There is no New Thing Under the Sun

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

(Ecclesiastes 1:9-10) KJV

You may have heard news that the first ever picture of a black hole has been…. what’s the word? constructed? contrived? concocted? fudged? faked? Made up? Take your pick.

The thing that’s mildly amusing is the deafening silence of the scientifically illiterate science worshipers (SISWs) who assumed that we already had pictures of black holes. Let’s face it, they’re in Star Trek, right? We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) have argued many times on Twitter, before the picture was released, with SISWs who were convinced that there is an abundance of pictures of black holes.

Did you also notice that the first ever picture of a black hole was produced after the death of Stephen Hawking? They couldn’t risk having him pop up and say something rational like:

“That can’t be an image of a black hole…
… I thought that we made the whole thing up.”

– Stephen Hawking (if he was alive)

Black holes were first proposed as the answer to the riddle of why the universe doesn’t collapse in on itself due to the gravitational attraction of the bodies in it. It’s been determined that 90% of the mass of the universe is invisible, but it’s otherwise necessary. Black holes were thought to be a solution, but the problem is that they’d have to be evenly distributed throughout the entire universe. That’s the reason why dark matter was invented. Black holes are theoretical. They’re a mathematical necessity in a false paradigm.


Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

(Matthew 15:14) KJV

M87* is the supposed black hole that we supposedly have a picture of, however, we’ll discuss the way in which M87*’s identity was determined, or if it really was. The problem we have is that we’re a generation or two into popular science (SciPop) as a realm of rampant speculation that is, for the most part, unscientific. Star Trek, on the other hand, is tacitly accepted as being the real universe, so all observations have to be interpreted in such a way as to make them compliant with the Star Trek universe.

One of the largest known supermassive black holes, M87* is located at the center of the gargantuan elliptical galaxy Messier 87, or M87, 53 million light-years (318 quintillion miles) away.

The supposed distance to stars is obtained by using stellar parallax. This consists of taking two measurements six months apart when the earth is, supposedly, on either side of the sun. In the case of the supposed black hole the measurements were taken over the course of 4 days, so there isn’t any measurement of distance.

As each telescope acquired data from the target black hole, the digitized data and time stamp were recorded on computer disk media. Gathering data for four days around the world gave the team a substantial amount of data to process.

We can’t measure the distance to, mass or size of M87*. Choosing to believe that the object identified as M87* has the nature of one of SciPop’s speculative black holes is called a leap of faith. Sadly, no one in SciPop or mainstream culture knows that this leap has been taken. We’ve contrived a picture of a relatively small object in near space.

Gravitational Time Dilation

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

(2 Peter 3:8) KJV

Using 2 Peter 3:8 as an equation for gravitational time dilation we can attempt to calculate the distance to the firmament, otherwise known as the third heaven. This will be helful in evaluating the supposed distance “measurement” that SciPop has for M87*. We have to know what data points we have for gravitational time dilation. This is where it can get a little tricky. Calculating the time dilation between the surface of Earth and heaven is the easy part, we call it Matty’s Paradox, the ramifications of gravitational time dilation (GTD).

Matty’s Paradox

  • IF 1,000 years has passed for each day on Earth since the 2nd day,
    • AND the Earth is about 6,000 years old.
  • THEN a minimum of 2.19 billion years has passed at the radial distance of the firmament (the remote regions of the cosmos) in the same period of time.

Matty’s Paradox Math

Years on Earth6,000
Total Days on Earth2,190,000
1 Day = 1,000 Years2,190,000,000
Years in Heaven2.19E+9
– The minimum age of the remote regions of the cosmos.

The problem is, this doesn’t take into account the time dilation factor between the surface of the Earth and the center, something which we have to factor in if we are going to calculate a distance to the firmament.

Time Dilation Squared

  • At the center of the Earth time isn’t passing.
  • One day In sheol, at a radius of about 4,100 km, is equivalent to:
  • 1,000 years on Earth’s surface, 6371 km.
    • 1,000 years is 365,000 days.
  • One day on Earth is 1,000 years in heaven,
    • the passage of time in heaven (the remote regions of the cosmos) is 365,0002
    • 133,225,000,000 years (1.33E+11 yrs)

This means that the age of the universe is somewhere between 2.19 and 133.2 billion years. Plenty of space to accommodate anything that SciPop can come up with.

6Unknown distanceThe Firmament1,000,000 yrs
– Time dilation data points.

The next part is the tricky part

  • If the difference between Earth’s surface (6371 km) and GPS satellites (26,500 km) is 38,640.00ns/day,
  • and the difference in time between heaven and earth is 1,000 years per day,
  • then 1,000 years divided by 38,640 ns is the factor we can use to find the distance to the firmament.

Distance to the Firmament (from the center of the Earth)

Convert ns to days1.16E-14

Divided by GPS time dilation in days1.63E-04

Total distance (km)1.64E+19
AU in km1.50E+08
Astronomic Units1.10E+11
AU in Light Years6.32E+04
Distance to the firmament in LY1.74E+06
– The distance to the firmament (from the center of the Earth) is approx. 1,736,441 light years.

A light year is about 63,241 AU. This means that the firmament is about 1,736,441 light years away. M87* has to be somewhere within this range, but it’s clear that the SciPop narrative of it being 53 million light years away is false. That means it’s not supermassive, either.


Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

(Matthew 13:52) KJV

We have taken a systematic approach to pulling down the stronghold of astronomy. It is the tag-team partner of the ancient Earth that is required by the process of biological evolution. The essential purpose of astronomy has two parts:

  1. to refute the possibility that the stars could fall to earth as the Bible prophesies,
  2. to dovetail with the narrative from geology about an earth old enough to give time for biological evolution.

A distance measurement was not part of the data gathered for M87*. If the object pictured is less than 1.7 million light years away, rather than the 53 million light years stated, what does this mean?

The narrative which has developed is neither testable nor falsifiable, which means it’s unscientific. There’s no way to test the hypothesis that the object which we’re calling a black hole is actually a black hole. It’s only a black hole if you accept the premise of the SciPop paradigm. If you don’t, then we have a picture of a piece of Onyx, or something, silhouetted against some glowing gas.

Space Junk

Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

(Leviticus 19:36) KJV

You should also consider this: the algorithm used to compile the data which generated the image contained upwards of 65,000 lines of code. Algorithms are used to provide a desired outcome. With that much code available, it would be possible to produce the same image from the last 10 years of accounting data from Chuck E Cheese restaurants.

Consider this too: the supposed first ever image of a black hole looks similar to previous artist impressions of what a black hole looks like. That’s what you can do with 65,000 lines of code: make whatever you want, based on what you already believe.

There aren’t any black holes or dark matter. The missing mass of the universe is the firmament. It’s a wall on the edge of space with the gravitational attraction that maintains the universe.


  1. Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
    • believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
  2. confess your sin.
