Urgent Stock Market Message

UK Solar Eclipse - End Time Sign, Judgement Day, Doomsday!

Politics / Religion Mar 19, 2015 - 09:14 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat


The biggest astronomical event of this century will take place across Britain tomorrow as the UK will see its first solar eclipse in 16 years at around 9.30am in the morning. Increasingly, the mainstream press (BBC) has been busy building the UK population up into eclipse fever of when, how and where in the UK the eclipse will manifest itself from about 85% in the South to a 98% at Britain's northern most tip for a jaw dropping and fear inducing near total eclipse where our tiny Moon in totality blocks out the Sun and plunges the earth into cold darkness.

Ever since the hominids first evolved speech, the awe inspiring solar eclipse has virtually always been heralded as a message of doom from the gods, and which the savvy elite could calculate the occurrence of and use as a manifestation of their power over the sun god to drill fear into the uneducated enslaved masses.

And so it is today in modern 21st century Britain as many Jews, Christians, Hindus and Muslims will succumb to doctrine that tends to state that the Solar Eclipse is bad omen, a harbinger of doom, even the end of the world!


Christians are especially abuzz with the prospects of a super full moon vernal equinox solar eclipse, as many believe this to be a direct message from God as a warning of Judgement Day!

Joel 2:10
Before them the earth quakes, The heavens tremble, The sun and the moon grow dark And the stars lose their brightness.

Joel 2:31
"The sun will be turned into darkness And the moon into blood Before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.

Matthew 24:29
"But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

Revelation 6:12
I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood;

Revelation 8:12
The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way.


In Israel, many Jews will be out praying at the western wall as they conclude it to be a warning to gentiles and a sign of Judgement on the nations. Already Jewish commentators are proclaiming the eclipse as a sign of the rise of anti-semitism and Islam in Europe and Britain.


The Quran is pretty specific in what the sun and the moon are lanterns for mankind to know the passage of time, so that they may prepare for Allahs reckoning.

It is He Who made the sun a shining thing and the moon as a light and measured out its (their) stages, that you might know the number of years and the reckoning. Allāh did not create this but in truth. He explains the signs in detail for people who have knowledge.Qur'an 10:5

He it is that cleaves the day-break (from the dark): He makes the night for rest and tranquility and the sun and moon for the reckoning [of time])
Qur'an 6:96

In terms of the eclipse the quran alludes to the Sun and the Moon being of similar size.

And the moon darkens And the sun and the moon are joined, Qur'an 75:8-9

For muslims the eclipse is a reminder of Judgement Day.

Narrated Abu Musa: The sun eclipsed and the Prophet got up, being afraid that it might be the Hour (i.e. Day of Judgment). He went to the Mosque and offered a prayer with the longest Qiyam, bowing and prostration that I had ever seen him doing. Then he said, "These signs which Allah sends do not occur because of the life or death of somebody, but Allah makes His worshipers afraid by them. So when you see anything thereof, proceed to remember Allah, invoke Him and ask for His forgiveness."

And specifically that all muslims should pray for forgiveness during the eclipse:

Narrated 'Aisha: In the life-time of Allah's Apostle, the sun eclipsed, so he led the people in prayer, and stood up and performed a long Qiyam, then bowed for a long while. He stood up again and performed a long Qiyam but this time the period of standing was shorter than the first. He bowed again for a long time but shorter than the first one, then he prostrated and prolonged the prostration. He did the same in the second Raka as he did in the first and then finished the prayer; by then the sun (eclipse) had cleared. He delivered the Khutba (sermon) and after praising and glorifying Allah he said, "The sun and the moon are two signs amongst the signs of Allah; they do not eclipse on the death or life of anyone. So when you see the eclipse, remember Allah and say Takbir, pray and give Sadaqa (charity)."

And of course all true muslims believe that the Sun revolves around the Earth.

Here's another dose of Earth centred Saudi doctrine -

If it weren't for the oil (which of course God put there) then clearly Saudi Arabia would be scraping along at the bottom of the barrel.

Though ironically it is much safer to have ones head facing to the ground during an eclipse than to be staring at the sun!

Hinduism - Meanwhile Britain's hindu's fear the suns rays will damage their temple idols and eclipses are deemed to be especially dangerous for pregnant women.

Whilst according to Britain's growing chinese population it is simply the dragon eating the moon!

So whilst the eclipse in Britain is clearly a bad omen for people of faith. However it could be much worse, imagine how the Jewish and Islamic nut jobs in the middle east would perceive an eclipse in that region as a call to arms to commit even more mass murder in the name of God.
