Creation - True or False?

Let's see if we can make a logical decision. The 1st law of thermodynamics states that it is impossible to create something from nothing. Energy or matter can not be created nor destroyed. From this we can conclude that all the matter and energy in the universe either always existed or that some force broke this law of physics and created everything. The 2nd law of thermodynamics proves that the universe could not have always existed because, eventually over time, all of the stars would have used up all of their energy and the universe would become cold. These are laws of physics, not my opinion. This is science. The universe began by the Big bang or God's creation. If you think that the universe came from nothing and created everything, then you believe in magic, and your magic has the power to defy the laws of physics. Life began: Scientists are trying to create life from non-life and they are struggling with all of the design involved with DNA, RNA, and protein etc. to make it happen. Scientific fact: Life always comes from life and never from non-life. The most intelligent minds in the world cannot create life from non-life and they even have the blueprint to copy all the information from. The process of life comes from DNA, RNA, protein and enzymes working together. Take away one of the components and it won't work. They would have to be created simultaneously. Our creator designed life with no blueprints.

Let's assume that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old and not approximately 6 to 10 thousand years to give you the benefit of the doubt. Let's imagine that an automobile or a computer washed up from the ocean or pushed up from the dirt and rocks. It's never going to happen no matter how many billion years you tack on to the time line. It took an intelligent designer to create these things. Now try to imagine a robot, which is more complex than a car or a computer that can walk, talk, see and make decisions. A human, a rose, a fish or a dog is more complex than a robot. All living things have DNA that is made up of 4 chemicals in a long complex chain, very similar to the binary code (ones and zeros) of a computer that is 3 billion bits long. We share approximately 50% of the same DNA code as a banana but that doesn't mean we evolved from a banana. It's so complex that the most intelligent human minds don't know the significance of most of the code. The DNA information in life is a detailed list of all the properties, actions and makeup, and can only be the result of a Super intelligent designer. DNA is the specific detailed written instruction for how to build every protein in every living thing on Earth. On June 26, 2000, President Clinton congratulated those who completed the human genome sequencing by saying, "Today we are learning the language in which God created life".

In my opinion, these things are the result of Super-intelligence and not random chance. If you believe that random chance and evolution created the universe and all life on Earth than you have MUCH MORE FAITH than I do.

Is Jesus a real person?
There were several accounts of historical information written outside the bible that proves Jesus was a real person. These people were not Christians and some were even anti-Christian and had negative things to say about Him. Flavius Josephus was a Jewish historian that mentions Jesus and his brother James, King Herod, John the Baptist and Pontius Pilate condemned him to be crucified. Cornelius Tacitus wrote about how Nero burned Rome and inflicted the most exquisite tortures on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. He said that Christians suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilate. Pliny the Younger specifically mentions and describes the beliefs and practices of Christians in Asia Minor, and asks Trajan's advice about what action to take against them. Lucian wrote "The Christians, you know, worship a man to this day—the distinguished personage who introduced their novel rites, and was crucified on that account....You see, these misguided creatures start with the general conviction that they are immortal for all time, which explains the contempt of death and voluntary self-devotion which are so common among them; and then it was impressed on them by their original lawgiver that they are all brothers, from the moment that they are converted, and deny the gods of Greece, and worship the crucified sage, and live after his laws. All this they take quite on faith, with the result that they despise all worldly goods alike, regarding them merely as common property". Celsus wrote "Jesus had come from a village in Judea, and was the son of a poor Jewess who gained her living by the work of her own hands. His mother had been turned out of doors by her husband, who was a carpenter by trade, on being convicted of adultery. Being thus driven away by her husband, and wandering about in disgrace, she gave birth to Jesus, a bastard. Jesus, on account of his poverty, was hired out to go to Egypt. While there he acquired certain (magical) powers which Egyptians pride them on possessing. He returned home highly elated at possessing these powers, and on the strength of them gave himself out to be a god", and The Talmud records many events about Jesus and Mary, though very negative, showing he is very real.

The biggest extracurricular writings come from Islam and the Koran. Jesus is mentioned 25 times in the Koran. I will quote a few. "[2.253] We have made some of these apostles to excel the others among them are they to whom Allah spoke, and some of them He exalted by (many degrees of) rank; and we gave clear miracles to Isa (Jesus) son of Marium, and strengthened him with the Holy Spirit. And if Allah had pleased, those after them would not have fought one with another after clear arguments had come to them, but they disagreed; so there were some of them who believed and others who denied; and if Allah had pleased they would not have fought one with another, but Allah brings about what He intends. [3.45] When the angels said: O Marium, surely Allah gives you good news with a Word from Him (of one) whose name is the '. Messiah, Isa (Jesus) son of Marium, worthy of regard in this world and the hereafter and of those who are made near (to Allah). [5.110] When Allah will say: O Isa (Jesus) son of Marium! Remember My favor on you and on your mother, when I strengthened you I with the holy Spirit, you spoke to the people in the cradle and I when of old age, and when I taught you the Book and the wisdom and the Taurat and the Injeel; and when you determined out of clay a thing like the form of a bird by My permission, then you breathed into it and it became a bird by My permission, and you healed the blind and the leprous by My permission; and when you brought forth the dead by My permission; and when I withheld the children of Israel from you when you came to them with clear arguments, but those who disbelieved among them said: This is nothing but clear enchantment". Even though the Koran is full of half-truths and hatred, it clearly defines the real Jesus, the Bible and more, testifying to the truth that Jesus is a real.

Today's calendar that is shared by 99% of the world is the Gregorian calendar (originally the Julian calendar) and shows A.D. (Anno Domini) translated as In the year of our Lord" and B.C. meaning before Christ. In the last few years there have been attempts to change the words to BCE or before common era in an effort to remove the connection to Jesus.

The Bible is a historic document. It is just like many other historical documents except that it has first hand accounts from the people who personally knew Jesus.

Does archeology prove or disprove the bible?
The Dead Sea Scrolls are 2000 year old copies of the Old Testament that are accurate and the same as the copies in existence today. The slight differences in language or misspellings do not change the true meaning of the words. A tablet written in stone in the City of David with the inscription "House of David" has been found in old Jerusalem. Sodom and Gomorrah has been discovered with many balls of half-burned sulfur scattered over the area of the ruins. These are a few of the many discoveries and nothing has been found that disproves the bible.

Can the bible predict the future?
If we look at the recent past we can see some history that has happened in my lifetime and possibly your lifetime too. There are many predictions (prophecies) in the bible that have happened 2000 or 3000 years ago but it would be hard to prove. If we look at how Israel became a nation in a day on May 14th, 1948, we see a prophecy from thousands of years ago happening right in front of our eyes. The Jews would return to their homeland has been happening at an increasing rate since the end of World War 1. The desolate land of Israel would again blossom and be fruitful in the last days. If you look at the before and after photos of the desert of Israel you can see a dramatic difference. Knowledge and Travel will be greatly increased is obvious because of all the inventions that have happened in the last hundred years of so. The mark of the beast is something that could only happen with the help of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and computers which are being used in grocery stores and department stores all over the world now. Additionally these tiny electronic chips have been inserted in the skins of animals and humans for the purpose of identification and/or medical reasons. It's only too soon before everyone is required to have one implanted in their right hand or forehead to buy or sell. It would be nearly impossible to make a fake ID because your DNA information on the chip would identify you.


Sex
It's obvious to most people that a man has been designed to have sex with a woman. It's also obvious that monkeys, dogs and cats, etc. have been made the same way. Sexual sin is the most common sin of all. It doesn't take much intelligence to understand that 2 male rats or 2 female cows don't fit together. To take the perversion another step, we know that with anal sex it is much easier to spread HIV AIDS than it is with vaginal sex. An example of this fact is from porn star John Holmes who died of AIDS in 1988, and his wife tested negative for the disease. It is transmitted through blood and semen. Vaginal sex rarely causes any tearing or blood, but anal sex almost always does. If a man and his wife only have sex with each other, venereal diseases would be nonexistent because that is God's purpose.

Did Jesus actually die on the cross?
 

Judge and Jurry
Of course I was not around 2000 years ago to experience any of the events first hand so I can only look at circumstantual evidence and other peoples testimonies. The Bible was written by people that were there and saw. Many other evidence outside the Bible clearly shows some of these events to be true. If I was the judge (or jury) in a court of law in America, I would believe way beyond a reasonable doubt that the bible is guilty of being true.

My personal experience is that God has blessed my family very much. I thank Him daily for my life exactly as it is even thought I don't feel like I deserve it.
