GOD IS A SPIRIT
To accurately describe the physical appearance of God is an impossible task. The Bible teaches that God is an omnipresent spirit (Gen. 1:2). To describe our creator as intrinsically anthropomorphic (human-like), limits everything about him. It is true that God made us in his own image (Gen. 1:26) but that is the image of love and spirit, not limited to the frailties of flesh and bone.
But to Moses, God appears as "fire out of the midst of a burning bush" (Ex. 3:2), and John the Baptist, sees the spirit of God, "descending from heaven like a dove..." (Jn. 1:32). How God may choose to represent himself is always part of how he communicates with humanity. We cannot limit God's likeness to any single event, manifestation or image. This research uses a natural image on the Pacific Ocean Floor as a metaphor to show the love and mercy of God. But God is not a map, or a man, or anything that humanity can clearly define. According to the Bible, God is an omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, immutable Spirit.
During this period, I also taught college students, graduate students and adults at my church. I did this every Sunday morning for several years. During this period, I never taught about my map discoveries and research or how they might relate to the Bible. My lectures and speeches have been more scholastic than theological. Presentations have been limited mostly to college campuses. I have always felt that the church is no place to promote a work in progress, especially on Sunday morning.
But there comes a time that every valid study should be published. For my study, now is that time. I admit that all my work is not finished but I also realize that it never will be. I publish as a student and not as an expert, but nevertheless, I publish.
If while reading this book you disagree with any point, write me via the publisher. If any reader wants to correct a scriptural interpretation or scientific item, please do the same. Since no one person can be a total expert in all the areas relating to this study, I welcome input and feedback. I hope that this and my continued research will cause each edition of this book to be an upgrade.
Does the face on the Pacific Ocean Floor metaphorically represent the face of God? The evidence seems to support this view. During my first four years of college, I was a member of the college and university speech team. I was able to successfully compete at the state and national levels.
During this time, my professors and coaches permitted me to include into competition, speeches about my map study. Because of this, I have had these maps and many different speeches about them judged by the best people our colleges and universities have to offer. My work has been scrutinized by professors and scholars, judges and students, all totally serious about the competitions involved. While still in college, I produced and directed a 52 minute video tape documentary about these Ocean Floor images. The documentary called, "Scientific Proof of The Deliberate Supernatural," became part of a national awards competition and took more than two years to produce.2
My study was also written about in a front-page story of the Los Angeles Times. That story was picked up by the wire services and circulated throughout the world.3 I was also the subject of an interview and story by NBC television (Channel 4) News in Los Angeles.4 Interest in that story resulted in widespread inquiries. But even with this notoriety, I have limited my lectures and interviews. This is because I still wasn't confident concerning the answer to my main research question: "What is the face on the Pacific Ocean Floor looking at and what causes this face to weep?"
Most dominant is the colossal face of a weeping man on the Pacific Ocean Floor. In his mercy and misery, he is looking at something. What is it that causes him to weep? What is he looking at? Attacking the image on the Pacific Ocean Floor appears to be a Devil on the South Atlantic Ocean Floor. At the Devil's throat is Antarctica. Helping the Devil on the South Atlantic Ocean Floor is a Dragon. We see this Dragon when combining the topographic maps of the North Atlantic Ocean Floor and the North Polar Sea Floor. On the topographic map of the Indian Ocean Floor, we see an angel (Cherubim) with a flaming sword. This angel is pulling the demon on the South Atlantic Ocean Floor, off the weeping man on the Pacific Ocean Floor
Comprehensive coverage of this topic is impossible at this time. This discovery is still so new that there are no real experts who have knowledge of it. I am a researcher, not an expert, but like any responsible researcher, I have relied heavily on my bibliography and other people who are experts in their respective fields. This book will focus on the face on the Pacific Ocean Floor. The other ocean floor images are presented here as they relate to the face on the Pacific Ocean Floor.
Footnotes and bibliography are part of this book for the convenience of the reader and in fairness to those where specific information is retrieved. This book can only document a small fraction of what there is to be learned about the face on the Pacific Ocean Floor. It will take physical geographers, computer experts, mathematicians, and theological scholars (working in joint effort and independently) to adequately explore this phenomena. Perhaps by studying these images and seeing how they relate to each other, we can learn more about the God of the Bible, and the age old struggle of "good versus evil."
When we consider all of the images on the floors of our oceans, nothing comes close in size, structure, detail and importance to the face on the Pacific Ocean Floor. It shows the right side of a man's head. The features show his vivid emotions and mercy. We see by his tear-track that he is weeping. What is the focus of his attention? The face on the Pacific Ocean Floor covers almost one-half of the Earth. Whatever this face is looking at, must be the most important thing in the world!
