and how do we know this magnetic field does not distort the light ???

I have a feeling star distance is just another to be added to the long list of "facts" they will soon be updating ..
 
Ixoye 8....My Bad Noah was 600 when the Flood came....He was 500 years old when he begot Ham, Shem, and Japheth ( Genesis 5 v 32). Noah lived 350 years after the flood. So he was 950 years old when he died. ( Genesis 9 v 28 & 29) Notice when Ham saw Noah' s nakedness in his tent, Noah put a curse on Cannan the son of Ham, The patriarch of the Arabs...Intersecting especially in today' s world where Arabs despise the Jews ( Children of Japheth...The Jews.
 
NASA
The Voyager cameras were turned off after the image of the Pale Blue Dot Valentines Day 1990. The cameras were turned off to save power and memory for the instruments expected to detect the new charged particle environment of interstellar space.

We have power to run the spacecraft and all the science instruments until 2020. At that time we start science instrument shutdown and about 2025 the last instrument will be shutdown.
As long as Voyager's nuclear batteries last, we can communicate, probably around 2025. After that there will be silence!

How does the processor and memory of Voyager I compare to the average modern smartphone?

It's 270,000 times less memory and no real processor in the modern sense.

right .. it would look something like this ..

4050 BCE Adam 4050-3120 (930 yrs)
3910 BCE Seth 3910-2998 (912 yrs)
3806 BCE Enosh 3806-2901 (905 yrs)
3707 BCE Kenan 3707-2797 (910 yrs)
3650 BCE Mahalalel 3650-2755 (895 yrs)
3566 BCE Jared 3566-2604 (962 yrs)
3415 BCE Enoch 3415-3060(^) (365 yrs)
3369 BCE Methusaleh 3369-2400 (969 yrs)
3180 BCE Lamech 3180-2403 (777 yrs)
3000 BCE Noah 3000-2050 (950 yrs)
2510 BCE Shem 2510-1910 (600 yrs)
2400 BCE - The Great Flood -
2398 BCE Apachshad 2398-1960 (438 yrs)
2376 BCE Shelah 2376-1943 (433 yrs)
2323 BCE Eber 2323-1879 (464 yrs)
2301 BCE Peleg 2301-2062 (239 yrs)
2277 BCE Reu 2277-2038 (239 yrs)
2232 BCE Serug 2232-2002 (230 yrs)
2194 BCE Nahor 2194-2046 (148 yrs)
2170 BCE Terah 2170-1965 (205 yrs)
2121 BCE Abraham 2121-1946 (175 yrs)
2006 BCE Isaac 2006-1826 (180 yrs)
 
interesting enough .. we have some discrepancies of dates between the Septuagint (285-246 bce) and the Mesoretic texts (850 ad) ..

BTW: the dates are derived by counting backwards from King David and using the dates given in the bible of years in-between him and Moses .. and also co-ordinated by a few other known dates ..

BTW: Ham is not the Patriarch of the Arabs ..
Ishmael is .. and he was half Hebrew (Abraham) and half Egyptian (Hagar) ..
thus the Arab race started there ..

Gen 16:1 Now Sarai, Abram's wife had borne him no children, and she had an Egyptian maid whose name was Hagar.

Read what God said before the Flood:
Genesis 6 v 3 " And The Lord said, my spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he is also flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years". After he stated that mankind started living lot less then when God let me Hundreds of years to populate the earth after Eden.

One other interesting verse is when God told Adam the following: Genesis 2 v 17
" But of the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil, though shalt not eat of it: for in the DAY that though eatest thereof thou shalt surely die"

Literally Adam never died the day he sinned. A " Day" to God is 1000 years
( Psalm 90 v 4/I I Peter 3 v 8)
Adam lived until he was 930 years old so he died " In The Day" God promised he would if he sinned.

Who are The Cannanites? They are Arabs/ Muslims. I agree Abraham and Hagar produced ISHMAEL...but the start of this was after the flood. and let us not forget Lot and his daughters after they escaped Sodom and Gomorrah. They committed incest with Lot and had each a son by their Father....One son is A Moabite...The second daughter had a son who is the father of Ammon ( Jordan) Genesis 19 v 31-38.
The Moabites, The Cannanites, The people of Ammon ( Jordan) are all Arabs and Muslims today. When Abraham had Ishmael with Hagar God told Abraham this child would not be the child of the promise ( Israel) however God told him he would make Ishmael a great nation ( Islam)
Genesis 21 v 13.

I doubt that very much. Some of the nearest stars to us have their distances confirmed by parallax measurements.
 

Look, I'm as open minded as the next man but you must admit that accepting that men lived for 950 years but not accepting modern theories of the universe structure is a bit rich?

Well if that's what the Word says, what else would it mean? Of course I can't comprehend it without faith. Why worry about it? Doesn't change my faith anyway. Our intellect is nothing compared to His!
God bless you and have a great day!

I worry about it because this anti-science, reality-denying version of Christianity that is young-earth creationism is a factor in driving people away from our faith, especially young people.

I also never said anything about being anti science. Not at all. But you CANNOT talk anyone into being Christian. They must be called by the Holy Spirit. We cannot talk someone into "faith" with scientific fact or sensibility. You will NEVER find PROOF. That's why is called FAITH, The Holy Spirit called me, I answered. He loved me first, now I love Him. I repented, He forgave! BEAUTIFUL! Are there things I don't understand? Of course! Does it matter to me? NO! We learn as we grow and ASK HIM FOR WISDOM. If you need proof...
Is it still faith?
God bless you

Lynn,

Biblical "flood geology", which is the topic of this thread, is typically a subset of young-earth creationism. Believing in both requires a a pretty high degree of science denialism, and an anti-science attitude is one of the main reasons young former Christians cite for leaving the faith.

I agree with the first part, but not with the second.

Evolution is treated as fact.
Evolution is a fact. We see it happen all the time, right in front of us. The theory of evolution provides a framework that explains how evolution takes place (its mechanisms, pathways, etc.).

Just like gravity is a fact (we see it happen), and the theory of gravity seeks to explain how it happens.
 
Read However What The Lord told Job, very interesting and sobering dialog: Book of Job Chapters 38-41. We know nothing unless God reveals to mankind. The same about receiving his wonderful blessings ( Read John 3 v 27).
 
If someone leaves the Faith and devotion unto The creator because of believing some man made beliefs whether proven or not....His/ Her heart was not really in being Christ like. Not saying science has not found out many things and proven them; However many of the things like " Global Warming" are " Theories" where as God knows 100% of why this or that is, or is taking place. Here is what is states, which about sums it all up:
Ecclesiastical 1 v 9: " .......And there is nothing New under the Sun". Amen.
