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

Monday, 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

Friday, 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!

Do Aliens Walk Among us? Well do they?

Wednesday, 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?

Saturday, 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.

A.D. 1440 Vinland Map Vindicated!

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Vinland Map Version_1_333kb In school, we were taught Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492.  However many evidences have been presented  attempting  to dethrone the traveling Italians honor.

The “anomalous” american discoveries vying to contradict and prove of an earlier eastern arrival such as ancient stone works, mysterious coins with dates before his arrival, Mid-West Egyptian like hieroglyphics etched in stone did not possess the strength of argument to overturn such a deeply held prized distinction…until mid 2009.

The Vinland map has been known since 1957. Written on parchment and ink, this map shows the outlines of Europe and parts of Africa. However as you scan to the west your eye easily recognizes Iceland and a bit more to the left and there is Greenland. But keep traveling across the ocean what do we see…New Foundland?  What is a section of North America doing on a map carbon dated at 1440?  That’s a half a century before the Queen gave Chris the green light for his own gig.

The latest analysis completed by the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts announced July 17, 2009 declared the map is real, not a hoax. That may make some uncomfortable as one significant piece of history would need to be rewritten. This map adds another piece of evidence that the Vikings were perhaps the first to Discover America as early as 1000 A.D.

What this all means is not all the pieces of the anthropological puzzle have been discovered nor have they been assembled without the possibility of having to go back and rewrite history. Time will tell it’s tale, if we let it.
