Why a Genesis Book for Kids? Firm understanding of Genesis for children is mandatory – in this digitalised sci-fi hyped, fantastic virtual reality world.
Kids are indoctrinated into the paranormal & God is mythologized alongside monsters, spooky & aliens.
God becomes one of the spooks and is believed as one amongst many supranormal realities.
In an age parents have next to know time for kids, screen becomes their nannie, tutor & mentor. Screen has large chunks of make believe science. True science from Genesis is non negotiable, for kids to build a proper Christian world view.
Genesis story on the family is much needed groundwork, in a world where family is assailed in many ways and often is not well demonstrated even in Christian homes.
Screen makes all of life…. science. If kids are not updated with the true science of origins, they will easily believe the fake science of the screen.
Almost all screen heroes are atheistic & anti-God. Screen addicted child will have them as heroes. So, parents you have to take time at Bedtime to teach Genesis science. For the same reason, Church has to equip itself for adequate Genesis Science ministry for kids.
Passing 14 yrs, kids will face enormous peer pressure to conform to spooky stuff, sexual lusts & ungodly values. So, parents & Church, do all you can before 14 years to build up intellectual & spiritual immunity in your kid, to resist atheistic & paranormal indoctrination.
Dinosaur theories push them to the mythical past & a real God creating a real world in recent times becomes another one of those myths.
Cartoons appear gender neutral and support Transgenderism
Power play of digital games create “all powerful” little Pharaoh, who takes momentous decisions of death & life on the screen when on the game – like God they feel.
Digital age kid needs a proper view on God & man, because he screen is paranormal on both.
Cartoon stories & other films promote gender neutral & LGBTQ values, necessitating Christian children to have a firm grip on Biblical position.
There are question asking, knowledge exalting generations. Parents must be equipped to answer & the Genesis Science book is a great help for bridge building among generations
Rightly grasped Genesis Science helps you to witness.
For all these reasons, you need this book at home. Buy one for your friend & another for your child’s school. Encourage schools to have book in their library.
New study suggests that all humans came from one couple, not so long ago, following mass annihilation of all else – in accordance with Noah’s Ark & flood destruction. All modern humans descended from a solitary pair who lived 100,000 to 200,000 years ago, scientists say.
Scientists surveyed the genetic ‘bar codes’ of five million animals – including humans – from 100,000 different species and deduced that we sprang from a single pair of adults after a catastrophic event almost wiped out the human race.
These bar codes, or snippets of DNA that reside outside the nuclei of living cells, suggest that it’s not just people who came from a single pair of beings, but nine out of every 10 animal species, too
Stoeckle and Thaler, the scientists who headed the study, concluded that ninety percent of all animal species alive today come from parents that all began giving birth at roughly the same time, less than 250 thousand years ago – throwing into doubt the patterns of human evolution
‘This conclusion is very surprising,’ Thaler admitted, ‘and I fought against it as hard as I could.’
The new report from experts at the Rockefeller University along with from the University of Basel published the extraordinary findings in Human Evolution.
The research was led by Senior Research Associate Mark Stoeckle and Research Associate David Thaler of the University of Basel, Switzerland.
They mined ‘big data’ insights from the world’s fast-growing genetic databases and reviewed a large literature in evolutionary theory, including Darwin.
Dr Stoeckle said: ‘At a time when humans place so much emphasis on individual and group differences, maybe we should spend more time on the ways in which we resemble one another and the rest of the animal kingdom.’
The conclusions throw up considerable mystery as to why the need for human life to start again was needed such a relatively short time ago, especially since the last known extinction we know of was during the time of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.
This opens up the possibility of an inbuilt human evolutionary process wherein we break down and die out, leaving the need to start from scratch
We’re also surprisingly similar to not just every other human, but every other species.
‘If a Martian landed on Earth and met a flock of pigeons and a crowd of humans, one would not seem more diverse than the other according to the basic measure of mitochondrial DNA,’ said Jesse Ausubel, Director of the Program for the Human Environment at The Rockefeller University.
‘Culture, life experience and other things can make people very different but in terms of basic biology, we’re like the birds,’ Dr Stoeckle added.
The ‘mitochondrial DNA’ examined in the research is that which mothers pass down from generation to generation and it showed the ‘absence of human exceptionalism.’
‘One might have thought that, due to their high population numbers and wide geographic distribution, humans might have led to greater genetic diversity than other animal species,’ added Stoeckle.
‘At least for mitochondrial DNA, humans turn out to be low to average in genetic diversity.’
Our nation also produced the world’s largest sapphire and that is one of the crown jewels of the House of Windsor. Little Sri Lanka has a remarkable history.
Many are sensing loss of hope and distress about Sri Lanka. Those who are responsible for the living fare of employees are doubly vexed. Lanka was a thriving kingdom often visited by ships both from far east and from the great empires of the Middle East and Europe. We were Serendib to Arabs, Taprobane to Greeks, Ophir to Phoenicians. We were a hub port for Chinese Roman, Greek and Phoenician ships. Ovir (Biblical Ophir) was a port on the North Western Coast of Lanka. East and the west met in this port. We were a centre for Chinese silk and other eastern products such as Musk, Sandalwood to be exchanged for what the West brought. At the time of the Hindu epic Ramayana, Sri Lanka ruled by Ravana (900 BC) was more prosperous than India, says Dr Karan Singh, Chairman of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR).
Delivering the first Lakshman Kadirgamar Memorial Lecture, he said: “In the Ramayana – although its author was Mahrishi Valmiki, an Indian – it seems clear that Sri Lanka was much more prosperous than India.” “It was referred to as Swarnamayi Lanka (the golden Lanka) and contains graphic descriptions of the beautiful palaces and buildings that existed there several millennia ago.”
“As its position is central, the island is the resort of ships from all parts of India, Persia, and Ethiopia, and, in like manner, many are despatched from it. From the inner 57 countries; I mean China, and other emporiums, it receives silk 58 , aloes, cloves, clove-wood, chandana59 , and whatever else they produce. These it again transmits to the outer ports 60 ,—I mean to Male 61 , whence the pepper comes; to Calliana 62 , where there is brass and sesamine-wood, and materials for dress (for it is also a place of great trade), and to Sindon 63 , where they get musk, castor, and androstachum64 , to Persia, the Homeritic coasts 65 , and Adule. Receiving in return the exports of those emporiums, Taprobane exchanges them in the inner ports (to the east of Cape Comorin) sending her own produce along with them to each”.
(W.E. Tennant’s Ancient Ceylon quoting Sopater)
We ourselves exported Elephants, Ivory, Sapphire, Rubies, Pearls, Cinnamon (we were known as the Cinnamon mart), Sandalwood. Lanka sent many an embassy to China, Rome and Persia. In 1000 BC Lanka was reported as being 900 miles broad and wide. This is seen in maps by Ptolemy and confirmed by Sopater. In 900 BC (?Ravana) and in 100 BC (Kelanitissa) sea waves (?tsunami) destroyed and engulfed more than 90% of the then land mass of Lanka. With it we lost the gold deposits.
I recently heard that some scholars think Ophir was Sri Lanka and we certainly sent Cinnamon to Solomon. Septuagint calls Cinnamon “Kekunanama” which is the Sinhala (derived from Sanskrit) name. Sri Lanka also has Ivory, peacocks, sandalwood, precious stones – latter more than any other nation. Exod 30:23
1Ki 10:11 And also the navy of Hiram which brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir great abundance of almug trees (sandalwood) and precious stones. 2Ch 9:10 And also the servants of Hiram, and the servants of Solomon who brought gold from Ophir, brought algum trees and precious stones.
We sent Cinnamon to Solomon’s temple

Jon 1:3 –
To flee unto Tarshish – Some say Tartessus, in Spain, near the straits of Gibraltar, others, Tarsus, in Cilicia; and others, Taprobana, or the island of Ceylon, formerly called Taprobah; and Tabrobavagh in Sanskrit, to the present day. (Clarke’ Commentary). Tarsus of west (Near Spain) and a Tarsus of the East which some say was Sri Lanka (Taprobane – ancient name).
1Ki 9:28 – And they came to Ophir,…. About which place there are various opinions; some take it to be the little island of Zocatora, on the eastern coast of Africa, at a small distance from the straits of Babelmandel; others the island of Ceylon; others Sofala in (Gill) Cinnamon – is obtained from a tree allied to the laurel that grows in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and other islands of the Indian Ocean, known in Botany as the Cinnamomum zeylanicum. It is the inner rind of the tree dried in the sun. It was imported from India in very early times by the people of Ophir, and brought with other spices from the south part of Arabia by the trading caravans that visited Egypt and Syria. The mention of these spices in Exodus may be taken as the earliest notice we have connected with commerce with the remote East.
Sri Lanka probably suffered a tsunami in 900 BC (?Ravana was king) and 200 BC (Kelanitissa was king) and lost 90% of her land mass. According to the maps of Ptolemy, Taprobane was 900 miles length and breadth. Sri Lanka lost her gold coast during these tsunamis. It is in this area that Petroleum has now been found.
Ophir was Ovir – older name for Mannar, sea port on North West coast of Sri Lanka, known as the G reat Emporium in ancient times because it was the hub between East and west. Tarshish some say was Galle, an ancient Port in the south of Sri Lanka.
Hebrew names for Apes, Peacock, Gems, Ivory in 1 K10:22 are transliteration from the Tamil used in Ovir (North West Sri Lanka) at that time.
We are holding on to the hope that the Lord of the Nations will restore prosperity to Sri Lanka.
A 5D spherically symmetric expanding universe is young – creation.com
by John Hartnett
Carmelian Cosmological General Relativity theory is considered in five dimensions. For it to be consistent with both Cosmological Relativity on the largest scales and Special Relativity on the smallest scales, the acceleration of the expansion of the cosmos must have been extremely large at Creation and must be zero at the present epoch. Hence the forced stretching of the fabric of space only occurred during the Creation Week and then ceased. This implies that during the creation of the heavenly bodies, massive time dilation occurred on Earth at the centre of the expansion. It is a necessary conclusion from the 5D theory describing a spherically symmetric expanding universe that light from the most distant sources reaches Earth within the biblical time scale as measured by local atomic time, but takes billions of years as measured in cosmic time.
In physics today we have the situation where Einstein’s Special Relativity (SR) theory has been very successfully applied in the local laboratory frame with moving and stationary clocks, to GPS satellites, and in analysing the decay of cosmic particles on Earth. Einstein’s Equivalence Principle (EEP) and his General Relativity (GR) theory have also been extensively tested with space-borne clocks in rockets and satellites.
It appears that it also has been successfully applied to the large-scale structure of the cosmos—cosmology. Today, the framework of Friedmann–Lemaître–Robertson–Walker (FLRW) is used to describe the expansion of the cosmos. However, various anomalies present themselves, including the mysterious ‘dark’ matter and ‘dark’ energy, which are said to comprise about 22% and 74% of the current universe, respectively. But they are still unknown. Moreover we are told that the universe underwent a rapid expansion, and this is the reason the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) is so smooth and why we don’t find monopoles. There are also many other problems1 with what has now become the standard paradigm—the big bang origin and evolution of the universe. It all seems to be unravelling at the seams.2,3
In recent years, a new five-dimensional cosmology has begun to challenge the standard model—Cosmological Special Relativity (CSR) and Cosmological General Relativity (CGR), developed by Moshe Carmeli.4–9 However, it might well be asked whether the application of GR to the universe as a whole is correct. The underlying principle upon which the standard model is built is the Copernican or cosmological principle, which essentially says that the physics we see here is the same for the whole universe at all epochs of time. It also says that wherever the observer is, he will see essentially the same picture of the distribution of galaxies in the universe. But if that principle is wrong, then the model that results is invalid. This seems to be the state of what is nowadays called ‘consensus cosmology’.
In this paper I explore an extension of Carmelian cosmology. In itself, it has had success in describing the large-scale structure as seen in the type 1a supernovae distance modulus versus redshift data,10,11 and in fitting to the anomalous rotation curves of spiral galaxies.12 I propose that the only 5D spacetimevelocity metric that can be correct on both the local scale, reproducing the 4D spacetime metric of SR and GR, and on the cosmological scale, reproducing the 4D spacevelocity metric of CSR and CGR, is one that requires that enormous cosmological acceleration and accompanying time dilation has occurred, in the past, between Earth clocks and those in the rest of the universe. This means the universe is very young as measured by Earth clocks. It only has the appearance of great age because we are biased by the vast size of the universe. Based on the observed retardation of cosmological clocks in the distant universe, I postulate that during Creation Week, specifically on Day 4, Earth clocks ran extremely slowly compared to the rest of the universe.
This means that if the new theory is shown to fit the observations of the large-scale structure of the universe and is consistent with Einstein’s well-tested special relativity theory, then we are forced to conclude that the correct understanding of the expanding universe means that clocks on Earth once ran at much slower rates than clocks in the universe. As a result, we have a mechanism for light to travel to Earth from the most distant galaxies within the biblical timescale.
The new 5D cosmology contains all of standard GR as a subset. All of the results in GR that are experimentally supported are also obtained in CGR.8 On the local scale where the universe is not expanding, Cosmological Relativity has no application. CSR applies a structure, similar to SR, to the whole cosmos without taking matter into account. When matter is added, CGR is required.
Here the CGR theory is considered using a Riemannian five-dimensional presentation of gravitation in which the coordinates are those of Hubble (i.e. proper distances as measured by the Hubble law and the measured redshifts of galaxies), and atomic time as measured by Earth clocks.
The metric4,7 used by Carmeli, in a covariant theory, extends the number of dimensions of the universe by the addition of a new dimension—the radial velocity of the galaxies in the Hubble flow. The Hubble law is assumed as a fundamental axiom for the universe and the galaxies are distributed accordingly.
5D line element
Initially, let us confine the discussion to an expanding universe without matter. The line element5,6 is that of CSR and is given by
where τ is the Hubble-Carmeli time constant, the reciprocal of the Hubble parameter H0 in the limit of weak gravity, and it is a constant in this epoch of time. The coordinate v is the expansion velocity of the cosmos, the radial speed of the expanding fabric of space. Coordinates x, y and z are spatial coordinates, and t is atomic time as recorded by Earth-based clocks. When ds = 0 one gets the Hubble expansion with no gravity, but this also requires dt = 0.
where u = dr/dt. Therefore the relativistic γ-factor (γE) is
And when dv/dt → 0,
as per Einstein’s SR. This is because SR does not deal with an expanding space; that is, v is identically zero. The result is the usual γ-factor in SR, which causes strange relativistic effects (time dilation and length contraction) at high relative speeds; that is, where u → c. Besides on the local scale, the universe is not expanding now.
γ-factor in CSR
Similarly, from (1) it follows that
Dividing by ds2 ,
where tc = dr/dv is cosmic time measured backwards from tc = 0 at the observer, but determined from the expansion. By contrast, t is the locally measured atomic time. Therefore the relativistic γ-factor (γC ) is
When dv/dt is large compared to a0 = c/τ
as per Carmeli’s CSR.7 This is the normal case in the cosmos in CSR. The motion of the galaxies is dominated by the expansion, and local motions are negligibly small. As tc → τ, this γ-factor causes velocity dilation and length contraction analogous to that in SR.
Since we assume Hubble law to be axiomatically true, v ≈ H0 r. Therefore locally,
Hence it follows that dv/dt → 0 as dr/dt → 0. We know that local space is not expanding. Therefore it follows from (2) that we can set dv/dt → 0 in (4) resulting in (5), and hence space and time coordinates transform according to the usual Lorentz transformations in SR.
In cosmology, space and velocity coordinates transform by the cosmological transformation,13
Comparing the above transformations shows that the cosmological transformation can be formally obtained from the Lorentz transformation by changing t to v and c to τ (hence u/c → tc /τ). Thus the transfer from ordinary physics to the expanding universe, under the above assumption of empty space, for null four-vectors is simply achieved by replacing u/c by tc /τ, where tc is the cosmic time measured with respect to us now.
Let us now suppose that the observer is located at the centre of the expansion. Let us also represent the time interval recorded by an inertial clock, co-moving with expanding sources14 attached to space as dT and local Earth-based atomic time interval as dt. From (2) we can write
Let us assume that motion through space is negligible. Therefore with u → 0,
At the present epoch dv/dt = 0 because we observe no expansion. This means, except for curvature effects, which are presently ignored, clocks in the universe run essentially at the same rate as on Earth. However, if dv/dt was much greater than c/τ = a0, a universal constant, it follows that dt << dT. I propose that this was the case during Day 4 of Creation Week and vast amounts of time passed on the galaxies expanding out from the centre of the universe with little time passing at the centre.
This is the critical point in understanding this paper. The assumption is that during the creation of the heavenly bodies15 on Day 4 the universe underwent a very rapid expansion. For example, the Bible tells us:
‘He wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent’ (Psalms 104:2).
‘He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in’ (Isaiah 40:22).
‘This is what God the Lord says—he who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it’ (Isaiah 42:5).
‘This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the Lord, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens’ (Isaiah 44:24).
The very fabric of space was stretched, and during that time of stretching, stars and galaxies were created.16 In order to conserve energy (and because of the underlying conservation laws imposed by the Creator) the period also involved massive particle production. This conclusion naturally results from the same 5D theory.17 This involved the creation of the stars and galaxies via massive ejection events from the centres of active galaxies and quasars. Though still controversial, this idea has observational support. Halton Arp and other astrophysicists have published many papers and a few books18 supporting this hypothesis based on decades of observations. Their view is totally naturalistic, whereas in the creationary model presented here all matter created this way was created during Day 4. This was part of the creation of the heavenly bodies, which we are able to see and which reveals His Glory for all to see.19
Now considering the fact that this would mean when we look out into the cosmos we are looking back in time, due to the finite speed of light, we are then looking at the events of Day 4 creation as they are actually happening. This also implies that the expansion of the universe only occurred during the Creation period, over six thousand years ago as measured by Earth clocks. The universe may no longer be expanding; at least the expansion is no longer accelerating. But we are seeing the after-effects of that expansion.
Therefore we expect that the environs of the solar system are not affected by any expansion now, which is consistent with the Hubble law, i.e. no expansion locally. But outside the Milky Way residual effects are still observed, particularly towards the limit of observation. And it is at great distances and towards the limits of the visible universe where the CGR theory is most applicable. But since we are looking back in time the great distant events actually occurred during the Creation Week. A large value of dv/dt, meaning dt/dv << a0 (c.f. eq. (8)), is consistent with the basis of CGR, which has been successfully applied to the high redshift (very distant) observations of the cosmos.10
The question might be asked, ‘Shouldn’t we then see massive blueshifts because of the existence of the large time dilation between sources at the edge of the universe and those at the observer?’ No, the time dilation that (14) refers to only occurred on Earth during the period of rapid expansion. Once the expansion was switched off there would be no difference in clock rates.20 And the expansion was switched off six thousand years ago. The Creator, who is omnipresent, switched off the acceleration when he stopped stretching out the fabric of space at that time. If we were on Earth to observe the cosmos during the period when the acceleration stopped we may have seen blueshifted starlight change colour as Earth clocks began to tick at approximately the same rate as cosmic clocks.
What we now observe in the universe is the redshifted light from the galaxies that has resulted from the expansion, not from this time dilation mechanism. The light is continuing to travel towards the Earth from the distant galaxies, as it has for billions of years by cosmological clocks, but because Earth clocks now run at the same rate we only observe expansion effects. The reference clocks in the cosmos are these cosmological or Hubble clocks, which can be related to redshift z by9
As z → ∞ we are seeing back towards the beginning of time, where tc → τ ≈ 13 billion years. But because this observation does not take into account the episode of rapid (superluminal) expansion (which is not observable today) the universal constant τ more correctly describes the size of the universe, not its true age as measured by Earth clocks.
One-way speed of light
We can write (1) as
where dr2 = dx2 + dy2 + dz2. Dividing (16) by dt2, and equating ds = 0 for the trajectory of a photon in spacetimevelocity, we get
The speed of light, c, in (17) is actually the locally measured two-way speed. The speed dr/dt is not the measurable two-way speed of light c but the non-measurable one-way speed of light.21,22 It tells us the speed of the expansion with respect to local Earth-based atomic clocks. Notice if dv/dt is zero we get the usual limiting speed c of SR. However, if dv/dt was extremely large in the unobservable past in the vicinity of Earth, as it now appears to be in the cosmos, which is in our past, then the one-way speed of light also was much larger then.
The apparent effect on the one-way speed of light dr/dt is really the direct result of time dilation. The actual measurable speed of light has not changed. It is time that is the variable in these equations, and as a result only appears to be producing enormous theoretical changes in the one-way speed of light, as seen by the observer. The actual speed of light is always the two-way speed c and is constant.
Spherically symmetric universe
From (16) it may be noted that this result is true in general for any coordinate system. In the real universe I consider the case of spherically symmetric coordinates, but it should be remembered that the time dilation is not the result of the choice of a coordinate frame.
In a spherically symmetric, isotropic, expanding23 universe, evenly filled with matter of density Ωm, it can be shown that for a photon trajectory:
where the effects of adding matter have been included in (17). Here Ωm is the averaged matter density of the universe expressed as a fraction of the critical density, which in this theory is 3/8πGτ2 ≈ 10–29 g/cm3 . The additional term results from solving Carmelian 4D spacevelocity representation of the large scale structure of the universe.
At the current epoch anywhere in the universe (17) holds. That means that the local physics is determined solely by SR, as expected, because dv/dt measured against local clocks is zero. However at past epochs dv/dt is non-zero and CSR must be applied instead. When matter is added, on a sufficiently large enough scale, the situation changes and we use (18). This means (18) is only really valid in a neighbourhood of a universe that is spherically symmetric around the origin—hence it must involve an isotropic matter distribution. Homogeneity is not required.
Light travel time
In order to calculate the light travel time in the universe from light sources at the edge we need to know the speed of the photons in terms of atomic time as measured by Earth clocks which have undergone a period of massive time dilation during the first days of Creation, especially on Day 4 when the Creator created the heavenly bodies. This is not the speed of light in terms of cosmic time, which is always c, and since Earth clocks now tick with nearly the same rate as cosmic clocks c is the locally measured value now also. So we need to know dr/dt where r is the proper distance to the source and t is atomic time units on Earth.
We have observed in (8) that the value of dv/dt needs to be very large at high redshifts (z >> 0) at cosmic times tc >> 0, but from (4) it is clear dv/dt needs to be zero at the current epoch tc = 0 (z ≈ 0). This is best described by a step function,
as shown in the solid curve in figure 1. The function (19) is shown with a finite maximum value, which at this stage we can only say was extremely large. This means that at the Creation the acceleration dv/dt was very large and then at some value of redshift z ≈ 0 the acceleration was switched to, or rapidly decreased to, zero. This switching was physically associated with the stretching of the fabric of space itself, as God spread out the heavens.
Now the function (19) can be approximated by an exponential of the form
where η is a dimensionless proportionality constant that is yet to be determined. The function in (20) has the needed characteristics and can be related to redshift z, using (15). This function is also illustrated by the broken curve in figure 1 where a maximum value has been imposed. However, for the purpose of the following calculations, (20) is used instead, which increases without bound as tc → τ or as z → ∞.
From a comparison of the magnitudes of the terms in (18) the matter density term can be neglected for the purposes of calculating the light travel time in the universe in terms of Earth atomic time units. It follows from (18) with Ωm = 1 and (20) that
is the one-way speed of light; the speed light travels toward the observer at the origin of a spherically symmetric universe, determined from the proper distances which the photons travel but with respect to local Earth-based atomic clocks. Note that (17) does not depend on spherical matter symmetry, but it only applies to an empty universe.
Into (21) we can substitute tc /τ → v/c, where v is the expansion speed. Now I make the assumption that the Hubble law (v ≈ r/τ) also applied at the Creation. Therefore it follows that
By integrating (22) we can calculate the distance light travelled in atomic time t:
With c = 1 light-year/year and the chosen value of τ = 13.6 billion years11 the distance scale cτ = 13.6 billion light-years. Now the light travel time has been calculated from (23) using η = 1012 and 1013 , and is shown in figure 2. For large γ in (23) the light travel time t approaches a maximum value of 2τ/η. The result is an exponentially rising function that means light fills the universe to vast distances within 1 day (by Earth-based clocks) assuming the value of η = 1013. Depending on the exact magnitude of the undetermined parameter the light travel time may be days or, at most, years as measured by Earth based clocks.
Estimates for the size and extent of the acceleration term dv/dt may vary. At the present epoch in our local vicinity it is identically zero because the environment of the solar system is designed for life. In the past it was enormously larger as evidenced by the cosmos. Reducing the value of η in (23) will increase the length of time for light to traverse space in our time units, but this theory solves what has seemed to be a difficult problem.
Within the framework of Carmelian cosmology, for the 5D theory to be consistent on all scales (i.e. consistent with both SR on the local scale and CGR on the largest scales), the acceleration of the fabric of the expanding universe must be extremely large at high redshift and zero in the solar system. This then leads to the conclusion that at the Creation massive time dilation occurred with respect to the observer at the centre of a spherically symmetric, expanding universe. It also means that what we would calculate the one-way speed of light (not the actual speed of light that determines the physics in any local environment) is extremely large at high redshift—a direct result of massive time dilation and not any change in the speed of light. Therefore, light from the most distant galaxies could traverse the distances in a matter of a few days as measured by Earth-based atomic clocks, depending on the details of the magnitude of the past acceleration.
And there are no anomalous results on the aberration of starlight or any other well-proven relativistic effects because the speed of light measured locally with atomic clocks is always the constant c. Light arriving at Earth is stretched by expansion (hence redshifts observed) but because Earth based clocks at the present epoch run nearly at the same rate as cosmic clocks no other effects are observed.
The time dilation effect occurred on Earth during the Creation Week and was switched off simultaneously with the cessation of the acceleration of the expansion. This means the universe may no longer be expanding; we only see residual effects because of the finite travel time of light. An observer on Earth during the epoch of expansion would have seen large blueshifts. Currently, only redshifts are observed on the large scale in the universe. Everywhere within six thousand light years of Earth the expansion can be observed to have ceased, and this sphere of observation expands as the light continues to arrive from farther and farther away. Therefore events farther out are coming from Creation Week.
Observations are consistent our galaxy being situated at the centre of a 5D spherically symmetric universe of finite extent that has expanded many-fold. In terms of cosmological clocks it is as if the universe appears like a still photograph. This is the result of the vast distances and slow intrinsic motions on the cosmological scale. Nevertheless, the validity of the new theory applying to both the current and past epochs leads to the inescapable conclusion that the time it has taken light to travel from the most distant sources to Earth is billions of years of cosmic time, yet a matter of only days or years in local atomic time units.

Ten Points for Urgent Reformation – Reform the Deform.
1. Transform Power play in church to family model – senior serves the younger & younger prepare for loyalty & long term affiliation, rather than seek the next perk. Message of power works on the short run. Power attracts the ambitious. The deeper soul is repulsed. As a result, church ministry attracts the “quick on the draw” kind of young minister. Of course they learnt the style form a “successful senior”. Solomon to Rehoboam deconstruct occurred because senior Solomon, in his latter years, was self aggrandizing and the Son followed on, until God disrupted and subjects seceded. We need to get to “meek will rule” model of ministry, which carries real heaven given authority. God anoints the authentic and not the fake.
2. Prophecy hype, “talk show world” style of ministry is fantasizing greatness and is crashing many talented people on the waves of superfluous buoyancy. We have to root ministry in compassion
3. Fake miracle hype must give way to real Holy Spirit presence & touch
4. We need to Repent for Luxuriant abundance for few & prosperity bubble – we need to recover social consciousness
5. We must get back to each reach one to translate one from darkness to light. Sheep rustling is not kingdom activity but man strategy
6. Moral confluence with societal mud sludge is sinking the Church. Compromise on LGBT, abortion, alcohol, divorce, premarital sex has to be forsaken and recover our foundations that are all but washed under the moral mudslide. .
7. Endless splintering of Churches is real scandal – celebrity star approach to pastorate moves people from long faithful places. The One man show must turn to team & presbytery
8. A Clarion call to Turn from Secret sin dalliance in the ministry
9. Recover youth & kids from digital fantasy. Give them truth & not glamour. They are fake fazed. They will respond to truth & to a call of commitment. At each age we need to grow the call of God.
10. Recognise apostles. Get them back to church life. Stop the bashing of Government & politicians. Be the Government of God. – make church different from power politics & corporate profit. Stitch in time gaping holes.
Engineered Demographic Collapse of the West – “Migrant Crisis”
, July 7, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — The demographic collapse of the West in recent decades was planned in order to create the necessary conditions to usher in a New World Order, and the authors of this collapse are now influencing the Vatican at the highest levels, the former president of the Vatican bank has said.
Speaking at the first international conference of the John Paul II academy for human life and the family, Italian economist and banker Ettore Gotti Tedeschi said efforts to decrease the world’s population by globalist elites have set in motion a series of predictable and intended economic, geo-political, and social catastrophes meant to “persuade” people around the world to accept a global “political vision” that would eliminate national sovereignty and institute “gnostic environmentalism” as its “universal religion.”
The recurrent themes of the present papacy are poverty, immigration and the environment, and we are led to believe that these are caused by “the greed of bankers,” war and man, the “cancer of nature,” he said. But this is “fake news” according to Gotti Tedeschi. For him, the cause behind all of these scourges is the “collapse in births.”
The people pushing this fake news, he said, are “gnostic prophets” such as population control proponents Paul Ehrlich, Jeffrey Sachs and Ban Ki-moon who, rejecting the natural law and the divine order of creation, seek to proselytize the world with their “anti-Catholic gnosis.”
According to Gotti Tedeschi, the “greatest enemy” of the New World Order is the family because it provides “education, autonomy and independence” from the state. Its second enemy is the Catholic Church, he said, and yet these gnostic prophets are “rewriting genesis in the halls of the Vatican.”
“It was planned”
“The demographic collapse was planned without any doubt,” Gotti Tedeschi said. “It is unthinkable that the decision makers in the United States and around the world did not know what they would have created by refusing life and the natural law.”
The Italian financier said the economic collapse has been caused by a “collapse in births,” not because couples are having no children, but because they are not having enough to provide economic growth. “Zero growth is two children for a couple,” he said. “Zero growth is substitution,” with the consequence that “GDP stops growing.” Governments have “solved” this problem by “increasing consumerism” and outsourcing production, primarily to Asia.
But as the demographic collapse results in an ever larger aging population, so governments must increase taxes to absorb the costs of those living in retirement, he explained, resulting in a crippling effect on GDP and nations’ economies. “It can appear to grow, but it is a big bluff invented in the last 30 years,” he said.
Gotti Tedeschi believes that none of this has happened by chance, and that the decrease in population was needed in order to produce a crisis in the global economy and so make it easier to usher in a New World Order. “Economy is a formidable means of persuasion,” he said. “It is the best excuse to make people around the world accept a conclusion.”
He referred to the “Kissinger Report,” which he said was partly an attempt to “homogenize culture” by relativizing religion and “if possible, creating religious syncretism.” This goal is helped by immigration, leading to a potentially dangerous mix of religious dogmas that could “cause war.”
The population control movement in the United States dates back to the pro-nazi, pro-eugenics founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger. In 1969, President Richard Nixon criticized population growth in the third world, a problem later addressed by the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future in 1972, directed by J.D. Rockefeller III. At the time, American geo-stratestists thought that population growth in the third world was a threat to American international interests.
This led to the National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200), published by Henry Kissinger two years later, in 1974. The 200-page report specifically states that population growth in the third world is a threat to American international interests because the growing populations need too many resources and the Western industrial system, for example, needs the resources of Africa. The report also called for increased funding to be given to Planned Parenthood.
“Everything was planned,” Gotti Tedeschi believes, lamenting the fact that documents such as the Kissinger Report have largely not been read.
He said the threat of environmental catastrophe, which he calls “fake news,” is now used to push for a reduction in the population gap between East and West. Not only that, but the growing gap between “too many rich and old” people and “too many young people who are unemployed” is used to “create the spirit for accepting euthanasia.” Such a mentality is “criminal,” he said, as he recalled Italy’s Prime Minister (he didn’t say which) telling him one could cut the cost of government expenditure “in one second” through euthanasia which would “cut 25% of the population over 60 years old.”
Gotti Tedeschi also drew attention to the current tension between globalism and nationalism: those who wish for a Europe that helps single countries grow as opposed to globalists who would prefer a Europe that governs all countries and eliminates national sovereignty.
So what can the Church do? “The Church will either collide or be isolated,” he said. But “something has happened that should worry a lot of people,” he added referring to recent actions taken, in particular, by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.
Those currently advising the “top of the Church,” he observed, are population control advocates such as Paul Ehrlich, Jeffrey Sachs, and the former UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon — people he calls “gnostic prophets.”
To transform the “divine genesis into a gnostic genesis,” and to do this at the Pontifical Academy inside the Vatican would be their “masterpiece,” he said.
“We are near” to this happening, he added. “This should worry everyone.”
This summer, I witnessed something I never anticipated in a young child. I was visiting a friend’s home who had three young children. They also have Alexa, a smart speaker in their kitchen. His kids are growing up with artificial intelligence around them all the time—smart phones, smart watches, and now smart tech you can order around at home.
And that’s exactly what his kids were doing. These children were barking out orders for Alexa as if they were a military officer. And it was not a pleasant site. I actually heard them yell—saying things like:
“Alexa, you’re stupid.” “Alexa, I told you to stop it!” “Alexa, you’re not doing what I told you to do.”
Did anyone see this coming?
The Wall Street Journalunveiled some research recently, saying that this is becoming common among American homes. Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri are now devices our kids will have in childhood—starting at age one.
“This is new territory for families. For the first time, children who are too young to distinguish fantasy from reality are engaging with devices powered by artificial intelligence. Many see smart speakers as magical, imbue them with human traits and boss them around like a Marine drill instructor, according to several new studies in the past year.”
Although one dad started training his daughter to talk respectfully, he was stunned that Alexa was “turning our daughter into a raging ***hole.” “I still have concerns,” he said. “Cognitively, I’m not sure a kid gets why you can boss Alexa around but not a person.”
Herein lies the problem.
The Dark Side of Our Smart World
Our smart technology is evolving more quickly than we can civilize it. Or, should I say, more quickly than we can civilize ourselves. The Wall Street Journalcontinues:
“Parents are often apprehensive when they see their 1-year-olds interacting with smart speakers, citing concerns about the impact on their social skills, according to a 2018 study of 75 households at Carnegie Mellon University.”
The problem, as I see it, is that our students may be cognitively advanced (thanks to accessible information as early as preschool), yet socially behind. In fact, modern culture is producing adolescents who are:
Biologically advanced (We understand nutrition better than ever.)
Cognitively advanced (We are more informed than ever.)
Socially behind (We are not teaching our children how to have civil discourse.)
Emotionally behind (We are failing to develop emotionally resilient kids.)
“Children under 4 typically can’t distinguish fantasy from reality. ‘Could Alexa be a small woman inside a machine? To a 3-year-old, absolutely, she could,’ says David Hill, chairman of the American Academy of Pediatrics council on communications and media. Parents can help children learn to test
their perceptions by asking, ‘Have you ever seen anybody who was small enough to fit in there?’ says Dr. Hill, an author and a Wilmington, N.C., pediatrician.”
By older ages, kids do distinguish between real and fantasy, but now there are new challenges to address. It’s been reported that middle school students are confiding in virtual devices (like Alexa) at times when they don’t feel safe confiding in humans. Or, they ask Alexa or Siri for help on their homework, instead of figuring out the problems on their own. The theory is: the device won’t be as critical or judgmental as people usually are. Herein lies the problem:
If a young person gets used to bossing a device around without any pushback, they do not fare well. They may even give up interfacing with peers when they disagree.
It is so much easier to interact with smart technology than with human beings. Why? Because we get to be the boss. And our bossy behavior is more likely to spill over in interactions with peers than with parents, says Solace Shen, co-author of several studies on social robots and a researcher at Robinhood Markets, Inc.
Our Marching Orders
This is one more reason why our schools and families must intentionally teach Social and Emotional Learning (S.E.L.). We can no longer treat this as a luxury. I believe it is as important as reading, writing and
arithmetic. Don’t believe me? Just neglect teaching S.E.L. at your school or in your home and watch what happens. We’ll all see this reality within the next decade, if we fail to teach it now. The following elements should be included in Social and Emotional Learning:
