    There is pioneering work being done by an Australian Scientist name Dr. Barry Setterfield [a Christian man] on the well-founded implications that what physicists have traditionally thought was “the Divine Constant” the “speed of light” ( 300 000 km/s [299 792 458 meters per second] or 186 000 mi/s) is NOT constant, but actually has been proven to be slowing down.  The Biblical implications have always pointed to a universe in decline, moving towards entropy.  Most of the secular geological and biological theories require vasts amounts of time to bring about their “evolutionary” changes in form, but what if their preposterous hypothetical assertions had the proverbial rug of the “constants” pulled out from under them?

    Mankind invests in its own hubris and tries to tell God what there is by its own finite observations of the present factors of our “known” universe.  Secular man lacks the humility Job had when God reveals to him that his puny presuppositions and charges of injustice are only arising from his paltry understanding of the circumstances of the created universe and his lack of knowing God’s higher workings with regard to His plans for mankind. Check out Mariposa Aristeo’s Story Embers article on “HOW THE BOOK OF JOB TEACHES WRITERS TO CREATE REALISTIC CHRISTIAN CHARACTERS“.

    There are some very intriguing interviews with Dr. Setterfield online at … well, you can guess the prominent place for videos.
    Also, look up the Quantum Theory about Zero-Point Energy (ZPE) and the thermal implications of it in Quantum Field Theory, as it applies to the vacuum of space.

    IF the speed of light was actually faster when it was closer to the base-energy state (ZPE) then that means the stars we see in the night sky are literally “Closer than they appear” or was previously thought.  Alpha Centauri (the closest binary star system) is said to be 4.37 light-years away.  That figure is measured by the present speed of light and the distance a photon can travel at constant velocity in a single solar year’s time in a straight line.  If you have a decaying rate of that constant, the distance becomes harder to measure, unless certain assumptions can be made (i.e. the rate of decline assuming such decline is on a constant and regular slope of decay).

    What atmospheric pressures might have existed under certain implications for zero-point energy?  How might the nerves & blood-vessels in the tip of the tail of sauropod dinosaurs have enough blood pressure and synaptic response quick enough to communicate with the neuro nerves in the brain of a creature measuring roughly 20.3 meters (about 66.5 feet) in length?  If pressures were in fact different in the paleo periods, as well as the speed of light, this would allow such a creature to exist, but it up-ends prior notions of time measure and the pressures that are used to measure plant longevity and geological strata.  The fields, as it were, are now re-opened to the imagination under these implications.

    So I invite all my fellow faith-based writers out there, to investigate what you are not being told in secular education and textbooks written by atheist “educators”.

    What effect, if any, do these discoveries have in your own writings?  I welcome your thoughts and perspectives.

    Many modern teachers are nihilists. Sift what is said and measure it against biblical study.
    Here is a passage that helps me personally put things into perspective when reading science journals and textbooks.

    Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, “Life is not pleasant anymore.” … Yes, remember your Creator now while you are young, before the silver cord of life snaps and the golden bowl is broken. Don’t wait until the water jar is smashed at the spring and the pulley is broken at the well. For then the dust will return to the earth, and the spirit will return to God who gave it. “Everything is meaningless,” says the Teacher, “completely meaningless.” Keep this in mind: The Teacher was considered wise, and he taught the people everything he knew. He listened carefully to many proverbs, studying and classifying them. The Teacher sought to find just the right words to express truths clearly. The words of the wise are like cattle prods–painful but helpful. Their collected sayings are like a nail-studded stick with which a shepherd drives the sheep. But, my child, let me give you some further advice: Be careful, for writing books is endless, and much study wears you out. That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad. [Ecclesiastes 12:1, 6-14 NLT]
