All the way down is like okay. I think traffic is common c. o. k. I think traffic is coming. Intuition and gut feeling was like just call jess go. Because intuition and gut feelings did calculations the instinct calculations in my mind and was lack down. Distance of the vehicle is far far far far far away because you can tell by a light beam in how in how bright the light is coming from that direction. So that's intuition and gut feelings. They made the calculation suomi intuition and gut feel at the map intuition and gut feel de too hard work for me all do something. That was simple on it to do with something. That was easy.

Wet Notes - 9-13-21
"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio from monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one first up today is in another idea for diving with a purpose in one of the most recent newsletters from the coral restoration foundation the coral chronicles. There was a report that cr f. is teaming up with the atlantis. Dive resort in douma getty to offer a unique opportunity to participate in a week long program at the result in helping them build and maintain the largest coral nursery endowing. Actually the town where. Atlantis is located. The program is being sponsored by the coral restoration foundation. The loveland living planet aquarium and the meat foundation. The program runs from september twenty fourth to october. First two thousand twenty two there are planned educational sessions on coral ecology along with restoration efforts and techniques. You also conduct restoration. Dives along with some fun dies. This sounds really fascinating. One of the pictures into newsletter showed the table coral at apo island. I vividly remember that area when we dove air in two thousand nineteen there wasn't any pricing available in the article and you'll have to contact the hotel directly if you have the time and desire to dive with a purpose check out this program and market on your calendar. Long time ago. Donna and i lived in hawaii that was in the mid nineteen eighties. At that time we got to experience. What was probably one of the first while in walls in honolulu. If you're not familiar with wilem walls you can check them out. The wall was a large mural of the humpback whale on the side of a building near waikiki. It was quite impressive. Well it might not be a while and wall but if you happen to be near brant rock in mansfield massachusetts you can catch a the view of a mural of a large shark painted on the side of an old restaurant according to wicked local dot com. The mural was painted by a local artist. Shane leonard. Shane was a former football player at boston college. Who has a passion for painting and a passion for sharks. Now the muros on the side of the former arthur and patch restaurant that closed back in two thousand fifteen. The shark faces divers as they head down ocean street which is a one way street. So you can't miss it say. Shane says he likes the way shark. Show emotion. the photo is pretty impressive. there's no guarantee that the building won't be torn down. Now that is unoccupied but according to shane. Even if it doesn't survive it was worth doing so if you happen to be near mansfield mass check out the shark mural on ocean street about a month ago. Patio wear foundation announced their fourth annual aware week. Now this year it will run from september. Eighteenth through september twenty six two thousand and twenty one the whole idea behind aware week is to empower the global dive community to lead or take part in conservation activities in courses focused on local action for global impact in the past aware has focused on two elements marine debris and vulnerable marine species this year in concert with patties blueprint for ocean action. They're adding three more components. Climate change marine protected areas and coral reefs. Some of the ways. That dive shops can participate or by conducting aware classes like dive against debris coral conservation or the aware specialty. Also like us. You can become a one hundred percent aware dive centre where you provide a monthly contribution in support of the patty certifications you award. We are very proud to be one hundred percent aware. But here's something that. Patty aware foundation needs to work on. We need more notice as to win. Aware week is happening. I wasn't sure what was happening this year and our calendar filled up and we weren't able to get things scheduled as i mentioned at the top of the show. We've already created are twenty twenty two calendar and it would be nice to know when aware week twenty twenty two is happening. I also mentioned at the top to show that the re photo contest results were in and that i didn't win while scuba diving magazine. Magazine's two thousand and twenty one through the lens contest is also complete. The winners were recently released at scuba diving. Dot com and the photos will be revealed in september october special photo issue. They received one thousand seven hundred and nineteen photos from around the world. The contest categories included behavior compact camera macro and wide angle. The entries were judged on beauty originality and unique encounters. I check them out and they are spectacular. I only wish. I had the talent impatience to do that kind of work. Now if you wanna get a jump onto twenty twenty two contests they will start accepting entries january third two thousand twenty two and you can submit your photos through may thirty first two thousand and twenty two and finally we recently received our two thousand twenty two aqualung buyer's guide along with information on all the new products coming down from aqualung apex. So i thought. I'd give you a little preview on what's on the horizon. I from aqualung. They are releasing a new regulator the helix pro and the helix it looks like the helix pro is a mid range regular and i think it's replacing their core. It is a balanced first and second stage in his environmentally sealed with four low pressure ports and two high pressure ports. It was built for cold water and has the automatic closure device or a cd. lower end. helix is not environmentally sealed. And it doesn't have a cd and it's designed for warmer water. Also coming out in two thousand and twenty two is their new. Aqua fluck aqua flex men and aqua flex woman wetsuits. I think it's a redesign of their tried and true. Aqua flex line they also have a two millimeter. Free flex wetsuit now. The i one hundred computers going to come in a new color yellow and speaking of colors. They've added a number of different colors to various products including something called sand petrol red and orange as for eight packs. They also have a new regulator the xl four osha and it is billed as a totally sustainable regulator bay from post consumer waste it comes in grey or mint with some great etching. On the first stage. I suspect it's just like the xl four plus being an overbalanced diaphragm regulator with two hp and four l. p. ports. It looks pretty. Sharp and apex is releasing a new dive computer to the sx. It will be program can program up to six gases and monitor six transmitters. The has a titanium basil making it lightweight endurable but also has a color display. There's something more that require. Some more research It says it has in oh to analyze or onboard. But no to sell gotta check that out a little bit. There's a lot more out there and over time. I'll give you more updates from both aqualung and apex. Well that wraps up wet notes. Here on scuba shock. Radio for monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one

"Because you once you get to a certain point you have to have a lot of tesla's other advantage is not just. Fasd in relatively car. You gotta have you know the cheap drive train. The batteries the ability to crank out large numbers of cars at reasonable margins at really really low prices like that starts being the difference between at profitable in an not profitable roads now. I don't think. I don't think we start to get into that zone until we're still talking about like a million robo. It in fact will be more than a million. Because we we'd be talking about the us europe and some of china also which has a lot of the us has hundreds of thousands of rideshare vehicles and taxis and then europe is double that china's a lot you know it's another tripling on top and so it's a million plus vehicles in the worldwide fleet. But you can see geographic locations like if if for instance the us turned out to be the really profitable market. Or i don't know. Germany turned out to be the really profitable market could save bunch of players pouring into those markets right and saturating them pretty quickly driving driving the profit out of the profitable market and then going number two and three and so on it could happen But it it's going to depend on how long it takes kruse way mon other competitors to scale and how long it takes tesla to get to scale it tests. You can keep pumping those cars out there right. And when fasd is gonna transition from from Like not viable to saturating flee over twelve months or something. There's going to be a window where it crosses and then a couple of big market regular tape. Regulators will approve it and and pretty quickly. they'll be able to deploy those those vehicles. And when i the numbers on rubber taxes. Profitability is high enough that i think it will be able to attract the vehicles. Even if tesla doesn't own those vehicles as i was looking at wanna arc. Scenario is dave had some more conservative numbers. He want me to drop into the bowl scenario and then we were looking we were..

James has a ton of knowledge on this space us actually on the podcast back in twenty eighteen for those of you who have listened for a long time and today were continuing some of those conversations learning a little bit more about tesla strategy here. So this is a multi part conversation. Make sure to subscribe for you and with that we'll jump right in. I've been doing neural networks for a really long time although it hasn't been a job it's a an lately. It's turned into an investing thesis. So for the last decade or so.

"My audience going on here so Sorry, threw me off there. But one of one of the better side you know why? Look at contemporary predominantly American Christianity and I think that maybe one of the better sides of things is is. Having A. I think being a minister of God when you're preaching before a congregation every week. That's very important. Know it's it's such. It's so precious to have a pastors and preachers that will do that and and walk people through God's Word and teach out of his word, and there's nothing more important than that. You can do within the church, but then to be able to come alongside as a a para church, and then maybe it'd be able to get things kind of more on a little sporadic like our long basis. You know where we just talk about something for an hour and. In more general overview of a topic or jump around, you know more of the topical stuff I. Think I've always felt that topical stuff. Really it's. It's place should be more in a para church setting non in a not a month, a weekly sermon series type of setting and. I'm and. So I'm I'm just feel blessed to be. Just little old me I. You know, I'm not I'm not a trained theologian, but just to be able to do what I can help. You. Know at least get people thinking and point people to the word and hopefully get them to go to a local pastor. That can can teach them verse by verse through the word. Anything is so much. Thanks for having me board. I also wanted to say you know as far as that Para Church thing and I'm not necessarily saying that the pastors shouldn't do that. But you know like. Bob. Does. Bob. Preaches week by week verse by verse on Sunday. But then he's got critical issues commentary and and that definitely is a vital. Vital role that a lot of pastors do where they have their their ministry, but they've got their pair churches well so. Rexel, you let me give a quick live for verse, by Verse Reaching I really appreciate the fact that you said that one of the reasons why it's helpful for pastors is because we need to learn to. One of the things, I always say, isn't goofy a lot of people in seminary who've never taught the Bible verse by Verse and I. Think a lot of systematic theologies will break down once they do accidental worked through the scriptures. I really learned a lot by doing it verse. By verse I tell you what the other a practical benefit is. Limits our bias. If. I were to just pick the topics. All the time bias will come out, but his handling the taxes accounts risk by verse, is to handle the whole counsel of God. So Knowledge Ing Johnston Nature I, owned by his by verse, by verse, it kind of limits that them. Your vital ministry, because there's a lot of topics there need to be handled and. Handled a lot of them I. Know You're GonNa do a lot more. Shirts well, thank you I I have always appreciated your encouragement and. Being Pastor, it's it's been encouragement and you've always been there for me I. appreciate that as well. So. Great blessing dicing. For, having me all. Well, we'll have you back again soon. So hopefully, next time the virus will be a thing of the past two it'll be. Never going away, but hopefully, it'll. It'll die down low enough soon, it just won't be on anybody's mind. You know it'll be like the Spanish flu. We just don. We don't consider it anymore. You know we'll be sharing cope with just two straws in one month. In the same office. And what? He.

To the rest of creation. Don't look at me and and and and then think that somehow that reflects on God and who he is. A man while said I. Love that passage Andy I love the fact that here you look at the we if we say that we have sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not as if we confessors ends, he's faithful unjust cleanses from just as the we there's believers, this is a mess. I'd leave for believers I think. Your ticket was planning, you could be sin lesson entering the symbols perfection. John's review. We still have today. Exactly do you have people who claim that sort of sanctification but? The ones like you said, Andy have to be those who are. Acknowledging that we have lived lives that do not reflect God's character, and it's a great way of putting it to say look, it's on me. It's not on him. And if we do that for those who are willing to admit that. He's the one who's GONNA forgive us, and by the way I think that texting buys them at believers never Jesus in the beginning of his Gospel, Ministry Mark Ma and fifteen, he says repent and believe the Gospel. Every. Has repented meaning they've turned from idolatry. They've turned from sin and they'd turned to faith in France. So Faith Brin repentance are like two sides of the same coin. Heads, faith entails is repentance. If I repent repenting to faith, I'm turning from unbelievable turning to faith in Christ. If I have faith in crisis, because I've repented. So they had they go hand in hand. What's interesting is bats initial salvation. It happens once in her life at conversion body leads to a life of continual repentance or I'm generally aware that, hey, I fall short I'm misrepresenting his name here, and that's something that's very healthy when people are convicted by San, it's a sign of generosity.

"On. But. The point years. When he Israel's sin, they were brought into Babylonian captivity in the Babylonian Sibyl who who is this God y'all way. He's a, he's a pushover. We can take these Israelites all the why? Why are the Israelites in Babylonian Captivity because God was faithful to was promised? In Deuteronomy Twenty eight? If you send, you become an dollar, I'm going to hand you over to the nation's. The irony is the spanking of the Israelites because of their San led to the district of God's name among the Pagans as. Greater. Exactly. That's the greatest. Hall saying that he look you rascals. You claim to love the law which. Banned Brazil. Why don't you basically get off your high horse instead of looking to try to obey perfectly that you can't do why don't you come to Christ? Who did it for you? Trying them to, he's the one. He's the perfect Israelite that you never could be ease. The perfect son. He's the perfect image bearer who never blasting the name. You need him. That's what he's pointing. Emma. So then another another aspect of this would be. that. You know as I'm looking through the rivalry chapter in in basically. In a thought. Wow. The fissile while too and that was. Recognizing that sin is done in ignorance just needs atoning for just as much as overt sin. and. You don't think you know think that logically through that that in a wide isn God, kind of take an easier softer tone with ignorance, you do something not knowing it said. He doesn't take softer. Tony, HIA tones for it. He provides provision for it, but he doesn't excuse wipe it away and I and I really think that the what's what's important there? Is Again, it's not that you're doing something bad in your action, but that you're being bringing disrepute to him in his name in that, that's that's what really needs atoning for, and we see you know just as one example I have Hebrews nine seven just to show. You know. But but into the second about the temple, only the high. Priest goes. And he but once a year and not without taking blood which he offers for himself and for the unintentional sins of the people. So just that's just one passage where we're showing that these unintentional sin is being atone for provision for it, but it's not. It's not just being ignored. It's not being in a cast. You know kind of forgotten about it needs to be addressed and I, and I, really think it's because of that blasphemous aspect of it that we're we're testifying improperly of who God is and his character. Andy. That's well said I think that's one of the reasons today. I really fear for a lot of evangelical who delve into. kind of this posse of saying we'll. We'll approach God in worship. Anyway, we want one of the examples that's kind of hot as of late as the Aena Graham which is completely paying in the claim is that's a source that you can use to be sanctified, but it's something that Christ never ordained. neograph.

"As you unpack that through the rest. Romans one. The way that God is actually showing his wrath on them is he just let them be who they are. Is Hands them over to just be who you are because they don't know God. They don't know his path, they go down the path of destruction of godliness and they just keep sending in sending in sinning and the only. Intervenes. In Christ, he regenerates US enables us to believe and then renews our mind through the word. That we live godliness. The only stopgap against God living is the word of God. The. Also as you keep going down through Romans one, what you find is God's turning people over to that and that. They're incurring even greater wrath. Drink. And then as we go in the Romans too in kind of swinging back a little bit too that the third commandment thing. We you know we're kind of getting back. Romans too. Then moves on to to really addressing Judaism in the leadership you know in the day. The day I. Guess Really. In in this taking. God's name in vain and presenting them wrong worshipping him wrong.

We see that at an Zia forty nine, and of course, ultimately with filled the Messiah, but they are to be these Israelites or white to the going into the nation's, but instead they they live no differently than the Pagans, and so that's why you never, Babylon, really represents Olga as opposed to the things of God.

"The idea that we don't represent his character and one of the passages often I used when I present aspel to show the dire straits we're in is five four through five where it says literally anyone who's done, evil cannot sojourner live with on. Reason. Why we've misrepresentative his name were those who are in rebellion and this misrepresenting God's character because his name, the person's name in the old. Testament the ancient Near East at represented their character represented who they are will when we bear his name and we live in such, a way would bring district act upon it or actually as you pointed out Andy where the presenting his character and we've done. I and so the sin that we have is so regis, it's of infinite. Of. Consequence, and so that's lying. The debt was so drastic that need to be paid Jesus Christ alone. So yeah, absolutely. It's a great catch. The, Amartya. By the way is Ali from the Hebrew term top of which is the Missing the mark and Yeah. It's missing the mark of guy even our own English. Thin.

It means it's an archery term. Jurors Yeah I. Didn't know the English. That's very interesting. Yeah. So good. Then, a CB's or assess. I I saw the transliteration, not the the Greek Description of it but. It's it a sin sin as described as ungodly or godless nece. You know. Yeah, yeah and and just seeing that that.

I Timothy One nine understanding this that while that, the law is not laid down for the just for the lawless and disobedient for the ungodly and centers for the unholy than Profane for those who strike their fathers and mothers for murderers continues on. and then I Peter Eighteen.

"My God do not delay because your city and your people. Are called by your name. What really upset Daniel about the sins of the people was the act that he knew they were bearing the name of Galway. Will they being image bearers and being covenant partake of ways name they live? No differently than the paying. And so they brought district pugh upon the name of your way, and that's what. Struck about, and so I think that is an indicator than the third commandment. Isn't simply about using the Lord's name is a cuss word. That's. When? You Hit, you hit your thumb with a hammer while your opponent a nail and and you've got your say you know what unbelievers say when they Gotha, that's Certainly sinful. But that's not really what the Third Commandments Getting A. That's right in exacerbates living in such a way that we bring disrepute upon his name, and so it's really a call like we see in the book of James, do, not just be here's of the word, but to be doers of. Those who say look I wanNA live in such a way that I don't bear his name in vain I, don't bring disrepute. Out. Okay now. I think, I'm almost ready to go to the big angle, but before I do that, I wanna make sure that we Kinda sussing that out. was there anything else you WANNA cover and as far as the image of God before we get to our our our big caveats side of things. You, know you know I think the Jimmy? The big issue is that something that's in ancient inherent because like you said, the fact that we're traded God, it's not something we earn. A lot of people will wrestle as you mentioned, and as you and I were talking people will wrestle. Does it mean to be made in the image of God that we look like him and I think that's absurd. As you pointed out, God is spirit and we have to worship him in spirit truth and So the point is I think dodd leaves that alone there's something just inherent to who we are made in his image. That's important. Well, I would like maybe. I don't want to dwell on this, but but just addressing that that physical appearance thing just to show that that can't necessarily be what this means to be made in the image of God. I'M WE LOOK at? We're not told a ton of things about the angels, but there are plenty of things in the scriptures that suggest to us that the angels if they appear to us can do. So in a way that we don't even know that they're angels the where to be careful because we might be entertaining angels unaware. That's the case. Then in angels are not said to be made in the image of God. So. If it's just an appearance thing, how can they? You know who would look very similar to us? You know indistinguishable from us? How can they not be made in the image of God? Yet we are. So there's something there. and..

"But because because this holy righteous transcendent all-powerful glorious God made us. That's where the value comes. In. Part of that, which is under assault again today by the left, and he is this idea of being rational human beings and what I mean by that is the postmodern era is really tried to claim that human beings can never have true knowledge of God. The most modern idea really I believe stems from Immanuel Kant and the way it stemmed from him in the sixteen hundred seventeen hundreds was the idea that. He claimed that there was no one who had access to truth. And, so he would distinguish between what it, what he called the new world and the phenomenal world numeral world is the world. As it is and the phenomenal world is the world. As it appears. What he said is we can never get to the world as it is. So you can never come true knowledge, well, that post modern thinking as seat in the left wing of America and what they're trying to do that use that to take away our bibles. into the. In. Even into the beginning of the twenty first century, the attack on the Bible was to say, your Bible isn't accurate. Your Bible isn't true. But Christians became very adaptive proving the Bible is true. So the postmodern generation switched tactics and what they did is they said it's not that you your Bible isn't true. It's that you can't no truth. and. So because you can't no truth, you can't know things from the written language will think about first John, five, Thirteen Johnny, Apostle says I, write these things? Do you who believe in the name of the son of God that you may know that you have eternal life? John. It personal spokesman for Jesus Christ says. Which means he speaks for price, you can know. That which brings salvation, and so God heard of being an image bearer of God means that were rational and we can understand his word. I can preach the word of God all day long to my a cocker Spaniel upstairs, but he's not gonNA understand a lick of it. He's now. And understand the precepts of God but Andy. Olsen. Can I can and other human beings made in the image of God, and that's one of the things that I think is again, under attack is the rationality of human beings made in his image. Well I think another big angle that. We wanted to hit on here. Is and I know you had prepared for. This is to talk about how being made in the image of God. carries. into the third commandment. Yeah. Great Point you have been talking a lot about this over the years and we often talk in church about it and I think you're exactly right and you're the first one to kind of brought it up and I think it's a great point and. I heard about it through. If I remember correctly, I wanNA say Phil. Johnston of grace to you as I think it was the first when you're going to get to what? We mean but. Yeah. Thank the third commandment. I'll just talk a little bit about it in. This has been kind of a bookable over the years for me to I'd like to kind of explain it to the audience to help people I exit twenty.

"So by man shall his blood be shed, and so the institution of human government is designed to protect human beings made in the image of God either way we see that also reinforced in Romans Thirteen in under the new covenant. All explains the government does not bear the sword in vain so. That's the role of government is to protect human beings who are image bearers of God and I I'm I'm so glad you mentioned genesis dying six and I think that I mean. There's so much like I said. Tell me can do a doctoral thesis on. So I mean, there really is so much A. To consider an here. And when we talk about being image bearers. There are kind of different angles that that you can look at it through and one of it is purely through creation angle, the through genesis one that we were made in God's image. But then if you look at it more of a New Testament Angle, we find that we are being renewed and re reformed into the image of God in that whole. Process. So, and this is not synonymous like in one. We, we are image bearers, we are in the image of God. We are being made into the image of God. So we're talking about two different kinds of. Ways that we would use the term. You know two different definitions of the term. Genesis nine six is important because that's post fall. So we find. That That I, it's not saying that if if if man sheds God's people's blood. If mansions another man's blood that. So even in our fallen state in that that creation sense, we're still we are in God's image. Not. Just being made in God's image. Well said Andy that's a great distinction single human being whether they're a believer or not They may be the greatest pagan or eight, but being made in the image of God still means they demand protection, God, demands, protection of human being. So I like to distinguish when we talk about two different categories. One is every human being made in the image of God deserves protection. But only the children of God who come to faith in. Jesus. Christ are going to be spared. The eternal wrath and be saved from their sins, and so we can distinguish between image bearers and the children of God. But still even the being an image bearer of God has benefits. You know you, you deserve protection and that's why it's Christians who are typically most concerned about the death of the unborn or the mistreatment, for example of the elderly. Like absolutely. The other thing I wanted to go back to a just a comment you made you were talking about as the culture moves left. And I just want to quickly address kind of what you're getting at with that. Again, because we've done we did a or one of the earliest podcasts that you and I did together was on Marxism, but Marxism, as a religion, not as a political system and and it's really hard to divorce the the two angles,.

Mean, I wasn't even joking to be honest that this is a subject that somebody could do a doctoral thesis on really. Big So To think that we're GONNA cover it in a in an hour is is just It's crazy but the. Janice Twenty six and then God said, let us make man in our image after our likeness.
