A Voice in the
Weekend News Today (3/12/02) had an interesting article about theories on time travel.
This accompanied another article (for the same date) speaking of school districts deciding cases regarding teaching Evolution and/or being allow to include teachings about "Intelligent Design".
While Evolution is an unprovable 'theory', the pagan world teaches it as 'fact'; because any other options would have to, of necessity, leave the door open for the possibility of the existence of a "supreme being", the Most High. And as Star Trek's Jean Luc Picard was known for proclaiming, we just CANNOT HAVE THAT!! Man is doing a 'good job' of getting rid of any antiquated notions of a "God" who is supreme over us. We are our own gods. As the serpent hissed to Eve 6000 years ago, "..you will be like God.." (Gen3:5)
But Einstein's theory and formula E=MCı, when including the speed of light, includes a "time" element. This formula is the basis for nuclear bombs and energy. We know they work, in terms of the 'energy' quotient. And experiments have been done with atomic clocks, where one is stationary, and the other flown around in a jet, and when the one that was in the jet comes back to join the stationary one, they show different times. So, time also -is- variable. But to what extent?
Why does any of this matter? Well, what is one of evolution's primary "proofs" for itself? The late Carl Sagin's favorite expression "[b]illions and [b]illions of years", billions of light-years... this, the 'size' of the universe. The theory that the light of the stars we see today only barely left those stars billions of years ago, because that's how long it would take their light to reach us, at the speed of light as we know it. And so, the evolutionists scoff that, if the heavens and earth are only 6000 years old, we shouldn't be able to see these distant stars yet, because there hasn't been enough time for their light to reach us. And since we -can- see them, that, to them, is "proof" of an "old" universe.
One counter-theory I heard some ten years ago from a creationist was how the Law of Entropy might be related to the speed of light... the aspect that all things are continually in a state of steady deterioration... and how this could very-well also apply to the speed of light. The suggestion that, when God created the universe 6000 years ago, the speed of light was multiplied times faster than it is today. After all, Evolution's primary foundation is the Law of Uniformitarianism: "..all things continue as they were since the beginning of creation". These, the words of "scoffers". (2Pt3:3-4) But all things, including energy, are declining. They are running down. So, not only did the light of those stars reach us more quickly then; what astronomers view as an "expanding universe" due to their measurements of a doppler "red shift", is actually not expansion, but rather, the rate at which the speed of light is decreasing; creating the illusion of 'expansion'.
"Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are the Mighty God. You return man to dust, and say, Return, O sons of men." (Ps90:2-3)
Notice that God is "from everlasting to everlasting". The place He has prepared for us is "-eternal- in Heaven". (2Cor5:1) The primary differentiation between the Most High and other so-called 'gods' is His relationship to "time". He "..[declares] the end from the beginning, and from antiquity things which are not yet done.." (Is46:10) Is it possible that these distant stars are not so much "far" away, but rather a matter of "when" they are visible? This Week-end News article ends with the following comments:
--Quote-- 1) time goes faster the further you are from earth..imagine if you were on edge of furthest universe. 2) scientists have explained that our universe is expanding all the time, so to measure time by light years, when the universe is always expanding would give them a huge difference from the correct number. A few years back a researcher said that if you take into consideration the expanding universe and how time goes faster the further you go out, the most distant point would be about 6 days ago, while to us here on earth it would be about 6,000 years. --endQuote--When I read that last sentence, what came into my mind was:
When will man finally understand: "The heavens declare the glory of the Mighty God; and the firmament proclaims His handiwork. Day unto day pours forth speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor words where their voice is not heard." (Ps19:1-3) ??
