Tehom

Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:

(Deuteronomy 5:8) KJV

The deep, of Genesis 1:2 became the great deep, the deeps and the depths of the created world. They’re all translated from the same Hebrew word, tehom. The deep became creation. The word became flesh.

The Bars of the Pit

They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.

(Job 17:16) KJV

We’re on a downward descent into the heart of the earth. So far we have considered Biblical references to physical features of the crust and mantle. As we go deeper we pass into the great gulf, which could also be rendered mega chasm, which is the region in the interior of the earth which SciPop arbitrarily calls the liquid outer core.

The pillars of the earth are incorporated into a 3D model of a Biblical spherical earth in which they are part of earth’s internal structure. They don’t require us to believe that the earth is flat.

The Ends of the Earth

God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof. For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven; To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.

(Job 28:23-25) KJV

If you want to believe that earth is flat no one’s going to stop you. However nothing in the Bible, either in the meaning of words or in the context of passages, requires you to believe that earth is flat and has an edge.

Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.

(Proverbs 17:24) KJV

The proverb above has a familiar ring to it. How about this for comparison?

All his life has he looked away… to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was… what he was doing.

– Master Yoda

This isn’t talking about the edge of a flat earth, it’s talking about someone who lets his or her mind wander off into… the Star Trek universe of SciPop.

Two Trees

And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

(Genesis 2:8-9) KJV

We have lots of questions and definitions today. I thought I’d share them.

  • Question:
    • IF God created a perfect world which got ruined by accident,
    • THEN why was the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden?
  • Answer:
    • God didn’t create a perfect world.
  • Question:
    • WHY did God put the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden,
    • IF he knew that eating the fruit would ruin his creation?
  • Answer:
    • Eating the fruit didn’t ruin God’s creation.
  • Question:
    • IF God’s perfect world wasn’t supposed to fall into corruption, Plan A,
    • THEN was Christ’s death on the cross Plan B?
  • Answer:
    • God didn’t create a perfect world.
  • Question:
    • IF our soul is eternal,
    • WHY would we need a tree of life?
  • Answer:
    • The tree of life is for healing the body, not the soul.

Abiogenesis is the creative will of God expressed as progressively more complex biological life over the course of the 6 days of creation.

– Abiogenesis, definition

Devolution is change in allele frequency in a population, combined with accumulated mutations and DNA replication errors, that causes genomic decay, sickness, and loss of variability over time. It includes both macro and micro evolution. It began at the fall of man in Genesis 3:16.

– Devolution, definition

Devolution is the process of genetic change over time by which the animals saved on Noah’s ark gave rise to the distribution of current biodiversity.

– Devolution, context

Evolution on the scale required in the SciPop paradigm requires death. There was no death before sin, therefore the evolutionary basis of the Phylogenetic Tree of Life is impossible.

PLEISTOCENE

August 27th

Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.
By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.

( Job 37:9-10 ) KJV

Generalizations have been used to obscure the truth which is that ice formed because the waters of Noah’s flood evaporated. Evaporation causes cooling, and cooling caused the ice. Ice has been retreating ever since Noah’s flood. The ice has been mitigating the effect of the expansion of hell. Now there is very little ice left which is why we are experiencing “climate change.”


Each of the geological Eras, Periods and Epochs are technically accurate descriptions of the evidence. However, the misdirection is that each one happened at a different time in history. They are the same event.


There’s something else to bear in mind: the mammoth and other creatures were preserved in ice. The ice formed because of the cooling effect of the flood waters evaporating. Therefore there was no ice before the flood. The ice was a result of the flood. Therefore the mammoth didn’t live in an icy environment, and paleoecological reconstructions of it are completely wrong. They get cause and effect in the wrong order.

Celestial Navigation

Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.

( Job 9:9 ) KJV

The Bible doesn’t describe a heliocentric system, but that’s okay because we don’t observe heliocentricity. It’s a theoretical interpretation of the empirical geocentrospheric reality: it’s imaginary.
