Media @ New Hope CalgaryHow does how we listen to the earth inform our understanding of God?

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…
And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas…”
Genesis 1:1, 9-10, TNIV

“Geophysics allows us to see things you can’t see.”
Lee Wamsteeker, Geophysicist

“We fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
2 Corinthians 4:18, NLT

“According to John Calvin, because God chose to reveal himself to finite – and, after the fall, sinful – people as a holy, eternal being, he had to accommodate himself to human language, emotions and objects. The bible leaves no doubt that these anthropomorphic self disclosures are forms of genuine self revelation.”
Eerdmans Bible Dictionary

“[God] has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity
in the human heart; yet no one can fathom
what God has done from beginning to end.”
Ecclesiastes 3:10-12, NIV

I am the Alpha & the Omega,”
says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come.”
Jesus in Revelation 1:8, NIV

Praise the lord
I watch in YouTube Geophysics and the Ground of all Being. I would request to for geophysicists to come to Kenya train them this area on volunteer basis.

Could you help me answer these questions from my flat earth wacko friend:
People that are living in the Rochester area. can see the Toronto skyline, the tower and buildings on a clear day. The distance is approx.100 miles with the declination at 6,600 feet. In essence I am standing on one side of a 6,600 foot hill that is shaped like the curve of earth can I see buildings on the other side 100 miles away? Is that possible ? What is the difference between standing on the seashore at a 6,600 declination at 100 miles and a hill that is 6,600 feet tall? In both cases I have a 6,600 hill or curve of the earth to see objects that far away. I am wrong? Is it refraction? Let me know your thoughts. I have looked into refraction (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_refraction.) but that involves the sun at sunset, sunrise and atmospheric conditions. In terrestrial refraction the line of sight variance is 8% + or - , depending on conditions near the surface of the water. Let me know what you thoughts are. Also, I live in So Cal and on a clear early morning as I stand on the shore I can see the coastal lights of Catalina. And with my telescope I can see boat movements near Avalon and people playing and walking on the shoreline. It is approx. 30 miles away. The declination is approx. 600 feet. Why is it that I see the coastal lights and movements? Shouldn't the approx 600 feet of declination prevent me from seeing the lights? Is the light and image bending / refracting? Is it an optical illusion? I don't know the answer, could you help explain those questions.

your'e a true Geo, don't fully explain anything just you're enterpretation of tangents that you try to relate through your'e confusion of geophysicsl. Good work on your'e degree bitch

I'm a follower of Lucifer/Anti-Christ and am an eternal enemy of Yahweh, but
this was a great lecture.
