Know Bible Facts From Fiction, Science and Prophecy for today!

A discovery that many think is a punishing blow to the biblical perspective is in fact an establishing fact!

The secular media has found a new scientific discovery to tout about, and many are crowing that this sets the Biblical perspective on its sides, yes this is a very nice discovery for those in the science community and for Christians alike! Many because of their lack of scientific understanding believe that anything remotely scientific defames what the Bible proclaims, and nothing could be farther from the truth

Let me walk us through the truth taken right from scripture and I will set it to the News article. The truth is what it is, and we shall see just how accurate the Bible holds up to scientific research! I will put in brackets and another color a couple of explanations so that those who are of a lesser scientific mind might understand with simplicity the truth of this matter.

A fundamental but elusive step in the early evolution of life on Earth has been replicated in a laboratory.
Researchers synthesized the basic ingredients of RNA,

( RNA, ribonucleic acid, is the genetic material that transcribes DNA's instructions and translates instruction into construction of protein.) What Is RNA Made Of?
Nucleic acids deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA) are the genetic material of cells.
For eukaryotic cells (like you, me and everything except bacteria) DNA is the genetic blueprint that exists in the cells nucleus and has all the instructions for the structure and function of an organism. RNA is the nucleic acid that carries out the genetic instructions and ultimately translates the genetic blueprint into protein molecules.
Nucleic acids, whether DNA or RNA, are polymers (big molecules) made of smaller monomer subunits called nucleotides.
Each monomer of nucleic acid, a nucleotide, consists of 3 portions:
• a pentose sugar
• one or more phosphate groups
• one of five cyclic nitrogenous bases
In nucleic acids, nucleotides are linked in a sugar-phosphate ‘backbone’ by covalent bonds between phosphate of one nucleotide and sugar of next, with nitrogenous bases extending from the backbone like teeth of a comb. END OF MY EXPLANATION>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

What does the scripture say to us………………………………………
Science has taught us that it took time space energy and mass for the creation of the universe to be created in the Big bang theory. The first verse of the Bible answers your question in Genesis 1:1 In the beginning (Time) GOD (ultimate energy) created the heavens (Space) and the earth. (mass) GOD who is dark matter spoke and crack! The vibration of sound and gravity that is still felt today and as we all know sound goes on into infinity is the expanding universe  static energy many who are ignorant may want to argue this statement but it has been proven many times over and even the data and most recent findings by NASA prove this point, so lets continue with the Article..

a molecule from which the simplest self-replicating structures are made. Until now, they couldn’t explain how these ingredients might have formed.
“It’s like molecular choreography, where the molecules choreograph their own behavior,” said organic chemist John Sutherland of the University of Manchester, co-author of a study in Nature Wednesday.

RNA is now found in living cells, where it carries information between genes and protein-manufacturing cellular components. Scientists think RNA existed early in Earth’s history, providing a necessary intermediate platform between pre-biotic chemicals and DNA, its double-stranded, more-stable descendant.

However, though researchers have been able to show how RNA’s component molecules, called ribonucleotides, could assemble into RNA, their many attempts to synthesize these ribonucleotides have failed. No matter how they combined the ingredients — a sugar, a phosphate, and one of four different nitrogenous molecules, or nucleobases — ribonucleotides just wouldn’t form.

Sutherland’s team took a different approach in what Harvard molecular biologist Jack Szostak called a “synthetic tour de force” in an accompanying commentary in Nature.
“By changing the way we mix the ingredients together, we managed to make ribonucleotides,” said Sutherland. “The chemistry works very effectively from simple precursors, and the conditions required are not distinct from what one might imagine took place on the early Earth.”

Genesis (2). The earth was without form and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the spirit of GOD was hovering over the face of the waters. We know that there is water in space as well

Genesis(3) then GOD said let there be light’; and there was light. Wow again just like the statement above but lets go on!

Genesis (4) God saw the light, that it was good; and GOD divided the light from the darkness.

Genesis (5) GOD called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. Oh and the Day thing that those of you love to quote in the Bible as being a day as we know it or 24 hour period the earths sun was not created yet!

Lets look at what the word means in Hebrew shall we! I will use the Strongs Exhaustive Concordance Bible Dictionary. “DAY” Hebrew and Chaldee reference # 3117 page 63 yowm, yome; from an unused root meaning. To be hot; as a day (as in warm hours) whether lit. or fig. I would like to note here could this heat be like that which is created by friction? Or a nuclear explosion or I won’t go on. (a space of time defined by an associated term), often used adv):- age+ always + chronicles, continually(ance), daily, birth-),each, to)day, (now a, two)days (agone), + elder x end, + evening, +(for) ever
(-lasting, more), x full, life, as (so) long as (…live), (even), now,+ old,+ outlived, + perpetually, + presently, + remaineth, x required, season, x since, space, then, (process of) time, + as at other times, + in trouble weather, (as) when, (a, the, within a) while (that), x whole (+ age), (full) year (ly), + younger.

I think that you get the point that it was a span of time and was not the literal day as most believe it was.

Genesis (6) And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. (Firmament like a canopy or atmosphere)

Genesis (7)And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Genesis (8)And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. (We know from above after verse five that a day is not the actual 24 hour day but was a space of time or a period

Genesis (9) And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

Genesis (10)And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. (Next you have the development of the things on the earth.)

Genesis (11)And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

Genesis (12)And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis (13)And the evening and the morning were the third day. (another space of time or period)

Genesis (14)And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Genesis (15)And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

Genesis (16)And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

Genesis (17)And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

Genesis (18)And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis (19)And the evening and the morning were the fourth day (Period of time or a span of time)

Like other would-be nucleotide synthesizers, Sutherland’s team included phosphate in their mix, but rather than adding it to sugars and nucleobases, they started with an array of even simpler molecules that were probably also in Earth’s primordial ooze.

They mixed the molecules in water, heated the solution, then allowed it to evaporate, leaving behind a residue of hybrid, half-sugar, half-nucleobase molecules. To this residue they again added water, heated it, allowed it evaporate, and then irradiated it.
At each stage of the cycle, the resulting molecules were more complex. At the final stage, Sutherland’s team added phosphate. “Remarkably, it transformed into the ribonucleotide!” said Sutherland.
According to Sutherland, these laboratory conditions resembled those of the life-originating “warm little pond” hypothesized by Charles Darwin if the pond “evaporated, got heated, and then it rained and the sun shone.”
Such conditions are plausible, and Szostak imagined the ongoing cycle of evaporation, heating and condensation providing “a kind of organic snow which could accumulate as a reservoir of material ready for the next step in RNA synthesis.”

Intriguingly, the precursor molecules used by Sutherland’s team have been identified in interstellar dust clouds and on meteorites. (Reread what the Bible has said)
“Ribonucleotides are simply an expression of the fundamental principles of organic chemistry,” said Sutherland. “They’re doing it unwittingly. The instructions for them to do it are inherent in the structure of the precursor materials. And if they can self-assemble so easily, perhaps they shouldn’t be viewed as complicated.” (Or designed)

Genesis (20)And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature (Here is what you are looking for as stated above) that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

Genesis(21)And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis (22)And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

Genesis (23)And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. (A span or period of time)

Genesis (24)And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

Genesis (25)And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis (26)And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Genesis (27) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Genesis (28) And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Genesis (29) And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

Genesis (30)And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
Genesis (31) And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Now if you don’t get it reread it again! God’s word is eternal and this only proves the Bible and  what has been proclaimed from the beginning. Many Christians who take the meaning of the creation story to be the standard 24 hour day need to understand that if the sun were created on the fourth day it would be impossible to judge time by today’s standard, not to mention that time as we know it was shortened!  Now many are going to say how is this possible. Did you know that at one point in time that the atmosphere was thicker than it is today and that the size of most beasts on the earth were larger and lived longer. Research the facts it is much stranger than fiction, and what you think you know is not exactly what you think it is.
