The Third Day
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day.(Genesis 1:9-13) KJV
Popular science (SciPop) wants to be your antidote to guilt, the fear of judgment, and eternal torment.
Genesis 1 and 2 aren’t contradictory, they have different narrative style.
Hydrology deduction 1: Where did the water come from to water the Earth if there hadn’t been any rain?
Hydrology Deduction 2: Why were no Cherubim or flaming swords on the North, West and South of Eden?
Hydrological deduction 3: IF the deep is sending out little rivers to all the trees of the field, where is it?
Hydrology Deduction 4: IF four rivers flowed from Eden, THEN where did they go?
Hydrology Deduction 5: how did the sea get back into the interior of the Earth so that it could recirculate?
Hydrology Deduction 6: Something sealed shut the fountains of the great deep at the end of the third day.

Summary of March
|3||GREAT GULF||March 21-25|
The traditional battle line of the science vs. faith debate is creation vs. evolution. However, science requires faith, and evolution is an integral part of the creation narrative.
There’s a book in you that only YOU can write!
Evolution on the scale needed by popular science requires death, but there was no death before sin.
The phrase “the ends of the earth” refers to the coast. It’s what the ancients called “the beach.”
The Hebrews had a well developed idea of life after death. The grave is the beginning of what happens next.
Happy Π Day!
Despite the frequently promoted propaganda you may have seen, the Bible gets the value of Π correct.
MANTLE (mibbeten sheol/tachti erets)
The interior of the Earth isn’t seen. Things that we can’t see are what we hope for.
Jonah gives us direct observation of the pillars of the earth. Direct observation is called empirical.
We illustrate a clear difference in usage between the Hebrew erets (earth), and tebel (world).
The “lower parts of the earth” is the lower mantle which we’ve identified as “the belly of hell.”
Is there really an underworld realm of the dead? Consider this:
- the deepest hole is 12 km deep,
- the Lehmann discontinuity is about 220 km deep.
Once you enter the great gulf nothing can stop your fall into the core. The pit is everything below the mantle.
GREAT GULF (bad sheol/matsuq erets)
The deep, of Genesis 1:2 became the great deep, the deeps and the depths of the created world.
Hell is the default outcome for all matter and souls, the alternative: faith and life in Jesus Christ.
CORE (sheol tachti/mowcadah erets)
The function of the pit is to hold the souls of the lost until the final judgement.
The pit, pit of corruption, and the lowest hell are the molten core of the Earth from which there’s no return.
Popular science wants you to believe that the Earth orbits the sun and the sun is traveling through space.
Greek references to hell are in harmony with the model we constructed from Hebrew.
The Bible describes a spherical Earth at the center of a spherical cosmos. #FlatEarth is a load of dingo’s kidneys.
God covered the proof of his presence and gave us free will so that believing in Him is a choice.
