The Boy Who Cried Wolf (Part 2)

Later he saw a REAL wolf prowling about his flock. Alarmed, he leaped to his feet and sang out as loudly as he could "Wolf! Wolf!"

But the villagers thought he was trying to fool them again so they didn't come.

At sunset, everyone wondered why the shepherd boy hadn't returned to the village with their sheep.

They went up the hill to find the boy. They found him weeping.

"There really was a wolf here! The flock has scattered! I cried out,"Wolf! Why didn't you come?"

An old man tried to comfort the boy as they walked back to the village.

"We'll help you look for the lost sheep in the morning," he said, putting his arm on the boy, "Nobody believes a liar...even when he is telling the truth!"

The Boy Who Cried Wolf (Part 1)

There once was a shepherd boy who was bored as he sat on the hillside watching the village sheep.

To amuse himself he took a great breath and sang out, "Wolf! Wolf! The wolf is chasing the sheep!"

The villagers came running up the hill to help the boy drive the wolf away. But when they arrived at the top of the hill, they found no wolf. The boy laughed at the sight of their angry faces.

"Don't cry 'wolf', shepherd boy," said the villagers "when there is no wolf!" They went grumbling back down the hill.

Later the boy sang out again, "Wolf! Wolf! The wolf is chasing the sheep!"

To his naughty delight, he watched the villagers run up the hill to help him drive the wolf away.

When the villagers saw no wolf they sternly said, "Save your frightened song for when there is really something wrong! Don't cry 'wolf' when there is NO wolf!"

But the boy just grinned and watched them go grumbling down the hill once more.

Did you know that a smile is better than a frown? probably did. The fact is, it takes 17 muscles to smile and 43 to frown. It also takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body - the heart. There are more benefits of a smile than we can ever know!

It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. It makes you special in your own way. Anytime, a smile may bring you friendship, influence, beauty, goodwill, and joy. To some it means love, acceptance, forgiveness, appreciation, and approval.

A smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something of no value to anyone until it is given away. Wherever you go, remember to wear that happy, smiley face. You'll never know the blessings it will bring your way.

Fossil fun...

Yesterday, a pastor came to our church to preach. His name is Timothy Standish. He is a scientist at Geo-Science Research Institute in Loma Linda University. During church service he preached on the topic of "What makes God God?" He said that God makes God God because He created us and all living things on Earth.

Now, after church, everybody had lunch and went back to church to attend a seminar Mr. Timothy was holding. At the seminar he explained The Door to the Universe and why evolution is cannot possibly open it. He explained that everything could not have happened by random chance. Everything is so complex that someone really intelligent must have made them all. I can't give you every detail cause I forgot most of it. What I really wanted to show you today is this:

After the seminar, he invited to go up front and look at some of the fossils he brought with him. The pictures above is a fossilized Ammonite. It supposedly looked like this.

Here's some more.

This one's a Trilobite, meaning "three lobes". Because they are divided into three.

I think you probably know this one...

This is a Brachiopod. It looks like a clam but instead of being divided horizontally, they are divided vertically.

This fossil is from a whale. I think it's like their hearing device. It is located in the upper part of the jaw to feel vibrations.

Can you guess what this is?

The Bombardier Beetle

Did you know that a bombardier beetle can blast a hot, foul-smelling gas to protect itself?

The bombardier beetle's blast spews from two pipelike structures in its tail. The blast of hot gases reaches a temterature of 100 degrees Celsius (212 degress Fahrenheit). The beetle produces two chemicals that, when mixed together, cause a violent explosion. You might ask, "What keeps the beetle from blowing itself up?" The beetle produces another substance that inhibits the chemical reaction. The two chemicals and the inhibitor are stored in special tanks without the danger of exploding. When a predator sneaks up behind it, the beetle releases the three chemicals into its tail tubes. A fourth substance, called anti-inhibitor, acts to block the inhibitor, and the chemicals explode from the cannon.

A bombardier beetle

Evolutionists claim that the bombardier beetle and all other insects evolved gradually over millions of years from less complex animal forms. These changes supposedly happened to make the animal more fit to survive. Can you imagine the bombardier beetle evolving over millions of years by a series of accidents? First, a beetle would have to develop the two explosive chemicals. Once it developed the two chemicals, it would have blown itself up because it would not know it needed an inhibitor. Can you imagine countless beetles blowing themselves up for thousands of years trying to find a way to control their explosive chemicals? The beetles would have blown themselves into extinction long before a controlling substance evolved.

Let's suppose that some beetles did finally manage to develop the inhibitor. Then, when the beetle tried to blast the predator, nothing would have happened, and the poor beetle would have been gobbled up by the predator. You see, because it had not yet developed the anti-inhibitor, the beetles would have been eaten into extinction. A beetle would also have had to develop the cannon tubes and the sense to know just when to mix the chemicals. In no way can the complexity of the bombardier beetle be explained as a result of accidental, gradual evolutionary change. All the steps necessary for the "fire-bombing" process could not have developed one at a time over millions of years. God created the bombardier beetle with its "fire-bombing" capabilities absolutely complete and functional.

In writing of the possibilities of evolution by gradual change, Sir Fred Hoyle wrote, " The chance that higher life-forms have emerged in this way is comparable with the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junkyard might assemble the Boeing 747 from the materials therein.

A lizard's head...or at least I think so!

Yesterday afternoon, while I was looking at the sky, I saw a shape of something that looked like a head of a lizard. A really BIG lizard. Here it is.

Believe it or not...

Did you know that there is an artist that makes pictures using packing tape?

Hehe...yup! It's packing tape!

Mark Khaisman creates these gorgeous portraits with packing tape. Here's some of his artwork

I apologize for my absence. I keep forgetting about my blog. But I will try my best to remember and to keep posting new things.
