# Math

The Lord wants weights and measures to be honest and every sale to be fair.

(Proverbs 16:11) Good News Translation

Mainstream science (SciPop) breaks down when you start doing math. Ironic isn’t it. Math is regarded as the strength of SciPop, a reason why the faith crowd looks so stupid in comparison.

Here’s something you have to understand about math: it’s like mixing paint. Imagine that we have an empirical observation – white paint. We also have an inductive rationalization of the observation (a theory) which is tailored it to fit our narrative – black paint. We can use math to mix the paint to get exactly the right shade of grey and then say that the math proves our theory. It’s math so everyone believes us. The empirical observation is still white, the theory is still black, but everyone is so delighted by the grey color of the math that they don’t care.

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

Matty’s Razor

The SciPop theory of gravitation requires that every particle in a body is contributing to its gravitational attraction, but the math only works if you assume that all of the mass is concentrated at the center. Curious. What’s truly ironic is that the nature of gravity in Matty’s Paradigm is perfectly aligned with the math of gravity. Isn’t that funny?
