  1. My goal is to the be the first Lotto Winner to win the MEGA Millions and the Power Ball back to back.... That would definitely be a God miracle. I just wanted to put it into words so when it happens you know I prophesied it.

  4. No, but there is a secret hand shake and a "I Love Trump" Hipbone Tattoo requirement. .
  5. Written by James Edward Kamis, guest post on November 6, 2018. Posted in Latest news Discovery Of Massive Volcanic CO2 Emissions Puts Damper On Global Warming Theory Recent research shows that the volume of volcanic CO2 currently being emitted into Earth’s atmosphere is far greater than previously calculated, challenging the validity of the man-made global warming theory. Figure 1.) Volcanic gas emissions breakthrough overlying fractured and partially melted glacial ice sheet. (Image credits: Christina Neal, AVO/USGS) The cornerstone principle of the global warming theory, anthropogenic global warming (AGW), is built on the premise that significant increases of modern era human-induced CO2 emissions have acted to unnaturally warm Earth’s atmosphere. A warmed atmosphere that directly, or in some cases indirectly fuels anomalous environmental disasters such as ocean warming, alteration of ocean chemistry, polar ice sheet melting, global sea level rise, coral bleaching and most importantly dramatic changes in climate. There are numerous major problems with the AGW principle. Identification of Volcanic vs. Man-made CO2 Natural volcanic and man-made CO2 emissions have the exact same and very distinctive carbon isotopic fingerprint. It is therefore scientifically impossible to distinguish the difference between volcanic CO2 and human-induced CO2 from the burning of fossil fuels (see here). This major problem with the AGW principle has been rationalized away by consensus climate scientists who insist, based supposedly reliable research, that volcanic emissions are minuscule in comparison to human-induced CO2 emissions (Gerlach 1991). Terrance Gerlach’s volcanic CO2 calculation was based on just 7 actively erupting land volcanoes and three actively erupting ocean floor hydrothermal vents (seafloor hot geysers). Utilizing gas emission data from this very limited number of volcanic features, Gerlach estimated that the volume of natural volcanic CO2 emissions is 100 to 150 times less than the volume of man-made CO2 emissions from the burning of fossil fuels and therefore of no consequence. To put this calculation process into perspective, the Earth is home to 1,500 land volcanoes and 900,000 seafloor volcanoes/hydrothermal vents. By sampling just an extremely small percent of these volcanic features it is impossible to imagine that the calculation is correct. Especially knowing that volcanic activity varies greatly from area to area, volcano to volcano, and through time. Utilizing just 0.001 percent (10/901,500) of Earth’s volcanic features to calculate volcanic CO2 emissions does not inspire confidence in the resulting value. Non-Erupting Volcanoes Can Emit Massive Amounts of CO2 into Earth’s Atmosphere Recent geological research by the University of Leeds and others proves that non-erupting volcanoes can emit massive amounts of CO2 into Earth’s atmosphere and oceans. The Gerlach calculation and all follow-up calculations utilized volcanic CO2 rates from actively erupting volcanoes. Lost in the numerous recent media articles concerning the argument of when, or if Iceland’s Katla Volcano will erupt is the discovery that this non-erupting subglacial volcano is currently emitting staggering amounts of CO2 into Earth’s atmosphere! Researchers from the University of Leeds who studied the Katla Volcano said this. “We discovered that Katla volcano in Iceland is a globally important source of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) in spite of being previously assumed to be a minor gas emitter. Volcanoes are a key natural source of atmospheric CO2 but estimates of the total global amount of CO2 that volcanoes emit are based on only a small number of active volcanoes. Very few volcanoes which are covered by glacial ice have been measured for gas emissions, probably because they tend to be difficult to access and often do not have obvious degassing vents. Through high‐precision airborne measurements and atmospheric dispersion modeling, we show that Katla, a highly hazardous subglacial volcano which last erupted 100 years ago, is one of the largest volcanic sources of CO2 on Earth, releasing up to 5% of total global volcanic emissions. This is significant in the context of a growing awareness that natural CO2 sources have to be more accurately quantified in climate assessments and we recommend urgent investigations of other subglacial volcanoes worldwide.”(see here) The Number of Volcanoes Emitting CO2 into the Atmosphere at Any One Time The calculation of the total yearly volume of volcanic CO2 emitted into the atmosphere is based on the presumption that very few volcanoes are erupting at any one time. Scientists from various worldwide volcano research institutions, most notably the United States Geological Survey, have estimated this number to be 20. This very low number has been challenged by many scientists including those at NASA. A multinational team led by NASA has initiated a high-resolution satellite CO2 monitoring project (see here). This project is focused on determining how many geological features are emitting CO2 at any one time. This project may eventually give scientists a better idea of how many land volcanoes are emitting CO2 at any one time. However, it is doubtful the project will properly record ocean CO2 emissions from Earth’s 900,000 deep ocean floor and very difficult to monitor volcanic features. In any case, this project is certainly a step forward towards achieving a better understanding of the climate influence of volcanic CO2 emissions. The Amount of CO2 and heat infused into Earth’s Oceans by Seafloor Geological Features About 71% of Earth’s surface is covered by oceans making it a water, not land, planet. For many years now, scientists have contended that the nearly one million geological features present in these vast ocean regions have played a minimal role in heating and chemically charging ocean seawater. Instead of contending that man-made atmospheric CO2 was the root cause of changes to our oceans. Figure 2.) An underwater volcanic erupts in the Pacific Ocean (Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science—AP). Recent research has proven that the contentions of these scientists are far from 100% proven. To the contrary, it has become clear that geological heat flow and chemically charged heated fluid flow into our oceans is far more influential than previously thought and possibly the root cause of changes to our oceans. One example is that geological features are warming Earth’s oceans and causing El Nino’s and La Nina’s (see here, here, and here). Warmed seawater is not capable of holding as much CO2 as cold water. So, the geologically warming of seawater indirectly leads to a large amount of CO2 being released from oceans and emitted into the atmosphere. Recent research shows that seafloor geological features also directly emit large amounts of CO2 into our oceans and atmosphere(see here, here, here, and Figure 2). In summary, the volume of volcanic CO2 being emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere has not been accurately assessed. Numerous research studies and articles conducted/written by qualified scientists concur with this contention (see here, here, and here). In a geological time frame, Earth has gone through many periods of increased volcanism. These volcanic periods resulted in; major plant and animal extinction events (see here, here, and here), the end of glacial eras (see here) and the dramatic alteration of Earth’s climate (see here). All indications are that Earth is currently experiencing another period of strong volcanic activity which is acting to infuse CO2 into our atmosphere thereby challenging the validity of the global warming theory. Clearly, its time to put on hold all environmental action plans based on the cornerstone AGW principle of the global warming theory until additional geological CO2 emission research is conducted. James Edward Kamis is a retired professional Geologist with 42 years of experience, a B.S. in Geology from Northern Illinois University (1973), an M.S. in geology from Idaho State University (1977), and a longtime member of AAPG who has always been fascinated by the connection between Geology and Climate. More than 14 years of research/observation have convinced him that the Earth’s Heat Flow Engine, which drives the outer crustal plates, is an important driver of the Earth’s climate as per his Plate Climatology Theory.
  6. Actually according to the below video, the Russian climate model is the most accurate.

  8. Hello Barbara, Thank you for your kind words. What I find interesting and miraculous is this... I was at Church this afternoon, and I am the person at my church that is responsible for putting Scripture on the TV screen so the congregation doesn't have to pull out their Bibles. Today we had a guest speaker, Bishop Dr. William Johnson, from Pakistan. Normally when we have guest speakers, they don't provide scriptures ahead of time, so I have to listen to them really closely in order to make sure I catch the scripture they are quoting from so the congregation will be able to read along with the speaker. Today, Dr. Johnson only used two scriptures, one of which was 2 Peter 1:3-4. For some reason, while he was speaking, I was distracted by my phone which was sitting by the keyboard and I picked it up and came into DV and I was reading your post, when he started reading 2 Peter above. I had to scramble to recover in order to get the scripture on the TV Screens for the congregation, but I was surprised at how what he was teaching related to what you and I were discussing. Perhaps, I am the only one that sees this, you know how we can read a scripture one day and it will reveal something to you and the next day read the same scripture and it will reveal something else. I'm going to include additional verses which Dr Johnson didn't cover and tell me what you think. 2 Peter 1:2-15 (NASB) 2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 4 For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 5 Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, 6 and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, 7 and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. 8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins. 10 Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; 11 for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you. 12 Therefore, I will always be ready to remind you of these things, even though you already know them, and have been established in the truth which is present with you. 13 I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder, 14 knowing that the laying aside of my earthly dwelling is imminent, as also our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. 15 And I will also be diligent that at any time after my departure you will be able to call these things to mind.
  9. @learning all i can I apologize for falling short of your expectations. I believe those two images I posted succinctly described how I thought Mr Epstein met his demise. From your response, I can now see the Dark Humor in those images, and I sincerely apologize for offending you. I wish no one hell either, to think someone would choose an eternity in hell over an eternity with God and His Love is beyond me...
  10. Chris Marrou 14 hrs DONALD TRUMP’S BIGGEST SIN If you’re much older than 12, you know that the reaction to Donald Trump’s election and his presidency has been unprecedented, a level of screeching and squawking that has never been heard before. There’s a reason for it. Three years ago a young Muslim gunman killed 50 people in a *** nightclub in Orlando, Florida. President Barack Obama called it “an act of terror and an act of hate,” but bristled at candidate Trump’s criticism that Obama couldn’t bring himself to call it the work of radical Islam, even though the shooter had pledged allegiance to a radical Islam group before the killing began. “Calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away,” Obama sniffed. The media took Obama’s side even though the gunman had been investigated by the FBI twice before in 2013 and 2014 and yet wasn’t arrested or even told to knock it off. This week there were two shootings that killed fewer people than the one in Orlando, and the media and Democrats basically acted as if Donald Trump had mailed the shooters their ammunition. Trump even spoke out against white supremacy, as demanded by the media, and the media then claimed it was perfect evidence that Trump was a white supremacist. What did Donald Trump do to deserve the kind of treatment he’s getting? In many ways before and since his election, he has committed the mortal sin of putting the lie to everything the mainstream media and Democrats have been telling us for 80 years, and that just can’t be allowed. For 140 years until the Great Depression the United States was a place where people were supposed to find something to do, earn a living and pay their own bills. It worked quite well. But from 1930 on, that changed. Before then the federal government had spent about three percent of the country’s money (GDP, or the gross domestic product); but both Republican Herbert Hoover and Democrat Franklin Roosevelt decided government spending was the way out of the Depression. By 1939 government spending as part of the economy had more than tripled to 10%. After World War Two that percentage increased until it peaked at 24% in 2010 and now is around 20 percent, about seven times as much a fraction of the country’s GDP. This is a monstrous, huge tsunami of money, and it all rolls into Washington DC, where bureaucrats get their cut of it before spending it on government programs and politicians, to be brutally honest, steal a big chunk of it for their own purposes. It’s so much money that the top three counties in the country for household income are right around Washington itself, leaving Silicon Valley in the dust. Many of the people working in Washington believe they are doing wonderful things to make America a better place, and would be angered if you told them they’re wasting both our money and their time. They are convinced the country would collapse if they weren’t hard at work counting buttons and doing PowerPoint lectures. This viewpoint may have reached its peak in a Supreme Court case in the 1940s called Wickard v. Filburn. A poor schmuck named Roscoe Filburn had been told exactly how much wheat he could grow on his small Ohio farm by a government bureaucrat, because the federal government had decided that only they could know how much wheat was needed in our economy. Now, Filburn did what they demanded, planting 11 acres worth of wheat for sale. However, he then committed the mortal sin of planting another 12 acres of wheat to feed his farm animals and thus his family. For this reason his case ended up before the Supreme Court (Wickard was the Agriculture Secretary at the time, hence the title). The justices ruled that Filburn was in the wrong, saying that his extra 12 acres of wheat was actually part of interstate commerce even though it never left his farm. Basically, the Supreme Court was saying that government can do anything as long as it says it has a good reason to, and of course the federal government seized that idea and ran with it. We now have about three million federal employees, not counting the military. Donald Trump’s sin has been to say that very little of this matters—that two billion dollars sent to Baltimore has not made it a safer or cleaner place, that invading Iraq and Afghanistan didn’t make America a safer place, and that letting millions of people in without checking where they came from or what skills they have is another mistake. In essence, he has said that big government doesn’t make your life better and it may make it worse, and for that heresy he must be burned at the stake. Currently it’s a proverbial stake, but the liberals may soon change their minds. When Trump was elected a New York Times columnist named Paul Krugman wrote that America would soon be an economic manure pile and Trump would undo all the wonderful positive things Barack Obama had done for the nation. Since that column was written the country has produced 5 million new jobs and lowered unemployment to all-time lows for minorities, exactly the opposite of what Krugman and others predicted. And this is why they hate Donald Trump. Not because he’s a Republican—they like Republicans as long as they act like hangdog losers—they hate Trump because he’s said that THEY don’t matter, that there’s no real need for the chattering class that tells us how to think or the bureaucracy that tells us how to live. You can see this attitude in the Trump Administration’s recent attempt to ease fuel economy standards. With gasoline now as cheap (counting inflation) as it was in 1962, the Trump people thought auto makers might want the freedom to build cars without constantly worrying about tenths of a gallon they might burn in EPA testing. Within minutes liberals, bureaucrats and even the car makers were up in arms. Don’t give us freedom! We need to set rules a million words at a time! This despite the reality that easing the rules doesn’t mean anyone CAN’T build or buy a car that gets 4 billion miles to the gallon, it just would mean they didn’t have to. What horror. Donald Trump is not a racist or a white supremacist. He’s much worse, as far as his opponents are concerned. He’s the man who shows they aren’t needed.
