People accuse us of being anti-science. We understand why. On the face of it we've evaluated the scientific method, found it wanting, and rejected it. We exposed the logical fallacy of scientific truths.
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.
Logic, no matter how rigorous, breaks down when we're speculating about the origin of the universe from the starting point of having rejected the truth: God revealed testimony about our origin.
The peer review driven popular science space narrative (SciPop) starts with the premise that the Bible is wrong and the Earth is billions of years old. It continues with the idea that stars are distant suns and galaxies.
We have to take a step back and remember that we are on popular science turf (SciPop) when we start talking in their terms about the cosmos. SciPop wants you to believe that the stars are distant suns and galaxies.
Galileo’s bluff is the starting point for THE NARRATIVE of heliocentricity. It’s an induced rationalization of evidence to fit the premise, it’s not proof of heliocentricity.
Synonymy has primary and secondary roles. The primary is to make it seem as if the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy is impossible. In which case, if the Bible is the inerrant word of an omnipotent God, it's a fraud.
If it's good enough for Star Trek, it's good enough for popular science (SciPop). Besides, if you've seen it in a Star Trek episode you already believe it's true. Slam dunk.
Stellar spectroscopy conveniently ignores the possibility that stars are reflecting sunlight and incorporates itself into one of the most intricate examples of circular reasoning ever devised. Circular reasoning is a problem in science where people make up fiction that suits their narrative, then use the fiction to rationalize more fiction. A good example is heliocentricity. …
It's ironic that the period of history that brought us the scientific advances of Galileo, Kepler and Newton is called The Enlightenment, because this was when the human race plunged into darkness.
