#8 - Get Computing! - C

This blockbuster principle is a thrill to share with others, as it comes from the Bible. What makes it even juicier is that it’s a computing principle found in the OLD TESTAMENT. More than that, it involves what many believe to be boring rules for the Jews.
Searching Boolean Math Lev 11 old testament dietary rules for Jews

Many powerful principles in scripture are located in probably the most shunned part of scripture – Old Testament directives about the Israelite menu.

Our principles so far have covered Preparation, Testimony, about databases and leftovers.
Principle #4 – Searching (for food)
One of my favorite fast food places often sends me and my food to my table with the receipt that says something like this: 
3 Piece Fish Dinner 
Medium Soft Drink
+ Baked Potato
+ Bread Stick
– French Fries
– Hush Puppies

Note: Hush Puppies are small ball-shaped spiced breading
The test question is “what was on my tray?”

You can also substitute the +’s for “and”; and the –‘s for “not”.
In the 1800’s Geo. Boole ‘invented’ written logic “so called Boolean Logic” – or so he thought.
Turn to some of that shunned scripture to find my favorite computing principle in scripture. Turn to Leviticus 11:2.

Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth. Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.

The following VERSES give contrasting examples to further explain this important rule. Then comes what fish, birds etc are on the menu.
The following CHAPTERS teach grouping principles than technology will never approach.
We use Boolean searches at the library and on Google and other search engines..
POWER PRINCIPLE of this reference
Whether it’s lessons in parables or computing principles in shunned ‘shadow’ scripture, there is more of God’s provision that you could have imagined, in places you still need to look.

Is there a child or adult in your sight, missing a shoelace or shiney shoes? Maybe just below the surface is a heart begging God for someone like you to care… just as they are.
