The money men spend in their mad desire to disprove the Bible!!

This article was prompted by reports of the latest folly of so-called intelligent and educated men as they pursue their latest escapade in their rejection of revealed truth in the Word of God. At enormous cost a ‘telescope’, supposedly capable of seeing into the depths of space to a greater degree than ever before, has been launched.

Little, if anything, will come of this folly.

Sincerely in Christ,

“World’s most powerful telescope launches into space on Christmas Day”

So read the headline on the ITV news site. The article so headed informs us that the telescope is designed “to answer unsolved questions about the universe, it will look further back in time than ever before to 400 million years after the Big Bang, the UK Space Agency says.”

It was originally meant to leave on Christmas Eve, but a forecast of high-level winds at the spaceport forced it to be postponed. Indeed, there were other setbacks! “The launch was initially planned for earlier this month, but several setbacks including a communications issue and an incident requiring an extra round of checks on the telescope pushed the date back.”

How frail is man! He is planning to seek out the age of the universe but small hiccoughs of various kinds and the possibility of high winds, hold up the scheme!

Despite this telling display of his own weakness, arrogant man boasts via NASAWebsite: “At 7:20am ET (12:20 UTC), the beginning of a new, exciting decade of science climbed to the sky. Webb’s mission to #UnfoldTheUniverse will change our understanding of space as we know it.”

The hare-brained scheme is further explained on the ‘National Geographic’ website. “Whether that flaming rocket ride represents a year-end gift to science or a catastrophic conclusion to 2021 depends on the weeks ahead. For JWST’s mission to succeed, the telescope must execute an intricate series of carefully choreographed maneuvers during its first month in space. Even a single misstep could compromise the entire mission. And the telescope must perform its devilishly difficult dance far beyond the reach of human hands, hurtling toward a point in space a million miles away. . . . . It’s doing time travel at the same time it’s examining space. We’re looking back through the universe, close to the edge of the big bang 13.8 billion years ago.” The venture is estimated to have cost $10 billion!

I called the project ‘hare-brained’ and I dare say that there will be those who will mock at someone who really doesn’t know a ‘bolide from an asteroid’ daring to make such an assessment!!

But as a simple believer in the repeatedly proven Word of God, I have but to turn its pages and in seconds I have the answer that has taken thousands of these ‘educated eejits’ ‘more than a quarter of a century’ of merely beginning to research and searching and building at a cost of $10 billion. Their attempt will be seen to be a folly, with the inevitable failure and doom. It only takes a fuse to blow somewhere up there and that $10 billion is down the drain!

Whereas, here is the information that informs the Bible believer of how all things commenced and there was no ‘big bang’ just a mere spoken WORD from the Almighty Creator of all things, Genesis 1:3!

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth,” Genesis 1:1.

“And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands,” Hebrews 1:10.

“For [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it,” Exodus 20:11.

Read Luke 3:23-38 and there we have the list of the generations from Adam to the Lord Jesus, kept by Jewish historians as was their habit, and to that add the 2000 years since His incarnation and you have the age of the earth and the creation and it does not come to ‘billions of years’ but rather something like 6000 years.

Here is an end to the problem and I am not out a penny, except of course the cost of my Bible and that was a gift!!
