The Stars Will Fall to Earth
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.(Genesis 1:16) KJV
It’s ironic that April 1st is April Fools’ Day and that today we’ll begin making the case that the cosmos is Geocentrospheric, but this isn’t a joke. We’re going use the Bible to understand empirical observations.
This means we have to understand what empirical means.
Empirical is based on, concerned with, or verifiable by observation or experience rather than theory or pure logic. Derived from or guided by experience or experiment.– Empirical, definition (Dictionary)
We observe the sun rise and set. We observe the stars arc across the sky. The visible universe is observed to orbit the earth every day. This is empirical. The Bible describes a cosmological system which is in harmony with what we can see with our eyes.
Popular science (SciPop) has a rationalization of the cosmos which is completely different to the Bible. It’s Heliocentric. It’s not observed, not at anytime, ever. It’s theoretical. For this reason we’ll look at primary sources of evidence to find out what happened in SciPop to cause it to be so wrong. We’ll look at the work of Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, Einstein, Hubble, Hoyle and Hawking to find out why their theoretical explanation of the cosmos doesn’t match empirical observations.
This means that we have to know what the Bible says and be honest about it. A major consideration in a Biblical cosmology is to accommodate the fulfillment of prophecy. This is critical in understanding passages of scripture which are specific references to the stars falling from heaven.
And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.(Isaiah 34:4) KJV
Isaiah compares falling of the stars to the falling of leaves, which gently waft their way down to the ground, or ripe figs that were just waiting to drop, to hit the Earth with a splat. Isaiah doesn’t explicitly state that the stars are going to fall to the Earth, but that’s the implication given the analogy of leaves and figs.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:(Matthew 24:29) KJV
And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.(Mark 13:25) KJV
In these passages Jesus is talking with the disciples about future events. He’s not specific about where the stars will fall to, but the mindset of the time was that the Earth was below and the heavens were above, so where would they fall BUT to the Earth? It’s obvious. Isaiah and Jesus were both referring to plagues of the tribulation. The prophecy of this event from Revelation is more specific and it makes it clear that when the stars fall, they will fall to the Earth. Once again this has the analogy of ripe figs, ready to fall at the slightest breeze.
And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.(Revelation 6:13) KJV
O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so-called:(1 Timothy 6:20) KJV
SciPop is an increasingly flimsy validation of the Star Trek universe which has a prevailing narrative best summed up in the quote below:
Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.– Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think that [iPhones] are a pretty neat idea.
That’s SciPop. What you call science. SciPop would have us believe that the earth is a minute speck in orbit around a minute speck far out in a spiral arm of a nondescript galaxy, and there are billions of other galaxies all larger and more spectacular than ours. In SciPop it’s mathematically impossible for the stars to fall to earth. The big problem is that the SciPop cosmological model is mathematically impossible, 80-85% of the mass of the universe is “missing”, precisely because it’s trying to make the prophecy about stars falling to earth look impossible. It’s an exercise in circular reasoning.
The express purpose of astronomy is to make it seem as if the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy is ridiculous. Unfortunately this means that astronomy has had to become ridiculous. Who are you to believe? And why would you take our word for it?
- IF God cannot lie,
- THEN the Bible is true,
- THEREFORE if the Bible says that the stars will fall to the earth,
- BUT SciPop says that this is impossible,
- THEN SciPop is wrong.
This isn’t a joke.
