‘Charles Darwin himself shuddered at the thought that evolutionary processes had to explain human vision. He said, ‘To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.”‘https://www.creationstudies.org/articles/theory-of-evolution/114-darwin-versus-the-human-eye
I know, people have died from the China virus but does the government of a democratic society really believe that closing churches is the answer to keeping people safe? Personally, I see Canada ready to fall to the CCP and unfortunately, Biden’s USA is next. This CCP China virus is only the beginning.
The following is exactly what China’s Communist Party does!
‘Facebook has just permanently banned LifeSiteNews’ Facebook page. This apparently is not a temporary measure: It is gone for good.
In a quick series of notices and emails to LifeSiteNews’ marketing department, Facebook delivered the shocking news, accusing LifeSite of publishing “false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.”
Facebook also said that they deplatform Facebook pages that publish “vaccine discouraging information on the platform.”
Facebook cited an article posted on April 10, 2021, headlined “COVID vaccines can be deadly for some.”
“Much like when LifeSite was removed from YouTube, this comes with little surprise,” noted LifeSiteNews Marketing Director Rebekah Roberts. “We have known this day was coming for months now.” SUBSCRIBEto LifeSite’s daily headlinesSUBSCRIBEU.S. Canada World Catholic
“Facebook has been silencing any voice that goes against their beliefs and agenda,” continued Roberts. “Our LifeSiteNews Facebook page has been removed simply because we have shared reports of doctors, nurses, expert researchers, and even the former Pfizer VP speaking out against the COVID shots. We’ve also been tagged for the numerous articles we have shared making the connection between the COVID shots, and really all vaccines, and aborted baby cell lines.”
“This all comes down to another case of Big Tech silencing free speech on their platform,” she added.
“At this time, I encourage those of you who are still on Facebook, Twitter, and other Big Tech platforms to continue sharing LifeSiteNews articles with your friends and family, please!” urged Roberts. “I also encourage you to follow us on these alternative platforms:”’https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/breaking-facebook-permanently-bans-lifesitenews-page?utm_source=featured&utm_campaign=standard
Ecclesiastes 10:1 “Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: [so doth] a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom [and] honour.”
Are you old enough to remember comedian Jimmy Durante who made frequent jokes about his, hmm, quite large nose? Well, those jokes and his nose gave him the nickname “Schnozzola”. While Jimmy’s nose made him very popular many if not most of us ‘…don’t often think about our sense of smell. While our noses are on the job all the time, we note an odor only when it is unusual. Most of the time, the scents around us contribute, unnoticed, to our overall impression of our surroundings.
It’s hard to remain tense at the beach. Simply the mention of the water and waves, the sand and sun brings back to memory the last trip to the beach and starts relaxing a person. However therapeutic these elements of the beach are, scientists have found that the one beach fixture that is probably most responsible for relaxing us is the smell.
The smelly chemical that utility companies put in natural gas so that we can smell leaks is methyl mercaptan. This chemical is also produced by rotting meat. The human nose is extremely sensitive to this smell. We can detect as little as one 400-billionth of a gram of it in a quart of air.
Doctors have long known that their noses are helpful in diagnosing disease. A person is brought into the emergency room in a coma. It’s very likely that the doctor will smell the patient’s breath as he tries to discover the problem. A sweet smell could indicate diabetes. The smell of ammonia could indicate a kidney malfunction. Arsenic poisoning smells like garlic. Diphtheria can be identified by a sickeningly sweet odor, and people with the plague smell like apples. A patient who smells like freshly baked bread may have typhoid.
While we seldom think about our sense of smell, it’s a wonderful gift from our Creator for which we owe Him thanks.’https://creationmoments.com/sermons/doctor-nose-2/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=doctor-nose-2&mc_cid=05543b6e46&mc_eid=00c1dcff3c
Personally, I am beginning to distrust Government on almost everything. The following is a slip of the tongue but there is probably a LOT of truth in it as well.
‘Do you realize that on Good Friday they killed the truth?
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). Yet, we know that the truth came back! Jesus came out of the tomb, showed Himself to many and is alive to this day. The point is that no matter the evil forces coming against the truth, the truth “bounces back” and cannot be kept down.
Today it is the same. Truth is denounced at every hand. The crowds may holler in favor of unrighteousness – like they did for Barabbas – but God’s truth cannot be suppressed for long! The Bible teaches this throughout, holding forth the ultimate hope of victory over sin and death – including its roots in lies and deception. Jesus is indeed “the way, the truth, and the life”.
The Bible also teaches that we should not be surprised at the depth of depravity of mankind. We read, “For…men… hold the truth in unrighteousness…and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man… and changed the truth of God into a lie” (Romans 1:18-25).
Note in these famous texts that mankind has “changed” both “the glory” and “the truth”. They go together. “Glory” is synonymous with splendor and gorgeousness, brilliance and beauty. So the truth of God is correlated in the Scriptures to the resplendent beauty, the glory of God. And Jesus is that divine personification of truth and beauty.
Philosophers, poets and theologians have noted the link between truth and beauty. The poet John Keats famously and simply put it in his “Ode to a Grecian Urn”:
“Beauty is truth, truth beauty” – that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.
Lies, on the other hand, are ugly. Deceit is ugly. Sin is ugly. Thankfully, the judgments of our Lord are “true and righteous altogether”, and He is, thus, thoroughly glorious and brilliantly beautiful! He has marked His creation with the elegant and exquisite touch of beauty everywhere – in a profound proliferation of harmony in shape and sound and color that is at the same time magnificent and mysteriously intriguing so as to win our fascination and admiration.
Flowers blooming all around, leaves budding from the trees, and birds singing in the breeze. The sights and sounds of spring remind us again of the wonderfully refreshing beauty of God’s creation! But what forms and functions define beauty and the harmonious order which make things pleasant to look at and listen to? Philosophers have wondered about this for ages. Nature is full of a very pleasant beauty and harmony tied together by a mathematical order that is both elegant and mysterious.
We have written previously about how the ancient Greeks proposed what later became known as the “Golden Mean”, or the “Golden Ratio”, and still later as the “Divine Proportion”. The Golden Ratio can be used to draw Golden Spirals, Golden Rectangles and Golden Triangles, defining many forms and shapes in nature of what we consider beautiful in this world. The ratio is the famous irrational number (continuing infinitely) known as Phi, ϕ , 1.6180339887…. Its inverse ratio – the “Golden Section” – just happens to be 0.6180339887…, which is the exact same number to the right of the decimal. And its square, Phi2, is equal to 2.6180339887…, with the same infinite numeration to the right of the decimal. No wonder the Greek mathematicians found it mysterious and intriguing!
The Golden Ratio is actually defined mathematically by a particular sequence of whole numbers called the Fibonacci Series, after Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci who wrote about it in 1202 AD. The series, beginning from the origin, is 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377… on to infinity. It is formed by adding two adjacent numbers in the series in order to get the next number: 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, etc. And the ratio of any two adjacent numbers converges to the Golden Ratio – which means that the further out in the series you go, the more precise the value of Phi. For example, 13/8 = 1.625 and 377/233 = 1.618025.
Why would a series of numbers formed from the addition of adjacent numbers work out in such a way as to give this mysterious beauty-defining Golden Ratio? And why would the Fibonacci numbers themselves be so important and beautifying and harmonizing in nature, such as being so prevalent in the human form as well as in music? It is because our great Creator knew what He was doing and set it up that way! Our Creator arguably left us with a profound foreshadowing of His great and beautiful purpose of redemption in calling out the bride of Christ, His Church! “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church” (Ephesians 5:31-32). The addition of two “intimate” numbers is a picture of the addition of two “intimate” persons!
Interestingly, you can add any two sequential numbers together and develop a Fibonacci-type series where all numbers in the series are the sum of the two preceding numbers, and their ratio will also converge to the Golden Ratio! For example, starting with 5 and 6 we would get 5, 6, 11, 17, 28, 45, 73, 118, 191, 309, 500, 809…. The ratio of 118/73 = 1.616 and of 500/309 = 1.6181…. No matter what two numbers we begin with, the ratio of two successive numbers in ALL of these Fibonacci-type sequences always approaches a special value – the Golden Ratio, 1.6180339887.
There apparently is a special harmonizing and beautifying principle tucked into the addition of two adjacent whole numbers to form the next one. But starting with the origin itself, we get the perfected analogy. God, who is the Origin that has no origin, the uncaused Cause, created Adam. Then from Adam’s side, the Bible tells us He created Eve (0+1). Then those two, Adam and Eve, became “one flesh” to make the next person (1+1). And the rest is the history of the human race, populating the earth in an ongoing series where “intimate” males and females add together their individual sets of chromosomes to get the next person. 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34….
The amazing beauty and marvels of Creation should indeed remind us and teach us of God. “For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen…” (Romans 1:20a). Though mankind has “changed [or even horribly deformed] the truth of God into a lie” (Romans 1:25a), as we noted earlier, the truth returns. It comes back victorious!’https://creationmoments.com/newsletter/the-truth-can-be-suppressed-but-not-permanently/?mc_cid=2380f1938c&mc_eid=00c1dcff3c
Psalm 139:14 “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made: marvellous [are] thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well.”
‘Do your eyes ever play tricks on you? Our eyes regularly play tricks on us with the help of our brains.
Repeated research has shown that the images we see are not exactly what our eyes see. Our eyes and brains work together to construct the images we call sight. It’s not that our eyes are out to hoodwink us. Most of the time our eyes are working to help us. Working together, our brain and eyes add logical details to the images we see. Each of us has a blind spot in our vision because there are no vision cells where the optic nerve is. Instead of showing us a spot of nothing at the blind point in our field of vision, our brain invents an image from surrounding details. Your brain pulls the same trick on you when you proofread your completed manuscript. While others can still find typos, you may not. Your brain knows what you are saying and so it automatically shows you a repaired version, making many of your typing errors invisible.
Your pupils can reveal your thoughts. Studies show that when seeing unpleasant scenes the pupils retract. Pleasant or interesting scenes cause the pupils to open wider.
Charles Darwin wrote, “To suppose that the eye, with all of its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree.” We don’t often agree with Charles Darwin, but this time we do!’https://creationmoments.com/sermons/the-deceptive-eye-2/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=the-deceptive-eye-2&mc_cid=6c722ff4e8&mc_eid=00c1dcff3c
