Well, today is my birthday. And to celebrate my birthday, Sarah and I went all the way out to the McDonald Observatory in West Texas. This place is in the middle of nowhere up on top of some pretty epic mountains. Today, while we were there we not only got to visit the actual telescopes (one of which I had the pleasure of personally controlling manually), but we also observed the sun.
It was a pretty cool experience and I have to admit, the scenery on the way there was breathtaking.
But, I will say… there is one thing that today’s trip got me thinking about. First off, the Polaris Star (also known as the North Star) is stationary in the night sky. I asked the tour guide how it was possible for the North Star to be stationary in the night sky while we traverse the void of space in four directions at once. He managed to not grasp what I was actually asking, and instead mentioned a 5th motion that he posed does change the North Star dramatically. Not only has this motion of Polaris never been observed in the last 6,000 years of recorded cosmology, but it apparently happens every 27,000 years. Again, something that can’t be observed. Makes sense to me.
How can we state a fact like that without the ability to actually observe it? Seems like science… lol.
But, anyway… that isn’t what this blog is about. This blog is about the sun… because, at the end of the day that was what the main part of the tour was about.
So… according to modern day astronomy the sun is a star. Not only that, but it is one of the smallest stars. According to this same modern day teaching of the cosmos the sun was formed prior to the earth and is currently 93 million miles away.
So then… why is it that everything we are taught about the cosmos today is absolutely backwards from what the bible says? According to the bible the earth was made first (not the sun). The Sun and moon were made separate from the stars (meaning the sun is not a star). The sun and moon are both called great lights (according to the Copernican Principle our sun is not great when compared to other stars). The bible also says that the sun, moon, and stars all exist inside of the firmament. And that this firmament is where the birds fly.
So then, which is true?
Are we to believe as Christians that the bible is the inerrant truth (except when it talks about science, which makes it no longer inerrant)? Or, are we going to believe the cabalistic indoctrinations of the Copernican Principle of Heliocentric Cosmological Evolution?
Rather than being long winder, trying to make a lot of points (which I feel I could easily do) I want to just leave you with this thought.
Why is it that literally everything we are told about the cosmos is the exact opposite of what the bible says?
Anyway, my birthday trip was fun. Space exploration is fake. The sun, moon, and stars are close and small. Satellites do not exist beyond the stratosphere (all we are ever shown is CGI and cartoons).
The earth is motionless. I know this to be true because that is what my senses tell me and that is what my bible tells me.
The earth was made first. The one way speed of light is assumed. With that said, everything you have been told about the cosmos is an assumption.
Have a good day, and thanks for reading. For my birthday, my challenge to you is to go back and read what the bible says about the cosmos. What it has to say is very clear… very clear indeed.
