Anchored by Truth from Crystal Sea Books - a 30 minute show exploring the grand Biblical saga of creation, fall, and redempti

Episode 178 – 10 Facts Every Christian Needs to Know 6 – Age Irregularities Welcome to Anchored by Truth brought to you by Crystal Sea Books. In John 14:6, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” The goal of Anchored by Truth is to encourage everyone to grow in the Christian faith by anchoring themselves to the secure truth found in the inspired, inerrant, and infallible word of God. Script: They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” 2 Peter, chapter 3, verse 4, New International Version ******** VK: Hello! I’m Victoria K. Welcome to Anchored by Truth brought to you by Crystal Sea Books. We’re very glad to be with you today as we continue the series we started a few weeks ago on Anchored by Truth. We are calling this series “10 Facts Every Christian Needs to Know.” In the studio today we have RD Fierro. RD is an author and the founder of Crystal Sea Books. He is the one picking the facts we are covering in this series. RD, we’ve covered 4 of the 10 facts so far in this series. How about if we do a quick refresher on those four facts? RD: Well, I would also like to say hello to all the listeners joining us here today. We’re very grateful for those who have an interest in deepening their faith by thinking carefully about the Bible and the truth that it contains. The first fact that we discussed was that every Christian needs to know is that science confirms that the universe and earth are thousands of years old, not millions or billions of years old. The second fact we covered was that the complexity of life makes it impossible for life to have arisen as a result of the random collision of atoms and molecules – even if you could explain the existence of the atoms and molecules to begin with. Fact number 3 is that there is solid scientific evidence that the tallest mountains on earth were underwater at one time. And the 4th fact every Christian needs to know is that the fossil record does not support evolution. VK: So, briefly put the first fact helps dispel the assertion that “Deep Time” is supported scientifically. Said slightly differently, the conventional idea that the universe and earth are billions of years old does not possess the scientific support that is commonly supposed. The 2nd fact dispels the idea that living creatures could have risen by chance through the random, chaotic interaction of inanimate matter. The 3rd fact points out that the earth as we see it today reflects at least one previous catastrophic flood sometime in its history. And the 4th fact reveals that there is no direct scientific evidence that evolution as conceived by Charles Darwin ever occurred. RD: Yes. Just to amplify what we are talking about with that 4th fact, Dr. Pierre P. Grasse’ who was one of the world’s greatest living biologists, in his book Evolution of Living Organisms said that “the process of evolution is revealed only through fossil forms. A knowledge of paleontology is, therefore, a prerequisite; only paleontology can provide … the evidence of evolution and reveal its course or mechanisms.” In other words Dr. Grasse’ plainly said there is no scientific evidentiary mechanism that can make up for the lack of transitional forms in the fossil record. And, David Kitts, a professor of geology at the University of Oklahoma said, “Evolution requires intermediate forms between species and paleontology does not provide them.” VK: These facts taken together really point out that so much of what is normally taken for granted in our culture – primary narratives as you call them - really rests on an untenable foundation. You like to distinguish between primary and secondary narratives because you think that that understanding that distinction is very important to Christians being able be salt and light to the culture. What do you mean by primary and secondary narratives? RD: Primary narratives are overarching paradigms so embedded in the culture that they are not even noticed any more. They are like the framed art prints on your wall. Initially you see them and think about them, but as time goes by you notice them less and less. Eventually you only notice them when a visitor comes in and makes a comment about them. Deep time, evolution, and uniformitarianism - among others - are now primary narratives in our culture. Only fools and the suspect disagree with them. The narratives we notice, such as the prominent social and political narratives, are secondary ones - the acceptability of abortion or same sex marriage, the difference between "green" energy and fossil fuels, increased government control and regulation over our daily lives, etc. The secondary ones emerge from and are dependent on the primary ones. VK: Why is that? RD: Because most people need to believe that there is at least a modicum of consistency in their worldview – their value set. Before the appearance of these primary narratives it was far more difficult for people to simply side step God and His authority. But Deep Time and the Big Bang did away with the need to see God as the Creator of the physical universe. Widespread belief in evolution did away with the need to have God as the Author of Life. Uniformitarianism replaced catastrophism as the dominant view for how the topographic features of the earth was produced. Catastrophism was the belief that the physical features of our planet were largely shaped by one or more catastrophes such as the Genesis global flood. This did away with the previously widespread narrative that God had not only created everything but that he was also the Administrator of Justice. Genesis makes it pretty clear that the global flood was caused because of sin. VK: Genesis, chapter 6, verses 5 through 7 say, “The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” RD: Right. So, notice that the predominant result of these primary narratives – Deep Time, evolution, uniformitarianism - was to get rid of a perceived need for God. Before the General Theory of Evolution came around even atheists admitted that they had no adequate way to explain the existence of the created order and life. VK: Probably the most prominent atheist of the last 3 or 4 decades is Richard Dawkins. Even Dawkins has written that “Although atheism might have been logically tenable before Darwin, Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist.” In other words Darwin gave a level of respectability to an idea that previously was widely and easily dismissed – the idea that living creatures did not need a Creator to explain their existence. Before Darwin it’s not that evolutionary-type theories didn’t exist, but they had no hold or approval in popular culture. RD: Yes. So, once our modern culture got rid of the common-sensical notion that God exists the post-modernists were free to redefine a value set free of God. This included the definition of family, the suitability of various sexual practices, man’s dominion over nature, the distinction among religious truth claims, etc. We replaced a value system characterized by the 10 commandments with a value system characterized by humanist principles. VK: So in this “10 Facts” series we are challenging the truth of those primary narratives, aren’t we? I think this is part of what Jesus meant when he said, “you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” That’s John, chapter 8, verse 32. So, what truth do we want to focus on today? What is fact 5 of the 10 facts every Christian needs to know? RD: Fact 5 is that the conventional dates assigned to the age of the earth and universe do not possess the scientific support normally presumed. VK: What you’re saying is that when we hear on various tv shows and internet videos that the universe is 14.5 Billion years old and the earth is 4.5 Billion years old – there is really very little, if any, scientific support for assigning those dates. I think you better elaborate on what you’re thinking. RD: In our first fact of this series we began our disabuse of the notion of Deep Time by citing 3 lines of evidence that show that the earth and universe are thousands of years old – not Billions. In our second episode we added a fourth line of evidence. VK: And those episodes are available on our website, crystalseabooks.com, or their favorite podcasting app for anyone who wants to review them. RD: Today, rather than focusing on evidence that the earth is “young” I want to focus on the problems associated with the way conventional science has assigned those long dates. To begin with we need to recognize that there is no way for scientists, or anyone, to “measure” the age of the earth and universe – even though that idea circulates widely in our culture. No scientist has measured the age of the earth. They can’t because it is impossible to measure age. The age of events that extend beyond our recording ability are always calculated – they are not measured. VK: What do you mean that the ages are “calculated?” RD: There are 3 and only 3 ways of determining the age of anything. If we have the right records we can simply go to the records and determining how much time has passed between the start of the event and the end of the event. VK: And that’s how we usually determine our own age. We know our birthdate and the current year and we simply subtract one date from the other. For some of you that’s getting harder day by day. RD: Right. At my age counting on fingers and toes doesn’t cut it any more. Going to the records works provided we have reliable records. Another way of determining age is to compare something of an unknown age with something of a known age and determining how they compare. VK: An example of this approach might be if a doctor was trying to determine the age of a child and didn’t have the child’s records or history. The doctor can tell how tall the child is, how much they weigh, the kind of teeth the child possesses, etc. Doctors have good ideas of how fast children normally develop and so can probably make a reasonably accurate determination of a child’s age based on their stage of development. But this kind of an approach assumes that the child is about average and didn’t have any conditions that affected their growth and development. These assumptions might be wrong and would produce an incorrect age. The comparative approach is often used and works well in archeology. Archeologists can compare a new find from a new site and see whether there are any existing artifacts that resemble the new find. If we know that a particular piece of pottery came from the 1st century AD in Israel and we find an unknown piece of pottery we can compare the two and see if the new piece looks similar to previously identified artifact. But again, this assumes that the first artifact was dated correctly. RD: Right. And the third way of determining age is by measuring the rate of some process, and the amount of product that process produces, and working out how long it would take to produce that amount of product at that rate of production. Said differently, the age is calculated by determining or knowing the rate of change associated with a process and then using that rate and changes in the state of an object or creature based on that rate to infer the passage of time. This process can be very accurate. For instance, forensic scientists may use this kind of an approach in helping decide when someone died. The forensic scientists may know that the presence of certain stages of insects around a dead body can reveal how long it has been since death occurred. This approach can also be accurate where we know with certainty the starting nature of the object or element we are dating and that there have not been material changes either in the rate of change or the introduction of external contaminants. Unfortunately, using processes and rates of change, especially radioactive decay, is the most common way scientists try to approach dating the age of rocks and the earth. VK: And that is, of course, where uncertainty enters the picture. For example radioactive uranium naturally decays into lead. Scientists can measure how fast this is happening now. They can then measure how much lead is present in a rock, and calculate how long it would take for uranium decay to produce that much lead. But in making this calculation the scientist is making several assumptions. They must assume that all the lead came from uranium, that no uranium or lead entered or left the rock since it was formed, and that the rate of decay of the uranium has remained constant. All these assumptions are unprovable and some are unreasonable. What this example illustrates is that using process and rate change to calculate the age of the earth must, by necessity, involve making lots of unprovable assumptions. And this weakness adheres to radioactive decay determined ages regardless of the scientific sophistication involved in actually taking measurements. RD: Right. We have no way of knowing what the initial state of the rock was because no one was, or could have been, there to examine the rock at the time it was formed. But what we do know is that there have been some pretty spectacular errors made in dating rocks when we do know when the rock was formed. VK: You’re thinking about one of your favorite examples of the rocks that were taken from the Mount St. Helens volcano. Like all erupting volcanoes it created a great deal of new rock and the accumulating rock has formed a fairly large dome. The current dome is three-quarters of a mile long and 1,100 feet high. The current dome started growing after the volcano’s last explosive eruption on October 17, 1980. There were 17 so-called dome-building eruptions that stretched from October 18, 1980 to October 26th 1986. A thick pasty lava oozed out of the volcanic vent like toothpaste from a tube and because the kind of lava that was oozing it was too thick to flow very far. It simply piled up around the vent forming the mountain-like dome. There’s a good article about the dating of the rocks from Mount St. Helens on creation.com the website for Creation Ministries International. RD: Yes. The article points out that one geologist sent samples of the rocks formed during the eruption and from some mineral concentrates that were taken from the rock. When the lab dated the rock and the samples the dates they assigned were around 350,000 years old for the rock and 2.8 Million years old for the mineral concentrates. The dating method used at Mount St Helens was the potassium-argon method, which is widely used in geological circles. It is based on the fact that potassium-40 (an isotope of the element potassium) spontaneously ‘decays’ into argon-40 (an isotope of the element argon). This process proceeds very slowly at a known rate, having a half-life for potassium-40 of 1.3 billion years. In other words, 1.0 gram of potassium-40 would, in 1.3 billion years, theoretically decay to the point that only one-half gram was left. VK: So, using this method the lab that was assigning the dates assigned dates of a few hundred thousand years old to over two and a half million years old. But we know that all the samples that were being dated had been formed between 1980 and 1986. Right? RD: Right. And this example illustrates the problems with using radioactive decay processes to assign dates to rocks or geological material. Contrary to what is generally believed, it is not just a matter of measuring the amount of potassium-40 and argon-40 in a volcanic rock sample of unknown age, and calculating a date. To be accurate we need to know the history of the rock. For example, we need to know how much ‘daughter’ element was present in the rock when it formed. In most situations we don’t know. Since we can’t measure the proportions of parent and daughter elements scientists have to make assumptions. They have to guess. It is routinely assumed that there was no argon initially. But even if we knew the starting proportions we would also need to know whether potassium-40 or argon-40 has leaked into, or out of, the rock since it formed. Again, there is no way of knowing, so assumptions have to be made. It is routinely assumed that no leakage occurred. It is only after we have made these assumptions that we can calculate an ‘age’ for the rock. And when this is done, the ‘age’ of most rocks calculated in this way is usually very great, often millions of years. VK: And this example of errant dating of recently formed rocks is not limited to Mount St. Helens. In his book “The Greatest Hoax on Earth” Dr. Jonathan Sarfati cites a similar example of misdated rocks from a New Zealand volcano. The volcano erupted in 1949, 1954, and 1975 but the dates assigned by potassium-argon dating ranged from 250,000 years old to three and a half million years old. RD: The point of this discussion is not to cast aspersions on science or scientists but to illustrate the limitations that all observers face when they are trying to make determinations about what happened in the distant past. All any observer can do is to examine the current evidence – the evidence before them – and then apply analysis to determine what the evidence tells them. Now here at Anchored by Truth we are well aware that the vast majority of scientists would disagree with what we are discussing today. But truth is not determined by majority opinion. It is determined by correspondence to reality. VK: And the reality is that no one alive on earth was present when the earth was formed. But we do have eye witness testimony that comes to us from one source, don’t we? The Bible gives us a report of the creation of the earth and the universe. So, the way Biblical creationists determine the age of the earth is by going to that report – that record – and seeing what it says. But, as we mentioned earlier, for us to rely on a record we must be sure that that record is accurate. But that is what we do on Anchored by Truth. We continuously present evidence that supports the reliability and authenticity of scripture. RD: Exactly. The fact that we are discussing today - that the conventional dates assigned to the age of the earth and universe do not possess the scientific support normally presumed – is simply that. It’s a fact. Despite the lengthy presentations that are made about the scientific method behind making dating determinations the simple fact is that those defenses tend to talk a lot about methodology while ignoring the underlying assumptions. But the assumptions are inescapable. As we illustrated the person assigning the dates must make those assumptions because without the assumptions they cannot apply their methodology. And those assumptions are unprovable. VK: Not only are the assumptions behind radiometric dating unprovable but their most basic assumption – uniformitarianism - is called into question by the possibility of a global flood. A flood of the type described in Genesis would have affected every aspect of the earth including its topography and geology. So, if the Genesis flood occurred, and we strongly believe that science supports that it did, then uniformitarianism has to be dismissed as a starting point. RD: Yes. And that was the point of using our opening scripture from 2 Peter. 2,000 years ago the Apostle Peter foresaw the day when begin to mock the idea that Christ was going to come again by saying, “that’s silly. Everything is just going along the way it always has.” What Peter prophesied we now see around us daily. VK: So, our 5th fact reinforces our 1st fact. The 1st fact is that there is affirmative evidence such as lunar recession that shows that the age of earth is very unlikely to be in the billions of years. The fact we discussed today make the same point from the opposite side. The so-called science that is used to assign billions of years dates for the earth and universe rests on inescapable and unprovable assumptions. The two facts work together to disperse the legitimacy of the conventional view about the age of the earth. RD: Exactly. Empirical observations of our earth cast a great deal of doubt on the conventional view. Biblical creationists offer a competing view. So, the question then is which view is better supported by the evidence and whether the observer is going to follow the evidence? VK: Or whether they are going to adhere to their starting axioms even when those axioms are at odd with the evidence? RD: Yes. I understand that when listeners first encounter these kind of choices it can be startling, even disturbing. We all read the high school and college texts with the thick covers and full cover graphics that assured us that the earth is billions of years old and that there is overwhelming evidence that demonstrates that. But the reality of it is that as you probe beneath the surface you find out that most of those science textbooks only presented one side of the argument – they were selective about the evidence they included. They had to be. If they had featured or even given time to the alternate explanation they never would have been published. That’s why we’re doing this “10 facts every Christian should know” series. We are drawing people’s attention to the evidence for the alternative and then inviting people to investigate further on their own. Sadly, that is not an invitation that is issued very often in the chemistry or physics classrooms in schools or colleges across this nation. VK: Well, we won’t dwell too much on the political commentary except to say this. As you pointed out the social narratives that circulate today depend on certain underlying primary narratives. And for over 150 years one of those primary narratives has been that science has proven that our world and universe can exist just fine without God. But our hearts tell us this isn’t true and when we start taking a hard look at the available evidence our brains confirm what our hearts already knew. This sounds like a great time to go to the Lord in prayer. Today let’s listen to a prayer for the people and institutions that oversee our children’s education – the school boards. And let’s remember that God’s word calls on us to pray regularly for our government leaders. We should pray for them to make wise decisions and if they are not we must pray that God would lead them into a recognition that they are ultimately accountable to Him. ---- PRAYER FOR SCHOOL BOARDS VK: Before we close we’d like to remind our audience that a lot of our radio episodes are linked together in series of topics so if they missed any episodes in this series or if they just want to hear one again, all of these episodes are available on your favorite podcast app. To find them just search on “Anchored by Truth by Crystal Sea Books.” If you’d like to hear more, try out crystalseabooks.com where “We’re not perfect but our Boss is!” (Opening Bible Quote from the New International Version) 2 Peter, chapter 3, verse 4, New International Version Immeasurable Age - creation.com Radio-dating in Rubble - creation.com Dinosaur footprint treasure trove found in Britain - creation.com The Bright Angel Trail trackways - creation.com Flat gaps - creation.com Dinosaur and mammal tracks found together - creation.com Satan’s Strategy • Cast doubt on God’s goodness • Deny God’s truth • Elevate self-importance • Establish a replacement in the mind and heart for God’s truth Cultural Narratives One way to look at narratives is that there are primary and secondary narratives that circulate in our culture. The primary narratives are so embedded in our culture that they are not even noticed any more. They are like the framed prints on your wall. Initially you see them but as time goes by you notice them less and less. Eventually you only know they are there when a visitor comes in and remarks about them. Deep time, evolution, uniformitarianism, and the equality of all religious viewpoints are now primary narratives in our culture. Only fools and the suspect disagree with them. The narratives we notice (such as the prominent social and political narratives) are secondary ones - the acceptability of abortion, same sex marriage, the difference between "green" energy and fossil fuels, "public" education, increased government control and regulation, etc. The secondary ones emerge from and are dependent on the primary ones. • The Big Bang/deep time does away with the need for God as Creator. • Evolution does away with the need for God as the Author of life. • Uniformitarianism does away God as the Administrator of justice (become evil continually and God will wipe you off the face of the earth). Since we've done away with God we now create our own standards for what constitutes "personhood," family, man's dominion over the earth, etc. The problem is, of course, we didn't do away with God or His truth. And the house built on intellectual sand falls when the river of reality hits it. So, we will proclaim the truth to try to save some and maybe by God's grace many or most. People who doubt the inerrancy of scripture never think about any of this but they should. The line from that which they doubt the Word to a life they don't want to live is very straight. The line grows even more straight as it uncoils - just like the hangman's rope.

Romans 6:15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! 16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?  17 But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. 18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness. 20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but   is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.                 In Chapter 6 Paul declares that God, through the death of Jesus, not only died for us, but we also died with him. That is a great truth. When God says he set us free from the life of Adam and linked us to the life of Christ, he really did. Through for quite a long time our feelings will tell us differently, God wants us to understand this. We are to believe it regardless of how we feel, because what he says is true. If we will believe it, despite our feelings, we will soon discover that it is true. More and more we shall enter into the realization of this tremendous thing -- that we can be good in Christ as easily as we were bad in Adam.Choose Your MasterII. WE SHOULD BE SLAVES TO GOD! (15-23)Another reason not to continue in sin is explained in terms of servitude.  We become slaves to that which we obey, either sin to death or God for righteousness (15-16).   A. WE BECOME SLAVES TO WHOM WE OBEY (15-18)      1. Either of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness         (15-16)v15 Look at v1, it is different than 15 Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound.V15  What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!As Charles Spurgeon put it, "An unchanged life is the mark of an unchanged heart, and an unchanged heart is a sign of an unregenerate life."If there is no change, if your attitudes are the same, if your outlook is the same -- then there is a very serious doubt as to whether you ever became a Christian at all! That is what is involved in the question of Romans 6:1.V15 The other question is not, "Shall we continue to abide in sin," but, rather, "Should we sin even once now that we are not under law but under grace?"See how God so beautifully uses these Old Testament stories to illustrate the tremendous truths of the New Testament. One of the most effective books of the Old Testament in this respect is the book of Joshua, for it gives us the picture of Israel entering the land -- and the land is always a picture of the fullness of the Spirit, the walk in Christ, that we are talking about here in Romans. As Israel came out of the wilderness of self-effort across the river Jordan and into the land, the first obstacle that lay in their pathway was the tremendous city of Jericho, with its great, high walls -- tremendous walls, we are told. Archeologists, who have now laid bare the foundations of these very walls, tell us that they were very likely over 100 feet high and some 50-60 feet thick. This was an impregnable fortress.

In the early morning hours of August 16, 2020, 12,000 lightning strikes exploded across northern California, igniting more than 585 wildfires. In the Santa Cruz Mountains scattered blazes grew into one massive burning organism — The CZU August Lightning Complex Fire — eating all in its path, scorching some 86,000 acres, destroying over 900 homes and Big Basin, California's first state park. We hear from young men and women from the Amah Mutsun Tribal band who have been working to clear and steward the land; archaeologists and historians from the historic Big Basin redwood State Park; and from residents of the Santa Cruz mountains who shared their experiences and stories for the historical record. This story grew out of a collaboration with the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History. People who lost their homes in the blaze were invited to bring in artifacts sifted from the ashes to be photographed by award winning photographer Shmuel Thaler and to be interviewed by The Kitchen Sisters about the fire, their homes, the environment, their lives. For more stories, photos and a video about the fires and this project visit kitchensisters.org.

Primary source documents suggest seven to nine Spanish vessels wrecked in the Lower Florida Keys on 6 September 1622. Over the past 400 years, only treasure hunters have located three vessels of the doomed fleet. Historical Documents point to three other shipwrecks in modern Dry Tortugas National Park. NPS Underwater Archaeologists and historians study the fleet's disaster, contemporary salvage, and protect the delicate nature of the shipwrecks in Dry Tortugas National Park. Since underwater archaeology began in Dry Tortugas National Park (then Fort Jefferson National Monument) in 1971, many archaeologists led investigations to find the 650-ton galleon Nuestra Señora del Rosario, a patache (which carried messages between the treasure galleons), and the Portuguese frigate Nuestra Señora del Rosario in the Dry Tortugas. Not only were the ships salvaged in 1623, but the wooden remains were burned to make it easier for the Spanish to recover all the bronze cannons and precious metal in the holds of the ships. Therefore, the only things that remain from these shipwrecks aren't the wood, silver, or even iron fasteners, but only a few ballast stones and an assemblage of wrought-iron, breech-loading swivel guns. Archeologists have never located this type of swivel gun in a dateable context—besides a single gun La Belle (1686), which was wrecked in Matagorda Bay, Texas.  These guns are dated to 1450-1550 in European museums. The grouping of this style of swivel gun in Dry Tortugas demonstrates how older, cheaply-made guns crafted around the time of the Spanish Armada (1588) armed the rails of treasure galleons in 1622 because of a decline in the Spanish economy. Without archaeology, we would never know the aspects of history that slip into the sea.

Let's scoot back to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year 79. Pompeii was buried under a thick layer of ash and lava. A thick layer -- 19 feet!  Pompeii is the world's oldest archaeological dig. It was a gem of a dig!  Archeologists began digging Pompeii in 1748. Because of this volcanic ash blanket, scientists were able to see, literally what people were eating and drinking the moment the volcano blew. Remember your World Civ class we learned about the intact frescos and sculpture. This exploration is how “fast food” counters were held in tact…They were called thermopolia. They were for the poor and working class. The rich were fond of parties in their home--as if a series of catering events.  One quick note. Several of Holy Guacamole's listeners say the history of hospitality, laid out, is giving them perspective. Perspective on how they run their business, how they craft their menu, and how they craft the experience a guest has.

We all come from different backgrounds, yet we all find a passion in bourbon. One of the most intriguing stories I have ever been introduced to is from our guest today, Caroline Paulus. Her first love and her area of study is archeology. She had no idea that coming to Kentucky from Wisconsin on a dig would lead her into a new career in bourbon. She is fascinated with the history of whiskey and that has made her become one of the leading authorities when it comes to analyzing dusties. As the whiskey historian at Justin's House of Bourbon and senior editor for The Bourbon Review, she tells her story about falling into this line of work and some stories about running one of the best stores dedicated to bourbon in Kentucky.

As we turn our eyes to the skies, searching the vastness of space, and turn the same to annals of UFO history in the 1940s, we sometimes forget that the proof many of us wish to discover of official disclosure may be far more demonstrable through accounts of human civilization. At the very least, we should not forget who we are and where we came from, or abandon pursuits of these discoveries, in exchange for proving the existence of a totally otherworldly non-human race. New finds are already changing our history by the day, from a 3,400 year-old Mittani empire-city merging from the Tigris River to fossilized footprints dating towards the begging, rather than end, of the Australopithecus era. Compounding a 2021 discovery of abundant life under the Ekström shelf and a new discovery of the same under the Larsen ice shelf, mixed with what we are rapidly learning about UFOs again for the first time in decades, life-as-we-know-it is really life-as-we-knew-it. Scientists tend to reject certain archeological finds and the like because they fail to conform to preconceived notions of fact. Archeologists tend to do the same as do some with strong religious beliefs. Others, seeing the rejection as both ignorance and conspiracy, tend to accept new discoveries at face value while failing to question their validity. This desire to believe can, and is, weaponized to spread false narratives and further confuse the historical record.

I’m only really a happy camper when I’m far away from other campers – whether they are happy or not. It’s been awhile since I’ve camped, but I prefer solitude when seeking solitude. But as regional populations grow and more people are also seeking solitude, it’s harder and harder to ‘get away from it all.’Car-camping definitely doesn’t do it for me. Especially now that most everyone has a phone blasting music through a Bluetooth speaker. I’ve seen some campers with solar panels, a satellite dish, and a TV blasting the news or sports. As night falls, and the alcohol comes out, I imagine I’d be laying there wondering where the nearest hotel is. And as the sun rises the kids start crying, hangry parents begin yelling, and cars fire up as people start heading out…presumably to get some rest.I admit it’s more fun when you’re with a bigger crowd of family or friends. The revelry is more tolerable when it’s coming from within your circle. Sure that one uncle may be a bit obscene, but he’s family. These kids running around may seem obnoxious, but weren’t we all? I can imagine indignantly brushing off our loudness with, “at least we’re laughing.”I remember as a kid growing up in Iowa camping with a friend and his family in their spacious camper-trailer. They had been doing it years and had made friends with other camper-trailer families. They’d roam together from campsite to campsite over the camping season. On the first night, around dinner time, I remember being handed a wooden spoon and sauce pan. My friend’s dad looked at me holding a skillet in one hand and a hefty metal BBQ spatula in the other, and said, “Just follow me.”He stepped out of the trailer and started banging the spatula against the skillet. I followed along with the rest of the family playfully pounding my pot. It was then I realized we were being subsumed by a cacophonous cavalcade of culinary clanging campers. As we descended upon the campsite of an unsuspecting family, I realized I was participating in some kind of tribal ritual. It turned out this was their first night camping in their shiny new trailer; another member of the tribe, initiated. After everyone retreated back to their campers for a proper use of utensils, we regathered again; but this time around a common fire. We shared and prepared ingredients for another North American tribal ritual – S’mores.The desire to come together around a campfire in the great outdoors is as old as Homo sapians. The welcoming ritual I participated in signaled cooperation; it acknowledged a trust between people who were not blood related. It’s an interaction of people and place that consecrates a common bond that is strong enough to incent people to repeat this ritual of cohabitating, and sometimes confabulating, around a fire.These people share common ideals, backgrounds, desires, and sometimes even food. But for our prehistoric hunter-gather ancestors, the gathering and sharing of food was the top priority. The concentration of other families and tribes in a common space evolved to be a worthwhile endeavor. Close proximity with cooperative individuals resulted in sharing knowledge. Locals could offer advice on growing or gathering edibles and how best to hunt animals. (or assemble S’mores)Labor could be divided, exchanges could be made, and rich – though often simple and informal – socio-economic systems could flourish amidst the interaction of people and place. Soon bonds are formed, breeding between families occurs, and the circle grows. Evolution rewarded this agglomeration of people and commiserate growth of a concentric area of shared space. It formed the basis of permanent human settlements, so long as balances were struck.Over-crowded campsites, like contemporary cities, can be annoying. People are loud, some are rude, violent or selfish, and others steal – and anyone can spread illness and disease. Conflict is inevitable. Eventually, individuals and small groups decide to break away from it all. They set out to make temporary camps far away from concentrated populations of people. They may roam and hunt and gather for themselves making temporary settlements along the way. Sometimes they’d form their own settlements, while other times remain mobile. Evidence of this exists around the globe and across the history of humankind.For centuries researchers have been uncovering evidence that leads to these theories. They’ve uncovered community plans, maps, and descriptions of place. Archeologists, anthropologists, and ethnographers have written countless descriptions and interpretations of found artifacts, ecologies, and environments from research sites around the world. Over the years these fields have agreed on what they call a ‘settlement scaling theory’ – a systematic study of the conditions leading to the population dynamics of human settlement. Research demonstrates that there are traits and conditions universally common to all of humanity, but that there are also cases of particularities and uniqueness as well.SCALE IN PLACE OR SCALE YOUR SPACE?Recently an interdisciplinary group of archeologists and urban scientists decided to contribute quantitative evidence to these theories of settlement scaling. So they compile a database of over 1000 different ethnographic studies conducted and published over centuries from around the world. In February of 2022, they published a paper called Scaling of Hunter-Gatherer Camp Size and Human Sociality that proposes a mathematical model that can be used to measure human population dynamics of settlement.They derived and observed three mathematical scaling relationships looking at both settled and mobile hunter-gatherer societies.  Super-linear Growth: As concentrated populations increase it induces a greater than proportional increase in the area of the settlement. Imagine a campsite growing in population and needing to expand to make room for others.Linear Growth: When populations remain equal (or nearly equal) the area remains equal. For example, the number of campers and the size of the site remains constant.Sublinear Growth: Despite a population growing, the area remains the same or shrinks.The first two are easy to imagine, but the last one less so. If we speculate these laws could be loosely applied to our current cities, it’s easy to point to examples where the footprint of a city grows or stays the same as the population grows or stays the same. But populations growing within an existing footprint is rare. I suppose one great example is Hong Kong. They built high into the sky to house a growing population and dug deep into ground to transport them with multiple levels of trains – all while keeping the perimeter of the city proportionally relatively constant.A more ancient example offered by the researchers was found right here in the Pacific Northwest. The Haida, Kwakiutl, Nootka and Tlingit people along the Northwest coast all built permanent or semi-permanent settlements with growing populations despite the area of their settlements growing accordingly. They write,“Mollusk collecting, harvesting of salmon and acorn stocks, organized communal hunting of sea mammals or terrestrial large game, gathering of nuts and berries, developed storage technologies, and a variety of sociopolitical and ritual institutions enabled societies on the Pacific Coast of North America to support semipermanent or permanent settlements that were inhabited for multiple years. The sublinear relationship between population and area observed in these settlements suggests that in larger settlements houses were spaced more closely together, contained more people per house, or both.”This should be a rallying cry to density advocates everywhere!These researchers claim to have included plan maps of settlements as part of their data collection, though I’m not certain how they were interpreted or coded. Sadly, most prehistoric maps are lost. Countless maps have been made by humans throughout history sketched in the dirt with a stick, marked on bark with charcoal, or inked onto animal skin. Often times maps were intended to be ephemeral or kept secret. While there are archeologists who confidently claim the rationale and meaning behind these prehistoric plan maps, some cartography historians claim they often lack the necessary surrounding evidence to be convincing.One of the oldest examples is of what archeologists have interpreted to be of a settlement along a river that are etched in the tusk of a Mammoth dating back to the Ice Age 25,000 years ago. Found in 1966 in Ukraine, the ‘map’ features four shapes that are thought to represent dwellings along the Ros River. But cartography historian Dr. Catherine Delano-Smith finds it difficult “to see a close resemblance between the features scratched onto the bone and the excavated mammoth bone dwellings whichever way the drawing is oriented.” In other words, it’s unclear whether this is really a map.A better candidate for a true surviving prehistoric map are the plan view maps from the Stone Age, roughly 12,000 years ago, in the petroglyphs of Mont Bégo in the Maritime Alps of Southern France. According to Delano-Smith these maps satisfy six or seven of the ten criteria needed to be considered a plan map by cartography historians: “Two (at least) hut signs; five enclosures (or four enclosures, one with a path across it); and three land-use signs (two forms of stippling and unstippled areas).”But another Neolithic map found on two walls in Turkey helps boost evidence of prehistoric plan maps. Delano-Smith notes that, “It would be difficult to see in this rectangular pattern anything of cartographic relevance were it not for the extraordinary resemblance of the rectangles in the wall painting to those drawn by the archaeologists as part of their excavation plan.”While Delano-Smith believes there is “no neat evolution from one type [of map] to another, either from prehistoric to historical contexts or even within the historical period,” she believes there are shared concepts and purpose of maps. This is as true for prehistorical maps as it is for, as an example, the historical medieval maps of Europe. And while there are few surviving maps from that period as well, we know more about the history that surrounds them.Of the few maps of medieval cities that remain, they all share something in common with maps that had been made for millennia prior – they feature orthogonal grids. Even the Stone Age plan map found in Turkey conforms to a loose grid. Well before surveying was invented, it appears gridded plan maps were convenient ways to virtually slice and dice land. Mapmakers, and their patrons, need not even visit the site to determine how it was to be used. One such Medieval example is a 1306 plan map of the town of Talamone in Tuscany on the west coast of central Italy.ESCAPE OR ENGAGE?As the Middle Ages gave way to the Renaissance, 15th century city plan maps proliferated alongside burgeoning European cities. They, and other historical artifacts, offer cultural clues that suggest elements of settlement behavior consistent throughout human history. For example, in 1551 a new residential development called The Strada Nuova was requested to be planned by a clan of nobility in Genoa, Italy. They wanted a neat little enclave tucked into a hillside where they wanted to move “in the proximity of relatives and dependents to a residential area based on class rather than blood.”Like suburban residential developments of today, these lots were drawn with generous amounts of room and were neatly arranged. These plots were designed by Bernardino Cantone, a city administrator who not only assessed the value of property but arranged them next to the streets he was also planning. You have to wonder if these wealthy elite suburbanites were wanting ‘to just get away from it all’ and escape with their friends from the riff-raff in the city center.It could be they were also seeking protection. Forty-four years after The Strada Nuova was first designed, nobleman Pietro Battista Cattaneo came along and modernized and fortified development. Cattaneo brought a new approach to urban planning that was rooted in survey technology. His plans included specific dimensions and were oriented like a proper map complete with a compass rose. His transformation plan for the Strada Nuova Development is considered the oldest surviving example of a full city plan.The complex and detailed city plans of the Renaissance are a graphical record of a built environment that a) affords privacy to concentrated settlements of unrelated people and b) regulates interactions between people and place. These two factors in the emergence of permanent settlement suggest to those urban scientists in search of scaling patterns a watershed moment “in human development that made possible the open-ended accumulation of social products, in the form of stocks of knowledge and goods.”They “conclude that longer-term camps and eventually permanent settlements require both energetically and socially favorable conditions, which can be realized in different ways in different physical environments and through cultural/social conventions/structures. Failure to realize break-even (or better) levels of energetic and social production simultaneously will lead to periods of alternating group fission and fusion.”   They also emphasize their mathematical models are just that – models. They warn against a polarizing of interpretations of human behavior that is hard to describe and explain mathematically. Nonetheless, their research, like the traditional research they drew from, “steers a course between claims of universality for common human social and cultural traits and claims of particularism and uniqueness for individual cases.”I do wonder how these scaling laws relate to the fact European cities today continue to sprawl despite their populations declining. Have they failed to ‘realize break-even (or better) levels of energetic and social production simultaneously?’ Are we seeing an alternating from the ‘fusion’ of populations in these cities starting with the Renaissance to a recent ‘fission’ of settlements that are leap-frogging from the ill effects of the so-called Anthropocene? Or are elites just seeking another Strada Nuova?And surely there’s something to be learned from those coastal tribes of the Pacific Northwest who managed to grow and prosper as a population and as a culture without increasing their footprint. Perhaps more investigations into urban sublinear scaling are what is needed for us to draw new plan maps of our cities to achieve sustainable living. If we don’t do something, none of us will be happy campers. We’re already becoming loud, rude, and annoying. And that’s before the alcohol. The plan maps of the 50s and 60s, their dependency on cars, the insistence of developing countries to emulate them, and a collective human desire to increase consumption and comfort in settlements worldwide has led to humanity exceeding the carrying capacity of our only campsite – planet earth.There are some who want to escape and colonize Mars, but I’m sticking with the evidence and opinion of these researchers when they conclude that the societal costs of agglomeration, “must be overcome through social or technological innovations.” Those innovations include “property rights, food production, group rituals, political institutions, substantial shelters, and more.” Only when these transformations occur will the “open-ended densification [of] permanent settlements [] emerge.” Only then will we be happy campers.

Ep. 154 Unexplained Mass Disappearances   Today we're talking about unsolved stuff…but in a different way. We're talking about unexplained mass disappearances. How can large numbers of people just disappear without a trace? Where'd they go? Why'd they go? Did somebody make them leave? Bigfoot again? Aliens? Supernatural? Chainsaw? We may never know….but that won't stop us from discussing, speculating, and inevitably making really bad jokes on today's episode. So all aboard bitches let's roll!   Let us begin back…back…waaaaay back in 1918. We're talking about the USS Cyclops. Aside from having a great name, it fits the bill on mass disappearances. USS Cyclops (AC-4) was the second of four Proteus-class colliers built for the United States Navy several years before World War I. A collier is a fancy name for a big ass coal cargo ship. The USS Langley, the first aircraft carrier in the US Navy, was a converted collier. This was actually the second ship to bear the name Cyclops. She had been swimming around hauling coal and helping refugees between the Baltic sea, the Bahamas, and Mexico since 1910. In 1917 she was covered to help haul troops and coal all over the world during WW1.  In March 1918, the ship was given a new cargo: tons and tons of dense manganese ore, used in steelmaking. She left Brazil loaded up with the brittle metal, then voyaged to Barbados to resupply for the long journey home to Baltimore. That's where things get interesting. On the journey home something went wrong and the ship was never heard from again. Not even an sos. The last known transmission from the Cyclops was "weather fair, all well" at the beginning of the trip home. When the ship did not reach Baltimore a massive search was undertaken. Every naval ship from Cuba to Puerto Rico was sent out to search for debris. At the time, given it was during the war, the general consensus was that she was sunk by the Germans. But during the search, ships could not find any debris field that would be evident if it was torpedoed. In fact no one found anything…anything at all. It seemed the ship just disappeared. 306 people were just… gone. It remains to this day, the single largest loss of life in the history of the United States Navy that did not directly involve combat! Wow that's pretty crazy. So what exactly happened? Well there are theories abound my friends!    First there is a mini conspiracy theory that the captain sabotaged the ship or even took it all the way to Germany! Why, you ask? Well let us tell you. It is said that the crew was unhappy with the captain. You see, Captain Worley was hated by his staff and officers and was accused of being pro German. It was discovered later that Worley was actually German born and had changed his name at some point. It's not known why he changed his name. On top of that, the US Consulate General of Rio, named Gottschalk, boarded the ship with 73 other local sailors. Gottschalk was very popular with the German community in Brazil. Couple this with the fact that upon leaving Brazil, the ship was said to have been overloaded and people began to speculate. They say that Worley and Gottschalk purposely sabotaged the ship in some way to favor the Germans back home. Either that or the thought is that they essentially stole the crew and cargo and headed back to Germany. Seems plausible, until you try and figure how a few men could have forced 300 men to go back to Germany.  There are several theories of the ship being struck by a rogue wave or breaking up at sea. One sailor reported when they reached Rio, that on the way, the deck of the ship would sway when the ship was struck with large waves. He says the ship was showing signs of structural failure. Could that have been the issue? If so…where was the debris? Another theory was that the ship was overloaded and ran into a storm in which the unstable ship overturned and sank to the bottom of the ocean. Again…why no debris though?   For a BBC Radio 4 documentary, Tom Mangold had an expert from Lloyds investigate the loss of the Cyclops. The expert noted that manganese ore, being much denser than coal, had room to move within the holds even when fully laden, the hatch covers were canvas, and that when wet, the ore can become a slurry. As such, the load could shift and cause the ship to list. Listing is caused by the off-centerline distribution of weight aboard due to uneven loading or to flooding. By contrast, roll is the dynamic movement from side to side caused by waves. If a listing ship goes beyond the point where a righting moment will keep it afloat, it will capsize and potentially sink. Combined with a possible loss of power from its one engine, it could fill with water and go down in bad weather.   Then there's our personal favorite…the Bermuda triangle just straight fucked it up and aliens took it. That's right passengers…this happened in the infamous Bermuda triangle!!! So of course there are numerous theories involving the Bermuda triangle and supernatural goings on.  Most of these Bermuda triangle theories involve either aliens coming down and abducting the ship and crew, or aliens under the ocean coming up and claiming the ship for themselves. We here at the train, well at least Moody, think that this is the most plausible explanation of course.    So what do you guys think? Aliens?.... Yea it was aliens…   Ok so up next we're heading up to the great white north. For those of you who don't know…that's Canada.. You know America's hat. Anyway.. we're looking at the lake Anjikuni incident. The telling of this mystery was taken from mysterioustrip.com.  Anjikuni Lake is located deep in the Kivallig area of rural Nunavut in Canada. Placed near the Kazan River, the lake is perfect for fishing and trout. Anjikuni fastly became a home for the Inuit tribe; it developed soon into a colony and became popular almost instantly on a cold November day in 1930. Joe Labelle, a Canadian fur trapper, was more than an efficient individual who spent a lot of time doing outdoor activities. He was very familiar with the area; he knew that the people established a community. Joe was acquainted with the Inuit stories of wood ghosts that were reportedly harmful, and this remote part was soaked in the tales of the Wendigo. Labelle generally didn't have any fear or anxiety; however, this specific night at the lake became different. The full moon was casting a spooky luminosity all over the village, and no one was moving. The Huskies that were usually loud with the influx of travelers were quiet as well. The only sound he could hear was of his own steps made on the snow and the concave reverb of his greeting. He quickly understood something was not normal, and he started investigating as soon as he entered the village. The village was in complete silence, and he could see no one. No noise of conversation or laughter was detected. What's worse was the complete lack of smoke originating from chimneys that denoted the presence of living beings.   Joe noticed a fire at a distance and went towards it to inspect; the fire seemed to be burning for a significant amount of time. Upon further investigation, he found that someone started their supper preparations; however, they didn't finish making it. LaBelle continued towards the village, ready to bump into someone who could tell her what was really happening here. Joe, stepping out of his uncontrollable feelings, began an investigation into the Inuit's homes to search for any clues related to the silence and made a sudden and quick decision to leave the village.   He found that several homes were well-stocked with food and weapons; he further found a burnt meal in another house. In one spot, he found a repair of a junior sealskin that was yet to be finished. Sadly, he couldn't conclude anything.   As there wasn't any conclusive answer concerning what took place, it must certainly have been an unexpected event that spread widely and involved all 30 men, women & children in the village. Food, clothing, and weapons were left behind. But Why? There was no answer   More investigation directed him to a pair of findings that was enough to give him goosebumps. To the extent that he was able to tell, whatever happened, had happened recently.   He examined the entire village and found no new traces in the snow apart from his own. The most ghastly discovery he made was of the dogs. Seven of them had starved to death. This evidence was enough to persuade him to head to the nearest telegraph office located farther away. That would mean that Joe had to overlook basic requirements such as shelter and food; however, he was in a hurry to leave the place and seek assistance. As beaten and frostbitten as Labelle was, he finally stumbled into the telegraph office. In a few minutes, he sent an emergency message to the nearest RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) camp. By the time the Mounties reached, many hours later, Labelle had calmed himself enough to talk about his distressing stories.   According to 1984's article – The world's most significant UFO mysteries, written by Roger Boar and Nigel Blundell– the Mounties, when on their way to the Angikuni Lake mystery, took a bit of time to rest at a shack alongside a trapper and his two sons. They explained to the trapper and his sons that they are heading towards Anjikuni Lake to solve a ‘problem.' The Mounties asked the trapper if he had seen anything strange these past few days. Upon asking this question, the trapper was compelled to admit that he and his two sons had noticed an eerie luminous object flying all over the sky a few days ago. He further stated that he had seen giant, gleaming ‘flying objects' changing shape right before their eyes. And this object was flying towards the village at Anjikuni lake.   So did this event even happen? Or was LaBelle making it up. According to skeptoid.com( see we look at both sides equally) here are a number of things about the Joe Labelle story that raise red flags. For one thing, it happened in November, when average temperatures are 13°C degrees below freezing. Angikuni Lake is a sheet of ice; kayaks pulled up on the beach would not be "battered by wave action". The very presence of kayaks so far inland is suspect, though not impossible. Migratory Inuit would often park their kayaks to hunt caribou. These eastern Iglulik kayaks were made of sealskin stretched over willow branches. But the small Angikuni Lake is landlocked so far inland on the Barrens that neither willow nor sealskin were available, and this would be, by far, the farthest inland that the historical use of Iglulik kayaks would have ever been documented. Not impossible, but highly suspect.   Labelle described a permanent settlement, a "friendly little Eskimo village" of "about thirty inhabitants" that he'd known "for many years". A statement from the Mounted Police says "A village with such a large population would not have existed in such a remote area of the Northwest Territories." They had left sealskin garments behind, in a region where there was caribou hide rather than sealskin; and as a trapper Labelle should have been able to identify it properly. So there was either a series of quite improbable circumstances, or Labelle was wrong.    Today, no physical evidence exists of a village at Angikuni Lake, and nobody has ever published an account of going up there and clearing away any remnants. So we have to rely on documentary evidence to find the true history of the vanishing village.   So with all the contradictory evidence what is real and what isn't. Was there a group of Inuits that completely disappeared or was it a tall tale? Could it be a combination of both and the truth is somewhere in the middle? Who knows…either way…crazy story! Next up we head to Brazil and the village of Hoer Verde! We got the following info mostly from coolinterestingstuff.com. The Mysterious legend of Hoer Verde, the town with 600 inhabitants that vanished, is certainly confusing and troubling.   The case will cause you to ask questions, questions like “how can anything like that ever happen with absolutely no evidence to suggest anything unusual had happened?”   Like so many legends from the area, information on Hoer Verde is difficult to track down. But what information is accessible is not only disturbing, but incredibly perplexing.   As visitors to the village entered the small town they were immediately struck by how dead everything was. Unlike other villages of six hundred no one was walking through the streets.   Hanging signs waved in the gentle wind creaking noisily juxtaposed with the uneasy footsteps and subdued whispers of those passing through. As they passed by local houses and looked in the windows it was evident immediately that something wasn't right. No one was anywhere to be seen.   The police were called, and investigators descended on the town to look through the village. As they came to the town's school they found a gun, which they took to be forensically examined. And then the investigators looked to the blackboard on which the words, “There is no salvation” were written. After a cursory examination, they realized that it had been fired the day before, but by whom they were unsure.   A manhunt ensued for the 600 villagers in the small town. Despite this, no trace of any of the locals was ever unearthed.   As newspaper reports of the town's disappearance reached the west it was considered a curiosity, but with the shifting political climate of Brazil in 1923 it was considered possible that the town had evacuated to avoid conflict with guerrillas.   Another mysterious element is the original language of the phrase “There is no salvation.” Though the phrase has been largely translated into English, the phrase holds little significance in English or Portuguese. However, if the words had been “Illic est haud salus.” in Latin or some variation of it, this could have been related to the phrase “Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus” which is a Catholic phrase meaning “Outside the Church there is no salvation.” If this was the case in a largely Catholic area, the lesson could have been a religious lesson which was interrupted by some unknown force, but with no specific significance itself.    So what happened…we don't know…but you know there are some crazy theories!!   Let's start with the most bizarre theory that is floating around. This theory states the 600 residents of Hoer Verde were swallowed by a black hole taking them all to a fourth dimension. yes…that's a theory. Along those lines there's the inevitable alien abduction talk. Could aliens have really come down and abducted 600 people? We like to think so but who knows.    The next  theory people point to is the political landscape in Brazil leading to soldiers or revolutionaries forcing all the villagers to evacuate. The only thing is the villagers disappeared in 1923. There was no civil war going on at the time, as is sometimes referred to with the legend. Also the revolution didn't occur until 1930 and another occurred in 1932. In neither case was a village of 600 reported to be wiped out or relocated.    And then there's the issues of the names of the towns, one town is completely nameless in the legend while Hoer Verde is a rather strange name for a village or town in Brazil, for one Verde translates to green from Portuguese to English but Hoer is not a word in Portuguese. It seems to be a Dutch word that is a derogatory word for sex workers.   Second, the legend states the town has been forgotten to time but one source we found says they were able to find multiple lists of towns and villages dating back to the 16th century for Brazil. No name comes close to Hoer Verde except for Ouro Preto, which translates to black gold and the history for it goes back to 1698.   So this story is pretty crazy huh. Well turns out it may also be completely made up. There's been a research dive that traces the origins of this story to a fairly recent article in a sketchy Russian newspaper written by a man named Mikhaylov Andrei. To put this guy into perspective, in the same article he blames the disappearance at the colony of Roanoke on protoplasm coming from the ocean and devouring the people off the colony…yea…he claims it happens every few millennia. So while the myth of Hoer Verde lives on…it may just be that…a myth!   Next up we are gonna look at the Moche civilization. Information for this tale we got from an article on Fodors.com. The Moche culture remains one of the most mysterious unknowns of Peruvian history, and with the more prominent Incas filling up most of the pages in the history books, the Moches do not receive as much attention. The Moche believed in gory human sacrifice and produced famously beautiful pottery, built huge, bizarre brick pyramids and had a complex and efficient irrigation system. Some of the aqueducts are still in use today.   All researchers can glean from the Moche civilization is through a collection of artistic masterpieces from archaeological digs, writings from Spanish invaders (the Moche did not use a predominant written language), and other fragments left behind in Peru's northern coastal regions. The Moche civilization lived and flourished along the northern coast of Peru from the 1st to the 8th century A.D., with their highest concentration of residents in the popular Trujillo region and Chicama valley. Due to the riches of this land, which included access to sturdy clay and precious metals, the Moche civilization accumulated significant wealth and power during this pre-Incan period. At the foot of the Cerra Blanca Mountain, Moche's capital city covered 300 hectares, or 3 million square meters of an opulent environment that offered residents a tight community of people, storehouses, open plazas, and ramps for easy entry to multiple-level structures. The upper elite also planned fields surrounding the city (indicating a class-based society). Building this capital took the Moches 600 years to complete and involved no fewer than six construction phases.          In addition, the capital included two now-famous pyramids often open to tourists today: the Huaca Del Sol (Temple of the Sun), a structure standing more than 50 meters in height and encompassing an area of 340 by 160 meters, and the Huaca De La Luna (Temple of the Moon), built using millions of adobe bricks. Which, if you know anything about photoshop, is quite a feat. Researchers believed both were used as prodigious religious tombs.     Although monuments and temples remain for archeologists to research today, most of the tangible objects left behind by the Moches were artistic, creative artifacts full of intricate designs and pops of bold colors. Considered skillful metalworkers and adept potters, the Moches produced sophisticated headdresses made of real gold for their goddesses, jewelry of valuable metals, chest plates to show prestige, textiles for ornamentation and wardrobe, utensils for eating, and tools for working in the fields.           In 700 A.D., the Moches moved their capital city to Pampa Grande in the Lambayeque Valley, approximately 40 miles from the Pacific Ocean. They constructed this city to include large pyramids and temples made of dirt using a method called chamber and fill, which allowed loose dirt to clump into cribbed walls. No one knows exactly why the Moche civilization eventually disappeared. Many researchers believe El Niňo caused substantial damage to the fields and irrigation systems, as they found confirmation of flooding at every single ceremonial site. (The chamber and fill approach appeared to hurt them significantly.) Archeologists also think the Moches abandoned Pampa Grande quickly and as they left, set their city on fire—but why?   The El Nino mentioned above is a prevailing theory. It is said that it was…wait for it… A SUPER EL NINO!!!!! So basically the easiest way to describe it is that the Moche faced 30 years of flood condition weather and rain followed by 30 years of drought conditions. Harsh. Some say this led to an issue with fertile soil so the citizens couldn't really dig, plant and grow crops. Also, because of the El nino theory, Dramatic changes in the ocean's environment could also be one of the reasons why the Moche, an early pre-Columbian civilization in Peru, fell apart over 1000 years ago.    No one is 100 percent sure what happened to the Moche. The Moche are not the only civilization to have disappeared without a discernible reason. They are scattered throughout history and the world from the Aztalan civilization in the American West to the inhabitants of great Zimbabwe. The disappearances of civilizations is definitely an interesting topic overall.   Changing the tone a bit, we're next going to look at an airliner that disappeared with 95 military personnel on board. Flying Tiger Line Flight 739, a Lockheed Super Constellation airliner, was scheduled to transport 96 military personnel from the US to Vietnam and disappeared on March 16, 1962.    According to the military, the men were under orders to relieve soldiers in Saigon tasked with training Vietnamese troops to fight the Viet Cong guerillas. As such, the flight was operated by the Military Air Transport Service (MATS). A few stopovers were made along the route—one in Honolulu, one in Wake Island, and a final one in Guam. With nine and half hours of fuel remaining, their final stretch was estimated to take around six hours. Sadly, however, they were never seen again.   Guam Centre grew concerned when the flight failed to make its scheduled position report at 15:30. They attempted to contact the aircraft without luck. When the flight also failed to make its destination, a distress status was initiated, and one of the largest search and rescue operations to date commenced. The search was conducted by the U.S. Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and Marines and covered more than 200,000 square miles. It came up empty, and nearly 60 years later, not a trace of the flight has been found.    Strangely, another MATS-operated Super Connie in the Flying Tiger Line, this one carrying secret military cargo, also met with tragedy that day. Departing from the same airport at roughly the same time as Flight 739, Flight 7816 (N6911C) crashed during an attempted instrument approach to Adak Island, Alaska. Of the seven people on board, six crew members suffered minor injuries, and one died after becoming trapped in the fire. The timing of the incident with Flight 739's disappearance raised many red flags.   The only potential clue to Flight 739's fate came from onboard a Liberian tanker, the SS T L Linzen, where witnesses noticed vapor trails moving west and disappearing into a layer of cumulus clouds. A few seconds later, they observed a large, two-pulse explosion, followed by two fireballs falling from the sky at different speeds. The ship's radar flagged a target approximately 17 miles from its current position, or roughly 500 miles off the coast of Guam. The location fell in line with the approximate flight path of 739, so search and rescue operations gave focus to the area. It is in the remote Pacific Ocean, so it's a wonder that anyone witnessed the event at all.    The idea of a Super Connie exploding mid-flight was too improbable for aircraft experts to believe, leading many to the conclusion of sabotage. For one, L-1049Hs were not known to have any fuel problems or electrical issues near fuel tanks. Additionally, nothing on board would have been powerful enough to blow apart. So, if the plane did explode, the theory goes, it would likely have been caused by impact with an external force, such as a meteor or, more sinisterly, a missile. With the United States in the throes of the Vietnam and Cold Wars, proponents of the shoot-down theory have pointed toward the Soviet Union as a possible villain in this scenario.    Assuming the explosion was unrelated, another possibility is that the flight was hijacked and those onboard taken hostage. However, the kidnappers would have likely made demands for the men's release at some point, and such demands never came—or were at least not made public knowledge. Kidnapping theories are common with disappearances of aircraft, including Malaysia Flight 370.    For surviving families, the most popular theory has always been that the men were part of a secret military operation gone awry. This is supported by claims that they left behind important items, such as their IDs and wedding bands, and gave long, drawn-out goodbyes—as if they knew they were never coming back. Still desperate for answers, some family members recently attempted to submit their DNA to the military database used to identify bodies found abroad. The government denied those requests, citing legal reasons. It has also denied decades of pleading to have the servicemen's names added to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall, remaining adamant that they were never part of any war mission.   Maintenance problems had already been addressed while the plane was in Guam, but it's rare for a mechanical issue to cause an explosion, though it can't be completely ruled out—likewise with sabotage. While neither option can be dismissed entirely, there's no evidence that they happened.    The missile theory is also speculative. If an enemy had chosen to shoot down this flight, who would that have been? The Soviet Union, which was a Cold War adversary, was the only other nation capable of downing a high-flying plane mid-ocean. But why would the Soviets have done it? And why in such a remote expanse of the Pacific? There's no clear motive and no evidence to support such a claim. A more likely explanation is the explosion of ordinance, accidentally or as an act of sabotage by some unknown actor, aboard the secret military flight.    In late 2020, surviving family members constructed a monument in South Portland, Maine, honoring the servicemen of Flight 739. We got most of this indoor from a cool article on planeandpilotmag.com   How about some of your favorite quick hitters!   SS WARATAH   In July 1909, the SS Waratah was heading for Cape Town, South Africa, on its way back from Melbourne, Australia, making a scheduled stop in Durban on the way. It was carrying over 200 people, both passengers and crew, but as it left port to complete its journey, one passenger elected to remain behind.    Engineer Claude Sawyer had made many journeys by sea, and he was so concerned by the behavior of this brand new ship that he disembarked in Durban and sent a message to his wife describing the ship as "top heavy." The Waratah left port at 8 a.m. on July 26, and headed into rough seas for its journey to Cape Town. At 6 a.m. the following day it overtook another ship, the Clan McIntyre, and exchanged signals, before the Waratah disappeared into the distance, never to be seen or heard from again.    According to the Master of a vessel called the Clan McIntyre, when the Waratah passed him, his ship was sailing into nine meter waves and a violent storm. Two ships later claimed to have seen bodies and debris in the water, however nothing was ever actually recovered.    An expedition sponsored by author Clive Cussler claimed to have found the ship in the 1980s. However, when the searchers eventually reached the wreck, they actually discovered a World War II transport vessel instead. The mystery of the SS Waratah's fate remains.   AZTALAN INDIANS   Just outside the small town of Lake Mills in south central Wisconsin, on the banks of the Crawfish River, lie the remains of a Native American city called Aztalan. The Wisconsin settlers who discovered it in 1836 named it "Aztalan" due to a misplaced assumption that the Native Americans who lived there had a connection to the Aztecs.   The ancient city contained stepped pyramids, conical mounds, evidence of housing, fishing, and farming, and even a substantial defensive stockade wall containing up to 30 watchtowers. And according to local legend, they even built large stone pyramids in the bottom of what's now called Rock Lake in Lake Mills. But the valley was later flooded, meaning that evidence to prove this legend true is hard to come by.    At its peak, Aztalan would been occupied by around 500 people between 700 to a thousand years ago. But at some point after 1300 AD, the site was mysteriously abandoned, and no one really knows why.    According to an article published by Wisconsin Natural Resources Magazine, evidence points to a few different theories about their fate: a lack of resources, drought, and violence from other nearby Native American settlements.    Despite a very obvious intention of these early Wisconsinites to remain — nothing says "I'm staying!" like a large defensive wall — they're now nothing more than local history and legend.   ROMAN 9TH LEGION   The Ninth Legion was a Roman military formation of around 5,000 soldiers stationed in York in Northern England during Rome's occupation of Britain. This unit maintained control of the wild inhabitants of what would later become northern England and Scotland. In 108 AD, an inscription in the City of York places the legion in the city. However, 50 years later, when a new record of the legions was completed, no mention of the ninth appeared   What could've happened to erase the existence of 5,000 soldiers? No one really knows.   According to a Roman writer, many Roman soldiers were killed in Britain at the beginning of the second century, necessitating several reinforcements. This included the arrival of a new Legion, the Sixth, in 122 AD, which took up residence in the now presumably empty York.    No records describe the Ninth Legion's fate. Some theories suggest the Legion was simply sent elsewhere, though there's little evidence to support this. Meanwhile, Emperor Hadrian visited the British Isles at the beginning of the second century. To take control of the Briton-on-Roman violence, he ordered the construction of a 73 mile long, 15 foot high, fortified wall across the island to keep the invaders out of Roman territory. And you don't go doing that unless you've got a good reason — like say losing an entire legion.    Hadrian's wall still stands today. However, there's still no sign of the ultimate fate of the Ninth legion — and there probably never will be.   SS POET   The SS Poet was a former World War II troop transport that was mothballed for 20 years after the war, before being bought and converted to carry cargo. Considered "old but sturdy" in October 1980, the ship had an experienced crew of 34 men — including the captain who'd been at sea for 41 years — when it mysteriously disappeared.   On the morning of October 24, 1980, the SS Poet sailed from Philadelphia with a load of corn bound for Egypt, where it was due to arrive on November 9. As it passed Cape Henlopen later the same morning, the Poet sent its last message before heading out into the Atlantic, and into history.   The following day a storm blew up in the North Atlantic with 30 foot waves and 60 mph winds. But for a ship like the Poet that shouldn't have mattered. When the storm finally passed it left behind no trace of the Poet, no debris, and no distress signal was ever heard.   A popular explanation for the loss proposes an undiscovered hull leak that would have caused the ship to become unstable and founder in the bad weather. However with no evidence to back that up, fingers were soon pointed at the owner who had failed to report the ship missing for several days after losing contact, and at the coast guard who didn't begin a search for another four days after that. Well-built ships with experienced crews don't just vanish without cause, but that doesn't mean we'll ever know what it was.   we got these quick hitters from an article on grunge.com.

Hey, what's up! Welcome to episode 79 of Payne Points of Wealth! Markets are going crazy! They're going up, they're going down, they're going sideways! There has been a lot of volatility going nowhere fast as interest rates continue to climb higher. On top of that, we've got two-thirds of economists talking about a potential recession. We're going to tell you what we think about a recession and what we think the economy is going to do over the next 12 months. On the Tipping Point, we'll talk about investing with your emotions. Are your emotions are holding you back from making good investment decisions? Listen now to hear our advice on how to fix that!   You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... Are things worse than they've ever been? [1:19] One thing we see lacking in portfolios [5:20] The combination you want for a healthy economy [7:56] The Tipping Point [10:17] The biggest overweighting culprit [13:13]  When it's appropriate to factor in emotions [15:42] Hidden Facts of Finance [18:45] Do you have a pro-inflation portfolio? One thing we see lacking more than anything else when we look at portfolios right now is that most of them don't have what we would call a pro-inflation portfolio. There aren't enough inflation hedges in the portfolio. There are too many assets that are reliant on low-interest rates and low inflation. We're probably not going back to less than 2% inflation like we saw the last decade and interest rates aren't going back to under 1% anytime soon. It's like just not happening.  A lot of investors still want to hold onto what did well in the last 10 years. They're still on that growth trade. They still want to own all those large mega-cap stocks like Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Apple. Those stocks could go up, it's possible, but if we learned any lesson from the great tech bubble back in the late 90s'-00s' it's that a lot of these big companies like Microsoft can have a whole decade where the revenue continues to go up, the company does well, but the stock does nothing. That's one of the risks you have with a lot of these hot names. It's not that they get crushed. It's just that they don't do anything.  This week on the tipping point: Bad emotional decisions There are two huge emotions in investing. Fear and greed! Any decision made on either one of them has always historically been wrong. When it comes to making decisions about investments, it's extremely emotional.  A lot of times when you make decisions, you think you're being logical but you're actually being emotional. When you act emotionally you end up making bad decisions about how to allocate your capital. So in this episode, we talk about some of the bad emotional decisions we can make and how to protect ourselves from...well...ourselves. Removing emotion will help you make good, pragmatic, long-term decisions to create wealth over time and reach financial independence. Go listen now to see if maybe you are allowing emotions to damage your portfolio, and what to do if you are! This week's hidden facts of finance From 2000 to 2010 emerging markets appreciated more than 16% a year. Whereas commodities returned about 6% a year and the NASDAQ only returned 1.6% a year. Fast forward from 2010 to now, the NASDAQ has returned 17% a year and emerging markets have only returned 3% a year, and commodities -0.15% a year. How times change! Archeologists discovered prehistoric human remains, ceremonial artifacts, and possibly the footprint of an ancient dwelling on the site of a planned 75 story residential condo tower in Miami. Talk about holding back project deadlines! 55 years ago, the photo session for the Beetles. Sgt Pepper's album cover took place. It cost nearly 3000 pounds, which was a huge sum at the time when album covers typically cost around 50 pounds. Over the long term, history shows the stock market has returned about twice as much as residential real estate. The S&P 500 returned, 12.47% annually from 1972 to 2021 vs only 5.41% for residential housing.

Slideshow for this message is available Introduction John 19-20 Last week we talked about the irony of the crucifixion. If you recall, irony is this powerful literary device where what appears to be the case on the surface is not actually the case. Where the characters in the story are enveloped in one understanding, but if there were a full understanding, if the reality was revealed to them, they would be astonished. Last week we looked at the crucifixion narrative itself. We looked at what happened, the trials, the mocking, the nails, the pain and torture, the wrath of the father poured out upon his Son and ended with the words, “It is finished.” Today we are going to be looking at what happened between the words, “It is finished” on Friday and “He has risen from the dead” on Sunday morning. And much like the crucifixion, what appears to be the case and what is actually the case are two completely different things. Today in the text we have this irony. You have the surface reading which is nothing more than biology. And then you have these deeper reading of theology. Biologically, Men struck Jesus to end his life. That's one judgment. The judgment of men. Theologically, God struck Jesus to redeem our life. That's the judgment of God. Picture with me that moment on the cross when Jesus bows his head and says, “It is finished.” I think, had you been standing there, you would literally feel a shutter run through nature. The other gospel writers fill in the white spaces between verse 30 where we ended last week and verse 31 where we begin this week. Matthew, Mark and Luke all record that the temple curtain was torn at this point. Do you remember Zechariah from the beginning of the book of Luke? He was chosen to enter into the holy of holies. This only occurred once a year, and according to Scripture, this had to occur on Nissan 14 at twilight. If you harmonize the time references in the gospels, this offering of incense for the sins of the people was probably taking place or about to take place exactly as Jesus speaks these words. So you can imagine the drama. Many priests are assembled to perform what undoubtedly in their minds is the most important priestly duty of the year. They are getting ready to send in the man who was chosen by lot to offer incense, they are tying some bells around his feet and rope around his waist in case he enters the temple unclean and is struck down by God, when suddenly the 60 foot wide 30 feet tall 8 inch thick curtain tears from top to bottom. I just imagine all the priest staring in silence at this gaping hole, looking at the holy of holies, and then one guy saying, “uh, now what do we do?” We also know that a great earthquake takes place and dead men rising from their tombs. Two extra-biblical sources also mention strange things happening during this time. For whatever its worth, Josephus who was a Jewish historian who lived around the time of Christ, records that there was a mysterious extinction of the center and prominent candle in the golden candlestick. Josephus as well as the Talmud both say that in connection with the earthquake, the two large gates of the temple were swung open. Luke also records that the Soldier who was guarding Jesus, who undoubtedly had witnessed many crucifixions, when he witnessed the supernatural events surrounding Jesus' death concluded, “Surely this must have been the Son of God.” And there Jesus hangs. Jesus died on a Friday. Sabbath was Saturday and since this was the Sabbath that also happened to be during the Passover week, it was extra special (hence the description, “high day.”) It was the normal practice of those who were crucified to be left on the cross for days long after they were dead. But this was not the case with Jesus. The Jews were pleading with Pilate on the basis of Deut 21 which says if you hang a man upon a tree, don't leave him there overnight because everyone who hangs on a tree is cursed. So, again, the irony…. The Jews, who apparently did not think it a problem to inaugurate the Passover feast by murdering their Messiah, were seriously alarmed to see Jesus hanging on the cross as the sun began to set because they wanted to honor God by keeping his commandments. I'm sure God was honored by their obedient hearts. And so they asked Pilate to break the legs of Jesus so that he might be taken off the cross before Sabbath began. This practice was known as crucifragium. It's hard to even imagine, but the idea is that the bones of the legs would be crushed with a hammer or mallet. Archeologist have uncovered some skeletons of crucified men with their bones broken as described here. Because the legs were broken, the victims could no longer lift themselves up with their feet and so they either died of suffocation or from the pierce of the spear which was soon to follow. The breaking of the bones was viewed as a sort of increase of punishment to compensate for what would otherwise be a much slower death. Pilate must have agreed with the Jews, possibly wanting to just get this whole nightmare over with, and so he orders the breaking of the bones. We know from the other gospel writers that Jesus was crucified between the two other criminals and so the soldiers probably started from the outside and worked their way toward the middle. After breaking the legs of the criminals they arrive in the middle only to discover that Jesus is dead. The soldier's job was to insure that the victims were truly dead before taking them down. This was an essential element in the mind of Rome. The cross was designed to put down seditionist. Once on the cross, you would die. There was no chance of escaping. In fact, if a solider took down the body of a man prematurely, and that man so much as twitched, all the soldiers assigned to guard the cross would be themselves hung on crosses. So the Roman soldier standing next to Jesus, in an effort to ensure that Jesus was truly dead thrusts his spear into the side of Jesus. This was most certainly not a prick but a deep thrust which was designed to penetrate clear to the heart. When the soldier pulled out the spear, John goes out of his way to explain that from this wound flowed blood and water. What happened here medically is not certain. And when I say, not certain, I don't mean that there are no explanations as to how these things can be so. There are many explanations, but they are not certain which particular explanation fits the narrative. The first theory says that when the solider pierced the side of Jesus the spear went through the lungs and into the heart. According to this theory the blood would have come from the heart and the water would have come from the pericardial sac. I say that like I'm an expert in pericardial sacs. Another doctor, A.F. Sava, disagrees. His theory is that blood and water was present just inside the rib cage between the pleura lining the chest and that lining of the lung. Severe chest injuries show that non-penetrating injuries of the chest are capable of producing an accumulation of fluid that had hemorrhaged in the space between the ribs and the lungs – it may amount to as much as two liters. He thinks that “the brutal scourging of Jesus several hours before his death upon the cross, was sufficient to produce a bloody accumulation with the chest, so that the settling by this fluid into layers and its ultimate evacuation by opening the chest below the level of separation must inevitably result in the ‘immediate' flow of blood followed by water.” Ultimately, how exactly this happened matters very little. What does matter is the reason John included this detail. He included this detail to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jesus actually died. When John says that out of Jesus' side flowed water he is more than likely referring to serum. Serum is part of blood and separates from blood when the heart stops beating. Or to say it another way, it is difficult to get serum when your heart is beating. The presence of water in the wound would be proof of death. So that is why this detail is included. Normally, the bodies of the crucified victims were left to hang on the cross, and then their bodies were eaten by birds and dogs. The refusal of a proper burial was a feature of crucifixion, not an accident. It was a final denial of your dignity, your humanity. But in the case of Jesus, he was—as the Gospels are at pains to point out—buried. This is not what a first-century person would expect to have happened. The text goes on to say that Joseph of Arimathea mustered up courage and approached Pilate to ask him for the body of Jesus. Joseph of Arimathea was a member of the Sanhedrin, the same ruling body of people who had illegally conspired to kill Jesus the night before. So you can understand why this happened secretly. He was scared out of his mind that his peers might find out. It seems that the timidity and weakness of faith that had prevented him from sticking up from Jesus the night before grew and now emboldened him. Since he could no longer defend Jesus as His Messiah and Lord while he was alive, he would at least show him honor in giving him a proper burial in his death. The amount of stigma associated with this kind of act can hardly be felt. But watching the boldness of Joseph of Arimathea generated courage in the heart of Nicodemus who was also a member of the Sanhedrin to partake in the burial of Jesus. The text says that Nicodemus contributed about 75 pounds worth of burial spice. This was a ridiculously lavish amount. In the Talmud there was a man named Nakdimon Ben Gorion. If this man is the same Nicodemus as mentioned in the Bible, as it seems likely it is, then he was a man of enormous wealth. And there you have it. There's what happened on the physical level, the biological level. This is the human perspective. This is what people are seeing and thinking as they are looking at the dead body of Jesus. And there's all this emotion associated with grappling with that reality. What does Mary the Mother of Jesus think? There is this incredible suffering that results in the human Spirit and these questions start surfacing. Why? Lord, why would you allow this terrible tragedy? How am I supposed to reconcile the idea that you are in control, that you have my best interest in mind, that you care for me when I'm staring into this terrible reality? How, Lord? Well we find the answer in theology. Biologically, Jesus lived a life which started in the way ours start (with a birth) and ended in the way ours end (with a burial). From a womb to a tomb, and everything in between, he lived our life. It began as ours begin, and ended as ours ended. He took the human-train all the way to its final destination, the grave. And this was entirely necessary to fulfill a THEOLOGICAL point. Every biological point - the blood, the tomb, the piercing, the water flowing - is preparation for the theological point. Did you see the theological point in the passage we read? Everything was biological with the exception of these two fulfillment passages, one from Zechariah and one from the Psalms and Numbers. John is connecting all this biology to theology. You see this man getting stabbed with a spear? You see that water and blood gushing out? That should ring a bell, you people of God. That should cause you stiffen in chair and shudder with realization. Something predicted long ago has just been accomplished. And he quotes Zechariah 12:10. Zechariah 12 In the context here, we are reading a prophecy, and God in speaking about a time yet future where the Gentile nations who have laid siege to Jerusalem will be defeated and God says, “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. *They shall look on me, on him whom they have pierced, and mourn for him as one mourns for an only child” Now notice something about the pronouns here. It's really interesting: Who is the I referring to? I will pour out… Who is the I referring to? God Who is the me referring to? They shall look on me. Who is the me? God. Now it changes from 1st person to 3rd person. They shall look on me, on him whom they have pierced. So by looking on him, this servant of God, they are looking on God. God is pierced when his representative, the Shepherd is pierced. It is a really cool evidence of the trinity in OT prophesy. The coming Messiah, the coming servant, would be God himself. Now why a pierced Messiah? That was such a confusing concept. To many the idea of a pierced Messiah would be horrible. Why would the coming servant suffer? Why would the Messiah need to be pierced? That question is answered in the second prophesy that is mentioned in the text. When the soldiers came to break the legs of Jesus they found he was already dead and so they did not break his legs and the text says that this was to fulfill the words of Scripture: Not one of his bones will be broken. This is probably a reference to either Psalms 34:20, “he keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken” but more likely, you what this is referencing? Numbers 9:12 which states that the Passover lamb was to be prepared without breaking any of the bones. You see in the cross you have these massive themes culminating. Who is this Jesus? Who is this dead man hanging on the cross. Biologically, he died like any other man. The color drained from his skin as his heart stopped beating. He's just a dead man. Ah, what appears to be the case and what is actually the case are two completely different things. This is not a normal man. This is God. That's why John has made such an effort, time and time again, to demonstrate that this man who hangs upon the cross is in fact God. This man who hangs upon the cross is YHWH. You will look on me - on HIM whom you have pierced. And in this moment, for astute OT students, two streams of OT redemptive thought come colliding together. On the one hand you had this theme of sacrifice. That God would save through sacrifice. And on the other hand you had this theme that God would save by sending a Messiah (a Savior) who would save the people. And in these fulfillment prophesies the OT student would stand their with mouth wide open realizing that the Savior had become the sacrifice. Rewind back in your mind to John chapter 1. What did John the Baptist say when he first saw Jesus, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” You see it is the death of the Passover lamb that atoned for the sins of the people. God would pass over the sins of the people by offering a lamb, a spotless lamb, a lamb whose bones had not been broken, in place of the sinner. That was accomplished in the BODY of Jesus. Listen how Colossians 1 states it. Colossians 1 Do you see what the cross has done? You are reconciled. You are brought near to GOD by his death. Remember last week we talked about Jesus, when he said, it is finished was saying, I completed the mission, I completed the work. The telos of my life has been realized. What was that work? What was that work: RECONCILIATION. There was a chasm. There was a giant chasm. A massive chasm that existed between God and man. You were alienated one from another. There was an infinite distance. You want to know what the Bible calls that infinite distance. DEATH. Where does sin lead? Sin leads to death. And how can those in death, be with God? Do you see the chasm that must be bridged? Do you see the reconciliation work that must be accomplished? Now to illustrate this, it might be helpful to take a look at the apostles creed. Many of us have recited the Apostles Creed? This creed is very old. As a matter of fact it dates to about 130 AD. It was not written by the apostles but it was written to describe the doctrine of the apostles. What is this whole idea of Jesus descending into hell. That makes a lot of people uncomfortable. What was he doing there? And yet from very early on, there was a historic confession among Christians that Jesus descended into hell. This is along side things like virgin birth, creator God, etc. So where does this idea of descending into hell come from? This word hell is important. However, as Inigo Montoya said in The Princess Bride, I do not think that word means what you think it means. In the New Testament there is a word which aligns with what we think of as “hell” - the place of separation from God, the place of eternal torment, weeping and nashing of teeth. All those horrible pictures. That's the word Gehenna. But the word in the creed is the word that refers to Sheol, or Hades, which is, more broadly, the place dead people go. It's like us saying, “he went to the grave.” We aren't commenting on his eternal state of heaven or hell. It's just the place of the dead. Let me give you just a small snippet of understanding of the Bible's view of the afterlife. In the Bible you have three realms of possible existence: heaven, earth, and under the earth. Picture a house with three stories. To be in the house means you are one of those three levels. Heaven, earth, or under the earth. Hades, Sheol, the grave is the place under the earth. It is the place of the dead. What is this place like? When the Bible describes it, it almost has a feeling of hibernation for the souls. There's maybe a small amount of consciousness but the souls are waiting until the next stage of redemptive history unfolds. And at the judgment, we are told that sheol is emptied. And everyone is resurrected, some to eternal life and some to eternal death. So it is to this place that Jesus went when he died. This is what the creed is saying. Jesus died, and as a result of being dead, he went to the place of the dead, to Hades. But as Acts 2:31 says, “he was not abandoned to Hades.” and as verse 24 says. Death could not hold him, and God raised him from among the dead. This is what we are on the cusp of celebrating in Easter: Jesus Christ returned from the dead. Do you know how rare that is? Death is a destination famous issuing one-way tickets. But Jesus Christ returns. And one of the things he does while in Hades is bring the blessing of his death to those who had died in faith before him. Have you ever wondered what happened to OT believers who died without knowing Jesus? Ephesians 4 has something to say about that. Ephesians 4 What this appears to be saying is that Jesus proclaimed to those who never had a chance to understand God's redemptive plan, what had been accomplished. And they had a chance to hear it from the mouth of the Savior himself. It also seems from 1 Peter 3 that Jesus proclaimed to those who did not die in faith that a regime change had taken place. He let his enemies know that Satan had not prevailed. And he proclaimed to them that every knee shall bow, according to Philippians 2:10, “in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth” (Philippians 2:10) Jesus now holds the keys to death and Hades (Revelation 1:17-18). The gates of Hades will not prevail over the church (Matt 16:8), because those gates have been smashed down by Jesus. What Jesus has done is make death a safe and blessed place for all who now die in him. Death is safe. Do you hear that? In the Old Testament, death is never good. It is something always to be avoided, even by those who know God. But by the time of the New Testament, a person like Paul can declare that to die is “better by far” (Philippians 1:23). The book of Revelation says “blessed are those who die in the Lord from now on” (Revelation 14:13). Why the change? Because he has conquered the place of the dead. Those who die now, because they know Jesus, die with the conscious blessing of knowing that the resurrection is just around the corner. Listen to how Hebrews 2:14-15 says it. Hebrews 2 What appears to be happening in death, what is actually happening in death are two completely different things. What has happened to all people of all time in death, for the believer, is not happening. We have been delivered from the slavery of death. Praise God. Good Friday Introduction: Now we are on the cusp of resurrection Sunday. But in terms of the church calendar, between Palm Sunday and Resurrection Sunday stands Good Friday. Now for the last several months we've been in Good Friday in terms of our study of John. So we are well immersed in this theme! But here's what we are going to do. We are going to have a very simple service. It's going to have a stripped down feel. What we are going to do is read a harmonized version of all four gospels leading leading right up to just before the resurrection. And to show you what I mean let me give you a little snippet. Here's what I mean by harmonized version. Yellow is Mt, Red is Mark, Green is Luke and Blue is John. So as we read this, no detail will be left out. And it's going to take us about 35 minutes to read it. We will take one break in that reading and do some singing. And then in the end we will take communion. It will be wonderful. So come back 7pm and let's worship through the public reading of God's Word, song and communion.
