## Matty’s Constant

The Lord provides the sun for light by day,
the moon and the stars to shine at night.
He stirs up the sea and makes it roar;
his name is the Lord Almighty.
He promises that as long as the natural order lasts,
so long will Israel be a nation.
If one day the sky could be measured
and the foundations of the earth explored,
only then would he reject the people of Israel
because of all they have done.
The Lord has spoken.

(Jeremiah 31:35-37) Good News Translation

We can’t prove heliocentricity, nor do we have an absolute value for the mass of the Earth. Despite this we have a working model of our solar system so accurate that it can land a space vehicle on a comet.

Most people believe that the model works because it’s an accurate representation of our supposedly heliocentric system. What they don’t realize is that the model is accurate regardless of the frame of reference of the observer. Since there are no observers on the sun, heliocentrism is irrelevant.

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

Matty’s Razor

The mass of the planetary bodies, including the sun, has never been measured. The value we have for the mass of the Sun is derived from the assumptions that we make.

We don’t know the absolute values for the mass of planetary bodies because they’re derived using a flawed theory of gravity. Regardless, we observe that the cosmos functions normally and our model is predictive. We know the relative proportions of the planetary bodies based on observations, from the Earth, of the motion of planetary bodies and space vehicles. The numbers which we use in calculations are derived from our observations of a Geocentrospheric system. The values are calculations which involve a nested series of assumptions:

#### Assumptions necessary to Calculate the Mass of Planetary Bodies

1. The cause of the gravitational constant, G,
2. Earth’s mass is the cause of acceleration due to gravity, g,
3. Earth has an average density (no open space),
4. Heliocentricity.

Some would say that since we know the absolute value for the mass of the space vehicle, and this relates to the mass of the comet so accurately that we can make the predictions necessary to plan a space flight, that therefore we know the absolute mass of the comet. Incidentally, this is what mathematical constants are for: to relate our unknown but relative values of planetary bodies back to the absolute values of the mass of space vehicles. If you even wondered what Einstein’s cosmological constant is for, this is it. It’s needed because we don’t know any absolute values.

The value we have for the mass of the Earth isn’t the mass of the Earth, it’s a number which we use for convenience. From it we derive the mass of the Sun and the other planetary bodies. This requires another assumption:

1. We observe a proportional relationship between mass and gravity,
• this isn’t the cause of gravity, it’s circumstantial evidence,
• however, we assume that mass causes gravity,
• this gives us the gravitational constant, G, as measured by the Cavendish experiment.
2. We measure the strength of Earth’s gravitational field with a ball drop,
• this gives us a value for acceleration due to gravity, g,
• we assume that the mass of earth is the cause of g.
3. We calculate the radius of Earth from which we can derive its volume,
• we assume that the Earth has an average density (no open space).
4. The mass of the Sun is related to the mass of the Earth using,
• Kepler’s 3rd law of planetary motion and
• Newton’s universal law of gravitation,
• the value of 1.9E+30 kg,
• (4.) requires the assumption of heliocentricity.
• The mass of all other planetary bodies are derived from the mass of the Sun.

Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.

## Relative Motion

The wind blows south, the wind blows north—round and round and back again.

(Ecclesiastes 1:6) Good News Translation

The other piece of the puzzle which is taken for granted is the role of relative motion. Here is a quote from Nobel Prize winning astrophysicist Fred Hoyle.

“We know that the difference between a heliocentric theory and a geocentric theory is one of relative motion only, and that such a difference has no physical significance.”

— Sir Fred Hoyle in Astronomy and Cosmology, 1975, p. 416.

What Fred didn’t acknowledge is that there’s a difference between heliocentric and Geocentrospheric models which is physical: the values for the planetary masses. In Matty’s Paradigm these values have the same relative proportion to each other, but they’re smaller by a factor of 9.87^-12. This is Matty’s Constant.

The reason for creation is the manifestation of sentient life with free will.

## Astrologers and Stargazers

You are powerless in spite of the advice you get.
Let your astrologers come forward and save you—
those people who study the stars,
who map out the zones of the heavens
and tell you from month to month
what is going to happen to you.

They will be like bits of straw,
and a fire will burn them up!
They will not even be able to save themselves—

(Isaiah 47:13-14) KJV

By taking God at His Word, by understanding the contrived nature of the mainstream science model of the universe (SciPop), and by applying our knowledge of the character and nature of God, we can shrink the universe to fit inside the crystalline firmament and we haven’t broken any of the laws of Physics. In fact, we have accounted for them in a way which is more harmonious and less contrived than in SciPop. God established the conditions which allowed us to derive the laws, they have to be accurate. However, the laws don’t define the cosmos, they’re designed to summarize and express our observations of it.

Maybe you doubt us. Even for Christians what we’re saying is hard to assimilate. So let’s ask this: Has God, or will God, cast off the seed of Israel? If God is telling the truth, hell is expanding and it’s the cause of global warming. Are you ready to place your eternal outcome in the hands of astronomers and stargazers? You ought to know that the Bible has nothing good to say about stargazers.

#### Salvation

1. Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
• believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
