Argh! \"firmament\" is just a fancy word for \"sky\" or \"heavens\", as in, \"Good heavens, don't you EVER open a dictionary!?\"

Fundies are willing to make up all kinds off wild crap to try to make the Bible fairy tale possible.

If at first your religon seems unclear, just make some shit up.

And the sun, moon, and planets moved how, exactly? Attached to crystal spheres gyrating around, nested inside each other around the Earth? Funny that the space probes to the various planets haven't recorded shattering any crystal on the way.

And how come we don't fall off the earth?
The earth is flat!
ANd which orifice did you pull these 'facts' from?

I hear spaceships fly through the same windows in the firmament that God opens when it rains.

Religion and science never mix. And now I know why.

"How did sunlight penetrate it? It was only a few inches thick."
The vast majority of shadow-casting objects in the world disagree.

Somebody's skull is "a few inches thick".

"It IS mentioned in the Bible as a firmament. In Psalms, David talked about how the FIRMAMENT showed His handywork."
And in 1957, Soviet Atheist science completely annihilated the Bible's model of the universe, when they sent up Sputnik 1.
Later confirmed with Laika, the first Terran lifeform in space; Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space; Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space, and Alexey Leonov, the first man to perform an EVA or 'spacewalk'.
I'm sure if you told Buzz Aldrin the same, he'd see the irony in your bullshit; just as you'd see the irony of you 're-entering' reality as you hit the ground.
It is also of the most supreme irony, that this fundie twat chose as his screename, the main character in one of Nintendo's most popular game franchises; and in a Sci-Fi scenario, no less. Y'know, 'GodsSamus': as in Space. As in other planets.
No wonder the 'Red Scare' of the 1950s was ramped up several notches in the US then. And not just due to the potential military implications of the USSR's early forays into space, neither.
