Scientific Accuracies of The Bible

Scientific Accuracies of the Bible

Many people doubt the Bible for various reasons. One of them is that the Bible is not accurate scientifically, but this just isn't so. The Bible is not a book about science, but when it does speak scientifically, it is accurate. In fact, it was far ahead of any other writing of its time. Please consider the following...

The Earth is suspended in nothing
"He spreads out the northern [skies] over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing," (Job. 26:7, NIV).

This is particularly interesting, considering that the cosmology of other cultures at that time did not have the earth suspended in nothing, but rather upon pillars, or people, or animals.

The Stars are Innumerable

"He took him outside and said, 'Look up at the heavens and count the stars -- if indeed you can count them.' Then he said to him, 'So shall your offspring be,'" (Gen. 15:5, NIV).

The Existence of Valleys in the Seas

"The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at the rebuke of the LORD, at the blast of breath from his nostrils," (2 Sam. 22:16, NIV).

The Existence of Springs and Fountains in the Seas

"In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month -- on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened," (Genesis 7:11, NIV). See also Gen. 8:2; Prov. 8:28.

The Existence of Water Paths (Ocean Currents) in the Seas

"O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! ... When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, ... You made him [man] ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet ... the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas," (Psalm 8:1,3,6,8, NIV).

The Hydrologic Cycle

"He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight," (Job. 26:8, NIV). "He draws up the drops of water, which distill as rain to the streams; the clouds pour down their moisture and abundant showers fall on mankind," (Job 36:27-28, NIV)
"The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round and round it goes, ever returning on its course. All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again" (Ecclesiastes 1:6-7, NIV).

The Concept of Entropy

"In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded," (Psalm 102:25-26, NIV).

Modern feminism is Pseudo Feminism

first off I am totally opposed to ordaining women for several reasons. all practical. now, it also says elsewhere in the NT that the believer is to grow up into his head, Christ, be more like Him. both sexes have one model, a male, Jesus Christ. The order of creation theory, that man being made first before woman is closer to God, would have rocks plants, birds fishes creeping things various animals as closer to God than man is. Thios is perilously near to the deep ecology notion, so obviously this idea of man made first and woman made from him is therefore the head is not an absolute analogy but conditional else you risk heresy if pushed too far. (especially if you add the filioque run wild as per St. Photios the Great.)


If the believer is to grow up into the Head Who is Christ, then if man is head of woman she is to grow up into man, be more like him, he is her model. she should strive to be competent in the same ways man is.


The analogy to Christ as head however, has also to be conditional not absolute, because although He is 100% human He is also 100% divine, and the divine has no continuity of being or essence with the creature, while woman has continuity of human nature essence with the man.


Feminism of the third wave sort probably derived from "difference feminism" or pseudo feminism as I called it when it first appeared, is totally different. First there is generally a conflict of opposites implied or explicit in the ideas of masculinity and femininity, and frankly this has gone on all along anyway, but in a socially non destabilizing format. the occult philosophies invariably posit such Hegelian opposition butr without resolution in a synthesis. but some especially gnostic and third wave and "androgyny" do posit a synthesis, of continually inadequate women and soy boy emasculated men with the women ramped up enough to go to the gym, be inpolitics, public speaking, etc. all things considered unfeminine, unnatural, etc. by opponents of women suffrage even of women speaking or voting in organizatins that had both sexes in them in the 1800s.


Androgyny posits the same dialectic of opposition (complementary and so forth being a cover for this and a means of denial of women their birthright of development like a boy is encouraged to develop more pain resistant courageous, not phony, etc. stride freely and so forth)  and instead of saying there is something wrong with the sexist ideas, exalts it and then says to combine the "energies" of the sexes, instead of sorting out what's wrong in the sense of evil or wrong in the sense of inadequate and get rid of that and stop trying to be radically different and play all kinds of sick games.


The entire feminism mess of today, having some of its roots in problematic notions that were a minor feature in the 1800s and even in second wave feminism, which was then swamped by Marxism,  is FAKE FEMINSIM.  it is full blown difference feminism which claimed to have women be managers executives etc. without losing their "femininity" and no talk much of blue collar type jobs and marry for money as well as looks when you get down to it, it became a predatory version of the standard traditional man as provider woman as dependent therefore dominatable especially because of the personality encouraged in her, and is now armed with laws in case of divorce that MGTOW developed in reaction to. MGTOW assumes also all women are by EVOLUTION (heavy materialistic Ayn Randian and evolutionary notions inform this) to be predatory, disloyal, etc. etc. and monkey branch man to man and do hypergamy or dump a man for a "better" man i.e., better money and looks, and are incapable of love or truth or integrtity while men are inherently loving and truthful and have integrity. it almost reads like a reverse of Victorian balderdash about sacred womanhood and its virtues vs. low life man which must be raised to civilization and  decency by Woman (capitalized) a notion partly exploited by the women's suffrage movement, true. MGTOW posits that woman's inherent evil nature is held in check by patriarchal systems and some advocate taking away woman's vote and look longingly at the moslem control of men over women.


a modified Christian version posits similar, almost blasphemously implying God made women that way, and designed an order of rule that contains and limits the evil potential if obeyed.  like containment theory regarding communism.


Meanwhile, whether Christian or not, the male ego titillating and pandering manipulation esteemed is mere sin of pride and vain glory and the femininity that does this mere deceptive and somewhat vainglory and ambition insofar as she gets a "good provider" she can brag about and look down on stupider women who married lower, and can push him gently to become a high status male (more so than he is already since 80 % of women are competing in MGTOW social theory for 20% of men) so she is high status by being married to him. This is all evil.

God's Throne the heaven of heavens is in the north

interesting thing emailed to me from, some people whose other ideas are
a mix of good and bad so I won't name them lest they be a bad influence.
(yeah on the one hand we might be Babylon and evangelical church has
definitely struck a deal made in hell in joining with big money and
government and the intelligence community which is a major part of the
swampy deep state. But there are problems smoothly interspersed with all
this and dubious presuppositions.)

Doing research on some antiquity stuff, I noticed there seemed to be a
very ancient tradition of facing north to worship, a holdover from belief
in the True God YHWH.

"

HEAVEN IS IN THE NORTH OF OUR UNIVERSE


Whenever you ask a child, "Where is heaven?" they will usually point straight up. Twelve hours later if they were still pointing upward, they would be pointing in a totally different direction. Because the earth is turning on its axis constantly, the direction (when you point upward) is constantly changing. So then, where is heaven?
It appears from a study of the Scriptures that heaven is located in the north in our universe, and that is precisely why, when the priests offered sacrifices in the Old Testament, they would offer them northward toward the Lord. Notice what Moses said in Leviticus 1:11:
"And he shall kill the sacrifice on the side of the altar northward before the Lord: and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall sprinkle his blood round about upon the altar."

The implication is clear: the Lord's throne is in the north. "Northward before the Lord," says God's Word.
North is always the same direction from this planet no matter what time of day. If you were to point to the north in the morning, twelve hours later you would still be pointing in the same direction. No matter where the earth is in its orbit about the sun, north is always the same direction in relationship to the earth. So no matter what time of day or what time of year, north is always the same direction.
Moreover, the Bible suggests that salvation comes from the north. In Psalms 75:6 we read,
"For salvation cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south."
Therefore, it must come from the north since it is the only choice left.
Thirty-five hundred years ago in the book of Job in the Old Testament, God gave us an amazing. Job 26:7 says, He -
"... stretcheth out the north over the empty place."

THE SUPER VOID


Regarding the exact location of heaven, Sarah Knapton, the Science Editor for Britain's Daily Telegraph, reports that astronomers have now discovered a curious empty section which is missing around 10,000 galaxies - a super void, which is 1.8 billion light-years across. Istv├ín Szapudi of the University of Hawaii at Manoa described the object as possibly "the largest individual system ever identified by humanity." The Scriptures tell us that beyond this void is where heaven is.
Lucifer (Satan) in his rebellion (ie., when he tried to overthrow God in "eternity past") spoke of this void in the north. Isaiah 14:13 tells us,
"For thou [Satan] hast said in thine heart, I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the side of the north."

The Fall Of Satan

"12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north..." (Isaiah 14:12-13)
This undoubtedly refers to this empty space in the north where there are no stars.
Another fascinating passage of Scripture regarding the place where God's throne is, is found in Psalms 48:1-2:
"Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King."

Of COURSE Mueller INDICTS 12 Russian military officers for 2016 election meddling just DAYS before Trump meets Putin



Special counsel Robert Mueller claims to be investigating a ‘conspiracy’ between members of POTUS Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government. What is truly sickening about it is that  he’s one of them actually  in on a conspiracy — to undermine our duly-elected president.

On Friday, another co-conspirator, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, announced that Mueller has indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for allegedly  meddling in the 2016 election.

And this comes just a few days before Monday’s face-to-face meeting in Helsinki between POTUS Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Timing is everything, right?
...
The disgusting Deep State’s military-industrial complex can’t have peace with Russia and China because it would wither and lose its power and influence. Much better to remain on a hair-trigger nuclear status with both countries so we can blow each to bits someday!

As for the indictment, Mueller can’t seriously believe that Putin is going to surrender 12 of his GRU officers to the United States for a sham trial…does he? Because he didn’t believe that 13 other Russians he indicted earlier were going to fight back in court — until they did. Discovery in that case is ongoing.

How do we know this is bogus? Let us count the ways:

#1 - WikiLeaks founder and editor Julian Assange has said repeatedly that Russia did not hack the DNC’s emails and has even promised to provide evidence of same in exchange for a pardon. Assange and WikiLeaks  have never been proven wrong or to have lied.

#2 - A group of former U.S. intelligence officials including some former NSA agents has said they have examined the cyber-forensic evidence and have concluded that the DNC servers were not hacked. What’s more, the DNC has never allowed its servers to be examined by the FBI’s cyber-forensics team; so how can Mueller  know that “Russian officers” hacked them?

#3 - Philip Giraldi, a former CIA counterterrorism expert, military officer and recognized intelligence authority, in a December 2016 Facebook post, said there is “no evidence” to support the Obama administration accusation Russia was involved in the DNC ‘hack.’ He wrote that “apart from assertions of Russian activity connected to an unnamed political party, [the report] provides absolutely no evidence that the alleged intrusions into the DNC servers were anything beyond normal intelligence agency probing for vulnerabilities.” “In fact,” he adds, “it doesn’t even provide the evidence for that.”

#4 - The Russian “counterintelligence” investigation into the Trump campaign was bogus. It was based on a phony “dossier” that  came in three different versions — none of which have been substantiated.

#5 - Never forget that James Comey leaked  classified memos in order to trigger Mueller’s appointment. The whole thing was a set-up; Hillary Clinton is the real criminal here but she was  exonerated so she could remain in the race and ‘beat Donald Trump’ — or so everyone thought.

That Jeff Sessions has allowed this clown show to continue is a disgrace. Like POTUS Trump said, a make-believe probe which is wasting tens of millions of taxpayer dollars is also preventing our president  from pursuing his vision of foreign policy, which is his right. As we have noted, that’s a national security threat.

At least he’s not trying to enrich a terrorist-supporting regime (Iran) while making “deals” that will someday lead it to nuclear weapons.

Someday the guilty will be made to pay. And POTUS Trump won’t be among them because the only thing he’s done is dare to run for the presidency…and win.

Proverbs 31:10 et seq

The Virtuous Woman (or valorous, excellent, of noble character)
Proverbs 31:10-30 totally wrecks the unbiblical notions of what women should be like, and what a man
should find acceptable. An awful lot of what is taught as "biblical" is just baptized sin. Pride, ambition,
vainglory, dishonesty, cowardice, self indulgence are all denounced everywhere else, but get a free pass
if they are linked to women or men as part of their supposed created nature.

The Masoretic based KJV and others, and the Septuagint (LXX) from older texts than the Masoretic differ
slightly, but add up to the same thing.

"11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life."  no need of or temptation to dubioius
or wrong means of making money, involvement in pluder, or evenjust the results of the warfare
of business and the marketplace.

The Septuagint "Theheart ofher husband trusts  in her she will not be at a loss forfine
spoils, FOR SHE PROVIDES GOOD THINGS FOR HER HUSBAND ALL HER LIFE."

Hereit is clear as implied in the Masoretic, that she is one who brings home the bread a lot,
theone who comes home with the spoils of the competition of the marketplace. (The Talmud
saysthe text the Masoretics based on was flawed when they got it, they just froze it from more
errors. The Qumran Scrolls often agree with the LXX against the Masoretic,s omketimes a third
variantisshown to have exited, but they all add up to the same thing.

"13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
14She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
...
16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
[aggressive independent farming savvy businesswoman.]

17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
[very masculine terminology here. Likely does a lot of her own field work, nothing
unusual in itself for women in some parts of Asia and Africa.]

18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
[keeps track of finances and profit and loss not an airhead.]

19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
...
24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
[LXX says she is kind to her kids so they become rich, i.e., not torn down or smothered
but built up to get out and things done, incl. the females are raised this way since
it doesn't specify sons.]"

Notice that her husband is proud of her and he is also well known sits with the elders
in the cfity  gates, soshe is well known also.

Somuch for man the provider woman the housekeeper dependent and manipulator.
And theidea that remarriage was allowed because a woman couldn't survive without
marrying for money is also false.

the quest for unity in American Orthodoxy

" http://ocl.org/boycotting-the-boston-clergy-laity-congress/?utm_content=2011-11-11%2013%3A40%3A50&utm_source=VerticalResponse&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=Read%20more%20here&utm_campaign=%7EJoin%20the%20Call%20for%20a%20Self-Governing%20American%20Orthodox%20Church%21%7E
the situation described in the article below is one of the reasons I OPPOSE a self governing American ORthodox Church. as for canonical problems, the Roman Empire had more than one Metropolitan or Patriarch in its borders and the rule was one bishop per city not per region. I think the USA can manage the same way."
 
This is what I sent to the Orthodox Christian Laity group that sent me an email
seems their 11th get together called for a united Orthodox Church in America.
 
the history of this sort of thing is complicated, and generally such scream about canonical impropriety of the setup now, ignoring more important canonical improprieties that go on all the time regarding morals, finances, etc. some jurisdictions are better than others.
 
The Russians were the first in North America as per Orthodox Christianity. Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and part of San Francisco, Ft. Ross (the Bear in the California flag refers to the Russian part of California history, limited in scope and eclipsed by the Spanish.) When the Arab Christians and the Greeks arrived, the Russians provided clergy then they got their own from their home patriarchates.
 
The Orthodox Church in America, heavily Slavic in origin with connections to the dubious segment of the Russian expatriate community, two or three times declared themselves THE Orthodox Church in America, the last time getting a tomos of autocephaly from the Russian ORthodox Church in Moscow, the so called living church, which Stalin had reestablished as a patriarchate. The ROC had been disestablished as a patriarchate and made a department of the government by Tsar Peter the Great. reestablishing the patriarchate had been discussed during the interim between the Tsar Nicholas II's abdication and the Bolshevik revolution itself, but the church was put on the run with the rest of the "white Russians."
 
Meanwhile as per canon 28 of the Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon of AD 451 at a city in Asia Minor aka Anatolia now called Turkey, the Ecumenical Patriarchate or Greek Orthodox Church headquartered in a backwater of Constantinople now called Istanbul claims authority over all the barbarians including us, that didn't already have a Patriarch at the time. (since then various nations acquired their own patriarchate status so there are now 15 autocephalous churches which are canonical and in communion with each other, except for the spat between the Antiochian Patriarchate, which has operated out of Damascus for the past 500 or 600 years I forget why and the Jerusalem Patriarchate over Qatar's ORthodox Christians.)
