False Prophets

Creation and Evolution

And God said,

Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. [Genesis 1:6]

CHAPTER 1

4,5 billion years ago

The age of Heavens and Earth

According to science, the standard model to explain the formation of our Solar System, including Earth, is “The Solar Nebula Hypothesis”. In this model, the Solar system formed from a large, rotating cloud of interstellar dust and gas, composed of hydrogen and helium, created shortly after the Big Bang and some heavier elements ejected by supernovae.

About 4,5 billion years ago, the nebula began a contraction triggered by the shockwave of a nearby supernova, causing the nebula to rotate. As the cloud began to accelerate, its angular momentum, gravity and inertia flattened it into a protoplanetary disk, perpendicular to its axis of rotation. Small perturbations due to collisions and the angular momentum of other large debris created the means by which kilometer-sized protoplanets began to form, orbiting the nebular center. The center of the nebula, not having much angular momentum, collapsed rapidly, the compression heating it until nuclear fusion of hydrogen into helium began. After more contraction, a T Tauri type star ignited and then soon evolved into our actual Sun.

Meanwhile, in the outer part of the nebula, gravity caused matter to condense around density perturbations and dust particles, the rest of the protoplanetary disk beginning separating into rings. In a process known as “Runaway Accretion”, larger fragments of dust and debris then successively clumped together to form planets while the solar wind of the newly formed Sun cleared out most of the material in the original protoplanetary disk that had not already condensed into larger bodies. This is in this manner that Earth originally formed about 4,54 billion years ago to be largely completed within the next 10 to 20 million years.

The first day: The Hadean [4,54 billion years ago]

The first eon in Earth’s history, the Hadean, begins with the Earth’s formation 4,54 billion years ago to be followed by the Archean eon that started 3,8 billion years ago.

From 4,54 billion years ago, the proto-Earth kept growing by accretion until its interior was hot enough to melt the heavy siderophile metals that could be found on its surface. It is only ten million years after that the then proto-Earth evolved into the Earth that we now know and began to form. Having higher densities than the silicates, the heavy siderophile metals of the proto-Earth started to sink in the so coined “Iron Catastrophe” process. Between 2 and 4 billion years ago This so called “Iron Catastrophe” eventually resulted in the separation of a primitive mantle of the Earth and the formation, from what was previously an entirely molten core, of its metallic core, thus producing its layered structure and setting up the creation of the Earth’s magnetic field. From there, volcanic outgassing created the Earth’s “Primordial Atmosphere” that contained almost no oxygen, much of the Earth being then still molten because of its extreme volcanism and frequent collisions with other cosmic bodies, one of these collision being responsible for tilting the Earth at an angle and the formation of the Moon, Earth’s only natural satellite. During the Apollo program, rocks from the Moon’s surface were brought to Earth, radiometric dating of these rocks revealing the Moon being about 4,48 to 4,53 billion years old.

According to the “Giant Impact Hypothesis”, in a period called the “Late Heavy Bombardment” that began about 4,1 billion years ago to conclude around 300 million years later. The Moon originated after a cosmic body the size of Mars struck the proto-Earth at the end of the Hadean. This collision releasing about 100 million times more energy than the impact of the asteroid that caused the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 to 66 million years ago, this was enough to vaporize some of the Earth’s outer layers and melt part of the Earth’s mantle and the impactor, a portion of the Earth mantle material being then ejected into orbit around the Earth. The resulting orbital ejecta then condensed into a single new cosmic body within a period of only a couple of weeks. The moon, the Earth’s only natural satellite, was born.

Even though, due to the large heat flow and geothermal gradient of the Earth, that at the end of the Hadean volcanism was still severe, detrital zircon crystals dated to 4,4 billion years ago show evidence of having undergone contacts with liquid water, thus suggesting that the planet already had oceans or seas at that time. Over time, the Earth cooled down even furthermore to form a solid crust allowing even more liquid water to exist on its surface and sustain life.

The second day: The Archean [3,8 billion years ago]

Since its origin, Earth is often described as having had three atmospheres: a first atmosphere, captured from the solar nebula, composed of light elements from the solar nebula, mostly hydrogen and helium; a second atmosphere rich in volatiles greenhouse gases released by volcanoes, after the “Giant Impact” between the Earth and the smaller proto-planet that gave birth to the moon, but still very poor in oxygen; a third atmosphere, rich in oxygen, that emerged about 2.8 billion years ago, when bacteria began to produce oxygen. While it is believed that oceans may have begun forming as early as 4,4 billion years ago, at the beginning of the Archean eon, as the planet cooled, clouds started to form and rain started to fall on Earth to create even more oceans that covered the Earth.

One of the reasons for interest in the early atmosphere and ocean is that they form the conditions under which life first arose. The first step in the emergence of life may have been chemical reactions that produced many of the simpler organic compounds, including nucleobases and amino acids, which are the building blocks of life. Recent computer simulations have even shown that extraterrestrial organic molecules could have formed in the protoplanetary disk before the formation of the Earth. The next stage of complexity could have been reached from at least three possible starting points: self-replication, an organism’s ability to produce offspring that are very similar to itself; metabolism, its ability to feed and repair itself; and external cell membranes, which allow food to enter and waste products to leave, but exclude unwanted substances. In the early Archean, even if the Earth had cooled significantly enough to sustain life, most present life forms could not have survived in its atmosphere still lacking oxygen and the Earth still lacking an ozone layer. Nevertheless, with candidate fossils dated around 3,5 billion years old, it is possible to affirm that “Primordial Life”, already started to evolve after surviving the “Late Heavy Bombardment” period in hydrothermal vents located below the Earth’s surface and this, from as far back as 4,4 billion years ago when there were still no continents and no land.

Earth’s “Mantle Convection”, this process that still drives plate tectonics today, is the result of a heat flow from the Earth’s interior to the Earth’s surface. Such process results in the creation of rigid tectonic plates at mid-oceanic ridges, plates that are subsequently destroyed, by a process called “Subduction”, that happens into the Earth’s mantle subduction zones. During the early Archean, 3 billion years ago, the mantle of the Earth was very much hotter than today, probably around 1600 °C, so the “Mantle Convection” process was much faster than today resulting in a much faster created tectonic plates. During the Hadean and Archean, subduction zones were also more common than today and, therefore, tectonic plates were much smaller than today. The initial crust of the Earth, formed when the Earth’s surface first solidified to later totally disappeared due to the combination of two main factors and phenomena’s: the fast Hadean plate tectonics creation and destruction process and; the intense impacts of cosmic bodies of the “Late Heavy Bombardment” period. However, it is thought that it was basaltic in composition, like today’s oceanic crust, because little crustal differentiation had yet taken place. The first larger pieces of continental crust, which is a product of differentiation of lighter elements during partial melting in the lower crust, appeared at the end of the Hadean, about 4 billion years ago. What is left of these first small continents are called “Cratons”. These pieces of late Hadean and early Archean crust form the cores around which today’s continents grew.

Like the Dalai Lama would say:

“If science proves religion wrong, it is time to change religion.”

Big_Bang_Theory

In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth

[Genesis 1: 1]

INTRODUCTION

13.798 ± 0.037 billion years

The Age of the Universe

According to theory, the Big Bang occurred approximately 13.798 ± 0.037 billion years ago, which is thus, according to the model, the age of the Universe. In seconds 13.798 ± 0.037 billion years ago, the Universe went from nothing to an extremely hot and dense state rapidly expanding energy cloud. After its initial expansion, the Universe cooled down sufficiently to allow part of the primal energy created and released by the Big Bang to be converted into various subatomic particles, including protons, neutrons, and electrons. Though simple atomic nuclei formed within the first three minutes of the Big Bang giving birth to the Universe, thousands of years three hundred thousands  passed before the appearance of hydrogen, helium and lithium, the first electrically neutral atoms. Later, through gravity, giant clouds of these primordial elements coalesced to form the stars and galaxies allowing heavier elements to be synthetized either within stars or during supernovae. Over time, Over a long period of time , the slightly denser regions of the nearly uniformly distributed matter gravitationally attracted nearby matter to grew even denser and form more gas clouds, even more stars and new galaxies, all the astronomical structures that we can observe today.

The Future of the Universe

While the Universe is still expanding today, there are two possible scenarios to be considered for the future. If, at the time of the Big bang, the mass density of the Universe was greater than its critical density, in time, the Universe will reach a maximum size and then begin to collapse in a “Big Crunch” to finally end in a similar state to that in which it started. On the other hand, if at the time of the Big Bang, the mass density of the Universe was equal to or below its critical density, in time, the expansion of the Universe will slow down without ever stopping expanding. With the accelerating consumption of interstellar gas in every galaxy, stars formation will cease and existing stars eventually burn out leaving only white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes. Very gradually, collisions between these newly created astronomical structures will result in new astronomic masses accumulating into larger and larger black holes. The average temperature of the Universe will then asymptotically approach absolute zero and result in a “Big Freeze.” Moreover, if at the time of the Big Bang, the protons were unstable, then, it is to be expected that, in some distant future, all baryonic matter will ultimately disappear, leaving only radiation and even more black holes. All black holes evaporating, the entropy of the Universe will then increase to the point where no organized form of energy could be extracted from the Universe, thus resulting in an end scenario of the Universe known as “Heat Death.”

The Fundamental Laws of the Universe

The reality of Big Bang theory depends on two major assumptions: the universality of the laws of physic and the existence and reality of the cosmological principle. The cosmological principle states that, on large scales, the Universe being homogeneous and isotropic, an important feature of the Big Bang “spacetime” is the presence of horizons. Since the Universe has a finite age, and light travels at a finite speed, there may be events in the past whose light has not had time to reach us yet, thus creating a limit or “past horizon” on the most distant objects that can be observed today. Conversely, because the Universe is still expanding, and more distant objects are receding ever more quickly in space, light emitted by us today may never catch up to the very distant celestial objects and bodies. This defines a “future horizon”, which limits the upcoming events that mankind will be able to read or influence. Modern observations of the accelerating expansion of the Universe imply that more and more of the currently visible Universe will pass beyond our “actual event horizon” and out of contact with us. The eventual result and consequences of such observable phenomenon and fundamental laws of the Universe is still unknown and highly unpredictable. Will only gravitationally bound systems, such as galaxies, remain together to be subjected to a “Heat Death” finale as the Universe expands and cools? Or will, according to the “Phantom Energy theories”, galaxies, clusters, stars, planets, atoms, nuclei, and matter itself, ultimately be torn apart in a “Big Rip” resulting from the ever-increasing expansion of the Universe? These are questions that we still cannot answer today and probably will never be able to answer as long as we will not be able to travel and communicate in space faster than light.

And What About God?

Nevertheless and contradicting all religious, philosophical and spiritual actual and immemorial beliefs, since its introduction in 1927, the Big Bang theory has been the prevailing model and explanation for the early development of the Universe, the creation of Heavens and Earth. Today, while most everyone and all religions of the world admit and concur with science, some believing the Big Bang theory of the creation of the Universe still implies a “Creator”, while others argue that Big Bang model and cosmology makes the notion of a “Creator” or the “Divine” absolutely unnecessary and superfluous, the Big Bang theory is still one of the liveliest and the foremost areas in the discourse between science and religion. No Creator, no God! This is now the foremost raging debate between creationists and evolutionists. And what is it to say about all these religions, these philosophical, religious and spiritual beliefs? If indeed there is a creator, if indeed the Universe, as well as mankind and all humanity is the result of the intervention of the divine, who is this omnipotent, omnipresent almighty “God” that created Mankind, the Universe, the Heavens and the Earth? Where does he come from and, more importantly, whose “God” is it that is the “Creator” and whom is he speaking too? For the creationists, whatever their nationality, their religious or spiritual background, for the tenants of the existence of a supreme omnipresent and omnipotent being or deity, their “God” and only their “God” is “The Creator” and, for every one of them, especially the more fanatic, they are all, each one of them, ready to die confessing or to kill whoever do not share their faith and, all of this, only to prove their point. While the reality of the Big Bang is well established, it is still a model of the creation to be likely further examined and refined. As for the reality of the “Divine” and “God,” lets solve that issue once and for all.

Beware of the false prophets!
The final countdown | by: Michel Ouellette JMD

Science and technology are about one hundred to two hundred years further down the road into the future than the average person could realize.

Scientific discoveries, geopolitical strategies, economic solutions, military planning, medical advances and educational solutions always resulted from continuous research, study of the past historical models, logical rationalism, all such processes being “left-brain thinking and processing” or “rational thinking and data processing activities” used to approach modern-day life reality. Another way of overcoming the challenges of dealing with the modern daily reality is through what is called “right-brain thinking activities”, such thinking process being tremendously more creative and intuitive than the rational way of thinking and processing information. Both, the “left-brain” and “right-brain” thinking processes, are necessary parts of predicting the future with accuracy. In addition to the information generated by our neurological, physiological and biological pathways, some will argue that it is possible to access information and superior knowledge, from what is often referred to the “spiritual dimension” or “spiritual world”.

Science v. Religion

Our Western culture has often displayed bias against the existence of the possible existence of other or inter-dimensional knowledge. By negating this possibility, science is cutting itself off from an essential part of the reality of many people of the world that truly believe in such a reality and possibility. Even though many of our modern days left-brain thinking scientists are dealing with sciences such as Quantum Physics and String Theory or the existence of at least eleven dimensions, they still refuse to acknowledge the spiritual as a source of valid or acceptable information to provide solutions to the many existential problems that the world is now facing. Whatever the arguments for and against the validity of the spiritual dimension as a source of knowledge and wisdom, we appear to be reaching the end of an era and witnessing the approach of a new one.

The end of days or a new beginning 

A singularity of infinite complexity started a few years ago and we are now at this precise moment where everything is accelerated, where anything and everything imaginable can and often will occur simultaneously. What we are dealing with now is a more and even more precise understanding of the real intrinsic nature of our multi-dimensional universe. This inevitably brings up controversies about age-old concepts such as: the existence of “God”; time; eternity; death; afterlife; heaven; hell; paradise on earth and mankind’s destiny. According to the believers, since the days of the Garden of Eden and the Tower of Babel, mankind has received infinite information and the reliability of this information and the source of this information can be quantified, categorized and discerned. But in our present time we face an interesting dilemma.

the-coming-blood-moon-tetrad

Beware of the false prophets!
The final countdown | by: Michel Ouellette JMD

First, what is a Lunar Tetrad? 

Four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of the lunar eclipses separated one from the other by six lunar months or six full moons!

Kazunori Nagamatsu Touken, Mark Blitz, John Hagee and Co.

The Japanese Tendo Sect is predicting the “End of the World” to happen any time between today and June 2014.

Two Christians pastors, Mark Blitz and John Hagee are predicting the “Second Coming of Christ” to happen around the same date and, the “Last Judgment Day to happen somewhere in 2015. 

For the year 2014-2015, NASA and astronomers are predicting a natural recurring natural astrological phenomenon: a Lunar Tetrad…

The “Blood Moon” of John Hagee

In astronomy, all the full moons have names that will typically coincide with the months or seasons of the year and one of the most famous names for the moon is the “Hunter’s Moon”, the full moon immediately following the “Harvest Moon”.

People from the Northern Hemisphere of the world who, soon after sunset have the opportunity to observe this autumn full or near full moon rising often referred to the “Hunter’s Moon” as the “Blood Moon” because of her early morning brownish and reddish colors that could not be seen when observing the moon overhead. 

The apocalyptic heresy of Blitz and Hagee

Two Christian pastors, Mark Blitz and John Hagee, use the term “Blood Moon” to apply to the full moons of the upcoming lunar Tetrad of 2014-2015. Mark Blitz and John Hagee speak of the upcoming lunar Tetrad as representing a fulfillment of this alleged Biblical prophecy: “The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood before the great and dreadful day of the LORD comes.” – Joel 2:31

According to our now famous and infamous lunatics, April 2014 will be a decisive time for mankind. The year 2014-205 will mark both historical and biblical events: the “Second Coming” of Christ and the “Judgment Day”. There will be apocalyptic events such as described by Daniel and John, the notorious biblical writers.

The syncretic belief of Japanese Tendo

According to the Japanese Tendo Sect, the “End of the World” or “Hakuyo” will happen on April 15, 2014.

Three prophets that will be proven wrong once again

According to the American pastors Blitz and Hagee, April 15th 2014 will not mark the “End of the World”, but the return Jesus-Christ on earth. Still according to Blitz and Hagee, on October 8, 2014 as well as on April 4 and September 28, 2015, there will be further signs to be observed in the sky [Blood moons] as testimony for the Last Judgment Day and the End of the World.

My guess is that the Tendo Sect members and their leader Kazunori Nagamatsu Touken were not fluent enough in English to fully read or understand the content of the bestseller book written by Hagee in 2013. 

Whatever, Let’s pray the Lord and ask the “Happy Bunch” for their benediction.
