GENESIS 3:14 CONFIRM THAT EARLY ANCESTOR OF SNAKE WALK WITH LEGS



Genesis 3:14
Then the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all animals, domestic and wild. You will WALK on your belly..."

Bible confirm that early ancestors of Snake walk or "yalak" with legs ,Where the Bible get this information if the Bible is not Divine origins.

But because of  God's cursed they will crawl there belly the Hebrew use "WALK" or "yalak" it means walking with two or four legs

Scientists have known for a long time that the ancestors of modernsnakes had legs, but never before have we seen a fossil snake that actually had four functional limbs. A new paper published in Science introduces the world to Tetrapodophis amplectus a new species of snake that lived about 113 million years ago. While most of its body is very snake-like, it also has four tiny legs that would have been too weak to support its weight.

The fossil is 19.5 cm long, but the legs are less than a centimeter. They are positioned very near to the head and tail, where modern snakes have small notches instead of legs. So if they weren’t for walking, what good were they?

According to researchers, the legs have very well-defined fingers and claws, which would have made them good for digging and grasping prey. These were not simply vestigial features for T. amplectus.


While it has legs, the snake’s other features are surprisingly similar to its modern descendents. It has a long, flexible spine, malleable jaw, hooked teeth, and scales. It doesn’t have any features that indicate aquatic living, which is yet more evidence against the idea that snakes evolved as aquatic reptiles before moving onto land.

The T. amplectus fossil was noticed by Dr. Dave Martill on a trip to a museum in Solnhofen, Germany where it was displayed as “unknown fossil.” It was in a private collection for decades before it was acquired by the museum, and no one recognized the significance of it until Dr. Martill happened to realize, hey, that snake has legs. These legs might have been useful for T. amplectus, but they weren’t useful enough to be retained by successive generations.

Martill called the creature Tetrapodophis: four-legged snake. “This little animal is the Archaeopteryx of the squamate world,” he says. (Squamates are the snakes and lizards.) Archaeopteryx is the feathered fossil whose mish-mash of features hinted at the evolutionary transition from dinosaurs to birds. In the same way, Martill says, the new snake hints at how these legless, slithering serpents evolved from four-legged, striding lizards.

There are two competing and fiercely contested ideas about this transition. The first says that snakes evolved in the ocean, and only later recolonised the land. This hypothesis hinges on the close relationship between snakes and extinct marine reptiles called mosasaurs (yes, the big swimming one fromJurassic World). The second hypothesis says that snakes evolved from burrowing lizards, which stretched their bodies and lost their limbs to better wheedle their way through the ground. In this version, snakes and mosasaurs both independently evolved from a land-lubbing ancestor—probably something like a monitor lizard.

Tetrapodophis supports the latter idea. It has no adaptations for swimming, like a flattened tail, and plenty of adaptations for burrowing, like a short snout. It swam through earth, not water.

It hunted there, too. Its backward-pointing teeth suggest that it was an active predator. So does the joint in its jaws, which would have given it an extremely large gape and allowed it to swallow large prey. And tellingly, it still contains the remains of its last meal: there are little bones in its gut, probably belonging to some unfortunate frog or lizard. This animal was a bona fide meat eater, and suggests that the first snakes had a similar penchant for flesh.

Martill thinks that Tetrapodophis killed its prey by constriction, like many modern snakes do. “Why else have a really long body?” he says. In particular, why have a long body with an extreme number of vertebrae in your midsection? None of the other legless lizards have that, even burrowing ones. Martill thinks that this feature made early snakes incredibly flexible, allowing them to throw coils around their prey.

Their stumpy legs may even have helped. It’s unlikely that Tetrapodophisused these limbs to move about, and they don’t seem to have any adaptations for burrowing. With tiny “palms” and long “fingers”, they look a little like the prehensile feet of sloths or climbing birds. Martill thinks that the snake may have used these “strange, spoon-shaped feet” to restrain struggling prey—or maybe mates.

But is it even a snake? “I honestly do not think so,” says Michael Caldwellfrom the University of Alberta, who also studies ancient snakes. He says thatTetrapodophis lacks distinctive features in its spine and skull that would seal the case. “I think the specimen is important, but I do not know what it is,” he adds. “I might be wrong, but that will require me to see the specimen first hand. I’m looking forward to visiting Solnhofen.”

It’s certainly possible that Tetrapodophis could be something else. In the squamates alone, a snake-like body has independently evolved at least 26 times, producing a wide menagerie of legless lizards. These include the slow worm of Europe, and the bizarre worm-lizard Bipes, which has lost its hind legs but has kept the stubby front pair. True snakes represent just one of these many forays into leglessness.

Susan Evans from University College London, who studies reptile evolution, is on the fence. “This happens every time a possible early snake is described,” she says. “Opinions on snake evolution are highly polarised.” She says thatTetrapodophis has some features you’d expect from an early snake, and doesn’t easily fit into any other known group of squamates. The specimen is also more complete than many other recently alleged snakes, some of which are known only from fragments of vertebrae or jaw. “Unfortunately, the skull is poorly preserved and this complicates interpretation,” says Evans. “The most important thing is that it is now brought to notice and it will be thoroughly scrutinised by other workers.” Above all, she hopes that someone finds one with a better skull.

Martill insists that Tetrapodophis has “got loads of little things that tell you it’s a snake.” There’s the backwards-pointing teeth, the single row of belly scales, the way the 150 or so vertebrae connect to each other, and the unusually short tail. (In lizards and crocodiles, the tail can be as long as the entire body, but a snake’s tail—everything after the hip—is relatively short.) Some of these features are found in other legless lizards, but only snakes have all of them. And Martill adds that you just wouldn’t expect an ancestral snake to have all the features that its descendants picked up over millions of years of evolution.

He also teamed up with Nick Longrich at the University of Bath to compareTetrapodophis’s features to those of both modern and fossil snakes. Their analysis produced a family tree in which Tetrapodophis came after the earliest known snakes like Eophis, Parviraptor, and Diablophis, but is still very much a snake.

“At any one time in the Cretaceous, chances are you’ve got ten, twenty, maybe thirty species [of early snakes], all going off on their own evolutionary paths,” says Martill. “There would be a whole bunch of very snake-like lizards, all with the potential to become today’s snakes. One of them does. Maybe one of them goes off and loses its front legs and retains its back legs for 20 million years. One maybe loses its back legs and keeps its front legs—and we haven’t found that one yet.”

WORMHOLE



Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle ..."(Matthew 19:24)

A wormhole, or Einstein-Rosen Bridge, is a hypothetical topological feature that would fundamentally be a shortcut throughspacetime. A wormhole is much like a tunnel with two ends, each in separate points in spacetime.

For a simplified notion of a wormhole, visualize space as a two-dimensional (2D) surface. In this case, a wormhole can be pictured as a hole in that surface that leads into a 3D tube (the inside surface of a cylinder). This tube then re-emerges at another location on the 2D surface with a similar hole as the entrance. An actual wormhole would be analogous to this, but with the spatial dimensions raised by one. For example, instead of circular holes on a 2D plane, the entry and exit points could be visualized as spheres in 3D space.

Prophet Moses see the past in time travel vission and John see the time travel future.

KATIWALIAN SA CULTO NI MANALO MALILITAW



Makapagbabago baga ang Etiope ng kaniyang balat, o ang leopardo ng kaniyang batik? kung magkagayo'y mangakagagawa naman kayo ng mabuti, na mga bihasang gumawa ng masama.Kaya't aking pangangalatin sila, gaya ng dayami na dumaraan, sa pamamagitan ng hangin sa ilang. Ito ang iyong kapalaran, ang bahaging sukat sa iyo na mula sa akin, sabi ng Panginoon; sapagka't iyong nilimot ako, at tumiwala ka sa kabulaanan. Kaya't akin namang ililihis ang iyong mga laylayan sa harap ng iyong mukha, at ang iyong kahihiyan ay malilitaw.  (Jeremias 13:23-26)


MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – After a day of avoiding media, Angel Manalo faced reporters past midnight Friday, July 24, with allegations of corruption within the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) group headed by his elder brother Eduardo.

Angel had holed up inside the INC compound in Quezon City, but opened a small window on the compound's gate to issue a statement.

Angel denied he was openly challenging his brother's leadership.

But he also pointed out that there had been "no anomalies" under the group's first two leaders, Felix Manalo and Eraño Manalo.

"Bakit sa panahon ngayon, napakarami nang anomalya? Baka sabihin ng iba, eh kinakalaban namin ang aming kapatid. Hindi po, mahal po namin ang aming kapatid. Kaya lang ang nagiging problema natin, ang mga nasa paligid niya," Angel said.

(Why is it that these days, there are many anomalies? Others might say we're challenging our brother. No, we love our brother. But our problem is with people around him.)

He added: "Nasira na ang doktrina ng Iglesia ni Cristo. Kung papaano ninyo hinangaan noon, nakita ninyo, napakarami nang anomalya. Napakarami nang tiwali na ginagawa sa Iglesia. Iyon po ang ayaw namin."

(The doctrine of the Iglesia ni Cristo is now damaged. In the same way that you looked up to us before, now you can see there are many anomalies. There are many acts of corruption in the Church. That's what we want to avoid.).

MANALO EXPOSE CULT OF MANALO (ISAIAS 19:2-7)



At aking hihikayatin ang mga Egipcio laban sa mga Egipcio: at lalaban bawa't isa sa kanikaniyang kapatid, at bawa't isa laban sa kaniyang kapuwa; bayan laban sa bayan, at kaharian laban sa kaharian. 
 At ang diwa ng Egipto ay mauupos sa gitna niyaon; at aking sisirain ang payo niyaon: at sasangguni sila sa mga diosdiosan, at sa mga enkantador, at sa mga nakikipagsanggunian sa masamang espiritu, at sa mga manghuhula. 
At aking ibibigay ang mga Egipcio sa kamay ng mabagsik na panginoon; at mabangis na hari ay magpupuno sa kanila, sabi ng Panginoon, ng Panginoon ng mga hukbo. 
At magkukulang ng tubig sa mga dagat, at ang ilog ay mawawalan ng tubig at matutuyo. 
At ang mga ilog ay babaho; ang mga batis ng Egipto ay huhupa at matutuyo: ang mga tambo at mga talahib ay mangatutuyo
Ang mga parang sa pangpang ng Nilo, sa baybayin ng Nilo, at lahat na nahasik sa tabi ng Nilo, mangatutuyo, mangatatangay, at mangawawala. (Isaias 19:2-7)

Ang Egipto sa Espiritu (Apocalipsis 11:8) ay Natutuyo na ang mga Ilog nito at Bumabaho dahil binigyan sila ng isang mabagsik na Panginoon at mabangis na Hari na magpupuno sa kanila anopat lalaban ang bawat isa sa kanikaniyang kapatid at bawat isa sa kaniyang kapuwa  ito ang kahayagan ng galit ng Dios sa kanila.

THE mother and brother of Eduardo Manalo, executive minister of Iglesia ni Cristo, have been expelled from their church for sowing disunity, an official said on Thursday.

“Masakit man sa loob ng kapatid na Eduardo Manalo ay ipinasya nila na itiwalag yung mga lumilikha ng mga pagkakabaha-bahagi sa Iglesia. Kaya sa mga pagsambang isasagawa ng Iglesia ni Cristo simula sa araw na ito, ipaalam sa lahat ng kapatid ang pasyang yun ng Tagapamahalang Pangkalahatan,” Bienvenido Santiago, general evangelist of Iglesia, said in a press briefing.

Felix “Angel” Nathaniel Villanueva Manalo and his mother Cristina “Tenny” Villanueva Manalo were expelled for their video uploaded on YouTube claiming that their lives are in danger and that a minister has been abducted.

Tenny is the widow of the late Executive Minister Eraño “Erdy” Manalo.

Aside from Angel and Tenny, the INC also expelled Marco Eraño Villanueva Manalo, and Lolita Manalo Hemedez.

“Ang basa namin doon sa pinahayag nila kagabi sa YouTube ay ibig lamang nilang makakuha ng mga taong magsisimpatya sa kanila. Para sa ganon ay makuha nila ang talagang gusto nila na mapakialaman ang pamamahala sa Iglesia,” Santiago said.

In a video uploaded on YouTube Thursday morning, Angel Manalo said: “Nananawagan po kami sa inyo dahil nanganganib po ang aming buhay. Sana’y matulungan niyo po kami.”

(We are asking for your help because our lives are in danger. We hope that you can help us.)

His mother Tenny asked church members to help her children Angel and Lottie.

“Ako’y nananawagan sa aming mga kapatid sa Iglesia na tulungan ninyo kami dahil may panganib sa aming buhay. Saklolohan niyo ang aking mga anak, si Angel at Lottie at ang kanilang mga kasama. Tulungan niyo rin ang mga ministro na dinukot at hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa nakikita. Kaawaan natin sila at ang kanilang pamilya,” she said.

(I am appealing to our brethren in the church to help us because there is a threat to our lives. Please help my children, Angel and Lottie and their companions. Let us also help the ministers who were taken and until now have not yet been found.)

Denial

Santiago, who faced members of the media seeking comment on the video, said the allegations were not true.

“Meron pang alegasyon na dinukot na ministro. Ibig na palabasin na may kinalaman ang Iglesia, wala pong katotohanan, hindi po totoo yun,” Santiago said.

He added:”Dapat malaman ng lahat na ang Iglesia ay hindi isang korporasyon na pampamilya. Ito ay isang relihiyon na ang sinusunod ay mga patakaran at aral ng Diyos na nakasulat sa bibliya. Hindi makakapayag ang kapatid na Eduardo Manalo, ang kasalukuyang tagapamahalang pangkalahatan na ang Iglesia ay guluhin ng sinumang tao,” he said.

It was clear that the mother and son were sowing disunity in the church so the rules must be applied to them, Santiago said.

Held hostage

Tenny also conveyed her wish to speak to Angel’s brother and INC’s current leader Eduardo Manalo.

A blog by a certain Antonio Ebangelista said that the current INC leadership has expelled nine ministers from Sorsogon, Cebu and Bulacan. The author also alleged that some are being tortured in police camps and their families prevented from speaking about their expulsion from the said religious group.

The ministers who were allegedly being held hostage include a certain “Bro. Nolan Olarte,” one “Bro. Boyet Menorca,” and one “Bro. Joven Sepilllo.”

Some ministers who were supposedly expelled include a certain “Arnel Tumanan” and and a “Bro. Jerson Samson.”

A copy of the alleged circular ordering the expulsion of Angel, Tenny, Lolita and Marco Eraño Villanueva Manalo has since been released on Facebook.

The circular, allegedly signed by INC Minister of Gospel Radel Cortez on July 23, states: “Mga mahal na kapatid, kalakip nito ang circular na babasahin sa pagsamba kaugnay sa pagtitiwalag kina Cristina Villanueva Manalo, Felix Nathaniel Villanueva Manalo, Marco Eraño Villanueva at Lolita Manalo Hernandez.”

The circular should be read by the minister of the local district during the end of each worship service starting Thursday, July 23 to Saturday, July 25.

The controversy came days before the INC will celebrate its 101st anniversary on Monday, July 27.

The "Gods " is the SON (Jesus Christ) and Holy Spirit:

The Son is God:

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. -1John 5:20

The Holy Spirit is God:

But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet. But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. -Acts 5:1-4

The Lord of Lords is the Father:

The Son (Jesus Christ ) and the Holy Spirit is the "Lords"

The Son (Jesus Christ) is Lord:

Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord,.."(Romans 1:3)

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the LORD.(1Corintians 3:8,17-18)



This Three  is The unified One God and the Unified One Lord in ONe "NAME" (in Greek is  "Onoma") means "AUTHORITY and CAUSE".

In 1895, a young Italian named Gugliemo Marconi invented what he called “the wireless telegraph” while experimenting in his parents' attic. He used radio waves to transmit Morse code and the instrument he used became known as the radio.

Inventor of Telivision 
John Logie Baird (Christian/Presbyterian)
FRSE (/ˈloʊɡi bɛrd/;14 August 1888 – 14 June 1946) was a Scottish engineer, innovator, one of the inventors of the mechanical television and the inventor of the first publicly demonstrated colour television system; and the first purely electroniccolour television picture tube. Baird's early technological successes and his role in the practical introduction of broadcast television for home entertainment have earned him a prominent place in television's history.

Inventor of Refrigerator (All Christians)
An American inventor Oliver Evans made the first design for the refrigerator in 1804 but until 1834 none was interested in the same. Jacob Perkins built the first refrigeration machine in 1834. In 1844, a physician John Gorrie built a working unit on the basis of Oliver’s designs. He constructed this unit to create cooling atmosphere for his patients who were suffering from yellow fever.

Inventor of Electric Stove
Canadian inventor Thomas Ahearn (Christian )

 is often credited with inventing the electric cooking range in 1882.

Inventor of Washing machine 
James King (Christian), an America, patented the first washing machine to use a drum in 1851. The drum made King's machine resemble a modern machine, albeit it was still hand powered. Later, in 1858, Hamilton Smith patented the rotary washing machine.

Inventor of Electric Flat iron 
Henry Seely (Christian) invented the electric flat iron in 1882, though the use of hot, flat surfaces to flatten out fabrics dates back thousands of years.

Big Invention 

Inventor of modern automobile 
Karl Benz -(Christian )If we're talking about the first modern automobile, then it's Karl Benz in 1886. But long before him, there were strange forerunners to the today's cars, including toys for emperors, steam-powered artillery carriers, and clanking, creaking British buses.

Inventor of Airplane:
Wilbur and Orville Wright (Christians) were American inventors and pioneers of aviation. In 1903 the Wright brothers achieved the first powered, sustained and controlled airplane flight; they surpassed their own milestone two years later when they built and flew the first fully practical airplane.

Inventor of Helicopter

Paul Cornu (Christian)The very first piloted helicopter was invented by Paul Cornu in 1907A helicopter is a type of rotorcraft in which lift and thrust are supplied by rotors. This allows the helicopter to take off and land vertically, to hover, and to fly forward, backward, and laterally.

Inventor of First train (Christian)

The train AKA the locomotive has two inventors for two different years with two different concepts, implemented into the way we see trains today. In 1804, the first steam powered train would be invented by a man named Richard Trevithick. About 10 years later, another man named George Stephenson would create what is known as the Blucher, the very first train of its kind meant for railway service.
