The BibleGraph: Pre- Internet Search Engine!

BIBLE-GRAPH 1940's - 1950's: Here is a "Biblegraph", from my Wonders of the Bible collection. If someone needed Biblical guidance, they would choose the topic, along with the day of the week, and the Biblegraph would give the precise Biblical scripture (book, chapter and verse) to read for that day. It served the same function as an internet search engine -- before the age of electronics! It also helped to get people through difficult times and situations with Biblical advice. God Bless You!

Christian Tract Art

ISAIAH 45:22 -- "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else." / You won't find many museums or galleries giving exhibits of the lowly paper religious tracts that have been printed in the millions upon millions. But I do not ignore them! I find their art work and design to be celebrated and seen. Here is one from the World Missionary Press. These are what are known as "throw aways" because so few people would keep them. I have religious ephemera going back over 150 years in my Wonders of the Bible collection. God Bless You -- Today and Every Day! -- AND -- Love everyone you meet … just as Jesus Christ loves YOU!

3-D Super Xograph Post Card

LUKE 18:16 -- "… Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God." Here we have a 3-D "super xograph" post card from the 1950's - 1960's. The title is "Children Praying". These Christian-themed post cards were very popular back in the mid 20th century; and people would send them and trade them between each other. Today, they are collectibles, and many are still available online that have never been used. May God Bless You -- Today and Every Day! Psalm 4:8 tells us: "I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety."

NASA Lunar LASER Ranging Experiments: Proof of Young Earth?


I am now back home and resting after my inaugural "NASA Lunar LASER Ranging Experiments: Proof of Young Earth?" presentation at the second annual Creation Celebration Conference in Newark, Delaware. Shown here in this photo (taken before I left), I am holding a lunar meteorite moon rock sample (NWA5000) in tweezers, next to a retroreflector held in an Edmund Scientific optics mount, on top of a Thor Labs post (I saw my first laser beam and 3D hologram at Edmunds showroom waaaay back in 1968!).

The presentation was very well-received, and I hope that -- at the very least -- I was able to demystify the technical aspects of the Lunar Laser experiments, as well as the project itself: What were the Apollo Laser experiments? What is a Laser? What is a retroreflector? How do they work? Where are they located on the moon? How does it all tie in to the Biblical account of creation?

Along with the technical, I also took the liberty to compare the complexities and variables of a 4.5 billion year age of the earth (old earth), and then went on to show the mathematical simplistic beauty of God's placement of the moon on day four of creation for a young earth. Here I am referring to a "young earth" as the creation of our universe in six, twenty-four hour days, six-thousand years ago via the literal chronology of the Christian Holy Bible.

Whether one is learning about the theories behind an “old earth” at 4.5 billion years, or a “young earth” at circa 6,000 years, it nearly always appears to be a complex, complicated affair. Biblical based proponents spout just as many complexities and variables as our non-Biblical counterparts. I've seen examples of both sides giving the moon multiple thousands upon thousands of miles of varying distances.

The main thrust of my own presentation was to ask the question "what if the moon is right where God originally placed it?". With this viewpoint, combined with the data compiled by the NASA Lunar Laser Ranging Experiments, the moon would have had a gain in distance of only 800 feet / 244 meters since creation. Therefore, an average distance of 239,000 miles / 384,633 kilometers at creation remains an average distance of 239,000 miles / 384,633 kilometers today.

As a 2x MENSA organization keynote address speaker I will say this: "It just makes sense".

And, until some other theory makes more sense (to me), I'm sticking with it. :)

I then gave a short demonstration utilizing a low-power laser with both a plane mirror and a retroreflector. I included a laser plasma tube for attendees to examine, and used it to explain how a gas laser works. There were also 3D laser holograms and various examples of micro / nano scripture on display. Attendees then had the opportunity to "Touch the Moon" ... a very popular activity utilizing a lunar meteorite moon rock ... a piece of the famous NWA5000. Not many people can say that the have touched the moon! The moon is God's creation, too!

My presentation was one of about a dozen creation based presentations throughout the day.  There are plans for a third annual conference in 2019.

John Proclaiming the Messiah

May GOD BLESS YOU ... Today and EVERY Day. Today's selection is a microphotograph titled: "John Proclaiming the Messiah", by John Stovin in the year 1859. The microphotograph is of an engraving from an earlier period. It is in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. The microphotograph is so small that it has to be viewed through a microscope. Part of my Wonders of the Bible collection. Always know that Jesus loves you. You are never alone. You are always safe in his loving arms. Day ... and night.

Miniature Gutenberg Bible

TINY BIBLE: One of the smallest versions of the great Gutenberg Bible. The original was much larger and was printed by Johannes Gutenberg in the 1450s. It is noted as the first book printed using movable metal type in Europe. This miniature version is a modern day printing. I continue to search the world over for the smallest Biblical scripture ever made. Some of it is printed, some is hand written, and some is through the use of various methods such as microphotography, and nano technologies. All part of bringing the Wonders of the Bible to YOU. May GOD BLESS YOU ... Today and Every Day! AND ... Remember to show love to everyone you meet ... just as Jesus Christ loves YOU!
