The Chosen

If you have not yet seen this new video series on the life of Jesus Christ I recommend it to you. So far season 1 has been released (8 episodes) and free. It is available on various platforms including YouTube.

It is very engaging though it fills in details of the biblical events depicted. Of course a lot of the filled in details are not found in the Bible but they are totally reasonable within our understanding of the life people lived then.

The next seasons are crowd funded and as a result they will make as many as they are able. It is worth listening to the some of the discussions with the director and actors as it also is inspiring. All are strong believers and want this series to be used to bring in the unsaved.

What day of the week was Jesus’ crucifixion?

I have heard it said many times that Jesus could not have been crucified on a Friday particularly if He was resurrected on the following Sunday. The following scripture is often quoted in support of this claim.

Matthew 12:40 (KJV) For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

The logic is that if we count three full 24 hour day/night cycles, and given that He rose on a Sunday morning, He would have to have had died on the Thursday morning prior. Remember the Jewish counting of a 24-hour day starts at sundown and ends at the following sundown. That means that a Friday (the Preparation Day for the weekly Sabbath) starts at sundown Thursday and ends at sundown Friday when the Sabbath begins.

Did dark energy cause the big bang?

Currently the standard model incorporates the hypothetical stuff called ‘dark energy’. That is some sort of anti-gravity type energy that is alleged to have caused the expansion of the universe to start to accelerate back about 5 billion years ago. But ‘dark energy’ is otherwise unknown to modern physics. Really it is a fudge factor in the big bang theory.

Now some cosmologists have suggested ‘dark energy’ may have had another role in the early universe. This occurred after some very brief period of hypothesized cosmic inflation that spread out whatever particles existed in the universe then to make it extremely dilute.

Astrophysicist Paul Sutter in an article on Space.com wrote:[i]

“The researchers found that a brief fluctuation in dark energy could have flooded the early universe with exotic particles like quarks, gluons and leptons that would eventually congeal into the atoms we know and love today.”

Fetal cells used in vaccine production

As you may already know aborted human fetal cells are used to culture active agents in preparation of many vaccines. Here is a table of various vaccines which used fetal cells and with them a list shown of some ethical alternatives that did not use aborted baby products.

Let’s put aside the whole issue of whether you are pro-vax or anti-vax. I want to ask the following question and I would like your feedback in the Comments section please. Let me know which way you would lean on this.

Is it morally equivalent to say that accepting a vaccine based on an aborted fetal cell line is the same as accepting a transplant organ from a murdered person?

Changes to blog sites

I have been making changes to this blog site and my other site RevolutionforJesus.com (which I am closing at the end of June 2020). As a result my personal testimony appeared here briefly but it was in error. It however can be found on this blog. It has been here since 2014. See also here.

My blog site RevolutionforJesus.com will be closed by 30 June 2020. I no longer consider it practical to maintain two blog sites. This one, BibleScienceForum.com, will continue but I am broadening its scope to include almost anything I consider worthy of comment.

However, I have transfered most of the content of RevolutionforJesus.com to this site. If some broken links do occur as a result please let me know. It is much appreciated.

On the Origin of Coronavirus from Wuhan, China

This documentary has good sound information on the true origin of the Wuhan coronavirus also called the CCP virus. The WHO wants us all to call it COVID-19 so that we don’t associate it with the country it came from, that is from China.

Watch it now!

Facebook is censoring this documentary. Check the link in the comments of the video and you’ll learn how bogus Facebook’s ‘independent’ fact checkers are. The problem is that Facebook is in bed with the WHO and uses spurious fact checking.

Who checks the fact checkers?

This is an additional discussion in reference to the documentary.

COVID-19 and 5G

Many people have been sending me internet videos claiming that there is no coronavirus (Wuhan virus) but that the COVID-19 disease is caused by 5G telephony signals, which are slowly being installed around the world. In some cases the argument is that 5G network emissions at 60 GHz ionises oxygen molecules in the air and that inhibits peoples ability to breath. Here I would like to assess this claim in light of what I do know to be true.

I am a PhD physicist who has spent more than 20 years working in the field of microwave signal generation, building ultra stable microwave oscillators (or clocks). I do know something about physics especially at frequencies between a few GHz and 100 GHz. That is, I know something about microwave and millimetre wave radio physics.

The argument that 5G telephony radiation causes COVID-19 disease is total nonsense. It is false from a factual physical perspective. In the following I present some objective facts (which don’t depend on opinion).

COVID-19: PM Scott Morrison prays for the Nation

Modelling shows that without mitigation strategies, like lock-downs and social distancing measures, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) corona virus will spread through the population infecting up to 80%, worse case scenario.

Modelling at several universities, including Imperial College London, indicated that 2.2 million could die in the US and 500,000 in the UK if these measures were not taken. That is why governments around the world have reacted so strongly to the CCP virus.

[Update 20/4/2020: I think the modelling was way off and no such numbers of people would have gotten the virus, but that changes nothing I have written below.]

So take all the precautions you can, as recommended, but know this there is only one sure-fire salvation. He is Jesus Christ, Son of God. Everyone who calls unto Him will be saved! It is promised in the Creator’s Word, the Bible. There are no exceptions to that. Pray and read your Bible. Follow God! And stay safe!

Australian BOM ‘cools the past’

This is a real scandal. The Australian Bureau of Meterology (BOM) changed the past temperature record twice, ‘cooling the past.’ But, in reality, if you look at their raw official data, it is plain to see that there has been no more hot days in Australia than usual. The data goes back to at least 1910.

The following video reveals how the past Australian temperature record has been ‘cooled’ by at least 1.5 degrees C (or 3 degrees F) in two separate revisions. That means scientists changed the values of past temperature records before the 1990s. The effect is that it artificially makes it appear that the past few decades have been hotter than any decade prior to that time. This gives the appearance that the country has been hotter in recent times. But that claim is totally false.

House bound and Art

Since many of us around the world are now house-bound because of the COVID-19 coronavirus I made a walk through video of my home art gallery and studio for you to see. It’s just for fun.

Most of the art is for sale. Checkout My Paintings page.

To all my friends, acquaintances and followers, I pray that you seek the Lord in this trying time.

Take comfort that it is not as bad as it could be. The 1918-19 Spanish flu was far worse. So bad, in fact, that some people died within 12 hours of showing symptoms. It killed 25% of all those who contracted it.

In this COVID-19 pandemic scare, modelling shows that without mitigation strategies, like lock-downs etc, the virus will spread through the population infecting up to 80%, worse case scenario. So take all the precautions you can, as recommended, but know this there is only one sure fire salvation. He is Jesus Christ, Son of God. Everyone who calls unto Him will be saved. It is promised in the Creator’s Word, the Bible. There are no exceptions to that. Read your Bible.
