  • My Blog

    this is going to be my new blogsite for regular rants of mine.

    This hopefully will supplement my webpages.

    please, if you comment stay on subject. I am interested in feedback, especially real thoughtful feedback. if you don't agree with what i believe that's fine too, but argue about why you believe differently, if that's appropriate.

    and of course, this is for fun interest and for something to think about, not to offend anyone's ideas or beliefs.

Paul didn’t know Jesus

my conclusion: we don’t know. we didn’t have a clue before, now we have an educated clue.

CNN has a blog somewhere similar to my blog, “Time Travel”, and they say if certain things happen Hubble should be picking up images from billions of years ago, and if we look in the right spot we may be able to revisit the “Big Bang”. which really makes me wonder about our concept of “time” since that time for us has already happened, but here it is still happening there.

but anyway, our concept of time has changed numerous times. they used to measure time with the sundial and it was only accurate to within an area of time. sometimes the minute hand was considered accurate, but when the seasons change then the minutes’ positions change. more recently we’ve had clocks/watches that if you do not wind them at exactly the same time everyday they aren’t accurate. then later with the atomic clock and the internet, scientists have found that seconds were too large a measurement of time to be accurate. then with internet synchronization they found that they had to synchronize once a day. the time on the computer would be off because computers measure time in eighths or tenths, and time is in sixths. (60 seconds in a minute vs. 100) but a computer chip runs in tenths but then it has to communicate with the other chips in bits, so 8, 16, 32….

One of the guys who commented on my other blog was curious about how long we’ve been around.

before scientists were invulnerable, and what they said was golden. but then some other scientists cam along who said we don’t know that carbon dating or uranium isotope deterioration is correct. obviously, we have not been around for 12,000 years, so we could never even tell you that is what carbon would be like after that long. then they said we don’t know that carbon ages in that way each time. under different conditions it may decay at a different rate. also, the atmospheric conditions of the time in question may have been different than what we know today. A little more detail on both sides of this argument.

so, keeping that in mind, i read another story in an archeological periodical or magazine, that told about them digging into a mesa out west around Colorado. mesas are easier to measure because whatever the height of the mesa is how far you don’t have to dig down, but still get material from that rock period in history. 

archeological dig example so these archeologists went down into different layers of the rock and found animals and bones at different levels and tested all of them to see how old they were. on the outside layer of the Mesa, however, there could be remains from any period from where it was over washed with flood waters.

but, when the archeologists dug into the Mesa they found lifeforms in the upper layers that were older than animals in the lower layers. they would find a fossil and compare it to a list of fossils that had been previously dated to see how old it was.

here, the archeologists had a problem. the layers had to be laid on in the correct order because they layer like the layers of a tree trunk, one on top of the older one. so, how could the dating be wrong on the animals that they had found ?

They could not find an acceptable answer. Me ? i just don’t think we really know what we’re doing yet.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

but don’t you let me let this argument be one sided !

religion has it’s own inaccuracies to deal with. First, the Gospels’ stories do not match factually. i, and many other people believe these books were written as parables by the disciples. Nowhere in the Bible does it mention Jesus’ actual appearance, which just shows some things were intentionally left our of his description, and the details of the stories. Luke and Matthew write different accounts of the stories as do Mark and John. if these accounts were handed down directly from God, then these guys didn’t double-check what they wrote.

That aside, people have recently stated a new argument. I’m still reading Jesus Papers by Michael Baigent, in which some archeologists and theologians have been working together for 50 years and have read ancient writings from the Bible and historical texts. even though Paul had never met Jesus, he talks of him as if he has. in those same words that Paul talks of Jesus, Matthew, Luke, and others talk of him. when most of the writers in the Bible talk of Jesus they speak of him in a 3rd person kind of way, more like the person who fulfilled the prophecies would be the Messiah. the Gospels write of Jesus as the one who fulfilled those prophecies, therefore, he was the Messiah.

if you look at Jesus this way, and if i have made any sense the way i have written it, you may be able to see how the Bible of parables, was written about the story of the Messiah, and that Messiah would be Jesus and the son of David and Abraham. but the Jesus that lived and the Jesus written about may not have been the same. the Jesus in the Bible was a prophesy, Jesus the man came later.

While i believe in God, and i believe the Bible is sacred, what else we know about time, our history and where we’re from, leaves a lot of questions.
