And this comes today from Cairo. No less than TIME.com reports on weekly sessions of casting out demons in Cairo. St. Samaan’s Church has a curious history (read all about the Miracle of their founding and the moving of a mountain in the 10th century AD at their website. Note the bold type that I’ve emphasized that attributes to the ‘jinn’ a fear of Coptic Christians over Muslim Imans:
But there is at least one sphere of Egyptian contemporary life where interfaith cooperation perseveres, and that is at weekly exorcisms performed by one of the country’s most celebrated priests, Father Sama’an Ibrahim. He is one of the few priests in Egypt who can preform exorcisms — not even the Coptic Pope can — and his reputation for expelling demons of all kinds extends well beyond his Christian flock. Muslim Imams can do exorcisms as well, explains the woman, who declined to give her name, but her mother’s case required some extra muscle. “We went to a mosque first for healing, but the demons who harm her are more afraid of the Christian priest.” [emphasis mine]
No, it isn’t an excerpt from a remake of The Thing, nor is this a hoax. Apparently, a major new virus has been discovered lying beneath 100 feet of ice, and it’s ALIVE:
Tests show that it attacks amoebas, which are single-celled organisms, but does not infect humans or other animals.Co-author Dr Chantal Abergel, also from the CNRS, said: “It comes into the cell, multiplies and finally kills the cell. It is able to kill the amoeba – but it won’t infect a human cell.”
There’s much more buried within the body of the article.
Prof Claverie warns that exposing the deep layers could expose new viral threats.
He said: “It is a recipe for disaster. If you start having industrial explorations, people will start to move around the deep permafrost layers. Through mining and drilling, those old layers will be penetrated and this is where the danger is coming from.”
He told BBC News that ancient strains of the smallpox virus, which was declared eradicated 30 years ago, could pose a risk.
“If it is true that these viruses survive in the same way those amoeba viruses survive, then smallpox is not eradicated from the planet – only the surface,” he said. [emphasis mine]
Add this to the growing ‘Smallpox’ Meme that’s been spinning for about five years. Just sayin’….
A few years ago, at the first Future Congress in Branson, I had the honor of being interviewed for a documentary film put together by Tom Horn discussing the cutting edge science of transhumanism. Horn also filmed a question and answer session with me in Colorado last summer at the Prophecy in the News conference. (Thanks, Tom!) If you’ve not heard about transhumanism, then you’re not alone. Many intelligent people are blissfully unaware of a drive to ‘better’ mankind via genetic- and/or computer-enhancement. Homo silica may one day be a reality as scientists seek to create Adam 2.0. Here’s a peek at the newly released trailer for Horn’s doc:
Screen cap from video (linked below) shows a black bird attacking one of the doves of peace.
Talk about omens! After calling for peace and an end to protests in Ukraine, Pope Francis watched as two children released doves into St. Peter’s Square. However, no sooner had the doves taken flight than they were under attack by other birds! Is it a sign of the times? One wonders. You can see the AP report plus video here (warning, disturbing images):
I follow loads of interesting folks on Twitter–don’t you? Most post about weather, oddities in the news, or just complain (boy, I see a lot of those coming from Hollywood types), but today’s Matt Drudge post leaves one wondering if he knows something we don’t.
