The Narrative of Synonymy

And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

(Revelation 6:13) KJV

The peer review driven narrative starts with the desire that the Bible is wrong, the Earth is billions of years old, and there’s no possible way that the stars could, or would, fall to Earth.

The Weight of a Talent

And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

(Revelation 16:21) KJV

Can we calculate a new planetary radius for the Millennial Kingdom based on what Revelation tells us about how much stellar material will fall to Earth? How many stars are there? What’s the weight of a talent?
