YouTube or not YouTube?

That is the question.

For now the answer is… let’s see.

Our first video just went live. It is an adaptation of our post from February 6th:

Calculating the mass of earth takes circular reasoning and an assumption based on circumstantial evidence. It falls apart when you try to prove that there is no open space inside the earth.

So far it is the most read post in May, thanks largely to interest from the wonderful folk over at Reddit!

Cutting the Link between Mass and Gravity

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Can Math Prove There’s no Hell?

He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them.

(1 Samuel 2:8) KJV

If you use circular reasoning to induce a rationalization of the premise that there’s no hell, but there is a hell, and then you code your rationale as math, does hell disappear?

Attacking the Assumption Underlying the Gravitational Constant G and Variable g

If one day the sky could be measured
and the foundations of the earth explored,
only then would he reject the people of Israel
because of all they have done.
The Lord has spoken.

(Jeremiah 31:37) Good News Translation

There’s an assumption underlying Newton’s understanding of gravity and the theoretical basis of the gravitational constant G and variable g. It’s time to attack it.

Noah’s Math

And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered. The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered.

(Genesis 7:19-20) NKJV

This post is a response to, and a rebuttal of: How much water would be needed for Noah’s Flood? by Andrew L. Seidel. He posted the link in a Twitter thread discussing our post do I still need to ask for forgiveness?

Radial Shrinkage and the Pillars of the Earth

From the beginning I predicted the outcome;
long ago I foretold what would happen.
I said that my plans would never fail,
that I would do everything I intended to do.

(Isaiah 46:10) Good News Translation

I had a tweet that asked the question: Why is the interior of the Earth hot? This started a conversation that revealed what we really know about the interior of the Earth. It started like this:

An answer to the question "Why is the interior of the earth hot?"

Why is the interior of the Earth hot?

“Because it has a core that is almost entirely magma. Magma is molten rock and therefore it is hot.”
