The big bang is the scientific theory that in the beginning there was nothing, then nothing exploded, which caused everything to be created and come into perfect order.
Sounds like a bunch of crap to me, but I agree with the last part about everything coming into perfect order. Could it be possible the whole universe operates according to a constant predictable mathematical formula?
Astronomers have proven the movement of stars and planets are precise and predictable, following an orderly pattern, not random or chaotic. The behavior of the heavenly bodies reveals someone must have designed everything with amazing precision, which shows how ridiculous it is to believe a random explosion, the big bang, caused everything to start moving in perfect order like clockwork. It takes a lot more blind faith to believe that nonsense than the Genesis account of creation.
Just as the precise movements of the heavens are constant and predictable, some mathematical relationships are also constant and predictable. For example, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter of the same circle is always the same, 3.14159265359, which is a mathematical constant called pi. Regardless of the size of the circle, this ratio remains constant. It can also be defined as the number of times the diameter of a circle will fit around its’ circumference.
Six Amazing Facts About Pi:
- Pi is the most recognized mathematical constant in the world.
- Pi is an irrational number, which means when it is calculated the decimals never stop and never repeat.
- With the help of a powerful computer, a Japanese scientist found 1.24 trillion digits of Pi, breaking all the previous records, but it still keeps going beyond that.
- Computing the value of pi has been used as a stress test for computers.
- The first 144 digits of pi add up to 666, which is the number identified in the Bible as the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:16-18). Also, 144=(6+6)x(6+6). The Lord plans to raise up 144,000 bond servants to wage war against the beast and destroy it (Revelation 7:1-8, 14:1-5).
- Since there are 360 degrees in a circle and pi is intimately connected with the circle, some mathematicians were delighted to discover that the number 360 is at the 359th digit position of pi. (Source: Randomhistory.com)
Economic Big Bang Forecast Based on Pi:
Economist Martin Armstrong, former chairman of Princeton Economics International Ltd., has an interesting theory that economic cycles always follow this constant ratio. He applied his theory to historical economic cycles and found evidence to support it. His theory is cycles move in periods of 3,141 days, which is pi x 1000. This equates to 8.6 years. His studies revealed an economic crisis occurs at the end of each 8.6-year cycle.
His studies revealed another pattern, each wave of 8.6 years was part of a longer wave, which consists of six waves or 51.6 years (8.6 x 6 = 51.6). I find this pattern interesting since the Lord established six days for man to work each week followed by a day of rest.
Martin Armstrong tested his theory by studying historical events, even going back to ancient Rome. He found the decline of the Roman currency, called the Bronze Follis, occurred during a 52-year period from 295 AD to 348 AD when a new currency was introduced, the Centionalis. His studies of centuries of economic history also helped him discover each wave of 51.6 years was part of an even longer cycle consisting of six waves forming a cycle lasting 309.6 years.
His studies found larger economic shifts occur at the end of longer cycles. He also found each 8.6-year cycle consists of three smaller waves with alternating lengths of 2.15 years and 1.075 years.
He formed this theory back in the 1970’s and called it the Economic Confidence Model. Since then he has been using it to forecast future economic events with great accuracy. In 1977 he applied his theory to successfully predict an upturn in the price of commodities. The image below shows a slide he presented back in 1998 showing his predictions for the period from 1998 to 2015.
His forecast proved accurate for the following events:
- The collapse of the Russian economy in 1998
- Prices of gold and oil hitting low points in 1999
- Technology (dot com) bubble in 2000
- S. share market hitting bottom in 2002
- Real estate bubble peaking in 2007 as oil breaks $100 barrel
- Sovereign debt crisis starting in 2009
- Decline of Japanese economy from 2011 – 2015
- Euro currency begins to crack from 2011 – 2015 due to debt crisis
The last item shown on his slide shows a sovereign debt big bang occurring 2015.75, which equates to October 1 2015. His model shows that date marks the end of an 8.6-year cycle and the end of a longer 51.6-year cycle, which is why he calls it the Big Bang. He has been warning about this Big Bang since 1985.
He shows the current 8.6-year cycle began on 2007.15, which equates to the 54th day of 2007, which is February 23 2007. That was the peak point of the real estate bubble, precisely to the day. The real estate market turned down on that day and crashed soon afterwards, ultimately leading to the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the stock market crash in September 2008.
His model showed the downward movement in real estate prices that began in 2007 would hit bottom in 2012 then recover some of the losses until 2015, which has proven to be correct so far. After 2015 his real estate cycle shows market prices dropping continually until 2033, ultimately returning back to 1955 levels. If this forecast is correct, real estate would no longer be the great investment our generation has known it to be.
The longer 51.6-year cycle ending October 1 2015 began on 1964.15, which is February 23 1964. That date marked the end of using real silver in coins. Copper and nickel coins went into circulation the following year.
His model shows the Big Bang beginning October 1 2015 will cause an economic downturn that will last more than four years, ending 2020.05, which is January 18 2020. He identifies the start of the sovereign debt crisis in 2009 as one of the major causes for the Big Bang. He posted the following explanation on his site back on June 16 2015:
There is a crisis unfolding in the bond markets right now. There is no bid for bonds and liquidity is vanishing rapidly. When the crack materializes, this is going to be so bad it is scary. This is BIG BANG in spades. (see complete report)
The crack he warned about in June materialized big time in September. A $405 billion bailout was required to cover an unprecedented liquidity crisis among financial institutions in September. I shared this in my previous post, Eight Signs the Shifting Has Begun, but here are the details again:
Something blew up in mid-September that required a massive short term injection of Treasury collateral into the repo market.
The blame on the general stock market plunge was cast on the Fed’s inability to raise interest rates. However that seems to be nothing more than a clever cover story for something much more catastrophic which began to develop out of sight in the general liquidity functions of the global banking system.
Without a doubt, the graphs above are telling us that something “broke” in the banking system, which necessitated the biggest injection of Treasury collateral in history into the global banking system by the Fed. (Source: Investment Research Dynamics)
Then last week Martin Armstrong posted the following comments regarding the Big Bang:
In this debt crisis, there is no bid for debt, which is typically how empires, nations, & city-states collapse.
The system is now highly geared and we will see in the months ahead that short-term rates rise when people begin to wake up and realize that this system is failing. The U.S. Congress tried to push the debt ceiling from the September 30 deadline, which was precisely the day of the ECM – 2015.75. They could not make it out to December. There is a war within Congress and this is critical, for if the debt ceiling fight gets much worse, then we may indeed begin to start the perception that this is not going to look very pretty the further we move from 2015.75. (See the full report)
Armstong’s Economic Confidence Model is not based on any particular market. He posted the following explanation:
The primary mistake many make with the Economic Confidence Model (ECM) is assuming it should be a perfect model for the stock market, gold, or some other market. It is a global model and does not track any individual market. It is tracking the phenomenon of international capital flows.
Capital concentrates into a single region and then into a single market. There is a cycle to this as well from within a region such as the hot market will be real estate, bonds, stocks, commodities, and then back to real estate. What makes a bubble is this concentration of capital. However, every market retains its own cycle and it is when that cycle lines up with the ECM that we get the big booms and busts.
The key to understanding the ECM is this global capital concentration. Hence, 1929 was a concentration of capital in the USA as money fled Europe and correctly so since they by and large defaulted on their national debts in 1931. This drove the dollar to historic highs, confused politicians who then adopted protectionism, all because capital was fleeing. Today, capital is fleeing Europe in fear of defaults once again.
Capital concentrates into a single sector within a single region. It is that concentration of capital that makes that market explode. (See his complete explanation)
Martin Armstrong’s Economic Confidence Model has a long string of accurate forecasts, but what caught my attention is the timing of his Big Bang coincides with what I believe the Lord showed me about an economic crash starting in 2015. I shared the details of that in my previous post, Warning: Sudden Economic Collapse Coming in 2015.
Personally, I believe the Lord has the most accurate economic forecast model available, but I always find it interesting when other experts agree with Him.
