7:00 PM - The statements about weather in the Bible are numerous, telling, but often overlooked. The Bible not only detailed the Hydrological Cycle centuries before the scientific community, but also details specific information about weather and weather related phenomena that even today still puzzles the meteorological and climate forecast community. This lecture will look at some issues related to Biblical interpretation as it relates to weather, the weather as a demonstration of the power of God, and an overview of the current hysteria over "Global Warming" and something called the "Evangelical Climate Initiative."
