Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!(Isaiah 5:20) NKJV
All current cosmological models show that somewhere between %80-85 of the mass of the universe is missing. Based on our understanding of particle physics we can move this number up to %90. Where is it?
The best that popular science (SciPop) was able to come up with until recently was black holes. The problem was that there would need to be so many of them that they would have to be evenly distributed everywhere, and no one had ever seen one. This caused SciPop to have to invent dark matter. Dark matter can’t be detected but SciPop figures that it has to be there because the universe isn’t collapsing. This is where we’re at.
Repeated attempts to detect dark matter have failed, yet SciPop cosmological models require that it exists. Believing in something that can’t be seen is the practical application of faith. Our working definition of faith
The Practical Application of Faith
Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.– Faith, definition
Clearly the SciPop paradigm requires faith.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,(Hebrews 11:1) KJV
the evidence of things not seen.
Incidentally, supposed photographs of black holes are circumstantial evidence. They may be pictures of black things in space, but the assumption of heliocentricity causes them to be imbued with distance and mass values which are vastly exaggerated.
If our Axioms are true and if our first Principle is correct, then the Bible must account for this missing mass in such a way as to explain the current stable state of the universe. Guess what? It does. This is how you can tell if your favorite Bible version has prioritized technical accuracy or theological expediency. Look at Genesis 1:6. If your Bible has the word firmament then it emphasizes technical accuracy. The word firmament has been removed from the vast majority of Bibles. That’s too bad because it just happens to be the missing 90% of the mass of the universe.
