  Special Rosary on Good Friday...




Imagine what might happen if every Catholic in the world would pray a Rosary on the same day! We have an example in October of 1573, when Europe was saved from the invasion of the mighty Turkish fleet, by the praying of the Rosary by all Christians!

So, on Good Friday, let us all pray a Rosary for peace in the world and the return of moral values into our communities. If possible, please pray your Rosary between Noon and 3:00pm.

Also, please e-mail this message to every Catholic on your address list, and ask them to pass it along to every Catholic on their lists. Let's unite in praying one of the most powerful prayers in existence, for these intentions, on one of the holiest days in our Church year. 


God bless all,

Hi All

[Hoax] Google has Done it Again !!!

>>>> Following is a Hoax! This device does not exist at PRESENT!

Also have a look at here:


heck out this device ...
Guess what you can do with a touch screen, camera, scanner, WiFi, and google maps ...

View a building through it, and it gives you all the information about that building....

Choose a building and touch a floor and it tells you more details of the building. You can use it when you want to know a car model, an insect name, what kind of food is served at a restaurant and how much, who built a bridge, etc. etc.

It's got a scanner built in.

so you can use it this way when you want to check the meaning of a word in the newspaper, book, magazine, etc. It would be much easier to read a real book. You can use the dictionary, wikipedia, thesaurus and anything else available on the web. What do you think?

Indoor guide:Works in a building, airport, station, hospital, etc.

Automatic simultaneous translation: here Latin to English.

Search keyword: Helpful when you want to find out a word from a lot of text in newspaper/book.

Nutrition: This kind of function would be helpful for health freaks..

There are two different opinions regarding to the emergence of this world, some people think this world with all live and all events would be a tiny part of the logical causal chain which started with the big bang, the others are convinced of it, that it is finally the fault of Adam and Eve because they have not observed the one holy law of God: "When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her . . ." According to the religious view the big bang etc would be a willfully deception of God, because without the doubt in God it wouldn't be possible to test the faith and unbelief of mankind and the sense of this world would get lost. On the other hand, a causal chain out of cause and effect can not have a beginning respectively not emerge out of nothing, this contradicts to the laws of science, therewith there's not only no cause before or for the big bang, but also no energy which would have been necessary for the big bang, even not a tiny disbalance between anything. If two fingers are pressed together, is nothing between them or rather no matter, of course the universe, the human himself and the bright world which surrounds the human not emerged out of the completely harmless nothing between two fingers or without God, this are simply stories which were invented by some humans and which are believed by children, if they are told to them early enough, in the first states of the USA such stories were deleted already successfully from the curriculum, so that they weren't taught any more to the children in the schools. Depriving children of their believe and religion is a serious crime, it's in the hands of our generation to stop the systematic and unfair education of many million children to the unbelieve!
If the big bang could have happened without God, practically everything could have emerged out of this, but this universe was build exactly so, that the suppositions for live are given, for example without voltage no brainwaves could flow, without radiation this world would be dark and ice-cold, without atoms and the possibility to build molecules live would be impossible, the same would be without many other chemical properties and reactions or without elements like oxygen or carbon or hydrogen or . . ., also the lost of time or movement or space or matter or the three states of matter or physical energy or chemical energy or different agencies or continuity or . . . would make live finally impossible. Without intelligence something absolute senseless would have emerged out of the big bang or out of nothing, but of course no live. Yes, the frightening recognition is, that the universe was constructed deliberately exactly so, that the suppositions for live and higher live are given!
For the alleged chemical evolution of live, a first living and survivable unicellular organism would have been necessary, but a just 10 µm large cell, a very complex, perfectly compound, three-dimensional puzzle or a survivable machine out of at least 10 quadrillion pieces (16 g/mol), atoms of different kind and attribute, impossibly could be washed together in an unrealistic puddle out of cytoplasm, be bound together in the same second by many different chemical processes into a flexible unit and get enliven also in the same moment, to start to breathe, to eat, to grow . . . and to produce randomly complete and living self-copies, which will grow up some day to intelligent structured humans. If we are honest we must admit, that even not only one single dead DNA strand could be washed together in a liquid or the belonging to copysystems, already the DNA strands of the first survivable cell must randomly have conformed exactly to the cell construction, beside this DNA strands are written in a very high programming language, until today nobody can understand how or by which encoding systems this codes get transcribed into commands, movements and material constructions. Also for all the different cell organelles or sub-systems of the first survivable cell must have been directly there the belonging to copysystems or already the first cell division would have been impossible, but how high must be the technology of a material system which could copy itself, try to build a computer which could copy itself!
The functions of cells partially happen on the molecular and atomic level, if the dateless old atoms, out of which we and the cells are set together, would be as big as table tennis balls, an average human brain with 1250 to 1375 g would take in a little bit more space than the whole planet earth with its diameter of 12700 km (13,5 g/mol, the volume of a table tennis ball is 33,5 cm^3), it's a wonder that a grown thinking machine of such complexity ever could work without going defect. If the 10 quadrillion atoms of a 10 µm large unicellular organism would be as big as table tennis balls, this unicellular organism would take in the whole city Tokyo by a hight of more than 500 meters. If God would build a machine out of 10 quadrillion atoms of different kind and attribute, this machine wouldn't die any more after its commissioning, because it really would start to breathe, to eat, to grow, to move . . . to survive independently in its world and to divide itself many trillion times, to conquer the planet and to travel to the moon. If God would construct a machine with such properties, it would be so small, that we even couldn't see it with our multicellular eyes. We have got no idea about the intelligence of God, the creator out of nothing, but surly it's not grateful to use the by God constructed brain to say, that a dirty puddle was the inventor of live.
A just 10 µm large unicellular organism is a very complex, perfectly compound, three-dimensional puzzle out of at least 10 quadrillion pieces of different kind and attribute, but a chemical evolution even wouldn't be able to wash correctly together a DNA string or a two-dimensional computer program character string out of 1000 signs, which is written with only 10 different letters, because with every sign, which will be attached after the first sign, the probability that the program was written correctly sinks by the factor 10, so the probability that a computer program out of 1000 signs will be written correctly by random or will be washed together in a dirty puddle is 10^1000 (a 1 with one thousand 0). In contrast to this, today we know, that the whole universe contains less than 10^100 atoms totally and that it is less than 10^18 seconds old. If the universe would be 100 times smaller or younger, the chance that the chemical evolution really happened would be 100 times less, if the 1000 sign computer program would be 100 times shorter, the chance that the chemical evolution really happened would be 100 times bigger, so we can stroke out the zeros: 10^1000 - 10^100 - 10^18 = 10^882. We have reduced the whole universe to one atom and an age of one second through only 118 letters! So the iron proof for the absolute impossibility of a chemical evolution was written down!
Obviously a long time ago was created a world which seems to be produced and controlled by random and in which we can decide without the fear of God, so it would be good to decide just like Jesus would have done! The Jews, the Christians and the Muslims they all believe in Adam and Eve and in the same God, but they are also self-righteous and brave enough just to believe and to die in the religion in which they were randomly born in, God has made the humans like this, at least God is justly, so God can' t judge the humans therefore. Can't? The 5th gospel of the Bible, the Barnabas gospel, was removed out of the Bible because a prophet called Ali was predicted by Jesus as the "Paraclete", which shall bring new laws of God. Ali was the second name of Mohammed, for over thousand years a secret was made out of this. According to the published gospels, the "Paraclete" is the Spirit of truth which goes out from God, therewith could also be meant the archangel Gabriel, which transmitted the Quran to Mohammed. In an other, still existing part of the Bible is Mohammed predicted through God himself (5.Moses 18:18,19): "I will raise up for them a prophet like you (Mose) from among their brothers (the brothers of the Jews respectively the Israelites are the Ismaelites: Abraham > Ismael > Mohammed), I will put my words in his mouth (the Quran is the only book of God himself), and he will tell them everything I command him." Statements of God himself never leave room for doubts. Abraham had two sons, Ismael and Isaac, Ismael became the grandfather of the Ismaelites (the Arabs) and his brother Isaac became the grandfather of the Israelites (the Jews). Ismael was born as son of Abraham and the Egyptian handmaid Hadschar, Hadschar has found the well Zamzam in Mecca when her son Ismael nearly died of thirst. Ismael's descendant Mohammed was a very friendly person and initially a sheepherder, the Quran was transmitted to Mohammed through the archangel Gabriel, Mohammed himself was an illiterate. Isaac, the second son of Abraham which he had with Sara, was the ancestor of many prophets up to Jesus. God has also given real proofs for the truthfulness of the Islam, so that misunderstandings can be avoided, for examples, it was impossible for Mohammed to know 1400 years ago, that the universe expands since the big bang and that it theoretically must collapse again in the same way or that the water of the Atlantic Ocean and the water of the Mediterranean Sea not get merged with each other as if an invisible barrier would be between them or that the mountains are anchored far below in the earth, so that the continental plates are hold by them in their position or in which phases a microscopically small embryo get developed during the pregnancy or that Christianity wars will really happen in future exactly like prophesied (here are some more examples). Most of the belonging to text parts in the Quran are marked additionally with the note, that this is a sign of God for the humans, so that it's sure, that this is definitely not a coincidence, but knowledge. Even the Buddhists and the Hindu people must admit, that this really is a wonder. Beside the Quran, were written down the sayings of Mohammed, this so-called hadith fill whole books. Like the other prophets, was also Mohammed authorized by God to cause wonders through which the mistrustful people became believers (here are some examples), it's also evident, that that what was prophesied really got fulfilled. Through a nightly ascension Mohammed was shown the Temple Mount of Israel and the Gardens of Paradise which shall be unimaginable beautiful, he told his followers, that even a space in Paradise, not bigger than a foot, is better than the whole world and whatever is in it. He also said, that one hour in the eternal Paradise will be greater than a whole life in this world ever could be and that the nice smell of Paradise can be perceived from a walking distance of forty years. Some people will even get access to Paradise for simply having an atoms weight of faith. The live in this world seems to be real and its existence is also only a wonder, so are we the causal chain out of nothing, a network in the dark which thinks about itself and starts to believe in God or are we made by an unimaginable high intelligence? Believe is the light in our head and we shall move into this light! Freedom is if we recognize and do what God want and that what we can reach for God in this world means richness for us in the eternal Paradise! Some humans will be happy for 100 years and some will be sad for 100 years, but when this life ends will the eternity begin, so why to life for a worthless dust particle when it comes about the entire universe. Happy New Year 2010!
