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.
