Searched out Beneath

Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.

(Jeremiah 31:37) KJV

The interior of the earth is not seen. The hope of our generation is that hell is a myth. That would mean that there’s no judgement for sin and we can live immoral lives without fearing any consequences.

Unfortunately the very same data that SciPop uses as evidence that there’s no hell may be used as evidence for hell. That’s how evidence works: it’s evidence of whatever you choose to believe about it. This is known as Matty’s Razor.

We all have exactly the same evidence.
Our choice of paradigm determines what we believe it’s evidence of.

Jeremiah’s Logic

  • IF God will cast off the seed of Israel,
    1. If heaven above can be measured,
    2. the foundations of the earth can be searched out beneath,
  • BUT God doesn’t cast off the seed of Israel,
  • THEN:
    1. heaven above can’t be measured,
    2. the foundations of the earth can’t be searched out beneath,

Genesis 1 vs. Genesis 2

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

(Hebrews 11:3) KJV

Genesis 1 and 2 aren’t contradictory, they have different narrative style. People who want them to conflict are looking for an excuse to dismiss the truth, because they don’t want the truth.

Theory is the SciPop Word for Faith

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

We all have exactly the same evidence.
Our choice of paradigm determines what we believe it’s evidence of.

– Matty’s Razor

We show that the words faith and theory are synonyms. Sight and empirical are also synonyms. Empirical evidence is what we see. What we choose to believe about it is our faith.

Gravitational Drag Effect (GDE)

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

It’s not possible to prove that the earth is rotating. Experimental results which have formerly been used as a way to prove that the earth has daily rotation are examples of Gravitational Drag Effect.

Make all Things According to the Pattern

For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer. For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.

Hydrogen atoms, H+, are necessary for nucleosynthesis, but also for life. If we said that all metabolism is based on a process that produces a supply of H+ it would not be an exaggeration.

The existence of the deep means that the process of creation does not require God to create anything from nothing. The first law of thermodynamics is not broken in the Biblical account of creation.

Once Offered

It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

The sacrifice, slaying the lamb from the foundation of the earth, made creation possible. The symbolism, a sacrifice made for our propitiation, was given us by Jesus of Nazareth. They are both the Son of God.
