A 450-page manuscript was examined in 1963 by Romanian engineer Doru Todericiu in Sibiu’s national archive (former Hermannstadt). Todericiu examined the manuscript’s scientific and technological substance before classifying it as a work on various artillery and ballistics difficulties, despite the fact that it had previously been known as such. He learned that Conrad Haas, the author of the manuscript’s third section, had written about some amazing concepts related to rocketry.
There’s an amazing book called “Secrets of the Lost Race” Renee Noorbergen that speaks of similar documents some much older. Pretty cool article.
Interesting, but mistaken. There is no rocket trip to the moon or anywhere else. God put the Firmament in place to protect His creation, Earth. Space isn’t real. Earth is a plane, not flat but definitely not a globe…especially one that spins @ 1000 mph or revolves around the sun @ 66,600 mph.
You are contradicting other posts, do you have proof?
@romanschapter9 , @444gem could you please help john understand that the earth is a globe same as the moon, that space, time, and everything in this universe is real, not some kind of software.
best refutation I have for flat earth is scripture itself:
Psalm 103 says that God removes are sin from us “as far as the east is from the west” On a “flat earth” that distance is a finite distance. On a globe, like ours, that distance is infinitely far. Infinite grace from our infinitely good, merciful and just God. Amen and Amen.
There’s also Isaiah 40:22 “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.” “Circle” is from the Hebrew word “khoog,” which can also mean “sphere,” and more accurately refers to a shape that can be drawn with a compass. That is, any shape, 2D or 3D, with a fixed radius.
My own direct observations and measurements have proven a spherical earth. I’ve seen snowcapped mountains rise above the horizon as I drove towards them in a manner exactly consistent with a spherical earth, and I have measured the relative height of a mountain in the distance against the height of buildings, showing the mountain to be around a curve. I have looked at where an island should be across the water and seen nothing but blue sky, and where a city should be but only saw the mountains behind it. All consistent with a round earth.
The radial acceleration of an object to stay on the surface of a spinning earth at the equator is .025 m/s^2, well below the gravitational attraction of 9.8 m/s^2. This means that a man who weighs 180 lbs would have a measured weight of 179.5 lbs at the equator, so throwing out a massive speed at the equator doesn’t actually prove anything.
I have also witnessed rocket launches and seen satellites moving across the early night sky.
Do a word study on raqiyyah and see what it actually means. It doesn’t mean FIRMament. It refers to something that is hammered out, like a sheet of gold, and more refers to how it was formed: that is, by stretching. This is likely the edge of the universe, which was stretched like a tent (Psalm 104:2), causing the highly uniform microwave background radiation and allowing for mature-looking galaxies even at the edge of the universe. See Dr. Russel Humphreys’ cosmology for an example.
Don’t fall for the “secret” knowledge that is not knowledge, but falsehood. It is common to desire special knowledge that others don’t have, and what knowledge is more special and rare than what is false? Obviously false “knowledge” is shunned by everyone, so of course it seems special, allowing one to say “I know something you don’t. You’re blind, a sheep. I am enlightened. I am better than you.” Are you prideful in your “knowledge”?
