I had the good fortune of coming across the book, The Stars: A New Way to See Them by H. A. Rey some time ago. Rey’s book helped me understand the relationship between the earth’s daily rotation, its yearly revolution around the sun, and the place and appearance of the constellations. When I share my knowledge of the night sky with others, I begin by asking if anyone in the group can find the North Star because it is our frame of reference for what appears elsewhere. Almost invariably, someone in the group says, “The North Star is the brightest star, right?” Polaris is certainly visible to the naked eye, but as a second magnitude star in Ursa Minor, it is very far from the brightest, the Dog Star Sirius. There is no logical reason to assume that the earth’s axis conveniently points to the brightest star, yet people make that unwarranted assumption quite often.
A similar illogical and unwarranted assumption prevails relating to the landing spot of Noah’s ark. People—highly educated people—are sure that Noah’s ark landed on the remote and inaccessible heights of Mount Ararat, a 17,000-foot volcanic mountain in modern-day Turkey. The Book of Genesis does not say that the ark landed near the top of Ararat, or even on Ararat, but rather “on the mountains of Ararat” (Genesis 8:4).
All through out history there have been these “blood feuds” over God’s people. Even Jesus Himself was no stranger to controversy, and you wonder how many Christians today would have been on the Pharisees’ side condemning Him for “breaking the law” and “being a friend of sinners” and “lo, he deceives the people”, and “are ye also deceived?”
Most of these Christians who are like that, — and we wouldn’t want to mention any names, now would we?– would never even realise that they would have been on the wrong side. They think that since they are ”Christians” they have “discernment”, even to tell right from wrong, much like many other Muggles of today can tell “Right from Left”, yet don’t realise they are all caught up in a bankers’ created paradigm meant to divide and conquer them, so they can rule over them. Meaning, NO discernment whatsoever!
Many times, what Christians call “discernment” is nothing else but a severe case of a critical spirit! Judgmental, stuck on themselves, conservative, reactionary, old bottles, who say, “Yeah the new wine may be what you like, but we prefer the old wine!”
Was Ron Wyatt God’s archaeologist? Well, if you listen to James Randi and Michael Shermer the famous Skeptics, of course he wasn’t! Considering the source that should be encouraging to Ron’s surviving relatives, who very much believe in their father and husband. Ron doesn’t need the encouragement anymore, he was received into Heaven with flying colors. What do I mean? Continue reading Was Ron Wyatt God’s Archaeologist?→

Fu Xi and Nü Wa pictured with dragon tails intertwined. (Picture by Ma Lin 160 AD) Every school-child in China, Taiwan, and other Chinese places, learns already early on about their original Chinese patriarchs and their histories. But the most ancient Chinese history has become quite embellished over 4 1/2 thousand years and changed into mythology. As a result, the 21st Century Chinese are quite confused about their earliest primo-genitors, and if it weren’t for a very interesting discovery that this article reveals, their earliest patriarchs would have stayed obscure until the end of time.

The early Earth, we can safely assume, did not start out cracked like this egg from its pristine beginnings.
Scientists now agree that the early Earth featured just one original continent named ‘Pangaea’, reminiscent of Chinese history’s ‘Panku.’ Historians and geologists have no clue what actually hit the Earth’s crust, or how the upper layer of 8 km thick oceanic crust and 35-60 km continental crust got cracked, nor why its fragments or plates then began to drift apart from each other, other than labeling it ‘plate tectonics & subduction’. That’s about as good an explanation as blaming “why there are murders” on “violence.” It does not explain what cracked ‘Pangaea’ in the first place, which would also indicate the real cause of why the continents drifted apart!
This article aims to try to solve this foundational mystery: “Why and how did Pangaea’s crust crack!”
