Collect. Exhibit. Educate.
Hello. My name is Frank DeFreitas ... and my wife is Debi.
DID YOU KNOW?...
Throughout history, many of the world's top artists, scientists and technicians have proclaimed Jesus Christ through their God-given talents. Our Wonders of the Bible collection celebrates these achievements through world-renown examples of visual arts, science and communication technologies: past, present ... and future.
Traveling Outreach ProgramWe offer a visiting program that includes a PowerPoint presentation with a lecture and discussion. Many of our exhibit items are either very rare or one of a kind, and should be seen by every man, woman and child this side of heaven!
For over 35 years, my area of authority has been the Nobel prize winning fields of lasers and holography. Lasers and holograms are perfect for STEM student learning. Plus, you might as well have the co-author of the world's best selling laser and holography book as your presenter.
Wonders of the Bible includes the following topical areas:
Micro / Nano Technology:
* Biblical Scripture
* Biblical Art
Special Micro / Nano:
* Thomas Edison's Lord's Prayer
* Micro Handwritten Exemplars
Laser Based Technology:
* Laser Communications
Special Laser Based Technology:
* Ancient Biblical Artifacts
* The Great Chalice of Antioch
* Genesis 1:1 on a Beam of Laser Light
Visual Arts and Technology:
* Stereoscopic Photography
* Etchings, Engravings
Special Visual Arts:
* Rembrandt's Life of Christ Etchings
* 19th / 20th Century Christian 3-D Stereo Photography
* The Shroud of Turin (Rare Artifacts)
* Noah's Ark and the Flood
Special Topical Technology:
* 3-D Shroud Laser Research (Face in the Shroud)
* Petrified / Tooled / Pitched Wood From Mt. Ararat
My latest presentation / program for 2019 and beyond ... developed by someone (me) who spent every day of his entire adult life working with lasers. What can the NASA laser moon bounce (ranging) experiments tell us about the account of Biblical creation as recorded in Genesis? Answer: a LOT! I supplement this presentation with an actual live demonstration of a laser and lunar retroreflector, as placed on the moon via the NASA Apollo missions. Participants can also "Touch the Moon" via a lunar meteorite moon rock (NWA-5000). Click on link above for more information.
Unlike other 3D stereographic technologies that have preceded it, holography provides true 3-dimensional SPATIAL imaging. In other words, the recorded object has true three dimensions in space, not just a visual representation of 3D from 2D sources. See and learn about several examples of this technology being applied to the famous Shroud of Turin. UPDATE FOR 2019: Utilizing a newly obtained transmission and reflection densitometer system, I can now demonstrate LIVE and in REAL TIME the process of HOW the 3-dimensional information was extracted from the Shroud of Turin.
Microscopic scripture was all the rage in the 1800's, and now it is being rediscovered once again in the 21st century through Wonders of the Bible. Imagine Biblical scripture and art so small it cannot be seen by the human eye. Tiny hand writing that must be read through a microscope! Famous museum Biblical paintings the size of a pin hole! Scientists and technicians proclaim Jesus Christ through micro photography, laser holography, and nano technology. Absolutely the finest collection of its kind in the world today.
Holography is a Nobel prize-winning field of physics that records 3-dimensional images using laser optical technology. This section showcases our work, including ancient Biblical archaeological artifacts, and other Christian based projects.
Lasers record 3D holograms of various artifacts discovered on Mt. Ararat during a famous expedition to find the real Noah's Ark. Includes tooled petrified wood, pitched with resin, found at the summit -- and the story behind it.
Pure ephemera, not adulterated by modern day expanded definition(s), deals with the throw-away printed items that pass through our everyday lives on a daily basis. Here are a few examples of the Wonders of the Bible Christian ephemera collection.
An historically important archive of 19th century, Christian-based stereo photography. Many of these incredible records of America's Christian heritage are one of a kind, taken by independent photographers. One of the finest collections of its kind in the world today. Many images are also in the collection of the Smithsonian, Eastman Kodak House, Metropolitan Museum, and Library of Congress.
Get to know the person behind Wonders of the Bible: Me (Frank DeFreitas). Here is a bio on my life's work with lasers and holography, my late-in-life salvation (2010), and the testimony of my faith. My loving (and patient) wife of 42 years led me to Christ, and I am eternally (literally) grateful.
* Rare Bible Leaves (coming soon)
* Genesis / Creation / Space (coming soon)
* Etchings, Engravings and Prints (coming soon)
We would love to visit your church, school or home school group.
No group is too large or too small. We have been at both large museums and small gatherings in homes. We serve all of eastern PA (Philly, Lehigh Valley, Lancaster, Reading, Harrisburg, Wilkes-Barre and Scranton), New Jersey (north and south), New York City (and all surrounding boroughs and counties), Delaware, Maryland and DC. Some of our recent events include: The Institute for Scientific and Biblical Research, Lancaster, Pennsylvania; The New York Hall of Science, New York City, New York; The Creation Evidence Museum, Glen Rose, Texas; The Smithsonian, Washington, D.C.; Creation Celebration Conference 2017 and 2018, Newark, Delaware; Scientific and Biblical Creationist Fellowship, Newark, Delaware; Ephrata Mennonite School, Ephrata, Pennsylvania; New York Microscopical Society, Clinton, New Jersey ... and more. We would love to visit with you! We stand firmly on Biblical creationism, inerrancy, perspicuity and authority. θεόπνευστος (theopneustos): "God-breathed."
We request (but do not require) a love offering honorarium of any amount for the presentation. Call us at: (484) 387-5320 or email: email@example.com
