                    ***THE CHERNOBYL EXPERIMENT***

                              By J. Adams

                           April 23rd, 1996

       "...The  third  angel  sounded  and there fell a great star

    from heaven,  burning,  as it were a lamp,  and it fell on the

    third part of the rivers and upon the fountains of water;

       And the name of the star is Wormwood; and the third part of

    the  waters  became Wormwood,  and many men died of the waters

    because they were made bitter."

                         (Revelations 8:10-11)

       "The (Chernobyl) reactor was  consciously  driven  into  an

    extremely  dangerous  situation,  a  situation  known  for its

    dangers,  and then on top of  it  all  the  complete  security

    mechanisms  were  put  out  of  operation  - allegedly for the

    purpose of carrying  through  this  experiment,  even  if  the

    report  additionally  professes  that  at  least some of these

    switchoffs were not at  all  necessary  for  this  experiment.

    Under such conditions, according also to the knowledge of that

    time, one could not but know that one exposed the reactor to a

    dangerous   situation,   proceeding  from  which  unknown  big

    catastrophes became probable.  Nothing, nothing at all has the

    (Chernobyl)   catastrophe   to   do   with  a  coincidence  of

    unfortunate accidents.  On the contrary,  what  was  conducted

    there  must have lead directly to a ruinous accident,  exactly

    as driving a car with a speed of 140mph arround a corner  very

    probably leads to carrying the car out of the track."



    The Chernobyl disaster in the Soviet Ukraine on April 26, 1986 was

no accident.  To the contrary,  it was a sick,  intentional experiment

conducted  by  the  "former"  Communist government in Moscow to garner

knowledge about the effects of  radioactive  contamination.  For  what

reason?  To prepare to fight and survive a global nuclear war.

    For  those who have difficulty believing that Chernobyl was not an

accident, I suggest you first consider the rather profound connections

the reported "accident" had to astrology and biblical prophecy.

    On April 24th, 1986,  just preceding the fire and explosion at the

Chernobyl nuclear plant in the Soviet Ukraine, there was a total lunar

eclipse conjunct Pluto (the astrolog chart for  this  eclipse  and  an

excerpt from a related article I've written on "Kremlin Astrology" are

below).  At  first one might simply pass off as a coincidence the fact

that a  lunar  eclipse  occurred  in  connection  with  the  Chernobyl

disaster,  but what is key is that this eclipse was conjunct Pluto,  a

rare astronomic event.  What is even more significant  about  this  is

that  Pluto  is  the  planet  of explosive transformation and *nuclear

technology* (consider the word "pluto"nium).  Thus, Chernobyl happened

at  the  time  of  an  astrological  configuration  that   seemed   to

specifically  indicate  an explosive nuclear event.  This means people

in a position of  power,  i.e.,  Kremlin  leaders,  may  have  ordered

Chernobyl to occur at an astrologically appropriate time,  i.e.,  just

after the lunar eclipse conjunct Pluto on April 24th, 1986.

    If the evidence from astrology doesn't convince you that Chernobyl

was a planned rather than accidental event, consider the case that can

be made using biblical prophecy.  In the Bible's "Book of Revelation",

which  is  supposed  to  depict  the  fiery   conflict   called   "The

Apocalypse",  there  is  a  "Seventh  Seal" prophecy that many believe

specifically predicts a future nuclear war (see the  excerpt  from  my

article,  "The Truth",  below).  In this prophecy,  there is a passage

that mentions how the water will be poisoned by "Wormwood" (see above)

after  a  fiery  catastrophe.  This  is  most  interesting  since  the

Ukrainian word for "Wormwood" is "Chernobyl" (or  "Chornobyl",  as  is

explained in Mary Myco's article,  "A Legacy of Wormwood"- see below).

What this means is that the same powers who ordered Chernobyl to occur

at a *time* of ideal *astrological* significance also saw to  it  that

the disaster occurred at a *place* of key *prophetic* significance.

    Further  evidence  that  Chernobyl  was no accident comes from the

suspicious  circumstances  of the disaster.  As mentioned in the quote

above from "The 10th Anniversary  of  the  Chernobyl  Catatrophe:  The

decisive  facts  must at last be brought into the public" (see below),

the  series  of reported "mistakes" that went into the nuclear reactor

explosion at Chernobyl are literally *unbelievable*.  This is  because

what the world has been  told  is  a  lie.  Soviet  nuclear  personnel

intentionally  took  the  steps  necessary  to  generate a large-scale

explosion  at  the  Chernobyl  nuclear  power  plant.  As  the  author

explains:  "Nothing, nothing at all has the (Chernobyl) catastrophe to

do with a coincidence of unfortunate accidents.  On the contrary, what

was conducted there must have lead directly to a ruinous accident."

   Why would Kremlin authorities have staged the Chernobyl disaster?

    Most  likely  to  prepare  for fighting a nuclear war.  The events

that have been occurring according to  astrology  over  the  past  ten

years,  starting  with  the  Chernobyl  disaster,  appear to be geared

toward the outcome depicted in the Seventh Seal prophecy  of  a  fiery

Apocalypse, i.e., a future nuclear war.

    Chernobyl would have been a logical starting point  if,  in  1986,

Moscow  started  to  implement  a  multi-year plan,  say of ten years,

geared to fight and win a nuclear war against the West.  In  order  to

prepare  for  surviving  such a war,  the Kremlin first wanted to test

procedures and equipment that had been designed during  the  Cold  War

years  to  counter radioactive contamination and poisoning following a

nuclear war.  Also,  Communist leaders realized  the  need  to  garner

knowledge  about  the  immediate  and  lasting  effects of radioactive

contamination  on  people,  vegetation  and  livestock.   Accordingly,

during the mid-1980's, when Kremlin authorities decided to implement a

multi-year plan that would end in a nuclear war against the West, they

chose  to  first  stage  a  major nuclear disaster in the Ukraine as a

useful  preparatory  experiment.   From  this  diabolical  experiment,

Russian  scientists,  assisted by the West,  have gathered a wealth of

knowledge about the short-term and longer-term effects of radiation on

people, plants and animals.  Furthermore, the most effective equipment

and  procedures  have  been  developed  for  dealing  with radioactive

contamination and poisoning.  This,  of course,  will be of tremendous

value  if,  indeed,  Moscow  is planning to fight and survive a global

nuclear war.

NOTE:  For  those  of you who have a hard time accepting the idea that

Moscow is planning to wage a nuclear war against the West  based  upon

the  evidence  from  Chernobyl,  you  might  further  consider the new

underground command and control centre,  known as Kosvinskiy Mountain,

Russia  is  building  in  the  Ural mountains (see the related article

below or the recent New York Times article:  "Despite Cold War's  End,

Russia Keeps Building A Secret Complex";  4/16/96,  p.A1).  As US Navy

Admiral  William  Studeman,   former  Acting   Director   of   Central

Intelligence,  told  the  Senate  Armed  Services Committee last year:

"Preparedness for nuclear  conflict  with  the  United  States  -  not

withstanding  the  end of the Cold War - remains a resource allocation

priority (of Russia)." Why would this be  so  unless  the  Kremlin  is

planning to fight a nuclear war?

                    'Zodiac and the Cross of Nero;

               How Astrology Guides Gorbachev's Russia'

                              By J. Adams

                          December 15th, 1995

                       Updated: April 23rd, 1996

    Astrology  was originally developed in ancient Persia,  especially

by the Babylonians.  King  Zargon,  for  instance,  had  his  scholars

compile   a   seventy-two  volume  astronomical  treatise  called  the

"Illumination Of Bel (their god)",  in which the  prophecy  above  was

included.  Astrology  was  important  to  Babylonian Kings like Zargon

because it was used for making important policy  decisions  like  when

and where to wage wars.

    The  use  of astrology by powerful dictators to make key decisions

and time important moves did not stop with Babylonian Kings,  however.

It is now widely recognized that Adolph Hitler used astrology to guide

his  important  moves.  Hitler  shaped his political moves and foreign

policy decisions,  like the timing of military campaigns in waging the

second world war, according to the stars. (See, for instance, Wilhwelm

T.   Wulff's  'Zodiac  &  Swastika;   How  Astrology  Guided  Hitler's

Germany', 1973).

    Today the evil dictators and conquerors of  the  world  are  again

relying   on   astrology   to   guide   their   moves.   Specifically,

*Gorbachev's* Russia (I believe Gorbachev is still the leading  figure

behind  the  scenes  in  Moscow today),  Saddam Hussein's Iraq and the

other authoritarian powers of the East are likely using the  stars  to

guide  a  multi-year  plan  to militarily destroy the West and thereby

conquer the world.  Thus,  upon  close  examination,  one  finds  that

almost all of the key events in Russia,  Iraq,  the former-Yugoslavia,

Chechnya, so on and so forth, over the past decade have coincided with

significant,  relatively rare astrological configurations.  (Note that

the  leadership  of the "opposing" factions in places like the former-

Yugoslavia and Chechnya are former Communist elite.  Thus,  no  matter

how much the opposite may appear to be the case, they are still likely

receiving their orders from the Kremlin.  That the Kremlin may control

all  sides  of  "staged"  conflicts  in  places  like the Chechnya was

revealed by KGB defector Anatoliy  Golitsyn  in  his  book  'New  Lies

For Old'.)

So  that  the use of astrology by the Kremlin and authoritarian powers

of the East is clear,  please consider the following examples of where

key    events   coincided   with   significant,    rare   astrological


1.  *April 24th, 1986:  Total eclipse of the Moon conjunct Pluto.

      The following evening the Chernobyl disaster,  which was  likely

 no  accident  but  rather  a  sick experiment to garner knowledge for

 fighting a nuclear war, occurred in the Ukraine.

    Notably this configuration involved  the  planet  Pluto  which  is

 supposed   to  represent  explosive  events  and  nuclear  technology

 ("Pluto" is the root of the world "pluto"nium).

2.  *July 22nd, 1990:  Total solar eclipse.

    Marked when Iraq began massing forces on the Kuwaiti  border  just

 prior to the 1990 invasion.

3.  *August 2nd thru 7th, 1990:  Lunar eclipse squares Mars and Pluto.

    In  the  Market  Watch  section  of  the July 16th,  1990 issue of

 'Barron's',  there is an excerpt from  the  newsletter  of  financial

 astrologer Arch Crawford.  It reads in part:

   "...Aug.  6  (Lunar  Eclipse  squares Mars + Pluto).  Expect some

   major catastrophe on  that  last  one,  Aug.  2-7,  as  something

   explodes in a big way...  Astronomically similar to the Chernobyl


    On August 2nd,  Iraq invaded Kuwait precipitating the Persian Gulf


4.  *January 15th, 1991: Solar eclipse with rare 6-planet alignment in

                         Capricorn (note:  in astrology  the  Sun  and

                         Moon are considered planets).

    January 15th,  1991 was the U.N.  deadline for Iraq to pull-out of

 Kuwait  before  the  allied  attack a day later- the beginning of the

 Gulf War.

     According to  an  ancient  Babylonian  prophecy,  "when  all  the

 planets  meet  in Capricorn the world will be destroyed by fire".  In

 January of 1991,  there was a six-planet alignment in Capricorn,  and

 Venus,  Jupiter  and  Pluto were heavily aspected in Capricorn and in

 tension with each other.  Thus,  from the perspective of  someone  in

 Iraq  and the site of ancient Babylon,  their "world was destroyed by

 fire" exactly as forecast in this astrological  prophecy  (see  Moira

 Timms' 'Beyond Prophecies and Predictions', pp.206 & 209).

5. *June 26th, 1991: Lunar eclipse of lunar/solar eclipse pair.  Also,

                     Pluto  was  squared  (90-degree  angle)   by   an

                     alignment of Venus, Mars and Jupiter.

    Marked the beginning of the civil war in Yugoslavia.

6.  *August 19th, 1991:  Alignment of Sun,  Moon,  Mercury,  Venus and

                         Jupiter in the zodiac sign of Leo.

    A  failed coup attempt by communist hardliners is staged in Moscow

 which supposedly brings an end to  the  Communist  Party  and  Soviet


7.  *December 21st, 1991:  Lunar eclipse on the winter solstice.

    The Soviet flag comes down and the Russian flag is raised over the

 Kremlin as the Soviet Union is officially disbanded.

    A  few  days  after  this,  on  Christmas day (?!),  Soviet leader

 Mikhail Gorbachev resigned.

8.  *June 30th, 1992: Solar eclipse of lunar/solar eclipse pair.  This

                      eclipse  was  aligned  with  Venus,  Uranus  and

                      Neptune  and sextiled (60-degree angle) Mars and


    First  U.N.   forces  arrive  in  Sarajevo  as  Western   military

 intervention in the former-Yugoslavia begins.

9.  *October 4th, 1993:  Pluto conjunct Moon squares (90-degree angle)

                         Saturn and trines (120-degree  angle)  Venus,

                         Uranus and Neptune.

    Political chaos erupts in Moscow following Russian President Boris

 Yeltsin's disbanding of the former-Soviet parliament.

10.  *December 13th, 1993:  Alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and

                            Mars in Sagitarrius.

    Communists and Nationalists win the elections for  a  new  Russian

 parliament.  Of  particular  surprise  is the success of the "Liberal

 Democratic  Party  (?!)  led  by  Hitler-like  nationalist   Vladimir


11. *January 12th, 1994:     Rare  seven-planet alignment in Capricorn

                             (five planets  and  the  sun  and  moon).

                             Tightest  alignment  of  seven planets in

                             300 years.

     U.S./Russia summit at which the superpowers sign an agreement  to

 no longer target each other with nuclear weapons.

    Alignment  also coincides with increased Serb shelling of Sarajevo

 and a NATO summit meeting at which the Western allies  agree  to  use

 force  in  the  former-Yugoslavia.  Within  a  month  the  first NATO

 ultimatum was issued for the withdrawal of Serb heavy  weaponry  from

 around a Sarajevan "safe-zone".

12.  *November 18th, 1994:  Lunar eclipse of solar/lunar eclipse pair.

                            Eclipse is aligned with Pluto and Jupiter,

                            squares  (90-degree angle) Mars and trines

                            (120-degree angle) Uranus and Neptune.

    Croatian Serb warplanes bomb the U.N.-protected Bihac  enclave  in

 violation of a NATO-enforced "no-fly zone".  NATO responds by bombing

 Serb positions. This is the first major use of military force against

 the  Serbs by NATO in the Balkan conflict  and  the  first  offensive

 military  action  ever  taken  by  NATO in the 45-year history of the


13. *December 11th, 1994: Mars squares conjunction of Pluto & Jupiter.

     Russia invades the breakaway republic of Chechnya.

14.  *April 29th, 1995:   Solar eclipse of lunar/solar  eclipse  pair.

                          Eclipse squares Neptune and Uranus.

    Croatian  Serb  warplanes bomb the U.N.-protected Bihac enclave in

 Bosnia in violation of a NATO enforced "no-fly zone" once again.  The

 Balkan war heats-up as a five-month cease-fire comes to an end.

 (Notably,  this  was  the first eclipse pair subsquent to the pair in

 November of 1994 which marked  the  only  other  time  Croatian  Serb

 warplanes bombed Bihac- both before and since.)

15.  *June 14th, 1995:  Mars squares alignment of Mercury,  Venus  and

                        and Jupiter.

    Similar to  configuration  on  December  11th,  1994  when  Russia

 invaded Chechnya.  This time,  a large group of Chechen rebels attack

 a town in southern Russia and take several hundred  patients  hostage

 at a hospital.  The incident ends violently with hundreds of Russians


16.  *July 12th, 1995:    Alignment of Sun,  Moon,  Neptune and Uranus

                          trines (120-degree angle) Mars and  sextiles

                          (60-degree angle) Saturn and Pluto.

    Russian  President Boris Yeltsin reportedly suffers a heart attack

 while Bosnian Serb  forces  overrun  the  U.N.-protected  enclave  of


17. *October 24th, 1995:   Mars and Pluto conjunct total solar eclipse.

    Russian President Boris Yetsin suffers a second heart attack since

 which he has still not recovered.

18.  *November 22nd, 1995:   7-planet alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury,

                             Venus,   Mars,   Jupiter   and  Pluto  in


    Serbs do a total about-face  and  reach  a  peace  agreement  with

 Bosnian and Croatian representatives at peace talks in Dayton,  Ohio.

 Some 60,000 NATO troops start heading into the  former-Yugoslavia  to

 take over the peace-keeping mission from the United Nations.

19.  *December 21st/22nd, 1995:    Clustering of  all  planets  in  or

                                   near  Capricorn  around the time of

                                   the winter solstice.

    Communists and nationalists win Russian parliamentary elections.

20.  *January 15th,  1996:  Moon  squares  alignment  of  Earth,  Sun,

                            Mercury, Mars and Uranus.

    Russian  forces  storm Chechen rebels holding hostages in southern


21.  *February 26th,  1996:  Sun conjunct Mars T-squares Pluto and the

                             moon,   which   are  in  opposition  (180

                             degrees apart).

    Configuration is similar to the one that marked when Iraq  invaded

 Kuwait  in August of 1990.  Notably,  February 26th is also the fifth

 anniversary of Kuwait's liberation from Iraqi occupation and the  end

 of the Gulf War.

    Wave  of terrorist bombings against Israel occur starting February

 25th as the Arabs begin to unravel the  false  peace  that  has  been

 established in the Middle East.

22.  *April 3rd, 1996:  Total lunar eclipse conjunct Mars and squared

                        by Jupiter.

    North Korea pulls out of the Korean War Armistice and then carries

 out  a  series  of  provocative armed incursions in the Demilitarized

 Zone separating the two Koreas.

                              "The Truth"

                              By J. Adams

                             October, 1994

     In  discussing  my  views  concerning a future surprise world war

 involving a nuclear holocaust triggered by  conflict  in  the  Middle

 East,  I  have  noticed  that  many  people  respond  by  saying  I'm

 predicting the "end of the world".  I then point out that I  did  not

 mention  biblical  prophecy.  Yet,  most  people  are  quick  to draw

 parallels between Christian predictions of an  Apocalypse  and  world

 war three (of course,  Jewish, Moslem, and most other world religions

 have their  own  prophetic  versions  of  the  Apocalypse).  This  is

 important  because I personally do believe that the global conflict I

 expect is,  indeed,  that which is predicted in the Bible.  In  fact,

 while  trying  to  determine what could cause the epic crash that now

 appears to be imminent, I, along with friends,  went through what can

 only  be  logically  classified as a private revelation that clued me

 into just how "The Crash" would most likely occur.

     Specifically,  the revelation I went through had to do  with  the

 seventh  seal  prophecy  from  the  eighth  chapter  of  the  Book of

 Revelation.  This prophecy is the  key  to  the  revelation  of  "The

 Truth"  in  the  context  of  the  Apocalypse  (the  word  apocalypse

 literally means "revelation").  After the seventh and final  seal  is

 broken  in  the  Book of Revelation,  the Apocalypse is unleashed and

 "The Truth" is revealed.  Thus,  the meaning behind the seventh  seal

 prophecy is of the utmost prophetic importance...

          When  the Lamb opened the seventh seal,  (1) there was

       silence in heaven for about half an hour.  Then I saw the

       seven angels who stand before  God,  and  seven  trumpets

       were  given to them.  And another angel came and stood at

       the alter with a golden censer;  and he  was  given  much

       incense to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon

       the golden altar before the throne;  and the smoke of the

       incense rose with the prayers of the saints from the hand

       of the angel before God.  Then the angel took the  censer

       and  filled  it  with fire from the altar and threw it on

       the earth;  and (2) there were  peals  of  thunder,  loud

       noises, flashes of lightening, and an earthquake.

          Now  the  seven angels who had the seven trumpets made

       ready to blow them.

          The first  angel  blew  his  trumpet,  and  (3)  there

       followed hail and fire,  mixed with blood,  which fell on

       the earth;  and a third of the earth was burnt up,  and a

       third of the trees were burnt up, and all green grass was

       burnt up.

          The  second angel blew his trumpet,  and (4) something

       like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into

       the sea;  and a third of the sea became blood, a third of

       the living creatures in the sea died,  and a third of the

       ships destroyed.

          The third angel blew his trumpet, and (5) a great star

       fell from heaven, blazing like a torch,  and it fell on a

       third  of  the rivers and on the fountains of water.  The

       name of the star is  Wormwood.  A  third  of  the  waters

       became wormwood,  and many men died of the water, because

       it was made bitter.

          The fourth angel blew his trumpet,  and (6) a third of

       the sun was struck,  and a third of the moon, and a third

       of the  stars,  so  that  a  third  of  their  light  was

       darkened;  a third of the day was kept from shining,  and

       likewise a third of the night.

          Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud

       voice, as it flew in midheaven, "Woe,  woe,  woe to those

       who  dwell  on  the  earth,  at  the  blasts of the other

       trumpets which the three angels are about to blow!"

     I have long believed that this  prophecy  is  a  depiction  of  a

 future  nuclear war.  Even though it was written some 2000 years ago,

 it  accurately  describes  each  major  phase  of  a  global  nuclear


 1.  The  half  hour  of "silence in heaven" during which ICBM's would

    traverse  their  orbits  before  striking  targets   after   being


 2.  The thunderous reports, bright flashes, and earthquake associated

    with nuclear detonations.

 3.  The nuclear blasts of "hail and fire,  mixed with blood" followed

    by raging fires that would consume much of the earth.

 4.  The nuclear explosions,  "like a  great  mountain,  burning  with

    fire",  all over the world's seas as ports,  ships, and submarines

    are attacked.

 5.  The lethal contamination of water supplies by radioactive fallout

    ("Wormwood") for weeks after a nuclear war.

 6.  The blanketing of the sky by vast dust clouds after a nuclear war

    such that sunlight,  moonlight,  and starlight is obscured thereby

    causing a "nuclear winter".

     Over  the  years  my  conviction  has  grown  that  this prophecy

 predicts  a  future  nuclear  war.  First  off,  the  1986  Chernobyl

 disaster  in the Ukraine helped reveal the truth behind the prophecy.

 This is because,  as I later found out,  the Ukrainian word  for  the

 bitter  herb  "wormwood",  which  poisons  water  in the seventh seal

 prophecy,  is "Chernobyl"  (easily  referenced-  see,  for  instance:

 'Chernobyl' (1987), by Andrey Illesh).

     If  this were not enough,  in February of 1991,  in the middle of

 the Gulf War,  a couple of friends and I had some  rather  remarkable

 experiences  that  I believe confirmed the meaning of the prophecy as

 well as indicated its imminent fulfillment.  First off,  on  February

 6th,  I saw a special report of a chemical SCUD attack on Israel that

 did not exist (believe me,  I checked it out fully;  the  report  was

 never aired).  Then,  about a week later, I was with a friend of mine

 who had just become interested in  Nostradamus  and  prophecies  that

 might be connected with the Gulf War.  After showing him some books I

 had  on  Nostradamus,  I  began reading him the seventh seal prophecy

 above.  Just as I began reading it,  we  heard  an  air-  raid  siren

 followed  by  the  bellowed  percussion  of a nuclear explosion.  The

 authenticity of the experience led me to rush with  my  friend  to  a

 deep basement in a nearby building.  From there I contacted the local

 fire department to see if any sirens had been sounded;  however, none

 had.  After returning to our original location, my friend and I began

 checking with others to see if anyone else  had  heard  anything.  No

 one  else  had.   However,  another  friend  of  mine,  who  is  very

 trustworthy,  said that he had heard no air-raid siren that  evening-

 he  had heard one that afternoon.  When I asked him whether or not it

 could have been a fire alarm, he responded: "No, it was distinctly an

 air-raid siren off in the distance".

     Needless to  say,  these  extraordinary  experiences  led  me  to

 conclude  that  the  conflict  in  the  Persian Gulf might somehow be

 linked to a future global nuclear war- an event that  would  fit  the

 ultimate crash I have been anticipating.  Thus, I began to critically

 reexamine  the  events that had been taking place in the Gulf,  and I
