The downfall

What would you say if someone told you that we’re sharing Earth with another form of life which is not part of the animal kingdom?

What would you say if I told you that we’re not the only living beings having knowledge on Earth?

How would you respond if I told you that you are being watched even if you’re alone?

No, I’m not going to speak about science fiction. I’m going to talk about a realm that existed and still exists on Earth well before Adam.

Some of you believe in ghosts, some don’t. Personally I don’t believe in “ghosts” as they’re intended to be. But I believe very much in an entity that might have known the person which was to be called “ghost”.

Hence this entity if willing, might very easily take the place of this deceased person for instance and makes us believe that he is that person’s spirit. Or just be a malevolent spirit if he wishes to.

This is just an example of course. I never witnessed a ghost and I’m not willing to meet one either.

I’ve made some research on this weird paranormal being who shares our world. I haven’t found any explanation on the scientific domain but I’ve found some on the Holy Scriptures.

This being who is not perceived by any of our 5 senses, neither by any sophisticated machines, has a few names and has a multitude of images according to the people’s imagination.

Spirt, demon, devil, ghost, Jinn…. Unfortunately as not being made of matter, it cannot be proven existent. We can only believe in this entity by trusting the word of God and by our own experience of the evil on this world.

Now, what I’m about to describe is what I’ve found on the 3 Holy Scriptures and my personal thoughts on the topic.

Let’s start from the beginning, shall we?

God created the Angels made of light. We can easily see that on movies talking about angels, they always end up by showing light somewhere in the movie. They’re not made of matter/particles hence they don’t have a gender yet some people expect of them to be females or babies.

God created another species which was originally pious and obedient like the angels made from smokless fire. Among them was lucifer/the devil. We can easily see the devil in most movies made of fire or turning into fire at the end. This species on the contrary can have ofsprings and can die. Nothing is said about their life’s span though. One thing for sure, the devil isn’t dead yet.

And finally Us, the humans made of clay. Apparently we have the shortest life span.

God says in the Quran:
I did not create the jinn and the humans except to worship Me.
I need no livelihood from them, nor do I need them to feed Me.
Those who do wrong will have their turn, like the turn of their counterparts, so let them not rush Me.
God is the Provider, the One with Power, the Strong

When God decided to creat the humans, He said to the angels, “I am creating a human being, from clay, from molded mud. When I have formed him, and breathed into him of My spirit, fall down prostrating before him.”
So the angels prostrated themselves, all together. Except for Satan. He refused to be among those who prostrated themselves.
God said, “O Satan, what kept you from being among those who prostrated themselves?”
He said, “I am not about to prostrate myself before a human being, whom You created from clay, from molded mud.”
God said, “Then get out of here, for you are an outcast. And the curse will be upon you until the Day of Judgment.”

As you can see, the devil isn’t a fallen angel, he never was. As angels are made of light and the devil made of fire. Angels were obedient while he wasn’t. Unfortunately for his species, lots followed his example:

God said to the angels, “Bow down to Adam.” So they bowed down, except for Satan. He was of the jinn, and he defied the command of his Lord. Will you take him and his offspring as lords instead of Me, when they are an enemy to you? Evil is the exchange for the wrongdoers.

Yes, we can find in the Quran that the devil is part of the Jinn ethnic group (if I may say so). It seems that he produced the downfall of his own kind as he did for ours.

And not all Jinns are bad either. Will tell you about it in a minute, but first let me explain how some people describe Jinns.

I’m sure that the first thought that comes to your mind is Aladin, right? You rub the lamp 3 times and hop! The jinn comes out asking you to make 3 wishes.

I like that Jinn. When I was small I tried to rub a lamp and see if one would come out, unfortunately he didn’t.
In the reality jinns can’t be seen or heard, they share our world (maybe in another dimension) they have the ability to see us, hear us and even tempt us. Hard to believe? Not so if you believe in God.

The word Jinn refers to any object that cannot be detected by human sensory organs, including Angels and Demons. Thus every Demon and every Angel is also a jinn, but not every Jinn is an Angel or a Demon. Jinns are related to heavenly beings, who is able to sin and created from fire, unlike their light-created counterpart.

The chapter 72 in the Quran speaks about them or maybe for them. As they can have faith too. The chapter starts like this:
Say, “It was revealed to me that a band of jinn listened in, and said, ‘We have heard a wondrous Quran. It guides to rectitude, so we have believed in it; and we will never associate anyone with our Lord. And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord—He never had a wife, nor a child. But the fools among us used to say nonsense about God.”

Or in another verse that says:
Recall when We dispatched towards you a number of jinn, to listen to the Quran. When they came in its presence, they said, “Pay attention!” Then, when it was concluded, they rushed to their people, warning them.
They said, “O our people, we have heard a Scripture, sent down after Moses, confirming what came before it. It guides to the truth, and to a straight path. O our people! Answer the caller to God, and believe in Him; and He will forgive you your sins, and will save you from a painful punishment.”

These entities resemble humans for their need to eat and drink, procreation and death, being subject to judgment they will either be condemned to heaven or hell according to their deeds.

As the Jinn were banished from heaven, they had no more right to listen/ know what the angels knew. The skies have been sealed for them hence they spend their life here on earth just like us till they die. This means that they could see and interact with the angels.

In the Bible it is mentioned that Salomon enslaved demons:
When a demon named Ornias harasses a young boy who Salomon knew, by stealing half of his pay and sucking out his vitality through the thumb on his right hand, Solomon received from the archangel Michael a ring with the seal of God after he prayed in the temple which will enable him to command the demons. Solomon lends the ring to the lad who, by throwing the ring at the demon Ornias, stamps him with the seal and brings him under control. Then Solomon orders the demon Ornias to take the ring and similarly imprint the prince of demons, Beelzebul. with him under his command, Solomon now has all of the demons at his bidding to build the temple……

The Quran speaks about Salomon too but in a different story in chapter 27:
16. And Solomon succeeded David. He said, “O people, we were taught the language of birds, and we were given from everything. This is indeed a real blessing.”

17. To the service of Solomon were mobilized his troops of jinn, and men, and birds—all held in strict order.

18. Until, when they came upon the Valley of Ants, an ant said, “O ants! Go into your nests, lest Solomon and his troops crush you without noticing.”

19. He smiled and laughed at her words, and said, “My Lord, direct me to be thankful for the blessings you have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and to do good works that please You. And admit me, by Your grace, into the company of Your virtuous servants.”

20. Then he inspected the birds, and said, “Why do I not see the hoopoe? Or is he among the absentees?

21. I will punish him most severely, or slay him, unless he gives me a valid excuse.”

22. But he did not stay for long. He said, “I have learnt something you did not know. I have come to you from Sheba, with reliable information.

23. I found a woman ruling over them, and she was given of everything, and she has a magnificent throne.

24. I found her and her people worshiping the sun, instead of God. Satan made their conduct appear good to them, and diverted them from the path, so they are not guided.

25. If only they would worship God, who brings to light the mysteries of the heavens and the earth, and knows what you conceal and what you reveal.

26. God—There is no god but He, the Lord of the Sublime Throne.”

27. He said, “We will see, whether you have spoken the truth, or whether you are a liar.

28. Go with this letter of mine, and deliver it to them; then withdraw from them, and see how they respond.”

29. She said, “O Counselors, a gracious letter was delivered to me.

30. It is from Solomon, and it is, ‘In the Name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful.

31. Do not defy me, and come to me submissively.’”

32. She said, “O counselors, advise me in this matter of mine. I never make a decision unless you are present.”

33. They said, “We are a people of might and great courage, but the decision is yours, so consider what you wish to command.”

34. She said, “When kings enter a city, they devastate it, and subjugate its dignified people. Thus they always do.

35. I am sending them a gift, and will see what the envoys bring back.”

36. When he came to Solomon, he said, “Are you supplying me with money? What God has given me is better than what He has given you. It is you who delight in your gift.

37. Go back to them. We will come upon them with troops they cannot resist; and we will expel them from there, disgraced and humiliated.”

38. He said, “O notables, which one of you will bring me her throne before they come to me in submission?”

39. A strong jinn said, “I will bring it to you before you rise from your seat. I am strong and reliable enough to do it.”

40. He who had knowledge from the Book said, “I will bring it to you before your glance returns to you.” And when he saw it settled before him, he said, “This is from the grace of my Lord, to test me, whether I am grateful or ungrateful. He who is grateful, his gratitude is to his own credit; but he who is ungrateful—my Lord is Independent and Generous.”

41. He said, “Disguise her throne for her, and we shall see whether she will be guided, or remains one of the misguided.”

42. When she arrived, it was said, “Is your throne like this?” She said, “As if this is it.” “We were given knowledge before her, and we were submissive.”

43. But she was prevented by what she worshiped besides God; she belonged to a disbelieving people.

44. It was said to her, “Go inside the palace.” And when she saw it, she thought it was a deep pond, and she bared her legs. He said, “It is a palace paved with glass.” She said, “My Lord, I have done wrong to myself, and I have submitted with Solomon, to God, Lord of the Worlds.”

In early Jewish mythology, there are beings called Shedim, that resemble the Jinn. They’re invisible to human eyes but are subject to bodily desires, like procreating and the need to eat, and both may be malevolent or benevolent.

Christian demonology say that the mission of the demons is to induce humans to sin, often by testing/abandoning the faith in God, commit heresy or apostasy, remain or turn themselves Pagan or venerate “idols” (the Christian term for cult images), and gain the highest number of “Satans” or adversaries of God. (Ephesians 6:10-17):

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

It is also said that demons torment people during their life or through possession (Matthew 17:15-16), or simply by showing themselves before persons to frighten them, or by provoking visions that could induce people to sin or to be afraid.

Demons can take any desired appearance, even that of an “angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

13. For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ.

14. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

15. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.

Now that everything is explained, can you be sure that there isn’t a jinn standing right beside you now?

I’ve seen some YouTube videos on paranormal activities. I’m not sure that they’re all authentic. Nowadays we can easily manipulate any video. But surely there must be a few real ones among them.

My last thought on the topic is that, these fellow inhabitants might be living next to us or they might live in their own towns up in the sky. Apparently they are fast and can go anywhere from the ground to the top our earthly sky. They can be wherever they choose to. After all we don’t feel them. Nothing can stop them from tempting us, follow us or even repent and become good jinns.
The old saying remains, you can’t fear what you don’t see, perhaps that’s the reason why they’re so hidden.

The Theory of Fate – Update

Not many believe in the Day of Judgment. Of course not! We’re in the 21th century, we’re so sophisticated that we prefer to believe in what we have proof or in what we think make sense. “The story of ancient times” are too old for us to think about or to still believe in.

Wrong! The Holy Scriptures are never too old. All of them warn us about that Day where we’ll be judged for our deeds. Those who believe in this Event are divided in two groups, those who believe that we’ll attain the judgment with our bodies and those who believe that it will be with our souls only.

In my opinion, souls are not made of matter, hence they shouldn’t fear to be punished as nothing can harm them, they’re spirits after all.

Bodies are made of matter, they can feel the pain or the joys, so they can be rewarded or punished.
I am of those who believe that we’ll attain the judgment with our bodies.

If you’ve read this far, it means that you’re interested. Good! So now comes the interesting part.

You may have previously read my book The Theory of Fate where I’ve given detailed explanations on what the Holy Scriptures say about that Day, in accordance with what science says. And you probably remember that Volcanoes will be the source of the Apocalypse and the Day of Judgment.

Well, I have a little update to the book, which you won’t find in it because it takes a long time to edit and upload again. I preferred to add it here.
I’ve been reading randomly one of the Holy Scriptures; the Quran. And I’ve noticed something that I haven’t seen before. These verses:

28. Woe on that Day to the deniers.
29. “Proceed to what you used to deny.”
30. “Proceed to a shadow of three columns.”
31. Offering no shade, and unavailing against the flames.
32. It shoots sparks as castles.
33. As if they were bundles of rope (or “bright yellow cooper”).
34. Woe on that Day to the falsifiers.
35. This is a Day when they will not speak.
36. And they will not be allowed to apologize.
37. Woe on that Day to the rejecters.
38. This is the Day of Separation; We have gathered you, together with the ancients.

This sentence “Proceed to a shadow of three columns.” is the answer to a question I’ve mentioned in the book; how many Super Volcanoes will be active on the Day of Judgment. The answer is: three, simple as that.

But where exacly will they be?

The hotspots are the tunnels from where the magma gets out. As the Earth’s crust is in constant move, every few millions of years the hotspots change places. For instance, the Yellowstone which is in Wyoming, will be in the Pacific Ocean.

This is the picture of Pangea Ultima (the next super continent) I’ve found online.

These are the current super volcanoes location

If we locate all the super volcanoes on this map, they will be about here:

Three of these will be enough in the Day of Judgment.

But how many will there be for the End of The World?

Only God knows when the Apocalypse will be upon us. So let’s not forget what awaits us, because when that day comes, there is no coming back.

The Path (collaboration with Sann)- Part 1

The sky was dark as usual, the paths were narrow, the lights remained on all day and were seen in every house as it was the only source of light down here. Manon was walking to the library to meet a friend. Schools was starting in a week and she had two more books to read and some research to do. Her friend was her cousin Ted, a boy who dreamed to be a scientist and bring the people back to the surface. Manon was a dreamer, anything was possible for her if she put her mind to it, so Ted was the source of her dreams. The library was a square building on the outskirts of the village. So to get there, Manon crossed many paths and creeks, swaps, bridges, fields and backyards.

Ted was waiting for her busy calculating something

– Hey Ted

– oh hi, you’re early, he said without lifting his head from the calculator

-No…. YOU are BUSY. Did you find anything yet ?

– Not exactly but I have some lead.

– oh yeah ?

– Yep. I’ve found in Mr Carson’s office an old map which shows an ancient route going out of town and ending in a kind of dead end.

– ok, what’s in the dead end?

– I don’t know! We must find out.

– What? How?

– We must find some torches and…. explore

– But…. that’s out of town and it’s forbidden to go out.

– Well… maybe the answer Is there. If is we must find it.

Two days later Ted and Manon met at the same place. Each of them had a backpack. Manon looked nervous, she kept looking back where she came from expecting to see someone rushing to call her back.

– Stop worrying and come on.

Carefully not to be seen they went round the library looking for the lost path. The tall grass made their escape easier. They walked in the tall grass for a few minutes, the town’s lamps faded little by little and only their footsteps could be heard. Ted walked in front and Manon a few paces behind him.

– Ok we’d better turn the torches on now, he said

They kept on going, crossing creeks and ponds every once in a while. There was no sound except for their footsteps in the grass. They’ve walked for a few hours before arriving to a wide round stony place. Both remained silent looking around. There was tall grass almost all around and on the opposite side of them there was the dark mountain wall. It was a dead end.

– What now?, asked Manon

– We search, he replied pointing the torch upwards

They couldn’t see the top of the mountain or should we say the wall perhaps. There wasn’t enough light and the summit must have been quite far.

– I guess that the answer is not up there, said Manon

– I don’t know. There must be something here though.

The stepped on the stony surface, looking for something unusual. Every stone was perfectly round and as hard as a stone can be. Ted was puzzled by the place, he couldn’t figure what was this place for.

– What if the answer is in the grass around us? asked Manon

– Yeah… could be. Ok you start over there, yell if you find anything and don’t go far.

They split, starting by the mountain’s wall toward where they came from. There was nothing except grass, frogs, rabbits, insects and water. After several minutes they met at the trail.

– So far, nothing new, he said

– Should we get back?

Ted looked up again, he didn’t want to leave. There was something to discover, he just couldn’t see what.

– We must camp here for the night. Something will come up in the morning.

They unpacked, and settled the camp. Soon after, they were both asleep.

***

“Hey, we gotta go there?”, said one in his deep voice.

“Yes. All the treasure that we have stolen from the village is safe there. We need to recover it from that place and flee faraway before someone else discovers it”, said the second one, leading his companion. The men walked towards the place where Ted and Manon had been camping. Manon was a light sleeper so she immediately woke up. The men spoke something else too and though Manon couldn’t understand it, she knew they weren’t the only ones there. The men did not see the children and they continued walking.

Manon tried to wake up Ted but he was fast asleep. She decided to peek out of their small tent through a gap in the corner. She looked out to see two dark figures in the distance walking with lamps which turned dimmer every passing moment.

The men had walked quite a distance and they had to climb up now. They chose to wait for sometime and rest. Ted was still asleep and Manon slapped him hard on the cheek. He suddenly woke up with a startle and stared angrily at Manon.

“Ted. Stop looking at me like that. You don’t know what I just saw. Two explorers like us, who went walking in that direction,” she said pointing to the right.

“Holy! How could you not wake me up!! Do you understand what you just did!?”

“Yes. I very well understand what I just did. I woke you up.”

Ted and Manon trotted as fast as they could with their torches in the direction which Manon had indicated. After sometime, Ted suddenly tripped over something. They realised it was a person’s leg. The man who was fast asleep, just turned over to the other side, unaffected by what had just happened. Another man rested beside him. Manon realised that these were the two men whom she had spotted earlier. Ted stumbled upon a map and flashing his torch he realised, he had just found what he had been searching for so long. A way. A tunnel.

***

Ted and Manon tiptoed towards the narrow staircase that led to the tunnel somewhere on the top. They climbed it and finally after an hour or so, they reached the entrance of the tunnel, panting.

“I can’t go further anymore”, Manon panted, dropping down on in front of the entrance.

“Not now, Man. We are almost there. What’s the use of giving up when you can see your destination right in front of you? Let’s do it. Come on.” Ted said, trying to encourage himself and her. Manon raised her hands asking for help. Ted held them and pulled her. They both entered the tunnel and embarked on their journey to the exit of it. The end of the tunnel meant the end of the summit. A way to the top.

The Theory of Fate – Chapter 5/part 9

It will be only a single decree
The day when the horn will be blown and we shall gather them together while they will have turned blue on that day and will be whispering among themselves: you did not remain (in the graves) more than ten (days).

And (remember) the day when the heaven shall be rent asunder with clouds, and the angels shall be sent down, with a grand descending.

And when the trumpet is sounded, that day it will be a distressful day

And listen, the day when the caller will call from a place nearby

Surely the day of decision is an appointed time a day when the trumpet will be blown, and you will come in large groups and the heaven shall be opened, and it will become as gates and the mountains shall be moved away from their places and they will be as if they were a mirage

They wait only but a single shout which will size them while they are disputing then they will not be able to make bequest nor they will return to their family and the trumpet will be blown (2nd blow) and behold from the Graves they will come out quickly to their Lord

How will you do then, if you disbelieve, guard yourselves against a day which will turn the children’s hair grey
When the order will come the horn will be blown,  but the thing is that at first I thought that this loud sound would come from the supervolcano but a lot worst than the Krakatoe volcano did. But then I changed my mind when I read this verse And listen, the day when the caller will call from a place nearby. This verse is speaking of a creature who calls. It will be such a loud sound that it will be able to kill all of us instantly they will not be able to make bequest nor they will return to their family. Actually it is normal that a really loud sound kills someone:

Can sound kill you? The short answer is “yes” — and, rather shockingly, the European Space Agency says that it now has such a sonic weapon in its arsenal that, if it was so inclined, could kill you. For the long answer, read on.

The question is, is 154 decibels enough to kill you? In all honesty, probably not — unless, perhaps, you were stuck with your head inside the horn for a prolonged period. 150 decibels is usually considered enough to burst your eardrums, but the threshold for death is usually pegged at around 185-200 dB. A passenger car driving by at 25 feet is about 60 dB, being next to a jackhammer or lawn mower is around 100 dB, a nearby chainsaw is 120 dB. Generally, 150 dB (eardrum rupture) is only achieved if you stand really close to a jet aircraft during take-off or you’re near an explosive blast.

 If you actually wanted to intentionally kill someone with a sonic weapon, there isn’t a whole lot of research on how you would actually go about doing it. The general consensus is that a loud enough sound could cause an air embolism in your lungs, which then travels to your heart and kills you. Alternatively, your lungs might simply burst from the increased air pressure. (Acoustic energy is just waves of varying sound pressure; the higher the energy, the higher the pressure, the louder the sound.) In some cases, where there’s some kind of underlying physical weakness, loud sounds might cause a seizure or heart attack — but there’s very little evidence to suggest this.

 Perhaps more significantly, though, it’s important to note that a sonic weapon doesn’t have to be lethal or incredibly loud to be effective. High-intensity ultrasonic sound (generally anything above 20KHz) can cause physical damage. Some very low frequencies (infrasound) can apparently cause your eyeballs to vibrate, making it very hard to see. Targeted “sonic bullets” that cause localized pain (or simply burst your eardrums) is probably enough to immobilize most non-action-hero humans.

 When the heaven shall be opened and becomes as gates, that’s not something we can see with our present eyes. There are two things which might turn the childrens’s hair grey. Either the sun’s Uv’s or the volcanes ashes.

Tomorrow as you might know is “Around a cup Of Tea” but there will also be the Conclusion of The Theory Of Fate
