This message is for Derek.
Hi Derek, I watched your video on YouTube where you discussed the statue in Daniel 2 from a periodic table point of view. I found it very interesting. I also found you very competent.
I'm a Christian Literary Analyst, and it is from that aspect that I study the Bible. There is much to say about that approach as it is quite unusual but I'm writing to you about Daniel 2 now. We can discuss everything I do later on if we get to that point.
I've been studying Daniel 2 and, yes, I am in total agreement, more or less, with the analysis that has been done as far as justifying Daniel's interpretation of the dream. It is correct. However, a couple aspects of the story in Daniel 2 bear further discussion in my opinion.
Based on my analysis, the prophetic value of Daniel 2, really, the entire Book of Daniel, extends into the End Times as well. In other words, the prophetic value of Daniel 2 does not reside solely on Daniel's interpretation of the dream to the King. There are other interpretations as well to be found there that relate directly to the End Times....Blessings, Jacob
Thank you very much for this powerful information! I have been involved with ecosystem models of large water bodies (primarily hydropower reservoirs in the USA as well as in Europe, Africa, S. America, and Asia), and our models can be calibrated to all these water bodies by calibrating to measured water quality constituents, physical settings (i.e., waterbody size, outlet characteristics, hydrological conditions), and meteorological conditions. This is only possible due to the integrity of God's creation across all aspects of physical, chemical, and biological characteristics. Your creation function research contributes greatly to characterizing our Lord's creation and His huge provision to all man-kind. We are greatly blessed by His "creation" foundation as well as the evidence that the Lord has provided for us to confirm it on scientific levels....There is HUGE integrity between your work and what we see on the macro levels for water resources. Thanks, Jim Ruane, Reservoir Environmental Management
