This is very interesting (on a scientific and religious level) and it will probably get locked.. but I just had to share! thumbsup.gif

NASA and The Bible

Did you know that the space program is busy proving that what has been called "myth" in the Bible is true? Mr. Harold Hill, President of the Curtis Engine Company in Baltimore, Maryland, and a consultant in the space program, relates the following development :

"I think one of the most amazing things that God has done for us today happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at Greenbelt, Maryland. They were checking out where the positions of the sun, moon, and planets would be 100 years and 1,000 years from now. We have to know this so we won't send up a satellite and have it bump into something later on in its orbits. We have to lay out the orbits in terms of the life of the satellite and where the planets will be so the whole thing will not bog down."

They ran the computer measurement back and forth over the centuries, and it came to a halt. The computer stopped and put up a red signal, which meant that there was something wrong with either the information fed into it or with the results as compared to the standards.

They called in the service department to check it out, and they said, "What's wrong?' Well, they found there is a day missing in space in elapsed time. They scratched their heads and tore their hair.

There was no answer.

Finally a Christian man on the team said, "You know, one time I was in Sunday School, and they talked about the sun standing still".

While they didn't believe him, they didn't have an answer either, so they said, 'Show us'.

He got a Bible and went to the book of Joshua where they found a pretty ridiculous statement for any one with 'common sense'. There they found the Lord saying to Joshua, "Fear them not, I have delivered them into thy hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee." Joshua was concerned because he was surrounded by the enemy, and if darkness fell, they would overpower them. So Joshua asked the Lord to make the sun stand still! That's right...'The sun stood still and the moon stayed and lasted not to go down about a whole day!' (Joshua 10:12-13)

The astronauts and scientists said, 'There is the missing day!' They checked the computers going back into the time it was written and found it was close but not close enough. The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua's day was 23 hours and 20 minutes... not a whole day.

"They read the Bible, and there it was 'about (approximately) a day' These little words in the Bible are important, but they were still in trouble because if you cannot account for 40 minutes, you'll still be in trouble 1,000 years from now. Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits.

"As the Christian employee thought about it, he remembered somewhere in the Bible where it said the sun went BACKWARDS. The scientists told him he was out of his mind, but they got out the Book and read these words in 2 Kings that told of the following story:

Hezekiah, on his deathbed, was visited by the prophet Isaiah who told him that he was not going to die. Hezekiah asked for a sign as proof. Isaiah said 'Do you want the sun to go ahead 10 degrees?' Hezekiah said, 'It is nothing for the sun to go ahead 10 degrees, but let the shadow return backward 10 degrees' Isaiah spoke to the Lord, and the Lord brought the shadow ten degrees BACKWARD!

"Ten degrees is exactly 40 minutes!

Twenty-three hours and 20 minutes in Joshua, plus 40 minutes in Second Kings make the missing day in the universe!"

Isn't it amazing?


I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

Thanks Spartan.... But actually I have to Burst my Own Bubble...

This was a story sent to me by a colleague... and I thought it was so interesting that I posted it here.. before finding out facts...   sad.gif

I have found evidence that it is actually a hoax.... and interesting story.. but not proof that it is true.  

I will keep on investigating... but as it looks for now... it seems to be a Hoax... Sorry Guys!

When I am wrong... I say I am Wrong!  wink2.gif

Hey ... it was interesting reading anyway!   tongue.gif

I unlocked it due to a request by Nxt2HVn, as long as there is no flaring up it should be open to allow response, my response to religious threads though will usually be to lock them immediately so flaring can not begin.  Better to be safe that way, than have people leave the forum due to religious comment.

I have said before and will again, All religions are essentially the same, they all worship the same being, just in different ways.

I agree.. everyone has the right to their beliefs... but should be open to listen to what others believe...

I like to post my views and beliefs... and others can take it or leave it.

Different views and beliefs are what makes the world an interesting place... I for one like to hear what make others tick... and why they believe the way they do.

As far as my religious views go ... I can only say I believe my way because of Faith.   thumbsup.gif   Some may not understand that .. and that is okay... I don't understand a lot of why people believe they way they do... but that's what makes it interesting to hear.  cool.gif

I might also add.. that the above story is a Hoax... but the text from the Bible is true... and is stated in the Bible ... 2 Kings and the story of Hezekiah.

Someone had a lot of time on their hands... to take actual text from the Bible to make a bogus story.... But I have to give whoever it was kudos for being that creative... I know I couldn't have made it up.
