UFO Hoax Jan 3, 2018, New Zealand
Newsweek posted an article yesterday saying there were three lights in a Triangle shape over New Zealand. A short time later the article was retracted because they claimed they could not verify the video (
The ET & UFO Phenomenon
If you go back and try to get an overview of the ET and UFO phenomenon, it quickly becomes a challenge to decide if you are making sense of anything. The
Finish Your Jedi Training
Let me preface this post by saying that until five days before this was written, I had never seen a Star Wars movie in my 28 years on this Earth (to be accurate, I saw The Phantom Menace when it came out, but I was assured by many fans that this does not count).
The Time Traveler #1
ENTRY #1.002 I signed it and didn't even think over the fact that I had a daughter, nevertheless, I would've embarked on this absurd journey than to spent my time being tortured in Cuba.
Who Is Admiral Holdo?
When I first saw the movie The Last Jedi, my curiosity was immediately piqued by vice-admiral Amilyn Holdo. For those who don't know, she was the purple haired lady that takes command after Leia is indisposed and sacrifices herself in order to save the rest of the Resistance. We clearly had never seen this new character in the sequels or prequels and while she does add to the roster of strong female leads we are seeing more often in Star Wars, I couldn't help but wonder where she came from and who she was. And so comes this article. We will now look at the background of Amilyn Holdo and what she represents.
Extra Terrestrial Misdirection
When trying to understand Extra Terrestrial misdirection there is no greater analogy than that of a tennis court. Imagine Earth is the actual court itself, and the possibility of Humanoid Extra Terrestrials Living Among Us (
Confessions of an Atheist
Many people have misconceptions about Atheism. It's not that we are some soul-sucking, children-hating, stubborn-minded individuals who wish hatred and suffering on society. In fact, Atheism isn't really much different from any other faith, it's just that we have a lack of said faith, and replace it with something else. For example, personally, I explain most of my answers using science. Science is how the world came to be. Physics and biology and chemistry... They all intertwine to form something incredible... This is what creates the world and everything around it.
Point of Origin
Chief advisor Armenn stood anxiously outside the great throne room, waiting for its mammoth door to open. Delivering a report to the queen was nerve-wracking enough at the best of times, without having the added pressure that the report he was about to give her could, in all probability, start an interplanetary war. He could, however, take small comfort from the fact that it wasn’t the first time one of his briefings had led to bloodshed.
Disappointed! (When a Franchise Becomes Too Popular)
I can’t help but feel excited any time a new Star Wars film arrives. Even if it turns out to be mediocre to say the least, any time the opening crawl appears with that iconic music from John Williams, it’s exciting. Perhaps it’s a symptom of the division in our society, but the most recent film garnered a shocking and frankly rather extreme reaction. I’m sure you read the reactions and reviews by now, and you either love it intensely, or you had such a visceral reaction the very thought of it almost gives you a coronary. However, this article isn’t about how good or how bad the last Star Wars film was.
Hellbound Saga Book 1: Albador
Chapter 3 The forest flew past as Kyra and I ran as fast as we could back to the farm, as we got closer I began to smell the smoke and could hear the panicked screams of the horses, but I had yet to hear my mother scream again. Panicked as I was, every numerous possibility of what could of happened crossed my mind but not a single one seemed possible. It didn't take very long before we were close enough to see signs of the fire through the trees and the smoke started to surround us, then I could hear my mother pleading with somebody.
Outrun Stories #43
The world’s gotta pay, the world’s gotta pay, the world’s gotta pay, just going around and around and around in my head. Look what it’s taken, everything from me, everything and everyone that I ever had or loved and left me this shell, with nothing more than a loaded gun and a grimace across my face.
Brutalist Stories #43
Fifteen years since its birth and announcement to the world, and fifteen years since it vanished with no trace, and today it decides to reappear. Why today? Why make this moment so special, why this particular time? I can’t help but wonder if it holds some sort of special significance. If this thing, this AI, the Citizizen as it calls itself, is really so special, so grand, surely it would have picked some time in the grand cosmological calendar that made some sense?
