Was The Earth Created In Six Earth Days?

By Bill Jones. Was the Earth created in six Earth days? I do not read Genesis 1 that way. While 6 Earth Days is certainly implied, a careful read will result in a different answer.    My background is as an engineer/scientist since I have worked in advanced engineering for my entire career. I have designed, built, and debugged systems that had never been built before.  I am an inventor with ten patents.     I have eight years of study with the “Bible Study Fellowship” program.  I took the BSGenesis course two times. The Genesis course was being taught when I started BSF. I started the course because I was interested in Genesis. It should be noted that BSF is a worldwide organization.  If you travel you do not have to miss a single lesson since the courses are taught at the same time in each city worldwide. It is not a trivial study. There is often a waiting list for men wanting to enlist in the BSF study. At the end of seven years you are expected to leave the course if there is a wa

Repair Your AC/DC Tube Radio

By Bill Jones. This article will allow you to repair a number of radios if you are inclined to follow the steps given here.  While the discussion will be centered mainly on the five and six tube AC/DC radio much of the discussion applies to the transformer radio. Included in this article will be the necessary minimum equipment required. It is necessary to find the parts needed, and this will be discussed. The bare equipment required is a Volt-Ohm Meter (VOM) along with a good soldering iron.  The digital meter is great since it is accurate, and difficult to burn out. I use a Fluke meter and highly recommend it. I also have a good Volt Ohm meter. I find a Vacuum Tube Volt meter most useful.  You need means for getting tube data sheets. You may require two irons if you intend to work on the transformer sets. One iron should be a 500 watt iron (for transformer radios), and another smaller iron. I would suggest a 40 watt iron.  The older AC sets often had components that were soldered

NASA Climate Study Announced

By Bill Jones.The Oklahoma City newspaper (12/15/2016) had a full one page announcement   regarding a NASA grant for Oklahoma University to study Carbon Gases.  Climate change was not mentioned in the announcement. The grant is for a study of “Earth’s natural exchanges of carbon between the land, atmosphere and ocean.” This is a five year study awarded to Oklahoma University. It is a 166 million dollar grant by NASA to be headed by Oklahoma University. The study would center on a communications satellite that would make observations over the Americas. The News Article implies that OU would receive 166 million dollars for this study. It is likely that most of the funds will be used for the satellite, and the required instrumentation.  Oklahoma University would be receiving a smaller amount for a study of the results of the satellite data. There are also a number of other groups involved in this study. These groups would require funding. Oklahoma University would l
