IN RADIO CONTACT WITH MARS

Wireless Transmissions and Martian Deception

On Halloween Eve, October 30, 1938, actor and writer, Orson Welles established the most famous connection ever between Mars and wireless technology.  But it was far from the most provocative.  The broadcast of H.G. Wells, War of the Worlds (1898), scared the pants off at least one million Americans, especially in the northeast United States.  Orson Welles changed H.G.

Just the Facts Mam

What would it take to prove to science and to our culture that intelligent life exists on another world?  Mind you:  the issue isn’t whether the world in question circles a faraway star or is a mere moon orbiting a nearby planet.  The matter is whether any remote heavenly body hosts life of the intelligent kind.

OUT OF THIS WORLD REMOTE VIEWING

More than Just an Intelligence Gathering Tool

In the last article on the subject of Mars, I explored the possibility that certain speculative assertions (some would insist I call them facts) about the Red Planet could be an important part of “the lie” (“pseudos” in the Greek – 2 Thessalonians 2:13, from which our antecedent pseudo derives; see also, “lying wonders” or pseudos teras – 2 Thessalonians 2:9).  This cosmological falsehood will be a compelling myth that the Man of Sin (i.e., Antichrist) will propagate amongst the inhabitants of our little but cosmologically decisive planet.
