120 STARLIGHT, STAR BRIGHT, AND THE SEVEN SISTERS

 

STARLIGHT, STAR BRIGHT AND SEVEN SISTERS

Here’s an interesting puzzle for you.  Australia was first discovered by the Dutch in 1606 and Europeans in 1770 and found what they thought were a ‘prehistoric people group they believed were not too far removed from ignorant cavemen.  Darwin felt these natives were lesser “evolved” and proof for his ‘Theory of Evolution’, believing they evolved later than others.  However, European astronomers soon learned that these people had a story about the heavens that matched one of their own stories.  They were totally baffled.  It concerned the constellation Orion and a cluster of stars called the Pleiades (also called the Seven Sisters).  Now, Orion and the Seven Sisters are nothing but stars and don’t resemble humans in any way; they simply look like stars.  The Greeks believed Orion was a group of hunters chasing after Pleiades (the Seven Sisters).  The ancient Greeks were considered to be a highly advanced civilization. A great contrast to aborigines supposedly recently evolving from monkeys. The Aborigines had the exact same story; a group of hunters chasing seven sisters.  How could this be the astronomers wondered?  This story had been around for as long as the Europeans had kept records.  Since Australia had not been discovered by Europeans until 1770, and the aboriginals had the same story for as long as they could remember, how could it be possible for both to have the same story?  The story became even more compounded when Europeans discovered that Ukrainian folklore also had the story of Orion hunters chasing Seven Sisters!  Once again, when South America was discovered in 1492, and Guatemala was finally reached, Mayan writings told the story of Orion (hunters) chasing Pleiades (Seven Sisters).  When North America was finally explored to the west, they reached what is called ‘Devil’s Tower’ in 1875.  It’s 900 feet tall.  Others later found that American Indians from Texas to Canada came to this place to worship.  Twenty-four Indian tribes were eventually found with the same story concerning ‘Devil’s Tower…and the Seven Sisters.  The story says that seven sisters were out picking berries when they were chased by a bear.  They ran to a small outcropping and prayed for God to help them not be eaten.  As they prayed, the ground began rising until the tower was 900 feet from the ground.  Realizing they were trapped on top of the tower, the girls asked for God’s help.  He took pity on them and lifted them to the stars, where they eventually became Pleiades, the Seven Sisters (eventually chased by the hunters of Orion).  It appears many continents had a ‘Seven Sisters’ story.  How’s that possible, evolutionists wondered, if man never had a time when everyone spoke the same language and were capable of sharing the story?  Also, man supposedly evolved about a million years ago, and the continents (supposedly) separated before monkeys became man.  Monkeys couldn’t have shared the story of Orion and the Seven Sisters.  There’s one more problem; only six of the seven stars in the Seven Sisters are visible to the naked eye.  How did ancients know there was a seventh star!?  One needs a telescope to see the seventh star!  The answer comes from the Bible in chapter eleven of Genesis.  As one reads, they’ll see that there WAS once a time when all men spoke the same language and could have passed down the tradition of Orion and the Seven Sisters before we dispersed at the Tower of Babel.  God had ordered man to disperse into all the world.  They refused and built the tower of Babel.  Remember, the people at the Tower of Babel were said to be astrologers and star gazers.  God then came down and confused their languages. They couldn’t understand each other, but would have remembered stories like Orion and the Seven Sisters.  Also, God is said to have named every star and, it’s thought, to have shared that information with Adam and Eve.  They would have known there were hunters and seven stars and passed that knowledge along.  It all begins to make sense, reading the story in the Bible.  Notice that dispersion happened thousands, not millions of years ago (as suggested by evolutionists).  Don’t dismiss Bible stories.  If you’d like to hear some of my sermons, go to YouTube at “Biblical Archaeology/Creation Science, David Brown.  Have a good day.

118 GOD’S MAGNETIC SHIELD

 

118 GOD AND EARTH’S MAGNETIC FIELD

Isaiah 45:18 says “For thus says the Lord, who created the heavens, who is God, who formed the earth and made it, who has established it, who did not create it in vain, who formed it to be inhabited: “I am the Lord, and there is no other.”  When God created the heavens and the earth, He created our magnetic field around the earth.  This magnetic field shelters us from cosmic rays, solar winds, and the ejections of gases and magnetic impulses from our Sun.  Without our magnetic shield around us, life could not exist on earth.  There are those that propose that all things came about by pure luck; the heavens and the earth.  Really?  This would mean that billions of lucky accidents, all supporting one another, created the heavens and earth as we know them.  I don’t have enough faith to believe that.  Those of you who are regular readers know that I’ve written about hundreds of things, from science, showing these accidents to be impossible.  It is far-fetched to believe that all things came about from luck.  Where did the materials come from for all things in the beginning itself, for example?  It had to have come from somewhere, didn’t it?  Let’s look at evidence for God creating all things by seeing what science has discovered about our magnetic field; just one thing out of billions needed to support life here.  Harmful ejections from our sun and other sources are directed away from the earth when they enter our magnetic field.  Our magnetic field redirects them to collide with gaseous molecules high up in our atmosphere.  Thank God for the gases being there, right?  When these collisions occur, they cause a beautiful light display called the aurora borealis (commonly referred to as the ‘northern lights’).  These are seen most often in Alaska.  It is believed that this magnetic field is generated from deep within the earth as electrical currents.  There is a tremendous debate going on in scientific circles as to just how this current is generated.  It was once believed that molten lava and the spinning of the earth created energy forces/current.  This is now being hotly contested.  It appears that science has gone back to square one.  For our purposes, we won’t enter the debate. It is now known that these energy forces (electrical currents creating our magnetic shield) are diminishing quickly.  Without the shield we all die.  Don’t worry.  We still have plenty of time.  However, the fact that the magnetic shield is dying creates quite a problem for those who believe the earth to be billions of years old.  Why?  Because this energy force is like a battery.  Electrical currents wear down over time.  If the energy field has been diminishing for billions of years, why is it still here at all?  By using the mathematic principles involved in determining just how quickly our magnetic shield is diminishing, we find that the earth cannot be more than thousands of years old.  Believing it to be billions of years old means that our magnetic shield would have been tremendously huge in the beginning, causing the earth to be uninhabitable for life.  The problem with saying it is billions of years old is quickly disproven by the fact that we are all still here and alive.  Earth’s magnetic field has been measured since 1829.  That’s a long time.  We know that we are gradually losing this field.  There have been research projects that dispute the idea that the lava core of the earth created our magnetic shield.  Understand that, in order for our shield to work, we need special gases already present in the outer stratosphere, gases made up of specific chemicals. How lucky are we, according to those who do not believe in a Creator. Amazingly, the best evidence that all planetary magnetic fields (all other celestial bodies such as stars, moons, planets, etc.) seem to have all been created at the same time comes from our Mariner 10’s space probe of planet Mercury.  Dr. Russel Humphreys predicted, that if the heavens and earth are thousands of years old, that Mercury would be found to have lost about 4% of its magnetic field.  Mercury was studied from 1974 to today, and has lost just about 4% of its magnetic field, just as Dr. Humphreys predicted.  He based this all on the theory that the heavens and earth could be found to be thousands, not billions, of years old.  Look for us at evidenceforthehope.org or Evidence for the Hope Ministries.  Have a nice day.

303 OUR YOUNG UNIVERSE

 

303 OUR YOUNG UNIVERSE

This radio spot is entitled Our Young Universe. About 75 years ago, scientists began believing all celestial bodies in the universe were created around 3-5 billion years ago, including Earth. This belief was based on evolutionary theories of old ages for everything. However, when those who believe this set about proving how old the universe was, they ran into trouble. Let’s examine a few problems that have arisen from secular research. 1) The Earth’s gravity is diminishing at a measurable rate. Gravity is controlled by powerful electrical charges that create currents, much like electrical currents, that drive our magnetic field, which is the source of our gravity. Like a car battery, these electrical currents diminish over time. Our gravity is dying and will eventually disappear. However, to say the Earth is billions years old cannot be possible. At the known rate of loss, Earth’s magnetic shield should have died out long, long ago. This puzzles many evolutionists as to why we still have a magnetic field. We shouldn’t if billions of years old. They are confused because the earth appears  to be just thousands of years old. 2) the rate of decay of our Sun is measurable. At the known rate of reduction of the sun, it shouldn’t still be burning even if just a million years old. 3) The Moon is moving away from earth at a measurable rate, and the moon controls our tides. Once the moon is far enough away, the oceans will stagnate due to no oceanic movement due to loss of the gravitational pull of the moon; all marine life will die. Estimates are that the moon would have been so close to earth less than 100,000 years ago that all land should have been wiped away by the enormous tides that would have taken place. 4) Every planet is showing signs of losing gravitational pull. It is measurable and shows that all gravity would have dissipated by now if they were as old as just one million years. The better estimates are that they are only about 6-8000 years old. Four planets expend more energy than they receive from the Sun. They should already be cold, dead planets. The fact they’re still expelling energy dates them as being thousands of years old. 5) Comets were believed to be leftovers from the explosion of the Big Bang roughly 5 billion years ago. However, scientists have discovered that each time a comet passes by the Sun, a percentage of its icy tail vaporizes. This can only mean that comets have to be relatively young, not billions of years old; otherwise they would no longer exist. 6) The beautiful rings around Saturn are being bombarded by space particles, which will eventually turn them black. The fact they are still very clean and colorful can only be because they are relatively young; many now believe this can only mean Saturn is also just thousands of years old. These are just a few of the things secular researchers are discovering about space and our celestial bodies. This information comes from NASA, the European Space Agency, and laboratories around the world. There are far too many unexplainable things pointing to our Universe being very young. Yet, this information remains a mystery to some because these same scientists have been raised on evolutionary concepts of really old ages to the universe, earth, life and more. It’s been ingrained in them to a point they can only confess confusion over the information their own labs are discovering. The problem is do they retain belief in their faith based Evolution or accept that God as the Creator; something abhorrent to many. This is why some believe aliens brought life to earth. This still doesn’t deal with the fact that celestial bodies are sending back information proving they are relatively young. Religions are based on faith. So is Evolution. It cannot be proven; thus one needs to accept it solely on faith, while ignoring evidence to the contrary. Since our government has passed separation of church and state laws, shouldn’t Evolution, as a faith based religious church be banned in schools? This is an interesting legal concept that we should examine. After all, Evolution is only a theorized historical proposition for how old things are. It adds nothing to any real science field other than tacking on ages to rocks, dinosaurs, and the like. It only deals with age.

302 HOW DID ALIENS SEED LIFE ON EARTH

 

302 HOW DID ALIENS SEED LIFE ON EARTH

This article is entitled “How did aliens seed life on Earth”? I don’t believe in aliens, if you’re wondering. I was at the veteran’s hospital in Martinsburg having my eyes checked. There was a long wait due to several employees being out sick. The waiting room was nearly full, and I engaged in conversation as I normally do. This is a chance to share my faith with fellow veterans. When the man sitting across from me found out I was a minister, he loudly proclaimed he was an atheist. I told him that I also had once been an atheist but found a cure for that. He quickly strong-armed my testimony and hurriedly started giving his opinions. Eyes around the room turned our way when he boasted, “I don’t believe God created the universe and life”. “So, you believe the Big Bang created the universe and that Evolution is the source of life”, I asked. “I believe in the Big Bang, but I also believe aliens seeded life on Earth, not evolution. This is not an uncommon belief thanks to the alien shows on T.V.  The Big Bang theory states that earth was hurled across space from the initial blast of that monstrous explosion which theorists say created all heavenly bodies.  When earth supposedly arrived here it had no life, being nothing more than a huge mass of molten lava with no water.  The earth then cooled for  four or five billions of years, leaving only a rocky surface. “So, aliens seeded all living things”, I asked. “Tell me how they did it”. He knew people were watching and he was thrilled to have an audience. “They planted seeds for everything”, he answered. Unfortunately, at that moment, my name was called to see the doctor.  I’m sure he gave the other patients an earful. “Planted it in what” should have been my next question. I know he’d have said soil. However, soil is derived from dying plants, vegetation, animals, humans, and trees decomposing over millennia. Aliens couldn’t have seeded the plants, vegetation, and trees because there’d have been no soil for them to plant seeds in, according to the Big Bang model.  Soil would have taken millions of years of decomposition of vegetation to create the very soil needed to plant seeds. The Big Bang model of Earth states there’d have been no soil nor water. How could their seeds have lived without either soil or water? This is also a problem for evolutionists; if the first living cell came from a non-living chemical blob, how did that cell get food if all vegetation and trees evolved slowly, over millions of years, from that first cell? There would have been no source of nutrients for it. Unfortunately, many folks don’t think the way I do. He also believed these aliens created all creatures, including the monkeys which evolved into humans. How did these creatures survive until those hypothetical seeds created the vegetation needed to feed them? What did the animals drink if there was no water? See any problems for the alien seeding theory? Many of the people who heard us speak were still in the waiting room when I reappeared. My atheist counterpart was gone. I mentioned the problems with his theory to an interested gentleman who approached me before leaving. I spoke loudly enough to be heard by others. God provided a way for me to re-approach this subject to that audience. There are many today, who believe God was not the creator of either the universe or life. This idea of aliens bringing life to earth takes the place of a Creator God for those who do not believe in God. NASA has done multiple studies about what it would take for an alien to travel to earth. There are no signs of alien activity in our Galaxy, so aliens would have to come from the next galaxy which is 2,300,000 light years away. They’d have to travel thousands of times the speed of light to get here. The speed of light is 160,000 miles per second. There are 31,536,000 seconds in a year. To travel one year at the speed of light would mean we would have to multiply 31,536,000 seconds by 160,000 miles. A monstrous number miles for just for one year. We then need to multiply that vast number of miles by 2,300,000 light years to the next galaxy, saying the aliens didn’t come further. NASA has determined that it would take the power of 146 million atomic bombs to get a spacecraft up to the speed of light. See any problems?
