How Did You Miss?

“The Guide says that there is an art to flying,” said Ford, “or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.”

– Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

I’m reading the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy to my son while I’m homeschooling him. We do all of the school assignments of course, but I have a few assignments of my own. These include reading to him some of the books that have had particular significance in my life.

We have read through John Watson’s the Double Helix, and Arthur Ransom’s Swallows and Amazons. We read the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe and we just started Life, the Universe and Everything. That’s when we got to the part about learning to fly.

It somehow produced, in my mind, a tenuous connection to the Matty’s Paradigm predictive testable hypothesis 22, which itself is an outgrowth of the Sophia Proton thought experiment.

Predictive Testable Hypothesis 22

  • IF the Holy Spirit is the power of God to inspire human writers,
    • AND the physics of the universe has been written in scripture so that it’s
      1. obvious and
      2. invisible,
  • THEN phrases or words that look like chemistry, physics, biology or geology should be treated as if they are chemistry, physics, biology or geology,
    • AND the science will be congruent with the scriptural context.

The connection is, as I said, tenuous and, if I’m honest, I can’t quite put it into words at this time. However, it has something to do with so-called Biblical literalists not actually taking the Bible literally, and somehow managing to miss most of its meaning.

Something along those lines. I’ll figure it out.

The Pillars of the Earth

Creation Theory Predictive Testable Hypothesis 8

He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them.

(1 Samuel 2:8) KJV

Predictive Testable Hypothesis 8

  • IF geological features such as
    • Monument Valley, Utah;
    • Devil’s Tower, Wyoming;
    • Pilot Mountain, North Carolina; and
    • Saint Michael’s Mount, UK, are remnants of the pillars of the earth,
  • THEN we have the approximate radius of the inner surface of the earth’s mantle on the 3rd day,
    • AND a way to calculate the original radius of the earth,
  • THEREFORE these geological features will be finely bedded metamorphic structures, not igneous intrusions.

If there are remnants of the pillars of the earth today, then we have an important clue that allows us to calculate the original radius of the earth as it was on the 3rd day of creation: approximately 7,653 km.

Thought for the Day

If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

(2 Chronicles 7:13-14) KJV

The Sides of the Pit

Asshur is there and all her company: his graves are about him: all of them slain, fallen by the sword: Whose graves are set in the sides of the pit, and her company is round about her grave: all of them slain, fallen by the sword, which caused terror in the land of the living.

(Ezekiel 32:22-23) KJV

If you’re on a downward course and leave the lower mantle, once you enter the great gulf, there’s nothing to stop your fall into the core. This means that the pit refers to everything below the mantle.

Predictive Testable Hypothesis 28

  • IF the grave refers to the region of the earth’s mantle,
    • AND the pit refers to the molten core,
  • THEN you may be brought up from the grave, but not the pit.

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

On the 3rd day there was no rain upon the earth and there was not a man to till the ground. On the 6th day there was a man in the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it, logically there was also rain.

Let Light Be

Creation Theory Predictive Testable Hypothesis 7

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

( Genesis 1:3 ) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for January.

Let Light Be (LLB) Nucleosynthesis, and the conditions described in Genesis 1:2-3, gives us the origin of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR). Therefore, detection of the CMBR proves that Genesis is true.

A Testable Hypothesis for God

Creation Theory Predictive Testable Hypothesis 11

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

( Malachi 3:10 ) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for January.

Non-believers frequently demand proof of God, and insist that absence of said proof is proof of the absence of said God. This proof is available, you may have proof of God any time you want.
