So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. ( Psalm 90:12, 17 )
If we commit to fulfill God’s minimum expectations, and He promised to meet our needs, then whatever work meets our needs and allows us to fulfill his expectations is the work he established for our hands.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. ( Philippians 4:8 )
By the grace of God I am intellectually and physically free. I get to think about whatever I want and decide how I spend my time. There are few constraints. I should be mindful not to squander this freedom.
Alex Knapp Forbes Staff I write about the future of science, technology, and culture.

We already knew this folks. Assuming that radioactive isotopes decay at a constant rate the the first step in establishing the technique of radiometric dating.
Radiometric dating that can produce dates older than the actual age of the earth is necessary to build the scientific backing for the theory of evolution.
Since the earth is only about 6,000 years old and evolution is not the origin of humanity, then it is obvious that radioisotopes don’t decay at a constant rate.
It’s simple logic.
For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else. ( Isaiah 45:18 )
By the end of the first day light was trapped in a watery mass teeming with biological life. It was the primordial soup. The first day produced the written word: the Bible encoded as replicating DNA.
And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. ( Genesis 1:20-23 )
The biological definition of life and what the Bible describes as living are not the same thing. This is important to know as we see how the process of creation unfolded. Biology is the foundation of secular humanism.
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. ( Philippians 4:4-7 )
I have been writing about science and the Bible for over 20 years. Things are coming together in a way that makes more sense than ever. Yet today we can pause and reflect before making the next step.
For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer. For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount. ( Hebrews 8:3-5 )
Hydrogen atoms, H+, are necessary for nucleosynthesis, but also for life.
If we said that all metabolism is based on a process that produces a supply of H+ it would not be an exaggeration.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. ( John 1:14 )
The Bible, the Word of God, the written form of he whom Jesus of Nazareth was incarnated to embody, was encoded as DNA on the first day of creation.
Could we have the Bible as non-coding DNA in every cell of our bodies?
If the Bible is a source of wisdom and knowledge which covers all life situations, then where does it talk about depression?
We have found three ways in which the Bible describes depression:
- A spirit of heaviness ( Isaiah 61:3 )
- Discouragement ( Isaiah 42:4 )
- Cast Down ( Psalms 42:5-6, 11; 43:5 )
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? ( Matthew 27:46 )
IF earthly things are patterned after heavenly,
AND Christ’s death on the cross is patterned after the sacrifice God made on day 1,
THEN Christ’s cry is patterned after the noise of the water molecules spliting.
