The Reformation principle of “Sola Scriptura,” or the Bible alone, is contradicted by the Copernican Principle, or the idea that earth is not central in the universe. A logically necessary corollary of the Copernican Principle is the “Principle of Mediocrity,” which is stated as “there is nothing special about the earth.” This is a philosophical contradiction of the Bible. The word “earth” is found in the King James Bible 987 times, in 907 verses. The earth is the focus of the Bible, not some arbitrary point in space. Unthinking acceptance of the Copernican Principle is so common in the modern world that nobody analyzes what it means. Any Reformed church member who suggests that the Copernican Principle is wrong is considered ignorant. Yet somehow, his church’s position is that the Reformation principle of Sola Scriptura is true, and the Reformation is not considered ignorant.
Most of the miracles of Jesus in the Bible involve the casting out of devils. I observe that people dismiss the devils that Jesus casts out, as some kind of psychological phenomenon that primitive people like those of Jesus’ day attributed to personal beings, but were just impersonal forces coming from minds that were out of order.
Yet, I see that people today have no way of dealing with beings like the various manlike creatures that some see, and who interact with them, and even abduct them. The modern scientific mind does not know what to do with them, except dismiss them as creations of a disordered mind. They can dismiss them as long as they happen to someone else, but more and more people are personally experiencing these creatures. Some skeptical minds who experience the beings try to make them fit into the mold of Bigfoot, which they insist is only an unknown species of ape that is really good at hiding.
Jack Parsons, the founder of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, rocket scientist and devil worshipper. Since so many scientists think that science requires atheism, which has no moral standards, why not worship devils if it helps you reach the moon?
The irony here is just breathtaking. James White is the most outspoken opponent of the idea that the King James Bible, or any other translation for that matter, can be trusted as final authority. He is an advocate of the idea of the nonexistent original autographs only as final authority, and each person has to determine what they said for himself, or even better, trust James White to tell him.
Lt. Col. Percival Fawcett was a famous explorer who is said to have been in contact with entities like Bashar, channeled by Daryl Anka, who said they were the spirits of ancient natives, and promised to lead him to a fabulous lost city in the Amazon jungle. He was never seen again, and a hundred people died searching for him or his remains.
From The Guardian–
“According to previously hidden private papers, it appears that Fawcett had no intention of ever returning to Britain and, perhaps lured by a native she-god or spirit guide whose beautiful image haunts the family archive, he planned instead to set up a commune in the jungle, based on a bizarre cult.”
In this linked video, a man with a position of responsibility in his community recalls a visit by a strange being that changed his life, and not altogether for the best. He goes into great detail. For those who do not have the time to listen, in summary, when he is out driving his new muscle car, he is approached in a curve by a large, upright walking being with a dog’s head which appears to be interested in eating him, and almost gets in the car with him, even though he is moving at the time.
