Re: Re: How should the Bible be interpreted?

Bible should be interpreted as set of guidlines for better living, individualy and as a member of a community. Old testament is a set of guidelines for physical wellbeing and New testament intended for psycological well being and coegsistance. If you take it's words as absolute infalability then how do you explain 'God created the world in six days"? The question is What day? How long is that Day. I would say it's importance is that God have his fingers in creation, not that He said it and thats it. Creation is still ongoing, it started at Big Bang and it will end at the end of the whole universe. The earth is changing, there is less volcanoes, continental shells are moving, stars are moving away from each other and burning out.  I say that science and bible are not contradictory, only that science will prove the Bible as the truth, only science is lagging in many aspects. Consider the ritual water washing before entering the sinagogue. The science proved that we have to keep cleaning ourselfs from bacteria and viruses. Prayers direct rythm of breathing, Lately there are a lot of proofs about effect of breathing to fight mental deppression. Now lets consider Big Bang as an explosion. Explosion consist of extreme widening of a small compact material. So in the begining there was a small ball of matter, enormeously smal, let's say a mile size ball of matter. Recent proff of Einstain's theory of relativity on atomic level shows how it happened. 5% of mass of atom is neutron, while electrons and protons do not have mass. Rest of the mass, 95% is caused by fast movement of electrons who do not have mass. So if Big Bang ball before explosion consisted only of neutrons then God gave the movement by including electrons and protons which do not exist if not moving, and they can move only at speed of light. If they do not have mass then they do not exist. Sudden movement and space requierements for movement of electrons around every single neutron and magnetic resistance represent explosion: the Big Bang. In conclusion electrons and protons gave movement (life) to universe. Hence, electrons and protons are God. God is everywhere, electrons are everywhere, there is no life without electrons, there is no life without God. Light is a foton (single electron in linear motion, no matter, only movement). God is the light.


If God created man, does that says that there is no evolution? What if God created man exsactly at the moment when an ape became human? That is a question of chicken and egg. When a mutation happens? Does it happen when chicken is grown up or when is created. I'd say, mutation happens in grown chicken's chromosom while creating an egg. So egg allready consist of new mutated gene that tells it how to grow up, so egg was first. Especially since eggs existed in reptiles long before they evolved even close to birds. But replace this case with human and it says that evolved ape gave birth to a baby with human gene (soul).

How to make a black hole

Here's the science of black holes, from supermassive monsters to ones the size of ping-pong balls.

  • There's more than one way to make a black hole, says NASA's Michelle Thaller. They're not always formed from dead stars. For example, there are teeny tiny black holes all around us, the result of high-energy cosmic rays slamming into our atmosphere with enough force to cram matter together so densely that no light can escape.
  • CERN is trying to create artificial black holes right now, but don't worry, it's not dangerous. Scientists there are attempting to smash two particles together with such intensity that it creates a black hole that would live for just a millionth of a second.
  • Thaller uses a brilliant analogy involving a rubber sheet, a marble, and an elephant to explain why different black holes have varying densities. Watch and learn!
  • Bonus fact: If the Earth became a black hole, it would be crushed to the size of a ping-pong ball.

Project 100,000: The Vietnam War's cruel and deadly experiment

Military recruits are supposed to be assessed to see whether they're fit for service. What happens when they're not?

  • During the Vietnam War, Robert McNamara began a program called Project 100,000.
  • The program brought over 300,000 men to Vietnam who failed to meet minimum criteria for military service, both physically and mentally.
  • Project 100,000 recruits were killed in disproportionate numbers and fared worse after their military service than their civilian peers, making the program one of the biggest—and possibly cruelest—mistakes of the Vietnam War.

China’s artificial sun reaches fusion temperature: 100 million degrees

In a breakthrough for nuclear fusion research, scientists at China's Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) reactor have produced temperatures necessary for nuclear fusion on Earth.

Surprising Science
  • The EAST reactor was able to heat hydrogen to temperatures exceeding 100 million degrees Celsius.
  • Nuclear fusion could someday provide the planet with a virtually limitless supply of clean energy.
  • Still, scientists have many other obstacles to pass before fusion technology becomes a viable energy source.
