The Foundation of the Earth

Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.

(Psalms 104:5) KJV

The phrase “the foundation(s) of the earth/world” carries a lot of meaning. We conduct a systematic study of the phrase.

Matty’s Paradigm is a scientific theory of creation. As such, we’ll be as scientific as possible by identifying key concepts and having clear definitions of them. The foundation of the earth is one of the things that it’s possible to be very specific about.

The phrase foundation(s) of the earth/world occurs in several places throughout the scripture and the various ways in which it’s used carry a lot of meaning. We can understand all of this meaning with a systematic study of the phrase. The first thing to notice is that the phrase occurs in both Hebrew and Greek, as singular or plural, and incorporates either earth or world.

The foundation of the Earth and its variations in Hebrew and Greek give us first cause, a doctrine of gravity which includes a unified field theory, and a basis for the plan of redemption within the scientific realm of Physics.

– Variations of the phrase “foundation of the earth/world” hold a lot of meaning.

The variations in usage carry so much meaning that we can only begin to realize all of by by carrying out a systematic study of the several combinations. This is a work in progress but we’re going to publish it in its unfinished form, as a series, because of the value there is in having this work be available for comment and discussion.

Jesus answered him, “I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where the Jews always meet, and in secret I have said nothing.

(John 18:20) NKJV
