Study: Lockdowns did not reduce COVID spread or deaths

While health authorities keep demanding more lockdowns to stop COVID, study after study is revealing that the lockdowns did not work. Of course, that is presuming that their actual purpose was to stop the spread of COVID and reduce deaths. Yet another study conducted by the Harris School of Public Policy reveals that the lockdowns had little to no impact on COVID.

Revival: When God Steps Down from Heaven

By Dr. Michael L. Brown In a certain sense, God’s presence fills the universe. Yet there are times in history when God manifests His presence in a particular place or in a particular way that is unique and distinct and powerful and transformative. We call those times “revival.” During such times in the past, children would say, “Did you hear that Jesus came to my village?” Preachers would say, “God stepped down from heaven.” Something had changed, and everyone knew it. As I explained in the definition I have used for revival for many years, “Revival is a season of unusual divine visitation resulting in deep repentance, supernatural renewal, and sweeping reformation in the Church, along with the radical conversion of sinners in the world, often producing moral, social, and even economic change in the local or national communities.” Note in particular those words “a season of unusual divine visitation.” That is the very essence of revival.

One might be my own experiences of being marginalized. Another might be that the injustice and lack of public outcry anger me. I have written previously about how poverty and prejudice impacted my life. While I am in a place now in which prejudice and out-casting no longer affect me, I am still hurting for those for whom it does affect. And in these days of double racism, a dangerous idea in which people of color accuse white people of racism with racist chants and slogans of their own, there is so much division and hatred.  Violent elements have taken advantage of this and have burned and destroyed businesses and lives under the umbrella of social justice.

Asteroid game simulation ends badly

It was similar to a war game where generals use computer simulations to determine the eventual winner in a make believe war, but it involved an asteroid. A group of scientists from space agencies across Europe and in the US were given the scenario that a massive asteroid (named 2021PDC) was 35 million miles away and hurtling through space and destined to hit earth in six months.
