"Making the word of God of none effect"

The Sumida River, Tokyo

*** *** *** ***

Mar 7:11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
Mar 7:12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
Mar 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
Mar 7:14 And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:

Mat 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
Mat 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Mat 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Mat 7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

"that creepeth upon the earth" - Mt. Fuji Radar

The Tokyo Tower (333 meters high)

Mt. Fuji Radar

A young man in his early 20s reached the summit of Mt. Fuji riding on bulldozers 49 years ago.

His uncle ran a construction company in charge of installing a weather radar in a meteorological observatory built at the top of the highest mountain in Japan (3,376 metes).

So, the young man was allowed to get on a bulldozer carrying material for the construction.   It was a big bulldozer when they started from the foot of Mt. Fuji.  But at some point on the ridge, they changed it to a smaller bulldozer.  The slope became so acute that the young man found that a half of the body of the special vehicle was hanging from a narrow path to a deep and sharp precipice.  He could barely enjoy the mountain view.

It took seven hours for them to reach a construction site on the mountain peak.  The young man payed homage at a shrine built there (Mt. Fuji is a holy mountain for shintoism) and looked on the meteorological observatory.  He also checked remaining snow.

In descending Mt. Fuji, he used his feet, almost running down the steep ramp.  In 90 minutes, he reached a gentle slope.  But he got altitude illness to be down in a party of his uncle's company.

The radar on the top of Mt. Fuji had been used till 1999.  It was the weather radar installed at the highest altitude in the world when it was set.  In 2000, it was registered in the list of IEEE Milestones which record break-through events in the electric and electronic fields.
