Today is Memorial Day

The Historically challenged Young Whippersnappers among us may wonder

What is Memorial Day ?

and how is it different from Veteran's Day ?

Well, for one thing, according to Wikipedia :

"Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veteran's Day" -- which is observed annually on November 11.

"Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving,

while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans."

To learn more about MEMORIAL DAY -- HERE'S THE LINK

The Circus is no more

Known as The Greatest Show on Earth, The Circus began in 1891.

This week the last performance ended.

The workers and performers are looking for new jobs.

And -- Alas, a very important era is over.

The link today gives some very interesting details about the beginning of the Circus

but it also details some surprising 'spin offs' from it.

I think you will find this verrrrrry interesting.

Matthew 6: 19-21









Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,


where moth and rust doth corrupt,


and where thieves break through and steal:


But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,


where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,


and where thieves do not break through nor steal:


For where your treasure is,


there will your heart be also.

Is it OK for Christians to practice Yoga

Many Christians have begun to practice Yoga. 

Indeed many Churches are now having Yoga classes.

But is this a good thing?

The link to which we are linking today will explain.

But interestingly, at least on the webpage when we logged on to read this link, we found an advertisement on the side for a Free 5-day Meditation course -- apparently using Omharmonics.

We don't know how that ad got there as we are sure that the website would not approve of such a course.  Perhaps it was put there because the company with which they have registered their site put it there.

Whatever the reason -- We clicked on a link that will hopefully make it go away but if it is still there when you log in -- ignore that advertisement.

and just read the article about Christians and Yoga.

So with that said

Same Evidence -- Opposite Conclusions

NASA's Largest Picture Ever Taken

 Pictured on the left is a NASA photo of our Milky Way.

As you know NASA takes lots of pictures and videos.

The video to which we are linking today is truly amazing.

It shows over 100 million stars and details of one Galaxy (The Andromeda Galaxy)

As you look at the video, you might recall the simple phrase in the Bible regarding the creation of the stars, an event that occurred during the 4th day of creation.

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:

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

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.

And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

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.

And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. 

 
                                           Genesis 1:14 - 19 KJV

Just a one liner -- "He made the stars also"

But as you look at today's link, you will doubtless consider that this simple phrase was an amazing under statement.

World's Oldest Computer

This really old computer is known as the Antikythera Mechanism.

It was found in a ship that had sunk in the first century BC in the Aegean Sea.

It has very complicated gears including what appear to be differential gears and is thought to have been used to calculate astronomical positions and etc.

Thus its use on a ship to determine where the ship was would make sense.

We had read about this previously in the book "The Puzzle of Ancient Man" by Donald E. Chittick.  The Antikythera Mechanism was described in Chapter One as an OOPA (out of place artifacts).

OOPA, according to Chittick, "are not an anomaly.  Instead they attest to a high and technologically advanced civilization in the ancient past."

A friend of DIT found today's link to an article in the Washington Post that tells about this amazing find.

South America shows the Flood Progression

Many people don't believe the Flood described in Genesis happened at all.

Others believe there was a Flood but that it was not world wide but only local.

Indeed the picture today from AIG shows what would have happened if a flood covered some mountains but wasn't worldwide.  Sigh

Still others, including those of us at DIT, believe the Bible was correct when it said there was a worldwide flood.

The article to which we are linking today is from ICR

and it provides additional evidence that the flood was indeed worldwide -- just as the Bible said.
