If this guy is so incredibly fucking stupid and/or dishonest to think that the words "foundation" (an OBVIOUS analogy indicating the ancient belief that the Earth is flat**) and "cornerstone" are suggestive of the way planets form as discovered by modern science, let alone a remotely adequate summary thereof, then you're probably wasting your time. Nonetheless, the further points raised:
Another dumb luck guess huh. A Jewish guy 2000 yrs ago knew what Einstein did not believe at first that the universe came out of nothing.
And of course, that's missing the fact that modern science doesn't include "god" in theories as to how the universe formed. Neither is the "unseen" the same as "nothing", but never mind that, right?
God points out to Job light and darkness has a physicality and location. They have locations and travel.
These are concepts just discovered. If fact darkness was just recently just thought of the absence of light. God points out to Job it is a physical thing. As it turns out the majority of the universe is made up of this stuff.
Did you know what God knew and told Job?
When did you know it? A few yrs ago?
LMAO. "Dark matter" and "dark energy" are placeholder names for entities we can detect indirectly, but we don't yet understand fully, in part because they don't interact with light. They are only "dark" because they aren't illuminated. Darkness itself is not the same thing; that is indeed the absence of light.
Most open star clusters, (and the Pleiades are one of the brightest and best in our
night sky), are certainly loosely gravitatonally bound.
And true, most constellation stars are not gravitationally
bound, but simply a line-of-sight arrangement as seen from
So, he admits that they're bound by gravity, and not by chains.
There is no way Job or anyone could have known about gravitational binding of constellation clusters.
Im sure you knew of these facts though.
You didn't just learn of these things did you?
That is not what the passage says, though, is it? It speaks of the "chains of the Pleiades", that's nothing to suggest that the writer of Job knew about gravitational binding, as opposed to merely being a poetic description of the order of the universe. Show me anything to indicate that the ancient Hebrews knew anything resembling modern physics. And that takes more than creatively interpreted poetry, as anyone who has had to solve actual physics problems would know.
Yeah, this guy is a dishonest idiot with too much time on his hands.
** BTW: while the Bible is vague about the overall shape of the Earth, and at one point describes it being suspended over nothing at all at one point, it does speak of the "corners of the Earth" and the "pillars of the Earth" elsewhere: showing that it is a compilation of multiple documents, and not a single book at all. The ancient Greeks knew that the Earth was round, but then, they knew geometry and empirical natural philosophy.
