"And therefore as it is possible, that in the remote regions of the fixed stars, or perhaps far beyond them, there may be some body absolutely at rest; but impossible to know..." Sir Isaac Newton speculating about the firmament.
Scientific Christians who want to be regarded as "real scientists" are using math to resolve the Bible with the popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop) which was designed to make the Bible look stupid.
It's claimed that since Einstein made a prediction about gravitational time dilation this proves relativity. If gravitational time dilation was described by Moses about 1,400 years BC, does it prove the Bible?
There's no question that the cosmological system described in the Bible is Geocentric. The problem with the word Geocentric, and with Geocentrism in general, is that it's irrevocably yoked to the flat Earth insanity.
Occam's razor is cited as a reason why the heliocentric theory triumphed over Geocentrism, because it was too complicated to diagram the motion of the stars that we watch from the Earth.
Once upon a time we (that's me and the Holy spirit) did an experiment: we put God to the test. If God is going to supply our every need, we figured, and we need a book on astronomy, then God needs to give us one.
On earth 1 day is equal to 1,000 years at the distance of the firmament, but at the firmament 1 day is equal to 1,000 years on earth. It's a paradox. It is also mathematically perfect in 2 Peter 3:8.
Programming a computer to plot an ellipse with one focus isn't the same as providing a physical cause for why planetary orbits are elliptical. This is an example of scientific sleight-of-hand.
We've been defending the Geocentrospheric model in the Twitter community since December 25th, 2015. It can't be refuted. There's a simple reason why: It's Biblically accurate.
If Einstein's prediction of gravitational time dilation proves relativity, then does Moses description of it in about 1,400 Bible?
