One of the most well known events in the science vs. faith fiasco was a match up between Ken Ham and Bill Nye. The debate between was on the question "Is Creation A Viable Model of Origins?"
Atheist science troll (AST), scientifically illiterate science worshiper (SISW) and SciPop devotee are three kinds of interaction that you can expect if you discuss science and the Bible on social media.
In popular science (SciPop) the reason why we can detect a distant brightness is because opposing forces, the solar wind pushing out and interstellar forces pushing in, cause glowing Hydrogen to accumulate, like foam on a beach.
We can deduce that the firmament, a rigid sphere of crystal on the edge of space which has been detected by the Voyager and New Horizons space missions, shines as brightly as the sun by comparing two passages.
Let's look at empirical evidence of the firmament. That means direct observation. The most recent confirmation that we have of the presence of the firmament is from the New Horizons space mission.
The image here was taken by Voyager 1 by aiming its cameras back towards the Earth and taking a series of pictures. It is called the Solar System Family Portrait.
After repeated failures to detect dark matter, whoever comes up with an explanation of why we can't detect it which enhances the popular science narrative of godless existence (SciPop), will get a Nobel Prize.
Relative motion is a difficult concept to teach most people. They're convinced that the success of space missions and the ability to land a space craft on a comet proves heliocentricity.
The best illustration of how we can switch back and forth between different frames of reference, such as heliocentric and Geocentrospheric, is an interactive guide to the flight path of the Voyagers.
The distance to the firmament (heaven), from the center of the Earth, is approx. 1,736,441 light years. But we (that's me and the Holy spirit) would appreciate it if someone would check our math.
