Seismological Data

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

(Luke 16:19-31) KJV

Seismological data shows different zones of density within the Earth which match the description of Earth’s interior given us by Jesus in Luke 16:19-31, the parable of the rich man and Lazarus.

The P-wave shadow zone is used to find the boundaries between the zones of density. P-waves can propagate through solid, liquid and vapor, so the waves themselves don’t tell us much about the nature of the material in each zone. This data has been woven into the popular science narrative (SciPop) by arbitrarily designating the great gulf shadow zone as a liquid outer core. Why?

The reasons why are, firstly, the corrupt human heart and the desire to be free from the punishment for sin. Secondly, the Earth has a magnetic field and dipole moment which has to be accounted for. We’ll attempt to explain.

Every Christian intellectual needs to understand the reasons why mainstream science (SciPop) doesn’t have hell at the center of the Earth or a great gulf of open space between the surface of hell and the lower mantle.
