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.
