Re: Last minute tips for parents when the SHTF
Stay focused and don't waste your time with government shills

Arguing with a government shill is a HUGE TIMEWASTER. They're infiltrating GLP, getting wise to the fact that ACs get no respect. They pose as regular folks, but actually are literally actors. They have a premade plausible history of their ethnicity, sex, education, spirituality, whatever. Be cautious about being sucked in by them.

Their goal is to create disinformation. To say a lie, well that's almost always going to cause a knee jerk reaction at the detection of their BS. What they're more likely to do is praise you, say common buzzwords to get you to think they're preppers, ask you a couple of questions, and then you're hooked.

Don't fall for it. Most of them are datamining and infiltrating. Once they get your trust, then they begin to tell half-truths to persuade you to change, and mostly their audience is everyone reading along.

Be wise and innocent and discern the truth. A real prepper is very careful about their security. They're not going to mention what they have at home, where they live, who they associate with, what arms they have, etc.

Cobb Construction

Cobb homes and structures are a very old and inexpensive form of construction. I have no doubt that you'll utilize this if you have a lot of clay on your property. Here's some information on how to use it. It's within the technical ability of most people, and hence why a lot of permie folks are using it.

[link to greenbuildingelements.com]
[link to www.cobworks.com]
[link to en.wikipedia.org]

[link to www.appropedia.org]
A schematic:
[link to www.handprintpress.com]


Now the really useful aspect of it, from a practical aspect of Summer cooking is a cob oven. You will get tired of heating indoors if you end up with a woodstove, as running it will get enormously HOT in the heat of Summer. Remember no air conditioning post-collapse. Those great great grannies of ours must have been drenched in sweat from the high collars in the insane Summer heat plus woodstoves. This is why our ancestors built summer kitchens, and often they were made outside within screened in porches for air flow.

There are more complicated ones, and these use wood gas to burn instead of the wood actually burning and so you're using less fuel. These are usually dual chamber cob ovens.

This is incredibly efficient for minimal wood, but what is more, think...your burning oven's smoke will drift. Imagine choking upon that in Summers as the smoke wafted through homes. That's not such a big deal on the prairie. It's a huge deal in a suburb given the proximity to your neighbor's home. It could start a fistfight!

Realize this...you probably could make a cob oven for ten families and then use WAY LESS wood especially if a dual chamber and less smoke and less argument and do less labor as a result.[They fire for two hours and burn for eight, so everyone can use it and space it out or cook at once for all and prepare food for next day.] This would greatly benefit the community by sharing resources. All of the wives will be very very happy with you and all of the husbands will be very very happy to have to source less wood.

Note: did you see his shillelagh? Cool huh? This guy is a very clever engineer, and you need MacGuyvers like that in your tribe.

Now think how cool the temperature would be inside a cobb home in Summer. Clay doesn't conduct heat well, does it? In fact it's a great insulator. That property means natural air conditioning. You still need some way to generate air movement, a subject I'm working on for still Summer air will drive you INSANE!

Here's some technical specs on cob home's energy performance:
[link to ecosenseliving.files.wordpress.com]
I would cut and paste from the article but they buggered up the scanning. A cob home uses about 85% less electricity, which is very significant and might alone make creating a cobb home important enough to do it. It might be an ideal school building for example for your post-collapse community. It's strong, cool, heats up well, etc.

Re: Last minute tips for parents when the SHTF
Because of all the uncertainty in the world, I think it would be very wise for you all to download an ap like this:
[link to www.downloadhelper.net]
and then not only watch the videos I posted, but also to download them too. It's very easy to copy and past all of the information I posted into one word doc or pdf and then have that either printed out or saved. That only will help you if you have a laptop and a solar backup charger.

Please do this now so I don't worry about you.

If the SHTF, then I'll post as long as I can, but may disappear.

There's a lot of very helpful prepping videos as well as some very good videos on other things on youtube or elsewhere. If there's a collapse, and you had these things, then you'd be way ahead of your neighbors. Find some legal entertainment too, for think how welcome such things would be to occasionally watch when everything is grim.

Re: Last minute tips for parents when the SHTF
When the collapse comes, you may be the only Christian to ever witness to the people in your tribe.

Here's one persuasive gentle lovely way to share your faith.

There might not be another Christian present and never be a pastor in your midst.

This means you have a lot of responsibility to share your faith.

Witnessing is not yelling. Witnessing is not using fear or reinforcing guilt or shame.

If you really want to affect others, pre or post-collapse, then your life is the best way to show your faith. If you are sincere, kind-hearted, always giving, seldom taking, cheerful when others are grumpy, the first to lend a hand, the last to sit down to eat, the first to volunteer, the kind soul who says, "Lay down and sleep; I'll take watch early. I'll watch your children for an hour. I'll share my food.", then those things will speak VOLUMES about you and your character.

Then, chances are good that they will say, "Why do always do the right thing? Where is your source of strength? Why are you so good?"

Then you can share the Gospel of Jesus the Christ.

It's not about convincing. It's not about the Theory of Evolution. It's not about Hell. It's not about all of that.

You see, I'll bet they've run into 100 angry Christians and as a result, all of those folks have made your witnessing difficult. You have to overcome all the junk that they've feebly shown to "teach em right". In reality they really messed up their witness. Now you have a chance to show compassion, understanding, and a commitment to them as a brother or sister.

Real witnessing is about talking about the beauty of Creation and the compeling beauty and intricacy of each species so carefully connected. It's about the Man from Galilee who also is the Lord of Creation and the Lamb of God, and the Name Above All Names.

Talking and sharing about these things, you might be able to spread your faith and also facilitate their encounter with Yeshua. Jesus Saves. Jesus Saves. Jesus Saves. We only help a tiny little bit by being a good example.

How not to witness to unbelievers....

Thread: EUKARYOTIC CELLS - A Devastating Blow For the Fairytale of Evolution

Worse, for such actions of chest thumping result not in a dialogue that might convince some to believe, but also alienates believers who are disgusted by a focus on Evolution instead of Jesus Christ.

This is not an effective witness. It's a tragic failure.

How is God glorified in any of that exchange in that topic?

Re: Last minute tips for parents when the SHTF
Self-Justification for Sin is still Sin

There are some Christians, probably well meaning who say things like, "God told me to say this to you. God led me to post this on this topic. I am God's modern day prophet."

Errr, maybe. If so, if you ever say anything which doesn't come true, then you'd be a liar, right? And so, by your self-justification you ended up not only hurting the Gospel, but worse you would be a false prophet and that is a very scary place of sin, for false prophets are influenced by Satan.

Don't make these kinds of claims. They are confusing to nonbelievers. They are confusing to believers.

There are many things you can say instead like, "I feel so close to God, and because of that, because I feel the intense love of Jesus in my heart, I wanted to help you." This is perfectly fine and also is meaningful to both unbeliever and believer, isn't it?

Sometimes after a lot of prayer and fasting, a pastor and church council might jointly say something like, "We prayed about it. We feel like the Holy Spirit is talking to us. We think we're meant to go ahead and break new ground and plant a new church.". Something along those lines, that comes from a lot of intentional soul searching and done in a very deliberate slow manner to get spiritual direction from God, this can be said because it wasn't some fluff, but a realy deep contemplative deliberation.

When we act like Jesus specifically called us by name and said to do something, then we must always think, "Is that me wishing it, or is it really the Holy Spirit moving in me?" It's entirely possible that God is speaking to you. Of course it is.

Be careful about this.

Re: Last minute tips for parents when the SHTF
When you see topics that look Biblical and then you read and see Gnostic texts within them like:
Thread: Bible Says Current Civilization Will Last 6000 Years
which is quoting from the extra-Biblical Gnostic text of the gospel of bartholomew, then BEWARE of the false prophet who mixed Christian teaching with these discredited Gnostic teachings.

The whole Gnostic movement is about "hidden knowledge" and then this makes a reader feel special. They think, "Oh see, I wondered if the Church Fathers messed around and clipped out books of the Bible?" That's very heretical thought.

That's very troubling and I wouldn't get involved in any of that, for the Gnostics also believed that Lucifer was the great angel that brought enlightenment. That's saying what is evil is good and what's good is evil.

It is pure heresy.

Re: Last minute tips for parents when the SHTF
The worst case scenario: Heresy Takes Over Christianity

A lot of preppers worry about EMP, Pandemic, or a massive Deluge. They think those would be the worst situations, and I agree that all of them are awful.

That isn't the worst case scenario though. There is something worse than all of them, and that's the dark time of the Tribulation. I won't go into all the particulars now. There are great books on that subject, and I hope that you're in a church that has a bookstore and they probably can guide you or your pastor can.

One of the awful aspects of evil is that it isn't overt. If evil was clearly present and we could see the danger, then we'd avoid it, right? If you were walking down a path and there was Lucifer at the end, then you'd back up the way you came.

But Lucifer doesn't work like that. He hides. He subverts people and steals their souls. He makes offerings to them, but mostly they give up their souls for free. He uses these people and they do his bidding.

The most frightening aspect of evil is when we find it within those we trust. Isn't that the horror of discovering a trusted family member or a church official harmed a child? We thought we could trust them, and we allowed those who were innocent to be alone with them, and then in their wickedness they attacked the innocent.

The most damage that Satan can do is by infiltrating Christians. They may even think they're doing what's right. They may say the right things. Their words feel comforting.
Thread: Bible Says Current Civilization Will Last 6000 Years
The post in the link above discusses the Bible with great fervor and then in the same breath discuss Gnostic texts as if they have the same authority as God's Word. That is heresy.

Don't listen to me, I'm just a prepper guy teaching skills and trying to help save as many people as possible. Don't rely upon me for your spirituality.

I want you to find a church home if you haven't already. Find a pastor that you trust and spend an intentional amount of time with that pastor and church family. Get baptized and find a ministry in that church and devote yourself to the Kingdom of God. Pray to Jesus every chance you can for the time of great sorrow may be coming soon. Who knows when that time will come?

But be very wise and discerning about things you read and expose yourself to. The scariest thing is when you listen to a Christian you think you can trust, and then they begin teaching you “hidden knowledge that they claim has been suppressed”. That quest almost always begins by someone saying, “You should read the Gospel of Thomas....” or any number of the Gnostic texts.

It's highly likely that Satan could use books like these to pervert the Gospel of Jesus Christ and then end up condemning all of those formerly devout Christians into eternal death. Toying with the occult is extremely dangerous and that's tempting for some people, even devout Christians. Don't be tempted.

"I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book." Revelation 22:18

Re: Last minute tips for parents when the SHTF
I cannot know what all Christians are doing. I know that among many American Christians, the number one reason they don't prepare is they feel safe. They believe that God will protect them from evil, and if we come to the last days, then God will rapture every Christian soul to safety. As such, they need not fear and they need not store supplies.

That kind of thinking shows a real lack of studying Holy Scripture as well as having careless disregard for anyone else who's not a Christian.

Is that born out by evidence? Is there anything in the Bible that says American Christians won't suffer at the hands of Satan.

No. It's a false belief. American Christians suffer every day because of Evil. Worse, some who pretend to be Christians teach false doctrines.


All over the world, Christians suffer. Don't lie to yourself and think, "Well I live a superpower nation. I am safe from persecution. That's happening to those Christians because of repressive governments and radical fundamentalist religions. That's not coming from evil."

That ^ kind of thinking is heresy. It's a belief that American Christians are somehow the New Israel and therefore have some kind of exclusive shield over them. It is nonsense.

Stop believing that God will magically shield you. It can happen here in America. It can happen in any Western nation. It can happen anywhere.

Throughout history, God comes to the rescue of God's people. God uses supernatural force and angels to come to not only the aid of Christians but also unbelievers.

Perhaps even moment by moment miracles are happening to protect you.

That doesn't mean you are bulletproof. That doesn't mean that if you're devout that no criminal won't attack your family. That doesn't mean a repessive government won't jail Christians. That doesn't mean people won't enslave you.

They have throughout history. Christians in all nations continue to suffer at the hands of Evil.

You have a responsibility to store up supplies, learn skills, and arm yourself. If you do not, then you will not be able to protect yourself.

A technique for shooting arrows more rapidly and accurately

Lars Andersen fires arrows not by drawing from a quiver, but by holding three at once. By doing so, not only can he fire faster, but also has learned to fire instinctively. He's also been able to fire more than ten arrows before the first strikes the ground.






EDIT: By the way, in history archers both planted their arrows in the dirt in front of them to contaminate the tips before battle as well as in manure to cause an infection.

You'll notice that I almost always include multiple links to sites with evidence of prepping skills, rather than simply spout information.
Thread: DOOMSDAY PREPPERS - half of preppers will die of wrong canning methods
^Here's an example of what NOT to do. In this case, an alleged prepper is posting ridiculous disinformation about canning methods. You see how I posted evidence from a medical sites as well as canning sites to show the falseness of his/her claims.

If anything we need MORE canning not less, for the actual incidence rate of botulims is so small, only 1000 documented cases worldwide in 7 billion people, and on average 100 cases or less in the USA each year. Most not fatal.

In a time of poor global economy, canning allows you to preserve your food cheaply and only requires purchasing some minimal equipment. In addition, some canning jar lids are made to be reuseable. Only the most wasteful person would discount canning as it's a tried and true method of safe food preservation.

Personally, I think dehydration is more important, but that's up for you to decide based upon good critical thinking and pantry space. Freezing is ok, but what if you lose power?

If you find bad prepping advice, here or anywhere, please set the record straight. The goal is to create inexpensive, simple skills that can easily be communicated. I'm not perfect by any means, so I certainly make mistakes all day long, and hence why I almost always provide documentation so you can see precisely how to do something.

If someone is clearly spreading disinformation, then first a polite correction should be posted in their topic, and then if that doesn't work, a one starring of bad information, red karma, and even reporting abusive disinformation is in order.

Re: Last minute tips for parents when the SHTF
[link to www.ibiblio.org]

This is a famous painting by Hokusai, a Japanese artist who lived from 1760-1849 AD. It has great personal meaning for me, for I am a world traveler and have been to Hawaii and the Caribbean as well as Japan and have seen enormous waves.

Everyone immediately notices the mighty wave that's about to crash down. Did you also notice the slender ships, more like long canoes that will be hit by that wave? I bet any sailor or fisherman worth his salt noticed them instinctively. They are not running in terror, are they?

Look at the canoe in the foreground that almost has reached the wave. If they keep paddling they might crest it and so avoid it. In the background the lagging canoe is going to be flooded because of circumstances or laziness or both.

Great disaster can strike, often repeatedly by the next wave of an unfolding disaster. More often than not, it's not one thing like the weather, but all of the failures of a supply chain, loss of utilities, lack of supplies, lack of medical training, etc that cause injuries, malnutrition, illness, and death in a disaster.

It would be wisdom to click on that famous painting and print it out and post it in your bathroom near the mirror. Then you would likely learn skills and buy supplies and get right with God, for a wave might be in your near future.

We don't fear a disaster. We prepare for it like the people of God have always prepared. If we do that, then we can do what we historically do as Christians: we help our neighbors in need from our abundance.

Don't be like some Japanese were during the time period of Hokusai. They knew that great waves could overtake them, and actually intentionally didn't learn to swim, for they felt it was hopeless again the Sea. How foolish! Prepare instead like a steadfast sailor and grit your teeth and prepare for the Next Wave.

Re: Last minute tips for parents when the SHTF
I'm strong and wealthy enough that I don't have to prep

This statement above is a common reason most people don't prep. Even in this economy, they have enough money that they can purchase luxury food items, eat in expensive restaurants, take vacations around the world, and so they feel relatively safe in their current financial situation. They may be under 40 and so they feel relatively healthy, and so they have a mental idea of their physicality, and so they feel somewhat secure as to their ability to “handle it”.

Is that sort of thinking based upon reality or based upon subjective opinion? I'm going to challenge you to actually sit down and do a net worth statement. That's a disciplined method of calculating your assets from securities, cash, valuables, and real estate and contrast that with liabilities like remaining principal on your home mortgage, outstanding bills, and other debt you must pay off. Now figure in the event of an emergency how “liquid” those assets are. Liquidity is a measure of how much time it would take to convert assets into cash to either accumulate or to pay liabilities. Now measure the chances of loss of wages suddenly versus your assets and calculate how long you could reasonably continue at your present living standard of living on that money.

It isn't long, is it? If you're like most people, you might have six months to a year if you lost your job. Maybe two if more disciplined. If you're not disciplined at all, then you might be living paycheck to paycheck and literally could be homeless in two months as eviction notices come in.

Now let's do an assessment of your physical strength. Go to the gym and workout with a buddy to measure your upper and lower body strength and also your endurance. Do this for a week, not just once and see how sore you get and how you decline in those areas. If you're like most people, if you look at something like the physical fitness scores for a soldier of your nation, I'll bet that you score abjectly low.

You have a very false sense of security. In a disaster or collapse over 90 % of people are poorly prepared. If it lasts more than two weeks, more than 95% are poorly prepared and will be dehydrated, malnourished, cold, and miserable.

Snap out of your slumber. Turn off the TV. Get in shape, gather supplies, and learn skills. Spend more time building up the relationships with your friends and family so that if a disaster came, then you could pool your resources as a TRIBE. If not spiritual, then ask yourself, “Why am I avoiding going to church and reading the Bible and teaching my children and being a good husband for my wife?” I can tell you this, if you are balanced and sincere and intentionally becoming more spiritual, I don't know any wives that wouldn't love their husbands MORE not less. It will transform you.

Doing these simple things in a measured way and you can truly feel more secure and probably will become more frugal as well.
