If we’re supposed to accept the hypothesis with the fewest assumptions, lets compare how many assumptions have been made in the popular science paradigm (SciPop) vs. Matty’s Paradigm.
SciPop has a set of axioms which make up it’s theoretical foundation. They’re axioms because they’ve been accepted by peer review, not because they’re self-evident. They’re all theoretical, and they all require other assumptions.
The Axioms of Popular Science (SciPop)
|1||There’s a causal relationship between space-time and gravity||Isaiah 48:13|
|2||Earth orbits the sun||Ecclesiastes 1:5|
|3||Stars are distant suns and galaxies||1 Corinthians 15:40-41|
|4||Nuclear decay has always been constant||Deuteronomy 32:22|
|5||Humanity is a product of of biological evolution||Romans 5:12|
That’s 5 assumptions necessary to construct the paradigm but, technically speaking, each one is a vast construct of other assumptions as we’ll see in the next post. It’s a system of inductive, reductive circular reasoning where each premise (assumption) is used as evidence for itself. It’s a house of cards.
In contrast Matty’s Paradigm begins with one simple premise (assumption) which is a principle which has been deduced from axioms which are self-evidently true.

The Premise of Matty’s Paradigm
- God cannot lie.
Go ahead, Occam’s razor that.
