They got pounced on and 'shut down' because of papal politics. Lot's of information out there, but I did a lot of resarch on them as a kid.
Seems things haven't changed much. The 'ching' moment was realising we are having another repetition.... Hinging on Friday 13ths.
Just do some reasearch by typing in Friday 13th financial crisis and see what is brought up!
Then go look at this link: It is publicising a lecture tour. I would like to see a documentary of this; http://www.ebbwvaleinstitute.org/news/ian-r-crane-talk-friday-13th-may-2011-from-7pm
If we are simply unaware of this happening in the 'Big Picture', we are going to be enslaved forever in someone else's 'world'.
As I said, God hates SLAVERY, AND USURY.
I had a 'ching' moment just now about Daniel's vision; Daniel ch 2 v24 to 45 NIV. I might write an essay on it sometime.
Just like to mention that my Grandfather was a draughts and chess champion. Played a lot of draughts with him until we always ended in stalemate. Up to that point I always lost, then My Grandfather would explain the whole game and tell me where I made the wrong choices. Then we started on chess.
We played a lot of board games as a kids. Monopoly always caused great fights and arguments... Risk came out later, my Husband and I like this game (must buy a current version). His Aunty always let Him win every game as a child, so he gets very annoyed if he is losing. The game we always like to play is Scrabble. However we use the small oxford dictionary as a rule book.
Dominoes is good too, reminds me very much of making connections and circuitry. I have actually played games where in 'St Saviours' where the 'spots' actually change as you go along! You get to meet great people in a mental hospital.
If kids sit in front of a TV or play video games they are being 'brainwashed' and not being given an opportunity to develop their neural pathways effectively. It's a psychotropic drug in my opinion and needs parental oversight.
Excuse the pinched link, but this is what I mean about making informed choices, Apologetics is very important, so are Atheists. If we didn't have the 'Doubting Thomas' facility, we would not be objective in our reasoning; http://www.ivorytowermetaphysics.com/?p=257
