Do Quasi-Chrystals allude to a Higher Reality?

Posted on August 24, 2012 at 12:38pm 0 Comments

Quasi-crystals and their nonperiodic  indeterminate assemblages appears to point to a higher quantum reality first posed by Dr. Roger Penrose in his book, "The Emperors New Mind". In short, it is impossible for  crystals having 5 fold symmetry to grow without first knowing a prior what the final over all arrangement will be. Yet unmistakably they do grow in nature. This phenomenon could be explain by conjecturing a higher quantum reality in which all conceivable arrangements exist in Hilbert…

A Rendering of the last 2000 Years not found in Christian Annals ( Pagan Christianity )

Posted on August 14, 2011 at 10:30pm 2 Comments

Borrowing from Stephen Hawking, here is a "A brief history of Time":

It actually started in the first Century. First signs of pagan Christianity appeared in Israel. There was Hellenistic Church constructed complete with a mosiac of Christ represented as Helios in a mosaic on the floor. Even the use of images is alien to Hebraic Christianity, particularly with the prohibition in the Ten Commandments.

Things came to a head with Emperor Constantine, who sees a cross in the sky and…

so do you not have an opinion as to old or young earth and evolution and all that. i see no evidence biblical that satan was cast to earth long before adam and eve arrived, is your statement just speculation or .... specifically what is ur opionion of adam and eve real? first people? did other species evolve unto them?

hey what is ur position as to the age of the earth and the first two chapters of genesis and adam and eve and all that

i understand what you are saying. i think the physical sperm analogies might be lacking a bit but they obviously always are. I see the subordination in the biblical  texts that you talk about when christ is a man. However, his preexistence before he became a man and whether he was subordinate or not would be purely speculation and honestly not that important. There may be some subtle implications of all this theologically but I don't think it really should constitute to  much criticism of the trinitarion doctrine seeing that ultiimately I still have to believe jesus is fully god. Whether, he was in some sense subordinate as the godman seems to not matter that much. All that to say I get what your saying though.

so what is your opinion of the trinity. how do u explain the father son holy spirit thing along with the deity of christ

Michael, you had two identical forum posts, probably due to a Ning glitch. I removed the duplicate for you and left the other in place.

I was actually excited about someone's reply to your post, not the post itself. All apologies for the mistake. Am I interpreting correctly that you are one of those folks that "decode" the Bible?

I'm not attempting to be impolite or chaotic, but why are you here, exactly? Are you looking to convert (yourself or us)? Argue? Entertain yourself? Just curious.
