To This Day, Some Very Bright Minds Believe The Earth Is Hollow And Filled With GIANTS » SkyWatchTV
To This Day, Some Very Bright Minds Believe The Earth Is Flat, Forming A GIANT Schism Within Christendom.
Rather strange it is that a hollow earth is believable, but flat inconceivable, though Scripture, simple first person observation proves it so, and the greatest Science Faction story every imagined envelopes the holographic realty of our mind’s eye.
“Are you a flaming literalist?”
“Where does your literalism end, and another’s begin?”
“Our greatest obstacle to truth is the assumption that we already have it.”
FLAT EARTH Clues Introduction and all CLUES
As we carefully parse Scripture, let us take note of words classically interpreted as something they are not. Case in point, …. A ball is round but not a circle. A circle is round but not a ball. Both are round but not the same.
It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in[.]
“In the past, I have used this same verse to defend the globe idea of the earth myself. But there is a difference between a circle and a globe/sphere/ball. An ice-skating rink is a circle. We skate on it, going round and round, but never, up, over and around. It is not a sphere. It is an enclosure in the shape of a circle. So also it would appear that the Earth is. Check out the Septuagint’s version of this same verse:
Isaiah 40:22 (LXX) [It is] he that comprehends the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants in it are as grasshoppers; he that set up the heaven as a chamber, and stretched [it] out as a tent to dwell in:
Without trying to literally force a globe onto this text, it describes a circular earth that has a heaven (beaten metallic expanse) set up over it as a “chamber,” which is stretched out like a “tent” for us to dwell in. This is describing an enclosed system! How enclosed is it? […]
Circle means circle. Not ball. Isaiah clearly knows the difference between a circle and a spherical object. Note that a few chapters prior he uses a completely different word for a ball:
Isaiah 22:18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord’s house.
The Hebrew word Isaiah used for “ball” here is “dur” because, of course you can’t toss a circle (chug). Whereas, of course, a spherical object you can toss. He knew the difference. Therefore, I now believe Isaiah 40:22 is a terrible Scripture reference to use as a description of the Earth’s shape being a sphere. But, let’s continue to test this. Where else is “chug” used and how?
Proverbs 8:27 (ESV) When He established the heavens, I was there, When He inscribed a circle on the face of the deep.
How do you “inscribe a circle” on the face of something to get a ball? Seems to me, the circle is something cut into something else. The Hebrew word the ESV translated into “inscribe” is “chaqaq” which means: – See more at:
