Lydia knelt in her dark tiny closet and
offered her prayers to God. Her intense whispering was
mirrored on her face as she concentrated on
willing her message to the very throne of the
Lydia pleaded, "Lord please be with me in this debate.
Please bless my words and my presentation and help me prove
to the doubters and unbelievers that you created the
heavens and the earth. I ask you to guide my research
and show your greatness. I ask these things in the name
of your Son Jesus. Amen."
Chester gripped the hotel phone to his ear. His grizzled face turned red.
He exploded, "Paul, what do you mean she has proof God exists?"
Chester laid back on the bed and hissed, "Then get me a copy of the
Godd**n paper and help me figure out a way to prove it is a fraud!
Bring it to the hotel bar, I'll see you in an hour!"
He slammed the phone down and grabbed his jacket. Muttering to
himself, he left the lavish hotel room and headed for the bar on the
Grumbling, "Computer program proves God exists, yeah, and she is a pink baboon!"
Chester won the debate. Lydia presented an excellent argument that
garnered her 3 votes out of 7. She presented proof that scientist
had discovered hidden codes buried in the Torah. It was proven that these codes contained
information about events that had occurred hundreds and/or thousands of years
after the Torah was written. Since the Genesis account was
part of the Torah and The Torah Codes
proved the existence of God, then God must have created the heavens
and the earth as it is detailed in Genesis one and two.
Chester was well prepared. Even though the paper that Lydia
referred to was published in the August 1994 issue of the peer-review journal of Statistical Science, his passioned argument on how statistics can prove anything, plus his superb overview of the fossil record that goes back
almost 3.5 billion years, was enough to convince 4 of the 7 judges that
evolution had more scientific proof than some statistitical anomolies buried in the text of the first 5 books of the Bible.
Chester's dilemma was his ego. He wasn't satisfied with his victory. He had
to prove how preposterous her proof of the Existence of God was and he was
determined to find the flaw in the paper written by Witztum, Rips and Rosenberg.
Chester pealed the label off of his beer and fretted. Paul shook his head and
said, "You didn't even notice our waitress was a babe. What did we come
to Hooters for if you ain't gonna look?"
Chester shook his head, "If I knew Hebrew it would be easy to show that
Rips was making the data prove out based on data bias. I don't think
they did proper controls on the experiments."
Paul sounded disgusted. "So your back on that again? Can't you give it a rest?
You won the
damn debate for Christ's sake!"
Chester leaned forward and with a glint and a firm jaw said, "She shouldn't have
gotten a single vote! After I prove the paper is hogwash no one will ever use it
against me again!"
Paul shook his head and with exasperation asked, "How are you going to do that?"
Chester grinned and said, "I'm going to India. There is a mathematician there
who can prove that what was discovered in the Torah is nothing special at all!
He needs a little help and I'm gonna help him."
The vision came to him as he did his evening meditation. He saw an
unshaven man riding a donkey while carrying a candle.
When the vision was past he got up and sketched
what he had seen during the meditation dream. He could see clearly in his mind the
details of the vision.
He drew an excellent picture of a white American man on a donkey. He paid
special attention to the features of the mans face.
After an hour, a beautiful drawing in distinct
tones of black and greys showed a tired man who
needed a shave on the back of a donkey. The man in the sketching was carrying a candle.
The flame lit up his face in the dark. After he was satisfied the sketch was
as close to his vision as he could manage, he then drew a quick sketch of the man's face
because he knew it was time to prepare for a long awaited visitor.
