I’ve learned a lot working on this blog. Certain realities which I used to take for granted, which “science” had handed down to me from time immemorial, I have conclusively determined as fraudulent. Modern pseudoscience is an imposing edifice, but once you examine it closely, small cracks in the structure are readily observable. These cracks are in the very foundations of the structure. Pry at them too thoroughly, and you will soon discover that what once seemed to you a solid castle of facts was little more than a house of cards, cards that are now tumbling down to reveal the Truth they previously obscured.
In an earlier post in which I categorically disproved the time-honored distortion of Heliocentrism, astute readers informed me of the Scriptural evidence that the world is, in fact, not round. Naturally, this piqued my interest, since a strict and literal reading of the Holy Bible is the only correct and proper method of doing so. If one is not prepared to accept the entirety of the Word of God as Truth, one should prepare for damnation. Not only is that good moral advice, that is good science.
A ready perusal of the Bible uncovers numerous quotes like the following:
“Who shakes the earth out of its place, And its pillars tremble;” [Job 9:6]
“And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.” [Revelation 7:1]
Clearly, the Bible states that the world has corners. But how can a sphere have corners?
How could a flat Earth exist? Too many people have gone around the world for it to be dismissed as a government hoax. Fortunately, when my research uncovered the Flat Earth Society website, the question was resolved. Their logo is a chart of our planet. The world is circular, not spherical. The circumference of this circle runs along the Antarctic continent, roughly a million miles long. The center of this circle is the North Pole.
The depth of this circle is unclear to me, as is the cause of earthquakes. Perhaps those are, indeed, caused by some form of plate tectonics (assuming the Earth is 20 miles or so deep before Hell begins); perhaps the tumult and riot of the Inferno causes them, as souls in pain howl and bang and try to escape to the land of the living.
Clearly, my researches into the Flat Earth Society website are incomplete. Many of the questions my friends in the pseudoscientific camp will ask find ready answers there. To quote but one example:
Water. Regardless of which train of thought you follow, it covers over seventy-five percent of our planet’s surface. And the atmosphere, also a fluid, covers the entire surface. The difference is why. While flat-Earthers know that the ocean is really just a large bowl, (with great sheets of ice around the edges to hold the ocean back), and the atmosphere is contained by a large dome, the backwards “round-Earth” way of thinking would have you believe that all those trillions of gallons of water and air just “stick” to the planet’s surface.
Conventional thinking would suggest that the water would just run down the sides of the Earth (to use the analogy again, like droplets running down the sides of a beach ball) and fall into outer space, while the air would dissipate. Using the earlier mentioned idea of “gravitational charge” gives some credibility to the theory. If the fluids were static, then exposure to the gravitational field for a long enough period of time would allow their molecules to align themselves with and be pulled in by the field.
But fluids are not static, especially not in the atmosphere and oceans. Great ocean currents run both at the surface and deep below, carrying water across huge basins, keeping the solution far from stagnant. Jet streams of air travel at hundreds of miles per hour through the atmosphere. And windblown rainclouds carry vast quantities of evaporated seawater across miles of ground, releasing their load far from its starting point. Water or air that (according to “round-Earth” theory) starts on one side of the planet could end up completely on the other side in a matter of only a few days. With all this turbulence and motion, if the world were round, the oceans should all fall “down” into the sky, leaving the planet dry and barren, and the atmosphere would simply float away. Why, just look at the moon. It is round, like a ball, and yet it has no atmosphere at all.
Other evidence exists, if one looks carefully. For example, here is a website offering “satellite” imagery (in actuality, images photographed using images reflected off the watery ether that surrounds our world; or, at best, waterproof cameras inserted into the edge of that ether). Note the name of the website: “Flat Earth Images.” Clearly a believer in Truth in advertising.
Another example is Tom Friedman. Although a Leftist, he acknowledged the truth of the Flat Earth position when he published a book titled, “The World is Flat.” I have not read this book, but I understand that its main subject is how God’s gift of technology has helped Man to see the fundamental flatness of Creation; mountains and valleys exist, yes, but the world is a disk, and it, like computers and automobiles, is a gift of God. Tom Friedman is the only leftist I know of to publicly state these truths; to my way of thinking, if he could be converted, anyone could.
Armed with this newfound knowledge, and with a zealous desire to show others the correct way of thinking, I attempted to convey my doubts to others. I called the false teachings of modern pseudoscience into question at every turn.
Reaction has been mixed, ranging from widespread agreement amongst those willing to accept the Truth of Christianity to widespread disdain amongst the Atheists, Darwinists, and secularist Islamists constituting a majority of the modern Democrat party. Why these “reality-based” types are unable to question their assumptions is beyond me. None of them have ever been to Antarctica, or to outer space; none of them invented toaster ovens or refrigerators. Yet they all claim to be experts on every subject, although a closer scrutiny reveals their only true expertise to lie in the rubbish heap known as “science.” From DNA cloning to Russian space stations, science produces the worst of lies and sins. Yet these people embrace it, and try to use it as a cudgel with which to wallop the God-fearing among us.
Nothing that they say or do can change the Truth one jot or one tittle, however. The world is flat, my friends. God has made it thus, and Man cannot unmake it.
What has any of this to do with the Brownback campaign, you ask? President Brownback will control our education department. Unless Brownback wins the election, and radically alters America’s course in favor of Christianity, Justice, and Truth, millions of children will continue to learn the lies and fallacies of the left: that the world is round; that scientists invent things without God’s guiding Grace; that the Earth orbits the Sun; that their grandparents are monkeys, their great-grandparents were rats, their great-great-grandparents were fish, and their great-great-great-grandparents were pond scum. Some among us are truly bungled, botched, and bothersome; but one must have faith that Hope will see us through, and Truth will find a way. I, for one, am unshakeable in my convictions: The Bible is Truth, God has not forsaken America, and He will ensure that we remain a Christian country by choosing Brownback as His chief servant.
God bless America, and God keep the world flat, free, and beautiful.
