Conclusion

Because you cannot prove everything, you must “believe” in something.  At some point, you will be forced to choose sides.  Who are you going to trust?

I put my trust in Jesus Christ and hope you do, too.

References and Rough Transcript

(If you watched the video, this part is mostly redundant.)

According to the NASA website, this image is an “artist’s conception”.

NASA shows an artist’s work. What is the artist’s name?

It’s artwork. Conceived in the imagination. Not real.

It could just as easily be another artist’s artwork.

Was any scientific method used in creating this image?

Where are the original telescope images?

How could we use science to determine what this planet looks like? Where is the planet, anyway? Have the coordinates been disclosed? How could anyone else with a telescope independently confirm that this planet exists?

NASA says Kepler-22B is “600 light years away”.

That’s the equivalent of 3.5 quadrillion miles.

or 3,500,000,000,000,000 miles

(5.7×10^15 kilometers)

That might be far enough away that no one else can confirm that this planet exists.

NASA says Kepler-22b is in the “habitable zone”. What’s that? There is only one planet that we know of in the entire universe that has life. So, how do we define a habitable zone based on one finding? Where is the science?

Motive

What is the Kepler mission? To find “life-supporting planets”

http://kepler.nasa.gov/education/resources/KeplerInBrief/

Important question: Why is NASA looking for life-supporting planets 3.5 quadrillion miles away? When NASA claims that they find alien life that far away, it is unlikely that anyone else would be able to scientifically duplicate their findings. NASA could have a monopoly on find “life” quadrillions of miles away. If NASA is a monopoly, then when they claim they found alien life, you must choose what you want to “believe”, as you will not be able to scientifically confirm it as fact.

Origin of the name “Kepler”

NASA chose to name this mystery planet Kepler-22b.

Johannes (Yo-han-as) Kepler

In the early 1600s, Kepler was the first to correctly explain planetary motion.[10]

Kepler helped prove that the Sun is the center of our solar system, with the planets orbiting the sun in ellipses, not circles.

Kepler believed in God, believing the universe itself was an image of God. “He was a devout Christian, and a serious student of the Holy Scriptures.”[7]

Kepler said he believed ‘only and alone in the service of Jesus Christ. In Him is all refuge, all solace.’

Kepler, a lover of peace, believed in Jesus Christ, and was persecuted by the Catholics for his Christian faith.

Kepler said:

“I have stolen the golden vases of the Egyptians, to build up a tabernacle for my God, far away from the confines of Egypt.”

Kepler thought he had revealed God’s geometrical plan for the universe.

Around the time that the King James Version of the Holy Bible was being translated, the Catholics rose up against the Christians in Gratz, Austria and threatened to expel them from the city.

Kepler, a Protestant Christian, saw the danger and fled to Hungary.

Here he continued nearly a year, during which he composed and
transmitted to his friend Zehentmaier, at Tubingen, several small
treatises, “On the Magnet,” “On the cause of the Obliquity of the
Ecliptic,” and “On the Divine Wisdom, as shewn in the Creation”–all of
which seem to have been lost. In 1599, Kepler was recalled to Gratz by
the States of Styria, and resumed his professorship; but the city was
still divided into two factions, and Kepler, who was a lover of peace,
found his situation very uncomfortable.”[4]

Kepler was highly intelligent.  I am inclined to believe that he knows more than the average person today.

  • First to investigate the formation of pictures with a pin hole camera.
  • First to explain the process of vision by refraction within the eye.
  • First to formulate eyeglass designing for nearsightedness and farsightedness.
  • First to explain the use of both eyes for depth perception.
  • First to describe: real, virtual, upright and inverted images and magnification.
  • First to explain the principles of how a telescope works.
  • First to discover and describe the properties of total internal reflection.
  • Kepler was the first to use planetary cycles to calculate the birth year of Jesus Christ.
