‘Experts’ Say ‘Blood Moon’ Warns Against Iran Agreement

You knew the Worldnetdaily wasn’t going to sit by and let the Times of Israel steal their thunder when it comes to making monumentally stupid claims about those not-at-all-mysterious “blood moons.” So they’ve got their own article claiming that the blood moons warn against the agreement with Iran, but once again without anything like an argument for that conclusion.

If it’s a coincidence, it’s an astounding one. An ominous “Blood Moon” appearing at the same time the Obama administration is boasting of a nuclear agreement with Iran that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says endangers the very survival of the Jewish state.

And experts warn that Barack Obama’s actions could herald disastrous consequences not just for Israel, but for the world.

Pastor Mark Biltz, the discoverer of the Blood Moons phenomenon, says current events in the Middle East are “totally tied to these Blood Moons.”

“A number of rabbis have said this, that Obama comes across as a kind of Haman figure. Haman we recall was a Persian official who wanted to kill the Jews living within that empire. Of course, the modern heir of the Persian Empire is Iran, now the Islamic Republic. And we have Iranian generals openly saying that they want to destroy Israel. God is clearly sending us a sign reminding us of these parallels.”

Oh yes, clearly. I mean, what other possible explanation could there be that a normal astronomical event that we knew would happen because the laws of physics made it inevitable on a specific date and time would happen at a time when the right wing wants to throw a tantrum about something? Well, given that they throw such a tantrum at least once a week, the odds are pretty fucking good. This is an argument that these halfwits find convincing.

    “Usually, even a non-Christian knows something about the earth, the heavens, and the other elements of this world, about the motion and orbit of the stars and even their size and relative positions, about the predictable eclipses of the sun and moon, the cycles of the years and the seasons, about the kinds of animals, shrubs, stones, and so forth, and this knowledge he hold to as being certain from reason and experience. Now, it is a disgraceful and dangerous thing for an infidel to hear a Christian, presumably giving the meaning of Holy Scripture, talking nonsense on these topics; and we should take all means to prevent such an embarrassing situation, in which people show up vast ignorance in a Christian and laugh it to scorn.”

    St. Augustine. De Genesi ad litteram libri duodecim.

    What, chicken entrails and tea leaves aren’t “sciencey” enough?

    I wonder why colnago80 hasn’t used the blood-moon argument against the agreement. After all, it makes at least as much sense as any of those he has used.

  • John Pieret

    “experts” = “Pastor Mark Biltz”?

    I’m sure he is up to date in all the nuances of nuclear non-proliferation diplomacy. Droll, very droll.

  • StevoR

    Which experts in what?

    Maybe they should go to the Moon and check personally before issuing their pronouncements? Cause luanr surface, composed of haemoglobin, platlets and white blood cells it ain’t!

    Their version of xianity is basically primitive superstition.

    The only difference between WND and Voodoo or Witch Doctors is, the Witch Doctors have better outfits and the Voodooists have better parties.

    Mark your calendars.

    The world ends on September 28, 2015. The last of 4 blood moons.

    This is the Apocalypse, the End Times, the start of the Tribulation or the Rapture.

    Of course it won’t happen. And of course, the xians won’t notice or care. It’s all just children playing Make Believe and Let’s Pretend for…real money.

    But what does the Magic 8-Ball say about the agreement with Iran?

  • Solomon Steltzer

    Woah woah woah, people, let’s not let this one slip by. eh?

    “Pastor Mark Biltz, the discoverer of the Blood Moons phenomenon, ”

    Did I just see them admit the existence of a many thousands of years (or tens of thousands, or millions, or more) old being, currently taking the identity of Pastor Mark Blitz? I mean, if he’s the discoverer of this astronomical event that has been occuring since the formation of the earth and moon, he must also be the oldest living ‘human’!

    Worse, on the very same day “our” “president” and his Muslin brothers came to an agreement, the sun went down. And then it got dark. I know!

    To hear these idiots tell it, you’d think that without an agreement to curb their nuclear ambitions, Iran’s nuclear ambitions would just disappear on their own.

    I don’t know if it’s possible to stop Iran from building a bomb, but I do know that nearly any agreement is more likely to achieve that than a complete lack of one. We always have the option of declaring Iran in violation and dropping bombs on them if an agreement doesn’t work, so the only reason for reflexively opposing any and all agreements is if you’re afraid they will work and remove the impetus to drop bombs.

    Area Man, #14: We always have the option of declaring Iran in violation and dropping bombs on them if an agreement doesn’t work….

    You’re missing the point. According to the war-criminal-wannabees, we should have been dropping bombs on Iran since yesterday.

    Well now Israel can just nuke the moon and negate all its bad influence. Right after they’ve finished nuking iran (just in case).

    If it’s a coincidence, it’s an astounding one.

    If you think that’s astounding, you should see the coincidences that occur when there’s NO blood moon.

    Maybe he’s the old wanderer from A Canticle for Leibowitz. I wonder if Robert Hedrock* knows him.

    I’ve never figured out why God is so cryptic. For at least two millennia he’s never just come out and said something (apparently he would sometimes before that). Instead, he sends a tsunami to Asia to punish people in the United States for gay weddings, and expects us to just figure out that that’s what he’s mad about.
