Men have harnessed energy from the volcano, the winds, the tides, the Niagara, they have burrowed the bowels of the Earth for coal, oil, minerals, from which they generate power, they are now considering the possibility of atomic energy, why then have the millions of H.P. engendered by this mighty planet revolving not been utilized? Why have the seekers of perpetual motion given up their quest, if we are perpetually moving?
The theory of the three motions of the Earth and subsequent ‘relativity,’ is the result of trying to cover up one lie by another. They say that as we whirl in London at the rate of nearly eleven miles a minute, we are shooting into space around the Sun at nearly twenty miles a second, and the Sun itself moves around a point in space, at the immense speed of 150,000,000 miles in a year, pulling our poor Earth with him at the added speed—the distance that separates us from the Sun— and in this maddening whirlwind of motions they try to apply Euclid’s spherical trigonometry to locate distances—which data was intended by Euclid to determine fixed points only—with the result that they have brought out wild calculations which have been fostered dogmatically on a gullible World, but are about as infallible as the utterances of Borgia.
Euclid, himself the father of mathematics, believed the Earth to be fixed, so these professing sons of his are but bastards. In the language of the Apostle Paul. “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” How gladly does the writer turn from this bedlam to the XIX Psalm “The Sun, which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of Heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it.”
The one thing the fable of the revolving Earth has done, it has shown the terrible power of a lie, a lie has the power to make a man a mental slave…so that he dares not back the evidence of his own senses. To deny the plain and obvious movement of the Sun he sees before him. When he feels himself sanding on Earth utterly devoid of motion, at the suggestion of someone else he is prepared to accept that he is spinning furiously round. When he sees a bird flying, and gaining over the ground, he is prepared to believe that the ground is really travelling a great number of times faster than the bird, finally, in order to uphold the imagination of a madman, he is prepared to accuse his Maker of forming him a somniferous lie.
The Moral Aspect
Up to now I have only dealt with the physical phase of this; controversy, the moral, however, has had a far greater efl^ect upon Christendom.
Man is fundamentally a logical minded creature, capable of putting two and two together; having been bewitched into believing that the statements of Scripture concerning this World are not true, he has also rejected the statements concerning the next World.
“If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things.” St.John 3:12. Let us remember that “it was the Spirit of Christ in the Prophets that testified beforehand . (1 Peter 1:11), viz., “In the Law of Moses, and in the Prophets, and in the Psalms,” (Luke 24:47) But if ye believe not his (Moses) writings, how shall ye believe My words?” (John 5:47)
The outcome of these “ scientific” lies is that they have broken down the Faith of the World. The Press, which has been foremost in honouring liars and sneering at Scripture, is now pointing a hypocritical linger at Bolshevism as the destroyer of Christianity. Christianity has been destroyed in the so-called Christian Churches, in the Schools, by false Science, by the Press, Bolshevism is merely the harvest of such sowing, the fruit from the root. But the Scriptures will prevail, as the waters of the Deluge, submerging the highest, mountains, “fifteen cubits upward.”
As it is written; “The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken :lo, they have rejected the Word of the Lord ; and what wisdom is in them ?” Jeremiah 8:9
And also; “ Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, and He that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the Heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the Earth by Myself: That frustrateth the tokens of liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; That confirmeth the Word of His servants, and performeth the counsel of His messengers.” Isaiah 44:24-26
The seasons are caused by the Sun’s circuit round the Earth in a spiral ecliptic. In the Winter Solstice (December 21st), the Sun is vertical over the Tropic of Capricorn. Looking South from London, he appears to make a small circuit in the Southern sky, during the same period he is seen to cross the sky at almost overhead in Cape Town, thus causing Summer in the Southern Hemisphere. In the Summer Solstice (June 21st), the Sun is vertical over the Tropic of Cancer, (nearly overhead in London), while looking North from Cape Town, he appears to make a small circuit in the Northern sky, causing Winter in the Southern and Summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The supposition that the seasons are caused by the Earth’s annual motion round the Sun at a mean distance of 92,500,000 of miles, is grotesque.
According to Piazzi the size of the Sun is in proportion to the Earth, “as 329,360 to 1, the diameter exceeds that of the Earth 112 times.” The Earth appears, as Biot says, by this statement, “a mere grain of sand, as compared to the Sun.” This enormous expanse of light focused on a rotating “ grain of sand,” at the distance of 92 millions of miles, would cause the same season throughout it. The paltry few miles, in comparison that separates London from Cape Town could never cause diverse seasons, neither would the distance from London to the Riviera justify the difference in the climate that characterises the two places.
Scriptures Versus The Bible Of The Revolving Earth
The hypothesis introduced by Nicolas Copernicus that the Earth revolves on an imaginary axis has been accepted as truth by the great majority for centuries, it has been taught in the universities, schools, and colleges of the world as a proven fact; often have atheists and others used it to scorn the Divine inspiration of Scripture, and pitiful indeed has been the camouflage adopted by the supposed supporters of Divine Writ – who in reality generally agree with their opponents on this subject – whereas their very attitude was and is a denial that the Architect of the World could have been the Author of the Book they profess to uphold. Let it be stated as clearly as possible that the Scriptures teach that the Earth is round and suspended into space, this was taught in the Word of God centuries before any philosopher geographer or astronomer had discovered it, long before Homer had described the Earth as a disk supported by pillars. Job had correctly defined it as follows:
“ He stretcheth out the North over the empty place, and hangeth the Earth upon nothing.”
In several places in Scripture is the Earth clearly described as being round, for instance in Isaiah 40:22 we read “It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the Earth…” Again in Proverbs 8:27, it is written: “When He prepared the Heavens I (Wisdom) was there; when He set a compass upon the face of the depth.” The Scriptures further teach that it is the Sun that moves round the Earth, and not the Earth round the Sun.
“The Sun also ariseth, and the Sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.”
The theory that the Earth is animated with a diurnal rotation was started with the assumption that the heavenly luminaries are solid planets like our Earth, and not as stated by the Lord God who made them, “Lights” (Genesis 1:14). This erroneous conception gave rise to the hypothesis that it would be easier to revolve one world than a whole heaven of Worlds, but having began their argument with a wrong assumption, it has made them wrong all the way through.
The principal luminaries are opaque as seen during the eclipses, and this has been thought sufficient evidence to prove that they are Worlds like unto our own, but the want of transparency is by no means a proof of weight, a cloud, although opaque, is nevertheless lighter than the air.
The results of recent research prove that the heavenly luminaries are not Worlds, but lights, and should cause all men who have been led to accept as proven Copernicus’ theory of the motions of the Earth, to reconsider this subject. Professor H. H. Turner, of Oxford, made the following statement regarding observations carried out on the brightest Star in the constellation of Orion: “The most exciting discovery as a result of measuring this Star in the winter of 1920, and 1921, and 1922 is that the diameter is changing and it looks as if the Star is palpitating as a heart does.” Which is precisely what a light would do, and not what a body like our Earth could ever possibly do.
It is now acknowledged, and has long been acknowledged that Newton was entirely wrong in his theory of light. “Light,” according to modem definition, “is the result of force causing the waves of ether to vibrate with an almost infinite rapidity. How great that force is can be measured by the fact that light travels round the world eight times in a single second.” This again explains the “ infinite rapidity ” with which the “Lights” (Gen. 1:14) seen in the Heavens travel round the Earth.
“Swift is the Sun in his course, for he compasseth the Heavens round about, and fetcheth his course again to his own place in one day.” (i. Esdras, 4 : 34).
Claudius Ptolemy, the great astronomer, had the advantage over Copernicus in that he was a geographer as well as an astronomer, whereas the latter held some dignities in the cathedral of Thorn in Prussia. As a geographer Ptolemy knew the absolute importance of the stability of the four cardinal points, outside of which topography and accurate orientation are an impossibility. Now the four cardinal points are fixed points in the sky, as acknowledged from time immemorial, hence we are able, by them, to plot correctly any given point on the Earth.
Logically it would be impossible, if the Earth revolved, to make use of the cardinal points as fixed points in the sky, for the relation of any given place in the rotating Earth toward them must continually change. It would be like attempting to plot a point within a fast running wheel of a motor car in relation to a fixed spot outside.
The force of this argument is sometimes evaded by saying that the cardinal points of the compass are imaginary points, but that will never do. The most exacting sciences are based upon the four points of the compass, such as the science of survey, cartography, and, of course, navigation. Millions have trusted their lives upon this reality of the four cardinal points. When the skies are covered the captain at sea has only his compass and his chart to guide him, and the life of one and all on board depends upon the points of the compass being a verity.
“ The North and the South Thou hast created them.” Psalm, 89:12.
Everything in the Tabernacle built by Moses was carefully orientated as also the Temple erected by Solomon, and all its ornaments. And he (Solomon) made a molten sea, ten cubits from one brim to another, it was round all about. It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the North, and three looking toward the West, and three looking toward the South, and three looking toward the East.” (1 Kings 7;23,25.)
The Great Pyramid of Ghizeh also demonstrates how careful the ancients were in the orientation of their buildings, and wherever these are in existence they show no deviation from their original orientation, which fact alone proves that the Earth is not animated with any motion at all.
“The World also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.” Psalm, 93:1
It is claimed that the revolutions of the Earth cause the Sun and constellations to be overhead in different places of the Earth at times worked out in nautical almanacs and used by navigators to determine their bearings, but the same calculations will apply to the rising and setting of the heavenly luminaries. Whether A moves from B, or B from A, the effect can be the same.
The Phoenicians indeed made extensive use of the stars in navigation, and their daring seamanship and skill can be measured by the fact that they spanned the seas as far as Britain to the West, and across the broad Pacific to the American continent to the East, and they believed in the rising and setting of the stars. Mr. J. W. Perry informs us that only one pearl-field in the whole World (the West Australian site at Broom) escaped the vigilance and accurate knowledge of the ancients.
Let us examine the so-called experiments which have been instrumental in causing men to reject the statements of God and the evidence of their own senses in order to uphold the imagination of Copernicus.
Newton maintained that it was possible to prove the rotation of the Earth by the means of balls dropped from a height to the ground, he claimed that the said balls would deviate Westward, but would fall a little to the Eastward of a Pumbline, about half an inch, he thought, at the height of three hundred feet. The reason he gave is this ; “ Since the top of the tower is at a greater distance from the axis of the Earth than its base, the centrifugal force must be greater at the former point than at the latter; the ball, in falling does not lose its impulse, and therefore advances before its plumbline, which strikes the foot of the tower, since it has a less impulse Eastward.” Experiments were carried out to test this theory on January 14, 1680 by Robert Hooke in the presence of a committee appointed for the purpose, when he tried to prove the rotation of the Earth by dropping balls from a height of 160 feet. The results were considered so unsatisfactory that they were not even mentioned in the Philosophical Transactions and were entirely forgotten.
One hundred and twelve years later, a young geometrician in Bologna, Guglielmini, tried the same experiments from the Tower Degli Asinelli, in that city, at a height of 240 feet. These experiments also failed to prove any movement of the Earth.
Benzenberg, a German, performed similar experiments in 1804, from the steeple of the church of St. Michael, in Hamburg. He let fall 30 balls, from the height of 235 feet; the balls deviated from the perpendicular four lines Eastward and line Southward according to the direction of the wind. This was not considered satisfactory.
Benzenberg repeated these experiments in 1805, in a coal pit, at Schlebusch, at the height of 260 feet: and according to the fall of these balls, dropped in a black coal pit, which balls were claimed to have fallen five lines Eastward, Laplace, the French astronomer and atheist, calculated that the chances are 8,000 to 1 that the Earth turns round on its axis. Like the oracle of Delphi the answer was given from the bowels of the Earth, it would not speak from above the ground in the three previous trials.
Seeing that this statement of Laplace was, so to speak, the ex cathedra utterance of “ science ” on this subject, it is interesting to note what Napoleon, who had made him minister of the interior, said of him. “A geometrician of the first rank,” says the emperor, “ he did not reach mediocrity as a statesman. From the first, the consuls became sensible that they had made a mistake in his appointment. He never viewed any subject in its true light; he was always occupied with subtilties; his notions were all problematic.”
Yet Protestants, who reject the infallibility of the Popes with scorn, do nevertheless, accept the infallibility of such men as these with fervour.
But let us assume that the experiments at Schlebusch proved what is claimed for them, then the same principle there evolved must apply to all other bodies that are independent of the Earth. An aeroplane in flight is as much independent of the Earth as the aforesaid dropping balls, and if these have a speed differing from, and independent of the supposed speed of the Earth, then the same characteristic must distinguish the aircraft; its movement also should be independent of that of the Earth; in which case, such an aeroplane travelling Westward to America from England should have the full benefit of America rotating Eastward, and both the continent of America and the aeroplane should meet, one above the other, in about four hours. This statement and the balls dropped by Benzenberg stand or fall together.
But how many are there among those who teach this fable as truth, that have the courage of their convictions to the extent of undertaking this flight, with say five hours supply of petrol? Ptolemy has indeed advanced similar arguments to prove the impossibility of the rotation of the Earth, and to parry these they have been obliged to imagine that the air participates in this motion. If this were the case, the air would obviously travel in one direction, viz., the supposed direction of the Earth, how could any aircraft travel against such a furious blast ? How could such an accomplished feat as sky-writing be carried out in such a tornado?
Ptolemy shows very ingeniously that the Earth must be at the centre of the celestial sphere. He proves that unless this were the case, each star would not move with the absolute uniformity which does characterise it. He shows also that the Earth could not be animated by any movement of transition. “The Earth,” argued Ptolemy, “ lies at the centre of the celestial sphere. If the Earth were to be endowed with movement, it would not lie always at this point, it must therefore shift to some other part of the sphere. The movements of the stars, however, preclude this, and therefore the Earth must be as devoid of any movement of translation as it is of rotation.”
The destruction and consumption of civilization, as it has been called, is now obvious to all, and the uppermost thought in the mind of the majority is—What is to take its place?
To the Christian there is only one answer, for all who are truly in Christ are as Abraham of old of whom it is written “For he looked for a city, which hath foundations whose Builder and Maker is God.” Can anybody say that God is the builder of Democracy or Bolshevism? Take Democracy which is usually defined as the rule of the people, by the people, for the people; this brings to our remembrance the attempted rule of Korah, Dathan and Abiran, who had gathered all the congregation against Moses. What else was that but the voice of the people, or the voice of Democracy against God’s ruling. But what was the answer of God ? “ The earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all that appertained unto Korah and all his people.”
The Christian ideal—which allows of no via media—is no nationality in Christ, all aliens outside of Christ. Such a spiritual Christendom must be built out of the present material, national, war distorted Christless-dom. The choice between the nations is either to find salvation by an internationalism of love in the truth as taught by Christ, or perish.
Without this credo, Bolshevism would never have been able to gain power, for only by denying the existence of God could they have launched upon a wholesale massacre of the non-proletariat classes and well-to-do farmers in order to confiscate all private properties. The conscience must first be quenched for such a policy. Thus also ended the Judia dispensation in the first century A.D. The lowest overthrew and killed off the upper classes, who’indeed deserved such a judgment. But how can a man like Stalin, who had once studied to become a priest, justify his utter rejection of religion?
The answer, is by science, the falsely so-called science which Saint Paul warns us to beware of.
In a speech made by Marshal Stalin, I quote the following:— “They talk about science. The data of science have always been tested by practice and experience…if it were otherwise, we should have had no science at all, we should have had no astronomy, and we would still have had to get along vsdth the outworn system of Ptolemy ; we should have had no biology, and we would still be comforting ourselves with the legend of the creation of man.”
Copernicus’ theory of the revolving earth, and Darwin’s “ evolution ” have therefore made possible the monster state of atheism in Russia.
Yet these two theories are accepted as facts and taught in schools in the Western so-called Christian states, and believed by clergy and laymen, thus showing how impossible it is for them to accept and believe the doctrine of Christ, and what hypocrisy is their profession of such a faith.
We cannot deny that the attitude of the Bolsheviks is more logical than the attitude of the Western Democracies, for if they do not believe the Bible in its teaching of earthly things, neither can they consistently accept it in relation to spiritual things.
“ If I told you earthly things, and you believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things ?” John 3:12. It was precisely this consideration that induced me to issue the pamphlet “Scripture Versus the Fable of the Revolving Earth” in April, 1924, which is now reprinted in this book. The next article “The Policy of Constantine and its Decline ” was also printed in London in August, 1924, to show the difference between the Christian Doctrine and the canons initiated by the Emperor Constantine, which canons are the basis of the civilization which is now in the process of disintegration. Not having been planted by the Lord Jesus Christ, it is now being rooted up, as foretold in the article in question. The third work “ How are the Dead Raised up? And with what Body do they Come?” was printed in answer to the book published by the Church of England “ Doctrine in the Church of England” being the report of the Commission on Christian Doctrine appointed by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 1922.
Bolshevism on the other hand is supposed to be the rule of the proletariat, but in reality it is the dictatorship of a very limited hierarchy having for its foundation atheism.
Stalin’s credo is “ Communists who hinder the broadest development of anti-religious propaganda have no place in the ranks of the party.”
Some globe earth believer might use as a criticism for the flat earth and say, “Where is the ventilation of the earth? The earth would build up heat if it’s enclosed.”
They have a point there. Think about it, if the earth was enclosed by a dome, which we believe, how would the heat escape? Well, there is an answer for this and that is there are vents. Think of a radiator for the car, the hot water has to leave and be cooled down, right? So, is there a like system for an enclosed flat earth? I think that there is. This is something that I have not seen addressed with all the flat earth videos I’ve seen and articles I’ve read but if you look hard enough in the Bible, you’ll find the answer.
With the sun always shinning on some part of the face of the earth does the heat build up? I don’t think anyone can say for sure, as the argument would be that there is darkness on the other part of the earth that will provide some relief for the earth. Also, there is the jet stream and there is the cooler temperature at high altitudes. This might be enough for the ventilation, but since we are mortal men, we really don’t know but I know someone who DOES know, and that is Yahweh God.
We read in the Bible of the door ways for the rain and the snow. Now, what are door ways but a vent, is it not? So, could it be that the heat goes through this? Keep in mind these are all educated guess – at least I hope these are educated, as we certainly are not told this by NASA. Now, could there be other vents? Here are some possibilities:
There could be vents in the North Pole. Haven’t we heard of strange things coming from there? I had read many years ago of explorers in the 19th and early 20th Century that when you go beyond 70 degree North Latitude that when the wind blows from the North, it’s warm. How can this be unless it’s warm air coming from some place.
There could be deep underground vents that the air comes from. We know that there are some caves that we cannot find the end of it, such as Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, USA. They cave explores have gone many miles in and haven’t found the end. Wind Cave in South Dakota, where we are told there is a wind coming from somewhere inside. Who knows how many there are around the world.
With the caves in mind, do you know that it’s now “illegal” to go into unexplored caves in the U.S. You can go in something that is small and you can go into caves opened to the tourist but don’t go into others. Do you think the government is really concerned for your health and safety? No, but that’s a good excuse as any for them to us. The fact is, that just maybe they don’t want you to discover the earth is NOT what the government tells you.
Another area to consider is certain “drains” in the oceans. We have read from somewhere off Norway in the North Sea that has been reported of great swirling sounds and a huge funnel sighted where the ocean is going down it. Naturally, after a time it returns. Now, this answers the question of what makes the tides BUT it could also be part of our ventilation system. Also, keep in mind that there are certain locations in the oceans where ships have gone missing without a trace of wreckage found. Even if wreckage was found, what caused it to sink.
This is just a guess on my part but I would not be surprised that it’s implemented. Recently, Jeff Bezos, the found of Amazon, said that in 50 years there will be few people on earth as they will be colonized on Mars.
As you know, he has this Blue Horizon business. Now, we know that there is a real plan – which is being implemented now – of depopulating Earth. That they are using this so-called virus as the excuse. Could it just be that in order to explain few and few people not living that the government will say that they are signing up to go and live on Mars? Could it just be that people who sign up are told not to say anything? When, in reality, they are taken to a quarantine camp where they are eliminated. In the meantime the news channels will show rocket after rocket going up – when, in reality it’s really a CGI.
With people so dumbed down in believing as real these walk in space, flights to the moon and pictures of other planets, they will believe in all these launch flights as real and that this is where their missing neighbours are going? And being told by the government “That they are the chosen few that will be taken off earth but have to remain silent in order to not cause jealousy.” Well, with most of Christendom believing in the Rapture, they would be more than willing to be sent in space.
Anyhow, this is just my thought but it would not surprise me that this will be the excuse used for all the millions of missing people and that the people will believe this story. Time will tell.
