Area 51 - does it exist? You won't find it on any road map, the military will deny its existence, if you trespass on that area, you'll be shot to death.
Area 51 is considered a military base where aliens and their spacecraft are stored after being captured by the military. As an employee there, you need a pass to get in [secretely, of course]:
Its been said by many military personnel that aliens are already walking the earth and living normal lives. Sure they are...if you want to believe them...feel free to do so. They are called The Grays or The Greys. If they exist, the government allowed them to live here in exchange for valuable information. They may even have a valid drivers license like this one:

This is interesting to know. DO NOT accept this as fact!!
The term Gnostic means-to know, the acquiring of knowledge. Gnostics believe they receive salvation through their knowledge. The Gnostics believe that Adam and Eve are not actual people but merely representatives of whom we are inside, our soul or spirit.
The Gnostics state the Genesis account is not a historically factual account. The Gnostics embrace the mythological sense of this thought through an acquiescence of knowledge. They also believe that Adam and Eve were not the ones from whom all other life came, but merely representatives of two intrapsychic principles found inside every human being.
The Gnostic creation myth believes that the name Adam deals more with knowledge, psyche comprehension that each person has, and the term Eve relates more to our emotional, feeling, and sensing knowledge base.
The Gnostic creatic myth which had been disregarded for centuries...[now check this out]...has resurfaced in our modern era in the form of New Age thinking. In other words, the New Age religion evidently has incorporated the Gnostic creation myth into its religious beliefs. Be careful...you are being deceived!!

The Apocalypse of Peter, aka The Revelation of Peter, is an example of a simple, popular early Christian text of the 2nd century. There was a Greek version that had been deposited in the grave of a Christian monk of the 8th or 9th century, but now is in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Certain quotes were mentioned in the Apocalypse of Esdras, the Vision of Paul, & the Pasion of Saint Perpetua.
Peter's Apocalypse deals with the Risen Christ to his faithful, offering a vision first of heaven, and then of hell, granted to Peter. In this Apocalypse it mentions the punishments for the sinful actions of the Jewish notion of 'lex talionic' and "eye for an eye," that the punishment may fit the crime. Some gasly punishments in hell include, among others, blasphemers are hung by the tongue; murders are set in a pit of creeping things that torment them; those who lend money & demand "usury upon usury" stand up to their knees in a lake of foul matter & blood; women who have abortions are set in a lake formed from the blood and gore from all the other punishments, up to their necks. They're also tormented by the spirits of their unborn children, who shoot a "flash of fire" into their eyes.

What if Maricon's canon which consisted only of Luke's Gospel & Paul's Letters, entirely omitting the OT, had become Christianity's canon? What if the Ebionites, who believed Jesus was completely human & not devine, had ruled the day as the Orthodox Christian party?
What if various early Christian writings, such as the Gospel of Thomas or the Secret Gospel of Mark had been allowed into the canonical NT? Back when the Christian movement began, there were scholarly tales of forgies, burned books, doctrinal feuds, & other episodes in the making of the NT & theearly churches?
The Secret Gospel of Mark is interesting to note since I've never heard of it, tells of a letter of Clement of Alexandria [2nd century] which quotes the supposed secret gospel. It tells of Jesus raising a man from the dead, & then insinuates a homosexual encounter between the two. How sick can a person get!!! The letter was never found in the Israeli monastery where Morton Smith supposedly discovered it. Most likely he forged the letter himself.
Back to the Marcionities, the foundere-Marcion viewed the God of the OT as fundamentally flawed, & viewed Jesus as an emissary from the true God who would liberate humanity. As for the Docetists, they thought that Jesus' suffering was illusory since the real Jesus did not have a real body.

In the first centuries after Christ, there was no "official" NT. Early Christians read fervently followed many more scriptures than we have today. SUCH AS: The Acts of John; The 2nd Gospel of Mark; The Acts of Paul & Thecla; The Coptic Godpel of Thomas; Infancy Gospels; The Epistle of Banabas; The Apocalypse of Petere; and, The Gnostic Gospel of Truth.
Relying on these writings, some Christians believed that there were 2, 12, times or as many as 30 gods, that a malicious deity created the world, that Christ's resurrection had nothing to do with salvation, that Christ never died at all!
What did these other scriptures say? If such beliefs were once common, why do they no longer exist?

Reasons why Jews reject Jesus as the Messiah:
1. The true Messiah is to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem-but Jesus lived while the temple was still standing. [Jer. 33:18].
2. The Messiah will establish Jewish religious law of the land. [Jer. 33:15].
3. The Messiah will save Israel :In the case of Jesus, the very opposite took place. Not long after His death, the Holy Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed. Jerusalem was laid to waste, & the Jews went into exile to begin a 1,000 year long night of persecution-largely at the hands of the followers of this self-styled Messiah!"
4. He will establish a government in Israel that will be the center of all world government, both for Jews and Gentiles. [Isa. 2:2-4; 11:10; 42:1].
5. The Messiah will return all exiles to their homeland. [Isa. 11:11-12; Jer. 23:8; 30:3; Hosea 3:4-5].
THE CHRISTIAN COUNTER ARGUMENT:
Jesus will do the above at the Second Coming.
JEWISH RESPONSE TO COUNTER-ARGUMENTS:
The claim that Jesus will fulfill the Messianic propesies when he returns does not give him any credibility for his "first" coming. The Bible never speaks about the Messiah returning after an initial appearance. The "second coming" theory is a desperate attempt to explain away Jesus' failure. The Biblical passages which Christians are forced to regard as second coming don't speak of someone returning, they have a "first" coming perspective. NOTE: I don't know which Bible they are referring to unless its the Jewish Bible or whatever.

Did Senator John McCain ever watch the 2005-06 ABC Tv drama, "Commander in Chief?" It may have where he got the idea to have a female running mate as VP. This series stars Geena Davis. This well-produced political drama series earned Genna Davis an Emmy nomination for her pioneering role.
As the story line goes: With the U.S. President mortally ill, V.P. Mackenzie Allen [Davis] is poised to become the first female president in the nation's history. Conniving Speaker of the House Nathan Templeton [Donald Sutherland], however, has other plans. Once in office, President Allen's challenges only deepen, as does Templeton's treachery.
Season 1 has 18 episodes. Season 2 hasn't been released to Netflix yet.
Suppose this series was where McCain got the idea to have a female V.P., after all, he was in poor health to an extent while he was running for President, wasn't he? He figured if he died, Palin would take over to become our first female president. If Geena Davis could do it, so could Palin. We will never know will we...unless she runs for President in 2012. I think she has a good chance. I'd vote for her as I did the last time.

In 1998 it was suddenly proposed by many to realize a dream many have long nurtured...to construct a new ship in the image and/or memory of the legendary RMS Titanic. The cost of a new Titanic? Approximately $900 million. Who is responsible for this gigantic project? Nic Wilson and Bruce moffat of Australia. They had hoped to begin building it by 2000 so it will be ready to sail by 2012 [centennial]. The new Titanic would be a sister ship to RMS Olympic, RMS Titanic, and HMHS Britannic.
Currently there is no sound concrete desire from any corporation to build a new Titanic. a
A 2010 movie called, "Titanic 2" came out in time for the 100th anniversary. It was filmed hastly, it could have been done much better like the original. This Titanic follows the path of its namesake. But when a tsunami hurls an iceberg into the new ship's path, the passengers and crew must fight to avoid a similar fate. The interior and the exterior [non-moving] of this new Titanic is actually that of the Queen Mary docked in Long Beach, CA. [see last photo at bottom and at the very top of this journal].

The Cup of Life is a magical chalice [pictured above] blessed by many years of socery whereby water is drunk from the cup thereby allowing the drinker to survive death. However, another life must be given in return in order that the balance of the world be restored. The Cup of Life has another use, that can give any person the gify of immortality, by placing a drop of a person's blood into the cup. Like with the Rowan staffwhen close to the cup those with magic can feel its power.
The Cup of Life's current location is unknown. Is this cup for real or likely an illusion to the legends of the Holy Grail commonly affiated with King Arthur and his Knights? The Catholic Church absorbed this ideaand declared they had such a cup-the Crystal Cup of St. Denos. The Catholic Church continues to use the blessed chalice during the ritual of communion! Its contents of wine are yet believed transformed into sacred blood [the blood of Jesus Christ] later on.
