So many sixes it’s making my head spin

Earth’s orbital plane is known as the ecliptic plane, and Earth’s tilt is known to astronomers as the obliquity of the ecliptic, being the angle between the ecliptic and the celestial equator on the celestial sphere. Earth currently has an axial tilt of about 23.4°.

An axial plane is based on the 90° pivot. With that in mind I find it rather strange to consider that the opposing tilt of the earth equates to a rather interesting number. What I mean by that is this; if we were to subtract 23.4° from 90°, we get exactly 66.6°.

Hhmmm…

What a wonderful coincidence.

But, it doesn’t stop there. According to Live Science, we are also carrying a velocity of roughly 66,600 MPH as we fly through space around the sun.

Hhmmm….

What another wonderful coincidence.

Or even better… what about the fact that the curvature of the earth for one mile squared equates to exactly 0.666 ft. If you don’t believe me you can do the math yourself using this program.

I bet, if you decided to not stop there and continued to look at the math behind how the secular world describes their godless creation, the coincidences wouldn’t stop here.

But then again, who are we kidding… right? I clearly am just ignorant.

If you want to believe you are flying through space at 66,600 miles per hour around the sun while on an opposing tilt of 66.6° with a radial drop of 0.666 ft per mile squared under your feet, you go right head.

I think I’ll put my feet on the bible instead of the wisdom of secular men, thank you very much.

1 Chr. 16:30: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable.”

Ps. 93:1: “Thou hast fixed the earth immovable and firm …”

Ps. 96:10: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable …”

1858a9e

Now, don’t get me wrong… I do realize that there are plenty of verses that suggest the world does move. For example:

Ps. 99:1: “The Lord reigneth … let the earth be moved.”

Job 26:7: “He … hangeth the earth upon nothing.

Is. 24:19: “the earth is moved exceedingly.”

With that in mind I am neither arguing for or against the motion of the earth. All I am getting at here is the simple fact that we are so quick to settle on the side of the secular world when it comes to Biblical creation. If we are so quick to stand up against things like the theory of evolution, why then would describing the creation of earth and the celestial bodies above be any different? Rather than standing on the truth of God’s word, we have given the Biblical attributes of cosmology over to the wisdom of men, diminishing that portion of the Bible to allegory rather than truth.

Just think about it.

If Satan really is in charge right now, and his goal is to deceive men into believing that God does not exist, the quickest way to do something like that would be to distort their view on creation itself.

But… I digress.

I’m clearly just ignorant. All of those numbers above are clearly just a coincidence.

Global Warming and the overwhelming impact of sin

So, Sarah and I were talking last night about a few things and the main topic that came up that seemed to overshadow most of the conversation was global warming. The thing however, is that it wasn’t talked about in a way that most people might consider.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I do think that global warming is real when you stop to consider that creating friction on a surface does generate heat. And when the populous becomes too much for the surface of earth, it makes sense that the surface would warm as a result of the activity. Couple that will our need to pollute and the concept of warming makes sense without the need for a collage degree.

However, I propose another suggestion; one that is not new, but rather an emphasis on an older concept. When we look at the old testament of the bible there were quite a few times when sin became so overwhelming that God did something drastic to douse the flames. The flood, Sodom and Gomorra, and the Tower of Babel… just to name a few.

With those in mind one can’t help but consider the current world status of our climate, the devastating weather patterns beginning to emerge, and the growing sins of this world and how they have managed to mirror almost exactly one another. When we consider the world events starting to unfold just in the last 6 months, it is hard to sit back and not scratch your head and realize that it might actually have something to do with our overwhelming acceptance of sin.

But, I want to take it a step further. Our conversation last night also led into what we see currently covered on mainstream news here in the States. And my only question is this; if there is this much happening across the globe, why is it that CNN, FOX, ABC, NBC, and all the other news affiliates like the NY Times seem to only be concerned with what is happening on Trump’s twitter account.

I think the funny thing is that I don’t find that ironic at all. In today’s world that is what is to be expected, I guess.

Anyway, keep being ignorant. Keep on living life without a repentant heart. It totally has nothing to do with the current state of things… I promise.

And who knows… maybe tomorrows update on Trump’s twitter will shape the world as we know it.
