The notion that scientists prove the laws of physics empirically is an example of begging the initial principle. What principle? The idea the Bible predicted for the mockers (false teachers) of the last days - that all things remain the same (panta houtos diamenei - 2 Peter 3:3 - 6). The historical beginning premise of western empiricism is the notion that the properties of matter are fixed, not emerging. Seconds, grams and ergs are not fixed measuring units, if the beginning principle is false because scientists defined time, mass and energy with their premise. Scientists assume that atoms are immutable and dither with perpetual motion, and used this to define linear seconds. Using their operationally defined seconds, they calculate the length of meters, velocities, accelerations and contrive their laws of physics. If matter is changing relationally, (1) the measuring units would pertain to the initial assumption, not the reality of nature. (2) The symbolical, mathematical versions of empirical reality would change together. But, says the scientist, we repeat the measurement and they always stay the same! If matter is changing relationally, both sides of a balance scale would change equally even as local clocks shifted their frequencies in unison. If atoms change relationally with age, there are no physical constants.
How can we test the first principle of western science? We cannot use empirical units because in most cases we would be begging an answer from our initial assumption. However, we can, use a biblical principle to interpret the evidence visually. The Bible plainly states that the creation is enslaved to change. We can confirm this principle with sight. We can see the past with telescopes all the way back to the creation age in billions of ancient galaxies. Not a single distant galaxy clocks the frequencies of modern atoms. In general, the most-distant atomic clocks transmitted the most-minuscule frequencies - compared to modern atomic clocks. NASA sent calibrated clocks far from Earth on the Galileo, Ulysses and the Pioneer spacecraft. The received clock signals from the past also kept shifting to slower frequencies as the spaceships receded from Earth, compared to NASA’s hydrogen maser clocks of the moment. Evidently perpetual motion atoms do not exist.
Biblical physics is simple and non mathematical, since the Bible is simple and non mathematical. Biblical physics also has a fundamental premise, but it is diametrically opposite from the scientific presumption. Changing Earth Creationists accept that everything in creation changes (Greek phthora) in an orderly and together manner (Romans 8:19 - 22). CEC can also beg simple answers from that premise. However, the answers are not mathematical nor can they be built into a hierarchical version of science. We can see with telescopes in all parts of the spectrum how the galaxies formed. Billions of galaxies at many ranges intrinsically grew from tiny naked globs to great growth spirals as the properties of matter kept emerging. Evidently the space matter takes up, its inertial properties and its atomic frequencies all change together, relationally. Relational changes cannot be measured with empirical units. If matter is changing itself, the length of meters would shift along with the speed of the atomic clocks even as orbits and rotations also concurrently accelerated.
The evidence that supports a literal biblical creation is visible. The earliest galaxies were naked without starry appendages. At closer ranges we often observe tiny blue beads around the redder cores. At many ranges we observe how the stars accelerated out, spread out, rotated around more as billions of galaxies intrinsically grew into huge, local growth spirals. What is visible supports the biblical statements that God continually calls the stars to come out that He spreads out the plural heavens in unbroken continuity like a tent. Clearly and visibly the first principle of science, the idea the Bible predicted for the last days, is false. Try to beg your answers from nature itself, rather than from symbolical versions of reality.
The Hubble Ultra Deep Field is a tiny patch of dark sky that contains 10,000 ancient galaxies. Astronomers found 165 tadpole galaxies in this 9 square minute patch of sky. We also observe nearby tadpole galaxies with one prominent thin, star tail. This photo of 36 primordial tadpoles from the HUDF shows the beginning stages of spiral galaxies as blue globs of stars begin to accelerate out from the redder cores. Please notice that the tails are made of distinct clumps of stars, like beads on a necklace. What is visible is a violation of the scientific first principle. For this reason, scientists claim the galaxies are colliding. Examine the only history that is visible as it happened, galactic history, and you will see that galaxies intrinsically grew as the properties of matter kept on changing. How great will be the triumph of the Word of God over science, the system of reasoning and measuring that was built on a fundamental principle that is visibly false.
