A few years back, I was exposed to an idea known as “Project Blue Beam”. Here’s a very, very brief summary from Tinwiki:

sky Project Blue Beam is allegedly a secret New World Order and US Government project to simulate a "second coming" type event. This will culminate in a very large number of people being taken away into the sky as in a "rapture" type of situation. These events will be brought to fruition by use of the sky as a holographic projection screen for space-based, laser-generating satellites. These space-based projectors are said to project simultaneous images to the four corners of the planet, in every language by region. It will pretend to be the universal fulfillment of the prophecies of old.”

Does that sound fantastic? Sure it does… but get this:

"The first step concerns the breakdown of all archaeological knowledge…supposed new "discoveries" will finally explain that the meanings of the basic doctrines of all the world’s major religions are wrong”

That sounds laughable, right? Yeah…BUT – yesterday, this appeared all over the web:

“Do these mysterious stones mark the site of the Garden of Eden?”

stone The article is about a place in Turkey, called Gobekli Tepe. Archeologists have uncovered carved megaliths “at least 12,000 years old, maybe even 13,000 years old…thus the oldest such site in the world, by a mind-numbing margin. It is so old that it predates settled human life.”

So, great, right? Another dig that pushes back the human timeline. Big Deal. Maybe – but check this:

“The Eden story, in Genesis, tells us of humanity’s innocent and leisured hunter-gatherer past, when we could pluck fruit from the trees, scoop fish from the rivers and spend the rest of our days in pleasure.

But then we ‘fell’ into the harsher life of farming, with its ceaseless toil and daily grind. And we know primitive farming was harsh, compared to the relative indolence of hunting, because of the archaeological evidence.”

Ouch – why on Earth would we go from that happy go lucky hunter-gatherer existence to a world of subsistence farming crap?

The article has a supposition:

“Religion motivated people to take up farming.”

So? Religion is the problem?

Let’s review the supposed “First Step” for Project Blue Beam to enslave the world":

“supposed new "discoveries" will finally explain that the meanings of the basic doctrines of all the world`s major religions are wrong

Funky, huh?

So, what comes next in this story?

STEP 2: The second step deals with the gigantic space show: 3D optical holograms and sounds, laser projections of multiple holographic images in different parts of the world, each receiving a different image, according to its predetermined original national religious faith.

STEP 3: The third step deals with telepathic electronic two-way communication, where ELF(Extra Low Frequency), VLF (Very Low Frequency), and LF (Low Frequency) waves will reach the people of the earth through the insides of their brains, making each person believe that his own God is speaking to him from within his own soul.

bosch STEP 4: The fourth step involves universal supernatural manifestations using electronic means. The goal of this step deals with the materialization of satanic ghosts, spectres, and poltergeists all across the globe in order to push all populations to the edge of a wave of suicide, killing and permanent psychological disorder. After that, humanity is ready for a "New" Messiah to reestablish peace everywhere at any cost, even at the cost of freedom.

RESULT: This superbly staged, full-scale production will supposedly result in social and religious disorders on a massive scale, which will lead to a one world religion and the global dominance asserted by the New World Order.

So, if you suddenly see Jesus, or Mohammed, or Buddha up in the sky, talking in your head – please, ask yourself some questions:

1.) Does your deity have a reputation for doing big public productions? Or is your deity historically noted for one-on-one interactions in relative privacy?

2.) Does your religion predict the return of your deity before or after a fake?

kirk 3.) Even if you do hear the “Voice of God” in your head, is that voice saying things you’d expect your God to say? Remember the old Star Trek idiom “What does God need with a starship?”

I hope this is all ridiculous.

It should be.

But I will be watching.
