Judeo-Christian Worldview: God as Creator vs. Left wing Ideology Rush Limbaugh This is one of the reasons despise believers, and especially the so-called religious right. The fact is, leftists and socialists do not like the competition God represents. In their … Continue reading
Wonders of Nature:
Eyes of an Eagle YouTube Video
All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator. ~Alma 30:44
The eagle was fitted with a camera and released from the top of the 2,715 foot Burj Khalifa building in Dubai.
The eagle had no idea where the tiny speck of land was that his handler was standing on or what it looked like among all of the other islands and buildings and people.
Somewhere along the way, the eagle actually picks out and recognizes his trainer from among all of the other objects, people, etc.
You can see him looking, looking, looking for his trainer, who is invisible to the human eye and the camera, and then once he spots him, he folds his wings and drops like a bullet straight to his trainer. when it goes into a power dive.
May we all have the eyes of an eagle.
Life Questions—God as Creator; God is the Answer
God lives; He is our Creator. Like Rush, I have a small miracle to add to his wonderful testimony here. Last week I strained my back. This week, by being cautious and adding prayers to God for healing, I am back to normal. God has created our bodies, and souls, with the capacity to heal, if we follow His laws for repentance and good health. This is not by accident. It is by design. ~C.D.
What’s the Meaning of Life? God is Always the Answer
. . .what you feel about that, what the meaning of life is, so to speak, and where you’re destined to go from here. I don’t know really…
RUSH: Well, I’ll tell you I think about this constantly. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t spend some time pondering this, and it doesn’t take much to trigger it. The story that I told when I got back here to work on Tuesday of a little bird that fell from the roof at dinner on the golf vacation last week?
RUSH: When I saw that little bird, it only knew one thing: Surviving. You could tell. It didn’t want to die and wanted to live. We didn’t know whether it was hurt or not. We didn’t know at what stage of life it was. You know, it was a baby, but it was so tiny. It triggered… At that point, it triggered thoughts in the magic and the majesty of all this and the folly of thinking that it just randomly happened.
RUSH: I believe in the total complexity of it and the inability of any human being to understand it. But we’re gonna continue asking questions about it. I just believe that most of the questions human beings have about these kinds of things are questions we will never be able to answer in this life.
RUSH: But I believe we all have a soul. The soul is the animating aspects of each of us. It’s our consciousness. Our souls are what make us unique, because everything about our bodies is identical, other than size and appearance. But in terms of function, number of teeth, organs, we are 100% alike. But it’s the soul, and each one is unique, even with twins. There are no twin souls. Every one is unique.
“How does that happen?” I ask myself, and I believe that… Well, to cut to the chase, I believe all of this is the result of — for lack of a better word — creation.
It has to be. It’s too intricate. It’s too complex. It’s too microscopic. Our sun is the perfect size. We are the perfect distance away from it to survive. Not very far or close in either direction and we’re a burning mass like Mercury or Venus, and there are none of us.
RUSH: Well, I was telling the truth. I ponder it constantly and not out of fear of anything, but curiosity. I’ll share just one example of what I’m talking about. One day last week — and nothing triggered this. It was just I was having fun with the cat, feeding my cat and so forth. Something just hit me. I have Abyssinian. The Abyssinian breed is the cat the Egyptians, the ancient Egyptians thought were gods. It is Abyssinian cats that they drew on the walls of their tombs. They were considered godly and they were guardians of the pharaohs.
Well, I’ve got one of those cats, and whatever number of thousands of years, that cat has not changed. It is exactly as the first cat was. Now, I believe within-species evolution. They can’t deny that. I don’t believe evolution as a form of creation, and I don’t want to argue with people about that. Wherever somebody wants to tell me the modern house cat came from, I’m not talking about. I’m talking the cat hasn’t changed in 5,000 years or thousands of years.
But we have. The point is we adapt; we modernize. We are able to, as human beings to improve our life circumstances, or standard of living. But animals are exactly as they were. They’re no different. They don’t live any longer than they always have. They’re just identically the same. But human beings are constantly adapting to circumstances. Well, look…. (sigh) I don’t want to get this too deep. Cats can adapt. All animals can adapt to climate and weather, but I’m talking about their intelligence, their ability to adapt.
Like, a cat cannot build a hospital and never will be able to build a hospital. A cat can’t do that. Nor can a porpoise or a dolphin and so forth. And it fascinates me. I believe that… I have a phrase: “We all only get one life.” Most people, because of the nature of life, take it for granted. It just is. It’s busy, and it’s distracting, and it’s chock-full of things so that the amount of time people actually have to contemplate what it is… What is life, how does it happen, where did it come from? I’m constantly thinking about these things.
As I say, any number of different things can trigger it, and I always resort to God. God is always the answer for me on these questions.
That’s where my faith is, and I believe there are answers to all these questions, but not here. I don’t believe… One of my reasons for believing in God is that we, as created, have this magnificent ability to be curious and dream and imagine and to want to know whatever we want to know. But much of that we will never know. You’re gonna continue to ask, but the answers are simply not here.
We’re not capable. We’re not smart enough. We don’t know enough. Yet we have these questions. What kind of a God would create beings who can ponder all these things, such as heaven, if it didn’t exist? Would be an ultimate cruelty, to create beings that can live their lives or try to live their lives in such a way to achieve these great things and at the end of it not be possible because it doesn’t exist. No way to prove any of this. To me, it’s faith.
But my faith in all this is actually the foundational root for many of my what people would think are political beliefs. Climate change. The idea that human beings (chuckles) can alter the climate of the planet to the point of destroying it to me is patently absurd. We do not have that kind of power. We’re not even close to having that kind of power! We don’t even understand where this is. The universe is somewhere. Where is it?
We’re on this constant quest for life elsewhere — And you’ll note that in every liberal pursuit of life elsewhere, guess what? It’s always superior. We’re always inferior. We’re dumb. They’re the smart ones. Life, if it exists elsewhere, has already solved nuclear war, it has solved climate change, it has solved hunger, everything. And if alien life comes here and takes a look at us, it says we’re not worth it and they leave or they plant spies…
This is asinine to me. But this is what suffices as liberal thinking about all this, the inferiority. Yet in the midst of all of this inferiority they assign to us, on the other hand they tell us we’re destroying the planet by what we invent! We’re destroying the planet by virtue of our adaptation ability, by virtue of our ingenuity, by virtue of our innovation, which is all oriented toward increasing our standard of living and quality of life. They want to tell us this is destroying God’s creation? Bohunk! It’s absolutely absurd.
RUSH: Now, one more thing. Life is everywhere, and the business of life is life. That little bird that fell off the roof, it was gonna survive. I’ve been blown away at how life makes sure it continues. There’s one place, there’s one place at least in the Democrat Party where life does not exist. You know where that is? Stop and think. Life is everywhere, is it not? I mean, everywhere you look, there is life, and it’s doing everything it can to live and to propagate and survive. Except… (interruption) Well, you’re close. You’re close. There is one place, many places in the world, if you’re a Democrat, where life does not exist, and that is — dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut — the womb.
Christians’ access to heaven is the result of belief and acceptance of Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior. [Without Him] we would never achieve heaven . . . because we’re all sinners.
Questions about Science:
Truth in Science; Big Bang Theory Facts; God as Creator
God as Creator. All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator. ~Alma 30:44
Many Scientists reject God as Creator
There is no God in scientific… There is no God. (interruption) Huh-uh. No, God didn’t put it there, ’cause if God put it there then it’s somewhere other than the universe, and since God is not scientific — that’s religious — the scientific community does not go there. Professor Hawking didn’t. Professor Hawking said the notion of an afterlife is a fairy tale. Professor Hawking said that the notion of a heaven or an afterlife is… He said the human brain is nothing but a computer, and it’s gonna fail and shut down when its components cease to exist.
There’s no afterlife for broken-down computers, for failed computers. This is what Professor Hawking said. So this is it. This… Do you think Stephen Hawking had every question he had answered? I guarantee you he didn’t. He died still thirsting and questing for knowledge. We all do and we all will. And remaining, there will always be questions that we can’t answer. Not on earth, anyway. Not as we exist today. We’ll never be able to ever to answer them.
Colonize . . .Where?
A guy says to me, “We’re toast in 200 years unless we figure out how to colonize X.” What? The moon? Mars? We’re gonna have to create global warming someplace, wherever we go, to be able to live there. You ever stop to think about that? I mean, and everybody swoons and thinks, “Wow, man! He’s so far ahead of all of us.” And I don’t doubt that, in his field, there’s no question he was light years ahead of everybody and there’s no way to prove it. We just all accepted it. But this colonizing someplace else?
It’s not just him. Elon Musk is on this. You know, all of these Silicon Valley brain wizards say, “The earth is gonna destroy us! Global warming, climate change are gonna destroy us. We’re gonna run out of this, run out of that.” We’re not running out of anything. Natural resources are increasing. Life expectancy is increasing. Life on earth has never been better than it is today in any statistical way that you want to measure it, and yet the doom-and-gloom crowd says, “Two hundred years! Two hundred…” That means the people who are gonna eventually colonize have not been born yet.
“How are we gonna get two billion people there? How are we gonna get 500,000 people there?” You know what Musk said? Musk said he’s gonna have a Mars trip next year, and if you sign up you’re likely to die making the trip. Well, sign me up! Put me on that first vessel. I can’t wait to die in the quest to colonize Mars. People swoon. “Oh, my!” because he can make a rocket land back on earth just as it took off. You know what? I’m going to go on Musk’s first mission to Mars. I will gladly die to facilitate this effort to colonize someplace.
Why would you go on a trip to Mars if you’re likely to die on the trip? Wouldn’t that kind of mean failure if you don’t get there and you’re not able to start…? (interruption) Yeah. Okay. Yeah, but Columbus didn’t know where he was going. We do know where we’re going. That makes us dumber than Columbus. We know we’re going to nothing! We know we’re going to where we can’t live. We know we’re going to where there isn’t a damn thing to keep us alive and we’re gonna do it anyway.
Columbus at least, you know, back then they thought the earth was flat (some idiots still do) and they feared falling off the edge of the earth. That’s the thing he faced. Columbus didn’t even know where he was when he got there, and look what they say about him now. Can you imagine the reports on Mars in 200 years about Elon Musk, what they’re gonna say about him if he does get there and colonize this place? They’re wanting to take down every Columbus statue all over the country now for racism, sexism, bigotry, homophobia, anti-Italian, whatever it is, prejudice.
Big Bang Theory Facts
I have all kinds of… You know, the Big Bang. Let’s look at the Big Bang. People accept that the Big Bang is how all of this began. Now, again, folks, I have a belief. One of the ways I have proven to myself… ‘Cause I think we’ve all tried to do this. We accept the faith, but then we still test it. As long as there are questions that we can ask… Meaning, we have been created with the intelligence to create or ask these questions, this quest for knowledge.
If there are questions we can ask to which we will never have the answers, then that gives me confidence that
there is more than just life on earth.
What is the point of creating beings who can ponder such places if they don’t exist? Certainly the Big Bang. Again, I’ll admit I’m just a college dropout radio guy, okay? I’m not a professional physicist. I’m not a professional scientist. I do not own a lab coat, white or light blue. So they tell me that the Big Bang is where everything began. Hawking says it’s the Big Bang and we’re still expanding.
The Big Bang was the size of what’s in a thimble. Massive energy we can’t even comprehend. Boom! Still expanding. But gravity and other stellar forces are going to cause the universe to contract. Once it expands, it’s gonna reach its max size and come back down to earth, so to speak, and we’re all gonna end up back in a thimble. Except you and I won’t be alive when that happens, and our sun will burn out. Now, I have what I think are common-sense questions. Okay, the Big Bang. There was this whatever-size — call it a golf ball-, tennis ball-size — piece of matter that big banged and we’re all here.
Where was it?
Where was this glob of matter that banged that created the universe?
Where was it?
No, no, no. You can’t say, “It was in the void.” You can’t say it was in another dimension, parallel or otherwise, astral plane. It had to be somewhere. Where was it? What was around it? Could you see it? Could somebody see this golf-ball-size bit of energy if they were not part of that? Could you be somewhere and see it? Could you be somewhere and witness this Big Bang instead of being a part of it? If so, where were you? Well, since nobody could see it, how the hell do they know it really happened?
But I’m not supposed to ask that. Another question. I ask scientists these questions. They cannot answer them for me. Another question I have: The universe. Well, definition of the universe is everything that is, but it has to be somewhere. Where is it? Can you get outside the universe and look at the universe as a non-part of it? If you can’t, then where is it? Space-time? What is space-time? Is that the speed the USS Enterprise moves through the galaxies with? What is space…?
My question is, “Where is it? Where is the universe?”
Big Bang Theory Facts: Theory vs. Law
Hawking’s Theory of Spontaneous Self-Assembly violates known laws of Physics
RUSH: Martin in Gainesville, Florida, you’re next. It’s great to have you, sir.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. I wanted to touch on a couple of points you made regarding Stephen Hawking and the Big Bang Theory. For all of his intellect and all of his intelligence and knowledge,
his premise about the spontaneous self-assembly of matter steps on the a priori laws — not theories, laws — of physics that says that matter and energy don’t spontaneously come from nowhere; magically, they’re there.
So your notion that this tennis ball-sized bit of matter that represents all of the universe just came from nowhere — magically, it was there (nothing put it there; it wasn’t created) and then it just all of a sudden it just exploded with no external source of energy) — defies the laws of physics. Not the theories of physics, the basic laws. When you base your premise by trampling on the underpinnings of the laws of physics, what you say holds no water. It’s a theory based on a fallacy that the basic laws are not true.
CALLER: I’m a botanist and a high school science teacher. I’ve got several degrees in botany. I love science and I read and pay attention to a lot of things that go on in the scientific community.
