Comment on Louie Bishop Testifies, Again, about His Experience at La Sierra University by AzGrandpa.

> The big bang today relies on a growing number of hypothetical entities, things that we have never observed– inflation, dark matter and dark energy are the most prominent examples. Without them, there would be a fatal contradiction between the observations made by astronomers and the predictions of the big bang theory. >

> Today, virtually all financial and experimental resources in cosmology are devoted to big bang studies. Funding comes from only a few sources, and all the peer-review committees that control them are dominated by supporters of the big bang. As a result, the dominance of the big bang within the field has become self-sustaining, irrespective of the scientific validity of the theory.
> Giving support only to projects within the big bang framework undermines a fundamental element of the scientific method — the constant testing of theory against observation. Such a restriction makes unbiased discussion and research impossible. >

The End of “Junk DNA”?

Hebrews 9:3-5

Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

3 Behind the second parokhet was a tent called the Holiest Place, 4 which had the golden altar for burning incense and the Ark of the Covenant, entirely covered with gold. In the Ark were the gold jar containing the man, Aharon’s rod that sprouted and the stone Tablets of the Covenant; 5 and above it were the k’ruvim representing the Sh’khinah, casting their shadow on the lid of the Ark — but now is not the time to discuss these things in detail.

It is obvious there are two vails.

The Greek word for “sanctuary” in this chapter is ta hagia which means “the— plural.” hagia means “holies,” or “holy places.” Paul is speaking of the sanctuary of two holy places, or rooms. Ta hagia is used only nine times in the N.T., and all are in the book of Hebrews (8:2; 9:1,2,8,12,24,25; 10:19; 13:11). Paul defines terms in 9:1-3, where he tells us about the entire sanctuary, then the first apartment, and then the second apartment. He gives us two meanings of ta hagia: 9:1 (“sanctuary”)—the entire sanctuary of two apartments, and 9:2 (“sanctuary”)—the first apartment. Ta hagia means the entire sanctuary, but in 9:2 he applied it only to the first apartment. Can ta hagia also mean “second apartment?” No, it cannot, for in 9:3, Paul specifically tells us the word he has in mind when he speaks of the most holy place,—and he uses a different Greek word: hagia hagion (“holy of holies”—literally). The King James Version correctly translates ta hagia in 9:24 (“holy places”), and incorrectly translates it in 9:8 (“holiest of all”), and 10:19 (“the holiest”). In 9:12 and 9:25 it gives “holy place.” Ta hagia can only mean “first apartment” or “two-apartmented sanctuary,” and nothing else. On the basis of the correct meaning of ta hagia, Jesus did not enter once and for all into the most holy place in 31 A.D. He entered the sanctuary and first apartment then.
