Passive versus Active Engineering in Living Things

From an engineering standpoint it’s very important to emphasise the advantages of direct engineering over passive engineering. Passive engineering relies exclusively on trial and error. Edison developed the incadescent light bulb in this way. He knew that a metal wire would emit light when enough elecrical current was passed thru it. The problem was to get that light to be emittedĀ  at a temperature sufficiently below the metal’s melting point. And, after a long process of trying all sorts of different metal wires he eventually tried tungsten and got the results he wanted. Passive engineering is slow and inefficient to say the least. If Edison had more complete data on the light emission vs. melting point characteristics of all metals at his disposal, he could have known exactly which one to use and could have actively engineered his light bulb based on that information. He might have realized that plasma based lighting would have been a much better path to pursue had he been privy to plasma physics. When it came time to generate the needed electrical power to light all those bulbs he was making Edison’s passive approach to engineeringĀ kept him in the direct current box. Nichola Tesla had a more active approach to engineering that freed him from endless trials and errors. He instead ran the trials mentally and was able to produce a completely functual “prototype” without any need for physical trials. Tesla had a mind for physics that was way beyond Edison’s. He realized that electricity travelled farther and more efficientlywhen the electrons were just shoved back and forth instead of pushed exclusively in one direction. The electrons just needed to pass thru the wire, it didn’t matter which direction they were going. So Edison failed miserably to light all his light bulbs with his DC generators. Today AC generators keep up a power grid that spans continents with amazing efficiency thanks to Tesla’s active approach to engineering.

Living things were actively engineered. We know this because precise understanding of physics that is needed to even half-way reproduce it by human efforts. Darwin thought that passive engineering could have engineered all of life on earth by “natural selection” that is passive engineering or trial and error at work in nature. Darwinism is exclusively a passive engineering creation myth. It might be a little better than some pagan myths, but not by much.

Trial and error passive engineering is just a little bit past futile, but it’s pretty close. And that approach is much closer to futile in the world of bio-engineering. To bio-engineer things right you need first a full knowledge of 3-dimensional molecular physics and that means a tour de force ability to build molecular machinery to fulfill all the needs of a living organism that can replicate itself precisely and continuously. This is by no means the stuff of passive engineering even with an infinite amount of time. It just won’t happen!!!

Where is America in the Bible?

I have heard many people say that America is not mentioned in Biblical prophecy. That seems odd to me since there is clear reference to the US. The Book of Revelations is primarily about the future of the people of God, those that believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s about the battle God is waging to save human souls from those that want to destroy human souls. John, the Apostle is entrusted with this information and he faithfully writes it down for our benefit.

There is a woman that is clothed with bright light who represents the bride or the Church the body of Christ, believers. After many years of the church being stifled by idolatry and oppressive leaders, the believing body of Christ begins to emerge once again during the protestant reformation and the publication of the scriptures in the native languages for all to read and not just the “clergy” in latin. This takes place in today’s Europe and this is where the woman labors to give birth to a “man child”. That is the believing church wants to obey the Bible and turn to Christ Jesus for salvation instead of going to men that call themselves, “priests”.

So, the church is laboring to return to the teachings of Jesus and the Apostles and receiving persecution from the corrupt oppressive “church” that wanted to maintain their power over them much like the jewish leaders that put Jesus to death out of jealousy. Revelations tells us that the woman gives birth to a “man-child” that is quickly carried away into the “wilderness”.

The pilgrims carried this revived Biblical faith in Jesus and His salvation by grace, not by “priests” or religious rituals to the “New World”. America was a place where this revived scriptural faith in Jesus Christ could be nurtured in a climate of religious freedom away from the bigots that wanted them dead. Jesus referred to the believing Church as the “Bride of Christ” and this bride gives birth to true faith, with Satan as a dragon waiting to kill the child like an abortionist the moment it emerges. Satan fails to destroy the faith of the new believing people of God when God, the Creator allows the baby reformed church to escape to America or the “wilderness”, where God’s Holy Spirit can freely strengthen and mature this young revived Church.

So, we can see that our only glory before God as a nation is that the America has been a place for believing Scriptural Christianity to thrive and grow which was not the case in Europe at that time. This is perhaps the only reference to America in Scripture other than perhaps the nation that is destroyed in a day, “and all the nations would weep for her,

Rev 18:11-19
“And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.”

America is no longer the nurturing place for the Christian faith that it once was. Children are taught that they are animals and the Bible is forbidden in the classroom. 53 Million people have been murdered with the blessing of our government and “protected” by strict laws that permit mothers to kill their babies. Atheistic evolutionism is the official state religion in America. The US is considered the great “leader of the free world” and known be the world as the greatest producer of goods today. Just like “Babylon the great” that is destroyed in a day and all the nations stand by in amazement and weep for her because this nation is turning against God.

There is also the mention of 2 prophets that will emerge in the last days to defy the evil anti-christian system that is rising in the world. I think we already know who they are and if so, I hope they can turn many back to our Creator!! With the Lord Jesus’ help, I too, hope that I will be found found faithful! I also pray for all those that read this that they will seek the Lord and trust Him supremely!!

Does Science Really Have Any Purpose?

The answer to this question is simple really. Science COULD have a purpose and I suppose it DID up until recently, but I don’t see it has having much further use to our Creator.

!. It has helped facilitate mass communication which is helpful for Christians to tell others about Jesus and His message of salvation. “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”

2. It has helped us see the wisdom of our Creator in the engineering of His universe and living things, though sadly, not directly declared but instead overtly denied pitting science in direct opposition to it’s own “raison d’etre” that is, reason to be. “The heavens declare the glory of God…”

3. In spite of itself, science has revealed the deep ignorance, blindness and rebellious nature of those in charge and how easily mankind can be duped into believing obsurd and blasphemous things.

The Apostle Paul prophesied about science,

“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”

“Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

If science ever had any usefullnes, it no longer seems to benefit those involved. I encourage those that are involved to find other things to do that are usefull instead of being part of the problem. Each of us is responsible to our Creator. Christians, creationists and those that accept “intelligent design” need to step up and fill the intellectual vacuum that mainstream science has become. (Science, as it is, is not worthy of you.)

If mainstream science can’t handle that, we can only ask Jesus for guidance and be willing to speak up and do what we can in sincerity with kindness considering our own faith. I cringe when I see godly men and women trying to win the aproval of the “scientific establishment”, why should we care about their approval? Seriously! It’s like a virtuoso singer seeking Tiny Tim’s approval. As they say today, “Just get over it!”

The future of science as blessing and not a curse is in the hands of those willing to stand up against its sins and willing to teach only what we know about our “origins” and that is the teachings of scripture. And remind everyone that all other teachings, and so-called “theories and facts” are completely conjecture and guesses at best, blasphemous at worst (and all too commonly!).

It may be more practical to just toss science completely and re start the study of nature with a new name, like, “creation studies” and leave “science” to devour itself in it’s own rebellion. Let’s make a real statement by honoring our Creator with our lives!

Primative Man? The Myth Lives On!

To give Darwin’s theory any credibility there’s been a lot of digging around in an effort to find some sort of means to convince the world that humanity has come from some sort of ape ancestory. They tell us all about our so-called primate distant cousins and display all sorts of skulls that appear vaguely human in the hopes of pursuading us of the primative man idea.

Today we know of perhaps 4 “great apes” that have certain similarities to the human body form. They are all incapable of speech (unlike birds however) or the fabrication of stone tools. Yet, it’s the ability to fabricate and use stone tools that is considered to be the ancestory indicator if you will. Have you ever tried to make a stone tool yourself? Stone is a hard material to work with as we all know.

But, we all know that there is a wide range of head shapes within existing humanity. Who knows how many of the existing human beings have skulls that look guite the same as these supposed ape-human transitional creatures. How many of those supposed transitional skulls could just be that of some other now extinct great apes that have no ancestral relationship with man whatsoever?

To say that any of these “homonid” skulls proves a human link to the great apes is completely conjectural. How many diseases are there that can alter the human or ape skeleton in ways that give them different posture and shape the skull. Malnutrition, minerals in drinking water. And what about hybridization between the groups or the possibility of human groups degenerating into what are now the great ape forms?

It’s not hard to differentiate these 2 groups and see how far apart they really are when you compare the creative abilities of man and those of the great apes or any other creature for that matter. The distinctions between humans and animals cannot be over stressed. The first humans were introduced as thinking creative beings just as they continue to be today.
