    Evidence is not a Barrier to a Belief in God

    Evidence is not a Barrier to a Belief in God

    Human beings are masters at making excuses. We can convincingly provide the most vivid and detailed reasons for why we do things, as well as why we will not or cannot do other things. I have discovered that over the past four decades—after providing the most compelling evidence for the existence of God—about 90 percent of those who claim they do not believe in God for lack of evidence still will not believe, even after compelling facts are staring them in the face.

    Jesus said that the reason that men will not come and receive Him as their Savior is because—they love their sins more than they love Him.

    John 3:19 (Jesus speaking) This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. (NIV)

    For this reason, it is really a waste of time to try and convince most people that God exists, by evidence. Until a person reaches a place in their life where they see themselves as a sinner who is in need of a Savior, they will not be willing to change their life or their belief system—at all. I think that debating with atheists over the proof for the existence of God is a futile exercise. They do not want to be convinced, and there is no amount of facts or evidence that will ever convince most people. What is needed is a change of heart; and unless this takes place, the data for God is really not necessary.

    The Prophecy of Tyre

    The Prophecy of Tyre

    About 2 1/2 to 3 years after the Lord predicted this prophecy against Tyre in 588 b.c., Nebuchadnezzar began his siege of Tyre. The way in which the Babylonians overcame a city was to surround it, cut off their food supply, and gradually starve the people into surrender. This was the method that Nebuchadnezzar used as he eventually overcame Jerusalem. The Babyloninas surrounded the city of Jerusalem, and cut off their food supply. When Jerusalm used up all of their food 2 years later, they became so hungry they were eating their own children, which incidentally the Lord had also also predicted. Jerusalem became so weakened by starvation that Nebuchadnezzar easily overcame the cityand took it captive.

    The city of Tyre was a completely different matter… Tyre was on the coast of the mediterranean sea. The walls of the city went all the way up to the sea completely cutting off Tyre from any land attack. As He had done with Jerusalem, Nebuchadnezzar cut off all of Tyre’s food and water supply on the mainland, but he could not cut off Tyre’s food supply from the sea because their Phoenician navy was so powerful. Tyre also had plenty of fresh water suppl. Archeologists have discovered an underground spring in the ruins of Tyre that produces over 10 million gallons of fresh water per day! The siege by Nebuchadnezzar over Tyre took 13 years.

  • Evolution Refuted by Their Own Evidence

    Evolution Refuted by Their Own Evidence

    There is a very good reason that Evolution is called “The theory of Evolution”

    Theory: “An uncertain belief that is at present unprovable, that is being used to explain something that is based on a general set of principles that are as yet unexplained.

    Evolution is simply a group of ideas that are being used to prove that life originated from a series of mutations. The problem with the present “theory” is that after 100 years, there is still no solid empirical evidence that conclusively proves the theory of evolution.

    Often, you will hear those that claim to be experts in evolution, put forth statements that appear to be authoritative and conclusive. What we discover in reality is that these are unprovable ideas that have no real scientific basis.

    In January of 2009, a publication called “15 Evolutionary Gems” listed what they called “a succinct briefing on why evolution by natural selection is an empirically validated”. Written by Henry Gee, Rory Howlett and Philip Campbell, this publication describes itself as “a resource from nature for those wishing to spread awareness of evidence for evolution by natural selection”.

    In reality, the 15 points made by these three men are nothing more than foolishness and pandering to the lost cause that evolution is conclusive and absolute. I originally intended on refuting all 15 of the claims for evidence that these three men have published as evolutionary facts. Upon examination of the first “proof” that they offered, it became so apparent that all of these claims are utterly ridiculous with no real scientific or rational basis, I ended my article on this subject after the first proof from their publication. To continue to refute all 15 is really a waste of your time and mine. In every case, all of the points of “eidence” that are presented by these men, are as easily refuted as the first example I gave here.

    Life on Earth to End… In 4 Billion Years

    Life on Earth to End… In 4 Billion Years

    Four billion years from now, the Milky Way galaxy as we know it will cease to exist.

    Our Milky Way is bound for a head-on collision with the similar-sized Andromeda galaxy, researchers announced today (May 31). Over time, the huge galactic smashup will create an entirely new hybrid galaxy, one likely bearing an elliptical shape rather than the Milky Way’s trademark spiral-armed disk.

    “We do know of other galaxies in the local universe around us that are in the process of colliding and merging,” Roeland van der Marel, of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, told reporters today. “However, what makes the future merger of the Andromeda galaxy and the Milky Way so special is that it will happen to us.” ‘We do know of other galaxies in the local universe around us that are in the process of colliding and merging.’

  • “In the Beginning”… You Weren’t There

    “In the Beginning”… You Weren’t There

    According to Lawrence Krauss, the author of “A Universe From Nothing”, and many other bestselling books on Physics and Cosmology, the universe began from nothing. The universe being flat, and about 13.7 billions years old, is made up of 30 percent dark matter and 70 percent dark energy. Mr. Krauss says that if we subtract everything in the universe that is visible, including all human life, the Cosmos will not change at all.

    In his opinion, this tells us that human beings are “even more insignificant than any of us ever imagined.”

    In his famous Youtube video on the universe originating from nothing, Mr. Krauss states: “We are completely irrelevant. Why such a universe would be made for us when we are so irrelevant, is beyond me…”

  • Asteroid 2011 AG5 on a Collision Course With Earth

    Asteroid 2011 AG5 on a Collision Course With Earth

    Those who study Bible Prophecy are always interested in the occurrences of Near Earth Objects that will pass within close proximity to earth. The potential for massive destruction and loss of human life, in the event of an impact by one of these larger Asteroids, gives great cause for concern.

    Asteroid 2011 AG5, is one of the most recent giants that has given scientists alarm. At more than 460 feet wide, this space rock is on a potential collision course with Earth in the year 2040. The estimated destructive power of an impact with Earth by this asteroid is about 105 Megatons of TNT, or approximately 2 larger Thermonuclear Detonations.

    In reminiscence of the recent movies “Armageddon” and “Deep Impact”, scientists have already given such great concern to this asteroid that they are planning how to deflect it.

    Discovered in January of 2011, we are only now learning of this dangerous asteroid from the scientific community. It makes us wonder if a planet killer were ever on a direct course with earth, if we would ever know about such a threat, before it would happen.

    The Desperate Search to Find Life on Other Planets

    The Desperate Search to Find Life on Other Planets

    It seems that every week a new report comes out from the scientific community, that a planet has been discovered where “life is possible”. What is not stated, is that the variables necessary to make human life possible are categorically Impossible.

    In a previous article, (Click Here) I detail the finely tuned environment necessary for earth to support human life, and the fact that it is virtually impossible for these conditions to exist, unless someone designed these specific conditions and continues to control them, to make life possible on earth.

    Uniqueness in the placement of Earth in the Universe, and the specific placement of the Milky Way Galaxy in the Universe:

    Comet “Lovejoy” Passes Through the Sun Unharmed

    Comet “Lovejoy” Passes Through the Sun Unharmed

    Every once in a while, news comes out of NASA that is truly stunning. A recent Comet discovered by an amateur Astronomer in Australia has peaked the interest of Scientists and Astronomers around the world.

    Each year there are thousands of small comets that have a trajectory that bring them into the atmosphere of the Sun. Upon entrance to the Sun’s atmosphere, these masses of ice and rock, disintegrate and vaporize.

    Comet “Lovejoy”, as was named by amateur Atsronomer Terry Lovejoy, was different. Upon entering the Sun’s massive heat, the tail disappeared. Astronomers expected the comet to vaporize, as do all other comets that have entered the Sun’s super heated atmosphere in the past. Lovejoy not only failed to vaporize, but came out the other side of the Sun’s atmosphere seemingly unscathed, once again with a massive tail.

  • “Second Earth”, Kepler-22b Unlikely to Have Intelligent Life

    “Second Earth”, Kepler-22b Unlikely to Have Intelligent Life

    There has been much excitement in the world of Astronomy and Science recently, as a newly discovered planet named, ‘Kepler-22b’ is said to have the possibility of life. In an “inhabitable zone” around a star that is about 25 percent less luminous than our own sun, kepler-22b is 600 light years from Earth. This incredible distance of over 360 trillion miles would mean that it would take over 600 years to reach this planet from earth, if you could travel at the speed of light at 186 million miles per second.

    Although the possibility of life on any planet in the universe is exciting news, it is important to note that at the present time, this new data is highly speculative. No one has actually seen the planet through a telescope to verify it has water or life of any kind. The date used to make the present determination that this could be a planet similar to earth, is by an analysis of the heat reading of the planet that tells scientists water may be present.

    The Real Purpose of Technology

    The Real Purpose of Technology

    I am sitting in the corner of the local Starbucks in Cebu City, Philippines listening to the conversations and watching the customers who sit nearby. There are three Korean teens with their noses pressed close to their iPhone’s, apparently discussing the video game they are playing. A Filipina near the Korean teens gazes at her new iPad, then looks around the room to see who is watching her. All over the sidewalk are hundreds of passersby with their faces close to their cell phones, thumbs moving at breakneck speed. I wonder how many come to this public place to be seen with their devices, verses those who just want to use them for the purposes they were intended?

    The Tech companies must know that the value of many of their devices is not it the capability of the device, but in the imparted social value they have by a consumer walking around the mall with one. A few years ago here in the Philippines, a single iPhone or iPad could not be found in the hands of any consumer. Since I moved here permanently a year ago, it seems that every teen and young adult has an Apple product in their hands.

  • Evidence of the Rapture from the First Century

    Evidence of the Rapture from the First Century

    A recent archaeological discovery dated from the first century, confirms that those in the early church believed in the resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as their own future resurrection from the dead, if they would trust Christ.

    Officially labeled as NCE 156 and written in the Greek language on stone, the text of the inscription reveals the Biblical belief in a “Bridal Chamber” awaiting those who die in Christ. The promise given by Jesus at our death, or that we should be alive when He comes for His church, is that we will be His Bride.

    John 3:29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled.

    1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

    The idea of a Bridal chamber came from an old testament verse that describes a time of indignation or wrath occurring on the earth, while those who trust in the Savior as His Bride, will be hidden in that chamber until the indignation has passed.

    Isaiah 26:19-21 Your dead shall live; Together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; For your dew is like the dew of herbs, And the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. For behold, the LORD comes out of His place To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; The earth will also disclose her blood, And will no more cover her slain.

    Anatomy of Japan’s Nuclear Plant Meltdown

    Anatomy of Japan’s Nuclear Plant Meltdown

    In the 1979 movie “The China Syndrome” a nuclear reactor experiences a meltdown of it’s core.

    In this hypothetical scenario, nuclear material located within a containment building reaches a temperature beyond a manageable capacity. As the temperatures increase, the reactor melts and burns through the foundation of the power plant and into the crust of the earth.

    The idea behind the term “China Syndrome” is that once the nuclear material generates heat beyond 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit, it could continue to burn itself all the way through the earth, to the other side of the planet, stopping at China.

    The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan has 6 “Boiling Water” reactors that were completed in the late 70′s. In fact, the plant that has reached a critical place of possible meltdown was designed by the United States.

    The Anatomy of a Tsunami

    The Anatomy of a Tsunami

    Traveling at more than 500 miles an hour by the violent action of a displaced sea floor, volcanic eruptions, underwater landslides or tectonic earthquakes, massive amounts of sea water are thrust upward into a series of waves. Called a Tsunami (Tsoo-nah-mee) by the Japanese, the name of this ocean phenomenon comes from the Japanese words “Harbor Wave”.

    Traveling with the force of the entire ocean within the wave, these monsters of the deep are barely recognizable in the open sea. A ship traveling across the ocean would most likely not even detect a Tsunami moving at subsonic speeds as it passes underneath.

    It is only when the depth of water begins to decrease as land approaches, that these leviathans of the deep raise themselves into a force that can destroy an entire city in a few minutes.

    Egypt, History and the Bible

    Egypt, History and the Bible

    God has intervened into the affairs of mankind many times. The original King James Bible faithfully records these events. And it is always exciting to discover archaeological remains that increase our understanding of these historical events. It is a tragic fact that many “secular” records have been found that totally confirm history as presented in the Bible but portions of these have been intentionally destroyed or hidden by “scholars” (evolutionists\atheists) who take it upon themselves to “manage” archaeological evidence to suit their own deceptive purposes. The Turin Papyrus, which was prepared in the late 18th dynasty and included lists of all the kings of every dynasty of ancient Egypt through the 18th, was found in a temple excavation during the 19th century. The King of Sardinia carefully preserved it and entrusted it to some “scholars” at Turin for translation. It arrived in perfect condition but the “scholars” destroyed or hid most of it because they realized that it proved the “long dynastic” history of Egypt to be untrue. To “explain” the “changed condition” of the papyrus, they accused the king of Sardinia of sending it “unwrapped”. The Palermo Stone contained a similar list, and while many “scholars” quote from “missing parts” of the stone, “unapproved researchers” can only have access to a few fragments. It is obvious that the stone was “broken” recently as all inner edges of the fragments show recent fracture conditions.

    A leading “archaeologist” on the board of B.A.R. once said to me in the presence of Mary Nell, ” Your problem, Ron, is that you excavate a location to see what is there; you should decide what you want to be there first and then make it turn out that way”. Mary Nell had refused to believe me when I told her that this is what archaeologists do. She was shocked to hear it “from the horse’s mouth”.

    Those of you who like to “dig” through history books might wish to read ARCHAIC EGYPT by W.B. Emery-Penguin Books Reprint 1984. This author is one of the rare few who admit how truly limited our knowledge of ancient Egypt is: “Unfortunately, our knowledge of the archaic hieroglyphs is so limited that reliable translation of these invaluable texts is at present beyond our power and we can only pick out odd words and groups which give us only the vaguest interpretations.” (p. 59.) Yet, in the majority of books, translations and conclusions are never stated as being theory; they are stated as firm fact.

    Stealth Computer Virus Disables Iran’s Reactor’s

    Stealth Computer Virus Disables Iran’s Reactor’s

    In the 20th century, this would have been a job for James Bond.

    The mission: Infiltrate the highly advanced, securely guarded enemy headquarters where scientists in the clutches of an evil master are secretly building a weapon that can destroy the world. Then render that weapon harmless and escape undetected.

    But in the 21st century, Bond doesn’t get the call. Instead, the job is handled by a suave and very sophisticated secret computer worm, a jumble of code called Stuxnet, which in the last year has not only crippled Iran’s nuclear program but has caused a major rethinking of computer security around the globe.

    Intelligence agencies, computer security companies and the nuclear industry have been trying to analyze the worm since it was discovered in June by a Belarus-based company that was doing business in Iran. And what they’ve all found, says Sean McGurk, the Homeland Security Department’s acting director of national cyber security and communications integration, is a “game changer.”

    The construction of the worm was so advanced, it was “like the arrival of an F-35 into aWorld War I battlefield,” says Ralph Langner, the computer expert who was the first to sound the alarm about Stuxnet. Others have called it the first “weaponized” computer virus.

    Simply put, Stuxnet is an incredibly advanced, undetectable computer worm that took years to construct and was designed to jump from computer to computer until it found the specific, protected control system that it aimed to destroy: Iran’s nuclear enrichment program.

    The target was seemingly impenetrable; for security reasons, it lay several stories underground and was not connected to the World Wide Web. And that meant Stuxnet had to act as sort of a computer cruise missile: As it made its passage through a set of unconnected computers, it had to grow and adapt to security measures and other changes until it reached one that could bring it into the nuclear facility.

    Egypt Shuts Down the Internet

    Egypt Shuts Down the Internet

    IDG News Service - “When countries block, we evolve,” an activist with the group We Rebuild wrote in a Twitter message on Friday.

    That’s just what many Egyptians have been doing this week, as groups like We Rebuild scramble to keep the country connected to the outside world, turning to landline telephones, fax machines and even ham radio to keep information flowing in and out of the country.

    Although one Internet service provider — Noor Group — remains in operation, Egypt’s government abruptly ordered the rest of the country’s ISPs to shut down their services just after midnight local time Thursday. Mobile networks have also been turned off in some areas.

    The blackout appears designed to disrupt organization of the country’s growing protest movement, which is calling for the ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

    “[B]asically, there are three ways of getting information out right now — get access to the Noor ISP (which has about 8% of the market), use a land line to call someone, or use dial-up,” Jillian York, a researcher with the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, said via e-mail.

    Egyptians with dial-up modems get no Internet connection when they call into their local ISP, but calling an international number to reach a modem in another country gives them a connection to the outside world.

    Russia’s New Missile Immune to U.S. Defense Systems

    Russia’s New Missile Immune to U.S. Defense Systems

    Russia’s new SS-18, code named “Satan” by NATO, is capable of delivering 10 Nuclear warheads with a range of almost 10,000 miles.

    Just one SS-18 Missile is up to 500 times more powerful than any of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during world war 2.

    Even more terrifying is the fact that all of the current U.S Missile Shields are not capable of stopping the technology that delivers this powerful weapon.

    “This applies in the fullest sense to the USA’s anti-missile defence system and to Nato’s (planned) European missile defence system,” said Artur Usenkov.

    Experts estimate that Russia currently has between 60 and 90 missile silo launchers hidden across the countryside of Russia. Only a direct hit from a thermonuclear weapon is capable of destroying one of these missile silo’s.

    Russia and the United States have been negotiating a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. Both countries were stating that they wanted to cut their spending for nuclear missile systems. No doubt this latest missile technology will required the U.S to answer with a greater system to stop such missile attacks, as well as a new long range Intercontinental Ballistic Missile systems.

  • The New Computer ‘Mark of the Beast’

    The New Computer ‘Mark of the Beast’

    Coming soon to your computer: “The Mark of the Beast?”

    President Obama is making plans to create and Internet identity for American. Howard Schmidt, the White House coordinator for Cybersecurity said “It’s “the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government” to centralize efforts toward creating an “identity ecosystem” for the Internet”

    This new department of the Obama administration will be first to address the issue of Internet identity, even before the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland security.

    Obama’s new “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” will be drafted and released by this summer. Schmidt said: “We are not talking about a national ID card,” Locke said at the Stanford event. “We are not talking about a government-controlled system. What we are talking about is enhancing online security and privacy, and reducing and perhaps even eliminating the need to memorize a dozen passwords, through creation and use of more trusted digital identities.”

    It is possible that a Smart Card or some type of Digital Signature Certificate will be issued to willing participants that will identify a person during financial transactions or other Internet business.

    The Government promises that no centralized database will be kept of the information voluntarily given by those who sign up for the new digital signature. As if the government has ever kept any of your personal information private.

    Whatever the new Digital Signature becomes, it is for certain that this type of technology will be a part of the new world order brought by the one referred to in the Bible as “The Beast”.
