December 2019 Lecture:
A Biblical Christmas Podcast

A Biblical Christmas Podcast

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us". Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS...

November 2019 Lecture:
Preserving God's Word in Space

Preserving the Word of God in Space

Laser and holographic technologies will preserve God's Word as we advance to orbital colonies in space. With this broadcast, I would like to answer a few of the most common questions about the future of the Bible, and laser communications in general. These are the most-often asked questions from visitors of all ages at my Wonders of the Bible exhibits and presentations... [READ MORE...]

October 2019 Lecture:
Shroud of Turin Laser Holography

Shroud of Turin Laser Holography

The Shroud of Turin has always been a somewhat limited resource for scientists in that access for physical examination is heavily restricted. The Nobel prize-winning field of holography gives us the ability to continue true, spatial 3D visual examination of the Holy Shroud of Turin -- long after it has been returned to its safekeeping. ...

September 2019 Lecture:
World's Smallest Handwriting

Smallest Handwriting in the World

How small can you write? The most beautiful hand writing examples of the lord's prayer are smaller than the eye can see. It is extraordinary that one of the greatest minds of the 19th and 20th century would choose the opening line of the Lord's Prayer for a micro handwriting sample: Thomas Edison ... [READ MORE...]

August 2019 Lecture:
Light and the Word of God

Light and the Word of God

Energy and power are contained in the light spoken into existence by Jesus Christ on Day One of Creation. He is the awesome and powerful Creator of the universe. Just as the original creation received the radiant glory and power of the Creator expressed as light, the future eternal ages will enjoy the resplendent radiance of God Himself ... [READ MORE...]

July 2019 Lecture:
Noahs Ark at the Olympia Music Hall 1896

Noahs Ark at the Olympia Music Hall 1896

You are not likely to find anything about Noah's Ark on New York City's famous Broadway today … but at one time, it was the toast of the town. It was so popular and well-received, that the highly respected science publication, Scientific American, devoted nearly an entire page to this Biblically-themed entertainment attraction -- complete with stunning wood cut illustrations. It didn't matter that the theme was taken from the Christian Holy Bible ... [READ MORE...]

June 2019 Lecture:
1800s Stereographs Reveal Early U.S. Christian Life in 3-D

1800s Stereographs Reveal Early U.S. Christian Life in 3-D

19th Century stereo photographers captured everyday Christian life throughout the U.S. and overseas. Stereo view cards contained two photographs, side-by-side. One photo for the left eye, and one photo for the right eye. Naturally, most of the photos were taken with cameras that had not one, but *two* lenses. These lenses were separated approximately equal to the distance between our eyes. With this month's presentation, I would like to cover...

May 2019 Lecture:
Micro Lord's Prayer Put Man on the Moon

Micro Lord's Prayer Put Man on the Moon

It took a lot of science and technology to put an astronaut on the surface of the moon, but as you'll see, the real credit for getting there should be given to a 19th century microscopic photograph of the Lord's Prayer. It is directly responsible for the modern computer circuits that put man on the moon in 1969...

April 2019 Lecture:
80 Years of Christian View-Master

Christian View Master

A celebration of the 3D stereo viewer that brought us Bible Stories, Birth of Jesus, Noah's Ark, and more. Since 1939 thousands of individual titles and more than 1.5 billion View-Master reels have been issued, along with hundreds of millions of viewers, in 25 models... [READ MORE...]

March 2019 Lecture:
Christian Laser Holograms

3D Laser Christian Holograms of the Future

No other media in the world can match the three dimensional, high fidelity images of REAL 3D laser-based holography. Holograms provide a way to visually "duplicate" -- in light -- whatever has been recorded … as if the object were right in front of you again. To see a REAL 3D laser hologram is an experience that one does not soon forget. This Nobel Prize-winning field is bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the 21st century and beyond..

February 2019 Lecture:
Genesis-Darwin Microfilm of 1875

Genesis after Darwin graphic

It is a piece of nineteenth century history, science and technology that could be right out of a spy novel. This 19th century microfilm microphotograph shows the rewriting of the first chapter of Biblical Genesis ... rewritten according to Darwinian evolution. Today, in the 21st century, it is not unusual to find an article or book written around that theme. It is, however, much more difficult to find the aforementioned when it is dated to the 19th century. [READ MORE...]

January 2019 Article:
1 Thessalonians 5:17 and Space Flight

Pray without ceasing graphic

One is not likely to find many references to space flight trajectories when reading commentary on 1 Thessalonians 5:17: the famous "Pray without ceasing" verse given by Paul. What could the connection possibly be? The shared connection has to do with getting from point A to point B: both in outer space, and in life. In the instance of a spacecraft, it is traveling from the earth to our moon or another planet. With a person, we are (hopefully) on a journey from this earthly life to our eternal home in heaven.
