The Earth Hangs in Space
Written Approx. 3000 B.C the book of Job exclaims that the Earth is hung upon nothing, or that the earth hangs in space. All the cultures around the world believed the earth was hung on different mythological beasts. All claims without any concept of how the Earth was really ‘hung on nothing.’
Discovered in 1475 by Copernicus, astronomers found that the Earth hangs literally on nothing, that the Earth hangs in space. It is free floating in space. Ancient cultures typically defined astronomy on basic human understanding. Their understanding correlated to objects and experiences from their daily lives.
- Hindus believed that the Earth was held on the back of four elephants standing on the back of a cosmic turtle, Akupara.
- In Greek mythology, it was believed that the god Atlas held the earth upon his back, written by the poet Hesiod.
- The Norse mythology exclaims the Earth; along with 8 other worlds are help up by a giant ash tree, Yggdrasil.
Some critics will state that the Earth is hung in ether and that space it not literally nothing. Additionally, space is ‘something’ according to modern physics and relativity. As you examine the facts that the earth is held in place by gravitational forces, and that the earth in ‘the midst’ of ether, not actually ‘hung on ether,’ the bibles claims that the earth is literally ‘hung on nothing’ still stands correct because it is not placed on anything.
There is literally nothing that is holding the earth up. It is a scientific fact that objects in space work differently than ‘weights’ work as an observer experience on earth. Astronomic objects are propelled by gravitational forces and massive objects freely float in space.
