But there was a man named Simon, who had previously practiced magic in the city and amazed the people of Samaria, saying that he himself was somebody great. They all paid attention to him, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the power of God that is called Great.” And they paid attention to him because for a long time he had amazed them with his magic.(Acts 8:9-11) ESV
Our comic super heroines Sophia Proton and her trusty sidekick Kat Ion have found their Arch-villain: Neinstein. He’s probably somewhere between Sherlock Holmes’ Moriarty and Friedrich Nietzsche.
Newton’s law of universal gravitation allows the calculation of the mass of the Earth and its average density. The usual suspects (peer review) use this to say that hell isn’t at the center of the Earth. These calculations make the internal structure of the Earth, as described in the Bible by none other than Jesus himself, impossible.
A particle attracts every other particle in the universe using a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.
This is a general physical law derived from empirical observations by what Isaac Newton called induction.– Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation
Einstein’s theory of relativity is used as a stamp of approval as if to say that the vastly superior modern mind has validated the more antiquated but also vastly superior mind. Relativity is designed to make everyone who isn’t a theoretical physicist feel somewhat inferior, but that’s just smoke-and-mirrors because the physicists don’t understand it either. That’s what happens when you use induction to validate your imagination.
These two combine to give us what you may find referred to as Newton/Einstein gravitation. It’s one of the foundations of popular science (SciPop). What’s a poor Christian to do? Believe Jesus? or believe Newton and Einstein? Neinstein. Tell me that’s not the Holy Spirit having a little fun.
The weakness of this model is that every particle of the Earth is contributing to its gravitational field but measurements and calculations of gravity and gravitational time dilation, for the purpose of planning space flights and calibrating GPS satellites, depend on assuming that all of Earth’s mass is concentrated in it’s center. This means that empirical observation of the behavior of gravity on one hand, and the SciPop theory of the cause of gravity (SciPop) on the other, are incongruent. The math being used to plan space flights is obviously accurate, it’s simply not reflected in the theory of how gravity works.
Clearly theories don’t have any affect on the world around them. That’s because they’re imaginary. The effect isn’t the cause.
