Pfft.

You're clearly not reading it with the right confirmation bias; cognitive dissonance; guidance of the Holy Spirit, yeah, that's it...

The heavens are the LORD's heavens,
but the earth he has given to the children of man.
(Psalm 115:16 ESV)


The Earth is the only part of the universe that was created for us. He hasn't revealed his purpose in creating the rest of the universe.

It's so that when Humanity learned "The Firmament" was a lie, God and the Angels had an entire universe to hide in so that they would only be accessible to Faith Telescopes.

Well, that and the Cylons. But you'll find out about them soon enough.

“It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.”

Until they have destroyed the human toast.

Literal holes in the firmament, the divide between the waters of the ocean, and the waters of the heavens. You know, because that's why the sky is blue...it's all water up there, sitting on top of a giant dome...according to the bible.

And the stars are the holes in the firmament, the "floodgates" through which "God" let the waters flood through, killing 99.999...% of all living things on the earth, because he loved us so much.

Do you know what verse that is?

Here's what the ancient Hebrews believed:
Bible Science Debunked Wrote:The ancient Hebrews imagined the world as flat and round [disk], covered by the great solid dome of the firmament which was held up by mountain pillars, (Job 26:11; 37:18). The blue color of the sky was attributed to the chaotic waters that the firmament separated from the earth (Gen. 1:7). The earth was thus surrounded by waters above and below (Gen. 1:6,7; cf. Psalms 24:2; 148:4, Deut. 5:8). The firmament was thought to be substantial; it had pillars (Job 26:11) and foundations (2 Sam. 22:8). When the windows of it were opened, rain fell (Gen. 7:11-12; 8:2). The sun, moon, and stars moved across or were fixed in the firmament (Gen. 1:14-19; Ps. 19:4,6). It was also the abode of the birds (Gen. 1:20; Deut. 4:17). Within the earth lay Sheol, the realm of the dead (Num. 16:30-33; Isa. 14:9,15)."
