In Chapter One the material vegetable and animal kingdoms were all created during the six days (each day being a thousand years). It took seven thousand years including the day of rest for the completion of creation.

Genesis Ch. 2.

Here it states that there is no tree, herb, etc. upon the Earth "The Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth" and "there was no man to till the ground". St. Paul said God is a spirit and must be worshipped in the spirit. Spirits of course cannot till the ground.

It is only in the last few decades that we have come to understand with the aid of modern science, how the Earth was transformed from a ball of molten syrup to a crusty volcanic maelstrom to the fertile planet we now inhabit. The authors of Genesis already knew this.

Surely a superstitious scientifically uninformed mind would have come up with a much more primitive interpretation of creation than this?

In Ch.2. v 7 it says:

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

In my mind this statement reveals an understanding of natural evolution (from dust to dust) but also says that man initially existed in spirit form. The concept of evolution on the one hand and spiritual existence on the other would appear to be a contradiction in terms to both evolutionists and theists but thousands of years later we are still searching for the answers.

Is it that the ancient mind uncluttered by scientific knowledge and the need for scientific explanation could more easily grasp and accept the possibility of incredible concepts ? To this day the finest brains in history have not been able to prove or disprove the assumption of their so called ancient and primitive forebears.

Food for thought!

Tsunami Coming

The sub-prime mortgage crisis is a ripple in a pond compared to the gathering tsunami about to be unleashed as a result of worldwide food shortages. One hundred million people are now facing the risk of starvation and food riots are breaking out in numerous countries with serious consequences for everyone. It is now that those who in the past, have not understood the meaning of the term “global village,” will come to realise its significance.

Countries like India are cutting back on the export of certain commodities to ensure sufficient food for their own population. Other countries will inevitably follow suit. This will lead to even more dramatic increases in food prices and increasing shortages for everyone.

I have always believed that “globalisation” was a false and dangerous concept, the ultimate pursuit of fool’s gold by greedy corporate and political pirates, chasing an elusive treasure of ever lower manufacturing costs and higher profits. As a consequence we have let our fields lie fallow, taken our manufacturing overseas and sold our utilities to the highest bidder.

In short we are no longer independent but dependent on others and circumstances elsewhere for food, and energy. This grotesque lack of vision, this vacuum of wisdom has meant we are now all sailing in a single ship instead of a convoy of many. When it sinks we all go down

Chinese Complicity In Zimbabwe

I was disgusted to see Chinese and North Korean “advisors,” sitting in the stadium supporting the Mugabe regime at the 28th anniversary of Zimbabwe’s independence from Britain. In his speech attacking Britain and Brown, Robert Mugabe made one of the most hypocritically ludicrous speeches ever heard. It would have been hilarious were it not so tragic.

China and North Korea continue to arm Mugabe’s bestial regime, knowing full well that the military hardware will be used to oppress his own citizens. The Chinese and North Korea governments have revealed the true depth of their disdain for human rights and democracy. They have demonstrated to the World a total absence of any sense of morality or integrity.

They have shown there is no gutter too disgusting into which they will not stoop, to gain economic and political influence or advantage, irrespective of the misery and cost in human lives. They have shown their true colours and they have proven beyond doubt that they are untrustworthy of support at any level. They are complicit in the crimes committed by Robort Mugabe against his own people and they should be condemned by all humanitarian governments and organisations for so doing.

They must not be allowed to get away with it and I now totally support a boycott of the Beijing Olympics and Chinese products until such time as they change their ways.
