Creation and Evolution
This is an entry in a series of Torah science lessons which tend to show how a religious symbol can be understood better by looking at the microscopic and detail findings of modern science.
So, although they are not like the stunning proofs of Torah science in physics and chemistry, they are candidates for Torah science.
The Religious Laws
Many Bible symbols involve pregnancy and childbirth. In this article we will look at the issues to try to understand.
The Science Pattern Design And Laws
Most women are not conscious of the day they ovulate and many due dates are simply an estimate. People were certain that pregnancy was connected to semen and the menstrual period and that it took about nine months. But it was not until recently that we concluded that a full term pregnancy took 38-40 weeks and an overdue birth ends at 42 weeks. Amniotic fluid is replaced every three to four hours. Yet the Bible has these two time periods written into the sanctuary, the laws and the covenants. In addition, salvation is described as a new birth of the "fruit of the womb" where the righteous emerge at 40 periods of time and the wicked at 42. When the time is defined as months or years it is "between three and four years" or 40 and 42 months. In reality what is measured is the period in which the endometrium grows. The events also mimic the name and blessings of the children of Israel in their birth order. You must understand the prophecy of the twelve tribes to understand the associations that are made.
Unexpectedly, this information points out that God begins counting your life even before fertilization occurs.
The Reproductive System: The Miracle Of Birth
|Table 52.1 The Pregnancy Milestones|
|1||-||Last menstrual period (LMP)||Seed of the Woman||Seed of God|
|2||-||One ovary is growing and ripening to an egg. Estrogen increases. Endometrium grows|
|3||1||Ovulation. Estrogen increases|
|Pregnant. The fertilized egg travels for 3-7 days down the fallopian tube||Reuben |
|Beginning of Strength|
|Unattached. It floats freely in the uterus for a few days (3 days)||Simeon |
|Attached to Uterus. It implants into the wall causing slight bleeding. Progesterone increases||Levi |
|4||2||A ball of cells with three layers. Placenta forming||Judas-Priest conspiracy|
|5||3||Spinal column, brain, heart. Morning sickness|
|6||4||Praise the Lord. Heart beats. Eyes, ears, mouth, arm and leg buds||Judah||Circulatory System. |
Judgment In the Garden of Gethsemane
|Risk of miscarriage and rejection of the baby begins. |
25% of conceptions do not survive until 20 weeks
|Miscarriage: Asher (Death), Gad (Contraction), Naphtali (Expelled).|
|9||7||Fetus. Tail disappears. Bones cartilage forming. Umbilical cord and placenta growing. Lips|
|12||10||Breathing movements, peristalsis, kidneys. Placenta fully formed||Issachar |
|Movement through the Bowels. |
Trials and crucifixion
|13||11||Intestines, growing in the umbilical cord, now move to abdomen|
|14||12||Reflexes operate, facial muscles attached. Baby smiles, frowns, wrinkles brow. Palate.Risk of miscarriage very low now|
|16||14||Placenta fully formed and functional||Zebulun |
|16||14||Sensitive to light. Sucking motions. |
Amniotic fluid regenerates every 3-4 hours.
Mother can now feel the movements (Quickening)
|John takes Mary |
|16||14||Genitals are well formed enough to distinguish gender||Dinah|
|17||15||Taste buds develop (sweet and bitter)|
|18||16||Ears stand out. Baby might hear||Obeys SHEMA|
|19||17||Vernix covers skin||Body Wrapped|
|21||19||Baby can swallow||In the grave|
|22||20||Completely covered by lanugo downy hair which holds vernix in place||Protected|
|23||21||Uterus complete with lifetime supply of eggs. Testes descending. Rapid eye movement||New Life|
|24||22||Weight gain begins, liver functions. Sleep-wake cycle regular||He awakes|
|25||23||Baby responds to familiar sounds (eg your voice) with movement||He hears God|
|26||24||Lungs produce surfactant and can inflate normally||He breathes|
|28||26||Eyes open||Eyes open|
|29||27||Fat, organs mature, muscles. 300 bones fully developed. Movements now restricted. Baby produces red blood cells||Gets up. Still in the tomb|

|32||30||Baby practices breathing||Prays|
|33||31||Iris responds to light||Dawn Is Breaking|
|33||31||Stores iron in the liver. Testicles finish descending|
|35||33||Enough surfactant for lungs to work on their own|
|36||34||Baby in birth position. Gains weight quickly|
|37||35||Cortisone produced by baby will help in breathing|
|38||36||The vernix covering the skin is dissolving|
|39||37||Lungs are the last organ to reach maturity. Antibodies|
|40||38||Optimal time for birth||Benjamin|
(Son of the right hand)
|42||40||Mucus plug removed||Stone removed|
|41-42||39-40||Birth. Placenta begins to break down||Guards Fall|
|Birth: Asher (Placenta dies), Gad (Contraction), Naphtali (Expelled)||Resurrection|
The Messianic Prophecy
Although we show this as the birth of Christ from the world, the same steps apply to the development of the perfect church for 2000 years until the birth at the end of time.
The order of development of the baby mimics the events of the Plan of Salvation in the order of the birth of the sons of Jacob. If we focus on the major accomplishments at the beginning and the end we can see a pattern.
|God is The Creator Of The Universes. Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, "I, the Lord, am the maker of all things, stretching out the heavens by Myself and spreading out the earth all alone. Causing the omens of boasters to fail, making fools out of diviners, causing wise men to draw back and turning their knowledge into foolishness. Confirming the word of His servant and performing the purpose of His messengers." (Isaiah 44: 24-26)||Time: 30 Minutes
