5 Surprising things your Smartphone can do

A couple of years ago my smartphone became dumb (i.e. quit working)

so I had to get another.

And talk about smart !!!

This phone was sooooooo smart that I bought a 300+ page book to figure out how to use it.

And, the interesting thing is that instructions on how to use the Phone to actually call someone didn't appear until page 100.  I kid you not.

So smart phones are realllllly smart and getting smarter every day.

The link today will only mention 5 of the apparently zillions of things a smart phone can do but I think you will find them interesting.

The Ride Along Suitcase

Suitcases have come a long way --

From big trunks on stage coaches and overseas voyages

to hand held suitcases

then to rolling suitcases on 2 wheels such as the one pictured here

and then to the 4 wheeled rolling suitcases

which most folks thought was surely the final evolution of the suitcase --

But wait !!!

Wait?

Yes, it gets even better -- there has been another leap in the evolution of the suitcase !!!

What is it ??? you ask

Well, now we have a suitcase you can ride !!!!

Ride?

Yes, no kidding -- this seems to be the next step in suitcase development

and if it were not so expensive I would want one now.

To learn about and see a short video of the Ridealong Motorized Suitcase HERE'S THE LINK

Retiring on a Cruise Ship

Many folks, perhaps even you, have taken a cruise.

And, for most it was a fun and enjoyable experience and most are also happy and eager to return home when the trip is over.

Some decide to LIVE on a cruise ship.

Computers Unroll and Decipher Scroll

A friend of DIT found this very interesting and unusual article.

What now? you ask

Well it seems that a badly burnt scroll was found but was so badly burned that everyone was afraid to try to unroll it.

It was not a beautiful, easy to unroll and read scroll such as the one pictured here of the Book of Esther.

No -- it was so badly burned and damaged that even touching it could likely totally destroy it.

So, What to do?

Well, believe it or not -- a way was found

A most unusual way.

Antikythera Mechanism and Human Skeleton

On Monday, May 11, 2009 we posted a DIT about the Antikythera mechanism.

What was it?

It was described by Donald Chittick in his Book, The Ancient Puzzle of Man (pictured here) as

“an analog computing device or ‘computer’ (that) was recovered from a ship which had sunk in the Aegean Sea in the first century B.C. ...”

To read more about and see a picture of this ancient computer HERE'S THE LINK

But the reason we are mentioning it again is because there has been additional information about another discovery related to this Antikythera mechanism.

What is it?

Well, it seems that skeletal remains of at least one sailor, who went down with the ship carrying this unusual OOPA (Out Of Place Artifact),have been found.

Yellow Lines on the TV football field


It is saturday and time for all those many college football games

and you are likely lined up on a couch or at a friend's house or somewhere watching the games on TV --

And doubtless you have noticed that, in addition to the normal white lines marking off each 10 yard segment, there is a Yellow Line (and often other lines) added to the TV screen to help you know where the key points of the play are to take place.

These additional lines are not on the field in 'real life' as those of you who go to the games in person have noticed.

But they are on the TV version and are really helpful. 

So, how do these lines get there?  What is the science behind them?

A friend of DIT found this video which explains how it is done. Thanks friend.

Why do leaves change colors in the fall

Yesterday was the Autumnal Equinox

which means, among other things, that the leaves on deciduous trees are going to change colors and fall from the trees.

But why, you ask, do the leaves change from green to other colors?

Autumn begins

Wow, how time flies.  Fall is already here and it seems like the year has just begun.

So what is so important about Autumn? you ask.

Well, it means that today is the day that Summer officially ends and Fall begins.

The 'fancy' name for this event is "The Fall Autumnal Equinox."

So what is the Fall Autumnal Equinox and why is it important?

Well, for one thing, it is that special day at the end of summer and the beginning of fall when the sun at the equator rises in the due East and sets in the due West.

This means that both the day and the night are about 12 hours long.

The reason why they are not exactly 12 hours each is explained in the article below.

But, more significantly, to those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the days will now start getting shorter and shorter as each day passes and the nights will get longer and longer and longer ....

Until we come to the Winter Solstice when the shortest day of the year occurs.

But that is then and this is now.

And today is the Fall Autumnal Equinox.

To read more about the Equinoxes and view a really informative 2 min 38 second video from National Geographic, which they posted for the 2009 equinox,  but same concepts apply every year including this year,

God's Perfect way

Why? Why? Why?

This is the common cry of almost everyone when they look at the 'problems' in their life or in the world or of people or of things around them.

Today is Mayflower Day



A few years ago, while in Southampton, England I saw a strange outline on the pavement.

It is pictured here.

Hmmm. What is this, I thought --

and then I learned that this was the 'footprint' of the size and shape of the Mayflower.

What a tiny tiny vessel.  How brave those folks must have been.

Hymn: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty


Today's Hymn is one of Worship and Praise to the Lord God.

Written in the 1600s, it contains words of worship to the powerful, mighty, loving, one and only Creator God of the Universe.

HERE'S THE LINK to Praise to the Lord, the Almighty


Praise to the Lord, the almighty, the King of creations;
O my soul, praise him, for he is thy health and salvation:
All ye who hear,
Now to his temple draw near,
Joining in glad adoration.

Praise to the Lord, who o'er all things so wondrously reigneth,
Shieldeth thee gently from harm, or when fainting sustaineth:
Hast thou not seen
How thy heart's wishes have been
Granted in what he ordaineth?

Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
Surely his goodness and mercy shall daily attend thee:
Ponder anew
What the Almighty can do,
If to the end he befriend thee.

Praise to the Lord! O let all that is in me adore him!
All that hath life and breath, come now with praises before him!
Let the Amen
Sound from his people again:
Gladly for ay we adore him.

Tomorrow is Grandparent's Day

Grandparents day has been observed in the US on the First Sunday after Labor Day since 1978.

According to Wikipedia there is even a special flower for Grandparents.

What is it?  Well, it is the flower pictured here and it is appropriately named "Forget Me Nots."

Today's DIT is to remind you that tomorrow is the day to 'honor' those of you who are grandparents and to bring a smile to those that aren't.

Either way, the email which I recently received about grandparents, and which has probably gone around the internet a zillion times already, was new to me.

I have no idea who wrote this but they certainly know their 'facts'.

So, without further ado, check out this information about a very special 'Answering Machine' that Grandparents have or wish they have plus some very interesting facts about grandparents as related by their grandchildren.

The Geological Column


 This picture of the Grand Canyon was taken by a good friend of DIT and it vividly shows the many layers.

Usually when you see pictures of the many layers of the Grand Canyon you are told that they were laid down over millions and millions of years.

But, have you considered that they are actually evidence of the worldwide Flood of Noah?

Today we are posting a link to an article (actually it is Chapter 6 in the Book: Evolution Exposed).

This article gives important information about the layers in the Grand Canyon as well as the same or similar layers seen in many other areas of the world. 

These layers are part of what as known as "The Geologic Column". 

So you ask: What is the "Geologic Column"?

Well, as explained in the article,  the Geologic Column is a "graphic representation of the layers of rock that make up the earth's crust."

After reading this, you will likely look again when you see the layers in the Grand Canyon, other canyons, and in the ever the ubiquitous road cuts all over the world.

Jesus did not exist

This is the title of an article to which we are linking today.

The reason for the article was to answer a question that arose as a result of the recent report that a papyrus had been found that told about Jesus being married.

This 'find' was later found (pun intended) to be untrue.

But, during the few days before the correction was made, many folks believed the lie.

One even wrote to AIG asking about it and stating that he believed Jesus did not ever exist.

The insightful reply to this person is the article to which we are linking.

You will find it most interesting and encouraging.

Spoiler alert:  Jesus DID exist and there is much historical evidence to prove His existence.

So with that by way of introduction

Can Creationists be Real Scientists

It may seem like we are mentioning this topic a lot

and perhaps so

but the discussion continues and the secularists continue to be adamant that Creationists can't be real Scientists.

This is important because by characterizing the Creationist Scientists as not capable, their work often never sees the 'light of day' --

Their articles and papers are rejected and not published --

Their discoveries and findings are not noted or appreciated --

They loose their jobs or positions (in educational institutions and etc) because they do not 'toe the line' of the evolutionary worldview

and etc.

So, when we 'happened upon' this video, even though we have mentioned this topic several times recently, we thought you would want to see it also.

The speaker is himself a Creation Scientist, Dr. Jason Lisle, who has a PhD in Astrophysics.

Now I call that 'real' science.

So, HERE'S THE LINK to Can Creationists be Real Scientists.

Journey away from Contemporary Music

As you probably have suspected based on the Hymns that are usually posted on the DITs for Sundays --

we are not big fans of the contemporary style of music in Churches but prefer Hymns.

There are several reasons why -- which we will not go into at this time

because

the article to which we are linking today discusses many of the 'reasons'.

Interestingly it is written by a Musician who used to be 'into' the Contemporary music but is now moving away from that and back to Hymns.

I think you will find his insights very interesting.

Hymn: Thine is the Glory

Today's Hymn was written by Handel and is well known and much loved.

And the message is, as is usual with the 'old' hymns, contains profound gospel insights.

HERE'S THE LINK to Thine is the Glory

Thine is the glory, risen, conqu'ring Son;
Endless is the victory, Thou o'er death hast won;
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
Kept the folded grave clothes where Thy body lay.

Refrain

Thine is the glory, risen conqu'ring Son,
Endless is the vict'ry, Thou o'er death hast won.

Lo! Jesus meets us, risen from the tomb;
Lovingly He greets us, scatters fear and gloom;

Let the church with gladness, hymns of triumph sing;
For her Lord now liveth, death hath lost its sting.

Refrain

No more we doubt Thee, glorious Prince of life;
Life is naught without Thee; aid us in our strife;
Make us more than conqu'rors, through Thy deathless love:
Bring us safe through Jordan to Thy home above.

Refrain

Gatorade Pays Tribute to Peyton

While we are on the topic of sports --

and the beginning of the College Football season --

Yesterday's DIT we saw the Navy Seals parachute into the Tennessee Football stadium

Everyone who is a football fan knows that Tennessee is where Peyton Manning attended and was the Quarterback.

Peyton has recently retired from Football after a long and successful career in the Pros.

Gatorade has produced a touching video reminiscing about letters Peyton wrote to many folks during his career.

Whether you are a football fan or not, this is a video that is a 'must watch'

It's football time

At long long last, the College Football season is beginning.

Usually, as you know, the College games are on Saturday.

But for Tennessee, the well know phrase "It's football time in Tennessee" will ring out at kick off on Thursday, September 1 at 7:30 EST on the SEC Network.

But several months earlier --

During the Orange vs White Tennessee Vols spring football practice in 2016,

the football to begin the practice was delivered by the Navy Seals in the "Tennessee Jump"

You may wonder what it is like to parachute into a Football stadium. 

Well, wonder no more because

You can Live the experience in this video as you watch the Navy Seals parachute  into Neyland Stadium, the Tennessee Football stadium in Knoxville.

Landmarks to look for are the city of Knoxville, the Tennesse River, and, of course,  the stadium.

This is really cool.

Why should we think living things were created by God

Today's DIT link answers an atheists insistence that design is an illusion --

A mother has written to Creation Magazine with a question --

it seems that her son, who is an atheist, is questioning the theory of origins as proposed by Creationists.

He says, from his atheistic perspective, which he has apparently been taught in school,

that "it doesn't matter whether something survives or not.  There is just the appearance of meaningful survival and progression because of the way it works out…"

The mother wants to know how to respond.

Perhaps you have had similar thoughts or discussions.

This article has some very helpful information.

Can Creationists be Scientists?

Last week we discovered that the inventor of the medical MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) Machine was a creationist.

But, the 'view' of the world today is that Creationists can not be 'real' scientists. 

Instead, they say, only evolutionists have the insights needed to be scientists.

This is unusual because when one looks back through history, almost all of the scientists believed in God and that God created everything. 

And, even today, many many scientists believe in God and His creative works.

Dr. Damadian is one.

And there are many others.

The article to which we are linking today lists even more (though there are many more than those who are in the article).

So with that by way of introduction

Hymn: Lead me to Calvary

Today's Hymn speaks of Calvary

Calvary was the place where The Lord God Jesus Christ was Crucified and died.

Why?

To pay the death penalty for our sins.

Jesus never sinned.  Therefore He was able to be  the perfect unblemished substitutionary sacrifice to atone/pay for the sins of sinners.

Anyone who accepts that free gift of His death in payment for your, my, anyone's sins will be forgiven of their sins because Christ's death served as the substitute payment.

HERE'S THE LINK to Lead me to Calvary

The inventor of the MRI was a Creationist

While we are on the subject of Medical Innovations (see yesterday's DIT) --

this is a good time to mention a really big time very helpful invention, the MRI.

This well known medical device, the MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), was invented by Dr Raymond Damadian.

The book, pictured here, tells about this and about the life of Dr. Damadian PhD.

Though he did not receive the Nobel prize for this invention (although his co-workers did), he was the 'brains' behind the invention and President of MRI manufacturing.

CLICK THIS LINK for important information and the timeline of the development of the MRI -- which confirms that Dr. Damadian was the inventor.

So, Why did he not receive the Nobel Prize along with his co-workers? you ask

Well, perhaps it is because he is a (gasp) Creationist --

and today only Evolutionary Scientists are considered to be 'real' scientists.

For more information about Dr. Damadian's invention and the book. HERE'S THE LINK

And HERE'S A LINK that mentions a few of the many Creationists who are 'real' scientists today.

Medical Innovations

This famous classic picture of 'The Doctor' by Sir Luke Fildes was painted in 1891. 

Much has changed in the field of Medicine since that time though the thought processes of diagnosing and treating the patient remains the main thing.

But to assist in the thought processes and treatments -- innumerable innovations have been developed including CT, MRI, Ultrasound, multiple medicines, vaccines,   surgical procedures, and etc. etc. etc.

The 5 minute video to which we are linking today depicts several of the most recent  interesting and innovative inventions.

Hymn: Lord I'm coming Home

Today's Hymn is often sung (or used to be) at the conclusion of the sermon and worship service.

It is a call for sinners to repent from their sins and turn to God for forgiveness and salvation.

The pictures shown as this video plays are of the Biblical account of the Prodigal son returning to his father.

In the same way, today, people need to repent of their sins and come to God the Father.

I've wandered far away from God,
Now I'm coming home;
The paths of sin too long I've trod,
Lord, Im coming home.

Refrain

Coming home, coming home,
Nevermore to roam,
Open wide Thine arms of love,
Lord, Im coming home.

I've wasted many precious years,
Now Im coming home;
I now repent with bitter tears,
Lord, Im coming home.

Refrain

I'm tired of sin and straying, Lord,
Now Im coming home;
Ill trust Thy love, believe Thy Word,
Lord, Im coming home.

Refrain

I need His cleansing blood, I know,
Now Im coming home;
O wash me whiter than the snow,
Lord, Im coming home.

Refrain

More About Air Force One


Yesterday's DIT about Air Force One was short and interesting.

But did you want to know more?

Have you been curious about what the interior looks like --

and what happens in that flying office?

Well, today's DIT will go into great detail.

The video to which we are linking today is an in depth 45 minute documentary produced by National Geographic and posted on youtube.

You may think this sounds like a long time (which is why we are posting this on a Saturday when you might have more time than usual).

But, time will fly (pun intended) when you start watching.  It is really interesting.

Be sure to go 'full screen' for the best effect.

Incest in Noah's family?

This is a question that many folks have considered --

because Incest today is a definite 'no no'.

So, why, you might wonder -- was it not 'wrong' in Noah's Family ?

After the flood, there were only 8 People who survived.  So, it is obvious that there had to be intermarriage among those 8.

But, isn't that incest?

And wouldn't that be wrong?

And what about the children of Adam and Eve.  Who would they marry if not brothers and sisters?

Wouldn't that be wrong?

The verrrrrry short article to which we are linking today will explain.

However, as before, when linking to this site -- it often begins with a short video introduction to the purpose of the website.  After that is over, the article should appear.  If it doesn't, click on the link again and it should work.

Model Airplanes

Usually when one thinks of Model Airplanes, you immediately think of little planes that you assemble, paint, and put on a shelf -- such as the one pictured here for sale at Amazon.

But, there are much much bigger versions of Model Airplanes --

they are almost big enough to hold a person -- but not quite.

They are flown by remote control.

People in clubs and organizations fly them as a hobby and in air shows.

One such show was the IMAA Air Show in 2011.

That is the link for today.

You are going to love this -- and as one person said --

The Miracle of Tears

You probably never though about tears being helpful.

But, they are.

How? you ask.

Well, the article to which we are linking today will explain.

However, as before, when linking to this site -- it often begins with a short video introduction to the purpose of the website.  After that is over, the article should appear.  If it doesn't, click on the link again and it should work.

Hymn: O the deep, deep Love of Jesus

This is another beloved Hymn with the message of the Salvation provided by the Sacrificial substitutionary death of Jesus to pay the death penalty for our sins.

Sung to the familiar tune of Ebenezer, the lyrics are on the screen.

Tiny house from a Grain Silo

Tiny Houses are 'big' these days.

By 'big' we don't mean in size but in popularity.

There are many TV shows that feature Tiny Houses --

such as the house in Portland Oregon in the picture here -- which was taken by Tammy and posted on Wikipedia.

DIT knows one couple that records many shows about tiny houses and watches them all.

Each time they marvel at why people would want to do this and wonder "where do they keep all their stuff (books, etc)."

I guess people in tiny houses are the true 'minimalists'

Anyway, these structures are cute -- as is the one you will see today which was made from a Grain Silo.

It"s not just Black and White

Today's link explains a lot.

How is that? you ask

Well, as you are well aware, there is a lot of discussion and arguments today about races, skin color, and more.

The Bible gives the answer when it discusses Babel because

Babel explains why there are Different People groups.

But many folks refuse to consider the Biblical explanation.

In fact, one objector, posited a complaint which is answered in Today's link.

Check it out.  I think you will find it fascinating.
