Not All Great Astronomer Agree
“Even great astronomers do not always escape erroneous conclusion, and sometimes they have to recant absolute mistakes of reasoning and calculation.”
“For several thousand years people supposed that the earth was a great platform surrounded by the sea.
“They certainly knew nothing of the real shape of the earth.
“David who lived a good while before Homer, did not speak of the ’round world.’ There is no such word as ’round’ in the original Hebrew, nor in our Bible version of the Psalms.
“The common Latin phrase for the earth, ‘orbis terrarum,’ and in the Latin Vulgate Bible, translated ‘The round world,’ does not mean a globe, but a round disc, or wheel.”
Sir Edmund Becket, BT., “Astronomy,” 7th Ed., preface p. 5, pp. 1-2.
According to the above quotations, astronomers are sometimes erroneous in their calculations, reasoning, and conclusions. Yet, with unproved and un-provable assumptions, they have the audacity to contradict the God-Inspired writers of Holy Write; and practically deny the cosmical teaching of Moses, and the declarations contained in the Psalms, and in the Prophets; concerning the Sun, the Moon, the stars and the Earth. Thus making the God-sent Messiah (in whom many of them profess to believe), a liar! Disregarding the fact, that this same Messiah, the Prince of Prophets, and the Coming King of all the Earth, endorsed “Moses, the Psalms and the Prophets.” The declaration that for thousands of years, men knew nothing of the real shape of the Earth, is not supported by an atom of proof. What d modern man know of its shape? They have never been to, and consequently have never seen, beyond the circumferential ice-barriers, that surround the Antarctic, and yet they say, “The Earth is a whirling globe.”
