2But beware! not somehow believe that the universe could even be the size of 7500 light years.For behold, the stars, i.e. the heavenly bodies in the end of the 8
, were sawed from the veryfirst moment! The light
did not need billions nor even thousands of years to reach Earth
, but only
, as do say the Scripture and the Fathers:"The air was lighted up, or rather made the light circulate mixed with its substance, and,
distributing its splendour rapidly in every direction
, so dispersed itself to its extreme limits. Up itsprang to the very aether and heaven.
In an instant
it lighted up the whole extent of the world, the North and the South, the East and the West. For the aether also is such a subtle substance and sotransparent
that it needs not the space of a moment for light to pass through it
. Just as it carries our sight instantaneously to the object of vision,
so without the least interval,
with a rapidity that thought cannot conceive
) And then the whole mythology of light-years
has to be thrown away
without some hesitationand compassion, being also a lie that is based on heliocentrism, evolutionism and Darwinism, i.e. somany heresies and blasphemies against God, His creation and revelation.Let's see what this tells us about the allegations of so-called cutting-edge theories of the BigBang, which involves an ever-expanding universe, which currently has the daunting size shown above:"When I consider Thy
, the works of Thy fingers,
the moon and the stars, which Thouhast ordained.
" (Psalm 8:3)"His going forth is
from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto
of it" (Ps. 19:6)"By the word of the Lord
were the heavens made
." (Ps. 33:6)"Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain" (Ps. 104:2)Blessed Theodoret of Cyrus interpretation: "It taught them theeasiness of creation: that, as to man is as easy to stretch the skin and makethe tent, so God has stretched all the great vaults of heaven just saying theword."That picture is clear as possible here: the extent of the curtain. Butthis "stretching" of the heavens like a curtain and it happened in aninstant. And the curtain, eh? when its size remains large and is in no waya balloon to inflate all the time.Again, we have not mentioned that the universe is strictly limited,and as we know from actual teaching, limited by the waters above. So nochance for an expanding universe.And if we ask ourselves what was the original purpose of inducing large-scale extravaganza, we shall immediately see their directconnection with heliocentrism and evolution. Let us remember that the starry sky - the 8
- the farthestfrom Earth makes a complete revolution around the earth in daytime.
Here is required the knowledge of the scriptural and patristic astronomy, see in this respect the
Light is said to travel straight at the rate of about 195,000 English miles a second; a velocity estimated byobservations on the eclipses of Jupiter's satellites. The modern undulatory theory of light, of which Huyghens (/-1695) is generally regarded as the author, describes light as propagated by the vibrations of the imponderablematter termed Ether or Aether.
