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.
The main evidence for the expansion of the universe is something called redshift. Redshift is the tendency for the light of far away objects to be composed of wavelengths at the red end of the spectrum.
The Expansion of the Universe
The expansion of the universe isn't a testable hypothesis so it's not scientific. The theory is accepted because it compliments the mainstream science narrative of godless existence (SciPop).
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 Hubble Constant
Sir Edwin Hubble was one of the first to suggest that the apparent red shift of stellar objects is caused by the doppler effect as the universe expands and the stars become further and further away.
Redshift highlights the danger of peer review: when speculation enhances the godless existence narrative of popular science, the scientific community will ignore the rules of science.
If you don't understand mainstream science (SciPop) well enough to know that it's not a threat to the Bible, and try to live a Christian life without the truth of the Bible, then you have no armor of light.
Faith is believing in something that you can't see. Math requires believing in concepts that you can't see, and relating them to each other in ways that can't be seen. Math is inductive, reductive, circular faith.
We're told that the new heaven and new Earth, where we'll life for eternity, is a place of perpetual light. We're making the case that this permanent physical separation of light from darkness is the purpose of creation.
ainstream Science (SciPop) is an inductive rationalization of the premise that the universe doesn't require a divine or supernatural cause. All evidence of the supernatural has to be rationalized as something else.
