IN the NEWS - Lion & Flag

SIGNS of the TIMES?
This week 2 politicians nailed Planned Parenthood. Rubio sent out his tweet contrasting the dead lion response to the Planned Parenthood Scandal response.
The Question is: HOW have we got so cold hearted as a nation that a dead Lion generates more outrage than the Hitleresque harvesting of human baby parts?

And because iniquity shall abound,

the love of many shall wax cold.

Matthew 24:12
"Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) on Wednesday questioned the lack of outrage over Planned
Parenthood, in the wake of widespread indignation at a Minnesota man accused of shooting a beloved lion. In a tweet on Tuesday, the GOP presidential candidate asked why there was a lack of outrage at the organization. It has come under fire after the release of controversial videos that show a Planned Parenthood executive discussing using aborted fetuses for research. Rubio connected it to "all this outrage over a dead lion." msn


The Second example is of a Facebook post by Palin who contrasted the outrage & protests over the Confederate flag vs. the lack of outrage by Planned Parenthood by simply asking a Question. 
But the bigger Question is: HOW have we got to this point in culture of seething hatred for a piece of cloth of the past--while human infants are being dismembered and "sold" in the 21st century????
" Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin went after Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, in a Facebook post that will certainly draw the fury of pro-abortion advocates.
Which symbol killed 90,000 black babies last year?” the post asks. Below is an image of the Confederate flag next to the Planned Parenthood logo." TheBlaze

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be......Without natural affection,...
2 Timothy 3:3
Summary:
Flags over human infants
Lions over human infants
The Love of many has waxed COLD...
P.S.----
As for the response of the Whiehouse?
* To the Planned Parenthood SCANDAL (whom this President also accepted a lot of money from for his campaigns): "The White House on Thursday dismissed the latest video accusing Planned Parenthood of selling fetal organs and tissue, calling the group behind the sting "extremists on the right." CNN
* As for it's response to the Lion killed in Africa: "The White House said on Thursday that it will review the public petition to extradite the American dentist who allegedly killed "Cecil," a Zimbabwean lion." Reuters

Creation Moment 7/31/2015 - NatGeo Surprised by young Pluto?


Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
declare, if thou hast understanding.
Job 38:4
"Planetary scientists are dumbfounded by more evidence of youth at Pluto, both on the surface and in the atmosphere.
The lightest part of the left (west) lobe of the “heart”-shaped light region, named tentatively Tombaugh Regio, appears to be a source of ices that spread over adjacent regions by wind or sublimation, eliminating craters that would otherwise indicate an old surface, although some infilled craters are evident.
Michael Summers relished the new atmospheric image that stunned the science team, showing haze high in the atmosphere backlit by the sun, reaching 100 miles above the surface—five times higher than predicted. The atmosphere shows structure. Stern said that the pressure at the base of the atmosphere is lower than predicted. Summers explained that complex hydrocarbons, like ethylene and acetylene, are produced by solar radiation of methane, producing the red hue of tholins on the surface. He did not explain how much of the material should accumulate over 4.5 billion years, nor how the atmosphere could be replenished to the level we observe today.
The team is speculating that Pluto’s atmosphere may be in stages of collapse as the body moves away from the sun after its 1989 perihelion. Perhaps the atmosphere resurrects each orbital lap of 248 earth-years. Even so, during its assumed lifetime of 4.5 billion years, Pluto should have made over 18 million orbits by now.
None of the articles so far are asking where Pluto got its methane. If it were not replenished, it would quickly be depleted (in geologic terms) by solar radiation forming tholins on the surface. 
  National Geographics reporter says, “It’s surprising to see that amount of activity … on such a small world in a part of the solar system where failed planetary building blocks revolve in perpetual dusk.” CEH

Rise of Secular Apostasy within Christendom


"The Great Awakening, however, coincided with the Enlightenment, the foundational movement toward secularistic apostasy throughout Christendom.

John Wesley and Voltaire were contemporaries.


The Enlightenment simply meant the Reformation stripped of it's
      religious premises,
      subject matter,
      and motivation.

Because of the variety of religious opinions which resulted fro the Protestant ideal of lay Bible study, "enlightened" Deists concluded that the Bible was too specific in contents and too peculiar in its impact on diverse readers to inspire religious consensus. Ignoring the evangelical answer, they rejected peculiar Bible doctrine in favor of the general truths of natural revelation.
Trends in science followed suit.

Secularists now began to conceive of science, not as knowledge, but as an endless quest for knowledge, that is, a set of learned rituals for confirming agnosticism."
Origin of the Nations p.255 John Pilkey
...always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth.

"Humans are NOT to blame for global warming, says Greenpeace co-founder, as he insists there is 'no scientific proof' climate change is manmade

  • Patrick Moore has poured cold water on manmade global warming theories
  • The Canadian said that a hotter earth would actually be better for humans

    He told The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee: ‘There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years. If there were such a proof it would be written down for all to see. No actual proof, as it is understood in science, exists.’" DailyMail

Creation Moment 7/30/2015 - M,N,R Genetics support Bible

"It comes as a surprise to most people to hear that there is abundant evidence that the entire human
race came from two people just a few thousand years ago (Adam and Eve), that there was a serious population crash (bottleneck) in the recent past (at the time of the Flood), and that there was a single dispersal of people across the world after that (the Tower of Babel). It surprises them even more to learn that much of this evidence comes from evolutionary scientists.

Y chromosome (which is only found in males and which is passed on directly from father to son) and in the mitochondrial DNA (a small loop of DNA that we nearly always inherit from our mothers only; males do not pass it on to their children). These two pieces of DNA record some startling facts about our  past.


 And the Lord God formed man out of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7

 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. Genesis 2:21–22

These simple statements have profound implications.
They put a limit on the amount of diversity we should find in people living today. The Bible clearly says the human race started out with two people only. But how different were these two people? There is an intriguing possibility that Eve was a clone of Adam. The science of cloning involves taking DNA from an organism and using it to manufacture an almost perfect copy of the original. Here, God is taking a piece of flesh, with cells, organelles, and, importantly, Adam’s DNA, and using it to manufacture a woman. Of course, she could not be a perfect clone, because she was a girl! But what if God had taken Adam’s genome and used it to manufacture Eve? All he would have had to do was to leave out Adam’s Y chromosome and double his X chromosome and, voilá, instant woman!

Your genome is like an encyclopedia (almost literally). And, like an encyclopedia, the genome is broken down into volumes, called chromosomes, but you have two copies of each volume (with the exception of the X and Y chromosomes; women have two Xs but men have one X and one Y). Imagine comparing two duplicate volumes side by side and finding that one word in a particular sentence is spelled differently in each volume (perhaps “color” vs “colour”). Can you see that if Eve was a clone of Adam, there would have been, at most, two possible variants at any point in the genome? If Eve was not a clone, however, there would have been, at most, four possible variants at any point in the genome (because each of the original chromosomes came in four copies). This still allows for a lot of diversity overall, but it restricts the variation at any one spot to 2, 3, or 4 original readings.

Does this fit the evidence? Absolutely! Most variable places in the genome come in two versions and these versions are spread out across the world. There are some highly variable places that seem to contradict this, but most of these are due to mutations that occurred in the different subpopulations after Babel.

There are indications, however, that Eve may not have been a clone. The ABO blood group is a textbook example of a gene with more than two versions. There are three main versions of the blood type gene (A, B, and O). However, many, but not all, people with type O blood carry something that looks very much like a mutant A (the mutation prevents the manufacturing of the type A trait on the outside of cells). So here is a gene with more than two versions, but one of the main versions is clearly a mutation. This is true for many other genes, although, as usual, there are exceptions. The important take home point is that essentially all of the genetic variation among people today could have been carried within two people, if you discount mutations that occurred after our dispersion across the globe. This is a surprise to many.

About 10 generations after Creation, a severe, short bottleneck occurred in the human population. From untold numbers of people, the entire world population was reduced to eight souls with only three reproducing couples.

 So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood. Genesis 7:7

 Now the sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth… These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated. Genesis 9:18–19

We can draw many important deductions from these statements. For instance, based on Genesis 7 and 9, how many Y chromosomes were on the Ark? The answer: one. Yes, there were four men, but Noah gave his Y chromosome to each of his sons. Unless there was a mutation (entirely possible), each of the sons carried the exact same Y chromosome. We do not know how much mutation occurred prior to the flood. With the long life spans of the antediluvian patriarchs, it may be reasonable to assume little mutation had taken place, ...The amount of mutation may be a moot point, however, for, if it occurred, the Flood should have wiped out most traces of it (all of it in the case of the Y
chromosome).

How many mitochondrial DNA lineages were on the Ark? The answer: three. Yes, there were four women, but the Bible does not record Noah’s wife as having any children after the Flood (in this case, girl children). And notice the claim in Gen 9:19, “These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.”

The evidence from mitochondrial DNA fits our model just as neatly as the Y chromosome data. As it turns out, there are three main mitochondrial DNA lineages found across the world. The evolutionists have labeled these lines “M”, “N”, and “R”, so we’ll refer to them by the same names. They would not say these came off the Ark. It also turns out that M, N, and R differ by only a few mutations. This gives us some indication of the amount of mutation that occurred in the generations prior to the Flood.

Let’s assume ten female generations from Eve to the ladies on the Ark. M and N are separated by about 8 mutations (a small fraction of the 16,500 letters in the mitochondrial genome). R is only 1 mutation away from N. This is an indication of the mutational load that occurred before the Flood. Given the assumption that mutations occur at equal rates in all lines, about four mutations separate M and N each from Eve (maybe four mutations in each line in ten generations). But what about R? It is very similar to N. Were N and R sisters, or perhaps more closely related to each other than they were to M? We’ll never know, but it sure is fascinating to think about.

One more line of evidence crops up in the amount of genetic diversity that has been found within people worldwide. Essentially, much less has been found than most (i.e., evolutionists!) predicted. However, the reason for this lack of diversity is..... First, the human race started out with only two people. Second, the human race is not that old and has not accumulated a lot of mutations, despite the high mutation rate. Third, there actually was a bottleneck event, Noah’s Flood!

There is one more verse in this section that we need to discuss:

 These were the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations, in their nations; and from these the nations were divided on the earth after the flood. Genesis 10:32


At Babel, God did not separate the nations according to language. He used language to separate them according to paternal (male) ancestry! This has monumental significance and is the key to understanding human genetic
history. Paternal sorting would lead to specific Y chromosome lineages in different geographical locations. Since males and females from the three main families should have been freely intermixing prior to this, it also leads to a mixing of the mitochondrial lines. It is as if God put all the people into a giant spreadsheet and hit a button called “Sort According to Father.” He then took that list and used it to divide up and separate the nations.

We already saw that Y chromosomes have little variation among them. We now add the fact that this little bit of variation is almost always geographically specific. That is, after the nations were separated according to Y chromosome, mutations occurred in the various lines. Since the lines were sent to specific geographical areas, the mutations are geographically specific. The current distribution of Y chromosome lines is a tremendous confirmation of the biblical model.

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) adds another confirmation. We have already learned that there are three main lineages of mtDNA. We now add the fact that these three lineages are more or less randomly distributed across the world. Also, the various mutations within each of the three main families of mtDNA are geographically specific as well. In other words, as the three mixed mitochondrial lines were carried along with the Y chromosome dispersal, each line in each area began to pick up new mutations, just like we would predict."

IN the NEWS - Boy Scouts going Gay now

Another sign of the times of RAPIDLY turning into the "days of Lot"....
"The Boy Scouts of America on Monday ended its ban on openly gay adult leaders.
The top Boy Scouts leaders, including Robert M. Gates, the current president and a former defense secretary who pushed for the new policy,....

Under the policy adopted Monday, discrimination based on sexual orientation will also be barred in all Boy Scouts offices and for all paid jobs — a step that could head off looming lawsuits in New York, Colorado and other states that prohibit such discrimination in employment.
One legal threat was immediately averted. In response to the change, the New York State attorney general, Eric T. Schneiderman, announced on Monday that his office was ending its investigation of the Scouts for violating state anti-discrimination laws.
The Boy Scouts’ national executive board, composed of 71 civic, corporate and church leaders, adopted the changes with 79 percent of those who participated in a telephone meeting voting in favor, according to an announcement issued by the Scouts. The announcement did not say how many board members were not present." yahoo

IN the NEWS - Obama takes Gay Gospel to Kenya

"President Barack Obama is in Ethiopia Monday, the first sitting American president to visit East Africa's second most populous nation. He's holding talks with Ethiopian and African Union leaders on counterterrorism, human rights, and regional security.
Obama wrapped up a two-day visit to Kenya Sunday, where he urged leaders in his father's homeland to root out corruption, treat women and minorities as equals, and protect the rights of homosexuals.
"I've been consistent all across Africa on this," the president said. "I believe in the principle of
treating people equally under the law, and that they are deserving of equal protection under the law and that the state should not discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation."
But in a tense exchange, Kenya's president rejected Obama's message on gay rights, saying it was one value Christian Kenya does not share with the United States.
"The fact of the matter is that Kenya, the United States, we share so many values, but there are some things that we must admit we don't share -- our culture, our society don't accept," President Uhuru Kenyatta said.
"This is why I repeatedly say that for Kenyans today, the issue of gay rights is really a non-issue," he continued. "We want to focus on other areas that are day-to-day living for our people."
In Kenya,.... this overwhelmingly Christian nation, many residents shrugged off the U.S. president's lecture on gay rights.
"Of course, the way President Obama talked about gays and what have you, lesbianism or transgender, whatever, according to him, you know, we took him as an American. He was answering like an American," Nairobi resident Ibrahim Lincoln said. "But according to our African cultures, the Christian beliefs -- we say no." AP
 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example...

Creation Moment - 7/29/2015 - Obama & Lucy



Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Romans 1:22,23
How? One way is by evolution...for man was made in the image of God, so by preaching evolution one is turning man (made in the image of God-God's image) into a beast.
"“Amazing,” President Barack Obama remarked, .....
Before him on a table in Ethiopia’s National Palace, neat, in open wood boxes, lay “Lucy,” aka AL-288-1, the 40-percent complete remains of a female human ancestor who lived 3.2 millions years ago, and, who at the time of her discovery in Ethiopia in 1974 by an American, represented the most complete, ancient tie to humankind.

Every single person here, 7 billion people, including Donald Trump, came down through the chain,” Zeresenay Alemseged, senior curator of anthropology at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco and Obama’s tour guide, told the president. Dinkeresh, as she is known to Ethiopians, is an Australopithecus afarensis, which came before Homo sapiens. Alemseged even let Obama touch one of Lucy’s bones, a thoracic vertebrae.
But the experience of stroking an ancient bone in this cradle of civilization seemed to make up at least a bit for Obama’s apparent frustration with his lack of personal contact on the Africa trip, and the dramas that dog him back home. 
I just met Lucy,” Obama told the assembled guests later in the evening at the State Dinner in his honor at the palace. Seeing those remains, he said, “We are reminded that Ethiopians, Americans, all the people of the world are part of the same human family, the same chain. And as one of the professors who was describing the artifacts correctly pointed out, so much of the hardship and conflict and sadness and violence that occurs around the world is because we forget that fact. We look at superficial differences as opposed to seeing the fundamental connection that we all share.”"

Despair & Cowardice...


Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord.
Exodus 14:13


"He cannot retreat;
he cannot go forward;
he is shut up on the right hand and on the left;
what is he now to do?


The Master's word to him is, Stand still.

Despair whispers,
Lie down and die; give it all up.
Cowardice says,
Retreat; go back to the worldling's way of action; you cannot play the Christian's part, it is too difficult.


.....Stand still;-keep the posture of an upright man."

IN the NEWS - Legal Prostituion Next? (In California)

For a prostitute is a deep pit;
an adulteress is a narrow well.
Proverbs 23:27 ESV
"Our hope in the lawsuit is to have the anti-prostitution law overturned as unconstitutional and invalidated in the state of California," says Maxine Doogan, a working prostitute and president of the Erotic Service Provider Legal, Education, and Research Project (ESPLER), a group that has filed a lawsuit against California's attorney general and several mayors. "We don't have equal protection under the law."


Reason TV's video breaks down the legal arguments underlying ESPLER's lawsuit with the help of legal expert and former California Supervising Deputy Attorney General Jerald L. Mosley. The case leans heavily on the precedent set by Lawrence v. Texas to argue that sexual privacy warrants protection under the 14th Amendment and also makes First Amendment arguments regarding freedom of association and, more specifically, "freedom to date."
The video also features a man who goes by the name "Bacchus," who suffers from a disability that makes having a normal sexual relationship challenging, as well as libertarian activist and sex worker Starchild." Reason.com
COMMENTS:
1) "Freedom of association" to legalize prostitution? Uhm, what about freedom of association for Christian businesses who don't want to participate in gay weddings & gay pride events?
2) The "14th amendment"? Isn't that the way they got 5 judges in black robes to legalize gay marriage? Here we go.......

Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?

"The lifeblood of Darwinism is high chronology. Evolution means nothing apart from vast periods of time. Such periods imply a world of mute prehistory, saharas of endless subhuman groping.

Darwinism is the end product of imaginative efforts to match the sea itself and the celestial sea of outer space with an appropriate reading of antiquity. Both the sea and outer space are natural realities which happen to feed the Baconian, scientific hunger for negative result: dimension without content."

Papal Notes - Reformation Over in 2017?

"Somewhere in Pope Francis’s office is a document that could alter the course of Christian history. It declares an end to hostilities between Catholics and Evangelicals and says the two
traditions are now “united in mission because we
are declaring the same Gospel”. The Holy Father is thinking of signing the text in 2017, the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, alongside Evangelical leaders.
Francis is convinced that the Reformation is already over. He believes it ended in 1999, the year the Catholic Church and the Lutheran World Federation issued a joint declaration on justification, the doctrine at the heart of Luther’s protest.
In 2006, the World Methodist Council also adopted the declaration. But not one major leader of “born-again” Christians has publicly endorsed the text. So most of the world’s 600 million Evangelicals don’t realise that the protest is over.
Francis .......An old-school Argentine Jesuit,
You can imagine his discomfort when, in 1999, he first celebrated Mass for charismatic Catholics. They spoke in tongues, like their Pentecostal counterparts, when he elevated the Host. But, as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, he began attending noisy, praise-filled gatherings of Evangelicals and Catholics.
But in 2006 he went on stage, where he knelt as Protestant leaders prayed over him. A pastor with a microphone hollered: “Fill him with your Holy Spirit and power, Lord! In the name of Jesus!” The image of the cardinal kneeling, head bowed, beneath the outstretched hands of Evangelicals was so startling that a traditionalist magazine ran the headline: “Buenos Aires, sede vacante. The archbishop commits the sin of apostasy”.
Ulf Ekman, a Swedish megachurch pastor who became a Catholic last year, agrees that many Evangelicals are afraid of “a Superchurch”. Still, he believes that old wounds can be healed by what he calls “a parallel approach”. “That is, both sides coming closer on equal terms and recognising each other with an approach of avoiding any appearance of submission and triumphalism, more converging then conversion.” This, of course, fits well with Francis’s own thinking, which he captures in pithy phrases such as “reconciled diversity” and “unity without uniformity”.
Thanks to Francis and the Catholic Charismatic Renewal movement, the faithful are likely to look considerably more like Evangelicals by the end of the century than they did at the beginning. But whether Evangelicals will be more Catholic remains to be seen." CatholicHerald

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart,
so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity:
for God loveth a cheerful giver.
v.6,7
I know you have a giving heart
I really don’t need to write to you about this ministry of giving for the believers..
.....For I know how eager you are to help,....
....it was your enthusiasm that stirred up many
of the Macedonian believers to begin giving.
v.1,2 NLT
Chapter 10
(Paul's Authority)
For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority,
which the Lord hath given us for edification,
and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:
That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.
For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful;
but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.
Those people should realize that our actions
when we arrive in person will be as forceful
as what we say in our letters from far away.
v.8-11
Vertical:
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
v.5
Horizontal:
We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves.
When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves,
they are not wise.
v.12
Chapter 11
(Lesson of Eve)
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty,
so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
v.3
As Gullible as Eve
You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you,
even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach,
or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received,
or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed.
v.4 NLT
BEWARE, the Lesson of Eve.....
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers,
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
v.13,14
Chapter 12
(Paul's personal Testimony)
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities,
 in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake:
for when I am weak, then am I strong.
v.10
His personal Affliction
Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited,
 I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.
v.7 NLT
His Testimony
For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
And he said unto me,
My grace is sufficient for thee:
for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities,
that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
v.8,9
Chapter 13
(Paul Signs Off)
 Finally, brethren, farewell.
Be perfect, be of good comfort,
 be of one mind,
live in peace;
and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
v.11
Paul's warning
I have already warned those who had been sinning
when I was there on my second visit.
Now I again warn them and all others,
 just as I did before,
that next time I will not spare them.
v.2 NLT
Paul's Prayer
Your restoration is what we pray for.
v.9 ESV
SUMMARY:
For we are not writing any other
things to you than what
you read or understand.
Now I trust you will understand,
even to the end.

Creation Moment 7/27/2015 - Mother Eve


"In the approximately 6,000 years since creation,
humans have gone through roughly 250 generations.

In each fertile female the embryonic sex cells undergo about 23 cell generations to produce approximately 7 million primary eggs in the developing ovary,
but this number is then selected back to about 1–2 million in the mature ovaries.
No more eggs are produced during the female’s lifetime.

Males, on the other hand,
continue to produce new sperm throughout life so they continue to accumulate mutations with age.
In the Hutterite family study mentioned above, 85% of SNPs came from fathers and only 15% from mothers.

Female DNA plays a foundational role in maintaining the viability of life in the long term because it is the egg-cell, with its high-fidelity maternal DNA, that becomes the first cell of the offspring.
Males only contribute chromosomes.

When Adam named his wife Eve, “because she would become the mother of all the living” (Genesis 3:20), he spoke a biological truth that would only become known to science 6,000 years later. The cells of all our bodies are the lineal descendants of the cells of Eve’s body, but not of Adam’s.

Our current human population has therefore gone through about 23 × 250 = 5,750 germ-cell generations in the maternal line since creation. According to the findings of The 1000 Genomes Project we have each accumulated on average about 3.6 million SNPs in that time.

 Some of these would have been built into our original parents (Adam and Eve) to provide a pool of potentially useful variation for later generations to draw on.
A recent example is the discovery that a single nucleotide change in ethnic Tibetans (compared with Han Chinese) has allowed them to cope with the chronically low oxygen levels that occur on the high Tibetan plateau. In the recent study of protein coding genes mentioned above, the 86% of deleterious SNPs that accumulated in the last 200 generations would amount to approximately 3 million if applied to this average genome figure (3.6 million x 0.86 = 3 million). Several ancient human genomes have been sequenced and the one with the fewest SNPs (i.e. our closest estimate of the built-in variation) at about 450,000 belonged to a Paleo-Eskimo. It seems reasonable therefore to assume that something like 3 million of our SNPs have accumulated since creation. With our 3-billion-nucleotide genomes carrying 3 million SNPs then one measure of the current state of our genomic health is that we each carry approximately 1 error per thousand nucleotides." CMI
* "Paleo-Eskimo (also pre-Thule or pre-Inuit) were the peoples who inhabited the Arctic region
Some of Mother Eve's offspring, dispersing far from Babel
from Chukotka (e.g., Chertov Ovrag) in present-day Russia across North America to Greenland prior to the rise of the modern Inuit and/or Eskimo and related cultures. The first known Paleo-Eskimo cultures developed by 2500 BC, but were gradually displaced in most of the region, with the last one, the Dorset culture, disappearing around 1500 AD."

Endtimes & John the Baptists' Head

Now all these things happened unto them for examples:
and they are written for our admonition,
upon whom the ends of the world are come.
1 Corinthians 10:11



Lessons in Eschatology from the head of John the Baptist:

4 Key Players:
1) Herodias (The Harlot of Revelation)
2) Her Daughter (The Daughters of the Harlot)
3) Herod the Tetrarch (The Political Worldly Powers that implement the Mark of the Beast)
4) John the Baptist (God's Endtime Remnant with the last "Elijah Message" as John had for his day)
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming
of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children,
and the heart of the children to their fathers,
Malachi 4:5,6
Once again, "John" will be persecuted with the death penalty, as Herod the Tetrarch caves into the wishes of both Herodias & her daughter. ....and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. Revelation 13:15

The False Trinity of Revelation:
1) The Dragon/Herod the Tetrarch (Secular powers of this world)
2) The Beast/Herodias (Papal Rome)
3) The False Prophet/Daughter of Herodias (Apostate Churches)

Endtime Elijah Message of the next "John the Baptist"/Elijah-turning the hearts of the children back to their "FATHERS" (God, Christ & the Holy Spirit-the real Trinity/Godhead).---- And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth,....Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth,  Revelation 14:6,7



P.S.- The DANCE will not be worth it for the nations of the earth....

@ And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and
I will give it thee. Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

Mark 6:22,23

@ And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: ...... And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
Revelation 18:11,14


* Also, Herod the Tetrarch, in more detail, would represent the 2nd beast (U.S.), who gets the world to go along with the mark-of-the-beast (1st beast).  ...that Herod on his birthday made a
supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee; Mark 6:21---- because the "high captains" & "chief estates" would represent the other leaders. -- And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast,.. Revelation 13:11,12
