Bible accounts of teleportation (Star Trek fans..?)

    TELEPORTATION is a psychic power that is not very common. Yet, we found two examples in the Bible.

    But first let's try to understand the term. Teleportation is the power to make one's self disappear from one physical location and appear immediately in another without any physical means. It may also refer to the process by which the phenomenon takes place.

    The most famous example of teleportation in the history of paranormal phenomena is the Filipino guardia civil during the Spanish era, who suddenly disappeared from his post in the governor general's palace and appeared in Mexico City half way around the world. The bewildered soldier could not explain how he got there.

    When asked by Mexican authorities, he told them he was a guard at the Philippine governor general's palace and said the governor was assassinated. He was brought before church authorities who concluded he must be possessed by the devil and promptly put him in jail.

    Some weeks later, a galleon ship from the Philippines arrived with a Philippine official who identified the guardia civil and confirmed everything he said. The Filipino was released and sent home on a ship.

    First biblical case

    In the Bible, a case of teleportation can be found in Acts of the Apostles (8:38-40). The apostle Philip rode on the chariot of a eunuch. When they came upon a small body of water, the eunuch asked Philip to baptize him. Philip disappeared afterward and found himself in another place where he preached the good news.

    Here's the Biblical account:

    "He commanded the chariot to stop, and both of them, Philip and the eunuch, went down into the water, and Philip baptized him. When they came up out of the water, the spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; the eunuch saw him no more, and went his way rejoicing. But Philip found himself at Azotus, and as he was passing through the region, he proclaimed the good news to all the towns until he came to Caesaria."

    Second case

    Another example of teleportation in the Bible can be found in John (6:16-21). Jesus and his disciples were out at sea, three to five miles from the shore. When Jesus stepped into the boat, they found themselves immediately at the shore. Here's the King James Bible's description of the incident:

    "And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea, and entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them. And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew. So when they had rowed about five and 20 or 30 furlongs, they saw Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid. But He saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. Then they willingly received Him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went."

    A clue

    How teleportation takes place is still not clear. Science has absolutely no explanation. However, the modern science of Quantum Physics seems to hold a clue. Quantum physicists discovered that the smallest or quantum particle of matter could disappear in one orbit and immediately appear in another. If this can happen at the quantum level, why can it not happen at the macro level?

    The physicists also found that at the smallest level, thought or consciousness could affect behavior of matter.

    This helps explain what happened to my friend. Benny and Nora and their teenaged daughter lived in San Juan, Metro Manila. One evening the couple went to the movies while their daughter spent the night at a friend's. When they got home, Benny discovered to his horror that he forgot the key to the front door, and nobody could open it for them.

    Benny asked his wife to see if there was a partly open window at the back that they could use to get into the house. As his wife walked away, Benny stood in front of the main door angry at himself and wishing he could figure out a way to get inside.

    All of a sudden, he blacked out, losing consciousness momentarily. When he opened his eyes, he was inside the house. He opened the door just as his wife returned to report she could find no opening at the back.

    As he opened the door from the inside, she exclaimed, "How did you get in? Did you find the key?" When he told her what happened, she, of course, couldn't believe it. But both were relieved they did not have to destroy the lock of their rented house at such late hour.

    I have heard several other interesting stories of teleportation but do not have the space for them.

    As the Bible itself attests to the phenomenon's existence, I suppose there is no reason to doubt its reality.
  2. Quantum Physics at this time of the day???

    Take yourself out the back and have a word with yourself!!!!

    And yes, you do have too much time on your hands - want my job? :lol:
  3. I think I've had a similar experience to Benny.

    I've been in the pub, totally compus mentis, having a quiet pint or two - then magically blacked out and found myself asleep on the sofa several hours later, with no memory at all of how I got out of the pub or found my way home. Incidentally i have no memory at all of the events of the previous evening when they are recalled to me by friends!

    Do you think I have been subject to some form of strange paranormal phenonema, or could it be aliens who have teleported me and wiped my memory in the process???

    I'm a bit worried about all this, as its clearly worrying that someone is able to do this without my knowledge or permission - I think I need to line my burberry cap with Tin foil straight away!

  4. Various CQMS have, over the years, tried to re-enact the biblical miracle of the feeding of the five thousand by making scoff for a Company out of three loaves and five fishes.

    There is also a little known ability to communicate instantaneously over inter galactic distances. This does, however, require a King ( or Queen ) and the heir to the throne. As we all know, on the death of a monarch, the heir apparant becomes, at that exact moment, the king (or queen as appropriate. )

    It follows that, in dire need, simply killing the Monarch can be used to communicate instantly over infinite distance.

    I thank you.
  5. Its just the Beer Scooter.
  6. It's a particle called a Kingon. Similar description found in one of Terry Pratchets books.
  7. Biblical Account of Motor cycles-"And the roar of Moses's TRIUMPH was heard throughout ISRAEL

    Biblical Acount of Laxatives-"And Moses took the tablets and went up unto the mountain"

    Biblical Acount of Ice Cream-"WALLS OF JERICHO"
  8. The SQMS's at 3AAC in Soest had perfected this science many years ago.

    Whenever an audit was being carried out by the QM, the four SQMS's perfected the art of teleporting the same pieces of kit from one Q stores to the other before the QM got there.
