    I'm doing a bit of research into prophecy, and was wondering what (if any) resources you guys have. Additionally, if anyone's able to tell me what the Dead Sea Scrolls contain, or the relationship between apocryphal manuscripts and the Catholic Church.

    Sure, it sounds boring, but it's not. It doesn't have to be Christian prophecy either. Anything from Sumerian to Aztec to African tribal is helpful.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Umm, as far as prophecy is concerned, I remain interested in the notion of the "Gyres".

    Yeats embraced it as history come full circle every 2000 years or so.

    The Second Coming -- W. B. Yeats

    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all convictions, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.



    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again; but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    No... I'd like it more based in history than 1-900.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"

    MN, I wasn't sure if you were addressing me but if so...

    The gyres pre-date Christianity and seem, admittedly, loosely accurate.

    It's basic history cycles and robed in prophecy. Still.

    Sorry Magic, I'm out of my depth.

    "Gyres" is an interesting concept though.
    I think Clive Barker touched upon that in the Weaveworld stories.

    Again, too modern.

    Nah, I was talking to clocker (and his sidekick Miss Cleo). Your post hadn't appeared when I wrote mine.

    I'll have to try to find my ancient religion books. Scary.

    Didnt sumarian astronomers know stuff that we've only recently discovered..

    ie Mid to late 20th Century.

    I think they numbered the planets backwards, and mercury's number was 11 or sth..in addition they knew the colour of planets we only recently discovered.



    This is something i heard way back....i'll look it up and see if i got all this right...



    Search for planet X

    Planet x...ancient knowledge




    Can i say before you all start, i heard stuff on a serious TV documentary, that i neither credit nor discredit. These crank sites are just to let you know what the hell im talking about, and i in no way endorse their views

    I've heard about Planet X in a few reputable science magazines.

    It's strange when you look at a number of the ancient civilizations, and they all have space-related similarities.

    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"

    Heres a link to an explanation of the Dead Sea Scrolls:

    Hope it helps
