Titanosaurs – biggest ever? (BBC 1. 24 January 2016)

E-mail Print PDF

I rarely watch anything by David Attenborough, but for some reason watched this programme (BBC1 , 24th Jan.).

I'm glad I did, just to see the excavation of the biggest ever dinosaur 'Titanosaurs' (actually seven of them) thus far. It would not surprise me if someone in the future dug up something even bigger, such was God's design ability! It is 10% bigger than any other similar species, so they think it might be a new species.

I don't watch his programmes simply because his script is littered profusely with evolution, and, for me, that spoils the programme. It spoils it for me because when he utters a pro-evolution statement I immediately answer back – though he can't hear me!! When I know pro-evolution statements are unscientific and unprovable, it is a source of much annoyance when I can't shout "Hey! Let's argue that point!"

It showed that seven bodies of this dinosaur were found in one place. Also, nearby, some of their eggs.

Remarkably, baby dinosaur skin was found in an egg and Attenborough, perhaps inadvertently, said that the eggs were taken by a flood. He meant a localised flood – but the water pressure, he said at a later time, was not powerful enough to float such huge animal bodies to their final resting place!


The BBC's Devious and Biased Reporting of the Migrant Crisis

The BBC is not stupid. It is just devious and deceiving, pushing a pro-Islam agenda.

  1. Its news on migrants continue to speak in hushed tones, thus lending them sympathy
  2. It refuses to call them 'migrants' even though this is what most are – they only want our money and refuse to integrate... and many are ISIS operatives.
  3. They keep referring to them as 'refugees'. Very few are genuine, The rest are invaders, using the Syrian war to infiltrate illegally. And most are violent and demanding, plainly vaunting Islam.
  4. Cameron is only bringing Muslims from Syrian camps to live in Britain. Local councils are now preparing housing stock for these people, thus placing our own citizens even lower on the list. YET – it has been reported that ISIS now have members in these same camps, killing at will. How does Cameron know WHO is genuine and WHO is a terrorist mingling with the real refugees??? It is a frightening fact that he could be bringing terrorists into the UK. I guarantee there will NOT be rigorous checks.
  5. Cameron wants to send troops to Syria (the obvious and only real option), but government says it wants to exhaust diplomatic options first. In this they prove to be stupid and gormless. Several commentators have likened their stupidity to that of Neville Chamberlain, who waved a bit of paper telling Britain there would be no war. (On the strength of that promise, many escaped Jews returned to their countries and ended up in death camps, gassed or shot). The BBC likes this option!
  6. The BBC also speaks of 'civil war' in Syria. Further stupidity. The evidence shows that ISIS are invaders, NOT Syrians interested in a better deal. They are mainly foreign to Syria and only wish to exterminate ALL Christians (or those bearing that name), Jews, and Muslims who are not of their particular brand of Islam. They have openly told us they are establishing a caliphate. Their reach goes far beyond Syria, to all partsof the earth where they can get their soldiers into place. That is NOT 'civil war'. It is global terrorism.

Please send this email to relevant BBC bosses and demand they adhere to good journalism and NOT to persuade with hushed tones and obvious sympathy. Sympathy is NOT appropriate at this time. 

The Ark: BBC 1 (30 March 2015)

E-mail Print PDF

I promised to review this one-off programme, The Ark shown on BBC1 on Monday 30 March 2015.

Is it not the way of things... pen and paper to hand, my TV began to experience massive glitches and 'freezing' of both vision and sound!! (Something to do with weather) and I missed huge chunks of the film.

So, I can only offer a VERY brief observation of what I managed to see.

The first is the TV blurb itself, which inadvertently warned of the programme's coming problems!

It said: "Epic one-off drama telling the story of Noah: a man who risks everything to save the people he loves. A retelling of the classic tale, fusing elements from the Bible and Qur'an."

There you have it in a nutshell. Typical BBC hatred for the genuine biblical message and an insult to genuine Christians.

1. It did not tell the story of Noah – it gave a very skewed novel-writer's approach to the biblical facts.

2. Noah did not "risk everything" – he faithfully obeyed God and knew he would not lose anything, but would gain God's care, help and rewards.

3. It was NOT his aim to save those he loved – Noah did what he did out of obedience to God! That he also saved his family was just a bonus.

4. Calling it a "classic tale" is another way of calling it a myth, which it was, and is, not.

5. And fusing Bible and Qur'an is a major insult to Christians and God. Mohammed plagiarised huge parts of the Old Testament/Torah so as to mix it with his odd ideas of what life is and Who God is. And he got it all wrong! Where the Qur'an agrees with the Old Testament there can be no argument. But, where it says something different from the Old Testament, the Qur'an has got it wrong. Simple as that. In other words we cannot 'fuse' Bible and Qur'an!


50 Shades...

E-mail Print PDF

Every Christian ministry has produced a long detailed report on the film '50 Shades of Grey'

So, here's my two penny worth...

It is just sin. And Christians have no business watching it, or reading the book.

To do so would be to tarnish a claim to faith, with the desire to watch pornography.

I don't need to see the film or read the book – there are plenty of summaries around.

It is just one of several thousand similar films produced every year by pornographers.

It is simple – don't go to the cinema to watch it. Don't watch a video in secret.


First Assessment of ‘The Bible’ series on Channel 5

E-mail Print PDF

So, I watched the first episode of ‘The Bible’, (Sat.30th Nov, Channel Five). It was billed as authentically close to the original. My first reaction was to think “Here we go again!” and I sat there with writing pad at the ready! Need I have worried?

It all depends on how ‘close’ this closeness to the original is supposed to be. For me the question is, “Is it scriptural, or not?”

The sponsor of the series (five episodes in total) is a website called ‘What’s in the Bible?’ and I must admit to being very disappointed. Why? Because it used children to offer cute ideas about what the bible contains, and a cartoon character to narrate.

For a genuine attempt to teach what scripture says to adults, this is not the approach to use! It implies that what is to follow is just a kind of cartoon, or a mere story.  Charismatics and progressives will love the series of course, but I am very reserved after watching the first episode. And, to add to this, advertisements in the breaks were by Spring Harvest, which hardly represents sound biblical teaching.
