The Midst of Hell

The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the midst of hell with them that help him: they are gone down, they lie uncircumcised, slain by the sword.

If you’re skeptical that there’s really an underworld realm of the dead you should consider two things:

1. the deepest hole ever drilled is 12 km deep,
2. the Lehmann Discontinuity is approximately 220 km deep.

Foundation(s) of the World/Earth

  1. the foundation of the world (Greek, singular)
    • conception
      • before God said let there be light,
      • the act of conception which begat God the Son.
  2. the foundation(s) of the earth (Hebrew)
    • gravitational singularity
      • the creative act of the 2nd day,
      • the inception of the core accretion model.
  3. the foundations of the world (Hebrew, plural)
    • the earth’s crust and mantle,
      • synonyms:
        1. bottoms of the mountains
        2. foundations of the hills
        3. foundations of the mountains

We illustrate a clear difference between the Hebrew erets (earth), and tebel (world). The foundations of the world (tebel) refers to the crust and mantle which was exposed as the ocean floor.

The Hebrews had a well developed idea of life after death. For them death, the grave, was a portal into a complex underworld realm. The grave is just the beginning of what happens next.

God Planted a Garden

And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

Devolution is the process of genetic change over time by which the animals saved on Noah’s ark gave rise to the distribution of current biodiversity.

The probability that four habits evolved in 620 plant families is a number too big to display in Google Sheets. The probability that four habits were created with 620 flower types is not that big. Occam’s razor that.

There Went up a Mist

And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

(Genesis 2:5-6) KJV

When we consider the similarities between the 3rd day and the Millennial Kingdom we should realize that, if flat earth is Biblical, then maps of the supposed flat earth should have Jerusalem at the center. They don’t.
