Helical Helios

Earth-sun radial distance vs. the Sun's orbital radius.

Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.”

(Hosea 6:3) NIV

The sun orbits the Earth in a helical spiral. The sun is called Helios in Greek. Either the sun is called Helios because it has a helical orbit, or helices are called helices because they mimic the motion of the sun – Helios.

Betelgeuse Is Neither as Far Nor as Large as We Thought

In the wake of recent fluctuations in Betelgeuse’s brightness, astronomers have rigorously examined the star’s vital statistics, and come up with a bit of a surprise.

Betelgeuse is 25 percent closer than scientists thought

– Matty
  • Scientists studying the star Betelgeuse have determined that it’s actually roughly 25% closer than previous estimates.
  • The star is also slightly smaller than scientists assumed, though it still appears as though it’s reaching the end of its life.
  • The star poses no threat to Earth when it eventually blows up.

Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

(2 Corinthians 2:10) KJV

Objects in space may be closer than they appear. Betelgeuse isn’t only around 25% closer to Earth than previously thought, but it’s also considerably smaller. Those aren’t our words, they’re from the popular science press (SciPop).

Matty’s Parallax

Principia Mattymatica – Corolary VIII

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

(Exodus 20:4) KJV

When we change our assumption from Heliocentric to Geocentrospheric it has an effect on the distance to stellar objects. This is because of the way that stellar parallax works.

If it Looks Like a Galaxy

Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.

(Nehemiah 9:6) KJV

Galaxies, in terms of the scientific definition, don’t exist. The things that we call galaxies are ULM (unknown luminous matter), which consists of predominantly CFM (crystalline firmament material).

Switching Between Helio and Geo Centered Models

That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting That there is none besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other;

(Isaiah 45:6) NKJV

The best illustration of how we can switch back and forth between different frames of reference, such as heliocentric and Geocentrospheric, is an interactive guide to the flight path of the Voyagers.

Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?

(Job 38:31-33) KJV

There’s a nuance in discussing variation in the orbital radius of the sun vs. the Earth-sun radial distance. This gives popular science (SciPop) the ammo it needs to oppose anyone who proposes a Geocentrospheric model.

Earth-sun Radius

Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

(Psalms 19:4-6) KJV

Contrary to popular opinion, the Earth doesn’t have an elliptical orbit of the sun. The Earth-sun radius is, for all practical purposes, constant.

Corollary VIII – Matty’s Parallax

Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

(Isaiah 40:12) KJV

We challenged people to prove heliocentricity daily for 5 years. Most people didn’t get beyond their incredulity. Those who did used to rush of to Google, do a quick search, then posted the first search result.
