    The Missing Day in the Universe.

    The following account was written by Mr. Harold Hill, President of the Curtis Engine Company of USA and a consultant in the American Space Programme.

    “I think one of the most amazing things that God has for us today happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at Green Belt, Indiana. They were checking the position of the sun, moon and planets out in the space where they would be 100 years and 1,000 years for now. We have to know this in order that we do not send up a satellite and it collides with something later on, on one of its orbits. We have to know this in order that we do not of its orbits. We have to lay out the orbit in terms of the life of the satellite and where the planets will be so that the whole thing will not go wrong.

    They ran the computer measurement backwards and forwards over the centuries and it came to a halt. The computer stopped and put up a red signal, which meant there was something wrong either with the information fed into it or with the results as compared with the standards. They called in the service department to check it out and they said, “It’s perfect,” the head of the operations said, “what’s wrong?” “Well, we have found there is a day missing in space in elapsed time.” They were puzzled and there seemed no answer. Then one man on the team remembered he had been told at Sunday School of the sun standing still. They did not believe him, but as no explanation was forthcoming they asked him to get a Bible and find it, which he did, in the book of Joshua 10: 12-14. “and the sun stood still, and the moon stayed - and hasted not to go down about a whole day.” The space men said “There is the missing day.”

    Well they checked the computers going back into the time it was written and found it was close but not close enough. The elapsed time that was missing back in Joshua’s day 23 hours and 20 minutes - not a whole day. They read the Bible again and there it said about a day! These little words, in the Bible are important. But, they were still in trouble, because if you cannot account for 40 minutes you will be in trouble 100years from now. Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over in orbits.

    Then, it was that this same man, remembered somewhere in the Bible, it said that the sun went backwards. The spacemen told him, he was out of his mind, but they got out the Book and found how King Hezekiah on this death-bed was visited by the prophet Isaiah, who told him that he was going to die, and Hezekiah asked what the sign should be. “And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the Lord, that the Lord will do the thing that he hath spoken; shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees? And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees; nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees. And Isaiah cried unto the Lord, and He brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the (sun) dial of Ahaz.” 2 Kings 20 “Ten degrees is exactly 40 minutes! Twenty-three hours and twenty minutes in Joshua, plus forty minutes in 2 Kings 20 make the missing 24 hours, which they had to log, in the log book as being (The missing day in the Universe)…

    I couldn't understand a word of the above. It gave me a headache:cry:

    Still, it must be funny, and it took 10 minutes from an otherwise boring day, so thanks:BigGrin:

    This is a motorhoming site, not a platform for promoting any faith, religion or politics, debate if you have too but not blaytent preaching, we just don't need it John.
    These are my personal thoughts on nothing to do with the management.

    Quite true thats why I made it quite clear. My own thoughts and no one else's. Like you I am entitled to think. Are you a motorhomer I wonder Mmmmmmmmmmmmm
    Crinthians 13 First Epistle to the Corinthians is on the subject of love, principally the love that Christians should have for everyone. However I prefer to preach free love to all by all.

    just as a wild guess, do you think maybe Corinthians is just an alias for John Tanner, since Corinthians only just joined and has given no details?

    After the holy christian rant against homosexuals and now this post, possibly there is a fear of being banned?

    Everyone is entitled to their views, but there is a time and a place...

    hi,Roger was about computers, the point that I was trying to make, was how man`s knowledge as increased, THEY said, it`s impossible, machines can not fly, that is what they told the WRIGHT BROTHERS. someone made a remark, but, that was in answer to WHAT A BANKER, IN THE BELLY LOCKER forum. this was on, to do with COMPUTERS. Also I have had a chat with you, and others, also someone said, maybe I`m alias? which I`m not. ANYWAY take care. john n tanner.
