Taking a short break from my creation study…Digging deeply into the world of science meted out some pretty interesting/ bazaar findings…Here’s the dirt I’ve recently dug up…I’m probably late to the party on all of this info…so please forgive me if what I am sharing here today is old news to all of you folks out there.
The following is an excerpt from a Computer World UK article….
By the year 2020, you won’t need a keyboard and mouse to control your computer, say Intel researchers. Instead, users will open documents and surf the web using nothing more than their brain waves.If you didn't already know about all of this...Maybe it's time you did.
Scientists at Intel’s research lab in Pittsburgh are working to find ways to read and harness human brain waves so they can be used to operate computers, television sets and cell phones. The brain waves would be harnessed with Intel-developed sensors implanted in people’s brains.
The scientists say the plan is not a scene from a sci-fi movie, Big Brother won’t be planting chips in your brain against your will. Researchers expect that consumers will want the freedom they will gain by using the implant.
Please read Revelation chapter 13
Please take the time to read this extensive article from Time magazine:
*The they I am referring to in the title of this post is the scientific community (in general). And of course, ‘we’ means those of us who are awaiting the rapture of Christ…and who are believers…AKA Christians and ‘Creationists’ as we are laughingly called by those who oppose God.
Please don’t get me wrong…I am not saying that their science is “crazy" in terms of credibility, or that this is all a ridiculous notion…To the contrary, I believe this is not only possible, but it fits into our Christian theology…And being an un-Godly pursuit, it will and can only end in God’s Judgment upon us (mankind)…perhaps before the science gets as far as they are planning for it to go though.
Though the ‘Time’ article is a couple years old, this stuff is still being funded by a young Russian billionaire scientist who is quoted as saying their intent is to create a new human species in which the human brain or consciousness will be downloaded into a virtual body achieving immortality.

Time to get our eyes off of our cell phones my friends…and LOOK UP!
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
If any man have an ear, let him hear.
He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
REVELATION CHAPTER 13
Upon the completeion of this post, it occured to me that my next and final installment of the Creation Story featuring the Tree Of Life fits right into this post...as you hopefully shall see.
Isn't it neat how God takes us on these little side trips into places we would not venture on our own sometimes, in order to bring us into a fuller understanding of his Word and how it all fits together?
