Good Bible Scholars Don’t Always Get It Right, part 2
More On Jeremiah 31
Jeremiah 31:37 Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.
I would like to add another thought on the Jeremiah 31:37, which you can look at as a continuation of the previous Post. To recap a bit, globe earth believers assume that we know the measurements of the earth, of which, if we did, would mean that God would cast off His People. The fact of the matter is, that it’s globe earth believers know the measurements and it’s them making Yahweh, God a liar. What do I mean by this?
If you believe that the earth is a spinning ball, which people like Kent Hovind, William Finck, Steve Anderson and company do, then it is them that is wrong. In addition to what was written in the previous Post, this thought came to mind today.
Since heliocentric people believe that the earth has a circumference of (approximately) 25,000 mph, that means they know the diameter; that means they also know the radius. By knowing this, it is THEM that claim to know the dimensions of the earth or the foundations! After all, if a globe has foundations (which they believe), they know how far is to the core of the earth. In fact, these people claim to know the different layers of the earth. That’s amazing considering the deepest hole dug was only 35,000! And, according to them, the radius of the earth is about 4,000 miles.
In September 2009, the rig drilled the deepest oil well in history at a vertical depth of 35,050 ft (10,683 m) and measured depth of 35,055 ft (10,685 m) in the Tiber Oil Field at Keathley Canyon, according to Wikipedia. (I heard that it was the Russians who drilled down to 40,000 feet many years before, but then again, we can’t have the Russians hold the title, can we? 😉 Anyhow, the point is made that we only scratched the surface, yet they claim to know how deep the earth is!
Images of the flat earth are only that, it’s not a real photo but the images used is just a guess. The CGIs I’m talking about show a cone shape depth to the earth. I personally think that this is wrong, as the thickness of the earth can very well be perpendicular to the surface; thus forming a block as it were. I don’t see that the edges of the earth would have less depth to it than the centre surface of the earth.
As for the edges of the earth on the surface no flat earth believer can say for sure, and that includes me – because we weren’t there. So, we have no idea exactly how wide it is or what the surface diameter is. To find this out, you would have to go to the interior Antarctica as far as we could until we reached the firmament or dome.
We have not walked around the dome where it touches the land and took bearings. Therefore, we don’t know if it’s roundish, or if it’s an actual square. We also don’t know if there is a little land on the outside of this dome that is actually a square with the dome forming one huge circle. The reason why I say a square, is that we are told that there is an angel on each corner. I don’t take this as a metaphor but literal. Yes, I know this is debatable but that’s OK.
The fact is since we haven’t been the very edge of the world, we have no dimensions to measure the earth.
No flat earther claims (unless he’s a shill for the government) he been down the sides of the earth. Nor have we been on the underside. Even those in the military and have access to the best jets can not claim this, as we have the firmament keeps us in. So, since we haven’t been down the sides of the earth, as it were, there is another dimension that we don’t know in order to measure the earth. The most that we can measure is taking one point from the North Pole, as best as we can guess it, and going to the Antarctica. Or taking a diameter reading. But all these readings will vary as the coast line to the Antarctica would be different. Again, we would have to go inland as far as we can till we get to the impregnable wall. And we all know that the US military will not allow you to do that.
All you need is one measurement that is not exact in order to throw you off in measuring anything.
People who believe in a ball earth, should have the measurements of the earth. In fact, they boast it, for there are “scientific” papers that give us the weight and size of the earth – all of this is contrary to Jeremiah 31:37
OK, next comment please? 😉
Talking about comments, I hear many critics say, “They (flat earthers) have an answer for everything!” This is meant to be derogatory. But do you realise how sick this is? Shouldn’t there be an answer for every question? Shouldn’t globe eathers be happy that they found the truth? No. It seems like they are happy in their blissful ignorance. But in reality, ignorance is really not blissful, as it destroys the quality of your life in some way.
So, keep informed and grow in the knowledge of God.
