE CAN FIND FREE PUBLIC DOMAIN BOOKS AT KINDLE AND ELSEWHERE.

 

 

FEW HAVE CONSIDERED THAT THE FUKUSHIMA RADIATION IS COMING TO AMERICA AND THAT IT HAS BUILT UP OVER TIME. THE DISASTER THAT WILL NOT END EVEN WHEN THE MEDIA FAILS TO TELL US ABOUT IT.

Technological Marvels That Have Saved Humanity From Trouble And Difficulty (Definitely Satire!)

Since the dawn of man, humans have searched for Dawn. Humans need to have washing liquid or something that can get the fat and grease off of hands and plates!

Since the dawn of man, humans have longed for lightweight, but super useful stuff that would hold up against all kinds of heat, cold, dropping, stabbing, piercing, burning and sinking under water.

Since the dawn of man, humans have striven to invent, make and distribute cheap crap in the most effective ways possible.

Humans have now reached the point where technological marvels that make life wonderful are always being honored and recognized for their goodness.

Here are some of my personal favorites.

The Sacramento Occupaton At Cesar Chavez Park (I am very proud of this one)

After setting out for César Chávez Park in downtown Sacramento, California, it was clear that parking was going to be an issue.

Parking is always an issue in Downtown Sacramento, which is why most residents of the region do all that they can to avoid the place.

But yesterday, there were big doings in César Chávez Park. Several hundred children showed up to do a “flash mob” dance. After midnight, about 16 of the protesters were arrested in a “catch and release” program for violating park rules by blocking the park entrances or staying in the park after closing hours. The arrested individuals were either lying or sitting at the 9th and K street entrance.

These hardy souls braved a blustery day to start the first wave of the ongoing Sacramento Occupation style version of the Occupy Wall Street Protests.

But what a contrast!

Happy Sunday: We Are Stewards Of The Earth

There has been a lot of talk about our responsibility for the planet. We cause a lot of damage in the course of living our lives. We contribute methane to the atmosphere as we live, process food, and die. The many animals  that we breed, tend and eat contribute methane to the atmosphere as they live, process food and die.

We generate technology, then throw it away when it no longer functions. We do not build our tools and toys to last. We do not repair and keep our tools and toys.  Our technology represents reformation and reformulation of the Earth’s substances in ways that have never happened before.

We make huge amounts of new substance, contribute huge amounts of new substance to the planet, and throw away huge amounts of new substance. Styrofoam and other foams that do not decompose, the plastics that offer so much convenience and the oil and gas that gives us so much mobility makes us happy while it all makes the planet sick.

We have severed ourselves from the Earth, from other life forms and from each other. When we immerse ourselves in the waters or play in the snow, it is with so much attention toward thrills, getting to somewhere, and kills that we do not appreciate or respect the land and life.

But how does our religion come into it? What is the connection between our faith in God and the Earth?

Changes at Facebook bothering you? Do not Despair!

 

I have written an article that will give some great, basic tips for getting to know the new pages, features and formats well enough to function at the world’s giant social network. 

Facebook actually did not do much announcing. Facebook simply changed the way that the world’s largest social network works, and millions are struggling to corral the mess. 

The changes have made Facebook into an entirely new experience. Click on your own screen name at the top navigation bar and your own wall posts will come up. The right hand feed is the infamous “ticker” and the left hand feed will showcase friends and other personal items.

Click on the “Home” page, and much more will show up, including the news feeds in the center, the ticker on the right and a host of features in the left column.
