YHWH's 360 day - Lunar Year calendar
By Israel Ysrayl
The Hebraic lunar calendar that is spoken by YHWH in Exodus 12:2 consist of 12 months and 30 days per each lunar month, which totals to 360 days in the lunar year. Unlike the Gregorian solar calendar that has gone through so many changes through out recorded history, YHWH's calendar till this day has remained unchanged for over 5,000 years. As we would read Exodus 12:2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. According to Exodus 12:2 the months is in reference to lunar months and the first lunar month of the lunar year is Abib. According to scripture, the days that was spoken to Ezekiel 46:1-3 is New Moon day , 6 working days & 7th day Sabbath. New moon to New moon = 30 days. According to Man’s astronomical calculation, some of the lunar months vary from 29 to 30 days, which according to their calculation, the lunar calendar is a total sum of 354 days in the lunar year.. This astronomical calculation is no where supported through any scriptural reference, however there is scriptural reference that calculates each lunar month by 30 days even, which totals 360 days in the lunar year. According to scripture 1260 days, 42 month or a Thousand two hundred threescore days is 3 ½ yearsRevelation 11:2-4, Revelation 12:6, Revelation 13:51260 days divided by 42 months = 30 days per each lunar month According to scripture: Time, Times and half a time or dividing of times is 3 ½ yearsTime = 1 yearTimes = 2 yearsHalf a time or dividing of times = ½ yearDaniel 12:7, Daniel 7:25, Revelation 12:141260 days divided by 42 months = 30 days per each lunar month According to scripture 120 days divided by 30 days a month = 4 monthsThe book of Judith 1:16 (From the Apocrypha) According to scripture 150 days divided by 30 days a month = 5 monthsGenesis 7:11, 24; 8:3-4 According to scripture 180 days divided by 30 days a month = 6 monthsEsther 1:4 According to the above scriptural references, there are 30 days even per each lunar month. Ecclesiasticus 43:6 (Apocrypha)He made the moon also to serve in her season for a declaration of times, and a sign of the world. As per Ecclesiasticus 43:6, the moon was made to be a watch in the sky. To my observation here is a diagram on how I been observing the moon as a watch in the sky according to 7th day Sabbaths. Please note, that this observation is (My personal) observation that is not supported through any scriptures, but an observation that I have noticed that has been unchanged per each lunar month, as I would advise to confirm this research on your end to validate each lunar phase upon each 7th day Sabbath. It is written that the tribe of Issachar did have an understanding of the times as being the only calendar during ancient Israel is the Hebraic lunar calendar that is constituted by the New moon (1 Chronicles 12:32) ,i like this,this is truth and factual,not our 365 days.

link,Saturday Sabbath? Or Lunar Sabbath?

People in love do everything in their power to please the one they love. This is the natural reaction of the heart that loves. It is not viewed as a duty, but a joy and privilege! This is what the true Sabbath means to all who love their Maker and wish to honor Him. At the very start of the world, the seventh-day was set apart as a day to rest and worship the Creator. Those who value the care showered on them by a loving heavenly Father, want to obey Him and worship Him on the true Sabbath day.

The question then arises: "Which day is the Bible Sabbath? Which day is the true seventh-day Sabbath of Scripture?" There are many different, widely-held beliefs regarding when to worship. Three of these views are as follows:

Many people believe that there is no need for a specific day of rest since Yahuwah should be worshipped every day.
Saturday sabbatarians believe that because Saturday is the last day of the modern seven-day week, it must be the true seventh-day Sabbath. Because modern weeks cycle continuously, they believe Saturday has come down uninterrupted from Creation as the true seventh-day Sabbath.
Still others believe that an accumulation of Biblical and historical evidence reveals that the true Sabbath can only be found by using the luni-solar calendar used in Bible times.
While it is true that one should worship every day, the sovereign of the Universe Himself expressly commanded that on the seventh-day, labor is to be set aside and special time spent with Him. The Sabbath is not just a day of worship. It is also specifically a day of no labor. Yahuwah even stated that the Sabbath is a sign between Himself and His children forever. This article will consider the evidence for whether the true Sabbath is a "Saturday Sabbath" or what is called a "lunar Sabbath."

"There is no excuse for anyone in taking the position that there is no more truth to be revealed, and that all our expositions of Scripture are without an error. The fact that certain doctrines have been held as truth for many years . . . is not a proof that our ideas are infallible. Age will not make error into truth, and truth can afford to be fair. No true doctrine will lose anything by close investigation." Councils to Writers and Editors, p. 35

For all who want to know truth, there comes a time when the way divides. Personal prejudice, tradition and preconceived ideas should have no standing in the mind of one wanting to know "the Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth." If the seeker for truth will study with an open mind, being willing to obey what is revealed if he is convicted that it istruth, then truth will be revealed to his mind and he need not remain in error. This is what is required of all who would study the subject of the lunar Sabbath.

Scripture reveals that the entire conflict between the Creator and Satan is contained in The Battle Over Worship. It is a war for the mind of every man, woman and child alive today. Therefore, it would be wise for everyone on earth to examine this subject for themselves. All should study and know for sure whether the true day of worship is a Saturday Sabbath or a Lunar Sabbath.

Solar? Lunar? or Lunar-Solar?

If it is important to worship on a specific day (the Sabbath) than it is of vital importance that the correct method of counting be used to find that day. In other words, the correct calendar must be used. Time can only be measured by movement. There are three main types of calendars:

Solar calendar (The modern civil calendar, the Gregorian calendar, is a solar calendar.)
Lunar calendar (The religious calendar used by Muslims is a lunar calendar.)
Luni-solar calendar (This is also sometimes called the Lunar-Solar calendar.)
History and archeology reveal that all ancient civilizations used luni-solar calendars. While the Egyptians were the first to adopt a strictly solar calendar, their original calendar was also a lunar-solar calendar. This ancient and highly accurate method of time calculation ties lunar months to the solar year by some observable point in nature.

The movement of the sun, moon and stars are the only accurate measurement of time. Even with modern atomic clocks, all time is measured by the cycles of the heavenly bodies. Days and years are both measured by the rotation of light as viewed from the earth.

A solar year is 365 days long. The lunar year is 11 days shorter than the solar year. Thus, the dates of a strictly lunar calendar float through the seasons of the solar year. Various cultures that used a lunar-solar calendar, anchored the lunar months to different points in the solar year. Some, like the ancient Egyptians, used the rising of the star, Sirius, at the time of the summer solstice. Others, such as the Aztecs and the Maya, used the winter solstice for their new year. More recently, when France adopted a different calendar during the French Revolution, their year briefly began at the autumn equinox.

Historical evidence shows that by far the majority of ancient calendars began their year in the spring, at or near the time of the spring (vernal) equinox. The Israelites also used a luni-solar calendar and began their year in the spring. Both their annual feasts and the seventh-day Sabbath were calculated by the lunar-solar calendar that had been established by the Creator at the very beginning of the world.

The Lunar Sabbath in Scripture

The Creator's calendar is a vitally important tool for finding the true seventh-day Sabbath which contains the "seal of God." Sometimes called the mark of God, it is, more accurately, the seal of Yahuwah: one's pledge of loyalty to the Creator. Scripture reveals that at Creation, both the sun and the moon were given to provide light as well as the means for marking the passage of time. The modern solar calendar does not use the moon for keeping time. Nor does the Hindu or the Muslim lunar calendar use the sun. Only the ancient lunar-solar calendar meets the criteria of using both the sun and the moon in its system of time-keeping.

Many people who keep the feast days listed in Leviticus 23 still observe a Saturday sabbath. They believe that the lunar-solar calendar was used only for the yearly feasts, but that Saturday of the modern solar calendar has come down in a continuous weekly cycle ever since Creation. But this is two different methods of time-keeping! Nowhere in Scripture are two separate and distinct systems of time-keeping mentioned. At Creation, one calendar was established and it required the use of both the sun and the moon.

And . . . [Yahuwah] said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And . . . [Yahuwah] made two great lights; . . . [And He] set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. (Genesis 1:14-18, KJV.)

Right in this passage, in the very first chapter of the first book of the Bible, the principle is established that the two great lights were to be used for marking the time for worship and as a sign, or mark of loyalty to the Creator. The word translated "signs" comes from the Hebrew word ôwth, which means a sign or mark. "This word represents something by which a person or group is characteristically marked. . . . The word means 'sign' as a reminder of one's duty." (See #226, The New Strong's Expanded Dictionary of Bible Words.)

The Sabbath is the sign by which the Creator's people are marked and set apart as different from all others on earth. The Hebrew word that is translated "seasons" is even more revealing. It is the word mo'ed. It is the use of this word that reveals the true Sabbath of Creation is a lunar Sabbath. Mo'ed is the word used specifically to refer to the annual feasts.

Since the Jewish festivals occurred at regular intervals, this word becomes closely identified with them . . . Mo'ed is used in a broad sense for all religious assemblies. It was closely associated with the tabernacle itself . . . [Yahuwah] met Israel there at specific times for the purpose of revealing His will. It is a common term for the worshiping assembly of . . . [Yahuwah's] people. (See #4150, "Lexical Aids to the Old Testament," Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible, KJV.)

Far from presenting two different systems of time-keeping, Scripture presents only one: the lunar-solar calendar by which the annual feasts as well as the seventh-day Sabbath, a lunar Sabbath, are to be calculated. Leviticus 23 is a listing of the holy feasts of Yahuwah. From the Spring Anniversaries to the Fall Feasts, Leviticus 23 delineates them all out. But the very first "feast" listed is the weekly feast: the seventh-day Sabbath.

And . . . [Yahuwah] spoke unto Moses, saying, "Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: 'The feasts of . . . [Yahuwah], which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts. Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation. You shall do no work on it; it is the Sabbath of . . . [Yahuwah] in all your dwellings." (Leviticus 23:1-3)

From there, Yahuwah went on to list the annual feasts (or mo'edim) but the very first feast He gave was the seventh-day Sabbath.

Lunar Sabbath: A holy day of rest, it is the seventh and last day of each week in a lunation. The weekly cycle restarts with the observation of the first visible crescent moon. Four complete weeks follow New Moon Day.

Psalm 104:19 is yet another witness from Scripture that the seventh-day Sabbath is to be calculated by the moon: "He appointed [created] the moon for seasons." The word here translated "seasons" is, again, mo'edim. The Biblical record is consistent: there is only one method of time-keeping presented in scripture. That is the lunar-solar calendar established by Yahuwah Himself at Creation. This calendar establishes all of the times appointed for worship, the mo'edim. The only Sabbath in scripture is a lunar Sabbath.

The Lunar-Solar Calendar of Scripture

The lunar-solar calendar begins each month with the observance of the first visible crescent of the moon in the western sky after sunset. The very next day is called New Moon Day and it is numbered as the first of the month. (For use of the term "New Moon" in Scripture, see: I Samuel 20:5, 18 & 24; 2 Kings 4:23; Psalm 81:3; Isaiah 66:23; Ezekiel 46:1; and Amos 8:5.)

On the ancient calendar, the seventh-day Sabbath always falls on the same dates of every month. This is a feature of the lunar-solar calendar and the true lunar Sabbath.

On the Biblical lunar-solar calendar, each lunation (or lunar month) always begins with a New Moon day, which is in a class of worship day all by itself. Six work days follow on the second through seventh of the month. The seventh-day Sabbath always falls on the 8th, the 15th, the 22nd and the 29th of every lunar month. This is the reason it is called a lunar Sabbath.

Scripture itself supports this calendar configuration. Every time the seventh-day Sabbath is given a numbered date in the Bible, it always falls on the 8th, the 15th, the 22nd or the 29th of the month. Either the actual date itself is assigned or contextual dates and other details consistently allow for that extrapolation. For example, the story of the Exodus from Egypt contains specific dates and details for three months in a row, all of which have the seventh-day Sabbath falling on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th for each month! These calendar details were confirmed 40 years later at the time of Joshua and again at the crucifixion of the Saviour on Passover.

As mentioned previously, the lunar year is shorter than the solar year and without some means of anchoring the lunar months to the solar year, the seasons would float through the calendar. Yahuwah's method of tying the lunar year to the longer solar year was a beautiful reminder that all their needs were provided for by the loving Creator. Instead of using the spring (or vernal) equinox, the Israelites were to use the ripened barley harvest. Yahuwah sent the "early rain" in the fall for the seed to germinate, and then the "latter rain" was sent in the last month to bring the grain to full maturity. Without rain, there would be no harvest. Thus, the minds of the people were directed to the loving care of their Maker and their hearts filled with gratitude as they recognized His tender care for them.

The true New Year could not begin until after the old solar year had finished. Thus, every two to three years, an extra thirteenth month was intercalated into the year. This was called an embolismic year, because an entire additional month was added to bring the lunations back into alignment with the seasons. Ezekiel provides scriptural proof for the thirteenth month used in embolismic years.

The lunar-solar calendar of Creation is the most accurate method of time-keeping. It is elegant, precise. It is divinely designed time-keeping. Jeremiah 31:35 refers to Yahuwah giving the "ordinances" (or laws) of the moon. The ordinances of divine time-keeping are so simple that the shepherd on the hillside can be as accurate by observation, as the astronomer in his observatory is by calculation. Even the count to Pentecost, which has long confused people because the two specifics of the count seem contradictory, can be accurately figured only by using the lunar-solar calendar.

Jews and the Lunar Sabbath

While it is true that the Jews today worship on a Saturday sabbath, this does not prove that it is the true Sabbath. They did not always worship on the Saturday sabbath. Jewish scholars are very clear that the original method of calendation was different from the modern calendar and that under intense persecution during the fourth century A.D., the Jews gave up their original lunar-solar calendar with its lunar Sabbath. Declaring the new month by observation of the new moon, and the new year by the arrival of spring, can only be done by the Sanhedrin. In the time of Hillell II [4th century C.E.], the last President of the Sanhedrin, the Romans prohibited this practice. Hillel II was therefore forced to institute his fixed calendar, thus in effect giving the Sanhedrin's advance approval to the calendars of all future years. ("The Jewish Calendar and Holidays (incl. Sabbath)": The Jewish Calendar; Changing the Calendar,, emphasis supplied.)

Once the ancient lunar-solar calendar had been set aside, knowledge of the true lunar Sabbath was lost with the acceptance of the pagan Julian calendar.

Lunar Sabbath Lost

These stone fragments of an early Julian calendar clearly show an eight-day week. The Israelites did not use the Julian calendar for finding the seventh-day Sabbath. They used the original lunar-solar calendar of Creation to find the lunar Sabbath.

The calendar of the Roman Republic, like that of the Hebrew calendar, was also a lunar-solar calendar. In 45-46 B.C., Julius Cæsar reformed the original Roman calendar and, with the help of an Alexandrian astronomer, Sosigenes, created a new solar calendar with continuously cycling weeks: the Julian calendar. While the Julian calendar was in use at the time of the Messiah, the Israelites did not use it as the early Julian week was eight days long! The Israelites were still using their original lunar solar calendar and worshipping on the seventh day of its week.

From that time, until the fourth century, Israelites and apostolic Christians continued to use the Biblical calendar for their religious observances. With the rising power of the paganized Christians in Rome, this led to a centuries long battle over when to remember the death and resurrection of the Saviour. The Christians in Rome wished to celebrate the Messiah's resurrection on the pagan Easter. Apostolic Christians, on the other hand, wished to commemorate Yahushua's death on the original Passover.

The point of contention appeared deceptively simple: Passover versus Easter. The issues at stake, however, were immense. The only way to determine when Passover occurs is to use the Biblical luni-solar calendar, for only by observing the moon can one count to the 14th day following the first visible crescent. Because the seventh-day Sabbath was also calculated from the first visible crescent, a ruling in favor of Easter being observed on a Julian date would also affect the seventh-day Sabbath. (See Biblical Calendar Outlawed: Constantine and the Council of Nicaea.)

Calendars calculate time and at the Council of Nicæa it was decided to set aside Jewish calculation and adopt the pagan Julian calendar. This effectively destroyed knowledge of the lunar Sabbath and substituted the pagan Saturday Sabbath in its place. Jewish scholars admit this fact, too.

In a colorful description of the Council of Nicæa, Jewish scholar Heinrich Graetz wrote:

At the Council of Nice [sic] the last thread was snapped which connected Christianity to its parent stock. The festival of Easter had up till now been celebrated for the most part at the same time as the Jewish Passover, and indeed upon the days calculated and fixed by the Synhedrion [Sanhedrin] in Judæa for its celebration; but in future its observance was to be rendered altogether independent of the Jewish calendar . . . . (History of the Jews, published by the Jewish Publication Society of America, 1893, Vol. II, see pp. 563-564.)

The Council of Nicæa had the most profound, far reaching effect upon the truth of the lunar Sabbath. To this day Catholic scholars base the authority of the Catholic Church on this act of changing the Sabbath from the lunar Sabbath of the lunar-solar calendar to Sunday on the continuously cycling Julian week. The pagan Julian calendar, legislated into place, an entire counterfeit system of religion. Thus the true lunar Sabbath was buried under centuries of tradition and the assumption that the modern week has cycled continuously ever since Creation.

Repair the Breach: Restore the Lunar Sabbath

Isaiah 58 contains a beautiful prophecy of the work to be performed by the final generation. "And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in." (Isaiah 58:12)

The three angels' messages of Revelation 14 contain a call to worship on the true lunar Sabbath of Scripture.

This is the work of those who have pledged their allegiance to the Creator by worshipping Him on His true holy day, the lunar Sabbath. To repair the hole made in Yahuwah's law, to clear away the rubbish of error and tradition, accumulated from centuries of assumption, is the great work committed to the people of the final generation. Revelation contains a three-fold warning, calling all to "Fear . . . [Yahuwah], and give glory to him . . . and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." (See Revelation 14:6-10.)

This subject is of the utmost importance to all now living. The true Sabbath is the mark of loyalty that distinguishes those who are willing to obey from those who cling to tradition and assumption. All should study the subject of the lunar Sabbath, the facts of calendar history that relate to the lunar Sabbath, and pertinent passages from the Bible. The Battle of Armageddon, like everything else in the long-running war between Yahuwah and Lucifer, is fought on the battlefield of worship.

All who desire to honor their Creator will choose to worship Him on the day that He has blessed and set aside: the seventh day of the week on the lunar-solar calendar, the true lunar Sabbath.

very interesting subject

reply to post by venusstarlite is another good site......The True Scriptural "Almanac" - "Calendar" is vitally important to The Salvation.

"Belief" without obedience to the Law of YHWH (Yahweh) is contrary to The True Message that YHWSU (Yahshua) came to preach (Luke
6:46; Mattithyah / Matthew 7:23).

The True Scriptural "Almanac" - "Calendar" is a central part of The True Message, because it determines The True Sabbath Days which
are crucial Signs of YHWH (Yahweh)
(Exodus 31:13; Yechetzqyah / Ezekiel 20:12,20).

By these vital Sabbath Signs YHWH (Yahweh) shows who He has personally sanctified. We are sanctified through the Offering / Sacrifice of
the Body of YHWSU (Yahshua) MashiYah (MessiYah) (Hebrews 10:10), but the evidence that we are sanctified by YHWH (Yahweh), is that we
keep YHWH (Yahweh)'s True Sabbaths (Exodus 31:13; Yechetzqyah / Ezekiel 20:12, 20).

The Restoration of YHWH (Yahweh)'s True "Almanac" - "Calendar" is one of the Priority of "BYT YHWH" - The Community of Yahweh of The
Disciples of Yahshua.

Until the latter part of the 20th century, The True Scriptural "Almanac" - "Calendar" had been lost in antiquity. In its place, various civil and
evangelical "Almanacs" - "Calendars" schemes have been substituted over the centuries.

The common Hebrew "Almanac" - "Calendar" is accepted by many as The True Scriptural "Calendar", which it is not. In Truth, the
historical evidence shows beyond any reasonable doubt, the present Hebrew "Almanac" - "Calendar" is simply the ancient Babylonian
"Almanac" - "Calendar".

For example, the Hebrew "Almanac" - "Calendar" in use today uses the unscriptural Babylonian evening to evening Day. It begins the
Month with the unscriptural Babylonian visible Crescent / Sliver of the Moon following the Conjunction. Although this is a widely used
definition of the New Moon, among many religious groups, it has no whatever Scriptural basis.

In contrast to many other unscriptural "Almanacs" - "calendars" schemes in use today, the Hebrew "Almanac" - "Calendar" does not use
the Vernal or Autumnal Equinoxes to set Feast Days. However, It does deviate from the Scriptural 30 Days Month by using alternately 29 and
30 Days Months.

link, I,love this,This looks like some proof about Jesus,amen......Hidden in a cave for 2,000 years…is this the first-ever portrait of Jesus?

More from the recently discovered bible codices

We are still waiting for the recently discoveries of long-hidden bible codices to be fully examined for authenticity before we make up our minds. This is either a very elaborate hoax, or, one of the most amazing discoveries since the days of the apostles. Is it possible that as we near the End of Days the bible has long talked about, that God is allowing these artifacts to be discovered as further proof of the truth of the bible? We don’t know. But we will continue to report on the amazing story as it unfolds, and let you read and decide for yourself.

Is this a portrait of Jesus?

The image is eerily familiar: a bearded young man with flowing curly hair. After lying for nearly 2,000 years hidden in a cave in the Holy Land, the fine detail is difficult to determine. But in a certain light it is not difficult to interpret the marks around the figure’s brow as a crown of thorns.

The extraordinary picture of one of the recently discovered hoard of up to 70 lead codices – booklets – found in a cave in the hills overlooking the Sea of Galilee is one reason Bible historians are clamouring to get their hands on the ancient artifacts. The tiny booklet, a little smaller than a modern credit card, is sealed on all sides and has a three-dimensional representation of a human head on both the front and the back. One appears to have a beard and the other is without. Even the maker’s fingerprint can be seen in the lead impression. Beneath both figures is a line of as-yet undeciphered text in an ancient Hebrew script.

Astonishingly, one of the booklets appears to bear the words ‘Saviour of Israel’ – one of the few phrases so far translated.

The owner of the cache is Bedouin trucker Hassan Saida who lives in the Arab village of Umm al-Ghanim, Shibli. He has refused to sell the booklets but two samples were sent to England and Switzerland for testing. A Mail on Sunday investigation has revealed that the artifacts were originally found in a cave in the village of Saham in Jordan, close to where Israel, Jordan and Syria’s Golan Heights converge – and within three miles of the Israeli spa and hot springs of Hamat Gader, a religious site for thousands of years.

The debate over whether these booklets are genuine and, if so, whether they represent the first known artifacts of the early Christian church or the first stirrings of mystical Kabbalah will undoubtedly rage for years to come. The director of Jordan’s Department of Antiquities, Ziad al-Saad, has few doubts. He believes they may indeed have been made by followers of Jesus in the few decades immediately following his crucifixion.

‘They will really match, and perhaps be more significant than, the Dead Sea Scrolls,’ he says. ‘The initial information is very encouraging and it seems that we are looking at a very important and significant discovery – maybe the most important discovery in the history of archaeology.’

If he is right, then we really may be gazing at the face of Jesus Christ. source – Daily Mail UK

How do you "KNOW FOR A FACT" that jesus is real? Because YOU believe so? I disagree... If I say i KNOW FOR A FACT that Jesus is fictional... Am i right?... Didn't think so...

Does it matter my friend?

I do not know that the author of the instructions used to put together a bicycle is real either, but I know if I follow those instructions, I will have a bicycle that I can ride.

Why worry about the flesh of the matter, when it is the spirit that leads to a more blissful life?

With Love,

Your Brother

You are a FRAUD! Your lip service serves only to please the unbelievers, you reject the very words of Jesus for the sake of your pleaseantry. It takes much more than "believing" that God exists to be saved, it takes much more than confessing your sins, it takes actual work, it's not all roses and sunshine. You may fool these scoffers into thinking that you're happy and at peace, but you don't fool me. Being a follower if Jesus isn't about having a blissful life, Jesus said that the world will hate you because of him, and you are trying your damnest to be friends with these people who don't respect you for what you believe, they get their butts kissed by you and are satisfied with that. You are perpetuating a lie, true Christianity is a hard path, and few ever find it. Anyone can write, "With Love," at the same time asking "Does it matter my friend?" this is his honest opinion, be it based on ignorace yet you don't think that this person's opinion matters and yet you call him friend?

Religion has started more wars and killed more people that anything else in history. All religions have blood on their hands and because they do it in the name of a god, it's called a crusade or holy war of sorts. I would just like to see religion justify the murder of millions, just once.

Your OP shows evolution is just as big as a hoax as all the religions in the world. The only sure truth on this planet is the Holy Bible. Which also says the man was born "broke" and without God stepping in, they will never be "fixed".

Good post

Here that all you scientists, inventors, and pride engorged people.

We cannot invent one thing that is better than natural. We can't even do devistation better than nature. Nuclear technology what a joke. Every chemical creates a poison, for every 'supposed' benefit the detrimental side is worse. Yes we have big screens, androids, an all types of trinkets. But we also have gmos poison water and radioactivity. I think it all really took off with the patent process and synthetics. Since a natural substance cannot be patented they create these synthetic chemicals to taste or smell like the real thing.

All these diseases and starvation were ravaged upon us in the name of progress. So you could have your diamond bracelet hundreds may have died. It is evident natural law is manifest here as well. As hypertension, anxiety and depression crush the overmedicated hope of the world. You see natural law or karma cannot be tricked it cannot be paid off or cheated.

We did not create the rules. Yes this means someone else or something else did. That other than is greater than us,its really a quite simple.

Now do I know for certain because Jesus or king James or the Koran or Torah tell me.
No, once again quite simply the only way we can know anything about our Creator is to know ourselves. To turn inward not outward for knowledge and guidence. Does that mean these books are not of value? No but they are not the rule book.

Natural law is the rule book. That's how the game is played.

Ummmm... no offense, but you're not making much sense here. What do you mean we can't create anything better than natural? I can point to several low efficiency, flawed "designs" in nature. Take for example, the production of Adenosine Tri Phophate, this is the universal energy molecule for organisms on earth, what powers cellular and thus all activity. In humans the process for creating this molecule, necessary for life and even the most base level is...39% Which isn't impressive, given that even simple human devices like LED's are far more efficient. Now take for example the bacterial flagellar motor, it is far less efficient than a good diesel engine.

Now, you argue than hundreds will die for a "diamond bracelet". Diamonds are actually easy to make by artificial means, it's really just carbon atoms in a certain configuration. You can cheaply make diamonds from ashes, and people do- The issue isn't with the human mind or technological progress, the issue is with people.

Now you say "we did not create the rules..." and you go on to assert that because we didn't design the universe that something did, but you offer no evidence of this creator(and you'd be the first to by the way). So no, I'm sorry, but it isn't simple, your assertions are unfounded and I'd need to be a gullible mental invalid to believe them.

You say you know things for certain because of ancient "holy scripture" with no original documents, written decades or centuries after the fact by people who don't know anything about anything. You know how many things Jesus got wrong? He directly contradicts himself during his "Sermon on the Mount". In Matthew 5:38-42 he changes the "eye for an eye" dogma; but earlier in Matthew:18 he says, "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.". Do you even read your bible, or just preach it, cause I advise you to crack open "the good book" and actually study it from time to time, or even better... read a science book.

I understand that it's very easy to become overwhelmed at all the negativity in this world. But when you do this, you are only seeing part of the world.

For example, there are plenty of companies who test their products on animals in cruel ways. But there are also companies who refuse to do those things. It would be an injustice to judge all companies based on the former example, while ignoring the latter example.

The world likes to shove negativity in your face, smothering you with it so that's all you see. But there is so much more out there. There ARE inventors, scientists, corporations, etc. who genuinely care about humanity, just as there are individuals such as yourself who are genuinely concerned for the state of the world. It's just that these kinds of people don't make headlines.

Looking "Inward" is what has brought us to this mess. The powers that be have led us all down a path of individualism and personal gain. It is this brainwashing that has created this monster and divided our communities into nothing more than scared little lab rats afraid someone is going to get our piece of the pie. Greed and pure arrogance has been the driving force to our destruction. Not scripture, not government, not the guy next door. WE as a whole are responsible for the mess we are in, for even if you are not a part of the crime neither did you stop it.

The native peoples and civilizations that exist as a community, of extended family and take care of each other as a way of life are the ones who are not heavily medicated greed machines are hell bent on greed. Sometimes the old ways are better, and if we don't wake up to the "individualism" lies soon it will be mankind who will be responsible for our own destruction. Take responsibility for yourself and quit placing the blame on some war between entities you can't compete with or change.

Indeed it seems "GOD" can't create anything without messing up. More than 95% of all life that ever existed is now extinct. The Andromeda Gallaxy is on a collision course with our own.

We may mess up, make mistakes and screw things up but think of all the great we have done over the last few hundred years. Think of the break-throughs in medicine, in astronomy. We can only stand on the shoulders of giants, and yes we will make mistakes.

Where the White Man Went Wrong
Indian Chief Two Eagles was asked by a white government official, "You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances. You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done."

The Chief nodded in agreement. The official continued, "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

The Chief stared at the government official for over a minute and then calmly replied. "When white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water. Women did all the work, Medicine man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing; all night having sex."

Then the chief leaned back and smiled. "Only white man dumb enough to think he can improve system like that!"

I'm sure a lot of people will have seen this quote before, but it kind of resonated with what you say in your op.

I will say as both a scientist and a panentheist that I disagree with your statement however. Humanity as an entity in itself is moving towards something. What that something is I do not know (global conciousness....?) however I have faith enough that it will be good. The world is more connected than ever, the rate of technological innovation is growing faster and faster.....

What you see now are the teething pains of humanity as it gets used to the fact that for the 1st time since the evolution of man 200,000 years ago, we have gotten to a point where our actions as humanity can actually effect things globally. This began happening around the time of the industrial evolution but it has only been since the 80's that we as humans have actually recognised the the global ramifications of our actions. And only now (20 years later) are we even attempting to fix it. Humans have been doing whatever they want for so long and getting away with it, it is very difficult to break out of that thought pattern.

There is always a lag time between technology and learning how to use it responsibly. But if you do believe in a higher power then you also have to admit that there is a reason we have intelligence enough to produce such technological innovation. We as humans now have so much power to implement change, yet the majority of people still operate on a very baseline, reactionary level of thinking. They are still only taking care of number 1, without realising what they do can now have a massive ripple effect. Or their thinking is influenced by very outdated religious ideals, or its not how their mother used to do it back in the 70's, or they are simply so caught up in the material world they fail to see the bigger picture

But things are slowly changing within the consiousness of the world. Possibly only because all the mistakes we've been making are finally starting to effect people and governments financially. But they are changing.

The something I alluded to earlier may be a NWO, a change in global consiousness, possibly even a further innovation in the field of renewable energy. I have very serious doubts that it will have anything to do with reptilians, the rapture or the illuminati but we are moving towards it at an ever increasing rate.

And I think it will be a good thing. Why? Because the world is big enough and ugly enough to take care of herself, and we are all part of that world. Sounds a little wishy washy new age-ish i know. But things are much simpler than most people suspect.....

Electric lights, the written word, dehumidifiers, electric fans...

you forget that most of these things (apart from written word) cause radiation and guess what that does......

Here that all you scientists, inventors, and pride engorged people.

Pride-engorged? You do realize that you're using the internet, an invention made possible by 'scientists' and 'inventors', right?

yet again radiation, to further prove my first point and also the internet can be used to monitor selected individuals for many reasons, market research etc...

We cannot invent one thing that is better than natural.

Internet. There's noting natural about it and it's a hell of a lot better than natural communication methods.

ou may be correct on this one, where would we be today without the internet, but then again one of mans known suicide machines (radiation)

We can't even do devistation better than nature.

Well, we could if we wanted to...we just don't feel like creating the largest nuke we can and dropping it into a major fault line because we're not stupid.

We can be very stupid and nature can come and totally wipe out that nuclear reactor we use to create that nuke or even the lab or whatever (im not really sure how a nuke is created and TBH i dont really want to care) by tidal waves, tsunamis, tornados or heavy hail storms.

Nuclear technology what a joke.

You do realize that nuclear power is humanity harnessing the natural process of nuclear fission, right? We even have evidence of naturally occurring nuclear reactors early in Earth's geologic history.

"naturally occurring in nuclear reactors" really since when did nuclear reactors become natural in your mind.

definition of nuclear fission - a nuclear reaction in which a heavy nucleus splits spontaneously or on impact with another particle, with the release of energy.

Oklo is the only known natural nuclear reactor but it died sometime ago leaving your statement invalid, and the only ones standing destroying our atmosphere because of one thing, IT IS MAN MADE

Every chemical creates a poison, for every 'supposed' benefit the detrimental side is worse.

Chemical? You do realize that everything material is a 'chemical', right? Dihydrogen monoxide, water. Wonder what the side effect to that one is...oh, urination.

Yes we understand that everything is a chemical, the op is obviously not talking about water particles (H2O), i find it hard to believe that you were unable to see what he/she meant. obviously it is not these naturally occuring chemicals that is being spoken of it is the man made ones that harm the environment

i found these to support my argument

Yes we have big screens, androids, an all types of trinkets.

We also have life saving drugs, better nutrition, longer lives (30 years added to the average life span since WW2), better access to information, better communication, the ability to survive better climates, etc....

all those life saving drugs are created to keep the industry alive, when natural occurring healers for all life exist for example - Marijuana and other natural occur herbs and most drugs that you deem life saving have a cure for the treatment but cause other problems in the body. Plus these medicines only suppress the infection or disease it does not kill.

But we also have gmos poison water and radioactivity.

Radioactivity is naturally occurring. GMOS aren't bad, they feed millions of people each year that would otherwise go hungry. I do, however, agree that poisoning water supplies is a bad idea and we should find alternatives to ruining water.

i half agree with your post and half dont, i believe that we should all learn to gather our own water and learn to gather our food if we are to enhance ourselves as a species.

I think it all really took off with the patent process and synthetics. Since a natural substance cannot be patented they create these synthetic chemicals to taste or smell like the real thing.

Synthetics are regularly better than their natural versions. If you take a look at a great example that I'm sure you've used in your own life: aspirin. It is derived from a natural compound found in a certain tree bark...except they modified it and found a way to synthesize this modified version. What was the modification able to do? Well, it made it more potent and caused less stomach problems. It also allowed people to ingest a proper dosage without having to chew on a bunch of tree bark.

yes however these synthetic replacements will have other side effects where as the natural version will not.

to support my argument

All these diseases and starvation were ravaged upon us in the name of progress., diseases and starvation are stopped by progress. You do realize that smallpox isn't a disease anymore, right? People also don't regularly die of dysentery anymore either. We also happen to feed a greater percentage of people using modern farming methods than we would if we used more 'natural' methods.

yes it is good to use modern day farming methods or now i think about it is it? all the crops we eat have either been collected by a tractor or some other gathering vehicle, so more than likely petrol or fuel would have spilled onto some of the collected crop, i think this could mean that people out there are eating foods that have been literally dosed in petrol (unintentionally) further investigation would be good......

So you could have your diamond bracelet hundreds may have died. It is evident natural law is manifest here as well. As hypertension, anxiety and depression crush the overmedicated hope of the world. You see natural law or karma cannot be tricked it cannot be paid off or cheated.

Wow, so you just have a rant against modern society when you clearly display a lack of understanding of it. Also, you are using the internet.

how can we spread awareness without using the internet, there is no natural way because it wasent meant to be natural, it wasent meant to happen.......and yet again radiation.

We did not create the rules. Yes this means someone else or something else did. That other than is greater than us,its really a quite simple.

Or...maybe it all just happened naturally and we're a byproduct of natural forces. This is quite possibly the most overused argument for the existence of a 'creator' and it's the most easily thwarted: where is your evidence that something created things? You don't have any, you're just perpetuating a logical fallacy of false analogy.

Quite honestly, I don't get your point here. You're just lashing out at all sorts of things that you don't understand and are demonstrating clear signs that you've been misinformed by media outlets....frankly, what the hell is your point? That we have to live by natural law? Which one exactly? F=ma isn't exactly a way to live my life. E=mc^2 doesn't tell me anything about how to live my life.

Evolution can prove a creator, what is one thing that separates us from other creatures on this planet, (ill give you a hint - its been mention all the way through this) each and every single one of us (human race) can create/invent something unique to each other, however we are the only creature that can do this. dont tell me ants build hives and bees build hives and meerkats build holes in the ground, see the thing is all of those creatures, all the ants, all the bees, all the meerkats build those things, without one being and more unique than the next.

with the evolutionary upgrade we are the only creature that can permanently change its entire environment, we built our own environment. so with that, there must have been a creature that build the natural occurring environment, which we built over......

That creature is know as many things or many deities, some believe it was many creator gods or etc....
my personal belief is that it was GOD, but then god is nature, the law of nature is the law of god.
