(celestial realm, cosmos, observable universe or space)
The stars fought from the sky;(Judges 5:20) Good News Translation
as they moved across the sky,
they fought against Sisera.
Most of the space between the firmament and Earth is the cosmos or observable universe. There’s something very odd about the cosmos: there’s a disconnect between what we can see vs. what we believe about it.
Mainstream science (SciPop) has a lot to say about space. So much, in fact, that it gives the impression that it knows what it’s talking about. THE NARRATIVE, that peer review has decided that you have to believe, is that general relativity proves that the universe doesn’t have an absolute frame of reference. Unfortunately, the observable universe is viewed from our absolute frame of reference on the Earth. It’s empirical and it’s finite. Whatever else you choose to believe about the universe beyond that is theoretical, which means, imaginary.
The observable universe is a spherical region of the Universe comprising all matter that can be observed from Earth at the present time.– Observable universe, definition Wikipedia
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
Heliocentric or Geocentrospheric?
People today, almost universally, mistakenly believe two things: one is that the Earth and it’s solar system are drifting through a vast, possibly infinite universe. The second is that we observe heliocentricity. This means that people today can’t connect words with meanings. The only way to observe heliocentricity is if you were on the sun.
Heliocentric or Geocentrospheric?
- IF you were on the Sun you’d be observing heliocentricity,
- SINCE you’re not, you’re on the Earth, you’re observing Geocentrosphericity.
It has to do with something called frame of reference which is synonymous with point of view. Think about it like this:
Frame of Reference
- We’re on the Earth.
- We observe the cosmos from the Earth.
- We observe that the cosmos orbits the Earth every day.
- Our frame of reference is empirically, and inherently, Geocentrospheric.
Heliocentricity isn’t empirical, it’s theoretical. You may not realize it but theory is the scientific word for faith. The frame of reference of the modern mind is somewhere far out in space, in the western spiral arm of the galaxy. This is a masterpiece of psychological manipulation which began with Copernicus, the man who wrote the first episode of Star Trek.
Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.– Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think that [iPhones] are a pretty neat idea.
Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.– Faith, definition
And there are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies; the beauty that belongs to heavenly bodies is different from the beauty that belongs to earthly bodies. The sun has its own beauty, the moon another beauty, and the stars a different beauty; and even among stars there are different kinds of beauty.(1 Corinthians 15:40-41) Good News Translation
The SciPop cosmological model is derived from a ridiculously simple piece of scientific sleight-of-hand: using the words star and sun as synonyms. This isn’t what the Bible says, there’s only one sun and it’s obviously different from the stars. The sun is a giant ball of glowing plasma that we can’t look at. Stars are minute specks of light which we can barely see. They’re obviously different.
Stars aren’t distant suns and galaxies which emit light. They are mostly CFM (crystalline firmament material), including sapphire, ruby and other colored crystals, which occupy the area of space called the Kuiper Belt. They reflect sunlight. Their mineral composition affects the spectra of the light that they reflect, and this is one reason why they may appear to be red or blueshifted.
- Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
- believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
- confess your sin.
The sun, moon, and stars will crumble to dust. The sky will disappear like a scroll being rolled up, and the stars will fall like leaves dropping from a vine or a fig tree.(Isaiah 34:4) Good News Translation
The firmament is the source of gravitational interaction which is keeping the stars in space. According to prophesy, at some point in the future the firmament will be rolled up like a scroll and the stars will fall to Earth. If the firmament is a thin sheet of crystal then this is physically possible, it’s not just flowery poetic language. Since we can see the stars then they are below the firmament.
Is God lying? The express purpose of modern astronomy is to make you think that the fulfillment of prophecy is impossible. In Matty’s Paradigm the stars will fall to the Earth when the source of gravitational interaction holding them in place, the firmament, is removed. Just as the Bible says. This isn’t possible in the SciPop cosmological model which, ironically, is what mainstream Christianity built its theology on. Go figure…
