  4. Background: My Trip to Sault Ste. Marie, MI My Watch Said: 8:10 AM My Watch Said: 12:30 PM I still have to go Rt. 23 Leaving Ann Arbor Enter Rt. 23 North Mackinaw City A Brief Review of July 13, 2005: How long was I driving? = 12:30 – 8:10 = 4 hours and 20 minutes I conclude: I was alive and driving for 4 hours and 20 minutes

  5. My Life Journey On This Earth The Science Said: Earth was 4.6 Billion Years Old The Science Said: Earth was 3.4 Billion Years Old I still have to live I Became An Indian Citizen 1947 I Became A US Citizen 1976 A Brief Review of July 13, 2005: What can I deduce?

  6. My Life Journey On This Earth The Science Said: Earth was 4.6 Billion Years Old The Science Said: Earth was 3.4 Billion Years Old I still have to live I Became An Indian Citizen 1947 I Became A US Citizen 1976 A Brief Review of July 13, 2005: I Deduce The Following From These Facts: How long was I living = 4.6 – 3.4 = 1.2 Billion Years I conclude: I am over 1.2 billion years old.

  30. This is a note for the next two slides: You are to stare at the ‘white spot’ at the center of the slide for about 30 seconds. Try not to blink. After that click for the next slide and keep on staring at the slide and see what is not there. If you see a U.S. flag, then you can be sure about the correctness of the saying, “Seeing is believing,” (SIB), or the demand, “Prove it to me’ (PITM).

  32. Oh! What Do We See? The Flag Is Still Here!!!

  33. Star-X At least 2 light years -- 4 years is the distance of the next star to us, except the Sun. Earth God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) Speed of light = 186,000 Miles/Sec. A Light Year = The distance traveled by light in one year = 365 x 24 x 60 x 60 x 186,000 miles The Sun is about eight minutes away from the earth = 8 x 60 x 186,000 miles The nearest star is over two (2) Light Years from the earth.

  34. Star-1 8 light years Earth God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) • Look Around: • The Beauty • The Variety } Of the motions of Stars Psalms 33:9 “For he spoke, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.” Psalms 148:6 “And he established them for ever and ever; he made [for them] a statute which shall not pass.”

  35. Look Around: • The Beauty • The Variety } Of the motions of Stars Star-1 2 light years Star-2 6 light years Earth God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) Psalms 8:3 “When I see your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast established.”

  36. Note for the next two slides: When we see the Stars 1 & 2 as colliding each other, they are far away in different directions. One is six light years and the other four light years. But it appears to us as occupying the same space. The Babylonian science, Astrology, is based on such faulty observations. Therefore, the Children of Israel were told not to give any attention to such sciences. We read about it as ‘Science falsely called.’

  37. Look Around: • The Beauty • The Variety } Of the motions of Stars Star-1 2 light years Star-2 6 light years Earth God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) Psalms 19:1,3 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse shows the work of his hands…There is no speech and there are no words, yet their voice is heard.”

  38. Look Around: • The Beauty • The Variety } Of the motions of Stars Star-1 2 light years Star-2 6 light years Earth God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) Isaiah 47:13 “You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels. Let now the interpreters of the heavens, the observers of the stars, who predict according to the new moons what shall come upon thee, stand up, and save you.”

  39. The Babylonian ScienceIsaiah 47:12-13 Formulae of incantations (Sorceries) Charms to be placed on afflicted persons or houses (Enchantments) Records of observations which mixed astronomy with speculations (Astrology), resulted in the case of any two successive or concurrent events, in the conclusion that one was the cause of the other. ==> The reasoning from the FACT (PARTICULAR) to the GENERAL. The calculation falsified the data. ==> The beginning of erroneous “cause and effect” theory.

  40. Look Around: • The Beauty • The Variety } Of the motions of Stars God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) • Moon goes around the earth -- about 26 days • Earth goes around the Sun -- about 365 days • Sun goes around another star -- about 2 million years • The Milky Way goes around some other body

  41. God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) • Look Around: • The Beauty • The Variety } Of the motions of Stars Ezekiel 1:15-20 “… and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel…”

  42. God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) God’s Method (Way) of Creation: Genesis 1 “God said, and it was so.” Psalms 33:9 “For he spoke, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.”

  43. God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) God’s Method (Way) of Creation: Revelation 4:11 “You are worthy, O our Lord and [our] God, to receive glory and honor and power; for you have created all things, and for your will they were and they have been created.”

  44. God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) God’s Method (Way) of Creation: Psalms 33:6 tells us that He created the heavens by His word and the hosts of heaven by the breath of His mouth. God created where there was nothing before.

  45. God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) God’s Method (Way) of Creation: The objects of creation were the visible and invisible things. (Hebrews 11:1; Romans 1:20) Visible ==> The limitation of man = The visible and hearing spectrum Invisible ==> The spectrum of waves that are beyond man’s senses.

  46. God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) God’s Method (Way) of Creation: God’s creates not by parts that obey the laws of nature. God’s creative act includes the laws that govern the materials and things He creates. When man designs, he designs things that are to obey the existing laws of nature and understanding the limitations of the objects. (The infrastructure: Material Strength: Tensile, Compression, Torsion, Shear, Brittleness)

  47. God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) Man designs things by parts to fit them together. God does not design by parts, He says and that comes into existence. Man designs to be reproduced by others in the likeness of the original.

  48. God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) • God made man in His likeness. • God made man not by parts. • The method of making or creating man was: • By the method of Compressed Dust • The method of creating the woman was from Adam’s rib. • No man reproduces by the method of creation by God. Adam begot a son in his likeness, and not in the likeness of God or from the dust of the ground (Genesis 5).

  49. God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) God’s creation reproduces by growing into its fullness using the elementary materials – minerals, nutrition, etc. Therefore, “The child grew…” (Luke 1:80) When a child is conceived, it only receives the minerals, nutrition, etc. through the mother, but does not even receive a drop of its mother’s blood.All parts come into being and not brought in and assembled. Then it grows.

  50. God’s Self-revelation: He has spoken (Heb. 1:1-2) An intelligent designer is the one who invents using existing materials and technologies to obey the existing laws of nature. God’s creation is a WONDER because even the laws are created while creating things.
