Evidence for the Decay Constant

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 evidence that nuclear decay has been constant are measurements of radioactivity which have been made since it was discovered in 1896, about 120 years worth of data.

The Role of Synonymy

There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

(1 Corinthians 15:40-41) KJV

Synonymy has primary and secondary roles. The primary is to make it seem as if the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy is impossible. In which case, if the Bible is the inerrant word of an omnipotent God, it’s a fraud.

Synonymy

Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

(Matthew 24:29) KJV

The third axiom of popular science (SciPop) is stars are distant suns and galaxies. It’s part of Galileo’s Bluff, wishful thinking, an inductive rationalization of the premise that stars are distant suns and galaxies.

The Second Heaven

(celestial realm, cosmos, observable universe or space)

The stars fought from the sky;
as they moved across the sky,
they fought against Sisera.

(Judges 5:20) Good News Translation

Most of the space between the firmament and Earth is the cosmos or observable universe. There’s something very odd about the cosmos: there’s a disconnect between what we can see vs. what we believe about it.

90% of Your Mass is Missing

Stylalized ball-and-stick water molecule

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

(2 Corinthians 4:16-18) NKJV

We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) have an illustration from Physics that shows how Biblical literalists don’t have an inkling of the extent to which the Bible can be taken literally.

If it Looks Like a Galaxy

Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.

(Nehemiah 9:6) KJV

Galaxies, in terms of the scientific definition, don’t exist. The things that we call galaxies are ULM (unknown luminous matter), which consists of predominantly CFM (crystalline firmament material).

The Space Narrative

There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

(1 Corinthians 15:40-41) KJV

The peer review driven popular science space narrative (SciPop) starts with the premise that the Bible is wrong and the Earth is billions of years old. It continues with the idea that stars are distant suns and galaxies.

Synonymy

There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

(1 Corinthians 15:40-41) Good News Translation

Galileo was one of the first to popularize the idea that stars are distant suns. He was trying to explain why he couldn’t measure the stellar parallax that he predicted would be there if heliocentricity was true.
