The compass point on the face of the depth is the location of a gravitational singularity. It's refered to as the foundation(s) of the earth. The circle that the compass metaphorically draws is the location of the firmament (heaven).
Gravity was created on the second day. Matter space and time existed before gravity was created. This has profound significance for theoretical Physics but we're going to ignore that for now.
Knowing how the firmament is constructed lets us interpret scripture and account for empirical observations of the cosmos, including 90% of the mass of the universe that mainstream science (SciPop) can't find.
The third clue that helps us to deduce the creation of gravity comes from a verse in Proverbs 8. It's part of a passage which runs from verse 22-31 and is a synopsis of the account of creation.
In the beginning the deep was formless. The subsequent account of creation shows how form and function go through several rounds of increasing order and complexity. The first was to take on the form of a sphere.
They key to understanding the inception of gravity as the creative act of the second day is the synchronicity between stretching out the heavens and establishing the foundations of the Earth. One command did both.
Gravity is fundamental to the working out of God's plan for creation. So how on Earth did we manage to deduce that gravity was created on the second day? There are three parts to this logic:
We find that there are passages of scripture which, though appearing to be metaphorical, describe actual physical conditions or chemical reactions. These misunderstood passages are dismissed as flowery poetic language.If a baby needs milk to survive before it can tolerate solid food, has this been patterned after the processes which took place on the first and second days of the creation of the universe?
We think of Earth as down and the sky as up. Heaven above and hell below. Whatever happened on the second day has to allow for the eventual formation of heaven and hell. These aren't spiritual concepts.
It's March 14 which could be written as 3.14, the mathematical constant Π which expresses the relationship between circumference and diameter. Atheist science trolls (ASTs) dismiss the Bible because, supposedly, it has the wrong value for Π.
