Some random preachers are claiming that the coming total solar eclipse in the United States indicates God's judgment on America, not a cyclic event caused by the geometry of our solar system.

Others claim that a solar eclipse took place at the time of Jesus' crucifixion in order to explain the alleged "darkening" of the skies. It couldn't have just been a cloudy day in Palestine? :confused:

If Jesus was crucified on the eve of Passover, that evening there would have been a full Moon, the very opposite of what is required for a solar eclipse. :lol:

as we have the "julian date", we know all data for lunar or solar eclipses, from January 1, 4713 BC - before any dates in recorded history, even chinese ones; to the far future in 7980 years long periods (no date for any apocalypse)

Some random preachers...

the wikipedia entry contains some math (complex formulas with magic words as "mod" and "div"); ununderstandable by random/average preachers

up to now i used to believe america is one nation under god
did it change?


fyi
there is a windows program (i've said program, not the stupid today's word "application"...) :
moontools.exe

you can download it (& learn a lot) from - http://www.fourmilab.ch/moontoolw/ -
it is not virus infected, as it was developed in the windows 3.10 times
Quote:
Moontool was originally written for the Sun Workstation under the SunView graphical user interface by John Walker in December of 1987. The program was posted to the Usenet news group comp.sources.unix in June 1988 and was subsequently widely distributed within the Sun user community. As the original posting began, “What good's a Sun without a Moon?”.

That's true. Richard Carrier's analysis of the so-called "eclipse" during Jesus' crucifixion in his book "Proving History" is the most masterful refutation I have ever read anywhere. Very interesting!

I have never heard of any socalled eclipse at Jesus crucifixion. Where did that lame idea come from?

Should we hear a probability refutation of the galactic starship which beamed him up into space?
