The Stars Will Fall to Earth
So God made the two larger lights, the sun to rule over the day and the moon to rule over the night; he also made the stars.(Genesis 1:16) Good News Translation
It’s ironic that today is April Fools’ Day because today we (that’s me and the Holy spirit) begin to make the case that the universe is Geocentrospheric, but this isn’t a joke.
We’re going use the Bible to understand empirical observations of the cosmos, but this means that we have to understand what empirical means.
Empirical is based on, concerned with, or verifiable by observation or experience rather than theory or pure logic. Derived from or guided by experience or experiment.– Empirical, definition (Dictionary)
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
We observe the sun rise and set. We observe the stars arc across the sky. The observable universe is observed to orbit the Earth every day. This is empirical. The Bible describes a cosmological system which is in harmony with what we can see with our eyes.
Mainstream science (SciPop) has a rationalization of the cosmos which is completely different to the Bible. It’s Heliocentric. It’s not observed, not at anytime, ever. It’s theoretical. For this reason we’ll look at primary sources of evidence to find out what happened in SciPop to cause it to be so wrong. We’ll look at the work of Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, Einstein, Hubble, Hoyle and Hawking to find out why their theoretical explanation of the cosmos doesn’t match empirical observations.
This means that we have to know what the Bible says and be honest about it. A major consideration in a Biblical cosmology is to accommodate the fulfillment of prophecy. This is critical in understanding passages of scripture which are specific references to the stars falling from heaven.
The sun, moon, and stars will crumble to dust. The sky will disappear like a scroll being rolled up, and the stars will fall like leaves dropping from a vine or a fig tree.(Isaiah 34:4) Good News Translation
Isaiah compares falling of the stars to the falling of leaves or figs that were just waiting to drop and hit the Earth with a splat. He doesn’t explicitly state that the stars are going to fall to the Earth, but that’s the implication given the analogy of leaves and figs.
Soon after the trouble of those days, the sun will grow dark, the moon will no longer shine, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers in space will be driven from their courses.(Matthew 24:29) Good News Translation
In the days after that time of trouble the sun will grow dark, the moon will no longer shine, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers in space will be driven from their courses.(Mark 13:24-25) Good News Translation
In these passages Jesus is talking with the disciples about future events. He’s not specific about where the stars will fall to, but the mindset of the time was that the earth was below and the heavens were above, so where would they fall BUT to the earth? It’s obvious. Isaiah and Jesus were both referring to plagues of the tribulation. The prophecy of this event from Revelation is more specific and it makes it clear that when the stars fall, they will fall to the earth. Once again this has the analogy of ripe figs, ready to fall at the slightest breeze.
The stars fell down to the earth, like unripe figs falling from the tree when a strong wind shakes it. The sky disappeared like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved from its place.(Revelation 6:13-14) Good News Translation
Timothy, keep safe what has been entrusted to your care. Avoid the profane talk and foolish arguments of what some people wrongly call “Knowledge.” For some have claimed to possess it, and as a result they have lost the way of faith.(1 Timothy 6:20-21) Good News Translation
SciPop is an increasingly flimsy validation of the Star Trek universe which has a prevailing narrative best summed up in the quote below:
Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.– Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think that [iPhones] are a pretty neat idea.
That’s SciPop. What you call “science.” SciPop would have us believe that the Earth is a minute speck in orbit around a minute speck far out in a spiral arm of a nondescript galaxy, and there are billions of other galaxies all larger and more spectacular than ours. In SciPop it’s mathematically impossible for the stars to fall to Earth.
By a totally staggering coincidence, the SciPop cosmological model is mathematically impossible, and 90% of the mass of the universe is missing, precisely because it’s trying to make the prophecy about stars falling to Earth appear to be ridiculous, let alone impossible. It’s an exercise in inductive reductive circular reasoning.
The express purpose of astronomy is to make it seem as if the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy is ridiculous. Unfortunately this means that astronomy has had to become ridiculous. Who are you to believe? And why would you take our word for it?
- IF God cannot lie,
- THEN the Bible is true,
- THEREFORE if the Bible says that the stars will fall to the earth,
- BUT SciPop says that this is impossible,
- THEN SciPop is wrong.
This isn’t a joke.
- Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
- believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
- confess your sin.
