Genesis 12: The Call of Abram

Earnest Examination

This series is presented as an honest, sincere look into the study of the Bible with my own personal theories, opinions, comments and that of others’ insights and research into what the verses could mean. I cannot claim one way or another that everything that I am stating is fact and the true meaning of what is meant in these verses.

To lay it out in a way that I can manage, I have highlighted the texts of verses that I either don’t understand or have a comment or question about in yellow. And the comments I’ve left beneath it will be of a smaller font and using brown text.

I would love it if you’d join me in this journey and if you have any insights and/or knowledge of these chapters/verses etc., please feel free to share with me and the other readers. Any chance to get a clearer understanding of the Bible and Jesus Christ would be welcomed with open arms.

Version used is from biblestudytools.com (NKJV) Genesis 12

The Call of Abram

1 Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you.
2 I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
This verse seems like a contradiction to me. First it says that “I will bless those who bless you”, and then, “I will curse him who curses you”, yet in the very next section it states, “and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” …Doesn’t the last part of the sentence cancel out the first portion? Unless EVERYONE blesses Abram, then not all of the families on earth will be blessed. So this sounds a little confusing to me.
4 So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.
5 Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan.
6 Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land.
7 Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him.
8 And he moved from there to the mountain east of Bethel, and he pitched his tent with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east; there he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord.
9 So Abram journeyed, going on still toward the South.

Abram in Egypt

10 Now there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down to Egypt to dwell there, for the famine was severe in the land.
11 And it came to pass, when he was close to entering Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, “Indeed I know that you are a woman of beautiful countenance.
12 Therefore it will happen, when the Egyptians see you, that they will say, ‘This is his wife’; and they will kill me, but they will let you live.
I don’t understand the customs of each nation, but it’s interesting that Abram’s first instinct is that the Egyptians will kill him presumably to steal his wife from him. It’s also interesting to note that Abram is very well aware of his wife’s beauty, and it’s for this reason that he feels as if he would be looked at in hostility by the Egyptians simply for being the husband of a “beautiful” woman.
It’s also very telling that even during the birth of all the nations, that physical looks has so much influence on people’s lives. No one can help how they are born and what physical features they’re born with (or can they…?) so to automatically judge someone based on their looks seems like such a strange concept to me. Of course, if one were inclined to believe that to be born with physical beauty is a ‘blessing from the gods’ or good karma, etc. then I can see why people would feel as if “beautiful” people are blessed – but as we can see in today’s society, this is most certainly NOT TRUE, as even some of the most beautiful people are corrupted to the core. So it all boils down to what is aesthetically pleasing in someone’s eyes, and that they could ultimately care less what kind of personality the person has, as long as they’re beautiful.
This is, of course, not speaking for everyone, but just a mentality that some people hold.

13 Please say you are my sister, that it may be well with me for your sake, and that I may live because of you.”
Was this plan strictly coming from Abram? Was he going with his gut instinct? It seemed to work well, in the end, but it would be nice to know where this intuition came from. A voice outside of his own being? His own conscience? The Lord Himself? Well, it’s probably not the Lord since if it was so, then that would imply that the Lord directly told Abram to lie, and that’s not righteous or holy, correct? God is Truth, so it wouldn’t make sense for Him to guide someone else into lying.
14 So it was, when Abram came into Egypt, that the Egyptians saw the woman, that she was very beautiful.
15 The princes of Pharaoh also saw her and commended her to Pharaoh. And the woman was taken to Pharaoh’s house.
16 He treated Abram well for her sake. He had sheep, oxen, male donkeys, male and female servants, female donkeys, and camels.
Wow, so just because someone’s ‘sibling’ is BEAUTIFUL, they get to be treated like a “king” just to remain in good standing with the person they potentially want to pursue relationships with. Is that really what natural selection dictates? Do we not care what character a person has, but instead put all (most?) of our emphasis on looks?
17 But the Lord plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram’s wife.
So… I have a bone to pick with our Lord. It is apparent that the Lord can dictate to whom He sends curses and plagues down into. He aimed deliberately for Pharaoh’s kingdom and his house, all because Abram lied to the Pharaoh about Sarai being his sister instead of his wife and that Pharaoh made an honest mistake. According to this account. So here’s the clueless Pharaoh, not even realizing why he’s being plagued (and I’m not stating that the Pharaoh is completely innocent in this dealing, by the way, because like Abram stated, perhaps they really would have killed him if they had known right away that he was Sarai’s husband) and it makes me wonder how much the Pharaoh believes in the same Lord that Abram does.
So my problem with this ordeal is that for God to initiate this very targeted attack on the Pharaoh for picking on His blessed family, it implies that God can do this to whomever He wants, whenever He wants, and for whatever reason He wants. So to still allow incredibly evil acts to run rampant instead of ‘smiting’ or sending down plagues against corrupted individuals, when they do TRULY awful things, is a very severe oversight and the reason for a lot of people not believing in God. I went through this very same phase when I was younger, thinking that if God exists, how could He allow such evil to continue? Of course, we don’t know all the mysteries and plans involved in this strange world and in our lives, and that ‘free will’ plays a huge part in the way our world is run, but for an almighty God to literally send plagues to an Egyptian ruler simply because he was misled in believing that a particular woman is single, meanwhile millions of kids are starving to death and being sold/trafficked to truly horrendous people – the comparison doesn’t even make sense.

18 And Pharaoh called Abram and said, “What is this you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife?
19 Why did you say, ‘She is my sister’? I might have taken her as my wife. Now therefore, here is your wife; take her and go your way.”

Even though lying is technically wrong, and satan himself is called Father of Lies, I’m wondering if there is truly a distinction between lying to manipulatively deceive someone, and lying for ‘the better good’. Abram’s lie was to protect himself because he knew, somehow, that he would be on the chopping block if the Egyptians realized that he was Sarai’s husband. And in so doing, he was also protecting Sarai from being kidnapped, essentially, to an unknown life that she may not be accustomed to or appreciate. So it does bring up the question if it’s ever okay to lie.
Some people bring up the fact that one of the 10 commandments is “Thou shall not lie”, but that’s not exactly what it says or implies. The actual commandment is, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor”. Meaning we shouldn’t slander or lie about our neighbor’s (fellow peoples) deeds. However, since Jesus Christ is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life”, it goes without saying that probably the best way to maintain righteousness is to stay in Truth. After all, if Abram was already being looked out for by God Himself, then Abram very well could have told the truth that he is Sarai’s husband, and no matter what the Egyptians tried to do to him, it wouldn’t pan out for them anyway.

20 So Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him; and they sent him away, with his wife and all that he had.

This was a very interesting look into the relationship between God and Abram, and how much the Lord really did to protect Abram and Sarai from possible subjugation of the Egyptians. It does bring up to question though if God still works this way on a personal level like He did back in these biblical times. And if He is working this way, perhaps many of us just don’t know about it.

As usual, I want to reiterate that some of my thoughts and theories may be way off base, and I also research some other things on the side as well to try and get a broader understanding of what I’m reading, so please bear with me, or, even better, if you have insights that bring more light to these verses, please let me know.

I enjoy bouncing off theories and theology off of each other and love to hear other people’s perspectives on things. Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

What is the Transubstantiation of the Eucharist?

Is it a form of cannibalism?

There’s been a lot of debate surrounding the transubstantiation of the eucharist, and if Catholics really believe that they’re eating the flesh of Jesus Christ, and literally drinking his blood.

The whole point (at least in some Catholic circles) of transubstantiation is to magically alter the regular piece of bread into Jesus Christ’s flesh, and the drink into His blood. To partake in and consume in order to have the life and spirit of Jesus Christ within us.

Hm… it sounds an awful lot like cannibalism to me. But to be fair, let’s take an in depth look into what actual Catholics and scholars believe is the meaning of this verse:

53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.
54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.
57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.
58 This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”
John 6:53-58

“So, what did Jesus mean when he spoke about eating his flesh and drinking his blood? He certainly wasn’t talking about cannibalism!

He was talking about true religion. What Jesus meant is that it’s got to be personal. Jesus was saying that you don’t receive eternal life by understand concepts or by believing the right things, but instead by a personal and intimate relationship with him. Jesus must be to us more important than our very food and drink, and closer to us than the nourishment that courses through our body that helps us to live.”
What Does It Mean to Eat Christ’s Flesh and To Drink His Blood?

So according to the site above, they believe that the eucharist is meant to be taken symbolically, and ‘of course it’s not literal!’

Another insight into the belief that the transubstantiation is symbolic can be found here, as well as many other researched sites.

But further study and insight into this mysterious tradition does indeed show that many Catholics and practitioners of this ritual truly do believe that they are literally eating the body of Christ and drinking His blood.

And on average, according to several consensus studies, about 1 in 3 Catholics fully believe in the eucharist doctrine that the host transforms into the actual body/flesh and blood of Jesus Christ, while the other 2/3 believe that it is a symbolic, spiritual essence.

Results from the Pew Research Center: Understanding US Catholics’ belief in the Eucharist

There are even scientific studies declaring some rather unusual characteristics of these consecrated hosts that have undergone a transubstantiation process:

The video above shows several scientists/doctors/researchers who have studied the host’s transformation, and even hypothesizes the tools that would be necessary to replicate such a miracle:

– Odoardo Linoli
– Fredrick Zugibe
– Franco Serafini
– Jason DeGregorio
– Eduardo Sanchez Lazo

And as you can see, the full belief and trust in this miracle is alive and well by not only the creator of the video, but also many of the viewers who have left their own comments. And again, I am not bashing anyone for their beliefs. This is an attempt for me to truly understand these miracles and what may be happening. While I am a believer of Christ, I am also somewhat of a skeptic, especially when it comes to a process that involves the literal consumption of someone’s flesh and blood.

Some of the interesting similarities between the wafers discussed in the video are:

– They were revealed to be AB blood type
– The material derived seemed to have come from the left ventricle of the heart – while it was still alive
– The heart suffered massive trauma

(I don’t know about you… but this literally makes my own heart hurt and I can’t even imagine the circumstances that were involved in order to duplicate this kind of organic tissue result…)

While it may seem that these miracles are indeed mysterious and of a divine nature (or a terribly horrific one), I have to bring up a theory that some of the “host” wafers are not merely flour and water, like most people believe. I won’t get into the gritty details, but I will mention the possibilities that can arise between a religion that may be inclined to convince the public that miracles exist, with the combination of science and the capabilities of the technological age that are quite advanced at creating fabulous “signs and wonders” that the layman may not have even dreamed possible.

(And the insane amount of effort and length that these deceivers would go to, to convince the public in order to maintain their status as the religious world leader…)

For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
Matthew 24:24

This is a very cautious warning for us believers, to be very discerning when it comes to anything deemed “miraculous”. I have to remind everyone that a favorite practice of satan (who is called a liar, the father of lies, and the deceiver – and who also disguises himself as an angel of light) is to invert everything good and holy into one of corruption and wickedness.

What does the Bible say about demonic/satanic miracles?

What better way to do this than to lead the followers astray by taking Jesus Christ’s spiritual/metaphorical words, and twisting them into the belief that one must literally consume His flesh and drink His blood? Which by today’s measure, could be deemed as a cannibalistic, ritualistic custom. After all, if we read outside of the Bible and take a peek into the Book of Enoch, it states that one of the reasons why the great flood happened at all is because the nephilim (offspring of the fallen angels) gave in to the consumption of human flesh and all sorts of wicked tendencies.

(referring to the giants/nephilim) 3. Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them,
4. the giants turned against them and devoured mankind.
5. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another's flesh, and drink the blood.
6. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones.
Book of Enoch 7:3-6

On August 18, 1996, a woman parishioner allegedly found a consecrated host on a candle holder and brought it to Fr. Alejandro Pezet. After a few days of leaving the host in the tabernacle to dissolve, found that it had been transformed into a bloody tissue that was much larger than the original host. It was then photographed and sent for scientific study by none other than our current Pope Francis (Jorge Bergoglio).

The Eucharistic Miracle Overseen by Archbishop Bergoglio (Now Pope Francis)

Just as an added bonus, here are some questionable quotes from Pope Francis himself:

Pope John Paul II was a saint, I am the devil.”
“having a personal relationship with Jesus is dangerous and very harmful.”

– Pope Francis Says: “I Am The Devil”

“Joking” or not, these are pretty serious statements coming from the head of the Roman Catholic Church…

Here’s another extremely controversial quote, from Pope Francis:

“‘Yes, I carry the cross to show that I am a Christian.’ ” And “It’s fine,” but “not just as a badge, as if it were a team, the badge of a team’; but [rather], said Francis, “as the memory of the man who made himself sin, who made himself the devil, the serpent, for us; he debased himself up to the point of totally annihilating himself.”

Pope Francis: Christ “Made Himself the Devil”

There are also some extremely disturbing and, quite frankly, terrifying, implications of the Vatican installing satan as the new head of the church and the shady practices they engage in… so take that for what it’s worth…

Satanic Black Masses at the Vatican

Follow that up with this additional perspective from Pope Francis, and it starts to paint an incredibly sordid and depraved picture…

Pope Francis compares abuse by priests to ‘satanic mass’

I have to admit, one of the reasons why it’s so hard for me to accept the Catholic teachings that the bread and wine literally become Jesus Christ in the flesh and blood, is because it sets a dangerous precedent on consuming the body and blood of the innocent, to maintain a “saving grace” to wipe away one’s own sins. While Jesus Christ Himself should be the ONLY one to turn to, there are certain religious sects that take His word to heart, even further, by following the same verse of John 6:53, but with a slightly different meaning that changes everything:

53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you
John 6:53

We see that “Son of Man” is capitalized, which presumes that it is a title given to Jesus Christ. However, if one were to take this verse literally and dissect its meaning, well, most of us would not consider Jesus Christ to be the “Son of Man”. Don’t we all consider Him the Son of God? So who is the Son of Man? Why would Jesus Christ be referring to Himself in this way? After all, if the biblical story of Jesus’s birth is any indication, He was not even born from a man but from a virgin woman and the holy spirit in the “Immaculate conception.” Of course, “man” is usually the term used to include all of humanity (mankind), so this could easily be explained away. And since Jesus is not one to boast about His heritage coming from God, He states also that He came from man.

But, as many confused or simply immoral groups will pursue, one can misconstrue any verse and twist its meaning to suit their own agenda. So now this “Son of Man” title can literally refer to ANYONE. “Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man (any human being) and drink His (in some translations, “His” is not capitalized) blood, you have no life in you.”

And while people may laugh and scoff at the idea, the history of vampirism is a very real ideology, and there are some that truly believe that in order to have a long and healthy life, one must consume another being’s flesh and drink their blood.

History of Vampires

Even if ‘vampires’ in the traditional sense don’t really exist, there are still many people that believe that consuming other human being’s flesh/blood will give them a longer lifespan and/or give them mystical powers. There are also pagans/witches/warlocks… even misguided souls that have reverted to using ‘blood magic’ to help them with their woes or any other number of transgressions or desires:

Practicing Witchcraft: What You Should Know About Blood Magic

While the author of the above article tries to present this practice in a benign way, even setting “rules” as to how one should use blood in their magic, they cannot speak for everyone that they will adhere to this. If we know anything about the human nature and the addictive quality that power (even an allusion of power) gives to anyone, once they get a taste for it, the measures taken goes to extremes and therefore steps outside of the boundaries that was once set upon them.

Although imho, this occultic practice should not even be attempted since it is quite possibly opening doors that should never be opened. It invites spirits/demons in and may be one of the reasons why people claim to be cursed/haunted/possessed, etc.

In closing, while I do agree that the wordings of the verses lean heavily into a physical consumption of the body and blood of Christ, I am also of the belief that translations and interpretations get confused, especially when trying to ascribe meaning and words to an ancient language. (And that’s if the translations are not skewed on purpose…)

After doing all of this research and myself being a believer of Christ, I have come to this understanding:

The ingestion of the bread/wafer that indicates Jesus’s flesh is a symbolic gesture for that person saying, “I come to you, Jesus Christ.” while the drinking of the “wine” is akin to saying, “I believe in you, Jesus Christ.” Not that Jesus was literally referring to Himself as a physical manifestation that people must eat and drink.

35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
John 6:35

It is my belief that Jesus was indeed speaking in metaphorical terms and talking from a spiritual standpoint. He knew that the hard-hearted, the unbelievers, the stubborn materialistic inclinations of some people would not understand His sayings no matter how He worded it. And that some people may be misled by this teaching. So He spoke with this type of parable to the people that could glean meaning and understanding that Jesus Christ is asking His followers to pursue a spiritual path – instead of the physical.

Of course, I have to admit, for Jesus to describe people’s manner of following Him in this way, does leave it open to different perceptions/interpretations. After all, if one were to read His verses in the literal sense, there is no other way to differentiate His meaning other than an actual consuming of His flesh and drinking of His blood. And it’s fascinating that even other Catholics cannot come to a resounding definitive answer as to the purpose of the eucharist/transubstantiation.

But perhaps to clarify, and put this whole situation to rest, Jesus also says this to his disciples after his very controversial, parabolic teaching:

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
John 6:63

Again, why Jesus Christ decided to tell His allegory in such a perplexing way, is perhaps the bigger mystery.

Was He testing His followers and other believers/non-believers alike? To see who would still follow Him and understand this spiritual/conscious teachings?

(And on the flip-side, to see who would take His words literal and continue seeking the physical fulfillment of a worldly life with material sustenance – instead of The Word and Life of the Spirit…)

Bottom line, God knows the motives of our heart. If we come to Him with a sincere and genuine faith and pure intentions, God knows this; and whether we believe in the literal transubstantiation of the eucharist or not, it should not be the key determinant in what kind of person you are or what kind of life you’re living.

After all, one can participate in the mass, yet not be a believer at all…

Personal disclaimer: These are my understandings and beliefs only. In no way am I claiming to know the absolute Truth. This is just what resonates with me and what I have come to realize during my quest to seek Jesus Christ and information I have gathered from the Bible and other sources.

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either.

Exposing NASA’s Many Lies

Revealing some dubious actions of the most infamous space enterprise.

Whew! What a rabbit hole, ladies and gentlemen.

After researching the NASA (national aeronautics and space administration) organization and the alleged space explorations they’ve been conducting, I’ve come to my own opinion that it is all one HUGE lie.

Below, we’ll take a look at the many, MANY times NASA has been caught lying, on top of other rather extremely suspicious circumstances.

Enjoy! (or don’t, being massively lied to by a billion-dollar organization on what they’re doing with people’s tax money… also thank the government for that.)

1. Caught staging a simulation or hologram?

The whole video makes a very interesting case about NASA and their illegitimacy, including CGI fakery, strange physics, continuity errors, etc. so I highly encourage viewing the whole video. But at the :30 second mark, you can see a gentleman literally disappearing through an entry port in this alleged spacecraft. This is just one of MANY times the “space exploration” teams have been caught using deception and different kinds of technology to simulate a trip into outer space.

2. NASA caught faking photos

Take a look at the following images and the bizarre excuses and “coincidences” that preside with it:

Some people will try and explain away this picture by stating that NASA had no other choice but to super impose duplicate areas of the Earth onto the image in order to fill in gaps (whatever that means…), but more than likely, someone in the editting room was just too lazy to render the fake image correctly, and quite possibly banked on the idea that people wouldn’t catch them in the act. And with the amount of shills pouring themselves over NASA (are they getting paid to do it?), knew that they would have some misled souls to come to their defense.

This isn’t the only example, by the way. There are tons of them. And this video also proposes additional theories as to what the planets could be textured by.

This image is directly shown on NASA’s own website, allegedly depicting the Earth in 2015. Now, either God is one huge practical joker, or NASA is pulling a fast one over the public’s eyes. Which one do you think it is?

The image on the left shows the landscape in Mauna Kea, Hawaii.

The image on the right shows the moon landscape from the Apollo 17 mission. (supposedly…)

By a bizarre set of pure coincidence, it just so happens that the Apollo 17 astronauts were able to land at a specific distance to that particular hill on the moon, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the same distance as the hill/summit of Mauna Kea. What are the chances?

Did I forget to mention? Mauna Kea was a direct training ground for the Apollo astronauts.

Investigating the Apollo Valley

Buzz Aldrin standing infront of the hills in Mauna Kea, Hawaii. There seems to have been some photo editing going on, as you can see the large mountain in the distance in this photo, but not in the other two. Unless it’s a matter of perspective being on the other side of the hills, coincidentally showing similar geographic terrain.

Screenshot taken from nasa.gov website

This is, quite frankly, the stupidest picture I’ve ever seen. Especially since it’s coming from a corporation who “allegedly” spends billions of dollars a year to explore space, yet they expect us to believe that this is an “actual image” captured from one of their satellites that’s positioned a MILLION miles from Earth. (But hey, I guess they win, because apparently some people DO believe this is real. #sigh – 2016 Tournament Earth Champion: The Dark Side of the Moon)

I worry about the human race. : (

And here is the image of Earth captured from the Apollo 11 mission that supposedly landed on the moon in 1969.

Screenshot taken from nasa.gov website

I don’t believe this is a real image either, but do we see any significant perspective changes between this image “taken in 1969” and the one from 2015? No? Just me? Did the Earth grow exponentially since then?

2011: “Now a new NASA study, published recently in Geophysical Research Letters, has essentially laid those speculations to rest. Using a cadre of space measurement tools and a new data calculation technique, the team detected no statistically significant expansion of the solid Earth.” – NASA research confirms it’s a small world, after all

Whew. I’m glad NASA could put that speculation to rest. Because after all, if it’s coming from NASA, it must be the truth. Still doesn’t explain how the two photos above both came from space though, while depicting the same objects with outrageous size differences. Unless between 2011-2015 the Earth did, in fact, grow to that massive size. Or the moon shrunk. Perhaps NASA will come out with another study to explain this.

3. “Astronauts” in water

The official claim made is that astronauts train underwater because it closely simulates what it would be like to be in outer space with the difference in gravity compared to Earth. However, even if this was a legitimate reason, how would that explain passing off these underwater escapades as actual “space exploration” footage for the public’s viewing pleasure?

This video makes a very compelling case exposing NASA trying to pass off underwater training as real outer space expeditions.

(Almost similar to how they were trying to pass off simulations from rocky Earth terrains as real moon landings…)

4. Obvious Hairspray is Obvious

If it’s a simple matter of keeping hair out of one’s face, even in zero g… then the usual routine would probably involve putting the hair up in a ponytail or a bun, and/or use hairpins.

But THIS:

is utterly ridiculous, and a waste of money.

Are we really to believe that just because someone puts on a ton of hairspray to deliberately style their hair to depict what it may look like in outer space, that everyone is just going to buy this notion and continue on with our blind faith in this dishonest institution?

Well, apparently, because as we all SHOULD know, hair obviously defies the laws of physics and just sticks straight up on space missions and then bounces back into a designated shape, even though a heavier, denser object – like metal (maybe a necklace, say, or a zipper) floats freely around.

And if you watch closely, you can also tell there’s something fishy about the gentleman’s necklace…

While Bart Sibrel is known for his “ambush” journalism, the takeaway from these interviews is that Mr. Sibrel makes these former astronauts extremely uncomfortable and extremely defensive.

If it was an honest manner of really going to the moon, like they’re claiming, then why are their reactions and responses so hostile, and even in some cases, fearful? Almost as if this investigative journalist is close to finding out the truth and the men involved in this corruption/coverup have been coerced into silence and they take out their vitriol on anyone who comes close to exposing this egregious scheme.

There are many more examples than just this, in which we can see the awkwardness and uncertainty in some of the officials being interviewed, and it lends a significant distrust in the eyes of the public. (At least, if the people haven’t been completely brain-washed by the different establishments – government/education/media, etc.)

Here’s a look at some different transcripts from other cringe-worthy interviews:

If you watch the link connected with this Q/A,  pay close attention to the “astronauts’ ” body language and nervous expressions. Not to mention the rather telling response that was given:

Question:What can we do in an age where, so many people seem so skeptical about what they see and hear to assure them that what they’re seeing from us is, as you explore space is actually real, and uh, can you also tell us where over the Earth you are, about right now?

Answer:Well I think uh, it’s our duty to continue to just produce imagery of all types. Video imagery and still imagery, and we’ll do it with a, integrity, and uh, and the more we put out there the more real it becomes to everyone.

NASA Busted! Clone tool overusage. Space is a photoshop production!

Keep in mind, low-Earth orbit is considered to be between 160-2,000 km (99-1200 miles), and by NASA’s own admission, the moon (which astronauts allegedly landed on in the late 60’s-70’s) is estimated to be ~384,000 km (238,855 miles).

3:37 – 3:50:But we’re also really pushing the boundaries in terms of where we’re going forward with exploration. I think, uh, humans are naturally driven to do this, and this is really the beginning, I think, of human beings leaving low-Earth orbit.

4:08 – 4:51:The plan that NASA has is to build a rocket called SOS, which is a heavy-lift rocket. It’s something that is, that is much bigger than what we have today, and it will be able to launch the Orion capsule with humans on board, as well as landers or other components to destinations beyond Earth orbit.

Right now, we only can fly in Earth orbit. That’s the farthest that we can go. And this new system that we’re building is going to allow us to go beyond, and hopefully take humans into the solar system to explore, so- the moon, Mars, asteroids, there’s a lot of destinations that we could go to and we’re building these building block components in order to allow us to do that eventually.

NASA ADMITS WE NEVER WENT TO THE MOON

6. A threat to contact CIA to “wax” a researcher

At the end of Bart Sibrel’s “interview” with Ed Mitchell – as we can see at the end of the “Astronauts Gone Wild” video posted above, we not only have the direct threat from Mr. Mitchell to get a gun and shoot Bart, but then his son speaks up and says quite plainly, “Want to call the CIA and have them waxed?

Waxed for what, exactly? Questioning the NASA narrative that the moon walk was real? Coming to that house/office under “false pretenses”? Accusing him of satanic participation? (Michael Aquino, anyone?)

Are these legitimate reasons to have someone waxed? What about using taxpayers’ money to fraudulently claim to going to the moon just to have something to show for it while using that money for other reasons? Why are all these astronauts so concerned with the moral ethics of this journalist, and not their own moral ethics for possibly lying to billions of people while simultaneously protecting the industry who is working to deceive and manipulate everyone into following a certain scientific belief?

As some people have proposed, could these “astronauts” have been mind-controlled by the CIA into believing the very tale that the government/NASA has perpetrated worldwide, and/or these astronauts inherently know that they are in the wrong, but are under compliance as a means of “national security”?

After all, if the son of Edgar Mitchell was so cavalier as to announce that they basically have the CIA on speed dial (I may be embellishing the story a little – but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was close to the truth) to “take care of” opposition, it ties into the theory that the CIA was(is) indeed closely tied to the NASA missions. – NASA’s Secret Relationships with U.S. Defense and Intelligence Agencies

7. NASA logo

Not everything has to be about exposing the lies and cover-up that NASA in engaged in. Just take a look at their logo, which is obviously meant to depict a snake tongue flicking out towards Earth.

Why is that so suspect?

Well, when you have several other organizations, like the WHO (medical industry in general) and the Vatican, both of which are, imho, corrupt factions, that use a snake as their logo – not to mention the biblical side of things depicting the serpent as the wicked, sinful entity causing the fall of man, AND the fact that the serpent (many who claim is Satan/Devil/Lucifer) is called the “FATHER OF LIES” and “THE DECEIVER” – along with many other flattering nicknames, it makes one wonder the true reason why they would use the snake as their logo.

(Not to mention there’s some heated debate that nasa literally means “to deceive” in Hebrew. A lot of people claim that tptsb love to use symbolism and play on words/origin to indicate what they’re doing in secret. Another interesting coincidence: Neil A. (Armstrong) is “alien” backwards. Funny how he was the very first person that landed on the moon.)

Sure some may argue that it’s not really a snake tongue and instead some ribbon or some yada yada yada, but research into these organizations and their motives would suggest otherwise.

Back in 1830, there is an account of a vision of Mary who appeared to St. Catherine Labouré and told her to make a model of this vision: Mary, standing on a snake, which is curled on top of the Earth. What does this “Miraculous Medalreally mean?

8. Excuses, excuses, excuses

When was the last time we went to the moon?

1972? But why?

Because of this?

US spaceflight operations were focused entirely on Low Earth Orbit activities, as well as admirable cooperative international programs such as the International Space Station, and major scientific instruments such as Mars Pathfinder, Opportunity/Spirit and Curiosity. Other major concerns have redirected US attentions from spaceflight: the United States’ War on Terror, which is expected to cost US taxpayers over $5 trillion dollars in the long run.The Real Story Of Apollo 17… And Why We Never Went Back To The Moon

Really?

Or how about this reason?

A 2005 report by NASA estimated that returning to the moon would cost about $104 billion ($133 billion today, with inflation) over about 13 years. The Apollo program cost about $120 billion in today’s dollars.

Manned exploration is the most expensive space venture and, consequently, the most difficult for which to obtain political support,” Cunningham said during his testimony.Astronauts explain why nobody has visited the moon in more than 45 years — and the reasons are depressing

(Yes. Please don’t waste ANYMORE taxpayers money on staged programs that are a complete farce. Thank you.)

Maybe it’s THIS reason: ALIENS Here’s the real reason why NASA never returned to the Moon (Video)

Or this laughable reason: I’d go to the moon in a nanosecond. The problem is we don’t have the technology to do that anymore. We used to but we destroyed that technology and it’s a painful process to build it back again.NASA ADMITS WE NEVER WENT TO THE MOON

No, I think the real reason is that we’ve never been to begin with.

9.  Debate on the physics of the spacecraft landing

This is just a supposition, but if NASA really did go to the moon in 1969, and the total weight of the lunar lander when it landed was supposedly around 24 tons, of course not counting the gravity difference between the moon and the Earth (if that is even true…), one could wonder why there is no apparent disturbance to the ground underneath the spacecraft. Even a light bicycle will kick up some dust and disturb the terrain, depending on the conditions of the ground, of course.

Yet with this event, we are to believe that a 24 ton spacecraft merely spread out dust away from underneath the landing area and did nothing more to the ground. Due to our limited knowledge of the exact nature of the moon’s composition, it is honestly hard to say what this massive spacecraft could do.

However, if we take the following video into account, showing how easy it was for Neil Armstrong to disturb the dust around his feet, even kicking up the dust in a similar fashion to that of Earth:

And then seeing one of the legs of the craft on the solid ground, undisturbed by any collection of dust/sand/etc., compared to the footsteps RIGHT NEXT to it, clearly showing deep impressions from a much lighter object (a human being), I’m going to have to call B.S. on this whole operation. Even with the amount of distribution at the bottom of each leg, the physics of this phenomena do not add up.

And it is NOT indented into the ground on one side, as some people have proposed:

As with everything that NASA has been caught out on, they have some “scientific mumbo-jumbo” to try and back themselves up, as well as the poor deluded people that refuse to believe anything untowards is happening; other than conspiratorial minds just coming up with “crazy theories” due to their paranoia, that is. Refusing to look at the data and the evidence and instead just becoming talking points for this deceptive company and rehashing everything they’re peddling, is a tragic sign of how far mass manipulation has become.

10. “Moon rocks” came from Earth

Soon after Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins’ return to Earth from the Apollo mission, a moon rock was given to Willem Drees Jr. as a gift:

The rock was given as a private gift to former prime minister Willem Drees Jr in 1969 by the U.S. ambassador to The Netherlands, J. William Middendorf II, during a visit by the Apollo 11 astronauts, Armstrong, Collins and Aldrin, soon after the first moon landing.” – Moon Rock Turns Out to be Fake

However, after scientific study of this rock, concluded that it was actually petrified wood.

And from the Apollo 14 mission, a 1.8 gram specimen was suspected of coming from Earth, having many qualities of rock compositions from our planet than what scientists would expect from the moon.

Research author Professor Alexander Nemchin, from Curtin’s School of Earth and Planetary Sciences, said in a statement the tiny 1.8-gram sample of Moon rock is similar in composition to granite.

The expert said: “The sample also contains quartz, which is an even more unusual find on the Moon.”

Professor Nemchin also added, “It is possible that some of these unusual conditions could have occurred very locally and very briefly on the Moon and the sample is a result of this brief deviation from normality.

However, a simpler explanation is that this piece was formed on the Earth and brought to the surface of the Moon as a meteorite generated by an asteroid hitting Earth about four billion years ago, and throwing material into space and to the Moon.” – NASA Moon landing SHOCK: Apollo 14 Moon rock sample came from EARTH – Not from space

Uh huh. An even simpler, simpler explanation is that they never went to the moon at all.

BONUS:

The questionable build of the lunar lander aside (just look at it), while capturing just the little bit of Earth off in the distance in 1969… compared to their award-winning Earth and moon photo in 2015/2016…

lol

It’s crazy the amount of things that NASA has been caught fibbing in; from their numerous shady interviews with supposed astronauts, who can’t come to the same conclusion of whether they could see stars in space or not, to the very obvious fake images. Keep in mind, this is just a very small list of the suspicious actions that NASA has engaged in. And it’s even crazier that people still believe these lies.

Sadly, until people open their eyes and finally concede that NASA and the government have been implementing this duplicitous scheme, the world will continue to be led astray. “Space” is not the answer.

And on another rather related mystery, I propose that there may just be a dome/firmament around us (that the world leaders don’t want us to know about), but that is another topic for a different day.
