    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.

  • 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.

  • “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…”

    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.

  • The Human Spirit and Digital Information

    The Human Spirit and Digital Information

    Before a recent trip to Asia, I digitized several of my favorite DVD movies and placed them on my portable external hard drive for viewing at a later date. In the prior state as a DVD these movies took up a large amount of space that made them impossible to carry in my baggage. After the movies were changed into coded digital information and were placed on the external hard drive I could easily transport them in my baggage with no added weight whatsoever.

    This is possible because digital information has zero weight. How is it that thousands and thousands of pages of digital code placed on a data storage device can have no mass?

    When we speak of either a massive galaxy or a minute particle of dust, we do so in the same terms because they both have mass, charge, length and width. Yet when we speak of information and matter, these terms are no longer relevant because they have no mass or measure of weight.

    The weight of the 500 GB hard drive that I placed hundreds of movies on, weighed exactly the same before and after these digitized movies were added.

    In the human DNA genome, although it contains thousands and thousands of pages of digital information that directs the cells in their production of protein molecules, they add absolutely no weight to the DNA stand whatsoever. This leaves us with the perplexing question of exactly what is digital information and what is it comparable to?

    Is China the Newest ‘Internet Terrorist’ Threat?

    Is China the Newest ‘Internet Terrorist’ Threat?

    On April 8, 2010, China re-routed email exchanges from the United States Department of Defense, U.S. Senate, NASA and the Department of Commerce.

    Claiming that the re-routing was “accidental”, there is little doubt that it was malicious intent that was the true motive says the Security Review Commission.

    Larry Wortzel, a member of the commission, said: “We don’t know what was done with the data when they got it. When I see things like this happen, I ask, who might be interested with all the communications traffic from the entire Department of Defense and federal government? It’s probably not a graduate student at Shanghai University.

    “What could you do if you had the stream of email traffic for 18 minutes to and from the US Joint Chiefs of Staff? Most importantly you would get the internet addresses of everybody that communicated.”

    Mystery Missile Over California

    Mystery Missile Over California

    U.S. officials said Tuesday they couldn’t say what might have created a mysterious plume that set off an Internet frenzy after it streaked across the Southern California sky Monday night. But they said they were confident there was no threat to the United States.

    Speculation immediately arose that some sort of rocket or missile must have been fired after Los Angeles television station KCBS videotaped the spectacular trail from one of its traffic helicopters.

    But a Federal Aviation Administration official told NBC News that there were “no reports of unusual sightings” and that a review of radar replays “did not reveal a fast-moving object in that area.”

    That’s in line with the observations of scientists interviewed by NBC News and msnbc.com, who said that for all the sensation the video created on the Internet, the contrail was consistent what you’d see behind a normal jetliner or other large aircraft if you happened to spot it at sunset from the unusual aerial angle of the TV helicopter — in other words, it was probably an optical illusion.

    Proof of Creation: The Language of the Cell

    Proof of Creation: The Language of the Cell

    A protein floats through the cellular fluid with a very specific purpose; it’s a protein on a mission. Its goal? To get into the nucleus and make itself available for use in chromatin. It’s got an important step to make. It has to get past the door. That is, it has to get through a nuclear pore into the guts of the nucleus, and it can’t do it on its own.

    The cell is an amazing world of busy, building, eating, quality control, and transportation organic machines, and they have to communicate with each other. The extent of cellular communication is astounding and intimidating to biochemistry students, not to mention the casual observer of a metabolic pathways chart [see link below].

    The nucleus is the hub of the cell, the home of the DNA, where all the major orders are given. We are all well aware that DNA is a digital code that contains the blueprints for the body. It is not the only code in the cell, though. Our friend the protein can only pass into the nucleus if it presents the right code to the nucleus’ taxicab — its nuclear transport receptor. This code, or nuclear localization signal (NLS), is a specific sequence of amino acids that acts like an address label on the protein. A transport receptor called Importin pulls up next to the protein and sees the NLS on it and, like a shuttlebus, transports the protein into the nucleus. Hooray, the protein makes it through the pore. Excellent. It gets dropped off inside and goes about its business.

    Scientists Create Moving 3D Holograms

    Scientists Create Moving 3D Holograms

    More than 30 years after the famous Star Wars movie scene in which a hologram of Princess Leia appealed for help from Obi-Wan Kenobi, US researchers have unveiled holographic technology to transmit and view moving three-dimensional images. The scientists at the University of Arizona say their prototype “holographic three-dimensional telepresence” is the world’s first practical 3D transmission system that works without requiring viewers to wear special glasses or other devices. The research is published in the journal Nature.

    Potential applications range from telemedicine and teleconferencing to mass entertainment. “Holographic telepresence means we can record a three-dimensional image in one location and show it in another location, in real-time, anywhere in the world,” said Nasser Peyghambarian, project leader. Existing 3D projection systems produce either static holograms with excellent depth and resolution but no movement — or stereoscopic films, such as Avatar, which give the perspective from one viewpoint only and do not allow the viewer to walk around the image. The new technology combines motion with an impression of genuine solidity.

    U.S. Military Using ‘Mind Control’ On Our Soldiers

    U.S. Military Using ‘Mind Control’ On Our Soldiers

    The U.S. military long has been able to launch a missile, explode a bridge or fire a weapon with the push of a button. Under testing now is a system intended to control a soldier’s psychiatric status, make him alert, reduce his stress and intervene when he suffers pain, among other applications, with the press of a button.

    The plan is being developed by an assistant professor at Arizona State University’s School of Life Sciences, where William Tyler explains that available neurotechnology shows that “brain stimulation” is capable of treating neurological diseases and brain injuries as well as “serving platforms around which brain-computer interfaces can be built for various purposes.”

    In a report at the Armed with Science military website, Tyler explains that “Warfighters” can be given “strategic advantages” through helmets fitted with ultrasound transducers and microcontroller devices for a range of applications to include pain intervention, “cognitive enhancement,” reducing stress and anxiety, “behavioral reinforcement,” wakefulness and alertness, “navigational commands” and “neurological/psychiatric intervention.”

    Where Did God Come From?

    Where Did God Come From?

    Asking “Where did God come from” is a lot like reading a John Grisham novel and saying “This book has lawyers and judges and secretaries, but what page is John Grisham on?” The answer of course, is that John Grisham is not in the novel at all. He lives outside of the novel. He wrote it. He created the time line, the story and the characters. The novel is a book with a finite number of pages, a beginning and an end. But John Grisham lives a life that extends far beyond that book. Similarly, God lives outside of space and time. He created space. He created time. He is confined to neither of these things. It’s somewhat of a stretch for most of us to imagine that, but a physicist or mathematician will attest that it’s entirely reasonable. There is nothing absurd or illogical to speak of dimensions outside of space and time; in fact additional dimensions are necessary to rationally explain the universe. String theory in modern physics defines 11 dimensions, four of which we experience.

    NASA Could Land a Probe on Asteroid That May Hit Earth

    NASA Could Land a Probe on Asteroid That May Hit Earth

    Asteroid 1999 RQ36, which has a one-in-1,000 chance of hitting the Earth before the year 2200, would cause an explosion equivalent to hundreds of nuclear bombs detonating at once. An analysis of its orbit has predicted that it is most likely to hit us on September 24, 2182 but scientists want to collect a sample of the rock to help forecast its trajectory more accurately. If Nasa gives the plan the green light, the spacecraft would blast off in 2106 to map out and collect rock samples from the asteroid, which is 1,800 feet-wide. The planned mission, called OSIRIS-Rex, is one of three finalists in competition for funding as part of the cash-strapped US space agency’s New Frontiers program. The other contenders are missions to the Moon and to Venus respectively and the winner will be announced next year. Plans to land an astronaut on an asteroid will come under discussion at a two-day Nasa workshop in Washington DC starting on Tuesday. Nasa has officially classified RQ36 as a ‘potentially hazardous asteroid’ as it passes within about 280,000 miles of Earth. Its orbit, which brings it closer to Earth, makes it easier to reach than other asteroids.

    Scientific Experiment Show Plants Have Intelligence

    Scientific Experiment Show Plants Have Intelligence

    Do plants think? They don’t have brains or even neurons. But when scientists shined a light onto a leaf at the bottom of a plant, the entire plant “knew” how to react. Their studies uncovered evidence that plants not only have complex internal interactions, but that these are remarkably well-constructed to adapt for survival. The experiments were conducted on the thale cress plant. This relative of mustard and cabbage has become a model for plant experiments and plant genetic analyses. The researchers discovered that when certain biochemicals in the leaves were stressed with excess light intensity, they initiated a cascade of chemical communication that coursed through the whole plant along bundle sheath cells.
    These cells have long been known as photosynthetically active and tightly arranged around leaf veins. Thus, these cells pull at least quadruple duty: they protect leaf veins, support leaf structure, perform photosynthesis, and transmit electrochemical signals that activate specific biochemical switches in cells throughout the plant. Curious as to how the leaf collected the light data from its environment, translated it into relevant information, and then transmitted that information to the rest of the plant, the researchers tried to track plant responses that occurred in the dark after all experimental lights were turned off. Researcher Stanislaw Karpinski, of the Warsaw University of Life Sciences in Poland, toldBBC News that “the changes proceeded when the light was off… This was a complete surprise.”1

    Galactic Collision: Two Galaxies Collide

    Galactic Collision: Two Galaxies Collide

    A cosmic hit-and-run between two speeding galaxies has left one with a wispy tail speckled with stars, according to a new snapshot from a NASA space observatory. The new galaxy tail photo reveals the aftermath of a collision between the galaxy IC 3418 and a member of its neighboring Virgo galaxy cluster. The galactic smash-up occurred 54 million light-years from Earth and was spotted by NASA’s Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) observatory. These new observations from GALEX will help give astronomers a better understanding of how stars form, researchers said. “The gas in this galaxy is being blown back into a turbulent wake,” said Janice Hester of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., lead author of a recent study that was published in the Astrophysical Journal Letters. But stars still manage to form despite rough conditions in the galaxy’s tail, which stems from a mix of stellar winds and interstellar gas, Hester added.

    Scientists Create the First Synthetic Cell

    Scientists at the J. Craig Venter Institute have created a synthetic cell that can survive and reproduce itself according to an artificial DNA sequence, promising designer genomes with which researchers can produce sophisticated artificial organisms. The new bacterial cell, “Mycoplasma mycoides JCVI-syn1.0,” is the result of a 15-year, $30 million effort by genetics pioneer Craig Venter. The study, led by the institute’s Dan Gibson, is reported in the May 21 edition of the journal Science. The team of 25 researchers took Mycoplasma capricolum bacteria and completely rewrote its genetic code of more than 1 million base pairs of DNA. The data was sequenced as chemical DNA fragments and sewn together using yeast and E. coli bacteria.

    A Star Eating a Planet Found by Hubble

    A Star Eating a Planet Found by Hubble

    The hottest known planet in the Milky Way galaxy may also be its shortest-lived world. The doomed planet is being eaten by its parent star, according to observations made by a new instrument on NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS). The planet may only have another 10 million years left before it is completely devoured. The planet, called WASP-12b, is so close to its sunlike star that it is superheated to nearly 2,800 degrees Fahrenheit and stretched into a football shape by enormous tidal forces. The atmosphere has ballooned to nearly three times Jupiter’s radius and is spilling material onto the star. The planet is 40 percent more massive than Jupiter.

    The Next World War Could Be From Space

    The Next World War Could Be From Space

    The next world war could take place in cyberspace, the UN telecommunications agency chief warned Tuesday as experts called for action to stamp out cyber attacks.
    “The next world war could happen in cyberspace and that would be a catastrophe. We have to make sure that all countries understand that in that war, there is no such thing as a superpower,” Hamadoun Toure said.
    “Loss of vital networks would quickly cripple any nation, and none is immune to cyberattack,” added the secretary-general of the International Telecommunications Union during the ITU’s Telecom World 2009 fair in Geneva. (Breitbart)
    Toure said countries have become “critically dependent” on technology for commerce, finance, health care,emergency services and food distribution.
    “The best way to win a war is to avoid it in the first place,” he stressed.
