Creationism AND Evolution: There Is Truth In Both Of Them

Creationism AND Evolution: There Is Truth In Both Of Them

 

I am a devout life long Christian yet I have for most of my adult life debated how Christians (for the most part) are so oblivious to reality and to the Truths that are shown us in the Bible. So many people who believe in the Bible as the Holy Spirit Inspired Word Of God (as I also do) tend to read the Bible with ‘Church Doctrine’ blinders on. Back in the time of the Apostles and the time that Jesus walked the Earth when they taught in the Synagogues the people studied the Scriptures to see if what they were being taught was the truth or not. Just because your Preacher or a Church Elder, Bishop, or if you are Catholic, even the Pope, tells you something it is your Christian obligation to search out the Scriptures to see if what you are being told is Biblical truth.

 

Reality is that the ignorance of Christians/Churches have convinced millions if not billions of people throughout history to turn their backs on the Jewish and the Christian faith. Right from the very first book of the Bible (Genesis) Christians and Jews do not understand what we are so plainly being told. Yes the world and all in it were created in six days, but those six days are not, were not, human days, they were God’s days. I nor any other human knows what one of God’s days represent compared to a human day but Scripture tells us over and over again that God’s days are not our days yet humans keep trying to make that be so anyway. Even in our own solar system every single planet that circles the sun has a different amount of our hours in one of their days. Some will, through their ego’s say, well why didn’t Moses just lay it all our for us so we could know exactly everything? Folks, almost all of the humans that were alive about 3,600-3,700 human years ago calculated time through their own ancestors which normally only traversed back 3, 4, or 5 generations at best. Do you honestly think if Moses had started teaching them of thinks that happened 3 or 4 billion years ago that these people would have listened to him? What if Moses had started laying out the lineage of Dinosaurs, what do you think they would have done? My guess is that the people would have shunned him for being a crazy man.

 

Most all of us know some about the story of Adam and Eve from the first two chapters of Genesis but my question to everyone is, just how well have you read it? Have you just taken the word of the Church you attend as to what the Scripture actually is telling us all? Please reread the first two chapters. If you will notice in the first chapter Adam was created but before His creation God created ‘men and women, and, God created He them’. After God had created multiple ‘men and women’ God created Adam. Now in the first chapter, after God did all of His creating of those ‘Six Days’, God rested from His work on the 7th day. Then after all His work was done and He had created the first group of people (the Gentiles) and Adam, then in chapter #2 God then created Eve to be a help mate for Adam. Folks, the ‘promised one, the Messiah, Jesus The Christ’ lineage is traced back through the ‘Royal Blood Line’ to Adam, actually to Eve. There were two human creations, the gentiles, and the Royal Blood Line of Adam. Adam and Eve were about 5,500 human years ago yet humans were on this planet many thousands of years before this time. Jesus Himself referred to us Gentiles as “people before this time whom were not a people”. Jesus was pointing out that before His time here on Earth, before His Resurrection that salvation was only to the Jews and to no one else. So, people who were not a people, Gentiles! These are simple truths laid out in writing for us all to see yet we choose to remain blind. Think about a few things we are told here in the beginning of Genesis. After Cain had murdered his brother Able God banished Cain to the East of Eden in the land of Nod. God put a mark on the forehead of Cain so that “all who find him would not kill him”, folks, all of who? There were only 3 people left on the planet right, just Cain, his Mom Eve and his Dad Adam, so all of whom? Then after Cain had been banished he took a wife, wait a minute, where did she come from? Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible/Torah through the guidance of God’s Spirit, whom we tend to call the Holy Spirit from the New Testament. The Truth of the Scriptures are right before our eyes, but we have been trained not to see the real Truth. We have been taught Church doctrines instead which has run many millions of people away from God’s teachings.

 

If Moses had told the people of his time that the world was about 4-5 billion years old and that the planet we call Earth had started with a big interstellar bang what do you think the people would have done to him? At the very least they would have thought him to be crazy and no one would have paid him any mind. To my Christian and Jewish brothers, yes there were such things as dinosaurs and there has been life on this planet for several hundred millions of human years. I did not say that there has been human life here on Earth for hundreds of millions of our years, just life itself. God does not want us to be ignorant for ignorance begets death, physical and spiritual. Science has pretty much discovered/proven that human life has been on this planet for hundreds of thousands of years, not just the 5,000-5,500 years since Adam and Eve. I am not an archaeologist even though I am a huge fan of history. I know that science has been looking for the so-called ‘missing link’ between Primates and Humans for longer than I have been alive. This is like trying to find that pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, it doesn’t exist folks.

 

Evolution, is there such a thing? Of course there is folks. As an example I would like to use the people science calls Neanderthals. For most of my life time scientist have wondered what happened to them, why did they go extinct? Just like the people before them who bred with them the same thing happened to them, they were bred out of existence. You can breed cattle with buffalo and you get what is called beefalo. You can take oranges and breed them with tangerines and you get a product called tangelos. In Scripture the ‘House of Israel’ was forbidden to mix blood with any of the Gentiles, if they did then they were counted as not being pure. Humans did not crawl up out of the oceans and even though we have many of the same molecules of other creatures we did not derive from them and they did not derive from us. Today science can create a form of a human being through cloning and some would call this evolution, that we have evolved into a more pure condition but they are ignorant of reality. Science can play God, but they are not God. Just as if I could make an android and give it a human name like George, George is still not a human. The difference in these two creations of science and a real human being is that science can not create ‘a Soul’. It is the Soul that makes the conscientiousness that makes one human and only God can create the Soul. Is there such a thing as evolution, of course there is, just not to the extent that some scientist believe and or are trying to find or create.

 

Science has some things wrong, yet they do have many things correct. Churches have many things correct, yet they have many things wrong. It is the job of the Churches to teach the whole Truth but first the Churches must open their eyes to what the Scriptures actually say and to forget about ‘Church doctrines’. The Earth is a special place for it is designated to be “God’s Footstool”. Earth is where Jesus will reign from once the New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven to replace the current city of Jerusalem once it has been totally destroyed after the Second Advent. Now, Christians, wake up to reality about other planets. Do you honestly think that if God is the Creator of all things in the Heavens and on the Earth that He created billions of planets for no purpose or reason at all? To the best of my knowledge I have never seen an alien yet I totally believe that they exist, it would be difficult to honestly believe other wise. Then again there is the issue of, what does an alien actually look like? Personally I have no idea, but I do doubt that they look like humans. Personally I believe in the existence of Angels, I also believe that I have seen and spoken with at least two in my lifetime. I also believe in the existence of Satan and of His Angels, to me, to not believe in both is Biblical ignorance. I personally do not know if I have ever spoken directly with any Demons but I think that there is a very good chance that I have several times. I know that I have experienced being in places and in the presence of a few people where the feeling of pure evil was like a stench in the air, you could feel it, you could almost taste it. Remember, if you spend your life trying to be good and trying your best to be the best follower of Christ that you know how to be, you make yourself a target for the hate of evil ones, humans and otherwise.

India: My ancestors were not apes, says minister Satyapal Singh

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF THE HINDUSTAN TIMES NEWSPAPER OF INDIA)

(I am not from India, I am not a Hindu, I am a fundamentalist Christian yet I agree with Minister Singh on this issue. To me, in my beliefs, I believe that Charles Darwin is about 50% incorrect in his hypothesis about the beginning of the human race. I put this oped piece in to this article for the purpose of giving some backing too Minister Singh) (oped by: oldpoet56) 

I’m a science student, I believe my ancestors were not apes, says minister Satyapal Singh

The junior minister in the HRD ministry said people will accept what he said in 10-20 years if not immediately.

Union minister Satyapal Singh on Saturday stood by his claim that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution of man was “scientifically wrong” and said that as a science student, he believes that his “ancestors were not apes”.

The junior minister in the HRD ministry denounced those who attacked him over his comments and said “it’s not scientific temper to condemn the point of view of another person”.

“I am a science student and I have completed my PhD in Chemistry. Who all were the ones speaking against me? And, how many people stood by me? We should be compelled to think. We get scared of the press. If not today, tomorrow. If not tomorrow, then in 10-20 years, people will accept what I said. At least, I believe that my ancestors were not apes,” he said at a book launch.

“It’s not scientific temper to condemn the point of another person. Give it a thought,” the minister added.

Singh had a few months ago said Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution was wrong and the changes need to reflect in the school and college curriculum, drawing flak from various quarters.

The former Mumbai police commissioner said he was “proud to be an educated politician” and it was the “good fortune” of the country that a “nationalist government with a nationalist mindset” is at helm.

He said 99 per cent of the universities abroad “misinterpret, mistranslate” Hinduism.

“I am writing a book… And there will be a chapter on this. We will not take help from any westerner. We will give validation and documentary evidence, and we will prove what we are saying is right. Did any of our sages ask any professor from England to validate his point?” the minister asked.

The biggest blunder, he added, was that India continued to follow the education system and the mentality of the British.

Bill Nye Is Only Half Insane

Bill Nye Is Only Half Insane

 

This title is obviously just my opinion of Mr Nye, I do not know the man and I have never met him. My opinion is simply formed by articles I have read on the net where his opinions were down in print. Do I believe that I am smarter than Mr Nye, no I don’t. But in some areas of science and faith (which he seems to have none at all) I know for a fact that I am wiser than he is. I do not blame him or anyone else really for their distorted views on the earths and our creation. The reason for that is simple, I do not personally know of any Christian or Jewish faith that seems to understand the beginning of the first book of the Bible (Genesis). I believe that it was the Apostle Paul who wrote that all people should study (the Scriptures) daily so that we can be a workman that need not be ashamed for our lack of knowledge. As it is also written that when a person is preaching/teaching you that the Scriptures say we should all read/check to see if the things we are being taught it correct or not. Do we ever question our Church leaders about what we hear from the pulpit? How many Christians never or almost never go to Church services or if we do, how many follow the Preachers message in the Bible as he/she is talking? How many people who say we are Christians do not even own one single Bible? If we do own one at home do we even know where we stored it? How many folks could gag from the dust accumulated on its cover?

 

In a recent National Geographic News article Mr Nye was quoted as saying that “evolution is undeniable and creationism is insane”. I respect the man’s position because it is given through a total lack of knowledge of what the Scriptures say. I had this same conversation with Carl Sagen back in 1991 in person when we met in Madison Wisconsin after a speech he gave there. In the discussion he asked me how someone who is as studied (in Scripture) as I am could possibly believe that there is a God that created all things. I asked him how someone who is so knowledgeable and so intelligent could possibly not believe in a Supreme Being (God). If we could only get the churches and the synagogues to open their eyes to the words they read so blindly then maybe, maybe there would be a “coming to Jesus (God) moment” when our eyes begin to see and understand what is there and what isn’t said. There is so much information in the first two chapters of the book of Genesis, it covers several billion human years, NOT just seven human days. The seven human day theory is as Mr Nye says “insane”. Another term would also be “just plain ignorant”. Now saying that someone is ignorant of something by no means is a slap at the person, ignorant just simply means lacking knowledge of a certain event.

 

By faith I am a devout fundamentalist Christian yet I totally believe that our universe and this planet began with the big bang that science believes that it did. I also do believe in evolution, to a certain point. What I do mean by evolution is in the evolving of the human race. Evolving such as the phasing out of one group of humans as they assimilate into another culture such as in how the Neanderthals bred into a slightly more evolved group of humans thus phasing out their race. Breeding a race out of existence is nothing new to humans it has been going on for a long long time. An example would be like the American government back in the late 1800’s when political and military opinion was to wipe out the Native Indian people’s. You kill all the males and then bred with the females. In just a very few generations of mixing blood the American Indian people would have only been in a few history books. Some evolution cycles throughout history have been forced but most were of nature weeding out the sick and the stupid.

 

One of the first things that people need to do when we seek knowledge that is given through the Scriptures is to pray first before we study and that (studying) needs to be a daily part of our lives just like setting aside a few moments a day for prayer should be an automatic for us. When we read Scripture we need to do it with an open mind, not a mindset of trying to prove a “Church doctrine” to be the Truth. If people pay attention to the words written down in the first two chapters of the Bible you should notice very plainly that there are two “human” creations. This understanding of this fact is very helpful in understanding that the seven human days of creation are not at all correct. God most of the time speaks what He wishes done, then puts the building blocks into place to then form His wishes into existence.

 

Time is the issue here in the argument that Mr Nye puts forth in his argument about creationism and he is correct on that issue. People need to understand time differences, they exist all around us but we humans choose to not understand. Look at the other planets that revolve around our Sun, check out each planets length of a day, they all differ from each other. Look at different living creatures on our own planet, dogs, cats, starfish, seahorses, the list is very long, look how long their life cycles are. To these other creatures of God’s hands, do you think a dog realizes that his ratio is different from ours? Why can’t we humans realize that our time is different from Gods time even when the Scriptures tell us pointedly of this fact? Until people who believe that the Bible is the Word of God and starts reading/studying it with an open mind, not one that is predetermined by a Church Doctrine our eyes will never be opened to the understanding of what God is telling all of us. Until we do this as a Nation and as a World People then there will always be this ignorant discussion like the one Mr Nye uses when he shows us all his lack of knowledge concerning God, God’s Word, and Time it’s self. But to his defense he is in an argument with people who are lacking the understanding of the very issue they are using to make their argument with in the first place!

Folks: Evolution’s Missing Link Is; I’ll Explain

Folks: Evolution’s Missing Link Is; I’ll Explain

 

Evolution, do you believe in it, no, I do. I am a fundamentalist christian, so how can I believe in such a thing as evolution you might ask. My answer is simple, I believe in what the Bible says, what it shows us, and what so few seem to see’s. Look at the beginning of the first book, Genesis. Have you noticed the two creations, the one where man was created on the sixth day, both men and women created He (God) them? Have you noticed in the next chapter that after the Seventh day and God rested, then God created Adam and then Eve? It wasn’t until then that God made them a “living soul”. He didn’t do that with the people He created on the sixth day. Do you see there were two people’s, the Gentiles and the Royal Bloodline were created? The people that were not of the Royal Bloodline Jesus himself referred to us as “people who before this time were not a people” and Jesus also referred to us Gentiles as “dogs”.

Time, seven days, only a dummy could believe it (Scripture) is referring to man kinds literal days. Within Scripture in many places time is referred to and states that our time and God’s time “day’s” are not our day’s so why do we keep trying to make those seven days of God’s days be our days? I do not know exactly what one of God’s days are, these first six days may well have simply been six visitations from God to the overseeing of His “footstool”. When you are speaking in terms of eternity, what matter does a day possess? This “time” that we don’t grasp could be almost any amount of  time. I do believe in a lot of what science has learned but in some things they are looking for things that don’t or never existed, like the ‘Missing Links’.

There have been huge animals on this planet for millions of years yet only in about the past 150 years have we started to learn from their bones that we humans have been uncovering. Human type people have been on this planet for probably at least a few hundred thousand years, minimum. But, Adam and Eve were a little less than six thousand years ago! We gentiles have evolved, but not from monkey’s and they did not crawl out of the oceans. Science has shown that humans have evolved a lot through time and just as the Neanderthals were bred out of existence through evolution in the breeding with other early humans, “Gentiles”, we have evolved, evolution. What science will never find is their “Missing Link”, because there are several links between the gorillas and the earliest humans. But, evolution just like extension are scientific fact and where science and Scripture seem to disagree is mostly because we humans do not seem to be able to understand what the Scriptures are actually telling us.

If Christian and  Jewish people of faith would quit being blind to what God is so plainly showing us in His word, maybe we would realize that science is not our enemy and maybe the scientist would come to realize that the Word of God is a guide post for them. There are a lot of people who have never taken the Bible seriously because of Christians and Jewish people not understanding what it says themselves. We all need to come together without the hate and with open ears and eyes, we can all learn things from each other. I pray that God will continue to bless us all and cure us of our own blindness and ignorance.

Erdogan’s Post-Evolutionary Turkey Floods School Classrooms, Threatens Universities

Erdogan’s Post-Evolutionary Turkey Floods School Classrooms, Threatens Universities

Photo of Recep Tayyip Erdogan taken from r4bia.com. Creative commons.

While the earlier education reforms of Turkey’s socially conservative AKP (Justice and Development Party) pointed towards inclusiveness, the current ones have a far more troubling direction.

Not content with removing around 45,000 education ministry staff from the government payroll following an abortive coup in July last year, Turkey’s ruling party is now looking to take down Darwin.

Last month the government announced that the theory of evolution would be removed from the teaching curriculum at Turkish schools until students reach university.

The announcement adds to evidence cited by concerned secularists who suggest Turkey’s education system is being remodelled in line with President Erdogan’s bid to raise “pious generations” and forge a “New Turkey”.

Efforts to rejig the country’s teaching curriculum along more religious lines are not new, dating back at least as February 2012.

What has changed since is President Erdogan’s seemingly unassailable position in post-coup attempt and post-referendum Turkey.

‘New Turkey’

Despite its shrunken majority and the ever-increasing polarization of the Turkish electorate — or perhaps because of these things — AKP is pushing its policy agenda more aggressively than ever before.

Along with the ban on evolution in the classroom, the AKP educational reforms will see the government’s narrative on the 2016 coup attempt embedded in school syllabi, while class time dedicated to modern Turkey’s secular founder Kemal Attaturk will be reduced.

Forced enrolment of some school-age students into controversial religious imam-hatip state schools is another feature of the new education agenda.

The AKP government won praise from both liberals and conservatives for managing to reverse the country’s repressive ban on headscarfs in universities back in 2010. The move allowed women from observant Muslim families to receive further education.

But the imam-hatip schools have faced criticism for discouraging girls from doing that very thing. Secularists see the schools growing role in Turkey’s education system as yet another sign that AKP is trying to recast the country in its own traditionalist image.

An evolving threat

According to the head of curriculum for the Turkish education ministry, teaching evolution in schools is “controversial”, but opponents of the ban were quick to side with science.

Evrim müfredattan çıkarıldı, biyoloji ders saati %33 azaltılırken din dersi saati % 100 arttırıldı. İran’ı kısa zamanda geçeriz İnşaAllah!

They have removed evolution from the curriculum, biology class hours have been reduced by 33%, while religion class hours have been increased by 100%. God willing, we are going to get ahead of Iran soon.

Evrim teorisi dersi kalkıyormuş arkadaşlar, arttık neyin dersini verecekler çocuklarımıza onu merak ediyorum 😠😠😠

They are removing evolution theory class. I am not wondering what they are going to teach our children.

Okullarda evrim dersleri okutulmayacak ama şeriat ceza hukuku din dersi okutulacak # işte yeni Türkiye anlayışı

There won’t be any classes on evolution. But there are classes on Sharia criminal law and religion. This is the meaning of ‘New Turkey’.

Biyoloji dersi ilk ders ilk slayt; evrim bir gerçektir, tartışılamaz. 29 yıldır aklımda. Hoca haklıydı.

Biology class, first class, first slide: evolution is real, and cannot be argued against. I have remembered this for 29 years. The teacher was right.

The international response has also been critical:

 continues to change ‘s identity by erasing evolution from the country’s education curriculum.https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/23/world/europe/turkey-evolution-high-school-curriculum.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Feurope&_r=0 

Schoolchildren in Istanbul. Turkey’s decision to stop teaching evolution in high schools has deepened concerns that the president, a conservative Muslim, wants to radically change the identity of the secular country.

Turkey Drops Evolution From Curriculum, Angering Secularists

A chapter on evolution will no longer appear in ninth graders’ textbooks because it is considered too “controversial” an idea, an education official said.

Currently the evolution ban only applies to schools, but many fear that universities are being targeted for a serious government-led overhaul, too. Thousands of academics were dismissed from their jobs following the military coup, while out of 180 universities currently operating in Turkey, 15 were shut down.

Wake up: Creationism AND Evolution-ism Are Both Correct!

 

I am a devout life long Christian yet I have for most of my adult life debated how Christians (for the most part) are so oblivious to reality and to the Truths that are shown us in the Bible. So many people who believe in the Bible as the Holy Spirit Inspired Word Of God (as I also do) tend to read the Bible with ‘Church Doctrine’ blinders on. Back in the time of the Apostles and the time that Jesus walked the Earth when they taught in the Synagogues the people studied the Scriptures to see if what they were being taught was the truth or not. Just because your Preacher or a Church Elder, Bishop, or if you are Catholic, even the Pope, tells you something it is your Christian obligation to search out the Scriptures to see if what you are being told is Biblical.

 

Reality is that the ignorance of Christians/Churches have convinced millions if not billions of people throughout history to turn their backs on the Jewish and the Christian faith. Right from the very first book of the Bible (Genesis) Christians and Jews do not understand what we are so plainly being told. Yes the world and all in it were created in six days, but those six days are not, were not, human days, they were God’s days. I nor any other human knows what one of God’s days represent compared to a human day but Scripture tells us over and over again that God’s days are not our days yet humans keep trying to make that be so anyway. Even in our own solar system every single planet that circles the sun has a different amount of our hours in one of their days. Some will, through their ego’s say, well why didn’t Moses just lay it all our for us so we could know exactly everything? Folks, almost all of the humans that were alive about 3,600-3,700 human years ago calculated time through their own ancestors which normally only traversed back 3, 4, or 5 generations at best. Do you honestly think if Moses had started teaching them of thinks that happened 3 or 4 billion years ago that these people would have listened to him? What if Moses had started laying out the lineage of Dinosaurs, what do you think they would have done? My guess is that the people would have shunned him for being a crazy man.

 

Most all of us know some about the story of Adam and Eve from the first two chapters of Genesis but my question to everyone is, just how well have you read it? Have you just taken the word of the Church you attend as to what the Scripture actually is telling us all? Please reread the first two chapters. If you will notice in the first chapter Adam was created but before His creation God created ‘men and women, and, God created He them’. After God had created multiple ‘men and women’ God created Adam. Now in the first chapter, after God did all of His creating of those ‘Six Days’, God rested from His work on the 7th day. Then after all His work was done and He had created the first group of people (the Gentiles) and Adam, then in chapter #2 God then created Eve to be a help mate for Adam. Folks, the ‘promised one, the Messiah, Jesus The Christ’ lineage is traced back through the ‘Royal Blood Line’ to Adam. There were two human creations, the gentiles, and the Royal Blood Line of Adam. Adam and Eve were about 5,500 human years ago yet humans were on this planet many thousands of years before this time. Jesus Himself referred to us Gentiles as “people before this time whom were not a people”. Jesus was pointing out that before His time here on Earth, before His Resurrection that salvation was only to the Jews and to no one else. So, people who were not a people, Gentiles! These are simple truths laid out in writing for us all to see yet we choose to remain blind. Think about a few things we are told here in the beginning of Genesis. After Cain had murdered his brother Able God banished Cain to the East of Eden in the land of Nod. God put a mark on the forehead of Cain so that “all who find him would not kill him”, folks, all of who? There were only 3 people left on the planet right, just Cain, his Mom Eve and his Dad Adam, so all of whom? Then after Cain had been banished he took a wife, wait a minute, where did she come from? Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible/Torah through the guidance of God’s Spirit, whom we tend to call the Holy Spirit from the New Testament. The Truth of the Scriptures are right before our eyes, but we have been trained not to see the real Truth. We have been taught Church doctrines instead which has run many millions away from God’s teachings.

 

If Moses had told the people of his time that the world was about 4-5 billion years old and that the planet we call Earth had started with a big interstellar bang what do you think the people would have done to him? At the very least they would have thought him to be crazy and no one would have paid him any mind. To my Christian and Jewish brothers, yes there were such things as dinosaurs and there has been life on this planet for several hundred millions of human years. I did not say that there has been human life here on Earth for hundreds of millions of our years, just life itself. God does not want us to be ignorant for ignorance begets death, physical and spiritual. Science has pretty much discovered/proven that human life has been on this planet for hundreds of thousands of years, not just the  5,000-5,500 years since Adam and Eve. I am not an archaeologist even though I am a huge fan of history. I know that science has been looking for the so-called ‘missing link’ between Primates and Humans for longer than I have been alive. This is like trying to find that pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, it doesn’t exist folks.

 

Evolution, is there such a thing? Of course there is folks. As an example I would like to use the people science calls Neanderthals. For most of my life time scientist have wondered what happened to them, why did they go extinct? Just like the people before them who bred with them the same thing happened to them, they were bred out of existence. You can breed cattle with buffalo and you get what is called beefalo. You can take oranges and breed them with tangerines and you get a product called tangelos. In Scripture the ‘House of Israel’ was forbidden to mix blood with any of the Gentiles, if they did then they were counted as not being pure. Humans did not crawl up out of the oceans and even though we have many of the same molecules of other creatures we did not derive from them and they did not derive from us. Today science can create a form of a human being through cloning and some would call this evolution, that we have evolved into a more pure condition but they are ignorant of reality. Science can play God, but they are not God. Just as if I could make an android and give it a human name like George, George is still not a human. The difference in these two creations of science and a real human being is that science can not create ‘a Soul’. It is the Soul that makes the conscientiousness that makes one human and only God can create the Soul. Is there such a thing as evolution, of course there is, just not to the extent that some scientist believe and or are trying to find or create.

 

Science has some things wrong, yet they do have many things correct. Churches have many things correct, yet they have many things wrong. It is the job of the Churches to teach the whole Truth but first the Churches must open their eyes to what the Scriptures actually say and to forget about ‘Church doctrines’. The Earth is a special place for it is designated to be “God’s Footstool”. Earth is where Jesus will reign from once the New Jerusalem comes down from Heaven to replace the current city of Jerusalem once it has been totally destroyed after the Second Advent. Now, Christians, wake up to reality about other planets. Do you honestly think that if God is the Creator of all things in the Heavens and on the Earth that He created billions of planets for no purpose or reason at all? To the best of my knowledge I have never seen an alien yet I totally believe that they exist, it would be difficult to honestly believe other wise. Then again there is the issue of, what does an alien actually look like? Personally I have no idea, but I do doubt that they look like humans. Personally I believe in the existence of Angels, I also believe that I have seen and spoken with at least two in my lifetime. I also believe in the existence of Satan and of His Angels, to me, to not believe in both is Biblical ignorance. I personally do not know if I have ever spoken directly with any Demons but I think that there is a very good chance that I have several times. I know that I have experienced being in places and in the presence of a few people where the feeling of pure evil was like a stench in the air, you could feel it, you could almost taste it. Remember, if you spend your life trying to be good and trying your best to be the best follower of Christ that you know how to be, you make yourself a target for the hate of evil ones, humans and otherwise.

The Two Human Creations Of Genesis Chapters One AND Two

Do You Understand The Creation Of Two different Sets Of Humans In Genesis Chapters One AND Two

 

I believe that most folks who have grown up in the western world are at least a little bit familiar with the Bible stories of Adam and Eve and the creation of the world as say Christian and Jewish theology. I would like you to get your Bibles out if you have access to one and please skip to day number six, the day the humans were created. This is found at Gen 1:26-31. If you notice God has already created “man” in His image, “both male and female created He them”. Then in verse 31 chapter number one ends with the end of the Sixth Day of Creation.

 

Now I am just going to quote from the King James Version the first three verses. 1) Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2) And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all the work which He had made. 3) And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made.

 

Not until verse number seven do we first hear of Adam being created, Eve wasn’t created until verse twenty-two. Is this a Biblical contradiction? No, but it does befuddle some folks, just like the ‘apple’ that Eve then Adam ate of. Apple, the word itself is never used, it is something that we have assumed. We are taught that the world began about 5,500-6,000 years ago because that is the best time frame that most Biblical Scholars give us dating back to the time of the Garden of Eden and of Adam and Eve.  I don’t argue that point, I believe that they are correct in those beliefs. Yet I believe that human beings (sort of) have been on this planet at least 100,000 years minimum. Please consider also chapter 2:4 “These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens”. At the end of verse 5 there is an issue that does need to be addressed, “…and there was not a man to till the ground”. Are you thinking now wait a moment didn’t I say that I believe that humans had been upon the face of the globe at least 100,000 years? Yes and I still believe the same way. I am not trying to confuse anyone, of the things I learned in my different history classes I took in college is that human beings just became civilized in the past 10,000 years max. Civilized being determined by when we humans started farming instead of being solely hunter gatherers. This would be in the neighborhood of time that God planted His Garden in the east of Eden.

 

Did I just contradict myself there? Nope, as the title states, two creations of humans. It is just that Adam was not the first male nor Eve the first female. Have I got you a bit confused yet? I’m not trying to confuse you, I’m trying to get you to think and to check into what I am saying for yourself. Just as in chapter 1 verse 26 we first see the plural nouns about God, “let Us, in Our, after Our likeness” etc. Father, Son. We also see by verse 28 God has created people, male and female but no mention of Adam or Eve yet. I personally believe the majority of what the Seventh Day Adventist believe except that part about seven human days of creation. At no point in time would anyone at all rational (in my opinion) believe that all science is a lie or that Moses was referring to human days on our human clock. What I do believe is that God created us gentiles many thousands of years before He created Adam, Eve and The Garden of Eden. You notice that only with Adam and not with us earlier people, that God breathed into him the breath of life and ‘made him a living Soul’. None of those words were spoken in chapter one about us decedents of Cavemen. Are we decedents of gorillas or Chimps? That is not just laughable, it is ignorant and an insult to the Creator of all of us. Evolution, yes of course, just not to levels of pure idiocy.

 

 

Bill Nye Is Only Half Insane

Bill Nye Is Only Half Insane

 

This title is obviously just my opinion of Mr Nye, I do not know the man and I have never met him. My opinion is simply formed by articles I have read on the net where his opinions were down in print. Do I believe that I am smarter than Mr Nye, no I don’t. But in some areas of science and faith (which he seems to have none at all) I know for a fact that I am wiser than he is. I do not blame him or anyone else really for their distorted views on the earths and our creation. The reason for that is simple, I do not personally know of any Christian or Jewish faith that seems to understand the beginning of the first book of the Bible (Genesis). I believe that it was the Apostle Paul who wrote that all people should study (the Scriptures) daily so that we can be a workman that need not be ashamed for our lack of knowledge. As it is also written that when a person is preaching/teaching you that the Scriptures say we should all read/check to see if the things we are being taught it correct or not. Do we ever question our Church leaders about what we hear from the pulpit? How many Christians never or almost never go to Church services or if we do, how many follow the Preachers message in the Bible as he/she is talking? How many people who say we are Christians do not even own one single Bible? If we do own one at home do we even know where we stored it? How many folks could gag from the dust accumulated on its cover?

 

In a recent National Geographic News article Mr Nye was quoted as saying that “evolution is undeniable and creationism is insane”. I respect the man’s position because it is given through a total lack of knowledge of what the Scriptures say. I had this same conversation with Carl Sagen back in 1991 in person when we met in Madison Wisconsin after a speech he gave there. In the discussion he asked me how someone who is as studied (in Scripture) as I am could possibly believe that there is a God that created all things. I asked him how someone who is so knowledgeable and so intelligent could possibly not believe in a Supreme Being (God). If we could only get the churches and the synagogues to open their eyes to the words they read so blindly then maybe, maybe there would be a “coming to Jesus (God) moment” when our eyes begin to see and understand what is there and what isn’t said. There is so much information in the first two chapters of the book of Genesis, it covers several billion human years, NOT just seven human days. The seven human day theory is as Mr Nye says “insane”. Another term would also be “just plain ignorant”. Now saying that someone is ignorant of something by no means is a slap at the person, ignorant just simply means lacking knowledge of a certain event.

 

By faith I am a devout fundamentalist Christian yet I totally believe that our universe and this planet began with the big bang that science believes that it did. I also do believe in evolution, to a certain point. What I do mean by evolution is in the evolving of the human race. Evolving such as the phasing out of one group of humans as they assimilate into another culture such as in how the Neanderthals bred into a slightly more evolved group of humans thus phasing out their race. Breeding a race out of existence is nothing new to humans it has been going on for a long long time. An example would be like the American government back in the late 1800’s when political and military opinion was to wipe out the Native Indian people’s. You kill all the males and then bred with the females. In just a very few generations of mixing blood the American Indian people would have only been in a few history books. Some evolution cycles throughout history have been forced but most were of nature weeding out the sick and the stupid.

 

One of the first things that people need to do when we seek knowledge that is given through the Scriptures is to pray first before we study and that (studying) needs to be a daily part of our lives just like setting aside a few moments a day for prayer should be an automatic for us. When we read Scripture we need to do it with an open mind, not a mindset of trying to prove a “Church doctrine” to be the Truth. If people pay attention to the words written down in the first two chapters of the Bible you should notice very plainly that there are two “human” creations. This understanding of this fact is very helpful in understanding that the seven human days of creation are not at all correct. God most of the time speaks what He wishes done, then puts the building blocks into place to then form His wishes into existence.

 

Time is the issue here in the argument that Mr Nye puts forth in his argument about creationism and he is correct on that issue. People need to understand time differences, they exist all around us but we humans choose to not understand. Look at the other planets that revolve around our Sun, check out each planets length of a day, they all differ from each other. Look at different living creatures on our own planet, dogs, cats, starfish, seahorses, the list is very long, look how long their life cycles are. To these other creatures of God’s hands, do you think a dog realizes that his ratio is different from ours? Why can’t we humans realize that our time is different from Gods time even when the Scriptures tell us pointedly of this fact? Until people who believe that the Bible is the Word of God and starts reading/studying it with an open mind, not one that is predetermined by a Church Doctrine our eyes will never be opened to the understanding of what God is telling all of us. Until we do this as a Nation and as a World People then there will always be this ignorant discussion like the one Mr Nye uses when he shows us all his lack of knowledge concerning God, God’s Word, and Time it’s self. But to his defense he is in an argument with people who are lacking the understanding of the very issue they are using to make their argument with in the first place!

Science And The Bible Agree On The Beginning Of Time People Just Don’t Realize It

Science And The Bible Agree On The Beginning Of Time People Just Don’t Realize It

 

I hope that this title was able to get the attention of as many people as possible. Please, after you have read this, with and open mind, I hope that you will forward it onto all the people you know.

 

Are you familiar with the term “lying by omission”? My spouse uses that one on me every once in a while. She usually gets on me about it when she asks me things like how are you feeling today and I fail to inform her of each and everything that hurts that day. Sometimes if I just give her a general kind of canned answer is because I feel some things are not important enough to mention, sometimes I don’t feel like a conversation that to me just sounds like whining so I just say I’m okay instead. She says that is lying by omission, I guess that the correct answer is dependent on the feelings of the beholder.

 

There is a reason for the upper paragraph. I am going to use this type of example in regards to the Bible’s very first book, the book of Genesis. Whether you are familiar with this book or not I ask you to please reread the first two chapters then come back to this post. You often hear people say “the Bible says this or the Bible doesn’t say that”. In my life I have noticed that most of the time people do not have any idea what the Bible says about most things because they are going on hear say evidence, not on the facts they might learn if they actually opened it up once in a while and read things on their own.  But it is an obvious truth that the Bible doesn’t tell us everything about everything. For examples the Scriptures don’t say anything about dinosaurs so being it doesn’t is it lying by omission? Well, it doesn’t say anything about jet planes or automobiles either, or if the Chicago Cubs will ever win another World Series, so what does all of that mean? If Moses, “a friend of God”, didn’t write it down does that mean they didn’t or won’t exist? Sometimes we humans actually need to use some basic common sense to be able to see through our own bias, ignorance, and hatreds.

 

With this paragraph I would like to address issues about the beginning of the Earth and how people of the Christian and Jewish faiths don’t understand the obvious things about those first two chapters of Genesis. Do you think if Moses had written (or even knew about) the things written above and had spelled it out to the people do you think the people would have listened to him, or would they have laughed him to scorn or even stoned him to death for being totally crazy? The Scriptures speak several times about how God’s time (clock) and ours are not the same yet people, even those of faith, believe that the Earth and all things on it were created in six human days. Pardon folks, but that is obvious stupidity. If you pay attention, or even bother to read the Scriptures they are littered with examples/occasions where God spoke to His Prophets about things that were to come like with the great walled city of Nineveh how it would come down and the cities massive walls destroyed by water. A couple of generations after the warnings from the Prophet Jonah the flood waters knocked down one corner and her enemies rushed in and slaughtered them. God very often speaks events and the building blocks of His words then occur. I do not know what one of Gods days are but it is very plain it is not our days. Think about it, every planet in our solar system has a different amount of time in its rotation around the Sun. I as a devout Christian have no doubt about the occurrence of the “Big Bang”.

 

I have no doubt at all that the world is billions of years old like scientist say it is and that there is such a thing as evolution, just not to the point that science through their lack of knowledge and faith speak of. One of the things that is very important for people to understand is spelled out very plainly in the first and second chapter that there were TWO HUMAN CREATIONS. Go back, read it again, in the first chapter on day six God created man and he created woman and then on the seventh day He rested from His work. Then, in the second chapter after all those things were done He created His garden (Eden) and then He created Adam and a little bit later created Eve. Two creations folks, the first human creation was the gentiles, that is you and me folks, we are not of “the royal blood line”. We humans did not crawl out of the sea nor did we evolve from monkeys. It was thousands of years before Adam and Eve that God populated the Earth with humans. Humans as we know us to be now, no. Before He created that “royal blood line”(Adam and Eve) God dispersed gentiles among all the lands of the Earth, but we did evolve one from another. People question where different types of people vanished to, why they went extinct, the answer is simple, they were bred out. This is evolution, there is truly a missing link or two or three between gorillas and the gentile human race that never existed this is why science will never find it.

 

Most Christian people want to think our lineage goes back to Adam and Eve and at least here in America our egos refuse to accept the obvious and that is that we are not all related. The Jew and the Greek/gentile, from the beginning of Scripture all the way through the last book (Revelation) we are spoken of as two people’s. Even Jesus Himself in referring to the gentiles as “before this time were not a people” and He even referred to us Gentiles as “dogs”. We did not “become a people” until after the resurrection of Jesus. Through Christians ignorance we don’t believe science and atheist science through their ignorance don’t believe the Bible. It appears that through lack of knowledge on both sides the greatest errors are humans not God’s. Please think about these things, these are things I have never heard in any church building, Synagogue, or Mosque, it is revelations shown to me through much study and much prayer. These ‘Revelations’ are not just to me, they are there for everyone to see, to read, and to understand. We are all children of God now, we will all answer for our own good and our own sins. We are all brothers and sisters, it is only in our ignorance that we look down our noses at others, and we will all individually answer for our own stupidity at Christs Judgement Seat after we die. Study the Scriptures daily to see if the things we are being told in our houses of worship are the truth or not so that we do not have to be ashamed at our own judgement. The people who write the science books desperately need to do the same. In both instances both have somethings correct, and through lack of knowledge, both have some things wrong.
