It beats me where that reference comes from. It must be some "This site will tell you everything you wanted to know about Freemasonry. The author is a recognised 33rd degree Master." that pops around.

I surely don't know anything about a "celestial deity" Baphomet.

Didn't we already do the whole Baphomet thing in great detail?

Stephen Hawking turned 70 years old today. Surprising, seeing his physical condition.

The guy is in good company as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge for 30 years - the list includes Sir Isaac Newton, Isaac Milner and Charles Babbage.

And this is no bullshit, and no conspiracy either. It's science. Good old science - and in his case, a brilliant mind.

Happy Birthday Stephen!

I follow Space.com on Facebook and they posted this link today about why Stephen has lived as long as he has with the ALS.

First one is tldw. On the second one the two trails are definitely at different altitudes giving an apparent size difference, and no doubt a different vapor concentration as well. (not to mention probably two different speeds (and maybe even two entirely different plane specs..)).

If you are looking for good evidence of chemtrails, this is not it.

At what altitude would the condensation spread like that?

A Government Bill introduced to Parliament in May 2010, which has since passed its first reading and been through a Select Committee review. It is awaiting a second reading as at 20 July. It may be enacted in the near future.

What are the problems with the Food Bill?
  • It turns a human right (to grow food and share it) into a government-authorised privilege that can be summarily revoked.
  • It makes it illegal to distribute “food” without authorisation, and it defines “food” in such a way that it includes nutrients, seeds, natural medicines, essential minerals and drinks (including water).
  • By controlling seeds, the bill takes the power to grow food away from the public and puts it in the hands of seed companies. That power may be abused.
  • Growing food for distribution must be authorised, even for “cottage industries”, and such authorisation can be denied.
  • Under the Food Bill, Police acting as Food Safety Officers can raid premises without a warrant, using all equipment they deem necessary – including guns (Clause 265 – 1).
  • Members of the private sector can also be Food Safety Officers, as at Clause 243. So Monsanto employees can raid premises – including marae – backed up by armed police.
  • The Bill gives Food Safety Officers immunity from criminal and civil prosecution.
  • The Government has created this bill to keep in line with its World Trade Organisation obligations under an international scheme called Codex Alimentarius (“Food Book”). So it has to pass this bill in one form or another.
  • The bill would undermine the efforts of many people to become more self-sufficient within their local communities.
  • Seed banks and seed-sharing networks could be shut down if they could not obtain authorisation. Loss of seed variety would make it more difficult to grow one’s own food.
  • Home-grown food and some or all seed could not be bartered on a scale or frequency necessary to feed people in communities where commercially available food has become unaffordable or unavailable (for example due to economic collapse).
  • Restrictions on the trade of food and seed would quickly lead to the permanent loss of heirloom strains, as well as a general lowering of plant diversity in agriculture.
  • Organic producers of heirloom foods could lose market share to big-money agribusiness outfits, leading to an increase in the consumption of nutrient-poor and GE foods.

freitasm: Have you read the bill or just parroting?


I posted a source at the end as I reproduced a portion of said website, attributing the credit to it. Also, I would not put it past them to pass something like this.

freitasm: So are you posting because you agree with the source, or because you disagree with the source?


I disagree with the bill/law, if thats in fact what it plans to do.

So you should read the bill instead of relying on the opinion of some biased web site.
