When getting aware that the world is not a globe, generally, at first at least, people feel dizzy. Then many questions come to the mind. So, today, I want to explain why such a lie has been so long brought about. Why has the attribution of a spherical shape to the Earth been reputed essential? It was, of course, a concept of great consequence and of the utmost importance from the point of view of some global political establishment ruling the world.
I know that not many of my readers are religious persons. So I ask you, in the case you were not a believer, a special cognitive effort. We’ll try to give an explanation of power starting from the Bible. Not only from the very beginning of the human history but even before. I’m going to ask you to admit God and creation, maybe just for a moment. I know that, if you are not a believer, you won’t find it easy. Certainly, you’ll be rather reluctant, but please, let’s try. This way you will probably get more and more aware of the actual mechanisms that are ruling the world. Thinking differently than your usual can help in getting a deeper consciousness. So, are you ready? Consider it just as an exercise. A mental, fascinating exercise. Try to concentrate shutting away your normal point of view.
The ruler of the world
So, we start: God, among other, creates the Earth, with all its vegetation, the animals and, to crown it all, man. Then, an angel, when seeing the first human couple, began to desire for himself the worship should be reserved to God. This angel rebelled, causing the fall of thousands of other angels and eventually of man. Satan knew he had a limited time to rule. His goal is to deceive mankind and depart them from God. He needs people to perform his will. His representatives operate to centralize power, government, religion, science and, generally forge all of mankind’s thoughts. Jesus called him “the ruler of the world”( John 14:30)
You should imagine a superior entity (who maybe took part into creation), somebody who was a depositary of much of the divine knowledge and has directed mankind for thousands of years. He is skilled, experienced, but a really a wicked, cunning person, someone knowing all the past and present history. It is somebody able to connect not just locally but globally all the human events. Imagine you have to make plans to govern a flock of sheep or similar for a season. It wouldn’t be difficult for you, provided you were an experienced, skilled shepherd.
Satan similarly has governed and is governing humankind. He was in a position to offer Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and their glory just for an act of worship to him. (Matthew 4:8) So he is governing humankind but not for our good. It is for himself. Of him, Jesus said:” That one was a murderer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because the truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of the lie.” John 8:44
A little after the flood, the first man that history remembers having operated in such a direction was Nimrod. Genesis, chapter 10 -the table of nations- states of him: “Cush became the father to Nimrod. He was the first to become a mighty one on the earth. He became a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah. That is why there is a saying: “Just like Nimrod, a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah.” The beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. From that land he went into Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah, and Resen, between Nineveh and Calah: This is the great city.” (Genesis 10:8-12) He began to build a huge tower.
About this event, the Bible reports: “Then they said to one another: “Come! Let us make bricks and bake them with fire.” So they used bricks instead of stone, and bitumen as mortar. They now said: “Come! Let us build a city for ourselves and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a celebrated name for ourselves so that we will not be scattered over the entire face of the earth”. (Genesis 11:3-4) This tower was so high to challenge the sky. All the existing people had to gather nearby the tower, living together in big cities.
Nimrod was a cruel, powerful man, “a mighty hunter in opposition to God”. He was able to use his tyranny to dominate all over the people of his time. He achieved to organize the first empire after the deluge. Josephus Flavius said he started to build the tower to deport people from God. He promised to fight with them in the case of another deluge. The tower meant the establishment of a gathering central place, a powerful image good for adoration, a spiritual collector for directing the most flattering hopes of Nimrod’s and contemporary mankind.
Making a God of himself
Nimrod was so influent that he himself was considered a God. Many historians identify Nimrod with the Babylonian god Marduk. Even when God confused man’s language to stop Nimrod’s program, he continued to live there and to influence the activity of the arising Babylonian empire.
“Then Jehovah went down to see the city and the tower that the sons of men had built. Jehovah then said: “Look! They are one people with one language, and this is what they have started to do. Now there is nothing that they may have in mind to do that will be impossible for them. Come! Let us go down there and confuse their language in order that they may not understand one another’s language.” So Jehovah scattered them from there over the entire face of the earth, and they gradually left off building the city. That is why it was named Babel, because there Jehovah confused the language of all the earth, and Jehovah scattered them from there over the entire face of the earth.” Genesis 11:5-8
In that period astronomy and astrology were having a great influence. Planets and celestial bodies were connected with deities. Babylon had than a great influence upon all nations around, like Egypt, Assyria, Persia, Greece, and Rome. Merodach became Bel, Baal, and then Jupiter. (Babel means Bel’s door). Assur was the sun god. The worship of the sun has been something common through all the history, starting from Babylon. Even Israel worshipped during all their history Baal and the sun until they were rejected and went into exile.
Many different religions
Satan worked hard to the accomplishment of all his plans over the centuries. Thanks to the many different religious ideas, he departed the majority from God. The sun worship has continued throughout history and is evident in Christianity too. Think for example to Isis keeping Horus on her knees. There is a clear connection with the child Jesus on the knees of his mother. Horus, the sun god, is often represented when killing a snake or a crocodile. This shows a clear connection with the messianic promise that God will send his Son to kill Satan (the original snake).
A standard model of thinking
Throughout all the history, all those expressing the will to be different and refusing to worship the sun have been persecuted. They were marked because they were different and not subdued to the centralized thought. Satan’s ability to create centralizing structures has always been great. Nations, empires, religions act to force people to think all in the same standardized way. A great deal of energy has been used in this direction. More and more nations became centralizing nuclei of thoughts. Propaganda has become pressing, school is mandatory and standard with programs that must be respected in all schools. Think for instance to the great emphasis given to the teaching of evolution, and now to gender education.
Science as a form of religion
Science is considered to be a powerful centralizing tool to spread uniform, standard information. It has received such a great consensus and power that many people blindly believe that its fundamentals have all been proved. So, it has become the mother of all religions. Mankind has to put faith in it. Science is the form of a religion able to rip off the name of the true God from all the human hearts and put the sun at the center of the universal worship.
Satan, thanks to science, was able to obscure even the idea of creation. God’s divinity is considered now like a nonsense concept. God is dead while the sun is at the center of all kind of worship. But how did they manage to put the sun at the center of the universe? Especially because in the eyes of the observer the sun appears to be small in comparison with the Earth. How could they give it such a standing central role, when it is clear that it moves, while the Earth is standing still?
Giving the earth a spherical shape
Goebbels, the minister of the Nazi propaganda, said once that, by repeating hundreds of times a lie, it becomes a truth. This is the hypnosis mechanism used for enhancing the sun worship. Things began early with Greeks philosophers theorizing the spherical shape of the Earth. It started just with a small change. They originally suggested the globe of the earth be at the center of the universe, with sun, moon, and planets orbiting around and over it. This was the first step.
It didn’t prove necessary nor possible to put immediately the sun in the middle. So, it has been a long process that has lasted for centuries. By this first step, they gave to the Earth a shape of their invention, something easy to imagine, and a very easy shape, the easiest to visualize. The Earth was now given a finite dimension, small in comparison with the universe and easy to scale back in a further historical moment.
That spherical shape was functional to the second historical step. It came this time to put the sun in the center of the universe. When it came to put such a small body in the center of the earthly cosmological space and make the thing believable, it was necessary to develop a new theory. It was a show of orbits moving around a gravitational point having an enormous attractive force but located very far. It was Newton to formulate the mathematical solution to the problem in 1666. He expressed the Gravity force as the one responsible for the orbiting of the celestial bodies around the sun. The formula is
With this formula, the force of gravity is proportional to the mass of the two bodies that interact and inversely proportional to the square of the distance. This formula requires the presence of an enormous body, the sun, that exerts its attraction abilities in the universe. It gives life only to spherical bodies that assume this shape due to gravity. This force is considered to be a central force always directed to the center of the sphere.
Connecting the gravity force that we experience every day, with the force that sticks together the entire universe, I have to admit, has been a brilliant idea. It seems thoroughly logic and fully acceptable because we all feel this force. We can imagine how it acts and can easily agree that this force since it is acting upon our bodies, can act also among celestial objects. You can paint it in your mind.
This force moreover allows the description of a universe that starting with a big bang, with unimaginable, gigantic dimensions. An infinitely extending universe is the place of events and probabilities. Only in such an infinitely big universe all the events necessary to the evolution processes can happen. The evolution theory is necessary to eliminate God. This is the third step. A universe of limited dimensions where the earth is in the center needs necessarily the presence of a God. Many intelligent people would understand it. So they invented a different theory, to stimulate the imagination in another direction.
Worship of the sun
These are the reasons why the earth had to be spherical. It is because it would be necessary later to move the sun into the earth’s pivotal place to act as a fulcrum and a substitute, around which all the planets rotate. The concept of a sphere developed into the symbol of the sun. All this philosophy is linked to the worship of this god.
Spiritual superstructures acting over the earth
Now that our exercise is getting finished, you will probably be able to draw your own conclusions. History is not only the setting for random and unexpected events. There is a hidden intelligence maneuvering behind the scenes. They are pulling the strings of events over the centuries and giving each of them their own atmosphere and impressing a general standardized meaning in the course of time. They can act in the flow of millennia according to their general plan and schedule. Their concept of time is more extended then ours, so they are able to keep waiting for the right moment for intervening.
But you shouldn’t forget that their time is over and that the true God is about to take his vengeance, upon all the wicked forces ruling contrary to his will. “Therefore the true Lord, Jehovah of armies, The Powerful One of Israel, declares:“Ah! I will rid myself of my adversaries, And I will take revenge on my enemies.” (Isaiah 1:24)
Even more. First, the matters relating to the earth have to be unveiled. Peter writes: “Yet Jehovah’s day will come as a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a hissing noise, but the elements being intensely hot will be dissolved, and earth and the works in it will be discovered.” (2Pet 3:10) So you have to be sure that truth will be soon manifest in all its triumphant glory. Bye, bye, my reader.
