THE PRE-HISTORIC WORLD WITH DINOSAURS ?

I wonder how many of you remember the question the actor, Matt Damon, asked Sarah Palin, (remember her?). In an interview posted on youtube, Matt Damon asked Sarah Palin if she believed that Dinosaurs used to live on this planet. I would not know if Matt got an answer to that question.
I’m sure most of you know the answer to the question. Yes, of course, Dinosaurs used to roam around this planet. I’m also sure that most of you would not be surprised to find out that some people do not believe this. The question is, where did all those fossils and pre-historic skeletons come from, Jurassic Park?

These people do not believe that the earth is several billions of years old. They claim that the earth is only about six thousand years old according to the creation story in Genesis.
I am glad to inform you that they are all wrong. This misconception is as a result of a misunderstanding of the creation story in Genesis.
Contrary to many people’s preconception, the Bible actually confirms that the earth is much older than the six thousand years through the events revealed in different accounts of the biblical stories of creation, which include Genesis and the books of Job, Proverbs, Psalms, Peter.

In the continuation of this blog, we will reveal new scientific discoveries that were extracted from the inspired utterances concerning the creation story by comparing the parallels between supernatural principles revealed in the scriptures with natural scientific principles observed in nature. This blog gives a clue in the scriptures that provides an accurate age of the universe and how creation began. The Bible begins with the book of Genesis, which states that (Genesis 1: 1-2):
'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….'

As we shall later unravel from the Bible, the first verse of the book of Genesis is a super summary of how the universe came into existence while the second verse refers to a chaotic situation that brought a state of darkness into the universe.
Subsequently, the remaining events of the Genesis story of creation primarily relates to the history of present day human race (The Adamic creation) but references from other parts of the Bible confirm that the earth had been in existence a long time ago. The old Earth later became without form and was drowned in a flood, which preceded Adamic creation.
Thereafter, God gathered the waters that covered the earth to form the Seas and firmament before the dry land appeared. There is still evidence of mysteries concerning the Old World of prehistoric beings that once dwelt on earth before the Adamic creation. These prehistoric beings lost their bodies in a universal destruction and subsequently became disembodied spirits (demons). The evidence of an old world before the creation of Adamic race includes fossils of extinct animals and human beings that existed in the Ice Age several million years ago.

According to other prophecies of the Bible, these prehistoric beings were cut out of time after God withdrew the heavenly lights that sustained life on planet Earth in fierce anger. Due to the absence of lights, darkness covered the earth as lights from the sun and stars were burnt out. Gradually, the Earth became frozen due to absence of heat from solar energy (Job 22:15-17).
This was the reason that the second verse of the first chapter of Genesis suddenly revealed that the earth became without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep. In other words, the earth was already in existence in the second verse of Genesis chapter one but it was shapeless and submerged in a deep flood according to Genesis 1: 2. "And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep."

The English word 'was' comes from the Hebrew word, ‘hayah’, which could also be correctly translated as 'became'. The phrase, ‘the earth was without form and void’ could also have been better translated as ‘the earth became without form and void’. The Hebrew translation of the scripture above suggests a picture of how the earth became shapeless due to the adverse impact of volcanic eruption and it appeared as if heavy substances such as asteroids had collided against the earth. Other scriptural prophecies revealed how the darkness that covered the earth in Genesis was because the lights had been shut from heaven.
There were many events that happened between the first and second verses of Genesis chapter one, which were later revealed in other parts of the Scriptures.
In a prophetic hindsight recorded in Jeremiah 4:23-26, a young man prophetically recalled how the fierce anger of God once destroyed the earth and rendered it without form and void just as described in the picture of the second verse of Genesis chapter one.

"I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens had no light. I beheld the mountains, and lo, they trembled, and the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by his fierce anger."

In hindsight, Jeremiah prophetically recalled the event of God’s judgment on the prehistoric world to figuratively warn a nation how their land could be desolate if they continued to rebel against divine principles.
During the cataclysmic destruction of the prehistoric world, the absence of light from heavenly bodies in a moment of fierce anger also explains what brought darkness upon the deep in the second verse of Genesis chapter one. The solar system collapsed due to absence of light, as the sun and stars were burnt out in fierce anger of the Creator, which caused the absence of light from space. Everything became chaotic!
Due to absence of light from heavenly bodies, there was insufficient heat energy to sustain the Earth. This caused water vapour in the Earth’s atmosphere to condense into a flood that covered the earth. Insufficient heat due to absence of light from heavenly bodies also made the Earth to become too cold for survival until the planet became completely submerged in a deep flood and it was frozen. ‘…. I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens had no light.’

As a result of the cataclysmic destruction, these prehistoric beings that once dwelt on earth became disembodied spirits, from where the word demon was derived.
In fierce anger, God destroyed the sinful world with a cataclysmic flood and the beings in the Old World were cut out of time such that they are now considered pre-historic beings(Job 22:15-17).

"Has thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden? which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overthrown with a flood: which said unto God, Depart from us,: and what can the Almighty do for them?"

The evidence of the volcanic eruption that made the earth formless could be seen in fossils of plants and animals trapped underneath the earth long before the creation of Adamic race.”. This volcanic eruption was recalled in Jeremiah 4:23, when he said:

‘I beheld the mountains, and lo, they trembled, and the hills moved lightly.’

The flood that occurred in the days of Noah was just because of incessant rainfall for forty days but the pre-Adamic flood that cut off the pre-historic world with dinosaurs included a volcanic eruption, which trapped many prehistoric beings of the Old World under the Earth. The chemical energy stored in the fossils of these prehistoric creatures trapped under the earth through volcanic eruption is now being used as fossil fuels. These prehistoric events revealed in other parts of the scriptures were not given in the creation story in Genesis, which mainly summarized how God re-established the present heavens and earth. Thereafter, Adam the new human race was given a charge to subdue the earth considering the threat that led to the destruction of the hominids in the prehistoric world.

As a descendant of Adam, the flood that later occurred in Noah’s days was because it rained heavily for forty days but the sunlight did not stop shining, which resulted in a rainbow phenomenon. Also, the flood in Noah’s days was not accompanied by a volcanic eruption that could have rendered the earth formless and without shape like the prehistoric devastation that made the Earth to become without form and void.
Moreover, there were eight survivors of the flood in Noah’s days unlike the prehistoric flood of the pre-Adamic era, which drowned the old Earth that became without form and void. Without the eight survivors in Noah’s days, the race of Homo sapiens (Adamic creation) could also have perished like the Hominids that previously occupied the earth, which might probably have led to the creation of a new race of humans to replenish the earth. In any event, there is a promise of God’s gracious love that the Earth would no longer be flooded and the rainbow phenomenon is a reminder of this promise.

Lastly, the flood in the days of Noah only affected the Earth but the cataclysm that caused the destruction of the pre-historic world with dinosaurs affected the Earth and heavenly bodies until a new order was re-established along with Adamic creation.
According to the Bible, the next phase of judgment would mark the end of the present heaven and earth like a black hole phenomenon, which would precede the emergence of a new universe that is a perfect paradise (2Peter 3:5-7,10,13).

‘For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heaven were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water. Whereby the world that then was, being over flowed with water, perished:
But the heavens and earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgement and perdition of ungodly men… in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are there in shall be burned up … Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and new earth, where in dwells righteousness.’

With reference to the first verse of Genesis, the summary of creation of the heaven and Earth was flawless until the Earth became without form and void in the second verse of Genesis. This very beginning before the Earth became without form and void corresponded to the creation account of the biblical book of Job, which revealed how the formation of the Earth’s foundations was a beautiful picture such that the angelic host and the morning stars of heaven sang for joy. This account also indicates that the angels and morning stars were already in existence before the Earth was created at the very beginning of the Universe before the Earth became without form and void.
On the other hand, the seven days’ events that later occurred in Genesis after the Earth became without form and void revealed that the Earth was first created on third day before the stars were made on the fourth day of creation. This latter account is a reference to how the chaotic solar system was restored to order beginning with the Earth. This also confirms that the creation story in the book of Job predates the events of the seven days creation account of Genesis because the angelic host and the stars of heaven that witnessed the scene of the Earth’s foundations are certainly much older than the planet Earth (Job 38:4-8).

"Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? …Whereupon are the foundations fastened? Or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had been issued out of the womb."

The word ‘stars’ refer to any heavenly body that can be seen in the sky but the phrase ‘morning stars’ in the context above is a specific reference to the stars that give burning and shinning lights like the sun that brings morning light. Other heavenly bodies are classified as evening stars because they absorb light or give out light through reflection just like the moon and the planets. Unlike evening stars that reflect light, the morning stars are bright stars that emit light through flames of fire just like the Sun and were created in the early beginning of universe before the earth’s foundations were even laid billions of years ago.

My book titled “Unified Field Theory Confirmed With New Scientific Discoveries” reveals how the very beginning of the Earth began in form of matter particles inside a beautiful cloud of dust called nebulae, which whirled in space like a disk. In subsequent posts, we shall also reveal how the many foundations of the Earth in the account of Job’s creation story and other biblical records include the clouds of water vapour that form the Earth’s atmosphere. These many foundations of the Earth include the invisible gravitational force that holds in orbit with other heavenly bodies. Isaiah had prophetically revealed how this gravitational foundation holds the Earth with other heavenly bodies in the scriptures over two thousand years before Sir Isaac Newton discovered that there was a law of universal gravitation (Isaiah 13: 13).

"Therefore, I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger."

Myths and Legends!!

A legend is a story that usually includes an element of truth that has been passed on from generations-to-generations based on historic facts with 'mythical qualities'.
Therefore, a myth is based on a legend or tradition, which could be true stories of actual events and may sometimes not necessarily be a true record of the actual event. Usually, the aim of a myth is to convey the truth and symbolic meaning in a legend or past event regardless of whether the myth is a true record of the actual event or not.
Interestingly, many stories inherited from different traditions concerning how the universe began are myths that often involve supernatural beings.


What If All You Know About Some of these Mythical Stories Was Not True?

When you were young you heard a lot of myths and fables from your friends, older siblings, parents, grandparents and even Sunday school teachers. As you grew older you stopped believing in those myths. You did not only start disbelieving the myths but you also completely rejected the source of most of the myths altogether, which is only natural.

Let us examine some of those myths and fables:

1)Hansel and Gretel
2)The little Red Riding Hood
3)Snow-white and the seven dwarfs
4)Stories about fairies, elves, and gnomes
5)Father Christmas
6)Adam and Eve eating an apple in the Garden of Eden
7)The visit of the three wise men
8)The Earth is 6,000 years old


I’m glad to tell you that every myth listed above is exactly what you have always thought it to be, a myth. We will however focus on both the mythical and historic aspect of the last three alone. The facts that Adam and Eve ate an “apple” or “fish pie” in the Garden of Eden or that three wise men visited baby Jesus in the manger is a mere myth just like many oral accounts of creation from different traditions.
As earlier mentioned, the main aim of mythical stories is not really to ascertain whether the story is a true record of actual event or not but mainly to convey some element of truth and symbolic meaning behind events from the past.

You are about to discover the real truth about the myths concerning the last three incidents mentioned above. Most importantly, you are about to discover that even the Bible confirms what scientists have always believed concerning how our planet is a lot older than the six thousand years contrary to what tradition makes us believe it is.
Before then however, let us examine how the religion that is based on the preconception of man’s tradition is the main phenomenon responsible for the three religious myths mentioned above, which slightly deviate from the true records of actual events.
Throughout the journey of man along the pavement of his mortal existence, there has been an ongoing conflict between science and the religion that is based on traditional preconceived ideas (Matthew 15: 6-7).

…Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, this people draw nigh unto me with their mouth, and honors me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
It is evident from the Scripture above that God is also not interested in religious rites and outward demonstrations like some of us except if it is based on an inward conviction of faith from the heart (Matthew 23:23-27). Religion is more of showmanship and outward demonstration but faith is more of an inward conviction in the heart that is based on the revelation knowledge of truth and the answer of a good conscience towards God (Mathew 23:23).

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
As revealed above, the only time God Himself appreciates religion or tradition is when they are linked with faith that results in justice, mercy and kindness.
Whenever these weightier matters of faith from a good conscience are absent, any religious activity is a mere showmanship or a meaningless ceremony (James 1: 26-27).

If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridle not his tongue, but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

The only two forms of outward demonstrations of an inward belief prescribed as the sacraments of the New Testament are “Water Baptism” and “Holy Communion”, which are merely symbolic because they are done as outward demonstrations of an inward conviction of faith in the death and resurrected body of Jesus Christ.
For instance, the process of going down into water and rising up out of water during baptism is an outward demonstration of faith by identifying with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Without this conviction of faith in the resurrection, water baptism would be a meaningless religious rite or a mere swimming session. According to 1Peter 3:21, the ordinance of water baptism is not for the religious exercise of cleansing the filthiness of the body but it is an outward acknowledgement of an already present inward faith in the resurrection.

The like figure whereunto even baptism also now save, (Not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Romans 6:4 also reveal how the ordinance of baptism is merely symbolic or a pictorial demonstration of an already present inward faith in the resurrection.
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
The Easter Sunday that is celebrated today, 24th April 2011 is all about the faith in this resurrection victory of Jesus Christ over the power of death. Religion without this essential ingredient of faith is merely a tradition.

Oftentimes, religion also conflicts with science just as it clashes with the Scripture of truth. On the other hand, faith always agrees with scriptural truth and the principles of scientific observations that confirm the knowledge of the truth already revealed in nature.
In comparison with religion, faith is God’s method of revealing the knowledge of spiritual truth that conveys His supernatural power but religion is man’s method of searching for spiritual knowledge and supernatural power, which may not necessarily align with principles of truth (Matthew 22: 29).
.
…Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.

Faith is the revelation knowledge of truth from the spiritual laws that are parallel to the knowledge of truth from natural laws that govern the universe (Romans10: 17).
The power of nature is released through the scientific knowledge that applies the principles of natural laws correctly just the same manner that supernatural power is released through the revelation knowledge that is received by faith that is based on correct application of the principles of spiritual laws. This similarity between faith and science becomes more glaring everyday while the conflict between science and religion continues.

Due to the fact that religion is man’s method of searching for spiritual knowledge and power, it has a tendency to be unreliable, inconsistent and evil, which could sometimes conflict with scientific observations of the knowledge of universal truth that is pure, natural and exists largely for the good of mankind.
Faith on the other hand is the invisible response to an invisible supernatural being predicated upon his revealed word and it should not be confused with religion.
Besides, faith only comes by inspiration while religion without inspiration of faith is a mere product of man’s pre-conceived ideas and unreliable among other things.

For instance, man’s pre-conceived religious ideas said that the earth was flat contrary to the Scripture of truth and it persecuted anyone who said otherwise.
This myth that the Earth was a flat surface actually contradicts biblical information because a certain prophet, who lived in the eight century BC said that, He (God) sits enthroned above the circle of the earth...
This prophet, inspired by God, had always known that the earth was circular and his knowledge was later confirmed scientifically (Isaiah 40:22) NIV.

Now to discover the truth about the three religious myths earlier listed above.

1) Religion makes us believe that it was an apple that Adam and Eve ate in the garden of Eden: The truth is that the fruit eaten by Eve and Adam in the Garden was never identified in the Bible. It has recently been discovered that man did not start to cultivate the apple fruit until long after that.

2) The Story of Three Wise Men: The truth about this is that the number of men who visited Joseph and Mary was never mentioned. There’s no documented evidence that they were Three. They could have been only two or more. This is what the bible said in Matthew 2:11,
… behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem…And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother…

Contrary to popular belief, the visit of the wise men did not take place at the manger where the baby was born but in a house that Joseph and Mary moved into after Jesus was born in a Manger. The above verse clearly shows two things; Jesus was not a baby when the wise men visited him, he was a young child of about two years old. How did we know he was about two years old?
Verse sixteen of the same second chapter of the book of Matthew said,
Then Herod… was exceedingly wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.

Interestingly, historical evidence has shown that three men with precious gifts would not normally make a risky journey through deserts all by themselves. Even if they were three or even two, a band of servants and bodyguards would have accompanied them to protect them from bandits on the way. Besides, it is logical to infer that the number of the wise men and entourage was much more than three such that Herod the king also became aware of their presence.

Furthermore, this historic journey of the wise men from the east to Jerusalem must have taken many days because people travelled by camels in those days and not jet planes. Therefore, Joseph and Mary had left the manger with their baby boy and moved into a proper house where the wise men visited the child. The emergency delivery of the Baby in a manger was because there was no room in the Inn when the mother was about to go into labour (Luke 2:7). Consequently, only the shepherds that watched their flocks the night Jesus was born visited the Baby in a manger but the wise men that followed the starlight from the east met the child in the house and not in a manger (Matthew 2: 11).

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him…
As revealed from Herod’s enquiries, the baby was under two years when the wise men reached Jerusalem.
Suffice to say that the concept of three wise men visiting baby Jesus in the manger, which you find depicted in several Christmas Cards, is at best a myth. The true event concerning the visit of the wise that is recorded in the bible is slightly different from the mythical story of what is commonly known. The misconception, albeit not as a completely innocent one, must have arisen from the fact that he was given three gifts.
[References taken from the book title: Nations of the World…How They Evolved].


3) Finally, That The Earth Is Only Six Thousand Years Old: This is probably one of the most damaging mythical misconceptions that man-made religion is responsible for. The Bible would never support this notion. It is clear from the Bible that the Earth is several billions of years old and Adam was not the first man to walk on the face of this earth. This theory that the Earth is about 6,000 years old, made popular by religion, falls flat in the face of incontrovertible Scientific discovery of fossils and other remains of animals that lived millions of years ago.

According to the Bible, there were beings before Adam that became disembodied (demons) after they perished with the Old World, which was the reason Adam was given a mandate to replenish the Earth.

The above theory, that the Earth is older than six thousand years old, would be the subject matter of our next post. Please stay tuned and Happy Easter!!
