The Narrative of Dark Matter

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

(2 Timothy 4:3-4) NKJV

Dark matter doesn’t exist outside the popular science paradigm (SciPop). It’s not a fact. Its existence is desired because the alternative is a firmament on the edge of space which isn’t compatible with the narrative.

Firmament: רָקִ֖יעַ – raqia

And I looked, and there in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubim, there appeared something like a sapphire stone, having the appearance of the likeness of a throne.

(Ezekiel 10:1) NKJV

The Hebrew word translated firmament is raqia. Some people struggle to interpret the firmament, most don’t bother. A simple definition is expanse so most translations render the meaning as “the expanse of the sky.”

Circles of Life

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words, whose voice is not heard. Their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them he has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber, and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them, and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

(Psalms 19:1-6) ESV

If the Earth is at the center of the universe, and the Sun orbits the Earth, then these bodies are the two foci of elliptical planetary orbits required by Kepler’s laws.

Riding upon Heaven

There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.

(Deuteronomy 33:26) KJV

It may seem sacrilegious to suggest that God rides on a cosmic surfboard, but it’s a conclusion which has been deduced. God and his agents may physically visit the Earth by riding on a piece of heaven.

Brightness Before Him and Darkness Under His Feet

He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

(Psalms 18:9-12) KJV

He bowed the heavens also, and came down With darkness under His feet. He rode upon a cherub, and flew; And He was seen upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness canopies around Him, Dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. From the brightness before Him Coals of fire were kindled.

(2 Samuel 22:10-13) NKJV

If heaven, the firmament, is a sphere of rigid crystal then we can resolve several passages of scripture which describe heaven, or pieces of heaven, as literally rigid crystalline structures.

The Foundations of the Heavens

And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

(Revelation 21:19-20) KJV

Understanding how the heavens were constructed allows us to interpret scripture and account for empirical observations of the cosmos, including 85% of the mass of the universe that popular science (SciPop) can’t find.
