March 31

Black Sky

Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

(Psalms 97:2) KJV

In order for God to proceed on the fourth day: creating the sun moon and stars; the sky had to be made black. However, the firmament couldn’t lose its brightness, that would defeat the purpose of it.

The firmament’s part of the broad narrative of separating light from darkness, good from evil. Something had to happen so that the firmament wouldn’t be visible from below but above it would continue to be a realm of brilliant light.

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

(Daniel 12:3) KJV

God hid himself from view by clothing the inner surface of the firmament in blackness.

I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering.

(Isaiah 50:3) KJV

This is why darkness came upon the Earth at the end of the third day but heaven was still full of light. However, one passage of scripture isn’t enough to develop a doctrine. This interpretation must be consistent with the broad narrative of scripture. The way that we develop doctrines is that there should be one place that states an idea explicitly, and numerous other passages which develop it and weave it into the broad narrative.

We’ve deduced a physical process which relates the formation of the sun and the heats that it released to the way in which Bowen’s reaction series can be applied to a stratified formation of crystalline compounds. It gives us a cause for the phenomenon, it’s consistent with the broad narrative of scripture, and it obeys all physical laws. It’s Hypothesis 31.

Predictive Testable Hypothesis 31

  • IF the creation of gravity on the 2nd day caused 2 main formations of sediment to be deposited:
    1. Concentric layers accumulated around a singularity forming a spherical earth,
      • These deposits include, among other things, the Banded Iron Formations.
    2. Approximately 1,736,441 light years from the singularity a series of layers crystallized to form the firmament, also known as the body of heaven:
      • The upper part of the series is described in Revelation 21,
      • The lower part of the series broke apart to become the stars.
  • THEN minerals in the series will show evidence of a transition in several properties.

Throughout April we will pick our way through the popular science (SciPop) train wreck called astronomy and see why it tells a story about our universe which is completely different to what the Bible says. We’ll look at the data SciPop uses and how SciPop uses it. We’ll find that empirical observations and experimental data support the cosmological model of the Bible.
