Astrology makes predictions of future events based on cosmological alignments of both planets andRead More the Sun and Moon in relation to constellations of stars. So what exactly is the difference if not the predictions and labels used? While the ancient writers of scripture surely associated celestial events with real world events by sensing a pattern, without knowing that the pattern is repeated throughout the universe, they could not know that it couldn't be personal. That the eclipse happened while the skies were overcast suggests that if it were a sign, few were able to see it. The logical question is to ask why God wouldn't have ensured there were clear skies so that the sign could be seen. Simply put, if it were in fact a sign, hiding it is counter productive. The significance of the world wars depends on from where and when you look at them. Significant to those who lived it to be sure but to those who came afterwards, perhaps less so. While tragic to those who suffered the effects of the times, the losses were replaced within 3 generations and the memory of those who experienced the times are fading as time moves on. Besides, if another world war is to happen, it, like everything else, must be by design of anything is. I do believe that everything happens because it is supposed to or nothing can, I just don't think it all happens for us as some seem to. My ego is healthy but to assume the entire universe was made for man alone is beyond my hubris.

sounds fascinating -- I heard of John Hagee a minister who wrote a book on the Blood Moons - don'tRead More get it yet, but sounds intense, we just had a lunar eclipse + full moon days ago.

christie I hope you don't think it's significant that the eclipse and the full moon occurred at theRead More same time. That is ALWAYS the case (simple geometry).

The more unresponsive the dog is, the funnier that monologue of Launce’s is. During my dramaRead More training, a Royal Shakespeare Company actor performed it in our class, substituting a rolled up coat for Crab. Absolutely brilliant!

Darius Rucker was great but Provident Park was not prepared for this event. We had seats behindRead More home plate and when we got there we noticed that all the sound equipment was set up in the middle of the field so all the seats in this section were obstructed view. This at $50 a ticket. We complained and got our seats changed. Stage was set so far back in center field, seeing Rucker was almost impossible except on the screen especially when the fans stormed the field and were all standing in front of the stage. Buses were provided because we had to park at Pomona Middle School but at the end of the concert, no one on the staff knew where the return buses were. People were standing in the rain for over 1/2 hour waiting for the buses back to the cars. The staff was not fully trained to answer questions and security was lacking. Should have been more security and better informed staff. Hope they plan better for next concert.

Leah-how about all of the great stuff? Security did their best but controlling over 5,000 people isRead More difficult for anyone. The stage was about 20 feet back from the infield and stage is high set so the people aren't really blocking your view unless you were standing in the back of the field. What questions could the staff not answer? I think Dynamic Productions did a fantastic job with everything and the show was amazing. You need to calm down and be thankful for what was great and not ungreatful for the minor difficulties.
