No reports of that. They’re probably really nice guys. I visited London in December and me and my friend were lost and looking for directions at like 11PM at night. I decided to go up to the ‘scariest’ looking black dude as an experiment and ask him for directions. He was really surprised, said he didn’t know and quickly walked off. He seemed lovely.

When I say scary I mean he looked gangster and unapproachable.

The phases of Venus didn't prove the Ptolemaic model wrong, it only shown that its epicycles should have been centered on the sun - Ptolemy didn't know or need the proper distances when he fixed the epicycle inbetween sun and earth.

Stellar parallax did not prove the Tychonic model wrong, it only shown that the stars would also orbit the sun every year.

Gravity doesn't prove that earth moves. All that needs to occur for the earth to serve as the center of mass of the universe is that all the stars and their accompanying bodies be equally distributed around the earth at all times.

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

Now could Psalm 104:5 mean that the earth can't be moved the way David couldn't be moved according to Psalm 16:8? Do you mean that Psalm 104:5 is a metaphor about a globe rotating at 1000 miles per hour, orbiting the sun at 67000 miles per hour all while whirling around the center of the galaxy at 490000 miles per hour?

The way a literal description is used about the spiritual condition of a man (therefore his heart is glad and his glory rejoices and his flesh also will dwell securely) doesn't translate to the way a metaphorical description can be used about a physical object, which doesn't have its own spirit as far as I am aware.

Jupiter. And this happened right when Mars moved into square with Jupiter.

Jupiter really.

Yes, Mars was square Jup. I erected a chart for the event....


As you can see pluto is exactly conjunct the Asc. This [and more] says to me the explosion isn't what they are saying it was. Then the question came to me of which planet rules ammonium nitrate.

I forgot! This one would lead to others, even though it's not bad in itself.

Rather perceptive and timely to look for a planetary link to Ammonia. I wouldn't have thought of that.

It isn’t personal Chrysalis it’s the rules for this thread

It stood out to me like a sore thumb. There are no other images in this thread.

Yeah, we had to guard against an inundation of memes and diagrams, so it really should be removed and replaced by a link to it. Thanks!

What inspired you to connect ammonia to a planet?

There's another exact Mars square coming up on the 13th, this one to Pluto. Then another one to Saturn on the 24th.

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

Because i don't believe what the msm is saying regarding the explosion. When i finally got the correct time of the explosion for the event i of course noticed Pluto exactly conjunct the Asc. I instantly throught my instincts are correct, but then my libra kicked in and i thought but am i correct, maybe pluto rules ammonium nitrate.

But im thinking it would be more Neptune. Im not too sure.

Jupiter is well-known for the huge ammonia storms in its atmosphere. Also, I was watching for Mars in Aries squares to planets in Capricorn.

This brings it neatly together.

I thought msm is saying it wasn't an accident. The stuff had been stored there for six years with no problem. What if it was struck by lightning though!?!

Actually, threads don't just belong to the thread OP. Thread OP can request no images and even use words like "strictly", but there is no imposition on others to follow that. It is not a forum rule, so it doesn't seem right to force someone to remove the image, or even to not post one.

Thread is nobody's personal property.

I am under the impression due to seeking advice recently about my tarot thread, that if the rules of the thread are clearly stated in the first post, the moderator is happy to help enforce it.

I also didn’t force anyone.

As a mod in the past, I only went by the topic of the thread and if it derailed significantly, then I would move the digressing posts.

I have yet to come across that type of moderation where you are told how you should contribute or express yourself . Lol and then we boast about freedom of speech in today’s world

I also find that some leeway, room for creativity or ‘being human’ should be given. I find it ridiculous when the expectation is that an astrology thread is going to be just about astrology in every post. We are not robots. We are humans discussing astrology that do digress into some general talk at times or even memes

Now there, I perfectly demonstrated how a bit of digression can happen.

Do you think it's wrong for the OP to be able to limit a thread's posts to text?

Btw, J.A. retaliated by limiting a thread to memes-ONLY!
