The Format of Principia Mattymatica

October 4

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

(Psalms 119:160) KJV

We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) will formally destroy the theoretical foundation of popular science (SciPop). We used to get vehement opposition but for now the world is watching in stunned silence.

A lot of opposition comes from people who self-identify as Christians in science. It turns out that a lot of Christians are terrified at the prospect of the Bible being true. Who knew? One of their concerns is that we’re making very controversial statements based upon the following principle:

Principle I Deduction 1

  • IF God can’t lie,
  • THEN the Bible is true.

We were asked to further elaborate on the logical connection between God can’t lie and the Bible is true by a doubtful Christian: a Christian who doesn’t want the Bible to be true. You can waste a lot of time on stuff like this. We made an attempt to conform to worldly expectations with the post thou shalt keep them. The simplest way to answer this is:

Principle I Deduction 2

  • IF God can’t lie,
    • AND he states plainly that His Word is true,
    • AND that His Word is preserved for all generations,
    • AND if His Word is the Bible,
  • THEN the Bible is true.

And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.”

(Mark 9:23) ESV

We used to get asked the question: how do you know that the Bible is the word of God? It’s a simple choice that you make. You decide to believe it. It’s a next step after salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior. We choose to believe the Bible out of gratitude to God for our life and to Jesus Christ for our salvation. Destroying SciPop isn’t a test we have to pass, it’s a reward of having faith. Everything is possible if you can believe.


God can’t lie and the Bible is true” is is our premise but it isn’t a bible quote, it’s a principle which was deduced from axioms. It has far reaching logical consequences:

Logical Implications of “God Can’t Lie”

  1. IF God can’t lie
    • AND he promised that His Word is true (Psalms 119:160),
    • AND that not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law (Matthew 5:18),
      • THEN the Bible is true.
  2. IF the Bible is true
    • BUT popular science (SciPop) has a narrative for human origins which is different,
      • THEN SciPop is wrong.
  3. IF SciPop is wrong
    • THEN how is it wrong?
    • The errors in SciPop reasoning must be identified and accounted for.

We’re going to show you how the Bible can be true using exactly the same format as Sir Isaac Newton in Principia Mathematica. When Newton did this in 1687 the world was so impressed that they ignored all other lines of reasoning and built the most complex theoretical house of cards in history: Star Trek*. No kidding folks, Sir Isaac Newton is the reason why you think that that Star Trek universe is real.

*Technically speaking Copernicus wrote the first episode of Star Trek, but Newton invented algebra so everyone thinks that what he did has a solid mathematical basis.

Newton’s format includes axioms, corollaries and principles.

An axiom is a fact. Something self-evident which has common occurrence, like the fact that matter is made of molecules and atoms. It’s not self-evident in the sense that we can see atoms. It’s self-evident when we’re familiar with the historical development of physics and what we learned about the world from it. It’s perfectly obvious from the body of work available that matter is made of atoms. It doesn’t make any difference what you believe about God, the Bible or science, this is common ground: a fact. It’s not paradigm-dependent.

A corollary is a body of experimental work which supports the truth of the axiom. Newton had two corollaries for each axiom. That’s what we did too. The one difference between Mathematica and Mattymatica is that the former groups the axioms together, the corollaries together, and the principles follow after. We grouped each axiom with its corollaries.

Principles are the logical conclusions which we may deduce from the axioms and corollaries. These become our theoretical backbone. Whatever logical construct we deduce is valid if it’s congruent with our principles.

Scholium is a fancy word for notes that someone wrote in the margins of a page as a footnote to, or further development of, a line of reasoning.
