Theory is the Scientific Word for Faith
It is by faith that we understand that the universe was created by God’s word, so that what can be seen was made out of what cannot be seen.(Hebrews 11:3) Good News Translation
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.
There’s a disconnect between theoretical: what we can’t see; and empirical: what we can see. We can think of it as faith vs. sight. We live on planet Earth and from our point of view (POV) it’s stationary. We observe the sun rise and set every day. We observe the stars arc across the heavens every night. It’s empirical. It’s an absolute frame of reference.
However, no one believes that the Earth is stationary or that the sun rises and sets or that the stars are orbiting the Earth. Everyone believes that the Earth moves and rotates. It’s theoretical. We can imagine it, but we can’t see it. Theoretical vs. empirical are opposites, like light and darkness, good and evil.
What is Faith?
Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.– Faith, definition
To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.(Hebrews 11:1) Good News Translation
The other issue which we (that’s me and the Holy spirit) are going to incorporate is: what is faith? Current propaganda widely disseminated through mediums like Twitter is:
Faith is belief without evidence.– SciPop propaganda
However, this has no connection with reality because we all, regardless of what we believe, have exactly the same evidence (Matty’s razor). The classic example is the stratigraphic column, or sedimentary rocks.
The Stratigraphic Column is evidence of…
- In the popular science paradigm (SciPop) it’s used as evidence for:
- the Geological Timescale, a contrivance of circular reasoning which is the backbone of Darwinian evolution.
- It’s divided into sections like Cambrian, Silurian, Ordovician, Devonian etc.
- In Matty’s Paradigm it’s evidence for:
- the creation of gravity and the core accretion model,
- Precambrian (Gravitian) fossils were deposited on the second day.
- Noah’s flood,
- Cambrian-Quaternary (Noachian) fossils were deposited in Noah’s flood.
- the creation of gravity and the core accretion model,
This means that faith can’t be belief without evidence, because we all have the same evidence. This is known as Matty’s razor. We can take Hebrews 11:1 as the definition of faith, which in simple terms is: faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.
The 3 Aspects of Scientific Faith
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.(Hebrews 11:6) KJV
The traditional battle line of science vs. faith is a false dichotomy. It’s based on a definition of faith which is intentionally deceptive. Science, at least the theoretical parts of mainstream science which have been woven into a false narrative of godless existence (SciPop), requires faith because it’s just one possible interpretation of the same evidence used for any alternative viewpoint. As such, there are 3 aspects of scientific faith:
However, we can take this to an even more fundamental level.
We will simplify the meaning of Hebrews 11:1. It’s an example of a Hebrew couplet, even though it is New Testament and was written in Greek.
As a statement of logic we can regard the comma ( , ) as the ( = ) sign in an equation. This means that the meaning of the phrase before the comma is exactly the same as the meaning of the phrase after the comma, just stated differently. This is no different to how the equals sign works in math. Therefore:
- IF faith is the substance of things hoped for,
- AND the evidence of things not seen,
- THEN faith = evidence
- AND we hope for what we can’t see.
Faith is evidence. There is abundant proof of this in the SciPop community. The members of the community don’t appear to know much about science, they just believe it. You see it manifested this way:
Science is true because it works.– SciPop propaganda
The iPhone is totally cool, and that’s science, so the SciPop narrative of godless existence must be true too, right? We landed a space vehicle on a comet, so if SciPop says the earth orbits the sun it must do, right? Nobody understands anything now, but SciPop has figured it out so it’s fine, right? People believe that SciPop is right about human origins because of the overwhelming success of technology.
Heliocentric vs. Geocentrospheric
Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.(Psalms 19:4-6) KJV
The perfect example of faith in science is heliocentricity. We’ll cover this in detail in April, our discussion of the fourth day of creation, but the Geocentrospheric system was established when gravity was created on the second day.
We spent over seven years (starting December 25, 2015) on Twitter asking everyone we interacted with to prove heliocentricity.
We learned that that there’s no proof, and the evidence that’s presented as proof isn’t proof.
We’ve compiled a list of the purported proofs of heliocentricity. Each of these supposed proofs is a form of evidence, however, they can all be used as evidence both for and against heliocentricity depending on your choice of paradigm. As such, if the evidence can be used for both sides of an argument then it’s like in math when a figure appears on both sides of the equation, it cancels itself out. This means that the physical evidence is irrelevant and we come back to a simple choice about what you want to believe. Your choice, what you put faith in, is the only evidence left.
- Q: What’s the evidence of heliocentricity?
- A: Everyone believes it.
We can derive this with logic:
- IF everyone believes heliocentricity,
- AND they can’t see it,
- AND physical evidence is irrelevant,
- AND faith is believing something that you can’t see,
- THEN everyone has faith in heliocentricity.
- THEREFORE faith = evidence.
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12) NKJV
A strong delusion is that the heliocentric theory disproves Geocentrosphericity. People think that they’re mutually exclusive, as if one excludes the possibility that the other can exist. They’re just different frames of reference of the same system. They coexist, but one is empirical, the other is theoretical.
Another strong delusion is that it’s impossible to model the Geocentrospheric system, therefore it’s false. Scientists of yesteryear GAVE UP trying to model the Geocentrospheric system because it’s too complicated to draw diagrams of, but we live in a full-size scale model of a Geocentrospheric system. We observe a Geocentrospheric system from our POV. It’s happening around us. You can’t disprove the Geocentrospheric model, we live in one.
Incidentally this lead to the use of Occam’s Razor, the epitome of delusion, as a way to rationalize why it’s okay to reject an explanation that’s too complicated to figure out. Real life is never the simplest explanation, Occam’s Razor is the scientific embodiment of willful ignorance.
Occam’s razor is a philosophical tenet which epitomizes the strong delusion, the scientific embodiment of willful ignorance, an excuse to ignore the truth whenever it’s inconvenient. It’s a major deity in the atheist pantheon, the subject of a lot of special pleading.– Occam’s razor, definition
Faith = Theory: Empirical = Sight
For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.(Romans 8:24-25) NKJV
The problem started when science began to induce a rationalization of the existence of the universe to make it appear that God isn’t necessary. This is SciPop. People hope that there’s no God because we don’t want to be judged or suffer any consequences for our actions. The SciPop world view has prevailed and is the only thing most kids will ever hear about.
SciPop A priori rejected the Bible as a possible explanation and so it has to look elsewhere. In this case to Star Trek. We can’t see a distant sun that has a planet with potentially earth-like characteristics orbiting it, but that’s what we hope for because it means that the Star Trek universe is true. Therefore, when we see unknown cosmic phenomena an explanation is induced which appears to rationalize this hope.
- SIGHT: Geocentrosphericity is observed. We don’t have to hope for it.
- FAITH: Heliocentricity isn’t observed. It’s hoped for.
Our passage today goes on to say that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. That doesn’t mean that God created the universe from nothing. It means we can’t see atoms and molecules but we believe that the world is made of them. In this case, matter being made of atoms is compatible with both the Biblical and SciPop world view, so there’s no reason to argue about it.
If the evidence of heliocentricity is that everyone believes it, then the evidence of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ is millions of Christians. Faith = evidence.
