The Fifth Day
And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.(Genesis 1:20-23) KJV
The Bible describes a sequential process of creating life by sphere. There are five spheres to consider: hydrosphere, lithosphere, firmasphere, atmosphere and biosphere.
When the Bible refers to living creatures that hath life, it’s referring to a sentient being which has a spirit and a soul. It’s not equivalent to the biological definition of life.
Bats are birds is an excuse that some people use to reject the Bible. It requires using the words “bird” and “fowl” as synonyms, and the misapplication of phylogenetic systematics to a spherogenetic creation.
Matty’s Paradigm incorporates both macro- and micro-evolution, but they aren’t an entropy defying source of new complexity and diversity. The genomes of created kinds are decaying.
If we have two types of dragon which are both serpents, clearly identified physical traits, and one has a syndrome of characteristics which occurs in several groups, then we have the beginning of a hierarchical taxonomy.
Given that synapomorphies only occur after the process of evolution has started, and evolution is a consequence of sin, it’s appropriate to change the spelling of synapomorphy to sinapomorphy.
The first fliers are intended to fly with periods of roosting. They needed well-developed wings and feet but not arms. Logically the first aerial dragon had two legs but no arms. It was a Wyvern.
We have a closed loop which shows us that a variety of words refer to the same idea: Serpents are a suborder in the Class of Reptiles, and there are different kinds of Serpent.
Artistic renderings of Seraphim consistently miss the fact that they’re reptilian. Their physical characteristics will have implications for us when we consider the terrestrial serpents that were created on the 6th day.
In the context of our lips speaking lies and separating us from God something caused the Cockatrice, an egg-layer which formerly had legs and wings, to take on the form of a limbless snake. Any guesses?
Satan is a living creature who’s visible as a red dragon, but he’s also spiritual. Can we deduce a mechanism by which he may change his appearance so that he looks like an angel of light?
Satan’s spiritual form is a specific chemical compound which embodies his character and nature such that when someone has it in their system they’re susceptible to his will.
Satan’s not in heaven, but he’s not in hell either. Yet. When he gets there he’ll find a ball of molten radioactive slag. It’s not a domain that he can rule. Satan isn’t going to enjoy hell. That’s propaganda.
A Living Soul
Investigating the division of soul and spirit has lead to a conclusion: our souls existed with God before the universe was created.
How can a spiritual entity which is based on a gravity node project a visible image?
A prediction of Einstein’s theory of relativity may be used to prove that the soul is a gravity node because spiritual entities use gravitational lensing to project holograms.
The Reptile-Mammal Transition
A new definition of “scientific knowledge” is necessary for the post-Hawking popular science (SciPop) Trekkie generation:
“Anecdotal evidence combined with probability means its a reasonable assumption.”
The reptile/mammal transition isn’t evolution, there’s no passage of heritable traits from generation to generation, it’s abiogenesis. It illustrates the use of spherogenetic systematics as a deductive tool.
In spherogenetic systematics Fish is a higher rank than Whale. The fish of the sea is everything created in the hydrosphere. Whale is a subcategory. The thing that swallowed Jonah was both a fish and a whale.
Can we take a systematic approach to the Bible and come to know the mind of Christ? Some things are spiritually discerned, but if we who are spiritual take a systematic approach, what may we find?
Seraphim and Cherubim were created in the firmasphere on the 4th day. God recombined their characteristics as he created the moving creatures in the hydrosphere and fowls in the atmosphere on the 5th day.
There are five reasons why the anointed cherub isn’t Satan.
In Levitical dietary restrictions the forbidden kinds of bird are derived from firmaspheric progenitors Cherubim and Women. Bats have a different progenitor, based on leathery wings, in the Serpent group.
The Bible must account for everything we see around us today: in the heavens above and in the earth below. Otherwise God’s lying. Since God can’t lie we use deduction to show how the pieces fit together.
If we’re prudent, we clearly see that scientific evidence isn’t evidence. It’s an interpretation of evidence which has been tailored to fit the popular science (SciPop) narrative of godless existence.
IF God can’t find a man to stand in the gap, and he sent prophets who completed their ministries, then the prophets weren’t sent to stand in the gap. They were sent to warn that there was a gap.
Matty’s Paradigm isn’t what you have to believe to be a Christian, it’s what CAN be believed in the name of Jesus Christ that’s in perfect harmony with both the Word of God and science.
The prevailing attitude of climate change denial within evangelical Christianity has nothing to do with what the Bible says about it, it’s the influence of Republican party politics in the USA.
Are you ready put ICHABOD over the door, lie down in your graves and wait for Jesus to return? Or are you going to help us to make the gospel relevant and accessible for the next 1,000 years?
