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…

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,…

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,…

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…
