Bill Nye, ‘the Science Guy’ (a course about vaccines)

Bill Nye, ‘the Science Guy’ taught a course for the same company I teach for, Varsity Tutors! I get so excited when I find celebrities who’ve taught a course for the same company I do. Here he teaches about vaccines and why we need them!

Do you know what the most dangerous animal in the world is? A mosquito. That’s right, it’s not a lion or a shark as one may think, it’s a tiny mosquito. It’s one of the main reasons there is a deadly disease called malaria, in countries mostly near the equator where it’s warm all the time.

The germs or bacteria that get you sick or this virus, called the Covid 19 pandemic, or the parasites that try to live off you, can be fought by our own immune systems. The healthier you are, the better, of course, but believe it or not we are not too much different from animals. We are more like them then you realize. It’s why we’re reaching for ‘herd immunity.’ Viruses can spread like wildfire, and measles, the chicken pox, malaria, or Covid 19 are different from just a regular cold or fever.

Our immune systems are not ready for them! So what the vaccine does is train your immune system so that when your cells (white blood cells) come up against the germ, they capture it and destroy it! They break it up into molecules and devour it. I am going to attach the video so you can see for yourself the benefit, history and importance of vaccines. I hope you enjoy it and find it educational.

COVID-19 outbreak, God, and you!😇💙🌏

In a country that is now the epicenter for the Corona Virus, we must be wondering how we got here. Some like to blame others. Either way, the numbers are growing, and when you wake up tomorrow, they will be larger, in a few days, they may even double! It is a scary time to be a citizen. It is a scary time to be on earth!

But here is some real-talk. God never promised us an easy life, or one without trials. He did promise he would never leave or forsake us, with him, we can get through this. We can smile in the midst of pain, we can hold our head up in the hour of uncertainty, we can laugh, again, and we can praise him all the while during these dire moments.

The love of God is the peace that surpasses all understanding. Many believe that if there is a God he would not allow us to suffer; however, suffering must exist. A suffering world does not mean that God doesn’t. It is the nature of human kind since the first sin of Adam that caused even death. However, Jesus is the second Adam, he is the life-giving one!

I suggest you give your life to him. I am not standing in judgement or claiming that I don’t mess up! I am praying to stay on a ‘faith-path,’ and this path of faith does require me to be patient. I am trying to stay on a ‘trusting God path,’ also, because that is all I can do right now. There are some things that are just out of our control.

God does give us free will, though, and the ability to make decisions. He doesn’t always know the outcome, but he does know all the possibilities of what can happen. He is the greatest chess player! He knows all the ways something can turn out. He is praying for us, but does not imposes his will. If he did, he would not be God, after all, because he promised us free will.

He stands and knocks at the door. We have to open it. We have to adhere to him. We have to ask him to lead us and guide us. We have to imagine his presence is there, because it is. This is a culture that teaches us to not use our imagination, and to only depend on our five senses, but if we continue to do so, we are rejecting God. We can ONLY see him through our imagination!

Scientists have even proven, our imagination is not a vehicle we can choose to use while on this planet, it is the vehicle through which we think! What are you imagining right now? Are you imagining love, a bright future, peace for all man-kind? What are you imagining? Are you letting the fear of the world take common place? Imagine a God who loves you so much that he died to redeem your soul!

Whenever, I have tried to depend on my self or on others, I have failed every time. God sits, he waits, he listens. He is a loving father. We can have a direct connection, and what is more beautiful than that? It starts in your intuition. Are my words resonating, yet? If they are, take my advice. No happiness on earth can compare to what the Lord can give you.

No big house, no nice car, no amount of children, nor wealth, nothing can compare to how much God loves you and to what he has prepared. Mansions in heaven! Heaven is a wondrous place that you cannot even fathom. Earth is where moth and rust destroy, and we have pesticides here. But set your mind on things above; not on earthy things, for we are only here for a time.doc with wings

I learned at a young age how man-kind can save your life through wisdom and knowledge. I was in a catastrophic accident that most would never live through, but God saved me through doctors and through medicine. In a culture where we are taught that individualism is important, we need each other now more than ever. I was only sixteen, and those doctors did everything! The odds were against me, but I called out to him in my dark hours.

Things can turn for the better now so long as we listen to our leaders and scientists. God whispers the secrets of the earth within their hearts. We have to respect one another. If we don’t it is not doing us any good right now. I have been in a hospital bed, on a ventilator, unable to eat solid food and fighting for my life. It is the miracle of medicine that healed me, and medicine is a miracle I will never take for granted.

Neither should you. We are all called to this hour. This is about more than politics, this is about more than the left or the right. This is about more than religion. This is about you and God! Make the right decisions!
