Decoded & the Gravity Analogy

I was at a wonderful retreat this morning. Then I went home, turned on the television (I like noise in the background when I do certain types of schoolwork that don't require too much brain concentration).

I saw that Decoded was on the History Channel. Now, I LOVE history, and Decoded is such a fun show that kind of twists history and tries to "decode" conspiracy theories about major historic events. For instance, apparently there's a theory that when John Wilkes Booth killed Abraham Lincoln, they instead of being killed, he escaped and lived his life elsewhere. So they do intense research, interviews, visit archives, etc to try and see how possible it is that, for instance, Booth wasn't killed when historians say he was.

Anyway, today's episode is about Georgia's Guidestones, the USA's version of England's Stonehenge (which I have visited and they are extraordinary). Apparently, there are many theories about it's ties to mass genocide, the end of the world, and what the survivors should do.

ANYWAYS, some of the interviews are with people of a certain philosophy and even the intelligent researchers of Georgia Tech. Hearing them talk reminds me of the Homily during today's Mass. That instead of rising to God and man becoming God, God came down and became the tiniest of things on earth (a little molecule inside Mary's womb) so that we could

Luke 5: 27 - 32
27After this he went out, and saw a tax collector, named Levi, sitting at the tax office; and he said to him, "Follow me."
28And he left everything, and rose and followed him.
29And Levi made him a great feast in his house; and there was a large company of tax collectors and others sitting at table with them.
30And the Pharisees and their scribes murmured against his disciples, saying, "Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?"
31And Jesus answered them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick;
32I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
