M87* is about 11 Feet Wide

The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

(Proverbs 3:19) KJV

The worldwide network of telescopes used by mainstream science (SciPop) to image M87* have constructed a picture of a piece of Obsidian glass approximately 11 feet wide at a distance of 17,364 light years.

Yesterday we considered the possibility that the supposed supermassive black hole M87* is a piece of Onyx, simply because Onyx is black, and Sardonyx is listed in the Bible as one of the foundations of heaven. That’s circumstantial, but by using deduction we can explore the depths of this possibility. The passage above is one of the clues that we must examine, specifically, the Hebrew word translated as established.

Established: כּוֹנֵ֥ן – koon

  • to be firm:
  • Kal not used; to stand, Arab. to exist, hence Pil. כּוֹנֵ֥ן
    1. to set up, fix, conform, establish.
    2. to prepare, fashion, form.
    3. to adjust, direct, aim; abs. to prepare, dispose, apply oneself, Job 8:8; Is. 51:13
  • Pul.
    • to be established, Ps. 37:33
    • to be prepared, Eze. 28:13

This not only sounds like something solid, but something which has an orderly arrangement. This is clearly describing the establishment of heaven as the firmament with the twelve foundations listed in Revelation 21:

And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

(Revelation 21:19-20) KJV

If M87* is a fragment of crystalline material from this series, such as Obsidian, we can use the density and mass to calculate its volume. Once we have the volume we can calculate its approximate size.

M87* Radius

Mass of M87* [kg]47.47
Density of Obsidian [g/cm3 (t/m3)]2.35
Volume [m3]20.2
Radius [m]1.69

A radius of 1.69 meters is a diameter about 11 feet.


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