The Foundations of the Heavens?

And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

(Revelation 21:19-20) KJV

We don’t hammer square pegs into round holes to get the pieces of Matty’s Paradigm to fall into place. It’s deduced, not induced. This is another nail to hammer into the lid on the coffin of Flat Earth.

Flat Earth isn’t Biblical

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

(Colossians 2:8) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for March

The Bible describes a spherical earth at the center of a spherical cosmos. The center of earth is hell. Hell is expanding, it’s the cause of global warming. Flat earth is a load of dingo’s kidneys.

Out of Course?

How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

(Psalms 82:2-5) KJV

The SciPop community wants you to believe that the earth orbits the sun and the sun is traveling through space. The Psalmist wants you to know that those who want you to believe this are wicked oppressors.

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.

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.

– Matty’s Razor

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,

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

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for March

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.

God Planted a Garden

And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

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.

The probability that four habits evolved in 620 plant families is a number too big to display in Google Sheets. The probability that four habits were created with 620 flower types is not that big. Occam’s razor that.

The Beginning from the End

Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

(Isaiah 46:10) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for March

SciPop has a rationalization for why there’s no hell or great gulf of open space inside the earth, because SciPop wants to be an antidote for guilt, and the fear of of judgment and eternal torment.

The Armour of Light

The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

(Romans 13:12) KJV

If you don’t understand SciPop well enough to know that it’s not a threat to the truth of the Bible, and try to live a Christian life without the truth of the Bible, then you have no armor of light.

Math = Faith

And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead? To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

(Isaiah 8:19-20) KJV

This post is part of the WHY? daily devotional for February

Faith is believing in something that you can’t see. Math requires believing in concepts that you can’t see and relating them to each other in ways that can’t be seen. Math is the language of faith.
