(I promised this to a few people. Ask yourself though if this is important, and if you and I are on the correct side of ‘science,’ keeping in mind God says there is ‘science falsely so-called.’ But do take note of the exaggerated pic at the outset and how ‘globularity’ is forced upon the brain, and THAT with purpose. Enjoy.)
Had the privilege the other day of engaging in a rare face-to-face discussion with a thoughtful fellow about this that, and the other. It is the ‘other’ that allowed me some finer thoughts on bias, perception, and strongholds which people have for well, no other reason than the illusion of mental safety, and the protection of long-held ideals.
Conversations flow naturally like water, and take unexpected turns like a whitetail deer on high alert, so the topic of religion popped up, (ha, it wasn’t my idea!) and I asked him to explain the Immaculate Conception of Mary. Without hesitation he assured me it was the virgin giving birth to a male without the aid of an earthly father.)
I told him this was a common assumption, but dead wrong. His eyes about jumped out of his head, as he thought I was nutso. I simply brought forth an important point about BELIEF, and how some cling tenaciously to something, without having examined all sides of the box, and by so doing, have limited vision and therefore lead to faulty conclusions.
He was stricken with awe as I proved to him that it was the conception of Mary which was allegedly immaculate, that this doctrine puts forth the notion it was she who was preserved sinless, mark that, that it was HER BIRTH, assumed to be free from the stain of original sin. He thanked me for this unexpected piece of enlightenment, as I stated that this idea has not one shred of support from scripture, but like a golden calf has long entrenched the beautiful people while providing not light, but fog.
But there is more. I think no less of him for his ignorance in this, as some traditions are stubborn masters, but I wondered why some believers think less of others when they do not cross their tees and dot their eyes in matters equally or even more important.
This ASSUMPTION of things is contagious and proven by the evolutionists and atheists also, as they specialize in houses made of pencil and paper, in which, much to my own chagrin, far too many believers have inadvertently pitched their tent in the wrong camp, and needlessly suffer intellectual compromise. The self-inflicted pain of unnecessary compromise and lasting scars left by assumptions need not be.
Darwin asserts man was not always man, that birds were not always birds, whales were something else, and this so-called science which is untestable, never repeatable, and never observable, yet somehow is ‘true,’ is latched onto by believers who are guilty of similar assumptions as our Catholic friend: good intentions, but wrong.
Further. Many have crawled into bed with the godless ‘theories‘ of an ‘alleged‘ spinning ball called earth, orbiting at an ‘assumed’ 67,000 mph, and with a straight face tell you the Rockies are not still as death as they ‘orbit’ God knows what, at this bizarre speed that would no doubt kill every butterfly and goose in flight. The boy catching a pop fly in Little League must also be oblivious to the fact that he is spinning while he stands still waiting for the ball to land in his mitt. Yikes. Who can process such nonsense?
These are the same ‘experts’ who sit alongside the other folks agreeing with the premise that says Adam never lived, Moses and the exodus was fiction, Daniel never met a lion, the Baptist in the wilderness was but a kid’s tale, Mary and Martha did not have a brother named Lazarus, and of course, Golgotha’s hill was not the place that held a certain One on yonder central tree.
Do you see the diabolical connections and WHY it is important to prove all things? My catholic friend did not prove all things, as his assumption, well intended as it was, had no basis in fact or reality. Wishful thinking, that’s all. But the ‘science’ of the godless despises the science of scripture, and this is a tragic unequal yoke, IF SCRIPTURE BE OUR GUIDE.
Which reminds me. This globe ball thing, with railroads supposedly traversing up and down, all around like a circus ferris wheel to get from LA to NYC, from Timbuktu to Djibouti, from the Cape of Good Hope to Cape Fear, has not been proven by they who hold such views. It cannot be proven, as the earth itself cries with loud protest against such a charge, as the assumptions are startling.
Yet, it is not the facts of a stationary earth that we now speak of, but of the disdain that believers show toward other believers who do not agree with them that arrests my attention, and there are many, I have this subtle gift (thank God) of reading between the lines, even among friends who have decided to cite others as ‘intellectual idiots’ for thinking so. Some call it discernment.
I pity such ones, not because of disagreement, but because of ‘assuming’ things they have never examined, and cling to automatic traditions, because of birthright, or because of the appearance of wanting to be seen as credible, or enlightened, to ‘fit in’ as it were, to be on the same team as modern science! I want no such playmates.
The boast of “We have Abraham as our father,” is similar to they who say, ‘of course the earth rotates at 1,067 mph, and orbits at 67,000mph, everybody knows that. We have DeGrasse and Dawkins as our father. They told us.’ Really?
But note, there are many, many, many believers who are solid thinkers/engineers/botanists/geologists/PhD’S/biologists/surveyors/doctors/lawyers/landscapers/ on and on, who hold to the fact of a stationary earth, while at the same time, they see other believers as simply unlearned who do not see the same, and still give them the benefit of the doubt as to their sainthood. Intellectual superiority is not a requirement for salvation doncha know. Surely we can give such people the time of day, and perhaps ask questions as to how and why they arrive at such conclusions, but better yet, why and how WE have arrived at our conclusions.
But the scorn. The scorn levelled by they who have not as much as thought a minute of the assumptions they themselves hold, while railing at others who have actually ‘done the math, and examined the evidence,’ is otherworldly. Go ahead, prove it wrong, and in the process you just may learn a thing or two about the talons of tradition and long-held sacred assumptions.
I forcefully say, that I have nothing in common with the ‘science’ of godlessness, evolution, or atheism, and I do so with the blessing of heaven, (since God created science in the first place as a tool to explain His works) and that I will rather believe my own eyes as opposed to the endless theories and mind numbing suggestions and assumptions by they who despise the Creator, as if our earth, where we live, is just another random speck of cosmic serendipity, resulting from an accidental beginning, which makes man no more relevant that a piece of lint. No!
God does not expect a 6-year-old girl to wait until she can be lectured by a godless PhD before she can learn the property of water, or what a compass proves, what a plumb line does, or how to use a carpenter’s level, and what truth these things teach.
Darwins apes need the spinning ball to feed godlessness and irrelevance, for without God, and this will be painful to read, life is but irrelevant. Relevance has context, context has purpose, purpose has design, design has intelligence, intelligence has wisdom and understanding, and these of course come from One source, the Father of lights and only God of eternity.
So to the Christian I ask: why do you fear the stationary earth and cling to DeGrasse and Nyes doctrine of ‘disappearing ships’ as they mock the Creator with their cartoonish explanations and clownish speeches? They promote the idea that the earth is an amusement park that supplies their carnality and frivolousness with passenger airliners flying upside down, trains travelling like topsy-turvy roller coasters, and all other such nonsense.
If you haven’t noticed, fighter pilots navigate spirals, up and down, proving dizziness is not natural, and no sane train engineer would take his freight, boxcars, loads of coal, automobiles, or people round round we go, up and down, over and under. Trains travel on a datum line called horizontal, and the engineers have never even considered the notion of making allowance for supposed ‘curvature.’ This is a fact. This is called science. Most uncomfortable to Copernicus, but not to he with eyes to see, and ears to hear. Railroads singularly demolish any notion of a ‘curved ball.’ Period.
Have you dear believer thought for more than a minute as to whether your world view agrees with God and His word? Not about faith and His word alone, but where you live as expressed in that same word? Have you thought about bullets being fired east and west, north and south, with absolutely no discrepancy in speed or time? Have you thought about planes (key word plane) flying and the havoc caused by moving runways? Have you ever looked at an escalator and the connection with a moving earth? A nice way to spend a Saturday.
Have you thought about the meaning of sea level? Do you know the Suez canal is 100 miles long with no locks but is dead flat from end to end? Are you aware that godless science has no answer for this but God’s word does? Do you know that according to the globeball’s own math, it needs over 1.666 miles of curvature at that canal? It has to be, or it falls apart completely and totally. It does fall apart, as water laughs at the math of the godless.
More importantly, as to God’s throne and heaven, is He and it also careening through ‘space’ aimlessly, or is He and His throne stable, secure, and immovable, as the good book clearly says? What does immovable mean to you if not stationary? What does ‘on earth as it is in heaven mean to you?’
The earth is IN the water, as pure as Genesis and Peter tell us. This earth has foundations, did you know that? An architect when planning his building, does not take into account a moving base, as a foundation supports that which does not move. Can we not see the connection as to the master builder, or does God try to fool us? I think not. He offers us wisdom from above, if we only pay attention to His whispers and not the hisses of Chuck Darwin and his dwarfs DeGrasse and Nye. I’m pretty sure God as builder has not left us in the dark.
(Ps, one of the strongest proofs that my points are valid and worthy of consideration is the mocking hurled at otherwise intelligent people who present such things. If we are incorrect, show me, instead of whisperings of foolishness. There is no other topic that people avoid than the proving of where we live, yet far too many will defend something they never even considered.
But why else is this risky business? Because people so enjoy pointing at others defects, and posts like these will seem like ‘strange fire’ to be sure. I target no one, but if truth is valuable, there is a price to pay if only to be ridiculed. Need I remind you of the vitriol aimed toward Christ Himself who did not one thing wrong, yet whose understanding is infinite?
But do ask yourself if your beliefs about anything have the blessing of heaven, and be honest in asking if what you hold dear is not a constructed image of science falsely so-called.
Finally, I expect certain words that paint my postings as ignorant or infantile as coming from atheists, evolutionists, infidels, or self-made intellectual gluttons, but what say ye, dear believer friend, and/or why are believers soooo reluctant to engage the topic of the ages?)
