Hello, fellow ATSers.
I wasnt sure about the best place to post this topic as it involves space, earth, science and religion, but Im a Christian, so here it is.
I've been doing some research in the Hebrew text regarding the creation of the moon, and I have found something that many of you may find
But first, just to give you an idea of my theological views, I am a Christian dispensationalist, and I believe that the bible makes it clear that
God's holy calendar for the 'mowedim' is solar only. It was originally based on a 360 day solar orbit that I believe was extended to 365.25 days as
a result of the flood. It starts and ends with the veral equinox. King David appointed 2 generals to over see the military for each month, totaling 24
Generals for all 12 months of the year. A lunar year only has 355 days which will cause the holy days to slip out of season after 2 or 3 years. To fix
this issue, the Jews who falsely observe a Babylon derived lunar calendar, must insert a 13th intercalary month every 2 or 3 years to keep the holy
days in season. The bible never authorizes the observance of the moon for determining the new month ('Rosh Chodesh' is mistraslated as new moon).
And furthure more, the bible certainly never mentions the existance of a 13th month.
With that aside, the question is raise; How was this error started? The answer is simple: Genesis 1:14-18 does not even mention the moon at all. When
viewing these texts in Hebrew, it becomes apparent that the only two words for 'moon' ('yareach' and 'labana') are missing. Instead, we find the
word 'ha'maor' for luminaries. So essentially, Genesis 1:14-18 says that God uses the Sun for ruling the day, and the stars to have dominion over
the night. As far as i can tell, the end of Gen 1:16 "...the stars also", really belong to verse 17 as the opening of a new sentence. So Gen 1:16
and 17 should look more like this:
16 And God made the two great categories of luminaries. The greater luminary for the day, and the lesser luminary for the night. 17And the stars He
set in the firmament of the heavens to shine light on the earth and to separate the day from the night.
Keep in mind, that paleo Hebrew did not use word spacing, punctuation marks, or verse numbers. Also notice that the singular word 'ha maor' for
light is also used to describe the ambient light that collectively comes off of the mehorah, which actually has 7 bulbs for light.
So, since the moon is not a luminary, since its not always visible at night but sometimes is during the days, and since even Job 25:5 acknowledges
that the moon only reflects light, the only logical conclusion when taking Gen 1:14-18 literally is that God was not talking about the moon in these
verses. So Gen 1:14 only authorizes the use of the Sun, and the stars for day, years and holy feasts.
So, why is it that God fails to identify the moon in the creation account of Genesis? Is it possible that the moon my not have even existed until
after the flood???
I will now direct your attention to
Gen 8:22 "While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease."
Psalm 104:19 "He made the moon for the seasons (Holy Days); The sun knows the place of its setting."
Notice how in Gen 8:22, God promised Noah that as long as the earth remains, there will be 4 perpetual seasons...almost as if He is introducing the
precession of the equinox for the first time in history.
The, notice how Psalm 104:19 says that the moon was created for the holy days, not "marking the holy days".
I believe these two verses have a close relationship. It is my hypothesis that prior to the flood, the earth orbited the sun on an up right axis every
360 days. Each month had 30 days, as the flood waters persisted for 5 months of 30 days. Since the earth was not tilted, there would not be a
precession of the equinox. So, I think a canopy of water created a uniform spring climate on the entire earth.
So why would God say the moon is for the holy days in psalm 104:19, when the lunar month is only an average of 29 days long?
I feel the answer is in the precession of the equinox. See, the Holy days must be kept in their season, and the orbit of our moon is what keeps our
23.5 degree axial tilt stable. It results in four seasons and 26,000 year wobble cycle. Therefore, the spontaneous creation of the moon would have
knocked earth off of its axis, and started the precession of the equinox.
So where did the moon come from??
Well, Genesis 1 indicated that at some point, there was only one continent. I believe that according to the Electric Universe theory, our planet was
created from the plasma z-pinch effect from an unstable Gas Giant. If the sun birthed the Gas Giants, and the Gas Giants birthed the terrestrial
planets, then it stand to reason that the terrestrial planets may have birthes their rocky moons.
So essentially, at some point, earth became over charged electrically (possibly due to a comet, planet x, or some kind of mega solar fit) and in its
attempt to seek stability, it ejected an entire continent which became the moon. This crustal displacement would have released the flood waters of the
deep, and punched a hole in the water canopy.
Notice how we only see one face of the moon. Is this tidal locking, or magnetic locking? The moon does have a magnetic field, but it is over powered
Also notice how the face we see is relatively smooth, like a rapidly frozen mantle, yet the other side has mountain ranges and craters that eerily
resemble plasma scarring . Perhaps this would substanciate all those "structures on the moon claimes".
Notice how the earth and the moon share the same water, oxygen, and titanium isotopes.
Notice how the moon can comfortably fit in the deepest recesses of the Pacific basin.
Science claimes that earth is 4 billion years old, and the moon is 4.5 billion years old, but the moon is pelted with solar radiation on a daily
basis. This could accelarate radioactive decay.
I believe that the earth is much older than 6 thousand years, but that the earth was restored in 6 days after being made desolate from an angelic war.
It is civilization that is 6000 years old.
I have heard about the lost continent of Mu. This may or may not be relavent, but notice how similar 'Mu' is to 'Moon'. So, maybe the word month
also comes from Mu.
So perhaps the moon has only been in orbit for about 4,500 years.
Let the discussion begin.
