A Biblical Perspective
After lunch, the students began drifting back into the auditorium for the afternoon lecture. Already present at the podium was guest lecturer Doctor Christine Thompson, who holds a PhD in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary. Currently she heads up the Northern California extension in Menlo Park. She had came down and slipped in during the morning session.
To kick off the lecture, she cracked the following joke: “Doctor Wisestien has informed me that this college receives no government grants. Since that’s the case, then I should be able to make the following suggestion without federal repercussions. How about we form a hit squad to go back in time and assassinate some of these present day politicians?”
This crack caused an instantaneous uproar of laughter, whistling, foot stomping, clapping, high-fives, and howls.
After the crowd calmed down she said, “Now that everyone is awake—for I know how sleepy you get after chow—I’ll begin my lecture.”
“How many of you would like to go back in time to make some adjustment in happenstance?” After some raised their hands, she next asked, “How many of you would like to go ahead in time just to be newsy?”
“Before I forget, let me mention that I am not here to preach to all of you, nor proselytize, nor evangelize. I am here to present historical facts and biblical prophecies. My objective is to open your minds, so you may analyze what you see and hear. Now I’ll start with this chart of a biblical timeline.”
“Time has already been mapped out for us. Since God exist outside of our spacetime realm, He knows the beginning, from the end. Therefore, I hypothesis that there’s no need for time travel. What has happened, has happened, and what will be, will be. Traveling back or forward in time won’t change a thing. It’s all shown here.”
Just then professor Wishbone rose up and rebuked her by saying, “I maintain all this Bible stuff is nothing more than mere speculation and fairy tales. There’s no substance to it.”
Thompson: “For instance professor, this next video projection pertains to a prophecy from the book of Daniel, verse 12:4: ‘But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.‘”
“Needless to say, this is what—how you say—what’s going down. So if you’re inquisitive about what else will be coming down, check out the chart. Better yet, read the Bible. Now professor Wishbone, do you still think the Bible is full of fairy tales?”
Rather respond to her, Wishbone left the auditorium in a huff, prompting another audience uproar. Yet in a previous lecture, he acknowledged the scripture in Revelation about the bottomless pit as being a theoretical black hole. Since professor Wisenheirmer remembered the indecent he was left perplexed as to what Wishbone’s problem was. Maybe it was just rebellion towards God, he surmised.
