The sun still rises, and it still goes down, going wearily back to where it must start all over again.(Ecclesiastes 1:5) Good News Translation
Space is curved. What does that really mean? Quite simply space is spherical and Earth is at the center. It’s empirical. The stars are, on average, evenly distributed around the Earth no matter which direction we look. The edge of space, where we believe the Quasars are located, is the same distance away from us in every direction. The Sun, Moon and stars orbit the Earth on curved paths with the Earth either at the center of their orbit, or at one focus of an elliptical orbit. This is empirical.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
Einstein made the same assumption that Newton did: that space-time is the cause of gravity. The proportional relationship between space-time and gravity is an effect we observe, not a cause. The observation is summarized as Newton’s law of universal gravitation. It’s circumstantial evidence. It’s not the cause of gravity. Be that as it may, mainstream science (SciPop) is totally on board with it because it, supposedly, negates the need for the universe to have a supernatural cause, which is the whole point of SciPop.
What cemented Einstein’s conceptualization of the curvature of space was that he made a prediction based on the idea and subsequent experiments showed the prediction to be correct: He predicted that light from a star would be bent by space-time as it passed close to a massive body such as the Sun. This is called gravitational lensing. The first confirmation of this is rather flimsy but there have been subsequent confirmations so we accept the findings.
The idea, though, is that gravity causes space-time to be curved in such a way as to cause elliptical planetary orbits, and the universe is like a sheet of spandex.
Einstein warped the observation that light bends. This is how we get hasbeen lecturers teaching that the universe is a sheet of spandex.
Einstein’s idea was that gravity, like that caused by the mass of the Earth, warps space-time around it. This gets a little complicated because Einstein also said that space-time causes gravity. His chickens and eggs are in continual flux.
The way that SciPop works is that, because there are experimental results which confirm Einsteins prediction, it is taken to mean that he was right. People talk about it as if it’s proof of relativity. It’s not proof of relativity, that’s scientific sleight-of-hand, it’s proof that gravity bends light.
It gets worse. Because Einstein’s rationalization dovetails perfectly with the THE NARRATIVE of godless existence, the confirmation of the prediction is taken to mean that everything Einstein ever said was right (except the bits which contradict THE NARRATIVE, but these are ignored) and he’s lifted up to the status of idol.
Now the narrative is that relativity has been proven, while in fact relativity is an opportunistic rationalization of circumstantial evidence. We observe that gravity bends light. This happens regardless of relativity. Relativity is a load of dingo’s kidneys. We can now announce the death of relativity.
Einstein induced a rationale about space-time causing space to be curved which is what bends light. In his narrative all sources of gravity bend space around them. Unfortunately, what we can see is that there’s only one universe and it’s bent around the source of gravity at the center: Earth. it’s empirical. Whether or not a body like the sun bends space is irrelevant, light is bent by its gravitational field.
Even though Einstein’s prediction of gravitational lensing was confirmed, it doesn’t prove anything at all because it’s circumstantial evidence. Einstein imagined a plausible explanation then induced an experimental test for it. It’s inductive, reductive circular reasoning. Unfortunately the results of the test apply equally well to both Einstein’s induction and Matty’s deduction.
One Glory of the Sun
And there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies; the beauty that belongs to heavenly bodies is different from the beauty that belongs to earthly bodies. The sun has its own beauty, the moon another beauty, and the stars a different beauty; and even among stars there are different kinds of beauty.(1 Corinthians 15:40-41) Good News Translation
Gravity was created on the second day. The first ever gravitational singularity was created in the midst of the deep. It’s an assembly of souls. At that time the universe became spherical. This is why space is curved.
The Earth formed as concentric, spherical layers of sediment deposited around a gravitation singularity on the second day. At the outer edge of the deep layers of crystalline composition formed: the firmament. Open space formed below the firmament as the Earth condensed and contracted. The stars were formed on the fourth day from the inner layers of the firmament. As such, the stars are a wide variety of pieces and fragments of crystalline firmament material (CFM). They reflect the light of the sun.
So what’s the sun? Because it clearly isn’t CFM? Our Biblical law of gravity tells us that gravitational attraction is a property imparted to a body because of a gravitational field. The gravitational attraction is proportional to the mass of the body. This is non-specific regarding the nature of the body or what it’s made of. The sun is composed mostly of Hydrogen. Why? Why did all of the free Hydrogen in the universe accumulate into a ball? The fact that the Sun is spherical and that it has a unique composition tells us that there’s something special about the Sun.
We can now speculate that gravity can be tuned to specific frequencies in order to affect the composition of the body which forms. In the case of the Sun, the gravitational singularity at its core is tuned to the specific frequency of Hydrogen.
We can take the experimental confirmation of Einstein’s prediction of gravitational lensing to deduce that the Sun is a source of gravity. In which case the singularity at the center of the Earth isn’t the only singularity God created.

- believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
- confess your sin.
