Default Paul the Octopus is “Of Satan” - 07-10-2010, 12:08 AM

Octopuses Octopi Octopii These creatures are abominations:

Le:11:12: Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

Name:  Octopus.jpg
Views: 811
Size:  40.0 KB

Many of you will have seen this fish, which is owned and operated by the Germans. It is in the news because it can apparently predict the future. In the Soccer World Cup somewhere in Africa, this creature has correctly predicted the results of 5 matches;
  • Germany v. Serbia, Germany lose - God’s warning against divination
  • Germany v. Ghana, Germany win - Satan tightens his hold but God watches the sinners
  • Germany v. England, Germany win - Satan is laughing but God starts to be wrathful
  • Germany v. Argentina, Germany win - Satan has hold of the German soul but God has waxed wrathful
  • Germany v. Spain. This was the match that would decide who would progress to the next round. Germany loses!

Many of you will think, “Oh! How amusing, an Octopus with magical powers."

Not at all, God has left Germany, He has become their enemy and just at the point at which a victory was needed, He smote them with a great smittance! He delivered the flower of their manhood unto the Euro-Messicants!

How does the Octopus do it? He is channelling the spirits of the dead. Conjuring from their graves and forcing them to divulge secrets known only to them. God leaves such people to defeat and misery!

How do we know this? 1Sa:28:3 - 25

In this chapter we see King Saul who has just banished witches from his kingom but now sees an army of Philistines arrayed against him. He prays to The Lord but receives no reply. He panics and seeks out The Witch of Endor! And, guaranteeing her safety, he asks her to conjure the prophet Samuel from his grave.

(This is exactly the same as having an octopus predict the outcome of a soccer match)

She does this and Samuel appears!
1Sa:28:15: And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do.
1Sa:28:16: Then said Samuel, Wherefore then dost thou ask of me, seeing the LORD is departed from thee, and is become thine enemy?

Now if the Lord is thy enemy, all is lost, and Saul knows it. We have to wait until Ch30 to hear the confirmed result
[…]

1Sa:30:1: And it came to pass, when David and his men were come to Ziklag on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the south, and Ziklag, and smitten Ziklag, and burned it with fire;
1Sa:30:2: And had taken the women captives, that were therein: they slew not any, either great or small, but carried them away, and went on their way.
1Sa:30:3: So David and his men came to the city, and, behold, it was burned with fire; and their wives, and their sons, and their daughters, were taken captives.

Indeed, The Lord was displeased with Saul and thus his defeat was assured. He was defeated as he had lacked faith and had disobeyed the Lord’s Commands.

I seriously doubt that when the German team get home that any of their wives and children will be there.




Ec:7:16: Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?

It's even worse. He predicted almost all matches correctly 2 years ago as well. I will pray that his next prediction will turn out to be wrong so people will stop paying attention to this puppet of Satan!

I'm sure that this whole thing is rigged. The operators try to make it look even, but even I know that they put Lawry's seasoning in the box that has the better odds. No octopus can resist that.


May you be a blessing to every life you touch.

Where do those awful things come from?

Do nuns birth them in convents?



Jud 1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are unGodly among them of all their unGodly deeds which they have unGodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which unGodly sinners have spoken against him.

Paul the Octopus, like all creatures with more than 4 legs or tentacles, is pure evil. Once his next prediction turns out to be wrong (which has the unfortunate side effect of Holland becoming world champion) I am sure he will be killed and forgotten.

This 8-legged bag of evil, minion of the Anti-Christ, again consulted the Dead and foretold that Uruguay would lose against Germany. It came to pass. Now the beast says Spain will win!

I was looking for an explanation in the Bible, God's Revealed Word, and did not find one. So it was fortunate that Nephew Zebulun came round; he knows about such things as this.

Her explained that God did in fact have a Plan. It was along the lines of "The Three Card Trick".

Puzzled? Never heard of it? Neither had I, so Nephew Zebulun said he would demonstrate:

A card-sharp (Zebulun took this part) will take 3 cards, one of which will be a Queen. He will then place the cards on his table and shuffle them around. To win, the mark (e.g. me) has to say which one is the Queen.

(Zebulun demonstrated this with a pack of cards he said he had seized from a den of vice.)

The card-sharp let's you win 3 or 4 times (Ha! I did! $50 each time!) then proposes a huge bet on the next go, succumbing to greed, you agree. (Which I did for the sake of the experiment.)

Zebulun won the final trick and left with $5,000 of mine.

Apparently, the same will happen to those who bet on Spain. That is God's plan. I must say it's a little harsh, I had plans for that $5,000.

Put Paul in the pot.
I would plump for a simple recipe were basically you braise the octopus in its own juices, then cut it into pieces and dress it with a paprika-garlic sauce when it is still warm. This is a variant of a Spanish recipe known as "a la gallega." Any size octopus will work with this recipe, which serves 4 as a starter or tapas.

Isn't Octopus like Calamari though, the bigger the animal the tougher it is? I think Paul would be equivalent of chewing on a Goodyear about now.

Amazing, Paul the Octopus was correct again. All his predictions turned out to be correct. Apparently God hates Holland more than He hates this octopus. I am certain this octopus will die in a few days. Does anyone know where he lives?

The octopus has 8 legs, could it actually be ''the spider of the sea''? If so the Bible fortells the octopus getting the picks correct. Please consider Proverbs 30. 24-28 as it says

24: There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:
25: The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;
26: The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;
27: The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
28: The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces.


1 Chronicles 16:15
Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations ... an everlasting covenant.
Proverbs 30:5,6: Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Paul's handlers were wise and 'retired' him before their scam could be found out.
Quote:
Paul the octopus receives his trophy
An octopus credited with psychic powers is to retire from making predictions following his World Cup success, his owners say. Paul will go back to his old job "making children laugh", a spokeswoman for the German aquarium said.

The octopus correctly predicted the outcomes of all seven of Germany's games plus the Spain-Netherlands final. As a reward, aquarium staff presented him with his very own replica World Cup trophy garnished with his favourite food - mussels.

Tanja Munzig, of the Sea Life Aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen, said they had received offers for Paul but he was not for sale. "There are a lot of offers for Paul from betting offices and other areas. One thing is clear: Paul is staying with us," she said. She added he would now "step back from the official oracle business". "He won't give any more oracle predictions - either in football, or in politics, lifestyle or economy. Paul will get back to his former job, namely making children laugh."

Paul made his uncanny predictions for each game by choosing a mussel from one of two jars bearing the flags of World Cup opponents. The two-year-old cephalopod quickly became a worldwide celebrity. Seemingly unimpressed with his star status, Paul at first ignored the golden trophy - adorned with three mussels - placed in his tank.

But after several minutes he finally picked off a mussel and devoured it in front of TV cameras.
Does anyone know the odds of correctly picking all of those games?


May you be a blessing to every life you touch.

Assuming the mussels presented to the octopus were 'equivalent' (how do you tell?) and that Paul was not picking up any cues from the people in the area, the odds for each game would be 50/50.

I am also assuming Satan takes no interest in how or why the octopus does what it does, and foreknowledge of the octopus's prediction does not influence the players on the field.


So, for guessing correctly 7 times, the odds are just about 1%.


Keep in mind though, you only heard about the octopus that managed all seven, 14 cats were also taking stabs at the game, and the best cat got 6 right, but 4 cats missed them all. There were also several goldfish used for this, and some dogs, a goat and don't forget the newt at Detwiler Middle School. You only heard about the octopus because he got them all right.


Jud 1:15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are unGodly among them of all their unGodly deeds which they have unGodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which unGodly sinners have spoken against him.

World Cup Puzzles: Why Call It 'Soccer,' and How Does the Octopus Do It?

By PETER COHAN Posted 5:00 PM 07/11/10 People, Media
Comments: 2 Print Text Size A A A EmailMore






Sunday's final World Cup match between Spain and the Netherlands got me thinking. Since the global tournament started last month, two things I've read about it have caught my attention: First, the origin of the word "soccer" -- a term used for the game in only a few countries -- and second, the chances that Paul the Octopus could correctly predict the outcome of seven matches.

It's well known that Americans like football, baseball and basketball more than soccer. And those games are set up to be more profitable for broadcasters since they all have built-in pauses that leave time for commercials. But I have often wondered why Americans call the game soccer instead of football.

"Soccer" Came From Britain

The British have a habit of shortening words and adding "er" to the end of them. They called Rugby players Ruggers and had a league of football players called Association Football that was fighting with others British leagues in the 1860s for football predominance, according to the New Yorker. The British shortened the word Association -- picking out the letters "soc" -- and created the term soccer in the same vein. I have no idea how that term ended up in the U.S.

As far as Paul the Octopus is concerned -- the German octopus who has been lowered into a tank of water with two boxes containing mussels -- one with a German flag and one with that of Germany's World Cup opponent -- I was wondering how to calculate the odds of his amazing predictive feat. By landing on the box with the flag of the ultimate winner, so far, Paul has correctly predicted six matches in which Germany played. (His prediction of Germany's loss to Spain brought Paul death threats from German fans.)

Why Paul Has a 1-in-128 Chance of Correctly Predicting Seven Outcomes

Since Paul is only predicting wins or losses -- and assuming he makes his choices at random instead of knowing the outcome ahead of time -- those six matches had 64 possible outcomes, and the chances of correctly predicting what happened in each of them come out to one in 64.

How so? According to BBC News, the chances of Paul predicting the outcome of the first game were 1 in 2, the first and second were 1 in 4, and the chances of correctly predicting first, second, and third came in at 1 in 8. The general formula is 1/[2 to the nth power] where n is the number of matches.

As it turns out, Paul is predicting a win for Spain in Sunday's match against the Netherlands. If Spain wins as Paul predicts, it's worth noting that his chances of doing so are 1 in 128.

Should You Bet on Paul's Spain Prediction?

So should gamblers take their cue from Paul? It seems highly likely that many will. And why not? Paul has been right in six of the last matches where he's made a prediction. Many bettors will wager that his past success boosts his chances of correctly predicting Sunday's outcome.

Moreover, people who set odds for a living in the sportsbook are agreeing with Paul -- "listing Spain as +115 favorites on the moneyline [-- how much money a $100 bet would return --] to beat the Dutch, who have +240 moneyline odds," according to BetUS.

In fact, Paul only has a 1-in-2 chance of being correct today -- that is -200 in moneyline terms (since it's negative it measures how much one would have to bet to make $100).

The interesting thing to consider is that Paul is probably no worse at predicting World Cup outcomes than are money managers at picking stocks that will go up in value. That may be why stock pickers are required to offer legal boilerplate that past performance is no predictor of future results.

Paul's prediction on a Spain win today comes with no such legal disclaimer.

Bid to hire Paul the octopus as a bookie

  • From: AFP
  • July 19, 2010 5:34PM

A RUSSIAN betting firm wants to buy soothsaying World Cup octopus Paul and hire him as a bookmaker with a salary of $US5000 ($A5775) a month.


"He will be one of our 120 staff employees," Oleg Zhuravsky, co-owner of Bet League, told Soviet Sport newspaper.

Zhuravsky added: "Our specialists receive around $US3000 ($A3465) a month. So we will pay Paul $US5,000 ($A5,775)."

Paul earned superstar status by correctly predicting the results of all of Germany's games, including its semi-final defeat to Spain. He also was right in forecasting Spain's victory in the final.

Zhuravsky said he was ready to pay the Sea Life oceanarium attraction in the German city of Oberhausen, where the eight-legged oracle lives, as much as 100,000 euros ($A148,809).

Zhuravsky's company is set to sign an exclusive agreement with the Russian Premier League in the near future.

Under the deal, 50 per cent of the bookmaking company's profits will be earmarked for the development of football in the country.


2 Chronicles 7:14
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land Australia.
