No Partiality

earth heaven hope Hope Joan Winifred

There are various scriptures highlighting Hope & God’s impartiality. Reading(s) excerpted (my highlights)…

 For those called by God to the heavenly calling (Heb 3:1) to be joint heirs with Jesus Christ, there is no distinction between men and women in a spiritual sense. The apostle writes: “You are all, in fact, sons of God through your faith in Christ . . . there is neither male nor female; for you are all one person in union with Christ Jesus.” (Ga 3:26-28) These all must receive a change of nature at their resurrection, being made partakers together of “divine nature,” in which state none will be women, for there is no female sex among spirit creatures, sex being God’s means for reproduction of earthly creatures.​—2Pe 1:4. [Woman- Insight on Scriptures, Vol. 2, p. 1196]

The Bible holds out 2 Happy Futures…an Earthly Paradise…and a Heavenly Hope.  Those with a Heavenly Invitation who remain faithful will receive immortality. Those with an Earthly Invitation who remain faithful will receive everlasting life in perfection.

p.s. woman as complement/helper to man: her Earthly Dignified Role…further readings:

Before the man Adam ever asked for a human companion, God his Creator made provision. After placing Adam in the garden of Eden and giving him the law respecting the tree of the knowledge of good and bad, Jehovah said: “It is not good for the man to continue by himself. I am going to make a helper for him, as a complement of him.” (Ge 2:18) He did not oblige the man to go seeking a companion among the animals, but he brought the animals to Adam for naming. Adam was not inclined toward bestiality and was able to determine that there was no suitable companion for him among these. (Ge 2:19, 20) “Hence Jehovah God had a deep sleep fall upon the man and, while he was sleeping, he took one of his ribs and then closed up the flesh over its place. And Jehovah God proceeded to build the rib that he had taken from the man into a woman and to bring her to the man. Then the man said: ‘This is at last bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. This one will be called Woman, because from man this one was taken.’”​—Ge 2:21-23.

Position and Responsibilities. The woman, being created out of the man, was dependent upon the man for being brought into existence. Being part of the man, “one flesh” with him, and a complement and helper to him, she was subject to him as her head. She was also under the law that God had given Adam about the tree of the knowledge of good and bad. She was responsible to work for the good of the man. Together they were to have children and to exercise dominion over the animals.​—Ge 1:28; 2:24.

Evolution Pollution

appreciation Breathing-Fragile-Life conscientious-ness earth education faith God horses humility insights Joan Winifred knowledge logic love mind food science & spirituality spiritual food things i learned trees trust Truth universe wisdom

Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that cause adverse change.[1]

pollution STINKS!!…:) lol p.u. (puteo/piu) 😉

“The World Health Organization says that between 5 and 6 percent of deaths worldwide each year are a result of air pollution.” (2001/03)

How dangerous is pollution??

“Toxic levels of pollution leads annually to the early death of an estimated 7 million people, according to a new World Health Organization report.”

“It’s not just the air outdoors in polluted cities that poses a danger to public health. About 3 billion people are breathing deadly fumes from domestic cooking stoves and fires, according to the Geneva-based agency. Household air pollution caused an estimated 3.8 million deaths in 2016.” [excerpted www.bloomberg.com/news/air-pollution-kills-7-million-people-a-year-who-reports]

What/how about wearing masks i.e. surgical??

“Taiwan’s leading expert on the effects of pollution, Dr. Chan Chang-chuan, says diesel fumes are a cause of cancer.”

Dr. Chan says: “These masks are ineffective. Much of the pollution in the form of gases and particulates is so tiny that a simple mask has a low filtration rate. Besides, . . . they are not airtight. So they give a false sense of security.” [old quote excerpted Asiaweek Magazine]

FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY!!!…beware.

For me and my research…“Truth” aka True “LOVE” is no where to be found in the “theory”…(not even a theory) of evolution.  The FALSE teaching of Evolution…is a contaminant to clear, pure THINKING ABILITY!  Don’t let someone else think for You!! Investigate for Yourself. That’s what lazy/idle thinkers do…let/allow others do the thinking/mind labor/work for them…they turn over their minds/brains to the likes of Darwin and Others. Personally, i don’t care much for Mind Squatters!

Sometimes, we cannot help being adversely affected by air pollution…we may be unaware…of air quality, etc. where we happen to live. Where do our minds live??  Same with many of us regarding the bullying of evolution on our brains…since childhood, etc.  Many of us have been indoctrinated/(brain washed?) with this teaching at a young age…by chance vs. by choice.  (Public) education?? or aka (Public) Pollution?!

Spiritual Air Pollution…propaganda, demonic ideas, controlling concepts…cause changes…an unhealthy spiritual state.

Who’s squatting in Your Mind? taking up residence?  Time to kick ’em out of your house!!

Keep Your Head in the Game—and LIVE!:) Learn what True Love is and what True Love does and what True Love produces! Do your own thorough investigation!! Do your own mind work! It’s well worth the time and effort. 🙂

Check out this: my highlights

If evolution were a fact, the fossil evidence would surely reveal a gradual changing from one kind of life into another. And that would have to be the case regardless of which variation of evolutionary theory is accepted. Even scientists who believe in the more rapid changes associated with the “punctuated equilibrium” theory acknowledge that there would still have been many thousands of years during which these changes supposedly took place. So it is not reasonable to believe that there would be no need at all for linking fossils.

Also, if evolution were founded in fact, the fossil record would be expected to reveal beginnings of new structures in living things. There should be at least some fossils with developing arms, legs, wings, eyes, and other bones and organs. For instance, there should be fish fins changing into amphibian legs with feet and toes, and gills changing into lungs. There should be reptiles with front limbs changing into bird wings, back limbs changing into legs with claws, scales changing into feathers, and mouths changing into horny beaks.

In this regard the British journal New Scientist says of the theory: “It predicts that a complete fossil record would consist of lineages of organisms showing gradual change continuously over long periods of time.”⁠As Darwin himself asserted: “The number of intermediate varieties, which have formerly existed, [must] be truly enormous.”5

7. What should the fossil record show if the Genesis creation account is factual?

On the other hand, if the Genesis creation account is factual, then the fossil record would not show one type of life turning into another. It would reflect the Genesis statement that each different type of living thing would reproduce only “according to its kind.” (Genesis 1:11, 12,21, 24, 25) Also, if living things came into being by an act of creation, there would be no partial, unfinished bones or organs in the fossil record. All fossils would be complete and highly complex, as living things are today.

8. If living things were created, what else should the fossil record show?

In addition, if living things were created, they would be expected to appear suddenly in the fossil record, unconnected to anything before them. And if this was found to be true, what then? Darwin frankly admitted: “If numerous species . . . have really started into life at once, the fact would be fatal to the theory of evolution.”⁠6

How Complete Is the Record?

9. What did Darwin say about the evidence in his day?

However, is the fossil record complete enough for a fair test of whether it is creation or evolution that finds support? Over a century ago, Darwin did not think so. What was “wrong” with the fossil record in his time? It did not contain the transitional links required to support his theory. This situation caused him to say: “Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely-graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and serious objection which can be urged against the theory.”7

10. What other disappointment did Darwin mention?

10 The fossil record in Darwin’s day proved disappointing to him in another way. He explained: “The abrupt manner in which whole groups of species suddenly appear in certain formations has been urged by several paleontologists . . . as a fatal objection to the belief in the transmutation of species.” He added: “There is another and allied difficulty, which is much more serious. I allude to the manner in which species belonging to several of the main divisions of the animal kingdom suddenly appear in the lowest known fossiliferous rocks. . . . The case at present must remain inexplicable; and may be truly urged as a valid argument against the [evolutionary] views here entertained.”⁠8

11. How did Darwin attempt to explain the difficulties?

11 Darwin attempted to explain these huge problems by attacking the fossil record. He said: “I look at the geological record as a history of the world imperfectly kept, . . . imperfect to an extreme degree.”⁠It was assumed by him and others that as time passed the missing fossil links surely would be found.

12. How extensive is the fossil record now?

12 Now, after well over a century of extensive digging, vast numbers of fossils have been unearthed. Is the record still so “imperfect”? The book Processes of Organic Evolution comments: “The record of past forms of life is now extensive and is constantly increasing in richness as paleontologists find, describe, and compare new fossils.”10 And Smithsonian Institution scientist Porter Kier adds: “There are a hundred million fossils, all catalogued and identified, in museums around the world.”⁠11 Hence, A Guide to Earth History declares: “By the aid of fossils palaeontologists can now give us an excellent picture of the life of past ages.”12

13, 14. Why have evolutionists been disappointed by the enlarged fossil evidence?

13 After all this time, and the assembling of millions of fossils, what does the record now say? Evolutionist Steven Stanley states that these fossils “reveal new and surprising things about our biological origins.”⁠13 The book A View of Life, written by three evolutionists, adds: “The fossil record is full of trends that paleontologists have been unable to explain.”⁠14 What is it that these evolutionary scientists have found to be so “surprising” and are “unable to explain”?

14 What has confounded such scientists is the fact that the massive fossil evidence now available reveals the very same thing that it did in Darwin’s day: Basic kinds of living things appeared suddenly and did not change appreciably for long periods of time. No transitional links between one major kind of living thing and another have ever been found. So what the fossil record says is just the opposite of what was expected.

15. What conclusion did a botanist draw from his study of the fossil record?

15 Swedish botanist Heribert Nilsson described the situation this way, after 40 years of his own research: “It is not even possible to make a caricature of an evolution out of palaeobiological facts. The fossil material is now so complete that . . . the lack of transitional series cannot be explained as due to the scarcity of material. The deficiencies are real, they will never be filled.”15

lol…laughable! the irony of evolution lacking any fossil…fuel…no true substance/energy/tractionyet, it’s a very dangerous/toxic gas…false ideology! It has contaminated, shaped and molded/moved the minds of millions…and for some…alienating them from the TRUTH about true source of love & life…the True God/Creator of Life–Yahweh!

Some of us don’t like having any authority in life…or having to answer to a Higher Power…God.  Some don’t like accountability.  They only want to answer to themselves.

And…Some bow/submit to false ideas/false gods, etc….aka let these dictate/control their thinking/lives. Personally, i don’t bow/worship imposter gods…female or male. Or so-called teachings of “higher” education…that don’t elevate my thinking or living…but rather inflate head/ego instead.

No transitional features found. (period)

28. Have transitional forms of bones and organs ever been found?

28 Another difficulty for evolution is the fact that nowhere in the fossil record are found partially formed bones or organs that could be taken for the beginning of a new feature. For instance, there are fossils of various types of flying creatures​—birds, bats, extinct pterodactyls. According to evolutionary theory, they must have evolved from transitional ancestors. But none of those transitional forms have been found. There is not a hint of them. Are there any fossils of giraffes with necks two thirds or three quarters as long as at present? Are there any fossils of birds evolving a beak from a reptile jaw? Is there any fossil evidence of fish developing an amphibian pelvis, or of fish fins turning into amphibian legs, feet and toes? The fact is, looking for such developing features in the fossil record has proved to be a fruitless quest.

A whiff? a hint? Fruitless!…yet—rotten fruitage—produced, eh? Lots of “stinky” “dirty” money made off of lies! (including lie of evolution!)  Lies are big business…(so is keeping people sick).  Sorry, but i don’t eat rotten nor rotting fruit…nor buy it for food. Do You?!

The New Evolutionary Timetable acknowledges, “the fossil record does not convincingly document a single transition from one species to another. Furthermore, species lasted for astoundingly long periods of time.”33​—Italics added. (my highlight)

30. What does an extensive study confirm?

30 This agrees with the extensive study made by the Geological Society of London and the Palaeontological Association of England. Professor of natural science John N. Moore reported on the results: “Some 120 scientists, all specialists, prepared 30 chapters in a monumental work of over 800 pages to present the fossil record for plants and animals divided into about 2,500 groups. . . . Each major form or kind of plant and animal is shown to have a separate and distinct history from all the other forms or kinds! Groups of both plants and animals appear suddenly in the fossil record. . . . Whales, bats, horses, primates, elephants, hares, squirrels, etc., all are as distinct at their first appearance as they are now. There is not a trace of a common ancestor, much less a link with any reptile, the supposed progenitor.” Moore added: “No transitional forms have been found in the fossil record very probably because no transitional forms exist in fossil stage at all. Very likely, transitions between animal kinds and/​or transitions between plant kinds have never occurred.”⁠34

31. Does the fossil record say something different now from what it said in Darwin’s day?

31 Thus, what was true in Darwin’s day is just as true today. The evidence of the fossil record is still as zoologist D’Arcy Thompson said some years ago in his book On Growth and Form: “Darwinian evolution has not taught us how birds descend from reptiles, mammals from earlier quadrupeds, quadrupeds from fishes, nor vertebrates from the invertebrate stock. . . . to seek for stepping-stones across the gaps between is to seek in vain, for ever.”⁠35

But what about horses, i LOVE horses…..

As The World Book Encyclopedia states: “Horses are among the best-documented examples of evolutionary development.”⁠36Illustrations of this begin with a very small animal and end with the large horse of today. But does the fossil evidence really support this?

33. Does the fossil evidence really support evolution of the horse?

33 The Encyclopædia Britannica comments: “The evolution of the horse was never in a straight line.”⁠37 In other words, nowhere does the fossil evidence show a gradual development from the small animal to the large horse. Evolutionist Hitching says of this foremost evolutionary model: “Once portrayed as simple and direct, it is now so complicated that accepting one version rather than another is more a matter of faith than rational choice. Eohippus, supposedly the earliest horse, and said by experts to be long extinct and known to us only through fossils, may in fact be alive and well and not a horse at all​—a shy, fox-sized animal called a daman that darts about in the African bush.”⁠38

34, 35. (a) Why do some now question the place of Eohippus? (b) Have any evolutionary ancestors been found for the varieties of fossil horses?

34 Placing little Eohippus as the ancestor of the horse strains the imagination, especially in view of what The New Evolutionary Timetable says: “It was widely assumed that [Eohippus] had slowly but persistently turned into a more fully equine animal.” But do the facts support this assumption? “The fossil species of [Eohippus] show little evidence of evolutionary modification,” answers the book. It thus concedes, regarding the fossil record: “It fails to document the full history of the horse family.”39

35 So, some scientists now say that little Eohippus never was a type of horse or an ancestor of one. And each type of fossil put into the horse line showed remarkable stability, with no transitional forms between it and others that were thought to be evolutionary ancestors. Nor should it be surprising that there are fossils of horses of different sizes and shapes. Even today, horses vary from very small ponies to large plow horses. All are varieties within the horse family.

Time for joanie to shut up…YAY! (You may say;))

When we let the fossil record speak, its testimony is not evolution-oriented. Instead, the testimony of the fossil record is creation-oriented. It shows that many different kinds of living things suddenly appeared. While there was great variety within each kind, these had no links to evolutionary ancestors before them. Nor did they have any evolutionary links to different kinds of living things that came after them. Various kinds of living things persisted with little change for long periods of time before some of them became extinct, while others survive down to this day.

37. How does an evolutionist acknowledge this?

37 “The concept of evolution cannot be considered a strong scientific explanation for the presence of the diverse forms of life,” concludes evolutionist Edmund Samuel in his book Order: In Life. Why not? He adds: “No fine analysis of biogeographic distribution or of the fossil record can directly support evolution.”⁠40

NO! FOSSIL EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT CONCEPT OF EVOLUTION!

The above-excerpted reading…promotes “impartial” inquiry! am i an impartial investigator??

As zoologist Coffin stated: “To secular scientists, the fossils, evidences of the life of the past, constitute the ultimate and final court of appeal, because the fossil record is the only authentic history of life available to science. If this fossil history does not agree with evolutionary theory​—and we have seen that it does not—​what does it teach? It tells us that plants and animals were created in their basic forms. The basic facts of the fossil record support creation, not evolution.”⁠41

Wow! even Sagan sees…”evidence” of design/designer:)

Astronomer Carl Sagan candidly acknowledged in his book Cosmos: “The fossil evidence could be consistent with the idea of a Great Designer.”⁠42

{(Regarding concept of Evolution…i see evidence of a designer of a dastardly-deceptive-design…of imagination/fiction.)}

Is it time to take out the trash?? Some things are worth recycling; other things are not!

An impartial inquiry (including touchy topics) is like…Breathing Fresh, Clean, Pure Air…it’s good for Brains. 🙂

Happy & Hopeful to read the following in my local paper…as a resident recycler of FL, specifically Charlotte County: “County exceeds state recycling mandate early” by Ray Sandrock–excerpted article:

“We have received the final approved and certified 2017 recycling numbers from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Charlotte County achieved 75.2 percent in traditional recycling, which means we have exceeded the state-mandated 75 percent recycling rate by 2020 three years early. State recycling rankings will be released next month. For 2016, the county was ranked No. 1, with a 72.9 percent traditional recycling rate. Thank you to all our seasonal visitors and business community: Your diligence in your household and commercial recycling significantly contributed to our county’s success.” (The Sun, Wednesday, May 30, 2018.)(caught a typo too;)

Anyway…PLEASE DEAR READER CONTINUE IN YOUR DAILY EFFORTS TO RECYCLE & REUSE…a THANK YOU & WOO-HOO to YOU!!:)
