The length of a day was set on day one! Talmud Chagiga 12A quotes R' Yehudah quoting Rav. Creation was 5765 current years ago in six 24-hour days. Sabbath observance testifies to this..27 All factual evidence can be reconciled with this simple Torah understanding, premised on a complex creation and a change in atmosphere.
Old universe theory is based on faulty premises. It is inconsistent with science and Torah. Once a scientist denies the Creator he is forced to overstate the age of the universe. If it turns out the Creator maintained a life-supporting atmosphere for millions of years it would also be praise worthy. Where to draw the line between metaphor and fact in Torah text without guidance from Chazal is reckless. Like a prudent investor who finally capitulated to the hype and bought the NASDAQ at 5,000 is a person of faith now giving credence to ‘old universe’ theories.
Like Abraham the first contrarian, my father, Thomas W. Pearlman Esq. thought independently and overcame adversity to build Torah education and practice from Providence. By 8th grade biology that education made it clear secular humanism fails to explain the source of physical matter. Psychological blocks sustain faulty science notions blurring the path to world peace as revealed in Torah.
As a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) I have to overcome similar barriers to convince people to buy low and sell high. Actual past recommendations followed did extremely well. Surpassing established financial experts gave me confidence to question conventional science.
It is one thing to call a market a buy or sell. One needs to be able to bring the thought to fruition. This CTA has over 25 years of fully discretionary decision making experience in multiple futures markets. Using proprietary money, learning from mistakes, places me in a unique position to help others prosper in this environment. A secular bull market recently began in commodities while financial markets face rising interest rates and a sustained decline.
The risk of a sustained drop in the US$, bonds and equities is real. As Joseph advised prepare during years of plenty to survive and prosper pending lean years. Now is the time to establish a well positioned managed futures account. To contact this CTA memo: RMPCTA@aol.com. Experts often tout overvalued assets and shun good value. We will see the same applies in the world of beliefs. Awareness of the recent creation should enhance appreciation of our selves, the Creator, His Torah, Sabbath, and Israel.
1) Hashem is the One and Only Creator:
Avraham determined Hashem is continually managing, sustaining and willing the existence of the universe. There is one Creator. Einstein's success was premised on this. Intelligent design is consistent throughout the universe proving one common creator. One can see wisdom in about anything and everything in 'The Amazing World we live in'.[i] The way things interrelate, and similar features in different species, like eyes above a nose then mouth, or wings on birds, pterosaurs, bats, and insects (that would not have evolved even once by chance),11 all prove one common creator. Protons, nucleons, electrons or the strands of vibrating energy that compose all matter, prove one common creator. All forms of life having the same type of genetic code prove a common creator.2 Diversity in life and styles in the Bible prove the Creator is not limited to any mode. Until a unified theory is disseminated that reveals the complete truth no one name has been adequate to describe Hashem.13 The Creator is not limited by His creation. See commentary on Maimonides 13 principals of Jewish faith.
2) Yesh MeAin:
Hashem created the entire physical universe from absolute nothing (Nahmanides). In six days Hashem organized creation from everything from which he had created on day one.22 The 'Secular Myth'23 of the Big Bang Theory touches on this truth and that of a sudden creation. Science must leave to blind faith the singularities of the initial primordial matter and start of life.2 The source of the strong and weak nuclear forces, electromagnetic and gravitational forces, inflationary epoch, etc. also can only be reasonably attributed to Hashem.2 Hashem 'provided us water from a flint stone'.24.1 If all atoms or strands of energy stopped what would remain? The Torah is the blueprint of creation. Hashem used the 22 letters of the Aleph Bet,25 in ten utterances, to form creation. To help understand consider voice recognition software, that computer systems use just 2 digits (Binary), and all elements are a combination of protons, neutrons and electrons composed of strands of vibrating energy.
3) Moses and Torah are True, the Authentic Revelation of Divine Will:
No other ancient document contains details of creation only the Creator would know, all supported by the latest scientific fact.2 Hebrew was the original numerical system and base language.31 Aramaic may have been used for secular purposes. The factual archaeological record is consistent with the entire Biblical account. In 2448 the exodus from Egypt and revelation of Torah by Sinai was witnessed by millions of Jews on a prophetic level. We 'saw the thunder' Ex.20:15 people can see sound and hear color.33 No comparable claim stands of a direct and public revelation by the Creator.34 The soul of every Jew was present at revelation. The Jews were not the first or even the majority of slaves and workers in Egypt. Moshe assisted millions of gentiles who originated from around the world to leave Egypt to attest about Hashem on their return home.35 Joshua explained the Torah in 70 languages. This may explain how, when and where all other nations as mentioned in the Medrash rejected an offer of the entire Torah. Than for many years the Divine presence dwelt in the Miskon37 and its successor Solomon’s Temple. Torah learning, understanding and teaching remain Jews primary national priority. The unbroken ‘Messorah’ tradition continues to this day. Ancient history and current events, such as the massive return of Jews to Israel, the greening of the land, and increasing Torah observance and study, confirm Hashem is reliable, rules and Torah true.
4) The Commandments:
The 'Ten Commandments (Dibrot)' contain 13 Mitzvoth (commands). They are part of and reflect 248 positive and 365 negative Jewish obligations. Some apply to Cohanim, Levites, Parents, Women, Farmers in Israel, and the Holy Temple. There are 7 capital groups of obligations for non-Jews; many overlap the 10 commandments. Like all commandments, when performing it is preferable to have in mind you are acting as willed by the Creator.
The 13 rules of Rabbi Ishmael teach consistent, accurate interpretation. Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all predicated on the 5 books of Moses. Any later text that contradicts must be acknowledged as erroneous or it undermines that denomination.
The written Torah is logically impossible to understand entirely without Oral Torah (Talmud). The revelation at Sinai included both the oral and written Torah, the basis for Torah commentary by Chazal. The Talmud expounds the Scriptures words and the unelaborated details of its laws. That's how Jews know 'between the eyes' is above the forehead and the construction of Tefillin. Loss of use and work, medical, pain, and embarrassment are the five types of financial compensation an 'eye for an eye' means. Not to cook, eat, or benefit from mixing milk and meat is represented by ‘Not to cook a kid goat in its mother’s milk’ being repeated 3 times. Seven clouds of glory as repeated 7 times.
The first tablet deals with our connection to the Creator. Honoring parents includes our common parent Hashem. The Jews obligation to observe Sabbath takes precedence as even our parents are bound to respect the parent of all, Hashem. The second tablet covers potentially capital crimes between man and man. Murder is one prohibition. Not to steal refers to kidnapping. Monetary theft is covered elsewhere. The proper warning or punishment for each prohibition is also spelled out later. The Creator spoke to the myriad of Jews assembled the first two Dibrot. Hashem wrote the first two tablets whose pieces were placed in the ark with the second set inscribed by Moshe.
No comparable revelation, 'eternal covenant', 'nothing new under the sun', time elapsed, ‘Moses being the greatest Jewish prophet including Messiah’, ‘The Creator not being a mortal that changes his mind’, are basis for Jewish law not changing an established precedent unless support is found within established guidelines from earlier eras.
Some have customs that overlap with Jewish ones from the seven Noahide commandments, Abraham’s followers, the mixed multitude from the Exodus, the lost ten tribes, contact with Jews or reading scriptures. Offspring of a Jewess are Jewish. Others require conversion conforming to Jewish law to expand into the covenant of the Children of Israel. This requires allegiance not only to Hashem but also to the Nation of Israel. Who is a Jew? My father41 uses an analogy: citizenship/ constitution to Jew/ Torah. One is born in or sworn in, and can't pick and choose only the statutes liked. A general principal is not reducing sanctity. Once Jewish there is no going back. To do so is a gross violation of multiple covenants and is tantamount to suicide.42
Decisions from 'the highest court' come with more evidence, witnesses and documentation than any statutes or law on earth. The proof is beyond a reasonable doubt. It is our duty to abide by the Creators judgments as revealed in the Torah. Accept willingly the ‘Yolk of Heaven’ unlike a burden it provides positive direction.13
All the Children of Israel accepted unconditional observance of the Torah, understanding it is a lifelong endeavor. 'Serve Hashem with satisfaction'. 'Being satisfied with your position is real wealth'. Jews don't belittle the Creator by feeling like a ‘grasshopper’ in the shadow of adversity. Moshe was the most humble person yet he feared only Hashem. Don't equivocate right with wrong. Silence can be acquiescence.
The Bible is accessible, the number one all time best seller. An excuse of ignorance of the law is limited to ones inability to comply with and learn the applicable laws. Repeating a sin 3 times will desensitize you; leading to denial or faulty rationalization.
We benefit from cumulative knowledge.44 There is no need for the Creator to be repetitive. Our ancestors of greater intelligence would have surpassed tomorrow's knowledge and technology long ago, had Hashem allowed it. The expulsion from Gan Eden, dispersion from Babel, burning of scrolls in Alexandria, disruptions to Torah study, etc. obstructed knowledge of the secrets of life. The 4-letter name of Hashem tells that he was, is and always will be. The entire physical universe is a finite tiny fraction of his power; the distant sun a tiny fraction of that. Rabbi Yehoshua said if you couldn’t gaze at one of Hashem’s ministers (the mid-day sun) than you sure are not capable of gazing at Hashem directly.78 While living not even Moshe could look directly at Hashem (Exodus 33:20). A single atom contains the energy to destroy a city. How many atoms are in the universe? Can you even count the atoms in front of you now? With retrospect, through his works, deeds, and Torah Revelation we can know our father and king, Hashem. Dreams and Sabbath are a hint of the afterlife. The more we refine our soul now the greater capacity it will have to experience the greatness of Hashem in the future. Public speculation of pre Creation unjustly limits Hashem to our limited understanding. Misunderstanding is inevitable if Creation delved into publicly. Like the special Names of Hashem, revelation of the powers invested in creation should only be taught to a qualified student.
The acts of our fathers are signs for the children. History repeats itself. Other civilizations cover up their shortcomings. In the rare instances Jews sinned the Torah records it so we can learn from our mistakes. With love the Creator directed Jews to observe Sabbath. Keeping the Sabbath attests that Hashem created the physical universe from nil in six days. One resource is Torah Forum at Torah.org.
5) Free Will, Reward and Punishment:
Hashem could have created us perfect as angels. This would take away our free will if to be aware of Hashem, and the rewards of 'choosing life' when fulfilling our responsibilities. If a maze book is already filled in the satisfaction of accomplishment is diminished. 'According to the effort is the reward' (Mishna Avot). Why reward or blame a being with no free will? We do have free will. Cain could have overcome his tendency (Gen 4:7). Investments look their worst at the low and best at the high valuations. The largest profits go to those who sell the high and buy the low. Those who support Torah study and practice when it is most subject to ridicule will reap the greatest rewards.
To prepare, exercise care, or worry is to admit free will (Kuzari).
Hashem is close, ‘observing through the windows, peering through the lattices.’53 Yet as defiant blind orphans so many live. You can’t run or hide from the power of Hashem whose gifts are countless. Keep ‘open your eyes’54 and be it out of fear or love and you will not intentionally sin. Human senses are limited otherwise we would always be aware of Hashem.
'In every generation we are tested with a false Messiah' sometimes it can be a false belief like random evolution from simple to complex. Tests not passed carry over to future generations. In lecture tapes 'the wicked make us great' and 'the Iron Furnace of Egypt' R' Avigdor Miller explains how adversity can refine and elevate us. Avraham used Nimrod, Jacob had Esau, Joseph 'stood firm', Moshe overcame Balaam, David slew Goliath and Mordechai wouldn't bend. 'In every generation they rise to destroy us but Hashem rescues us', Hagadah. 'Others come with excellent weapons and stumble; we call on Hashem and triumph'. No one or thing is independent of the Creator. The most concerted efforts and best technology from Babel to National Socialism can't withstand the will of Hashem. While a human court is not to punish a person for the sin of their parent or child, regret the transgression of the past three generations or be accountable by Hashem. A Parents choice affects their children. People who care only about their children must also behave. 'Woe to the wicked and their neighbor' in the exile we may need the merit of a special command like the Pascal Lamb in Egypt to protect us from a general destruction about us. History seems to repeat itself like the 10 plagues, with cycles of arrogance warnings, destruction, tears, and respite. 'A negative decree can be voided with prayer, repentance and charity'. Wicked leaders tolerated by the masses may have their hearts hardened as Pharaoh. Like the German double cross of Russia leading to its own devastation. Today the Arab leaders must have very heavy hearts not to embrace Israel's peace overtures as the Jewish redemption unfolds. Jews are a family responsible for one another and should in a loving way correct the laggard. Merit of the righteous endures a 'thousand generations'. Respecting the law of the Land is commanded.
Many gentiles have contempt for Jews who try to be like everyone else. Sincere gentiles respect Jewish observance. ‘The nations are blessed via the Sons of Jacob’. By being like a big brother supportive of Judaism the USA has been blessed to become the top world power. The connection is sometimes obvious. Chaim Solomon funded the revolutionary war, a fight for independence that was inspired by the Exodus from Egypt. Israel provided the countermeasures to USSR armaments to end the cold war. Exposing the cover-up and setting back Iraq’s nuclear or chemical program pre gulf war, credit Israel and Jonathan Pollard. Bad economic policy coincides with policies that compromise Greater Israel.
Those who love Jews wouldn't dare abet their assimilation. Those who undermine Hashem’s chosen as the Nachash in Gan Eden, Midian in (Numbers 25:17), and others who have tried throughout history, are condemned.58 The good of the wicked is compensated in this world. On expiration they face shame, distress and purgatory or erasure. Each generation atones for or absorbs some punishment for the golden calf. Jews (who malpractice) may be the root of many world problems, but using a stick to hit Jews gets the user in worse trouble. Better to positively help direct the Jew to return to compliance.
The Creator administers reward and punishment ‘measure for measure’.
Miriam who attended Moshe by the water merited a well of water for Israel in the wilderness. We recall daily another lesson we also learn from Miriam, who underestimated the superiority of Moshe’s prophecy. Inappropriate speech that would drive people apart can have an atonement of being set apart.58.2 Until experiencing the afterlife no one fully comprehends the suffering of the righteous. By not releasing the adversarial angel till it blessed him Jacob insured Israel would gain after enduring suffering.58.4
To understand Hashem tracking our deeds contemplate wireless, computer and spy technology. A blood hound can tell where we have been by detecting dead cells we trail. Surely our Creator has the power, as a parent the concern, as our king the right, to monitor our thoughts and actions. To understand Revival of the dead consider DNA and cloning. The Talmud makes the logical argument it is easier to make a copy then start from scratch.
'All is for the good' we bless Hashem for both the good and the seemingly bad. Both good and evil inclinations can be trained to serve Hashem. There is no power independent of Hashem. Nature and Angels including Satan are just agents and messengers existing by the will of Hashem. In reality Hashem could have done Creation in an instant with one utterance. Mishna Avot tells us in order to increase our opportunity for reward Hashem used ten utterances over six days.
6) Human Life is Sacred:
'The entire physical universe was created for the righteous person'. ‘Saving one life as if you preserved the universe’ murder is equated to destroying the universe. A good parent values their child above all other wealth. The Creator is our father. In Yona 4:6 – 4:10 Hashem demonstrates all mankind is precious. We are all descendents of Adam.
'Not in the heavens...' Torah was received and accepted right here on Earth. Only Mankind created with a soul 'in the image of Hashem' can fulfill the Torah. Not relevant to angels are prohibitions such as idol worship, murder and adultery. While one moment of afterlife basking in the Creator’s greatness exceeds all the pleasures of this world, one good deed exceeds all we can accomplish there. Be on the right team. 'It is better to be the tail of a lion than head of a fox' Mishna Avot. When there is no one else we have to step up. It is within our capacity to live responsibly. We are bidden to emulate the attributes of Hashem: mercy, grace, patience, kindness, truth etc., as we observe his commandments. Parent's love for their children can help one understand how.
Viewing our life on Earth as lucky or one of many civilizations on distant planets is like a spoiled child who does not appreciate their parent's gifts and sacrifice. Better an idol worshipper than an atheist. An idol worshipper can be grateful for being created, and acknowledges a superior being. Yet he is equated with a murderer. Murderers deny the sanctity of life and defy Hashem. So Hammas and Hezbollah are like associations of idol worshippers. The afterlife is learned from the written torah. It helps one understand when the good suffer. Deniers lose their share of the afterlife, as punishment for false testimony is 'as they misled'.
Care for the body at least as much as material wealth entrusted to you. Self-inflicted injury is one practice of idol worshippers62 . Suicide will only increase ones suffering. ‘Choose life’ we are to ‘live’ by the commandments. Only in certain extreme conditions is death mandated. Many have died upright and sanctified the name of Hashem rather then be forced to commit murder, adultery, or foreign worship. Check with an expert Rabbi before being in those situations. Help your fellow man. Preserve the environment. Unless threatening the mother's life protect the sanctity of a fetus. Potential life and corpses should be treated with respect. Extraneous contact with bones is another idolatrous practice and source of defilement. Mikvah (Ritual immersion) separates us from death.
7) Israel is on Jewish Land!
AMEN = Kel Melech Neeman, Hashem is the reliable sovereign. The Creator of everything from nothing was fully entitled to designate the land in perpetuity and enforce its restoration. He is bound to keep his promise to the Jewish people. Jews in turn can't disown the Promised Land. Apportioned by the Creator by family via Joshua it reverted to the nearest Jewish relation each 50th ‘Jubilee’ year. No subsequent occupying power had right to deed the land. When reestablished the Sanhedrin will determine rights to the land.
The majority of the 613 Commandments Jews are obligated to observe are linked to the land of Israel and the restored Holy Temple. Non-Jews can fulfill all their obligations everywhere else.
No consistently applied international law prevents Israel from annexing the restored Jewish lands of Judea Samaria and Gaza. ‘Don’t follow a majority for evil’. The UN is making a big mistake by pressuring Israel, 'Through the Jewish People the nations of the world are blessed'. The Holy Temples windows provided divine light to the world. Soon the final verses of Deuteronomy 32:40-43 will be fulfilled.
A reason the Bible begins with creation is to entitle the entire Promised Land to the Children of Israel, Rashi. Ishmael was given Seir. Avraham sent away his other children with gifts to eastern lands as only Israel was deeded the Holy Land. Astute Christians have acknowledged the special covenant between the Creator and Jews remains intact. That the Creator granted Israel to the Jews is even admitted by the Koran. Relinquishing any part of the land casts doubt on claims to the balance. Would real Jews discard their birthright? True believers will back Jewish Israel.72 Until Israel accepts Jewish law we will not know how many of its neighbors are sincere.
The ‘occupied east bank’ Jordan, as well as Syria and southern Lebanon occupy 95% of Jewish mandate lands. Not one was duly authorized to take these lands. If not for the cease fire each time Hashem gave Israel the upper hand the entire promised land would be complete and at peace. How many wars till we realize this? If they attack successfully they will kill you and take yours, so turnabout is fair and a deterrent to other bad people. Now the Elon plan for peace can work. Jews who want to live east of the Jordan get Israeli citizenship and Arabs living on land controlled by Israel get Jordanian citizenship.
Those who follow Hashem are fearless. A basic requirement of Jewish soldiers should be Torah study and observance. Torah study is a national service that protects a nation as much as an army. Joshua’s army rarely suffered a casualty. Even the non-pious King Ahab merited his army of 7,000 righteous to slay over 220,000 assailants in successive victories.
Involving the USA as a mediator, monitor, or surrogate defender etc. is the mistake the Hashmonaim made with Rome and Bar-Kochba with other foreigners. Aside from neutralizing Israel’s staunchest backer it can backfire if material interests like oil pervert political decisions. The exile for Jews may continue till we free ourselves from foreign practice and dependence. We are also admonished not to make treaties with peoples inhabiting our land. 'Yisroel relies on Hashem' and is 'a nation that dwells apart'.
Avraham conquered the four kings east of Damascus.
Isaac never left the Holy Land and was in Gaza (Gen. 26: 1-2).
Jacob set a marker Lavan, from Padan Aram in Turkey, vowed to respect.
Moshe conquered The Bashan from Og.
King David restored lost lands around Damascus.
Ben-Hadad offered to restore control of Damascus to King Ahab.77 In ’67 one hundred 19 year cycles after Gamla fell, the Golan reverted to Israel. This other 6 day miracle is known as the 6 day war. North of the Golan has been a Jewish homeland for a thousand years longer than the occupying Syrian states existence. If war erupts a peaceful border should be set at Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
Just as enabling the wicked is like cultivating cancer, compassion for the enemy only leads to innocent bloodshed. A core will fight whenever they detect weakness until Israel is no more. 'If someone comes to murder you kill them first'. Every decisive victory in Tanach is followed by long or eternal periods of peace with the defeated enemy. Releasing captured enemies supports future assaults. Restore the death penalty for terrorists dedicated to Jewish Israel’s destruction. Revoke citizenship from those who don’t support the Jewish nature of Israel.
The PA so called ‘Palestine Authority’ should be renamed ‘Practicing Amelek’. It was thought for a time that Amelek was finally destroyed during Purim. When Non Jewish occupants of the land protested the restoring of the Holy Temple it was determined Amelek persist.78 Like Amelek the PA is strongly opposed to the restored Holy Temple, were the first to attack after Israel’s miraculous delivery, and embrace death to undermine the Jews covenant. The Canaanite tribes were condemned due to idol worship, child sacrifice being the ultimate type. The Pals have had a national policy encouraging child sacrifice.
The lesson of ‘never again’ is we can’t prevail against the Creator.
The Chosen Nation is blossoming at home, the third Reich no more. Do not fail to head this message Good citizen do not let our leaders ignore this lesson. Zechariah 14:2 describes the plague awaiting those who will be led against a vilified Jewish Israel.
Not only is a murderer compared to an idol worshipper, people who hate Jews by definition hate G-d. When Israel instates leaders who practice Jewish faith it will open the eyes of masses of sincere Arabs to fight terror and back Jewish Israel.
The peaceful solution is a population and property exchange of remaining Arabs, who recognize Jewish national rights but want more than civil rights, with Jews who fled from or were murdered in Arab nations. With the restoration of the Jewish population, and resulting sanctification of the land, it will be time to rebuild the Holy Temple. Then knowledge, awareness of the Creator, and peace will fill the world. Visit www.Israelnationalnews.Com for accurate information.
8) Darwinism is false.
Science often bases its dating and conclusions based on the erroneous assumptions that there has been a steady rate of mutations and those things randomly evolved from simple to complex over long periods of time. These assumptions have been totally discredited132. It is a falling house of cards. Like a burst financial bubble with those paralyzed investors still clinging on to what will soon be worthless paper hoping for a bounce back. The truth evolutionists mix in is the approximate order of creation in Genesis. It doesn't impress me to have billions of bits of data that may confirm one theory when the same bits plus trillions more confirm another.
Widely accepted secular and pagan beliefs proven wrong such as 'the Universe always existed', 'the earth is flat', the Neoplatonic theory, and Darwinism obscured the truth for prolonged periods. 'What happened to our forefathers is a lesson for us' Just as Joseph was accused by the guilty party so have our traditions been ridiculed by those whose ideas are deserving of ridicule. The modern era error of Darwinism is the primary 'fallacy of the mind of man that denies reason' and 'opiate of the masses' it is 'a crucial plank... of western thought'.
‘Humans have a tendency to settle comfortably into conventional wisdom- which is often the biggest obstacle in the path to scientific truth.’
'The beginning of wisdom is awareness of Hashem’. This with life experience makes the elderly wise. If our soul serves our body we easily delude ourselves. Wisdom preceding fear of sin or exceeding good deeds won’t endure.1.2 Cognitive dissonance permeates the scientific and financial communities. Concern and humility lead to truth.
Like a lie the more truth mixed into a theory and distant its contentions the harder to disprove. Darwin's simple theory was repeatedly contradicted. As more fossils are found they prove a top to bottom diversification of life, not the gradual bottom up called for. Non existent missing links is only one terminal fault. Advances in technology have magnified the inherent conflict between natural selection and the small steps needed for evolution. ‘Many cellular systems are to “irreducibly complex” for evolution to work132.. Convoluted layers of complex alibis were heaped on to cover up faults. The secular assumption is that every min evolved from one. There should be abundant proven cases if true. There is not one proven case of one min evolving into another.132 The laws of increasing entropy means things go toward chaos, so organic compounds are much more likely to disintegrate than form.2 Fully developed life forms appear suddenly. Consider Stasis, life forms remain stable being the rule not exception.133 Intelligent design and the functional integrity of nature are also cause to thank Hashem.
Scientists should use an inter-disciplinary approach. When you don't look at the whole picture it is easy to take findings out of context. A Lubavitch Rebbi letter about Age of world says you can't extrapolate a small range of readings to a large range.134 Another letter dated 17th Cheshvan 5752 points out acknowledging the limitations of science, set by science itself, remove any challenge to the Torah. Those hypotheses about what actually occurred long ago such as the evolutionary theory are not relevant to present day research, are highly speculative, are replete with internal weaknesses, and are not even strictly scientific.136
Man often sees things from a limited point of view. Conflict of interest can blind. Fans see a disputed call the opposite of the other team’s fans. A desire to see the past in a certain way led to the unintentional fabrication of human development. For decades science accepted a partial scull, stone ‘tools’ pieces of rock, and animal bones in a cave in France proved modern man preceded Neanderthal. While modern man may have come before Neanderthal, the findings from that cave were no proof. The scull may have had the Neanderthal brow feature broken off. The animal bones were washed in by flood water and the stones were naturally formed. In America a brave scientist was ridiculed for, and others avoided questioning the Clovis first theory. Fortunately the evidence contradicting the theory was eventually disseminated.
Sometimes what we seek is in view if we open our eyes, as with the well by Hagar and Ishmael. Many people kick themselves for not acting on a passed historic investment opportunity that in hindsight was obvious. Failure to sense does not negate a reality. To prevent physical decay we consult doctors. A good CTA can protect wealth. Torah scholars can prepare us for spiritual challenges.
String theory theorizes undetectable strands of vibrating energy compose all matter. The fact that we can’t test or observe the strings has not kept many top scientific minds from delving into its study. This research has been going on for over a decade and is well funded. That is because it makes sense and answers a lot of questions. Torah makes more sense and answers the most questions. The lesson is to direct and support the greatest minds in Torah study. If string theory is true it fits in perfectly with the Torah account.
Today's Mitzrayim: Mitzrayim (Egypt) means borders or limits. No slaves had escaped. A scientist who knows science is limited to natural phenomena should realize scientific observations are equivalent to watching a puppet show production by the Creator. No pure scientist could assign the 100% probability of Joshua picking the looter135 or Jonah getting the short stick. Adam realized in just a few months right after the winter solstice that his scientific extrapolation didn’t reveal the true design of Hashem. The world was not plunging into total darkness. Science misses the larger picture and the behind the scenes reality. Only with awareness of the Creator will science ever be able to solve the whole puzzle of life. Pharaoh, like many today, was living in denial of Hashem (Exodus 5:2). They thought to master creation yet stayed subject to the body. The dead body bereft of soul is the epitome of defilement (Teumah). The Children of Israel souls were able to break the physical barriers of Egypt to attain freedom and master material wealth (Genesis 13:1, Exodus 12: 36). Observing Yom Kippur, Bris Milah, and other mitzvoth, demonstrates true freedom. The body, material goods, and nature can be made subservient to the soul. We recite partial Hallel the end of Passover as the redemption is yet incomplete.
9) A Recent Creation:
Old universe theory contradicts itself and factual science so it is bound to conflict with the truth of Torah. Science should at least footnote the ‘circular reasoning’121.2 of Old Earth><Absence isotopes.
Carbon Dating and related techniques need serious adjustment. Absence of radiation to start would cause new things to test very ancient. Every such test from creation on would date over 7500 years if the radioactive isotope producing radiation were absent. A 'scientific fact' is that different climatic conditions produce grasses with different levels of carbon isotopes, which are incorporated into the offspring when the grass is eaten and metabolized by the creatures.121 Being boiled spun, and soaking a year in ocean water might also effect how artifacts date. Calibrating for atmospheric fluctuations in carbon-14 up to a couple thousand years based on Californian bristlecone pine rings assumes one growth ring a year and an even isotope distribution, in diverse life forms, around the globe.
Separation of the upper and lower waters was timed to cool the immense heat generated by element formation during first days of Creation.
Using light years vs. age of stars to date the universe leaves a contradiction only a young universe 'stretched out like a curtain' (Psalms) at creation has been able to reconcile to date. There is a universal pressure122 that could have been used by Hashem like a fast forward dial for light speed etc. If the standard speed of light was not surpassed during Creation the theory of relativity and time dilation would reconcile time frames of science and the Bible2. Outer Space observations may be better explained as a ‘hologram’ than the residue of a random Big Bang. The microwave evidence showing ‘fluctuations on all scales were already in place from the earliest moments of the universe’ proves cosmic Inflation Theory. ‘The universe expanded at an unimaginably rapid rate, far faster than the speed of light, for an infinitesimal fraction of a second just after Creation.’122.21 The high ratio of doubles star systems is not consistent with random placement.
Life started early and was widespread. Sino Bacteria fossils prove life started very early and very fast.122.25 The Cambrian explosion lasted between 1 and a few hundred years based on a greater number of body plans than exist today with lower species diversity.
If as old as accepted how have comets retained their volatile constitutes or be clean of pulverized charcoal? Why isn’t the moon covered with meters of dust? Why isn’t the ocean saltier? Where is the calcification? Why aren’t helium levels higher? Why didn’t stronger sun or core waste Earth? An abundance of granite rock proves surface was never molten. See Evolution Cruncher chapter 4 at www.evolution-facts.org for many scientific examples how stars, sun, moon, comets, meteors, earth atmosphere, rotation, magnetic field, energy deposits, core, oceans, soil, river deltas, etc. all support creation 3760BCE. 'Fossil fuels' are from earth's formation not fossils.123 The fact petroleum reserves are still useable indicates a young planet. The Burgess Shale and 'Cambrian Explosion' should be admissions of a sudden creation of life. So should signs of life converging with the age the planet became habitable.124 Inter min 'natural selection' that Darwin mistakenly believed took millions of years happens practically overnight, as happened to a group of freezing swallows.123 A few Cichlid species in Lake Victoria varied into over 400 species in just a few thousand years. Inventions span a short time. Look at the population growth of just China and the USA in 200 years despite war, famine, disease, and family planning. Can you imagine how many graves and people would be in the world if over 6000 years has really passed? DNA testing, see section 8, refutes conventional fossil and strata dating.
The oldest bird is below the oldest lizard fossils and human below ape fossils from whom they allegedly came.86
No missing link here: Two people connected Avraham and Adam (Noah and Methuselah). Two connected Avraham to Moshe (Jacob and Amram). Avraham likely knew Noah. We know Yitzchak studied in the academy of Shem son of Noah. So the accuracy of the Torah was established by those closest to, and knowledgeable of, the events. This avoids inaccurate revisionist history. The Torah time line is detailed in the work 'Legacy of Sinai'. No documented traditions predate its 5765 years. Some cultures count seasons not years or have gaps in the record.
In less than a lifetime many people believe Jewish Holocaust losses of six million are grossly exaggerated. Some will even prove this ‘Scientifically’ if you accept their premises on fatality rates etc. Those who deny a six-day Creation 3760BCE, or fault the million plus number of Jews participating in the Exodus from Egypt use similar faulty arguments. For tens of lifetimes no revision to the Torah account took place, as the events were widely known to be factual. The wise men of the nations held Creation in Nissan (R.H.12a).
Some reasons to be in denial of a young universe are money (salary, research grants etc.), prestige, trying to avoid yolk of heaven, ignorance, naiveté and not questioning popular myth. Bribery blinds. The influential 1800 member National Academy of Sciences has smothered any dissent. It has been choosing its own members since 1863. Over 90% reject a Creator open to prayer and an afterlife. Compare that to 40% of all scientists who do believe. The chance of their electing more than a token theist is about the same as the secular humanist Israel Supreme court admitting the primacy of Halacha (Torah law). They discredit Torah by distorting its position. The admonishment 'not to let success go to our head and falsely believe it was our independent effort, and talent that made good', need be posted at NAS as there is a correlation between power and arrogance. Many unwittingly consumed undesired ingredients before food labeling laws. Science theory fed the public also requires full disclosure.
No living coral reefs, forests, or trees date over 5765 years. Ice layers in Greenland validate only a few thousand years when considering climate change and continental divide.
The first documented use of fire by man was in Israel western dated 800,000 yrs ago. That use of fire didn’t reach Europe for 200,000 years126.7 makes this dating ludicrous. Missing gaps are in the archeological as well as fossil records. That different stage stone tools often belonged to the same user who simply modified when worn magnifies the gap. Why such sparse evidence if human habitation really spanned tens of thousands of years? A recent Creation solves the 6,000 year gap between the same highly skillful spear head flaking techniques of the European Solutrean and American Clovis. Why would it take 27,000 years to go from skilled cave art to writing? Why is all the indisputable evidence widespread and appear suddenly within the past 5,000 years?
Rugops primus fossils recently discovered in India cut the time elapsed since the break between South America and Africa by 25 million years.127.2 How flimsy was the prior dating. 2 more discoveries can erase the remaining 50 million overstated years.
The only account 100% consistent with factual science of whom, how, and why we are, and when and where we are from, is Torah. Many independent dating methods that substantiate the Torah are discarded as being way out of whack with the preconceived notions of the researcher. They ignore or dismiss the findings using baseless excuses. Always say 'appears as if x years old, based on such and such false assumption', when using western dating.
9B) 'Everything was Created with its complex stature' R’ Yehoshua Ben Levi, Talmud Rosh Ha-Shanah (R.H.)11A:
Physical matter was created on the first day and sorted over 6 days.
According to the view Hashem created and destroyed 2000 worlds before ours one can argue they were a metaphor or returned to nothing.
Another understanding is these worlds were those created and destroyed on the first three days, Rabbi Abahu, Genesis Rabbah. The purpose of these worlds may have been to build the heavy elements and other components needed for human life.2 It was a good idea if done by the second day before the upper waters were separated so the reactions would not overheat the earth. Living species documented to have coexisted with dinosaurs prove we are part of same world. To be consistent those who claim a day lasted longer extend Adam’s 930 year lifespan. Disingenuously the same people typically reduce his lifespan.
Adam wasn't formed a baby, new yet developed enough to name animals. Language, agriculture, animal farming and sacrifice were with us since the first family. Adam also had a complete set of all healthy DNA that compose mankind. Hashem built into life the ability to adapt. That is how Hashem could direct the base species to fill the world.
The trees in Gan Eden were ready to eat of. Elsewhere vegetation, with complete DNA, created on day three had not yet breached the surface. Paleosols could be this widespread layer of soil not covered by water. Plants in this state do not last long. Life would have soon perished without Adam's prayers for precipitation, 'Hashem desires the prayer of the righteous'. From the point vegetation was created on Day 3 it could not have been the equivalent of years before Adam. Grown trees did not exist outside Eden till Adam. This contradicts old universe theory that claims dinosaurs roamed for millions of years prior to man.
There is no need for Believers to think Hashem would need more then a day to grow trees ready to eat from in Gan Eden see Yona 4:6 – 4:10.
When the sun and moon were set in place is the basis of calculating the Tekufos (seasons). The 28 year cycle blessing over the sun, a prayer for precipitation, and a third law connected to Tekufos are based on the teaching the sun was set in place at the very beginning of day 4. The molad is when the new moon starts between the earth and sun each month. One tradition holds a Nissan creation the other Tishrei See R.H. 12a. Implicit is a day was 24 hours, 1/29.xxx of a lunar cycle, by day four. That is before any animal life was created. Again we see Torah account backs a recent creation.
How did Hashem know the duration of three, 24-hour day's pre sun - 'Does not the creator of, an eye see, a mouth speak, an ear hear', and, a prophet know the future! Of course Hashem could have simply planned ahead.
All base fruit tree types were in Gan Eden. All initial base animal species started in or near Gan Eden as Adam named them (Gen 2:19). We will see the sun did not penetrate the atmosphere as later so the ways trees develop and flower may be different.
Any creature that needs decayed matter may have been dormant until the decay developed. More likely it is a sub species that didn’t distinguish itself till the conditions were right. Chicken or egg first? Hashem created the ancestors of egg laying chickens. One of 36 base species of birds, created on day five. They or a descendent had an egg(s) with the chicken breed features.
All healthy DNA was in place by end day six. Life started with the potential for a wide spectrum of base body forms with only a fraction surviving today. ‘Genes that became inactive long ago exists in 98% of DNA…’84 In just over a thousand year’s diversity of life exceeded 4000 years of diversification post flood. Out of hundreds of elephant species only two, the Asian and African, exist today. The earliest and best-preserved Bat fossils are at the Messel pit dated at the Eocene period. All seven-bat species found in just that one location already had echolocation systems.85 The spider’s web process was in place from the time of dinosaurs as were other complex insect traits. 70% of today's insects were just like those preserved in amber or fossilized from 'prehistoric' times. The other 30% just didn't get preserved or found.
When various minim were saved on the ark only one (Seven if Kosher) pair of thousands of a great spectrum was saved on the ark. For example the pair of canines had the genes for a ‘wolf, dingo, and Chihuahua to a Great Dane’. If we have 39" Pygmy to 76" Nordic families today it is likely some Pre-flood families averaged 50 and others 120 inches (the larger bias is explained later). Other features were also more flexible, the line between the most primate like man and most man like primate was much closer than today. Yet the line was never crossed. So H. Erectus, Neanderthal, Cro-Magnon, etc., were just a few of at least 15 different races of hominoid from our common ancestor Adam. Skeletons with mixed features have been found in Israel. It could be from interracial relations, recessive genes (which are more likely to be manifest in isolated groups) or from the spectrum before ‘Genetic Drift’ inbreeding distinguished the features and the environment favored others. King David slew Goliath the product of Og of the Nephilim (Gen. 6:4) and the Moabite Ophra. Neanderthal type Emim and Rephaim lived more recently then presumed. Abraham’s nephew Lot’s decedents conquered them (Deut. 2: 9-22).
Mitochondrial and nuclear DNA testing shows every Human from one very recent 'Eve'. Compare to ‘Eve mother of all mankind’ Genesis 3:20. Based on the slow current rate of change DNA shows the entire history of mankind to be only 100k-200k. The latest research shows rate of change 20 times faster than thought.86 We just learnt things started out much faster so either way 5765 is a much more accurate projection. Like in the game monopoly the rate new properties are acquired starts out fast and tapers off fast. So by the time of King Solomon it could be said about lifestyles and forms 'There is nothing new under the sun'. 'All Y chromosomes can be traced back to a single individual'. The date is also over estimated as researchers 'were forced to assume, quite unrealistically, that the size of the human population remained constant...’ Adjusting the DNA data for exponential population growth from our common ancestor Adam also supports a 5765 year history. Two lessons listed in Mishna Sanhedrin of one common ancestor: Producing great human diversity from one ‘stamp’ demonstrates the greatness of the Creator. That no one should claim genetic superiority. National socialists embraced and propagated the false theory of evolutionary to justify their euthanasia policy.
Primates are good for the Ecosystem, and interesting to observe. It is well Hashem provided animals with similar compositions to ours for dangerous life preserving science and medical tests. Our digestive systems are closer to pigs than apes. Our DNA sequences and count are closer to androgynous worms than some primates. 40% of certain worm genes are similar to humans. At least ‘220 Human Genes come direct from bacteria’84 Adam was created from the ground and androgynous. The chromosome count of a potato is closer to ours than rodents. All creatures from day six were formed from the earth according to their min. Eve, the exception, was formed from Adam. That is why ‘women produce far fewer genetic mutations’84. Adam was created circumcised but developed a foreskin post sin. Like Jacob, Adam had a twin daughter with each son.
In Gan Eden the tree of knowledge was fig, wheat, esrog or grape. Like the Nachash type Tannin89, young Komodo dragon's tree perch. The Serpent in Eden walked upright. It could have been an ancestor to many dinosaur types before eventually losing its legs as a result of the curse (Genesis 1:14). Boa Constrictors retain vestigial spurs, remnants from legs. The oldest known snake fossils found in the Judean Hills near Jerusalem have part of their hind legs intact.90 Could Gan Eden have been far?44 Post single continent ‘Pangea’ landmass the Earth’s crust stretched and folded enough to easily cover the size of the largest known asteroid/comet crater, so why not Gan Eden.89.5 The only known burial chamber folded: the Machpalah. Human reproduction and food supply changed after the expulsion from special Gan Eden atmosphere.
10) A Change in Atmosphere:
Pre Mabul the atmosphere was different (Ibn Ezra and Abarvenel). Hydrocarbons, Quinones, clouds and gases may have acted as ultraviolet shields before the Ozone layer.92 Other important factors altering our environment were changes in the new position and height of the continents, ocean circulation, carbon dioxide levels, planetary tilt, and distance to sun. Chandler Wobble, ‘caused by changing air and water pressure’ in no longer symmetrical planet.92.5 The speed of light may have been different.93 It was a single continent (Gen.1:9).
'Adam could see to the ends of the earth'. Adam was of special stature before sinning and the light of day one was concealed (Chagiga 12a). Enveloping the earth were the reflective 'upper waters'. This could explain seeing to the opposite side. The early thicker atmosphere effected vision- for instance the ocean may have appeared green instead of blue. If it means to the end of all earth's lands they did not reach the poles, as there is more surface water than land and the mountains had not yet risen to obstruct the view. It might help to think of a northern summer when you can see the sun about to rise before it sets. The atmosphere magnifies, that is why the sun and moon look larger when on the horizon. A thicker atmosphere may magnify more. Think of sounds that reach further through water then air. There were thick clouds when we saw the thunder at Sinai. Adam would have had nice pollution free viewing angles through a thick atmosphere from Jerusalem. Today's seven continents were one and Jerusalem was its center94 and high point. One can still see from the Mediterranean to the Dead Sea from there.
Hashem has fine control over rapid mountain uplift and related power of splitting continents. No mention of mountains or isles of the sea are made prior to Mabul. The mountain ranges had not yet formed.93.5 The recent ice age has been attributed to the uplift of mountains. Weathering of silicate rock, Stuchin 87, shows a sudden shift from a warm global climate to that of today at a time that links the Tibetan plateau and Himalayan uplifts and ice age to be linked to the Mabul. Mountain position and content continues to impact our atmosphere. It was postulated mountain ranges kept Dinosaurs out of British Columbia. Now that tracks were found there107.13 formed in conditions consistent with the Mabul we can deduct those mountain ranges did not exist till after the flood began. Other ranges are likely to have been formed the same time around 4,100 years ago. Metamorphic rocks are igneous or sedimentary rocks changed by intense heat and pressure. Swirling fluids were present as rubies formed when India and Asia collided. This too indicates the Mabul coincided with sudden mountain uplift. Continents had not yet split before the flood as all species were able to come to the ark. In just one year during the course of the flood mountains had formed: the Ark came to rest on Mount Ararat. Eight centuries later during the forty years in the wilderness Hashem used the clouds of glory to rapidly flatten mountains and raise ravines for Israel(Numbers 10:24, Rashi). A final proof Ezekiel 38:20 and Zechariah 14:10 will be when Hashem swiftly level mountains and raises Jerusalem.
Surrounding the landmass was the one big ocean. Ocean circulation must have been different before continental split. Ocean circulation plays an important role in today's global weather.
Post Mabul increases in methane, a greenhouse gas, released from hydrate deposits has been measured. 'Scientists found a striking increase in the lighter carbon 12 isotope in the preserved shells of microscopic creatures that survived the heat spell' during the Mabul. The extinction peak coincides with significant shift in carbon isotope ratios.94.5 Pre Mabul plant life was different as changes in atmosphere effect plants. The healthier vegetation was expected to be mans diet and explains why such a high ratio of dinosaurs were herbivorous. In Gan Eden the trees themselves were edible. Plant life that grows only shielded from the sun, now found only under the rain forest canopy, was all over.95 This can explain if gymnosperms preceded angiosperms. Flowering plants are affected by the sun. The Antarctic land mass had trees. There was only a small temperature difference from the equator to the north and south poles. There was enough wood left around Egypt for all the brick making and sacrifices. The Sahara, Australian, Western N. America, and other desserts, were lush. This is the true timing of the 'Eocene period'. A thicker moister atmosphere kept comfortable warmth wrapped around the earth like a blanket. UV radiation is unable to penetrate past a few millimeters of water. The fountain of youth myth might be based on the moister atmosphere fed by the stream from Eden. Today a slow pace of life can be found at the depths of the ocean floor. Artic octopuses have a life span 6 times breeds more affected by the sun. Even a completely protected living space will be compromised to the extent the food chain is exposed.
A more recent example of a healthier atmosphere was the 'Clouds of Glory' that Hashem used to protect Israel from the elements for 40 years in the Midbar, where 'clothes did not wear out'. Manna was made available. We did not need meat. Moses retained his full vigor till 120. Sarah and Rebecca also merited the divine presence. Till 127 Sarah retained her full childhood beauty. Their difficulty conceiving could be compared to the slower pre flood fertility rate and the superior atmosphere they shared.
Post Mabul Hashem used the first recorded rainbow as a warning to mankind. Mishna Avot implies it is the first. Pre Mabul there is no proof or evidence of rainbows in clouds! Even those with no direct tradition, who deferred to the science of the day, would concede the absence of rainbows in clouds would prove a different atmosphere. The atmosphere bends light so in a thicker atmosphere light would fare differently. Those scientists had neither today’s advanced instruments, nor Chazal’s traditions. The rainbow reminds us of the harmful radiation sin caused in our atmosphere.
‘Researchers found a sharp shift in organic carbon levels at precisely the point in time the TJ extinction occurred.’93.6
Pre Mabul Life spans were much longer (Ramban, Gen. 5:4), maturity rates slower, as early human skeleton remains coorborate.86 'Living Dinosaur' fossils such as great white sharks, alligators, Komodo dragons, condors, etc. grew to twice the size of today. Humans averaged 30% larger. Our vestigial wisdom teeth support this. Noah was bigger and his arms length longer.94.3 The absence of harmful radiation pre Mabul allowed for sustained growth. We will see later most caves and ice age from flood on. Ice age animals were still growing bigger. Monkey bones from the longest cave in the Southern Hemisphere are twice the size of the same species today.94.1 Bears, lions, wolves, and bison were bigger their modern day counterparts. Radiation's gradual buildup post flood gradually reduced growth. The 'gradual' buildup of radiation post Mabul is the most likely manner Hashem gradually cut life spans (Genesis 6:3) from 1000 to 120.98 Diet was affected by the radiation build. A gradual degradation of our DNA and cell regeneration resulted. The radiation build up triggered the molecular mechanism causing cells to proliferate and die much faster than had been normal. Without realizing it we suffer from rapid aging much like the genetic disorder progeria. The average life span now is to what it was pre flood, as the progeria patient age span is to our average. Hashem also gave the 120 year span from the time of the decision until the flood as fair warning. Those just born would not be short changed. To cure cancer we can obey Hashem so the way back to a superior atmosphere for us and our food source will be revealed.
Modern body types found near Neanderthal remains could be second and third generation of the Neanderthals who lived longer and whose lives overlapped several generations of their offspring born into the radiation buildup. Post Babel wars, some mentioned in the Bible, wiped out the remaining giants.
Another variable affecting growth can be home size. Only a small % of the Earth is readily inhabitable. The original habitable area was many times larger than the largest pocket today. Identical salmon yearlings, one goes to the pacific the other stays upstream and is already close to its fully mature size. Ten times the size, with features never developed by his twins, on return from the pacific the reunion is just one of many instances proving environment can influence size and reproductive capacity. The change in atmosphere and degraded DNA can be linked to spiritual causes. An alert to introspect, prepare for a successor, be tested or atone is the silver lining of illness with us from the era of Jacob.
Early nature and its location provide a clue as to the prior atmosphere and shape of the Earth. Evidence of changes in the magnetic poles, a shifted equator, and planetary tilt,96 corroborate that 'the Earth was created round' (Chazal).99 A rounder earth may have been able to sustain a greater protective cloud or gas layer. Its magnetic field could better deflect deadly cosmic radiation and ionization. With our earth tilted now, distance to the sun fluctuates more and confirms our premise of a change in atmosphere.
11) The Mabul, ice age then separation of the continents:
The root of Mabul is Babel (Rashi). This could refer to the mixing of the upper and lower waters separated at the first days of creation (Genesis 1:2-9, 6:7, 7:8). The Creator did not close 'all' the 'arubot' and the water was 'spent' from the atmosphere (Gen. 8:2, 7:11-20, 9:12-15). Water to completely curtain the earth was in the pre-flood atmosphere, enough for 40 days and nights of rain. That the waters continued to rise indicates it was not just a simple rain fed by evaporation. This water may be the base of the polar ice, and some mountain top glaciers today. There is ample evidence of a Mabul with surging waters. Many mountain ranges were formed during the Mabul. The waters had enough centripetal force to lap over the highest mountains.
When it says Hashem opened the fountains of the deep it could be referring to more than water. Some of the water was boiling (R.H.12a). A lava flow reached four continents it was recently determined. There is a 'Ring of Fire' a chain of underwater volcanoes across the Pacific and the Andes mountains. This contributed to a sharp rise in temperatures. Hurricane, asteroids, comet89.5, meteors, earthquakes, mudslides, melting ice, Siberian basalt traps and volcanic eruptions, etc. were orchestrated by Hashem to create tsunami, continental split and mountain building. Plate Tectonic theory shows how they interrelate. An ordinary tidal wave travels 300 MPH, an earthquake at 1000+ MPH. The flood waters reached the highest speed possible. The force facilitated continental shift, forming the mid-oceanic ridge, Nile rift and more. Grand canyons and mountain chains formed in days. The pressure altered the globe; see 'Terra' program Los Alamos Research Center. The highest mountains between the Andes and Himalayas in New Guinea were pushed up from the ocean floor. Scientists found the December 26, 2004 quake and tsunami caused dramatic plate movement and island shift. The laws of inertia prove the Mabul which lasted months was fully capable of continental split.
The build up and melting of Glaciers could also have ‘tilted’ the earth.107.12 Their glacial remnants of carbon free blue ice are similar to that found in the arctic.
Mature Sequoia trees survive forest fires and have the size specified for the Ark. The 50 amah (1 amah = 20+- inch) pole, the ten sons of Haman were hung from one above the next, was a single piece of wood from the ark, Chazal on Book of Ester. There is evidence of extinct Mid-East redwood forest. Hashem could have protected the ark in the eye of a hurricane equivalent. No rain over the ocean or Jerusalem would locate Jerusalem as the center of the one land mass. The Mabul continued to surge, reaching the peaking after 150 days beyond the 40 days of rains. The 'ice age' was the result.
Any prior ice ages could be from the first days of Creation when the 'Divine presence hovered upon the surface of the water (ice?)'. Each surge or subsequent seasonal changes could account for any evidence of repeated glacial advance and retreat. The seasons were instated (or reinstated) (Genesis 9:22). Glacial speed can be greatly altered by changes in precipitation and or temperature. Precipitation from the Mabul turned glacier receded quickly during summer seasons. Ice dams melted releasing massive quantities of freshwater. One blanketed the Labrador Sea. This caused a 5-8 degree Multiyear-year temperature drop. Ice build-ups left much of the continental shelves above water, a thousand mile wide land bridge connected Asia by Alaska, likely routes of early American visitors. Colonies of sea life became stranded in receding waters isolated from the oceans as mountain ranges formed. Fresh water lakes formed from underground springs, melting glaciers, snow and fresh rains. Niagara Falls, which has its own signature dating method, is accepted as about 4,000 years old.
Dwarfing Niagara the dry falls in Coulee Washington from waters backed up by ice dams over Missoula Montana had 10x the power of all the earth’s rivers combined. Though ridiculed for decades by gradualists, geologist J. Harlan Bretz was proven correct that flood shaped the landscape suddenly. One reason for ancient man made mounds would have been to survive the flash flood aftershocks of the Mabul.
Ancient written flood accounts relate to the Mabul or its aftershocks when ice dams broke. If writing has been with us for only 5,000 years and ocean levels rose as a result of the aftershocks, the continents separated within the past 5,000 years.
Antarctica of all 7 continents, is the coldest, has 70% of the fresh water, and has the precipitation level of the Sahara desert. More water remains from the Mabul as it is the coldest continent. The amount of water would be less then 70% if more then 4,500 years elapsed, as precipitation does not match water loss rate. Dormant bacteria under an Antarctic ice lake dated just 2,800 years.107.1
It was not easy reinstating a balanced eco system post flood. Hunting and a ‘Rapid cycling at the end of the ice age changed plant distribution herbivorous creatures depended on’ led to extinction of many of these animals and their predators.
The continents separated during the life of Peleg (Gen:10:25). The melting glaciers raised ocean levels and the globe approximated its present state thus ending the ‘ice age’. The ‘ocean circulation pumps’ by Iceland and Greenland are critical and sensitive to climate. They could have had many cycles during the 340-year period from flood to Babel. ‘Peleg’ means ‘split’ his passing on also coincided with the ‘Babel’ dispersion.
Forbidden relationships angered Hashem and contributed to the Mabul. Extra-min offspring were not all fertile, as mules. Those hybrids were not taken in the ark and may account for some extinct life forms.107.2 The ‘Great Tenninim’ also missed the boat. Many types of Dinosaurs to sea floor sediment dwelling single-celled organisms, and other life like giant ammonite shellfish, perished en masse. Fish were spared.107.4
The April 27 '99 proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences concluded humans had a recent brush with extinction based on mitochondrial DNA sequences and few genetic variations amongst us today. On the 17th of Cheshvan 1656 years after creation the Mabul began. Noah his wife, three sons, daughters in law, and Og survived. 340 years after the Mabul 70 Nations and languages dispersed from one due to the confusion Hashem caused at the Tower of Babel. Similar sophisticatedly engineered brick or stone structures were subsequently built in Sudan, Israel, Great Britain, Guatemala, Peru, China, Etc. Sacrifice, mummification and or burial for an afterlife, astronomical calendrical systems, etc. were done across the globe. The most recent immigration of human civilization was 'out of Babel'108.
There is residue of tobacco and cocoa plants found only in the Americas and Eastern Asian silk in ancient Egypt mummies. King Solomon had banana plants in the royal gardens.36 Using stars and wood canoes Polynesians navigated Pacific Ocean crossings. The memory of Earth’s landmass was fresh. Accurate ancient maps of the Antarctic landmass now exist that can only be mapped with modern technology now that under ice. It used to be connected to Australia and if attached to South Africa would help locate precious mineral deposits. The people on average were stronger and smarter. Ponder the remarkable design/prowess of the Aleut Kayak/er.109 It is no wonder there were ancient global trade routes.
Most caves and tar pits formed during or after the Mabul. Conditions could have formed caves at avalanche or earthquake speed. Stalactites and stalagmites could have formed in months or days like icicles. If dinosaurs perished in the flood it explains why no dinosaurs lived in caves or were trapped in the La Brea tar pits. Evidence of Dinosaurs washed up by flood confirms they lived until flood. A French cave was formed by flood conditions. So was a cave with the remnants of several Indonesian Neanderthal Island Dwarfs. They hunted reptiles 5 times their size. They are rumored to have lived until the Dutch arrival. So far though the physical evidence can only account for hundreds, not thousands years of settlement. These show Neanderthal lived after the flood. Cave art also appears from the ice age on which we have shown to be post flood. There is an opinion two warning floods affected a third of the Earth each before The Mabul. Many other cultures have folk law and other records that also support the Flood and or its aftershocks from breaking ice dams. Ancient cuneiform tablets recount the Mabul. The Sumerians thought to be the first literate inhabitants of Mesopotamia call Noah Ziusudra. In the Old Babylonian version he is called Atrahasis, Utnapishtim in the Standard epic of Gilgamesh (the fifth king of Urak by Ur Kasdim). He seeks a fountain of youth as longevity was diminishing. More written records endure from that era than any time till the advent of the printing press. The great majority of the million or so known tablets wait deciphering. The Chinese year coincides with Noah's birth year. Hindu considered by some to be the oldest religion starts with the flood. It replaces idol Krishna for Noah to save the living things. January stands for Janus (root wine = yayin) who was Noah, before becoming idol in ancient Roman legend. Noah tried to atone for the original sin with wine and looked back and forward to bridge the eras (BritAm).
12) Man and Dinosaur Coexist(ed):
Man existed 1,656 years before continental split. Dinosaurs lived up to up to and perhaps beyond split.
The Legged Nachash Tenin from Gan Eden would itself be considered a dinosaur. It could have been hundreds of years and many dinosaur sub species branched out before the snake branch developed. Longer legs positioned under the pelvis distinguish dinosaurs from reptiles today. Survival time in cold or water is shorter with longer limbs as with diabetes and frostbite we are most vulnerable at the limb extremities. This may be one reason dinosaur’s fared worse then surviving reptiles.
Dinosaur fossils found on the tiny New Zealand islands indicate the break up of the super continent ‘Gondwana’, or Pangea landmass, coincided with 340 years from Mabul to Peleg.
The Los Angeles basin did not exist when dinosaurs were prominent. It was formed when mountain ranges formed then rotated 90 degrees during the Mabul epoch. The dinosaur fossils that do exist are ‘considered to have been drowned in storm-swollen streams or rivers that flowed to the ocean’. Again we see dinosaurs lived at least till the Mabul.
Job lived several hundred years after that. Man and Behemoths113, whose description fits that of some dinosaurs, were created on the same day. 115 Leviathan is a large aquatic creature. Like Galapagos tortoises they lived long but like blue whales were not very fruitful. Was a fast growth rate and low carnivore ratio due to dinosaurs being warm blooded?110.21 Or was it a healthier atmosphere and vegetation that allowed dinosaurs to flourish. A healthier atmosphere and or vegetarian will again make man and beast less aggressive allowing closer coexistence. Lions will eat hay like cattle and children play near vipers (Isaiah 11:7).
On day five lizards and reptilian dinosaurs ‘Great Tenninim’ were created.110.24 Fossil remains of today's 'Living Dinosaurs' known to coexist with the extinct ones indicate dinosaur fossils are not leftovers from a prior world. Fossilization requires swift mineralization and burial.111 If not true and the earth is so old it would be a big graveyard and at least have more fossils in strata that represent 'millions' of years. The fossil distribution attests to the Mabul. Each Mabul surge could strip and or leave a sediment layer. So many sediment layers were reversed or have no fossils. A single volcanic 1980 eruption at Mount St. Helen left a deposit over a large area, 45 meters deep, in just minutes. This stratum has multiple layers, of various thickness, and assorted geological features112. Human and dinosaur fossils found in the same strata are too easily dismissed; footprints to big to be human, scavenger animals dug and dragged the bones, etc. ‘Through the whole 180 foot depth of the Hell Creek formation, the species mix and number of dinosaurs were the same right up to the 2 centimeter layer rich in iridium, a rare element brought to earth by the asteroid’.112.2 The lack of change in the formation also indicates it formed in years, not millions of years. ‘Microspherules’, metallic glassy spheres, resulting from the asteroid appear at a rate 100 to 1000 times that of normal rock layers.94.5 The South China ‘Meishan’ site exemplifies the Permian – Triassic extinction. Western dated at 251 million years ago, it has just revealed to have this same unique feature of the 65 million years ago western dated dinosaur extinction.89.5 The existing factual evidence of just one such impact indicates this 186 million year span to be an illusion. Any such Asteroid(s) or Meteor was likely linked to the Mabul events. Just one sample if valid is enough to discredit dinosaur ‘gradualists’ who thought extinction was over many thousand years. Perhaps many dinosaur types adept in water emerged around the globe post flood. Some sub species stayed in the water like sea snakes. The changed habitat and radiation levels kept most species from reproducing. Dying out as the mammals dispersed from the ark filling the voids.
Ancient traditions tell of greater longevity (Atlantis) and size. Were giant warrior encounters fabricated after confusing giraffe and mastodon bones for human? Megalina was a 26 foot lizard; Genyornis a 9 foot bird, many animals were larger so were some humans. High temperatures and aging warp and shrink Human bones precipitously. The ancients knew anatomy. Giants lived much more recent than assumed. Pygmy elephant fossils on Malta are likely from larger ancestors before rising ocean levels separated the island from Africa. Joshua defeated four giants in Hevron. David slew Goliath (the word origin of colossus) who was descended from Og (Source word for ogre, who was the King of Bashan when killed by Moshe). Gilgamesh was ‘two thirds of him divine and one third human’.112.4 We would be considered one third divine as father, mother and Hashem contribute to our birth. The 15 foot statue of Gilgamesh grasping a mature lion half his size could well have equated his actual stature People helped wiped out large ice age creatures.113 Mammoth Tusks show they were reproducing early and often. They were stressed from hunting not starvation. A 2% annual kill rate by hunters would have doomed those elephant species in just a century.
The lessons of Tectonic Ramping, the reversal of sediment layers attributed to seismic action, are lost with false assumptions. Like animal or human fossils having teeth of plant eaters are more recent, many won't consider our possible coexistence, or the prior nature of plant life sustained today's meat eaters. Permission to eat animals came after Noah helped save the animals on the Ark and the quality of vegetation diminished. Sauropods too big to use tree shade, or find protection from cold spells, yet unable to regulate their own heat could have become sterile or perished. In a field of Sauropod nests, now in South America, the fossilized eggs were inundated with flood water.113.2 Consumers of large quantities of particular vegetation 97% of dinosaurs, including Behemoths were herbivorous.114 Needing a steady flow of energy from the sun they would be particularly vulnerable to the change in atmosphere. Their nesting requirements were even more sensitive. Fossilized theropods from the upper cretaceous period had masses of mineral grains in the rib cage indicating a vegetarian diet. Will this and other recent findings cause an honest revaluation? Teeth marks of one species in another point to coexistence. Absence of teeth marks does not preclude coexistence, especially if almost all were herbivorous. Avoidance, change in habitat, food supply or lack of fossil evidence etc. can easily discount any absence of cross species biting.
Dinosaur size and strength would not deter mankind.
No healthy animal dared attack man in whose face they sensed the divine image. Even after man's aura was dampened through sin Hashem implanted in animals an instinctive fear of man, Genesis 9:2. Cain also received a special mark. Normally only desperate, desensitized or sick animals attack man. Like man-eating tigers, only about 3 per thousand, but even they avoid striking from the face. Killer whales will eat Grey whales and seals but seldom attack humans. Fewer than 3% of protective Black caiman mothers take a stand against humans. Snakes have special status, Genesis 3:15. Many living dinosaurs live in proximity to humans today. What fractions of people today are buried with an Anaconda, Great White Shark, or Giant Monitor Lizard? Local dinosaurs would have been slaughtered had they developed a taste for humans. Indonesia tribesman till this day jump on 60-foot sperm whales to drive in hand held spears. Even T-Rex, whose preferred diet may have been carrion, was an easy target when sleeping, or an egg in a nest. The only dinosaur fossil examined with tissue intact showed it to be just another crocodile type.87 The biting force of a T.Rex is equal to an alligator’s.88 Villages may have been set on mounds, fenced etc. depending on which dangerous animals were prevalent and the strength of the guardians. Like the giraffe tall animals could have had difficulty climbing even a few feet. Most dinosaurs were only a threat when disturbed so they were not provoked.116
Statistically meaningless is which fossils appear first if animals were created a day apart 5765 years ago. What would be meaningful was the various base species reproduction rate. Science is currently reexamining much of the fossil record based on new evidence of a greater variety of early species.120.8
Today you can find deposits rich in crocodile remains, but void of human remains, in time of drought they congregate in whatever water remained nearby before perishing. Pre flood was a time when a lot less people were dying as they matured slower and lived longer. Dinosaurs that laid large clutches of eggs, depending on the atmospheric effect on gestation periods and maturity rates, would have been a lot more plentiful then other mammals as well. Most living things and shallow graves were swept out to sea. So it is unlikely humans and mammals remains would be found with dinosaur fossils. Birds could have flown over the early tidal wave. Other variables would affect where they would end up in the flood, such as size, speed, tolerance for heat, lung capacity, swimming ability, density, starting habitat, and strength. So from the Gobi Desert in Asia, Australia, Argentina, to the Badlands of Dakota you find many large dinosaurs fossils embedded in dirt where they were climbing the hills to avoid the flooding and were caught and preserved in sand and mud slides. Riverbed dinosaur tracks in Texas, British Colombia and elsewhere quickly filled with sediment. The Mabul began slowly and the ground began to soften. The conditions were reminiscent of Yam Suf as the Egyptians became mired. Many of the top dinosaur fossil sites were formed when dinosaurs perished from the Mabul conditions. So the evidence shows the Dinosaurs lived at least till the Mabul. So we have a minimum 1,656 year overlap of man with dinosaur.
The 'Great Tenninim' Genesis 1:21 (dinosaurs, reptiles, etc.) were not taken on the Ark. Only those few types that could survive the flood with its catastrophic conditions and the subsequent change in environments had a chance. Change in climate, habitat, food supply, radiation poisoning, diseases, allergies, hunting, etc. caused additional extinction. No longer would dinosaurs dominate.
A fossil exceeding the mass of a blue whale has yet to be found. Sauroposeidon at nearly 100 feet fits a description in the Book of Job.
After the flood all the remaining species branched out. Many species made it to the Americas and Australia before glacial melt rose water levels splitting continents by Peleg’s death. Post flood elephants, giant sloth and lions made it to America. Anteaters formally found in Europe made it all the way to South America, as did llamas (a breed of camel). Often animals are different breeds of the same base species found elsewhere. Some migrating sloth, tapir, and llama, ancestors became stuck in the La Brea tar pits on their Journey from the Ark to South America. Island pygmy mammoths off the coast of California are from migrating mammoths in the area before rising ocean levels.
Neanderthals had medical care as they have the same rate of healed crippling wounds, from mammoth hunting or the like, as rodeo riders. Neanderthals 'coexisted with modern humans in central Europe for over a thousand years'. Mammoths extinct just 3,500 years, provided oil and other useful materials. The reason we may have gone east after the flood was to follow the mammoth migration as Indians would buffalo. Did Nimrod prove himself hunting mammoth in what is now Michigan? Accompanying some hunters were canines. Dingo’s are from a single pregnant female canine, around the time we were in the East.
The La Brea tar pits have thousands of ice age mammal fossils. Some mammals like raccoons are notably absent because not every species leaving the ark followed the same migration route and speed. Still if the pits were active thirty thousand not three thousand years there should be raccoon and more of other type of remains. Genetic testing of neighboring chipmunk populations also shows a split from the ice age. If the ice age lasted so long and was so long ago the populations should overlap. The only human fossil therein was determined to have been from after the mammoth era. Western science teaches humans and reptiles coexisted with mammoths here for thousands of years. Humans and mammoths are more likely to share the same habitat then Man and Dinosaur. Post Mabul there was less suitable habitat, a faster reproductive rate, and shorter life spans. So no one in good conscience can argue absence of human and dinosaur bones together means they did not coexist. The absence of reptile fossils in the pits also proves if mammal bones not found with dinosaur bones it does not mean they did not coexist.
13) Ancient Egypt and Israel Dates.
The modern dating of Pharaohs fails to consider that some of them ruled upper and lower kingdoms concurrently, their efforts to erase the memory of some disliked Pharaohs and the long time it took to recover from the Exodus. Later pyramids had straw based mud bricks (Exodus 5:7) on the inside, exteriors were to be stone. The Exodus left many unfinished till today. Calibrated C-14 dates on mud bricks and layers of the Amenemhet 1 pyramid core test over 800 younger than the presumed end of his reign, 1959BCE.127 This closes much of the 1000-year gap between the start of the western chronology 3150BCE and post Mabul history from 2104BCE. Much C-14 pyramid dating is of reused wood and charcoal we used to bake the bricks, which only shows when the wood stopped growing. Older cultural material use for expedience or authenticity was common. Certain pollution enables chemical reactions that shield the atmosphere. Edward Teller of Nuclear fame has proposed capitalizing on this economical alternative to emission control. We were refined as a nation in 'The Iron furnace of Egypt'. The tremendous amount of smoke from the brick making fires and smelters likely caused low isotope levels in local straw whose C-14 dated age would be exaggerated. Pre-Exodus the radiation buildup was still in progress as life spans still exceeded 120; again unadjusted dating would overstate age results. During Peleg's life ended the year of the Dispersion of Babel, 1996, the continents separated and Earth's axis was stabilizing. Therefore astronomical assumptions western science uses to date early ancient Egypt need adjustment.
Noah had three sons Shem, Ham (teacher of Hamurabi?) and Yaphet. The Mabul was in 1656. Ham built Hevron for Canaan and seven years later Zoan (Tanis?), the first capital of Egypt, for Mizraim his sons. Of seventy distinct peoples worldwide Mizraim's seven sons and their heirs were the major influence in Ancient Egypt's formation. Pepy 2's reign of 94 years confirms the longevity potential of the era. Zoan would later be the Hyksos capital and is in the area near Rameses and Goshen.
The Hyksos dynasty is likely linked to the four kings including the mighty Nimrod (Amrafel) from Babel and Hamurabi (Chlodomer). Nimrod was a grandson of Ham and was the first to use war to establish a world empire. They also subjugated Sodom whose revolt ended in failure. Lot’s capture spurred Avraham to action. Year’s earlier Nimrod had cast Avraham, and brother, Lot’s father, into the furnace at the well-documented Mesopotamian City of Ur for promoting allegiance to one Creator. This could interfere with Nimrod’s ability to control people or upset free spirits, moral equivocators, and other religious establishments. Avraham with his servant Eliezer of Damascus triumphed shortly before the 'Covenant between the Parts' in 2018.
After the flood Noah offered sacrifices to Hashem at Jerusalem. Shem, and his great grandson Ever, had a theological seminary in Jerusalem. Isaac studied there after the test of his sacrifice. Sodom eventually paid the penalty for sanctioning selfishness etc. A crater at the southern end of the Dead Sea may be linked to the areas devastation in 2047, Genesis 19:23.
Abraham’s sojourn and legacy in Egypt likely left the recently discovered earliest known alphabetic inscriptions. Of Ever's surviving descendants only Avraham the 'Ivri' spoke 'Ivri' (Hebrew) the others spoke Aramaic and were called Arameans (Radak). The source of Ivri can be the name Ever, or Avraham came from across ‘over’ the river, or by independent thinking and refusal to follow a majority to evil Avraham stood opposed to everyone else at the time.
After Avraham passed on in 2123 Esau the twelfth generation from Noah took vengeance by assassinating Nimrod. Esau then affirmed the birthright to Jacob for the lentil soup.
Joseph descended to Egypt in 2216. His leadership along with the arrival of Jacob and 70 family members in 2238 enabled the alleged victory at Megiddo by Thutmose 3 in 1479BCE and establishment and extension of the Egyptian 'Empire' to Asia. Joseph's policies also benefited the priestly cast. Perhaps in foresight to keeping the tribe of Levy exempt from servitude. Later the tribe of Levi would stop the sin of the Golden Calf and replace the first born as the directors of Torah service and education. We should also be careful to exempt serious full time Yeshiva students from military duty, as their merit will enable military success. It was the golden age for Egypt and Jews too until our bondage developed between 2332-2361.
Moshe was born in 2368. He left to Midian at age 40 for 40 years. Many of Moses’ early exploits are noted in the Medrash. The Exodus was on the 15 of Nissan in year 2448. Seven weeks ‘Shavuot’ later we accepted and received Torah at Sinai. By the 24th of Kislev the Tabernacle was ready. Four hundred years later King David was reigning from Hevron than Jerusalem. Ten years into King Solomon’s reign the First Temple replaced the Tabernacle. In 3338 the 70-year exile to Babel commenced. Western bible scholars misdate it at 165 years prior, an error that taints all their dates past King David. The loss at Meggido by King Yoshiahu to Pharaoh Necho was in 3316. Recent research confirms the Torah dating. Construction of the palaces and the famous gates of Meggido were during Solomon's rule 2924-2964.
The 10 plagues, exodus of the children of Israel with great wealth, accompanied by a mixed multitude of others, and drowning of pursuing Egyptian army in the sea, left Egypt drained economically and its influence in a downward spiral. Lands deforested for farming and brick making were made desert. Is March for Exodus and Sept.-Dec. = 7 - 10 months from the 'First' month Nissan?
Rameses II was allegedly defeated at Kadesh 1275 BCE just a few years before Joshua led the 12 Tribes across the Jordan on the 10th day of Nissan, 2488. Excavations at Jerico confirmed hands off booty policy there as grain bins were not plundered. The city of Ay Joshua burnt was determined to have endured an especially intense fire. The altar of Joshua at Mount Eval129 is still there. It would be 1200 years till the exile of the ten tribes before Egypt extended its grasp far north again, but they never again attained the dominant position they had. The Persian 'Late' period of Egypt Dynasties soon followed, coinciding with Purim and reaffirmation of Torah acceptance in 3405. Iranian Jews often visit the remains mentioned in the Megilah Ester. Most of the nations and cities mentioned in Tanach have also been identified, Bavel, Padan Aram, Ur, Haran, Hevron, Zoan, Shilo, Ninveh, Shushan, etc.
In 3442-3454 Alexander the Great, who died a horrible death, expanded the Greek Empire. It ended 180 years later with the Chashmonean uprising that Chanukah commemorates. The Roman Empire resulted.
The Creator expedited our exodus from Egypt. A demonstrative plague one week a month for ten months took us from the depths of despair to exalted redemption. So is Hashem able to complete the redemption process speedily in our days. By the miraculous 6 day war in 5728, 1,900 years after Gamla, Hashem returned the Golan and Temple Mount to Israel.
14) The Original Light.
The title alludes to the ‘new light’ that will emanate from Zion in the Messianic era. While it may be a new light to many of us it is actually restoration of the original light from creation day one (Yaavetz). Torah is light (Proverbs 6:23). Torah study brings out that concealed light. The light of Torah completes unified theory. The Creator looked in the Torah and created the universe. Like string theory Torah has mathematical qualities. The vibrating strands of energy that comprise all physical matter were set in motion and exist by the word of Hashem. This light from day one Creation is not always concealed. The affect of the light depends on how worthy we are. This is similar to the more we prepare in this life the more we will be able to appreciate gazing on the Divine Presence in the afterlife.
Light and sound are related. We saw the thunder at Sinai. The sound of ram horns accompanied the sinking walls of Jericho. We must guard our speech. Say a little do a lot. We are as good as our word. Our prayers and cries are monitored. The Creator may fulfill careless words with unintended consequences as with Jacob and Rachel. The Chofetz Chaim teaches rules governing speech.
The righteous Noah had light in the ark. With one exception the atmosphere of coexistence therein was as the Messianic one. The fire at Ur could not burn Abram. At the covenant the Light passed between the parts for Abram (Genesis 15:17). The men at the door of Lot were blinded and Lot’s wife died via the light. The tents of the Sarah and Rebecca were covered by the Cloud, the lamp lasted all week, and the dough was blessed (Rashi, Gen. 24:67). Issac reaped 100 fold. The burning bush also radiated from the divine presence. The Egyptians were paralyzed in darkness but all Sons of Israel had light. The Cloud was an instrument at the splitting of the sea and in the destruction of the pursuing army.
If speech was used to bring forth water from the flint stone we would have internalized the lesson of the Recent Complex Creation that all mater exists and is managed by command of the Creator. Forced atomic reactions are not on the same level. Moses did not need to eat or drink for forty days and nights. The face of Moses shined with light. The Clouds surrounded our camp glowed with light at night. Manna sustenance coincided with this light. The Cloud filled the sanctuary for hundreds of years then the Holy Temple. On Yom Kippur the appearance of the High Priest radiated from the light. The fire in Babel could not burn Daniel’s friends. A single flask of oil filled containers (Kings II 4:2-6). On Chanukah a day measure of oil lasted 8 days. The enemies of Israel will be consumed by the light, while their equipment will provide fuel for 7 years. The Creator is without limits. There need never be any food or energy shortage. One atom contains the power to level a city. Hashem can direct the strands of energy composing the same atom to power, feed and water a city.
Hashem please bless us with everything good during this redemption process. Erect David’s fallen Sukkah booth (Amos 9:11) A Sukkah represents the clouds of glory that appeared as fire at night. Restore our days with the original light.
Knowing how Hashem governs the universe does not diminish the miracles of Creation and the Exodus. Remain sensitive to the routine miracles of everyday life. Throughout history there have been virtuous masters of Torah to guide us past false theories. By not going head to head with secular biased science leaves a void filled by base views. An opinion based on false premises obscure mans purpose in life and special relation with the Creator. This increases destructive behavior. In the Book of Joshua the reproach of Mitzrayim was removed by mass circumcision. Our reproach will be removed when we direct our hearts to serve the Creator as instructed in Torah. Do now, understanding will follow. Hesitate and gamble with your fate.
Only a restored Jewish Israel and Holy Temple enable the 613 Commandments complete performance. This will lead to the enduring open manifestation of The Creator, protection for the atmosphere, health, longevity, peace and prosperity. By that day the Creator and Sovereign of the universe will be acknowledged as One (Zechariah 14:9).
Should any point be in error it does not negate the overwhelming evidence ‘real science ends up affirming the Torah’141.
Joshua Pinchas ZTL Ben Teviah Velvel Pearlman, my brother and inspiration, was a great person, Torah scholar and practitioner.
Thank you to my family, teachers and friends from Providence, Rhode Island, and Los Angeles Communities.

16) About the author: My mother Miriam grew up in the Bronx where I would visit my grandparents Charles Akiva and Pearl Leah (Hacker) Vogel. Reminiscent of Sarah mom looks as beautiful to me now as a beautiful child. Like Moshe my namesake I burnt my tongue at a young age and had speech problems. My grandparents Israel and Ida Pearlman met at U. Michigan and used the shoe business to raise and educate 11 children. Persevering the depression with a growing family inspired my plan at age 3 to sell apples if depression recurred. Israel inculcated the importance of physical fitness, Ida a writer was a strong advocate of Jewish Israel. By age 3 I went to the Museum of Natural history, the Bronx, and Roger Williams Zoo. Like a Shepard I found solace in nature and wildlife. During nursery school I had a premonition, looking up from my swing at a loose piece of wood that promptly came down gashing my scull. This may explain my unusual thought process. I screamed all the way to the hospital. My younger sister Channa Bina’s passing on when I was six affected my family profoundly. Under the guidance of R’ Nachman Cohen, R’ Eliezer Gibber, and other notable teachers like R’ Peretz Gold, and backers Dave Hassenfeld, Malcolm Bromberg, Marc Diamond and others my dad was instrumental in developing a high level of Jewish education in Providence. Along with the many guests who came to my parents Sabbath Table we were expected to speak on the weekly Torah reading and its application today.
My older brother Joshua was righteous. From a young age he learned Torah and brought to our home its practice. A year or so later while alone playing ball 10 year old Joshua was defending us from 2 older boys and 1 my size. Reminiscent of David slaying of Goliath the single flat stone I flung ripped the ear of the bully grappling with my brother. Only we stayed at Jewish Camp Bourndale when the camp traveled during Shabbat to a sports meet. When we could participate we excelled. Lesson: Shabbos rest helps one reach their physical potential. In 4th grade I was the youngest player on our school soccer team exhibition during a minuteman game at Fenway Park. My teacher R’ Rozemerin was married at age 13. At age 13 on the Gesher Morasha summer program I mastered bargaining in the Arab Shuk with Jeremy Krause. At age 14 half of those arrested at a NYC sit down demonstration against the Soviet Union were from my school. My grandpa Charles (Akiva) Vogel had gone undercover to help expose the growing pro Axis movement the reaction to Pearl Harbor dissipated. He took me to court by subways he helped design while in the army core of engineers. The Judge was sympathetic to the cause R’ Meir Kahane spearheaded to free Soviet Jewry. Ronald Reagan completed opening the iron curtain.
From an early age my high math aptitude was used to challenge. Helping the teacher score tests, catching the bookkeeper who claimed never to be off by a penny, excepting friend Morris Marks invitation to a chess tournament and beating him in the final, solving a problem the teacher claimed was a type error and challenging the science teachers premises and logic.
We had a wild class and I went to finish 7th grade at the Norwich Hebrew Academy living with the Shafners in New London. R’ Lapides took us to the lower east side, R’ Dubovick prepped me for Bar Mitzvah Shabbat Chanukah, R’ Moshe Drazin ZTL his mentor was a great influence. My long time secular friends made themselves scarce when I confronted by a group of bullies. Later when things were about to come to a head David Katz summoned David Shafner who saved the day. Akiva Vogel, and Joe Fishbein, helped provided the high school a dormitory. Yisroel Leventhal from Boro Park, Chey Dombroff of Far Rockaway, and others were loyal friends. We learnt a lot, played a lot of ball, and had some great adventures.
At age 16 I participated on the Bnei Akiva Hachshara program. My brother Josh was completing a second year at Yeshiva Kol Torah. A memorable miracle happened for my brother while we hiked from Jerusalem to the Dead Sea. Low on energy, the sun going down, nursing the last few drops of water, off the trail, stuck on a cliff part way down the Kidron Mountains overlooking the Sea, some mountain goats reveal the way down. Thank you to all who stopped gave us drink and a ride back. I majored in the Aliya friendly field of accounting at Northeasten U. Courses in physics, logic, and finance, co-op work experience and off campus associations helped direct my growth. My MIT professor uncle Phil Mandel had me for Shabbot. While a roommate R’ Yitzcak Breidowitz broke down Maimonides principals to simple logic for me. While living at Cong. Chai Adom R’ Dovid Moscowitz taught me Talmud.
My dad tried changing things as a lawmaker. He learnt good people more then good laws make a healthy society. Striping public education of the faith based values based on Torah places our entire society at risk. After Watergate others were treating President Nixon as the plague. With R’ Baruch Korff my father founded the citizens committee for fairness to the president demonstrating gratitude for positive accomplishments such as the air lift to counter the Soviet backed attack on Israel and peace with China. As a leading delegate to the Detroit convention nominating Reagan he was instrumental helping his friend John Chafee get Bush senior the VP slot. It took both Bush and Son to be president before divine justice took down Sadam Hussein for brazenly shooting scuds at the Promised Land and payments to the families of terrorists. Despite his idealism and dedication when it came to election time the opposition would typically belittle my dad. Going from state rep to city council dad became the minority leader due in part to being one of the only republicans. In a tight 3 way race he helped the republican candidate Buddy Cianci get elected. It was a disappointment when the new mayor pushed aside loyalty and honor for political calculation jumping to the popular democrats. Private initiative and the check and balance are important parts of our system. Living with the Kramer family in Silver Spring while working for NAFC at age 18 I was reminded how shameless politicians can be. A prominent senator claimed to have voted for Israel despite Israel’s strong opposition to a bill that also included advanced fighters to Saudi Arabia. Recent Saudi violations of stipulations by basing said craft near Israel validates our concern.
My close friend Shimon Marks and I stopped in London for 2 weeks on our way to a half a year of study in Jerusalem. I was with R’ Brovender in the Novordic Yeshiva building under R’ Brook. Shimon was across the park at Ohr Samech. I went back to my brother’s friend Rav Uri in Meah Shearim. Rav Uri was on the kinder transport and came to Yerushalim pre ‘48. Fishel Fruchter and I went straight to the Kotel for Dawn prayers. The full Pesach moon lit our way as we took the scenic route atop the old city walls from Damascus Gate. Many of those attending services had gone to Yeshiva in Providence including the renowned Hanoch Teller. At my Joshua’s wedding to Elisheva Lemberger there was some good dancing before the bride. I was honored to hang up the coat of R’ Schwab.
By 19 I was working for a CPA firm able to analyze a company and studied options and futures. The price action of McDonald Douglas diverged from expectations. Unreported cost overruns were the cause. Dan Dorfman reported insider trading. I lost on the stock. I made money on the options. Taking full responsibility as the sole certified class litigant, against a formidable legal team, with the help of Attorney Morty Marks investor losses were recouped.
I continued investing after graduation turning 15,000 to 150,000. That was more then my CPA employers made. I made my investment advisor career choice. As the DJIA went below 1,000 there were many great values. Gulf Oil had an $80- book value and dropped under $40 a share. Those who heeded my advice and bought the stock cashed out within 2 years at the buy out price of $70- a share. I bought options that could have turned a million plus profit. I held out a year and gave back a lot of profit. Having married I was unable to risk more. I took the principal and remaining profits and invested them at the record high interest rates. It was an ideal time to invest in stocks, bonds and real estate. Based on the capital I had real estate had the best risk to reward ratio. I bought a 2 family for $12,000- cash. I would buy, improve then sell profitably about 50 units. I needed the cash to buy the next units and living expenses for my growing family. Those who heeded my recommendations and bought high interest rate bonds, stocks, and rental property had great appreciation. I had some cash again and began to hedge risk and speculate with futures which don’t have a time premium like options. Having checked with a Rabbi that it was OK to trade pork belly futures as long as no delivery, I lost and never traded that market again. Having done well shorting $30- crude oil I was determined to buy as much oil as possible when the price was near $10- I made an offer for a large ARCO East Providence oil storage facility. The plan was to get hedge margins, buy oil futures, and take delivery if need be till prices rebounded. The real estate market was bubbling and a Boston developer was able to outbid me. By the time he removed the tanks the savings and loan banking crisis ended his plan.
There were some ups and downs. It was difficult on my wife. We met Rav Soloveichik. It is obvious children are more precious then any investment. Under normal circumstances no good person will sacrifice their child for any $ amount. After 10 years of marriage with no prospect of more children together we parted. Things worked out for the best as she married Steve Schechter a good guy and had more children. To be closer to my children Akiva and Dena while Steve did a residency, I lived in Teaneck then moved to NYC. I worked by the WTC including by the trading desk of vision partners gaining valuable futures trading expertise. Silver was $4 an OZ and the Swiss frank close to .65 I was telling everyone who would listen to buy.
One day at the sentencing hearing of the Murderer of R’ Meir Kahane I stared down while circling a well organized Muslim Brotherhood. Having been acquitted of the actual murder the followers were emboldened to do the first trade center bombing. That’s what it took for federal charges to be brought. The photos taken by Kach, JDL or R’ Weiss that day helped ID the perpetrators. The investigation did not go deep enough as they regrouped and 9/11 resulted. Jewish blood was not cheap.
A roommate George Brieger threw a house warming Chanukah party to our 84th and Riverside flat. Notable neighbors were R’ Besser and the Stiller’s lived directly below and were duly invited. Sport highlights of the year were Sunday morning football in central park and winning the YI of Brooklyn Softball league behind pitcher Seymore Goldberg. Shabbos meals were a great chance for Kiruv. Hearing Steve Hill offer career guidance to an increasingly observant talent was keen. So was experiencing R’ Shlomo Calbach. Anon Afsi, Perry Antelman, Yisroel Goldman, Barak Haldorsen, Beryl Ostroff, Yoni Pearlman, Chaim Pinsky, Marty Saklad, David Shaffer, Baruch Shaver, Jeff Vogel, Avram Weisenberg, are some other old friends.
I was early on forecasting the contraction of stock multiples. Vindication came when the Nikkei fell from 40,000 to 8,000 later the NASDAQ fell from 5,000 to 1,500. I expect the resumption of the decline, with the S&P recently over 1,200, is imminent. The bubble had been sustained by rising real estate values, low inflation from cheap imports, artificially low interest rates enabled by Japan buying US debt to keep the yen in check, and productivity gains from corporate downsizing. High energy costs, job growth, growing world demand for limited resources, stock supply growth, slowing profits, aging baby boomers, deficits, a weakening $ and rising interest rates will contract multiples more. When someone near wanted to extend large gains in $45/share APC stock I begged they sell or at least place stop at 39. The price fell to 12 within 2 years. I started advising accumulating gold since priced below 300-, called the past years peak in bonds, rally in grains and bean sell off.
You may not want to sell your individual stocks. You do not want to risk a 50% price decline. You do not want the value of your holdings cut by a decline in the $.
