Guys, have you watched the news recently? If you haven't noticed yet... the world's a mess. A huge mess. Beheadings, school shootings on a rampant scale, fake bomb threats to get out of class, race wars, rioting, earthquakes and freak weather on a scale never before seen, etc. It's crazy out there. And coincidentally, all of these messes and problems we see everyday in the news were actually prophecied in advance by Jesus Christ and the Bible over 2000 years ago. It's just one of many proofs that the Bible is divine (coincidentally, no other religious books predict the future as specifically as the Bible does. The Qur'an made a few but they're vague and some turned out to be false. The Bible has a 100% accuracy track record when it comes to prophecy and future events). This all means that Christ is about to return, whether you believe it or not. Which is great if you're saved but it'll be hell on earth if you aren't. You don't want to be left here for the Tribulation period. Many prophecies will reach fulfillment during the Tribulation period, but we can see right now that all the end time signs foretold by Jesus and His prophets have emerged and are converging. Here are some of these signs: ·         Israel has become a burdensome stone and is at the center of the world’s attention. ·         Unrestrained anti-Semitism is forcing more and more Jews to return to Israel. ·         Israel is literally surrounded by enemies who want to destroy the tiny nation.  ·         The nations that will participate in the upcoming wars are aligned as prophesied in the Bible. ·         Everywhere you look ethnic group is against ethnic group. ·         Wars and rumors of wars abound on earth. ·         Russia has risen, has a hook in its jaw and is allied with Iran. ·         There are many false religious movements and false prophets. ·         The kings of the east are a threat. ·         The Euphrates River can be dried to a trickle due to the Ataturk Dam, which will prepare the way for the kings of the east. ·         There is a move towards global religion, global government, and global economy. ·         Global communication is in, increase in knowledge ·         Ability to travel to and fro in all the earth ·         Nuclear capability ·         Signs in the sky ·         Signs in the earth; creation groaning ·         Return of diseases previously eradicated and superbugs ·         The world is like it was in the days of Noah, corrupt and filled with wickedness. ·         Horrible terrorist acts are causing fear in the hearts of people worldwide. They're even beheading people here in the U.S.   When we combine current events with the fact that ISIS controls 1/3 of Syria, and many terrorist organizations have a base in its city of Damascus, it appears evident that we will soon see the fulfillment of Isaiah 17. We're going to see all prophecy be fulfilled soon! People, it's time to wake up! You can watch real-world news and see these prophecies coming to a head! The writing is on the wall. The Bible isn't a bunch of fairy stories. Archeology, geology, topography and history confirm these people, places, and events existed and happened! The Book of Acts alone has over 80+ historically verified facts. Acts was written by Luke, who is considered as one of the most credible historians who ever lived. And the fact that Christ's words are coming true means He's God! Only God knows and can prophecy the future thousands of years in advance. Given that prophecy is coming true 100%, did you know the Bible also states that Jesus will soon reign over the earth for 1000 years? We can rest assured that the earth is going to stick around. The dangerous weather we're all seeing is actually called birth pangs, not climate change. Turbulent, violent weather is a major prophetic indicator. The earth itself is screaming at us that Christ is about to return! That's why creation is in such an uproar. I'm telling you the truth: Krishna won't save you. allah's just an amalgamation of all of islam's different gods rolled into one. And being a good person won't save you (we've all sinned in some capacity in our lives- how many people have you cussed at and belittled by trolling online this week?). But guess what? God LOVES you! His love goes beyond anything you could understand. And He knows every jot of information there is to know about you, the good and the bad. And guess what else? He still loves you... even though you shop-lifted that one time. He loves you even though you get a sick thrill out of trolling people or watching pornography. He loves you even though you're struggling with heroin. And He doesn't want you to suffer under the idea that you did something that you believe is unforgivable. There's no soul too lost nor sin so deep that His love and mercy can't reach. He loves you even though you've slandered and hurt others. And He'll forgive anything. For instance, people have burned His Word. Yet, He's forgiven them! And He wants to forgive you and help you get out of your sinful lifestyle! It doesn't matter if you're black, white, asian, or indian. Ethnicity isn't a barrier to Him. You're His child! We're ALL God's children! And if you'll believe in Christ, accept Him as your Lord and Savior and repent of your sins, He'll save you! Simple as that. No works or merit-earning required. Do yourself the biggest favor of your life and take that offer. Why settle for mud pies here on earth when Jesus offers you an eternal feast? Don't be left behind to endure the Tribulation. Save yourselves now while the Ark doors are still open... because they're about to close. And you do not want to be left here when they finally do close. The judgement of God is a terrifying thing and if you think God is unfair for judging sinners, need I remind you that He's given humanity the opportunity to escape His coming judgement for over 2000 years if they would simply believe in Jesus and repent. God wouldn't be just if He didn't eventually put a stop to sin and evil. His holiness requires that judgment occurs. We're talking about the fate of your eternal future here... and eternity is an awful long time to be on the wrong side. Don't let satan drag you down into the lake of fire with him. That's his end game. He doesn't care about you. His attitude is, "If I'm going down, you maggots are going down with me!" He wants to destroy you and as many others as possible. What else can explain the evil you see increasing everywhere on a daily basis? Satan knows his time is short and he wants to cause as much damage and ensnare as many souls as possible- yours included. Don't let that monster win your soul! Don't give him the last laugh by your disregarding all of this thinking it's nonsense. He'd love nothing more than for you to convince yourself that all of this is lunacy... because then your soul is his. If you doubt all this, that's fair. But the writing is on the wall every day in the news. It's getting harder and harder to deny if you'll just wake up and be honest with yourself. If you have doubts but deep down you want to be saved, I encourage you to seek out the following authors. Ravi Zacharias is great if you have questions about Jesus but you're sensitive to issues of race and foreign ethnicity. William Lane Craig and Norman L. Geisler are great if you're an atheist or agnostic who believes that science is the end-all, be-all answer to everything. They'll give you answers and evidence to really chew on if you'll be open and honest to what they have to say. And Lee Strobel is great for those of you who have a cursory interest into whether everything about Jesus and the Bible is true or not. For more readily available answers, the "One Minute Apologist" here on youtube is great for quick answers to tough questions about God. If you're still in doubt about all of this though, take this to heart: the Bible says Damascus (that's in Syria) will be DESTROYED. A ruinous heap. Test God's word against Him! Read Isaiah 17. If Damascus never falls, then the Bible is false. But when Damascus does soon fall... then you'll know God and His Word is no lie. Besides that, how can an all-knowing, all-seeing, inerrant God get anything wrong anyway? If He says Jesus is the only way to heaven, then Jesus really is the only way. If there were any other way to heaven, even ONE alternate way, then why did Christ have to die? If there's no hell to protect us all from then His death was pointless. That's why we spread the Gospel: to tell you that there's a way to save yourself. It's a rescue mission! And it's completely free if you'll simply accept Christ's offer! In any other faith you have to work to secure your salvation. The Bible says our works are as dirty rags. None of us could ever produce enough righteous acts to earn our way to heaven. That's why Christ's offer is so great: all you have to do is accept it and He'll cover you with His righteousness! So, you can either harden your heart and refuse His rescue... or better yet, you can humbly admit that you're a sinner, turn and repent of your sinful lifestyle and believe in Jesus and ask Him to save you. He'd be delighted to. But there's not much time left. Save yourself while you still can. Also... support Israel! Israel is facing disgusting anti-semitism. The entire world seems to be pressuring them to give up God's land (God declares it HIS land in the Bible) to their mortal enemies. And the fact that the entire world is pressuring a sovereign country to give up what little land they have to placate their mortal enemies, is completely insane! Who do the leaders in the United Nations think they are, anyway? NO other nation on this earth would put up with such atrocious and flagrant interference in their business! Why should Israel? The fact that this is happening to Israel, the Apple of God’s eye, which was foretold would happen in scripture, is even more proof that the Bible is 100% accurate.

Historic Accuracy. Edison, at the time this scene is meant to take place, was still being given credit for nearly every technological advancement that we should have been thanking Tesla for. Doc Brown can't be held responsible for not knowing how important Tesla actually was, considering the time period in which this scene takes place and how the media from the past decade (then) spun the stories, which the education system blindly followed.

+Nozyspy Well, "gee" really is a word in the Engish language, that's pronounced with the "J" sound.  I never noticed it though until I was in a class with another kid whose name was spelled "Guy", but pronounced "gee" where the G was pronounced like the "G" in "Guy", but the "uy" was pronounced like the e's in "Jee".  I had to make him a phonetic name tag this one time when a reporter had to go down a line of kids and pronounce all their names on the fly on live television, and I had no way to write his phonetically, so of course the reporter got his name totally wrong when he got to him lol.  Everyone else's could be written phonetically though so there were no other screw-ups.  :)

Why does Doc Brown pronounce it as "jig" instead of "gig"?
Report spam or abuse
+MikeDunn Because giga- wasnt a well known prefix at the time. PC's has like 32 kilobytes of storage back then, tiny tiny amounts. Someone writing the story looks up prefixes for HUGE numbers, finds giga- and decides on it. Fast forward to the set, and I imagine no one on set knew the correct pronunciation. Only a serious mathematician would've been aware of it back then. Today, giga- is thoroughly common and everyone knows how to pronounce it.

A Gigawatt is 1 billion watts of electricity. So he needed 1,210,000,000 watts.

+Ryan Noble What I always found amusing is that presumably no one on the film set new the prefix "giga" should not be pronounced like "jigga". I imagine because in the 1980's computing had not come anywhere close to those kinds of numbers (gigabyte) and the prefix was not in common use unless you were perhaps a mathematician. "1.21 jiggawatts" was a funny think to say in the '80's as a kid, until you came to the realization later in life that it shouln't have been jiggawatts at all.
