California Drought and El Niño Results Part 2

This is the second installment of forecast results for the observations I made about the California drought. You can read the original post here. The first results were posted here. In that first installment, we saw that rain did affect California and the surrounding area shortly after the September 17th Jupiter-Neptune opposition, which is what the forecast had called for.

The next date mentioned in the forecast was that of October 6th. I deemed this important because Mars opposed Neptune right on the Jupiter-Neptune opposition of September 17th. Let's see what happened. First, the California and West Coast area is singled out because the Jupiter-Neptune opposition was on the meridian through that area as seen in the astro-locality map below.

The National Weather Service reported that on the 6th, an upper-level low pressure area over Southern California would move into parts of the Southwest. The low would pull moisture from the Gulf of California into the Southwestern quarter of the country producing showers and thunderstorms from Southern and Central California eastward. I would think that any rain would be welcome at this time. The upper-level low would then bring locally heavy rain and flash flooding to the Four Corners region.


Materialism reduces thinking to neurons firing in the brain. For the materialist, humans don’t believe something because we are rationally persuaded of its truth, but because of neuronal patterns in our gray matter.
But what does that imply for materialists’ own views? To be consistent, they must apply the same reasoning to themselves: Their own materialism is not a product of rational thought, but of neurons firing in their brains. In that case, why should the rest of us give it any credence? As apologist Greg Koukl puts it, this is how a worldview “commits suicide.” When its own definition of truth is applied to itself, it discredits itself. - Nancy Pearcey
