Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for Museum Lights

1. Comic story where Superman builds a telescope to see Krypton's destruction

This is the "Star Light, Star Bright..." storyline and it actually involves Neil deGrasse Tyson with the help of watching the destruction. The below image is the final one when they watch Krypton get destroyed.

Click image to enlarge.Whilst the story isn't that long it's too long to include all the images here but see the below synopsis from the DC Database.Despite the Justice League's occupation with fighting an alien army armed with extra-dimensional weapons with intent to dominate the world, Superman has somewhere to be. The others urge him to go, knowing it is important to him.To the surprise and amazement of the scientists at work at the Hayden Planetarium in the American Museum of Natural History, Superman arrives there, as agreed. Eagerly, one of them - Lisa - shows him a set of images they took from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, capturing his arrival on Mars and his fight with the Metaleks. As interested as Superman is, he has come for a different reason. With the arrival of Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, things can beginThrough massive coordination of efforts, they have routed data from telescopes all over the world to this planetarium, all in an attempt to help Superman in his effort to find any remaining glimpses of his home planet of Krypton. In this effort, they have already determined that the orbital period they need to best view the star Rao, once Krypton's sun. By combining all of the world's telescopes, the result is essentially one massive telescope - if only any of Earth's supercomputers could process all of that data in the way required. Fortunately, Superman's own brain is such a computer.Even though Krypton was destroyed, its distance of 27 light years from earth allows them to see that 27-year-old light from earth now; a ghost on the screen. Dr. Tyson explains that Superman, being nearly 27 years old himself, left the planet as a days old baby. As such, their view of Krypton in the present - the light from 27 years ago - has a great significance.They watch their screens as the planet Krypton is frozen in time at the moment of its destruction. While the planet itself has been gone for years, the story its light tells is that of the night that Krypton died, and as far as Superman is concerned, that night is tonight.

2. Did unit confusion lead to a house with enormous doors and windows in Ypres, Belgium?

I asked the people from the In Flanders Fields Museum, which is located right in Ypres. If anyone knows about the background of the story, it should be them. And sure enough, the nice person who responds to email inquiries at the museum shed some light on the question. Here's his response to my question about the truth of that statement:Yes, there is one story about the Slessorium, i.e. the bath-house that was built in the early 30s in the garden of Talbot House. The chaplain running the soldiers club sometimes used a very literary pen in writing down the house history. On the building of the Slessorium, he indeed reported that the flemish building company intermingled feet & meters but, as your own thoughts show, it is hard to believe that this was really the case. (In the worst scenario, it can be accepted that yards were taken for metres)He also gave me a link to a page that shows the house and what the chaplan actually wrote:SlessoriumHere's how the house looks like:The 'Slessorium', the bathhouse was named after Major Paul Slessor, who acted on behalf of Lord Wakefield of Hythe when in 1929 he purchased the house and on 27 October 1930 donated it to the Talbot House Association. Slessor was also to prove a key figure in the refurbishments of the house. He planned its funishings in every part. Until his death in 1949 Slessor maintained the house with unceasing care. The bathhouse built in 1931, "came out a good deal bigger than in the mind's eye. The secret may be divulged that the continental use of metres versus the British one of feet caused some confusion to a committee studying the architect's plan in London."I share the museum staff's judgement that the important part about metres and feet should not be taken literally. The guy was clearly just making fun. This is a rhetoric structure many people use when something didn't turn out to be the way they expected. And most certainly, the doors and windows are not enormous.It is a nice anecdote, for sure. But I think this one is busted.

3. Are the words Tartan and Rabshakeh Assyrian titles or proper names in Isaiah?

Maybe, the following details can be useful for LangLangC.The Chicago Assyrian Dictionary (CAD) is helpful to give some light on this subject.As regards Tartan, we read in it:

"TURTANU (tartanu, turtannu, tartannu) a high military official". This term was mentioned in texts by Mari, in Standard Babylonian, Neo-Assyrian, and Neo-Babylonian. "The word designates an Assyrian official and is only rarely applied to foreigners." (CAD XVIII-489-490)Other sources add:The Companion Bible (E. W. Bullinger, on Isa 20:1): Tartan. A title commander in-chief. (similarly, The Expositors Bible)Giovanni Pugliese Carratelli (Scritti sul mondo antico, 1976, Naples, p. 153): generalissimo.Gesenius (Thesaurus Philologicus, vol. III, p. 1521): praefecti militum Sargonis.Moreover, we may have - roughly a clue about the military rank of a tartan perusing the classical text Ancient Near Eastern Texts (1974 edition, edited by J. Pritchard):Later on, the position of the official within the hierarchy was decisive for the sequence, the highest official (tartanu) following the king immediately, while important palace officers ... and the governors of the foremost provinces took their turn in well-established order. (p. 274)I became very angry on account of these happenings, my soul was aflame. I called the turtan-official, the governors, and also their assistants and gave immediately the order. (p. 296, inscription by Assyrian King Ashurbanipal, now in the British Museum)We may conclude that - possibly - the title Tartan possibly - applied to an officer of high rank, probably second only to the king. As regards Rabshakeh, CAD wrote:

RAB-SIKKATUTU/RABI SIKKATI/RAB SIKKATI ... A high military officer. The term was mentioned in texts of Ur III (after, also in Old Babylonian texts). In early references (Ur III, Old Assyrian, and Old Babylonian) the rabi sikkati serves chiefly in military capacities. Later texts give no indication of his official functions. (CAD XIV:6 e XV:252-254)In this case, also, the source Ancient Near Eastern Texts (pp. 282, 296) gives some clues:I sent an officer of mine, the rabsaq, to Tyre. (inscription of Tiglath-Pileser III)I ordered to add to my former (battle-) forces (in Egypt) the rabsaq-officer. (inscription of Ashurbanipal)In conclusion, it seems to me these terms were clearly titles and not proper names, though Ive noted that people unaccustomed to a foreign language incline themselves to switch the title-function of a name into a proper name. It is an anthropological-linguistic constant.

4. Is the debt system basically like paying people to bricklay the walls of their own cage, and then charging them for the walls?

Debt is as old as time. The economy would freeze without debt. Governments, corporations and individuals all use debt to function and without it implementation of innovation would be impossible as would purchase any larger durable item outside of daily consumption items. The world without debt would be an even larger more secure economic prison.The economy would significantly slow down...Corporations could not build factories buy machines or even buy raw materials. ..People could not buy goods in particular large items such as appliances or cars or houses...Governments could not pay for national defense or wars nor could they guide the economy out of recessions...Without debt there would be no return to savings, workers could not build sufficient capital to retire and would thus need to work their entire lifetimes with no rest...Insurance companies would not receive return on their investments and thus would be hampered in their ability to provide insurance, they would just need to charge much higher rates...International shipping and other trade would be cut as goods could not leave port until fully paid for.You are asking about something close to economic apocalypse.Debt is not new, remember Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, well debt is even older than that, it is older than any currently practiced religion. Historically I would like to point out that government debt is nothing new. Here is a tablet from the Oxford museum recording a 4,000 year old government debt. When I talked with a legal historian, he brought out volumes full of other and even older examples. The history of money lending is well documented through the need to keep record of the original loan and the repayment of the loan. Sorry about the poor museum lighting and thus the lack of quality in this photo, but this tablet is more than 4,000 years old, and the museum has low lighting to preserve their old objects and prevent light bleaching. This tablet records the interest payment on a loan issued to the palace at Ur in Mesopotamia. Dispelling any thought the government debt was some sort of new phenomenon. Much older than any current religion.Clay tablet - Mesopotamia (Iran), 2046 BC - The text on this tablet records a payment of interest on a Loan to the palace at Ur. The palace could receive payments like these without needing to issue money. Weighed quantities of silver were used instead. In this case, the payment was for '8 shekels of silver'.

5. Looking for a publicly accessible online academic and/or peer-reviewed site for reading about Bibles with printing or translation errors. closed

You don't even need a scholarly article as proof that there can be errors in a bible. All you need is a spare Bible and a permanent marker. Change one letter in the text, and there is an error. There you have it. Physical proof that there can be errors in a Bible. No matter what proof you show that a Bible actually had a typo, one could just say that the mistake was made on purpose to disprove the inerrancy of the Bible. You could go to the museums that house one of the famous Bibles with an error. You could also go to the museum's websites and search the archives. But one could say the same of those Bibles, that the errors were made on purpose.One also doesn't need to look any further than their own Bible to see errors from original manuscripts. 1 Samuel 17 says that David killed Goliath, but 2 Samuel 21:19 says that Elhanan killed Goliath.Again there was war at Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaare-Oregim the Bethlehemite killed the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weavers beam.The New King James Version. (1982). (2 Sa 21:19). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.A footnote from the KJV (which also italicizes "the brother of") says that "the brother of" was supplied from 1 Chr. 20:5. LEB, which was made to be close to interlinear, omits the additional "the brother of" placing it in a footnote saying that he likely killed the brother of Goliath given the verses I've already shown. If you really wanted to, you could also go to the Hebrew manuscripts and see that they don't have "the brother of" (or else they also have it supplied in brackets) in their text. I have an info-graphic explaining how that error likely happened.

Moreover, if there were no errors in Bible anywhere along the line, then how could there be verses that are included in some English Bible verses and not in others? How could there be translations that say totally opposite things such as how the Jehovah's Witness Bibles say that Jesus is not God while translations such as KJV say that He is. They both can't be right. One or the other must contain some kind of error.Of course, these misprints don't mean that the Bible is untrustworthy. If one can believe that God prevents all typos when someone is writing scripture, then it shouldn't be hard to believe that God preserves the Scripture in light of misprints, textual errors, and mistranslated
