An email I received...

 So the other day I received this email on my BMC account. I also got a notification from the Erdman email list-serve that I moderate to have it verified through that so I have NO idea how they got into the BMC email lists. I read it and tried to avoid twitching over the word choices and grammar/spelling mistakes, but thought it was interesting and it connects back to which story of evolution each person chooses to believe… enjoy!!!



There are two different opinions regarding to the emergence of this world, some people think, that this world with all live and all events would be a tiny part of the logical causal chain which started with the big bang, the others are convinced of it, that it is finally the fault of Adam and Eve because they have not observed the holy law of God: "When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it." According to the religious view the emergence of this world through the big bang is a deception of God, a scientific explanation, which was given because without the doubt in God it wouldn't be possible to test the faith and unbelief of mankind and the sense of this world would get lost. On the other hand, a causal chain out of cause and effect can not have a beginning respectively emerge out of nothing, this contradicts to the laws of science, therewith there's not only no cause before or for the big bang, but also no energy which would have been necessary for the big bang, even not a tiny disbalance between anything. If two fingers will be pressed together, is nothing between them or rather no matter, thrust therein that the universe, the human himself and the bright world which surrounds the human not emerged out of the completely harmless nothing between two fingers or without God, this is simply an imagination which was invented by some humans and which is finally impossible. Unbelief has no good effects, it would be better for the rich countries, not to teach the scientific genesis of live and the universe in the schools. Depriving children of their faith and their meaning of life is a serious crime, there is a need to stop the systematic and unfair education of many million children to the unbelieve! For example, in Italy the evolution theory was deleted successfully from the curriculum.

If the big bang could have happened without God, practically everything could have emerged out of this, but this universe was made exactly so, that the suppositions for live are given, for example without voltage no brainwaves could flow, without radiation there wouldn’t be light in many different colors, our world would be dark and ice-cold, without large quantities of atoms of the same kind and the possibility to build molecules live would be impossible, the same would be without the many different chemical properties of atoms and molecules or without the possibility of this multifunctional mini blocks to build small systems and infinite cycles or without elements like oxygen or carbon or hydrogen or . . . Also the lost of continuity or time or movement or space or matter or the three states of matter or physical or chemical energy or different agencies or the right balance between the agencies or . . . would make live finally impossible. Without intelligence something absolute senseless would have emerged out of the big bang or out of nothing, but no live. Yes, the only possible explanation is that the universe was constructed deliberately exactly so, that the suppositions for live and higher live are given!

"And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also." (Gen 1:16) God has made the world practically, the rain is not oil or anything else and its water can be drunk everywhere, enough oil for our economy was found in the ground to develop powerful solar cells, nuclear fusion and batteries for cars, through storing the surplus CO2 respectively carbon in form of trees and plants in the ground or as plankton in the oceans the weather can be regulated, not only the transistor and photolithography was possible to build the personal computer, its monitor, operating system and . . ., with the help of bacteriophages and genomic libraries we can produce antigens and vaccines . . ., when it's winter snow falls from heaven, all is white and . . . Everything is as it shall be.

For the alleged chemical evolution of live, a first living and survivable unicellular organism would have been necessary, but a just 10 µm large cell, a very complex, perfectly compound, three-dimensional puzzle or a survivable machine out of at least 10 quadrillion pieces (16 g/mol), atoms of different kind and attribute, impossibly could be washed together in an unrealistic puddle out of cytoplasm, be bound together in the same second by many different chemical processes into a flexible unit, get enliven in the same moment, to start randomly to breathe, to eat, to grow . . . and to produce, also absolutely randomly, complete and living self-copies, which will grow up some day to intelligent structured humans. If we are honest we must admit, that even not only one single dead DNA strand could be washed together in a liquid. Already the DNA strands of the first survivable cell must have randomly conformed exactly to the cell construction, beside this DNA strands are written in a very high programming language, until today nobody can understand how or by which encoding systems this codes get transcribed into commands, movements and material constructions. Also randomly for the DNA strands and for every of the different and indispensable cell organelles of the first living cell must have been directly there the belonging to copy systems or already the first cell division would have been finally impossible, the human even wouldn't be able to build the technology of only one material system which can copy itself, try to build a computer which can copy itself . . .

The functions of cells partially happen on the molecular and atomic level, if the dateless old atoms, out of which we and the cells are set together, would be as big as table tennis balls, an average human brain with a weight of 1250 to 1375 gram would take in more space than the whole planet earth with its diameter of 12700 kilometers (13,5 g/mol, the volume of a table tennis ball is 33,5 cm^3), it's a wonder that a grown thinking machine of such complexity ever could work without going defect. If the 10 quadrillion atoms of a 10 µm large unicellular organism would be as big as table tennis balls, this unicellular organism would take in the whole city Tokyo by a hight of more than 500 meters. If God would build a machine out of 10 quadrillion atoms of different kind and attribute, this machine wouldn't die any more after its commissioning, because it really would start to breathe, to eat, to grow, to move . . . to survive independently in its world and to divide itself many trillion times, to conquer the planet and to travel to the moon. If God would construct a machine with such properties, it would be so small, that we even couldn't see it with our multicellular eyes. We have got no idea about the intelligence of God, the creator out of nothing, but surly it's not grateful to use the by God constructed brain to say, that a dirty puddle was the inventor of live.

A just 10 µm large unicellular organism is a very complex, perfectly compound, three-dimensional puzzle out of at least 10 quadrillion pieces of different kind and attribute, but a chemical evolution even wouldn't be able to wash correctly together a DNA string or a two-dimensional computer program character string out of 1000 signs, which is written with only 10 different letters, because with every sign, which will be attached after the first sign, the probability that the program was written correctly sinks by the factor 10, so the probability that a computer program out of 1000 signs will be written correctly by random or will be washed together in a dirty puddle is 10^1000 (a 1 with one thousand 0). In contrast to this, today we know, that the whole universe contains less than 10^100 atoms totally and that it is less than 10^18 seconds old. If the universe would be 100 times smaller or younger, the chance that the chemical evolution really happened would be 100 times less, if the 1000 sign computer program would be 100 times shorter, the chance that the chemical evolution really happened would be 100 times bigger, so we can stroke out the zeros: 10^1000 - 10^100 - 10^18 = 10^882. We have reduced the whole universe to one atom and an age of one second through only 118 letters! So the iron proof for the absolute impossibility of a chemical evolution was written down!

A long time ago a world was created which seems to be produced and controlled by random and in which we can decide without the fear of God. Also if this world seems to be produced and controlled by random Jesus taught us that God decides about everything, even on which side a coin will fall or when a bird will die. Quotations of Jesus: "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." "I have come to throw fire on the earth. I wish that it had already started!" "Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." "Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." "I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved." With the words "my blood, which is poured out for you" Jesus allowed us to drink wine, apparently Jesus not really wanted that we drink wine, but he let us the choice to decide independently over the God-given sin. Finally it's wise to exclude everything evil: "Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know (out of self-knowledge, with determination) how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets: Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (the God-given sin), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (health and happiness), and only a few find it. Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognise them. Do people pick grapes from thorn-bushes, or figs from thistles (they defend the sin)? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire." (Matt 7:9-19) Without alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, all thinkable other active substances, drugs, all unnecessary medications and without too sweet fruits as, for example, figs, sweets generally and every gram of sugar health, vitality and intelligence not get destroyed, consciousness and intelligence not get hindered in the continuous growth all over the life. It's good to wave and to find instead of this true ways to make life more interesting. Altogether Jesus taught us that it's better to live for the other side. “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matt 6:19-21) . . . More about Jesus can be read in the Bible (link - found with Google). The life in this world seems to be real and its existence is also only a wonder, so are we the dead causal chain out of nothing, a network in the dark which thinks about itself and starts to believe in God or are we made by an insidious and everything observing intelligence? Random means nothing else than complete chaos and intelligent systems not emerge without an intelligence behind, but the universe, the nature, live, our world, our thinking and our reality is completely set together out of very intelligent and flexible systems, we live in the middle of God's masterful and three dimensional work and we even haven't noticed it. So is it also true what they call heavens door and that dying doesn’t hurt, is it really true that it suddenly means, "you shall be called into beyond". Still for many people believe isn't knowledge, so believe in Jesus, believe in the key. We can be very excited about God's new world! Some humans will be happy for 100 years and some will be sad for 100 years, but when this life ends the eternity will begin, so why to live for a worthless dust particle when it comes about the entire universe.


In the age of fifty years Mohammed married a six years old girl, the founder of the Islam started to sexually abuse the child when it was nine years old. Aisha was the daughter of Abu Bakr and one day when Mohammed visited Abu Bakr's house, he got to know her, Aisha was a cheerful and liveliest small girl and Mohammed was very impressed of her kind . . . Sahih Bukhari 7,62,64: Aisha told that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death) (link - found with Google). Mohammed also was a friend of slavery and was caught by one of his many wives, when he was unfaithful with his slave Maria al-Qibtiyya (Maria herself was a present of someone). Promptly the fitting Quran verse was send down to Mohammed and at once it was OK to deceive his wives. In the case of conflict Mohammed beat his wives and locked them, he even allowed to beat unmarried women and the wives of others. The founder of the Islam also allowed the genital mutilation of the woman, so that it became an Islamic ritual until today and he tried to defend prostitution and pimping (the holy Quran 24:33): "If your slave girls desire to keep chaste, you shall not force them to prostitution. And whoever forces them, then Allah, seeing that they are forced, surely is Forgiving, Merciful." . . .

Muslim book 8, no. 3371: Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa'id al Khadri: 0 Abu Sa'id, did you hear Allah's Messenger mentioning al-'azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah's Messenger on the expedition to the Bi'l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wifes, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have intercourse with them . . . But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah's Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah's Messenger, and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born (link). Approximately the same was listed in Al-Muwatta book 29, no. 29.32.95 (link). Another historic event, which was written down, happened two years later in Awtas (Abu Dawud book 2, no. 2150): Abu Sai’d al-Khudri said: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down (to Mohammed) the Qur’anic verse: (Quran Sura 4:24) "And all married women (are forbidden unto you for intercourse), except those whom your right hands possess." See also Muslim book 8, no. 3432 (link) and Abu Dawud book 2, no. 2151-2154. This means that Mohammed, the founder of the Islam, and his friends have raped defenceless, married women and that Mohammed really tried to justify this through religion. Genital mutilation, rape of married women, prostitution, child abuse through a fifty three years old man and a live full of blood, fear, violence, oppression, massmurder, dispossession, slavery and . . ., Mohammed surly had not only unwise ideas (or?), but of course he can't have been a friend of God, it never has given a need for five Islamic prayers a day, for Ramadan, to wear an Islamic headscarf and face veil and . . . Very welcome to Christianity!


1. Good sources of energy. Maybe this aren't good sources of energy: Meat, butter, cream, eggs, seafood, apples, oranges, potatoes, maize (also not good for animals), paprika, noodles out of durum wheat, oats, peanuts, most vegetable oils, mustard, cassia cinnamon, pepper, chilli, fried food, salt with fluorine, all food additives, cold/boiled tap water and . . . The best sources of energy are rice, spelt rice, millet, noodles out of wheat flour (without additives), mixed bread (without additives), iodine-rich fish (without additives, no conserves), pasteurized and homogenized whole milk (not ultra-heat-treated, fat content not under 3,5%, at least 750ml daily), mixed salad with sauce of usually yogurt and milk (yogurt without sugar), mixed vegetables (without additives), tomato sauce/soup (without additives, chopped tomatoes/organic tomato soup or juice/self-made), healthy fruits, herbs, natural salt, still mineral water and . . . It's important to eat every day fish (iodine-rich sorts), as without its iodine diseases emerge, two days without fish can cause already unpleasant deficiency symptoms. The added iodine and fluorine of salt has not the same effect as the natural substances of fish, they even have a continuous damaging effect on some organs. As fish also salad and vegetables should be eaten every day. The best fruits are kiwis, mangoes, nectarines, peaches, apricots, plums, lemons, blueberries, cranberries, ribes, raspberries, blackberries and . . . Kiwis and mangoes are optimal to cover the daily vitamin C requirement. This are not only the best sources of energy, an according to nutrition also strongly reduces the risk of overweight, cancer, renal failure, rheumatism, diseased posture, gout, backache, joint pains, osteoporosis, lung diseases and pains, circulatory problems, intermittent claudication, strokes, heart attacks, heart diseases and pains, to become a nursing case in the higher age, dementia and alzheimer's, caries, tooth loss and toothaches, diabetes, ADS, headaches, skin problems, inertia, nightmares, depressions and . . .

2. It's very good to do sport every day. Through sport many neurotransmitters get released, this neurotransmitters cause that we are happy and feel good and that many new synapses between the nerve cells of the brain get formed. The physically and mentally health, which is caused by sport, cannot be underestimated. Also important for a happy live is enough daylight, too less daylight can cause, for example, cancer, lack of energy and depressions. Don't get old without being sporty.

3. It's very good to play on a music instrument every day. Also the most musicians are happy, friendly and tolerant people.

4. Win, grow and become free through humility, the opposite of jealousy, forgiveness, tolerance and gentleness.

5. Children learn form their parents and parents from their children, so it's good to spend much time together. It's good to be their friend, but not to be too pleasant, never give and never reward children with sweets or something else with sugar. If man and woman are married and want to give children life, it's very good to do this with much chastity and in health and sportiness, also in the pregnancy of the woman. The human intelligence and abilities depend on the first month and on the first years of life, therefore children must gain the right experience and they need the right toys to develop and train intelligence, creativity, sportiness, motoric abilities and social abilities. It would be better if the kindergarten would be as big and also as important as a large university, a game world developed and constructed by intelligent people, so that children of a certain age can form groups to gain many new, amazing and age appropriate experience every day in wide public space and range, beside to group accomplishing rooms.


Many parents send their child to a sports academy, maybe the child don't want to do much sports and not like to visit this school, but after the school has ended and the child has become really sportive and also mentally fit, it is happy that its parents have made this decision!

The described learning system is non-commercial and can be embedded in usually schools to complement the normal education. Therefore some rooms will be equipped with modern crosstrainers for the scholars. Every time before the training begins the scholars get sportswear which will be provided by the school. In front of every crosstrainer is positioned a screen, while the training the scholar looks on this screen to read a text which contains knowledge contents. When the text was read the scholar pushes a button in the hand or front area of the crosstrainer, whereupon the shown text will be replaced at once through a multiple choice question, so that the scholar must remember the read text to answer it. If are maximally 10 answers possible for the multiple choice questions, 10 belonging to buttons can be installed in the front area of the crosstrainer. If the scholar is not sure what is the right answer or what are the right answers, he can change once again to the text to read it a second time, he also can answer directly. For every right answer the scholar gets points, for every wrong answer points will be removed. The higher the degree of difficulty, the more points will be forgiven. So many knowledge texts and questions will be made available through the software, that even the best scholars not can reach the end. Alternatively the knowledge texts could be read simultaneously or exclusively by a computer generated voice, whereby the scholar uses headphones and can adjusted the reading speed freely. Probably it would be better if the scholars read exclusively by themselves. Sometimes, when knowledge badly can be conveyed through simple text, also short video sequences can be shown. Within certain limits the scholars can configure the resistance level of the crosstrainer freely while the training, also the pulse-frequency can be used whereby certain values may not be exceeded . . .

On a big screen anywhere in the room the points of the scholars and the corresponding placements will be published, surly the experience will show that this is finally more positive in many respects, it not only will motivate the scholars to deliver top performances, for example, it also will move the school and the act therein into the center stage. This big screen could show the points and placements for the mental effort, the physical effort and for the overall effort separately, also the results for boys and girls could be shown separately. The screen in front of every crosstrainer can simultaneously show the same informations as the big screen, to motivate the scholars for reaching more points.

Through the sportive activity neurotransmitters get released which cause that much more synapses between the nerve cells of the brain get formed than usually. The neurotransmitters also effect a deeper comprehension of the read knowledge texts, by and by a higher ability of understanding will be initiated. The scholars get trained to be concentrated very intensively on something over a longer period of time and to think as fast as possible, it will be easier for them to follow to the contents of teaching while the normal lessons. Simultaneously the sportive activity is a good balance to the normal lessons. An other advantage is that the scholars will take in large quantities of knowledge, from day to day the fast comprehending of knowledge will be simpler for them . . .

Children could start already in the primary school with this learning method, for example, then when they already can solve easy maths problems through the multiple choice questions. For the beginning already 20 minutes of training daily would be enough, every half year, for example, the training time can be extended by 5 minutes, so in the 7th year the 90 minutes mark will be reached. Instead it also would be possible to extend the training time every week by some seconds. If already in the primary school will be started with the training, 7 years later 90 minutes training daily wouldn't be a problem. After 10 to 13 years of school the scholars will be fit like real super athletes, this is the best condition for a happy, successful, healthy and sporty live. It's about a new dimension of life quality. If it is boring start with Capoeira, become a tennis ace or climb up the mountain . . .
