The Fifth Day
And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.(Genesis 1:20-23) KJV
The Bible describes a sequential process of creating life by sphere. There are five spheres to consider: hydrosphere, lithosphere, firmasphere, atmosphere and biosphere.
When the Bible refers to living creatures that have life, it’s referring to a sentient being which has a spirit and a soul. It’s not equivalent to the biological definition of life.
People have found many ingenious reasons to reject the truth of the Bible. There are also some which aren’t ingenious, not by a long shot.
Matty’s Paradigm incorporates both macro- and micro-evolution, but they aren’t an entropy defying source of new complexity and diversity. Our genomes are decaying, and we call the process devolution.
Rejoice in salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and be set free. Let down your heavy burden and rest. Let’s worship the Lord, celebrate the beauty of His creation, and study dragons!
If we have two types of dragon which are both serpents, clearly identified physical traits, and one has a syndrome of characteristics which occurs in several groups, then we have the beginning of a hierarchical taxonomy.
Given that synapomorphies only occur after the process of evolution has started, and evolution is a consequence of sin, it’s appropriate to change the spelling of synapomorphy to sinapomorphy.
Artistic renderings of Seraphim consistently miss the fact that they’re reptilian. Their physical characteristics will have implications for us when we consider the terrestrial serpents that were created on the sixth day.
In the context of our lips speaking lies and separating us from God something caused the Cockatrice, an egg-layer which formerly had legs and wings, to take on the form of a limbless snake. Any guesses?
Satan’s spiritual form is a vapor: specific chemical compound(s) which embody his character and nature, such that when someone has it in their system they’re susceptible to his will.
A Living Soul
How can a spiritual entity which is based on a gravity node project a visible image? Humans figured out how to project holograms. God has been doing it for millennia. Satan can do it too.
The Reptile-Mammal Transition
The reptile/mammal transition isn’t evolution, there’s no passage of heritable traits from generation to generation, it’s abiogenesis. It illustrates the use of spherogenetic systematics as a deductive tool.
In spherogenetic systematics Fish is a higher rank than Whale. The fish of the sea is everything created in the hydrosphere. Whale is a subcategory. The thing that swallowed Jonah was both a fish and a whale.
Can we take a systematic approach to the Bible and come to know the mind of Christ? Some things are spiritually discerned, but if we who are spiritual take a systematic approach, what will we find?
Seraphim and Cherubim were created in the firmasphere on the fourth day. God recombined their characteristics as he created the moving creatures in the hydrosphere and fowls in the atmosphere on the fifth day.
It’s commonly spoken of and preached that the “anointed cherub” of Ezekiel is Lucifer, also known as Satan. This is impossible. There are five reasons why the anointed cherub isn’t Satan.
The Bible must account for everything we see around us today: in the heavens above and in the earth below. Otherwise God’s lying. Since God can’t lie we use deduction to show how the pieces fit together.
Matty’s Paradigm isn’t what you have to believe to be a Christian, it’s what CAN be believed in the name of Jesus Christ which is in perfect harmony with both the Word of God and science.
