Pre-Frontal Cortex and Critical Thinking



Philippians 4:8-9

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."

Proverbs 31:8-9
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."

Jeremiah 22:3
"This is what the Lord says: Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hand of the oppressor the one who has been robbed. Do no wrong or violence to the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place."

Psalm 146: 7-9
"He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free, the Lord gives sight to the blind, the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the foreigner and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked."

Evolution, a matter of faith

Science is a way to discover what God already has created. Science is not the way to creation but to understand what already exist. Adam and Eve ate from the tree of Knowledge. Therefore, incremental knowledge is in the nature of mankind. Discovering is not the same as Creating.

“Nonsense remains nonsense, even when talked by world-famous scientists.”

Sound waves and creation

Sound is made out of waves. And waves are everywhere.

Source: http://www.space.com/661-sound-waves-left-imprint-universe.html

SAN DIEGO -- The early universe rang with the sound of countless cosmic bells, which filled the primordial darkness with ripples like the surface of a pond pounded by stones. The wave fronts later served as spawning grounds for galaxies, astronomers announced Tuesday.

The effect had been predicted by theory. Researchers found its imprint on the sky in two independent, comprehensive galaxy surveys presented here at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society.

The findings give scientists greater confidence that their limited understand of the universe's structure, contents and evolution are on track.

Sound waves in space may sound unlikely. Here's what astronomers back in the 1960s theorized:

The universe was initially a thick, hot soup that trapped light. About 350,000 years after the Big Bang -- the theoretical beginning of it all some 13.7 billion years ago -- things cleared and an imprint of the earlier conditions was left on the entire cosmos. Scientists previously detected this imprint as the Cosmic Microwave Background. It is everywhere in the sky and packs important clues about the structure of the nascent universe.

Something similar should have happened with sound, explained Daniel Eisenstein of the University of Arizona and leader of one of the studies, based on the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.

In the dark era, if you pushed on a pocket of hot gas, it would resist being compressed and bounce back.

"The whole thing sits there and rings like a bell," Eisenstein said. The thick hot soup would transmit sound waves in the same manner that air or water do. When the fog cleared, the sound waves would have remained as countless ripples of material.

Here's the neat part:

Think of a rock dropped into a pond, Eisenstein suggested. The ripples are areas where extra water is piled up. In the early cosmos, the sound ripples would have been areas where extra matter piled up, and more galaxies should have formed along these ripples than elsewhere.

"The twist is, [the extra matter represented by] the rock also helped formed galaxies," he said.

Hang on just a bit more. Since all this happened, the universe has expanded about 1,000 times. So the location of each "rock" and its associated ripple should be about 500 million light-years apart.

If this actually happened, then there ought to be more galaxies separated by that distance than by other distances. And that's exactly what the 2dF and Sloan sky surveys found -- barely.

"This last ring gets forever quieter and deeper in tone as the universe expands," said Idit Zehavi of the University of Arizona. "It is now so faint as to be detectable only by the most sensitive surveys."

The effect is subtle in another way, because the ringing cosmic bells (the rocks in our analogy) were ubiquitous. So instead of one rock tossed into the pond, "It's more like a handful of gravel," Eisenstein said. "You get overlapping ripples."

The combined discovery provides a yardstick for measuring other properties of the cosmos, said Richard Ellis, a Caltech professor involved in the 2dF study.

And the results confirm other methods that have found the universe is composed of just 4 percent regular matter (the atoms that make everything from people to clouds to stars), 25 percent dark matter (mysterious stuff that must be there but can't be seen), and the rest dark energy, an even more mysterious force that is driving the universe to expand at an ever-increasing pace.

Genesis 1:3

3 Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

Said is translated to voice and voice translated to sound waves or resonance.

The following video shows how sound waves create patterns from chaos to order. This is amazing because for a few moments brings order to a system. Therefore, reversing the Second Law of Thermodynamics for a short period of time.


Time, Space, Literature and Perspective

The Bible is written in different genres. Therefore, not all text could be read as narratives. Each book has to be read in-context. This means the type of literature, the audience at a particular time, the meaning of a story, and the meaning to one verse but the overall big picture.
For example, Many believe that Genesis is a Historical Genre. Although the narrative suggest how we came to be, Genesis is written in a poetic genre. The point of the author is not HOW the universe was created but WHY the universe was created. Many creationist and scientist try to explain through Genesis the HOW we came to be when it is just letting us know the reason WHY we were created This has let no confusion among people. When we see the difference, one can see science is discovering what God already has created.

Frame of Reference or Perspective

Britannica indicates that strictly speaking, Newton's laws of motion are valid only in a coordinate system at rest with respect to the “fixed” stars. Such a system is known as a Newtonian, or inertial reference, frame.


The word YOM in Hebrew means Period of light (as contrasted with the period of darkness), General term for time, Point of time, time period of unspecified length, A long finite span of time ( age - epoch - season). In Genesis, YOM is referring to an age-epoch-season and not day. YOM, used as a poetic genre, is a genius way to depicts the WHY we are here and not the HOW we got here.

Genesis 1:1-5
1 In the beginning God made from nothing the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was an empty waste and darkness was over the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was moving over the top of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good. He divided the light from the darkness. 5 Then God called the light day, and He called the darkness night. There was evening and there was morning, one day.


Second Law of Thermodynamics disproves Evolution Theory

What is the Second law of Thermodynamics?

According to physics.bu.edu, it says.

The second law of thermodynamics is one of the most fundamental laws of nature, having profound implications. In essence, it says this:
The second law - The level of disorder in the universe is steadily increasing. Systems tend to move from ordered behavior to more random behavior.

One implication of the second law is that heat flows spontaneously from a hotter region to a cooler region, but will not flow spontaneously the other way. This applies to anything that flows: it will naturally flow downhill rather than uphill.

If you watched a film forwards and backwards, you would almost certainly be able to tell which way was which because of the way things happen. A pendulum will gradually lose energy and come to a stop, but it doesn't pick up energy spontaneously; an ice cube melts to form a puddle, but a puddle never spontaneously transforms itself into an ice cube; a glass falling off a table might shatter when it hits the ground, but the pieces will never spontaneously jump back together to form the glass again. Many processes are irreversible, and any irreversible process increases the level of disorder. One of the most important implications of the second law is that it indicates which way time goes - time naturally flows in a way that increases disorder.

The second law also predicts the end of the universe: it implies that the universe will end in a "heat death" in which everything is at the same temperature. This is the ultimate level of disorder; if everything is at the same temperature, no work can be done, and all the energy will end up as the random motion of atoms and molecules.

Entropy

A measure of the level of disorder of a system is entropy, represented by S. Although it's difficult to measure the total entropy of a system, it's generally fairly easy to measure changes in entropy. For a thermodynamic system involved in a heat transfer of size Q at a temperature T , a change in entropy can be measured by:


The second law of thermodynamics can be stated in terms of entropy. If a reversible process occurs, there is no net change in entropy. In an irreversible process, entropy always increases, so the change in entropy is positive. The total entropy of the universe is continually increasing.



There is a strong connection between probability and entropy. This applies to thermodynamic systems like a gas in a box as well as to tossing coins. If you have four pennies, for example, the likelihood that all four will land heads up is relatively small. It is six times more likely that you'll get two heads and two tails. The two heads - two tails state is the most likely, shows the most disorder, and has the highest entropy. Four heads is less likely, has the most order, and the lowest entropy. If you tossed more coins, it would be even less likely that they'd all land heads up, and even more likely that you'd end up with close to the same number of heads as tails.

With a gas in a box, the probability that all the gas molecules are in one corner of the box at the same time is very small (for a typical box full of 1020 molecules or more, incredibly small): this is therefore a low entropy state. It is much more likely that the molecules are randomly distributed around the box, and are moving in random directions; this high disorder state is a considerably higher entropy state. The second law doesn't rule out all the molecules ending up in one corner, but it means it's far more likely that the molecules will be randomly distributed, and to move towards a random distribution from an orderly distribution, as opposed to the other way around.

What is this means?

This means in plain words that everything is not evolving but going towards destruction or chaos.

Why is this important?

First, the second law of thermodynamics shows that nothing is evolving towards order but the opposite. It disproofs that evolution cannot be. Since everything is going to chaos, evolution can't be.

Charles Darwin book The Origin of Species introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection.

If evolution moves forward from a lower order to a higher order, it does not fit the second law of thermodynamics. Charles Darwin says that evolution is going from chaos to a more orderly system. The problem is that the Second Law of Thermodynamics indicated that everything is working towards chaos. This means not moving forwards but backwards structurally.

It is important to understand that Darwin's work is a theory while the second law of thermodynamics is a law of nature.

According to www.merriam-webster.com, a theory is an idea or set of ideas that is intended to explain facts or events, an idea that is suggested or presented as possibly true but that is not known or proven to be true, the general principles or ideas that relate to a particular subject.

According to www.merriam-webster.com, a law is the whole system or set of rules.

This is important because the theory is base on unproven facts of observation during the entire experiment.

According to www.merriam-webster.com, a proof is something which shows that something else is true or correct.

According to   www.merriam-webster.com, an experiment is a scientific test in which you perform a series of actions and carefully observe their effects in order to learn about something.

While the law is a proven scientific experiment that abides to the natural presence of an state at any particular time.

Charles Darwin's observations is just a simple adaptation to an environment. This means that if one specie of bird in one island has a one type of beak and the same specie in another island has another, it does not mean that the bird stops being a bird of the same specie. It means that the specie did not change but a feature changed. A human is a human here or in China. One man might have Asian features while the other has European features, but both type of man are the same specie. There has not been any plunge proof from one specie to another. Therefore, a monkey is a monkey and a man is a man.

Second, the second law of thermodynamics indicates that chaos is driving humanity towards destruction. Therefore, the second law of thermodynamics can be apply to Morality. As time passes, the morality is moving towards chaos. This means your heart becomes callous and harden. That is why the Bible shows us to guard our hearts

Proverbs 4:23 "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it."

Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

The Second Law of Thermodynamics is also mention in the Bible. God had to explain the consequences of sin. The basic language explains the reason why everything dies.

Genesis 2:17 "But you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

Newton's First Law of Motion - Law of Inertia

Newton's first law of motion - sometimes referred to as the law of inertia. An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.


When the universe was created, it was concentrated in a singular point of energy. In a single moment, the energy exploded to give way to the universe.

The question is how the singular point of energy exploded.

In accordance with Newton's first law of motion, if that singular point of energy at rest moved into explosion; then an external force must had acted upon this singular point of energy. What was this force? Obviously, the act of exploding must had an external force to continue with the motion of creating a universe.


Every Scientist or Scholar do not have an answer to what the initial force was. But this should make you wonder about a Supreme Creator.

Genesis1:1 In the beginning God made from nothing the heavens and the earth.
