No account of the quest for the Holy Grail is complete without mention of Joseph of Arimathea. Here is a figure both 'historical' and 'memed' that is referenced in the New Testaments of the bible, apocryphal works such as the Gospel of Nicodemus, the works of St. john Chrysostom even the inspiration for William Blake's hymn Jerusalem. The legend of Joseph became connected to the legend of King Arthur in the 12th century as the first guardian of the Holy Grail.

Who is Joseph?Collapse )
exorcist
(Taken from www.remnantnewspaper.com):

According to a certified Filipino exorcist, women are prone to demonic possession because they are generally more “psychic and intuitive” than men. “They are more open to the spiritual world,” said Fr. Jose Francisco Syquia, a professor of spiritual theology at the San Carlos Seminary and one of the few “designated” exorcists in the local Catholic hierarchy,” as quoted by The Inquirer News Service (Nov. 1, 2005). Fr. Syquia has worked with Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican’s Chief Exorcist.

THE RULE AND THE RAVEN

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

This is a powerful sacrament against evil. Roman Catholic priests have been known to carry it for protection when performing the Rituale Romanum, or church-approved exorcism. Craved into the medal are the initial letters of a Latin prayer of exorcism against Satan:
Vade retro Satana! Nunquam suade mihi vana! Sunt mala quae libas. Ipse venena bibas! (Begone Satan! Never tempt me with your vanities! What you offer me is evil. Drink the poison yourself!)

The legendary patriarch is none other than St. Benedict, the founder of the Monte Cassino monastary and one of the key innovators of monastic values and order. His entire life there have been instances of him being absolutely protected against ill-harm and evil intention - A poisoned cup broke into pieces when he made a sign of the cross before it, and a raven swooped down and stole away a poisoned loaf of bread that he was offered.

The medal is also called the medal-cross of St. Benedict as the symbolic cross is prominently depicted.

Do ghosts only appear at night? It seems that way, if stories and experiences are anything to go by. (My Great grandmother once claimed to have seen a ghost in broad daylight, but that's for another entry).

Whether it’s seeing a ghost, UFO, or having a psychic experience, night time is the peak time. And if the following theory is true, then midnight is 'THE' best time. The witching hour. The dark of night. The enchantment hour.

The theory.Collapse )
19th-Dec-2005 - OCCAM'S RAZOR
buffalo shaman
In its simplest form, Occam's Razor states that one should make no more assumptions than needed. Put into everyday language, it says

'Pluralitas non est ponenda sine necessitate' [Latin]
or
'Given two equally predictive theories, choose the simpler'.

16th-Dec-2005 - THE BOOK OF ENOCH

"that there were angels who consented to fall from heaven that they might have intercourse with daughters of earth. For in those days the sons of men having multiplied, there were born to them daughters of great beauty. And when the angels, or sons of heaven, beheld them, they were filled with desire; wherefore they said to one another: 'Come let us choose wives from among the race of man, and let us beget children.' Their leader Samyasa, answered thereupon and said: 'Perchance you will be wanting in the courage to fulfill this resolution, and then I alone shall be answerable for your fall.' But they swore that they would in no wise repent and that they would achieve their whole design. Now there were two hundred who descended Mount Harmon, and it was from this time that the mountain received its designation, which signifies Mount of the Oath. Hereinafter follow the names of those angelic leaders who descended with this object: Samyasa, chief among all, Urakabarameel, Azibeel, Tamiel, Ramuel, Danel, Azkeel, Sarakuyal, Asael, Armers, Batraal, Anane, Sameveel, Ertrael, Turel, Jomiael, Arizial. They took wives with whom they had intercourse, to whom they also taught Magic, the art of enchantment and the diverse properties of roots and trees. Amazarac gave instruction in all secrets of sorcerers; Barkaial was the master of those who study the stars; Akibeel manifested signs; and Azaradel taught the motions of the moon."

16th-Dec-2005 - IMPOSSIBLE THINGS HAPPEN
buffalo shaman
"Impossible things happen. When they do happen, most people just deal with it. Today, like every day, roughly five thousand people on the face of the planet will experience one-chance-in-a-million things, and not one of them will refuse to believe their senses. Most of them will say the equivalent, in their own language, of "Funny old world, isn't it?" and just keep going." - Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys.

To be fair, there are cases of abductions reported all over the world involving many different races and cultures. Are their experiences similar?

Here's a generally accepted version of what transpires during an abduction:

Here's an intelligent (somewhat rambling) hypothesis of 'whites only abductions':
