How Did You Miss?

“The Guide says that there is an art to flying,” said Ford, “or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.”

– Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

I’m reading the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy to my son while I’m homeschooling him. We do all of the school assignments of course, but I have a few assignments of my own. These include reading to him some of the books that have had particular significance in my life.

We have read through John Watson’s the Double Helix, and Arthur Ransom’s Swallows and Amazons. We read the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe and we just started Life, the Universe and Everything. That’s when we got to the part about learning to fly.

It somehow produced, in my mind, a tenuous connection to the Matty’s Paradigm predictive testable hypothesis 22, which itself is an outgrowth of the Sophia Proton thought experiment.

Predictive Testable Hypothesis 22

  • IF the Holy Spirit is the power of God to inspire human writers,
    • AND the physics of the universe has been written in scripture so that it’s
      1. obvious and
      2. invisible,
  • THEN phrases or words that look like chemistry, physics, biology or geology should be treated as if they are chemistry, physics, biology or geology,
    • AND the science will be congruent with the scriptural context.

The connection is, as I said, tenuous and, if I’m honest, I can’t quite put it into words at this time. However, it has something to do with so-called Biblical literalists not actually taking the Bible literally, and somehow managing to miss most of its meaning.

Something along those lines. I’ll figure it out.

Loyal to the Word of God

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

(2 Timothy 2:15) KJV

Speaking of George Muller (1805-1898)

He intended no assault upon brethren who hold other views, when he thus plainly stated in his journal the honest and unavoidable convictions to which he came; but he was too loyal to both the word of God and to his own conscience to withhold his views when so carefully and prayerfully arrived at through the searching of the scriptures.

– Arthur T. Pierson, George Muller of Bristol

I may be guilty of assaulting brethren who hold other views, but I certainly understand what it means to be loyal to the word of God and to my conscience. Here’s a quote from the book I’m currently reading, one which I’ve read before but return to.

6/7 Tribulation Rapture

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

(1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for March

The pre-tribulation rapture is pastoral fudge. Christians and the Church will be on the earth during six of the seven plagues that are part of the tribulation.

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

(1 Corinthians 15:52) KJV

The Last Trump is After the First Six

…at the last trump (1 Corinthians 15:52). There will be seven trumpets. This means that the rapture will take place after six of the seven trumpets have sounded. Here’s a quick summary of what happens as the first six trumpets are sounded:

Tribulation 0.86 The First Six Trumpets

  1. The surface of the earth is devastated by burning hail,
    • humans and livestock are affected by burning sores in the skin,
    • the continents move together to form a contiguous landmass.
  2. The first of three extraterrestrial impacts pollutes the sea,
    • everything in the oceans dies.
  3. A second extraterrestrial impact poisons all fresh water,
    • the rivers, streams and lakes turn to blood.
  4. The sun emits solar flares and burns off most of its remaining fuel,
    • it briefly flares 7 times brighter then weakens to a dim glow.
  5. A third extraterrestrial impact ruptures the crust and mantle all around the periphery of the super-continent which has formed,
    • a swarm of horse-sized armor-plated locusts with scorpion tails come out of the depths of the earth,
    • smoke bellows out from the crack in the earth and darkens the sky,
    • the scorpions torment the people for 5 months.
  6. All the armies of the earth assemble for the battle of Armageddon.

The Belly of Hell

Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish’s belly, And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.

(Jonah 2:1-2) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for March

Jonah drowned and died. According to his testimony his soul went to hell, his body was swallowed by a fish. In hell he cried out to the Lord and he was resurrected in the fish’s belly. Chapter 2 of Jonah includes a first-hand eyewitness account of the internal structure of the earth. It gives us the clues we need to assemble the pieces of our spherical hollow earth model (SHEM).

Jonah gives us direct observation of the pillars of the earth. Direct observation is also known as empirical. The pillars of the earth aren’t allegorical, metaphorical or theoretical, they’re empirical.

Happy Π Day!

Also he made a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits the height thereof; and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.

(2 Chronicles 4:2) KJV

The Logic of Damnation

  • IFthe Bible is supposed to be the inerrant Word of God,
    • BUTthe value of Π is wrong,
  • THENthe Bible isn’t inerrant,
    • THEREFOREit can be safely rejected.

Evil people want you to believe that the Bible gets the value of Π wrong so that you’ll reject it and forfeit the gift of everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ. However the Bible gets the value of Π exactly right.

Two Trees

And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

(Genesis 2:8-9) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for March

We have lots of questions and definitions today. I thought I’d share them.

  • Question:
    • IF God created a perfect world which got ruined by accident,
    • THEN why was the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden?
  • Answer:
    • God didn’t create a perfect world.
  • Question:
    • WHY did God put the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden,
    • IF he knew that eating the fruit would ruin his creation?
  • Answer:
    • Eating the fruit didn’t ruin God’s creation.
  • Question:
    • IF God’s perfect world wasn’t supposed to fall into corruption, Plan A,
    • THEN was Christ’s death on the cross Plan B?
  • Answer:
    • God didn’t create a perfect world.
  • Question:
    • IF our soul is eternal,
    • WHY would we need a tree of life?
  • Answer:
    • The tree of life is for healing the body, not the soul.

Abiogenesis is the creative will of God expressed as progressively more complex biological life over the course of the 6 days of creation.

– Abiogenesis, definition

Devolution is change in allele frequency in a population, combined with accumulated mutations and DNA replication errors, that causes genomic decay, sickness, and loss of variability over time. It includes both macro and micro evolution. It began at the fall of man in Genesis 3:16.

– Devolution, definition

Devolution is the process of genetic change over time by which the animals saved on Noah’s ark gave rise to the distribution of current biodiversity.

– Devolution, context

Evolution on the scale required in the SciPop paradigm requires death. There was no death before sin, therefore the evolutionary basis of the Phylogenetic Tree of Life is impossible.

God Planted a Garden

And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

(Genesis 2:8) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for March

Devolution is the process of genetic change over time by which the animals saved on Noah’s ark gave rise to the distribution of current biodiversity.

The probability that four habits evolved in 620 plant families is a number too big to display in Google Sheets. The probability that four habits were created with 620 flower types is not that big. Occam’s razor that.

Tradition

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

(Colossians 2:8) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for February

Obviously the earth isn’t flat, therefore, the Spirit of Truth can’t lead you to that conclusion. It’s very simple, God isn’t going to expect you to believe something that’s obviously wrong.

Salvation: There’s an app for that, right?

In my experience atheist science trolls (ASTs) have very little knowledge of their subjects. When challenged to explain the rationale for the basic foundations of their beliefs they can’t. When pushed to provide some shred of evidence that they actually understand what science is and where it came from there is one particular response that comes up time and time again:

“Science is true because it works.”

My friend, the fact that science works doesn’t prove anything other than the internal logic of a false paradigm is consistent.

Most people take the fact that we landed a space craft on a comet as proof that science is right about Heliocentricity. However, because of the way that Math works, specifically Newton’s law of gravity and the inverse square law, the gravitational calculations involved in the space flight are still accurate whether the Earth orbits the Sun or the Sun orbits the Earth. Of course, as soon as you explain Newton to a troll they start spouting about Relativity, as if Newton is now irrelevant and Einstein fixed everything. Little do they know that Einstein just covered all of Galileo, Kepler and Newton’s shortcomings with indecipherable fudge. It’s meaningless. To summarize the last 400 years of astrophysical science:

  1. Kepler didn’t get it.
  2. Galileo lied.
  3. Newton used circular reasoning.
  4. Einstein went off the deep end trying to straighten it out.
  5. Hawking substituted Science Fiction for real knowledge.

In the alternaive, Matty’s Paradigm, where the Sun orbits the Earth, the mass of the Sun is a fraction of what it is thought to be, but the masses of all the other planets are also relatively smaller. The planetary bodies have exactly the same gravitational relationships to each other. A space probe can’t tell the difference. Mathematically the two models are the same except on completely different scales. The gravitational interaction between the planetary bodies and our satellites are no different. The models used by NASA and other space agencies are designed to fit our observations: they don’t define the universe. However, atheist science trolls automatically assume that the existence of the concept of Heliocentricity automatically precludes any other possibility.

This simplistic attitude is very common. Pretty much everyone these days thinks that the iPhone is so cool that they couldn’t possibly be in danger of hell fire. It could be said that the success of technology has allowed us to abdicate responsibility for our spiritual lives, figuring that science has eliminated spiritual problems.

And herein lies the big problem: Don’t kid yourself that science has dispelled the spiritual danger we all face. Hell is real. As a matter of fact, hell is expanding and it is the cause of global warming.

There is only one way to escape: trust in the savior, Jesus Christ.

As confusing as what I’m teaching you about science may be there is something important to remember: You don’t need any science to be saved from hell and receive the free gift of everlasting life. Salvation is so simple that a little child can understand:

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:9-13)

And don’t forget perhaps the greatest Bible passage of them all:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:16,17)

The Watchman

I’m not here to judge you or anyone else, I don’t know what is in your heart: only God does.

My concern is that death is not the sweet nothingness that modern science wants you to believe it is: the karmic return of our molecules and energy into the environment. Death is a physical end of the body, but our soul has to continue for ever.

If we knew Jesus Christ during our lifetime then we are purified, placed into a new body and we go on into eternity in the presence of almighty God. Those that rejected Christ will pass through death and awake to the horror of torment in hell. It’s not a pretty picture. There are times when I feel like apologizing for even writing the words. However the burden has been placed on me to want to reach out and deliver this message. If I know the truth and I have the ability to warn people but don’t do it: their blood will be on my hands. If I warn people and they reject me then I am not responsible for their outcome.

  1. Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
  2. Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
  3. If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
  4. Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
  5. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
  6. But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
  7. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
  8. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
  9. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. (Ezekiel 33:1-9)

It’s bleak, but you would be well served by reading in the Bible the last two chapters: Revelation 21 & 22. The glory that awaits us is beyond anything we can imagine 😃
