Someone was making fun of Jehovah witnesses for arguing that the bible claimed the Earth floated in space thousands of years before science.https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Job+26%3A7&version=NIV
"He spreads out the northern skies over empty space;
he suspends the earth over nothing."
Seems like they were right, Job is said to be the oldest book in the bible, even according to atheists.
One of my favorite questions is "Why does the Earth not fall?". The answer given is usually that the Earth is always falling, towards the sun, and always missing. There is no up or down in the vacuum of space, the concept of falling is tied to gravity, and massive objects have gravitational pull.
Like throwing a rock into space and watching it never stop, galaxies are still moving on the same trajectory since they were first thrown. The laws of physics allows these massive rocks to collect and orbit in perfect order.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
