"From the very beginning the U.S. dollar has been having some kind of destructive influence on the world's financial system. The people, who created first U.S. dollar notes, placed some mystical signs and symbols on them. The financial crisis may force the USA to issue a new currency because of those signs.
Any changes in the U.S. currency system will lead to changes in other countries. The signs, the symbols and even the size of U.S. dollar notes indicate the terrifying role that the dollar may play soon. Everyone is aware of the sign depicted on the back of the 1-dollar-note - the all-seeing eye. Many sacred books including the Koran say that one of the distinctive features of Antichrist include the following: "It has one eye which looks like a grape berry." The fact that the width of the note makes exactly 66.6 millimeters (Satan's number) may seem to be the most striking one. It is worthy of note that the all-seeing eye appears on Ukraine's 500-hryvna note too."
Well who'd have thought that even in this day & age of Conspiracy Theories those pesky Russkies would have got onto this one? As you probably know, Pravda means "The Truth", so....you'd better believe it. The all-seeing eye on the dollar bill figured prominently in "The Illuminatus Trilogy", & has been pure conspiracy fodder of the highest order ever since. But what about Communist Mystic Symbols? Nothing of note on the rouble as far as I know, but what about the (in)famous Red Star, Hammer, & Sickle?
The Red Star has 5 points - in Kabbalistic terms a 5 pointed star is the "Star Of Man" (or "Star Of The Microcosm", the 6 pointed Star of David being the "Star Of The Macrocosm"). On the Kabbalistic Tree Of Life, the 5th Sephiroth is Geburah, associated with the planet Mars (The Red Planet), symbol of courage & destruction, (war, power, domination, & leadership in the real world).
In pre-Communist times the sickle was commonly associated with The Grim Reaper, symbol of Death - in Tarot-speak this means regeneration, transformation, change, but also destruction. The Communists used it as a symbol of agriculture, just like Freemasons had for centuries. "Death" in the Tarot is connected with the astrological sign of Scorpio, ruled by the planet Mars.
The Hammer is a bit more tricky - also used by Freemasons, for the Communists it symbolised construction & building, but is most commonly associated in the crazy world of Other Worlds with the Nordic god Thor. Now there's a nice touch - Communists using Nordic Pagan symbols?
I always thought that was more in keeping with Adolf & his Thule Society buddies - just goes to show - nothing left & nothing right, only up & down so slight. Type in "Thor" on Wiki for more info.
And straight from Wiki : "Thursday is the fourth day of the week according to the Judeo-Christian calendar and the ISO 8601 international standard adopted in most western countries. In countries that adopt the Sunday-first convention, it is the fifth day of the week".
(Thursday being derived from Thor).
As for The Koran, The Antichrist, The Great Beast 666, & a bit of Ukraine-bashing, well....these guys are just nuts!
So there you have it in a nutshell / nuts' hell - it's all a bloody conspiracy mate.....or just coincidence?
