We can use Principle VI to deduce the nature of stars from current scientific research and what we know about the firmament, a rigid sphere made up of at least 12 layers of different crystal structures.
Theoretical Evidence of the Firmament
Current cosmological models of the universe appear to show that 80% of the mass of the universe is missing. There's no physical reason why the cosmos maintains its current stable state.
Empirical Evidence of the Firmament
Let's look at empirical evidence of the firmament. That means direct observation. The most recent confirmation that we have of the presence of the firmament is from the New Horizons space mission.
90% of Your Mass is Missing
We (that's me and the Holy spirit) have an illustration from Physics that shows how Biblical literalists don't have an inkling of the extent to which the Bible can be taken literally.
The image here was taken by Voyager 1 by aiming its cameras back towards the Earth and taking a series of pictures. It is called the Solar System Family Portrait.
Black Holes and Dark Matter
All current cosmological models show that somewhere between %80-85 of the mass of the universe is missing. Based on our understanding of particle physics we can move this number up to %90. Where is it?
The Distance to the Firmament
The distance to the firmament (heaven), from the center of the Earth, is approx. 1,736,441 light years. But we (that's me and the Holy spirit) would appreciate it if someone would check our math.
Gravitation Inside a Blah, Blah, Blah
We talk about the firmament as a sphere of rigid crystal on the edge of space. Popular science's (SciPop) second cousin astronomy exists for the express purpose of making it seem as if the presence of a firmament is impossible.
The Brightness of the Firmament
The creation of gravity and formation of the firmament was to establish a place, heaven, where God would dwell in perpetual light because the firmament is bright like the sun, as we see from Daniel.
The Iridium Anomaly
We finished a step-by-step deconstruction of the Paleozoic and Mesozoic, but there’s another issue that we’re going to account for: the Iridium anomaly.
