    [Catholic Caucus] Vatican’s Amazon Synod appears bent on agenda that borders on nature-worship…where’s the Gospel? June 13, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — As we approach the 2019 Pan-Amazonian Synod, scheduled to be held in October, the organizers are becoming more and more open about their goals. In the name of learning from, and protecting, the tribal peoples of Amazonia, the synod appears bent on promoting a radical form of environmentalism that borders on nature-worship, not to mention romanticizing the hunter-gatherers themselves as Noble Savages. The indigenous peoples living in the Amazon Basin offer, according to the Preparatory Document, “a model of alternative,...
  • NASA accurately calculates Milky Way's weight using Gaia, Hubble telescopes

    Scientists have finally been able to accurately calculate the weight of the Milky Way, overcoming the difficult hurdle of measuring dark matter, the European Space Agency (ESA) announced Thursday. After years of struggling to estimate the size of our galaxy, astronomers with NASA and the ESA used data from the Hubble Space Telescope and the ESA’s Gaia mission to determine the Milky Way weighs about 1.5 trillion solar masses within a radius of 129,000 light years from the center. Because dark matter makes up about 90 percent of the galaxy, estimates of the Milky Way’s weight have differed widely in...
  • Hyperion is an ancient cosmic beast formed 2.3B years after Big Bang

    10/18/2018 5:59:30 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 41 replies
    Astronomers have discovered a massive proto-supercluster of galaxies -- bigger than even one million billion Suns. Scientists have called the ancient colossal structure Hyperion, the European Southern Observatory announced Wednesday. It is reported to have appeared just 2.3 billion years after the Big Bang, which took place about 13.7 billion years ago. The cluster's namesake is one of 12 titans born to the gods Gaia and Uranus in Greek mythology.

    According to Lovelock and Margulis's Gaia hypothesis, living things are part of a planetary-scale self-regulating system that has maintained habitable conditions for the past 3.5 billion years (1, 2). Gaia has operated without foresight or planning on the part of organisms, but the evolution of humans and their technology are changing that. Earth has now entered a new epoch called the Anthropocene (3), and humans are beginning to become aware of the global consequences of their actions. As a result, deliberate self-regulation—from personal action to global geoengineering schemes—is either happening or imminently possible. Making such conscious choices to operate within...
  • ‘First Reformed’ Film Prays for Redemption, Eco-Terrorism

    The pastor in First Reformed may work in a church, but his true god isn’t the Lord above. It’s Al Gore. Writer/director Paul Schrader’s film, available now on Blu-ray and other home video outlets, shares the story of a broken man’s quest for redemption. What emerges is the usual array of global warming talking points, the kind Hollywood can’t help inserting into its product ad nauseam. It’s a shame, since First Reformed offers Ethan Hawke’s most powerful performance to date. Reverend Ernst Toller (Hawke) oversees First Reformed, an antiquated church with a broken organ and empty pews. He’s content all...
  • Astronomers access huge amounts of data on the stars in our galaxy from Gaia space telescope

    Aa Astronomers are celebrating a massive data release that offers them the richest ever map of the Milky Way. The information comes from ESA's GAIA space telescope, which has surveyed almost two billion stars in our galaxy. They now have very precise data on billions of stars around our galaxy that will make for decades of analysis. It gives them the possibility to research the history of our galaxy and postulate what might happen in the future, too.Astronomer François Mignard was one of the founding fathers of the GAIA mission. So why does this data release make such a difference...

    Not much is known about the new film "Mother!" Director Darren Aronofsky has remained silent about many of the details, but he has released a disturbing poem which twists the Lord's Prayer. "Our mother who art underfoot, hallowed be thy names, thy seasons come, thy will be done, within us as around us, thank you for our daily bread, our water, our air, and our lives and so much beauty; lead us not into selfish craving and the destructions that are the hungers of the glutted, but deliver us from wonton consumption of thy vast but finite bounty, for thine...

    We've all heard it endlessly: the Arctic ice is melting. It will soon be open water, and the surrounding islands bare rock. The Northwest Passage, which lured hundreds to their doom during the Age of Exploration, will at last be a reality. The polar bears will go hungry. Eskimo shamans will no longer be able to contact the Ice Goddess. Manhattan and Long Island will soon be fifty miles offshore... And so on, certainly one of the most dominant and persistent memes of the global warming movement, despite its not containing so much as an ounce of truth. The latest...

    BBC ^ | 9/14/16 | Jonathan Amos
    The most precise map of the night sky ever assembled is taking shape. Astronomers working on the Gaia space telescope have released a first tranche of data recording the position and brightness of over a billion stars. And for some two million of these objects, their distance and sideways motion across the heavens has also been accurately plotted. Gaia's mapping effort is already unprecedented in scale, but it still has several years to run. Remarkably, scientists say the store of information even now is too big for them to sift, and they are appealing for the public's help in making...

    “Christians are ‘called to resist’ Trump.” So read the headline accompanying a polemic authored by Rev. Dr. David Gushee, Director of the Center for Theology and Public Life at Mercer University in Georgia. It was published this past week by Religion News Service, which provides left-of-center religious news and commentary to more than 100 media outlets, including the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune and Huffington Post. The “call” to which Gushee referred is a statement (which he helped draft) that was released last month by “a multiracial group of Christian ministers and scholars.” The group condemns Donald Trump, they say, because...

    In 1965 executives at Shell wanted to know what the world would look like in the year 2000. They consulted a range of experts, who speculated about fusion-powered hovercrafts and "all sorts of fanciful technological stuff". When the oil company asked the scientist James Lovelock, he predicted that the main problem in 2000 would be the environment. "It will be worsening then to such an extent that it will seriously affect their business," he said. "And of course," Lovelock says, with a smile 43 years later, "that's almost exactly what's happened." Lovelock has been dispensing predictions from his one-man laboratory...

    "With cries that pierce me to the heart, / my enemies revile me, / saying to me all the day long: / ‘Where is your God?’” — Psalm 42. "In paganism, the Divine is that to which sacrifices must be offered. This is almost a definition. In this recent movement, Man is something that should be sacrificed on behalf of the Earth. The divinization of the Earth is an extremely consequential move, since it is supposed to be higher than Man.” — Rêmi Brague, “Are There as Many Gods as Religions?” (Modern Age, Summer 2015) I.

    Pope Francis should be brought in on the fact that the environmental movement genuflects not to God but to Gaia Pontificating from his window in a Vatican palazzo on Sunday, Pope Francis bypassed tens of thousands of pilgrims and tourists, to lavish with gushing praise a few hundred activists who had marched to St. Peter’s Square under the banner ‘One Earth, one family”. Sunday marked the Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul. “I encourage the collaboration between persons and associations of different religions on behalf of an integral ecology,” Francis said, offering good wishes to young people discussing what...

    While the witch-hunt against Confederate flags, statues, paintings and even stained glass windows continues to distract the masses, it’s really the churches Big Government most covet Now that Gay Day June 26th has come to pass, and Barack Obama had the White House flooded in the colours of the gay rainbow, Sundays will never be the same. Sunday, that is, as the day Christians come to church to worship the Creator. The progressives want Sunday, and as sure as Lucifer is now calling the shots, they will be coming for it. Sunday, the day of rest, will ultimately become the...

    The number one most important lesson to be learned from the document’s 40,000+ words is the indisputable reality that the Catholic Church in our day; more precisely, the men who are leading her and duly running her into the ground, the Bishop of Rome chief among them, has little concern for the mission that was given to the Church by Christ the King.

    Courtesy of Vox Cantoris, we are alerted to the astonishing end of the encyclical, Laudato Si. I wonder if any paragraph worse than this could have been written by any Pope. The text is below. This is not a draft. It is the official version from the Vatican site. 246. At the conclusion of this lengthy reflection which has been both joyful and troubling, I propose that we offer two prayers. The first we can share with all who believe in a God who is the all-powerful Creator, while in the other we Christians ask for inspiration to take up...

    Why is it that both the Vatican and the Obama White House feel they can be so open and candid about their close collaboration? Is the Administration part of the Catholic Church or is the Church a mouthpiece for the Administration... or is Communism just a modern word for the Gospel, like Pope Francis says? Why do we keep hearing the same ugly messages wherever we look? In a bid to bolster the Obama administration's "moral" case for combating climate change, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency will meet senior Vatican officials Friday to enlist papal support for its...

    ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE — Pope Francis said Thursday he is convinced that global warming is "mostly" man-made and that he hopes his upcoming encyclical on the environment will encourage negotiators at a climate change meeting in Paris to make "courageous" decisions to protect God's creation. Francis has spoken out frequently about the "culture of waste" that has imperiled the environment and he elaborated en route to the Philippines. While there, Francis will meet with survivors of the 2013 Typhoon Haiyan, which the government has said was an example of the extreme weather conditions that global warming has wrought. "I...
