The Etsy Store is getting some major upgrades

So, I have a couple of supper crazy updates with the Etsy store. I recently got a new patch design up on the store for starters. It’s pretty epic if you ask me. I am stepping away from doing just circles and am going to start designing patches that are a variety of shapes to help mix things up in the store.

Other than that I have been doing a lot of major updates to the store. Not only have I changed the look and feel of the store to match my new website design, but I have also changed the name of the store to match that as well. With the store name now totally changed to match my website I wanted to take things a step further by tackling the analytics to help with search results (something any avid online merchant should do from time to time).

So far I have been cranking through that just fine and have already seen a drastic increase in sales from what little adjustments have already been made. As of today I have tackled the analytics for the embroidery patches on the store. I still need to do the analytics for the buttons and screen print patches. But, for right now I need a break. Doing this type of junk is supper time consuming. Since I have gotten a lot done with the look, feel, and analytics of the store, I thought I would completely finish up my embroidery section by updating the photos.

This is where the frustration comes in.

I cannot for the life of me get my camera to take a good picture. Although these look clean, I am not at all happy with them. But that isn’t the aggravating part. What frustrates me is that I have a specific look and feel that I am hoping to go for, but it just isn’t going to happen with my cell phone camera. No way, no how. The upside-downside to this is that I do have a great friend at church who does photography for a living. She could totally set me up and have the listings in my store looking jam-tastic.

The only issue with that is this…

If and when I add a listing to the store I don’t want to have to depend on her or bug her each and ever time I have a new listing get added. It just wouldn’t be fair to her nor productive for either of us.

If I am going to come up with a solution to this issue, I need to be able to replicate the look I am going for at home on my own time with what camera I have. Sadly, the camera I have isn’t that great.

Anyway, Etsy store rant over… I have been tackling a lot over at the store if you wanted to go in and see the updates. I hope to have two new patch designs posted in another month. And hopefully soon I will get this photo taking issue lined out. Once I have done that and have the embroidery section totally knocked out, I will move over to the buttons and screen prints.

Oh, and another update… will be adding stickers soon also! So, there’s that.

The Great American Eclipse of 2017

On Monday, August 21st we have the Great American Eclipse happening. It is a pretty exciting thing indeed to have such an event taking place across the entire continent of North America. With that in mind, I have been thinking on it quite a bit… and honestly, I have one major question.

c-1920

But, before I ask my question we need to clarify how it all works. Bear with me for a moment while I try to elaborate on what we need to know to grasp how these bodies orbit or spin in relation to one another. Hopefully this is written in a way that it isn’t too hard to follow.

So… here we go.

To make one complete rotation in 24 hours, a point near the equator of the earth must move at close to 1,000 miles per hour (1,600 km/hr). The speed gets less as you move north, but it’s still a good clip throughout the United States. With that being the case, for simplicity sake, we will say that the earth spins at 1,000 miles per hour while making one full revolution within a 24 hour period. Within the course of one full rotation, the earth spins a total of 24,000 miles in 24 hours (seems simple enough).

The Moon orbits the earth at a speed of 2,288 miles per hour (3,683 kilometers per hour). During this time it travels a distance of 1,423,000 miles (2,290,000 kilometers) for one full revolution. The sidereal month is the time it takes to the moon to make one complete orbit around Earth. This is about 27.32 days. The synodic month is the time it takes the Moon to reach the same visual phase. This varies notably throughout the year, but averages around 29.53 days.

This would mean that one full revolution for the moon takes close to 27 or 30 full 24 hour periods. This would then further imply that the earth would in essence spin on its axis a total of 27 to 30 times while the moon itself completes one single revolution. In other words the moon during one full 24 hour period would have traveled only a total of 54,912 miles. This is roughly 1,368,088 miles shy of completing one full revolution.

To better grasp what I am getting at, the following video is a great animated visualization of these two bodies and their respective speeds of motion (the earth spinning on its axis and the moon orbiting the earth). This video makes it seem a lot less complicated than I just did, for sure.

In this video you will notice that both bodies are moving from West to East. The earth spins on its axis in an eastward direction. The moon orbits the earth in an eastward direction as well. With that in mind, both of these objects move from west to east in their respective speeds. This is something we can all agree upon I hope. The earth is going one speed. The moon is going another speed. They both travel in the same direction.

Seems simple enough…

There is however a major error that occurs when you consider the two speeds and the fact that the earth is generating a full revolution at more than 27 times that of the moon’s speed. As a result, although the Moon is moving to the east relative to the earth, the much faster westward motion of the sky is carrying it to the west, so despite its eastward motion relative to the center of the Earth, it rises in the east and sets in the west, just like any other celestial body.

To better grasp what I am rambling about, go back and watch that video again. You will notice that although the earth and moon are both traveling eastward, the earth’s greater speed is causing the moon to appear to travel east to west rather than west to east in relevance to the observer from ground level on the earth.

The point here is simply this; although the moon travels from the west in an eastward direction, the earth spins so fast that it causes the observer from ground level to see the moon traveling backwards from east to west instead. With this in mind, go back and watch the animation one last time to see what I am talking about.

Now, assuming that I haven’t lost you… here is the question.

Despite the fact that both the earth and the moon are traveling from west to east, the relative motion of both bodies causes the moon to appear to be traveling backwards from east to west. If this is the case (which it is) please… someone explain to me how in the world is the Great American Eclipse on the 21st is apparently occurring from West to East?

1

This absolutely defies the Copernican Principle.

Again, if the moon due to relativity appears to the observer to be traveling from east to west, how in the world is this eclipse happening from west to east? Someone, please explain to me how this doesn’t totally disprove the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric Cosmological Evolution?

This eclipse is only going to last like 4 hours across the United States. But before we look at the math behind this… let’s let Neil Degrasse Tyson explain real quick how math surpasses our senses. Don’t trust what you can see, touch, or feel… No, instead, trust the math.

With that in mind, let’s look at some math real quick. In order for the moon to defy our senses, no longer appearing to travel from east to west despite the fact that it supposedly isn’t, it would inevitably need to somehow speed up and begin traveling in an eastward direction faster than that of the earth’s spin.

And since it will only take 4 hours for the moon to cross North America on the 21st, this would then mean that the moon is somehow no longer traveling (according to math) 1,423,000 miles in the course of 720 hours. No, instead… on the 21st it will magically have sped up from 2,288 miles per hour to a whopping 69,644 miles per hour so as to defy the east to west observational conundrum.

Hhhmmmmm… I don’t know why, but this bible verse seems to come to mind.

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; – Luke 21:25

Who are we kidding though, I am clearly just ignorant.

To the average observer here on earth the moon travels from east to west. But, on the 21st it will be doing its own thing. Don’t worry about it. Just let the math do the talking. Like Neil Degrasse Tyson said, we can’t trust what we see anyway. The science guys will explain this one away. Keep on letting them do your thinking for you.

What does NASA have to say? 

Wrong!!!

Whatever… rant over.
Space is fake.

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.

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.

Angel's-stairs

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.

Voyager_1_entering_heliosheath_region.jpg

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.

Was the Tower of Babel Real?

Last night Sarah and I were talking briefly about the Tower of Babel. So, here is the question to consider. The reason that God confounded the language was because they had a goal that mirrored the luciferian promise of transcendence. The people were going to build a tower to the Heaven so as to make a name for themselves.

God himself said, behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

If I am correct in thinking, the people’s goal was to reach Heaven by building a building. And God went down and stopped them, saying they could accomplish anything. If this is true, would they have accomplished their goal of reaching Heaven? When we look at the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric Cosmology, supported by the big bang theory… which gives way to cosmological evolution, the answer is no. Heaven is too far away. The people of Babel would have never reached Heaven to make a name for themselves. All they would have done is reach the vacuum of space and die of lack of oxygen.

If this is true, and they would not have reached their goal, killing themselves in the process, then why did God clearly say they would have achieved anything they set to do? Clearly, that doesn’t seem right when you consider the cosmology that we are taught. Because their goal was Heaven and according to God, they could have done it had he not stopped them.

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.  And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. – Genesis 11:1-9

Pyramid Cultures Built Triptychs

Now, when we consider the fact that Babylon was a real place and the Tower of Babel is actually recorded in history, it is no surprise that we find similar structures scattered across the world. Just because your language changed, doesn’t mean someone’s habits change. They would have continued to build and live the same way as before. The only difference is that their words are different.

When you consider that, it also makes sense to see that all the continents worshiped the same gods throughout history. The only difference when you consider the similarities would merely be the names of these gods.

Go figure.

So, here is the question then… are we being lied to about God’s creation?

The more I dig into the biblical perspective of cosmology, I can’t help but see that this is true.

According to the modern day wisdom of men the moon is a rock that is more than 200,000 miles away, the sun is a star 400,000 miles wider than the earth. All the stars are massive and far away. We aren’t special and we were created by randomness which led to the sun being created before the earth. The sun doesn’t move. The earth moves.

According to be bible, the earth came first, the moon is a her, the stars are actually heavenly beings that have and will fall to the earth. The sun is on a circuit. The earth is motionless (explain any of that with the Copernican Principle). Honestly, I could go on and on.

The thing is this…

The answer I am generally given regarding this issue is simple. I am told that we are currently in an era of enlightenment. We have become smarter. We know more today than we did back then. With that in mind, a lot of the bible is left to allegory and poetic interpretation.

I have two problems with that. One, to suggest we are getting smarter implies evolution at a conscious level. Last I checked most Christians didn’t buy into evolution. With that, we are not getting smarter. We are merely at a point where we are giving into lies and calling them truths. Second, am I to believe in the wisdom of men, or the Holy inerrant word of God? Because, if one verse is interpreted as man’s lack of understanding in the past rather than truth… then at what point do we draw the line on allegory, calling the entire bible a work of fiction? The bible is either the inerrant truth or it isn’t.

That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.1 Corinthians 2:5

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 1 Corinthians 3:19

Anyway, I am clearly ignorant. And to be honest with you, I am starting to be okay with that. Because, let’s face it… people like SpaceX and NASA, the people giving us modern wisdom about the cosmos, clearly have never been caught lying… EVER.

squareearthrevealed

Whatever, I’m ignorant.

Pseudoscience takes faith; you do realize that… right

As I have begun to get on this kick of taking a new approach to how I view science (digging through the data myself rather than taking someone’s word for it), I have begun to notice a vast difference between what we call empirical science and pseudoscience. For those of you that don’t know, here is what they are:

Empirical science – Relying on or derived from observation or experiment. Verifiable or provable by means of observation or experiment. Of or being a philosophy of medicine emphasizing practical experience and observation over scientific theory.

Pseudoscience – a collection of beliefs or practices mistakenly regarded as being based on scientific method.

What I find scary about these vast differences is how quickly the scientific community makes that leap from observation and experimentation into the realm of assumption across every platform of science, while in turn building their logic on theory and faith while continuing to argue that what they are doing is in fact still considered true science. If you build up concepts based on assumptions, it does not matter how far you go. All you have managed to do is create a long string of assumptions based off of your initial assumption. But that’s just it… modern science doesn’t like to use the word assumption. They like to replace it with dazzling words like; estimated, principle calculations (meaning: self-evident proposition or assumption), hypothesis, theory, and comparison (aka; circular reasoning).

So, what am I getting at? Why does this matter?

Here is “just one” video example explaining how we know what we know about the layers of Earth from the crust all the way to the core. First, please note that the narrator is wrong in that we have only drilled about 4 miles deep. This is false. We have drilled nearly 7 miles deep. It is called the Kola Superdeep Borehole, but that is beside the point. What matters is how quickly this video jumps from empirical evidence to pseudoscience while talking about it as if it were fact… and then taking a step further and making new assumptions based on initially introduced pseudoscience.

At less than one minute into the video we are already using phrases like “scientists believe“. From there, we begin to watch as the assumptions are built upon more assumptions. And yet, it sounds so scientific. At one and a half minutes in he tells us about a computer simulation. Just because I can simulate motion doesn’t make the motion fact. This simulation is based on “scientific belief” first mentioned at the one minute mark, not fact. He states that the “new model” reveals… as if we can go from empirical evidence to an assumption, and then use that assumption to arrive back at empirical evidence through a computer generated simulation of pseudoscience. At two and one half minutes in he states that more than a million years ago the north and south poles were in opposing positions. Please tell me how you can empirically come to that conclusion without piggybacking pseudoscience along the way? You can’t. And yet, the guy literally says that we know this to be true because of “science“.

But what is science?

science – the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment (please note the last three words of this definition).

So, what’s the deal?

The point is this; there is a vast difference between fact and faith. And with this point in mind I have begun to look long and hard at what I have been taught throughout my life to be true by the scientific community. What I have found is rather alarming, in that, the scientific method time after time has been compromised for scientific faith based belief (also known as pseudoscience).

2_4_12_01

How can we honestly know what is at the core of the earth when the Kola Superdeep Borehole drill-depth is only a little more than 7.5 miles (12 kilometers). To put that in perspective, Kola descends further than the deepest point of the ocean, which lies at nearly 6.8 miles (11 kilometers). This is only one third of the way through the continental crust. To put that into perspective, that is only the first of many supposed layer. This is 0.002 percent of the way to the center.

The fact is… you can’t know. And what we have been taught to be true is merely based on assumption. Sounds a lot like faith to me. And the last time I checked science was about the provable facts, not faith.

So, this is the question, then: when did we trade in the scientific method for a scientific religion? And, have you been indoctrinated into this new world religion? If most of what science presents today is “theory“, it seems like the world is standing on a lot of faith.

Psalms 118:8 – It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

And that is exactly what is happening in the world today. Science is the new religion when you consider how much of it has been compromised for pseudoscience. If what you believe in takes a level of blind faith, I don’t care what you call it, because I call it religion. The issue I have, and the reason I am posting this, is simple. This type of “thinking/science/teaching” is littered throughout all aspects of what we are taught to be truth by the scientific world. If you don’t actually know, quit teaching it as if it were fact. And further more, if religion doesn’t belong in the classroom, then why are these types of things being taught?

Scientism is alive. Are you indoctrinated?

But who are we really kidding… I don’t know anything. I’m just ignorant.
