About Pat

I used to tour for a living as a singer-songwriter. Now I am just an ignorant Christian.

Believe in the wisdom of men much?

This post is in no way attempting to point out what I believe, but rather the proposition of an honest question with an honest answer being sought. Lately, I have been combing through my bible and taking a look at what it might have to say about cosmology. And surprisingly enough, I have found that it has quite a bit more to say than I expected.

With that in mind, here is my question: If the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric Cosmological Evolution is the truth as we are taught both in the secular and Christian realm… how is it that both the first chapter and the last chapter of the bible defy a need for the sun’s gravitational pull on the solar system (something Earth could not exist without according to the CPHCE)?

Without the gravitational pull of the sun on the earth, moon, and other celestial bodies within the heliosheath, the heliosheath itself would not exist… protecting us from the bombardment of the cosmos around us.

The sun is supposedly 96 million miles away with a radius of about 433,000 miles. That’s pretty epic. And when you account for gravity, it becomes very apparent that nothing on this earth can sustain without that gigantic beast of a star.

I would hope that most Christians are familiar with the following scriptures, but here they are anyway… as they are a major source for my question.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day. And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. Genesis 1:1-19

You should notice that the earth was made first. Not the sun. You should also notice that the grass and plants yielding seed and fruit occurred prior to the creation of the sun. Now, obviously, there was light prior to the sun as seen in verse 3. And time and time again we have proven that you can grow plants with artificial light rather than sunlight. So, that question is already answered within the scriptures. Light existed without the aid of the sun which allowed the plants to grow. But, the plants isn’t my focus here… gravity is.

But it doesn’t stop there.

And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.Revelation 22:5

The very last chapter of the bible talks about the new creation with the new river and the new tree of life. In verse 5 we are basically told that there will be no moon or sun. The greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night will not be needed because the Lord will give forth light. A great example of this would be Genesis 1:3 as obviously stated before.

So, again… here we are with another problem for the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric Cosmological Evolution. If you take away the sun… you take away its gravitational pull, which according to the CPHCE is necessary for existence.

At what point are we actually going to start leaning on the scriptures rather than the wisdom of men?

confused-guy-scratches-head500x310

According to the CPHCE we are told that the sun is a star. Not only that, but we are told that it is one of the smallest stars. My bible has something very different to say about that as a matter of fact. My bible says that the sun is “THE” great light. And that the stars are separate from it. It goes even further to suggest that one day the stars will fall to the earth. Please explain how that is possible if all the stars are bigger than the sun and so far away that it would take trillions of billions of years for them to reach us?

Not to mention the fact that the sun is called a “he“. The moon is called a “her“… and the stars time and time again are referred to as the angels of heaven. So, what are the stars then? Big massive balls of gas zillions of miles away… or angelic beings that can and will fall to the earth (one of which is given a key to the bottomless pit at some point)?

Anyway… back to the actual question.

Please explain to me how earth can sustain without the aid of the gravitational force of the sun both at creation and after Judgment while still holding onto the Copernican Principle as believers?

Because, trust me… if you think a man can walk on water, die, rise from the dead, and float into the clouds… the world already thinks you are crazy. What would it honestly matter to them for us to start taking the bible’s account of the cosmos serious as well?

The bible is either inerrant or it isn’t.

What is more ridiculous; to trust my God given senses… or to deny them because man said I should?

I guess that makes me ignorant.

And somehow people still think we can’t fake space!!!

Whatever… if you want to be asleep, at this point you are doing it by choice. The great deception is at hand.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Revelation 12:9

Please note that it doesn’t say he will deceive some, or just the unbelievers. No… it says all.

Anyway, I’m ignorant.

Talk to you later.

The Progressive 21’st Century Slaves

Over the course of the last month I have been taking steps toward getting off of my cell phone. I am no longer on social media (with the acceptation of this website). No more facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and all of the other nonsense.

3705923608_3bc67193e8_o-554x312

Right now, I have managed to drop my online activity down to basic just online banking-bill paying, an Etsy Store (which I increased the shipping charges to help reduce sales),this site, and Youtube while I take my 15 minute breaks at work. During my one hour lunch I usually use Youtube to listen to the dramatization of the KJV bible while simultaneously reading along with an actual hands on bible. Other than that, I think the only other thing I use it for it google maps when navigating around town.

Don’t get me wrong. I think the modern day cell phone with its endless apps of possibility is rather fantastic. And in many ways simplifies life drastically. However, I have come to a point (as I assume most people have felt from time to time), where I feel like our phones are doing us more harm than good. We have them glued to our faces. And in my opinion they play a major role in the luciferian agenda of the end times.

What I mean by that is this; if you can’t convince people that God doesn’t exist, you distort their view of creation… which will eventually lead to questioning God’s existence. And if that doesn’t work, the next best thing to do would be to keep them occupied. And that is exactly what modern technology has done. Like I said, cell phones have simplified quite a bit in life for us. But at the end of the day… all they are is a waste of time and one big distraction.

We don’t exist in virtual reality. We exist in the real world. I think it is high time more of us stepped away and made an actual effort to unplug. I seem to find myself doing that more and more these days… and honestly the only thing that keeps me on here right now is the Etsy store.

We are walking toward the gates of hell and we don’t even see the darkness closing in around us. The cell phone screen is too bright when you hold it that close to your face!

Global Warming and the overwhelming impact of sin

So, Sarah and I were talking last night about a few things and the main topic that came up that seemed to overshadow most of the conversation was global warming. The thing however, is that it wasn’t talked about in a way that most people might consider.

rtr-donald-trump-white-house-lawn-jc-170406_1_12x5_1600

Now, don’t get me wrong. I do think that global warming is real when you stop to consider that creating friction on a surface does generate heat. And when the populous becomes too much for the surface of earth, it makes sense that the surface would warm as a result of the activity. Couple that will our need to pollute and the concept of warming makes sense without the need for a collage degree.

However, I propose another suggestion; one that is not new, but rather an emphasis on an older concept. When we look at the old testament of the bible there were quite a few times when sin became so overwhelming that God did something drastic to douse the flames. The flood, Sodom and Gomorra, and the Tower of Babel… just to name a few.

With those in mind one can’t help but consider the current world status of our climate, the devastating weather patterns beginning to emerge, and the growing sins of this world and how they have managed to mirror almost exactly one another. When we consider the world events starting to unfold just in the last 6 months, it is hard to sit back and not scratch your head and realize that it might actually have something to do with our overwhelming acceptance of sin.

But, I want to take it a step further. Our conversation last night also led into what we see currently covered on mainstream news here in the States. And my only question is this; if there is this much happening across the globe, why is it that CNN, FOX, ABC, NBC, and all the other news affiliates like the NY Times seem to only be concerned with what is happening on Trump’s twitter account.

I think the funny thing is that I don’t find that ironic at all. In today’s world that is what is to be expected, I guess.

Anyway, keep being ignorant. Keep on living life without a repentant heart. It totally has nothing to do with the current state of things… I promise.

And who knows… maybe tomorrows update on Trump’s twitter will shape the world as we know it.

A post for the family since I don’t do traditional social media

1

So, this blog site has been up for a little while now. And honestly, the only thing I ever really post about despite the fact that no one really reads it, is the countless reasons I know for a fact that NASA is 100% fake. With that in mind, I decided to post something different. Since I am not on any social media sites, I figured it would be good to do a post for my family. Show you guys a little bit of what is going on in my world from half way across the country (and in some cases across the state).

Although living in Austin is awesome I have to admit I miss my family. I miss my moms and my dads. I miss my in-laws. I miss my old friends from Florida. And even those from East Texas. Regardless, the love is still flowing strong way over here in the center of it all.

Jake the Dog and Walter White are constantly wrestling in the doorway while I am trying to walk by. Not only that, but today was our first official day back from vacation where we celebrated our 7th anniversary. To kick things off right, when I got home from work we tackled the yard. Grass has been mowed. Weeds have been wacked.

Not only that, but while we were gone Sarah’s parents dropped in and house sat the pets for us. During their say they managed to do a little gardening. We got a new set of cacti potted on the back porch… and a brand new baby tree in the back yard. Seven years from now (assuming we still live in the same house or the end of the world hasn’t happened), it will be refreshing to see how much that tree has grown as we celebrate another long string of anniversaries.

Sarah’s mom also potted a few pepper plants and a tomato plant for me. It is something I have been meaning to do myself, but life just seems to always get in the way. Now that I have them going however, I can enjoy the pleasure of maintaining my own mini garden. I am excited about this, because gardening always reminds me of my grandfather, Gilbert Nunez. Growing up he had an epic garden that covered a pretty solid portion of the back yard. And I have fond memories of picking veggies with him and watering. Back before I started touring as a musician I had a pretty hefty little potted garden in the back of the venue I ran in Florida. But that was a lifetime ago. Feels good to finally have one started back up again.

The garden prep that Sarah’s mom did was my birthday present (birthday was just a few days ago).

Other than that, Sarah is on summer break. I have a part time job while I am working toward passing Board exams for my future career. And, I recently became the drummer at the church we attend. So, that’s cool. May not be on tour… but the music is still going strong.

Life is good.

New tunes for a heart that longs for Christ

Well, it has been a while since I took the time to dig into finding any new bands to get into. And well, I have to say… I stumbled across two that I officially felt need a shout out.

The first one is called Those Who Fear. They are pretty much a culmination of all things doom metal (also known as deathcore). They remind me of bands like Impending Doom, Oceano, and Emure. The upside to this band (like Impending Doom), is that they are Christian through and through.

The other band is called Rivers and Robots. Now, I am not much of a fan in the band name, but I have to say… I have found it very hard to get into worship music as a Christian over the course of the last several years. It just seems commercialized these days and holds no true depth of character, but instead focuses on the “formula” for the sake of success. This band is not like that at all. They remind me a lot of a band called Band of Horses. Only, these guys are downright worship that comes straight from the heart without question. My heart is pulled in so many directions while listening to these guys. They are currently my favorite worship band. And that is saying a lot considering how I have felt for so long about the commercialization of the genre.

With that said, I am thankful for the God fearing Christians out there that are honing their crafts as musicians seeking to glorify the name of Jesus Christ, our savior. Finding these two bands has been refreshing indeed.

My Visit the the McDonald Observatory

Well, today is my birthday. And to celebrate my birthday, Sarah and I went all the way out to the McDonald Observatory in West Texas. This place is in the middle of nowhere up on top of some pretty epic mountains. Today, while we were there we not only got to visit the actual telescopes (one of which I had the pleasure of personally controlling manually), but we also observed the sun.

ob1.jpg

It was a pretty cool experience and I have to admit, the scenery on the way there was breathtaking.

But, I will say… there is one thing that today’s trip got me thinking about. First off, the Polaris Star (also known as the North Star) is stationary in the night sky. I asked the tour guide how it was possible for the North Star to be stationary in the night sky while we traverse the void of space in four directions at once. He managed to not grasp what I was actually asking, and instead mentioned a 5th motion that he posed does change the North Star dramatically. Not only has this motion of Polaris never been observed in the last 6,000 years of recorded cosmology, but it apparently happens every 27,000 years. Again, something that can’t be observed. Makes sense to me.

ob2.jpg

How can we state a fact like that without the ability to actually observe it? Seems like science… lol.

But, anyway… that isn’t what this blog is about. This blog is about the sun… because, at the end of the day that was what the main part of the tour was about.

So… according to modern day astronomy the sun is a star. Not only that, but it is one of the smallest stars. According to this same modern day teaching of the cosmos the sun was formed prior to the earth and is currently 93 million miles away.

So then… why is it that everything we are taught about the cosmos today is absolutely backwards from what the bible says? According to the bible the earth was made first (not the sun). The Sun and moon were made separate from the stars (meaning the sun is not a star). The sun and moon are both called great lights (according to the Copernican Principle our sun is not great when compared to other stars). The bible also says that the sun, moon, and stars all exist inside of the firmament. And that this firmament is where the birds fly.

So then, which is true?

Are we to believe as Christians that the bible is the inerrant truth (except when it talks about science, which makes it no longer inerrant)? Or, are we going to believe the cabalistic indoctrinations of the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric Cosmological Evolution?

Rather than being long winder, trying to make a lot of points (which I feel I could easily do) I want to just leave you with this thought.

Why is it that literally everything we are told about the cosmos is the exact opposite of what the bible says?

snake.jpg

Anyway, my birthday trip was fun. Space exploration is fake. The sun, moon, and stars are close and small. Satellites do not exist beyond the stratosphere (all we are ever shown is CGI and cartoons).

The earth is motionless. I know this to be true because that is what my senses tell me and that is what my bible tells me.

The earth was made first. The one way speed of light is assumed. With that said, everything you have been told about the cosmos is an assumption.

Have a good day, and thanks for reading. For my birthday, my challenge to you is to go back and read what the bible says about the cosmos. What it has to say is very clear… very clear indeed.
