Workout Equipment for Beginners

If you are like most people, you have made some New Year’s resolutions for 2019. One of the things that tops the list of so many people is a resolution to in one way or another to improve your health. That is always a good thought. Unfortunately, so many of us fail to carry it through the whole year and on into everyday life.

Sometimes we spend large sums of money and in the end have little to show for it. If we followed through and accomplished the goals we set that would be good. But if we do not follow through, we find ourselves with equipment and toys and memberships which will be wasted and afford us no good.

What I propose to do here is to present you with some equipment which you can use to help to achieve some of your fitness and health goals without maxing out your credit cards. So, if you fail to achieve your goal you at least will not have to get a second mortgage on the house.

Workout Equipment for Beginners

The format here is to present you with choices of different types of workout equipment that you can fit to your particular situation or goals. None of the articles presented will cost over $200 and most quite a bit less. We will present the product and explain how it can be used to help you meet your health goals. You can decide which will be best suited to your situation and purpose.

All the equipment that I shall present can be purchased on Amazon and I will give you a direct link to the product from this website so as to make it easy for you to access.

XTERRA Fitness FB150 Folding Exercise Bike

The XTERRA Fitness FB150 folding exercise bike is the cost per results that one can get in achieving good health in the coming year. It has a solid X frame and only takes up 18″x18″ of space when folded and stored. It has a large seat and padded handle bars. It has a digital readout on a 2″x1″ LCD screen which displays speed, distance, time, calories and pulse. It has 8 levels of resistance controlled by a large Dial tension knob. It can be easily rolled and store out of the way and out of site.

Bicycling is a great way to burn those calories without jolting the body as is done in jogging or running. It makes it convenient to be able to roll it out and ride for 20 or 30 minutes and then store it out of the way. If done in the morning it will raise your metabolism so that you will be burning more calories throughout the day than if you had not exercised.

Earth’s Magnetic Field-Does It Disprove Evolution

Just recently several studies have been released that show that the Earth’s magnetic field, the Van Allen Belt, is decreasing and has been so for longer than studies have been carried on. Since the 1870’s there have been regular measurements of the strength of the magnetic field.

What do the studies show?

The findings show a consistent and continual decrease in the strength of the magnetic field. There are some bad ramifications for the continuation of life on Earth if that decay continues. The magnetic belt is the main shield of ultraviolet rays coming from the sun to the Earth. The magnetic field acts as a deflector of most of the ultraviolet rays that would hit the Earth if the field were not there.

If the magnetic shield were not there it would take only one major solar flare eruption that reached the Earth to wipe out all life on the Earth.

As we study the area of space travel we must consider allowing for protection of the ships and colonies which may be established on other planets or moons of planets. So far, Earth is the only planet which has a magnetic shield sufficient to protect living things from the deadly rays produced by the sun.

How this affects the theory of evolution

You have probably been taught from your childhood up that the Earth, the solar system and the galaxies are billions of years old. Secular humanist scientists say that life arose on Earth around 4 billion years ago. We hear the word billion and even trillion so much these days that we are seldom phased by it. Let’s build a trillion.

  • Let’s start with 10
  • 10 x 100= 1000
  • 1000 x 1000= 1,000,000(one million)
  • 1000 x 1,000,000 = 1,000,000,000(one billion)
  • 14 x 1,000,000,000 = 14 billion, which secular scientists say the age of the universe is.

Considering that the normal average age of a human being in the 21st century is around 70 years, there is really no way that we can comprehend such a time span. Do you think that this may be one reason that secular scientists want to use such incomprehensible numbers?  If you can not conceive it, just trust the scientist. Surely, he will tell the truth.

By leading us into the land of non-comprehension the scientist can now lead us wherever he may wish. This path is usually down the path of The Big Bang and life evolving from non-living matter. It is on this path that he will spin such wonderful “fairy tales” of how matter came into existence and how magically the elements by blind chance combined at just the right ratios at just the right time at just the right conditions to bring about a living cell. The cell was so robust that it was able to survive a totally hostile environment to a point that it was able to reproduce itself. It continued the process and grew more complex with each following generation.

What a compelling story!

Earth life

The fairy tale of life on Earth relies very much on the electro magnetic field that shields the Earth. That is one of the conditions that had to be just right. Not enough shield and the ultraviolet rays end life before it begins. Too much shield and not enough of the energy producing rays get through to provide energy for the food for the cell. Though this is just one of about twenty things that must be set to within a narrow percentage, it is totally necessary.

What has been discovered over the past 150 years is that the magnetic shield is decreasing. The secular millions and billions of years scientists are saying that the magnetic field is in the process of reversing its polarity. They blithely step over the fact that if anything like that ever happened that every living thing would be killed. Why?  Because there would be absolutely no protection from the destructive ultraviolet waves emitted by the sun. Evolution would have to start all over again. Believe it or not, some, so-called scientists actually believe that this has happened before. By so believing they complicate the fairy tale of evolution even more.

Another perspective

If we were to use the evolutionist’s tool of uniformitarianism and walk the decrease in magnetic strength backward, we would find that in just a matter of 20,000 years its strength would be such that atoms could not be combined to form elements and there would be no possible way for life to even come about. So, if that is true, and it is more logical than the fairy tales of the secular scientist, then the Earth probably is no more than 6,000 to 8,000 years old.

It seems that real science has once again pulled the mask off of the pseudo-scientists of evolution and the big bang.

What does science tell us?

Science does not itself tell us anything. Science is a concept built by human beings who use it to support the living things of the Earth. If science does not tell us anything, then what is its purpose? Science actually means knowledge, or the search for knowledge. So, why do we search for knowledge?

We search for knowledge because we are created to seek for it. The evolutionist does not believe that this universe and all that is in it was created. He believes it is all one big accident and everything in it has come about by chance. As one writer puts it, “Stuff happens”. Why does he believe this? He believes it because he is in rebellion against the Creator. How do we know this? There is a history book called The Bible, which has recorded the events that put all mankind and all creation toward rebellion and destruction. Ever since that event, the nature of all humans is to rebel against The Creator. So, many secular scientists refuse to acknowledge The Creator and therefore must fabricate some other means by which we see the universe we inhabit. Because they are in rebellion they will not seek the true knowledge and therefore they must make up their fairy tales.

Those who by grace and faith receive the truth of the Creator understand that in the beginning, in a perfect world, the Creator said, “Be fruitful and multiply, fill the Earth and subdue it; have dominion over it.” The King James rendering does not come across today as it did when translated, but God commanded man to learn of this beautiful and wondrous creation and to make it even more so.

True scientists will learn through the eyes of the Creator. That is why we want to learn.

Earth’s magnetic field

Though it is only one aspect of life on Earth, it is necessary. Follow after your Creator and learn about it and all life.

God bless you on your wonderful adventure.

What Is Wrong With Not Knowing-Science Today

I was watching a documentary on TV just lately and was a little taken back when I heard one of the “scientists” use a phrase which I had never heard equated with the study of science. He was a professor of anthropology and paleontology and was involved in the unveiling of a “new” lineage in the evolution of human being, that is homo sapiens. The statement with like this: “There is nothing wrong with not knowing in science.”

Science

The very definition of science is “knowledge”. How can a person who is supposedly a PhD in any field of science turn the definition on its head. My question to him, or her, would be, that if the definition of science is knowledge, how can you say that lack of knowledge is not a shortcoming? Yes, I can agree that the search for knowledge implies that there is more knowledge to be gained, but that does not justify that lack of knowledge is good. Is not knowing something a scientific concept?

The search for knowledge is always good. However, we must be aware that everyone who is seeking knowledge must make some “a priori” assumptions. Those assumed foundations, or axioms, will determine to a great degree how one will interpret the facts that we find.

Why not knowing was alright with the paleontologist

The reason for this “scientist’s” statement was that the fossil and bones that they found had upset 150 years of what paleontologists and anthropologists had believed about the evolution of homo sapiens. Rather than admitting that they had been wrong for 150 years and had presented as truth in many thousands of school and college text books, they glossed their big lie over by saying that there is nothing wrong with not knowing.

Would it not have been truthful and more scientific in the first place to admit that they really did not know and then present several possibilities that might fit the findings? That would have been the scientific thing to do and then allow studious and knowledgeable people to pursue avenues of further study.

But, no, they plunged headlong into making up stories about fossils that they said were 2 million years old. They literally made up stories of what they imagined happened and presented it as if it were true. The fact was that the same scenario could have come about by any number of ways. But, when it is your story, you can make up anything you wish. A real scientist would present as many feasible possibilities and then apply Ocham’s Razor.(The least complicated explanation is usually the correct one).

 

How long are they right

The content of the documentary was collected several years ago. In the time since the discoveries were made and documented, the findings and conclusions that were drawn have been shown to be incorrect or false. So, once again we are having to adjust what the text books are saying. This is becoming a common occurrence in every field of science that relates to evolution.

Scientifically it is understood that DNA cannot last more than a few thousand years. This has been proven by many observable scientific empirical experiments. However, when DNA was discovered in supposedly 70 to 100 million year old pliable flesh, the evolutionists changed the fact that it could not last except for a few thousand years to more than a hundred million years. Did they do it through experimental and logical science? No, they did not. If they were to admit that DNA could not remain intact but for a few thousand years, they would necessarily have to abandon the whole theory of evolution.

Rather than letting the facts dictate the conclusion, they chose to let their prior assumption redefine the science.

Not knowing

So the story continues. What do they not know. They say they know that chimpanzees and homo sapiens came from a common ancestor. But they do not know who or what the common ancestor was but that that ancestor came from apes.

Now, I ask, how can you know for sure that an unknown species came from and ape and that that unknown species somehow evolved several more times until there were two more identifiable species of homo sapiens and chimpanzees? How can you know anything about them if you do not know who they are along the process? That, then becomes a “fairy tale” to rival Peter Pan and The Lion King. These scientists could be writers for Walt Disney.

What are we being taught?

It is a sad thing to admit, but this is so common in so many sciences today. There are more and more so-called sciences such as sociology and psychology which are being shown to be nothing akin to true science. Many of these sciences are merely inventions to prop up a political agenda which by itself would have been seen as the foolish thing it is. But by adding an air of scientific viability to it it takes on respectability.

It is important today that when you read about science and scientific findings that you be aware of the source of its promotion. A prime example is the so-called “climate change” being pushed by politicians the world over. What is their goal. It surely is not for the good of those they say they are serving. Some leaders and promoters of climate change advocate the annihilation of up to 90% of human population. You will not hear them say it out loud, but that is a part of their agenda.

Now, evolution’s goal is a little different. Its goal is to separate human beings from their Creator. Evolutionists want you to think that you are nothing more that “goo”. They are in league with the great deceiver who was the first to rebel against the Creator. He has blinded the eyes of those who do not wish to acknowledge the Creator so that he can lead them to rebel against Him so that they will spend eternity in hell apart from their Creator.

Final analysis

You can choose to believe “scientists” who when confronted with their lies choose to glory in what they do not know and thereby continue to present their lies and lead people astray from the truths of science and from the truths of life.

Or you can choose to seek the truth with an open and curious logical mind. Then when it is revealed, you can believe it and build upon the truth. The beginning of truth for all creation is found in the Bible. If you begin with the truth of the Bible and build upon that foundation you will discover truths that will not have to be adjusted or changed with every new discovery that is made.

May you use your God given logic and understanding as you seek the truth.

How to Succeed at Affiliate Marketing

You are reading this because you are truly interested in making money on the internet. You may have spent enough time searching by now to know that affiliate marketing is one of the most lucrative ways of making money online.

How to do business online

You must first have a website to establish your presence on the internet. The website may take one of several forms. It may be a simple store front type situation where you present products and sell them for a given price. Another might be a drop shipping business in which you have an account with a producer of certain products in which you advertise and sell their products without actually maintaining an inventory of their products. You simply advertise and sell their product for a marked up price and then from payment received you buy it from the company and they ship the product to your customer. The difference between what you are paid and what you pay for the product is your profit.

Sometimes you are merely selling a service which you provide.

The most utilized and without a doubt the most successful is online affiliate marketing.

What is affiliate marketing

To be an affiliate marketer you must “affiliate” yourself with a product or company that you would like to promote. To “affiliate” with a company means that you agree to certain terms about how to advertise and promote their products and in return they will compensate you for the buying customers that you send their way. The way they compensate you is by giving you an agreed upon percentage of the sale price. Depending on the product that percentage may range from 3% to 70%.

How will you promote the product

Most affiliate marketers will set up a website that is called a blog. The best I can determine about the derivation of this term is that it stands for “weblog”. This website will usually focus on a subject that is very defined. For instance: it may be about cars; but better yet, red cars; still more defined, small red cars; still more, small red cars for sale. I think you get the idea.

But, just as important, and maybe more so, it should be something that the blogger is passionate about. If you own a 1954 red Volkswagen Beetle and want to know if there are other people interested in the same, you can blog about that. As you develop your blog you might ally yourself with a parts’ dealer who can supply parts’ for cars. By affiliating yourself with the parts’ dealer you can direct customers to him by placing advertisements, which he provides, on your website. When people read your blog and click on the advertisement they will be taken to the parts’ dealers site. If they make a purchase, the parts’ dealer will pay you a percentage of that sale as a commission.

This same approach can be used in an almost infinite number of cases. If you can find a product, you can probably affiliate with that company and become an affiliate marketer for them.

So far, so good

So far it does not sound that complicated. As you continue to search about affiliate marketing you will find that there are numerous opportunities out there to start building an affiliate marketing site. This is the point where you must begin to use wisdom.

There are probably hundreds of promotions that will promise to set you up an affiliate site that will begin to bring in a passive income. That term, “passive income”, means you do not have to do anything to bring it in. Let me be straight forward, that is a lie. What they will do is to set you up a website and install links to products, usually to Amazon. It is a real site and is connected to real products at Amazon. But, what they won’t tell you is how you are going to get people to your site so that they can click through to Amazon and buy the products.

They will not tell you, either, how to add products or take out products from your site. They do not tell you how to operate the dashboard for your website to add plugins or links to other sites of interest. You are usually tied to Amazon and no other business opportunities. So you are very limited and your hands or figuratively tied as far as developing your website any further.

Most, and by that I mean 95%, of these promotions and programs are what I have just described. They will take your money and communicate with you for a couple of months and then the phone or email will go silent. It is best that if you buy into any program like this that you pay with a credit card or PayPal. If after a couple of months you see some of the above symptoms develop you can dispute the payment and get your money back. One note of caution: Do not sign any legal type documents online. If the company or product is not confident enough that they can trust that you will like their product, then you probably will not. DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING THAT APPEARS TO BE A LEGAL DOCUMENT.

What to look for in an affiliate marketing program

As you search for the right program for yourself, there are a few things which you should expect in the program if you are to succeed.

  • They should not want a lot of money upfront.
  • They should not promise that you will make big money fast.
  • They should not constantly promote additional products for a price to guarantee your success.
  • They should offer a free trial. Usually 30 or 60 day trial. Usually this is with registration of a credit card. At the end of the trial period the card will be automatically charged unless you rescind the card.
  • They should have a comprehensive library of training tools to cover every area of affiliate marketing
  • They should have programs that teach you how to build your website and how to maintain it and grow your followers.
  • They should have a support system that can be prompt and knowledgeable and available 24 hours a day.
  • The price should be reasonable and you should know what it is going to cost upfront.

There could be other things that could be included in the list, but if you can check these off you will more than likely be standing on safe ground.

My Recommendation

My recommendation comes from a background of having experienced some of the unscrupulous affiliate marketing scams that are out there. Because of those experiences, I do now want anybody else to go through them. It would cost you money and heartaches that you should not have to go through.

Because I wanted to succeed I continued searching until I found a program that meets all the needs of someone who is willing to work at building an online affiliate marketing site. It provides all the tools and lessons and support that even the novice will need to begin and build an online marketing business. Though I am emphasizing affiliate marketing, it will work for any approach for building an online business or service or ministry.

It is upfront with its costs ($49 a month, $499 a year). If you are like I was, you might think that that is a lot of money. But consider this. Some programs want $4000 to $5000 up front and the more as you progress through the program. With this program you know from the beginning what you will be paying and can adjust your budget accordingly. For that price you will get all the tools necessary for building your website and the knowledge and training to maintain it and grow it to whatever size you choose.

One of the best things about this program is that you can try it for FREE! Totally FREE! No credit card to register. With the FREE membership you will have access to 10 of the hundreds of training courses that are in the program and available to all the PREMIUM members. With the FREE membership you will receive 2 free websites hosted by their hosting service.

With this program as a PREMIUM member you will have access to all the tools and knowledge contained in the program. There is not a higher level.

The name of this program is Wealthy Affiliates. It has been established for going on 14 years and is still growing in membership. Let me encourage you to try the FREE membership. That is how I started and I have not looked back since. You will grow in knowledge and by patience and persistence you will succeed as an affiliate marketer.

Is Neurogym a Scam – A Review

One of the latest motivational attraction is one that is called Neurogym. As you might surmise from the name, it has to do with the brain. But not just the brain, but the thoughts and attitudes that go along with the brain and all that is contained within the neuropaths of the brain. The founder and principal promoter of Neurogym is a man named John Assaraf.

John Assaraf

John Assaraf is an attractive and very intelligent person. From his biography we learn that he did not have an idealic childhood but was very often the brunt of bullies. Because of this and other bad circumstances in his life he was more of a troublemaker as a teenager than an inspiration. According to him, at the age of nineteen he made a decision to turn his life around and so became a success. He built several multi million dollar companies and was a very successful business man.

In part of his autobiography he tells how he made a motivational picture board and on that board one of the pictures of the ideal house that he wanted to live in. It was only a matter of four years before he had achieved that dream. This and other achievements brought him to the idea of sharing how he was able to do this with other people. Out of this came Neurogym.

Neurogym is not just a method to make money but it is used to lose weight, improve relationships, improve physical and mental health and gain confidence and raise self-esteem. All in all it sounds like a fairly good thing.

What is the cost?

Typically, such programs as Neurogym will not give a price of the whole program. I will admit that it took me quite a while to find what the price of the program, or programs, were. I did not get it from the Neurogym web pages, though. I got it from an article written by one of the users of the program. Apparently, he had had good success and was promoting the program on his own website.

There are seven phases to the program. They are as follows with their cost:

  1. Money- The Art and Science of Financial Success ($2500)
  2. The Success Manifestors Genius Program ($497)
  3. In Depth Personality, Strengths and Success Profile Assessment ($500)
  4. Having It All ($197)
  5. Values Based Living ($197)
  6. How to Get More Done in Less Time ($197)
  7. The Four Pillars of Financial and Wealth Success ($1497)

If you go to the myneurogym.com site you will see offers, which they claim are worth over $16,000 which they will sell to you for only $995. If you can not shell out $995 right now, you can make four easy payments of $395.

On their page you will also find testimonies of several people who have used the program and achieved success. All this sounds good and it may be. But allow me a little skepticism.

What the employers of Neurogym have to say

If you were to go to glassdoor.com and read some testimonies of people who have worked for Neurogym, you may get another picture than the one presented by the company. Here are just a few of the comments left by people who said they liked the motivation of the company, but there were many things lacking.

  • The company is not transparent with a prospective new hire about the company’s condition leading them to believe the opportunity is much better than it really is.
    By the time you figure out what’s really going on any other opportunities you might be considering will be gone.
    The public perception is that everything is perfect and the company exist to change the world. Everything is far from perfect.
  • Boss is micro-manager from hell. Turnover understandably high. Feast or famine – lots of feel good kumbaya moments (are we having fun?) and many more “oh crap” moments due to poor organization and wacky direction. Run away.
  • The public perception is that everything is perfect and the company exist to change the world. Everything is far from perfect. …
  • Products are predatory
    Top leader is all about the money
  • High stress environment marked by a high degree of incompetence
    Company doesn’t pay their vendors or partners and contrary to what they want the public to think they are on the verge of failure
    Most employees have been owed bonuses for months that the company can’t afford to pay
  • NeuroGym is a company that makes money by selling very expensive, false-hope to desperate or naive people around the world. Blatantly unethical business practices are conveniently ignored by most of the team, including the leadership.
    Working here will take a toll on your conscience. I don’t expect this company to still be operating in 2020.
  • Owner is a fraud and preys on weak and vulnerable clientele by selling false hopes and lies. You feel grimy for taking their money.

Of the reviews at GlassDoor, 3 were positive(but one of those pointed out some weaknesses) and 7 were negative.

My conclusion about Neurogym

I was very impressed by the first things I read about Neurogym and its goal of helping people improve their own esteem and succeed in this world. But as I dug more and more into the mechanics of the program it became more and more evident that there were some areas that would need to be addressed. I am sure that there are some who have actually followed the program and have succeeded. But I would wager that those people could take almost any type of program that is halfway feasible and succeed.

Neurogym is like so many other programs of this type which present the rosy picture of success of those who have used the program and have done well with it. But, how many more have done the program and the only result was that they ended up thousands of dollars in debt. The $5000 to $6000 price tag we noted above is probably not the final cost to someone who buys into the program. They “Wow” you with the offer that saves you over $16,000. The truth is, the product is not worth the $995 dollars they are baiting you with. Once in the door, you will find that it is going to take more and more money to achieve the success they envision for you.

As I said, I am sure that there are some who have used this program and succeeded. But because the program is basically a way for the owners and promoters to make lots of money at the unknowing man’s expense, it is a scam.

I could not in good conscience recommend it to anybody.

What do I recommend?

If you do wish to work and build a business online that can make you money and help you achieve some of your goals, then let me recommend the program that I have found. Remember the $6000 I noted above that it would cost you to join the Neurogym program, well the program I recommend will charge you a monthly fee of only $49. Of course, you could reduce that cost by buying the service yearly(under $500). You will be buying 12 years of building success with the $6000 you would spend in a short period with Neurogym.

You can, if you so desire, and many do, begin with the FREE membership. Yes, it is totally free. What you will receive in this FREE membership is 10 lessons on how to build a website by which to promote your business. To learn this, you will be given 2 free websites and their hosting by this program. You will learn how to build your website and begin promoting your business. If after exercising the FREE membership program feel that you could continue to learn and grow in the online business world, then you can move up to the Premium membership for $49 a month.

The program I recommend is Wealthy Affiliates. It is a program that has gone on for almost 14 years and is still helping people succeed in building online businesses. There are no promises that you will get-rich-quick, but if you are consistent and persistent and patient, you will succeed in building an online business. The level to which it will grow will depend totally on you. The tools, lessons and support are too numerous to list. The knowledge base is beyond imagination. You will be part of a community of growing entrepreneurs who will encourage you and help you at every turn.

Why Do People Believe Evolution-Can Christians Believe Evolution

Even though most Americans do not believe in evolution the scientific establishment is dumbfounded as to why people do not believe in evolution. It is a wonder that there are so many who do not believe the Darwinian evolutionary scheme that they have been fed from before beginning their public school careers.

I would like to approach it from the other direction.

Why do people believe evolution?

I believe the question stated above is far more a logical approach to the question of evolution. If you were to take a survey of American citizens who have grown up in the public school system a good many of them would say that they believe in evolution. Even many church going people believe in the concept of evolution. Why is that so? If you were to survey the scientific text books used to teach in our public schools you will find that there is only one paradigm for the presence of life on earth. And that is evolution, and all the trappings that go with it.

If you had grown up in a remote location where there was no interaction with any other society or peoples and you were taught that your village or town was all that there was and that there was no way to leave it or venture out from it. You were never allowed to read anything that suggested that there might be other locations and peoples apart from your location and society. If that is all that you were taught from birth until you were 20 years old, what is the likelihood that that is what you would teach your children?

That is what has happened in the public school systems of the United States. One would think that 90% of US citizens would believe in evolution. Most of our college graduates do believe in evolution, though they are so lacking communicative skills that they can not tell you why. Quite often their reason is that evolution was all that they were taught. It is as if they grew up in a remote location and were never taught anything else.

Why do you believe evolution(if you do)?

I must admit that even when I was growing up that evolution was the paradigm that was taught. Though it was not as overt then as it is now. Professors and teachers speak of evolution as if it is a scientific law. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you were to ask them why, there answer would probably be something like, “My biology professor said so,” or “We see it all around us”” or “evolution is change and we se e change in all life.” All of these, and many more, are good non-scientific answers.

If you were to ask your college professor to give you three scientifically sound examples of Darwinian evolution, how many do you think he or she might present. The keywords are “scientifically” and “Darwinian”. You see, Darwinian evolution says that a life form must increase in complexity if it is to evolve. Science says that you must produce empirical evidence to prove a hypothesis. That has never been done in the field of evolution.

So, if you believe in evolution it is not because you have been convinced by the evidence, because there is no evidence. If you believe in evolution it is simply because you have been brainwashed and have never even considered an alternative. Public schools and colleges and universities have programmed their students to accept what ever they are taught is to be believed and not questioned. A true education system would teach its students to have inquiring and questioning minds. They would want the things they are taught to be logical and reasonable and applicable in their lives and society.

Dare to question evolution. Look at alternatives and see if they are logical and are grounded on scientific laws and principals.

Can Christians believe evolution?

This is almost an oxymoron. There are some people who say they are Christians and that they believe in evolution. Let me tell you why I do not believe that a Christian can believe in evolution(Darwinian evolution).

For the Christian, the foundation of his or her faith is the Word of God, The Bible. The only way to find faith by which one can receive salvation and become a “Christian” is to believe the Word of God. We know from the Bible that “By grace we are saved through faith.” We also know that the “faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God”. If someone decides that they will pick and choose which words to believe and which are not to be believed, then they have decided right there that word is not the Word of God. If you will take the time to read and learn about the Bible you will know that the first temptation to the first man and woman was that what God said was not really the whole truth.

When you decide that God did not mean what He said or what He had written in relation to how He created all things, then you have fallen for the original sin. Now, we can repent of sin, turn from it and walk in fellowship and believing our Creator. But do not think that you can maintain fellowship with your Creator after calling Him a liar. Look what happened to Adam and Eve and all of their descendants, whose we are.

If you want to believe in evolution, you are free to do so. But, do not call yourself a believer in God and His only-begotten Son, Jesus.

The answer, “No, you can not be a Christian and believe in evolution.

How do we know evolution is not scientific

We can know with confidence that evolution is not scientific. “How?”, you ask. First of all, to believe in evolution you must cast aside several scientific laws and findings which have been established and stood the test of time.

Evolution stands against the laws of thermodynamics. If we are to believe evolution we must cast these laws aside.

Evolution stands against the law of bio-genesis. Life only comes from life. That has been established since Pasteur.

Evolution stands against the law of cause and effect. An effect can not be greater than its cause. In fact, the cause is ALWAYS greater than the effect.

Evolution stands against the laws of probability.

Evolution stands against every finding with regard to DNA research. There is never an increase in information in DNA from one generation to the next, no matter how many mutations there are.

Conclusion

There is no scientific evidence for evolution. We have sought to present a few reasons why people might believe in evolution. None of them pass the test of logic or reason. If you believe in evolution you have every right to believe it. But, do not call yourself an intellectual person. Intelligence will cause you to pursue logic and truth rather than blindly following what someone force feeds you.

Your Creator instilled in you a spirit that seeks out truth. Truth is always logical and reasonable. But if you have been blinded by your education and other people’s belief, you may be truly blind to what is true.

I pray that you will use your God given mind and intellect to seek your Creator and the wonderful things He has in store for you.

 

 

 

 

Evolution Time Is Up-Evolution Science Fiction vs Science Fact

It is time for us to once again address an ever-recurring plague known as evolution science. One would think that with the amount of scientific knowledge that has been accumulated that true science fiction would be acknowledged as such. But such a subject as evolution really would not fall into the area of “science” fiction but would better be described as “science fantasy”. To be factual, “Evolution, your time is up. From now on you are science fantasy not science fact.”

Why fantasy

“Why the term fantasy?”, you ask. Let us approach it from this angle. When you watch the little cartoons that your children watch on Saturday mornings, you see all kinds of things that you know are just fantasy creations of the producers of the cartoons. Those producers are not constrained by scientific facts as to what they can bring to life. After all, it is just a “fairy tale” made up to entertain little children. We hope that as our children grow up they will understand the difference between what is “real” and what is fantasy. Hopefully, they will understand what is fact and what is not fact.

Evolution is not even science

Evolution is not true science by any stretch of the imagination. The term was stolen from a good scientific word, “adaptation”. To adapt means to make adjustments to fit into one’s environment. What evolutionists fail to recognize, or even acknowledge, was that the ability and information needed to adapt (not evolve) to the circumstance had to of necessity already be contained within the creature or living cell. But if they were to acknowledge such a fact, they would undermine their own objective.

True science is based on facts. It is based on facts which can be observed through experiments which can be repeated time and time again which yield the same results. If the experiment does not yield the expected results then the premises is falsified. It is then considered not scientific.

Evolution has been falsified so many times that it is beyond reason to even consider it scientific. Not even science fiction.

Why does evolution persist

If evolution is not science, why does it continued to be treated as such? Consider this. When a thing or subject is accepted without proofs from a natural approach it is usually considered a religion. Religions are usually based on “faith”. That faith is quite often not founded on physical repeatable facts. It is a belief held by the person or groups because it can not be proved by the scientific method.

Evolution is founded on the principle of atheism. Atheism says that there is not “God”. Can they prove that? Is there some scientific experiment that can consistently prove that there is no “God”? Of course, you know the answer. There is no experiment that can prove the existence of a “God”.

Instead of evolutionists admitting their professed “beliefs”, and in so doing render them outside the area of facts and truths, they claim to be scientists and will allow “no divine foot in the door” in addressing science. In so doing they have broken one of the most important things about science in that to find truth in any matter you must look at all the facts, or in this case, none facts, or made up facts. So, by differentiating themselves from religion they try to present themselves as objective and scientific. The truth is that they are more religious than the so-called religious.

Because evolutionists insist that they are not religious but are scientific, they persist in the scientific field.

Time is up

But, time is up for the evolutionist. In the past century one scientific discovery after another has falsified evolutionary tales. Science says that a premise which can not be falsified, that is if there is not some scenario which it is supposed to bring about which in certain situations it does not bring about, then it is proven wrong and is falsified.

There are many scientific hypotheses which have been put to the test many times and have stood the test and have come to the status of being scientific laws. Evolution is not one of those.

Evolution states that living things evolve and grow more complex, thereby increasing the information in the DNA of any given species. But when confronted with cave fish which have “evolved” and no longer have functioning eyes (a loss of information in the DNA of the cave fish), they call this evolution. Is the increase in information in the DNA evolution or is the decrease in information in the DNA evolution. It can not be both or the premises (evolution) is falsified.

The evolutionist will not point out this inconsistency. However, it is rampant throughout the “science fiction” of evolution.

When DNA was discovered it was heralded by evolutionists to be the final nail in the coffin of creationism. It would prove evolution beyond a shadow of doubt. In the early studies of DNA it seemed that might be the case. It appeared at first that only about 2% of the DNA was actually functional and useful in the function of the living entity studied. Their conclusion was that the remainder of the DNA was junk and leftovers from evolutionary progression. To their disdain the evolutionists have been proven wrong again (their hypothesis was falsified). Everyday new studies are showing that more and more of the DNA is functional and necessary in the life of the entity involved.

As mentioned above, evolutionists believe that the information in DNA could be increased by mutations in the DNA and thereby create new information. Over millions of years this would bring about new species and kinds of living things. As experiments and studies of DNA have continued it has been established that mutations do not add information to the gene pool of the DNA. At best it remains neutral. At worst, it removes information from the gene pool. It has been scientifically proved that from one generation to the next in any species, that there is a decrease in information in the DNA. Once again, evolution has been falsified.

It only takes one falsification to debunk a theory. I have only stated two. But there are many more. I shall be sharing them in future articles.

Decision time

It is time that rational minds concede how we have been duped by false science and false scientists. They speak with “authority” but they are merely teaching fairy tales which they have been taught and without even considering the logic or reality of what they are preaching have passed it on to a following generation. And because they defined themselves as “scientists”, generation after generation have believed them and not learned how to apply logic and wisdom.

Most people believe the lie of evolution because they believe the scientist who told them that it was true. Did they think that there might be another approach? Were they even presented a competing alternative? If they were raised in the public school system of the United States, they were not.

It is true that the foundational scientific principles were established by men who approached science with an open yet critical (questioning and seeking) mind who even considered the possibility and probability of a Creator. These men and women passed on a true science which was logical and provable. But evolutionary scientists who are founded in humanistic materialism have no concept of a Creator and thereby have no foundation for logic. So they must continually adjust, redefine and be surprised by the findings so that they can persist in their belief of evolution.

Yes, it is a belief, not a science. Next time you hear “evolution”, just ask for some “scientific” proof. It is not enough that so-and-so said so or that professor so-and-so said so. As Wendy’s used to say, “Show me the beef”. Show me some proof. Produce some real science that proves evolution. THERE IS NONE!

Evolution. Your time is up.

Evolution is a failed philosophy. It is not science and has been falsified time and again. Time to wake up and stand for what is right and not be led down a fairy tale path by someone who has no mind of their own or wisdom for direction.

Benefits of Classical Singing-The Physical

Singing is an attribute found only in humans. As much as we would like to attribute the act of singing to birds, it is not quite the same. There are many benefits associated with singing. Depending on the style and genre these benefits may vary or in some cases, not be so. In this blog I shall address some physical benefits associated with singing. In particular, I shall focus on benefits of classical singing.

Styles of singing

In modern society we are exposed to many styles of singing. The popular catalog contains a hodgepodge of constructions which vary from “rap”, being a somewhat rhythmic recitative to heavy-metal which a supposedly controlled scream. In between these extremes we find what we commonly hear on AM and FM radio stations and in background music that we hear in our local shopping malls and stores and fast food establishments.

Styles within these range from what we call “hip-hop” to Jazz to Blues to Disco to Crooners to Easy-listening and on and on. As to the benefits, if there are any, of singing in these styles, I shall leave to others who are more knowledgeable of the particular genre. The focus of this blog is the benefits of Classical singing.

Classical singing as opposed to non-classical

What is classical singing? The term “classical” usually refers to things and styles that have stood the test of time and are still employed in what ever field is being addressed. The same definition may be applied to the art of singing. The title of “classical”, or “classic”, is now used, though not totally correctly, to styles that are only decades old. For instance, the term “Classic Rock and Roll”. Usually the reference is to what was practiced 60 or 70 years ago and is rarely followed in the music styles of the popular culture today. The term is an appeal to an older generation. The style is not truly “classical” in the sense that it is a common genre of the present.

True “Classical” anything is something that was practiced in the past and has continued to be practiced for many years and though being refined is still true to the initial foundational principles of the style. Classical singing is that style which is founded on the disciplined training of the vocal instrument which produces vocal music which is controlled and reproduceable in a consistent manner. It is built upon techniques which are developed and strengthened by consistent practice. It is singing built on sound practices which does not harm the vocal mechanism but which build it so that it continually improves the performance of the voice.

Many styles of singing actually tear down the instrument of the voice. Very few popular music singers can go more than a few years before they must address serious physical problems with their voice. This is because the techniques used in most popular music styles is not conducive to the strengthening of the total vocal instrument. Some, if not many, of the techniques actually damage the voice overtly.

Those are practices in the “so-called” singing are actually tearing at the very mechanisms creating the vocal sound. For this reason it is very common for popular singers to have to take rests from their singing and recording on a regular basis. They must continually be under supervision by a physician and receive medication regularly. For this reason some get addicted so drugs.

Vocal classical music

When we talk of classical music in the vocal genre, we are speaking of music which has stood the test of time. For me, and most who are of Western Civilization background, it is the music of Europe and the United States and some Latin American countries.

Much of the music has been viable for hundreds of years and is still just as inspiring and enjoyable as when they were first composed. Many have copied the style and form of those older and have refined and sometimes improved on the older. Though some are not as well-known, or popular, as others, they still fit the category of the “classical” vocal music.

In one sense Classical vocal music is a form as much as a style. Classical vocal music normally is well constructed and assumes a form and structure which helps to focus its’ goal. Vocal classical music will usually have a specific goal in its presentation. It is either to entertain or inspire or relax or invigorate. Or it may be calming or energetic. The composer of classical music will choose a form and then build the music around the form. There may be times the form is adjusted, but usually a return to structure is forth coming.

Classical vocal music adds the dimension of music to the spoken word. Spoken words are powerful, but when coupled with the appropriate music they become overcoming. It is the combination of word with powerful music that makes vocal music classical.

Benefits of Classical vocal singing

In contrast to popular music singing, classical vocal singing cannot be approached lightly. Just as athletes who excel in their given area must begin and develop their body and muscles toward a direction so that they may excel in their sport, so a classical singer must do with the muscles necessary to produce good classical singing. Just as all athletes do not become professional athletes, so also not all classical singers become professional singers. But just as amateur athletes benefit physically from the sport they participate in, so also will the amateur singer benefit from singing in the classical mode.

Some health benefits of singing in the classical mode

In the beginning of any good classical singing class one will more than likely have to address posture. In modern society “slouch” is the norm. Very seldom do you hear of anyone addressing posture. If you take any classical voice lessons one of the first things you will learn is that you must have correct posture. The human body is designed in such a way that it functions to its maximum capacity when in its correct posture for the given event.

In classical vocal singing the best posture is that which is similar to a soldier standing at attention, though a little less rigid. In this position the muscles used in inhalation and expiration are in the best situation to perform at maximum ability. Good posture is good for the whole body. So if you got no more benefit than this you will be better for health wise than if you had not. But that is not all.

The correct posture sets you up to take deep breaths to be able to sing long phrases. As you develop the ability to sing longer phrases, you are developing the practice of taking more air into your lungs and expelling more air from your lungs. As you develop this your body is able to appropriate more easily the oxygen needed for your body to help produce the energy needed for daily activities and expel the carbon dioxide byproduct which your body needs to get rid of. You grow more healthy with this increased function.

As you learn to sing and develop the support mechanisms that are necessary for vocal production you will learn and develop muscle coordination within your body which is necessary for good vocal production. As you get more advanced in your vocal learning you will find that it is not only the breathing and vocal mechanisms which profit from the practice, but you will find that your whole body is becoming involved in the process. Because of the attention to posture and proper use of the muscles necessary to correct singing you will find that your whole body from head to foot is becoming involved in the process of good classical vocal singing.

In conclusion

These are just some health benefits of classical vocal singing. But there are more benefits than just the health benefits. In coming blogs we shall address not only more of the health benefits but also the mental, psychological and the spiritual benefits of classical vocal singing, as well.

Now, go join a good choir or look up a good classical vocal teacher.
