O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge—(1 Timothy 6:20) NKJV
We like wry humor here at Matty’s Paradigm. A double-dose of irony with a side of snark. Here’s the definition of what you call Astronomy after it’s been filtered through the lens of Biblical cosmology.
- The body of knowledge generated by applying the Hawking Effect to the Star Trek Episodes. Has been expanded to include most space-based SciFi (except Babylon 5).
- Synonymous with Astrology, where observations of the stars are used to predict fortunes, Astronomy is used to deny the possibility of the fulfillment of Biblical prophesy.
- A minor deity in the Atheist pantheon.
The Hawking effect is the current form of the scientific method in use in popular science (SciPop). It’s not data-driven, it’s an inductive rationalization of data to conform to a narrative. In this case the narrative is Star Trek.
The Scientific Method Post Hawking
- If it’s plausible it’s possible.
- If it’s possible it happened.
- It has to have happened because we exist.
- The chances of us existing are so remotely tiny that our existence proves our hypothesis (whatever it is).
Atheist science trolls (ASTs) do a lot of special pleading to a pantheon of Ruling, Major and minor deities.
When we combine excessive amounts of meaningless data with our narrative and the Hawking effect we arrive at a new definition of scientific knowledge which, by a totally staggering coincidence, is exactly what Paul predicted in this first letter to Timothy.
Scientific knowledge: anecdotal evidence combined with probability means it’s a reasonable assumption.– Scientific knowledge, a definition for the post-Hawking popular science (SciPop) Trekkie generation
As a result, Astronomy is now merely a vehicle for propaganda.
Modern Astronomy is a pseudoscientific validation of the Star Trek universe for the purpose of making you think that Biblical prophecy about stars falling to Earth is ludicrous. We want you to sleep at night and not worry. You’re welcome!– Peer Review
