The Last Jedi was the Last Straw For Many Star Wars Fans

December 18th, 2017

*UNWARNING* (This article contains NO spoilers)

Since the release of the new Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, it has been met with intense fan dissatisfaction to the point, and I quote, “Terrible movie…..I’m done with Star wars….I’ve read over a 100 star wars books…I’m out”  Fans are feeling empty, the movie franchise has not made good on what people are looking for.

Back in 1982, while in the US Navy, each night I’d listen to the Empire Strikes Back on audio cassette, a dramatized recording which fed an intense desire to join Han and the crew to fly aboard the Millennium Falcon saving the universe.

Frustrated! No matter how much I wanted to step though the movie screen or melt into the pages of a Han Solo novel, it was impossible because it’s a fictional story, there is no Han Solo, light sabers are press camera light bulb handles and Ewoks are fuzzy costumed actors conceived in Lucas’s commericalized mind.

Two years later, while relaxing  on board my ship, the USS Alamo, I was taking a break and uncharacteristically read the Book of Revelation, a prophetic book found in the Bible. As I read these 1,900 year old verses, something so incredible, so unexpected, totally changed the course of my life…I discovered The Real Star Wars Story;

Enter the graphic novel by Jim Pinkoski titled The Star Lords Controversy. Pinkoski captures the essence of this story from the scriptures, with an easy to read compelling captions with colorful illustrations retelling the original good vs. evil story. Guaranteed to fill and satisfy your wants of true adventure. Because it’s a true story, it will not, it cannot disappoint.

You are Invited to the Unveiling of The Tree of Life – December 30th 2017

December 8th, 2017

To unveil a painting is an uncommon thing. When you consider the process of creating a painting, from concept to finished art, it can take months and sometimes years to get the final result the artist wants.

          (Elfred Lee’s The Invitation)

It’s been over 13 years since the museum unveiled Elfred Lee’s Noah’s Ark painting titled: “The Invitation to a crowd of well over one hundred in Syracuse, NY.  Many of whom took a print home to place on their walls.

On Saturday December 30th 2017 at 11am, another Elfred Lee original fine art piece will make it’s debut and you are invited. The unveiling will be conducted at the conclusion of a talk titled the same as the painting The Tree of Life” 

The painting is so colorful and the design  inspiring so that the few who have had a sneak peak glimpse were overwhelmed with positive emotion.

The location of the event will be at the Fulton SDA Church 45 West 4th St. South in Fulton, NY 13069. Here’s the DIRECTIONS    See you there!

So Do You Want to Live Forever? – The Tree of Life is HERE.

November 21st, 2017

 

Who wouldn’t want to live forever… and according to the book of Genesis, The Tree of Life was originally the medium God was to use, to perpetuate human existence throughout eternity. However there was one problem. A nearby counterfeit tree had tempting fruit, and it’s affect, resulted in death.

Fast forward 6,000 years and you have the Earth ready to “close up shop”, awaiting for it’s Devine “make-over.”
When this happens, this Tree of Life, the same tree, protected and held in storage from Genesis, will be replanted on Earth and the inhabitants will once again eat its life giving fruit…and so begins again, humanities journey of eternal life.

Archeological illustrator, Elfred Lee, assembled the necessary research to construct the only accurate depiction of the Tree mentioned in the book of Genesis and then making a second appearance in the book of Revelation.

This image on canvas comes in 4 edition sizes. Go to our MUSEUM STORE to explore the Tree which awaits our return…to give us Life.

New Bible Museum Opens in D.C.

November 18th, 2017

Washington, D.C. Friday November 16th 2017 the Museum of the Bible opened to the public. This $500 million dollar, 430,000 sqft. facility was  built to showcase…well the Bible. Visitors are treated to more than old dusty parchments in a glass case, theres much more to this museum.
What I found most interesting,  is that the museum gives examples of the Bible’s historical influence on wars, nations and people. Such as The Revolutionary War, Scientist Galileo, Reformer Martin Luther and the formation of the United States of America.

To suggest that one book, could have that kind of influence on that wide array of events and people…perhaps the Bible is worth a read and a visit to the Museum of the Bible.

Chupacabra Mystery(( SOLVED)) 2017 Update

June 16th, 2010

Our involvement with the so-called Chupacabra went back to 2006 at a corn roast in southern N.Y Where I first heard about a weird creature captured in the local area and the story then told by host’s son. This lead to interviewing the kids who captured, purchasing a set of the juvenile bones, more investigation in other sightings and encounters throughout the US.  Then in 2009 owning the first whole body taxidermy specimen called the Blanco Texas Chupacabra.

The Chupacabra is a queer-looking hairless dog-like critter was roaming the backyards of America but as time went on and data collected, this was to become less of a mystery, at least at the Lost World Museum.

One of the main characteristics of a “Chupacabra” is its hairless condition, wrinkled grey skin.
 I recently came across a few pieces of the puzzle about the hair-loss and I’ll try to shed some light on what the cause might be. As of this writing, scientists seem to attribute the bald appearance to a condition known as mange.

The few scientists who weighed in on the issue, believe the creatures look and skin condition is strictly due to mange.  Their “It’s mange” conclusion has limited their ability to solve this mystery and here’s why.

Every non-science person I’ve personally interviewed, 8 in all, told me they know the animals indigenous to their area and they know what mange looks like and ALL have emphatically stated to me “This is not mange!” I believe them.  So you have professionals on one said saying “Mange” and locals who say “No mange”  What does all mean?

After 4 years of puzzlement, in the summer of 2010,  we received more pieces to the cryptozoological puzzle. The focus was on the particular style of hair-loss that the local folks anecdotal opinions now were making more sense (Not Mange).

Side Note: Something you may not know is that a half a dozen scientist’s over the last 4 years have explained away any mystery to this mammal by attributing this unique hair-loss as, “Oh, it’s mange.” These statements are in response from their personal observation of photos or a film we provided. That’s it.  There were no animals to examine. No real evidence. No laboratory testing, just images. Recently a few carcasses did make it into the labs and have been tested. (3 deceased “Chupas”). Testing was conducted and  tests came back…are you ready?  Of the 3 Chupas “Mange” was the condition of 2X’s and “Not Mange” – 1X.  Is this conclusive enough? How do we reconcile the testimonies of the locals and their “Street Smart” knowledge that it isn’t mange?

The problem was scientists had a mild interest and the least amount of evidence to work from. The;r opinion was without real hard evidence to examine. The locals swear it’s not mange and I sided with the locals and here’s why.

Since Jan. 2010 there has been other different species of animals with a similar skin and hairless condition. Including a Chula-Fox and Chupa-Coon (bald raccoon).  Then we discovered a Chupa-Bear at a German Zoo.  As the video here shows, a bald (Chupa) bear. All these none dog-like mammals exhibited the same condition as our gray hairless chicken eating canines dis. As you watch the video you can see the grey color and folded skin on the back of the neck similar to our Blanco Texas Chupacabra.

The german zoo does not know what type of disease is causing this disorder. They are eager to find out. If it was mange there is a simple easy test to determine it.

So at this point, my thought was that the “Chupacabras” in the U.S. are a coyote or some type of canine mammal that has a, yet to be determined, known or unknown disease. But it is not mange. This sickness, whatever it is, colors the skin grey and the hair-loss is mostly complete with some hair remaining on the face and tail. It affects our dogs/foxes/coyote which we are now affectionately calling Chupacabra.

Leading  researchers at U.C. Davis conducted an extensive genetic testing of 3-4 “Chupa” specimens including the Blanco Texas Chupa and we will be sharing their conclusions as they ready to publish their results in some type of esoteric scientific technical journal in about a year.

UPDATE: 11/17/2017 – Mystery solved…  U.C. Davis shared with us their genetic test results. And concluded the Blanco Texas Chupa was a mix of Mexican wolf and coyote.

Museum’s Conclusion: Based on U.C. Davis’s analysis, and the mentioned other animal types of “Chupas”, the “Chupacabra” is not a mysterious yet to be discovered new species of mammal as some have suggested. It’s a diseased mammal.

Mange or not mange: Regarding its blue/gray bald skin… apparently it’s NOT mange… It’s mange-like. Locals who know mange and seen these critters in the wild, denied over and over that it was not mange and even the scientists are 50/50 on whether it’s really mange. So it’s Mange-like, but not the typical mange the local people see in diseased animals in the wilderness normally. They know and the know what they know.

To conclude, Chupacabra’s are not the devil, it’s a predatory mammal…with a mange-like disease.  We at the museum are satisfied,  based on the best evidence thus far, the eye-witness reports, YouTube videos and other animal species mentioned above affected by this same skin condition. Along with the  scientific analysis, this mystery is solved. There is no such thing as a Chupacabra. We are going to move on as sensational as this has and will continue to be.

Do Aliens Walk Among us? Well do they?

April 14th, 2010

23,000 U.S. adults surveyed asking “Do believe aliens walk among us?” 20% said “Yes” aliens do walk among us dressed as humans. The Chinese poll responded double with 40% polled saying “I believe!”

Wow, if that is true, how do you tell who is my real brother and who is from another planet?  Do they hide their looks with a homo-sapien rubber mask or perhaps technology to morphs their looks? If you ask an alien if they are an alien, are they compelled to tell you the truth? I’m confused, but apparently these people are not.

One popular 40 year old theory stated emphaticaly this Earth was visited by aliens tens of thousands of years ago and the aliens genetically altered and advanced the caveman’s human development. Check out the 1970’s classic documentary, Chariots of the gods.

In the book Secrets of the Lost Races, author Rene Noorbergen does a tremendous job answering this alien question by postulating that 4,000 years ago, in the wake of a world wide flood, an intelligent giant human race were left to rebuild the devastation and responsible for all the impossibly built ancient technological mega-structures and anomalous inventions. Not Aliens.

Alien flying saucer sightings, reported in the news and on video are compelling. The physically impossible flight trajectories documented on video and sworn testimony by credible people are compelling. But what are they? If there is no such things as aliens, then this is either man-made or it’s a super-natural. If super-natural, this it’s an elaborate hoax Satan and his angels are orchastrating. I believe it’s a set-up for something in the near future. Word is, be careful how you process sensory information. Because if we live through the days preceding the 2nd coming of Christ, seeing will not be believing.

Is the Famed Shroud of Turin the Burial Cloth of Jesus?

April 3rd, 2010

Apparently those who believe in its authenticity are going to great lengths to map out digitally and recreate this human image, graphically embedded in cloth, into a 3D equivalent which is going on display in Turin, Italy April 10th-May 23rd 2010.

Yes that’s right in order to see every nuance this supposed image of Christ the curator’s will be passing out 3D glasses to attendees and giving an opportunity to study this one-of-a-kind artifact themselves in the third dimension.

Is the Shroud of Turin a hoax? Can the image really be the energy of a Devine being, being released at death, like an x-ray, captured in fabric? Is it really the burial cloth of Christ?

Here’s the problem, the New Testament records that the grave cloths were in 2 pieces: 1.) Head cloth 2.) Body cloth, wrapped around the deceased person’s body. The Shroud of Turin however is one long piece that begins at the feet, travels up and around the head and back down the back side to the feet again as one complete covering.

Also carbon dating suggests an age of around 1260-1390A.D.  Christ died around 34 A.D.

So as much as one may want to believe it’s evidence of God, we believe it’s a hoax.  Whether it was created to fool people or to honor God cannot be determined, the artist never recorded his or her intensions for us to consider.
