NewsRescue– An amazing questionable feature on the iPhone 5s Siri voice app that has been discovered, is a response given when the phone is asked ‘what is July 27th 2014?’ Siri responds, ‘it is Sunday July 2014th, opening gates of Hades.’
Siri did the same thing this year, calling August 7th the ‘opening gates of Hades,’ date.
These two dates correspond to the calculated date of the end of the Muslim fasting Holy month of Ramadan.
According to Islam the gates of heaven are opened at the beginning of the month and this means good deeds get the best reward and it is harder to do evil things in this Holy month because at the same time the gates of hell (Hades) are closed. The gates of hell (Hades) will be closed about June 28th, 2014 according to the Muslim calendar, marking the beginning of the Ramadan month.
And at the end of the month, the devil is released again as the gates of hell (Hades) are now re-opened. This will be on Sunday July 27th, 2014, the date Siri mentions; though these dates may not be precise as Muslims follow the Lunar calendar and rely on the physical sighting of the moon to determine the start and end of the month; but scientists are promoting the use of astrological computing to take over the establishment of the dates of commencement and termination of Muslim events.
Ramadan month is on different days, 15 days earlier each year because the Lunar Calendar has 28 day months.
‘Hades’ is an ancient Greek word for the underworld, which Siri uses for ‘Hell.’
Also Date Of Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival
Not only are the dates Siri recognizes, the Muslim Ramadan end date when Hell gates are opened, but for 2013 and 2014 the dates coincide with a Chinese festival. China, which also uses the Lunar calendar, on the fifteenth day of the seventh month in the lunar calendar , marks the ‘Ghost festival,‘ or Yu Lan, when the realms of Heaven and Hell and the realm of the living are open and both Taoists and Buddhists would perform rituals to transmute and absolve the sufferings of the deceased.
Celebrations and homage is paid to the ‘Ghosts’ of the deceased on this date when the deceased are believed to visit the living.Meals are placed in front of empty seats and lanterns lit to give direction to lost souls.
While Ramadan dates come backwards 15 days every month, the Chinese Hungry Ghost festival remains around the middle of the year each year and as such the two occasions, though coinciding for 2013 and 2014 will not coincide in 2015. We invite people with iPhones to test which Siri is talking about by asking it, ‘what is August 27th 2015,’ which will be the Chinese Ghost day and ‘what is July 17th, 2015?’ Which approximates Muslim Ramadan of 2015. We will update this article with the result.
It is rather peculiarly interesting that Apple programmed Siri to recognize and proclaim these dates. It makes you wonder what else your home technology knows and cares about.
