Scientists transfer 700 DVDs of data in one second
The scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) said this week they had broken the world record by sending data at a speed of 26 terabits per second.
The data, sent over 50 kilometres (31 miles) on a single laser beam, was coded using a system known as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) in which the laser beam is divided into separate colour streams.
Hugo Chavez told a href="http://www.christiancalouboutin.com/" Christian Louboutins Shoes /a Venezuelans on Wednesday that he expects to lose his hair as a result of his cancer treatment.Chavez underwent a first round of chemotherapy in Cuba last week, and he said he plans to keep working while undergoing more treatment. He joked that he may begin to look a bit like the bald actor Yul Brynner."Surely within not many days, you will see a bald Chavez. Do you remember Yul Brynner? I'll be a bit like Yul Chavez. My hair is going to start to fall out... for some months," he a href="http://www.christiancalouboutin.com/christian-louboutin-pumps-c-6.html" Christian Louboutin Pumps /a said in a telephone call broadcast live on state televisio. Chavez said additional phases of chemotherapy will aim to "keep malignant cells from regenerating."Chavez underwent surgery in Cuba on June 20 to remove a cancerous tumor, which he has said was the size of a baseball. He hasn't said what type of cancer he has been diagnosed with or specified where exactly it was located, saying only that it was in his pelvic region.Chavez, who turns 57 on Thursday, said he feels that despite his a href="http://www.christiancalouboutin.com/christian-louboutin-sandals-c-7.html" Christian Lou

Excellent statement Jim!
As you know, Jim, I have already, in effect, endorsed the two pre-tribulation mp3's you link to in your comment by stating nice things about them in an earlier comment of mine. There are a couple of things about the two mp3's I would have stated a little differently, but overall I liked them very much, which is why I endorsed them.
I twice got "Internal communication error" when I clicked your "Eschatology" link, as I did when I clicked the link when you placed the link in another comment.
I believe the word "is" should be after your "Eschatology" link in your previous comment.
Dopey wrote: Matthew 24:21 "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be."
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand: ) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matthew 24:15-21 KJV
It doesn't seem much of a "rapture" when folks have to go fleeing to the hills, eh Dopey?
Dopey, God aways has had a plan, that is what Eschatology. It is all explained in the book of Revelation what will happen in the end times. Gil Rugh has a complete series of sermons here on SA about it, Revelation Series 2008. Or for that matter, you might wish to download the pdf booklet, Prophecy Update.
In September 1939, the Nazi German Hitler started an "awesome" project. The project included war with Poland, Slovakia, France, most of the countries of the British Empire and Commonwealth, Russia, The United States, and other countries. It was so "awesome" the project didn't end until 1945.
Hitler's "awesome" project was also "awesome" in it's attempt to murder as many Jews as possible, the final count being "about six million" Jews murdered.
Hitler's "awesome" project was also "awesome" in the total result of deaths attributed to that war as there is, "an estimated death toll in World War II of 62 to 78 million, making it the deadliest war ever."
Could God have stopped Hitler's "awesome" project before it started? Of course He could have!:
Genesis 18:14 "Is any thing too hard for the LORD?..."
God, however, in regard to World War II, did the same thing He did in regard to the "awesome" project recorded in Genesis Chapter 11: He let the project continue for a while then stopped it.
From the article: "The scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) said this week they had broken the world record by sending data at a speed of 26 terabits per second."
Many conclude those German scientists referred to above have accomplished something significant. Scientists do accomplish awesome things. For instance American scientists, with a little help from from German scientists, put men on the moon. Scientists have enabled one country to destroy a city or cities of another country in seconds, once the nuclear bomb or bombs arrive, at the city.
It seems, once "people" have "imagined" something there is no restraining the "people" unless there is Divine intervention.
Genesis 11:6 " And the LORD said, Behold, the people... and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do."

I said lets pretend. Mostly because I don't know for sure why they would need it to be so much so fast. Most people only think in terms of how much porn or DVD's could they watch, they really have a very limited view of the potential of what is really happening to them.
While this article is about the amount of data on one connection, don't limit the technology to one application. It isn't in place yet nor will ever be as a consumer commodity itself. Think along the lines water main. You have one big pipe to supply the smaller ones.
Could it be the substructure of someone who is not God, attempting to be "all present"?
The problem with these fanciful ideas of false prophets etc is that systems still slow down to the slowest link speed. So in tracking people or voice calls, the link will never be faster than the speed of the cell phone. Or the telephone wire's bandwidth. What this technology speak of is sending a mass amount of data over ONE connection at full speed. Not using many millions of slow connections at the same time. Just one connection.
It shows the potential maximum speed of a laser is huge. It says nothing about all the communication systems we currently use like radio or copper cable.
Lets pretend... Say that well... someone wanted to be able to fool all the people all the time. Perhaps to say... perform a great visual miracle. Lets say they wanted everyone to think a UFO was landing. In order to project a video data stream all over the world that would be viewable in all those places at the same time, so that the "miracle" would be visible to the naked eye... how fast would that large amount of data need to travel?
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (Matthew 24:24)
What if you wanted track every person on the earth at the same time? You've given everyone a cell phone, even in third world countries, and you wanted to key on certain words and phrases so you could track at any moment, any conversation and the whereabouts of your "enemies". Or if you wanted to watch the millions of live cameras all over the world from one location, using face, iris, voice, or finger print data of every individual... How much data would you need to transfer and how fast?
Cool huh? Why... with that much power, someone could trick people into thinking he was god.
Colossians 2 1 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have on your behalf, and for those who are at Laodicea, and for all those who have not personally seen my face, 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God's mystery, that is, Christ Himself, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I say this in order that no one may delude you with persuasive argument.---NASB
This is what is worthy to pass along, no matter what speed it is done.
