Gravitational Golf

Do all this in prayer, asking for God’s help. Pray on every occasion, as the Spirit leads. For this reason keep alert and never give up; pray always for all God’s people.

(Ephesians 6:18) Good News Translation

Every particle in the universe attracts every other particle in the universe with a force which is proportional to the sum of their mass and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

Why “F = ma” is the most important equation in physics

From high school through the professional ranks, physicists never tire of Newton’s second law.

– Matty
  • What seems like a simple, three-letter equation contains an enormous amount of information about our Universe.
  • The physics within it is vital for understanding all of motion, while the mathematics is the most important application of calculus to our reality.
  • By thinking about it properly, this equation can even lead us to relativity, and remains eternally useful to physicists of all levels.

Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation

Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure. Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

(Levitivus 19:35-36) KJV

Earth isn’t just the center of the observable universe, it’s also the gravitational center of the universe. However, we realize that most people are going to have problems with these statements.

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.

Principia Mattymatica

And the Lord said:
“Because this people draw near with their mouth
and honor me with their lips,
while their hearts are far from me,
and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men,
therefore, behold, I will again
do wonderful things with this people,
with wonder upon wonder;
and the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
and the discernment of their discerning men shall be hidden.”

(Isaiah 29:13-14) ESV

The purpose of Matty’s Paradigm is to cause irreparable damage to the theoretical foundation of popular science (SciPop) but, hey, it’s nothing personal.

Neinstein

Bald man with handlebar mustache in military uniform

But there was a man named Simon, who had previously practiced magic in the city and amazed the people of Samaria, saying that he himself was somebody great. They all paid attention to him, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the power of God that is called Great.” And they paid attention to him because for a long time he had amazed them with his magic.

(Acts 8:9-11) ESV

Our comic super heroines Sophia Proton and her trusty sidekick Kat Ion have found their Arch-villain: Neinstein. He’s probably somewhere between Sherlock Holmes’ Moriarty and Friedrich Nietzsche.
