Howdy!  How are all of you? I am well and still kicking (meaning I am still alive), ha ha! I had a friend a little while back approach me with the question of a flat earth. A family member had approached her with a piece of paper with some drawings and definitions explaining why a flat earth is the real thing. She was confused because the family member is well versed in science and she trusts him.

There is a reason the “new” flat earth theory has become so popular. Most people have become complacent and comfortable in their own lives. And unless they are in the science field, they “rarely have the knowledge readily at hand to refute the case for a flat earth, most people who take this approach soon look for help. That search for help usually is on the Internet, whereupon they quickly find a slew of websites and videos promoting the flat earth, but precious little, if any, refuting it. Some people emerge a few hours later, their egos bruised and their intelligence a bit insulted, because they still think that the flat earth is nonsense but are frustrated that they can’t seem to answer many of the arguments they’ve just encountered. Still others never emerge from this rabbit hole and end up

thinking that maybe the conspiracy theories that they have encountered along the way may be right.”

A scary, but true line of thought. Hence, I am writing this blog! I am going to present evidence for a round (spherical) earth…

First and foremost, as a Christian I must mention that scripture speaks of a spherical earth. Isaiah 40:22 (KJV) states It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in”. Not only does this scripture mention the earth is round it also speaks of an expanding universe. But does round or circular mean spherical? In combination with other scriptures that mention seasons, which occur because the earth’s tilt wobbles creating the seasons, it does. It is impossible with a flat earth to have frigid winter in the northern hemisphere and hot summer in the southern

hemisphere. On a flat earth, everywhere would be the same season. It takes a sphere to make seasons. Here are just two of the many times seasons are mentioned in the Bible; Genesis 1:14 “And God 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 Psalm 104:19  states “He appointed the moon for seasons…” So scripture tells us the earth is  round and that it is arched. That would make a sphere.

Since photos can be manipulated, I am not going to include them. Rather let’s take a look at how the ancient people figured out the earth was round. “The earliest recorded discussion of a spherical earth is from Pythagoras in the sixth century BC. Pythagoras correctly understood that the cause of lunar eclipses is the shadow of the earth falling on the moon. This can happen only when the moon is opposite the sun in our sky, which coincides with full moons. The earth’s shadow is larger than the moon, so we cannot see the entire shadow at once. However, during a lunar eclipse we see the earth’s shadow creep across the moon. Because the edge of the earth’s shadow always is a portion of a circle, the
earth’s shadow must be a circle. If the earth were flat and round, similar to a disk, it could cast a circular shadow, but only for lunar eclipses that occur at midnight. For a lunar eclipse at sunrise or sunset, the earth’s shadow would be an ellipse, a line, or a rectangle, depending upon how thick the disk was compared to its diameter.”2 Only a sphere will have an unchanging circular shadow irrespective of its position. 

In addition, the height of the North star in the northern horizon varies in relation to how far north or south you are or travel. “This can happen only if north-south motion is along an arc…There is a region around the North Star in which the stars do not rise or set but instead are continually up and appear to go in circles around the north celestial pole. We call these circumpolar stars, meaning ‘around the pole.’”3 Below the equator, there is a different set of stars and constellations. Both regions are large and the southern circumpolar region is never visible above the equator and the northern circumpolar region is never visible below the equator. Also there are stars (and of course constellations) which appear in both the northern and southern hemisphere at different times of the year (seasons). The constellation Orion is probably the most famous, known as the winter constellation in both the north and south hemispheres. Circumpolar regions in space as views from our planet can only happen if the earth is a sphere.

the above three photos track the
big and little dippers circumventing

Many flat earther’s support the Bedford Level Experiment as proof of a flat earth. "In 1838, Samuel Birley Rowbotham claimed to have conducted an experiment on the Old Bedford River on the Bedford Level near Norfolk, England. The Bedford Level is a six-mile stretch of the Old Bedford River that is straight, allowing an uninterrupted view along the six miles…Rowbotham waded into the river and used a telescope held eight inches above the water to observe a rowboat with a five-foot high mast row away. Rowbotham claimed that he could see the mast when it was six miles away, even though the spherical earth required that the top of the mast be
about eleven feet below his horizon (as viewed from eight inches above the water). Rowbotham concluded that the earth must be flat.”4 However in 1870 Alfred Russel Wallace tried a similar experiment… Wallace examined two objects of the same exactness “from a telescope mounted on a bridge. He found that the nearer object appeared higher than the more distant one, consistent with the results predicted by a spherical earth.”5 This is caused by the less dense air as height increase which changes the refraction
Rowbotham's experiment

causing distant objects to appear higher than they actually are. “This well-understood effect causes the sun to appear to rise about two minutes earlier than it actually does.”
6 Funny how the flat earther’s don’t mention this Bedford River experiment which involved more science than Rowbotham’s experiment. They have become willfully ignorant of Wallace’s experiment and many more of the same experiments that have been repeated since 1838. “When those experiments are properly conducted to minimize the effect of refraction, they are consistent with a spherical earth.”6

Ancient sources, such as Aristotle, also mentioned that the hulls of ships disappeared before their masts did as ships sailed away. This would happen only if the earth is spherical. Hence the need for the crow’s nest atop the highest mast of the ship. From such a height other ships and land could be spotted much sooner than from the deck. In places around the world where land is separated by water of appropriate
Crow's nest at top

distances, a person could stand on the shore and not see the opposite side. However if they climbed a nearby bluff, hill, mountain, or even a high-rise the distant shoreline will come into view. This would not be possible if the earth was flat. Only a spherical earth would make this possibility.

If the earth was flat you should be able to see to the very end of it. You should be able to sail a ship, or drive/walk to the edge of the earth…and see nothing beyond that. No water, no land, because the earth is flat. But that is not the case. Many times ships, airplanes, jets and even hot air ballon have sailed or flown around the world. I have been in an airplane many time and the result is always the same. I can

see the arc of the horizon.

So I make this simple challenge to those who still struggle with the flat earth theory: call someone in a different time zone. Both parties then can examine where the sun is in relation to the sky. The farther apart the time zone the farther apart the sun will be to each party. If far enough, one will be standing and speaking to the opposite party in complete darkness while the other is in bright sunlight or cloudy daylight which ever it may be. Then explain to me, or whoever how that is possible with a flat earth.

Until the next time,
God bless, and take care,

Good afternoon!

And what a hot afternoon it is for being September in this part of the world. I pray you all are well and so are your families. 

Speaking of this part of the world, have you ever heard of the multiverse theory? And no, its not like how the TV show “The Flash” depicts it! Many secular scientists and evolutionists claim that we are not alone in our universe. A multiverse, they argue, “…is just one of infinitely many universes, each having possibly different physical constants (and perhaps even different laws of physics). This
Courtesy of Answers in Genesis
multiverse, they say, removes the need for a supernatural Creator.”

Why? Because if there were multiverses, with possible different laws of physics and different physical constants, the likelihood of other worlds having properties that permit life to exist would be significant. They theorize that that the spreading out, or inflation, of our universe was not the beginning of the multiverse itself. “Inflation is supposedly still occurring in other regions of space, with other universes even now being created.”2

Can it really work? If looked into, the theory of multiverse has some major flaws. For example, “…the main ‘evidence’
wikimedia commons
for inflation is based upon circular reasoning—the fact that the big bang doesn’t work without inflation is counted as evidence for inflation! Moreover, modern inflation theory has become increasingly bizarre, which has led some theorists to criticize and abandon it. One of these critics is Massachusetts Institute of Technology cosmologist Max Tegmark, who says, ‘Inflation has destroyed itself. It logically self-destructed.’ Even Paul Steinhardt, a leading inflation theorist, has become a critic of the theory.”

In order for the multiverse theory to work, there not only has to be more than one universe, but there has to be life in these other universes. “In order for this argument to favor
evolution, these physical laws must also permit the formation of life from non-life, also known as chemical evolution or abiogenesis. But do the laws of physics and chemistry in our universe permit this?Apparently not. Evolutionists still cannot explain the origin of life, despite investing enormous amounts of time and money on the problem. If we really do live in a universe whose laws of physics and chemistry permit chemical evolution, why has it never been observed? And why are evolutionist researchers still unable to convincingly explain how life could have ‘naturally’ appeared?”4

With all the money, and all the intelligent resources, and all the experiments, and all the discoveries that have been made over the last seventy years, if multiverse were actually true, don’t you think there would have been something a little more solid than bizarre theories that leading theorists in that field walk away from?

So are there multiverses? In a way they are right. I know of two realms besides our own. But these are true. And have much evidence they exist. One is the Kingdom of Heaven, the other the principalities of darkness. Which one of these do you think rejoices at mankind’s idea of a multiverse?

  As the holy and ancient scripture of Isaiah 45:18 states: "For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.”

And what a beautiful world God has created!

Good afternoon everyone!

How is everyone today? I am holding steady in my recovery of lung issues, which is much better than getting worse, ha ha! I thank all of you who have prayed for me and this little ministry. And so here in the United States of America, it is that time of year where the children head back to school after a two to three month break. Originally it was put into place so the children could help their family with the summer chores of tending animals and crops.but in today’s world it is a time of play and summer jobs.

Speaking of school, I ran across a fascinating article about a different type of school. Fish schools! I would say that most of us have seen pictures of fish schooling or videos or film footage. It is a wondrous sight! This type of fish
Commons, courtesy of Wikipedia 
behavior is an incredible type of group self-organization that is instinctive. Swimming together in the same direction in one fluid motion of turns and ups and downs and different speeds requires following the routes of attraction and repulsion in relation to the other fish around them. This allows them to avoid bumping into each other as opposed to shoaling (when fish swim in the same general area but in different directions or individually in the same direction). Scientists believe this behavior protects against ambush predators by reducing the frontal area, where predators tend to attack. It is also thought that by the whole body of fish moving like one unit, they may be mistaken for a much larger organism.

So what is so fascinating about this? Well, “A limestone shale slab from the Green River Formation, USA, has incredibly ‘captured’ a mass of 257 fish swimming together in a school. The fish, each just under 1 in (2.5 cm) long, belong to an extinct species, Erismatopterus levatus. Just before being fossilized they were swimming in the same direction. Swimming together in a school is a dynamic process and this slab amazingly preserves, in ‘freeze frame’ as it were, this coordinated collective motion. Such discoveries are rare. As pointed out in the New York Times, ‘It’s difficult, for instance, to find evidence of schooling fish in the fossil record. You need just the right circumstances to fossilize something like a school of fish in place within a rock. Then, that rock has to survive intact long enough for a paleontologist to discover it and study it.’”1

The only right circumstances that could produce such
wikipedia, commons
amazing fossils would have been created in a catastrophic flood. Although some creation scientists argue this could be a post-Flood fossilization, the overwhelming physical evidence of being in a formation with many other animals and plants begs the difference: “The Green River Formation is best known among paleontologists for its superbly preserved fossil fish. Some slabs of the Green River Formation contain hundreds of individual fish and likely represent an instantaneous die-off. Dozens of fish species have been identified.”

“The Green River Formation is the site at which the fossil of
Courtesy of National Park Service
the oldest known flying mammal was found. This organism, a bat, Icaronycteris index, was preserved with its skeleton, membranes and cartilage intact.”

“The Green River Formation, the topmost layer of rock, contains the most extensive record of fossilized freshwater fish in North America. Remarkably intact fossils of more than 20 species of fish, 100 varieties of insects, a vast number of plants, and many examples of other Eocene animals such as crocodilians. 4

What could cause such a special set of circumstances? the global Flood of four thousand years ago. that is one reason

the biologic life forms are so well preserved. it hasn’t been millions of years. The oblong shape of the school also matches extant (living today) fish schools and, ‘is thought to protect against ambush predators by reducing the frontal area, 
where these predators tend to attack’. It is the capturing of this motion, a snapshot in time, that means the fossil was formed quickly, and thus by implication, the rock also.”5 
courtesy of Nation Park Service
The scientific team from Creation Ministries International also gave many other “fascinating examples of what they called ‘frozen behaviors' in fossils: ‘examples include fighting dinosaurs, queueing trilobites and insects in copulation. These fossils are assumed to result from rapid burial, which preserves individual positions during interactions.’ Yes indeed, but this is completely contrary to the uniformitarian ‘slow-n-gradual’ paradigm that pervades school textbooks and pop-science programs. Quick forming fossils contained inside rapidly formed layers of sedimentary rock, such as the ones listed above and many other examples…consistently point to one thing: the sedimentary rocks layers that we see all around the world are not millions of years old.”

Ahhh, the blessing of seeing the Truth in our beautiful planet. When I first glanced at the picture of the school of fish, I actually thought is was a picture of fish in water, ha ha! Thank you Jesus for letting me see clearly.

God bless, and take care!
Until next time,

How is everyone this week? I have slowly been getting better and so have a little more energy. But I tend to take advantage of this new development and do more work which exhausts me! Ha ha!

Speaking of new developments, I wanted to write a bit more about the metal tables of last week’s blog. 

Even after scientists analyzed the content and came to the conclusion that the tablets date from within a few years of Jesus’ ministry, and initial metallurgical tests indicate some of the books could date from the first century AD, and people of authority have stated that all “this provides very strong evidence that the objects are of great age, consistent with the studies of the text and designs that suggest an age of around 2000 years,”1 there are still doubters.

And even with the researchers stating to the press, “While there may be variations in decay and corrosion that depend upon the environmental conditions in which the objects were stored or hidden, there is a strong underlying theme of decay from within the metal,”2 so many accredited people have said the codexes are fake. 

“Professor Roger Webb of the University of Surrey's Nodus Laboratory from the Ion Beam Center stated, seem to concur with on this point: ‘All charges of fakery and forgery raised by bloggers and some scholars should now be dismissed to allow proper study and preservation of the sites in which these items were discovered. This will provide additional evidence that should enable more accurate dating and better interpretation of the meaning and purpose of the items.’”3

Everything has been questioned. However, David Elkington, a British scholar of ancient religious history and archaeology “…told Christian Today that they had a corrosion expert study the image of Christ on the metal tablet, and without a doubt, it is genuine. He described the image, ‘His face is surrounded by a halo and he appears every inch the Nazarene. The Codex was sealed on all sides and then placed in lead box before being sealed away in the cave in Northern Jordan.’"4

David Elkington asks that with the new test results the tablets be given a fair trial. “Any remaining doubts must now be answered by proper excavation of the site in Jordan and carried out by proper archaeologist with impartial objectives.”5

“The archaeometallurgist and former Director of Antiquities in Amman, Dr. Ziad Al Saad has declared the discovery of the Jordan codexes as one of the most important finds in that country. He said: ‘These manuscripts are a part of Jordan's heritage and global heritage, and we hope to share it soon with the rest of the world.’
“The tablets seem to be gaining some ground in the area of recognition, but you’ll have to wait and see what the researchers next move will be in discovering more about these controversial codexes.”6

Can you imagine that? The picture had to have been sculpted by someone who actually saw our Lord incarnate! How insightful, Perhaps even one of the apostles…

What else will be found? All in God’s timing!

Until next time, God bless and take care!

Good afternoon!

I pray all is well with my fine friends in the United State of America and abroad! My week went well and I managed to get much needed work completed or at least started.

Speaking of abroad (except for those in Jordan), an astounding discovery that could change history was made in Jordan. Metal books bound by metal rings that actually mention Jesus. These types of books are called codexes,
(as opposed to scrolls). The ones found in Jordan were first discovered in 2008 but didn’t get officially announced until 2011. It was discovered by a Jordanian Bedouin who, according to some reports, was given the codices by his grandfather who discovered them after a flood. They were discovered in a remote cave in an area were many caves abound. That part of Jordan is known for Christian refugees
to have fled after the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD.

When the discovery of 70 codexes was announced on BBC news, but “A number of scholars came forward to brand them fakes, most without ever seeing the codexes. Now tests conducted by Professor Roger Webb and Professor Chris Jeynes at the University of Surrey's Nodus Laboratory at the Ion Beam Centre, confirm that the tablet is compatible with a comparative sample of ancient Roman lead unearthed from an excavation site in Dorset.

“The experts said that the codex they tested 'does not show the radioactivity arising from polonium that is typically seen in modern lead samples, indicating that the lead of the codex was smelted over one hundred years ago'. They went on to explain how the testing suggests that the artifacts are indeed 2,000 years old.

“'While there may be variations in decay and corrosion that depend upon the environmental conditions in which the objects were stored or hidden, there is a strong underlying theme of decay from within the metal,' said the researchers in a press statement. ‘It is oxidizing and breaking down at an atomic level to revert to its natural state. This is not witnessed in lead objects that are several centuries old and is not possible to produce by artificial acceleration (e.g. through heating).’”

References to Messiah in ancient writing is depicted by an eight point star which is found throughout the books and they mention the names of the apostles Peter, John, and James, as well as Jesus Christ. There is even a “drawing” of Jesus! This is a photo of that page in the codex, but it is hard to see. 

David Elkington, a British scholar of ancient religious history and archaeology, and one of the very few who had a chance to examine the codexes says,
the books suggest Christ was part of a Hebrew sect dating back 1,000 years to King David, who worshipped in the Temple of Solomon and believed in a male-female God. He also says the codexes say that Jesus didn’t come to start a new religion but to revise the ancient tradition of King David. I have to question that for several reasons…since 2011, has any other expert examined the codexes? Also parts are very hard to read and not all of the paleo-Hebrew was translated. And most important, the Bible says Jesus DID come to start a new way; for He is the Way, the Truth and the Life!

Professor Roger Webb of the University of Surrey's Nodus Laboratory from the Ion Beam Center stated, “If the lead is old, the writing is old. But there is no guarantee that what is written on them is true.” 

There is one way to know beyond any doubt if it is true. If it matches the Bible, it’s true, if it doesn’t, it’s not, for all scripture is God breathed.

Until next time, God bless and take care!

Good morning world!

I hope all of you have had a great few weeks. I have been—and still am—very sick, so again I apologize for not putting out a blog for the last two weeks. So with my illness and exhaustion, I am buried with work!

Speaking of being buried, I have met Christians, even some creation scientists, who believe the great pyramids of Egypt were build before the global flood. Could this be true? I always thought that everything was destroyed in the great Noachian Flood. Who is correct? Let’s take a look…

According to Egyptologists, the Great Pyramids of Giza
were build about 200 years before the global flood. But if you have read my earlier blogs, you will recall I wrote one on the Egyptian time scale and how it has been incorrectly interpreted. In short, Manetho was a priest commissioned by Ptolomy II, king of Ptolemaic Egypt, in the 3rd century B.C. to compile the history of Egypt. Taking all of the dynasties, traditional chronology sequence has placed them side by side. However this doesn’t take into consideration that more than one Egyptian dynasty existed during the same time. When that is
Courtesy of Answers in Genesis
done, the pyramids  line up nicely in history after the flood. 

There is physical evidence to support the revised Egyptian Chronology. First and quite obvious is there are no signs of serious water damage on the pyramids. If they had been under water for almost a full year, in a body of water so large it covered the entire earth, they would have taken quite a pounding. Yet, there is NO significant amount of water damage. 

Evidence number two; the pyramids are build on sedimentary layers filled with fossils, which creation scientists believe were laid down by the flood (see my previous blogs written on fossils and the global flood for an in depth reading). This then becomes evidence that the pyramids were constructed after the flood.

Evidence number three; in the Hebrew language, Egypt is translated as Mizraim. Mizraim is the son of Ham who is the third son of Noah. In other words, Mizraim is Noah’s, grandson. Since Noah’s sons, who came with him from the former per-flood world, did not have children until after the flood, it is further evidence that the Egyptians didn’t exist until after the flood, and after the Tower of Babel language split. 

Evidence number four; after the Flood, all the people on earth lived in one place and spoke one language. Egypt would not have appeared until the early post-Flood people dispersed after the one language was scrambled (Genesis 11:6,7) “The Lord said, ‘If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.’” And Genesis 10:5 confirms this; “From these the maritime peoples spread out into their territories by their clans within their nations, each with its own language.” And because Noah didn’t even begin to have grandsons until after he and his family stepped off the ark, the only logical conclusion is the Egyptians were from Noah’s grandson, Mizraim and his generations after.

All of this evidence makes it reasonable, logical and clear that the pyramids were constructed after the flood.

God bless and take care,
Willow Dressel 

PS, if you choose to watch the video were I got some of this information, there are parts of it (the adding 100 years to Noah and his sons before they had children) I don’t agree with. With the evidence I have given you today, and by researching my previous blogs, you will see the discrepancies. however everything else and certainly what I have included here are correct and have been thoroughly researched.
