IN HISTORY




UPCOMING EVENTS

ABOUT THE PATTERNS

The Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary I use describes a pattern in part as being a form or model proposed for imitation and something designed or used as a model for making things. It also explains it as a reliable sample of traits, acts, tendencies, or other observable characteristics of a person, group, or institution. For me, these descriptions could also by definition apply to an idea of proving the existence of God. What I’m saying here is observable through the use of historical documents and in most cases involves a person, event, invention, or a discovery. But the more shocking is that these observable characteristics are also present in my day to day life.

When one can find things within nature or other areas which seem to follow the same traits or acts and are observable it would indicate that there is a designer behind it. In law enforcement officials look for similarities between crimes scenes to see if the same person or people are responsible. Serial killers are a good example, they tend to repeat similar tendencies in different acts. Doctors look for similarities within diseases to find where or what the cause is. Other professions do similar things. For me, I just happened to look throughout the history of the world to find traits which might indicate a model or models used over and over again to prove the existence of God. I found some that indicates that there is a designer behind everything. But I was lead to find them and that means divine intervention played a part.

The first pattern I was led to during my journey had to do with the numbers I display on my website, the 17, 47, and 55. They are involved over and over again within the people who made a difference in our lives, inventions themselves, discoveries, and other aspects. The first jumbo jet was the 747. The first commercially available helicopter was the Bell 47. The first stealth bomber was the F-117. The list goes on and on endlessly. But the numbers are not always as obvious, they are hidden in other features of the discovery or invention. The numbers may be found in the date of the invention or discovery. They might also be found in the birth, death or at the age of the discoverer or inventor.

The first pattern model, is one in which I distinguish with the letter 'A', representing 'at something'; at age, at or on date, at number, at time of day, and at year. (A/A), (A/D), (A/N), (A/T), (A/Y). For this pattern to be valid it can only include the use of the numbers 17, 47, & 55, no others are used. Examples of this models use includes the previously stated items, The Boeing 747 jumbo jet, the Bell 47 helicopter, the F-117 stealth bomber, these items are the first of each of their kind, the jumbo jet, commercially available helicopter, the use of the stealth technology on an aircraft, the Lockheed F-117. These would be classed “at number, (A/N)”. Another type of at number case would be the Apollo program there were 17 flights, which also included Apollo 13, which landed safely on April 17th, 1970, and the 17th which was man’s last journey to the moon. Also in this model, but a different type would be the first heavier-than-air powered flight, the Wright brothers, which happened on December 17th, 1903. As with the safely landing Apollo 13 flight this would be classed as an “at date”, (A/D) type application. An example of an at age situation would be one where the person involved was 17, 47, or 55 at the time of situation. In only extreme cases do I use the number 17. These type situations go on and on in aircraft. Please refer to the Flight Timeline for more in depth detail.

The second model is identified with the letter B which means born or died on. When the day of the month is used the numbers represented are expanded to run from the 16th of the month to the 20th of the month. Even though I was led to find the 17 which in this case was the 17th of the month my journey and subsequent research actually led me to the 19 as well. My journey also told me that because there were often times no clocks available during births or deaths to state correctly when an individual was born or died it could have been reported on the 16th when it was the 17th, and could have been the 18th or when it was actually the 17th or 19th, and the 19th could have been reported as the 20th. My wife JoAnn was such a case. Her mother had told her that she was most likely born on the 17th but because no one really knew the time of day it was reported as the 16th the day she had gone to the hospital. (B/D), (B/Y). In Human Flight the Wright brothers both fit this model. Orville was born on the 19th of August and Wilbur was born on the 16th of April. But there are many others who also fit this model while used in Human Flight. Although Lawrence Bell, the founder of Bell Aircraft, which built the Bell 47, had died on the 20th of October, the Bell 47 itself, shows a much better picture, many of those involved fit this model even better. Pioneer test pilot Joe Mashman was born on April 17th, and pioneer test pilot Floyd Carlson was born in 1917. Bartram Kelly who was instrumental in its success and became president of the American Helicopter Society died on December 17th. There were other successes for the helicopter related to the 17th of a given month.

The Third type model had to do with connections and is identified with the letter C. As with the B type it always involves an individual, a partner in a venture, a trainer, or a relative or related to. (C/P), (C/T), (C/R). There are relatively few that fit this model.

The forth type model is that of doubles, which always involves people and is identified with the letter D. They are those individuals that were born and died on the same day of the month or month of the year. The drift factor explained above is also employed here when the day of the month is involved. (D/D), (D/M)

The fifth and final type has to do with preachers, them and their children. I use the letter E to represent extended, as in family. (E/P)

Now that I’ve explained the patterns if we look back at the previously discussed Intelligent Design trial we find something interesting in those involved.

Richard Dawkins, who also opposes the ideas of Intelligent Design, purpose, is to rid the world of religion, which he feels, is a destructive force. He attempts to do this by denying the existence of God. He is very effective in his arguments. In 2006, just after his book 'The God Delusion' came out I bought a copy. I found he has a problem which I feel will one day prove to be very embarrassing. In his book, chapter 4 titled 'Why There Almost Certainly is no God', he introduces the chapter with 'the Ultimate Boeing 747'. I call it the Ultimate blunder. William Boeing the founder of 'The Boeing Company' which produces the 747 renamed it the Boeing Company from the Pacific Aero Products Company in 1917. As for the 747, it was the first Jumbo Jet. Richard Dawkins used two of the three numbers I use to prove that God does in fact exist and works in the world. In 1996, at age 55, Richard Dawkins became a vice-president of the British Humanist Association and also 1996 received the American Humanist Association's Humanist of the Year Award.

The purpose of the National Center for Science Education is to keep religious ideas and thoughts out of the classroom, which in turn would allow for more freedom for discovery and applying its use. Continuing animal Cloning and Stem Cell research would be two areas NCSE is most concerned about. In the 'Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District trial‎, they joined the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) who had filed the suit on December 14, 2004 on behalf of eleven parents including Tammy Kitzmiller from the Dover school district, The group 'Americans United for Separation of Church and State' (AU) also played a part in the lawsuit against the school district. The ACLU traces its origins back to 1917 and the AU back to 1947. Judge Jones, he was born on June 13th, 1955. Some of those that stood up for the Dover area school district included the Thomas More law Center out of Michigan and Michael Behe. He was the main witness. He was also the first person at the trial to defend the idea that God is the creator. He took the stand on October 17th, 2005. William Dembski chose not to attend due to an inability to bring his own counsel.

But in all of this there is also something else that's worth mentioning. When I first felt this section was near completion I decided to leave off the Thomas More Law Center. To me there vested interest in the trial was that of simply a job and nothing more. They had no words in defense of God to offer. It was just a day or two after I had left them off when I, out of the blue, received an email from them. I had had contact with them two or three years ago, but hadn't had any correspondence with them since. I'm not even sure how they still had my email address, but they obviously did. Beyond their email coming at a time that seemed oddly coincedental. The email itself contained dated information that also seemed a bit coincidental. In a trial that they had been involved with, the charges had been dropped on March 17th. But even before that it was actions taken on October 17th, 2008 that led up to the charges being dropped.

But then something more happened relaed to the Thomas More law Center. The day after I added them in, which was on April 29th, I received a second email from them. This time they were announcing a lawsuit they filed against Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano and Attorney General Eric Holder. They were seeking funds to help them in thier battle. But in this email they also said something very interesting;

"Make no Mistake: This is a 'David verses Goliath fight".

Divine Intervention in my life? It's a regular occurrence. And it always seems to fall right back to those numbers I display on my website, the 17, 47 & 55. There's in the hundreds of cases this happening in my life. To learn more refer to the About my Story section under the learn button. But before you do that, read on and ask yourself these simple questions that follow;

What would God do in the event that a Judge deemed that He was not the Creator?

My journey which I write about started long before this Intelligent Design trial ever took place, I remember it very well, It began just after my wife and I returned home from a short road trip which happened to put us in Corpus Christi, Texas on Easter Sunday in the year 2000.

Divine Intervention in my life? That brings me to another story. November 20th, 2009, I learned that an Intelligent Design related book had now made it onto a best seller list. The Discovery Institute had reported it on there website on November 17th, ‘Intelligent design Book Delivers Blow to Darwin; Cracks Amazon.com Bestseller List in Science’. So now what I wrote earlier in the 'Getting Started' section about that no books concerning Intelligent Design had been on a best seller list is now obsolete, but that’s OK. I got another occurrence of the number 17 to write about proving even more that I know what I’m talking about.

So who would God send into a world which has so many things wrong within it? Someone you need or someone you want?

The answers should be obvious in such troubling times. You’ve heard the story about David before, it’s in the Bible. 1 Samuel 17 is the book and chapter it is found. But that also takes us back to that number 17, but later as you read more you will learn an even greater use of the number 17 and it too lies within my life.
