What Existed before the Universe?

Watch Video here According to the Big Bang Theory, the universe is roughly 13.7 billion years old, and all of the matter in the cosmos existed in a form smaller than a subatomic particle. This is what is known as the universe having existed at this moment in time as a “singularity.” In physics and mathematics, a singularity is a...

Serviceable Lithium-ion Batteries – A Spiritual Insight

Watch Video here Recently I read an article concerning lithium-ion batteries and the issue of environmental protection.  If one of the battery cells or components break down, the whole battery pack stops working and is discarded. This problem is the result of the throw-away nature of the battery, the design is not for serviceability and so all of the parts...

A Universal Cancer Biomarker – A Spiritual Insight

Recently there was a paper published in Nature communications titled, “Epigenetically reprogrammed methylation landscape drives the DNA self-assembly and serves as a universal cancer biomarker” (Nature Communicationsvolume 9, Article number: 4915 (2018)) that was very interesting reporting a biochemical phenomenon that allows for the detection of the early stages of cancer.  Researchers say this method of detection takes only...

A Second Layer of Information on top of our Genetic Code

Watch Video here The dictionary definition of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is “a self-replicating material present in all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier of genetic information.”  DNA is what gives us the fundamental and distinctive biological characteristics or qualities of the human body. A person’s DNA is something that is regarded as unchangeable. There...

Our best theoretical model can only explain 5% of the universe

Watch Video here Our way of looking at the universe has gradually evolved through the course of history.  This has occurred through Scientific Experiment, Observation, and through a natural selection of ideas based upon what the evidence suggests. In the course of man's attempts to explain the universe, scientists have developed various models of the Universe including the categories for...

Making Infinite Copies – The Banach-Tarski paradox – A Spiritual Implication

Watch Video here The Banach–Tarski paradox is a mathematical theorem in set-theory.  This theorem states "Given a solid ball in 3‑dimensional space, there exists a decomposition of the ball into a finite number of disjoint subsets, which can then be put back together in a different way to yield two identical copies of the original ball." The idea is if...

Transcranial optical imaging – Getting Drugs Delivered Directly to the Brain

Watch Video here Recently researchers believe they have discovered a new way to get drugs delivered directly to the brain in a research paper titled “Transcranial optical imaging reveals a pathway for optimizing the delivery of immunotherapeutics to the brain.” (https://insight.jci.org/articles/view/120922) Here the researchers utilized transcranial macroscopic imaging to noninvasively evaluate in-vivo delivery pathways of CSF fluorescent tracers. The significance...

What are the consequences of not having a Biblical World View?

Watch Video here A worldview is a framework from which we view reality and how we make sense of life and the world. It is very important to have an understanding of what this means and to get a handle on what a worldview is. An example to illustrate this is having a purely secular worldview leads to broken families...

Storing Solar Energy by Isomerization of Organic Molecules

Watch Video here I was recently reading an article titled "Macroscopic heat release in a molecular solar thermal energy storage system" (https://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlehtml/2018/ee/c8ee01011k) that is related to the idea of renewable energy storage.  This is a fascinating topic, one of great importance for our future energy needs, and is related to the idea of chemically storing sensible heat in the transformation...

American Volcanoes get a Very High threat rating from the USGS

Read an article titled “18 American Volcanoes get a Very High threat rating from the USGS” (https://www.usgs.gov/) where government scientists have classified 18 U.S. volcanoes as having a very high threat rating due to what is happening on the inside of them and in relation to their close proximity to people.  The geographical location of these volcanoes, eleven of...

Remote Control Insect Flight and what this Teaches us about Sin

The advances in in science and technology are mind boggling.  I recently read a research paper that was published back in 2009 that describes how researchers can control an insect’s flight path wirelessly via neural implants.  The research paper is titled “Remote Control Insect Flight” (https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/neuro.07.024.2009/full) and was a part of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). ...

Self-Healing, Carbon-Negative Material, Climate Change, and Trusting in God

Researchers and Engineers have been looking for new inspiring ways to solve problems using biology as the ultimate design guide. I recently read an article titled "Polymethacrylamide and Carbon Composites that Grow, Strengthen, and Self‐Repair using Ambient Carbon Dioxide Fixation" (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1002/adma.201804037) in the Advanced Materials Journal. In the new study, Chemical Engineers demonstrated how to design a material that...

Deep Space Travel, Radiation, Stress Response, and the call of God

A recently published article titled “Space radiation triggers persistent stress response, increases senescent signaling, and decreases cell migration in mouse intestine,” Santosh Kumar, et. al., https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1807522115, reports on a study to understand how deep space missions will effect the human body if men and women were sent on a trip to the planet Mars.  Researchers are worried about galactic...

Proof of concept refrigeration system uses magnetic fields and shape-shifting alloys

I was recently reading a research paper (Gottschall, T. et. al., Nature Materials 2018) titled "A multicaloric cooling cycle that exploits thermal hysteresis." The article reports on a novel method in the development of refrigeration technology. Artificial refrigeration began in the mid-1750s, and developed in the early 1800s. In 1834, the first working vapor-compression refrigeration system was built. Since...

Destroying or Sustaining Ancestral Knowledge

Recently I read an article concerning Bighorn sheep and Moose, the study said that both Bighorn sheep and Moose learn to migrate from one another.  When they die, that generational or ancestral knowledge is lost.  The article goes on to describe how in the 1800s there were many Bighorn sheep where stories describe over 1000 sheep could be readily...

How Genes and Memory Formation Effect the Battle between Sin and Righteousness

Recently I was reading a couple of very interesting articles on memory formation mechanisms.  You can read them too, see below: Learning to Read the Brain’s Temporary Records: Article Methyl marks on RNA discovered to be key to brain cell connections: Article UCLA scientists discovered how connections between brain cells are located far from the central control centers of the...

Scientists Present New Theory Explaining Why We’re the Only Humans on Earth

The topic being presented here in the article on being the only humans on Earth is based upon the theory of universal common descent (UCD), which postulates all organisms on Earth have descended by modification from a common ancestor, dubbed the "last universal common ancestor" (LUCA).  The principle of continuity holds that every step in any evolutionary pathway must...

Every Tiny Speck of Light in this Image Is a Galaxy

From the ESA/Herschel/SPIRE space science archive there is an extensive set of imaging data of the visible known universe as observed from the earth.  This article shows a zoomed-in view of about 8 percent of the entire photo width. Images like these demonstrate how incredibly small we are in the universe and allow astronomers to estimate, via extrapolation, the...

New Study Reveals We Could Be Alone in the Universe

Is this surprising the observable universe shows no signs of life? The reasons why scientists choose to search for life in the universe is based upon one's world view. A worldview comprises one's collection of presuppositions, convictions, and values from which a person tries to understand and make sense out of the world and life. Every worldview starts with presuppositions, that is, beliefs...
