Einstein searched for a grand unified theory during the latter years of his life. He famously argued that God did not play dice and never accepted quantum uncertainties. Quantum physics and macro physics use different concepts and mathematics. In relativity, the Earth warps the vacuum of space-time. Like an invisible, distorted mirror, this reflects back - changing how matter moves and clocks tick in Earth's vicinity. Clocks and the arrow of time run at varying rates forward. However, quantum events can seemingly change the past. Local 'particles' can act non locally and the arrow of time can run jerkily in both directions. Events running into the 'past' masquerade as antiparticles. Those running into the 'future' masquerade as particles. The masquerade cannot be unmasked since 'particles' have dual properties that instantly change depending on how the observer observes. The quantum and relativity remain at odds.
Biblical physics is consistent at all scales from the vast universe to the minuscule. Biblical physics is based on the Word of God, not the elementary assumption from a pagan Greek. (Aristotle insisted that we assume that the properties of matter are fixed.) However, biblically, matter was actualized, received its form, when God created light. Therefore, matter is an active relation with light, not static substance. In a relation, no element of the relation is independent. Therefore, biblical physics is confirmed in quantum events, not as weirdness, but as simple evidence for the interconnected, relational nature of matter and light.
Biblical physics also explains the history of the universe simply without mathematics. The Bible states that the creation is in bondage to phthora - fundamental change. Paul illustrated what this means with two Greek together-verbs - suggesting relational change. We can see the past with light and compare the properties of matter throughout the history of the universe. Not a single distant galaxy shines with the light of perpetual motion atoms. Yet scientific empiricism uses atomic perpetual motion to define its measuring units and construct its mathematics. The entire empirical structure is carefully adjusted locally to fit their conserved atomic properties. However, neither their conservation nor their laws of physics visibly work in the galactic universe. Why not? We observe in billions of galaxies (at many ranges) how the properties of matter always change - the orbits and the atomic clocks both accelerating together. Ancient galaxies were naked and packed with minuscule stars. Their atoms clocked at minuscule ratios of the frequencies of modern atoms. At closer distances (eras) we observe little beads packed with stars in chains around primordial galaxies. At many ranges we observe how galaxies grew, the stars-globs accelerating out in lanes, as billions of galaxies grew into huge, dusty, growth-spirals. What is visible contradicts every operational definition, every law and every constant of both quantum and macro physics. It is for this very reason that scientists construct a mathematical universe that is 99% invisible. Their universe is filled with invisible matter and absurd vacuous processes to force the whole universe to fit their laws of physics. No invisible matter, vacuous forces or vacuum space-time are needed in biblical physics. The principles of biblical physics work everywhere at all scales. (1) Matter is relational - not unchanging substance. (2) The properties of all matter are always observed to change relationally throughout cosmic history. (One cannot measure relational changes since they affect the definitions, measuring units, instruments and mathematics. Yet relational changes are visible when we compare the properties of matter in billions of galaxies throughout cosmic history.) Biblical physics is simple and unified from the scale of atoms to the galactic universe. It also fits the words of the Bible that repeatedly describe how the heavens spread out in unbroken continuity. Look with sight not assumptions!

This cluster of primordial galaxies is from NASA's Hubble Ultra Deep Field. Please notice the stage galaxies with tails - like tadpoles.
Synthetic can mean: not genuine or natural; not of natural origins; contrived artificially. Is science synthetic? Science's epistemic history may help us determine if it is synthetic. The historical root assumption in science came from Aristotle, a pagan philosopher. He argued that we must assume that the properties of matter are fixed and build all knowledge on changelessness, even though none is observed. It is the nature of synthetic ideas that the universe remains unchanged when one denies the idea. For example, if we deny the existence of luminiferous aether - nothing in the universe changes. Aether was merely a speculated substance that filled all space to force scientific theories on an indifferent universe. If the denial of an idea changes nothing in nature, then the idea is certainly synthetic and not part of nature.
Would our universe look different if matter were always changing its properties relationally? Relational change is where the properties change in parallel, simultaneously. Absolutely nothing in nature would be affected if Aristotle's idea is false. In fact, we could get rid of 100% of the aether-like substances that artificially prop up the laws of physics. To preserve their concept of fixed length seconds, scientists claim that the observed acceleration of all atomic clocks in billions of galaxies at many ranges is unreal. They speculate that a vacuous process adjusts the frequencies of all ancient atomic clocks as the light passed through the void. To force their laws on billions of galaxies, they claim that each galaxy is surrounded by a cloud of invisible matter that has much more 'mass' than the visible galaxy. According to scientists, the vacuum of space is energetic, accelerating galaxies to close to the speed of light. Where did it get this energy? Why a tiny bit of vacuum exploded, creating the whole universe out of nothing and filling it with a vacuous, undetectable substance called space-time. Even here on earth, by admitting that the properties of matter are emerging, we could get rid of undetectable subduction. The continents only fit together on a tiny earth and the ocean floors are much younger than the continents. A global expansion seam in every ocean keeps on visibly forming new earth crust every year. The soft, layered sediments in the subduction zones clearly show that subduction is a scientific myth. All these scientific speculations are completely unnecessary if one denies the basic scientific creed - that the properties of matter are fixed, that matter does not change relationally with age.
The visible universe fits the law of biblical physics - that the creation is in bondage to phthora - change fundamentally. We confirm biblical physics with light, not mathematical symbols. Ephesians 5:13 "But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light." The verb exposed (elegchomena) means to refute, to expose error. Light exposes error and makes evident (phanero) the truth because all things (panta) are light (phôs estin). Notice that Paul does not say we see things because of light. All things are light. All substance is inseparably associated with light because matter is a relationship with light.
The only history that one can observe is cosmic history. We confirm biblical physics with visible cosmic history. The earliest visible galaxies were naked, densely packed with close-together, tiny stars. At closer ranges, we see little globs of stars coming out in equal spacing, like beads on a necklace. At many ranges we observe that these globs rotated out, accelerated out, taking up more volume as billions of galaxies grew into huge growth spirals. Clocks, atomic and orbital, in billions of galaxies (at many ranges) accelerate together throughout cosmic history. What is visible is not artificial or synthetic. Galaxies could not grow into growth spirals unless the properties of matter are emerging. Genesis chapter One states that God places the Sun, Moon and stars in the shamayim raqiya, the spreading out heavens. We can see the simple evidence for biblical physics and biblical cosmic history in the way billions of galaxies grew from tiny naked object to huge dusty growth spirals. The scientific universe is almost totally invisible and filled with aether like substances to force their assumption (and the laws that depend on that assumption) on an indifferent universe.
Therefore, science is itself synthetic and the Bible will certainly vanquish man's wisdom, just as it predicts.

This picture of a Doppler modified wave is from the Wikipedia commons.
Everyone notices that the sound of a truck's engine changes as it passes. This is known as Doppler - the local change in the frequency of a signal due to relative motion. The sound can change due to motion or a different frequency of the source - as when the truck changes gears.
Doppler navigation involves beating the received carrier signal against a reference signal and counting the number of difference-cycles over some short interval. The cycle count is then converted into the earthward component of the relative velocity of the spacecraft / earth-antenna system. In 1998, John D. Anderson from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory reported on an unexpected Doppler shifting of the radio signals of the two Pioneer craft as they exited the solar system in opposite directions. The Pioneers were particular suited to this type of study because the entire spaceship is a gyro that is only periodically precessed by firing thruster jets. Anderson suggested that the Doppler shift shows the spacecraft were slowing more than predicted by the laws of physics. He calculated that in addition to the normal slowing from 'gravity' the birds were mysteriously slowing at 8.74 ± 1.33 x 10-10 meters / seconds 2 toward the Sun.
Biblical physics can suggest answers that cannot be countenanced scientifically. This is because it is based on a different principle than Western science. The basic principle in biblical physics is that the creation is in bondage to change - Greek phthora. Biblical physics is supported by simple, non mathematical evidence. We can compare the properties of ancient matter with local matter because we can see the past in the distant sky. The farther the galaxy (the more we see it as it was eons ago) the more its light shines at minuscule ratios of the light frequencies of similar (albeit modern) atoms. No distant galaxy shines with the light of perpetual motion atoms. Scientists cannot countenance the notion that matter is always changing its properties because their entire mathematical structure was built on a single assumption invented by a pagan Greek. Aristotle insisted (1) that we must assume that the properties of matter are fixed (2) and build all knowledge on changelessness, even though none is observed. Over the last seven centuries, Western scientists contrived their definitions of matter and time, their measuring units and their mathematics on Aristotle's historical, elementary assumption that the properties of matter are not emerging. The scientific system is consistent locally because every definition and every measurement is based on the same assumption - that the properties of matter are not changing relationally. However, the scientific universe is 99% invisible, crammed full of invisible matter and never-detected vacuous processes. All the magical things are woven out of invisible cloth to counteract the simple, visible evidence that matter is always changing its properties throughout the visible history of the universe.
Let's apply the principle of Biblical physics to the Pioneer Anomaly. The only way we can compare the rate of past seconds with modern seconds is to compare distant clocks with modern, local clocks. Since countless atoms in countless galaxies at many ranges always blue shift their clock rates throughout cosmic history, why shouldn't the atoms in the Pioneer crystals and the Deep Space Network also blue shift? The Pioneer radio signals took several hours to cross space and arrive at Earth. The Doppler comparison is a sum of the velocity related changes plus the natural and inherent changes in all atoms as they age. The distant Pioneer clocks are doing exactly what all clocks continually and visibly do, they are speeding up. However, we see them as slower (depending on how long the radio signals were in transit) because we are comparing the rate of past clocks with modern (faster) ones.
How can you be sure the Pioneer anomaly is not due to the expanding vacuum of space-time or some other mathematical explanation? We see a biblical cosmic history. We observe at many ranges how the galaxies grew. Ancient galaxies were tiny and naked. We follow how little globs of stars accelerated outward as billions of galaxies, at many ranges, grew into huge growth spirals. Both the atomic clocks and the orbital (inertial) clocks change concurrently as countless galaxies grew. This is simple, visible evidence against the dogma of all scientists, that the properties of matter are not emerging. We can see that the space matter takes up, its atomic frequencies and its inertial properties all change together (relationally) as galaxies violated every scientific law by growing into huge growth spirals.
Biblical physics not a theory. It is simply the statements in the Bible that we confirm with sight, not mathematical symbols. Every atom in the whole universe is observed to change throughout cosmic history and the Pioneers are just a local confirmation of this natural, visible, universal effect. Think about it.

NASA launched Pioneer 10 and 11 in 1972 and 1973 to fly past Jupiter and Saturn. After completing their primary missions, the spacecraft exited the solar system in diametrically opposite directions. For more than 20 years, NASA's Deep Space Network periodically recorded radio signals from the distant birds. Over the years the radio frequencies kept on decreasing from their expected values, as compared to NASA's clocks. In the last few years, numerous scientists suggested causes for the anomaly. Was it a tracking error, dark matter or an error in the laws of physics? Most attempts to solve the problem assumed that the frequency differences were due to an actual acceleration in the direction of the Sun. However, the decrease in received radio frequencies correlated with distance, not velocity. The longer the radio signals were in transit (up to almost a day) the more the frequencies were lower than predicted by the laws of physics (as compared to master clocks on earth). Scientists observed similar effects in other distant spacecraft (e.g., Galileo and Ulysses). The above graphic of the Pioneers is provided courtesy of NASA.
Biblical physics is easy to understand since it has no mathematical laws or operationally defined measuring units (like seconds). The only law in biblical physics is that the creation is in bondage to phthora. Greek philosophers used 'phthora' for matter changing its properties as it ages. The entire structure of modern empiricism was constructed on Aristotle's idea that the properties of matter are fixed, not emerging. The Apostle Peter predicted that in the last days false teachers will come saying "panta outos diamenei - all things remain the same in being." All modern scientists assume that matter is not changing relationally as it ages.
We can directly observe the past in the distant heavens and compare it to the present. In general, the dimmer and more distant a galaxy, the more the observed atomic frequencies are minuscule ratios of those from modern (local) atoms. Yet scientific empiricism depends on the notion that atoms do not change relationally, that ancient atoms were identical in nature to modern atoms. When atoms change relationally, we could not detect it with operationally defined measuring units that are predicated on the notion of atomic perpetual motion.
Biblical physics can explain the Pioneer Anomaly without mathematical laws. The signals from the Pioneer spacecraft came from the past. The longer the radio signals were in transit, the more the signals from the past were slower than those from local, modern clocks. The Pioneers are doing what all atoms in the universe do, speeding up their clock signals as matter ages. Biblical physics is the physics of nature, since every atom in the universe is following its law - changing relationally. The most powerful evidence for biblical physics is the visible history of how the galaxies formed. The earliest galaxies were naked and packed with stars. At many ranges we observe how those stars accelerated out and spread out as billions of galaxies grew into huge, local growth spirals. What we see could only happen if the properties of matter are always changing relationally. Not a single constant is visible anywhere in the whole universe. The scientific universe is symbolical, mathematical and almost 99% invisible, populated with invisible matter and various vacuous processes. All the invisible things in the scientific universe were woven out of invisible cloth to protect the historical first principle of science - that matter does not change as it ages.
The words of the Bible will certainly vanquish science, the system that was historically built on an elementary assumption from a pagan philosopher. Aristotle insisted that we must build all knowledge on changelessness, even though none is observed. Think about it.

This is HUDF galaxy 4438 a faint (-21.17 magnitude) primordial spiral galaxy. It is just one of ten thousand extremely faint galaxies in NASA's Hubble Ultra Deep Field photo. The light from this ancient galaxy shines at 50% of the light frequencies of modern atoms. The galaxy has two spiral arms that have only rotated out about half a turn. (The star globs in the nearer arm are bluish because they shine at relatively higher frequencies than the core). The left arm is made of a string of distinct, blue globs. The far arm is somewhat obscured but still has bluish star globs.
A first principle is a foundational assumption for a natural science. First principles cannot be proved. However, they can be disproved by the preponderance of simple, non structured, non mathematical evidence. In order to not assume the consequent (circular reasoning), a test of a first principle must not rely on the scientific structure. This is because a first principles is the historical, elementary foundation for the entire scientific structure.
Modern science first began when the pagan Greek philosophers debated first principles (about 2600 years ago). Imagine that a philosopher proposed a planetary theory. If the properties of matter are emerging, planet orbits (along with everything else) would gradually change. In that case, they could not understand long ago orbits or predict ones in the distant future. The Greeks had several first principles, each trying to solve how or if matter changes. Students during the apostolic age could choose between contradictory versions of science, since each fundamental assumption resulted in a different science. The historical basis for Western science was Aristotle's elementary idea. He wrote that we must ASSUME that the properties of matter are fixed and build all knowledge on changelessness, even though none is observed. Aristotle's idea did not achieve the status of authoritative dogma during the classical age. Fifteen hundred years later, Friar Aquinas convinced the popes to authorize Aristotle's metaphysics (his elementary assumption) in European universities. Over the next seven hundred years, Westerners invented definitions of matter and time, measuring units, mathematical constants, laws of physics and earth-histories - all because they presumed that the properties of matter are not emerging.
The simplest way to test the scientific assumption is with visible evidence. We can see the past and directly compare the properties of ancient and modern matter. All matter (from different eons / ranges) shines with light frequencies unlike those from local, modern atoms. Indeed, the youngest matter (the farthest away) shines at tiny fractions of the frequencies of modern atoms. This suggests that atoms change relationally. (Relational changes are where the properties of each bit of matter change in parallel). No perpetual motion atoms are visible in the whole universe. Yet scientists use their concept of immutable atoms to define their clock-time ideas and their measuring units for distance, velocities, mass, energy, gravity and thousands of other units. (Immutable means: not subject to variation in form, quality or nature).
Galactic history is powerful evidence against the scientific presupposition. Primordial galaxies were naked (no spiral arms) yet we often see them in equally spaced chains, like pearls on a necklace. At closer ranges, we see discrete, equally-spaced star clumps surrounding many ancient cores. In closer galaxies, we observe that the star clumps have spread out and made more revolutions to form continuous spiral arms of dust and stars. (Take a moment to study galaxy HUDF 4438 at the beginning of this article) By comparing innumerable spiral galaxies at many ranges, we see that the stars came out and spread out - growing into huge, local, dusty, growth-spirals. Galaxies cannot grow unless the properties of matter always change. What we see in the distant universe violates scientific definitions, measuring units, mathematics and theories because it denies their fundamental assumption.
Biblical physics is not based on an elementary idea from a pagan Greek. It is based on elementary statements in the Bible. The first principle of biblical physics cannot be used as the basis for a great and proud science. Why not? Not a single constant, not a single bit of matter is observed to follow the scientific assumptions about changelessness (atomic perpetual motion). The Bible repeatedly (in Hebrew) states that the heavens spread out in unbroken continuity, that the stars continually come out. Indeed, in the creation account God incompletely places the Sun, Moon and stars in the raqiya, the spreading out place. What the Bible states is visible - the visible history of the universe.
Why can't scientists believe the visible history of the universe? They have a historical first principle that is the foundation for their entire structured way of thinking, measuring and mathematicating. They do not know how to think any other way. This is doubtless why the scientific universe is 99% invisible. All of their stories about a vacuum explosion and vacuous invisible processes were contrived with their dogma that the properties of matter are not emerging. Yet the universe fits the simplicity of biblical physics and biblical cosmic history.
The Apostle Paul warned that the stoicheion (first principles) of philosophy can hold us captive. If everything you think you know about earth-history depends on one elementary assumption, and that assumption is visibly false in billions of galaxies, then you are a captive of an elementary assumption. The words of the Bible can set you free from this visibly false assumption!
