Ray Comfort’s “180 movie”

Here is a movie most everyone needs to see. Warning, there is graphic content.

Video

It is surprising to see just how many people do not know history and don’t know who Hitler was. And also to see how many actually approved of what he did. If you think you would like to use this video as a evangelistic tool, the video below will tell you how you can get each copy for a buck a piece to pass around.

180 Movie

At 4 weeks (1st Month):
• Your baby's brain and spinal cord have begun to form.
• The heart begins to form.
• Arm and leg buds appear.
• Your baby is now an embryo and one-fifth of an inch long.

At 8 weeks (2nd Month):
• All major organs and external body structures have begun to form.
• Your baby's heart beats with a regular rhythm.
• The arms and legs grow longer, and fingers and toes have begun to form.
• The sex organs begin to form.
• The eyes have moved forward on the face and eyelids have formed.
• The umbilical cord is clearly visible.
• At the end of 8 weeks, your baby is a fetus and looks more like a human. Your baby is nearly 1 inch long and weighs less than 1/8 of an ounce.

At 12 weeks (3rd Month):
• The nerves and muscles begin to work together. Your baby can make a fist.
• Eyelids close to protect the developing eyes. They will not open again until the 28th week.
• Head growth has slowed, and your baby is much longer. Now, at about 3 inches long, your baby weighs almost an ounce.

At 16 weeks (4th Month):
• The external sex organs show if your baby is a boy or girl. A woman who has an ultrasound in the second trimester or later might be able to find out the baby's sex.
• Muscle tissue and bone continue to form, creating a more complete skeleton.
• Skin begins to form. You can nearly see through it.
• Meconium develops in your baby's intestinal tract. This will be your baby's first bowel movement.
• Your baby makes sucking motions with the mouth (sucking reflex).
• Your baby reaches a length of about 4 to 5 inches and weighs almost 3 ounces.

At 20 weeks (5th Month):
• Your baby is more active. You might feel slight fluttering.
• Your baby is covered by fine, downy hair called lanugo and a waxy coating called vernix. This protects the forming skin underneath.
• Eyebrows, eyelashes, fingernails, and toenails have formed. Your baby can even scratch itself.
• Your baby can hear and swallow.
• Now halfway through your pregnancy, your baby is about 6 inches long and weighs about 9 ounces.

At 24 weeks (6th Month):
• Bone marrow begins to make blood cells.
• Taste buds form on your baby's tongue.
• Footprints and fingerprints have formed.
• Real hair begins to grow on your baby's head.
• The lungs are formed, but do not work.
• The hand and startle reflex develop.
• Your baby sleeps and wakes regularly.
• If your baby is a boy, his testicles begin to move from the abdomen into the scrotum. If your baby is a girl, her uterus and ovaries are in place, and a lifetime supply of eggs have formed in the ovaries.
• Your baby stores fat and has gained quite a bit of weight. Now at about 12 inches long, your baby weighs about 1½ pounds.

At 32 weeks (7th Month):
• Your baby's bones are fully formed, but still soft.
• Your baby's kicks and jabs are forceful.
• The eyes can open and close and sense changes in light.
• Lungs are not fully formed, but practice "breathing" movements occur.
• Your baby's body begins to store vital minerals, such as iron and calcium.
• Lanugo begins to fall off.
• Your baby is gaining weight quickly, about one-half pound a week. Now, your baby is about 15 to 17 inches long and weighs about 3 to 3 3⁄4 pounds

At 36 weeks (8th Month):
• The protective waxy coating called vernix gets thicker.
• Body fat increases. Your baby is getting bigger and bigger and has less space to move around. Movements are less forceful, but you will feel stretches and wiggles.
• Your baby is about 16 to 19 inches long and weighs about 6 to 6½ pounds.

Weeks 37-40 (up to delivery):
• By the end of 37 weeks, your baby is considered full term. Your baby's organs are ready to function on their own.
• As you near your due date, your baby may turn into a head-down position for birth. Most babies "present" head down.
• At birth, your baby may weigh somewhere between 6 pounds 2 ounces and 9 pounds 2 ounces and be 19 to 21 inches long. Most full-term babies fall within these ranges. But healthy babies come in many different sizes.

I am 100 percent against abortion - but this statement is not accurate. A child needs a mother’s love to grow and thrive and become an emotionally healthy being - without it trauma and fear will occur. So being alive is not all that an unborn child would ask for.

Yes.

Taking the life of another willfully is violation of God's 6th law.

☦️☦️☦️ Lord Jesus please make abortions illegal. Amen

Our opinions in the end won't matter...how does God view killing or murder or homicide? By what ever name it us called. it is willfully done and God will be the final judge. Thou shalt not kill.

My hesitation is in this particular case the offender is sometimes a vulnerable person (the mother) who is being told it’s best for her baby.....being told it isn’t a baby...ect.

I am a Christian, I call it murder.

It's murder.

So called Women's Rights vs. Baby's rights. Many women have been brainwashed that it's a woman's right. HERE'S THE TRUTH: A FETUS IS A LIVING THING. IT IS A BABY. IT HAS HEARTBEAT. AND GUESS WHAT, IT CAN FEEL AND IT CAN HEAR ITS MOTHER'S FEELINGS AND VOICE. THE VERY FIRST ORGAN THAT DEVELOPS IS THE HEART. THE HEART. THE HEART. it's not even the brain. if you are not ready to have a baby, don't engage in activities that leads to pregnancy. or use every precaution to avoid an unintended pregnancy. contraceptives are not evil. there is no life yet that was created. Abortion is MURDER. Worse, pre-meditated ending of life. it's termed as PARRICIDE. there is very little difference.

It is Murder!!! it is murder plain and true murder of inocent and helpless human being.

I hate porn

Lucas Romero

Lust is a thought. Its meaningless unless acted upon. So control yourself and theres no problem.

It NEVER gets satisfied !!!

Love is fulfilling and satisfying! Abhor lust!

Lust is perfectly natural, so is sex and masturbation.

Don't all (or at least most) sexual organisms experience lust? Doesn't it drive us to reproduce? Isn't it at least partially responsible for us being here?

.

“For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, lusting & coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.—Jesus

Those that belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts.

Well said, brother!

You lust after sinners, you never seem full.

The last major fleshly thing I struggle to get free from.

Thats the truth!

It is best not to waste your time on people who are not remotely interested in salvation. It's Satan's trick to waste your time with people who have become professionals at doing just that. Why? So you won't use your time with those who are interested.

When Jesus met the rich man, he tested him to see if he was truly interested. Jesus told him that in order to follow he must sell everything he has, give it to the poor, then come follow him. Why? Jesus knew that the man's money was his god and therefore would always be an issue with him staying on the straight and narrow.

Money may not be an atheist's issue, but sin is. Sin brings pleasures of the flesh and therefore their sin and flesh become their gods. So to change is to trade one god for another and they are not willing to do that. Instead they prefer a god that will allow the other god to exist. Like a soldier who is unwilling to commit to either side, he becomes a traitor to both sides.

Example: During the civil war there was a soldier who refuse to pick sides. So he wore the pants of one side, and the shirt of the other. And when they found his body, he had been shot in the front and back because neither side could trust him.

Mt 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Choose today whom you will serve. ~ Issac

Juno spacecraft: Io is young

The age of the universe is an important topic in origins. If the universe is “young,” then the creation model is supported. There are many physical indicators that the universe is young, including the evidence of “hot moons.”

Nasa identifies Jupiter’s moon Io as “the most volcanically active world in the solar system.” Io has “hundreds of volcanoes, some erupting lava fountains dozens of miles (or kilometers) high.” “Io even has lakes of molten silicate lava on its surface.” “Io’s volcanoes are at times so powerful that they are seen with large telescopes on Earth.”

The following Speaking of Science article by David Coppedge appeared in Creation Matters, Vol. 24, No.1, January/February 2019.

A different spacecraft that is at Jupiter, named Juno (see Coppedge, 2017 [5]), imaged a volcanic plume on the little moon Io that stands out prominently on the speck of image taken 186,000 miles away, reports Space.com.[6] This must have been a major eruption to be visible from that far. Meghan Bartels says, “The activity is spurred by Jupiter’s massive gravity tugging at the moon,” but she fails to mention whether that kind of dynamic activity could continue for 4.5 billion years. Secular reporters usually fail to connect the dots. This may be on purpose. They will make contradictory statements in isolation so that the public doesn’t see the trick. The quote above about Io is a prime example: on the one hand, Jupiter causes Io to erupt (but no mention of age). On the other hand, the Jupiter system is alleged to be 4.5 billion years old (but no mention of the activity). Critical thinkers have to connect those two statements to see the age problem, because the media that is committed to millions/billions-of-years thinking will never do it for you.

righteous.

specifically

Amen!

If only “he” could hear the pleas of the parents of the millions of children who starve to death around the world every year.😕

If he hears prayer then why do over 11 million children under the age of 5 die EVERY YEAR?.

Any evidence to back up that claim? Anyway we can falsifiably test this claim?

Another empty claim?

Which god? There’s literally thousands throughout mankind’s history.

So he does not especially hear sounds that are not penitent prayers? Is that because he chooses not to, or is unable to as easily?

We have aid organisations for a reason. As prayer doesn't work, aid organisations/human efforts work. If left to prayer of any penitent person it would still have no effect on the situation.

Sounds nice, but not scriptural. God hear all the prayers of the faithful. Penitent, thankful, intercession. There is no ranking. God hears them all equally

We are so grateful! ♥️

So He hears them and then decides to not help people who are suffering. Is that part of the wonderful truth?

Prayer is communicating with a listening God.

Praying is communicating with a listening God.

He also hears the cried of the broken. He is a God of love...not someone you fear and accept for the fire insurance. But you can't make big bucks preaching grace and not fear.

He is good

Majority of aid organizations are CHRISTian based, and dependent on prayer.

Gods Word is very alive and very True, He showed it to me.

How many of the prophets in the Bible were killed because the people rejected God's word? I hope everyone is reading through the Bible this year. It's not to late to start a 1 year plan. It has the power to change your life.

The light of the gospel sheds light on the darkness of sin.

Amen and Amen!!

Amen 🙏

I just dropped a note to a sister in Christ. When witnessing to Jews I try to only use the Old Testament for as long as possible. But it seems like the more I use Jeremiah or Ezekiel or even the Torah then I am accused of being a Christian. Is this not ironic or self condemning or something like that? I am not even sure of which term to use but I am baffled. But I will stick to sharing the Tanakh with those Israelis in the hope of making them jealous to search out the word of God for themselves. I love what Jacob Prasch says about Jesus being the 'word of God' in print and Jesus being the 'word of God made flesh.' I hope I quoted him properly but it is an exciting time we live in.

Amen

Great job, Chad! You did a most excellent job dismantling their Orwellian doublespeak!!! A woman’s choice?! That term is superfluous; very misleading. Aside from leftist, hedonistic celebrities, I understand that many women are coerced, wrongly persuaded, misled, etc.......so could the verbiage be changed to a woman’s delusion.

Original Proteins Found in Fossil Sea Turtle, Part 2

Original biomolecules are powerful evidence for a Biblical age of the Earth.

The following Speaking of Science article by David Coppedge appeared in Creation Matters, Vol. 22, No. 6, November/December 2017.

The open-access paper, published October 17 in Nature Scientific Reports,[2] calls the specimen “arguably one of the best preserved juvenile fossil sea turtles on record.” Traces of soft tissue were preserved “with great fidelity,” the paper says. What was found was original, unmineralized material.

“Here we show that the extraordinary preservation of the type of T. Danica goes beyond gross morphology to include ultrastructural details and labile molecular components of the once-living animal. Haemoglobin-derived compounds, eumelanic pigments and proteinaceous materials retaining the immunological characteristics of sauropsid­specific β­keratin and tropomyosin were detected in tissues containing remnant melanosomes and decayed keratin plates. The preserved organics represent condensed remains of the cornified epidermis and, likely also, deeper anatomical features, and provide direct chemical evidence that adaptive melanism — a biological means used by extant sea turtle hatchlings to elevate metabolic and growth rates — had evolved 54 million years ago.

The evolutionary speculation and dates are not derived from the observations. It’s important to recall that until recently, no one expected original proteins to survive a hundred thousand years, let alone millions. So how do the researchers explain this “extraordinary preservation” of material in this fossil labeled MHM-K2, that should be long gone?

“We hypothesise that calcium ions (and other trace elements) adsorbed onto the surface of the carcass during the microbially mediated formation of the calcareous concretion in which MHM-K2 was found. Mild geothermal conditions might then have limited further breakdown of the stabilised organics. Haemoglobin also imparts tissue fixation by iron-catalysed free radical reactions and/or inhibition of bacterial growth …,possibly contributing to preservation of anatomical features deeper than the cornified epidermis. Blood breakdown products released from erythrocytes during hemolysis can seep into surrounding tissues, causing a reddish-brown discolouration. Impregnation by haemoglobin-derived compounds has been recorded not only in bones, but also in scales and teeth. Consequently, it is possible that the outer integument was infiltrated by blood residues diffusing from underlying (and now almost completely degraded) dermal or deeper tissues sometime during the early stages of decomposition of MHM-K2. Detection of haemoglobin- and tropomyosin-derived compounds supports this possibility.

The language is cautious, because they can only suggest “possibilities” that “might” explain the preservation. Proteins, however, are delicate molecules subject to thermal breakdown. Stabilizing processes, even if plausible, cannot last indefinitely. But for tens of millions of years? Mark Armitage, who has recovered and analyzed dinosaur soft tissue himself, strongly disputes the ability of blood-derived iron to stabilize soft tissues.

Much of the paper sidesteps this important question by speculating about when “adaptive melanism” evolved. But really, does the fossil look any “less evolved” than the living turtle? Why do they give it a different scientific name when it is virtually identical? Did the hatchling really fossilize that long ago?

Since dinosaur soft tissues and proteins have been found twice as old as those in this sea turtle, long-age evolutionists are panicking. They are scrambling to downplay the findings or pretending soft tissue is exciting because it can shed light on evolution. These are distractions from the danger their worldview is in.

The Darwin hot-air balloon can only hold a finite number of fossils with soft tissue before it comes crashing to the ground. Keep piling them up in the gondola. And turn on those video cams, everyone! Let the public see the collapse.

Detection of haemoglobin- and tropomyosin-derived compounds supports this possibility. 

The language is cautious, because they can only suggest “possibilities” that “might” explain the preservation. Proteins, however, are delicate molecules subject to thermal breakdown. Stabilizing processes, even if plausible, cannot last indefinitely. But for tens of millions of years? Mark Armitage, who has recovered and analyzed dinosaur soft tissue himself, strongly disputes the ability of blood-derived iron to stabilize soft tissues. 

Much of the paper sidesteps this important question by speculating about when “adaptive melanism” evolved. But really, does the fossil look any “less evolved” than the living turtle? Why do they give it a different scientific name when it is virtually identical? Did the hatchling really fossilize that long ago? 

Since dinosaur soft tissues and proteins have been found twice as old as those in this sea turtle, long-age evolutionists are panicking. They are scrambling to downplay the findings or pretending soft tissue is exciting because it can shed light on evolution. These are distractions from the danger their worldview is in. 

The Darwin hot-air balloon can only hold a finite number of fossils with soft tissue before it comes crashing to the ground. Keep piling them up in the gondola. And turn on those video cams, everyone! Let the public see the collapse.
