    T8 and all, this video is a minute long.  It is a time lapse of the lunar eclipse of December 10th, 2011.  The sun is about to rise behind the photographer, and the moon is setting in front of him.  If the sun is what’s lighting the moon, and the earth is what’s blocking part of the sunlight to make the shadow on the moon, how on God’s flat ea…[Read more]

    D4T:  Could it not have been said ONCE, “all around the round earth?” Or “from all over the globe”? Or something similar? Why not?

    But 28 times in the scriptures that all represent my view and somehow it is supposed to support your view? Please explain.

    Gene:  Mike…you ask why does the earth look so small when view from the moon… IT BECAUSE OF THE DISTANCE FROM THE OBJECTS, THAT CAUSES THEN TO APPEAR SMALLER. FIRST GRADE LEVEL QUESTION. THE EARTH IN THE PICTURE FROM THE MOON IS “EXACTLY” RIGHT AS SEEN FROM THAT DISTANCE. WHICH ONLY SUPPORTS THE MOON LANDING PICTURES.

    Nick: Hi Mike,

    Did you think that he was not a prophet but a god?

    I think I’m still waiting for you to tell me who said the words in the following passage.  Jesus?  God speaking through him?  The Spirit speaking through him?  Which one, Nick?

    John 6:35-40

    Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry,…

    Gene:  Tell us why does it take two Gryos to make an auto pilot work, if as you say only one is needed.

    I didn’t say a word about autopilots.  I was only trying to figure out if you understood how a gyro works, and that it is rigid in space.  So to continue, the gyro in a plane starts level with the runway.  It will remain level with that part…[Read more]

    D4T:  Earth’s gravitational pull:

    (E)……………………………… <Extends to here

    Moon’s gravitational pull:

    (M)…… <Extends to here

     

    So now to put it perspective, the moon must be at least as close as the distance at which its gravitational field extends.

    D4T:  Mike, actually my point was that the moon would have to be in that close to the earth to exert any gravational pull. It would obviously be overwhelmed by the gravitational pull of the earth. (Which you can see on the scale as earth’s gravitational pull goes way beyond the moon!)

    Thanks for allowing me to clarify that! Maybe now it can s…

    Nick: Hi Mike,

    Do you think God had a standard method for speaking through His servants, the prophets?

    I think I know you too well, as you did EXACTLY what I said you would do a couple of pages back, when I asked you to tell me who said the words in four particular verses of John 6.  😀

    Gene:  The ship you posted is going laterally not longitudinal from shore easily seen.

    What does that even mean, Gene?  Do you think the earth only curves on imaginary lines we call longitude, but not on the imaginary lines we call latitude?  You don’t think the earth is a cylinder, do you?  Because if it’s a ball, the curvature will be the sam…[Read more]

    Nick: Hi Mike,

    Are you done yet?

    Not even close.  Hey Nick, I have an assignment for you.  Do a little research and try to find out how the moon (or any object) can eclipse from the top down – in respect to the object that is causing the eclipsing shadow.

    Let us know what you find, okay?  Thanks.

    D4T:  What? Yes, Jewish people DID accept Yeshua! Hello, the disciples, remember them? The thousands in Acts 21:20? Ring a bell?

    Hey Admin, the images are still following the next two or three posts also.  I have to keep detaching images that I used 3 posts prior.

    Gene:  …people have known for centuries the earth is a sphere.

    Well, at least you’re saying “centuries” now instead of “millenia”… which makes me think the lesson on Eratosthenes paid off.  I also noticed in your last post you mentioned the drop as “inches and feet”, instead of insisting it was 24 inches for every mile, so that’s also a step i…[Read more]

    D4T:  I 2nd the vote to fix the “going back to the beginning” after posting! Kind of annoying!

    Yeah, what’s up with that T8?  The pages already load slower than molasses in winter.  We don’t want to have to load an extra one each time.  🙂

    Gene:  Mike ,…where do you get the idea gyros prove the earth is flat at. They prove np such thing, what they only prove is that they resist change to what they are attached to.

    Gyros are rigid in space, Gene.  So if you start one spinning on a perfect level on the ground, it will remain in the same position (perfectly level to the ground) no mat…[Read more]

    D4T:  If the moon is close enough to effect earth it must necessarily be well within the stronger gravitational pull of the earth to do so…

    Since the moon is much smaller, approx 1/4 the size, and much lighter (less mass – 80 times less), how then does it maintain its distance? Finally, a question that can’t be answered by “gra…

    T8:  Given the moon’s speed, if it slowed down it would hit the earth because its curve would be more steep and the curve would intersect the earth. If it sped up, it would escape Earth’s gravity.

    Google “moon receding from earth”.  Then Google “earth spin slowing down”.  Read up on those things, and see if you can figure out how they don’t align…[Read more]

    No Gene.  Jesus said “I will raise it up”, and God is the one who raised Jesus from the dead.  Jesus spoke his own words in the scriptures, just like every other prophet of God did.  God speaking through someone doesn’t mean God’s own voice came out of someone else’s body.  It means the pe…[Read more]
