BIBLE CODES SHOW DARWINISM, EVOLUTIONISM, AND ATHEISM CONNECTION

Jun

Bible code findings reveal the evolution theory and atheism. These Bible Codes were discovered by Torah Code expert, Rabbi Glazerson. Darwinism and Atheism are belief systems that have negatively impacted the Western world because it has contributed to racism, ethnocentrism, and other dogmas that divided humankind. Evolution is a religious belief system that originated in ancient Babylon proliferated to the first Egyptians before influencing the early Greek philosophers. Today evolution has been repackaged as a purely materialistic dogma for describing origins.

Darwinism describes the evolutionary mechanism proposed by Charles Darwin as an explanation for organic changes. It denotes Darwin’s specific view about how evolution works. Darwin believed that evolution is based upon three principles: variation, heredity, and the struggle for existence. Evolution says animals and plants have their origin in other preexisting types and that the distinguishable differences are due to modifications in successive generations. It is one of the keystones of modern biological theory. In 1858 Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace jointly published a paper on evolution. The next year Darwin presented his major treatise On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, which revolutionized all later biological study.

The heart of Darwinian evolution is the mechanism of natural selection. Surviving individuals, which vary in some way that enables them to

live longer and reproduce, pass on their advantage to succeeding generations. Though the theory of evolution is accepted by many within the scientific community, it has sparked much controversy from Darwin’s time to the present; recent objections have come from elements within the scientific community who believe in the intelligent design theory.  Also, some religious leaders and thinkers reject the theory because it conflicts with the literal interpretations of the Genesis creation history.

MODERN SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE FOR A YOUNG UNIVERSE AND EARTH

Jun
05

There are many scientific measurements demonstrating that the universe, planet Earth, and living systems are relatively young. According to Dr. Russell Humphreys and many other creation science researchers, galaxies wind themselves up too quickly. The comets disintegrate too quickly.  There is not enough mud on the ocean floor. There is not enough sodium in the ocean. The planet Earth’s magnetic field is decaying too quickly. Many strata are too tightly bent. Injected sandstone shortens geologic ages. Fossil radioactivity shortens geologic ‘ages’ to a few years.  Helium is located in the wrong places. There is not enough Stone Age skeletons found in the Earth. Agriculture is too recent. And human history is too short.

GALAXIES

The Milky Way galaxy stars rotate around the galactic center with different speeds, the inner ones rotating faster than the outer ones. The observed rotation speeds are so fast that if the Milky Way galaxy stars were older than a few hundred million years old, it would be a featureless star disc rather than its present spiral shape. However, the Milky Way galaxy is supposed to be at least 10 billion years old. Evolutionists call this ‘the winding-up dilemma,’ which they have known about for 50 years. They have devised many theories to try to explain it, each one failing after a brief popularity period. The same ‘winding-up’ dilemma also applies to other galaxies.  For the last few decades the favored attempt to resolve the dilemma has been a complex theory called ‘density waves.’   The theory has conceptual problems, has to be arbitrarily and very finely tuned, and lately has been called into serious question by the Hubble Space Telescope’s discovery of very detailed spiral structure in the central hub of the ‘Whirlpool’ galaxy, M51.

COMETS

According to the evolutionary theory, comets are supposed to be the same age as the solar system, about 5 billion years. Yet each time a comet orbits close to the sun, it loses so much of its material that it could not survive much longer than about 100,000 years. Many comets have typical ages of 10,000 years, according to astronomer P.F. Steidl. Evolutionists explain this discrepancy by assuming that (a) comets come from an unobserved spherical ‘Oort cloud’ well beyond the orbit of Pluto, (b) improbable gravitational interactions with infrequently passing stars often knock comets into the solar system, and (c) other improbable interactions with planets slow down the incoming comets often enough to account for the hundreds of comets observed, according to astronomer F.L. Whipple. Thus far, none of these assumptions has been substantiated, either by observations or realistic calculations. Lately, there has been much talk of the ‘Kuiper Belt,’ a disc of supposed comet sources lying in the plane of the solar system just outside the orbit of Pluto. Even if some bodies of ice exist in that location, they would not really solve the evolutionists’ problem, since according to evolutionary theory the Kuiper Belt would quickly become exhausted if there were no Oort cloud to supply it.

OCEAN FLOOR

Each year, water and winds erode about 25 billion tons of dirt and rock from the continents and deposit it in the ocean. This material accumulates as loose sediment on the hard basaltic rock of the ocean floor. The average depth of all the mud in the whole ocean, including the continental shelves, is less than 400 meters. The main way known to remove the mud from the ocean floor is by plate tectonic subduction. That is, sea floor slides slowly beneath the continents, taking some sediment with it. According to secular scientific literature, that process presently removes only 1 billion tons per year. As far as anyone knows, the other 24 billion tons per year simply accumulate. At that rate, erosion would deposit the present amount of sediment in less than 12 million years. Yet according to evolutionary theory, erosion and plate subduction have been going on as long as the oceans have existed, an alleged 3 billion years. If that were so, the rates above imply that the oceans would be massively choked with mud dozens of kilometers deep. An alternative  explanation is that erosion from the waters of the Genesis flood running off the continents deposited the present amount of mud within a short time about 5000 years ago.

OCEAN SODIUM

Every year, rivers and other sources dump over 450 million tons of sodium into the ocean. Only 27% of this sodium manages to get back out of the sea each year. As far as anyone knows, the remainder simply accumulates in the ocean. If the sea had no sodium to start with, it would have accumulated its present amount in less than 42 million years at today’s input and output rates. This time is much less than the evolutionary age of the ocean, 3 billion years. The usual reply to this discrepancy is that past sodium inputs must have been less and outputs greater. However, calculations which are as generous as possible to evolutionary scenarios still give a maximum age of only 62 million years. Calculations for many other sea water elements give much younger ages for the ocean.

EARTH’S MAGNETIC FIELD

The total energy stored in the earth’s magnetic field has steadily decreased by a factor of 2.7 over the past 1000 years. Evolutionary theories explaining this rapid decrease, as well as how the earth could have maintained its magnetic field for billions of years, are very complex and inadequate. A much better creationist theory exists. It is straightforward, based on sound physics, and explains many features of the field: its creation, rapid reversals during the Genesis flood, surface intensity decreases and increases until the time of Christ, and a steady decay since then. This theory matches paleo-magnetic, historic, and present data. The main result is that the field’s total energy (not surface intensity) has always decayed at least as fast as now. At that rate the field could not be more than 10,000 years old.

EARTH’S STRATA

In many mountainous areas, strata thousands of feet thick are bent and folded into hairpin shapes. The conventional geologic time scale says these formations were deeply buried and solidified for hundreds of millions of years before they were bent. Yet the folding occurred without cracking, with radii so small that the entire formation had to be still wet and unsolidified when the bending occurred. This implies that the folding occurred less than thousands of years after deposition.

INJECTED SANDSTONE

Strong geologic evidence16 exists that the Cambrian Sawatch sandstone—formed an alleged 500 million years ago—of the Ute Pass fault, west of Colorado Springs, was still unsolidifi ed when it was extruded up to the surface during the uplift of the Rocky Mountains, allegedly 70 million years ago. It is very unlikely that the sandstone would not solidify during the supposed 430 million years it was underground. Instead, it is likely that the two geologic events were less than hundreds of years apart, thus greatly shortening the geologic time scale.

FOSSIL RADIOACTIVITY

Radiohalos are rings of color formed around microscopic bits of radioactive minerals in rock crystals. They are fossil evidence of radioactive decay.17 ‘Squashed’ Polonium-210 radiohalos indicate that Jurassic, Triassic, and Eocene formations in the Colorado plateau were deposited within months of one another, not hundreds of millions of years apart as required by the conventional time scale. ‘Orphan’ Polonium-218 radiohalos, having no evidence of their mother elements, imply either instant creation or drastic changes in radioactivity decay rates.

HELIUM

All naturally occurring families of radioactive elements generate helium as they decay. If such decay took place for billions of years, as alleged by evolutionists, much helium should have found its way into the earth’s atmosphere. The rate of loss of helium from the atmosphere into space is calculable and small. Taking that loss into account, the atmosphere today has only 0.05% of the amount of helium it would have accumulated in 5 billion years. This means the atmosphere is much younger than the alleged evolutionary age. A study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research shows that helium produced by radioactive decay in deep, hot rocks has not had time to escape. Though the rocks are supposed to be over one billion years old, their large helium retention suggests an age of only thousands of years.

STONE AGE SKELETONS

Evolutionary anthropologists say that the Stone Age lasted for at least 100,000 years, during which time the world population of Neanderthal and Cro-magnon men was roughly constant, between 1 and 10 million. All that time they were burying their dead with artifacts. By this scenario, they would have buried at least 4 billion bodies. If the evolutionary time scale is correct, buried bones should be able to last for much longer than 100,000 years, so many of the supposed 4 billion Stone Age skeletons should still be around (and certainly the buried artifacts). Yet only a few thousand have been found. This implies that the Stone Age was much shorter than evolutionists think, a few hundred years in many areas.

HUMAN AGRICULTURE

The usual evolutionary picture has men existing as hunters and gatherers for 100,000 years during the Stone Age before discovering agriculture less than 10,000 years ago. Yet the archaeological evidence shows that Stone Age men were as intelligent as we are. It is more likely that men were without agriculture less than a few hundred years after the global flood. After the great flood, agriculture was independently developed in many places, including the Middle East, East Asia, South Asia, and the Americas. The earliest evidence for agriculture has been found in the Middle East. Early cultivars include wild barley (Middle East), millet (China), and squash (the Americas). The domestication of many animals now considered to be livestock occurred during roughly the same period, although dogs were domesticated considerably earlier. Slash-and-burn land-clearing methods and crop rotation were early agricultural techniques.

HUMAN HISTORY

According to evolutionists, Stone Age man existed for 100,000 years before beginning to make written records about 4000 to 5000 years ago. Prehistoric man built megalithic monuments, made beautiful cave paintings, and kept records of lunar phases. Why would humankind wait 1,000 centuries before using the same skills to record history? The biblical time scale is much more likely. The biblical record teaches that history begins when God made the first human beings about 6,000 or 7000 years ago.

GENESIS YOUNG EARTH CREATION SCIENCE THEORY

Jun
05

The Young Earth Creation Science Theory teaches that God created the entire universe around 6,000 or 7,000 years ago during six consecutive, literal days (24 hours) , as we count time today on planet Earth, according to Exodus 20:11, Exodus 31:17, and Genesis 1:1-31. Young-Earth creationists disagree with atheistic evolution, theistic evolution, old Earth progressive creationism, and gap theory creationism. They embrace micro-evolution, which describes biological variation of all plant and animal kinds following an original perfect creation. They completely reject Darwinian macro-evolution (biological evolution of primeval species into new species).

The Young Earth Creation Science Theory argues that natural selection and genetic mutations cannot create new genetic information under natural conditions; therefore, macro-evolution is simply impossible. This theory teaches that evolution is not based on the scientific method, which requires observation, hypothesis, experimentation, and theory. Because scientists cannot observe evolution or conduct experiments on evolution, Darwinism is based only on hypothesis and theory, which is speculation and conjecture, but not real science.

This creation theory is primarily derived from Genesis chapters one and two. The language in the Genesis creation account demonstrates that all of creation was formed into existence during six literal 24-hour periods with no time periods occurring between the days. This theory is supported by the fact that the biblical context requires a literal 24-hour period. The author’s description specifically describes the event in a manner where a normal, common-sense reading comprehends as a literal day: “And there was evening, and there was morning, the first day” (Genesis 1:5). Additionally, every sentence in the original paleo-Hebrew language begins with the word “and.” This is good Hebrew grammar because it indicates each sentence is built upon the preceding statement, clearly demonstrating that the days were consecutive and not separated by long periods or epochs. The Genesis creation history reveals that God’s Words are creative, authoritative, and omnipotent. God’s creative work is primarily accomplished by speaking things into existence, which is another indication of the power and authority of His Word.

GOD’S CREATION METHOD

God creates by the power of His words. This means that God spoke the universe into existence from invisible energy, according to Psalm 33:9, Isaiah 45:11-12, John 1:1-5, and Hebrew 11:3.  This explanation makes no sense until we study quantum physics and string theory where we learn the relationship between invisible energy and visible matter. All matter is made up of atoms, which are made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Within these subatomic particles are quarks. Beyond the quarks are smaller energy particles which behave like vibrating strings generating waves of energy.  This means that the correct quantum vibration of energy can generate and shape matter. String theory demonstrates that Genesis is supported by quantum physics. Today, the most self-consistent string theories propose 11 dimensions; four correspond to the three ordinary spatial dimensions and time, while the rest are believed to be curled up and not perceptible to humanity, according to some creation researchers.

God also creates through a process of first forming and later filling. The first three days describe God forming the universe while the last three days records God filling the universe, according to Dr. Weston Fields.  In other words, God form the light on the First Day before filling the universe with stars, galaxies, planets, and moons on the Fourth Day. God formed the Earth’s atmosphere and ocean on the Second Day before filling the sky and sea with flying creatures and marine life forms on the Fifth Day.  God formed a single landmass on the Third Day before filling the supercontinent with land animals and humankind on the Sixth Day (Genesis 1:1-31 NKJV). From Genesis to Revelation, God is always forming order out of chaos, light out of darkness, life out of death, and success out of failure. Today, God is continually forming and filling the lives of believers daily.

THE FIRST CREATION DAY – UNIVERSE

On the first day, God creates the entire universe with the formation of time, space, and matter. The Holy Scriptures begins with the universe’s creation when Moses wrote the words “In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth” (Genesis 1:1 NKJV). The word for beginning sketches the creation of time. The word for heaven describes the creation of space. And the word for Earth describes the creation of matter. In other words, this first verse describes formation of the space-time dimension along with invisible energy transformation into all matter, which is explained in Albert Einstein’s famous E=MC2 equation. This equation sketches the energy conversion into matter. The second verse describes the Earth after its original formation and after the universe’s creation: “Now the Earth was formless and empty, darkness covered the Earth’s watery surface and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters” (Genesis 1:2 NKJV).

The original universe was unformed and unfilled because it had no galaxies, no stars, no planets (except Earth), and no moons. The cosmos was decorated with the darkness of outer-space and only the planet Earth existed. The original planet Earth was unformed and unfilled because it existed as a gigantic mass of empty water (Genesis 1:2 NKJV). God’s Spirit moved on the watery mass and generated a spherical shape. All life on Earth depends on water to survive and function properly. Plants need water to properly perform photosynthesis. Humans and animals need water to stay hydrated and for cellular respiration to work. Water contains the integration of hydrogen and oxygen (H2O).  The Earth’s surface is the perspective of the entire creation history. This means that after Genesis 1:1, the whole creation account is described from the perspective of a geocentric orientation or from the view of the planet Earth’s surface.

The first day nears its end when God said “let there be light” (Genesis 1:3-5 NKJV), the light that reached the Earth was not natural sunlight. This form of light was supernatural light originating from the Creator Himself because the galaxies, stars, planets, and moons were not created until creation day four. God’s light is much brighter than the noonday sun because Paul said Messiah Yeshua appeared to him as light brighter than the noonday sun (Acts 9:15 NKJV). The Earth’s primeval atmosphere was so heavily overcast with thick darkness that only God’s light could remove the darkness. We read elsewhere in Scripture that God is light (1 John 1:5 NKJV). Messiah Yeshua said “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12 NKJV). We read in Revelation 21:22-24 that the Earth’s inhabitants have no need of the sun because God’s light illuminates the Earth’s atmosphere. God’s light flooded the universe and it generated additional matter and energy required for the formation of galaxies, stars, planets, and moons on the fourth creation day (Genesis 1:14-19 NKJV).

The creation of the heavens and the Earth formed the raw materials required for the following days. The word for heavens” refers to everything beyond the Earth, outer space. In other words, the words for HEAVENS and EARTH describe the entire universe made up of space, time, and matter. The planet Earth is made as mass of water before God’s Spirit give the Earth a spherical shape. God then speaks visible light into existence. The Light of this period was supernatural and it flooded the universe in a flash. This light shined on the Earth before the creation of the sun, moon, and stars. God then separates the light from the darkness and names the light “DAY” and the darkness “NIGHT.” All of this creative work occurs during one day.

THE SECOND CREATION DAY – THE FIRMAMENT

On the second day, God made the Earth’s atmosphere when He divided the waters by forming the firmament. The pre-flood atmosphere was superior to the post flood atmosphere. This primeval atmosphere facilitated optimum genetic expression in all living systems, which contributed to the worldwide gigantism and longevity in all life forms discovered in the fossil record.   The Holy Scriptures describes this atmosphere as the firmament.

The word firmament originates from the Vulgate firmamentum, which is used as the translation of the Hebrew raki’a. This word means simply “expansion.” It denotes the space or expanse like an arch appearing immediately above Earth bound observers. They who rendered raki’a by firmamentum regarded it as a solid body. The language of Scripture is not scientific but popular and visual, and hence we read either of the sun rising and setting or of the stars falling from heaven, which is also used here in Genesis with the word firmament.  It appears the word for firmament was used to describe solidity and expansion. It formed a division between the waters above and the waters below (Genesis 1:7). The raki’a supported the upper reservoir (Psalm 148:4). It was the support also of the heavenly bodies (Genesis 1:14), and is spoken of as having “windows” and “doors” (Genesis 7:11; Isaiah 24:18; Malachi 3:10) through which the rain and snow might descend. The word “firmament” is mentioned twice in the Psalms as the place of God’s handiwork (Psalms 19:1; 150:1). This term is mentioned again in the books of Ezekiel (Ezekiel 1:22-26; 10:1) and Daniel (Daniel 12:3), the firmament is always related to Creation. Therefore, the word firmament demonstrates that the Holy Scriptures employ the language of visual appearance and not the language of precise scientific description.

The “waters above the firmament” describe a frozen water canopy surrounding the pre-flood Earth. In other words, when God spoke, the concentrated hydrogen in the magnetic canopy bonded into crystalline lattice among the water molecules. A thin, solid transparent water canopy was thus created, suspended by its own superconductivity as a crystalline water canopy over the watery Earth, according to Dr. Carl Baugh. This frozen crystalline water canopy existed in the pre-flood atmosphere for 10 generations because there was no outer-space bombardment of Earth before the global flood. When it collapsed into liquid rain, the extreme cooling effect began the post-flood Ice Age. Some creation science researchers believe the existence of a canopy as a possible cause for a variety of pre-flood anomalies, including human longevity and the apparent lack of rain or rainbows. They argue that such a canopy would filter out much of the short wave cosmic radiation that is harmful to plants, animals, and humans. The Earth’s pre-flood ozone layer and frozen water canopy contributed to the primeval longevity and gigantism observed in all living system found throughout the fossil record.

The formation of Earth’s atmosphere formed a barrier between waters above and the waters below. The atmosphere is the Gaseous envelope that surrounds the planet Earth. Near the surface it has a well-defined chemical composition. In addition to gases, the atmosphere contains solid and liquid particles in suspension. Today the scientific community has divided the atmosphere into five main layers: in ascending order, the troposphere (surface 10–13 kilometers); the stratosphere (50 kilometers); the mesosphere (50 to 80 kilometers); the thermosphere (80 to 480 kilometers); and the exosphere (from 480 kilometers and gradually dissipating). Most of the atmosphere consists of neutral atoms and molecules, but in the ionosphere a significant fraction is electrically charged. The ionosphere begins near the top of the stratosphere but is most distinct in the thermosphere.

THE THIRD CREATION DAY – THE SUPERCONTINENT

On the third day, God formed a gigantic landmass, a vast ocean, and plant life. The formation of the Earth’s super-continent included three main layers: the crust (on the outside), the mantle (underneath the crust), and the core (the Earth’s center). The core is made up of an inner core and an outer core. The supercontinent that God made is sometime referred to as Pangea by creation scientists. Before the global flood, Pangea covered about half the Earth and was completely surrounded by a world ocean called Panthalassa. Early during the global flood, Pangea began to break apart. Its segments, Laurasia (composed of all the present-day northern continents) and Gondwana (the present-day southern continents) gradually receded during the early post-flood days of Peleg (Genesis 10:25 NKJV), resulting in the formation of the Atlantic and Indian oceans. This means the pre-flood Earth’s surface was probably covered by 50 percent landmass and 50 percent water, according to many creation science researchers. Most of the Earth’s water was located in deep chambers beneath the solid ground.  This means that during the third creation day the Earth changed from a watery sphere into a planet with an irregular surface with ocean basins and a single continental landmass covered with plant life. The plant life existed in the super-ocean and on the landmass in great diversity (Genesis 1:9-13 NKJV).

The super-ocean Panthalassa surrounded the supercontinent Pangaea during the pre-flood generations. This ocean included the Pacific Ocean to the west and north and the Tethys Ocean to the southeast. This ocean became the Pacific Ocean, following the closing of the Tethys basin and the breakup of Pangaea, which created the Atlantic, Arctic, and Indian Ocean basins following the great flood. The Panthalassic is often called the Paleo-Pacific (“old Pacific”) because the Pacific Ocean developed from the great flood to the Present. Today the ocean covers nearly 75 percent of the Earth’s surface and is divided into major oceans and smaller seas. The three principal oceans, the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian, are largely delimited by land and submarine topographic boundaries. All are connected to what is sometimes called the Southern Ocean, the waters encircling Antarctica. Important marginal seas, primarily in the Northern Hemisphere, are partially enclosed by landmasses or island arcs. The largest are the Arctic Ocean and adjacent seas, Caribbean and adjacent waters, Mediterranean, Bering Sea, Sea of Okhotsk, Yellow and China Seas, and Sea of Japan.

The formation of plant life with self-sustaining reproductive capability was among the first life forms made on planet Earth. All known life-forms possess either DNA or RNA. DNA means deoxyribonucleic Acid. DNA is the chemical substance of genes. The DNA structure includes two strands wound around each other in a double helix to resemble a twisted ladder and this structure was first described by Francis Crick and James D. Watson. Each strand is a long chain of repeating nucleotides: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T).  Likewise, RNA stands for ribonucleic acid and it consists of strands of repeating nucleotides joined in chainlike fashion, but the strands are single (except in certain viruses), and it has the nucleotide uracil (U) where DNA has thymine (T).

The DNA and RNA molecules actually carry the instructions for creating the biochemical information system we call life. DNA contains the actual blueprint for building life molecules, and RNA carries that information to other parts of the cell. We should think of DNA as being like a compact disk complete with complex information, and the RNA as the CD player. Without the RNA, the cells would have no way of understanding the information contained in the DNA, which is the information that will direct the protein molecules to form or repair living cells. The instructions for building RNA are contained in the DNA. This fact would be like having a CD that contained all of the instructions explaining how to build a CD player. However, if there were no CD player to play the information on, how could we ever get those instructions out? This means that DNA and RNA are chemically codependent and were created into existence simultaneously, according to many creation science researchers.

THE FOURTH CREATION DAY – THE STARS

On the fourth day, God filled the universe with galaxies, stars, planets, and moons from the matter and energy created during the universal flash of light on the first day. These heavenly spheres were to function as markers for years, seasons, months, weeks, and days (Genesis 1:14-19 NKJV). The sun marked the day (sunset to sunset), the moon marked the month (new moon to new moon), and the stars marked the seasons (spring, summer, winter, and autumn). The pre-flood year was 360 days long, its month equaled 30 days, and its week equal seven days, according to some creation science researchers. Time as we know it began during this day; however, if we could measure the period of the first three days, each day would equal 24 hours in duration because Exodus 20:11 says God created all things in six days.

The light from the stars reach the Earth rapidly. The speed of light was faster during the creation week than it is today (300,000 km per second) because the speed of light has been slowing down since the creation week, according to astronomer Barry Setterfield. Animals and plants were able to survive faster light speed because the pre-flood crystalline canopy offered stronger protection from deadly outer-space radiation, according to Dr. Carl Baugh. The star light was also able to reach the planet Earth faster because of the gravitational space time dilation effect proliferating throughout the universe during the creation week, according to Dr. Russell Humphreys.

The creation of galaxies included billions of star systems and interstellar matter that make up the universe. The Galaxies vary considerably in size, composition, structure, and activity, but nearly all are arranged in groups, or clusters, containing from a few galaxies to as many as 10,000. Each is composed of millions to trillions of stars; in many, as in the Milky Way Galaxy, nebulae can be detected. A large fraction of the bright galaxies in the sky are spiral galaxies, with a main disk in which spiral arms wind out from the center. The Milky Way Galaxy is probably located near the center of the universe, according to Dr. Russell Humphreys. The stars in galaxies are massive celestial body of gas that shines by radiant energy generated inside it. The Milky Way Galaxy contains hundreds of billions of stars and only small fractions are visible to the unaided eye.  The Sun is a star around which the components of the solar system revolve. This star system was created less than 10,000 years ago and is the dominant body in our solar system, with more than 99 percent of its mass.

The creation of planets included large natural bodies orbiting the Sun or another star system. The word planet comes from the Greek for “wanderer,” because the planets’ positions change relative to those of the stars. The eight recognized planets that orbit the Sun are, in order of increasing distance, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. The moon was created to be the sole natural satellite of Earth. The moon orbits from west to east at a mean distance of approximately 384,400 kilometers. It is less than one-third the size of Earth. Its surface gravity is about one-sixth that of Earth and its gravitational pull is largely responsible for Earth’s tides. The Moon shines by reflected sunlight. It rotates on its axis in about 29.5 days, in exactly the time it takes to orbit Earth, and it therefore always presents the same face to Earth. However, that face is lit by the Sun at different angles as the Moon revolves around Earth, causing it to display different phases over the month, from new to full.

THE FIFTH CREATION DAY – FLYING CREATURES AND MARINE ANIMALS

On the fifth day, God filled the sky with flying creatures and the ocean with marine life forms.  These creatures included fishes, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds, and insects.  The fossil record show that these creatures were larger in size probably because they lived longer in an environment designed for maximum genetic expression. God created many other life forms during the Fifth Day, but only the fishes and birds are mentioned. God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” (Genesis 1:20-23 NKJV). Furthermore, when God created all marine life forms and all flying creatures, this may be the time when God made flying insects also. All of these creatures are made with the ability to perpetuate their kind by biological reproduction. The creatures made on Day Five are the first creatures blessed by God.

The creation of marine reptiles included the ancestors of the Leviathan. The Leviathan is the marine animal described by God in the book of Job (chapter 41) as a terrifying fire-breathing sea monster. The creature is described as a strong beast with a tough outer “armor”. He cannot be pulled out with a fishhook and no warrior dares to fight him. This animal breathed fire and snorted out smoke.  The Leviathan is a reference to an extinct animal that was alive and known to those that lived during the pre-flood and  early post flood eras. This animal was probably a plesiosaur, such as the Kronosaurus, others have proposes it was the giant armored crocodile Sarcosuchus.

The creation of flying reptiles included the Pterosaurs. Their wings were designed by God with a membrane of skin, muscle, and other tissues stretching from the ankles to a dramatically lengthened fourth finger. Some kinds had long, fully toothed jaws and long tails, while other kinds had a highly reduced tail, and some lacked teeth. Many sported furry coats made up of hair-like filaments, which covered their bodies and parts of their wings.

THE SIXTH CREATION DAY – LAND ANIMALS AND HUMANKIND

On the sixth day, God filled the Earth’s landmass with animals, and humankind. This day’s work included the creation of land dwelling insects, reptiles, mammals, flightless birds, along with sauropod and theropod dinosaurs. God created many other living systems during the Sixth Day, but Moses only mentions a few creatures and humankind.  The global flood and post-flood climatic transformations caused massive extinctions that decimated many land animal kinds created on the sixth day. Many pre-flood animal kinds are only found within the fossil record. The post-flood Earth was replenished with animals with superior capacity to adapt to changing environments. (Genesis 1:24-31 NKJV).

God reveals that each living creature on the land is created “according to their kind.” This refutes the notion that all species of animals evolved from a single, common, primeval organism. It supports the scientific evidence that living creatures have adapted over time to their environment, while there is no convincing evidence that one species of animal has evolved into another. God created humankind in His own image. God saw everything that He had made, and it was “good” (1:4, 10, 12, 18, 21, 25, 31). It is interesting to note that God declared all that he had made on the sixth day “very good” perhaps to stress the relative significance of this day in comparison to the prior days.

Before God creates humankind, the Creator takes counsel with Himself (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit), and “God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness’” (Genesis 1:26). These words are an early revelation of the Divine Trinity and they are part of the foundation for such, as God reveals an “us” within the Godhead. God makes humankind, and humankind is made in the image of God (men and women are made in God’s Triune image) and we are special above all other life forms. To emphasize this fact, God places humanity in authority over the Earth and over all the other life forms. God blesses humankind and commands them to reproduce, fill the Earth and subdue it. God announces that humankind and all other land animals are to eat plants alone. Finally, God’s creative work is complete by the conclusion of the Sixth Day. The entire universe in all its beauty and perfection was fully formed in six literal, consecutive, 24-hour days. At the completion of His creation, God announces that His creation was very good.

THE SEVENTH CREATION DAY – SABBATH REST

On the Seventh Day, God concluded His work on creation; and He RESTED, not because God was tired, but because the seventh day of the creation week was a type of the Sabbath. This appears clear from Exodus 20:11 because Moses wrote that “For in six days the Lord made Heaven and Earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the SEVENTH day; wherefore the Lord blessed the SABBATH day, and hallowed it.” According to the paleo-Hebrew in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Greek Septuagint version of the Holy Bible, this passage says that God CEASE from working (Genesis 2:1-2 NKJV and LXX), which indicates that God was never tired, but that God only stopped working on the seventh day. In other words, this day reveals that God is establishing a pattern of one day in the seven day week for humankind to rest, to reflect, to worship, and to enjoy life. The keeping of this day will eventually be a distinguishing trait of God’s chosen people (Exodus 20:8-11).

YOUNG EARTH CREATION SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS

Many creation science researchers believe the young Earth creation science theory is the most biblical and scientific view. They are convinced that this theory reveals how God created the Universe less than 10,000 years ago before renovating it and creating all known life forms on Earth in six consecutive, literal days (24 hours) , as we count time today on planet Earth (Exodus 20:11). One potential problem for this creation theory is the science of astronomy. If the light from a star is 10 million light years away, then that light presumably takes 10 million years to reach the planet earth, and astronomers are witnessing ancient history.  While God could have created the light in such a manner to appear much older than it really is, how does an astronomer explain star explosions from distant places in the universe? Do astronomers witness explosions from stars that never existed? Do these explosions somehow exceed the known speed of light (300,000 kilometers per second)? Or is it possible that the universe is much older than young-earth creation science researchers believe it is? Many young earth creation astronomers answer these questions with scientific research indicating that the universe expanded rapidly during the creation week causing gravitational space time dilation, according to astrophysicist Dr. Russell Humphreys. Additionally, they argue that the speed of light was faster during the past than it is today, according to astrophysicist Barry Setterfield. In other words, the slowing down of light-speed along with the gravitational space time dilation effect makes the universe both 16 billion years old and less than 10,000 years old, according to Dr. Chuck Missler.

The Young Earth creation theory appears to be the most biblically consistent view because the Holy Scriptures reveal that God always create things fully functional and instantaneously with little or no time involved. For example, when Moses threw his staff down on the ground, God transformed it into a snake immediately (Exodus 4:3, 7:10-12) because no evolution was necessary for the Creator.  Furthermore, Messiah Yeshua who is God manifest in human flesh (John 1-14, 1-Timothy 3:16) never used evolution or progressive creation to accomplish His miracles recorded in the four gospels. Therefore, the Young Earth creation view is clearly the most biblical because all other creation theories attempt to mix philosophical naturalism with biblical supernaturalism.  Additionally, we must understand that the Genesis account of creation was never intended to be a complete scientific explanation of creation history nor was it intended to be a complete catalogue of all the humans and animals living in the past. We should realize that it would have been impossible for any human author to write all this history. When Messiah Yeshua was resurrected, He showed His disciples many signs that John said could not all be written in a book (John. 20:30 NKJV). In other words, the primary purpose of Genesis was to highlight the major creative acts of God, which portends God’s future plan for humanity.

Genesis chapter one reveals the first account of creation, while Genesis chapter two discusses the second creation account by showing the details of the Sixth Day. The first chapter reveals that God calls the universe into existence in an orderly and symmetrical manner. The words UNFORMED and UNFILLED provide a structure for the six days of creation. The first three days of forming corresponds to the last three days of filling. God is presented as a person. He commands the universe into existence. The words “God said and God saw that it was good” offers shape to the creation history because these key words introduce every act of creation, while emphasizing the perfection of God’s work. Each creation day begins in the evening and concludes in the morning because the ancient Israelites calculated the day from sunset to sunset, which explains why evening is mentioned before morning. The seventh day is the beginning of human history; therefore, it has no evening or morning.  Genesis 1: 27 reveal that Humankind (man and woman) reflects God in a spiritual rather than a physical sense. God grants humanity the power and capability to rule, create, and make moral decisions. The creation history takes place over seven days because seven is God’s number of completion.

Finally, many critics of the Young Earth Creation theory argue that its supporters embrace hyper-literalism and over interpretation. Atheists and agnostics often attack the Holy Scriptures with Hyper-literalism because many critics of the Sacred Scriptures fail to understand that the Holy Bible uses the visual language of the Middle Eastern paleo-Hebrew culture and not the language of precise scientific description. Although the Young Earth Creation theory appears to be consistent with the Holy Scriptures, some biblical scholars and creation scientists reject this theory because they believe the Holy Bible and scientific observations are against its conclusions. Therefore, while this theory appears to be the most concrete and direct interpretation of the Genesis creation account, it ignores biblical creation passages outside of Genesis and it ignores huge volumes of scientific literature related to the subject of origins. This analysis does not mean this theory is wrong, but that the Young Earth Creation theory needs to be supported by more biblical, historic, and scientific evidence.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA RE-ELECTION BIBLE CODES

BIBLE CODE OBAMA REELECTION

The bible codes appear to indicate that President Barack Hussein Obama (ברק אובמה) may be reelected (בחירתו מחדש) for another term during the 2012 presidential elections. A review of bible codes found by this author and  Rabbi Glazerson appears to confirm Obama’s reelection for another term.

Analysis of equidistant letter spacing (ELS) bible codes found in the Book of Ezekiel by this author reveal the Hebrew words for Barack Obama, President, twice, election, win and more. The ELS codes also show the Hebrew words for war, atomic, Israel, Syria, Iran, and USA associated with Obama’s name. The ELS codes were as large as negative 1046 and as small as positive one. This is usually indicative of a statistically significant code.  Additional study of the ELS codes indicate that Israel, Syria, and Iran could be at war during and after Obama’s presidential campaign. The ELS codes could be a warning of limited usage of tactical nuclear weapons in the Mideast region.

Obama will experience another challenging and difficult campaign for the presidency. According to Biography Online, Obama is the 44th and current U.S. President. He is the first African American to hold that office in U.S. history. From 2005 to 2008, Obama served as a U.S. Senator from Illinois prior to resigning after his victory in the presidential election, according to press profiles.

During the 2012 general election, Obama will battle Republican Mitt Romney for the American presidency. According to BBC News, Romney is a successful American politician and businessman. From 2003 to 2007, Romney was Massachusetts’ governor before he became the candidate for the 2008 and 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination. Political observers and analysts place him among the leading GOP front-runners in the 2012 political race for the presidency, according to the Wall Street Journal. Both Obama and Romney will experience the most heated, divisive, ugliest, and dirtiest political campaign in American political history because of ethnic racism, xenophobia, religious bigotry, class warfare, and the U.S. economy.

Romney will not be president because the Republican Party’s leadership is currently focused on the 2016 elections, and many Republican voters reject Romney’s Mormon religion, and a few conservative Republicans believe that Romney is not conservative enough. Additionally, while Obama will be damaged by Romney’s political war machine, he will win the presidency because of strong support from liberals, independents, and African American voters.
