Astronomy

O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge—

(1 Timothy 6:20) NKJV

The Stars Will Fall to Earth

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

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

(Job 28:23-25) KJV

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.
