Moses knew physical beings are made of elements like the dust of the ground.

Now days we have another choice besides traditional burial and cremation. Because we contain carbon we can also be made into a diamond. In the future when a young man decides to propose, it’s possible he might say, “This diamond is not my grandmother’s, this diamond is my– grandmother.” 😉

It wasn’t until the early 18th century AD we began to have an understanding of chemistry and elements. That is a very long time after Genesis was written in the 13th century BC.

According to Biblical scholars, in the 13th century BC, Moses’s Genesis was the first book ever recorded.

Whenever it was written, Genesis is a great example of farsighted symbolism. Many scientific theories are supported by this prophetic book.

Genesis 2:7, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground [elements?] and breathed into his nostrils [combined?] the breath of life [spirit?]; and man became a living soul.”

Moses appeared to know that dust of the ground is made of elements, elements that also make up the human body, such as oxygen, calcium, sulfur, and magnesium.

What better way for Moses to explain to a primitive people than to symbolically explain earthly physical mass as the dust of the ground.

Electromagnetism and the Bible’s rainbow promise connected?

Bill Bryson, author of A Short History of Everything, told the Guardian in March 2005, “I’m not a spiritual person.” He did however allow that, “…conventional science and a belief in god are absolutely not incompatible.”

“Do you realize all the food on our table tonight came from our farm?” Marty’s dad seemed proud of the fact.

Marty thought how electromagnetism had a major role in determining the internal properties of the delicious food and most internal properties of objects encountered in daily life. Atoms are building blocks of molecules which are the building blocks of the physical mass of our universe. Electromagnetism is the force that binds negatively charged electrons to positively charged atomic nuclei, ensuring that stable atoms can be formed which includes the chemistry of life.

“I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.” Genesis 9:13

Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet

“And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given him that sat thereon…” Revelation 6:3

Of the four horses John described, this is the only symbolic horse [force of nature?] that John referred to as a color from the seven colors of the rainbow. Electromagnetism also has seven spectrums in ranges of frequencies and wavelengths.

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light [controller of electromagnetism?] of the world;” John 8:12 “And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.” John 4:36

Maxwell described light as a propagating wave of electric and magnetic fields. Jesus seems to symbolically be the rider [power and authority over?] of the red horse [one of four forces of nature?] in control of electromagnetic power [light & life?] of the universe.

Marty was beginning to realize that modern scientific theory did agree with ancient scripture. Maybe her mother was right.

  • How did Abraham know so much about space-time so long before Einstein?
  • How did prophets in the Bible know about cosmic inflation?
  • What caused C.S. Lewis to reason that man’s longing for order was because man must have experienced life without entropy?
  • Was Pierre-Simon Laplace correct when he determined that there could be someone who knows the precise location and momentum of every atom in the universe and could calculate past and future values for any given time?
  • What if scripture messages about the cosmos show early understandings that are in agreement with or even beyond what we understand today?
