Sam Harris is about, being anti religious concerning dogma, and he’s into the “spirituality through Budhist and Hindu Meditation.” “Love, Peace, Granola and everybody do your own thing.” Like the Hindu who killed Mahatma Gandhi, no peace, no granola, only Romans 1: . He wrote A Letter To A Christian Nation including Sam Harris Quotes on Religion. One of the quotes Sam Harris on Free Will, claiming we don’t have any. I think our free will is partially dependent on programming, but people often overcome that programming. He begins his foreword on my turf and his hypocritical argument, demanding evidence, is right up my alley. I have more evidence than all the evolutionists who ever lived, provided to me by God who boasts about it’s existence. Where are the religious leaders? So here I am again pointing at center field, stepping into the batters box. Watch This! He says:
“You believe the Bible is the word of God. that Jesus is the Son of God, and that only those who place their faith in Jesus will find salvation after death. As a Christian you believe these propositions not because they make you feel good, but because you think they are true. But, before I point out some of the problems with these beliefs, I would like to acknowledge that there are many points on which you and I agree. We agree, for instance, if one of us is right, the other is wrong. The Bible is either the word of God, or it isn’t. Either Jesus offers humanity the one, true path to salvation (John 14: 6), or he does not. We agree that to be a Christian is to believe that all other faiths are mistaken, and profoundly so. If Christianity is correct, and I persist in my unbelief, I should expect to suffer the torments of hell. Worse still, I have persuaded others, and many close too me to reject the very idea of God. They too will languish in “eternal fire” (Matthew 25: 41). If the basic doctrine of Christianity is correct, I have misused my life in the worst conceivable way. I admit this without a single caveat. The fact that my continuous and public rejection of Christianity does not worry me in the least should suggest to you just how inadequate I think your reasons for being a Christian are.” Sam Harris from his book foreword in Letter To A Christian Nation.
Let’s redefine inadequate for Sam. In my own book, which I plan to edit soon due to inadequacies, in confusion caused for me by the seminarilly confused, cleared up for me by my fellow Christian, Walid Shoebat.
The hard science of statistics in the math involving specifically stated predictions and the timeline of history where they precisely land in perfect correlation at the point indicated, by the statements of God through prophets stated with a sniper’s precision, God is an archer, and with detailed specificity.
My father worked on the targeting of the Minute Man Missile enabling JFK to call Khrushchev’s bluff. I’m calling Harris’ bluff today, with a cornucopia of objective evidence, with which any reasonable judicial finders of fact would be forced to agree, as I have Ehrman, and the “turnip’s cousin”, Dr. Richard Dawkins.
These three and the rest of these skeptics are going to have to bring me a note from the math department at Stanford, Princeton and Oxford, and from the law school also. Hall Pass Please! I have brought them a note from God. The statistical evidence is as sound as Newton’s Proofs, who enabled my dad to enable JFK, take Nikita Khrushchev’s chips at the poker table.
So who am I ready to shoot? No one. I propound the evidence is all. My goal is revealing the truth. My goal is love which comes from a pure heart, a good conscience and a sincere faith, and further I agree heartily with Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles … who said many (lots of seminarilly confused) have departed from these turning instead to meaningless talk.
1 Timothy 1: 7:
“They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm.”
Sam Harris’ biggest problem is his perception of Christianity, not Christianity itself. Then also his letter i.e. book is addressed to a Christian Nation. There is no such thing. The label of Christian from God’s point of view is reserved for individuals, stated by Paul, in Romans 10: 9, 10.
My first book: “Misquoting Logic What Bart Ehrman Forgot To Tell You About The Coming Apocalypse And Your Place In It” by Chris Queen. Here we go:
Chapter One Paragraph One:
“As a mechanical engineer (BSME) this writer can tell you with absolute certainty: 1) A balloon cannot spontaneously inflate itself; 2) A ball cannot spontaneously roll uphill; and 3) Temperature cannot spontaneously increase above surrounding (ambient) temperature. These statements involve pressure, path and temperature and simply state the realities behind, the “Second Law of Thermodynamics.”
I am educated in science and that amounts to Physics of the Universe, also reduced to the micro level, toward design so as not to do something stupid like design an airplane such that it is not properly weighted and balanced and say, let the computer handle it. No mere Neuroscience or Babbelology like Dawkins. This one babbels on about evolution also. Whatever else exists only exists on the foundation of the Physics as defined by the Calculus.
I have probably solved upwards of 40,000 complicated word problems in multiple dynamic variables involving divers chemical, thermodynamic, atmospheric and strength of materials data. That sharpens the mind. Besides that, I can think. Sam Harris also thinks but incorrectly gathered the variables.
Last two paragraphs of chapter one in Misquoting Logic:
“Those, in higher education vocation, presumptively answer questions, without consideration of evidentiary support. Without them taking consideration of fact, regarding concrete laws of the universe’s construction, indicating their complete and fatal lack of actual applied intelligence. The ultimate Darwin Award! Cockaddodledooing about things impossible, the universe from an unexplained lump of mass exploding and then organizing itself against the proven laws of physics to itself create astronomy, biology, philosophy, organize the chemistry and martial properties in complex systems and the mechanisms of biological life and all leading to sentient beings who ask how can this be? Utter Illogic, without consideration the only logical explanation, this is a universe intelligently created by extraordinary intelligence and unfathomable power.
So the real question to consider, until such time as any of the laws of physics is observed as overcome, at which time this author would consider a spontaneous universe and quickly reject the notion as ILLOGICAL (based irrefutable statistical evidence), is who, blew up the balloon, moved the ball up the hill and lit the match to ignite the sun?”
My book chapter two:
Isaiah was a well educated, and politically astute prophet, who spoke and wrote in Jerusalem between 745 B.C. and 680 B.C. [we know for certain his words from before 200 B.C. are accurate to 95 % plus with the modern text per the Dead Sea Scrolls which contained all books of the Old Testament except Esther] Isaiah called Judah, of which Jerusalem was the capitol, to repentance. However, Judah, as the other Israelite tribes, refused to listen. Isaiah 46: 8-13:
“Remember this, fix it in your mind, take it to heart you rebels. Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand and I will do all that I please. From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do. Listen to me you stubborn hearted, you who are far from righteousness. I am bringing my righteousness near, it is not far away; and my salvation will not be delayed. I will grant salvation to Zion, my splendor to Israel.” (NIV)
“Is this challenge true? Does the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob tell us the end from the beginning and from ancient times what is still to come? Did the Lord tell history long before the events? It is clear to be discerned, as either absolutely true or absolutely false, by human beings, and, as coherent Communication, from the creator of humans and the Universe or not! (God himself is either the ultimate teller of all truth or the books of the Bible are written by liars or the deceived.) If, then. Hmmm. Go ahead and scoff. The Lord was making monkeys of you intellectuals, beginning long ago and he scoffs at you. Letting God who boasts himself, “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come” “… Ancient times, what is still to come.”, (NIV) speak for himself, speaks for itself. The evidence, since the Lord boasts, must be looked at for the scientifically observable FACT that it is or is not. The Lord speaks for himself. Let’s listen carefully and find out what the Lord says to us from ancient times. Or if the Bible is just a bunch of books written by zealots, Zionists, deceivers or are they prophets of the Most High? Let’s examine the facts.”
Sam wants to know if the Bible is the word of God (of course he smugly thinks its not) and if Jesus is the Son of God (and again he thinks not) but God has boasted here and we have a path to the facts called math and God was kind enough, to the many who read, to bring me to the word problems he wrote down in the prophets. Pointing at Center Field. Watch this:
Jesus in Matthew 24: 15:
“So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
Daniel 12: 11 (See I am familiar enough with the divers variables):
“From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.” … NOTE: “is set up”
This is a word problem, said the engineer. The word problem involves God boasting about future events from ancient times what is still to come, from Jesus’ perspective here.
Two issues here. Calendars in ancient times were lunar (30 days per month) until Julius Caesar. His solar calendar was 11 minutes too long. So we got the Gregorian Calendar we use now. 365.24 days per year. Conversion factor required:
360/365.24 = .9857 (conversion factor)
Now taking the 1290 days (Daniel 12: 11) as years per the words of God in Ezekiel 4. Days as years. Knowing also 583 B.C. (BCE if you like) was the year Nebuchadnezzar stopped the daily sacrifice in the Jewish Temple:
1290 x .9857 = 1271.5 So Daniel’s years now correlate with our years as to numbering days. 1271.5 – 583 = 688.5 the year the abomination of desolation was “set up.” It is A.D. or CE if you like.
John had an angel tell him about the temple, also, in Revelation 11: 1, 2
“I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. 2 But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.” (NIV)
John’s years are already solar for purposes of our math problem. 30.44 days per month.
42 x 30.44 = 1278.48 The Gentiles trampling, we now know, was ended in 1967 when the Jewish paratroops retook the temple mount and Jerusalem, in yet another war of self defense. 1967-1278.48 = 688.5 AGAIN!
Guess what was founded “SET UP” in 688 A.D. Sam Harris? Give up? Dome of the Rock.
Dr. Ehrman, Dr. Dawkins and Sam Harris need to bring me notes from the respective history departments now, too.
Now Watch this verification: Daniel 12: 11: 1,335 days. 1335 X .9857 = 1315.9
1315.9 – 583 = 732.9 A.D.
Reviewing what Daniel and Jesus said, Daniel: “Blessed is he who waits for and cometh to the thousand three hundred five and thirty days.” ; Jesus: ” —- then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.” (KJV) All matches perfectly with the Battle of Tours when Charles Martel miraculously defeated the Caliphate Muslim Army trying to invade France from Spain. Many Jews behind the Christian curtain in Europe.
The Jews who fled to Europe were far better off than the dead ones who stayed because those who built the Dome killed many of them in Israel and Judah and through the entire territory they controlled, beginning in 621 A.D. from Medina.
It took the Third Reich to drive them back to the (renamed in 70 A.D.) Palestine declaring independence and Harry Truman from Independence recognized “Israel” 11 minutes later. The U.N. chartered “Israel” the next morning. And Isaiah 66: 6-13, stated with specificity “nation born in a day” is then fulfilled.
So here we have seen Jesus pointing to (Jesus points at Center Field) Daniel’s prophesy made 600 years before he walked the earth and John from 60 years after he was crucified and rose from the dead, as the witnesses attest his prophesy fulfilled 600 years later. Three prophets speaking to the abomination of desolation to come, “set up” in 688 A.D. (CE if you like) per the math.
God’s Three Ring Circus. Three prophets, two speaking what angels told them and the Son of God knowing their words and exactly what I would find. Oh no, I did not discover this math I’m just correctly interpreting it for the Objective evidence that it is and contrasting it against God’s Boasts to provide him his glory.
In the next few days he will gain more glory, so stay tuned.
Thank you for reading my posts. I am deeply humbled to have readers around the world. I am unconcerned about acceptance among skeptics or the seminarilly confused. In agape love (the love of God) I reveal these things so those who believe can be strengthened in their belief and so those who do not yet believe may believe that Jesus is the Son of God and escape the wrath of God that is coming.
As I have said, it does not matter if I am a Zionist, God is a Zionist and this hold true for everything God has said and every bit of his stated desire will be fulfilled, including the battle of Armageddon and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it. You can escape God’s wrath, through Jesus, the Christ. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
If you have any questions please leave them here below and I will answer you. Please leave your valued comments there also. You may search my previous posts below too. I encourage you to buy and read my second book, Misquoting Calculus What Isaac Newton Tried To Tell Bart Ehrman, book trailer video providing discount code for 20% off. It is 100 pages and lays out all the math, including the statistics chart and is a great evangelism tool also laying out salvation by grace through faith in Jesus and the transformation by the Spirit of truth who dwells in all who hold faith in Jesus. Thank you again, Chris.
