2. COSMIC MEASUREMENTS are a Waste of Time!
Prov. 25:3 Straightforward Scriptural statement - man can't measure it!
Jer. 31:37 If mankind succeeds in measuring the heavens, G-D will break His covenant with Israel (NOT going to happen!)
Mankind is confined in a limited inertial frame, and so extrapolates distances based on preconceived evolutionary models. So, endless inverse-square exrapolations such as the Hubble Parameter are futile
First, it is essential to conclude that since the cosmos was created in the way previously described, huge red-shift measurements do NOT equate to time or distance indicators. Red-shifts' primary cause is NOT the gradual separation of masses. MAKE NO MISTAKE, this is NOT the ancient half-shell vault model discussed on other sites. but a dynamic, active, receding universal water shroud.
Use of Red-Shift Readings
And RED SHIFTED LIGHT does NOT prove how big it is! Yes, we are aware of the red-shift, Fraunhofer lines, and vogue interpretation of z-factors of red shifted light. But willful ignorance of a water-derived and water-shielded universe does not disprove the fact that in THIS model, red shift cannot possibly indicate age or distance.
Precision and high degree of success mark ESA's Hipparcos, which has measured out to 326 LY (100 parsecs) to within 10% accuracy. http://www.astronomy.ohio-state.edu/~pogge/Ast162/Unit1/distances.html Still, with plausible uneven stretching of the Rakia, beginning in our very neighborhood, viability of calibrating larger measuring methods is dubious. Extrapolations are potentially greatly skewed, not by this instrument's margin of error, but by unknowns in the nature of the cosmos itself.
Callibrate the Hubble Parameter?
The gold standard of distance measurement is triangulation. VLBI greatly increases resolution by the precision of atomic time clocks in tandem with many telescopes across continents and even in space. By more accurately resolving closer objects, this method attempts to calibrate the Hubble Parameter. Using cosmic gas masers to assume star formation (NEVER been directly observed to happen), then extrapolating by spiral density wave theory, it comes up with distances of 100s of millions of LYs.
Oviform (Egged) Energy Fronts
Ever see an egg-shaped firework front? If there were no interference from Earth's gravity, it would likely be a lot "rounder". Elliptical wave fronts are NOT rare in our universe...
Elliptical Fronts in Space?
This famous HST image clearly shows one (of many) non-spherical wave fronts in nearby space. If many nearby radio fronts are elliptical as well, we have highly skewed data by which we calibrate further distances. Error factors are ENORMOUS! The next 2 slides illustrate this problem.
Do we think we know for certain what has caused all of the non-spherical shapes in space? Wave-front readings on an ovi-form, even with atomic-time-clock precision. couldn't yield accurate results for building extrapolated distances. (inserted planetary nebulae images credit: NASA, HSTScI)
NOT implying that we are measuring the Voyager's flights by VLBI, only that their encounter of heliopause implies an egg-shaped wavefront around our solar system. (NOT a "dented" solar system.") Measuring eggs instead of spheres would destroy atomic time-clock calibration accuracy of even VLBI- Very Long Base Interferometry! http://voyager.jpl.nasa.gov/news/voyager_squashed.html
Water on Exo-Planets
"If there was WATER out there, we'd know it!" ...maybe NOT! Current tech is to sense water by shifts in infrared light caused by the atmospheres of exo-planets filtering light from their star. Ingenious...but what about all of the volume of water that must be out there which is NOT light-filtered? It is invisible to us!
Time to choose: Believe G-D's Word-- or believe man's endless extrapolations? Cosmic measurement is futile. It does NOT put G-D at an irrelevant distance. and when HE chooses to split the heavens, His throne will still be revealed, right where it always has been, "...on the sides of the North!"
