The stars fought from heaven. The stars in their orbits fought against Sisera.(Judges 5:20) NLT
Kepler’s laws are the Achilles Heel of popular science (SciPop) because, even though they’re empirical, no known cause for them has been identified.

Vanity of Vanities
The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity. What does man gain by all the toil(Ecclesiastes 1:1-3) ESV
at which he toils under the sun?
Principia Mattymatica is a couple of things. It’s a parody of Newton’s Principia Mathematica where we lay out the scriptural basis of a unified theory of everything: first cause, time, gravitation, electromagnetism, consciousness and redemption.

He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.(Psalms 147:4) KJV
We’re on popular science turf (SciPop) when we start talking in scientific terms about the cosmos. This is where some sleight-of-hand has been deployed: SciPop wants you to believe that the stars are suns.

To Boldly Go
You are wearied with your many counsels; let them stand forth and save you, those who divide the heavens, who gaze at the stars, who at the new moons make known what shall come upon you.(Isaiah 47:13) ESV
Ask the average atheist science troll (AST) scientifically illiterate science worshiper (SISW) or popular science devotee (SciPopper) to prove heliocentricity and the most frequent response is:

“Why? Heliocentricity was proven hundreds of years ago by Copernicus.”– Almost universal false belief.
For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.(Matthew 12:40) ESV
The sign of Jonah is one of those things which looks like a Biblical inconsistency and the various ways that Christian scholars have tried to resolve it don’t work. On the face of it, it looks like Jesus lied.

while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.(2 Corinthians 4:18) NKJV
Faith and sight are opposites, like light and darkness, good and evil. When you have one you don’t need the other, and vice versa. We also use them as concepts in a unified theory of everything.

Happy Π Day!
And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.(1 Kings 7:23) KJV
Today is an opportune time to discuss something quintessentially Biblical: math.

Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.(Leviticus 19:36) KJV
Some people, in particular atheist science trolls (ASTs), claim that there’s incorrect math in the Bible are using incorrect math: They’ve forgotten the basic principle of rounding numbers.

Then he made the sea of cast metal. It was round, ten cubits from brim to brim, and five cubits high, and a line of thirty cubits measured its circumference.(2 Chronicles 4:2) ESV
It’s March 14 which could be written as 3.14, the mathematical constant Π which expresses the relationship between circumference and diameter. Atheist science trolls (ASTs) dismiss the Bible because, supposedly, it has the wrong value for Π.

O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge—(1 Timothy 6:20) NKJV
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.
