Matty’s Paradox

For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night.

(Psalms 90:4) ESV

But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

(2 Peter 3:8) ESV

The universe may be 13.8 billion years old while the Earth is 6,000 or so years old SIMULTANEOUSLY. The ramifications of gravitational time dilation (GTD) are known as Matty’s Paradox.

Put another way, Earth can be 6,000 years old and the remote regions of the cosmos can be a minimum of 2.19 billion years old at the same time. Psalms 90:4 gives us the same sentiment as the one from 2 Peter. Something remarkable happens when we take these passages at face value and do some simple math in order to understand the ramifications of GTD.

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

Matty’s Razor

Matty’s Paradox

  • IF 1,000 years has passed for each day on Earth since the 2nd day,
    • AND the Earth is about 6,000 years old.
  • THEN a minimum of 2.19 billion years has passed at the radial distance of the firmament (the remote regions of the cosmos) in the same period of time.

Incidentally, the remote regions of the fixed stars is a phrase used by Sir Isaac Newton when he mentions, in passing, the possibility that there is a body, the firmament, at rest beyond the stars. It, he casually speculates, may be what holds the stars in position. You didn’t know that Newton speculated about the firmament, did you? We’ll take part of Newton’s phrase as one of our terms: the remote regions of the cosmos.

The remote regions of the fixed stars. – Sir Isaac Newton

There’s some nuance here. The passage of time as we observe it on the surface of Earth, that a day is 24 hours, began on the second day. Since time passes at a rate proportional to the square of the distance from the singularity at the center of the Earth, there’s no way to measure time before it was established (on the second day). This means that the first day, or first cycle from dark to light to dark, was of indeterminate length. It’s still a day, as defined by the light cycle, but we don’t know how long it was.

This is how we can accommodate a time span of 13.8 billion years if it’s really necessary, considering that that’s an induced narrative designed to accommodate the time scale required for godless existence and biological evolution in the popular science paradigm (SciPop). Is there any actual science which indicates that the material the universe is made of has to be that old?

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

Years in Heaven2.19E+9
– The minimum age of the remote regions of the cosmos.

Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so.

– Ford Prefect, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

The problem is that this doesn’t take into account the time dilation factor between the surface of the Earth and the center, something which we have to factor in if we’re going to calculate a distance to the firmament.

Time Dilation Squared

  • At the center of the Earth time isn’t passing.
  • One day In sheol, at a radius of about 4,100 km, is equivalent to:
  • 1,000 years on Earth’s surface, 6371 km.
    • 1,000 years is 365,000 days.
  • One day on Earth is 1,000 years in heaven,
    • the passage of time in heaven (the remote regions of the cosmos) is 365,0002
    • 133,225,000,000 years (1.33E+11 yrs)

This means that the age of the universe is somewhere between 2.19 and 133.2 billion light years away. Plenty of space to accommodate anything that SciPop can come up with.
