Take a look at the following two articles.
BP chief Tony Hayward sold shares weeks before oil spill | via @ Telegraph http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/energy/oilandgas/7804922/BP-chief-Tony-Hayward-sold-shares-weeks-before-oil-spill.html
Fertile material for conspiracy theorists – yes?
It is a fact that a number of people made a lot of money out of the two disasters. Some conspiracy theorists reason back from the results of the disaster – some people made huge profits and the government hugely extended its surveillance and other powers over citizens lives – to the theory that 9/11 was a false flag operation – an inside job.
So while we are on the subject of conspiracy theories consider this possibility (my contribution to the conspiracy debate). Have you ever visited a gypsy fortune-teller? If you are African or Haitian ever consulted a witch doctor for advice about your future? Ever read a horoscope or consulted Tarot or I-Ching? You will be a rare person if you answer – no – and anyway it's all a con game, hokum, hocus pocus. You don't believe in it. Yet in the middle of the last century both the Soviet and USA invested millions in investigating psychic powers for military and espionage purposes. They have since told us they abandoned the research as it was a failure, and of course if a spy tells you something you can take it as truth.
But what if ….. What if the spies lied. If there existed such things as psychic powers, who do you think in society would make it their business to know about it and corner the market? And what would they do with it? Use it for a good purpose like preventing bad events from happening or minimising the damage? Or studying the future event to work out how to maximise their profits and extend their power?
These days of political correctness and multi-culturalism have been accompanied with extraordinary intolerance and harassment of Christians. Christians, of course, are quite clear in their minds about the spiritual position of psychic powers/magic/witchcraft – take your pick. They also accept that such powers are often the tools of hell because hell is our enemy and the enemy of God's creation. God totally forbids their use. Scriptures don't explain why but I suggest logical deduction provides the answer. The use of any such power can bring about the destruction of our world – our lives – in multiple ways. The destruction of our lives and our world is hell’s objective. If the ability existed to really know the future, the future would be destroyed. If members of our secretive elite had someone/s who could really predict the future – they might not seek to prevent the event from happening, but allow it to run its course while seeking to make as much profit, financially and power-wise, as possible. And they could also help themselves to the proceeds of any lottery going.
Christians have the antidote to such a dangerous experiment. Prayer. Just in case our immoral, greedy, feckless and reckless elite are using such destructive powers, all Christians should pray that God/the gods/divine powers seize/confiscate such powers and take them out of irresponsible government' hands.
Pray that the psychic powers of secret organisations will be taken away by the Divine.
