2012

What dates are marked on your 2012 calendar? Maybe you've penciled in Friday, July 27, the date the Olympic games begin in London. Or Tuesday, November 6, the day Americans go to the polls to choose their president. Well, you might want to include one more: Friday, December 21, the date time ends. Yes, time -- and by extension the world -- as we know it.

Ancient Encounters

When science and faith collide, the truth can be stranger than fiction. Reports of UFO sightings have been with us a very long time. Evidence of ancient UFO activity appears in the earliest biblical texts.

First Contact

When the UFOs arrive, FEMA has a plan for disaster control — it’s all right there in the firefighter’s manual. Seriously. It’s all in chapter 13 of the second edition of FEMA’s “Fire Officer’s Guide to Disaster Control” titled “Enemy Attack and UFO Potential.”

Reach for the Stars

When the cosmic Ebert & Roeper review the “Twilight Zones” of the galaxies, how many of ours will make their top ten? “What you are about to see is a matter of human record. Explain it: we cannot. Disprove it: we cannot. We simply invite you to explore with us the amazing world of the Unknown… to take that One Step… Beyond.”

I fully expected to have trouble sitting through this nearly three hour movie. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by the fast pace and compelling narrative. I loved the nonlinear storylines, the gripping vignettes and thrilling action sequences. Moving in and out of time as seamlessly as it weaves in and out of lives and relationships, “Cloud Atlas explores how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.” Great movie. Mythology worthy of the Matrix and Bladerunner.

Prometheus: The Questions

Prometheus

Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” is filled with mythology and asks some of the biggest questions man has ever pondered. To it’s credit, it does not offer neatly packaged answers. Instead, it leaves most of the backstories unexplained. Why did the Engineers change their minds and decide to destroy life on earth? Why did the android David poison Holloway? What is going on in the beginning when the Engineer drinks the black goo? Tell us your theories and check out this interesting collection of fan sites that think they have the answers. Enjoy!
