The prevalence of cigarette, alcohol, and drug problems in the American population as a whole is quite astounding. As Christians, we are not immune to these problems. Some Christians have jokingly said that coffee, chocolate, and colas (caffeine) are the Christians drug of choice. But alarmingly more and more Christians are turning to much more addictive substances. The nerve-soothing effect of cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs becomes a way of hiding from the emotional or physical distress for many people, including those in the Christian community. Instead of seeking solace in the Word of God and from Christ, they often seek comfort futilely elsewhere. Addiction results from a prolonged use of and too much use of the substance of choice in an attempt to escape the underlying discomforts of life. Some of the effects of these addictions are depression, tolerance, withdrawal…

This Go Fish Ministries publication is a paraphrase of the Old and New Testaments. Its main purpose is to present a simplified version to those who have difficulty understanding more traditional ones, especially children and teens. My inspiration was to give my own children a more understandable, easier to read text, and one that would encourage them and other young people to read the Word of God. Many Biblical versions were considered in the interpretation of this version, in which the starting point was the original King James Version. Other versions considered were the New King James Version, the Good News Bible, the Living Bible…

Pope doesn’t think we should close ourself off within the written word


Francis said would have been “worried and saddened” if there had not been “animated discussions” or if “everyone had been in agreement or silent in a false and acquiescent peace,” the Associated Press reported. He also cautioned against “hostile inflexibility, that is, wanting to close oneself within the written word, and not allowing oneself to be surprised by God.”

Evolution Is Just A Fairy Tale For Adults


The following facts are from an article entitled “44 Reasons Why Evolution Is Just A Fairy Tale For Adults“…

#1 If the theory of evolution was true, we should have discovered millions upon millions of transitional fossils that show the development of one species into another species. Instead, we have zero.

#2 When Charles Darwin came up with his theory, he admitted that no transitional forms had been found at that time, but he believed that huge numbers certainly existed and would eventually be discovered

“Lastly, looking not to any one time, but to all time, if my theory be true, numberless intermediate varieties, linking closely together all the species of the same group, must assuredly have existed. But, as by this theory, innumerable transitional forms must have existed,why do we not find them embedded in countless numbers in the crust of the earth?”

#3 Even some of the most famous evolutionists in the world acknowledge the complete absence of transitional fossils in the fossil record. For example, Dr. Colin Patterson, former senior paleontologist of the British Museum of Natural History and author of “Evolution” once wrote the following

“I fully agree with your comments about the lack of direct illustration of evolutionary transitions in my book. If I knew of any, fossil or living, I would certainly have included them …. I will lay it on the line – there is not one such fossil for which one could make a watertight argument.”

#4 Stephen Jay Gould, Professor of Geology and Paleontology at Harvard University, once wrote the following about the lack of transitional forms…

“The absence of fossil evidence for intermediary stages between major transitions in organic design, indeed our inability, even in our imagination, to construct functional intermediates in many cases, has been a persistent and nagging problem for gradualistic accounts of evolution.”

#5 Evolutionist Stephen M. Stanley of Johns Hopkins University has also commented on the stunning lack of transitional forms in the fossil record…

“In fact, the fossil record does not convincingly document a single transition from one species to another.”

#6 If “evolution” was happening right now, there would be millions of creatures out there with partially developed features and organs.  But instead there are none.

#7 If the theory of evolution was true, we should not see a sudden explosion of fully formed complex life in the fossil record. Instead, that is precisely what we find.

#8 Paleontologist Mark Czarnecki, an evolutionist, once commented on the fact that complex life appears very suddenly in the fossil record…

“A major problem in proving the theory has been the fossil record; the imprints of vanished species preserved in the Earth’s geological formations. This record has never revealed traces of Darwin’s hypothetical intermediate variants – instead species appear and disappear abruptly, and this anomaly has fueled the creationist argument that each species was created by God.”

#9 The sudden appearance of complex life in the fossil record is so undeniable that even Richard Dawkins has been forced to admit it…

“It is as though they [fossils] were just planted there, without any evolutionary history. Needless to say this appearance of sudden planting has delighted creationists. Both schools of thought (Punctuationists and Gradualists) despise so-called scientific creationists equally, and both agree that the major gaps are real, that they are true imperfections in the fossil record. The only alternative explanation of the sudden appearance of so many complex animal types in the Cambrian era is divine creation and both reject this alternative.”

#10 Nobody has ever observed macroevolution take place in the laboratory or in nature.  In other words, nobody has ever observed one kind of creature turn into another kind of creature.  The entire theory of evolution is based on blind faith.

#11 Evolutionist Jeffrey Schwartz, a professor of anthropology at the University of Pittsburgh, openly admits that “the formation of a new species, by any mechanism, has never been observed.

#12 Even evolutionist Stephen J. Gould of Harvard University has admitted that the record shows that species do not change. The following is how he put it during a lecture at Hobart & William Smith College

“Every paleontologist knows that most species don’t change. That’s bothersome….brings terrible distress. ….They may get a little bigger or bumpier but they remain the same species and that’s not due to imperfection and gaps but stasis. And yet this remarkable stasis has generally been ignored as no data. If they don’t change, its not evolution so you don’t talk about it.”

#13 Anyone that believes that the theory of evolution has “scientific origins” is fooling themselves.  It is actually a deeply pagan religious philosophy that can be traced back for thousands of years.

#14 Anything that we dig up that is supposedly more than 250,000 years old should have absolutely no radiocarbon in it whatsoever.  But instead, we find it in everything that we dig up – even dinosaur bones.  This is clear evidence that the “millions of years” theory is simply a bunch of nonsense

It’s long been known that radiocarbon (which should disappear in only a few tens of thousands of years at the most) keeps popping up reliably in samples (like coal, oil, gas, etc.) which are supposed to be ‘millions of years’ old. For instance, CMI has over the years commissioned and funded the radiocarbon testing of a number of wood samples from ‘old’ sites (e.g. with Jurassic fossils, inside Triassic sandstone, burnt by Tertiary basalt) and these were published (by then staff geologist Dr Andrew Snelling) in Creation magazine andJournal of Creation. In each case, with contamination eliminated, the result has been in the thousands of years, i.e. C-14 was present when it ‘shouldn’t have been’. These results encouraged the rest of the RATE team to investigate C-14 further, building on the literature reviews of creationist M.D. Dr Paul Giem.

In another very important paper presented at this year’s ICC, scientists from the RATE group summarized the pertinent facts and presented further experimental data. The bottom line is that virtually all biological specimens, no matter how ‘old’ they are supposed to be, show measurable C-14 levels. This effectively limits the age of all buried biota to less than (at most) 250,000 years.

#15 The odds of even a single sell “assembling itself” by chance are so low that they aren’t even worth talking about.  The following is an excerpt from Jonathan Gray’s book entitled “The Forbidden Secret“…

Even the simplest cell you can conceive of would require no less than 100,000 DNA base pairs and a minimum of about 10,000 amino acids, to form the essential protein chain. Not to mention the other things that would also be necessary for the first cell.

Bear in mind that every single base pair in the DNA chain has to have the same molecular orientation (“left-hand” or “right hand”)? As well as that, virtually all the amino acids must have the opposite orientation. And every one must be without error.

“Now,” explained Larry, “to randomly obtain those correct orientations, do you know your chances? It would be 1 chance in 2110,000, or 1 chance in 1033,113!

“To put it another way, if you attempted a trillion, trillion, trillion combinations every second for 15 billion years, the odds you would achieve all the correct orientations would still only be one chance in a trillion, trillion, trillion, trillion … and the trillions would continue 2755 times!

“It would be like winning more than 4700 state lotteries in a row with a single ticket purchased for each. In other words…impossible.”

#16 How did life learn to reproduce itself?  This is a question that evolutionists do not have an answer for.

#17 In 2007, fishermen caught a very rare creature known as a Coelacanth.  Evolutionists originally told us that this “living fossil” had gone extinct 70 million years ago.  It turns out that they were only off by 70 million years.

#18 According to evolutionists, the Ancient Greenling Damselfly last showed up in the fossil record about 300 million years ago.  But it still exists today.  So why hasn’t it evolved at all over that time frame?

#19 Darwinists believe that the human brain developed without the assistance of any designer.  This is so laughable it is amazing that there are any people out there that still believe this stuff.  The truth is that the human brain is amazingly complex.  The following is how a PBS documentary described the complexity of the human brain: “It contains over 100 billion cells, each with over 50,000 neuron connections to other brain cells.”

#20 The following is how one evolutionist pessimistically assessed the lack of evidence for the evolution of humanity…

“Even with DNA sequence data, we have no direct access to the processes of evolution, so objective reconstruction of the vanished past can be achieved only by creative imagination.”

#21 Perhaps the most famous fossil in the history of the theory of evolution, “Piltdown Man”, turned out to be a giant hoax.

#22 If the neutron were not about 1.001 times the mass of the proton, all protons would have decayed into neutrons or all neutrons would have decayed into protons, and therefore life would not be possible. How can we account for this?

#23 If gravity was stronger or weaker by the slimmest of margins, then life sustaining stars like the sun could not exist. This would also make life impossible. How can we account for this?

#24 Why did evolutionist Dr. Lyall Watson make the following statement?…

“The fossils that decorate our family tree are so scarce that there are still more scientists than specimens. The remarkable fact is that all of the physical evidence we have for human evolution can still be placed, with room to spare, inside a single coffin!”

#25 Apes and humans are very different genetically.  As DarwinConspiracy.com explains, “the human Y chromosome has twice as many genes as the chimpanzee Y chromosome and the chromosome structures are not at all similar.”

#26 How can we explain the creation of new information that is required for one animal to turn into another animal?  No evolutionary process has ever been shown to be able to create new biological information.  One scientist described the incredible amount of new information that would be required to transform microbes into men this way

“The key issue is the type of change required — to change microbes into men requires changes that increase the genetic information content, from over half a million DNA ‘letters’ of even the ‘simplest’ self-reproducing organism to three billion ‘letters’ (stored in each human cell nucleus).”

#27 Evolutionists would have us believe that there are nice, neat fossil layers with older fossils being found in the deepest layers and newer fossils being found in the newest layers.  This simply is not true at all

The fossil layers are not found in the ground in the nice neat clean order that evolutionists illustrate them to be in their textbooks. There is not one place on the surface of the earth where you may dig straight down and pass through the fossil layers in the order shown in the textbooks. The neat order of one layer upon another does not exist in nature. The fossil bearing layers are actually found out of order, upside down (backwards according to evolutionary theory), missing (from where evolutionists would expect them to be) or interlaced (“younger” and “older” layers found in repeating sequences). “Out of place” fossils are the rule and not the exception throughout the fossil record.

#28 Evolutionists believe that the ancestors of birds developed hollow bones over thousands of generations so that they would eventually be light enough to fly.  This makes absolutely no sense and is beyond ridiculous.

#29 If dinosaurs really are tens of millions of years old, why have scientists found dinosaur bones with soft tissue still in them?  The following is from an NBC News report about one of these discoveries…

For more than a century, the study of dinosaurs has been limited to fossilized bones. Now, researchers have recovered 70 million-year-old soft tissue, including what may be blood vessels and cells, from a Tyrannosaurus rex.

#30 Which evolved first: blood, the heart, or the blood vessels for the blood to travel through?

#31 Which evolved first: the mouth, the stomach, the digestive fluids, or the ability to poop?

#32 Which evolved first: the windpipe, the lungs, or the ability of the body to use oxygen?

#33 Which evolved first: the bones, ligaments, tendons, blood supply, or the muscles to move the bones?

#34 In order for blood to clot, more than 20 complex steps need to successfully be completed. How in the world did that process possibly evolve?

#35 DNA is so incredibly complex that it is absolutely absurd to suggest that such a language system could have “evolved” all by itself by accident…

When it comes to storing massive amounts of information, nothing comes close to the efficiency of DNA. A single strand of DNA is thousands of times thinner than a strand of human hair. One pinhead of DNA could hold enough information to fill a stack of books stretching from the earth to the moon 500 times.

Although DNA is wound into tight coils, your cells can quickly access, copy, and translate the information stored in DNA. DNA even has a built-in proofreader and spell-checker that ensure precise copying. Only about one mistake slips through for every 10 billion nucleotides that are copied.

#36 Can you solve the following riddle by Perry Marshall?…

1) DNA is not merely a molecule with a pattern; it is a code, a language, and an information storage mechanism.

2) All codes are created by a conscious mind; there is no natural process known to science that creates coded information.

3) Therefore DNA was designed by a mind.

If you can provide an empirical example of a code or language that occurs naturally, you’ve toppled my proof. All you need is one.

#37 Evolutionists simply cannot explain why our planet is so perfectly suited to support life.

#38 Shells from living snails have been “carbon dated” to be 27,000 years old.

#39 If humans have been around for so long, where are all of the bones and all of the graves?  The following is an excerpt from an article by Don Batten

Evolutionists also claim there was a ‘Stone Age’ of about 100,000 years when between one million and 10 million people lived on Earth. Fossil evidence shows that people buried their dead, often with artefacts—cremation was not practised until relatively recent times (in evolutionary thinking). If there were just one million people alive during that time, with an average generation time of 25 years, they should have buried 4 billion bodies, and many artefacts. If there were 10 million people, it would mean 40 billion bodies buried in the earth. If the evolutionary timescale were correct, then we would expect the skeletons of the buried bodies to be largely still present after 100,000 years, because many ordinary bones claimed to be much older have been found. However, even if the bodies had disintegrated, lots of artefacts should still be found.

#40 Evolutionists claim that just because it looks like we were designed that does not mean that we actually were.  They often speak of the “illusion of design”, but that is kind of like saying that it is an “illusion” that a 747 airplane or an Apple iPhone were designed.  And of course the human body is far more complex that a 747 or an iPhone.

#41 If you want to be part of the “scientific community” today, you must accept the theory of evolution no matter how absurd it may seem to you.  Richard Lewontin of Harvard once made the following comment regarding this harsh reality…

We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, . . . in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated commitment to materialism. . . . we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counterintuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.

#42 Time Magazine once made the following statement about the lack of evidence for the theory of evolution…

“Yet despite more than a century of digging, the fossil record remains maddeningly sparse. With so few clues, even a single bone that doesn’t fit into the picture can upset everything. Virtually every major discovery has put deep cracks in the conventional wisdom and forced scientists to concoct new theories, amid furious debate.”

#43 Malcolm Muggeridge, the world famous journalist and philosopher, once made the following statement about the absurdity of the theory of evolution…

“I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it’s been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books of the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has.”

#44 In order to believe the theory of evolution, you must have enough blind faith to believe that life just popped into existence from nonlife, and that such life just happened to have the ability to take in the nourishment it needed, to expel waste, and to reproduce itself, all the while having everything it needed to survive in the environment in which it suddenly found itself. Do you have that much blind faith?

So what do you believe?

Homosexuality, Evolution, and Aliens, OH MY!


The Pope’s Embrace Of Evolution Brings Us One Step Closer To A One World Religion

Posted: 28 Oct 2014 05:37 PM PDT

Pope Francis - Photo by Alfredo BorbaIf you wanted to create a religion that almost everyone would love, how would you do it?  Perhaps you would change your faith to make it more appealing to a modern world that is changing at blinding speed.  Perhaps you would indicate that you are willing to become more “mainstream” on hot button issues such as gay rights.  Perhaps you would invite leaders of other religions from all over the planet to come visit you and make it clear that you consider all of those religions to be valid as well.  And all of that “unscientific stuff” about God creating the world in six days and creating mankind out of the dust of the Earth?  Well, all of that is just going to have to be thrown out.  If all of this sounds vaguely familiar to you, that is because this is exactly what Pope Francis has been doing.

To say that Pope Francis is an extremely popular pontiff would be a massive understatement.  He was showered with praise by media outlets all over the globe when he responded to a question about homosexuality with the following phrase: “Who am I to judge?”  From the earliest days of his papacy, he has been visited by an endless stream of religious dignitaries from all over the planet, and they all seem to have nothing but good things to say about him.  At this point, even most Muslims seem to love this Pope.  Earlier this year, Pope Francis took the unprecedented step of authorizing “Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran” at the Vatican for the first time ever.  This Pope seems to have a sixth sense for making the right public relations moves, and he appears to be destined to become one of the most loved popes ever.

This week, Pope Francis is making headlines all over the world for publicly embracing the Big Bang and the theory of evolution.  The following are some of the Pope’s statements that are popping up in newspapers worldwide

-“When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so.”

-“The Big Bang, which today we hold to be the origin of the world, does not contradict the intervention of the divine creator but, rather, requires it.”

-“Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve.”

And not only has the Catholic Church eagerly embraced these theories, there are also several prominent Catholic theologians that are now fully condemning the idea of a “young Earth” and the idea that God created man in a single day.

In fact, the head of the Vatican Observatory says that such notions are “almost blasphemous theology”

As previously reported, earlier this month, Guy Consolmagno with the Vatican Observatory told Australia’s Fairfax Media that young earth creation beliefs are nearly tantamount to blasphemy.

“It’s almost blasphemous theology,” Consolmagno alleged, according to the Brisbane Times. “It’s certainly not the tradition of Catholicism and never has been and it misunderstands what the Bible is and it misunderstands what science is.”

Really?

Consolmagno is quite an interesting character.  He also says that he is looking forward to the day when extraterrestrials show up, and he would be quite willing to baptize them if that is what they want…

Consolmagno, who is the keeper of the Pope’s meteorite collection, said he would be happy to baptize extraterrestrial creatures if they wanted the blessing. He added the presence of extraterrestrial life, “does not disprove the existence of God”.

Instead, the discovery of “tentacled horrors from the void” should lead people to question what being human means. “When we say human, human as compared to what?” he asked.

In a 2010 statement, Consolmagno said that “all entities – despite how many tentacles they might have – have a soul”.

In the booklet, Consolmagno tries also to answer important questions, such as, “Should the Church send out missionaries to alien planets?”, “What’s going to happen when the world ends?” and “Do extraterrestrials have their own version of Jesus?”

Right now, the Catholic Church is experiencing a resurgence in popularity.

The changes that this new Pope is making seem to be drawing in lots of new people.

But there is one group that Pope Francis does not seem to care for very much at all, and that is Christian fundamentalists.  It is not just creation that he disagrees with them about.  He disagrees with them about a whole host of issues, and he says that there is not any room for “fundamentalism” in Christianity…

Following his first visit to the Middle East as pope last month, the pontiff criticized fundamentalism in Christianity, Islam and Judaism as a form of violence.

“A fundamentalist group, even if it kills no one, even it strikes no one, is violent. The mental structure of fundamentalism is violence in the name of God.”

But precisely what is “fundamentalism”?

The following is the definition that you get when you do a Google search…

“a form of a religion, especially Islam or Protestant Christianity, that upholds belief in the strict, literal interpretation of scripture.”

So does the Pope actually have a problem with people that believe that the Bible is literally true?

Perhaps someone should ask him that question.

And it is obvious that the Pope does not believe what the Bible literally says about how the world was created and about how humanity came to be.

Of course most people these days would agree with the Pope, but what does the science actually tell us?

When people debate these issues the attitude of most evolutionists seems to be that everybody else believes in Darwinism so you better believe it too.

But that doesn’t work for me.

As an attorney, I am always looking for the evidence.  And I have been searching for good evidence for the theory of evolution for decades.  But I haven’t been able to find any.  I have investigated these matters very carefully, and I have concluded that the scientific evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of those that argue that God created this world.

I have published these points before, but I think that they bear repeating.  The following facts are from my previous article entitled “44 Reasons Why Evolution Is Just A Fairy Tale For Adults“…

#1 If the theory of evolution was true, we should have discovered millions upon millions of transitional fossils that show the development of one species into another species. Instead, we have zero.

#22 If the neutron were not about 1.001 times the mass of the proton, all protons would have decayed into neutrons or all neutrons would have decayed into protons, and therefore life would not be possible. How can we account for this?

#23 If gravity was stronger or weaker by the slimmest of margins, then life sustaining stars like the sun could not exist. This would also make life impossible. How can we account for this?

#24 Why did evolutionist Dr. Lyall Watson make the following statement?…

“The fossils that decorate our family tree are so scarce that there are still more scientists than specimens. The remarkable fact is that all of the physical evidence we have for human evolution can still be placed, with room to spare, inside a single coffin!”

#25 Apes and humans are very different genetically.  As DarwinConspiracy.com explains, “the human Y chromosome has twice as many genes as the chimpanzee Y chromosome and the chromosome structures are not at all similar.”

#26 How can we explain the creation of new information that is required for one animal to turn into another animal?  No evolutionary process has ever been shown to be able to create new biological information.  One scientist described the incredible amount of new information that would be required to transform microbes into men this way

“The key issue is the type of change required — to change microbes into men requires changes that increase the genetic information content, from over half a million DNA ‘letters’ of even the ‘simplest’ self-reproducing organism to three billion ‘letters’ (stored in each human cell nucleus).”

#27 Evolutionists would have us believe that there are nice, neat fossil layers with older fossils being found in the deepest layers and newer fossils being found in the newest layers.  This simply is not true at all

The fossil layers are not found in the ground in the nice neat clean order that evolutionists illustrate them to be in their textbooks. There is not one place on the surface of the earth where you may dig straight down and pass through the fossil layers in the order shown in the textbooks. The neat order of one layer upon another does not exist in nature. The fossil bearing layers are actually found out of order, upside down (backwards according to evolutionary theory), missing (from where evolutionists would expect them to be) or interlaced (“younger” and “older” layers found in repeating sequences). “Out of place” fossils are the rule and not the exception throughout the fossil record.

#28 Evolutionists believe that the ancestors of birds developed hollow bones over thousands of generations so that they would eventually be light enough to fly.  This makes absolutely no sense and is beyond ridiculous.

#29 If dinosaurs really are tens of millions of years old, why have scientists found dinosaur bones with soft tissue still in them?  The following is from an NBC News report about one of these discoveries…

For more than a century, the study of dinosaurs has been limited to fossilized bones. Now, researchers have recovered 70 million-year-old soft tissue, including what may be blood vessels and cells, from a Tyrannosaurus rex.

#30 Which evolved first: blood, the heart, or the blood vessels for the blood to travel through?

#31 Which evolved first: the mouth, the stomach, the digestive fluids, or the ability to poop?

#32 Which evolved first: the windpipe, the lungs, or the ability of the body to use oxygen?

#33 Which evolved first: the bones, ligaments, tendons, blood supply, or the muscles to move the bones?

#34 In order for blood to clot, more than 20 complex steps need to successfully be completed. How in the world did that process possibly evolve?

#35 DNA is so incredibly complex that it is absolutely absurd to suggest that such a language system could have “evolved” all by itself by accident…

When it comes to storing massive amounts of information, nothing comes close to the efficiency of DNA. A single strand of DNA is thousands of times thinner than a strand of human hair. One pinhead of DNA could hold enough information to fill a stack of books stretching from the earth to the moon 500 times.

Although DNA is wound into tight coils, your cells can quickly access, copy, and translate the information stored in DNA. DNA even has a built-in proofreader and spell-checker that ensure precise copying. Only about one mistake slips through for every 10 billion nucleotides that are copied.

#36 Can you solve the following riddle by Perry Marshall?…

1) DNA is not merely a molecule with a pattern; it is a code, a language, and an information storage mechanism.

2) All codes are created by a conscious mind; there is no natural process known to science that creates coded information.

3) Therefore DNA was designed by a mind.

If you can provide an empirical example of a code or language that occurs naturally, you’ve toppled my proof. All you need is one.

#37 Evolutionists simply cannot explain why our planet is so perfectly suited to support life.

#38 Shells from living snails have been “carbon dated” to be 27,000 years old.

#39 If humans have been around for so long, where are all of the bones and all of the graves?  The following is an excerpt from an article by Don Batten

Evolutionists also claim there was a ‘Stone Age’ of about 100,000 years when between one million and 10 million people lived on Earth. Fossil evidence shows that people buried their dead, often with artefacts—cremation was not practised until relatively recent times (in evolutionary thinking). If there were just one million people alive during that time, with an average generation time of 25 years, they should have buried 4 billion bodies, and many artefacts. If there were 10 million people, it would mean 40 billion bodies buried in the earth. If the evolutionary timescale were correct, then we would expect the skeletons of the buried bodies to be largely still present after 100,000 years, because many ordinary bones claimed to be much older have been found. However, even if the bodies had disintegrated, lots of artefacts should still be found.

#40 Evolutionists claim that just because it looks like we were designed that does not mean that we actually were.  They often speak of the “illusion of design”, but that is kind of like saying that it is an “illusion” that a 747 airplane or an Apple iPhone were designed.  And of course the human body is far more complex that a 747 or an iPhone.

#41 If you want to be part of the “scientific community” today, you must accept the theory of evolution no matter how absurd it may seem to you.  Richard Lewontin of Harvard once made the following comment regarding this harsh reality…

We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, . . . in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated commitment to materialism. . . . we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counterintuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.

#42 Time Magazine once made the following statement about the lack of evidence for the theory of evolution…

“Yet despite more than a century of digging, the fossil record remains maddeningly sparse. With so few clues, even a single bone that doesn’t fit into the picture can upset everything. Virtually every major discovery has put deep cracks in the conventional wisdom and forced scientists to concoct new theories, amid furious debate.”

#43 Malcolm Muggeridge, the world famous journalist and philosopher, once made the following statement about the absurdity of the theory of evolution…

“I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it’s been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books of the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has.”

#44 In order to believe the theory of evolution, you must have enough blind faith to believe that life just popped into existence from nonlife, and that such life just happened to have the ability to take in the nourishment it needed, to expel waste, and to reproduce itself, all the while having everything it needed to survive in the environment in which it suddenly found itself. Do you have that much blind faith?

So what do you believe?

In the last several years since the supposed apocalypse according to the Mayan calendar, it seems as if the whole world has gone completely mad. So what really happened in December of 2012? Some have claimed that the school shooting at Newtown, was a “child sacrifice” of sorts to pacify the gods that they believed would have destroyed us. Note that gods with a little g is not Yahweh, the Almighty God, but demonic false gods who would demand such a sacrifice. Since that time we have seen the Boston Bombing massacre, multiple attempts at other terrorist acts, numerous multiple murders, horrible rapes of women and children, natural disasters, and supposed industrial accidents probably due to human error and neglect all over the world!

In addition to these we have more recently seen the ebola epidemic explode, another war in Israel with Hamas, and the extremist ISIS Muslims beheading and murdering Christians and others because of their radical ideology. ISIS’ stated goal is to restore the “caliphate”, an Islamic state under the rule of a community of religious scholars guided by a supreme leader, the caliph, which is generally taken to mean the successor to the False Prophet Muhammad. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State, is calling himself “Caliph Ibrahim” so could he possibly be the antichrist? It will have to wait to be seen.

Is Bible Prophecy Relevant?


1 Thessalonians 5:1-4: “Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers,you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief.”

The Blood Moons, America, Israel, and the Jews


The Blood Moons, America, Israel, and the Jews

Blood moons are known to Hebrew scholars as a warning to Israel and its people of coming war or other trouble affecting them. We have just experienced the second blood moon in the tetrad of four on Oct. 8, 2014. The first one occurred April 15, 2014. Shortly after that first one we saw the peace talks between Israel and Gaza fall through and a war between Israel and Hamas begin. We also witnessed the rise of ISIS with its terrormongers beheading Jews, Christians, and others in their path of destruction. Since we have witnessed such events take place after the first blood moon, I think we can expect more of the same kinds of events soon after the second. Just in the last couple of weeks since the second one, here in America we have seen the stock market plunge by several hundred points, we have seen the first two ebola cases in America, and we have seen ISIS terrorists continue their murderous border rampage in the Middle East, slaughtering hundreds in Kobane and taking Baghdad. And there are still two more to come next year.  What terrors will they bring to an unrepentant nation and the rest of the world.

Some are questioning whether or not the blood moons are really a sign from God to warn us of things to come because this tetrad group won’t be seen from Israel except for the last one. But I think what they don’t understand is that the blood moons are for the Jewish people wherever they are in the world. The second largest population of Jews is right here in North America. This tetrad can been seen over a large portion of North America, so I believe this set is a warning for American Jews, not necessarily the state of Israel, except maybe where their paths cross. I believe the warning applies to those who can see it where they are. America is in its path and its blood will pour.

I believe God may be warning Jews in America to go back to their homeland in Israel before things get really bad here in the US. Jews are returning to Israel by the thousands every year, but many have decided to come to the US instead for financial reasons. I believe that they must return to Israel before the final days of the tribulation comes, and before the Messiah, Jesus Christ returns to earth. I think if they are searching for financial security here in the US, then God may have to take that away from them in order for them to see the need to return to Israel. Only when they have no future here will they fully return to Israel, where end time events will take place.

I believe America will experience an economic collapse in this upcoming Shemitah year, as happened in 2001 and 2008, only much worse this time. It’s already begun just in the first two weeks of the Shemitah year and will get worse as the year progresses. The one world monetary system cannot come into play as long as the American dollar still runs the world. I believe the American dollar must fall and America must cease to be a significant world power for some of the end time events to take place. I believe that will happen soon. I think when that does happen most of the Jews who came here for economic stability will loose faith in the US and return to Israel, if they haven’t already. I think God will do whatever it takes to get His people to return to their national homeland, as many have already done and many are continuing to do.

The upcoming solar eclipse in 2015 is a warning to all the nations of the world, according to Jewish Scholars. I believe it will signal the economic collapse of America and the downfall of the nations dependent on the American dollar. When that happens, I expect the one world monetary system will not be far off and with it the rule of the Antichrist. The last days are upon us and we need to be watching these events as they transpire and be ready for whatever happens. I don’t believe the rapture will necessarily take place before some of these end time events happen. I believe the antichrist must be revealed before the rapture takes place as related in I and II Thessalonians. I do believe it will take place before the final days of God’s wrath at the end of the Tribulation period. We will be protected from God’s wrath, though not from the wrath of the antichrist and his followers.

Be followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, and has died for us as an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling scent. And don’t let any sexual sin, or any evil thing, or greed, be named among you, as Christians shouldn’t live this way; nor immorality, nor stupid talking, nor joking around, which aren’t right to do; but instead give thanks. You should know that no sexually immoral or evil person, nor a selfish person, or someone who worships falsely, has any part in the realm of Yeshua the Christ and of Yahweh God. Don’t let anyone mislead you with meaningless words, for because of this, the rage of God is on those who refuse to be under God’s control. So don’t take part in it along with them. You once lived in darkness, but…

On The Trail of the Nephilim II – Sample Chapter!


Originally posted on L.A. Marzulli's Blog:

Is this photo proof of the Nephilim?

Catalina!

I am releasing this chapter from On the Trail of the Nephilim II, because of an incident which involves a major Television Network.  Several months ago I foolishly sent a photograph of what I found on Catalina Island to another researcher.

I had never met this individual but had talked to him over the phone several times.  In short I trusted him.  Unbeknownst to me at the time, was this individual had a contractual agreement with a production company to produce a series of shows on giants.

Armed with knowing the picture existed the production team then flew him out Catalina Island, so he could see it for himself.

While the picture that I discovered in the archives is not my property, the research and discovery of what turns out to be an 8.5 footer is.  There were also other discoveries…

Showers of Blessings  

2/1/2012

I woke this morning to the rain on the roof

As I wait for Your showers of blessings

I rested in Your grace and didn’t want to move

As I thought about my many testings

How many times did You find nothing but dross?

I wonder if I ever shined like gold

How many things have I counted but loss?

How much of my heart do I still hold?

I hear the pitter-patter on the roof of my heart

Some drops of sorrow and others drops of joy

But from my Savior’s love I’ll never depart

And none of Satan’s wiles can destroy

Though storms may rage till there’s nothing left

And what I see is life’s wreckage and debris

And I know that whatever Satan takes by theft

He must restore seven times back to me

So Lord, don’t let the storm winds my…

Writing on the Wall: WOW Campaign


Writing on the Wall: WOW Campaign

 

I just read an article about a group of girls who had been raped on a college campus at various times and because the administrators on the campus refused to expel their rapists someone took matters into their own hands and wrote the names of the rapists on the bathroom wall.  The girls said that it was not one of them that wrote the names, but in any case, the rapists were made known to other women on campus, which likely made them aware that they needed to be extra vigilant around those particular young men.  It may have even kept other young women from becoming the next victim.  This article got me to thinking, what if every victim of rape, child sexual abuse, or domestic violence took to writing on a wall the names of their abusers to warn other women.  This could have a great impact on our society which is notorious for covering up these types of scandals and crimes.  Other women and children would be warned, and the abused victim would stay anonymous if she so desired.  Many women are scared to report their victimization to authorities, which often allows the perpetrator to attack more victims.  This is not about getting revenge, but exposing these kinds of evil so that others may be warned; those who would be victims, so they may keep themselves safe; and those who would be abusers, so they may know that their sins will find them out.

 

 

While I was thinking on this, I was reminded of the Bible verse in Daniel, chapter 5 that tells of a hand from God writing on a wall in judgment against a wicked man.  That verse states, you are weighed in the balances, and are found wanting.” This is what I believe God would say to those men who abuse women and children in the most horrendous displays of evil.  The article also made me think of another verse in Matthew 10:26 which states, “So don’t be afraid of them because there isn’t anything covered, that won’t be uncovered; and secret, that won’t become known.” And another verse in Ephesians 5:11 which states, “So don’t have anything to do with the meaningless actions of darkness, but instead expose them for what they are. It’s a shame even to speak of what’s done by them in secret, but everything that is disapproved of is made clear when it’s brought to light and whatever makes it clear is light.” 

 

In light of these verses, I am calling on every victim of rape, child sexual abuse, or domestic violence to expose their abusers by writing their names on a wall where others may be warned of their evil deeds.  Bathroom walls have been used as billboards to use, misuse, and abuse women and children for as long as I can remember.  I say lets take back the walls and use them for a greater purpose than to call someone a slut or other such derogatory terms as have been used against women in the past.  All it takes is a little courage and a permanent marker in your purse.  If you feel it’s not right to use a wall for courageous graffiti then use sticky notes and write on it. In recognition of Awareness of Domestic Violence month I would like to begin this campaign October 1, 2014.  Please share this on all your social networking sites and spread the word.

 

Put your declaration in a relevant place where others may be warned, where you know your abuser frequents.  Whether it’s an educational campus, a church or religious institution, or a public business, then put them in the bathrooms and on bulletin boards or other relevant places.  Whether your abuser is a teacher, a peer, a religious leader or lay person, a business man or your boss, a boyfriend, or husband, he needs to be exposed if he is a danger to you or to anyone else.  If your abuser may figure out who you are, then you may get someone else to write it for you, so your abuser won’t recognize your handwriting.  If you post it yourself, make sure you are not seen be your abuser, who may try to further harm you.  In cases where there is only one known victim such as domestic violence, who would surely be known to the abuser, make sure you are in a safe place or let someone else post it for you.  Charges should be filed with local law enforcement agencies where applicable, if you or someone else is likely to be hurt again.  Please note the WOW campaign at the end of the statement which means Warn other women to the ladies and Writing on the Wall to the abusers.  Please don’t abuse this campaign by making false statements.  God said, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” and will not hold you guiltless if you do.

 

 

My suggested statements are simply:

So and so is a rapist, WOW!

So and so is a child sex abuser, WOW!

So and so is a domestic partner abuser, WOW!

 

Since more than a third of all women are raped or abused sexually or physically, I hope to see these WOW statements spread like wildfire.  Secrets keep the power in the hands of the abusers while exposing the secrets puts power back in the survivors’ hands, and will likely save many other women and children from being victimized by those abusers.  Most abusers have more than one victim, some have many victims.  So be courageous and Write on a wall!

NFL and Domestic Violence


NFL and Domestic Violence

I just recently read a news article about a National Football League Ravens player, running back Ray Rice, who was caught on a Casino camera dragging his unconscious wife off an elevator, who he had apparently beaten. The football player was punished by not being allowed to play in only two games, comparable to the punishment of another player for safety violations in a game. It also gave a comparison with the punishment of a player who had been cited for his use of marijuana who was not allowed to play for a whole season. I find it appalling that a player who beats his wife would receive the same punishment as a player who made a safety violation in a football game and has been punished much less than one who uses marijuana. U.S. senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy of Connecticut and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin sent a letter to commissioner Roger Goodell, decrying the leniency of Rice’s punishment.

Domestic violence punishments are apparently left to the discretion of the commissioner, who defended Rice saying that it was his first offense. What Goodell needs to understand is that it was the first time Rice was caught, not necessarily his first offense. Most women do not report a first incident. There are usually several before any incidents are reported. As a victim myself, I know this all too well. As a survivor of domestic violence, I would say to commissioner Goodell, Domestic violence is real life, it’s not a game! Though safety violations and marijuana use are both highly irresponsible behaviors, domestic violence is a much more serious crime that hurts, disfigures, and murders many women at the hands of the perpetrators. In addition to the leniency of the Rice incident, the NFL has also completely overlooked the punishment of Carolina Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy who attacked his ex-girlfriend in May 2013 and is awaiting trial. The article I read went on to tell that 77 players had been cited in 85 domestic violence incidents over the last few years. Only six of those players were actually cut from their teams. I guess they believe the value of their players are worth more to them than the value of the women they harm.  That the NFL commissioner Goodell doesn’t see fit to acknowledge the seriousness of the crime of domestic violence and who downplays it to this degree is unfathomable in this day and age.

The NFL and its players are set up as examples to our young men growing up and when this type of behavior is tolerated by a professional organization of renown such as the NFL, what does it say to our young men about how they can treat their wives and girlfriends? It tells them that domestic violence is tolerated to a degree and that it is really not that important to qualify a serious consequence. What the NFL needs to tell the young men that they have such great influence over is that they, as a professional organization, will not on any level tolerate their players committing acts of domestic violence against the women they have relationships with and that those who commit these heinous crimes will be punished appropriately.

But as apparently the NFL has a low standard where domestic violence is concerned and they seem to be willing to tolerate this type of behaviors from their players, I propose we hit them where it hurts (pun intended), in their wallets. I propose that anyone who believes domestic violence is wrong in any degree and should be punished appropriately boycott future NFL games and refuse to support this Neanderthal type of attitude from those men who have such great influence on the hearts and minds of our young men. The Gov. of Maine has called for a boycott of the football league and I believe we should stand with him on this deadly important issue. And by default, anyone who shows up at their games has become complicit in their toleration of this real war against women, domestic violence!

What does the Koran say About Jesus?


What does the Koran say About Jesus?

 

Peace be upon you! I have been reading about Jesus in the Koran and have found some interesting things said about Jesus.

 

Surah al-Imram 3:42-55

 

42 And when the angels said: O Mary, Surely Allah (God) has chosen you above the women of the world.  43 O Mary, be obedient to your Lord (Yahweh) and humble yourself, and bow down with those who worship.  44 This is of the announcements relating to the unseen (Spirit) which We reveal to you; and you were not with them when they cast their pens to decide which of them should have you (Mary) in his charge, and you were not with them when they contended with one another.

 

Isa (Jesus) is the Chosen One, born of a virgin. Isa is holy. 

 

45 When the angels said: O Mary, surely Allah (God) gives you good news with a Word from Him of One whose name is the Messaih (Christ), Isa (Jesus), son of Mary, who is worthy of respect in this world, and the hereafter and of those who come near to Allah (God); 46 and he shall speak to the people from birth to death, and he shall be one of the good ones. 47 She said: My Lord (Yahweh)! When shall a son be born to me, since a man has not touched me? He said: Even so, Allah (God) creates what He pleases; when He has spoken of a matter, He only says to it, Be, and it is.

 

The Scriptures of the Bible are approved, Isa (Jesus) has power over death.

 

48 And God will teach (Isa, Jesus) the Book and the Wisdom (Old Testament) and the Taurat (Torah) and the Injil (New Testament). 49 And make (Isa, Jesus) an apostle to the people of Israel: That I have come to you with a sign from your Lord (Yahweh), that I choose for you out of the dust like the form of a dove, then I breathe into it and it becomes a dove with Allah’s (God’s) permission and I(Isa, Jesus) heal the blind, and the leprous, and bring the dead to life with Allah’s (God’s) permission and I inform you of what you should eat and what you should store in your houses; most surely there is a sign in this for you, if you are believers.   50 And a verifier of that which came before me in the Taurat (Torah) and that I may allow you part of that which has been forbidden you, and I have come to you with a sign from your Lord (Yahweh) so be careful of your duty to Allah (God) and obey me. 51 Surely Allah (God) is my Lord (Yahweh) and your Lord (Yahweh), so serve God, this is the right path.

 

Isa (Jesus) is the way to Heaven (Eternal Life). 

 

52 But when Isa (Jesus) perceived unbelief on their part, He said, Who will be my helpers in Allah’s (God’s) way? The disciples said, We are helpers in the way of Allah (God); We believe in Allah (God) and bear witness that we are submitting ones (followers, in Arabic-Muslims). 53 Our Lord (Yahweh) we believe in what You have revealed and we follow You, so write us down with those who bear witness.  54 And they (the Jews) plotted, but Allah (God) is the best of Planners. 55 And when Allah (God) said: O Isa (Jesus) I am going bring to an end (in death) Your days on earth and cause You to ascend ( bring to life again, resurrection) unto ME and purify You of those who disbelieve and make Your followers (Christians, Isahi Muslim, Muslims who follow Jesus) above those who refuse to believe (in Isa, Jesus) to the day of resurrection; then You shall return to Me and I will decide between You concerning that in which You differed (with them).

 

This passage plainly describes the miraculous birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and states that God will judge between those who believe in Jesus and those who don’t. It also states that those who believe in Jesus will be put above those who don’t, which is historically accurate.  In 50 Isa said that His life verifies what the prophets had spoken of concerning Him in the earlier Scriptures (The Old and New Testaments written before the Koran.) In light of this passage Muslims need to acknowledge the truth of the Bible and study it to find eternal life in Christ Jesus.  Christians should pray for the Isahi Muslims who seek to follow Jesus and pray for Muslims to have Isa dreams as many are now having.  Many have seen visions of a prophet in a flowing white robe and white hair.  This fits the description of Jesus on the Mount of transfiguration in Mathew 17:2  and also in Revelation 1:12-14 which describes Jesus as having a flowing white robe and hair as white as wool.  As I myself have had Isa dreams where I have seen Jesus, I know how powerfully these dreams can change a heart and life.  May the peace of Christ Jesus be on you all!

Why The Earthquake Near San Francisco May Just Be The Start Of A Whole Lot Of Shaking


And there will be earthquakes in diverse places…The average rate of big earthquakes — those larger than magnitude 7 — has been 10 per year since 1979, the study reports. That rate rose to 12.5 per year starting in 1992, and then jumped to 16.7 per year starting in 2010 — a 65 percent increase compared to the rate since 1979. This increase accelerated in the first three months of 2014 to more than double the average since 1979, the researchers report.

Isaiah 9:10 Linked With 9/11 – In 1985!.

Long before Cahn penned “The Harbinger” or gave his first teaching on the connections he found between Sept. 11 and Isaiah 9:10, the editors of “The One-Year Bible,” which has 365 days of Scripture readings, decided to include that verse in the Sept. 11 reading.
