Kolbe Report 10-5-19

Dear Friends of the Kolbe Center,

Pax Christi!

In a previous newsletter we saw that the whole agenda for the imminent Amazonian Synod depends on the assumed truth of the molecules-to-man evolution mythology. In this newsletter, we will see that blind faith in the same evolutionary mythology lies behind the global push for a 5G network that will blanket the entire Earth in radiation from pole to pole. The most widely-cited “Catholic” authority for evolution-based utopian fantasies, Fr. Teilhard de Chardin, confessed his complete confidence in man’s ability to steer the evolution of the Earth and mankind to a utopian Omega-point-perfection in the future. Enraptured by the possibilities opened up by atomic fission and the detonation of the first atomic bomb, Teilhard asked:

Was it not simply the first act, even a mere prelude, in a series of fantastic events which, having afforded us access to the heart of the atom, would lead us on to overthrow, one by one, the many other strongholds which science is already besieging? The vitalization of matter by the creation of super-molecules. The remodeling of the human organism by means of hormones. Control of heredity and sex by manipulation of genes and chromosomes. The readjustment and internal liberation of our souls by direct action upon springs gradually brought to light by psychoanalysis. The arousing and harnessing of the unfathomable intellectual and effective powers still latent in the human mass.[1]


In the fifty years since The Future of Mankind was published, the world has seen plenty of “remodeling of the human organism by means of hormones” in the form of birth control pills – resulting in the deaths of a quarter of a billion tiny children each year by conservative estimates, five times the number of children murdered in surgical abortions. During the same period, the world has witnessed an orgy of “control of heredity and sex” not so much by the manipulation of genes as by the destruction of tens of millions of little girls (for the crime of being girls) and of children of both sexes for the crime of having some real or imagined genetic defect. And as to the “liberation of our souls” through “psychoanalysis,” there is no doubt that the psychologist and psychiatrist have replaced the priest and confessor as the liberators of souls, offering secular humanist counseling and drugs in place of Catholic teaching and the life-giving sacraments. Moreover, the fulfillment of Teilhard’s vision has been accomplished in large part through the work of that “last great hope for concord and peace,” the United Nations.

Towards the Omega Point

Since “the stuff of which grace is made is strictly biological,” in Teilhard’s system, it is not a gift of participation in the divine nature, conferred upon our first parents at creation or restored to souls through baptism. It is a by-product of evolution. Even Christ is “saved by evolution” since His incarnation is a product of the same evolutionary process by which He, according to Teilhard, evolves the entire universe to its cosmic fulfillment. Indeed, in this system, even atheists participate in the evolutionary process which propels them along with adherents of the Catholic religion towards the “Omega point.” Of Marxism and Christianity, Teilhard wrote:

The two extremes confronting us at the moment, the Marxist and the Christian, each a convinced believer in his own particular doctrine . . . [must be] we must suppose, fundamentally inspired with an equal faith in Man . . . Is it not incontestable that despite all ideological differences they will eventually, in some manner, come together on the same summit? . . . for in the nature of things everything that is faith must rise, and everything that rises must converge.[2]

Here we see the inversion of the true Catholic understanding of human history.   According to all of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church, God created a perfectly beautiful, complete, and harmonious universe for us, in our first parents Adam and Eve, in the beginning, who, in turn, were created in a state of physical, mental and spiritual perfection. After the Fall of Adam introduced human death, deformity and disease into the first-created world, Our Lord Jesus Christ suffered, died and rose from the dead to atone for our sins. Then He founded the Holy Catholic Church and invited us poor sinners to be born again as members of His Mystical Body so that we could cooperate with Him in “restoring all things in Christ.” In this way we can restore all things to their original perfection and help to bring them to an even greater final perfection through the working of the Holy Ghost.


The authentic Catholic understanding of history teaches us to recognize the goodness of God’s creation and to see the disorders in nature as the consequences of sin. From this perspective, wise stewardship of God’s creation requires that we respect His design in nature. From the perspective of evolutionary mythology, however, nature is the result of an undirected evolutionary process, so man is obliged to intervene and “correct nature’s mistakes” according to his understanding of what is best for the biosphere. Indeed, from the mythical evolutionary perspective, man is not “fearfully and wonderfully made.” He is the result of hundreds of millions of years of mutation and natural selection. His eyes are “wired backwards” and his body is full of non-functional organs and features left over from the mythical millions of years of evolution. According to this view, man with his wonderful intellect – as demonstrated by his ability to produce labor-saving technology – can improve on the products of an unguided evolutionary process. Technology can even be the means by which man accelerates his own evolution to the Omega point.

5G Network: Boon or Bane?

This is the world-view that lies behind the world-wide push for a 5G network that will blanket the entire Earth with radiation so that high-speed internet connectivity will exist from pole to pole and in the most inaccessible regions of the Earth, such as the interior of the Amazonian jungle. Opposition to this “quantum leap forward” in global connectivity has arisen even within some segments of the evolution-believing community who argue that it took “evolution” hundreds of millions of years to evolve the biosphere with its current levels of radiation and to adapt man’s body to that biosphere, so that it would be foolish to disturb the balance that “evolution” took so long to achieve. This view obviously suffers from incoherence, since its evolution-believing proponents oppose man’s intelligent modification of an environment which they themselves admit arose through an unguided evolutionary process. Nevertheless, the empirical evidence that some of them cite of the harm that 5G radiation inflicts on the human body and mind can and should be integrated into a coherent Catholic framework.

One of the scientists who has most thoroughly documented the danger to humanity of 5G radiation is Dr. Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University. Dr. Pall has documented the effects of electro-magnetic radiation on living things, especially at the cellular level:

EMFs act by activating channels in the membrane that surrounds each of our cells, called voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs). The EMFs put forces on the voltage sensor that controls the VGCCs of about 7.2 million times greater than the forces on other charged groups in our cells. This is why weak EMFs have such large biological effects on the cells of our bodies! EMFs works this way not only on human and diverse animal cells but also in plant cells so that this is a universal or near universal mechanism of action. Thousands of published studies show biological and health effects from electromagnetic fields. We now know the mechanism that can explain these effects. The mechanism is a function of the electromagnetics of each cell – not solely about heating effects from the radiation (on which present FCC guidelines are based). This new understanding means we can debunk the claims of the wireless industry that there cannot be a mechanism for effects produced by these weak EMFs. The 20 years plus of industry propaganda claims are false. Rather the thousands of studies showing diverse health impacts of these EMFs can be explained.

We now have a mechanism, one that is supported by both the biology and the physics, both of which are pointing in exactly the same direction. I am sending as a separate document a list of 134 reviews, each of which provides from 12 to over a thousand individual citations showing health impacts of low intensity EMFs, EMFs that the telecommunications industry claims cannot have such effects. These 134 reviews and thousands of primary scientific papers they cite show that the industry propaganda has no scientific support whatsoever. The consensus among independent scientists on this is further confirmed by the 2015 (and later) appeal made to the United Nations and member states, stating that the current EMF safety guidelines are inadequate because they do not take into consideration non-thermal effects. This was signed by 225 scientists from 41 countries, each of whom had published peer reviewed studies on EMF health effects -a total of 2,000 papers published in this area by the signers, a substantial fraction of the total publications in this area. According to industry, the forces electromagnetic fields place on electrically-charged groups in the cell are too weak to produce biological effects. However, the unique structural properties of the voltage-gated calcium channel (VGCC) protein can, it turns out, explain why the force on a cell’s voltage sensor from low-intensity EMFs are millions of times stronger than are the forces on singly-charged groups elsewhere in the cell.

Dr. Pall encouraged California legislators to pause to understand:

the gravity of the biological effects [of the 5G Network], and the ramifications for physical and mental health, as well as consequences from continual damage to human DNA, and learn the facts from scientists who are independent of the wireless industry, not from the industry lobbyists who have a gigantic conflict of interest. VGCC activation in cells produced by low intensity EMFs can explain long-reported findings that electromagnetic fields and a wide range of biological changes and health effects. The first 6 of these (see below) were well documented 46 years ago in the U.S. Office of Naval Medical Research report, published in 1971[8]. The others that follow have been extensively documented subsequently in the peer-reviewed scientific literature: 1) Various neurological/neuropsychiatric effects, including changes in brain structure and function, changes in various types of psychological responses and changes in behavior. 2) At least eight different endocrine (hormonal) effects. 3) Cardiac effects influencing the electrical control of the heart, including changes in ECGs, producing arrhythmias, changes that can be life threatening. 4) Chromosome breaks and other changes in chromosome structure. 5) Histological changes in the testes. 6) Cell death (what is now called apoptosis, a process important in neurodegenerative diseases). 7) Lowered male fertility including lowered sperm quality and function and also lowered female fertility (less studied). 8) Oxidative stress. 9) Changes in calcium fluxes and calcium signaling. 10) Cellular DNA damage including single strand breaks and double strand breaks in cellular DNA and also 8-OHdG in cellular DNA. 11) Cancer which is likely to involve these DNA changes but also increased rates of tumor promotion-like events. 12) Therapeutic effects including stimulation of bone growth. 13) Cataract formation (previously thought to be thermal, now known not to be). 14) Breakdown of the blood-brain barrier. 15) Melatonin depletion and sleep disruption.

They may be low intensity but with regard to the VGCCs [voltage-gated calcium channels], electromagnetic fields can have a tremendously powerful impact on the cells of our bodies. Furthermore, published studies showing that calcium channel blocker drugs block or greatly lower biological effects from electromagnetic fields confirm there is a VGCC activation mechanism that is causing various effects. Higher frequency electromagnetic fields from 5G technologies on the horizon pose even greater biological concern than those to which we are exposed today. We should be moving, instead, to wired technologies at every opportunity, based on what we know in science today, not expanding and supporting the proliferation of wireless.

A simple analogy may help to explain why increasingly stronger electromagnetic fields can have increasingly harmful effects on humans, animals and plants, while weaker ones can be relatively harmless. We are all familiar with substances in our food which are beneficial or harmless in low doses, but toxic or even fatal in higher doses. The arsenic in potatoes, for example, does us no harm, but higher concentrations of arsenic form the stuff of murder mysteries. Apologists for the 5G network who point to safety studies using weaker electromagnetic fields than 5G are disingenuous at best. Public safety demands long-term safety studies on the effect of 5G-strength electromagnetic fields on plants, animals and humans. Anything less than that is unacceptable.

I encourage all of our readers to become informed on this topic before the 5G Network becomes a fait accompli. Readers in the United States can alert their elected representatives to the dangers of the 5G Network by going to this link.

Before leaving this topic, I would like to mention one other related concern: the global trend toward the use of RFID chips in passports and driver’s licenses. RFID chips or radio-frequency-identification-devices “use electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. Passive tags collect energy from a nearby RFID reader’s interrogating radio waves” (Wikipedia). In combination with a 5G Network, RFID devices will potentially allow a state or even a global government of the future to track every one of its citizens 24/7. What is worse, once RFID chips in identification documents are accepted, it will only be a matter of time before “implanted” RFID chips are promoted as the “convenient” way to dispense with the need for credit cards and identification documents, so that it will be possible to “buy and sell” without the need for anything more than an implantable chip. It doesn’t take the imagination of a Fr. Teilhard De Chardin to see how quickly the “convenient possibility” of buying and selling with an implantable RFID chip could “evolve” into a “requirement” that all citizens of the national or global economy possess such an implantable device in order to “buy or sell.”


Today is a First Saturday. If no Pope has yet consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary with all of the Bishops as requested by Our Lady of Fatima, it is because we, the lay faithful, have not heeded her requests that we consecrate ourselves to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray the Holy Rosary daily, and make the Communions of Reparation on five First Saturdays. When enough of us fulfill these requirements and live our personal consecration to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary in all of our thoughts, words, and actions, then the Pope and the Bishops will receive the grace that they need to fulfill the part of Our Lady of Fatima’s peace plan that only they can execute.

Yours in Christ through the Immaculata, in union with St. Joseph,

Hugh Owen

P.S. We are currently having our DVD series “Foundations Restored” previewed by a number of Cardinals, Bishops and other Church leaders all over the world. As soon as they have finished the preview, we will be ready to release the series on DVD and in a digital format. In the meantime, we are pleased to be able to offer the DVDs and audio CDs from our 2019 leadership conference on the Kolbe web store.

P.P.S. Kolbe advisory council member Mr. Hugh Miller has organized a special excavation for dinosaur and human footprints on a private ranch about eight feet above the Paluxy River, in Glen Rose, Texas, 65 miles southwest of Dallas/Ft. Worth Airport, from Monday, November 4, through Thursday, November 7.  According to Hugh, the excavation will probably start about noon on the 4th and last through the afternoon of November 7, as the team will start sawing through 12 inches of Cretaceous limestone to get to the next strata containing the fossil dinosaur and human footprints. If anyone is interested in learning more, please send me an email at howen@shentel.net and I will put you in touch with Hugh Miller directly.
