The Bible has been rewritten and translated so much that making any sense of it is
difficult, but in a search of the Revised Standard Edition for the word 'seal' on
www.bibleontheweb.com I found some interesting clues which may refer to Planetary or Moon seals rather than seals found on this planet. There seem to be seven.
5 he who removes mountains, and they know it not, when he overturns them in his anger; 6 who shakes the earth out of its place, and its pillars tremble; 7 who commands the sun, and it does not rise; who seals up the stars; 8 who alone stretched out the heavens, and trampled the waves of the sea; 9 who made the Bear and Orion, the Plei'ades and the chambers of the south; 10 who does great things beyond understanding, and marvelous things without number.
Job 38 (Page 474 of 1189)
1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind: 2 "Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? 3 Gird up your loins like a man, I will question you, and you shall declare to me. 4 "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. 5 Who determined its measurements--surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? 6 On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone, 7 when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? 8 "Or who shut in the sea with doors, when it burst forth from the womb; 9 when I made clouds its garment, and thick darkness its swaddling band, 10 and prescribed bounds for it, and set bars and doors, 11 and said, 'Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stayed'?
12 "Have you commanded the morning since your days began, and caused the dawn to know its place, 13 that it might take hold of the skirts of the earth, and the wicked be shaken out of it? 14 It is changed like clay under the seal, and it is dyed like a garment. 15 From the wicked their light is withheld, and their uplifted arm is broken. 16 "Have you entered into the springs of the sea, or walked in the recesses of the deep? 17 Have the gates of death been revealed to you, or have you seen the gates of deep darkness? 18 Have you comprehended the expanse of the earth? Declare, if you know all this. 19 "Where is the way to the dwelling of light, and where is the place of darkness, 20 that you may take it to its territory and that you may discern the paths to its home? 21 You know, for you were born then, and the number of your days is great! 22 "Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, 23 which I have reserved for the time of trouble, for the day of battle and war? 24 What is the way to the place where the light is distributed, or where the east wind is scattered upon the earth? 25 "Who has cleft a channel for the torrents of rain, and a way for the thunderbolt, 26 to bring rain on a land where no man is, on the desert in which there is no man; 27 to satisfy the waste and desolate land, and to make the ground put forth grass? 28 "Has the rain a father, or who has begotten the drops of dew? 29 From whose womb did the ice come forth, and who has given birth to the hoarfrost of heaven? 30 The waters become hard like stone, and the face of the deep is frozen. 31 "Can you bind the chains of the Plei'ades, or loose the cords of Orion? 32 Can you lead forth the Maz'zaroth in their season, or can you guide the Bear with its children?
33 Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you establish their rule on the earth? 34
"Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, that a flood of waters may cover you? 35 Can you send forth lightnings, that they may go and say to you, 'Here we are'? 36 Who has put wisdom in the clouds, or given understanding to the mists? 37 Who can number the clouds by wisdom?
Or who can tilt the waterskins of the heavens, 38 when the dust runs into a mass and the clods cleave fast together? 39 "Can you hunt the prey for the lion, or satisfy the appetite of the young lions, 40 when they crouch in their dens, or lie in wait in their covert? 41
Who provides for the raven its prey, when its young ones cry to God, and wander about for lack of food?

Now, this maybe stretching it a bit, but if we take the only quote from Matthew 27:66, and read the tale of Jesus as an example of the knowledge left to us by the Nephilim in verbal tradition, and if we do not assume that the anomalies of architecture on Mars in the Cydonia region are clever photoshop manipulations for the conspiratorial ends of NASA's space exploration programme, but are actually there, then something interesting happens.
We see that when first seen in '76 (image on the left) and analysed by various people - see The McDaniel Report (1993) the Face in the Cydonia region had many details which confirmed it's interest as a sculpted architectural form. When rephotographed in 1998 and 2001 it has visibly deteriorated. Couple that with the SandKing film and the Starship Troopers films and one starts to wonder about the Moon and Mars, the UFOs we see and the reluctance of NASA to 'fess up.
Even if the anomalous architecture is created by somewhat misunderstood insectoids, did we bomb the Face or did they decide they didn't like the humans they had contacted by telepathy afterall (since we're so horrid and warlike, and complicated, and androcentric)
Just a thought.
Seven seals may refer to the Pleiades, or to the planets and moons within our own solar system, for example.
When you consider the naked vulnerability of this Pioneer Plaque sent out in 1972 to travel around past Jupiter, and compare it to how the Egyptian Gods were depicted, (many were humanoid with animal or bird heads - crocodile and ibis etc). It is no wonder that we are having troubled dreams and sexual abuse with probing, and it would be a wonder if we were visited at all - how embarrassing. Would you set out on holiday with no clothes on, let alone
going out to see the neighbours! It's like pretending to be Adam and Eve to God, when you are generations away from that state of grace. If it was a state of grace and not a slave race of gardeners
Beau Bridges in
New Outer Limits
He goes mad when the
Martian ants he's
brought home to study
create his face in the
sand and turn into
two warring tribes,
one on his side and one
"Beau Bridges is the senior scientist on a Department of Defense project studying insects discovered by NASA probes in the Martian soil. The little beasties nearly break free into our biosphere, and the project is terminated - but Bridges, not about to see his potential Pulitzer Prize taken away, smuggles some of their embryos home to start up his own little alien insect ant-farm in a specially built terrarium in the barn out back. Bridges' power over the intelligent little creatures unhinges him - he becomes addicted to being their God, encouraging them to territoriality and war, and eventually even using them to murder colleagues who cotton-on to what he's doing."
Evol Non Bang
I think it highly likely that as monkeys are still monkeys, and Gorillas still Gorillas etc, and tortoises still the same as they ever were, that a visiting race, a secret group of 'Watchers', or what we would call 'Gods' (don't forget the realms of levels of Angels in between us and the Top level) interceded at several junctures to hybrid the ape with the Divine race at several stages, thus creating what we term 'evolution'. They may have been specialist genetic engineers and biologists, returning occassionally to tinker and improve their creation, possibly even removing the Dinosaurs as being too large and predatorial.
Quoting from Wikipedia:
"In the Torah and several non-canonical Jewish and early Christian writings, nephilim (in Hebrew ??????? means the fallen [ones]) are a people created by the crossbreeding of the "sons of God" (beney ha'elohim, ??? ??????) and the "daughters of men". (See Genesis 6:1.) The word nephilim is loosely translated as giants or titans in some translations of the Bible, and is left as nephilim in others.
When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years." The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown. (Genesis 6:1-4, English Standard" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nephilim
Many pictures, photo images, of
planets and moons, it seems to me,
have this distinctive seal.
A large circle with a dot in the middle.
A stamp of creation, which implies
that these things were made
skillfully, and placed in specific
relationship to each other on paths
in a geomathematically precise
and beautifully engineered way.
The amazing design,
especially in microscopic detail,
on our own planet shows that
random explosions are not the

embarrased by this,
how about you?
Did we have a global
referendum on it?
