Even though the U.S. Supreme Court turned down an emergency appeal from a New Jersey man (who says the President-Elect is ineligible to be president because he was a British subject at birth), serious doubt and legitimate concerns continue regarding the actual birthplace of the Chosen One, Barack Hussein Obama.
At the time of his birth, his mother (the Virgin Ann), was American and his Kenyan father at the time was a British subject. There appears to be evidence that the President-Elect was indeed born in Kenya, then moved to Hawaii. Other reports indicate that the Messiah Obama may have been born in Indonesia.
The U.S. Constitution, Article 2, “Executive Branch”, Section 1, “The President”, clearly states the following: ‘No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.’
Fuel to the fire came from Obama’s campaign, during his run for the Presidency, when it was proven that the birth certificate document presented (claiming he was born in Hawaii), was indeed a forgery. According to many legal scholars, although the U.S. Supreme Court chose not to take the case, Obama still may face serious challenges.
Meanwhile, in a related story it appears that a team of researchers, headed by Australian astronomer Dave Reneke, claim that a bright star which appeared over Bethlehem 2,000 years ago pinpointed the date of Christ's birth as June 17 rather than December 25.
The researchers claim the 'Christmas Star' was most likely a magnificent conjunction of the planets Venus and Jupiter, which were so close together they would have shone unusually brightly as a single "beacon of light" which appeared suddenly.
The team used complex computer software to chart the exact positions of all celestial bodies and map the night sky as it would have appeared over the Holy Land more than 2,000 years ago.
It revealed a spectacular astronomical event around the time of Jesus's birth. Reneke says the wise men probably interpreted it as the sign they had been waiting for, then followed the 'star' to Christ's birthplace in a stable in Bethlehem, as described in the Bible.
Generally accepted research has placed the nativity to somewhere between 3BC and 1AD.
Using the St Matthew's Gospel as a reference point, Mr Reneke pinpointed the planetary conjunction, which appeared in the constellation of Leo, to the exact date of June 17 in the year 2BC.
Mr Reneke, who is editor of Sky and Space magazine, said: 'We have software that can recreate the night sky exactly as it was at any point in the last several thousand years”, and adds, 'We are not saying this was definitely the Christmas star - but it is the strongest explanation for it of any I have seen so far.”
Following the release of this incredible historic finding, a brilliant proclamation was made by members of the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London, when they concluded that: “If the Australian team is correct, it would mean Jesus was a Gemini, not a Capricorn as previously believed.”
