Bibletime, is a purposeful oxymoron, combining the scientific proof that time is an illusion, with the belief that the bible is the word of truth from God. In describing his theory of relativity, Albert Einstein wrote: “Since there exists in this four-dimensional structure [space/time] no longer any sections which represent “now” objectively, the concepts of happening and becoming are indeed not completely suspended, but yet complicated. It appears, therefore, more natural to think of physical reality as a four-dimensional existence instead of, as hitherto, the evolution of a three-dimensional existence.” In other words, as he later explained, “the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one”. Albert Einstein is perhaps the missing link between science and religion. He believed in God but, through scientific research and mathematics he discovered that the world in which we live is not what it seems. Without intending to do so, he discovered an error in one of the major cornerstones of science. He discovered the truth about time and the error of evolutionary theory—but it was too late. The scientific community was already committed, and nature would have to take its course. Ironically, since Einstein’s discovery, history has continued to be taught as evolving, while many brilliant minds could not. The information was suppressed. All of this shows the scientific community as suffering from a type of schizophrenia. While claiming that the universe is millions of years old on the one hand, it also claims it to be timeless on the other. The Judeo Christian community suffers from the same type of schizophrenia, claiming to have a current relationship and a future with a timeless (eternal) God, while at the same time giving equal credence to a physical world and a historic timeline. History itself, makes it evident that both the scientific community, as well as the Judeo Christian community, have succumbed to the same illusion of time. Bibletime, is a departure from both the classic Judeo Christian belief, as well as that of the scientific community. Knowledge has been increased, and Bibletime, if understood correctly, is progress on both fronts. Instead of continuing in the age old opposition, Bibletime, simply takes to heart the available information from both groups. It’s that simple. Bibletime, in a word, stands for: “Bible”, representing the purpose of the story that history tells, and “Time”, as representing the scientific reality and fact, that it is all a created illusion. Historically, both groups have divisively held their own part of the available information as if they each knew all or better than the other, further prolonging a complete and correct understanding of time. Bibletime combines them. But do not misunderstand. While Bibletime is a departure from both, it does not abandon either truth, but rather accepts both as being reasonable. Just as it is reasonable to scientifically build upon a foundation of collective intelligence, it is also reasonable to build upon the foundation that has been laid out in the scriptures. Just as it is reasonable to trust in the laws of gravity and physics at fixed points while whirling through space amidst a vast unknown, it is also reasonable to trust in a host of witnesses whose lives were a testimony to a truth extending timelessly beyond their own worldly existence about an unseen God. Bibletime, is a term derived from recognizing that history has produced two top competitors on the subject of truth, and brings them together, as proof that history is story time, as told by God.
