This week we look at the trickster in the bible, myth, and culture. Link
“We aren’t trying to make a mockery of this; we are trying to be really creative and come up with new out-of-the-box solutions.” — Baland Jalal, a neuroscientist at the University of Cambridge.
How do the biblical trickster, fake feces, and what we golden nuggets can discern from Holy Scripture of biblical characters? How does this connect with modern news headlines?
Weather and Space Weather
In the Celestial Report this week I talk about the Trickster in the bible, pagan myth, and culture. The trickster is a gender-bender and so take notice where this gun research will be published.
With the agreement reached by Congress that would allow the CDC and NIH to fund gun-violence research for the first time in more than 20 years, the Violence and Gender journal, published by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., is poised to showcase the Health Affairs research so that policy will be guided by solid scientific evidence.

Nationwide Shortage of Money Where Cash Substitutes Started to Circulate
In 1907 depositors across the US began runs on their banks. Sensing imminent collapse, states declared emergency bank holidays. Those that remained open limited withdrawals. Read more at ADAPT 2030
The reality of this is that once a Public Health Emergency is declared the rule of law basically transfers to the UN. This has huge Constitutional issues as the Public Health Emergency suspends the Constitution. As Medical Martial Law was declared in 2016, laying in wait, if a disaster hits the US it could possibly lead to a generalized martial law.
HHS Secretary Azar Declares Public Health Emergency for Puerto Rico Following Earthquakes (HHS)
A series of earthquakes and aftershocks in Puerto Rico this week prompted Health and Human Services Secretary Alex. M. Azar II to declare a public health emergency for the U.S. territory. In declaring the public health emergency and authorizing flexibilities for CMS beneficiaries, Secretary Azar acted within his authority under the Public Health Service Act and Social Security Act. These actions and flexibilities are retroactive to Dec. 28, 2019.

France: Iran Could Have Nuclear Weapon within One to Two Years
French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has warned that Iran could have nuclear weapons in one or two years if Tehran continues to violate a landmark nuclear accord with world powers. Before the nuclear deal between Iran and the leading world powers was signed in October 2015, Iran’s dash-to-the-bomb break-out time was estimated to be between two and five months. The various clauses of the nuclear deal had increased Iran’s break-out time to 12-18 months and the deal would have kept Iran’s nuclear program in that state until 2030. Since the U.S, withdrew from a deal on 8 May 2018, Iran has systematically, if carefully and slowly, breached more and more of the restrictions imposed on its nuclear program in 2015. Read more

In May 2018, Mars witnessed one of its worst storms. Amid the chaos, plumes of dust erupted up from the planet’s surface, towering as high as 35 miles. The storm was so severe that it claimed the life of NASA’s Opportunity rover, smothered by hazy darkness that blocked out its solar battery panel. The last signal received from Opportunity was on June 10, 2018. NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter confirmed the death when it spotted its limp robotic body later that year. Read more
Are you prepared for America and Europe going off-line…?
If the historical data is anything to go by, magnetic reversals/excursions often lead to large-level extinction events. Mounting evidence also suggests that our sun micro-novas every 12,000 years, or thereabouts, and that these two events are linked. Earth’s temperature has been on a downward trend since the sharp-warming that followed the end of the Younger Dryas, indicating that this coming Grand Solar Minimum could steer us back into a major glaciation period and another extinction event.
240 000 urged to flee Victoria as scorching temperatures and erratic winds worsen bushfires, Australia
Australian authorities urged 240 000 people to evacuate Victoria on Friday, January 10, 2020, as blazing temperatures and erratic winds fan massive bushfires. As of January 8, the fires have raged through 10.7 million ha (26 million acres) of land, destroyed over Read more
Extreme Conditions Created Perfect Storm for Catastrophic Aussie Fires
An Australian fire expert says her analyses of bushlands around Sydney in the final months of 2019 indicated that the landscape was primed for these catastrophic fires but it was series of other conditions, all happening concurrently, that ultimately led to the disaster. The recent drought conditions were key to creating the "perfect storm" that allowed all other pre-conditions to occur concurrently. Read more

Mixco Viejo (Jilotepeque Viejo)
A ruined Maya city that suffered a years-long case of mistaken identity.
Unlike the more famous Maya ruins scattered throughout Central America, Mixco Viejo (Jilotepeque Viejo) attracts only the odd trickle of tourists. The remarkably well-preserved city is so obscure, even archaeologists mislabeled it.
For many years, archaeologists and historians believed this ruined city was the capital of the Poqomam Maya, thanks to the errors of early colonial explorers. It wasn’t until linguist Robert M. Carmack noticed Jilotepeque Viejo lay well outside the linguistic area normally associated with the Poqomam kingdom that people realized the site was actually Jilotepeque Viejo, capital of the Chajoma Kaqchikel kingdom. However, its original name stuck. Now, the site is commonly referred to as Mixco Viejo (Jilotepeque Viejo) to set it apart from the true Poqomam capital. Read more
Truth is Strange than Fiction
Portent for 2020? Emergency agencies are training and gearing up for mass casualties.
Somewhere in the forests of West Sumatra, Indonesia, on the last night of 2019, a noxious flower was unfurling its petals and letting a really big one rip. The flower in question was a Rafflesia tuan-mudae, often called the corpse lily for the fleshy fumes it emits when blooming. Rafflesia sightings are often noteworthy, drawing crowds as large as 200 to the remote stretches of the jungle where they bloom. This particular Rafflesia was also historic: Its bloom, which reached a diameter of 43.7 inches, is the largest ever recorded for the species, according to West Sumatra’s Natural Resources and Conservation Center.
Aside from their unholy stench, flowers in the genus Rafflesia, which lack leaves and roots, aren’t ordinary flowers. They’re parasites, living inside the vines of the genus Tetrastigma. “Rafflesias attach to the body of another, and grow at the expense of that plant,” says Ross Koning, a biologist at Eastern Connecticut State University who manages the campus greenhouse. “They can’t flower until they’ve gotten enough energy from the host, so these plants flower very rarely, and you have to hunt them.” Rafflesia doesn’t just smell like rotting meat, it looks like it too. Its flopping crimson petals are the color of raw venison, adorned with the kind of white flecks you might find on a poisonous mushroom. But the blooms last just a week before they wither and die.
Most of us are aware of the Star of Bethlehem mentioned in Matthew 2:1-12 account of the Magi who followed the star to the manger, but did you know that there were also other signs in the heavens at his birth?
Herod’s Death, Jesus’ Birth, and a Lunar Eclipse
Letters to the Editor debate dates of Herod’s death and Jesus’ birth
Both Luke and Matthew mention Jesus’ birth as occurring during Herod’s reign (Luke 1:5; Matthew 2:1). Josephus relates Herod’s death to a lunar eclipse. This is generally regarded as a reference to a lunar eclipse in 4 B.C. Therefore it is often said that Jesus was born in 4 B.C.
But physics professor John A. Cramer, in a letter to BAR, has pointed out that there was another lunar eclipse visible in Judea—in fact, two—in 1 B.C., which would place Herod’s death—and Jesus’ birth—at the turn of the era. Below, read letters published in the Q&C section of BAR debating the dates of Herod’s death, Jesus’ birth and to which lunar eclipse Josephus was referring. Read more
New Technique to Transform Anti-Venom Production
Snake bites kill more than 120,000 people a year, more than a third of them in India. About 400,000 lose limbs after amputations become necessary to prevent the spread of the venom. The number of people bitten by snakes is increasing as a result of more people living near areas which are snake habitats, but the production of venom antidotes has not changed much since anti-venom was first produced in 1896. Scientists are ready to transform the production of anti-venom after mapping the DNA of the Indian cobra for the first time. Read more
And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. Revelation 8:1-2
This passage has been on my mind of late. The reason is that during December there was a news silence in the places and sources I visit to bring you the news. Some of that is common given the time of year, but this year it was a peculiar silence, unnatural. I dug into the depths and it was silent. I cannot help but wonder in retrospect with news breaking in torrents once 2020 commenced if this was silence in heaven and demic forces before everything lets loose. Just a thought.
God Bless you from the trenches. Be safe everyone.
