I love the Lord above all.

Father of 4 - Married 9 years - Drummer - Runner - Design Engineer for the US Military & others.

I see patterns in everything - the fingerprints if you will of: 1 designer, 1 engineer, and 1 terrific artist

Currently reading: Bible (Always) and Paul Johnson's "Intellectuals" - philosophers rarely reach the ideals they espouse.

comment What is the “Water” of Genesis 1:2?
Jon, I love your view on this last point - very artistic. Specifically "…desolate imagery to imagery with the potential for life." Opposite’s if you will, and they abound in scripture too: Separation of Darkness - light. Lion - Lamb. Creator of all - nestled in a Mary’s womb. This is one of my favorite items in scripture, that is, the contra-patterns God weaves like a brilliant master.

comment What is the “Water” of Genesis 1:2?
Jon, “…The creation account abounds with life and water is a critical component.” Well stated - I love this answer. But the water of Genesis 1:2 has no “life” in it, for life was yet to be created.

comment Why did the tabernacle use the colors blue, purple and scarlet?
Sorry, one more point, and why I am so adamant about this: The dark Red to Purplish color of literal tainted blood is due to the removal of impurities in our blood stream – namely Carbon. Likewise, Christ blood cleanses us from our sins as he removes our shame – “…and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. (1 Jn. 1:7 -ESV)

swasheck I disagree, here's why: The sequence of Oxygen deprived blood goes into the right atrium of the heart, by way of the veins called the inferior vena cava and the superior vena cava. The oxygen depleted blood is dark red to purple in color due to carbon-dioxide binding. The blood is then propelled into the right ventricle, through the pulmonary artery, and finally to the lungs where the blood is enriched with oxygen by binding itself to Hemoglobin (the red pigment in blood) - This process strips the carbon dioxide from the Iron molecules and restores the color if you will.

Hi Mike, I agree. Sad part is, "Imagination is more important than knowledge" Albert Eistein said. Thomas Eddison was asked, "How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?" Edison replied, "I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps." Talk about using your imgination
