A resident on the Earth is living within a time stream that is inherently divided by progressions of day and night, by periods of the Moon, and by revolutions of the solar year. As such, an inhabitant of this planet should experience a day of 24 hours (or also 86400 seconds), an average lunar month of 29.53059 days, and a solar year of 365.24219 days.
Modern science teaches that the spin and orbital returns can be predicted solely on the basis of celestial mechanics. These findings then tend to mean that the present Solar System operates only within the domain of natural laws. Consequently, the orbits return without any need for Divine maintenance. (In essence, no supernatural intervention is required in the function of the current Solar System).
Irregardless of whether the Solar System might now be functioning like an unattended clock, the current study attempts to identify ANY characteristic that points to mindful purpose from inside the configuration of the Earth-Moon system . The following list of no cost publications is consequently presented in substantiation of an hypothesis that the present lunisolar system is reflective of intelligent time design:
Note that because well designed time structures are manifested from out of the modern spin and orbital returns then the possibility of a Supreme origin for the Earth and Moon seems more certain.
The role of the Moon ultimately rises to become huge in proving the existence of interrelated time design. One of the more notable proofs of design in the Sun-Moon system concerns a tight interface between 7 sets of lunar quarters and 7 sets of years. This cross-reference is amazing in the inherent definition of a jubilee calendar. For no cost information about an incredibly accurate lunisolar calendar, please select from among the following online publications:
Time design is additionally manifested from certain Bible passages that provide detail of various cycles. Among the more significant of these concerns the definition of fixed day-counts. For no cost information about the significance of time cycles outlined in the Bible (and related) texts, please select from among the following list of online literature:
A study of time design is yet additionally significant for coming to better understanding time cycles once tracked in regions of the ancient Middle East. Of special significance here is that early priest-astronomers appear to have once tracked and celebrated a calendar predicated upon time stations. For more information about a day or a time station of the Sun (1 day in a cycle of 30 days) and a day or a time station of the Moon (1 day in a cycle of 7 weeks), please select from among the following list of online publications:
Lastly, a study of time design seems significant for accurately interpreting certain of the Bible's prophecies. To be more specific, the annointing of the Messiah and the destruction of the Temple were events that were predicted (centuries prior). The Bible does furthermore predict the coming of a doomsday event. For more information about events detailed in Bible prophecy, refer to the following list of no cost publications:
Note that the times of the several ancient eclipses, equinoxes, and Moon phases that are referenced in the literature linked from above can conveniently be converted to/from corresponding Julian day numbers using the following online calendar tool. The times of the cited events can optionally be viewed in a graphical format when inside of the Sky View Cafe.
The online publications represent the results of the research of James Dwyer and Sherry Goodwin. (Jim was formerly a Computer Systems Programmer with the U.S. Geological Survey). We do hope that our current study of the Earth-Moon system will be of benefit in furthering a reader's study of a created solar system.
