 Lactantius was an early Christian author who became an advisor to the first Christian Roman emperor, Constantine I, guiding his religious policy as it developed, and a tutor to his son. 240 AD to 320 AD


"Now let us mark the whole argument by a brief definition. 

The world has been created for this purpose, that we may be born; 

we are born for this end, that we may acknowledge the Maker of the world and of ourselves -- God; 

we acknowledge Him for this end, that we may worship Him; 

we worship Him for this end, that we may receive immortality as the reward of our labours, since the worship of God consists of the greatest labours; 

for this end we are rewarded with immortality, that being made like to the angels, we may serve the Supreme Father and Lord for ever, and may be to all eternity a kingdom to God. 

This is the sum of all things, this the secret of God, this the mystery of the world, from which they are estranged, who, following present gratification, have devoted themselves to the pursuit of earthly and frail goods, 

and by means of deadly enjoyments have sunk as it were in mire and mud their souls, which were born for heavenly pursuits."

The Computer Is Satan's Favorite Tool

"The whole world lies under the sway
of the wicked one." 1 John 5:19

Whole means everything...relationships, entertainment, education, politics, science, business, history, medicine, food, water...air, land and sea.
What is true becomes false, what is false becomes true.
What is real becomes fake and what is fake becomes real.
Love is called hate and hate is called love.
Wickedness is extolled and righteousness is mocked.
God becomes evil and evil becomes god.
Chaos is idolized and order is disdained.
The Evil One is a liar and there is no truth in him.
Anyone not of God the Father, God the Holy Spirit and God the Son, Jesus Christ is of the devil and will perish in their sins.

“For they willingly forget the fact that the heavens existed long ago by the word of God, and the earth was formed out of water and by water.” 2 Peter 3:5
Hydrogen is the first element on the Periodic Table.
Hydrogen broken down means hydro, (water) and gen, (beginning)
Hydrogen is the building block from which all other elements of the Periodic Table are built.
Humans are not 70% water, we are 100% water and everything is 100% water in different configurations and densities.
These are forgotten facts.
This is real science.
Welcome to reality!
“For they willingly forget the fact that the heavens existed long ago by the word of God, and the earth was formed out of water and by water.” 2 Peter 3:5

The Foolishness Of Man

Excerpts from the writings of Ephraim, the great light of the Syrian Church of the fourth century.

Who is more foolish than men, who rather than for himself cares for his dwelling! 

The garments that are in his closet he examines daily, and a worm is lurking in his body. 

The tears that are in his clothes, he mends, but a tear is made in his soul. 

His house is lit up but his soul is dark. 

He shuts up his senses but opens his windows.

He closes his door and guards his money; his mouth is open and the treasure of his thought is stolen. 

The fool makes more of his animals than himself, for he cares for his possessions rather than his own soul. 

Good seed he sows in his ground; in his heart he sows tares.

His understanding is thrown open and cast down; but at the fences of his vineyard he labors.

He chooses and plants vine plants; while his mind is a vine of the vines of Sodom.

He keeps off the wild ass from his sowing; but the wild boar of the woods devours his thoughts.

By closing men's eyes I teach the signs of the Zodiac, though they are not in the heavens.

The Evil One said, "I fear Him, even Jesus, lest He destroy my arts. For lo! I am thousands of years old, and never have I had repose. I have seen nothing established, that I have not turned from and left. There has come one making the unchaste pure; there is sorrow since He has destroyed all that I have built. Many have been my labors and my teachings, that I might cover all creation with all evils. 

Blessed is He who came and laid bare the wiles of the Crafty One!

"Heliocentrists Are Possessed By The Devil!" John Calvin

(and the other great reformer wasn't much different)

The Global Lie!

The Copernicum principal places humanity as inconsequential participants, unimportant, having evolved out of goo and devolving into nothingness in a universe too vast to even contemplate that mankind is anything but an insignificant accident upon an tiny speck of a planet in a universe of endless galaxies of millions and billions of planets and stars of which earth is but a speck of granular sand. All is meaningless, yet awesome but fleeting and a Creator has no place in this plan, only chaos, aliens, pride and fear.

(sung to the Sesame Street tune)

The map on the left is an map of flat earth. The map on the right is an map of flat earth.
This is the famous 'Blue Marble' image of earth supposedly photographed by Apollo 17 in 1972. 

Did You Guess Which Is Not Like The Others?

NASA claims it's the only actual photograph ever taken of earth. Supposedly there have been tens of thousands of satellites orbiting earth for decades and yet we don't have even one real photograph of the globe. How come? Because there is no globe and there are no satellites. There is a growing movement on youtube and the internet exposing one of the most diabolical lies of all time. 

note: perhaps I should have titled this blog post: "A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Lies"

Death Conquered Death

The tree that conquered Adam of old
Is the tree that conquered death foretold

The wood that darkened Adam of old
Is the wood illumining all who behold

Adam and Solomon were easily swayed
So it has been for every age

The tempter of old ruled the hearts of men
Not knowing that his time would soon end

Adam of new went forth conquering
The tempter lost his sway among men

Adam fell to promises false
Christ fell but to promises true

All far and near must pass by the gates
The unquenchable heat and flames thereof

Though you be singed, will you live?
As you pass the demons way

Two men of old, they did prevail
Not a hair was burned nor smoke was smelled

Enoch and Elijah men of renown
Though Satan searched, he found them not

His treasure chest has overflowed
Though riches he disdains

It is only souls of men he seeks
The rich, the poor, the great, the low

It matters not to him of old
He takes them all into his fold

In darkness and dungeons deep
He keeps them there, his treasures to keep

But lo not the gates of hell prevail
Against He who is both mighty and lowly

For no one else could enter in
Yet escape the awesome darkest foe

As bubbles pop upon the froth
The tombs enclosed burst open forth

As light shines forth in brightest beams
Upon the earth and glistening seas

The dead rose up like shining stars
To brighten the heavens for all to see

The gate keeper has been trampled down
The gates he no longer keeps

For He who goes conquering forth
Has forever done away with him

And glorious shall our dwellings be
For those who put their trust in thee.

Ephraim The Syrian, One of the early Church Fathers inspired me to compose this poem.

Muslim Mocks Bible Teaching Flat Earth

A Graphic Interpretation Of A Biblical Earth And Heaven

Comment: The post below was taken from the site of a Muslim who was attempting to expose the Bible as a book of lies. I must say this dear chap did a wonderful job of accurately interpreting the Bible. 

I am reminded of the scripture that states, "What men mean for evil, God means for good." Be prepared to have your world shaken up and literally deflated by a Muslim!

The Bible says:  The Earth is flat!
The sections of this article are:
-  The Bible says:  The Earth is flat!
-  The flat Earth is established and can never move?!  The Sun hurries back to where
    it rises?! 
-  The Earth has pillars?!
-  The Earth has Edges?!  The wicked might get shaken off of it and fall off in

-  Does Isaiah 40:22 really say that Earth is Round?  The Earth is a flat circle?!
-  Christian Theologians' Commentaries that further suggest that the Earth 
    is flat. 
-  The light of the Universe and the flat earth's dimensions in the Bible.
-  Conclusion.
When it comes to scientific claims, the Bible has the dumbest claims, with all due respect to Jews and Christians.  The Bible claims that Earth has four ends and four corners.  Nobody can ever think a ball or a cycle to have corners and ends!  Only flat items can have corners and ends, and this is exactly what the bible is trying to express regarding the shape of the earth.  The earth is not flat, as once thought and it has no corners or ends at all.   If Magnetic Poles can be taken as ends or corners of earth, then this definitely opposed to the axis of rotation. 
Genesis 11:1-9
The Tower of Babel
1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech.
2 As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.
3 They said to each other, "Come, let's make bricks and bake them thoroughly." They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar.
4 Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth."
5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building.
6 The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.
7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."
8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city.
9 That is why it was called Babel —because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
Not only these verses are seriously very insulting to Allah Almighty because they present Him as a GOD who feared men, but they also reveal a very serious scientific blunder through suggesting that the earth is both flat and sitting still in the universe - something that is quite contrary to what the Holy Quran teaches.

Isaiah 11:12  
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH. (KJV)
Revelation 7:1 
1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. (KJV) 
Job 38:13 
13 That it might take hold of the ENDS OF THE EARTH, that the wicked might be shaken out of it? (KJV) 
Jeremiah 16:19 
19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ENDS OF THE EARTH, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. (KJV) 
Daniel 4:11 
11 The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the ENDS OF ALL THE EARTH: (KJV) 
Matthew 4:8 
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; (KJV) 
Astronomical bodies are spherical, and you cannot see the entire exterior surface from any place. The kingdoms of Egypt, China, Greece, Crete, sections of Asia Minor, India, Maya (in Mexico), Carthage (North Africa), Rome (Italy), Korea, and other settlements from these kingdoms of the world were widely distributed. 

The flat Earth is established and can never move?!  The Sun hurries back to where it rises?!
The Psalm 104:5 and Ecclesiastes 1:5 verses from the Bible in this section were sent to me by Abdullah Bisyir; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.
"He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.   (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 104:5)"
"The LORD reigns, he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed in majesty and is armed with strength.  The world [The deceiving translators should've said "earth", not "world"] is firmly established; it cannot be moved.   (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 93:1)"
"Say among the nations, "The LORD reigns."   The world [Again, the deceiving translators should've said "earth", not "world"] is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.  (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 96:10)"
"The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises.  (From the NIV Bible, Ecclesiastes 1:5)"
Well, I don't think there is any need for much explanation to the nonsense above!   It is crystal clear that the Bible is full of man-made corruptions and alterations.   Since when the Earth is flat and can never move?!  We all know that the Earth and the other planets rotate and move in space around the Sun.  Since when the Sun hurries back to where it rises, like if there is some hole it rises from and another hole it sets through on Earth?!
For those Jews and Christians who would like to see where in the Noble Quran does Allah Almighty say that the planets in space rotate and move, read the following Noble Verse:
"It is He who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, all (the celestial bodies) swim along, each in its orbit with its own motion.  (The Noble Quran, 21:33)"
For more information and other Noble Verses, please visit:

The Earth has pillars?!
"He shakes the earth from its place and makes its pillars tremble.  (From the NIV Bible, Job 9:6)"
"Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand.  (From the NIV Bible, Job 38:4)"

The Earth has Edges?!
"that it might take the earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it?  (From the NIV Bible, Job 38:13)"
"He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth.  (From the NIV Bible, Job 37:3)"
"for he views the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens.  (From the NIV Bible, Job 28:24)"
"Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea.  (From the NIV Bible, Job 11:9)"

Does Isaiah 40:22 really say that Earth is Round?
It is quite clear that the above Biblical Verses suggest and claim that the Earth is flat, has Edges, has Four Corners, has Pillars, and has Foundations.  No unbiased person would deny the straight forward quotes above.  Only the desperate biased Jews and Christians would.
Some desperate Christians have gone as far as presenting Isaiah 40:22 to try to prove that the Bible claims that the earth is round.
Let us look at what the Verse says:
"He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers.  He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.  (From the NIV Bible, Isaiah 40:22)"
First of all, a circle is not a ball or sphere or an egg-shaped object.  A circle is a flat round surface, similar to flat rectangular, or square, or triangular surfaces.   So if the Bible claims that the Earth is a circle, then this is still bogus because the earth is obviously not a flat surface.
We have two conditions here:
1- Isaiah 40:22 is claiming that the Earth is a flat circle.
2- Isaiah 40:22 is claiming that the Earth has a circle above it.
If we were to take condition #1, then we are left with a clear and irrefutable contradiction between Isaiah 40:22 and some of the Bible's verses that I mentioned above in the article, because a flat circle doesn't have "four corners", and ironically in either case, we still have a scientifically false claim about the Earth's shape.
IF we were to take condition #2, then it doesn't prove that the Earth is an egg-shaped figure, and Isaiah 40:22 surely becomes irrelevant to this subject.
One thing is for sure clear, and that is Isaiah 40:22 is obviously ambiguous and not clear if we wish to prove from it that the Earth is not flat and is egg-shaped.  If we look at what the entire Bible says (as presented above by all the Verses) about the shape of the Earth as the Roman Catholic Church did in the past, then we would reach the same conclusion they reached, and that is:  The Earth is Flat!
Certainly, when Christopher Columbus thought that he could reach India by going west in the Atlantic ocean instead of east as it was traditionally done, the Church in Europe was afraid that he will eventually reach the "end of the earth" and the "Edges of the earth" as the Bible clearly says above, and fall off into the space and die.
After he was able to convince the Queen that the adventure was worth the try, Christopher Columbus had survived several assassination attempts while he and his people were sailing in the ocean, because his Christian Church-believing mates were afraid and wanted to go back. 
When he finally found America, he thought he reached India.  That's why the North American Continent was called "India", and the Native Americans were called "Red Indians".
This is at least what I learned from my "US History" class when I was in High School.

Christian Theologians' Commentaries that further suggest that the Earth is flat:
The following is an email I received from brother Mohammed; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.
Subj:    (no subject)
Date:    4/24/02 8:22:58 AM Central Daylight Time
Assalamu alaikum Dear brother
Look at this Pre-scientific view: Ancient Pagan religions in the Mediterranean area and Middle East taught that the universe was quite tiny.  Earth is more or less flat, like a dinner plate.  Mountains around the edges held up a rigid dome which formed the sky.  The sun, moon, planets and stars traveled across the underside of the dome of the sky on a daily basis.  God sits on his throne in Heaven, which lies above the canopy.  This applies to Isaiah 40:22.
The site that is talking about this is at:
Further on we now have refuted those layman scholars who say the word in Isaiah means a Globe: EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN scholars who agree that Isaiah 40:22 does NOT speak of a spherical earth.  There are even Evangelical publishers of books and Bible commentaries who do NOT teach that Isaiah 40:22 speaks of a spherical earth.  BAKER BOOKS and evangelical publisher published the following book about Isaiah 40:22:
What You Know Might Not Be So: 220 Misinterpretations of Bible Texts Explained by David C. Downing Paperback (September 1987) Baker Book House; ISBN: 0801029759.
And EVANGELICALS now have a commentary on Genesis available which takes the ancient Near Eastern context of Genesis seriously.  It is Genesis, The NIV Application Commentary by John H. Walton (past professor of OT at Moody Bible Institute, and now at Wheaton),published by Zondervan, 2001.  
Although it is not a technical commentary like Gordon Wenham's, it is a solid scholarly piece of work.  759 pages, nearly half of which deal with Genesis 1-11.  Paul Seely, an Evangelical scholar, has even written a paper that was published in the WESTMINSTER REVIEW (an EVANGELICAL college), in which he says the following:
The Geographical Meaning of Earth Seas in Genesis 1:10 
by Paul Seely:
"There is one verse in the OT, however, which has often been cited at least by laymen as a proof that the earth was understood to be a globe.  I refer to Isaiah 40:22 which speaks of God as the One sitting above the circle of the earth.   This verse does imply that the earth is circular, but there is nothing either in the underlying Hebrew word (hug) or in the context which necessarily implies anything more than the circularity of the flat earth-disc which the historical context and Genesis 1 have given us as the meaning of.  If Isaiah had intended to speak of the earth as a globe, he would probably have used the word he used in 22:18 (dur), meaning 'ball.' "
For as E. J. Young noted, Isaiah 40:22 describes God as seated on the zenith, the highest point directly overhead.  Thus the verse implies that earth's dwellers, all mankind according to Psalm 33:13, 14, are clearly visible from a very high point directly overhead.  This imagery fits most naturally the conception of the earth below as a flat disc, not a globe.  For if the earth were a globe, part of all mankind namely earth's dwellers in Australia, Argentina, South Africa, etc... could not be seen from a point directly overhead.  One could force the issue by appealing to God's omniscience, but Isaiah 40:22 (as well as the other verses which mention God looking down) is focused on God's height above the earth; and his seeing all mankind is derived from that height.   That phrase "the circle of the earth" in no way implies sphericity is confirmed by the fact that in Egypt this phrase was used to refer to the earth as a flat circular disc.  So when interpreted within its historical and biblical context Isaiah 40:22 implies indeed that the earth is circular in shape but also that it is flat. 

The light of the Universe and the flat earth's dimensions in the Bible:
The following is an email I received from brother Mohammed Riaz M; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.
Here is excellent proof that the author of the corrupted bible thought that the earth was a flat one.
1. Job 37:33 He unleashes his lightning beneath the whole heaven and sends it to the ends of the earth.
Riaz : Lighting doesn't travel around the earth the biblical god thought his earth was a small, flat one.
2. Job 38:44 "Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation?Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it?
Riaz : If the author of the bible thought of a globe earth then the last question in job 38: 44 should of read "Who stretched a measuring line around it?"
Job 38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
Riaz : Does a sphere have ends, and how can you grab the ends of a sphere? Only a flat disc or square could be grabbed and shaken in this way.


The Bible not only failed to claim that the Earth was egg-shaped, but it also claimed in numerous verses as shown above that the Earth is flat, has Edges, has Four Corners, has Pillars, and has Foundations.  As I said above, no unbiased person would deny the obvious and embarrassing quotes above.  Only the desperate biased Jews and Christians would.

My Closing Comments

The Ancient Fathers of the Church interpreted the scriptures as teaching that the earth is flat and is covered by an impenetrable firmament. 

Within this firmament are located the sun, the moon and the stars. Planets are merely wandering stars or luminaries with no physicalness to their structure. 

The sun and moon are disk shaped luminaries identical in size and approximately 32 miles across and approximately two to four thousand miles from earth. 

The sun, moon and stars are revolve around the earth which is the center of the universe. That's right folks, it was all made just for us by our Creator God.

There is so much more to say on this topic and as much as you may be thinking that I have lost my mind, then I must say I'm in good company with the ancient Church Fathers and the Word of God.

St. Basil the Great And Flat Earth

This is a splendid work spilling over with refreshing waters of truth from one of the great teachers and illuminators of truth given to the Church for her edification and sanctity. 

St. Basil gifted and inspired by God lays for us a firm, immovable foundation on which to stand and if we so choose to stand on that foundation, we will not be moved by any force from any place beside, below or above.

Glory to God for His perfect provisions for His people that we should never thirst or hunger for He has given us St. Basil as a protector and shepherd to guide, help and feed us as we journey through the green peaceful pastures and the hard, steep, rocky terrains of this world.

The Hexaemeron Homily II

by St. Basil the Great

"In the beginning God created the heavens and earth"

Question: Why do heavy objects fall to the ground, such as an apple from a tree which Newton describes as evidence of gravity?

Answer: Gravity is only a theory to support a globe earth. On a flat earth as Basil explains it is simply weight or density that causes such an action.

7. “Now, as according to their nature, heaven occupies the higher and earth the lower position in space, (one sees, in fact, that all which is light ascends towards heaven, and heavy substances fall to the ground); as therefore height and depth are the points the most opposed to each other it is enough to mention the most distant parts to signify the inclusion of all which fills up intervening Space.”

Question: Does the earth spin at 1,000 mph while orbiting the sun at 60,000 mph and traveling through a so-called vast universe at 500,000 mph as is taught by modern science or is the earth set immovable on a foundation?

Question: Do not ‘supports’ imply immovableness?

Question: Does not the earth ‘resting upon itself', imply stillness?

9. "Do you suppose that a heavier body prevents the earth from falling into the abyss? Then you must consider that this support needs itself a support to prevent it from failing. Can we imagine one? Our reason again demands yet another support, and thus we shall fall into the infinite, always imagining a base for the base which we have already found. And the further we advance in this reasoning the greater force we are obliged to give to this base, so that it may be able to support all the mass weighing upon it. Put then a limit to your thought, so that your curiosity in investigating the incomprehensible may not incur the reproaches of Job, and you be not asked by him, "Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened?" If ever you hear in the Psalms, "I bear up the pillars of it;" see in these pillars the power which sustains it. Because what means this other passage, "He hath founded it upon the sea," if not that the water is spread all around the earth? How then can water, the fluid element which flows down every declivity, remain suspended without ever flowing? You do not reflect that the idea of the earth suspended by itself throws your reason into a like but even greater difficulty, since from its nature it is heavier. But let us admit that the earth rests upon itself, or let us say that it rides the waters, we must still remain faithful to thought of true religion and recognize that all is sustained by the Creator's power. Let us then reply to ourselves, and let us reply to those who ask us upon what support this enormous mass rests, "In His hands are the ends of the earth." It is a doctrine as infallible for our own information as profitable for our hearers.”

Question: Does the phrase, “the world never falls”, imply it is not falling, it is not moving?

Question: Is the sun the center of our universe as is taught by modern science?

10. “Do not then be surprised that the world never falls: it occupies the centre of the universe, its natural place."

Comment: This statement changes all the rules of modern science! The scientists of our day are painting St. Basil as the fool and themselves as the wise men. 
"The earth was invisible and unfinished"

Question: Does the earth revolve around the sun as is taught by modern science or does the sun revolve around the earth?

Comment: Modern science throws us off track by claiming that the sun is 93 millions miles away with a 432,000 mile radius. The ancients measured the sun as the same size as the moon with a 32 mile radius and approximately 3,000 miles up in the heavens."

8. "Thus, every time that, in the revolution of the sun, evening and morning occupy the world, their periodical succession never exceeds the space of one day."

On the Firmament

Comment: The firmament above appears as a spherical or concave body to us as we look up but it is not necessarily convex on the other side such as is the case with a cave which appears to us as concave but on the other side is a mass of rock and not convex and could very well even be a body of water under which is located a cavernous space. Such may be the scenario in which we live. 

No one has ever seen the other side of the firmament because it is impenetrable. The luminaries are all contained within the first heaven which is contained within and under the firmament."

4. "And God said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters front the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament." Before laying hold of the meaning of Scripture let us try to meet objections from other quarters. We are asked how, if the firmament is a spherical body, as it appears to the eye, its convex circumference can contain the water which flows and circulates in higher regions? What shall we answer? One thing only: because the interior of a body presents a perfect concavity it does not necessarily follow that its exterior surface is spherical and smoothly rounded. Look at the stone vaults of baths, and the structure of buildings of cave form; the dome, which forms the interior, does not prevent the roof from having ordinarily a flat surface. Let these unfortunate men cease, then, from tormenting us and themselves about the impossibility of our retaining water in the higher regions.”

Question: Modern science claims we live on a sphere. If this is so, given the natural God endowed qualities of water, how is that the waters don’t fall off the face of the earth as would be seen in a simple experiment when water is poured over a globular object? Who will you trust, modern science or St. Basil?

Comment: The natural attraction of water is to flow downwards and to rest upon the earth, (not under or beside a globe), filling whatever cavity it inhabits always seeking for equilibrium.

5. "But let us continue our explanation: "Let it divide the waters from the waters." The mass of waters, which from all directions flowed over the earth, and was suspended in the air, was infinite, so that there was no proportion between it and the other elements. Thus, as it has been already said, the abyss covered the earth. We give the reason for this abundance of water. None of you assuredly will attack our opinion; not even those who have the most cultivated minds, and whose piercing eye can penetrate this perishable and fleeting nature; you will not accuse me of advancing impossible or imaginary theories, nor will you ask me upon what foundation the fluid rests. By the same reason which makes them attract the earth, heavier than water, from the extremities of the world to suspend it in the centre, they will grant us without doubt that it is due both to its natural attraction downwards and its general equilibrium, that this immense quantity of water rests motionless upon the earth.”

Comment: The sun travels from one region to the next. Note that St. Basil doesn’t say that the earth travels around the sun but just the contrary, the sun travels around the earth.

7. "Besides, we see that the great wisdom of Him who governs all, makes the sun travel from one region to another, for fear that, if it remained always in the same place, its excessive heat would destroy the order of the universe. Now it passes into southern regions about the time of the winter solstice, now it returns to the sign of the equinox; from thence it betakes itself to northern regions during the summer solstice, and keeps up by this imperceptible passage a pleasant temperature throughout all the world.”

Comment: I would suggest that the translator of this particular text had a bias to assume that St. Basil meant planet when he most likely meant earth."

7  "thanks to the singular virtue of this planet...”

Here is the definition of a planet:

Planet - a celestial body distinguished from the fixed stars by having an apparent motion of its own... a celestial body moving in an elliptical orbit around a star.

Note: The historical definition of the word planet is not synonymous with globe or sphere and modern science even admits that the definition of the word, ‘planet’ is evolving, which is convenient for their ever changing models.

This definition is contrary to all St. Basil wrote on the this subject. Throughout his writings, he refers to the sun, moon and stars as luminaries and discs revolving around a fixed earth.

Additionally, modern science further confuses the true nature of creation by referring to the planets as celestial bodies rather than stars, luminaries or discs. The Church Fathers oftentimes refer to these so called planets as wandering stars or luminaries.

The Hexaemeron

Homily IV

by St. Basil the Great

"Upon the gathering together of the waters"

1. "Heaven, poised like a dome, to quote the words of the prophet; earth, this immense mass which rests upon itself...”

Comment: Here again we see reference to a dome which contains the first heaven above. As St. Basil stated earlier in this discourse, a dome has a foundation upon which it is firmly situated and that foundation is the earth.

Here again, the earth is resting upon itself...Does this infer that the earth is spinning on an axis faster than a speeding bullet while at the same time hurling though the universe at an inconceivable speed of 60,000 mph while our universe is moving even faster through space at an incomprehensible 500,000 mph? This scenario painted by modern science is pure lunacy mocking the gullibility of mankind, the Scriptures, the Holy Fathers and the Lord Himself."

2. " Hear then how Scripture explains itself. "Let the waters be gathered together, and let the dry land appear." The veil is lifted and allows the earth, hitherto invisible, to be seen. Perhaps you will ask me new questions. And first, is it not a law of nature that water flows downwards? Why, then, does Scripture refer this to the fiat of the Creator? As long as water is spread over a level surface, it does not flow; it is immovable. But when it finds any slope, immediately the foremost portion falls, then the one that follows takes its place, and that one is itself replaced by a third. Thus incessantly they flow, pressing the one on the other, and the rapidity of their course is in proportion to the mass of water that is being carried, and the declivity down which it is borne. If such is the nature of water, it was supererogatory to command it to gather into one place. It was bound, on account of its natural instability, to fall into the most hollow part of the earth and not to stop until the leveling of its surface. We see how there is nothing so level as the surface of water.”

Comment: Here St. Basil provides us with a beautiful definition of water which is contrary to what modern science would have to believe about water. Modern science tells us that water flows upwards or north in steams and rivers yet this is contrary to nature. On a sphere water contradicts the laws of nature by flowing upward whenever it is flowing north but we don’t live on a sphere, we live on a flat earth, therefore water may flow north and still be flowing downward.

Modern science would have to believe that water naturally curves around a spherical earth again contradicting the law of nature which states that water always levels itself.
St. Basil teaches that water doesn’t stop flowing until a leveling surface is created. Whatever space water fills, it always seek to level itself. He even goes so far as to say that nothing is so level as the surface of water. This is why builders have always used a bubble in water to determine a perfect level.

All bodies of water on the earth are level because we live on a flat earth. This is a sensible, logical and intelligent statement.

Glory to St. Basil for enabling us to maintain sanity and reason in a world gone mad.
