The First Climatic Shift
Brothers and Sister, The founding fathers of the various branches that make up science such as astronomy, Chemistry, Biology, Philosophy, Medicine Botany and many others, were strong believers in God, they were creationist. These founding fathers wanted to understand God and His creation, great men such as:
Joseph Lister (Antiseptic Surgery)
Louis Pasteur (Bacteriology)
Sir Isaac Newton (Calculus, Dynamics)
Johann Kepler (Celestial Mechanics, Physical Kepler)
Robert Boyle (Chemistry, Gas Dynamics)
Georges Cuvier (Comparative Anatomy, Vertebrate Paleontology)
Charles Babbage (Computer Science)
Lord Rayleigh (Dimensional Analysis, Model Analysis)
James Clark Maxwell (Electrodynamics, Statistical Thermodynamics))
Michael Faraday (Electromagnetics, Field Theory)
Ambrose Fleming (Electronics)
Lord Kelvin (Energetics, Thermodynamics)
Henri Fabre (Entomology of Living Insects)
George Stokes (Fluid Mechanics)
William Herschel (Galactic Astronomy)
Gregor Mendel (Genetics)
Louis Agassiz (Glacial Geology, Ichthyology)
James Simpson (Gynecology)
Leonardo Da Vinci (Hydraulics)
Matthew Maury (Hydrgraphy, Oceanography)
Blaise Pascal (Hydrostatics)
William Ramsay (Isotopic Chemistry)
John Ray (Natural History)
Bernhard Riemann (Non-Euclldean Geometry)
David Brewster (Optical Mineralogy)
John Woodward (Paleontology)
Rudolph Virchow (Pathology)
James Joule (Reversible Thermodynamics)
Nicholas Steno (Stratigraphy)
Carolus Linnaeus (Systematic Biology)
Humphrey Davy (Thermokinetics)
All of the above men of science were believers in God and in creation. These founding fathers thought that if they were to study God’s creation within the scope of their science that it would draw them closer to God. As Johann Kepler stated “We are thinking God thoughts after him.” To understand something of God’s creation is to understand something of God’s wisdom. Today, men of science have lost their founding fathers true focus and purpose in why science studies creation. They have wandered off the path of true science to follow after a misunderstanding science by altering their purpose and objective from trying to understand God to a new world view of proving there is no God.
Most scientists today don’t believe in miracles, the supernatural or God. They have become non-believing atheists who study God creation, yet do not acknowledge God existence. My research is written for them in the hopes that it may stimulate their intellect and their sense of common reason to see that there is more than what is that we can see, observe and examine. My report is also written for the true believers who have an interest in learning and knowing things not easily explained about the mysteries of God. Whither you are Jewish, Christian or Moslem this report can be looked upon as a theological theory, concept, as an explanation of a dramatic event that altered all life here on earth.
The Holy Scriptures is a divinely inspired book that holds within its contents divine secrets and mysteries of God. The Bible is a book respected and held to be holy, for it contains the words of God and believed as such by billions of people. However, the first five books of the Bible were not inspired by God but are God’s own true words dictated to Moses and written down by Moses. Moses is called the “Prophets of the Prophets” and is also known as the great “Law” giver. Moses is the only person who ever had a unique relationship with God, apart from all the other prophets. For God talked to Moses face to face “And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend” (Ex. 33:11). God dictated to him what to write in the five books that bear his name “The Lord said to Moses, write this on a scroll as a memorial...” (Ex. 17:14) and “And the Lord said unto Moses write thou these words” (Ex. 34:27).
With other prophets God inspired them, moved them, and talked to them in visions and in dreams “Then thou scariest (frighten) me with dreams, and terrifies me through visions” (Job 7:14), and “And Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams” (Dan. 1:7). Daniel declares that God does reveal secrets “But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets (Dan. 2:28). Even the famous account of Joseph being given the gift to understand and interpret dreams which he did explain to Pharaoh of what is to happen over the next seven years (Gen 41:17-32).
God Teaches Science Class
To search the Holy Scriptures is like finding a great treasure; treasures of secrets, of great rewards of enlighten insights about God and his works of Creation. The things that I will talk about now were written down on a scroll long before the word science was coined, yet which we know to be true and understand. When God created the earth he placed it among the stars and solar systems of the universe of emptiness (vacuum of space) and hanged the earth upon nothing “He stretched out the north over the empty place, and hanged the earth upon nothing” (Job 26:7). Remember that these words were written down thousands of years before man ever thought or knew about outer space. It was God that created the stars that make up our various constellations “Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades…” (Job 9:9). On earth God created our atmosphere thus creating our air upon which the clouds are balance (float) between air and water vapors “Dost thou know the balancing of the clouds” (Job 37:16). Through science, more and more are we able to understand the things that God talks about such as the air we breathe can now be measured and we find that air has weight just as God told Job “To make the weight for the winds…” (Job 28:25). The winds we know are the movement of air that has weight.
Yet God tells Job many things that was taken for granted as divine knowledge not yet understood, but is today understood through science. Before Meteorology became a science God was teaching King Solomon of the workings of the winds in relation to weather, time and seasons “The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits” (Eccl. 1:6). Today we know that this wind bring warm air from the south (equator) to the north and gives us summer weather and the cold winds from the north bring winter. These winds create the various trade winds (Jet streams) that give us our weather.
Even the prophet Amos writes of rain “… he that calleth for the water of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth.” (Amos 9:6). This process that Amos writes about is termed in Meteorology as “Hydrologic Cycle” in which water evaporates into water vapors and later, when the temperature changes and the clouds could no longer hold them, fall to earth as rain. We can learn much from the Holy Scripture on subjects that were written down thousands of years ago, but are now being re-discovered, researched and understood. Only God, a divine being of great intellectual capacity, having wisdom, knowledge, and such creating powers to be able to carry out a design of great proportion. The Holy Scriptures shows us, that our world was created by a divine being with a design and purpose and that we are not the result of chance.
In the Beginning
When we open our Bible to the first chapter of the first book called Genesis, we read the very first sentence “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1:1). This is a profound statement the Bible makes, confirming that God is the Creator of all things. No one else is named as Creator but God. In this first passage the verb “to create” from the Hebrew bara is used which here describes the involvement and active workings of God, as he creates. When God talked to Job God ask Job a very interesting question “Where was thou when I laid the foundation of the earth?” (Job 38:4). God here again declares himself as the Creator.
Energy and Matter
Nowhere in the first chapter or anywhere in the Bible does it tell or even suggest or indicate the possibility of a pre-existing energy and matter. We are not born of pre-existing matter but of a living spirit in a living organic body possessing an immortal soul. For raw energy and matter does not have the ability to create, think, reason, plan or act out according to a design. Energy and matter is governed under universal laws and act according to the purpose for which it was created. Energy and matter itself was created and has no power within itself to create but moves and act according to it’s our purpose and ability. It has no ability to sense things or does it hold within its existence any form of intelligence but is only dead, non-living matter. To think or accept an idea that we evolved from a non-living matter insults my intelligent. Only mislead and ignorant people would believe in such an idiotic form of thinking.
I would like to focus on the passage that gives us an important clue in this theological research “And God said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the water 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” (Gen. 1:6-7). The water that God created in verse 6&7 was what we call today as oceans but this great ocean had not yet fallen to earth but was kept in orbit as a canopy or dome surrounding the earth as a protective bubble. Yes, every scientist and creationist has heard of the bubble theory and says that it could not have been, yet with God nothing is impossible. This canopy or dome can be in the form of water vapors in mass amounts that it would flood the earth.
The first body of waters became lakes and rivers and God placed them under the firmament on land and below the earth atmosphere. The second body of water (water vapors) much larger than the first body of water was placed above the firmament between the earth atmosphere and what we today call outer space, or the outer reaches of the earth gravitational pull, something like the van Allen radiation belt which everyone accepts even if they have not personally researched it. So why is it impossible to believe in a vase water vapor belt? This vase water vapor belt was set in position around the earth to protect us from cosmic rays and other rays harmful to us as we now know thanks to the deterioration of our ozone layers. This canopy provided perfect 70 degree temperature for the Garden of Eden, giving Adam and Eve a green house type of weather.
Life on Earth
Six Thousand Years Ago
In the early days of creation man’s life span was that of 900 years average. Now with our protective canopy gone we suffer from all kinds of illnesses and our average life span has been reduced to 70-75 (Ps. 90:10) years of age. With the advancement of medical science there is exception where some people may live to 90 years of age. Since the days of creation to the time of Moses many things have altered man’s condition, as such man was first given a diet of fruits, vegetables and herbs by God “I give you every seed-bearing plant all over the earth and every tree that has seed-bearing fruit on it to be your food…” (Gen 1:29). After the flood receded and Noah and his family when to repopulate the earth they were given permission for the first time to eat meat “Every creature that is alive shall be yours to eat; I give them all to you as I did the green plants. Only flesh with its lifeblood still in it you shall not eat” (Gen. 9: 3-5). After the first climatic shift more rays from outer space fall upon the earth. These rays and the altering of man’s diet, plus the pollution of our air have caused a change in man’s life span from living 900 years to 70-75 years.
First Climatic Shift
All of what I have said thus far sets the stage to make it possible to explain my theory on the account of Noah’s flood, for all the water above the firmament was released upon the earth, and the floodgates of heaven was open “All the fountains of the great abyss burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened” (Gen. 7:11), thus creating large oceans once again “For forty days and forty nights heavy rain poured down on the earth” (Gen. 7:12). This very large body of water that now covers two-thirds of the earth surface, falling on the earth and having a tremendous amount of weight, causing the earth to shift its rotation causing the first climatic shift “Shacketh the earth out of its place” (Job 9:6), altering our weather bringing in the first ice age “Who is the mother of the ice and the frost, which turn the water to stone and freeze the face of the sea? (Job 38: 29-30). We have all seen frozen rivers and lakes but to include the word “sea” in this passage can only refer to the ocean which is a large body of water known as the “sea.” This tremendous amount of water weight could have shifted the earth orbit or its rotation on its axes causing a great change to happen.
The interesting thing is that God told Job that the earth shacked out of its place, within our solar system, thousands of years before science ever came into existence. For such a large amount of water to fall upon the earth had to affect the orbit or rotation of the earth and influence the earth atmosphere creating strong wind movement known as jet streams “Blowing now toward the south, then toward the north, the wind turns again and again, resuming its rounds” Eccl. 1:6-7). This great mass of water that now occupying new space on the surface of the earth causing a change to occur in our atmospheric pressure making our air more dense and humid. This event developed a large formation of ice, covering a large part of the northern hemisphere of the earth. Archaeology and explorers have uncovered evidence, proof that in the upper north regions of the earth (polar ice cap), under frozen ice, once was a tropical forest. Let me ask you now, what happen to our planet that caused this tropical forest to become covered with thick layer of ice? We did find large beasts such as a Mastodon; wonderfully preserved, showing that life did exist in this region at one time.
This shift caused weather patterns to develop bringing new changes in the weather “out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north” (Job 37:9). Then the process hydrologic cycle started “for he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapor thereof” (Job 36:27). “He that calleth for the water of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth” (Amos 9:6). Then the earth ecology was started. Since climatic shift are so devastating, many of the large animals such as Dinosaurs were unable to adopt and died out “See, besides you I made Behemoth that feeds on grass like an ox. Behold the strength in his loins, and his vigor in the sinews of his belly. He carries his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are like cables” (Job 40: 15-18). And “You stirred up the sea in your might; you smashed the heads of the dragons (large beasts or Dinosaurs) on the waters” Psalm 74:13).
Once the flood was over and the water began to recede “Gradually the waters receded from the earth” (Gen. 8:3), forming oceans, underground rivers, and the formation of river currents under the oceans. The earth became exposed more to the rays of the sun then before the flood, creating hot weather and causing the formation of deserts in certain areas of the earth “and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold” (Isa. 30:26). The Sun is expanding.
Every century we are experiencing more hot weather than ever before. God believing Christian Astronomer, astrophysics and other scientist agree today that the sunlight from our Sun is 17 times stronger than it was when the earth was created.
The Earth Refreshed
Today, astronomers teach that beyond the outer reach of our Solar System there is an orbit of large blocks of Ice some measuring miles long that enter from time to time into our orbit and we see them as comets. These’s ice comets enter our orbit and melt because of our Sun bringing fresh water to replenish our earth, and this is part of God plan for sustaining life here on earth. Thousands of years ago there could have been a deluge of water from a number of large ice comets combined with the water that already existed between the firmaments (Gen. 1:6-7), was enough to have created the Oceans on our earth.
This theological concept is not to prove that the earth went through a dramatic change causing an ice age, this is self evident. This research is written for the purpose of explaining what happen by using ancient manuscripts such as the Bible. This research will continue to develop, expand, and unfold as more research information becomes available. The Holy Scriptures talks about river currents under the oceans five thousand years ago and was not discovered by science until fifty years ago. This research paper shows the facts of the truth, wisdom and mysteries that are found in the Holy Scriptures. I don’t care who may believe and accept this concept nor do I care to debate the issue. The facts remain that the Holy Scripture contain Vass amount of information recorded in a time period long before the development of scientific observation, testing, analysis, examinations and the gathering of information. My friends, brothers and sisters of Christ, within the Holy Scriptures we have before us a life time of learning the facts, truth and mysteries from God who exists beyond our compete understanding.
