For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

(Galatians 1:12) ESV

It’s about having fun, right? While expressing our unique perspective on the world. Some time ago it struck us that it would be funny and ironic to write a parody of Newton’s Principia Mathematica called Principia Mattymatica.

Newton thought that he was smarter than God. Unfortunately it appears that his peers did too from the amount of fawning drivel that is plastered all over the preface to the Principia.

FROM the thick darkness of the middle ages man’s struggling spirit emerged as in new birth ; breaking out of the iron control of that period ; growing strong and confident in the tug and din of succeeding conflict and revolution, it bounded forwards and upwards with resistless vigour to the investigation of physical and moral truth ; ascending height after height ; sweeping afar over the earth, penetrating afar up into the heavens ; increasing in endeavour, enlarging in endowment ; every where boldly, earnestly out-stretching, till, in the AUTHOR of the PRINCIPIA, one arose, who, grasping the master-key of the universe and treading its celestial paths, opened up to the human intellect the stupendous realities of the material world, and, in the unrolling of its harmonies, gave to the human heart a new song to the goodness, wisdom, and majesty of the all-creating, all-sustaining, all-perfect God.

– From the life of Sir Isaac Newton in the First American Edition of The Principia Mathematica

The idea was to mock and ridicule Newton’s ideas, set the record straight, all while copying the structure he used in his book. However, life has changed significantly for us over the last couple of years and we’ve grown a lot. We realized that Principia Mattymatica was an unnecessary expression of our ego and dropped it.

However… It may actually be a way to approach the issue that was raised by the doubtful Christian who asked us to substantiate the logical connection between God can’t lie and the Bible is true. To make a long story short, God can’t lie, and the Bible is true is a principle which is deduced from the axioms of Principia Mattymatica.

  1. Again, thanks for your responsiveness! Would it be possible to communicate with you privately? I am starting “in the beginning” – lol – day 1 and following of the WHY section at mattysparadigm – but by day 2 there is already a doctrinal difference I want to debate – not sure you want to go back and forth here? My email is: botswana1014@gmail.com


  2. Thanks for the timely reply on the above! Do you have any information, or have you accounted in your cosmology the 17 instances in the Scriptures where it mentions that God “stretched out the heavens?”
    (Psalm 104:2; Isaiah 40:22; Jeremiah 10:12; Zachariah 12:1; 2 Samuel 22:10; Psalm 18:9; Psalm 144:5; Job 9:8; Job 26:7; Job 37:18; Isaiah 42:5; Isaiah 44:24; Isaiah 45:12; Isaiah 48:13; Isaiah 51:13; Jeremiah 51:15 and Ezekiel 1:22)


    1. Raqia. Take a look at this post:
      However the whole month of February we consider that the creative act of the 2nd day was the creation of gravity.
      Gravity caused the earth to be deposited as concentric layers of sediment around a singularity, and it caused the formation of the heavens – a stretched out thinness – on the edge of space.
      This is integral to the Biblical doctrine of gravity.


  3. Sorry to contact you here – but couldn’t figure out any other way to reach you. RE: your July 6 post on Mattysparadigm – you said “It is impossible for Satan to have been in the garden of Eden to beguile Eve. Although regarded as the mastermind of a rebellion in heaven which predates the fall of man he is merely an opportunist.” Doesn’t this contradict Ezekiel 28:13 – or if not – can you explain who is this referring to in Ezekiel 28:13. Thanks
