  • The New Cosmos Series Starts Tonight, So Let’s Take A Look At The Biblical View Of The Cosmos In Comparison? According to Ecclesiastes 1:5 the sun goes (hasteth) around the earth

    “The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose”

    –as, of course, it must, since, according to Ps 93:1, Ps 96:10, and 1 Chr 16:30, the earth does not move. And the earth cannot move because, according to 1 Samuel 2:8 and Ps 75:3, it is placed on pillars. And because it is placed on pillars, it has an underside and an upper side, as confirmed by Isaiah 40:22 which indicates that the earth is a circle–i.e., a flat disk.

    That is also confirmed by Proverbs 8:27, which describes god as beginning the creation of the world when he “drew a circle on the face of the deep” (ESV), (the Hebrew word translated as “circle,” “compass, “ and “horizon” in the different Bibles is the same word used for circle in Isaiah 40:22).

    (The Hebrew word translated as “circle” in Isaiah 40:22 is chuwg, which means “circle” not “sphere.” Strong’s Concordance: “circle”…”describe a circle.” Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament: “Circle…the earth conceived as a disc, Is 40:22.” Hebrew-Aramaic and English Lexicon of the Old Testament: “draw round, make a circle.” If a sphere were meant, duwr, the Hebrew word for “ball”–as in Isaiah 22:18– would have been used. The ancient Hebrews would have gotten the idea of a circular earth by viewing the horizon from the top of a mountain.)

    Underneath the flat disk of the earth is the abyss, the bottomless pit, which is referred to several times in the Bible (ex. Rev. 9:1,2).

    That is also what is being referred to in Job 26:7 when it says that the earth hangs over nothing. (The Hebrew word translated “upon” in the KJV also means “over.”) The actual sphere of the earth in space is not “suspended’ or “hanging” “over” or “upon” nothing. It is orbiting the sun at 66,700 miles per hour. If the earth can be considered “hanging” over anything, it is the sun, which certainly is NOT nothing.

    Several other verses in the Bible also indicate the earth is flat, such as Nebuchadnezzar’s vision in Dan 4:10-11 (the tree could not be seen from all the earth if it were not flat). Dan 2:28 states that the visions of Nebuchadnezzar are from God. If the biblical god says the biblical earth is flat, it must be flat.

    The original Hebrew word translated as firmament is raqiya, which is a noun derived from the Hebrew word raqa. That word is a verb meaning “to beat out,” and is used in the bible in reference to beating out metal into plates or expanses of the metal (as in Exodus 39:3). So raqiya, as a noun, would literally mean “that which is beaten out.”

    The biblical firmament, or sky, is therefore a solid, beaten out expanse or vault set on the rim of the flat disk of the earth. That is confirmed in Job 37:18, which states:

    “Can you beat out the vault of the skies as he does,
    hard as a mirror of cast metal?” (New English Bible).

    There, the Hebrew word translated as “beat out” (or “spread out” in other versions) is, as noted above, raqa.

    The solid, or firm, nature of the biblical firmament is also indicated by Proverb 8:27-28:

    27. When he established the heavens…
    28. When he made firm the skies above… [ASV, ESV, NRSV, NASV, NAB]

    The Hebrew word translated as “firm” there is amats, which has a meaning of “be hard”.

    The solid vault of heaven is also implied in verses such as Deut 4:32:

    “Ask now about the former days, long before your time, from the day God created man on the earth; ask from one end of the heavens to the other. Has anything so great as this ever happened, or has anything like it ever been heard of?”

    The “ends of heaven” would be the base of the vault of heaven where it rests on the rim of the disk of the earth.

    See also Ps 19:1-6, Isaiah 13:4-5, and, particularly, Matt 24:31, which states Jesus as saying:

    “And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

    The elect are those on the earth who will be saved in the last days. Jesus is saying there that the angels would gather the elect from all over the earth, from one side, or end, of the base of the vault of heaven to the other side or end, from the east, west, north, and south, which is what the reference to the four winds means.
    The solid vault of heaven has a specific purpose in the Bible. As Genesis chapter one indicates, the whole cosmos consisted of water before the creation process began. Before god created the earth on the fourth day, he created the firmament of heaven on the second day.

    6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
    7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so.

    So that passage clearly indicates that the purpose of the solid firmament was to hold back the waters above the heaven. Furthermore, those waters continued to exist in the biblical cosmos, as indicated by Psalm 104:1-3 and Psalm 148:4. Also, the firmament of heaven has windows that are opened to let the water above the firmament fall as rain, as indicated by Genesis 7:11 and 8:2,

    The stars in the biblical cosmos are just lights set in the firmament. As mere
    lights in the sky, they will fall to the earth in the Last Days (Matt 24:29), which conflicts with finding that the actual stars are other suns and many times larger than the earth.

    So, according to the Bible the earth is a flat, immovable disk, supported by pillars and covered with a solid vault of heaven, the rim of which is is resting on the perimeter of the disk of the earth, and the stars are just lights set in the vault of heaven.

    That this is the correct view of the biblical cosmos is shown by the fact that it describes a structure with parts that are fully consistent with each other. That structural consistency indicates that it accurately represents the cosmos as conceived by the ancient Hebrews and as its writers incorporated that view in the Bible.
    In addition, according to the Bible, earth is the centerpiece of creation and in the Last Days god will destroy the earth and the heavens as part of his plan for mankind. (2 Peter 3:10)

    So, according to the Bible, earth is the centerpiece of creation, and in the Last Days the biblical god will destroy the earth and the heavens as part of his plan for mankind. Is that really realistic considering the vastness of the universe and the enormous number of galaxies? In the actual universe that science has uncovered, the earth is an insignificant mote, even more insignificant than a speck of dust is on the surface of the earth.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyS1rs_OsxA

    So, if one fully accepts the modern, present-day view of the universe as factual, then one would have to conclude that the Bible reflects the ignorant, myth-based beliefs of its writers and is not the word of god.
    So how do the believers come to the conclusion that the Bible is the word of god in light of all that?
    @Jean, from what I understand the new series greatly surpasses the original because of the advancements in knowledge and in computer simulations.
    @Ann, you are the one who needs glasses.

    Isaiah viewed god on his throne sitting on the top of the vault of the earth. So in that perspective he is above the circle, or the disk, of the earth.

    I have not “interpreted” anything. I have taken the words of the Bible as they are plainly stated.

    YOU are the one who is interpreting the Bible to make it say what it does not say.
    Excuse me, I meant vault of the sky.
    @Sum, the original series was done by Carl Sagan back in the eighties. It was highly acclaimed at that time. The new version will vastly surpass it.

    You can watch the whole original series on YouTube.

    @Bulky_Bob, if the Bible consists of metaphors, then what is real in the Bible?

    You consider them to be metaphors only because they are contrary to reality. But what do you care about reality? You have always shown here on Y!A that you hate reality when it is in conflict with the Bible.
    You Bible believers did not always consider them metaphors. You Bible believers even burned Giordano Bruno at the stake for saying, in contradiction to the Bible that the earth moves, and you would have done the same to Galileo if he had not recanted.
    And as far as the credibility of the Bible is concerned, see my answers to these questions.

    I don’t know what’s going on to the above links to YouTube’s Cosmos. Just click on the link twice, it will get you to the series.
    @Bulky_Bob, why would god use metaphor that is flat out contrary to reality? And why are ALL of the descriptions, according to your view, of the cosmos in the Bible metaphor?

    Why did god not give some descriptions that are factual?
    By the way, the ancient Greek scientists knew that the earth is a sphere at the same time the writers of the Bible believed it to be as described above.

    In the fourth century B.C. Aristotle presented several scientific arguments for a spherical earth, and Heraclides provided rational arguments to show that the earth is spinning on its axis. And in the third century B.C. Aristarchus even proposed a view of the solar system essentially the same as our modern view. He also measured the distance to the moon and its size with remarkable accuracy. Also in the third century B.C. Eratosthenes measured the circumference of the earth with remarkable accuracy.

    Why did god make himself appear to be more ignorant about the cosmos than the ancient Greeks?
    And WHY as I pointed out that the view I gave is the correct view of the biblical cosmos is shown by the fact that it describes a structure with parts that are fully consistent with each other. That structural consistency indicates that it accurately represents the cosmos as conceived by the ancient Hebrews and as its writers incorporated that view in the Bible.

    Why would all the “metaphors” come together to give such a self-consistent structure if that structure were not actually what the writers believed.
    >”The usual way to approach discerning the truth of God’s Word is to first try to accept it at face value, i.e., for exactly what it says. If that is not possible, then treat all or part as a metaphor (or poetic)”

    So, those who read the Bible 2,000 years ago would, because of their lack of knowledge, consider it to be exactly as it says, but we today, because of our increase in knowledge, would consider it metaphor.
