Archaeologists uncover proof that Bethlehem existed centuries pre-Jesus
The tiny clay seal is imprinted with three lines of ancient Hebrew script that include the word "Bethlehem"."This is the first time the name Bethlehem appears outside the Bible in an inscription from the First Temple period," the years 1006 BC to 586 BC. The coin-sized remnant of the seal proves that Bethlehem - first mentioned in the Book of Genesis - was indeed a city in the Kingdom of Judah, and possibly also in earlier periods
In his excellent book "The Holotropic Mind", Stanislav Grof says : To believe that human beings evolved from some primeval scum or chemical ooze from some ocean water and the random interactions of atoms and molecules is like believing that a tornado blew through a junkyard and accidentally created a 747 jumbo jet. And a single human being is infinitely more complex than any aircraft
C-14 is everywhere it shouldn't be. Unless from a secondary source, like contamination or neutron capture, anything millions of years old should have NO Carbon-14.
However diamonds are virtually impervious to contamination, and the world's vast fossil fuel deposits are not radioactive. Therefore neutron capture and contamination cannot explain the significant quantities of radiocarbon in such specimens.
Scientists consistently find C-14, as reported in 2011 in the journal PLoS One of an allegedly 80-million year old mosasaur(soft tisse as well), and as reported elsewhere in natural gas, limestone, fossil wood, coal, oil, graphite,marble, ten dinosaurs, and even in supposedly billion-year-old diamonds.
There are in the human body 600 muscles, 1000 miles of blood vessels, and 550 arteries important enough to name. The skin, spread out, would cover 16 square feet. It has 1,500,000 sweat glands which spread out on one surface, would occupy over 10,000 sq. ft., and would cover 5 city lots, 20 x 100 ft. The lungs are composed of 700,000,000 cells of honey comb, all of which we use in breathing,--equal to a flat surface of 2,000 square feet, which would cover a city lot. In 70 years, the heart beats 2,500,000,000 times, and lifts 500,000 tons of blood. The nervous system, controlled by the brain has 3,000,000,000,000 nerve cells, 9,200,000,000 of which are in the cortex or covering of the brain alone. In the blood are 30,000,000 white corpuscles, and 180,000,000,000,000 red ones. Almost 3 pints of saliva are swallowed every day, and the stomach generates daily from 5 to 10 quarts of gastric juice, which digests food and destroys germs. Two gallons daily! It's easy to see that the "very hairs of our heads are numbered,"--about 250,000!
One is micrometers wide, there other is so large it's beyond human comprehension.Two very similar patterns but in two very different natural forms, one in space the other on Earth. Why else would there be such a similar pattern? Because they had the same Creator.
According to the Bible, after Jesus was crucified, there was a great earthquake and it became dark for hours. And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. — Mark 15:33A purported Letter from Pontius Pilate to Tiberius claimed the darkness had started at the sixth hour, covered the whole world and, during the subsequent evening, the full moon resembled blood for the entire night. Other accounts by many seperate historians and eyewitnesses corroborate the account. Some have tried to explain it away as a natural phenomenon such as a solar eclipse. However, Jesus was crucified at Passover which takes place during a full moon, and an eclipse requires a new moon. This was a supernatural event..
Scientists have known for a long time that space actually stretches. It stretches much like stretchable fabric, very similar to nylon panty hose. Have you ever heard the phrase that scientists use, "the fabric of space"?
Did you know the Bible said this long before scientists understood it?
' It is I who made the earth and created man uponit. I stretched out the heavens with My hands ' Isaiah 45:12
' You have forgotten the LORD your Maker,Who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth' Isaiah 51:13
So the prophet Isaiah used scientific language (space stretching) to describe God's creation of the Universe. Since God really did create the Universe and gave us the Bible to know about our origin and to know about Him, we shouldn't be surprised to find such clues hidden in His Word. We may not understand exactly how God created the Universe before Jesus returns, but its important we understand that He did create it, and left us the Bible to know how we got here and to know the God who created us
In 2005, soft tissue material was found in a Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil. In 2007, a North Carolina State University paleontologist took theTyrannosaurus Rex photos to the right of original biological material shown here.
Now, in 2013, the dinosaur soft tissue discoveries include DNA, blood vessels, collagen, osteocytes, hemoglobin, red blood cells, and various proteins, as published in many leading scientific journals, including Nature, Science, PNAS, PLoS One, Bone, Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, which have published peer-reviewed papers confirming the discovery of original biological material and even of dinosaur soft tissue from many dinosaurs and dinosaur-layer creatures including from T. Rex., hadrosaur, titanosaur, triceratops, Lufengosaur, mosasaur, and Archaeopteryx.
How can so many soft tisse samples exist if they are supposedly millions of years old?
Evolutionary theory requires millions of years for evolution to take place. Remove millions of years and it becomes a serious problem.
