The EARTH is not a PLANET

1. THE SUN IS A PLANET !

What is a "Planet"?

The Greek root word "planao" means to go astray, wander or roam about. The Bible warns about false teachers who deviate from the truth of the Christian Faith. They are "wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever" (Jude 13).

Early astronomers chose the word "planet" to describe celestial bodies that seemed to deviate from simple rotation about the earth. According to modern theories, the earth is the third planet from the sun. The sun is just one mediocre star among billions. We live on a speck in a vast, impersonal universe. Really?

How do "Scientists" know that the Earth is Moving?

You tell me. Infidels scoff at the Bible by saying that the stars could not move quickly enough to circle our world daily. Well, if the globe is spinning rapidly, why doesn't our atmosphere spiral off? Atheists tell us that the earth is spinning, circling the sun, rotating with the galaxy AND rushing away from the big bang. And neither you nor I can
feel any motion!

The Senses don't Think!

Modern "science" is based on the false assumption that our five senses are the only path to truth. This is called "empiricism". But one does not think with his nose or eyes - not even with his brain. It is only the MIND that forms hypotheses, develops experiments and defends conclusions.

The Latin word scientia simply means "knowledge".(5) It is a prideful lie of modern unbelief that knowledge comes only through the senses. "...Avoiding ... oppositions of science falsely so-called" (1 Timothy 6:20), let us remember that "We have also a more sure word of prophesy; whereunto ye would do well to take heed, as unto a light that shineth is a dark place..." (1 Peter 1:19). The Bible is the manual prepared by our Creator to explain His universe to us. We should not ignore it to follow the fables of foolish men.

My highly trained senses tell me that you are a fuckwit.

I think your god needed someone to independantly proof-read his manual. It's filled with errors, spelling mistakes and logical fallacies.

Study the orbit of Venus and compare it to a model of what you would expect from a heliocentric system to a geocentric one. It only fits the heliocentric model. No I don't know where you've been the past fifty years since we had NASA who started sending probes to outer space to see what it's like. They discovered that the Sun is a burning ball of hydrogen gas millions of times large then the Earth.
The definitions of words change as the world they are used to describe changes. A planet is now any celestial body that orbits a star, but is large enough to have it's own gravitaional well and it's own satillets.

I love it when they try to get all smart on us. Hey wasn't the bible written back when the Earth was flat?

I find that your only role in life is to be such a total fucking idiot that we're glad we're not you.

Ignoring all the other fail for the moment:

Modern "science" is based on the false assumption that our five senses are the only path to truth.

You have more than five senses. Quite a few more. Balance, heat and pain are an example of three others.

Astrologers define a planet as an object that moves relative to the fixed stars. By that definition, the sun and moon (and Pluto) are planets and the earth is not.

Astronomers have their own definition based on our modern understanding of the solar system. A planet is a body that:

(a) orbits the Sun,

(b) is large enough so that it is forced into a sphere by gravity, and

(c) has cleared its orbit of smaller objects.

By this definition the sun, moon and Pluto are not planets, and the earth is.

Pick one definition or the other. Get laughed at by scientists if you pick the first.

How do "Scientists" know that the Earth is Moving?

Stellar parallax. Look it up.

"follow the fables of foolish men."
Nice alliteration.

You can't feel the earth moving, so it must not be moving.

And yet it is scientists who are wrong for using their five senses...

Good way to contradict yourself.

As for the first bit of nonsense, who cares how the word "planet" first came into use. Language changes, or have you not updated your dictionary in awhile.

"The EARTH is not a PLANET

1. THE SUN IS A PLANET !"


What the holy fuck? Where were you when the astronomers of the world were trying to determine a suitable definition of "planet"? Seriously, you could have saved them a hell of a lot of time if you'd just told them "stars = planets". Then again you'd have to redefine stars so I guess their way was better after all...

"Early astronomers chose the word "planet" to describe celestial bodies that seemed to deviate from simple rotation about the earth. According to modern theories, the earth is the third planet from the sun. The sun is just one mediocre star among billions. We live on a speck in a vast, impersonal universe. Really?"

Yes. Really.

"You tell me. Infidels scoff at the Bible by saying that the stars could not move quickly enough to circle our world daily."

Who says this?

"Well, if the globe is spinning rapidly, why doesn't our atmosphere spiral off?"

Gravity would be my guess but I'm no physicist.

"Atheists tell us that the earth is spinning, circling the sun, rotating with the galaxy AND rushing away from the big bang. And neither you nor I can
feel any motion!"


Rational people say this, not just atheists.

You don't "feel" the Earth rotating because there's no frame of reference. In other words, you can't tell how fast the Earth is spinning without comparing it to something else. Without a frame of reference, absolute speed can't be determined.

If you're in a car going 70mph down the road, do you feel that you're going 70mph without looking out the windows? No. Well, there ya go. Same deal with the Earth.

"The Senses don't Think!"

You have no sensory organs that detect absolute speed you moron.

"Modern "science" is based on the false assumption that our five senses are the only path to truth. This is called "empiricism"."

No shit.

"But one does not think with his nose or eyes - not even with his brain. It is only the MIND that forms hypotheses, develops experiments and defends conclusions."

Your point being?

"The Latin word scientia simply means "knowledge".(5) It is a prideful lie of modern unbelief that knowledge comes only through the senses. "...Avoiding ... oppositions of science falsely so-called" (1 Timothy 6:20), let us remember that "We have also a more sure word of prophesy; whereunto ye would do well to take heed, as unto a light that shineth is a dark place..." (1 Peter 1:19). The Bible is the manual prepared by our Creator to explain His universe to us. We should not ignore it to follow the fables of foolish men."

I stopped trying to parse this about halfway through. I think I wasted too much time on it to be honest.
