borg: Go ahead an laugh but It's not just the Mayan calendar the ends in December modern day western calendars also end in December. Coincidence? I think not.


The rabbit hole goes much deeper than that. 21st December 2012 = 21/12/2012. Australian PM has 12 letters. Messiah has 7 letters, which is divisible into 2012 287 times, with a remainder of 3. 3 = 2+1. That's right, the messiah will not only come on the 21st of December, but the messiah will also be an childless atheist WOMAN.

Need further proof? Julia Gillard sums up to 116 if J=10, u=21 etc. Turn this number upside down and there you have it. The messiah was responsible for 9/11, yet she STILL made it to the position of PM.

I rest my case.

3 x 6
Knight of St. John's Eve was 1308 ... 1344
sum of digits of 36 is 9
6 things intact with seals
6 knights appearing 6 times in 6 places
6 x 20 = 120 years
6 places or 6 tasks to be followed
6 documents scattered in 6 places
5 x 120 = 600
1344 + 600 = 1944
digits of 1944 add up to 18 which is 3 x 6
1944 is terminal date of plan, but with a view to another target, the year 2000
6 keepers per seal, each serving 120 years
Templers were persecuted as heretics; they came to identify with the anti-Christ
Templers believed that the second milennium would see the advent of their Jerusalem
666 is number of the beast
the year 666 is the year of the beast
the year 2000 is when the Templer's revenge will triumph
36 knights for each of the 6 places makes 216 whose digits add up to 9
6 centuries, so 6 x 216 = 1296 whose digits add up to 18 or 3 x 6 or 666
9 is the number of the Knights that founded the temple in Jerusalem
sum of odd numbers from 1 to 7 is 16
sum of even numbers from 2 to 8 is 20
20 + 16 = 36
Christ is the elixir of the alchemists. Everyone knows that the Trinity is an Aryan concept anyway. That is why the whole rule of the Templers drawn up by the druid St. Bernards is riddled with the number 3.
The 36 invisibles are now 360. Multiply that by 2 and you get 720. Subtract 120 years at the end of which the doors are open and you get 600

I don't get that so much. I do see that she is against gay marriage, but seems to be for extending the rights married couples enjoy to gay couples. I haven't looked into it a lot or anything, but on the surface that seems to be what I'm seeing.

That doesn't strike me as raging homophobe... I usually reserve such strong wording for the likes of the members of the Westborough Baptist Church members and people like that.

Ya, probably wouldn't call her a raging homophobe but I do wonder why an atheist would have a problem with same sex marriage? Every argument I've ever heard against it has always boiled down to a religious argument.

A few people actually have a public policy argument against it, kind of like the argument that they have against polygamy. Not saying that's her problem; just that I've seen some people have legal or policy concerns that have nothing to do with the god-says-its-bad thingy.

Well, "Raging homophobe" is probably a bit hyperbolic (I should admit that her predecessor and my parents hated eachother, so her and I don't particularly like eachother either), but she's more likely to grow a second head than extend any rights. :P

As for why she's against equality - I have no idea.

Yeah... generally it's a matter of religiousness and with her being atheist, that doesn't fit. Perhaps she sees the term "marriage" to be something traditional even though it carries no particular religious significance for her? Could also be something like thinking that 'married' implies 'breeding' couple? Where homosexual couples cannot breed without an outside party taking part? Could be anything really.

Fluorescent Testicle: As for why she's against equality - I have no idea.


Politics. Our governmental system is designed to give the power to the winners, and then let us, the voters, express how we feel about it. Marriage equality would require her, an atheist pro-labour sort who already doesn't have the elderly on her side.

Basically, she's anti-equality because she recognises she doesn't have the political capital to get that done, as well as all the other shiat she has in mind, like the carbon tax. It's not like it's an issue that needs to be done immediately; it's sad that it doesn't, but if something has a greater sense of urgency to it, she's made the (fairly sensible) estimation that global warming does.

Bingo.

I don't think she gives much of a damn about the question of gay marriage altogether, but to keep the loose coalition that's keeping her government in power by a razor thin majority, she can't let it become a political wedge issue. Until the opposition decides to make it an open issue, freeing parties from voting along party lines, it's only a losing issue for her. If she supported it, but couldn't get it passed anyway, it would be seen as a blow to her leadership, and contentious in the party. If she forced a party line vote to try to get it passed, it's be hugely contentious in the party, because a number of Labor members still are conservative, or come from conservative districts.

I don't like it much at all though.

Well, the press is completely mental about her right now. It's impossible for anything to happen on a federal level without it being her personal fault, or how the government changing its mind is always phrased as 'Gillard's government does X TO SAVE HER HIDE.' It's like somehow she should be prescient about everyfarkingthing.

Pincy: Ya, probably wouldn't call her a raging homophobe but I do wonder why an atheist would have a problem with same sex marriage? Every argument I've ever heard against it has always boiled down to a religious argument.


Here's her reasoning, in her own words:
"I think that there are some important things from our past that need to continue to be part of our present and part of our future," she said. "If I was in a different walk of life, if I'd continued in the law and was partner of a law firm now, I would express the same view, that I think for our culture, for our heritage, the Marriage Act and marriage being between a man and a woman has a special status.

"Now, I know people might look at me and think that's something that they wouldn't necessarily expect me to say, but that is what I believe.

"I'm on the record as saying things like I think it's important for people to understand their Bible stories, not because I'm an advocate of religion - clearly, I'm not - but once again, what comes from the Bible has formed such an important part of our culture." :Link

I think that basically she thinks "marriage" is specifically a churchy thing, and should be respected as such. I could be projecting my personal opinion, but it does seems to fit with the fact she's not married herself, and seems to have no problem extending gay-rights (apart from marriage).

Also, you have to put her stance in context. From my understanding, without gay-marriage in the US, couples can have trouble with social services, or inheritance laws or whatever. That's not the case here in Oz, as de-facto couples (gay or straight) have the same legal rights as married couples. It's not 100% perfect yet (hard to prove de-facto status compared to whipping out a marriage certificate), but issues aside, Oz seems to be moving toward making "marriage" just a word, with religious-significance but no practical significance. So Gillard's stance against gay-marriage isn't as troublesome as it would be in the US.

That's kind of a cop-out though, isn't it? Couldn't she just say, "I'm for it, but there are bigger things to be concerned about?" or "I'm in favor, but let's leave it up to the Parliament?" Something to that effect?

I mean, it doesn't do much, but it might be honest and send a good message.
