Title: APOCALYPSE COW!
Post by: Unbeliever on September 11, 2018, 02:28:26 PM
I couldn't find a thread to put this in, so I had to start a new one.

First ‘red heifer’ born in Israel for 2,000 years triggers armageddon fears after Christian and Jewish holy books say it will ‘bring the end of the world’ (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7217719/bible-prophecy-apocalypse-firs-red-heifer-born-israel/)

Jewish Group Says End Times Biblical Prophecy Fulfilled, Flawless 'Red Heifer' Could Signal the Third Temple (https://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/world/2018/september/jewish-group-says-end-times-biblical-prophecy-fulfilled-first-flawless-red-heifer-could-signal-the-third-temple)

So now we know why all those end-times predictions of Armageddon didn't come true - they had to wait for a perfect red calf to be born!

Brace yourselves for a new storm of crazies claiming the Rapture will occur any day now. It'd be nice if it did happen, the world would be a much saner place without all those faith-heads bothering us.

Here's a video that explains it:

Of course, now that they finally have a red cow they have to kill it. Because God is love?

Just shows that being born "perfect" isn't necessarily all it's cracked up to be.

Several people I know are nuts about this sort of stuff.  I try not to bring up the subject.

The idea of "fulfilling prophecy" is nuts.  The Temple Institute is nuts.  The two Chief Rabbis of Israel would never agree to it.

I really don't think Israel would allow the demolishing of the Dome of the Rock or Al Aqsa Mosque.

The religious nuts consider modern Israel to be treif anyway ... among the first people to be oppressed, would be the majority of Israeli society, including the majority of Jews, who are rather secular.  At least most Muslims and Christians there are religious, the majority of Jews are not.

BTW ... the fully Orthodox Naturei Karta Jews are opposed to modern Israel, including any Temple Institute stuff.  Basically, only the Messiah can reestablish Israel, and the Socialist Atheist Jews who did, don't qualify.

Israel should never have been reborn, according to "God's Holy Word":

Quote from: Amos 5:2
The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise: she is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her up.

The heifer isn't even "red" anyway... more like a ruddy brown. Know your colors, people!

Not to make light of color, but I recall reading a personal account from someone.  She and her sister were arguing whether a particular dress was "apricot" or "salmon".  Their brother walked in and said it was "cantaloupe".  He worked at a paint store.

My bedroom is "aztec rouge", my computer room is "blueberry mist", my living room is "hunter green".  My TV room is "some dark red".  You can't know them all, LOL!

I might point out that just posting videos without some personal discussion about the post you are referring to often can begin to sound a bit lackadaisical on your part. 

"Not that there is anything WRONG with that".

I once read that watching Siefeld (never watched it myself ever) was like having a room with a view of a wall.  Nothing quite there.

My B-I-L bought some paint for his livingroom, a color called "Taurus Tan". I immediately dubbed it "Bullshit Brown". But not outloud.

I'll bet the polite term was "chocolate", but I get your point.  There ARE some colors no one but the most dedicated artist should ever use in the house.  I doubt any color that can be described biologically works in a house.

I call them "dens", but I usually refer to them as "rooms" for the convenience of others to understand.

Unbeliever, I seem to recall a big deal made about an albino bison calf born in the Datoka's and I think it had to do with the Sioux end times--or something.  That would be an apocalypse cow--right?

Are you misappropriating another culture?  Ghost Dance perhaps?

Apparently not.  You were remarking on the new albino calf.  And I misremembered something from Native American history.  To correct ...

I am familiar with the Ghost Dance.  I don't remember what group actually was all excited about that albino calf--it was very cute, tho--and why it was supposed to be so important.

The original prophet of the Ghost Dance, didn't support the deviant ways it developed.  I would have to research further ... but I am pretty sure it had to do with an albino buffalo calf ... the harbinger of the return of the buffalo, recently exterminated by the Whites.
