A pal sent me this;
For all you scientists out there and for all the students who have had a hard time convincing these people regarding the truth of the Bible – here’s something that illustrates God’s awesome creation and shows He is still in control.
Did you know that NASA’s space programmers are busy proving that was has been called ‘myth’ in the Bible is true? Mr Harold Hill, President of the Curtis engine Company in Baltimore, and a consultant in the space programmers, relates the following incident: “One of the most amazing things that God has for us today happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at Green Belt, Maryland.
They were checking out the positions of the sun, moon and planets out in space where they would be 100, and 1000 years from now. [using the geocentric method I bet] We have to know this as we do not want a satellite to collide with any of these in its orbits [the sun's orbit, get it?]. We have to lay out the orbits in terms of the life of the satellite and where the planets will be so the whole project will not bog down.
Computer measurements and data were run back and forth over the centuries when suddenly it came to a halt, displaying a red signal, which meant that either there was something wrong with the information fed into it, or with the results as compared to the standards.
They called in the service department to check it out, and the technicians asked what was wrong. The scientists had discovered that somewhere in space in elapsed time a day was missing. Nobody seemed able to come up with a solution to the problem. Finally one of the team, a Christian, said: “You know, when I was still in Sunday School, they spoke about the sun standing still…” While his colleagues didn’t believe him, they did not have an answer either, so they said: “Show us.” He got a Bible and opened it at the book of Joshua where they found a pretty ridiculous statement for any one with ‘common sense’.
