Pythagoras discovered that ratios of lyre string lengths produced
harmonious notes. Emboldened by his mathematical analysis of music, he
proposed that the distances to the planets followed similar ratios, the
music of the spheres. Actually, Pythagoras was forcing nature to fit his
fondness for mathematics. Mathematical symbols are never detected in nature.
A scientist could argue, �Mathematics follows logical principles like the
identity law (A = A).
Answer: Let�s test this law by substituting hydrogen atoms for symbolical
A�s. Hundreds of billions of ancient galaxies shine from the ancient
universe. The more ancient the light, the more its light-clocks differ from
the light emitted by local hydrogen. The earliest galaxy analyzed to date,
clocked less than 8% of the frequencies of modern hydrogen. Pioneer 10 & 11
transmitted their clock signals from the past as they exited the solar
system in opposite directions. Their clock frequencies changed with
distance (relative to NASA�s hydrogen maser clocks of the moment) at
approximately the Hubble ratio. Nothing in the visible universe follows the
law of identity since everything is observed to change.
Scientist: �The same mathematical laws that work in the solar system work
Answer: The laws only work locally when referenced to undetectable,
symbolical things like mass, energy and time. The laws do not even fit
solar system history. A few millennium ago, people recorded close planet
passages and the shattering of a nearby planet. The Bible mentions both of
these. Visible cosmic history defies the laws of physics. Scientists have
invented a mythical universe that is 99% invisible, to force nature to fit
their mathematical laws.
The problem is that the mathematical laws were founded on an inflexible
law. What law? In the last days, the Apostle Peter wrote, mockers will
come. They will claim evidence from dead ancestors supports their first law
�arche ktiseous� that �all things remain the same.� The notion that matter
is not changing itself, changing relationally, is the basis for the modern
laws of physics, which are contradicted by visible cosmic history. The
atomic clocks and the inertial star streams both accelerate together as
billions of galaxies grew from tiny naked blobs into huge, spread out,
growth spirals. This could only happen if the properties of matter are
Scientists have invented mythical things to protect their fundamental
creed. A tiny bit of vacuum exploded and created everything out of nothing.
Every galaxy is surrounded by four times as much invisible matter as the
natural kind to force the laws of gravity on billions of uncooperative
galaxies. Scientists imagine that all ancient light gets stretched by the
vacuum of space-time. They speculate that the vacuum of space-time pushes
galaxies away at close to light speed. The most pervasive force in the
universe is dark energy that pulls more energy out of the vacuum to
accelerate the expansion of the vacuum. All of these speculative myths were
woven out of mathematical cloth. Yet none of them are necessary if we
accept that the creation is enslaved to change that is an orderly
arrangement (Romans 8:19 -22). No ancient galaxy shines with atomic
perpetual motion, which is the basis for scientific empiricism.
The most powerful evidence for biblical creation is visible cosmic history.
1. God finished creating the plural heavens (the galaxies) and the Earth
first. The earth was formless until God continued to command light to
continue to be. Indeed, light dithers around within all substances giving
them the ability to have extension in space.
2. God continues to form the Sun, Moon and stars and continues to place
them in the spreading place (Hebrew raqiya). He continues to finish the
heavens and the earth, according to the Hebrew text for the seventh day. We
observe great bursts of light from the early universe as matter is
energized by light. Jets of newly formed matter emerge from point sources
in countless galaxies.
3. God continues to call the stars to come out, to spread out in unbroken
continuity yet no star goes missing (Isa 40:26). He spreads out the plural
heavens like a tent, into crumbly fine things (Isa 40:22). He spreads out
dense things into thin clouds in the heavens (Job 37:18). The stars did not
accrete from space dust but spread out form compact places. The star
streams do not close, they accelerate outwards as billions of galaxies grew
into huge, growth spirals. Stars sometimes have double-lobed explosions,
but a remnant continues. We observe stars with double jets forming dusty
nebulae in our own Milky Way. Evidently material in the heart of the star
continues to form and move out from its formless state.
4. The Earth also continues to increase in volume. Bible states that during
Adam�s era it did not rain and water came up out of the ground to water the
earth. Indeed, the continents fit together on a tiny globe without major
surface seas. Isaiah 42:5 mentions that. He spreads out in unbroken
continuity the earth and its offspring (what issues out or is born from the
earth). Indeed, new earth crust keeps on oozing out along a global,
undersea expansion seam. The theory of subduction is denied by the layered,
undisturbed sediments in the oceanic trenches.
The problem with mathematical theories is that they were contrived with the
first law of the last days. The most powerful evidences against the first
law are the visible history of how galaxies formed and the geology of our
growing planet. Changing Earth Creationists reject the first law, which is
why we reject mathematics as evidence. We accept what the Bible says, that
light refutes error and establishes the truth because all that is visible
is light (phos estin - Ephesians 5:13). Visible cosmic history trumps all
mathematical stories. The history of how the stars emerged and spread out
as galaxies grew is utterly unscientific, yet we see it. There is not a
single verse in the Bible that would have been understood scientifically by
a contemporary of the author. Telescopes are even now imaging the creation
age. Isaiah 40:26 contains a double imperative. He commands us to lift up
our eyes on high and see who has created these stars, the One who leads
forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; because of the
greatness of His might and the strength of His power, not one of them is
missing. Look and glorify the Creator. The triumph of the Bible over the
western system will bring Him great glory.

the triple junctions in the global expansion seam: two in the Atlantic, two
in the Pacific, two in the Indian and one south of Australia. The oldest
sea (purple color) is the eastern Mediterranean. The Pacific, Indian,
Atlantic and Arctic oceans formed after the Eastern Mediterranean. The
Earth was divided after Noah�s flood, during the days of Peleg, Abraham�s
great, great, great grandfather.
