The Circle of the Earth

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. (Daniel 12:3)

If we use deduction then we can look at the simple fact that Earth is a globe, and conclude that the meaning of the word circle in Isaiah 40:22 is sphere. In this case the Hebrew word translated as circle also means sphere.

Hypothesis 21

We use the change from formless to formed, the appearance of the orientation under and above, and the analogy of a drawing compass having a focus and circumference to deduce that gravity was created on the second day.

The ISS isn’t Zero-G

If Earth is the center of gravity of the observable universe, then the observable universe is in the gravitational field of Earth. The strength of the field is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from Earth.


The Bible contains an extensively developed doctrine of gravity but it's not new, it's always been there. It may be new to you, but it was here already, long ago; it was here before our time.

Above and Below

A recurring theme in scripture is heaven above and Earth below. Orientation occurs for the first time on the second day. It's an ordering of the universe which occurred in response to the creation of gravity.

Flat Earth Induction

There's a side effect to the creation of gravity that's going to upset some people: if the Earth formed around a gravitational singularity then it's spherical. It's impossible for the Earth to be flat.
