Don’t look for a “Welcome ‘Behind the Curtain’ Part 1” This is a continuation of my girlfriend’s Welcome “Behind the Curtain” from her blog Jersey Girl Gets Real. You should read it. It’s about Rosh Hashanah services. This is about services at my church. Just an average Sunday at Greater Works Ministries.
Growing up going to church meant it was Easter or Christmas. Mom was a Methodist and Dad was Catholic. Grandma Himelright would have loved for me to go to Saint Agnes every Sunday, but neither Mom or Dad were that focused. Dad worked 6 days a week and Sunday was his day off. But when we did go it was very simple, in and out all in about an hour.
This is my final bit on The Exodus Decoded on the History Channel. One of the frequent comments left on Chris Heard’s website was that because he was pointing out Simcha’s errors/oversights/manipulations he has no faith and he was making the blog and the program all about the science. Actally Chris was just dealing with Simcha’s stated beliefs/observations that the 10 plagues could be proven be science. Simcha took God out of the Biblical 10 plagues, not Chris.
Never mind that slowly we are able to define miracles in scientific terms. Does the knowledge of how a baby is formed make the actual delivery of a living breathing moving human (or animal) any less miraculous? I don’t think so. Here are some of the things that I am questioning about Simcha Jacobovici’s conclusions that Chris Heard didn’t touch on.
I just finished watching the Exodus Decoded, on the History Channel by James Cameron and Simcha Jacobovici. I didn’t realize it was originally aired in 2006. I thought it was a new program. But since switching to Verizon from DirecTV (I loved DirecTV and will most likely go back at some point) I’ve lost the ability to know what the original air dates are of programs. It’s one of my major complaints… but I digress. I was going to write up my thoughts on Exodus Decoded, but a professor Dr. Chris Heard did it for me. I haven’t finished reading his take … it’s long … but here’s the link. http://www.heardworld.com/higgaion/?page_id=119
