Target Selective Hail Stones

And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.

(Joshua 10:11) KJV

Stones fell out of heaven which killed only the Canaanites, but none of the Israelites. This is rather tricky to account for, at least, if you believe the Bible within the popular science paradigm (SciPop).

Velikovsky, bless his heart, made an effort. He was one of the last who bothered. Nowadays the SciPop crowd can simply deny that it happened, say the Bible is unreliable, it’s a metaphor for some spiritual truth that we haven’t figured out, the usual fluff. Christianity doesn’t care. They are just as happy to dismiss it. The truth is, most Christians don’t even know that’s in the Bible.

he sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear.

(Habakkuk 3:11 ) KJV

Habakkuk refers to this event in which, in Velikovsky’s rationalization, the hail stones are left over from an earlier time during the plagues of the Exodus when Venus was a comet and Earth passed through its tail.

Supposedly Venus is making a return visit as its orbit settles down and it becomes the planet that we observe today. This is not, however, what the Bible says. The Bible says, in a couple of different ways, that the sun and moon stopped moving. So far we have considered two possible options for how to handle passages like these:

  1. deny that the event happened, it’s just a metaphor for something spiritual, or
  2. explain the observation in a theoretical way that makes it something other than what the Bible says.

How about a third option? How about the sun and moon actually stopped moving, just like the Bible says, and this really doesn’t present any problem at all because we’re in a Geocentrospheric system and the sun and moon were orbiting the Earth anyway?

Heliocentric (sun worship) or Geocentrospheric?

  • IF you were on the Sun you’d be observing heliocentricity,
  • SINCE you’re not, you’re on the Earth, you’re observing Geocentrosphericity.
