Deducing Life in Zero-G

For inquire, please, of the former age, And consider the things discovered by their fathers; For we were born yesterday, and know nothing,
Because our days on earth are a shadow.

(Job 8:8-9) NKJV

The creation of gravity is one thing, but how do we deduce that life began before it? There are several clues. One involves the scriptural metaphor that milk has to come before solid food.

The Creation of Gravity

a drawing compass and the creation of gravity on the second day

When he established the heavens, I was there;
when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,

(Proverbs 8:27) English Standard Version

In a similar manner to that in which God said: Let there be light, the light was a reaction to nuclear fusion; when God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, it was a reaction to the creation of of gravity.

Journey to the Center of the Earth

Miners explore the deepest darkness.
They search the depths of the earth And dig for rocks in the darkness.

(Job 28:3) Good News Translation

The deepest hole ever drilled is the Kola Super-deep Bore-hole at 12 km. That’s less than 2% of the radius of the Earth. There are no direct observations of the Earth’s interior, nothing empirical, it’s entirely theoretical.

The Beginning of the Earth

Planet earth on the second day as concentric layers of sediment around a gravitational singularity

And he found a new jawbone of an ass, and put forth his hand, and took it, and slew a thousand men therewith. And Samson said, With the jawbone of an ass, heaps upon heaps, with the jaw of an ass have I slain a thousand men.

(Judges 15:15-16) KJV

In order to use seismological data to learn about the structure of the Earth we have to understand the formation of the Earth. In particular the creative act of the second day: the creation of gravity.

First Horses

a herd of horses

“Have you given the horse strength? Have you clothed his neck with thunder? Can you frighten him like a locust? His majestic snorting strikes terror. He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength; He gallops into the clash of arms. He mocks at fear, and is not frightened; Nor does he turn back from the sword. The quiver rattles against him, The glittering spear and javelin. He devours the distance with fierceness and rage; Nor does he come to a halt because the trumpet has sounded. At the blast of the trumpet he says, ‘Aha!’ He smells the battle from afar, The thunder of captains and shouting.

(Job 39:19-25) NKJV

In the evolution narrative the appearance of horses is considered to be recent. Very recent, like, why would an animal evolve which is specifically designed to carry humans if there aren’t any humans?

Dinosaurs in Idumea

The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.

And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.

(Isaiah 34:6, 13) KJV

Depending on which English Bible translation you read, you may or may not see the word dragon occur. Several Hebrew words are translated dragon in the KJV, but are rendered as various other creatures in newer translations.

Extinction of Giant Land Reptiles

Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him. Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth. He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.

(Job 40:15-24) KJV

Behold Behemoth, a Sauropod dinosaur which lived in the Jordan valley during the time of Job and Abraham. Clearly not all of the giant land reptiles were made extinct by Noah’s flood.
