There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.(1 Corinthians 15:40-41) KJV
The peer review driven popular science space narrative (SciPop) starts with the premise that the Bible is wrong and the Earth is billions of years old. It continues with the idea that stars are distant suns and galaxies.
This started with Galileo. As such, the SciPop narrative is based on believing that we know the following:
- The nature of stars,
- the distance to the stars.
We don’t know either. Eliminate the assumption of heliocentricity from our geometry and the stars, and stellar objects we call galaxies, suddenly become dramatically closer and thus far less massive.
A powerful part of the SciPop narrative is to use the words sun and star as synonyms. Most definitions of the sun start with something along these lines: The Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System. It’s such a powerful deception that Synonymy is considered to be a major deity in the atheist pantheon.
This is a blind spot for most Christians because there’s no clearer statement of Geocentrospheric cosmology than the passage above, but it’s really not a problem because salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ, it’s not determined by whether you believe a heliocentric or Geocentrospheric cosmology. Given what the Bible teaches us about the cosmos, however, we’re very confident in promoting a Geocentrospheric cosmology.
- There’s only one sun, it looks like a giant ball of fusing plasma that has the power to roast you alive.
- Stars are minute specks of light that you can barely see in the night sky.
- The sun and the stars are obviously not the same.
