Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.(Matthew 13:52) KJV
Are we called to be a scribe? We used to think that this was important but not so much now. Anyway, our calling as a scribe is the result of a deductive process which goes like this:

And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.(2 Peter 1:19-21) ESV
One of the things which allows Matty’s Paradigm to be consistent with the broad narrative of scripture is understanding that creation has a specific purpose. This purpose harmonizes physics with spirituality.

Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.(1 Corinthians 3:12-15) KJV
Understanding the potentially grave consequences of this endeavor, we’re going to build a unified theory of everything (UTOE) on the foundation of Jesus Christ.

And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”(Matthew 13:52) ESV
Deduction is a wonderful thing. When applied to practical life situations it’s as straight forwards as: when one door closes, another door opens. When the doors are closed the conclusion that we may deduce is: it’s time to stay put.

For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.(Galatians 1:12) ESV
The idea that evidence is neutral and we all have access to it is known as Matty’s Razor. Evidence doesn’t lead to a conclusion, it just is. How we interpret evidence is determined by what we believe. It’s called cognitive bias.

Then he found a jawbone of a donkey that had recently died. He reached down and picked it up, and killed a thousand men with it. So Samson sang,
“With the jawbone of a donkey I killed a thousand men;(Judges 15:15-16) Good News Translation
With the jawbone of a donkey I piled them up in piles.”
On a dusty road between Kombolcha and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, we explained our origin story to our pastor, in which we were like Samson at Lehi: we had to smash mainstream science with a Donkey’s jawbone.

Lunatic Fringe or Legitimate Threat?
Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know?(Job 11:7-8) KJV
Despite the self-evident truth of empirical observations regarding elliptical planetary orbits, mainstream science (SciPop) promotes a rationalization for them that has no physical cause.
