After nearly four weeks in Queen Alexandra Hospital, I have been sent home, complete with wheelchair, Zimmer Frame and crutches! These are for a few weeks only, until I am walking normally!

I am well on the way to a total and complete recovery, with no residual problems at all! I am so excited I can hardly contain my excitement!

I am so grateful to the Lord for sparing my life, and protecting me! According to both the police and the paramedics most cyclists would have been killed outright in such an accident.

Birgit Whelan (of Revelation TV) sent Richard a special verse: Psalm 118:17 “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord”. I prayed this verse constantly, and God has certainly answered this prayer! Thank you, God! Thank you, Birgit, too!

On Friday 24th June 2011 I was cycling on a B road, and a car drove into the back of my bicycle, as you can see from the picture!

The Remains of Richard's bicycle

 

My helmet saved my life, and I will be offering my free services to the manufacturers to promote the wearing of helmets by all cyclists (many cyclists do not wear helmets, as you can see on the roads every day!)

My heart rhythm went into Ventricular Fibrillation in the ambulance. I used to be a Registrar Anaesthetists, and very few patients survive this.

The team at Casualty had great difficulty stabilising me, with my very low blood pressure, very low pulse, loss of blood, and a very low body temperature. My daughter Emma, a Senior Midwife, was informed that the prognosis was very uncertain. As a Anaesthetist, I have personally treated a large number of patients in this condition, and hard facts are that the vast majority die.

I was in Critical Care for 48 hours. Whilst in hospital, I received a total of 4 units of blood, and a lot of other intravenous fluids as well.

I sustained a fractured Right Tibia and Fibula, Fractured Lumbar and Sacral Spine, Dislocated finger, and multiple fractured ribs. Miraculously, there is no neurological problem whatever, and I have my full mental faculties (although many would comment that my mental faculties were not too brilliant before the accident!)

I have also survived a Deep Vein Thrombosis in my right calf, which is always potentially fatal, since a clot often travels to the heart and kills the patient- this is one of the commonest causes of death in hospital. I am now on full therapeutic Heparin injections for 12 weeks.

I also survived consolidation and infection of my right lung, with temperatures of 39C and uncontrollable shivering, which required intravenous antibiotics for 10 days.

Basically I have been spared death on a number of occasions, and am so grateful to the Lord to be alive!

I would very much like to thank the management, presenters, staff and viewers of Revelation TV “Church Without Walls”, as well as whole churches in many countries, for the hundreds of cards, letters, and e-mails from all over the world.

I have been frankly amazed at the number of cards, letters, and e-mails received, and cannot express adequately how grateful I am for all the well wishes, and the prayers of so many lovely people over a very difficult time for our very close family.

Roger and Sue French of Living Word Church, Portsmouth, could not have been more kind and helpful, as well as all of the members of his wonderful church. In addition, the doctors and nurses at Queen Alexandra Hospital were all outstanding.

In summary, I have a lot more friends than I thought I had! I would like to extend my warmest wishes to everyone, family, friends, and Christians from many countries.

Richard & Val Kent

In addition I have received identical visions over many nights whilst in hospital about how we all enter Eternity when we die. I am still trying to understand this vision, and am getting help from experts in Mathematics and Physics in Derek Walker’s church! I hope to make a short TV programme about it when I have finally understood it!

Lesley Conder, Gordon Pettie, and Doug Harris have very kindly invited me to attend the next “Building The Foundation” on Revelation TV on 9th August 2011. I am very much looking forward to attending! Someone from my church will gladly bring me.

I am whizzing all over the place in my wheelchair, and becoming a general menace to everyone! Val says I am like a puppy, and should behave myself, and maybe wear a crash helmet, unless I slow down a bit!

With special love and thanks to everyone,

Richard

A. The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory states that the Universe, galaxies, stars, planets arose, by chance, from a huge explosion between 5 and 20 billion years ago. We would like to make the following comments:

big bang theory

1. All observed explosions are destructive and not constructive.

2. Explosions cause spontaneous degeneration and not spontaneous generation.

3. All explosions decrease order and structure.

An illustrative example is that, if you blow up an aircraft factory, you do not end up with a Jumbo Jet by chance.

B. The Spontaneous Generation Theory
The Spontaneous Generation Theory states that all life on planet Earth descended from a common single-cell, arising by chance, in the “primordial ooze”, 3.5 billion years ago. This contradicts the Law of Biogenesis, which states that life comes from pre-existing life.

spontaneous generation theory

C. Time and Space had a finite beginning
Albert Einstein published his Special Theory of Relativity in 1905, and his General Theory of Relativity in 1915.

In 1968 and 1970 three British astrophysicists, Steven Hawking, George Ellis and Roger Penrose published papers in which they extended Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity to include measurements of time and space.

They discovered that time and space had a finite beginning that corresponded to the origin of matter and energy.

Hawking, Ellis and Penrose discovered that before this finite beginning, time and space did not exist!

D. The Spontaneous Generation theory contradicts the First Law of Thermodynamics

The First Law Of Thermodynamics

The First Law of Thermodynamics is often thought of as the Law of Conservation of Mass and Energy. 

Quotations from the Concise Oxford Dictionary:

Definition of Mass: “A coherent body of matter with no definite shape”.
Definition of Matter: “A physical substance or material in general, as distinct from mind and spirit (in physics), which occupies space and possesses mass, especially as distinct from energy”.
Definition of Energy: “The property of matter and radiation which is manifest as a capacity to perform work”.

The First Law of Thermodynamics states that the sum of the following energies in a closed system remains constant:

1. Kinetic Energy

2. Potential Energy

3. Thermal Energy

Matter, or its energy equivalent, cannot be either created or destroyed under natural circumstances. To explain the origin of matter in the atheistic Spontaneous Generation model, it is assumed that matter arose from nothing.

This is in direct contravention of the First Law of Thermodynamics which demands that Matter Cannot Create Itself. Logically there must therefore have been an “Outside Agency”, Who the Bible describes as God, Who created everything.

E. Evolution contradicts the Second law of Thermodynamics

In the Theory of Evolution it is proposed that “simple life” evolved into more complex life forms by Spontaneous Generation. Both Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and the Spontaneous Generation model both directly contravene the Law of Biogenesis.

The Second Law Of Thermodynamics

The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that the disorder in a system increases, rather than decreases. The Second Law of Thermodynamics gives a precise definition of a property called Entropy.

Entropy: Entropy can be thought of as a measure of the disorder in a system. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that the Entropy, or disorder, of an isolated system can never decrease. In other words, in our Universe, a state of order progresses to a state of disorder.
For example:

– The Sun and the stars are burning up.

– The Sun is cooling down.

– The Universe is “winding down”.

– Ultimately there will be “heat death” of the Universe.

In other words, everything in our Universe tends to disorder. This principle of Entropy is exactly what the Bible teaches in the following Scriptures:

Hebrews 1:10-12, “Lord, in the beginning you made the Earth, and the Heavens are the work of your hands. They will disappear into nothingness, but you will remain forever. They will become worn out like old clothes, and some day you will fold them up and replace them. But you yourself will never change, and your years will never end”, TLB.

Psalm 102:25-27, “In ages past you laid the foundations of the Earth and made the Heavens with your hands! They shall perish, but you go on forever. They will grow old like worn-out clothing, and you will change them like a man putting on a new shirt and throwing away the old one! But you yourself never grow old. You are forever, and your years never end”, TLB.

In the world that we observe, nothing gets more ordered in design and structure, without an input from an external higher energy source.

The Coliseum in Rome 

The ColosseumThe Coliseum is not getting in a more ordered state by itself, but is in fact becoming less ordered, and will eventually collapse completely.

Evolutionists claim that adding energy to a system will increase the order in that system 

 

This claim is not borne out in observations.

– America added a lot of energy, in the form of nuclear bombs, to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. But America certainly did not increase order in either city. 

– The Sun’s energy is destructive to everything on Earth except one molecule called Chlorophyll, 

– The Sun will eventually burn the roof of our houses and turn the bricks to powder. 

Implications of Second Law of Thermodynamics

The Second Law of Thermodynamics implies that the Universe could not order and provide energy for itself.

The order and energy observed in the Universe implies an “Outside Agency”, Who the Bible describes as God.

Under the crust of the Earth, oil is found deposited in oil wells. This oil is under considerable pressure. The pressure in oil wells is measured in pounds per square inch or psi.

The pressure of oil in oil wells is 20,000 pounds per square inch (psi). This explains why, when oil prospectors drill down into the Earth‘s crust for the oil, the oil is forcibly ejected from the oil well, because of the tremendous pressure.

pressure of oil in wells

Oil formed from organisms that once lived in the sea

– According to Holt General Science, 1988, p.294, “Oil and gas are made from “organisms that once lived in the sea. …changed by heat and pressure”… into oil”. .

– According to The Journal of Petroleum Geology Leigh Price 1983 p.32 oil can form in 1000-10,000 years!

– This subject is also discussed in “How Fast can Oil Form?” by Andrew Snelling 1990, Creation Ex Nihilo, 12(2):30.

Oil can be created artificially

– According to Creation Ex Nihilo, Vol 12 No. 2, p. 30, in “How fast can oil form?”, scientist can now convert vegetable matter, using heat and pressure, into oil in a couple of minutes inside a laboratory.

– According to Hadden R. Appell, US Dept. of Interior, Bureau of Mines, in “Converting Organic Wastes to Oil,” oil can be manufactured in 20 minutes.

– According to Mike Riddle in “Creation/Evolution: Does it Matter what we Believe?” By, ICR, p. 28, “In 1996 a $22.4 million proposal was approved in Western Australia that will build a plant to create oil from sewage sludge in 30 minutes”.

Geologists say the crust of the Earth could not have contained an oil pressure of 20,000 psi for more than 10,000 years

According to Creation Ex Nihilo Vol 12 No. 2, p.30 in “How fast can oil form?” geologists say that there is a limit to how long the rocks of the Earth’s crust could contain a pressure of 20,000 psi. According to these geologists the rocks could not have contained that kind of oil pressure for more than 10,000 years, without breaking up.

– If the Earth is billions of years old, why is oil present in oil wells, if it cannot be contained for more than 10,000 years?

– How did the oil get there?

– How was the oil created?

According to the Bible.

– God created the Heavens and the Earth 6,000 years ago approximately.

– 4,400 years ago there was a world wide Flood.

– As the crust of the Earth was broken up, and water ran off the land, the geography was dramatically altered.

At this point we have to do some reasoning, based on observations and known facts:

– About 4,400 years ago, according to the Bible, there was a Flood.

– In that Flood organic material in the form of fish, animals and people drowned.

– This organic material was greatly compressed by millions of tons of rocks, sand, gravel and mud, which compressed the dead carcasses, producing oil.

– Many Creationists believe that coal was similarly formed by the compression of vegetable matter at the time of Noah’s flood.

The existence of oil in oil wells proves a young universe

Since, according to geologists, oil cannot be contained within the crust of the Earth for more than 10,000 years, the existence of oil in oil wells indicates that the Universe cannot be billions of years old, but less than 10,000 years old.

The Law of Conversation of Angular Momentum causes very serious problems for the Big Bang Theory.

One way to understand the Law of Conversation of Angular Momentum is to illustrate this law of Physics with a practical example.

A roundabout in a children’s play area

Let us imagine that we have some children playing on a roundabout in a children’s play area.law of conservation of angular momentum
Phase 1: We ask three out of the children to sit on the roundabout and hold tight, and the remaining two children to spin the roundabout.

Phase 2: The roundabout is now travelling at 30 mph, and the children pushing the roundabout are beginning to perspire.

Phase 3: When the roundabout is spinning quite fast at 60 mph, the children on the roundabout are beginning to become frightened. They cry out, “Stop! Stop! Please slow down!”

Phase 4: When the roundabout begins to spin much faster at 100mph, such is the gravitational forces on the children sitting on the roundabout that they all fly off the roundabout.

Phase 5: Because of the Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum the children will all fly off the roundabout moving in the same direction as the roundabout. If the roundabout was rotating clockwise, the children will also be rotating clockwise. 

 The Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum can now be applied to the Big Bang Theory

the big bang theory– In the case of the Big Bang Theory the “singularity” was supposed to have spun very fast, and then exploded in a frictionless environment, which the Universe must have been if all the matter was concentrated at one point.

– According to the Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum, all the planets should spin in the same direction.

– We know from observation of the planets in our Solar System that the planets Venus, Uranus and possibly Pluto spin in the opposite direction to the other six planets.

– In addition to that, there are 63 known moons of the planets. Of these moons, six spin in the opposite direction to the remaining 57.

– In our Solar System, three of the planets, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, have moons orbiting in both directions.

– The above facts are quoted from “Astronomical Almanac for the year 1989″ (Wash. DC U.S. Government Printing Office, 1989) p. E88.

– From the Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum we can see that if our Solar System evolved spontaneously by a Big Bang, all the moons should orbit their planets in the same direction.

– The only exception to this would be if they encountered a large mass, such as another planet.

– However, this event should certainly have left a crater, which it would have been observed by astronomers.

– Observations of our Solar System do NOT support the big Bang Theory.

Difference of angular momentum of the Sun and the planets 

The Sun actually spins very much more slowly than the planets. This certainly does not support the Big Bang Theory, as explained in the following quotation:

“This (Angular Momentum) would have caused the Sun to spin very rapidly. Actually, our Sun spins very slowly, while the planets move very rapidly around the Sun. In fact, although the Sun has over 99% of the mass of the solar system, it has only 2% of the angular momentum. This pattern is directly opposite to the pattern predicted for the nebular hypothesis.” Quoted from Dr. H. Reeves “The Origin of the Solar System“, in “The Origin of the Solar System”, Dermott, S.F. Ed. John Wiley & Sons, New York p. 9, 1978.

Evolutionist cannot explain the angular momentum of the Solar System

“The ultimate origin of the solar system’s angular momentum remains obscure.” Quoted from solar system Evolutionist scientist, Dr. Stuart Ross Taylor, “Solar System Evolution, A New Perspective,” Cambridge University Press, p. 53, 1992, Dr. Stuart Ross Taylor.

Conservation of Angular Momentum

The Milky Way is “lumpy” 
If the Big Bang Theory were true, the planets would all spin in the same direction, and the matter would be evenly distributed through the Solar System. Instead it is “lumpy”. Throughout the Milky Way there are clusters of stars, then great areas of empty space. This subject is discussed in detail in “Creation Ex Nihilo Dec. 99, p. 8″.
