The Forbidden Fruit

Then the Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to cultivate it and guard it. He told him, “You may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden, except the tree that gives knowledge of what is good and what is bad. You must not eat the fruit of that tree; if you do, you will die the same day.”

(Genesis 2:15-17) Good News Translation

Genesis 2:15-17 describes events of the sixth day. It gives us an example of superficial theology. Apparently God lied because Adam didn’t immediately drop dead when he ate the forbidden fruit.

Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.

(Psalms 139:16) NKJV

When we (that’s me and the Holy spirit) tell people that we believe that the sun orbits the Earth, few people make it past their incredulity. Of those who do, most respond by saying that the sun’s mass makes this impossible.

Indeed My hand has laid the foundation of the earth, And My right hand has stretched out the heavens; When I call to them, They stand up together.

(Isaiah 48:13) NKJV

The ordering of creation by the establishment of above (heaven) and below (Earth) was through the action of gravity, and the gravitational singularity is the assembly of souls where we all began.

Gravitational Time Dilation

For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

(Psalms 90:4) KJV

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

(2 Peter 3:8) KJV

The Bible predicts time dilation as observed. It is caused by the operation of gravity according to our axiomatic definition, which is congruent with practical mathematical applications.

Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

(Isaiah 24:1) KJV

Hypothesis 4

In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.

(Genesis 7:11) ESV

Was Mars the source of sediment for the Old Red Sandstone in Scotland and other deposits around the world? Comparing specimens from Mars and Scotland will show that they have the same provenance.

The Sign of Jonah

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.

Newton’s Firmament

Thus says the Lord, who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the Lord of hosts is his name:

“If this fixed order departs from before me, declares the Lord, then shall the offspring of Israel cease from being a nation before me forever.”

(Jeremiah 31:35-36) ESV

“And therefore as it is possible, that in the remote regions of the fixed stars, or perhaps far beyond them, there may be some body absolutely at rest; but impossible to know…” Sir Isaac Newton speculating about the firmament.
