An amateur astronomer’s new camera

So, just this last week on Februray 18th, only six days ago, an “amateur” astronomer took a “photo” of a supernova only 80 million light years away. Man, talk about a serious camera, right?

Before I get into this thing I wanted to lay out what exactly a supernova is. A supernova is a transient astronomical event that occurs during the last stellar “evolutionary stages” of a massive star’s life, whose dramatic and catastrophic destruction is marked by one final titanic explosion. This material as it spreads out allows for its mass to be reformed with other materials to form “new” stars.

The primary article that I first read regarding this new supernova being seen in action was from the Los Angeles Times. The title of the article reads as follows; An amateur astronomer testing a new camera happens to catch a supernova as it’s being born.

When I read the title, the first thing that comes to my mind is an amateur astronomer. I have a few friends that have some pretty new telescopes at home. With that, I would consider them to be enthusiasts. You know… amateurs. The types of cameras and telescopes they tend to be able to afford and use look like the following.

The amateur astronomer that took the “photo” was Victor Buso. He used a 1-Meter Swope telescope, which also happened to be attached to the Carnegie Institution for Science, Las Campanas Observatory, in Chile. The “camera” that he used was the following “telescope”… you know, because “amateur“.

So, which is it? One article says that he took the images from the roof of his home. And another article says the images were taken in a science lab.

Now, I could sit here and go even further by talking out the logic that goes into what it actually means to “take a photo” against what actually happens within an observatory by gathering none observable “data“.  But, I won’t. And the reason why is simple.

I don’t need to.

If these people can’t keep their story straight, why believe anything  they say? If you want to believe in evolution you go right ahead. But, if you want to get technical about it, the only evolution that has even been observed doesn’t seem to be a reliable source.

Augmented reality then and now

So… Google is finally bringing augmented reality functionality to Chrome for those of you that seem to think something like that is useful. And, of course… you can’t help but see the irony in the fact that they chose (of all things) an astronaut for public demonstration.

Quote: “The unique power of AR is to blend digital content with the real world. So we can, for example, surf the web, find a model, place it in our room to see just how large it truly is, and physically walk around it.”

That one time Don Pettit’s coffee came out of the bag on the ISS.

Seems legit… green screen?

I don’t know about you, but just like with most things, it seems to me like the powers that be have had access to this sort of thing for while now. And it is just now reaching the general public. With that said, there is coming a day when the deception will be so strong that no one, and I mean no one… will be able to tell the difference.

2 Thessalonians 2:7-12For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wondersAnd with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

It’s coming, people.

Proof of Evolution – a species defined

This BBC article that posted yesterday on the proof of evolution is the epitome of why I am totally fed up with how stupid the scientific community is becoming.

kimb-finch2

But first, let us define what a species actually is. It is a group of living organisms consisting of similar individuals capable of exchanging genes or interbreeding. In simple terms this means that a species is any group of animal that exists together as one type. For example, foxes, wolves, and dogs are a single species. Eagles, falcons, and pigeons are all one species (known as a bird). Birds are one type of species. Although there are many types of snakes, snakes as a “species” is what we would consider one type of “species”… and so on and so on.

With that, this BBC article was ridiculous!

funny-satirical-evolution-charles-darwin-day-30__700

In short, apparently the new definition of evolution has somehow changed from one species become a new species to something a little less than that. It has now become one bird from another area mating with another bird from a different area… which in turns resulted in a bird.

Who would have guessed?

Apparently, birds mating and making baby birds proves that evolution is real.

I have an honest question about Faith and Science

I just wanted to take a moment to ask a genuine question.

As a Christian I have found that pretty much most, if not all, Christians will agree that the bible is the truth. These same bible believing Christians will also agree with one another regarding the creation account (to an extent… which is what brings up my question).

What I mean by that is this.

Most Bible believing Christians will agree that God created man, placing him in a real garden. He then put man to sleep so as to take a rib to create woman. Eventually, they sinned against God and were kicked out of the garden. With that, the concept of evolution is thrown out the window. Most Christians that I meet will instantly agree that Darwin, the Geologic column, and the theory of evolution are totally bogus. This theory defy the bible and the creation account (no question about it). When we look deep enough at evolution one can quickly see the lies.

For example, everyone has heard of the missing link. If we came from primates, then where is the link between us and them? But it doesn’t stop there. If a rock turned into a fish, and a fish turned into a lizard, then show me a missing link there. If a lizard turned into a cat, show me the missing link there. And honestly, you can’t (the reason why is due to the fact that there is a missing link between every kind of species… which is why evolution is still just a theory in the eyes of most Christians).

And since evolution is piggybacking on the geologic column, so many Christians are quick to point out the fact that there are major issues with it as well while defending their faith in the validity of scripture. For example, if those layers were formed over long periods of time, then why are there trees protruding through different sections into other sections? Or, why does carbon dating seem flawed after going back only a few thousand years? You can record the fur on an animal against the skin on the same animal and come up with a different set of numbers by thousands of years.

And when it comes to the Galapagos Islands and Darwin, Christians are so quick to band together regarding the difference between adaptation within a species and evolution itself. There is a difference for sure. So, here is a total side note that is separate from my upcoming question. The two men who popularized a philosophy that is considered a direct attack on the foundations of the church are both honored by being buried in the foundations of a church (just look up Westminster Abby).

So, here is the question I am asking in part…

If we as Christians are so quick to defend our faith and the Bible when it comes to the creation account of Adam, Eve, and the other variations of life… then why are we so quick to jump on the bandwagon of cosmological evolution by standing up for the very same set of philosophers of today who have their foundations in the works of people like Darwin and Arthur Holmes (the very people we are fighting against)?

Because, at the end of the day all of this stuff is piggybacking off of one another. You don’t get evolution without the Copernican Principle. You don’t get the Copernican Principle without the Big Bang. If you take away the Copernican Principle (which in my eyes is an absolute disordered account of the creation story in the Bible) you will have automatically removed the Big bang theory. If you remove the Big Bang, then evolution is obviously a lie.

maxresdefault

I just don’t understand it.

We as Christians agree that evolution is not true. But on the other hand we are so quick to agree with the scientific community regarding their discoveries of distant galaxies, other habitable planets orbiting gas giants, and the ever expanding reaches of space.

How is it that we have missed this one?

Everything that modern astronomy is focused on today comes down to the Big Bang theory (which is at the end of the day, the foundation of the Copernican Principle… which feeds into the Geological Column… which feeds Darwin). When you hear of a planet being discovered, or that nebulas are were stars are born, or that the galaxy is slowly moving away from itself… all of those things are based on the Big Bang theory.

Why then, are we so quick to get excited and agree with man regarding creation when the foundations of mans interpretation of creation itself defies scripture?

My Bible doesn’t say that the stars are born in clouds of gas. My Bible says that the stars are the angels of heaven and that they have all already been numbered and named. My Bible doesn’t say that the sun is also a star. No, it says that the sun is separate from the stars. My bible doesn’t say that the sun was created first (which is how it would have to be under the Copernican Principle). No, my Bible says that the earth was made first. My bible doesn’t say that the earth is moving. No, it says that the sun is moving.

With all of that said, let me ask my question one last time.

Why are we as Christians so quick to defend the idea of Cosmological Evolution while in the same breath agreeing that the Big Bang is not how it happened?

1-CMB_Timeline300_no_WMAP

But, who are we kidding… right?

I clearly am just ignorant and we really do exist in a world where it is okay to agree while simultaneously disagreeing. On one hand, we as Christians agree that the biblical account of Adam and Eve was real. But then, on the other hand… perhaps the creation of time, space, and matter itself was all just metaphorical. Because, you know… the wisdom of modern man supersedes scripture by placing scripture more and more into the realm of allegory rather than truth.

If the Christian world has already done enough homework to realize that Darwin, Holmes, and the Big bang are nothing more than the delusion of an Anti-Christ spirit, then why have we stopped there? As a Christian, if you actually stop and do the same type of homework regarding the cosmos, you will find the same line of reasoning that favors evolution coupled with a string of lies told by man.

I think it is time we stop trusting in the wisdom of man and actually dig into the scriptures to determine what the word says regarding the cosmos.  The thing that I find ironic is that some Christians actually use scripture to defend the Big bang.

Well, God said let there be light… and bang, it happened.

As cool as that sounds… it is the very thing that feeds the fact that we are still to this day fighting against the foundations of Darwin and Holmes.

You can’t have one without the other.

And if we agree that they forged lies regarding evolution, then as Christians why believe the very same set of people regarding the cosmos?

I just don’t get it.

Because, at the end of the day… when you actually stop and look at who is telling us what regarding the cosmos, you start to see things like this, or this.

With that in mind, why do we so quickly side with those in opposition of scripture?

So many sixes it’s making my head spin

Earth’s orbital plane is known as the ecliptic plane, and Earth’s tilt is known to astronomers as the obliquity of the ecliptic, being the angle between the ecliptic and the celestial equator on the celestial sphere. Earth currently has an axial tilt of about 23.4°.

tilt

An axial plane is based on the 90° pivot. With that in mind I find it rather strange to consider that the opposing tilt of the earth equates to a rather interesting number. What I mean by that is this; if we were to subtract 23.4° from 90°, we get exactly 66.6°.

Hhmmm…

What a wonderful coincidence.

But, it doesn’t stop there. According to Live Science, we are also carrying a velocity of roughly 66,600 MPH as we fly through space around the sun.

1200px-North_season

Hhmmm….

What another wonderful coincidence.

Or even better… what about the fact that the curvature of the earth for one mile squared equates to exactly 0.666 ft. If you don’t believe me you can do the math yourself using this program.

I bet, if you decided to not stop there and continued to look at the math behind how the secular world describes their godless creation, the coincidences wouldn’t stop here.

But then again, who are we kidding… right? I clearly am just ignorant.

If you want to believe you are flying through space at 66,600 miles per hour around the sun while on an opposing tilt of 66.6° with a radial drop of 0.666 ft per mile squared under your feet, you go right head.

I think I’ll put my feet on the bible instead of the wisdom of secular men, thank you very much.

1 Chr. 16:30: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable.”

Ps. 93:1: “Thou hast fixed the earth immovable and firm …”

Ps. 96:10: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable …”

1858a9e

Now, don’t get me wrong… I do realize that there are plenty of verses that suggest the world does move. For example:

Ps. 99:1: “The Lord reigneth … let the earth be moved.”

Job 26:7: “He … hangeth the earth upon nothing.

Is. 24:19: “the earth is moved exceedingly.”

With that in mind I am neither arguing for or against the motion of the earth. All I am getting at here is the simple fact that we are so quick to settle on the side of the secular world when it comes to Biblical creation. If we are so quick to stand up against things like the theory of evolution, why then would describing the creation of earth and the celestial bodies above be any different? Rather than standing on the truth of God’s word, we have given the Biblical attributes of cosmology over to the wisdom of men, diminishing that portion of the Bible to allegory rather than truth.

Just think about it.

If Satan really is in charge right now, and his goal is to deceive men into believing that God does not exist, the quickest way to do something like that would be to distort their view on creation itself.

But… I digress.

I’m clearly just ignorant. All of those numbers above are clearly just a coincidence.

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.

m1.jpg

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.

Subtle signs that hint to the truth

I have a lot of friends both Christian and non-Christian alike that love NASA. They love science and space exploration. They love learning about black holes, gas giants, and all the cool things NASA constantly puts out. I used to be like that too. But, the one thing that these two groups of people will disagree on is creation. The idea of God creating all things against the idea that it all started from nothing is a big debate. And today, many Christians side with the nothingness theory as if it were proven true, but still insist that God inspired the nothingness to create everything regardless of the fact that this concept goes against scripture.

And the pioneer of these epic discoveries just so happens to have no agenda at all. NASA is neither secular or Christian. Their agenda is clearly just one of science and the pursuit of knowledge… nothing more. Nothing less. That is one thing that both sides of the NASA fandom will agree on. NASA doesn’t have an agenda toward or against spiritual matters.

I am sorry, but I disagree with that entirely.

If they are known for being so none bias, then why is every single mission that they do related to pagan gods, Gnosticism, the occult, or outright luciferian concepts? And as of yesterday, we have yet again another example of this very thing to pile atop the countless other examples.

Meet Lucy, the mission that is apparently sending us to the Trojan Asteroids of Jupiter.

NASA-Lucy-spacecraft-studying-Jupiter-Trojan-asteroids-image-credit-Southwest-Research-Institute

Let’s totally set aside the fact that once again we are presented with nothing more than fake CGI junk rather than something tangible and real. Let’s stop and take a look the subliminal meanings behind this mission. And, in turn consider how NASA truly is none bias… or not.

The first thing to consider is the destination. We are sending a probe to a cluster of rocks known as Trojans. A Trojan by definition is a tool used to mislead large groups of people against the devices true intent. Secondly, we should stop and look at how and why the project was given its name; Lucy.

The name Lucy is derived from a Latin word, Lucius, meaning light. This explains why Satan is also known as Lucifer… also meaning light. And since the promises of Satan were transcendence and illumination, it is no wonder the movie Lucy was given such a name when evaluating what it was about (transcendence).

lucy_final_logosv

This patch symbolizes exactly the stance that NASA has on spiritual matters. With that in mind, I do not understand how so many Christians can so quickly rally behind this organization. Here, in this patch we have Lucy, the monkey skeleton… which stand on the bases of the evolution of mankind from primates to humans. Secondly, we have the rocks next to the probe. When compared to the ape bones to the probe we can see that it implies our evolutionary transcendence via the promises of Lucifer through knowledge and technology… who just so happens to hold the exact same meaning in his name as the word Lucy on the patch.

To make things even more interesting, the name of this NASA probe project was derived from the Beatles and a song called “Lucy in the sky with diamonds“. I could honestly rant on this fact forever. With that in mind I will simply point out that the album that this song appears on is heavily tied to LSD and Alice in Wonderland… which implies higher states of copiousness (Lucy being a great title since it means what it means).  Enough said.

So… why the diamond? Could it possibly be because it ties so well with the rest of the theme? I bet that could be the case. The diamond shape symbolizes ascension, clarity, and wisdom in many cultures.

With that said, here we have NASA propagating evolution to the masses, honoring Lucifer for his light of promising ascension, clarity, and wisdom through a band that is heavily associated with the occult. While at the same time admitting to your face that it is nothing more than a Trojan meant to mislead the masses, which is exactly what it is doing.

You want to keep believing in their fake CGI nonsense, you go right ahead.

As for myself, I will stick with the scriptures and the true scientific method. I don’t know. I guess I’m just ignorant, but a $19 billion dollar budget doesn’t automatically make your NASA cartoon truth. It is still just a cartoon.

And at the end of the day, I don’t care what you believe in… one thing is clear. NASA does promote a spiritual agenda weather you admit it or not. Just go back and look at the names of all their past missions.

There is a point when you could consider it all to be coincidence. But, let’s face it. We have been beyond that point for quite some time now.
