The Process of God’s Creation

Both Scripture and science point to a time of creation; yet only Scripture declares God is the One who created. Genesis 1 and 2 reveal that He created, what He created, and some details of how and in what order  He created. In this session, Dr. Ross discusses some of these aspects of God’s creative work on earth, while Dr. Kaiser’s clips offer additional insight regarding Scripture’s intended meaning of the „days” of creation.

The Complexity of God’s Creation (Video)

Pentru traducere automata, fa click aici – Romanian

The Bible affirms that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. As scientists discover the details regarding the universe’s creation, they are finding an enormous level of complexity. This complexity is so far beyond what has been previously expected and known that the information increasingly points to a supernatural Creator of all things rather than a universe evolving over time through change or random processes.

Have you ever considered that the skies „shout out” evidence for God? The more scientists learn about the sun, moon, stars, and other components of outer space, the more evidence is found for an Intelligent Designer who created all things.

The Last Instructions of Jesus (Tenth Resurrection Appearance) and His Ascension

Ultimile Instructiuni ale Domnului Isus

Pentru traducere automata, fa click aici – Romanian

After Jesus’ resurrection, he was on earth for 40 days (Acts 1:3), then He led His followers out to Bethany, just outside Jerusalem, and „lifting up His hands, He blessed them. While He blessed them, he parted from them, and was carried up into heaven” (Luke 24:50-51).
John 21:1-23 relates the story of the last appearance of Jesus after His     resurrection.  Then Matthew’s center of these instructions is the future mission to spread the good news through baptism and teaching (Matthew 28:18-20). In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus teaches them to preach repentance and forgiveness of sins  (Matthew 24:47). In the fourth Gospel, Jesus breathes on the disciples the Holy Spirit, thereby empowering them to continue his mission, including the forgiveness of sins (John 20:22-23).


From the upper room to the Mount of Olives. Mark 16:19, 20  Luke 24:50-53, Acts 1:4-11.

A. Jesus blesses them and promises the baptism of the Spirit.

B. He orders them to witness for Him:

  1. In Jerusalem
  2. In Judea
  3. In Samaria
  4. unto the uppermost parts of the earth.

C. He is received up into glory to the right hand of the Father.

D. This is the Old Testament Prophecy fulfillment number 38, that He would ascend. (Compare Psalm 24:7-10 with Mark 16:19; Luke 24:51). Did the resurrected Christ appear before any unsaved individuals? On the strength of Matthew 23:37-39 it would seem He did not.

„O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord.”

These words conclude  the Bible’s account of the greatest  life that was ever lived. It should, however be said that His glory story is not limited to the four Gospel accounts. In fact, each of the sixty-six Biblical books presents a glimpse of this marvelous and mighty Messiah. Note the following „scriptural summary of the Savior”:

Christ in every book (of the Bible)

Christ is the theme of the entire revelation of God. He is promised in Genesis, revealed in the Law, prefigured in its history, praised in poetry, proclaimed in its prophecy, provided in its Gospels, proved in its Acts, preeminent in its Epistles and prevailing in Revelation.

(thanks to Gabi Bogdan for above video, illustrating Christ in every book, through song)

He is seen in every book of the Bible. Take a journey through the Halls of Holy Writ and and in every one of them you will see Christ. Starting with Genesis He is the seed of the woman; in Exodus the Lamb for sinners slain; in Leviticus, our High Priest; in Numbers, the Star of Jacob and the Brazen Serpent; in Deuteronomy,  the Prophet like unto Moses and the Great Rock; in Joshua, the Captain of the Lord’s Hosts; in Judges the Messenger of Jehovah; in Ruth our Kinsman-Redeemer and the Faithful Bridegroom; in 1 Samuel He is seen as the Great Judge; in 2 Samuel as the Princely King; in 1st Kings as David’s Choice; in  2 Kings as the Holiest of All; in 1 Chronicles as King by Birth; in 2 Chronicles as King by Judgement.

In Ezra He is seen as Lord of heaven and earth; in Nehemiah as builder; in Esther our Mordecai; in Job our Daysman and our Risen,  returning Redeemer; in Psalms the Son of God and the Good Shepherd; in Proverbs our Wisdom; in Ecclesiastes as the One above the sun; in Song of Solomon the great Church lover; the one Altogether Lovely and the Chiefest among ten thousand. (VIA)

The ascent into heaven

Only Mark (longer version) and Luke include an account of the ascension. For the other evangelists, Jesus’ return to the Father is taken for granted (implied). Luke wants both to round up (finish) his Gospel and to provide a link with his second volume, The Acts of the Apostles. Favorite themes, first appearing in his infancy narratives, are all fitted into these final two verses–journey, Jerusalem, rejoicing, prayers of praise(Luke 24:52-53). Jesus is portrayed as lifting His hands in blessing over the small group of disciples; in Acts 1:6-11, He will commission them to extend this blessing to the entire world and thus throughout the ages.

God’s Fine-Tuning of the Universe

Does Genesis 1 reflect what science has recently discovered about the creation of the universe? In this session Dr. Hugh Ross shows this is increasingly the case. As astronomers look back at the timing and intricate details of the galaxies, the evidence is growing to show the universe had a beginning, followed by the creation of planet earth in such a way that coincides with the opening verses of Genesis 1.

Dr. Hugh Ross explores the question: Did God leave evidence of Himself in the universe? Did He leave cosmic fingerprints, clues that point to Him in the natural world? Dr. Ross also discusses recent evidence that points to the God of the Bible.

Hugh Norman Ross (born July 24, 1945) is a Canadian American astrophysicist, Christian apologist, and old earth creationist. Ross has a Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of Toronto and an undergraduate degree in physics from the University of British Columbia. He is known for establishing his own ministry called Reasons to Believe that promotes progressive and day-age forms of Old Earth Creationism. Ross accepts the scientific age of the earth and the scientific age of the universe, however he rejects evolution and abiogenesis as explanations for the history and origin of life. (Wikipedia)

The Creation and Flood of Genesis

The story begins with the creation of Man and Woman, the sin committed by Adam and Eve, and the temptationby the snake, which led to their banishment from Paradise. The story continues with the first crime committed by mankind, Cain’s murder of his brother, the condemnation of God, mankind’s corruption and evil, and God’s regret for having created earth. The choice of Noah, a just and upright man to build the Ark, the flood and its clearing the way for a new mankind, the pact of the eternal Covenant between God and all living beings, are told through the clear and simple words of an old nomad shepherd. VIDEO by Victor Girona Noah’s story begins at the 65th minute.

Carl Sagan vs William Lane Craig (Part 2): The Oscillating Universe

William Lane Craig shows despite Carl Sagan’s self-identity as an agnostic, his viewpoint is really atheistic and naturalistic, especially if you claim „The cosmos is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be.” Furthermore, Craig shows through the contingency argument, atheists are presupposing naturalism when they say the universe (despite it being contingent) just is and exists by its own virtue of necessity.

Carl Sagan was a bigger fan of the oscillating universe (the idea the universe went through a number of big bangs and big crunches) compared to the Big Bang Theory. Although Sagan didn’t fully embrace the oscillating universe theory, he certainly found it more plausible than the Big Bang Theory.  VIDEO by religionphilosophy

Brian will refute the silly myth that Genesis 1 & 2 are contradictory creation accounts. Genesis 2 is the detail of what happened in the Garden of Eden on Day 6. In chapter 3, we learn where sin and death and suffering came from. Only in the Biblical Young Earth Creationist worldview is there a basis for the need of a Savior – Jesus Christ, whom Genesis 3:15 foretells.

Do we finally know what followed the Big Bang?

A Report by Tom Clarke for Channel 4 News United Kingdom:

If true, Monday’s result from a radio telescope in the Antarctic is one of the greatest breakthroughs in the history of science. But for the time being it remains a pretty big if.

The finding is a kind of physics double whammy. First, it may be the first ever confirmation of “cosmic inflation”, the process that immediately followed Big Bang. It would also be the first time scientists have seen gravitational waves – predicted by Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity.

Because inflation, so the theory goes, gave rise to the very universe we live in today. Its confirmation would be perhaps the most significant discovery in physics. Alan Heavens, a cosmologist at Imperial College London, told Channel 4 News: “On the face of it it looks quite convincing, but I’m sure people will want to look at the data and the analysis very carefully. But a quick look suggests it quacks like a duck.”

The result was obtained by a radio telescope at the South Pole called BICEP2. Researchers from the Harvard Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics used it to study the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB)

The CMB is the oldest light in the universe, created just 400,000 years after the Big Bang. By studying tiny differences in the polarity of that light the researchers claim to have seen evidence of gravitational waves.

Their presence could only be produced by cosmic inflation. That’s what has got the world of physics very excited.

“This is huge, as big as it gets,” Marc Kamionkowski a cosmologist at Johns Hopkins University who was not part of the Antarctica team, told the New York Times on Monday.

But others are urging a bit more caution. “It’s a maybe,” said Carlos Frenk a cosmologist at the University of Durham told Channel 4 News. “When you look closely at the detail it seems as if it might have too much of a good thing.”

He warns the polarization measurement the Harvard team have found is twice as large as expected. “Either something is wrong with their measurement or inflation is a lot more complicated than we think.”

Ask any scientists and they would tell you no one experiment proves or disproves a theory – the results have to be replicated by others first.

But when it comes to a theory as fundamental as this, said Mr Frenk, it’s important to be even more cautious: “This needs to be verified. And until that happens you can’t take this to the bank.”

Bio –… Brian grew up in a Christian home but attended public schools that taught evolution as man’s beginnings. Brian was a fighter pilot in the Air National Guard for 20 years, and a Captain and pilot for a major national airline for over 32 years. In his early forties, he studied for a graduate degree in computer science. During that period of time, he began to realize that information was the building block of the entire universe. But where did all the information come from? He discovered that the laws of science, all of man’s inventions, and all the computer algorithms and information systems people use have already existed in nature. Humans just figured out how to use them. For the first time in his life, Brian really believed there had to be a Creator God through whom all the information in the universe came into being. He found Him in the Lord Jesus Christ.

In 1993, Brian graduated with a Master’s degree in computer science and engineering from the University Of Colorado. For 10 years, he was President of Rocky Mountain Creation Fellowship ( in Denver, Colorado, where he gave presentations and worked closely with AiG to bring many highly qualified speakers on creation topics to the Denver area. Brian has appeared on both TV and radio shows regarding Biblical and Creation Science topics, and has given many presentations all across the USA on Genesis, dinosaurs, aliens/UFOs, ancient man, and the founding fathers. He is presently an adjunct speaker for Answers in Genesis ( on a variety of topics, including Genesis, biblical creation, science, Christian apologetics, and the inerrancy of Scripture.

Brian has been married to his wife Lise for over 32 years and they now reside in Denver, Colorado. He is currently working on his PhD dissertation in theology and apologetics.

Copleşit de Creaţia lui Dumnezeu – Enigme nedescifrate ale Universului

Dar El a făcut pămîntul prin puterea Lui,
a întemeiat lumea prin înţelepciunea Lui,
a întins cerurile prin priceperea Lui. Ieremia 10:12

Materia neagră

De văzut, n-a văzut-o nimeni, în mod direct, cu telescopul, pentru că  nu poate fi văzută astfel. E numită neagră tocmai pentru că nici nu emite, nici nu absoarbe lumină sau vreo altă formă de radiaţie electromagnetică, cel puţin nu la un nivel care să poată fi detectat cu tehnologia de care dispunem azi.  (Photo above

Dar faptul că n-o vedem nu înseamnă că ea nu există; existenţa şi proprietăţile ei pot fi deduse pe baza efectelor ei gravitaţionale asupra unor lucruri ce pot fi detectate şi măsurate – de exemplu materia vizibilă, radiaţia şi, general, structura Universului.

Cum s-a ajuns la ideea că ea ar exista? Păi, studiind obiecte spaţiale de mari dimensiuni, astrofizicienii au constatat nişte discrepanţe între masa acestora, calculată pe baza efectelor ei gravitaţionale, şi masa calculată pe baza a ceea ce „se vedea”, a „materiei luminoase”, detectabile: stele, gaz, praf cosmic. Concluzia logică a fost că, în afară de „materia luminoasă” (cea care absoarbe sau emite radiaţii electromagnetice şi poate fi astfel detectată cu instrumente ce măsoară acele radiaţii), acolo mai există ceva – ceva ce nu îşi face simţită prezenţa prin acţiunea asupra fluxurilor de radiaţii, dar care este acolo şi îşi dovedeşte existenţa prin efectele gravitaţionale pe care le produce. Acest „ceva” a fost numit materie neagră.

Şi nu numai că, după toate probabilităţile, materia neagră există, dar şi constituie o parte foarte însemnată a Universului.  După opinia specialiştilor din cadrul misiunii Planck – un studiu internaţional de anvergură în domeniul cosmologiei, condus de Agenţia Spaţială Europeană (ESA) – materia neagră reprezintă 84.5% din totalul materiei din Univers şi 26.8% din tot ceea ce există în Univers – adica materie + energie.

Pentru că nu a putut fi până acum detectată (şi deci studiată) în mod direct, materia neagră păstrează, pentru om, o mulţime de taine.

Cea mai mare dintre nelămuriri: există sau nu există?  Deşi cea mai mare parte a comunităţii ştiinţifice acceptă faptul că există materie neagră şi că prezenţa ei se manifestă gravitaţional, există totuşi şi teorii alternative care încearcă să explice acele efecte gravitaţionale prin alte cauze decât existenţa materiei negre. Deci, credem că există, dar nu suntem sută la sută siguri.

Oamenii de ştiinţă fac, totuşi, progrese în înţelegerea acestei enigme a Universului; la ritmul în care progresează azi ştiinţele şi tehnologia, putem sper ca, peste câteva decenii, să ştim despre materia neagră mult mai mult decât că ea există, dar n-o putem vedea.

Energia neagră

Dar dacă natura materiei negre e departe de a fi înţeleasă, încă şi mai stranie este aşa-numita energie neagră.

În conformitate cu modelul standard al cosmologiei, aceiaşi cercetători din cadrul misiunii Planck (vezi mai sus) consideră că, din totalul masă-energie al Universului, 4.9% ar fi materie obişnuită, 26.8% materie neagră şi 68.3% energie neagră. Adică trăim într-un Univers alcătuit, în proporţie de mai bine de jumătate, din energie neagră, fără să ştim prea bine ce este aceasta.

Energia neagră este definită drept o formă ipotetică de energie, prezentă în tot Universul şi care tinde să accelereze expansiunea acestuia. Începând din anii 1990, multe observaţii indică faptul că Universul se extinde cu o viteză tot mai mare şi, firesc, au fost căutate diverse explicaţii. Una dintre cele mai larg acceptate azi implică această energie neagră, care – se crede – exercită o puternică presiune negativă, generând o forţă de respingere care ar putea explica accelerarea expansiunii Universului. Dar discuţiile despre natura energiei negre sunt, deocamdată, la un nivel exclusiv teoretic; energia neagră nu a fost detectată niciodată, iar dovezile existenţei ei sunt indirecte.

Ca şi în cazul materiei negre, există teorii care oferă explicaţii alternative fenomenelor altminteri explicate prin existenţa acestor chestii negre. Dacă expansiunii Universului i se poate găsi o altă explicaţie, plauzibilă şi poate mai simplă, sau dacă (aşa cum susţine o altă teorie) expansiunea nici nu are loc, ci este o iluzie determinată de mişcarea relativă a regiunii din spaţiu în care ne găsim, faţă de restul Universului, atunci s-ar putea ca energia neagră să nici nu existe, de fapt. Nu ştim nimic sigur, deocamdată. VIDEO by  PureEducation


Forma Universului

Încă un lucru despre care nu ştim nimic sigur, ci doar alcătuim teorii în încercarea de a afla: ce formă are Universul? V-aţi întrebat vreodată? Ei, unii s-au întrebat – şi continuă să se întrebe – dar un răspuns limpede n-a putut da nimeni până acum. De important, e important; printre altele – vedeţi cum toate lucrurile se leagă între ele? – de forma Universului depinde soarta lui viitoare (sau finală, cum vreţi să-i spuneţi), aşa că problema îi interesează în cel mai înalt grad pe aceia care caută să elaboreze scenarii teoretice cât mai plauzibile privitoare la modul în care se va încheia existenţa Universului (spune-mi ce formă ai ca să-ţi spun cum vei sfârşi).

Dar până şi de vorbit despre asta e extrem de dificil; la scara de necuprins a Universului, discuţia despre formă nu se poartă în termeni ca sferă, cub sau alte denumiri de corpuri geometrice pe care le ştim şi le vedem cu ochii minţii, îndată ce li se pomeneşte numele; nu, aici se discută despre spaţiu topologic, varietate tridimensională, coordonate comobile, geometrie locală, curbura spaţiului şi alte asemenea noţiuni despre care, probabil, nu pot vorbi în cunoştinţă de cauză decât vreo câteva sute de mii de oameni din 7 miliarde şi mai bine, câţi locuiesc pe Terra.

De problema formei Universului se ocupă o ramură a ştiinţei numită fizica cosmologică, iar printre specialiştii în această disciplină există diferite puncte de vedere cu privire la chestiunea în cauză.


  • spaţiul dodecaedric Poincaré, sau sfera de omologie Poincaré; asta e forma pe care o are Universul, după opinia specialiştilor de la Observatorul din Paris (2003). Dodecaedrul este un corp geometric cu 12 feţe pentagonale plane, identice, iar o sferă Poincaré ar fi, cumva, un dodecaedru ale cărui feţe, în loc să fie plane şi cu muchii drepte, ar fi uşor curbate, cu unghiurile puţin modificate, astfel încât forma rezultată să se apropie cât mai mult de o sferă.
  • într-o altă viziune (2004), forma spaţiului este descrisă de aşa-numitul „model Picard”, o varietate (în sens matematic) tridimensională hiperbolică. E greu, nu-i aşa? Poate e mai uşor de închipuit dacă spunem că ar arăta cam ca pâlnia unei trompete (în engleză modelul se numeşte Picard horn), al cărei capăt îngust se tot prelungeşte şi se îngustează la infinit, fiind prea departe de noi pentru a putea fi observat, iar noi „locuim” în partea largă a pâlniei, care constituie ceea ce numim Universul observabil.
  • măsurători realizate recent cu ajutorul sondei WMAP (Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe) au dat rezultate pe baza cărora NASA a declarat. ”Ştim acum [în 2013] că Universul este plat, cu o marjă de eroare de numai 0.4%.”  Dar explică apoi că asta se referă numai la partea care poate fi observată, însă că Universul este cu mult mai mare decât ceea ce putem observa direct; de fapt, ăsta e singurul lucru de care putem fi siguri.

Deci: pâlnie Picard? Sferă Poincaré? Plat la infinit? Nu ştim încă.

Câte dimensiuni există în Univers?

Dacă am vorbit, de formă, să vorbim şi de dimensiuni: câte dimensiuni există în Univers? Ne-am obişnuit – mă rog, oamenii de ştiinţă s-au obişnuit şi ne-am luat şi noi după ceea ce spun ei – să considere că în Univers totul se petrece în 4 dimensiuni: trei dimensiuni ale spaţiului, plus cea de-a patra dimensiune – timpul. De aceea se şi vorbeşte despre spaţiu-timp, sau continuum spaţiu-timp. Dar dacă nu sunt numai 4? Dacă sunt mai multe? Câte anume? Le-am putea dovedi experimental existenţa? Sunt aceste dimensiuni o proprietate fundamentală a Universului sau rezultatul aplicării altor legi ale fizicii?

Adevărul e că habar n-avem.
