Flat Earth meltdown: NASA astronauts sparks fierce debate with photos of Earth from space

At the same time, just south of Alexandria in Syene, no shadows were being cast by the Sun.

Eratosthenes determined the planet must be curved if the Sun was casting its light at the same angle but shadows were only present in one location.

The Earth’s shape can be easily proven with very simple experiments.

If you look at a ship sailing off in the horizon, it will not grow smaller and smaller until it disappears.

Instead, you will see it sink below the horizon, hull first, followed by its mast.

Life on Mars: Has NASA’s Curiosity discovered a ‘humanoid’ alien on the Red Planet?

‘s Curiosity rover has been exploring the surface of Mars for signs of life since 2012. Although the rover has failed to unearth concrete evidence of life, many conspiracy theorists believe the evidence could be hidden in plain sight – in the rover’s photos. Self-titled hunter Scott C Waring has proposed one such photo reveals the remains of a dead “humanoid” alien in the background.


Mr Waring took to his blog ET Data Base where he shared official NASA snapshots of Mars.

The supposed alien, which at first glance appears to be nothing more than a rock, was highlighted by Mr Waring in brown and yellow.

He said: “Now this is rare. It’s not every day you find a humanoid body laying on the surface of an alien planet.

“The body remains mostly intact and is definitely not a statue.

“The legs are boney and dried out. One leg is even broken off at the knee.

“The other leg is mostly intact with a foot at the end.

“The chest and lower stomach area is different from humans in that its more reptilian-like.”

The UFO hunter then pointed out features that he believes can prove his bizarre claims.

He said: “The upper arms are less visible, but one arm can be seen behind the person’s shoulder.

“The neck, ear, cheek, nose, eye and hair are all easily seen.

There is no doubt in my mind that this was an intelligent being

Scott Waring, ET Data Base

“The focus of the person is great, the quality of the photo is high.

“There is no doubt in my mind that this was an intelligent being which stood about two metres tall on Mars.”

Mr Waring went on to suggest the supposed alien’s DNA is radically different to our own, explaining how it has survived on the planet’s surface.

Alternatively, the expert suggested the alien may have died very recently.

He said: “I also found some other anomalies that are proof of alien life, but they pale in comparison to the alien body.”

Mr Waring also shared his discoveries on YouTube where many people agreed with his claims.

One viewer said: “Obviously most of them seem to be living in the interior.

“They know we are looking around and taking pictures.

“They are probably playing with us and testing us by placing things on the planet surface as well.”

Another person said: “Hi Scott, animal or mineral? Either way they are not natural. Great find.”

A third person said: “Don’t say they cause they will try to knock you off. Good job with finding that stuff.”

However, it is more likely the photos are a case of pareidolia.

Pareidolia is a bizarre effect that causes the brain to see shapes and patterns where they do not exist.

For example, pareidolia can cause people to see faces in rock formations of identifiable shapes in random clouds.

Lunar eclipse prophecy: Preacher warns Blood Moon contains ‘message from God’

As pubs and restaurants reopen and fireworks fill the night sky on July 4, stargazers will celebrate a celestial change taking place to the Full Moon. This will see the first Full Moon of the summer season slowly change colour due to a penumbral .


But a one-hundred-year-old prophecy warns this subtle lunar change is, in fact, an ominous omen.

The Sun and the Moon are how God will announce the Final Redemption

Rabbi Yosef Berger

Controversial conspiracy theorist Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King Davids Tomb, believes this could trigger the death of a prominent politician and the even evacuation of Israel.

Joel 3:3 states: “Before the great and terrible day of Hashem comes, I will set portents in the sky and on earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke; The sun shall turn into darkness And the moon into blood.

Rabbi Berger believes this means Saturday’s lunar eclipse clearly contains a message from God.

The Torah expert also cited Genesis 1:14 in his controversial claim: “Hashem said ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate day from night; they shall serve as signs for the set times—the days and the years.'”

The rabbi added the interpretation of these ‘signs’ will be essential in the days preceding the Final Redemption as God’s intent will be expressed in nature.

Rabbi Berger said: “The Sun and the Moon are how God will announce the Final Redemption, so everyone can see and everyone will have the ruach hakodesh [holy spirit, prophetic ability] to understand.

“This was also true before the Exodus in Egypt, when all the Jews were given the prophetic ability to understand that it was time. Unfortunately, even then, some chose not to leave Egypt.”

“A modern man does not understand how God appears in nature, how God speaks to us through nature.

“To the prophets, this was very clear.”

The Old Testament’s Joel 3:1-4 is also cited as a source for the prophecy: “After that, I will pour out My spirit on all flesh; Your sons and daughters shall prophesy; Your old men shall dream dreams, And your young men shall see visions.

“I will even pour out My spirit Upon male and female slaves in those days.

“Before the great and terrible day of Hashem comes, I will set portents in the sky and on earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke; The Sun shall turn into darkness and the Moon into blood.”


The rabbi referred to a discussion of eclipses in the Talmud (Sukkot 29a) specifying lunar eclipses are a bad omen for Israel because he believes the Middle Eastern state is spiritually represented by the Moon.

He considered the lunar eclipse taking place in the east side of the heavens is a bad omen for all the nations in the east.

And similarly, an eclipse occurring in the western hemisphere is a bad sign for all the nations in the west.

The rabbi cited Yalkut Moshe, a book of kabbalistic insights written in 1894 by Poland’s Rabbi Moshe ben Yisrael Benyamin.

Rabbi Benyamin is quoted as saying: “If the moon is eclipsed in the month of Tammuz, a ‘sultan’ will die suddenly and great troubles will follow.

“The eclipse will occur on the 12th day of the month of Tammuz.

“When the moon is eclipsed in Tammuz, a king of ‘luazi’ will die suddenly and a great confusion will follow, leading to great problems.”

‘Luazi’ is generally translated as foreign, as seen in the Book of Psalms.

However, the Moon will only partially darken on the night of July 4 and 5.

This weekend’s eclipse will be penumbral one, meaning it will unfold in the weakest shadow cast by the Sun and the Earth.

As a result, the eclipsing will most likely go unnoticed by most people.

Astronomer Deborah Byrd of said: “There is never a dark bite taken out of the moon, as in a partial eclipse.

“The eclipse never progresses to reach the dramatic minutes of totality.

“At best, at mid-eclipse, very observant people will notice a dark shading on the moon’s face.

“Others will look and notice nothing at all.”

“There will be a Blood Moon – caused by a total eclipse of the Moon – May 26, 2021.”

TL;DR: Stay (relatively) protected (while still being able to eat and drink) with a zippered face cover for $26.99, a 22% savings as of July 4. 

Unless you’re living under a news-free rock, you know that cities everywhere are seeing spikes in coronavirus cases. Beyond social distancing and frequently washing your hands, the key to reducing the spread of the virus is simple: wear a mask

But how does one eat or drink while wearing a mask? It’s actually possible. Thanks to Shut Your Mouth — a Texas-based company founded by three innovative female entrepreneurs in the midst of the pandemic — you can do it all courtesy of the brand’s Zippered Face Cover

Shut Your Mouth’s genius product offers a convenient solution all with one zipper. There’s a zipper right in the center of the mask and you simply unzip any time you want to sip on your drink or take a bite out of your meal. Even though you’ll certainly be more protected when using a standard mask with no zipper opening, this is still a better alternative than not having anything on at all when you’re eating or drinking in public. 

The mask is also made from woven fabric, ensuring softness and comfort. On top of that, it comes in a variety of fabrics and colors. From seersucker to polka dots, you’ll find a wide selection to choose from. 

For a limited time, there is a sale going on with a few of the styles being discounted at around 22%. Instead of the original $34.99 price tag, select masks are selling for only $26.99. Black, black gingham, navy, grey, and white stripes are the hues included in the sale.

These are machine washable, which means you can get your money’s worth the more times you wear them. If you use one every day for a single month, that’s less than a dollar a day for the mask. Plus, you can get one for a friend and tell them to “zip it,” which we highly recommend.

UFO sighting: Video of disk UFO and ‘alien pilot’ is ‘guaranteed’ to surprise – claim

“The clear transparent dome is seen in it and the alien who is piloting the craft is watching the person below.

“Arizona is famous for its UFO sightings and in such a low populated area, UFOs will be more frequently buzzing around.

“This raw footage is just amazing and it tells us so much in it.”

According to Mr Waring, who analyses UFO sightings and other bizarre phenomena from his home in Taiwan, the UFO video can teach us about how alien spacecraft move and hide from our sight.

Mr Waring said: “So much information in one video. I love it.”

Eclipse 2020: What does the Bible say about lunar eclipses?

The Full Moon will pass through the Earth’s outer shadow this weekend and subtly darken during what is known as a penumbral . Although penumbral eclipses are a fairly regular event, some believe they are linked to passages in the Bible. Total or  eclipses, in particular, are often linked to prophecies in the Book of Joel and Book of Revelation.


According to Christian scripture, God will signal the start of the end times with signs in the heavens and the Earth.

In the Book of Revelation, which details prophetic visions of the world’s demise, the Moon is described as turning red.

Revelation 6:12-14 reads: “I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake.

“The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.

“The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.”

The Moon also turns red in the second chapter of Joel, where the titular prophet describes “the Day of the LORD”.

The prophetic passages describe the manifestation of God in the end days, followed by natural disasters and cataclysm.

Joel 2:29-32 reads: “Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.

“I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke.

“The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.

The whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell

Revelation 6

“And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, even among the survivors whom the Lord calls.”

An eclipse can also be interpreted from a passage in the Gospel of Matthew, where a solar eclipse is connected to the end times.

Matthew 24:29-30 reads: “Immediately after the distress of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.

“Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven.”

Another passage, Ezekiel 32:7 reads: “And when I extinguish you, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud And the moon will not give its light.”

Revelation 8:12 also reads: “The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way.”

Many prominent .

There is, however, no scientific or religious reason to draw connections between the natural phenomena and scripture.

Lunar and solar eclipses have been occurring long before and long after the Bible was written.

The Bible also very clearly states no one knows when the final hour will strike.

Jesus said in the Gospel of Matthew: “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

“For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away.

“That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”

Jesus also said: “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.”

NASA UFO sighting: Astronaut’s unsolved confession exposed ‘Noticed a cylindrical object’

At the time, some journalists speculated the astronaut may have seen a secret satellite.

America’s race to the Moon was, after all, part of the Cold War with the Soviet Union.

However, experts speculate there is a much simpler explanation – the UFO was likely orbital debris from the Gemini 4 launch.

According to James Oberg, a former space engineer and rocket scientist, the Gemini 4 case cannot be conclusively closed, but the astronaut might have seen a part of NASA’s Titan 11 rocket.

He wrote on his blog: “McDivitt, more than a decade after the fact, refused to believe he could have misidentified that object – but both his degraded eyesight and different viewing angle at the time of the sighting eliminate any reliability from that claim – and years of UFO research have taught us the surprising lesson that pilots are, in truth, among the poorest observers of UFOs because of their instinctive pattern of perceiving visual stimuli primarily in terms of threats to their own vehicles.
