Macrogravity and Microgravity

I am so sick and tired of our schools teaching the religion of "Gravity" to our kids.

Now, I understand how some people can be so deceived by the Godless ramblings of Issac Newton. Drop an apple, and it falls. That's their so-called evidence of "microgravity" only.

But the Satanic lie doesn't stop there. Newton, in a direct slap to God's face, invented off the top of his head, this insane idea of "macrogravity!" That the same "force" that pulls the apple to the ground is somehow related to what moves the Earth around the sun! Can you believe this nonsense?

Can they prove it? Nope! Then why push their godless gravity in our classrooms? As part of the plot to push the evil Newtonian agenda, that's why!

Now, all of us True Christians (TM) know that this is yet another one of Satan's lies to deceive and persecute the believers. We all know that it is the hand of God that pulls the apple to the Earth. So much for Microgravity. And this fable of macrogravity is contrary to Biblical teachings, so it must be false too.

True Christians (TM) accept Ptolemy's Biblical view of our solar system: The Earth is fixed at the center of all creation, just where God put it, and the sun, moon, and other planets are in fixed orbits around it, as part of a celstial mechanism controlled from without by the Almighty, the "prime mover."

Holy Scripture supports this:

Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel: "O Sun, stand still over Gibeon, O moon, over the valley of Aijaion." So the sun stood still. And the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies. As it is written in the book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. --Joshua 10:12-13

The sun had to move around the Earth for the LORD to make it stop, doesn't it? Look out your window! The sun is clearly moving around the Earth, and it does so because God, who can stop the sun, also moves it along! And yet we allow our children's minds to be poisoned by this unprovable fairy tale about "Laws" of Gravity.

What are you going to believe, the Bible, or some myth about invisible "forces" pulling rocks together?

I totally agree, microgravity may have been observed, but there's no evidence for macrogravity holding galaxies together, it hasn't been observed in the lab.

Do you know nobody even knows what "gravity" is? They've never even seen it, yet they continue to indoctrinate young minds everywhere with this so-called "gravity".

I, for one, am all for getting warning labels slapped on text books.

Funny you brought that scripture up Nathan. That one bothered me enough to comment on it when I used to attend an actual Church service. Noone got it.

IF the Earth TRULY stopped rotating... i.e. the Sun stood still....

WHAT exactly kept everything on the Earth's surface from shooting off into outer space...

I mean, a body in motion does tend to remain in motion...

Does this mean they battled flying through Outer Space?

I agree, call Jesse Jackson, Reverend Sharpton,
break out the picket signs;

Hey.. MY view of Gravity is the ONLY truth to Gravity.
You're microgravity 'myth' is based upon Pagan, Babylonian,
and Early Greek mythology.

I know this because the guy next door told me so.

Henry Drummond used that one in Inherit the Wind. Figure the Earth is about 25,000 miles around (give or take), and it makes a complete rotation in 24 hours. That gives it a rotation speed of about 1,042 MPH.

Now, if I were in a car travelling at that speed, and we suddenly hit a brick wall and came to a dead stop...

Of course, this is just more evidence against macrogravity. The sun must have been what stopped, because stopping the Earth would've caused worldwide catastrophe. And God clearly said He'd never do that again (after He wiped out all life on Earth with a flood.)

Hilarious!!!!!


Your satire reminded me of another one on the Satanic notion of gravity from another poster S2Focus in response to a creationist, Vanderzyden.


Posted by S2Focus in response to:
Vanderzyden, when he said:

I still maintain that there is not even a faint comparison. The law of gravity is observed all the time, has been repeatedly verified to a high degree of accuracy, and underlies many, many technologies. Macroevolution is presently only a fantastical idea.

No -- what you have observed is "microgravity". Microgravity is responsible for causing objects to fall straight to the ground when you drop them. The notion that you can extrapolate this concept of "microgravity" to explain the orbital motion of planets around the sun is just plain silly. Macrogravity, which allegedly governs planetary motion is presently only a "fantastical" idea. Microgravity induces straight-line motion of objects to the ground. But planets follow elliptical paths in their orbits; they do not move in the straight-line motion resulting from the effects of "microgravity".

Microgravity can be demonstrated repeatedly in laboratory experiments; macrogravity cannot. Your faith in the theory of macrogravity is nothing more than unfounded religious faith.

If you dispute this, then please provide irrefutable proof that the force of gravity that causes apples to fall in a straight line to the ground is also responsible for the elliptical orbital motion of planets around the sun.
The Wages of Gravity

How are we supposed to take these "experts" seriously when they cannot even reconcile quantum gravity with relativistic gravity! And what is this nonsense about matter bending space? YOu can't bend space! Space has never been bent in a lab. If gravity is real, then where is it's opposite? The opposite of light is dark, the opposite of good is evil, the opposite of positive charge is negative. So where is the anti-gravity huh. Make the apple fall up for once. Oh, and BTW an apple NEVER fell on Newton's head - he made it all up. Therefore this gravity stuff is total nonsense. ANd if you choose to beleive in this religion of massive objects attracting each other then you will pay for it for all of eternity!!!
