A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

"The rise of modern print culture The printing press and the relatively wide availability of printed materials further undermine the importance of the 'local community' in ... Feudal societies based on face-to-face loyalties and oral oaths begin to give way to nation-states and to nationalism based on a shared printed language." Marshall McLuhan: Theoretical elaborations

Ptolemy's Planetarium Emulates The Night Sky

How The Heavens Are Simulated

Modern astronomy is a mystical and occult science. The modern religious minded zealot points not to the actual observations but to the models. If they pointed to the real, daily observations of the Fixed Stars and planetary motions, the illusions of retrograde paradoxes would disappear into the mists of daydream fantasy they were derived from.

The Geocentric Globe Model is the Most Accurate One

"As an indication of exactly how good the Ptolemaic model is, modern planetariums are built using gears and motors that essentially reproduce the Ptolemaic model for the appearance of the sky as viewed from a stationary Earth. In the planetarium projector, motors and gears provide uniform motion of the heavenly bodies. One motor moves the planet projector around in a big circle, which in this case is the deferent, and another gear or motor takes the place of the epicycle."

Modern Astronomy is A Religion: It is as superstitious as Astrology. In fact it is neo-astrology.

Despite university hype and centuries of religious dogma, more modern science did not replace the geocentric model with a less complicated one. Even the simpler Heliocentric model of Newton is more complex than the model of Ptolemy. Today's patchwork of obvious contradictory nonsense backed by illogical math is even more absurd.

Astronomy Was Always an Occult "Science"

astronomy (n.) 

"c. 1200, "astronomy, astrology, scientific or occult study of heavenly bodies," from Old French astrenomie "astronomy, astrology," from Latin astronomia, from Greek astronomia, abstract noun from astronomos, literally "star-regulating," from astron "star" (from PIE root *ster- (2) "star") + nomos "arranging, regulating; rule, law" from PIE root *nem- "to divide, distribute, allot" (see nemesis). Perhaps originally with reference to mapping the constellations or movements of planets.

Þer wes moni god clarc to lokien in þan leofte, to lokien i þan steorren nehʒe and feorren. þe craft is ihate Astronomie. [Layamon, "The Brut," c. 1200]

In English, it is earlier than astrology and originally included the senses now distributed over both words; the gradual differentiation happened 16c.-17c. In Latin and later Greek, astronomia tended to be more scientific than astrologia."
