April 15

Burn the Witch!

The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rock, in your lofty dwelling, who say in your heart, “Who will bring me down to the ground?” Though you soar aloft like the eagle, though your nest is set among the stars, from there I will bring you down, declares the Lord.

(Obadiah 1:3-4) KJV

“Galaxies” are an induced rationalization of the premise that swirls of minute specks are galaxies and the word “galaxy” has been defined to meet the requirements of the popular science narrative (SciPop).

Celestial Navigation

Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.

(Job 9:9) KJV

Biblical cosmology is Geocentrospheric but it’s not a problem because it’s an empirical observation. Christians who combine the Bible with heliocentricity are in for a bumpy ride.

The Logical Fallacy of Scientific Truths

O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,”

(1 Timothy 6:20) ESV

Science is a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws: the mathematical sciences, systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation, any of the branches of natural or physical science.

– Science, definition (Dictionary.com)

The phrase scientific truths is plural, meaning more than one. Truth is absolute, meaning there’s only one. In popular science (SciPop) truths are subjective which means that they can be whatever SciPop wants or needs.

Astronomy

Timothy, keep safe what has been entrusted to your care. Avoid the profane talk and foolish arguments of what some people wrongly call “Knowledge.” For some have claimed to possess it, and as a result they have lost the way of faith.

God’s grace be with you all.

(1 Timothy 6:20-21) Good News Translation

We like wry humor here at Matty’s Paradigm. A double-dose of irony with a side of snark. Here’s the definition of what you call Astronomy after it’s been filtered through the lens of Biblical cosmology.

Betelgeuse is 25 percent closer than scientists thought

This is a direct copy of a SciPop or news article preserved here because things on the internet have a bad habit of disappearing when you try to find them again. Full credit is given to the original authors and the source.

– 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.

Elijah

And they asked him, “Why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?” And he said to them, “Elijah does come first to restore all things. And how is it written of the Son of Man that he should suffer many things and be treated with contempt? But I tell you that Elijah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written of him.”

(Mark 9:11-13) ESV

For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John, and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

(Matthew 11:13-15) ESV

Christianity has been absently meandering alongside the wide road to destruction as an accomplice to popular science (SciPop) for generations. So why are we trying to wake these people up? Why now?

The Brightness of the Firmament

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. (Daniel 12:3)

The wise leaders will shine with all the brightness of the sky. And those who have taught many people to do what is right will shine like the stars forever.

(Daniel 12:3) Good News Translation

Then God’s people will shine like the sun in their Father’s Kingdom. Listen, then, if you have ears!

(Matthew 13:43) Good News Translation

The creation of gravity and formation of the firmament was to establish a place, heaven, where God would dwell in perpetual light because the firmament is bright like the sun, as we see from Daniel.

The Three Heavens

blue sky with clouds

I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a one was caught up to the third heaven.

(2 Corinthians 12:2) NKJV

Given that the apostle Paul specifically refers to something called the third heaven it’s not a stretch to conclude that there must also be a first and a second heaven. We need to know what they are.
