Lunacy & The Age of Deception - Chapter 17

The Myth Makers

Walt Disney and Wernher Von Braun

Most Americans are aware of the German rocket engineer Wernher Von Braun’s association with NASA. Following is an excerpt from Wikipedia.

In his twenties and early thirties, Wernher von Braun worked in Germany's rocket development program, where he helped design and develop the V-2 rocket at Peenemünde during World War II. Following the war, von Braun worked for the United States Army on an intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM) program before his group was assimilated into NASA. Under NASA, he served as director of the newly formed Marshall Space Flight Center and as the chief architect of the Saturn V launch vehicle, the superbooster that propelled the Apollo spacecraft to the Moon. According to NASA, he is, "without doubt, the greatest rocket scientist in history," as well as the "Father of Rocket Science." In 1975, he received the National Medal of Science. He continued insisting on the human mission to Mars throughout his life.

What makes a deception particularly effective is the merging of truth and lies. A deception based wholly on lies is implausible, and more difficult to sell to the public. NASA does employ rocket scientists, and they do send rockets beyond Earth’s atmosphere. NASA, however, has never sent men to the Moon, and Wernher Von Braun’s insistence that men can reach the planet Mars is only credible to those who believe man has already walked on the lunar surface. As we have observed, the Saturn V rocket, whose success is credited to Wernher Von Braun, was a work of deception. Its publicized capabilities were exaggerated. NASA did not possess a heavy lift rocket with the capability of sending 130 tons of equipment into lower earth orbit, and from there propelling men all the way to the Moon.

Before taking the oversight position of the Saturn V development program, Wernher Von Braun had declared that it would require a far more colossal rocket to reach the Moon. In the book Conquest of the Moon, published in 1953, Wernher Von Braun made the following comments.

It is commonly believed that man will fly directly from the earth to the moon, but to do this, we would require a vehicle of such gigantic proportions that it would prove an economic impossibility. It would have to develop sufficient speed to penetrate the atmosphere and overcome the earth’s gravity and, having traveled all the way to the moon, it must still have enough fuel to land safely and make the return trip to earth. Furthermore, in order to give the expedition a margin of safety, we would not use one ship alone, but a minimum of three… each rocket ship would be taller than New York’s Empire State Building and weigh about ten times the tonnage of the Queen Mary, or some 800,000 tons.

Why did Von Braun state that it would require such a colossal rocket to send men to the Moon? At the time he made this statement, he had been studying mathematics, physics, and rocket design for 25 years. His comments in Conquest of the Moon represent the rational conclusions of a man who had spent decades designing rockets. Why did his estimation of what was required to land men on the Moon and return them to Earth alter so significantly after NASA hired him to salvage the Saturn V, a rocket which despite 5 years of development at Rocketdyne, the leading rocket builder in America, had not recorded a single successful launch by 1967? Were Von Braun’s remarks in this book a disclosure of the reality of rocket science at the time, while his work at NASA was more myth than reality?

NASA has built a mythological reputation around this German rocket scientist. This was out of necessity, for only “the greatest rocket scientist in history” could possibly have pulled off such an astounding feat as building a rocket capable of sending men to the Moon and back in the 1960s. Consider the extraordinary nature of the accomplishment attributed to Wernher Von Braun. On January 31, 1958, America sent its first rocket into space. This was the Explorer 1 Mission atop a Juno 1 rocket. The total weight lifted into space was 30 pounds (14 kilograms). By 1967 NASA’s most capable rocket, the Saturn 1B, could reportedly lift 46,000 pounds (23 tons) into low earth orbit. NASA would need a rocket capable of lifting 260,000 pounds (130 tons) into low earth orbit, and then boosting 90,000 pounds of that payload into a lunar trajectory to carry it an additional 240,000 miles to the Moon, and an equal number of miles on the return. How do you get from 23 tons in low earth orbit (approximately 120 miles) to 130 tons in low earth orbit, with the additional task of delivering the Apollo spacecraft all the way to the Moon and back (nearly half a million miles) in a little more than one year’s time? You call in Superman, Wernher Von Braun, and assign the task to him.

One goal of this book is to help Christians discern when they are being propagandized. When Satan and his human disciples intend to pull off an extraordinary deception, they begin by laying the groundwork for their illusion so it will not seem so incredible when it is revealed. Prior to the Apollo Space Program, magazines, science fiction books, television shows, and movies began regaling the public with stories of men exploring space via rockets. Werhner Von Braun’s book Conquest of the Moon was merely one of a great many media publications which began to seed into the thoughts of mankind the idea that men could reach beyond their own planet to the heavens beyond, extending their dominion over the creation.

Conquest of the Moon arose from a series of lengthy articles in the very popular Collier’s magazine. Collier’s was the fourth most popular magazine in the 1940s and 1950s. It lagged behind only LifeLook, and The Saturday Evening Post. In 1952, Collier’s organized a symposium of the world’s leading experts in space exploration. Among them were Wernher von Braun, then technical director of the Army Ordinance Guided Missile Development Group; Fred L. Whipple, chairman of astronomy at Harvard University; Joseph Kaplan, professor of physics at UCLA; Heinz Haber, of the US. Air Force Department of Space Medicine; and Willy Ley, an authority on space travel and rocketry. The symposium published a series of articles which appeared in Collier’s beginning in March of 1952 and running through April 1954. These articles served as the source for three books, all of which were highly illustrated: Across the Space Frontier (1952), Conquest of the Moon (1953), and The Exploration of Mars (1956).

These books in turn spawned many additional publications.

Project Mars by Willy Ley and Wernher Von Braun

From the 1950s onward, space flight became a popular subject in the media. Through a constant barrage of books and articles, movies and television shows, the public was being prepared to accept the idea of man being able to travel to other celestial bodies.

At the same time, Wernher Von Braun was being built up to mythological proportions. He was the German master of rocketry who would help America, and all of mankind, realize their dreams of reaching to the stars. Walt Disney, no stranger to creating world’s of fantasy, was called upon to help prepare the public to accept a future vision of manned space travel. Disney produced a number of special broadcasts on the subject of space exploration. Wernher Von Braun was further immortalized through these broadcasts, his reputation growing to astronomical proportions.

Trip Around the Moon - 1955

Disney produced many more programs on the subject of Moon exploration and space travel. Isn’t it interesting that the company that made a global icon of a talking mouse would also play a key role in selling the idea of Moon exploration to mankind?

I do not doubt that Satan was mocking the folly of man by tying the two together. For those not yet aware, Walt Disney had deep associations with Freemasonry. Answering the question of whether Walt Disney was a Freemason, a website by Freemasons offers the following explanation.

Now part of what may have cause(sic) the confusion is that during the 1950s, Disneyland sponsored various clubs for its employees, including a knitting club, a shooting club, a skiing club, bowling and softball teams. There was also a Masonic club at Disney, presumably for the employees who were Freemasons.

However, even though Disney wasn't a Freemason, he did belong to Demolay as a boy, which is a fraternal organization sponsored by Masonry. While many Demolay do go on to become Freemasons, Walt Disney never joined a Masonic Lodge. Walt Disney was kind of a big deal in Demolay--he was only the 107th member to join the organization, and a member of the Mother Chapter. He was later inducted into Demolay's Legion of Honor, and the Hall of Fame. He was very fond of the Demolay organization, and spoke out favorably about it often. In fact, he made his creation, Mickey Mouse, a member of Demolay!

DeMolay is a Masonic organization for children named in honor of Jacques De Molay, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, the paternal organization to which Freemasonry traces its roots. Jacques De Molay was burned at the stake in the year 1314, having been accused of numerous profane and obscene crimes. The Knight’s Templars were accused of many sordid acts, including worshiping Baphomet and indulging in homosexuality, pedophilia, and other forms of sexual debauchery. When one examines how the Walt Disney company perverts and sexually corrupts the lives of youth today, it is quite believable that the spirit of De Molay permeates this organization.

Others have speculated that Walt Disney was secretly a 33rd degree Freemason. This conclusion is supported by the secret club at Disneyland in California called Club 33.

Club 33 is a private club located in the heart of the New Orleans Square section of Disneyland. Originally maintained as a secret feature of the theme park, the entrance of the club was formerly located next to the Blue Bayou Restaurant at "33 Royal Street" with the entrance recognizable by an ornate address plate with the number 33 engraved on it.

Although I believe it was Stanley Kubrick who was given the job of directing the faked Apollo Moon landings, Walt Disney had an equally important role as he prepared the world to accept the fantasy of man traveling to other heavenly bodies to establish his dominion. Walt Disney, along with many others, did what Edward Bernays stated could be accomplished through the skilled use of propaganda. They succeeded in “puff(ing) up a nobody into a great man.” They built the myth of Wernher Von Braun to such an extent that people believed NASA when they said this German engineer had taken a failed rocket and turned it into the most capable rocket in human history.

Von Braun and crew would perfect in a few months “the biggest, most powerful, and most reliable rocket the world had ever seen - and has not seen since.” According to NASA, the Saturn V which had been consistently unstable in the hands of Rocketdyne’s engineers, would have all of its issues resolved in short order under the guidance of their German wunderkind. Not having achieved a single successful launch in the previous five years, it would prove flawless once NASA took control of the rocket’s development. The Saturn V would literally go from zero to hero. And with a perfect track record as the world’s mightiest and most reliable heavy lift rocket, NASA would promptly retire the Saturn V after the Apollo Moon missions, and then spend nearly ten years and billions of dollars developing an entirely new rocket system to be used with the Space Shuttle. The new rocket system would be less powerful, less reliable, and limit NASA to lifting payloads no greater than 50,000 pounds into space for the next forty years.

Only now, nearly fifty years later, does NASA have on the drawing board a new heavy lift rocket that will meet or exceed the capacity of the Saturn V. The Space Launch System (SLS) calls for a new rocket to be ready by 2018 which will be capable of lifting 70 tons into low earth orbit. That is little more than half of the Saturn V’s 130 ton capacity, but the SLS will be scaled up over time until it can lift 130 tons into space.

Why, with all the tremendous advances in computer processing, space age materials, and new rocket fuels, has it taken NASA 50 years to duplicate what they accomplished repeatedly with the Saturn V in the years 1968-1972? The obvious answer is that the Saturn V rocket did not in reality have the fabled capacity which NASA claims. This also would explain why the Saturn V was scuttled after the Moon missions and all its manufacturing components ordered destroyed by Congress.

If NASA intended to fake the Moon missions, they would not need a rocket with the advertised capacity of the Saturn V. The complete Apollo spacecraft was never seen by the public atop the Saturn V rocket. All the public saw was the outside of the protective cover. Assembly of the rocket and payload components occurred out of sight in a closed hangar, and was then rolled out fully assembled to the launch pad.

The only part of the Apollo Spacecraft visible to the public on network television as the rocket sat on the launch pad was the Command Module. This gum drop shaped module at the very top of the rocket is what the public saw the astronauts entering as they were strapped into their seats. Of the three modules, which also included the Service Module and the Lunar Module, the Command Module was the lightest of the three. It weighed only 11,000 pounds. NASA could easily have left the other modules out. They could have then used a far less powerful first stage for the Saturn V rocket than what would be required for an actual Moon mission.

Rocketdyne had met only with failure when attempting to combust the immense volume of fuel required for the five massive F1 engines of the Saturn V. For comparison, the Saturn 1B rocket used a cluster of 8 H1 engines, each of which provided 200,000 pounds of thrust. The Saturn V design called for a cluster of 5 F1 engines each of which provided 1,500,000 pounds of thrust. The vast volume of fuel which had to be combusted to provide this much thrust rendered the F1 unstable. The heat and vibration led to catastrophic failures.

Wernher Von Braun might have throttled down the rocket, improving its stability. It would be improbable that the public watching the launch could tell the difference between a rocket engine producing 500,000, or 750,000 pounds of thrust from one producing 1,500,000 pounds of thrust. With the weight removed from the top of the rocket, and the payload greatly reduced, this far less capable rocket could still make a good showing as it disappeared into the sky and out of the public’s sight.

Of the three modules, only the Command Module returned to Earth. The public would never see the Lunar Module or Service Module again. The base of the Lunar Module would be left on the Moon. The top portion of the Lunar Module would be discarded in lunar orbit, and the Service Module would be jettisoned to burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere just prior to the Command Module making re-entry. Consequently, there would be no way to examine these components to verify whether they had ever gone into space or to the Moon. The citizens of America and the world only saw these modules through the easily exploited medium of television.

NASA did not even need to send the astronauts into space. It is quite doubtful that if they had gone to the Moon that they could survive re-entry to the Earth’s atmosphere due to the intense heat generated. When satellites fall back to Earth, they inevitably burn up before they reach the ground. The Space Shuttle Columbia incinerated during re-entry when a single heat shield tile broke off. The intense heat of re-entry penetrated this vulnerable area, causing the hull to breach and the shuttle to disintegrate. The Apollo Command Modules would have experienced far greater temperatures than the Space Shuttles because of their greatly increased speed of reentry. The Apollo Command Modules would have hit the Earth’s upper atmosphere at a speed of 24,000 mph. The Space Shuttle’s reentry speed was about 17,500 mph.

It is reported that the temperature of the Command Module on reentry reached 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Space Shuttle, by contrast, heated to 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

In faking the Moon missions, NASA need only show the astronauts entering into the Command Module atop the Saturn V. Due to design changes mandated by the Apollo 1 disaster, the astronauts could open the hatch on the Command Module from the inside and exit freely. I find it quite plausible to believe this is what actually occurred. All of the Apollo Mission sequences would already have been filmed so they could be broadcast to the world as if they were a live mission. The Saturn V rocket’s ascent was never straight up. It always went into a low earth orbit before heading to the Moon. This is why viewers always observe the rocket arcing out over the ocean. NASA could have sent the rocket out of sight to some remote area of the South Atlantic and ditched it into the ocean. All they would need to do afterwards, is roll their pre-recorded film as if it was a live mission, and at the time for the mission’s end, they could drop an Apollo Command Module from a high flying cargo plane in the vicinity of the splash down area, and no one would be the wiser. Any terrestrial observers would see the Command Module floating serenely to the Earth as it was slowed by three immense parachutes.

If such a scenario sounds far-fetched, consider that NASA tested all of the Command Modules by dropping them out of the backs of airplanes. There is video available of them doing this with the Mercuy, Gemini, Apollo, and now the new Orion capsules.

Apollo Command Module Parachute Drop Test

(Note: You can go to the 5:10 mark in the video to see the airplane portion of the drop test.)

Orion Command Module Parachute Drop Test

None of the Apollo Mission capsules upon their return from the Moon, were observed hurtling through sky prior to the moment their parachutes deployed, which was typically at an altitude of more than 20,000 feet for the drogue chutes, and 10,000 feet for their main chutes. Although the U.S. government had Navy vessels waiting to recover the Command Modules and astronauts, the splashdown into the ocean invariably occurred either at night, during cloudy weather, or miles away from the location of the rescue vessels. As if they were playing it safe, all three of the Apollo Missions which generated the greatest interest by the public, and received the maximum amount of television coverage, experienced reentry at night. Apollo 8, which was the first Mission to leave lower earth orbit and circle the Moon, Apollo 11 which was the first landing on the Moon, and Apollo 13, whose drama captivated the world, all experienced splashdown in the dark of night when it would have been impossible to observe the capsules being dropped out of the back of a high flying cargo airplane.

The world knows Wernher Von Braun as a rocket scientist. It is not as well known that he knew a few things about faking a rocket mission to the Moon. At the age of 19, Wernher Von Braun began working as an assistant to an older and more accomplished German rocket scientist, Hermann Oberth. Just two years prior to this association, Hermann Oberth served as a consultant to German film director Fritz Lang on his famous movie Frau im Mond (Woman in the Moon), released in 1929.

Oberth was employed by Fritz Lang to advise him on how to make a rocket mission to the moon appear realistic. Fritz Lang wanted to portray the steps required to get men to the Moon in a credible fashion. Space agencies from around the world have duplicated key aspects of Lang’s movie which add drama to the presentation of rocket launches. One such detail is the dramatic roll-out of the massive rocket to the launch pad followed by the countdown sequence.

Fritz Lang Rocket Roll Out

America, ever the dramatic ones, have copied the example of rocket roll-outs first seen in Frau im Mond. They assemble everything in a closed hangar and then slowly roll out the vertical rocket to its launching pad.

Roll Out of NASA’s Saturn V

The Russians have typically followed what they deem to be a more reasonable model. Moving a fully assembled rocket in an upright position where it is subject to high winds and instability is deemed an impractical approach to rocket launches by the Russians. Consequently, they roll their rockets out horizontally where they are far more stable and less subject to wind loads. The Russians only stand the rockets upright once they reach the launch pad.

Roll Out of Russian R7 Rocket and Soyuz Capsule

Fritz Lang also popularized the dramatic feature of the launch countdown. This moment of high drama has been a centerpiece to every important launch in America. Wernher Von Braun learned from the best. What he could not make, he could fake.

America is renowned for its theatrical productions, whether they be Broadway, Hollywood, or NASA. The United States is the land of high drama. NASA has taken this drama to new heights. Millions of people from around the world flock to Florida annually to visit such attractions as Disneyworld, Universal Studios Theme Park, and the Space Coast encompassing Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Base. It is all a world of illusion, but it makes for great entertainment. The show must go on!

Lunacy & The Age of Deception - Chapter 16

Postcards From the Moon

The dark, occult, Satanic associations of NASA would be a very hard image to sell to Americans of the late 1960s and early 1970s. According to the polling company Gallup, in the year 1965, 69% of Americans identified themselves as Protestant Christians, while an additional 24% identified as Catholic Christians. That is a total of 93% of Americans, the highest percentage to self-identify as Christians since Gallup began conducting data on this subject in 1948. The U.S. government, well aware of the Christian leanings of the populace, made sure to hide the anti-Christian associations of NASA from the public.

As I look back over the history of the Apollo Space Program, it becomes apparent that NASA has made it a priority to make the Moon missions appear as attractive to Christians as possible. They have had great success in deceiving so many because they have manipulated the masses by appealing to their religious and patriotic biases. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Apollo 8 mission. Apollo 8 was the first space mission to take mankind beyond low earth orbit. It was the first mission to carry men to the vicinity of the Moon. It was the first space mission to carry men through the Van Allen Radiation Belts.

Prior to Apollo 8 man had never traveled even 1,000 miles from the Earth’s surface. Yet, NASA claims that, in an immense leap forward in human capability, Apollo 8, which launched on December 21, 1968, traveled 240,000 miles from the Earth to the Moon, orbited the Moon 10 times in a period of 20 hours, and then returned 240,000 miles to Earth. NASA knew their claims of having accomplished such an incredible feat would be met with great skepticism. They went to great lengths to mitigate critical examination of their claims. They sought to engage people emotionally, rather than rationally.

One way they accomplished this was to schedule the Apollo 8 mission for the precise time of year when people are most engaged emotionally in their lives, and the most prone to entertain fanciful traditions. The Apollo 8 crew reached lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, December 24th, 1968. As people from nations around the world were telling tales of Santa Claus and flying reindeer, decorating their homes with festive lights and savoring the smells of holiday cooking; as people were focused on giving and receiving gifts, feasting with family and friends, and enjoying the overall holiday cheer, NASA knew people would be predisposed to positive thoughts, thinking the best of all mankind.

NASA further played up the religious angle during this season when people recite the story of the birth of Christ and of angels announcing “Peace on Earth, good will to men.” The crew made a number of “live” broadcasts from their Lunar Orbiter. On their Christmas Eve broadcast each member of the Apollo 8 crew read a section from the first chapter of the book of Genesis.

Apollo 8 Crew: Frank Borman, Bill Anders, James Lovell

Bill Anders
“We are now approaching lunar sunrise, and for all the people back on Earth, the crew of Apollo 8 has a message that we would like to send to you.”

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, ‘Let there be light’: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.”

James Lovell 
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. And God said, ‘Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.’ And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.”

Frank Borman 
“And God said, ‘Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear’: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he seas: and God saw that it was good.”

Borman then ended by stating, “And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close with good night, good luck, a Merry Christmas and God bless all of you - all of you on the good Earth.”

This message pulled strongly upon the emotions of the listeners. It is difficult to remain objective in the face of such shrewd propaganda. People were being manipulated through the employment of a cunning PR campaign. The astronauts of Apollo 8 followed a script that made them appear as solid Christian citizens of the United States. They were America’s heroes winning the Cold War against the Soviet Union which was in the midst of a crackdown on Christianity and religious freedom. The cold, atheistic world of Soviet Communism was brought face to face with Christian America in the space race, and the Christians were triumphing.

At least, that is how things were made to appear. In truth, it was American Christians who were being duped by their own government. The true struggle was not with a foreign empire. The real conflict lay much closer to home. David McGowan, in his insightful, albeit irreverent, treatise on the faked Moon landings has written the following.

There is a tremendous reluctance among the American people to let go of the notion that we sent men to the Moon. There are a couple of reasons for that, one of them being that there is a romanticized notion that those were great years - years when one was proud to be an American. And in this day and age, people need that kind of romanticized nostalgia to cling to.

But that is not the main reason that people cling so tenaciously, often even angrily, to what is essentially the adult version of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. What primarily motivates them is fear. But it is not the lie itself that scares people; it is what that lie says about the world around us and how it really functions. For if NASA was able to pull off such an outrageous hoax before the entire world, and then keep that lie in place for four decades, what does that say about the control of the information we receive? What does that say about the media, and the scientific community, and the educational community, and all the other institutions we depend on to tell us the truth? What does that say about the very nature of the world we live in?

That is what scares... people and prevents them from even considering the possibility that they could have been so thoroughly duped. It’s not being lied to about the Moon landings that people have a problem with, it is the realization that comes with that revelation: if they could lie about that, they could lie about anything...

Apollo 8 Postcard - First Day of Issue

Apollo 8 was a feel-good mission for the American people. Everything seemed right with the world for a brief moment. In an hour when Madalyn Murray O’Hair had succeeded in banning Bible reading in public schools; in a year when Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King were both assassinated; as America was embroiled in the war in Viet Nam, there was finally something Americans, and especially American Christians, could take pride in.

The postcard above reveals that NASA was pushing all the right emotional buttons to manipulate the people. There are the three smiling astronauts. They wear the patch of the American flag proudly on their shoulders. Affixed to the postcard is the U.S. Postal Service’s official commemorative stamp depicting the Earth rising over the surface of the Moon with the words “In the beginning God...” in the very center. Patriotism and religion were both being invoked.

As Edward Bernays stated in his book Propaganda, “Trotter and Le Bon concluded that the group mind does not think in the strict sense of the word. In place of thoughts it has impulses, habits and emotions.” It was the impulses, habits and emotions of the group mind that NASA was appealing to. It is little wonder that so many Christian Americans today are emotionally invested in defending the illusion that America sent men to the Moon and back in the 1960s and early 1970s. As a group, the populace embraced what was being told to them. It is difficult for an individual to cast off the consensus belief of the group and test a matter rationally. The pressure of the group holds most people firmly to the group mindset.

Brothers and sisters, it is important to discern the great deception of the Apollo Moon missions, for the government and media continue to present to the public lies and illusions in order to manipulate them. Deception and Democracy are inseparable. The rich and powerful of this world will never be content to allow men to exercise self-rule. They will only permit them the illusion of self-rule. Consequently, deception must be the policy of the government and the media, both of which are under the control of a global elite.

NASA has never been a Christian organization. You can be certain they did not have the Apollo 8 astronauts read from Genesis because the leadership of NASA were devout Bible believers. No, this act was intended to manipulate the Christian public, to get them to throw their support behind the U.S. government’s funding of NASA. It was intended to evoke an emotional response to the Moon program, and to forestall the rational skepticism which would have exposed their deception.

NASA is not going to announce that past key members of the organization, like Jack Parsons, were Satanists. They know better than to publicize the fact that administrators are high level Freemasons. You will not find it mentioned in any of their public relations material that men such as Thomas Kelly, leader of the Apollo Lunar Module program, was a member of Cornell University’s Quill and Dagger secret society, the equivalent of Yale University’s Skull and Bones.

NASA qualifies as an occult organization. It is difficult to see the true nature of the organization for it is hidden, obscured, occulted, by a carefully manufactured public image. The public face of NASA is a lie, a deception, a fraud perpetrated upon an unsuspecting and naive populace.

Satan and his human servants never tire of using the same tried and true schemes. They work so well, why should they change? Christians are far too easily duped. Consider a more recent news story. Exploding out of nowhere into great prominence recently is the terrorist organization know as ISIS, ISIL, or Daesh. The mainstream and many lesser known media sources are hyping the story of ISIS being a dire threat to Christians. The public is regaled with horrific accounts of ISIS terrorist groups demanding that Christians convert to Islam, pay a tax, or be killed. Politicians and pundits cite these stories, informing the masses that America must intervene in the nations where ISIS operates, including Iraq and Syria, in order to protect Christians.

Since when has the mainstream media or the government had any sincere concern for the lives of Christians? These are the same people who characterize American Christians as terrorists, bigots, and haters for taking a stand against abortion and homosexuality. Remember, the media and the government are controlled by a cabal of global corporations who are pursuing their own narrow interests. They are servants of Satan. They care nothing for the suffering masses. Indeed, they are the true agents behind the atrocities being committed. When they are not committing atrocities, they are fabricating false accounts of atrocities. ISIS/ISIL/Daesh was created, trained, and funded by the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States.

If there are Christians being slaughtered, they are being killed with American weapons given to the hands of evil men who have been recruited, trained, and are being directed by agents of the American government. The government and media are acting in concert to manipulate Christians today in the same way they did during the Apollo missions. Desiring to overthrow the sovereign governments of nations such as Iraq and Syria, they have manufactured a threat which will elicit the fear of Christians, manipulating them to call for government intervention, believing that the government will act as the savior of Christian lives and property. The true motives of the powers-that-be is to wrest control of the resources of nations, maintaining their global monopoly.

To cite another current example, consider the 2016 U.S. Presidential race. On the Republican side, Donald Trump is receiving massive amounts of media attention as a champion of the people, a defender of traditional morality, and an adversary of the Washington establishment elite. He is being billed as an “outsider,” someone who will defend the common man and protect American Christians against a tidal wave of Islamic refugees entering the country.

Many Christian leaders have rallied around Donald Trump. He spoke to a crowd of thousands at Liberty University and received the endorsement of the University’s founder, Jerry Falwell. Donald Trump also met with an assortment of Christian leaders back in October, 2015, including Dr. David Jeremiah (Southern Baptist), Paula White (Charismatic), Kenneth Copeland (Pentecostal), Jan Crouch (Trinity Broadcasting Network), and Robert Jeffress (Southern Baptist), among others. They prayed over “The Donald” and spoke blessings upon him.

The video above begins with Dr. David Jeremiah praying for Donald Trump stating, “he not only says what he believes, but is willing to put himself in jeopardy for what he believes, and will help us... spiritually.” Truly, there are none so blind as those who claim to be the servants of God (Isaiah 42:19). Even Willie Robertson, a professed Christian and reality star of the popular television program Duck Dynasty, has endorsed Donald Trump. Perhaps if he removed those dark shades obscuring his vision, he would be able to see that he is standing next to one of Satan’s own.

It is astonishing that anyone, much less a Christian in whom dwells the Holy Spirit, should believe that Donald Trump is a champion of Christianity, or of Christian values. Donald Trump is a vain, pompous, loud-mouthed, vulgar, godlessly immoral man. He has been married three times, and has been unfaithful to all of his wives. He has owned some of the largest casinos in America, businesses which promote gambling, prostitution, and all manner of sexual immorality.

Along with the casino business comes mob connections. A CNN news article relates the following:

Donald Trump and the Mob
Chris Frates, CNN Investigative Correspondent
Fri July 31, 2015

"The mob connections of Donald are extraordinarily extensive," New York investigative journalist Wayne Barrett told CNN in an interview.

Barrett, the author of the 1992 unauthorized biography "Trump: The Deals and the Downfall," wrote that Trump's life "intertwines with the underworld..."

To be sure, organized crime had ties to the New York and New Jersey construction industry in the 1980's and early 1990's, making contact between developers and mafia-controlled companies almost unavoidable at times.

"There was a certain amount of mob association during which the father and he were building, which was very difficult to avoid in the New York construction world," Barrett said, adding, "He went out of his way not to avoid them, but to increase them."

In a recent Federalist article, David Marcus writes that Trump bought the property that his Atlantic City casino Trump Plaza would one day occupy -- for twice market price -- from Salvatore Testa, a Philly mobster and son of one-time Philly mob boss Philip "Chicken Man" Testa. (Springsteen fans might recognize the elder Testa from the opening lines of the song, Atlantic City.)

In his book, Barrett writes that Testa and a partner, who together headed a Philly mafia hit-squad called the Young Executioners, bought the property for "a scant $195,000" in 1977. In 1982, Trump paid $1.1 million for it.

"The $220 per square foot that Trump paid for the Testa property was the second most expensive purchase he made on the block, even though it was one of the first parcels he bought," Barrett wrote.

The casino was built with the help of two construction companies controlled by Philly mobsters Nicademo "Little Nicky" Scarfo and his nephew Phillip "Crazy Phil" Leonetti, according to, as Marcus notes, a New Jersey state commission's 1986 report on organized crime.

Trump also had a decade-long relationship with Scarfo's investment banker, according to Barrett's book.

In Manhattan, Trump used the mob-controlled concrete company S&A to build Trump Plaza condos. Anthony "Fat Tony" Salerno, head of the Genovese crime family, and Paul Castellano, the don of New York's Gambino family, controlled S&A, according to federal court records Barrett cited in his book.

Barrett noted that he built the Trump Tower out of concrete, instead of steel, at a time when the mafia controlled much the concrete industry.

"While dealing with the concrete cartel was inevitable for any developer in the period when Trump Tower was built, Donald took the relationship several steps further than he had to," Barrett wrote.

In a Philadelphia Inquirer article from the time the book was published, reporter David Cay Johnston summed up Barrrett's unauthorized biography, writing that it "asserts that throughout his adult life, Donald Trump has done business with major organized-crime figures and performed favors for their associates."

I am appalled that so many Christians are embracing this godless man who is a servant of Satan. I believe if the Devil himself were to pick up a Bible and promise he was going to defend the rights of Christians, that a majority of Christians would vote for him. The apostle Paul admonished the body of Christ with the following words.

I Timothy 5:22
Do not lay hands upon anyone too hastily and thus share responsibility for the sins of others; keep yourself free from sin.

The act of laying hands on someone was a sign of endorsement. Many Christians are endorsing Donald Trump today. Before the eyes of God they are sharers in Trump’s sins.

Donald Trump - Chameleon

II Corinthians 11:13-15
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

Brothers and sisters, if believers today are failing to exercise the bare minimum amount of discernment to recognize that this business mogul from Sin City, USA is a worker of evil and not a worker of righteousness, what deception will they not fall for? Perhaps they might believe that ISIS is a spontaneous uprising of radical Muslims who represent a threat to American Christians. Perhaps they might even believe that 47 years ago the American government landed men on the Moon and then returned them safely back to Earth.

Let me repeat that the goal of this book is NOT primarily to demonstrate that the Moon landings were faked. Rather, it is to demonstrate the pervasiveness of deception in the world in which we live. Lies are everywhere around us. Some of the lies are extraordinary in their scope and impact, yet they have been embraced as eagerly by Christians as they have been by the unregenerate. Why is this so? It is because Christians are failing to walk as spiritual men and women. Having set their minds on earthly pursuits they are unable to contend with spiritual forces of wickedness in high places. They are vulnerable to every lie and illusion of the enemies of Christ.

Who do you think approved the reading of this Bible passage during the Apollo 8 mission? Who scheduled it to be read during primetime, Christmas Eve, preempting regularly scheduled television programming? (Perhaps there is another reason television broadcasts are called “programming.”) This was not a spontaneous act of the three astronauts. They did not simply happen to have a Bible on board their spaceship. It was a scripted event.

Perhaps it was Edwin Webb, the Administrator of NASA from 1961-1968, who was a Masonic member of University Lodge No. 408 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina who suggested this Bible reading. Or perhaps it was Kenneth S. Kleinknecht, manager of the Apollo Command and Services Modules, who was a member of Fairview Lodge No. 699 in Fairview, Ohio. Maybe it was Thomas Kelly, leader of the Apollo Lunar Module program, who was a member of Cornell University’s Quill and Dagger secret society. It may even have been President Lyndon B. Johnson, for whom NASA’s Johnson Space Center is named. He too was a Freemason, initiated on October 30, 1937, in Johnson City Lodge No. 561 in Johnson City, Texas. What is certain is that, as the actor stated in the movie Interstellar, “it was a brilliant piece of propaganda.”

I know some elements of this chapter have appeared previously. I thought they were worth repeating. David McGowan, in his book Wagging the Moondoggie, presented a salient point for consideration. “if NASA was able to pull off such an outrageous hoax before the entire world, and then keep that lie in place for four decades, what does that say about the control of the information we receive? What does that say about the media, and the scientific community, and the educational community, and all the other institutions we depend on to tell us the truth? What does that say about the very nature of the world we live in?

Let us answer the question, removing the “if.” Since NASA did pull off such an outrageous hoax before the entire world, the Scriptures are confirmed, for they tell us, “The whole world lies in the power of the evil one” (I John 5:19). The evil one is further described as “the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world” (Revelation 12:9). The lies of Satan have permeated the media. They have infiltrated the scientific community. They have embedded themselves within the educational community. They are everywhere, in all the institutions we depend upon to tell us truth. Those who are wise will walk with their eyes open, testing everything.

Lunacy & The Age of Deception - Chapter 15


Note: This is a somewhat lengthy post, but it contains information critical to this series of writings. I encourage readers to be patient and read it to the end.

Scene from The Shining (Click on image to view larger)

Once my eyes were opened to perceive the occult message Stanley Kubrick wove into the fabric of The Shining it became impossible to look at the film and its images without seeing that his role in faking the Apollo lunar missions was in actuality the main theme of the movie. The image above exemplifies a magnificently crafted form of communication using images rather than words. This one photo encapsulates the Apollo space program in a single snapshot.

The setting is The Overlook Hotel, representing the United States which is possessed of a malevolent spirit, a nation built upon the graves of slaughtered Native Americans. Outside it is winter time with snow piled on the ground, signifying that this is the time of the Cold War. On the wall to the right above the fireplace we see the images of the rockets. Beneath the rockets there is a fire burning brightly even as a rocket would have a fiery exhaust below it. Just in front of the fireplace on the floor is a large bearskin rug signifying that the Russian bear has been flattened, trodden under foot by the triumph of America’s space program.

The character Jack Torrance sits at a German typewriter manufactured by Adler, the Nazi and/or American eagle, where he works on a screenplay. Over and over he is writing “A-11 work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” In this we are shown Stanley Kubrick’s role in crafting the audio-visual presentation for the Apollo moon missions which would be aired to a global public. Flying proudly from the wall at the back of the room is the American flag, a prop which was to become a centerpiece of the Apollo missions as it was carried to the Moon and repeatedly planted in the lunar soil.

Even the title of the movie, The Shining, has significance. In one sense the Apollo moon missions were crafted to be viewed as a shining example of America’s technological prowess. Additionally, one of the ancient terms used to refer to the Sun god Apollo was “the shining one.” Richard Leviton, in his book The Geomantic Year writes the following.

Bel, the deity of Beltaine, was also called Belenus, the Continental Celtic god whose name meant “The Bright or Shining One.” The Romans equated Belenus with the Greek Phoebus Apollo known similarly as the Shining One or the Sun-god - a solar divinity radiant with flames and fires. Thus the fires of Beltaine were his.

Beltaine is commonly celebrated on May 1st. In the movie The Shining Jack Torrance discusses his contract with the hotel manager Stuart Ullman. It is disclosed that Jack’s service ends on May 1st, the very date that the fires of Beltaine/Apollo are lit. In other words, once the Apollo 11 mission has ascended into the heavens in fiery glory and safely returned to Earth, Stanley Kubrick’s service as crafter and caretaker of America’s secrets would no longer be needed.

Having studied the film 2001, A Space Odyssey, and observing in it a skillfully crafted retelling of the age old Luciferian idolatry which has manifested through the centuries through many names and in various disguises, it became evident that Kubrick is well acquainted with occult and pagan beliefs. So too have key figures within NASA been acquainted with the ancient Luciferian doctrines. Those who were high level Freemasons would have been instructed in the esoteric beliefs of the organization, beliefs which are hidden from members of lower degrees. Those who have been considered the sages of Freemasonry, men like Albert Pike (Morals and Dogma), Albert Mackey (The Symbolism of Freemasonry), and Manly Hall (The Secret Teachings of All Ages) have disclosed the ancient occult beliefs which Satan has preserved to this present hour.

It seems fitting, like the ancients who labored to construct the Tower of Babel, a monument of men which would enable them to ascend to the heavens, that NASA should be possessed of the same anti-Christ spirit. That NASA is an occult organization is revealed in the names it has so often affixed to its works: Apollo, Gemini, Mercury, Saturn, Orion, ISiS, Aquarius, Phoenix, and many others.

Before there was NASA there was a federally funded organization named JPL, or the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. One of the initial founders of JPL was Jack Parsons. Insiders have often referred to JPL as Jack Parsons Laboratory. JPL was formed in the mid 1930s under a different name as two budding rocket enthusiasts consulted with academics at California Institute of Technology. The group adopted the name Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 1943 in the midst of America’s involvement in World War II. The government funded their research and contracted with them for military hardware. Eventually JPL was folded into NASA when the space agency was established by Congress in the year 1958.

Examining the roots from which NASA sprang forth can be revealing. It is an exploration into darkness and great evil. Few would imagine how two things as seemingly disparate as rocket science and Satanic worship could be blended together at the birth of the American space program.

Jack Whiteside Parsons is unknown to many, an enigma to others, and a cult icon to a remnant. He was born Marvel Whiteside Parsons on October 2, 1914, named after his father Marvel H. Parsons. At home he was called John, or Jack. Jack Parson’s mother filed for divorce when her son was 5 months old, having discovered that her husband was visiting prostitutes. The spirit of sexual immorality would later surface in Jack’s own life. His mother’s parents moved to California to be with their daughter, who was now a single mother. They were wealthy and bought a mansion on Orange Grove Avenue in Pasadena, a street which was locally known as “Millionaire’s Mile.”

From his youth Jack Parsons exhibited a deep interest in science fiction, rocketry, and the occult. He was befriended by Edward Forman, an older boy from a working class family who defended Jack from bullies at school. In 1928, at the age of 14, Jack, along with Edward, began making rockets using gunpowder as a propellant, and launching them from the Parsons’ property, as well as in the nearby Arroyo Seco canyon. Around the same time, Jack developed an interest in the occult. He performed an invocation, inviting the devil into his bedroom, but being frightened that he might have succeeded, he ceased his occult activities for a time.

Jack did not do well in the public schools, so his mother enrolled him in  a private boarding school in San Diego - the Brown Military Academy for Boys. He wasted little time in getting expelled from the school by blowing up the toilets. In 1931, at the age of 17, Jack was enrolled in the University School, a private school with an unconventional approach to learning, where he finally began to flourish. He began working weekends and holidays at the Hercules Powder Company where he furthered his knowledge of chemicals and explosives. Jack continued to pursue his interest in rockets with Edward Forman, and the two corresponded with a number of famous rocket pioneers including Robert Goddard and Wernher Von Braun. Parsons spoke for hours with Wernher Von Braun on the telephone about their various experiments with rockets.

In 1934 Parsons and Forman attended some lectures at Caltech, hoping to gain access to the institution’s state of the art facilities and equipment. They made contact with a doctoral student, Frank Malina, who had the technical training the other two lacked. Together, these three gained approval to form a rocket research group at the school. It was called GALCIT, and served as the nucleus for what would eventually become JPL. The three men worked well together, with Parsons acting as the chemist, Forman the machinist, and Malina as theoretician. Parsons lacked the educational training and discipline of a typical rocket scientist, but this was offset by his productive imagination and intuitive sense of what combinations of chemicals and materials would work together.

By the late 1930s the three men were making progress developing a liquid fueled rocket engine and were joined by a couple more team members. They were allowed for a time to conduct experiments at the Caltech campus, but after a number of explosions which caused damage to buildings, they were banned from further testing there. They relocated their work site to the Arroyo Seco canyon under rather primitive conditions. Due to their penchant for unintentionally blowing things up, they gained the moniker “the suicide squad.” Jack Parsons, nevertheless, obtained a reputation as an expert in explosives and was called on to testify in a court case where explosives were used in an attempted murder.

Parsons... appeared as an expert explosives witness in the trial of Captain Earl Kynette, the head of police intelligence in Los Angeles who was accused of conspiring to set a car bomb in the attempted murder of private investigator Harry Raymond, a former LAPD detective who was fired after challenging corruption in the force. When Kynette was convicted largely on Parsons' testimony, which included his forensic reconstruction of the car bomb and its explosion, his identity as an expert scientist in the public eye was established despite his lack of a university education.

Parsons and his team struggled along until they received a contract with the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Army Air Corps Research to develop a Jet Assisted Take Off (JATO) system to allow military planes to take off from short air strips. By late 1944, the military was placing orders for 20,000 units per month.

The First Jet Assisted Take Off

Due to rockets having a reputation as being something from science fiction, and being viewed as fanciful play toys of dreamers by many academics and professionals of the day, the group avoided using the word “rocket” in their projects. Technically, this was a “rocket assisted take-off,” but the word jet was considered less controversial. It was this stigma against the word “rocket” that influenced the group’s decision to call themselves the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. There was, however, a growing public interest in rockets. This was demonstrated when the August 1940 cover of the magazine Popular Mechanics featured an image of a rocket and an inside story of the rocket development work of Jack Parsons and Edward Forman.

Popular Mechanics, August 1940

Although not a universally well known individual, Jack Parsons was popular among certain groups such as science fiction fans and rocket buffs. It has been suggested that Marvel Comics modeled the character of Howard Stark, an early 20th century inventor, engineer, and military contractor, after Jack Parsons. In the recent Marvel television series Agent Carter, Howard Stark is played by Dominic Cooper. The resemblance to Jack Parsons is striking.

The character Howard Stark may be better known as the father of Tony Stark who is Iron Man. Since Jack Parsons was a rocket developer, and Iron Man flies around in a rocket powered suit, the association between Howard Stark and Jack Parsons is understandable. Added to the speculation is the fact that Jack Parsons’ first name is Marvel, and Marvel Comics owns these characters.

Jack Parsons would make some breakthroughs in rocket technology. Some of the technology would even end up in NASA’s Space Shuttles. One particular breakthrough by Parsons has struck me as significant, having a relationship to the history of ancient Babel as recorded in the Scriptures. Parsons believed solid fuel rockets had many benefits over liquid fuel, but solid fuel rockets had a reputation for being volatile and would explode spontaneously when stored for any length of time. Parsons had an epiphany while observing workers spreading molten asphalt on a roof to be used to secure tiles in place.

Frank Malina, one of the original members of the JPL group, years later recounted in a speech that Parsons immediately saw the potential of using asphalt as a binding agent for the volatile chemicals in a solid rocket motor. The new fuel Parsons developed was known as GALCIT-53. It was markedly less volatile than earlier solid rocket fuels while also providing 427% more power than its predecessor, GALCIT-27. In the book The Occult World of Jack Parsons, a biography written by John Carter (a pseudonym), the author relates that this development “changed the future of rocket technology.” A Wikipedia entry on Parsons includes additional information.

...the thermoplastic asphalt casting - durable in all climates - allowing for mass-production and indefinite storage of the Group's invention and transforming solid-fuel agents into a safe and viable form of rocket propulsion. Plasticized variants of Parsons' solid-fuel design - invented by JPL's Charles Bartley - were later used by NASA in Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Boosters and by the Strategic Air Command in Polaris, Poseidon and Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missiles.

What struck me as significant is that tar was required to hold the bricks together to construct the Tower of Babel, and it requires molten asphalt, a tar-like substance, to create the solid fuel rockets used to send men and warheads into the heavens. The first mention of Babel/Babylon in the Bible tells us that the city was founded by Nimrod. Later we are given this further information.

Genesis 11:1-9
Now the whole earth used the same language and the same words. And it came about as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they used brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar. And they said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name; lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” And Yahweh came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And Yahweh said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them. Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.” So Yahweh scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there Yahweh confused the language of the whole earth; and from there Yahweh scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth.

Babel/Babylon represents the pride of man and his attempts to reach into the heavens through means of the things he builds. I have found it interesting that the Genesis account mentions the role of tar being used as a binder for what the workers were constructing. The words of Solomon are true. He wrote:

Ecclesiastes 1:9
That which has been is that which will be, and that which has been done is that which will be done. So, there is nothing new under the sun.

History continues to repeat, and man commits the same transgressions over and over again. Tar  played a critical role in the construction of the Tower of Babel, and it would subsequently play a central role in man’s attempts to ascend into the heavens via rockets. Yet, even as Yahweh stymied man’s efforts to ascend into the heavens 4,000 years ago at Babel, He has thwarted their efforts to traverse beyond their own planet through the use of rockets and spaceships. In fact, JPL was instrumental in discovering the barrier Yahweh has placed in man’s way, preventing him from conquering the heavens. This barrier is space radiation.

In 1958 Explorer 1, the United States’ first satellite, was launched atop a JPL Juno rocket, which was itself a modified Jupiter rocket. Juno is the name of a Roman goddess, and queen of the gods. The name for the rocket was proposed by William Pickering, head of JPL from 1954 to 1976. William Pickering, incidentally is Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire and a Member of The Order of New Zealand. The organizations awarding these honors have direct ties to Freemasonry.

Pickering, Van Allen, and Von Braun Holding a Model of Explorer I

James Van Allen was a space scientist. He oversaw the design of Explorer 1’s equipment to test for radiation in space. He is credited with discovering intense bands of radiation which encompass the Earth. Radiation is trapped in space by the Earth’s magnetic field. This magnetic field protects the Earth from a lethal bombardment of highly energetic electrons and other polarized particles, but also concentrates these particles in immense bands of radiation which act as a barrier, preventing humans from traveling through them to space beyond. This barrier, known as the Van Allen Radiation Belts (VARB) proved to be far more intense than scientists had suspected. The VARB begin approximately 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) above the surface of the Earth and extend to 37,000 miles (60,000 kilometers). The Moon is approximately 240,000 miles from Earth, requiring that anyone traveling to the Moon traverse the VARB on both their outbound and return journeys.

Aside from the Apollo Moon missions of 1969-1972, no man has ever claimed to have entered or passed through the VARB. The International Space Station orbits the Earth at an elevation of 249 miles, well below the beginning of the radiation belts. Similarly, the Russian space station Mir orbited the earth at an elevation between 184 miles (296 kilometers) and 262 miles (421 kilometers) above the Earth. This is referred to as “Low Earth Orbit.”

I acquired a copy of the March 1959 edition of Scientific American in which an article is found by James Van Allen, discussing the discovery of the radiation belts surrounding the Earth.

Our measurements show that the maximum radiation level as of 1958 is equivalent to between 10 and 100 roentgens per hour, depending on the still undetermined proportion of protons to electrons. Since a human being exposed for two days to even 10 roentgens would have only an even chance of survival, the radiation belts obviously present an obstacle to space flight... A "space station" must orbit below 400 miles or beyond 30,000 miles from the Earth. We are now planning a satellite flight that will test the efficacy of various methods of shielding.

The hazard to space-travelers may not end even when they have passed the terrestrial radiation belts. According to present knowledge the other planets of our solar system may have magnetic fields comparable to the earth's and thus may possess radiation belts of their own. The moon, however, probably has no belt, because its magnetic field appears to be feeble. Lunar probes should give us more definite information on this point before long.
[Source: Scientific American, March 1959, Radiation Belts Around the Earth, James A. Van Allen]

A Wikipedia article on the VARB has a section titled Implications for (Human) Space Travel.

Spacecraft traveling beyond low Earth orbit leave the protection of earth's geomagnetic field and transit the Van Allen belts. Beyond these, they face additional hazards from cosmic rays and solar flares...

Solar cells, integrated circuits, and sensors can be damaged by radiation. Geomagnetic storms occasionally damage electronic components on spacecraft. Miniaturization and digitization of electronics and logic circuits have made satellites more vulnerable to radiation, as the total electric charge in these circuits is now small enough so as to be comparable with the charge of incoming ions. Electronics on satellites must be hardened against radiation to operate reliably. The Hubble Space Telescope, among other satellites, often has its sensors turned off when passing through regions of intense radiation.

NASA has not until recent years attempted to perform a detailed mapping of the radiation levels of the VARB. The earlier Explorer and Pioneer missions were only able to obtain information from small slices of the VARB which they traversed. Thus, when NASA reportedly sent 9 manned missions to the Moon and back, each of which had to traverse the VARB twice, they did not know the actual radiation levels the men would face. This fact is made evident by a recent promotional video published by NASA.

In 2012 NASA launched two probes to study the VARB. Following is an excerpt from the overview provided by NASA of this mission.

Launched on August 30, 2012, the two Van Allen Probes spacecraft operate in the harsh conditions they are studying. While other satellites have the luxury of turning off or protecting themselves in the middle of intense space weather, the Van Allen Probes must continue to collect data, and therefore, (sic) been built to withstand the constant bombardment of particles and radiation they will experience in this intense area of space...

The Van Allen Probes will help scientists to understand this region and to better design spacecraft that can survive the rigors of space.

Hmmm... Why not just design spacecraft similar to the Apollo Command and Lunar Modules? NASA has been telling mankind for more than 40 years that the astronauts traveled through the VARB repeatedly, and with no negative consequences to human health or to the functioning of electronics. Added to this, the Apollo missions occurred during a period known as a “solar maximum” when the radiation from the Sun is at its peak.

NASA has contended since the Apollo missions that the astronauts were able to travel through the VARB without harm due to the brief amount of time they were traversing it. Such a statement contradicts the remarks in the video above on the Orion Program. Additionally, since the Apollo astronauts would have been outside of the protective barrier of Earth’s geomagnetic field which prevents high energy electrons and other charged particles from striking the Earth, they would have been exposed to this dangerous radiation during most of their mission time, including while on the surface of the Moon. Each of the Apollo missions lasted 8-12 days. That is a lot of time for men to be exposed to space radiation without the benefit of adequate shielding.

NASA has stated that Moon rocks can be identified in part by their radioactivity. Because the Moon lacks a strong magnetic field, and has no appreciable atmosphere, cosmic radiation bombards the surface of the Moon continually. This causes Moon rocks to become radioactive. I will repeat an excerpt taken from one of NASA’s websites that I cited previously in this writing.

Just as meteoroids constantly bombard the Moon so do cosmic rays, and they leave their fingerprints on Moon rocks, too. “There are isotopes in Moon rocks, isotopes we don't normally find on Earth, that were created by nuclear reactions with the highest-energy cosmic rays,” says McKay. Earth is spared from such radiation by our protective atmosphere and magnetosphere.

Even if scientists wanted to make something like a Moon rock by, say, bombarding an Earth rock with high energy atomic nuclei, they couldn't. Earth's most powerful particle accelerators can't energize particles to match the most potent cosmic rays, which are themselves accelerated in supernova blastwaves and in the violent cores of galaxies.

It stands to reason that if Moon rocks are being exposed to “the highest-energy cosmic rays,” then so too would be any man who is standing on the Lunar surface. In 1998, the Space Shuttle Discovery on mission number STS-95, ascended to a higher orbit than typical for Shuttle missions. Most Shuttle missions did not pass much beyond 200 miles elevation above the Earth’s surface. NASA lists STS-95's orbital elevation as 310 miles, but various reports state that it exceeded 350 miles. At that elevation the astronauts aboard the Shuttle Discovery reported seeing flashes of light with their eyes shut which they described as “shooting stars.” This phenomenon was caused by space radiation penetrating the shuttle’s shielding, their space suit shielding, passing through their skulls, and striking the retinas of their eyes. CNN reported on this event, stating the following:

The radiation belt surrounding Earth may be more dangerous for space-walking astronauts than previously believed. Scientists say the phenomena known as the Van Allen Belts can spawn killer electrons when the Earth’s magnetic field changes. These electrons that are being studied could have an important effect not only on satellites, which has happened in the past, but could also effect the astronauts by creating large doses of radiation that could influence their health. The electrons can penetrate through various materials, including spacesuits and can pass through, in fact, the walls of the space station and can create high charges deep inside of these objects.
[Source: What Happened on the Way to the Moon?]

Note that the Space Shuttle Discovery astronauts were still hundreds of miles away from the normal boundary of the Van Allen Belts. Yet at this distance they were able to experience radiation penetrating their bodies and causing flashes of light on the retinas of their closed eyes. During the early Explorer missions, radiation levels inside the VARB were so unexpectedly high that they saturated the measuring instruments causing them to fail. James Van Allen recounts the following in the Scientific American article.

By early February, working with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, we had converted this apparatus for use in the Explorer II satellite. The first attempt to get it into orbit failed. A second rocket placed Explorer III, carrying identical apparatus, in orbit on March 26. This satellite fully confirmed the anomalous results of Explorer 1. At altitudes of 200 to 300 miles the counting rate was low. When the satellite went out to 500 to 600 miles, the apparent rate ascended rapidly and then dropped almost to zero.

One day, as we were puzzling over the first tapes from Explorer III, McIlwain suggested the first plausible explanation for their peculiar readings. He had just been calibrating his rocket instruments, and called our attention to something that we all knew but had temporarily forgotten: A sufficiently high level of radiation can jam the counter and send the apparent counting rate to zero. We had discovered an enormously high level of radiation, not a lack of it. As Ernest Ray, a member of our group, inaccurately but graphically exclaimed: “Space is radioactive!”

Very little was mentioned to the public about the dangers of space radiation during the Apollo era. The spaceships NASA claims the astronauts used to traverse the VARB had walls constructed of two thin layers of aluminum. In more recent years information has been published revealing that aluminum is a poor choice for radiation shielding of spaceships. Not only does it not block enough of the harmful radiation, but this type of passive shielding is prone to producing secondary radiation. When a high-energy electron or proton smashes into the atoms of the aluminum shell, secondary reactions occur. In an article on NASA’s website discussing the benefits of using non-metallic material for shielding, specifically polyethylene, the material that trash bags are made from, the following information is shared.

Protecting astronauts from deep-space radiation is a major unsolved problem. Consider a manned mission to Mars: The round-trip could last as long as 30 months, and would require leaving the protective bubble of Earth's magnetic field. Some scientists believe that materials such as aluminum, which provide adequate shielding in Earth orbit or for short trips to the Moon, would be inadequate for the trip to Mars.

Barghouty is one of the skeptics: "Going to Mars now with an aluminum spaceship is undoable," he believes.

Polyethylene Spaceship

Plastic is an appealing alternative: Compared to aluminum, polyethylene is 50% better at shielding solar flares and 15% better for cosmic rays.

Cosmic rays crash into matter, producing secondary particles.

The advantage of plastic-like materials is that they produce far less "secondary radiation" than heavier materials like aluminum or lead. Secondary radiation comes from the shielding material itself. When particles of space radiation smash into atoms within the shield, they trigger tiny nuclear reactions. Those reactions produce a shower of nuclear byproducts - neutrons and other particles - that enter the spacecraft. It's a bit like trying to protect yourself from a flying bowling ball by erecting a wall of pins. You avoid the ball but get pelted by pins. "Secondaries" can be worse for astronauts' health than the original space radiation!

Ironically, heavier elements like lead, which people often assume to be the best radiation shielding, produce much more secondary radiation than lighter elements like carbon and hydrogen. That's why polyethylene makes good shielding: it is composed entirely of lightweight carbon and hydrogen atoms, which minimizes secondaries.

I hope you did not miss the opening sentence of this excerpt from NASA’s own website. “Protecting astronauts from deep-space radiation is a major unsolved problem.” Just how did the Apollo astronauts deal with all that radiation out in space? How did they cope with all of the secondary radiation caused by cosmic rays smashing into the aluminum hull of their spaceship? The article further stated, “"Secondaries" can be worse for astronauts' health than the original space radiation!

So the Apollo astronauts traversed the VARB twice, being exposed to radiation levels hundreds of times higher than a medical x-ray; they were surrounded by aluminum which would cause secondary nuclear reactions, showering them with energetic particles more dangerous than the cosmic rays themselves, and it was simply a non-issue during the Apollo Missions. There is much reason for an intelligent person to view the Apollo Missions with great skepticism and incredulity based on this one issue alone. Also, don’t expect NASA to be building any polyethylene spaceships to take men to Mars and beyond anytime soon. The article goes on to admit that any shielding material must also meet other criteria, such as those relating to heat resistance and flammability. Polyethylene is highly flammable and melts at moderate temperatures, so the material would require much development in order to become suitable for spaceships.

Even if they could produce a sufficiently strong, heat resistant, non-flammable form of polyethylene, NASA admits “Some ‘galactic cosmic rays are so energetic that no reasonable amount of shielding can stop them,’ cautions Frank Cucinotta, NASA's Chief Radiation Health Officer. ‘All materials have this problem, including polyethylene.’” To state the matter succinctly, there is no material known to man that can adequately shield him from highly energetic space radiation. This is why NASA is also exploring active shielding. If technologists can create an artificial magnetosphere around a space ship, they might be able to accomplish the same thing that Earth’s magnetosphere does so well - trapping and slowing down high energy radiation. NASA is currently experimenting with high-temperature superconducting magnets to create artificial magnetic shields.

All this time and money NASA is investing in overcoming the very serious space radiation problem only serves to reinforce the flaws in the Apollo Program narrative the government has been propagandizing the masses with for the past 4-5 decades. A trip to the Moon and back in an aluminum spacecraft is not survivable. The radiation exposure would kill all who attempt to traverse the VARB, and living outside the protection of Earth’s radiation shield is not viable. Yahweh designed the Earth to be man’s habitat. No other world is conducive to human life. The following Scripture passages reveal the divine limits established for man’s dominion.

Genesis 1:26, 28
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth...” And God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Acts 17:24-26
“The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; neither is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all life and breath and all things: and He made from one, every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation...

Even as Yahweh stymied man’s attempt to reach into the heavens at Babel, so too has He confounded man’s modern efforts to become rulers of the heavens. He has done so by making the environment of space outside of man’s native planet to be irremediably inhospitable to human life. This truth, however, will not prevent foolish men from attempting to defy the limits imposed by man’s Creator. Nor will it stop Satan from seeking to deceive men regarding what is possible for them to achieve. From the very first recorded words of Satan to man, asserting that man could become like God, Satan has been lying to humanity.

Let us return now to the life of Jack Parsons and observe how he embraced Satan as his master, and how his dream of using rockets to send men into the heavens was an extension of the Satanic vision imparted to him. At the time Jack Parsons was advancing the field of rocketry at JPL, he was also pursuing a very different interest. Jack married Helen Northrup in 1935. In 1939 the couple were invited by some acquaintances to attend the Church of Thelema in Hollywood. Thelema is a religious belief system established by Aleister Crowley, a Satanist who has often been described as “the wickedest man in the world.” Parsons was intrigued, already having some familiarity with Aleister Crowley. He and his wife began attending this church of Satan. Due to Jack’s devotion to Thelema’s principles and his evident intelligence, he was soon advancing among the hierarchy.

Parsons began performing magic rituals, especially sex magick, and the invocation of demons. Aleister Crowley led the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O; Order of Oriental Templars). Those familiar with Freemasonry may recognize the name “Templars” and know of their association with Masonic history. Originally, the O.T.O was intended to be modeled after European Freemasonry, but under Crowley’s leadership it was reorganized around the teachings of Thelema. The O.T.O. might be described as Freemasonry which has come out of the closet, openly disclosing their allegiance to Satan. In 1941, Parsons and his wife joined the Agape Lodge, a local chapter of Crowley’s O.T.O..

Parsons impressed the members and leadership of the O.T.O and he began communicating directly with Crowley who lived in England. Such was the extent of Parsons’ embrace of this Satanic organization that he was soon being considered as an eventual replacement for Crowley who was advancing in age. Aleister Crowley spoke openly of his favorable impression of Parsons and his prospects at taking over the position of Frater Superior (Father Superior) of the O.T.O..

Soon after joining the Agape Lodge, Crowley suggested that Jack take over leadership of the local group. The previous leader was persuaded to step aside under pretense of being promoted to the status of a god, and Jack became the leader of this Satanic Lodge. He promptly moved meetings to his mansion, a home he had inherited on “Millionaires’ Row” in Pasadena. The group practiced pan-sexual relationships, believing that sexual jealousy was unbefitting of advanced minds. The Crowleyan  motto for Thelema was “Do what thou wilt.” This edict was declared to be the sum of the Satanic law.

Parsons’ mansion and property on Orange Grove Avenue had been a laboratory for his rocketry experiments, but it morphed into a laboratory for every form of Satanic activity, including black magic. Parsons converted the rooms in his mansion into 19 apartments, and invited only the degenerates of society to come and take up residence there. Anyone with moral scruples was forbidden from moving onto the property. One resident named Alva Rogers stated in a 1962 article in an occultist magazine that in the ads Parsons posted for his apartments he specified “that only bohemians, artists, musicians, atheists, anarchists, or any other exotic types need to apply for rooms - any mundane soul would be unceremoniously rejected.” The reason was obvious, for Parsons and his associates were heavily into drunkenness, illegal drugs, all manner of sexual degeneracy, and Satanic worship.

The Agape Lodge soon came under investigation by both the Pasadena Police Department and the FBI. Both had received allegations of a "black magic cult" involved in sexual orgies; one complainant was a 16-year-old boy who claimed that he was raped by lodge members... Having been a long-term heavy-user of alcohol and marijuana, Parsons now habitually used cocaine, amphetamines, peyote, mescaline and opiates as well. He continued to have sexual relations with multiple women...

Parsons immoral behavior included having sexual relations with the fiancee of a young Caltech student he had persuaded to embrace Thelema. Parsons paid for the young woman to have an abortion, which ended his friendship with the young man. Jack’s use of all manner of illegal drugs was becoming well known. In the February 21, 1943 edition of the O.T.O. journal which the Agape Lodge published, Parsons published the following poem which he authored.

I height Don Quixote, I live on peyote,
marijuana, morphine and cocaine,
I never know sadness, but only a madness
that burns at the heart and the brain.
I see each charwoman, ecstatic, inhuman,
angelic, demonic, divine.
Each wagon a dragon, each beer mug a flagon
that brims with ambrosial wine

Parsons’ life had become one of tremendous dissipation. He had cast away self-control and moral restraint, and was living a life of manic licentiousness. By December of 1944, the Caltech linked employees of JPL forced Parsons out of the company, deeming his occult activities to be a disgrace, and his debauched lifestyle a reproach on the company. In the following years until his mysterious death in 1952 at the age of 37, Parsons would work in an array of jobs. For a time he was able to continue obtaining government contracts in the field of rocketry, but the FBI was hounding him and he eventually lost his security clearance due to his “subversive character” and his advocacy of “sexual perversion” in the O.T.O..

He would fall on hard times financially, eventually selling his mansion to a developer with the agreement that he could continue to live in the apartment above the garage. He made bootleg nitroglycerin to earn money, worked as a car mechanic, took employment as a manual laborer at a gas station, and for two years was a faculty member at the University of Southern California’s Department of Pharmacology. The only consistent thing during these latter years of his life was his continued involvement in Satanic practices.

Still involved in Thelema in 1945, and remaining in possession of his mansion, Jack Parsons continued his dark lifestyle. When his wife Helen, also a willing participant in their Satanic lifestyle, went out of town for a time, Jack began having sexual relations with his wife’s 17 year old sister Sara. When Helen returned Jack told her that he experienced a greater sexual attraction to her sister. Since jealousy was considered incorrect behavior for a Satanist, Helen sought solace elsewhere. She began a relationship with the former head of the Agape Lodge and they moved away while Jack supported them financially.

The relationship between Jack and Sara would not last. Around this time L. Ron Hubbard, science fiction writer and eventual founder of the Church of Scientology, took up residence at Jack’s mansion. Hubbard not only cheated Parsons in a business deal, but when he left he took Sara with him. A greater story of sordid debauchery and moral corruption could hardly be imagined. Yet things were to become even more bizarre.

Jack Parsons had studied Crowley’s writing titled Moon Child. He became fixated on bringing forth a moon child who was supposed to be an incarnation of the goddess Babalon.

Sigil of BABALON

In an essay titled Freedom, Jack Parsons wrote of BABALON.

She will come girt with the sword of freedom, and before her kings and priests will tremble and cities and empires will fall, and she will be called BABALON, the scarlet woman... And women will respond to her war cry, and throw off their shackles and chains, and men will respond to her challenge, forsaking the foolish ways and the little ways, and she will shine as the ruddy evening star in the bloody sunset of Gotterdamerung, will shine as a morning star when the night has passed, and a new dawn breaks over the garden of Pan.

If the name “Gotterdamerung” seems familiar to the reader, they may recall that I wrote about a movie by this name in association with the recent terrorist events in the city of Paris.

In order to bring forth a moon child into the world, Parsons would have to perform sex magick with a Scarlet Women. Parsons corresponded with Crowley on this matter and was informed he should seek a red haired, green eyed woman. Parsons began performing magic rites as an act of summoning a Scarlet Woman. Parsons described this magical operation he entered into as “Babalon Working.” L. Ron Hubbard participated in these Babalon Working rituals, serving in the role of an amanuensis, or scribe, who would observe and describe what he was observing. Much of the ritual was too perverse to describe in this writing. The last ritual of the initial stage of Babalon Working, where Parsons sought to summon a Scarlet Woman, took place in February 1946 in the Mojave Desert.

Parsons abruptly decided that his undertaking was complete. On returning to the Parsonage he discovered that a woman named Marjorie Cameron - an unemployed illustrator and former Navy WAVE - had come to visit. Believing her to be the "elemental" woman and manifestation of Babalon that he had invoked, in early March Parsons began performing sex magic rituals with Cameron, who acted as his "Scarlet Woman," while Hubbard continued to participate as the amanuensis.

Marjorie Cameron

Marjorie Cameron was a red haired, green eyed woman. Jack would eventually divorce Helen and marry Marjorie, instructing her in the teachings of Thelema and the workings of magic. Marjorie Cameron accepted the role of the Scarlet Woman in the sex magick rituals and would later be described as a magnificent witch. It is ever the practice of those allied with Satan to take those things which Yahweh detests and turn them into objects of worship and adoration. In the Holy Scriptures the scarlet woman is spoken of with condemnation.

Revelation 17:3-6
And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, and upon her forehead a name was written, a mystery, “BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Yahshua.

The rites that Jack Parsons and Marjorie Cameron performed were called BABALON Working. Their intent was to call forth “BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS.” It was inevitable that Parsons would adopt an attitude of hatred and enmity toward Christ and His church. Later on Parsons would take the “Oath of the AntiChrist.” During this oath Parsons claimed to be possessed of an entity named Belarion Armillus Al Dajjal, the Antichrist, “who am come to fulfill the law of the Beast 666.” Jack Parsons viewed this oath as the completion of the Babalon Working.

It is little wonder that numerous books and articles have focused on this man whose life was one of such extremes.

The cover of the magazine above shows Jack Parsons with the Sigil of Satan on his chest. He is embraced by a Scarlet Woman. Rockets are seen flying through the heavens behind him. The title article is “ROCKET MAN. The Extraordinary Story of Jack Parsons: Playboy, Anti-Christ and Missile Messiah.”

If you have been patient enough to read this far, I will explain the relevance of sharing this information. As I mentioned, JPL was a precursor to NASA and is now an integral of NASA. Jack Parsons was the leading founder of JPL. Beginnings are significant. JPL and NASA have been peculiarly staffed in leading positions by men who were former Nazis (Nazism also has deep ties to occultism), Freemasons, members of secretive orders, and Satanists.

I have previously mentioned the association between Parsons solid fuel rocket breakthrough, tar, and the construction of the Tower of Babel. There appears to have been a fallen angelic being guiding Parsons, an assumption easily sustained in light of his involvement with Satanic practices, including the invoking of demons and spiritual powers of wickedness in high places. No doubt the inspiration for his Babalon Working came from a dark spiritual entity. In numerous writings I have taught that Satan is seeking to bring forth Babylon on the earth once again. Babylon is symbolic of the kingdom of Satan, a kingdom in which he is openly worshiped. Babylon is the opposite of Zion, the Kingdom of Christ Yahshua. Whereas Christ proclaimed a message of holiness, righteousness, and self-control, Satan encourages his disciples to live unrestrained lives, pursuing every evil desire and passion of the flesh.

One part of Babylon arising in the Earth is the formation of a single global government. Some have referred to this as a New World Order, but it is in fact a very ancient world system. The last place all men were united together under one leader was Babel, a city founded by Nimrod. We can observe on every hand that Satan is advancing his plan to bring forth political Babylon once more on this earth. Nations are abandoning their distinctiveness as migrants are flooding into their borders. Multinational political associations such as the European Union, the United Nations, and other organizations are leading to an abandonment of national sovereignty and an embrace of a unified global government.

Yet, political Babylon is merely one aspect of Satan’s kingdom. There is also a religious facet to Babylon. The keepers of this ancient religion have been known under many names throughout the centuries. In the Dark Ages one name was Alchemy. In more recent years it has been the Knight’s Templars, Freemasonry, and Kabbalah. The O.T.O. is one of the most open and authentic manifestations of religious Babylon in all its gross darkness.

Isaiah 60:2
“For behold, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness the peoples.”

Acts 26:18
To open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God.

Spiritual darkness is synonymous with the dominion of Satan, which is Babylon. If you deemed the description of Jack Parsons’ life to be exceedingly dark and evil, you are correct. I found it to be a burden to delve into the darkness of his life in order to present a summary of it. When men turn from the worship of Yahweh, their Creator, to the worship of idols and Satan, the result is that mankind is debased and degraded. He takes on the nature of a beast, driven by fleshly lusts, while Satan encourages him to cast away all restraint and to “Do as thou wilt.”

Romans 1:26-32
For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and, although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

Every evil thing described by the apostle Paul in this passage is increasing rapidly in the hour in which we live. As Satan’s kingdom, Babylon, is rising, mankind is falling into greater depths of spiritual darkness. Yet, at the same time, man maintains an illusion of ascending into the heavens to be as god.

What we observe in NASA is the equivalent of the building of a tower in the ancient city of Babel. It is man’s attempt to ascend to the heavens through the work of his own hands. Could it be more plain when the man many associate most with JPL, the precursor to NASA, was a Satanist who performed a work of magic called Babalon Working? NASA, the American space program, is an attempt to ascend into the heavens, to pick up the attempt where man left off 4,000 years ago. This work is an affront to God even as it was in the book of Genesis. It is also a work based upon a lie. The lie is that man can ascend to the heavens and become like God through his own efforts.

It is little wonder that NASA lied about being able to transport men into the heavens to set foot on the moon, plant flags, conduct Masonic rituals, and claim another heavenly body as their own. Evil men are driven to ascend in pride when Yahweh would have them to bow in humility. Yahweh resists the proud. He resisted the men who labored to build the Tower of Babel, a tower incidentally that history informs us was adorned with images of the heavens at its top. Yahweh is resisting men today as they continue vainly to attempt to establish their throne beside His own. Man is manifesting the nature of Satan who did the same aeons ago.

Isaiah 14:13-14
“But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’”

Is this not what NASA and every space agency of man is seeking to do? These are the modern tower builders. Yahweh has told mankind that his dominion is on the Earth, yet man, like Satan, is not content. He wants to establish dominion elsewhere, on other worlds.

The attempt is vain. It is futile to strive against Yahweh. There is not an agency of the government full of more guile and deceit, more fraud and vain boasting, than NASA. This is because it is a Satanically inspired organization, and its reason for existence is to try to throw off the restrictions placed upon mankind by his Creator, even as Satan sought to defy God.

Psalms 2:1-6
Why are the nations in an uproar, and the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand, and the rulers take counsel together against Yahweh and against His Anointed: “Let us tear their fetters apart, and cast away their cords from us!” He who sits in the heavens laughs. The Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury: But as for Me, I have installed My King upon Zion, My holy mountain.”

These words describe precisely the actions of NASA as they devise a vain thing. The vain thing is attempting to escape the Earth’s domain and establish their rule in the heavens. Yahweh will not permit this. He has set barriers before them to render their attempts futile. Yet man says, “Let us find a way. Let us tear God’s fetters from us.”

Consider why these words are followed by the statement that Yahweh will install His King upon Zion, His holy mountain. God is contrasting man’s attempts to establish his rule upon the heights of Babylon with His own irresistible plan to establish Yahshua upon Mount Zion.

Man is attempting to reach beyond earth to set his foot on other heavenly bodies. They speak of establishing outposts on other planets. They want to be able to live off-world. All of this is a repeat of the spirit of the tower builders of Babel. Jack Parsons’ vision was one of defiance toward Yahweh and His Christ. He even proclaimed himself the Antichrist. What did this Antichrist do for a living? He sought means to ascend into the heavens. This worker of Babalon, was in rebellion against God, and so too is NASA. Yahweh scoffs at man’s efforts, assuring humanity that the One who will be elevated will be His Son as He is established upon holy Mount Zion.

Did man go to the moon? Only in his rebellious dreams.
