Bible Codes
Chuck Missler wrote a book that has excellent work on the topic.
Bible in Hebrew contains codes that can not be explained as accidental.
Put all the Hebrew letters in a computer without punctuation and do a search for Hitler.
Every 22 letters gave Hitler. Every 13 letters gave "The bitter sea of Auschwitz" other places in same book gave "King of Nazi's, a people cry murder, slaughter"
2 secular Hebrew scholars and 3 mathematicians discovered the code.
It is an amazing study but I don't know if it is true.

Ica Stones show a Chief looking through a telescope at flying object.
UFOs may be naturally occurring objects.
Weather balloons,
Swamp gas - Burp from rotting vegetation
As gas goes up in atmosphere it produces wavy air like hot blacktop.
Top secret government air craft.
Satanically operated vehicle.
The devil will have to come up with some sort of excuse of why millions of people have gone missing at the rapture.
He probably would start a few hundred years early to convince people.
Several books on the topic.
Stan Deyo - The Cosmic Conspiracy
Top secret government craft use electrogravitic propulsion.
A jet produces G forces from the engine pushing on the plane that pushes on you so you experience the G forces too.
Electrogravitic propulsion every molecule gets moved so there is no G forces.
Many people describe UFO crafts that start going in one direction very fast then take a sudden 90 deg turn that would be impossible with other propulsion means.

How long were Adam and Eve in the garden?
At the most 120 years.
First date given is when Seth was born.

How old were Cain and Able?
Did Adam and Eve have other children when Cain killed Able?
Scripture does not say.

Where is the Garden of Eden?
In Genesis there are 4 rivers that run into one river and one is called Euphrates so people look at a river in the middle east and say that must have been where the garden was.
This just means that when they got off the ark they saw a river that reminded them or the one on the pre-flood world and named it after it.
We have New York, New Hampshire, Moscow in the US but none of them are the original countries they are just named after them.
Rivers act much differently now days.
Rivers start as many rivers and become one, not split into 4 rivers like described.

Mark of the Beast.
100 years ago they thought the mark would be ink on paper.
Revelation 13:16-17
[16] And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
[17] And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Note it says mark IN hand or forehead not ON.
1972 bar code invented
Computers can only count to 1 so binary code was created.
8 bits = 1 byte = 1 letter
bit is 0 or 1
laser shines across the bar code and sees dark light and interprets it as 1 and 0.
Fat black line equals 3 lines together.
1 thick line = 11111
first middle and end all have guard bars that have the equivalent of 6.
One thick line and a thin line
0001101 = 1110010 = zero
0101111 = 1010000 = six
exact opposites on bar code are equal
two black lines with space in between.
UPC - universal product code.
The ones your library has are different because they are not the same standard.
Left side of the code is information on where the product is made and what it is and on the right is a place for the shop keeper to enter the price .

Microchip the size of grain of rice.
$4-5 per chip.
Injected under skin using large needle.
Put in pets to find them if they are lost.
Take the chip and walk past a reader and it will list your information.
Chip only contains a number that is linked to database with your info.
Chip in your car can find you with the satellites if your car is stolen.
Can track everywhere you have been.
Words 5480, 5482 in Strong's reference bible has the word mark and it can be described as the same word that is used for etching, a graver, the tool used for engraving, the expressed image, to sharpen to a point.
A chip is an engraved piece of silicone that gets pierced with a needle.

HAARP Technology
High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program
If you microwave the sky hot air expands and you can create a lens in the atmosphere.
You can create a lens over a country to cause it to never rain and starve them out or make it effect another area by causing floods.
Virtual mirror
Book - Angles don't play this HAARP

ELF - Extremely low frequency
1992 had satellites to count the cows and make sure you were not cheating on your income taxes saying you had 1000 cows when you actually had 10000.

Revelation 14:11
[11] And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
The word AND is important indicating that you will not burn if you only have the mark yet not worship the beast.
Babies may be injected at birth with the mark and not have a choice.

Shroud of Turin
Holes in hands.
When Romans crucified they nailed in the wrists.
They would use a board with a nail through it to prevent the nail from going all the way through the bone and rip out of the hand.
Hand is considered everything before the elbow.
Carbon dated 2000 years old - doesn't mean anything even if carbon dating did work.
John 20:6-7
[6] Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,
[7] And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
Different head piece than the rest of the body
Isiah 50:6
[6] I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.
Jesus had his hair removed when he was crucified
He probably had a beard when alive because that was the custom of the time but not when burried.
It can not be the shroud Jesus was buried in.

Do you have a PhD?
Ad homonym attack.
Doctor of philosophy
Midwest Baptist College 1974
Masters and Doctors from Patriot University in CO
Ministry of Hilltop Baptist courses
Non-accredited school - 400 students.
I worked hard for my degree - how hard did you work for yours?
Harvard, Yale, Princeton are all non-accredited schools.

Who wrote Genesis?
Skeptics say there were 4 different authors to try to remove creditability.
Henry Morris Defenders Bible has good explanation.
Genesis 38 talks about raising seed for your brother if he dies and leaves a widow so skeptics say in Luke when it says 'what master Moses wrote' about that topic they are referring to Genesis so that proves Moses wrote Genesis.
The same thing is also talked about in Deuteronomy and Moses is definitely the author of that.
Moses was the editor of Genesis.
The phrase "These are the generations of ..." is the author signing off.
Adam, Noah, Noah's sons all wrote a section.
Several different styles of writing
Chapter 1 the word God appeared 31 times.
Adam used the words Lord God.
Babylonians have some books older than Genesis.
Moses did not write Genesis so the copies we have were writen after the Sumerian books.
Shem 11:10
Tera 11:27
Ishmael 25:12

Two things that depend on each other to survive.
Some flowers can only be pollinated by a certain fly and those fly's only lay eggs on certain types of flowers.
If one of them dies the entire population will disappear in one generation.
Clown fish and jelly fish
Had to be created simultaneously

Why don't we have giant insects today?
Insects suck oxygen in through holes in their skin and have no diaphragm like us to move the air.
Surface area to Volume ratio problem.
1x1x1 cube - V= 1, SA = 6 6:1 Ratio
2x2x2 cube - V = 8, SA = 24 3:1 Ratio
3x3x3 cube - V = 27, SA = 54 2:1 Ratio
.1x.1x.1 cube 60:1 Ratio
.01x.01x.01 cube 600:1 Ratio
Small insects are almost all skin and no volume
If an ant falls from an airplane it falls slowly similar to a human falling threw peanut butter.
Video #2 - 15" cockroach, 8 1/2' centipede, 2' grass hopper
Something was different before the flood.
More air pressure before the flood would explain the large insects.
Walt Brown's book claims there was no canopy and he can not explain the insect problem.

Is the sun shrinking?
Measurements from an observatory in England over the last 150 years show the sun is shrinking vertically and horizontally.
Sun is egg shaped because it is spinning.
This used to be used as a proof of an young earth because if the sun is burning due to gravitational collapse then it will continue to shrink and burn out however if it is burning with nuclear fusion then the variations could just mean the sun shrinks and swells.
If burning with fusion then it would produce neutrinos but scientists can not find any.
They have created giant tanks to try to capture them but never catch any.
No one knows how the sun burns.

Red Sea crossing.
Why is there no sign of an entire army drowning in the red sea?
Some claim there was no miracle but they crossed where it was ankle deep.
That is an even bigger miracle because how does an entire army drown in ankle deep water?
May have been been an asteroid strike on the exact opposite side of the earth causing a tidal wave to go around planet on both sides at exact same time to meet in the read sea and part at the right place for Moses to cross.
If that was true that would also require divine intervention to have it happen at the exact right time and place.
Exodus 14:25
[25] And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians.
God took off the chariot wheels.
The Red Sea has two gulf's. Gulf of Suez and Gulf of Aqaba
Most bibles today have a triangle indicating Mt. Sinai with a question mark by it.
A Phoenician princess (or something like that) was riding past and said "That is Mt. Sinai" even thought she had no reason why but she thought so.
Why did it take Pharaoh 3 days to catch up to them if they were in the Gulf of Aqaba?
Rocks all over the place that have been pushed out of the way for wagons.
There is a large beach at the south end.
Ron Wyatt found pillar saying "This pillar is here to commemorate the crossing of the Red Sea"
He then went to the other side and found another one .
They got arrested because they crossed illegally because the Saudi government would not let them in and were tossed in jail.
8-9 miles across the gulf
The depth of the water is 5000ft for most of the gulf however at the middle it is only 900 ft deep.
Bible says there was a wall of water.
Aaron - underwater path - at edge they went scuba diving as deep as they could go and found chariot wheels with no chariots and chariots without wheels, horse skeletons.
Wyatt Museum - 4, 6, 8 spoke wheels on chariots
The Egyptian dynasty at the time of Moses is the only one to use all three types of wheels at the same time.
Mountain in Saudi Arabia called Mt. of Laws
Galatians 4:25-26
[24] Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. [25] For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
Says right there that Mt Sinai is in Arabia.
Mountain is still black on the top.
There is an alter at the bottom.
Lots of bibles show a picture of a small stream coming out of the rock that moses struck for water.
How long would it take to provide enough water for 2 million people and their cattle with a stream trickling out of a rock?
They found a rock as tall as a 5 story building cracked in half and errosion marks on both sides.
Ron Wyatt also found Sodom and Gomorrah
Cliffs of sulfur.
Millions of sulfur balls.
Scrape off the white and there is yellow sulfur inside of it.
Found no place else in the world but that spot.
I don't know if it is Sodom and Gomorrah but it could be.

What is a Unicorn?
I don't know.
Bible says strength of a unicorn in Job.
Unicorn similar to animal you would plow with but could not because it is wild and untameable.
Doubt it would be a horse with a horn on his head but it could have been.
Could be on of the one horned dinosaurs.
Reptiles are impossible to tame.

Wisdom teeth prove evolution.
Jaw is getting smaller proves evolution.
That is the opposite of evolution.
If you grew 10 ft tall and lived to be 900 you would probably still be an adolescent until 25.

Should Christians be observing the sabbath?
Exodus 20:8
[8] Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
[9] Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
[10] But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
You are not to allow anyone else to do work on the sabbath also.
If you did you would be put to death.
Exodus 13
[13] Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.
[16] Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
[17] It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. Sabbath for children of Israel. (I am not from Israel)
Nehemiah 9:14
[14] And madest known unto them thy holy sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant
They did not even know when the sabbath was until Moses went up on Mt Sinai.
Children of Israel not to light a fire, furnace, hot water, start car.
Let no man go out of his place on the sabbath.
How can there be Seventh Day Adventist Churches?

If you have questions call.
I get 1000 e-mails per week and can not answer them all.
Skeptics say that because I did not answer that means I am afraid of them.
I just don't have time to give long responses.

CSE-104 Class 9 Notes

CSE 104 - Class 9

Let there be light.
or - light
ma'or - light source
High frequency sound can create light in water - God's voice.
24 hour day is one spin of the earth.
If sun was gone we would still have a 24 hour day.
Since God is light he can make light without a source.
God is the source of life not the sun.

Mr. Flat and Mrs. Flat.
Two pieces of paper on a table.
They live in a two dimensional world
He only sees 1 dimension and perceives the second dimension.
We see width and height and perceive depth.
So how do I reveal my 3 dimensional self to Mr and Mrs Flat?
Put 1 finger through the table by Mr Flat and he sees a circle.
Put 3 fingers through the table by Mrs Flat and she sees three circles.
They have an argument weather I am one circle or two circles but both are right yet both are completely wrong.

Ephesians 3:18-19
[18] May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
[19] And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
God has 4 dimensions.
Understanding that passes knowledge - Think about that too long it will make your head hurt.
I am outside of their world but can be closer to them than they can be to each other. (Put your hand on top of paper)
Where do the races come from?
No question that there are different skin colors but there is only one race.
4 theories
Adam was medium brown.
1. Adam had all 4 races in the first generation. That is possible and happens today.
2. Dark skin is the mark of Cain. - wicked theory
Mormon doctrine
Negro's should be excluded form Mormonism until they found out they could play basketball for Brigham Young University.
"Negroes in this life are denied the Priesthood; under no circumstances can they hold this delegation of authority from the Almighty. (Abra. 1:20-27.)
Negro's are not equal with other races, It is the lords doing because of the lack of spiritual values in their first estate.
Mormons believe Adam went to heaven and became God of this world. If you are a good Mormon you will go to heaven and become God of your own world. Adam is in heaven now having sex with his many wives and they produce spirit babies. If it is a good spirit baby it gets sent to Earth with a light skinned body, if it is a bad spirit baby it gets a dark skin body.
Book - Hidden history of the Mormon
Curse of Cain being skin color is un-scriptural.
Problem with it is that Noah's family would have eliminated the entire population of dark skin.

3. Curse of Canaan
Genesis 9:24
There may have been no alcohol before the flood.
Hyperbaric conditions may prevent juice from fermenting.
Noah used to making grape juice and letting it sit for years and had no problem pre-flood and may have gotten drunk on accident.
Can not be proven but Noah was a preacher of righteousness so giving him the benefit of the doubt is best.
Noah became drunk off his wine and was naked in his tent. Ham came in and went to his brothers and laughed then the other brothers walked in backwards and covered him. When Noah found out he said cursed be Canaan.
A servant of servants he will be.
Why did he curse Canaan?
USA is 13% black.
A survey will show a higher amount of blacks in servant positions than leadership.
Does not prove anything.

4. Tower of Babel
Nimrod wanted to make a tower to heaven.
May have designed it to be high enough to survive another flood.
May have built it in spite of Gods command.

Genesis 10:5
[5] By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
Not just tongues confused but nations.
Genesis 10:32
[32] These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood. They created the nationalities.

Japheth had 14 kids and grand kids
Ham had 31 kids
Canaan cursed

Egypt is the land of Ham
Psalms 105:27
[26] He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.
[27] They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.
Psalms 106:22
[21] They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;
[22] Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea.

Japheth Europeans
Shem Orientals
Living near equator does not give you black skin anymore than loosing an arm causes your kids to loose be missing an arm at birth.
More melanin in your skin allows you to stay in the sun longer with out a problem.
Shem had 29 kids and grand kids

May have been 75 original languages at tower of babel.
Now there are probably 6000 languages.
English, German, Danish all have common structure.
Old English is now almost unreadable compared to todays English.
Words in Australia mean completely different things as they do here.
Napkin - diaper
Nurse baby - hold baby
If there was no rapid communication the languages would still change.
Spanish, French, Italian have common structure.

Acts 17:26
[26] And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
All nations are one blood.
Malachi 2:10
[10] Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers? We have one father.

Amoeba - One cell splits into two Asexual
They moved one chromosome from one cell to another.
1 chromosome is 6-7ft long.
There are 50 trillion cells in your body.
One persons chromosome unwound would reach from here to the moon and back 5 million times.
All your DNA would fill 2 tablespoons
1 Chromosome from each person in the world (enough information to recreate every person alive) would fit into an Aspirin.
Dolly costed $50000 and had 277 failures.
Sheep can do this much quicker and cheaper.
Problem with Dolley was she aged faster than normal.
Chromosomes loose information on the ends of them as you get older and since they used a 4 year old sheep when Dolley was 2 years old it was more like she was 6 physically.
Would a clone have a soul?
Yes. If someone takes fertility pills and has quadruplets they all have souls.

If God created a perfect world why are there poisonous snakes?
Problems in the world do not disprove the world was perfect.
We are a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy ...... of a copy of Adam.
Like looking at a car in a junk yard and saying it they did not know how to build a car because it is crashed.
Hyperbaric conditions neutralize poison.
Electric shock applied to the bite neutralizes snake/spider venom.
Venom is a tangled up protein so the body attacks it.
The electric shock straightens out the protein.
If it has been more than 30 minutes shock the bite and 1/2 way to the heart and the back of the bite.
Hemotoxic - effects blood stream
Neruotoxic - Effects nervous system

3 arks mentioned in the bible.
Noah's, Moses (Put in reeds), Ark of Covenant
Mercy seat, 10 commandments, manna, walking stick
Jeremiah 52 - They took cups, candle sticks, bowls out of Jerusalem and into Babylon by Nebuchadrezzar
Ezra 1 - Lists 29 knives, basins of silver and gold, etc.
No Ark of Covenant.
Wouldn't they have mentioned something that important?

Ron Wyatt found the Ark of Covenant
North side of Jerusalem he was walking with Israelite friend getting tour and he stuck out his hand and pointed at a pile of rock and garbage and his mouth said "That is Jeremiah's grotto, that is where the ark of the covenant is".
King Uzziah make sling shots that threw stones - catapult
Nebuchadrezzar built a wall outside of the range of his catapults and put Jerusalem under siege.
Between the wall of Jerusalem and Nebuchadrezzar's wall there was no mans land.
Ron figures that Jeremiah knew that they would loose and he hid the ark and some important furniture outside the city wall in a cave where no one would find it. Ron spent 8 years digging through the garbage dumb (whenever he got a chance to go over there) .
As they went down he found three squares chiseled into the rock on the side of the cliff. They came to a ledge with a square hole in it that was 2 1/2 feet deep. Hole was probably to put a cross in. The 3 squares were to put the charges of the criminals in. Further down there were 3 more square holes for crosses so they could crucify 4 people at a time with the important person on the top. They found hundreds of baseball sized rocks and further down found many fragments of finger bones. Upon the ledge there was a 1/2 inch crack running down through the solid rock straight out of the square hole. They found may caves going everywhere that had so small of openings they had to exhale to get into them. Ron squeezed into one of the caves and it lead into a bigger chamber. He saw gold reflection with his light and found the shew bread. There was a box made out of solid rock close to the ceiling. The cover had a crack in it half way through and partly moved away. They measured the crack in the cover and the one from the square hole and they lined up. Ron thinks Jesus was crucified here and the "rocks rent". Ron thought hard about touching the ark because he knew what happened to the last person that touched it but since he was a Christian with his sins forgiven and King Uzza only had his sins covered he figured it was alright for him to touch it. So he finally opened the lid and inside were the 10 commandments but no staff or manna. Ron did not want to move it because he did not want to start WW3 with the Muslims so he reported it to the authorities. Ark had 2 angles on the cover and was covered in black dried blood that was also on the floor and ceiling coming from the crack. Ron took it and had it analyzed and it was human but had 23 chromosomes.
Uzza touched the ark and God killed him.

God's name in Jerusalem
Hebrew schen is the symbol for God.
Numbers 6:27
[27] And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.
1 Kings 9:3
2 Kings 21:4
2 Kings 21:7
2 Chronicles 33:7
Jerusalem has 3 valleys that make up a schen

Patterson-Gimlin video most famous
several people have claimed to see them.
7-8 ft tall and stink.
They run very fast.
Once it got moving it went 20' per step.
Have red eyes - maybe just the light reflecting.
Do not know if they are real or a fake.

Who were the Nephilim?
Genesis 6:2
[2] That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
1. Could have been the Godly line of Seth that begun to marry the decedents of Cain.
That would not produce anything genetically odd such as giants.
2. sons of God are fallen angles
Henry Morris - Defenders Bible gives several references to other verses in scripture that support this theory.
1/3 of the angles may have left at the fall of Satan.
Legends of Zeus and other Greek gods may have come from this.
Chuck Missler book - Return of the Nephilim
The angles involved in this are already in hell because they drown in the flood and the rest of the fallen angles are still on earth.
When Jesus cast out the many devils from the man he said
Matthew 8:29
[29] And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
"Before our time" would indicate they too would be going to hell to be tormented.
Angles in the bible always take on the body of a man.

120 Years
Genesis 6:3
[3] And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Some have said that this means no man will live to be over 120 years old so the bible is wrong because there are documented cases of people living to 140 in China.
May mean God gave Noah a 120 year warning that the flood was coming.
The "giants" may not even be talking about the sons of God and daughters of men - it may be two different thoughts in the same sentence.
Read it carefully - it may be but it might not be.

CSE-104 Class 8 Notes

CSE 104 - Class 8

Fresh dinosaur bones.
Now there is a real controversy on weather it is a heart or not.
How could anything survive a change from a 3 chambered to a 4 chambered heart?
Why are there so few human fossils found?
Book - Bones of Contention
There have been 4000 human remains found.
Trillions of fish fossils are found and billions of plants and animals.
At the time of creation when God created the world it was full of fish, plants, and animals and only 2 people.
2000 years later at the flood it was even more full of fish, plants, and animals but still not that many people.
There could have been as many as 1/2 billion people pre-flood but there is no way to know for sure.
People may have had huge families - 200 children.
The purpose of the flood was to destroy man.
Genesis 6:7
[7] And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
Genesis 6:4
[4] There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
On the earth in those days people grew taller than today.
Since the people digging for bones have a preconceived notion that man was smaller and are getting bigger and smarter if they find a leg bone from a 12' tall person they would not think it was human.
Giant bones have been found.
The government of Turkey claims they have found Noah's grave and Noah is 12' tall.
1. Less people were on the earth to be killed.
2. People were smarter so they would be the last to die and would wind up on the surface and rot instead of be buried.
Millions of buffalo were killed on the planes to try to starve out the Indians.
How many of them were fossilized?
None of them - they all roted.
Fossils have to be buried to fossilize.
Most fossils formed in the flood of Noah.
3. If humans were bigger they would probably not be recognized as human due to the finders preconceived ideas.

Where did the pitch from? Isn't pitch made from oil?
Pitch is a thick tenacious substance made from pine trees.
There was an entire industry making pitch long before the first oil well.
1828 in Pennsylvania the first commercial oil well was drilled.
They had wooden ships long before that.
Today you can boil pine tree sap and make all sorts of products.
Websters 1928 dictionary defined pitch as resin of pine or turpentine used in caulking of ships and paying the bottom and sides.

Was ancient man primitive?
Book - Puzzle of Ancient man
In Columbia South America they found a plane in a 1000 year old grave.
Smithsonian called it a stylized insect.
Airplane found in 2100 year old Egyptian tomb.
There are 20,000 ton stones stacked in place.
Today the largest cranes can only lift 3,000 tons.
Iron pot and bell are found in coal.
Ship that sunk in 100BC had a analog computer onboard.
Iraq a ancient battery was found.

Brain surgery marks found on skulls and some that have healed over proving they lived.
Metalic spheres found with 3 lines going around the equator.
Found in 2.8 billion year old layer in south Africa.
Hundreds of these spheres have been found in the bottom of a mine.

Book - Hidden History of the Human Race
Written by Michael Cremo (Hindu)
He believes in evolution so when something is found in 2.8 billion year old rock he believes it was put there 2.5 billion years ago possibly by aliens.

Coso artifact found in 1961 in California.
4300 ft above sea level
340 ft above dry Owens lake.
Porcelain with wire running through the center.
Thought to be 1000 years old
Very similar to a super conductor capacitor.

Nano-technology spiral shaped objects found in Russia by rivers and streams near Moscow.
3-12 meters under water level.
Range in size from 0.003mm (1/10,000th of an inch) to 1.5 inches
Spiral is in the golden ratio.
Made of copper or tungsten and molybdenum.
Melting point from 4740 F to 6100 F.
How did they make these?
Pre-flood not only smarter but better eye sight.

Great pyramid
67 pyramids and 66 are copies of the great pyramid.
All the rest have hieroglyphics saying who built the pyramid except the great pyramid.
May be an Egyptian building or an alter to God.
Isaiah 19:19
[19] In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.
Largest building in the world by volume.
Take the next 99 largest volume buildings in the world and they together would not be the same volume.
Pyramid 480 feet tall.
Some of the stones are 70 tons.
How do you get 70 ton stones 400 feet off the ground?
Door not discovered until 800AD
Oldest Egyptian records say they do not know where it came from.
Stones so perfectly cut that a piece of paper could not be fit inbetween.
There are two paths - narrow way to the kings chamber and broad way to the pit.
Was covered in 144,000 casing stones. (interesting number)
Revelation - 144,000 Jews saved.
Chief corner stone never put in place.
Some say Adam made it, some Noah or Enoch.
Kings chamber has an empty tomb with same volume as the ark of the covenant.
Jesus Christ is the chief corner stone.
5 sides is same number as grace.
Corner stone is useless until it is needed - can't put anything on it or use it as a table.
Daniel 2:34
[34] Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Occult symbol on the $1 bill.
Desert behind the pyramid and green plants in front symbol of how they are going to make the wasteland better.

Was Earth ever a molten mass?
Bible says earth created under water.
Robert Gentry - polonium halos
Found in granite all over the world.
Polonium atoms decay and explode creating miniature spheres.
If the rock was molten then the sphere would dissipate in the liquid rock.

Global Warming
Most people worried about global warming live near beach.
Ice caps melt and the water rises.
Environmental movement front for communists to take away your liberty's.

Green river formation
Strata of rock with millions of thin layers.
Stone contains layers of pollen only produced in the spring and pollen only produced in the fall.
Millions of layers of spring - fall - spring - fall means millions of years.
Take a chunk of several layers and crush it up and put it in water.
It will form layers again.

Mars Rock.
Life here came from Mars.
Mars lander ran many tests and did not find even a trace of a germ.
Rock ALH001,0
Looked at it under a microscope and saw squiggly line.
Mars is .5 AU away.
Something large enough to hit mars and send a chunk to the earth would have created so much heat on impact it would have destroyed any sign of life.
Wouldn't re-entry to earth have destroyed any sign of life?
Couldn't sitting in Antarctica for thousands of years contaminated the sample?
There is no poof it was from Mars.
46 Million miles away
Claim it broke off 16 million years ago and landed 13,000 years ago.
Hod did the bacteria survive the explosion, freezing space, and re-entry?
What did they eat for thousands of years?
While this was going on NASA grant money was stalled in congress.
Congress was not going to approve vote to spend millions for NASA.
They had th rock in storage for 7 years previous and pulled it out and said it was from Mars to get the funding.
Once the money was released they admitted to making a mistake and that it was not life but pyroxene and carbonate crystals that form naturaly.

Bible says Eve is the mother of all living
Theistic evolution - maybe God used evolution
Hugh Ross says he is not a Theistic Evolutionist but he believes many of the same things they do.
Could God have used evolution?
Not the God of the bible.
It is against the teaching in the bible.
Jacque Monod - Survival of the fittest is cruel and evil. It is a blind and most cruel way of selecting new species and is against modern ethics. I am surprised that a Christian would believe in this process. An ideal society is a non-selective one.

The God of evolution is not the protestant waste not want not God of the bible. He is also not a loving God that cares about his work. Certainly not a God that anyone would want to prey to.

Genesis 2 - God ended his work of creating.
It is not an ongoing process.
Death before sin.
1 Corinthians 15:21-22
[21] For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. [22] For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

God made Adam in his image from the dust of the ground and made Eve from Adam's rib.
God of evolution is stupid and not a real God because he can not do it right the first time.
Evolution nullifies the need for Christ since Christ was redeeming us from our sins.
There is no evidence anyway.
Why compromise a perfectly good Bible when it has never been proven wrong.

Has the pope ever accepted evolution?
Yes, but I wouldn't believe any pope.
Pope John Paul III sold cyanide to the Germans during WWII and after the war feared for his life so he hid as a priest.

Are there contradictions in the bible?
It depends on what bible you use.
There are none in the KJV.

Genesis 1 Genesis 2
Birds on Day 5 Birds on day 6
Birds from water Birds from dirt
Animals before man Animals after man

Genesis 1 is the account of the entire creation. Genesis 2 is a description of what happened in the Garden of Eden after Adam was made.

Day 6 God made Adam, trees, one of each animal, and women.
God did it all in front of Adam so he would know God was the creator and so he could choose a wife.
Eve was the only one that did not see God create anything so Satan came to her.
1 Timothy 2:14
[14] And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
Adam was not tricked but became sin to save Eve.

Solomons brass bowl.
5 cubits high, 30 cubits circumference, 10 cubits diameter.
Math is wrong - should be 31.4 cubit circumference.
Thickness was a handbredth
Hand to cubit ratio is .14.
Inside circumference was 30 cubits outside diameter was 10 cubits math works.

2 Chronicles 9 and 1 Kings 4
How many horses did Solomon have?
forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots
four thousand stalls for horses and chariots
40,000 horses - 4,000 stalls
Two authors telling the same story.
10 horses per chariot
Horses get shot as much as people.

2 Samuel 10
the men of seven hundred chariots
1 Chronicles 19
seven thousand men which fought in chariots
There were 10 men per chariot
Many new versions have messed it up by trying to fix it.
NIV 4000 stalls 12000 horses
NAS - Correct
NRSV - Wrong

Peter Ruckman - The "Errors" in the King James Bible.
He defends 500 supposed contradictions in the KJV bible.
Leviticus - Rabbits do not eat cud.
Rabits eat their food, partially digest it then after they pass it they eat it again.
Acts 12:4 - Easter
Shouldn't it be passover?
Exodus 12 - This month should be the first month of the year for you. The 10th day (April 10) take a lamb, keep it till the 14th day (April 14) and kill it and put blood on top and sides of doorway.
First passover was at night.
Lord's Passover 14th of April.
This day should be a memorial for you and a feast.
Seven days should you eat unleavened bread.
Numbers 28:16-17
[16] And in the fourteenth day of the first month is the passover of the LORD. [17] And in the fifteenth day of this month is the feast: seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten.

Passover first, then days of unleavened bread.
Ishtar - (Easter) pagan festival symbolized spring, rebirth, bunnies, playboy, fertility.
Peter was arrested during days of unleavened bread.
After passover Herod wanted to kill him at easter

Genesis 10 - God divided language
Genesis 11 - world of one language
Like a newspaper headline - Bus crash kills 40 - The bus was driving down the road....
Genesis 10 tells the main point and Genesis 11 elaborates on it.

1 Corinthians 23000 die in one day
Numbers 25 24000 died
1000 died on a different day

Textus Receptus
Alexandrian Manuscripts

People would copy the bible off of scrolls.
Someone would copy it every day for several years and when the original was worn out they would discard it and keep coping off a copy.
God told the profits what to write and after a few hundred years there were hundreds of copies.
Copies would get spread around world and they would have no contact between the two copies.
200-300 AD Alexandria Egypt claimed to be Christian but were a cult and did not believe in the deity of Christ.
They made their own copy of the scrolls and made slight changes.
Where it said 'Lord Jesus Christ' theirs say 'Jesus Christ'
The church go a copy and said it was no good.
The cult dissolved and the church went on using the good copies.
In 1400 there were 5000 copies that were all the same and they make the KJV bible from them.
Westcott and Hort used Alexandrian Manuscripts because they were older than the rest (correct) so they must be better (WRONG)

CSE-104 Class 7 Notes

CSE 104 - Class 7

Why did God use a flood? Why not just kill all the bad people?

Flood leaves evidence. Miracles do not.
Effects of the flood still are around to remind us.
Looking at fossils should remind us of death and suffering and that God hates sin.
Satan has twisted this to make people think of evolution.
Building an ark gives people time to repent.
1 Peter 3:20
[20] Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

Is the sun shrinking?
Recorded measurements of the sun over the past 150 years indicate the sun is shrinking.
Evolutionists say this is because sun oscillates - it shrinks than expands.
An average of 5 feet of diameter the sun is loosing per hour.
This is not in Seminar 1 any more because no one really knows how the sun is burning.
It could be due to gravitational collapse and the heat created by gravity keeps it burning.
Another theory is that the sun burns with nuclear fusion.
Problem is that the sun should then be emitting neutrinos.
Neutrinos are so small they should pass through anything including the earth.
When they go through dry cleaning fluid they create argon gas.
Scientists took a old mine in bottom of mountain and created a giant tank to capture neutrinos.
Deep underground prevents surface neutrinos from interfering.
After several years they found very few neutrinos and concluded that they didn't know how the sun was burning.

Sun shrinking 5 ft per hour diameter not radius.
In billions of years it would be touching the earth.
Sun is loosing mass at 5,000,000 (five million) tons per second.
As the sun looses mass it decreases its gravitational pull so in the past the pull must have been stronger.
Sun could not have been burning for billions of years and always had earth in the perfect orbit the entire time for life to form.
Carbon Dating
Earths atmosphere is somewhere between 100-200 miles thick.
That is very thin on the scale of a 8000 mile earth.
Highest point we can breathe is 4-5 miles up.
Mt. Everest is 5 miles high and is extremely difficult to breathe up there.
Solar radiation is striking the atmosphere constantly.
Earths atmosphere is made of
78% Nitrogen (Inert - non combustible)
21% Oxygen
0.06% Carbon Dioxide
0.000765% Radioactive Carbon 14
Radioactive carbon mixes with Carbon Dioxide.
CO2 does not care if the carbon is radioactive or not.

Sunlight hitting the atmosphere changes nitrogen to carbon 14.
Carbon is usually 12.
Insects are found in sap and there is air bubbles trapped with them.
There is 35% oxygen in the air bubbles compared to 21% in air today.
There was more oxygen in the past.
Carbon has atomic weight of 12
Atomic number is 6 - 6 protons and 6 neutrons
Electrons considered weightless.
Sunlight hits nitrogen and knocks off a proton and neutron and forms carbon 14.
C14 has a half life of 5730 years.
As electrons fly off they can be heard by a Geiger counter and in 5730 years 1/2 of the amount of C14 will turn back into nitrogen or to carbon 12.

Plants take in carbon dioxide and break it down into a simple sugar and oxygen.
They use the simple sugar to produce leaves, branches, etc. and the oxygen they release.
The CO2 then becomes part of its tissue.
Table sugar is a complex sugar - it gives you energy but takes more energy from your body to break it down.
Honey is a simple sugar that is easy to break down and is will give you more energy that other sugars because it is a simple sugar.

The odds are you have eaten a plant or eaten an animal that has eaten a plant sometime in your life.
C14 becomes part of the food chain.
Theory is that the ratio of C14 to C12 should be the same in the atmosphere as it is in plants and animals.
Reasonable assumption but has never been proved.
When a plant or animal dies it stops taking in C14.

Willard Libby - 1947 got the idea to use radioactive carbon to date things.
Since amount of C14 in air never changes (Mistake # 1) we should be able to tell how old animals and plants are by the amount of C14 in them still.
Sounds good but doesn't work.
C14 never goes to zero.
The half life will go from 1/2 to 1/4 to 1/8 to 1/16 to 1/32 on and on forever till there is so little left that you can not date it anymore.
30,000 - 50,000 years is the maximum time for carbon dating to work.
Assumptions that mess up everything -
1. Has the amount of C14 in the atmosphere always been the same?
We can measure the amount today real precisely.
How much was in the atmosphere 1000 years ago?
Ron Cooper had an article saying C14 has not yet reached equilibrium.
If you are trying to fill a bucket and the bucket has holes in it the water level will come up and start flowing out of one of the holes then two and eventually there will be the same amount of water flowing out as flowing in.
This is equilibrium.
Same as your check book - same amount goes in as goes out.

Sun shines equally on every part of the earth.
The earth spins and orbits the sun so at some point in the year everything has had an equal amount of time in the sun.

A brand new earth going around the sun starts making C14 and at the same time it starts to decay.
With some complicated math you can calculate how long it will take for the earth to reach equilibrium.
Most people agree it is around 30,000 years.
Willard Libby says -
We know earth is millions of years old (Mistake #1) so we can ignore the equilibrium problem (Mistake #2).
It has been discovered that the earth has not yet reached the equilibrium point.
There is more C14 now than there was 100 years ago.

If we dig up a fossil from 1000 years ago it would read older than it actual was because it has less carbon 14 in it.
This not only disproves evolution but puts a crimp in the Day Age theory and Gap Theory.

C14 gives off about 16 clicks on a Geiger counter per minute per gram.
8 clicks a minute means that it is 5730 years old.
4 clicks per minute means it is 11460 years old.

If you walk into a room and see a candle burning.
How long was it burning?
Do some empirical science - can be tested, measured, weighed, etc.
Measure it - 7" tall
Rate of burn - 1" per hour
Can you tell how long it was burning? - NO
You still need to know how long it was to start with and has it always burned at the same rate.

If you dig up a fossil you can measure how much C14 is in it now and you can measure the current rate of decay but that is it.
A canopy of water would block short wave radiation (UV light) and allow long wave radiation (Visible light) to pass through.
That would also prevent C14 from forming.
Pre-flood animals die and are buried and now dug up and measured and have almost no C14 left.
That is because they had barely any to start with.
We assume that it started at 16 clicks and since it now is at 0 it must be 30,000 years old.
The flood destroyed and changed everything.

1963 Living mollusk shells dated 2,300 years old.
1971 Freshly killed seal dated 1,300 years old.
Evolutionists claim they know this one is wrong because those snails lived in a stream that had lots of lime stone and the stone was rich in carbon and the snails absorbed the carbon by drinking the water and that is why they are off.
If all these ones are wrong how can we know any is right?
1973 One part of Dima (Baby frozen mammoth) was 40,000 years old and another 26,000 years old and the wood surrounding it was 9-10,000 years old
Evolutionists say that the mammoth was contaminated because there was flowing water through it and washed out some of the C14.
How can you say any are true?
1949 Harold Anthony lower leg was 15,000 years old and the skin 21,000 years.
1992 Two Colorado Creek, AK mammoths found next to each other. One dated 22,000 years and the other 16,000 years.
Living penguin 8,000 years old.
Oldest human skeleton remains were dated using a mass spectrometer and were less than 5000 years old.
Dinosaur bones have been carbon dated at 34,000 years old.
If you tell them they are dinosaur bones they will not date them because they are too old.
Hugh Miller took dinosaur bones in and did not tell them what they were and got a date of under 20,000 years old.

Java man - changed to Pithecanthropus erectus - now called homo erectus.
Eugène Dubois went to Trinil in 1891 in Indonesia looking for the missing link.
Hardly a impartial observer.
Found small part of a skull cap from an ape or monkey, found 3 human teeth and 1 year later came back and found a hip bone 50 feet away - put it all together and called it Java man.
Concluded that he had found a half human half ape animal.
He did not tell anyone that he also found 3 perfectly normal human skulls in the same area and he hid them under the floor boards under his bed.
If you are going to spend all your time digging in the dirt you want people to think you are doing something important.

Recently at Berkeley university they used two different dating methods to re-date homo erectus fossils.
He got the results that they were 53,000 years old at the most and 27,000 years old at the least.
Contemporary with modern humans.
Homo erectus was thought to be 250,000 years old.
That is a 96% margin of error.

If you date a sample of known age it doesn't work but if you date a sample of unknown age it is assumed to work.

When something decays it releases alpha or beta particles and produces helium.
Helium gets trapped in caves or underground.
Miners used to take canaries into caves with them to see if air had deadly gas.
Helium will eventually reach the surface then into the atmosphere.
How much helium can escape through the atmosphere?
Including all factors there is less than 2 million years of helium in the atmosphere.
Put water in a pot and it will evaporate because surface molecules are rubbing against each other and will eventually jump out.
When the water is boiling they are rubbing much faster and they jump out much easier.
Earths atmosphere gets struck with sunlight and moves air around and causes molecules to pop off however the nearest object is earth so they tend to fall back to the earth by gravity.

Geologic column is how they date fossils not carbon dating.
When something is completely fossilized it has no carbon left in it because it has all been replaced with minerals from the ground.
They only can date things like wood, charcoal, frozen animals, etc.

In the last two years an absolute date for the Ngandong beds just above the Trinil beds has been obtained. It has the interesting date of 300,000 years - plus or minus 300,000 years.
They hid the nail right on the head. I'll go with 4,400 years.
1969 moon rocks were brought back.
Genesis rock was broken into 6 pieces and dated several times.
They came up with a date of 2.5 billion to 4.6 billion years old.
That is almost 100% error.
James Dawson - www.jpdawson.com
He worked on the Genesis rock and said it dated anywhere between 10,000 years and several billion years.
They settled on the date of 3.5 billion years because that was what they were teaching in the text books as the age of the earth.

Potassium Argon dating
Potassium 40 has a much longer half life - about 1.3 billion years
Who watched it for 1.3 billion years?
They can tell how many molecules are decaying by listening to Geiger clicks or other instruments and count them to determine its half life.
How do we know the decay has always been the same?
How much was in the sample to start with?
There is less than 1% Argon in the atmosphere.
Potassium decays into argon.
Theory is that hot lava drives all argon out and when it cools only the potassium is left.
If we take a lava flow that has no argon in it at time zero (Mistake #1) we then count the K+Ar and determine its age.

Find a layer of ash - animals below the ash are older than the lava flow
Above that layer is a layer of dirt than another layer of ash.
The fossils found between the two layers have to be between the dates of the two lava flows.
Event Horizon - Significant event such as volcanic eruption.
Ash layers dated
Sounds good but dosen't work.

KBS Tuff
Tuff = ash layer
Discovered by Kay Behrensmeyer
Accepted date determined to be 212-230 million years old
Scientists would have arguments in different scientific journals saying they knew the best age for the KBS tuff and their methods were the best but they all fell within the accepted date range.

1972 Richard Leakey discovered a normal human skull under the KBS tuff.
First they try to discredit it.
They tried to say maybe he fell down a crack and wound up buried there.
KNM-ER 1470 - Normal human skull found in rock too old
KNM ER - Scientific way of naming fossils that give where, who, and what was found.
Finally they determine that it was not an accident of fraud but that the person actually lived there.

1. Aliens visited the planet 200 billion years ago
2. Layers of rock not as old as they thought.
They re-dated the KBS tuff
The entire geologic column is a house of cards.
One date is based on another which is based on another which is based on another.
Skull was dated 2.9 million years old.
The KBS tuff re-dated at .5 to 2.64 million years old.
1. That is still way down from 200 million
2. They would never have re-dated it if they did not find the skull. How many other dates are wrong?
They had a 9000% error.
The new dates still leave a 500% error.
They call this science? This is fairytale stuff.
1770 - George Buffon was one person that started teaching the earth was older than 6000 years.
He said Earth was 70,000 years old.
1905 Newsweek July 1998 Earth 2 billion years old
1969 - Minneapolis Tribune said earth is 3.5 billion years old.
Today - earth 4.6 billion years old
One text book said 4.65 billion years old.
Earth is getting older at the rate of 21 million years per year for the last 200 years or 40 years per minute.

Wild dates are often gotten that do not match geologic column and are thrown out.
If they do match the geologic column they get published.
Why do they date them in the first place?
Potassium decays into Argon
Uranium decays into lead.
All these are going down hill.
Why do we never observe anything getting better.
Mt Etna Sicily - basalt from a volcanic flow that occurred in 122BC was K-Ar dated to 250,000 years old.
They check the argon to potassium ratio - what if some of the argon leaked out?
Hawaiian 1801 lava flow K-Ar dated to 1.6 million years old
They admit some dates are wrong.
How can we tell if any dates are right?
Mt Kilauea Ika Hawaii erupted in 1959 gave a date of 8.5 million years old
Same volcano erupted again in 1964 gave date of 700,000 years old
Again in 1972 dated 350,000 years old.
Mt. St Helens in 1980 grew new lava dome and when tested gave date of .35 - 2.8 million years old.

Fresh dinosaur bones.
Do we find "fresh" dinosaur bones?
Book - The Great Alaskan Dinosaur Adventure
They dug down and found bones, some were petrified and some were light weight.
December 24 1993, Journal of science - Amazing preservation of duck billed dinosaur found in Montana.
Bones preserved so finely that the cells could be seen and compared to chicken cells.
Bylot Island - Newfoundland - found lower part of duck bill dinosaur jaw - it too was in fresh condition, not fossilized.
North West Alaska 1961 - bed of dinosaur bones found unpermineralized.

Dinosaur heart found.
Time magazine for kids April 27 2000.
4 chambered heard of dinosaur.
If dinosaurs evolved to birds the heart is one thing that would need to evolve.
Reptiles have a 3 chambered heart.
Birds have a 4 chambered heart.
They work completely different.
Reptile 3 chambered heart has a chamber where the oxygenated blood mixes with the unoxygenated blood.
This is why reptiles can not run long distances because they do not get as much oxygen as mammals with 4 chambered hearts.

CSE-104 Class 6 Notes

CSE 104 - Class 6

Separation of church and state
The Bible and creation can be taught in public schools.
There has never been a law against it.
You can not try to proselytize or convert a student to your faith while being paid by the state.
You can talk about and read the bible.

Government has no jurisdiction over churches so they can not tax them or require them to get building permits.
Pastors were the rabble rousers in the revolutionary war.

How do we see stars billions of miles away.

Nehemiah 9:6
[6] Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.

If stars evolved star births should be greater than star deaths.
If deaths are greater that the births than the population goes extinct.
Novas and Super-Novas
Stars have been seen blowing up every 20-30 years.
No one has ever seen a star form.
ICR September 1998 article
Why do we only see 300 super nova rings?

Bright spot seen getting brighter does not mean a star is forming it just means the dust is clearing.
Brownian motion would prevent gases from getting together and forming a star.
Gases would need energy to press them together.
It would take the energy of 20 stars going nova next to each other to create one new star.
Stars were made on day 4.
Evolution has stars made before the earth while bible has earth before stars.

God knows the number of each star in the sky - not just the number of stars.
Psalms 147:4
[4] He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
He also knows the number of the hairs on your head.
Everyone on earth could own two trillion stars to themselves.
Hubble telescope focused in on a spot close to the North star that they thought was empty the size of a grain of salt at arms length.
After 10 days they found more stars than they could count in that one spot.
Steven Hawking (Evolutionist) said
Stars are so far away that even the closest star through the most powerful telescope just looks like a dot. You can not see the shape or orbit only the color of light it emits.
They say the sun is a medium sized star however they do not know how big other stars are.

Copper burns green.
Different metals burn different colors.
How do you tell distance?
From trigonometry you can determine an unknown distance with two angles and one side of the triangle.
Earth is 8000 miles in diameter - too small to make any measurements.
Take one measurement in January and another in June.
The earth is 1 AU away from the sun.
It takes 8 minutes for sunlight to reach the earth.
The measurement of the earths orbit would be 16 light minutes.
Earths atmosphere bends light so you can see the sun after it is below the horizon and in the morning it is over the horizon before you can actually see it.

Super cold ice may become fiber optic and a photo amplifier - you would be able to see stars more clearly and hear sounds put off by the electromagnetic spectrum.
Not provable but interesting theory.
Canopy would compress air and make less distortion.
Hot air expanding off highways makes ripples in air.
If the canopy limited the 200 mile atmosphere to 20 miles you would have less distortion.

365.2422 days in a year.
Every 4 years you need to add a day except every 100 years where you do not.
Year 2000 should have been a leap year but it was not.
365.2422 x 24 x 60 = 525948.768 minutes in a year
16 light minutes of distance the earth travels in 1/2 million of earth minutes
To measure equivalent of 1 light year you could take two surveyors and put them 16 inches away on a roof and focus on a point 1/2 million inches away (8 1/4 miles).
How accurate could they measure? And that is only 1 light year.
Light year is a time not a distance.
6 trillion miles are in 1 light year.
That measurement would be 0.017 degrees on a protractor.
Try to mark off 0.1 degree on a protractor.
100 light years away would be 0.00017 degrees.
They say they can measure start that are 17 Billion light years away.
That assumes the earth is in the exact same place it was 6 months ago.
Space has no reference points.
Get distance to moon by trigonometry.
Parallax trigonometry.
Close one eye and hold thumb in front of you. Switch eyes and the thumb movement can be calculated by parallax trigonometry.
Distance to sun can be calculated using the known distance to the moon.
Most text books say that we can measure distances up to 100 light years.
It is doubtful that they can measure that far but we will give it to them because they still can not measure billions of light years.

Evolutionists will answer questions like high school students on a test where they do not know the answer.
They will give long answers that never actually answer the question.

No one knows exactly what light is.
Give me a jar of it and paint it red and weigh it.
Light is attracted by gravity that means light is not a constant.

Who measures the star distances and using what?
Is it a Stanley or Craftsman and who held the other end?

Black hole
Light is attracted by gravity.
If light is attracted by gravity than light speed is not a constant.

Escape velocity from the earth is 18-20,000 mph.
Any slower than that and you would fall back.
Moon has less gravity so the escape velocity is much lower.
If it was the same mass as earth than it would require as much fuel to leave the moon as to leave earth.
The problem with colonies on Venus and Mars is that the planets would require so much fuel to get off that it would be impossible to leave.
Black hole has so much mass that the escape velocity is the speed of light.
Earth escape velocity is 7 miles per second.

Problem with black hole is that if you can not see it you can not prove it is there.
They are probably real but not provable.
No one can prove there are planets around another stars because we can not even see the closest star.
They can only see the wobble of a star and guess that it is caused by planets pulling on the star.

In 1999 light was slowed down to 38 mph by cooling it to 50 billionths of a degree above absolute zero.
Absolute zero is 0 deg K, -456 F, or -273 C
Space is -453 F.
February 2000 light was slowed down to 1 mph
January 2001 light was stopped.
Article written saying how speeding up the speed of light could increase the speed of computers that are now limited by how fast electrons can flow.
People say that if they could travel at the speed of light they would visit the stars.
You would be an old man by the time you got to the first one.
What if you could travel at the speed of thought?
You could be there instantly (or may never get there depending on how fast you think).
How long does it take for your prayers to reach heaven?
Angles can go back and forth instantly.
We think in 3 dimensions.
What if heaven is just in a different dimension only 1/2 second in the future?

June 2000 - Scientists have broken the ultimate speed barrier.
They have accelerated light to 300 times faster.

In the last 300 years there have been 164 measurements of the speed of light using 16 different methods.
Time it takes for star light to reach us from moon.
Laser up and down hallway with spinning disco ball.
Speed of light has decreased so rapidly that experimental error can not account for it.
Speed of light decreased until 1960 when it leveled out.
In 1960 they started using the atomic clock as the method of telling time.

There are no physical laws that prevent the speed of light from being changed.

The atomic clock measures time by using the wavelength of a cesium atom.
9192631770 cycles of a cesium atom is equal to one second.
If you are measuring the speed of light with light then you have a rubber ruler.
Atomic clocks are very precise but not accurate.
Speed of light would have to have been 10 billion times faster at time zero according to the big bang theory to make light have reached the earth by now.
Walt Brown's book has chapter on atomic clocks.

Dr. V.S. Troitskii - speed of light was 10,000 times faster

When the creation was finished they could have seen the stars.
How old was Adam in the garden? - 0
How old did Adam look? - 48?
How old were the trees?
How old did they look?
Did they have rings?
Rings give trees strength and flexibility.
That is why we go through hard times and good times and hard times and good times and hard times and good times is because it gives us strength and flexibility.
God did not put two babies in the garden and give them seeds and tell them to get planting something because they are going to want dinner.
Chicken or the egg - what came first? - The chicken
Tree or the seed - what came first? - The tree

Light year is a distance not a time.
Just because stars are 10 billion light years away it does not mean the universe is 10 billion years old.
Star distance can be measured by redshift or Cepheid variables.
Light through prism creates ROYGBIV light spectrum.
Star moving away creates a red shift.

Train going past creates a higher pitch while approaching and lower while going away.
Doppler effect.
Assumption is that the Doppler effect works on light too.
They say that a star is coming closer the light compresses and when a star is moving away the light stretches out causing a redshift.
Sounds good and is possibly true but no one knows for sure.
There is little relation between the brightness of QSO (quasi-stellar object - quasar) and the redshift.
It is possible that the redshift has nothing to do with the movement or distance of stars.
They look at the movement of all stars and say they all appear to be moving away so there must have been together for a big bang.

Science news September 1995 - The universe appears to be 8.4 billion years old.
How do they come up with these numbers?
To calculate the age of the universe one of the multipliers in the equations is the Hubble constant.
Using the Hubble telescope at Cambridge university they developed a two step method to estimate a Hubble constant.
They observed a standard candle known as a Cepheid variables to measure distance to M16 galaxy.
You can come up with huge errors using the Hubble constant.
Even the nearest Cepheid is so remote that it can not be determined the absolute distance.
They use faintness or brightness to estimate how far away a star is.
The logic is flawed because brightness can be dimmed by a cloud or something else blocking its path.

Bible says God stretched out the heavens - that could cause redshift.
Light could be getting tired - everything else does.
Maybe it is the Doppler effect.
It may be caused by gravity - if a black hole is real they may be sling shotting the light around them and distorting it.

Is there the gospel in the stars? May be true may not be.
Dr James Kennedy - The Meaning of the Zodiac.
There are 88 constellations.
Some are mentioned in the bible.
Zodiac could be completely heathen or it could have been that God revealed the gospel in the stars to Adam.
When I look up in the sky I see a bunch of dots not animals.
Virgo the virgin brings forth a son.
Libra going to be the judge.
Today it has been perverted into horoscopes.
There are 12 major constellations and each has a minor constellation.
Some say the Sphinx is a guide to tell us how to read the stars.
