Exodus

Hundreds of tiny figures of people walking across a barren landscape.

September 20

So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

(Exodus 9:24) KJV

The plagues of the Exodus included rivers and streams turning into blood, a rain of hail mingled with fire, and impenetrable darkness in which people couldn’t see their hands in front of their faces.

Worlds in Collision

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

Worlds in Collision” is the title of a book by Immanuel Velikovsky in which he proposes, among other things, that the plagues of the Exodus were caused by successive close approaches to Earth by the planet Venus.

Galileo’s Bluff

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.

(2 Timothy 4:3-4) ESV

Most people believe that Galileo proved Heliocentricity. He didn’t, but he showed that the religious dogma of his day was wrong.

Time no Longer

And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

(Revelation 22:5) KJV

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

(Revelation 20:10) KJV

How could there be no night in the new Jerusalem for ever and ever but, at the same time, day and night in the lake of fire for ever and ever? Physics and our unified theory of everything resolve this perfectly.

The Sun and Moon Stood Still

Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

(Joshua 10:12-14) KJV

Joshua was going so hard that he ordered the sun to stay still until he had killed everybody. That’s faith: when you know the power of God and trust in it so completely that of course you have access to it, why wouldn’t you?

Target Selective Hail Stones

And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword.

(Joshua 10:11) KJV

Stones fell out of heaven which killed only the Canaanites, but none of the Israelites. This is rather tricky to account for, at least, if you believe the Bible within the popular science paradigm (SciPop).
