Who’s Telling the Truth about the Earth?

There are massive differences between NASA’s description of the natural world, and the Bible’s description. When faced with such opposing models of the cosmos we must ask ourselves who is telling the truth. Should we believe NASA or the Bible?

The Bible Tells Us the Earth Doesn’t Move

NASA tells us the earth is spinning at the speed of 1,040 mph while traveling around the sun at 66,000 mph, and our solar system is hurling through the Milky Way galaxy at 490,000 mph, and the Milky Way galaxy is careening through infinite space at the unbelievable speed of 1,000,000 mph.

The Earth Cannot Be Moved

  • 1 Chronicles 16:30 “…the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.”
  • Psalm 93:1 “…the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.”
  • Psalm 96:10 “…the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved…”
  • Psalm 104:5 “Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.”

The Earth Has Foundations

  • Job 38:4 “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?…”
  • Job 38:6 “Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof…”
  • Psalm 82:5 “…the foundations of the earth…”
  • Psalm 104:5 “Who laid the foundations of the earth…”
  • Isaiah 24:18 “…and the foundations of the earth do shake.”
  • Isaiah 48:13 “Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth…”
  • Jeremiah 31:37 “…and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath…”
  • Micah 6:2 “…strong foundations of the earth…”

The Earth Has Pillars

  • 1 Samuel 2:8 “…for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them.”
  • Job 9:6 “Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.”

  • Isaiah 66:1 “…the earth is my footstool…”
  • Matthew 5:35 “Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool…”
  • Acts 7:49 “…earth is my footstool…”

The Bible Tells Us the Earth is Flat

NASA tells us the earth is a sphere and that “gravitational forces” are what keep us from falling off a spinning ball. But gravity is just a hoax invented by Freemason Isaac Newton. There is no scientific proof for the existence of gravity, just as there is no scientific proof the earth is a sphere. On the contrary, all evidence is in support of the earth being flat. (Check out 200 Proofs Earth is Not a Spinning Ball.)

The Earth is a Circle

  • Isaiah 40:22 “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers.” Note: Isaiah knew the difference between a circle and a ball, since Isaiah 22:18 reads, “toss thee like a ball”. In Hebrew, circle and ball are different words. The Hebrew word for “like a ball” is: kad-dūr כַּדּ֕וּר, whereas “the circle” is translated ḥūḡ ח֣וּג.

The Earth Has Length and Breadth

  • Job 11:9 “The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.”
  • Job 38:5 “Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?”
  • Job 38:18 “Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.”

The Earth Has Four Corners, Four Quarters, Four Winds

  • Isaiah 11:12 “…the four corners of the earth.”

The Bible Tells Us the Earth Is Covered by a Firmament Dome

NASA tells us all that exists beyond the earth’s atmosphere is “outer space”, a seemingly endless vacuum where only a few particles of dust and a few molecules of various random gases float around in a void. The Bible, however, tells us there are waters above the earth, and that a firmament divides the waters above the earth’s atmosphere from the waters on the earth.

  • Genesis 1:7 “And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.”
  • Genesis 1:8 “And God called the firmament Heaven.”
  • Genesis 1:14 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven…”
  • Genesis 1:15 “…let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth…”
  • Genesis 1:17 “And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth…”
  • Genesis 1:20 “…and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.”

  • Daniel 12:3 “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament…”
  • Amos 9:6 “…And has founded His vaulted dome over the earth…” (NASV)
  • Ezekiel 1:22 “And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.”
  • Ezekiel 1:25 “And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads…”
  • Ezekiel 1:26 “And above the firmament that was over their heads…”

The Bible Tells Us the Sun, Moon & Stars are in the Firmament

NASA tells us the sun is 93 million miles away, the moon is 238,000 miles away, and the stars are light-years away. However, all scientific evidence points to the sun, moon, and stars being quite near. For a review of the evidence, consider how we can zoom in on the moon and stars with commercial cameras, and how crepuscular sun rays prove the nearness of the sun.

  • Genesis 1:15 “…let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth…”
  • Genesis 1:16 “And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.”

  • Genesis 1:18 “God set these lights in the expanse of the sky to shine upon the earth…”

  • Revelation 9:1 “…I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth…”
  • Revelation 12:4 “And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth…”

The Bible Tells Us the Sun is in Motion

NASA tells us the earth rotates around a stationary sun, but nothing about the heliocentric model of the universe has ever been scientifically proven. The Bible, however, tells us both the sun and the moon move. Here’s a 13-minute video explaining how the sun moves above flat earth.

  • Genesis 15:17 “…when the sun went down, and it was dark…”
  • Genesis 19:23 “The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.”

  • Judges 14:18 “…on the seventh day before the sun went down…”
  • Judges 19:14 “…and the sun went down upon them when they were by Gibeah…”

  • Matthew 5:45 “…for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good…”

The Bible Tells Us the Sun, Moon & Stars are Unique Luminaries

NASA tells us the sun is basically a star that is closer to earth than all the other stars. They also tell us the moon is a solid rock ball that merely reflects the light of the sun. What NASA is saying, then, is there is only one type of light source in the universe: suns (our sun, the moon reflecting our sun, and all the stars which are just far away suns).

  • Psalm 147:4 “He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.”

  • Revelation 21:23 “…the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it…”

The Bible Tells Us Heaven is Above the Earth

NASA tells us the earth is a spinning ball in constant motion with no fixed location in the universe. That makes it mighty difficult to imagine where God and heaven might be, which is precisely their aim. But the Bible tells us very clearly where heaven is located. Heaven is quite literally directly above the earth, and the earth is directly under heaven.

  • Acts 4:12 “…there is none other name under heaven given among men…”
  • Colossians 1:23 “…which was preached to every creature which is under heaven…”

The Bible Tells Us God is in Heaven

NASA’s whole aim is to convince us there is no Creator and Overseer of the earth and its inhabitants. But the Bible tells us God is our Creator, and that he dwells in heaven directly above us.

Who Will You Believe?

The Bible is God’s Word. In this article I’ve listed 218 Bible verses describing the nature of our dwelling place on the earth, and the location of God’s dwelling place directly above us in heaven. Are you going to believe God, who created everything and cannot lie? Or are you going to believe what NASA tells you, despite the total lack of scientific and observable evidence?
