In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.(Isaiah 27:1) KJV
We were recently told that Leviathan didn’t exist but it’s used in the Bible as a metaphor for Babylon. It was on Twitter, so the individual didn’t know what they were talking about.

Evolution Debunk: the Reptile-Mammal Transition
Who is the man so wise that he can understand this? To whom has the mouth of the LORD spoken, that he may declare it? Why is the land ruined and laid waste like a wilderness, so that no one passes through?(Jeremiah 9:12) ESV
We began our evangelistic ministry on Twitter thinking that it would be a great way to promote our Christian SciFi novel Biblio’s Blood. It didn’t turn out as expected.

Vanity of Vanities
The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity. What does man gain by all the toil(Ecclesiastes 1:1-3) ESV
at which he toils under the sun?
Principia Mattymatica is a couple of things. It’s a parody of Newton’s Principia Mathematica where we lay out the scriptural basis of a unified theory of everything: first cause, time, gravitation, electromagnetism, consciousness and redemption.

The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for
“‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring.’e(Acts 17:24-28) ESV
When confronted with an accusation on Twitter our impulse (that’s me and the Holy Spirit, except, usually grieving the Holy Spirit) is to be snarky about the poster’s cognitive dissonance (a way to call them stupid).

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.(Philippians 4:4-7) ESV
We (that’s me and the Holy Spirit) recently had a Twitter exchange with someone who resented God for their very existence. We got nowhere trying to encourage them to be thankful.

And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite. And the Philistines were gathered together into a troop, where was a piece of ground full of lentiles: and the people fled from the Philistines. But he stood in the midst of the ground, and defended it, and slew the Philistines: and the LORD wrought a great victory.(2 Samuel 23:11-12) KJV
We’ve been defending the Geocentrospheric model in the Twitter community since December 25th, 2015. It can’t be refuted. There’s a simple reason why: It’s Biblically accurate.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.(Hebrews 11:3) KJV
We all have exactly the same evidence.– Matty’s Razor
Our choice of paradigm determines what we believe it’s evidence of.
We show that the words faith and theory are synonyms. Sight and empirical are also synonyms. Empirical evidence is what we see. What we choose to believe about it is our faith.
We just got to the end of Biblio’s Blood on Instagram (the story so far) and I’m getting ready to start a new series. I have to say I’m really excited about the Christmas holiday, as it’s going to be all about Biblio’s Blood, including moving to a new domain! Between now and then I was thinking about running through all of the Matty’s Paradigm material again, but I’m pausing to think for a moment. I love sharing Matty’s Paradigm on Instagam because it’s a safe, friendly place where I can relax and let it out in the form of a casual conversation. Instagram is non-judgemental and supportive. Not like Twitter.
Matty’s Paradigm has been slowly bubbling away for many years until a year ago I began blogging it. Twitter immediately became the battleground where all of the issues and ideas have been subjected to hard fighting. In some ways it is reminiscent of wrestling with God, perhaps like what Jacob experienced in Genesis. Wrestling perfectly summarises Twitter, but I have to give it its dues: there is no better forum for ideas. I feel like Matty’s Paradigm is being rigorously stress tested. It’s been a year of fierce battles and huge success, so in the run up to Christmas I’m going to chill out. I have decided to begin to pull together all the material I have that is based on my life in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and Wake Forest University. I hope that you’ll enjoy it.
