Thank you for your interest in our web distributed notes from our weekly bible studies. Some content had to be removed from these slides for copyright purposes, and thus the slides by themselves can be difficult to follow without the original animation sequences, and accompanying notes from the actual study, but we pray that you will still find them useful. You may send any questions to myself at email@example.com and I will try and get answers back to you in a timely manner. You may re-use these slides in your own bible studies, both personal and public, and arrangements can be made for accompanying notes and original slide presentations once copyright issues have been resolved. May God bless your effort, and may you grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Pastor Jerry Eyers Quinn River Baptist Fellowship www.qrbf.org
Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Luk 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. As we get close to the return of Jesus, are we getting close to how things existed in the days of Noah, not only spiritually, but also physically? Part 1: What were the times like technologically; are we close? Part 2: What were the times like sociologically; the coming lie Pre-exilic Paleo-Hebrew

We are going to start tonight with a couple of questions: As a Christian, would your faith become shaky, or how would you respond to the critics who denies that the biblical account of creation is true, if the following were to happen: One of the very popular theories right now is that “aliens” planted life on this planet, that God didn’t create life here. Evolution is embracing this through the “Intelligent design” stance, and it is the primary idea behind the current “New Age” philosophy. The so called “Pam-Spermia” theory. They were able to provide absolute, concrete, scientific evidential proof of prior civilizational existence on the Moon, Mars, or one of the other bodies in our solar system? They were able to provide absolute, concrete, scientific evidential proof of the existence of life on the Moon, Mars, or one of the other bodies in our solar system? They were able to provide absolute, concrete, scientific evidential proof of extraterrestrial space craft, visitors, or communications?
The “Raplin” Icemaker. This is a copy of the patent filed in 1850 by Mr. Raplin for his icemaker. The patent application states that the design of the icemaker has been around for thousands of years but his design is unique and deserves a patent because it enables the common man to make his own ice, where as the existing designs required external power. The patent office agreed and gave Mr. Raplin a patent (number 8080) on his icemaker. Mr. Raplin turned out to be a bad businessman, and couldn’t bring his icemaker to market successfully. The modern refrigerator as we know it didn’t appear until 1876, where German inventor Carl Paul Gottfried von Linde succeeded in making the unit self powered, and portable. He obtained his patent (number 727,650 (US) issued May 12, 1903) due to the criteria “Modern prototype. First practical.”
The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project http://www.antikythera-mechanism.gr/ In 1900 a group of sponge divers blown off course in the Mediterranean discovered an Ancient Greek shipwreck dating from around 150 BC. Lying unnoticed for months amongst their hard-won haul was what appeared to be a formless lump of corroded rock, which turned out to be the most stunning scientific artifact we have from antiquity. For more than a century this 'Antikythera mechanism' puzzled academics, but now, more than 2000 years after the device was lost at sea, scientists have started to piece together its intricate workings. Unmatched in complexity for 1000 years, it was able to predict eclipses and track the paths of the Sun and the Moon through the zodiac, and probably even showed ancient astronomers the movements of the five known planets. The digital radiographs of all the known remaining fragments of the Antikythera Mechanism that were acquired by X-Tek Systems using their BladeRunner System are available for viewing and download on the website of Shaw Inspection Systems. With the new results and the latest gearing diagram from the Antikythera Mechanism Research Project, new models are being built by other researchers, with some being working models. Called the first analog computer, and containing more than 82 gears, the extremely precise manufacturing far exceeds known manufacturing methods of the time, with the teeth formed through precise equilateral triangles. When a date was entered via a crank, the mechanism calculated the exact position of the Sun, Moon, and other astronomical information such as the location of other planets. Since the purpose was to position astronomical bodies with respect to the point of reference to the observer's position on the surface of the Earth, the device had the ability to specify the observers position on the Earth, and was based on the spherical, geocentric model. The dials displayed the position of the Sun, Moon, and planets (including the “non-naked-eye” planets), the position in the zodiac, calculated the date (including leap years, which weren’t introduced into a historical calendar until 150 years later), accurately calculated eclipses, ocean tides, and there was even a dial dedicated to the four-year Olympiad Cycle of athletic games in ancient Greece. There are mounting point on the device for dials that scientist still have no idea what they were for.
IBM 701 Defense Computer, 1952 – Columbia University The “WILLIAMS PETRADOX” The circumstances of my discovery: I found my Rock in a rural area, at least 25 feet from the nearest trail. The immediate ground was undisturbed. I was hiking in shorts. I rashly thought that the best way of reaching that area was to pass between the bushes. However, when I tried, the bushes began to painfully poke and scratch my legs. To get through, I vigorously shuffled my feet and stumbled out onto the other side. Once on the other side, I looked down at my ankles to inspect the damage, and then noticed my rock a few inches from my heel. The bushes were fairly large, and of a species that I believe lives for many decades. Once I cleared away the loose dirt and roots, I found that my Rock was encased in a hard layer of dried mud or clay. I later spent hours scraping, brushing, probing and washing away the mud/clay to get a clear view of my Rock and its component. My Rock's material is solid natural quartz and feldspar granite - not an accretion, concretion or pumice - does not contain any resins, cements, glues, limestone, mortar, or other non-granite binding agents - is very hard, is estimated to be at least 100,000 years old, and has embedded in it an electrical-like tube component. It's embedded component's pins are made of some kind of electrically conductive material and are of steel-like appearance. The component base is a whitish ceramic. Using a Spec-Tec Blacklight Unit (Model HD-1, Spectrum Technologies), "L" setting (longwave), the ceramic portion appears to fluorescence slightly along the rim.
Genesis 6 Gen 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. Gen 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. Greek Legends: Ancient Greek mythology states that the sons of Uranus, god of heaven, came down and had children with women. They were called the Titans. They rebelled against their father Uranus, and after a prolonged combat with his son Zeus, they were thrown out of heaven and confined to Tartarus. During the conflict, the Titans had offspring with men, resulting in Hercules, Chimera (part lion, part goat, part snake), Cyclopes, Medusa, Echidna (half woman/half snake), Gorgons, Giants, Centaurs (half horse, half man), etc. These were the demi-gods, half god/half men, and were always depicted as being larger than natural man. “During the scouting expedition that followed, the party chanced upon an enormous bone, which the surgeon pronounced the femur of a human body. Will understood the Indian tongues well enough and he related the Sioux legend of the flood. It was taught by the wise men of this tribe that the earth was originally peopled by giants, who were fully three times the size of modern men. They were so swift and powerful that they could run alongside a buffalo, take the animal under one arm, and tear off a leg, and eat it as they ran. So vainglorious were they because of their own size and strength that they denied the existence of the Creator. When it lighted, they proclaimed their superiority to the lightning; when it thundered, they laughed. This displeased the Great Spirit, and to rebuke their arrogance he sent a great rain upon the earth. The valleys filled with water, and the giants retreated to the hills. The water crept up the hills, and the giants sought safety on the highest mountains. Still the rain continued, the waters rose, and the giants, having no other refuge, were drowned. The Great Spirit profited by his former mistake. When the waters subsided, he made a new race of men, but he made them smaller and less strong. This tradition has been handed down from Sioux father to Sioux son since earliest ages. It shows, at least, as the legends of all races do, that the story of the Deluge is history common to all the world.”“Buffalo” Bill Cody
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” Jude 6-7 “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;” 2 Peter 2:4-6 [Chapter 6] And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.' And Semjaza (or “Sheumais” which means “supplanter”), who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.' And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.' Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz, their leader, Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, Asael, Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel. These are their chiefs of tens. And all the others together with them took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself, and they began to go in unto them and to defile themselves with them, and they taught them charms and enchantments, and the cutting of roots, and made them acquainted with plants (Greek: pharmekia). And they became pregnant, and they bare great giants, whose height was three thousand ells: Who consumed all the acquisitions of men. And when men could no longer sustain them, the giants turned against them and devoured mankind. And they began to sin against birds, and beasts, and reptiles, and fish, and to devour one another's flesh, and drink the blood. Then the earth laid accusation against the lawless ones.

Gen 6:9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
In the earliest known period Sumer was divided into several independent city-states, whose limits were defined by canals and boundary stones. Each was centered on a temple dedicated to the patron god or goddess of the city and ruled over by a priest or king, who was intimately tied to the city's religious rites. Some of the major cities included Eridu, Kish, Lagash, Uruk, Ur, and Nippur. The first settlement in southern Mesopotamia was Eridu. The Sumerians claimed that their civilization had been brought, fully formed, to the city of Eridu by their god Enki and by his advisor Abgallu (from ab=water, gal=big, lu=man). The first people at Eridu brought with them the Samarran culture from northern Mesopotamia (Modern day Turkey where Noah’s Ark has been found, along with the “village of the eight”) and are identified with the Ubaid period of Sumerian history. The first rulers were said to be giants, descended from the gods and placed in position of power by the gods. One attribute mentioned over and over in the writings and carvings is the ability of the gods (and some of these kings) to use flying chariots, or the ability to fly.
Ancient Sumerian and Chaldean carvings The Hakatha (Laws of the Babylonians) states quite unambiguously: “The privilege of operating a flying machine is great. The knowledge of flight is among the most ancient of our inheritances. A gift from 'those from upon high'. We received it from them as a means of saving many lives.” More fantastic still is the information given in the ancient Chaldean work, The Sifrala, which contains over one hundred pages of technical details on building a flying machine. It contains words which translate as graphite rod, copper coils, crystal indicator, vibrating spheres, stable angles, etc.
The Vaimanika Sastra (800 B.C) has eight chapters with diagrams, describing how to fly and operate the aircraft. It is a pilots manual for flying the aircraft and includes details such as avoiding lightning storms, turbulent air, and how to switch from the solar engine to the anti gravity engine mid flight without having to land first. It describes three types of aircraft, including apparatuses that could neither catch on fire nor break. It also mentions 31 essential parts of these vehicles and 16 materials from which they are constructed, which absorb light and heat; for which reason they were considered suitable for the construction of Vimanas. This document has been translated into English and is available by writing the publisher: VYMAANIDASHAASTRA AERONAUTICS by Maharishi Bharadwaaja, translated into English and edited, printed and published by Mr. G. R. Josyer, Mysore, India, 1979 According to ancient Indian texts, the people had flying machines which were called "Vimanas." The ancient Indian epics describe Vimanas as a double-deck, circular aircraft with portholes and a dome. They flew with the "speed of the wind" and gave forth a "melodious sound." There were at least four different types of Vimanas; some saucer shaped, others like long cylinders ("cigar shaped airships"). The ancient Indian texts on Vimanas are so numerous, it would take volumes to relate what they had to say. The ancient Indians, who manufactured these ships themselves, wrote entire flight manuals on the control of the various types of Vimanas, many of which are still in existence, and some have even been translated into English. One of them, the Samara Sutradhara, is a scientific treatise dealing with every possible angle of air travel in a Vimana. There are 230 stanzas dealing with the construction, take-off, cruising for thousand of miles, normal and forced landings, and even possible collisions with birds. Unfortunately, Vimanas, like most scientific discoveries, were ultimately used for war.
This is an old Chinese illustration from a book entitled "Illustrated Survey of Weird Countries" (c.1400 A.D.) and mentioned the following: Ji Gung Land : The people could make flying chariots that travelled far with a suitable wind. In Tarng's day (c.1700 B.C.), Ji Gung people flying a chariot on a westerley wind reached Yew Jo. Tarng had their chariot dismantled so it could not be demonstrated to the people during their visit. Later an east wind came on which he had them fly the chariot back to their own country west of our gateway.
The sarcophagus lid of the Mayan ruler Pacal, Lord of Palenque, was discovered in a tomb deep within the pyramid called the Temple of the Inscriptions at Palenque
Here is where it starts getting even more bazar: According to the ancient Hindu “Vedas” or these ancient poems, and references by ancient Sanskrit, Chaldean, Mayan, and Peruvian texts, before the flood, the world was broken down into to main nations – The Rama Empire, and the Atlantia Empire. These two empire were ruled by the giants, and they used the Vailixis and Vimana (the flying craft) to fight each other. The people of Rama (known as the Ramis) and the people of Alantia (known as the Asvins) fought each other constantly. In the Mahabharatra, an ancient Indian poem of enormous length, we learn that an individual named Asura Maya had a Vimana measuring twelve cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels. The poem is a veritable gold mine of information relating to conflicts between these gods who settled their differences apparently using weapons as lethal as the ones we are capable of deploying. Apart from 'blazing missiles', the poem records the use of other deadly weapons. 'Indra's Dart' operated via a circular 'reflector'. When switched on, it produced a 'shaft of light' which, when focused on any target, immediately 'consumed it with its power'. In one particular exchange, the hero, Krishna, is pursuing his enemy, Salva, in the sky, when Salva's Vimana, the Saubha is made invisible in some way. Undeterred, Krishna immediately fires off a special weapon: 'I quickly laid on an arrow, which killed by seeking out sound'. One of the great Indian epics, the Ramayana, does have a highly detailed story in it detailing a battle that started on their moon base on the dark side of the moon, and that the Ramis fled back to earth but were pursued by their enemies the Asvins. This is also mentioned in the Mahabharata. “Eluding Arjuna’s pursuit, the Daitya abandon their space city and took shelter on Earth with their giant vimana. Arjuna was able to follow the Daitya vimana wherever it tried to escape on Earth. Then, as the vimana took off for outer space again, he blasted it – breaking it apart. When debris and bodies fell to the Earth, Arjuna landed to make sure no survivors were hiding amidst the wreckage.” the Mahabharata
Evidentially prior to the flood, things were so bad on earth that people did nothing but fight and plan ways to kill each other. They apparently had flight, and space flight. If these ancient stories are to be believed, then there used to be travel to some of the local celestial bodies. But the flood came and destroyed them all on Earth, what about outside Earth? Mars and all the other planets show signs of severe meteoric impacts. Yet we have witnessed very few impacts as long as we have been observing the heavens. - something caused the Earth to tilt 23 degrees, and the crust to break open releasing the fountains of the deep (Walt Brown: The Hydroplate Theory) - all the craters on Mars on in the same hemisphere, meaning they all impacted within a half hour of each other - the entire moon is covered with meteor craters
2Th 2:3 let no man beguile you in any wise: for it will not be, except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, 2Th 2:4 he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God. 2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 2Th 2:6 And now ye know that which restraineth, to the end that he may be revealed in his own season. 2Th 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness doth already work: only there is one that restraineth now, until he be taken out of the way. 2Th 2:8 And then shall be revealed the lawless one, whom the Lord Jesus shall slay with the breath of his mouth, and bring to nought by the manifestation of his coming; 2Th 2:9 even he, whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a (the) lie: Rev 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. Dan 2:41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. Dan 2:42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. Dan 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. “In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside of this world. And yet I ask - is not that alien force already among us? " Reagan said that while the General Secretary was speaking, he had been thinking of various problems being discussed at the talks. He said that previous to the General Secretary’s remarks, he had been telling Foreign Minister Shevardnadze (who was sitting to the President’s right) that if the people of the world were to find out that there was some alien life form that was going to attack the Earth, then that knowledge would unite all the peoples of the world. “I couldn’t help but - when you stop to think that we’re all God’s children, wherever we live in the world, I couldn’t help but say to him (Gorbachev) just how easy his task and mine might be if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the universe. We’d forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries and we would find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this Earth together.” Reagan’s views about extraterrestrial life were not dismissed by the Kremlin. Gorbachev did eventually respond in a serious way to Reagan’s scenario of an extraterrestrial invasion. In February 1997, Gorbachev responded to Reagan’s comments at their 1985 Geneva Summit. “At our meeting in Geneva, the U.S. President said that if the earth faced an invasion by extraterrestrials, the United states and the Soviet Union would join forces to repel such an invasion. I shall not dispute the hypothesis, although I think it’s too early on yet to worry about that intrusion.”
Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. Rev 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. Next Week: Paul’s Letter to the Philippians
