Re: Tabernacle of the Sun words and graphics
 distance of our Earth from the Sun, 93,000,000 miles, and divide it by the speed of Light of 96,000 miles per second and its answer comes out to 500 seconds for light from the Sun (SON) to get to us.

93,000,000 miles divided by 96,000 miles per second is 968.75 seconds.

the distance from the Sun to the Earth varies from 91,393,184 to 94,517,917 miles (after conversion from AU) from http://www.astropixels.com/ephemeris/perap2001.html

The speed of light is 299,793,458 m/s or 186,282 mi/s so the time from Sun to Earth is 490 to 507 sec (+/- error in measurements).

My big question is why you think the designer used seconds. The only biblical time measurements I can recall are hours (1/12th of daylight so varied), day, season, and year.

Re: Tabernacle of the Sun words and graphics
The ratio of 60 seconds per minute and 60 minutes per hour are arbitrary. If you use a different measurement of time, your numbers are completely different.

What proof do you have that the designer used seconds as opposed to any other unit of time? Why not the Chinese ke?

Re: Measure of a man !!!
 humans are not different sizes, they have the same ratios

Having grown up with mother & sisters, dated women & been married, I can tell you women have different proportions. I have been inflicted with long discussions on which brands of clothing fit which women. Avoid all women once you hear the words "shopping" and "business casual"

Re: Measure of a man !!!
 the span of 9 inches (finger to thumb) and cubit of 18 inches (finger to elbow)

Wrong. My little finger to thumb is 8 inches. Thumb to index finger is 4 inches. Tip of middle finger to outside of elbow is 17 inches. Tip of middle finger to inside of elbow is 14 inches. My foot is not a foot long.

All human measurements are arbitrary so all your ratios are arbitrary.

Edited by 14174dm, : clarification
