DON'T LAUGH TOO LOUD FOR SCIENCE IS CATCHING UP
by Dr. Henderson Ward 9/28/2012 / Christian Living
There is a mindset common to man that whenever one says "I TOLD YOU SO" that it marks him as boastful or patronizing or worse; supercilious, and generally that accusation holds some truth. But not in this case. There are always those who take scientific discoveries to show that the Bible is wrong but when the discovery shows that the Bible is right then the silence is deafening. This simply will not do so let me highlight here how science is merely catching up with the Bible and PROVING it is right just as all believers know it to be.
America's National Aeronautics and Space Administration commonly known as NASA sent a space vehicle on a two year mission to explore the planet Mars. This space vehicle has now landed on the planet and it has sent back its first pictures and the scientists are madly excited because the picture indicate that water IS OR WAS ON THE PLANET. Don't take my word for it here is how the Guardian.co.uk in an article on Friday 28 September 2012 reported it.
Curiosity rover finds evidence of water on Mars
"Nasa's Mars rover, Curiosity, dispatched to learn if the most Earth-like planet in the solar system was suitable for microbial life, has found clear evidence its landing site was once awash in water, a key ingredient for life, scientists said.
Curiosity, a roving chemistry laboratory the size of a small car, touched down on 6 August inside a giant impact basin near the planet's equator. The primary target for the two-year mission is a three-mile-high mound of layered rock rising from the floor of Gale Crater.
Scientists suspect the mound, known as Mount Sharp, is the remains of sediment that once completely filled the crater. Analysis of a slab of rock located between the crater's north rim and the base of Mount Sharp indicate a fast-moving stream of water once flowed there.
Images taken by Curiosity and released on Thursday show rounded stones cemented into the rock, which rises like a piece of jack-hammered sidewalk from the planet's surface.
The stones inside the rock are too big to have been moved by wind, Curiosity scientist Rebecca Williams, with the planetary science institute in Tucson, Arizona, told reporters on a conference call.
"The consensus of the science team is that these are water-transported gravel in a vigorous stream," she said."
Nowhere is the headline referencing to God or the Bible because that is against their agenda. The headlines could so easily, and correctly, be any of the following.
NASA FIND CONFIRMS THE BIBLE
SCIENCE IS PROVING WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS
THE BIBLE SAYS IT AND SCIENCE HAS FOUND IT
Any of those headlines would grab the attention of the world but liberals and those on the left for the most part would never publish anything that shows the Bible to be correct.
I TOLD THEM SO 3 YEARS AGO. Yes in my book ONE MINUTE TO MIDNIGHT ON GOD'S CLOCK, you can check it out at the link below this article, I told them that if they practice TRUE science what they should find on these planets and other planets throughout the universe. In Chapter 2 when dealing with Earth's Temporality I wrote the following. (Pay attention to PHASE 6 especially)
God's Creation Programme
Phase 1: The celestial family was created as supernatural beings endowed with all the appropriate attributes and given their assigned duties and responsibilities and ranked in order to their proximity to the Sanctum Santorum. This list is in descending order of importance with the most important being ranked number one as follows:
Indeterminate Length of Time 1 (ILOT:1)
Phase 2: The universe was created, including Earth, with all laws known and unknown programmed into their structural genetics and all working in perfect order with each other and within their prescribed habitation.
Phase 3: The intergalactic incident. This may be the time when Satan's pride overcame his better judgment and he, along with his fellow coconspirators, were demitted from heaven and may well have triggered events that science falsely labeled the big bang. The Bible described it as "war in heaven," and the battlefield would certainly have included the galaxies. We may well ponder if weapons were used, and if so, what kinds of weapons? TRUE SCIENCE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DETECT BATTLE SCARS THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE.
Phase 4: God had plans for Earth and so undertook restoration of Earth to renew it to what it was before the intergalactic incident. All references in the Bible to God having made man to "replenish the earth" (Genesis 1:28), for example, resonate within this context.
Phase 5: God created light throughout the universe, not the light from radiated entities like the sun or stars but a divine light of observable distinction comparable to and reflective of the dual choices that would later be available to mankind, "I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life that both thou and thy seed may live" (Deuteronomy 30:19b). TRUE SCIENCE SHOULD FIND A LIGHT THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE THAT IS NOT PART OF ANY GALAXY BUT COMMON TO ALL GALAXIES.
Phase 6: God created water (which could have been water vapor) and the firmament, which is the space between the surface of the earth and space (we call this the atmosphere, which consists of the ionosphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, troposphere, etc.) but may have included space itself at one time. TRUE SCIENCE SHOULD FIND WATER IN ONE OF ITS VARIANT FORMS THROUGHOUT OUR SOLAR SYSTEM AND PERHAPS BEYOND.
Phase 7: God created land and seas and set them apart as he deemed necessary.
Phase 8: God created vegetation and this vegetation consisted of all plants that will ever be and each species programmed with its own genetics. TRUE SCIENCE SHOULD FIND THAT THE DNA OF PLANTS HAS A SELF-SACRIFICING MECHANISM THAT ENGENDERS EXTINCTION ONCE THEY HAVE MADE THEIR PRESCRIBED CONTRIBUTION.
Phase 9: From the detritus floating through space God created our solar system, (you may call this the "Patchwork Quilt Hypothesis" in much the same way as Granny would take old discarded clothing and make a patchwork quilt) and put it to work in the service of earth and eventually mankind. TRUE SCIENCE WILL FIND THAT NOT ALL PLANETS IN OUR SOLAR SYSTEM MAKE SENSE, FOR GOD IS NOT SUBJECT TO AND DOES NOT CONSIDER THE LIMITATIONS OF COSMIC REGULARITIES.
Phase 10: God created marine life consisting of varieties of fish and mammals, and to utilize the firmament he created all sorts of flying birds and flying insects and to each and every species was programmed DNA for their propagation and survival. TRUE SCIENCE SHOULD FIND NO CROSSOVER BETWEEN SPECIES BUT ENORMOUS VARIETY WITHIN SPECIES AS BEFITS THEIR DNA.
Phase 11a: God created animals, consisting of mammals and reptiles, carnivores, omnivores, and herbivores and set in motion the laws of conservation of species preventing one species, by any route, from changing into another species. TRUE SCIENCE SHOULD FIND EVIDENCE OF EXTINCT ANIMAL SPECIES AS PRESCRIBED IN THEIR DNA BUT SHOULD NOT FIND ANY EVIDENCE OF SPECIES BARRIER MIGRATION.
Phase 11b: God created man and has been laughing loud and long ever since, not in mirth and gladness but in sorrow and regret: "I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh" (Proverbs 1:26). Man, who is the only species on earth to be created with higher-order thinking, meta-cognition, and spiritual awareness, has been, for the most part, a calamity and has not used his time on earth to cover himself with glory. TRUE SCIENCE WILL FIND THAT AS TIME GOES BY MANKIND WILL SINK DEEPER AND DEEPER INTO DEPRAVITY UNTIL THE VERY ESSENCE OF HIS BEING, HIS HUMANITY, WILL BE A RELIC OF A DISTANT AND UNDISTINGUISHED HISTORY.
This then is our earth as God created it and given its long and adventurous past, we ought to be thankful for its continued habitable existence. Humanity has been served notice, and the clock is ticking. What we have taken for granted for so long and have abused with such mindless regularity will one day come to an end.
So there you have it, when science is agog at these discoveries, just remember that a servant of God not schooled in science but steeped in the Bible told them so long ago.
