It is he who sits above the circle of the earth,(Isaiah 40:22) ESV
and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers;
who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;
If God’s sitting on the circle of the Earth, and God’s throne is in heaven, then “the circle of the Earth” describes something orbiting the Earth, not the Earth itself. The circle of the Earth isn’t Discworld.
Based on our discussion of the events in 2 Kings 20, 2 Chronicles 32 and Isaiah 38 when the sun went backwards, an event which was observed around the world, we can do some simple deduction using the first Principle of Principia Mattymatica to test the hypothesis that God’s creation is Geocentrospheric.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
God can’t lie and the Bible is true.Principia Mattymatica – Principle I
- IF the Bible is true,
- THEN the sun went backwards.
- In a Geocentrospheric system this isn’t a problem.
The whole of Christianity quakes in fear at the prospect of having to accept that our beloved Bible is without any doubt Geocentrospheric from the inception of gravity all the way up until the Lord comes down to dwell at the center of creation with his people. Let’s face it, for generations their theologians have been trying to make the Bible compatible with the mainstream science paradigm (SciPop) which is heliocentric, so that they wouldn’t have to. The thing is, salvation has nothing to do with whether your cosmology is helio- or geo- centric. The only thing that matters is believing in Jesus Christ.
Once you’ve accepted Jesus Christ it’s largely immaterial what you believe about the nature of the cosmos. Stop worrying about it.
You might be afraid that if you tell someone that you believe that the Earth is at the center of the universe they’ll think you’re stupid. That’s what’s supposed to happen.
You should not fool yourself. If any of you think that you are wise by this world’s standards, you should become a fool, in order to be really wise.(1 Corinthians 3:18) Good News Translation
