If it Looks Like a Galaxy…
The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground? Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD.(Obadiah 1:3-4) KJV
Astronomy is an induced rationalization of the premise that swirls of minute specks are galaxies, and the word “galaxy” has been defined to meet the requirements of THE NARRATIVE of mainstream science (SciPop).
Burn the Witch!
There’s a scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail when some villagers claim they’ve found a witch and they want to burn her.
That’s a Fair Cop
When asked how they know she’s a witch, they reply, because she looks like one. Astronomy, where words define unknown phenomena, is the same.
The Meaning of Words
You can call a speck of light a galaxy then use the definition to define its parameters without knowing the parameters.– Sir Isaac Newton, paraphrased
If it looks like a galaxy, it must be a galaxy. But how do we know what a galaxy looks like if we’ve never seen one? And what is galaxy but an arbitrary word used to refer to the definition of a phenomenon which is an inductive rationalization of an observation that has been designed to fit the popular science (SciPop) narrative? Sir Isaac Newton aptly described the situation in Principia Mathematica.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
And if the meaning of words is to be determined by their use, then by the names time, space, place and motion, their measures are properly to be understood; and the expression will be unusual, and purely mathematical, if the measured quantities themselves were meant. Upon which account, they do strain the sacred writing, who there interpret those words for the measured quantities.– Sir Isaac Newton, Principia Mathematica p. 81-82
The word galaxy as defined by Wikipedia:
A galaxy is a gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter. The word galaxy is derived from the Greek galaxias (γαλαξίας), literally “milky”, a reference to the Milky Way. Galaxies range in size from dwarfs with just a few hundred million (108) stars to giants with one hundred trillion (1014) stars, each orbiting its galaxy’s center of mass.– Galaxy, definition (Wikipedia)
The word galaxy is applied to swirls of specks of unknown luminous material (ULM). Defining a swirl of specks as a galaxy doesn’t tell us anything about the nature of the swirl of specks, but it expands the geometry of the universe. If a swirl of specks is called a galaxy, and a galaxy is what we have decided to believe it is, then they are of such enormous size that they have to be very far away, because, let’s face it, they still look like minute swirls of specks.
If the same swirl of specks is a spiraling cloud of crystalline firmament material (CFM) the size of a football field in the Kuiper Belt, it’s not nearly so far away. It’s shining brightly because it’s reflecting the light of the sun.
Applying an arbitrary word with an imputed meaning doesn’t define the phenomenon. As Newton says, if the measures are to properly understood, and all that we can measure is the light that we can see, then we don’t know what the swirls of specks are. However, if we have decided what we want to believe about the specks, and imputed this meaning as being the definition of a word, then the word tells us what the thing is.
By giving a word the meaning that we want to use it for, it may indeed strain the sacred writings but not because they’re wrong, because we have chosen a definition for our word which doesn’t align with them.
Galaxies, in terms of the scientific definition, don’t exist. The things that we call galaxies, because we want the sacred writings to be strained, are, according to the sacred writings, stars. Stars are ULM, which consists of predominantly CFM.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.(2 Thessalonians 2:11-12) KJV
Galileo was the one who first told us that stars are suns and suns are stars. This is the first step in the deception which we call astronomy. Newton went on to explain that the universe can consist of whatever we want it to if we allow words to define meanings which have been tailored to fit what we want to believe. Words are not used to refer to measured quantities, they are used how we want.
As a result of this the scientific universe is incomprehensibly vast. It creates problems too. If we have decided that a swirl of specks is a distant galaxy what happens when be build a bigger telescope and see another speck beyond it? The geometry now has to expand to accommodate it, and it becomes vastly bigger than the thing that we already said was vastly bigger than the other thing than it was vastly bigger than. This is the geometry of despair.
All we’re looking at is a speck, or a swirl of specks. However, it’s impossible to prove that a galaxy really is what the word defines it to be.
- Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
- believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
- confess your sin.
