THE THEORY OF FROZEN TIME AS PUT BY EINSTEIN AND MODERN PEOPLE LIKE GREENE, WHO WOULD LIKE TO TRAVEL BACK OR GO FORWARD IN TIME.
From a friend
I have a question that's not related to B-time. The flow of time as we experience it is called the A-theory of time. The present exists, then becomes the past as it flows into the future. Doesn't this create a contradiction? The present is always also the past of the future, and the future of the past. The present, past, and future all exist at once. This is contradictory, yet it exists. This has created a theological problem for me. It doesn't make sense for the universe to exist without a supernatural being creating it, yet at the same time, time, which is a natural phenomena, doesn't make sense in its existence, and yet it does exist. The question atheists might ask me is: "If something like time can exist as a purely natural entity, while not making any sense, then why can't something as nonsensical as the universe creating itself through only natural reasons be true?"
Time as it is does make sense. Time is based on physical things; we measure time by what's happening to physical things around us. One could argue time did not exist before the physical universe was created. For us humans then time is noticed by the events of the physical. So time in that context is very real.
You are taking it by seconds. So I sit here typing, my hands are this second above the keyboard, now next second fingers down on some letters, next second up again thinking. So we have three seconds. First is the present, next second is present and first second is past time. Then after second second I go to third second, the last two seconds becomes past time, and third second is present. So in seconds we have present, that becomes past, and the second after present is future. Future is coming as I hold my fingers above keyboard. So we have present, past and future happening one second or split second after each other.
Technically it is happening like that per se. Time is flowing from present second to past second, present second to future second, that becomes the present second that becomes the past second.
But where Greene and his kind go wrong is that it is all held or frozen as he puts, it in time. They do this because they theorize if that is so, maybe one day we can figure how to go back or forward in time. They then with their freezing take it to an hour, then a day, then a week, then a month, and then years, and then forever. They probably take it that way already.
With God it does not work that way. He freezes nothing, the past is not frozen.... IT'S GONE, NEVER TO VISIT. THE FUTURE IS not frozen, IT'S NOT YET. MY TRIP TO WALES [oh yes I'm taking my parents ashes to the grave site in our home village next Sunday, the 8th will be back on 15th] NEXT MAY 8TH IS NOT YET, I cannot visit the 8th as it is not yet, it's not future time frozen, it has not happened yet. God does not freeze past or future time, so we can somehow visit it.
God can remember the past all of it, but He's decided even He cannot go back and visit that time.....He cannot go back to David slaying Goliath like He's frozen that event and put it on a DVD disc to play and visit anytime He wants. The future He can tell you what He will do by some event, like He told the prophets His Son would be born of a woman in Bethlehem, even gave things that would lead up to that birth, so people could know the "about year" it would come to pass as they watched for the signs leading up to it. BUT GOD HAS NOT FROZEN IT in future time, it simply is NOT YET, but it WILL COME TO BE as He has predicted.
God has decided He will FREEZE no time, once it has become the past it is past - GONE forever. The mistake I just made on a typing word is now the past, it is not frozen so I can somehow go back and see my mistake or go back and re-do it so I do not make that mistake, a kinda altering the past. JUST CAN NOT DO IT EITHER WAY.....LOOKING AT IT OR ALTERING IT......IT'S GONE PERIOD!!!
I CANNOT go into the future to see or alter the mistakes in typing as I will make as I continue typing this to you, so the mistakes do not take place, or like watching them happen as watching some DVD future science fiction.
Jesus said NO ONE, not the angels or himself, ONLY THE FATHER KNOWS THE EXACT TIME JESUS WILL BE SENT BACK TO THIS EARTH. MAYBE THE FATHER HAS WILLED HIMSELF THAT HE HAS NOT YET DECIDED WHAT HOUR OF WHAT DAY OF WHAT MONTH OF WHAT YEAR IT WILL BE. THAT FUTURE EVENT IS NOT FROZEN IN TIME, IT HAS NOT YET HAPPENED. NO PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE CAN GO FORWARD TO VISIT THAT TIME.
THE PAST IS THE PAST, IT'S GONE, IT IS HISTORY NEVER TO BE RE-RUN LIKE A DVD AS SOME FROZEN PAST TIME, TO GO BACK AND WATCH IT ALL HAPPEN AGAIN. GOD CAN REMEMBER EVERY DETAIL OF IT, BUT IT WAS NEVER FROZEN IN TIME. THE FUTURE HE CAN PREDICT IF HE WANTS TO, BUT IT HAS NOT HAPPENED UNTIL IT HAPPENS, WHEN IT HAPPENS IT IS THEN PRESENT IN TIME, AFTER IT HAPPENS IT IS PAST TIME, NEVER TO SOME HOW RE-VISIT AND PLAY IT ALL OVER AGAIN LIKE ON A FROZEN DVD.
HISTORY IS "HIS STORY" - MAN'S STORY. I'm at present typing this words to you, what we consider "present" - when I send this to you, it goes and becomes PAST history, it's gone. The words are on a screen, they go to you, and the words printed stay, until we throw it in the trash can. BUT I CANNOT GO BACK IN TIME AND DO IT AGAIN, CHANGING THE WORDS, SAYING THINGS DIFFERENTLY.
When I type to you next Sabbath about me leaving the following day to fly over to London and then Wales, that is still in the future, I'm yet to do that. I cannot go forward in some frozen time as Greene and others teach or want to believe, and kinda looking over my shoulder and watch me doing it. That time has not yet come.
WHATEVER MIND GAMES PEOPLE LIKE GREENE AND EINSTEIN WANT TO PLAY, WANT TO THEORIZE ON, ABOUT TIME BEING FROZEN, IN PAST, PRESENT, AND FURURE, IS ALL HOGWASH GOOBIDY-GOO........ GOD DOES NOT LIVE, HE'S DECIDED NOT TO LIVE, IN SOME ETERNITY OF FROZEN TIME EVENTS.
MEN WOULD LOVE TO GO BACK AND LIVE IN SOME PAST AGE, OR GO FORWARD AND LIVE IN THE FUTURE TIME.....THEY MAKE MOVIES ABOUT IT..... ONE I HAVE IS CALLED "THE TIME MACHINE" - IT MAKES FOR GOOD SCIENCE FICTION, BUT THEY HAVE IT RIGHT WHEN THEY SAY "FICTION" FOR THAT IS WHAT IT IS. GOD DOES NOT MAKE TIME TRAVEL SCIENCE FICTION LIFE. HE LIVES FOR ETERNITY, BUT THE PAST IS GONE, THE FUTURE IS NOT YET. THAT IS THE WAY GOD HAS DECIDED TO DO IT......MEN WHO REASON OTHERWISE, DO SO OUT OF THEIR OWN BRAIN AND MIND, NOT THE MIND OF GOD.
JESUS DIED ONCE FOR MANKIND, HE REMEMBERS IT WELL, BUT IT IS NOT FROZEN IN TIME SO WE CAN ENTERTAIN OURSELVES DURING ETERNITY BY PLAYING IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN, OR PUTTING OURSELVES IN IT AS WE GO BACK AND REVISIT THE PAST. AS PAUL ONCE SAID, ABOUT IT, IN A DIFFERENT CONTEXT...."YOU CRUCIFY CHRIST AGAIN OR ANEW." THAT HORRIBLE BUT WONDERFUL [FOR OUR SALVATION] EVENT IS REMEMBERED, AND WHAT IS WRITTEN ABOUT IT, WE CAN PUT IT IN OUR MINDS-EYE, BUT THE LITERAL EVENT IS GONE, IT IS HISTORY, NEVER FROZEN, NEVER TO SEE IT HAPPEN AGAIN.
SOME GOOD THINGS HAVE BEEN DONE IN HISTORY, BUT WOW...... THE EVIL, GHASTLY, HORRIBLE, PERVERSE, DEMONIC THINGS ARE .... TOO .... WELL WORDS FAIL ME...... THANK GOODNESS TIME IS NOT FROZEN, SO THESE THINGS STAY FOR ETERNITY, TO BE VISITED..... WHAT SICK MIND WOULD WANT TO VISIT THEM ANYWAY.
MEN LIKE GREENE AND EINSTEIN AND OTHERS LIKE THEM. WERE NEVER PART OF THE SPIRIT FILLED CHILDREN OF GOD. THEY RAMBLE ALONG IN THEIR THEORIES AND POSTULATING IDEAS, IN DARKNESS TO GOD'S WORD AND THE LIGHT OF TRUTH, AND THE WAYS OF THE LORD...... MAKING THEMSELVES TO BE WISE, THEY BECOME FOOLS.
