The Kepler telescope monitored 150,000 stars in the Sagittarius arm of our galaxy, looking for short term dimming events. If the dimming occurred regularly, astronomers claim planets are passing in front of the star. They found 130 transiting planets and 2,700 planet candidates. Kepler-62 is a star with five transiting planets, two in the “habitable zone.” (The above picture shows the logarithmic spacing between the planets in Keper-62 – combined with a diagram of the planet orbits around Kepler-62 from NASA Ames/JPL-Caltech. ) The orbital periods show an approximate straight line on a logarithmic graph.
Two hundred fifty years ago, Titius Bode discovered a mathematical sequence that predicted a planet between Mars and Jupiter, but none was knonwn. Then astronomers discovered Ceres and later thousands of broken planet pieces orbiting where Bode predicted a planet. The Bible and the ancients mentioned a planet shattering that occurred about 4,000 years ago. Perhaps it orbited between Mars and Jupiter before it was shattered. Solar system planets, the major moons of Uranus and Jupiter, and exoplanets, (for example around the star HD10180), have logarithmic spacing.
Bank balances (increasing from interest); multiplying bacteria; radioactive decay products (relative to clocks) and sequential planet distances are logarithmic. When something continually increments itself, it plots as a straight line on logarithm paper.
For a “force” to gradually pushes planets into logarithmic orbits, four things must occur. (1) The “force” must be fairly continuous and push outwards. (2) The outward push must increase with distance from the Sun. (3) The push would have to affect both Earth’s orbit and rotation since the ratio of days in a year has remained stable for at least 2,500 years. (The earliest calendars, such as Noah’s, had 360 days in a year and 12 – 30 day months. Around 3500 years ago, the ratios between days, months and years suddenly changed, perhaps from close encounters.) (4) The inertial properties of matter must also change, otherwise orbits would be unstable.
Gravity aberration explains the first three conditions. The fourth is confirmed in visible cosmic history. Gravity aberration results from planet motions and the effects of gravity that propagate at light speed. Gravity aberration causes the Sun to attract Earth’s dawn more than its sunset which steadily increases Earth’s spin rate, relative to yesterday’s spin. This slight imbalance also pulls Earth’s orbit so that it slowly spirals outward, not closing. Gravity aberration increases with distance (longer delay = greater angular offset) so the outer planets receive a larger outward push than the inner ones, which produces the logarithmic spacing between planets. Gravity aberration also affects large plants more than asteroids, since the torque is amplified by the planet’s radius.
How do we know gravity has an aberration? In 2002, Kopeikin and Fomalont compared the arrival times of radio signals from the quasar J0842+1835 as Jupiter passed near the signal path. They claim the speed of gravity is approximately light-speed. Simon Laplace showed that if gravity travels at light-speed, gravity aberration would shorten a planet’s period. Arthur Eddington wrote that if Jupiter and the Sun are attracting each other towards their previous positions, this would increase the angular momentum of both. Tom Van Flandern calculated that if gravity travels at light speed, the distance to the Sun should double in 1200 years. Edmund Halley noticed that ancient eclipse data does not match modern calculations, as if the Moon had gradually accelerated. Newton noted that this acceleration was relative to Earth’s diurnal rotation.
Can we detect gravity aberration locally? Sixty years ago Maurice Allais built a gravimeter (paraconical pendulum) for observing the effects of gravity from the Sun and Moon. His pendulum had long term precession changes as well as daily variations that depended on where the Sun and Moon were, relative to the pendulum. His experimental runs included two partial solar eclipses during which the pendulum radically changed its precession.
Gravity aberration explains why local planets (and those around distant stars) migrate into logarithmic spacings. It explains why the ancients, a few thousand years ago, described catastrophic close planet passages. (It explains why Mars was once warm and wet but is now cold and dry). The aberration of gravity torques Earth’s rotation rate even as the ratio between days and years stays about the same. This explains why, a few thousand years ago, people lived for geological ages, as the Bible explains in Job 14. Job mentioned that the sea (Hebrew west) dried during the few days of their lives. Indeed, the Mediterranean dried eight times leaving thick layers of plankton alternating with gypsum and salt. One of Job’s markers for the duration of his life was water wearing away rock. The Nile river, near Job’s home, was once a narrow, granite gorge more than two kilometers deep (deeper than the Grand Canyon) as it rushed down into a largely empty sea. Job mentioned how their faces changed (doubled) before they died. If you lived for geological ages, you would grow Neanderthal brows from vast age. However, your grandchildren (the young) would have modern skulls, as the fossils show. Gravity aberration explains how forests could grow in a single summer, ice ages could advance over a winter and thousands of feet of coral could grow during few years. The Sun used to shine in infrared back when a year was a geological age.
Objections: We measure orbits and rotations and they are clock-like. The universe is so vast that we can see its history back to the creation era in billions of galaxies at many ranges. We observe how the earliest galaxies were often naked, without starry appendages. Their light clocks pulsed at tiny fractions of the frequencies of modern atoms. At many ranges, in billions of examples, we observe how the atomic clocks accelerated along with the outward accelerating star streams as galaxies grew into huge, local, growth-spirals with logarithmic spaced star lanes. Evidently the atomic clocks, the space matter takes up and its inertial properties all change relationally, that is together. Three thousand five hundred years ago the Egyptians painted a red sun and tan sky, but today we see a white sun and a blue sky. All ancient stars were redder than our Sun as we observe with telescopes. Indeed, stars keep getting bluer throughout visible cosmic history.
What is gravity? Gravity is not a perpetual motion effect as in Newton and Einstein’s theories. As atoms change relationally, they release gravity as their light clocks also accelerate relationally.
How can we verify that clocks accelerate? NASA sent two spin-stabilized spaceships (Pioneer 10 and 11) out of the solar system in opposite directions in 1970. Their clock signals, transmitted hours ago, kept slowing (relative to NASA’s hydrogen maser clocks of the moment). The clocks changed speed at the Hubble ratio that astronomers use to estimate the distance to an ancient galaxy using their observed light-clock rates. Ancient matter clocked minuscule frequencies compared to modern atoms.
By faith we understand the the plural eons were prepared by God’s command out of things unseen. Hebrews 11:3. As gravity’s aberration continued to accelerate Earth’s days and years, eon years accelerated to their present ephemeral durations. Have you noticed that life speeds up as you age? Why do you disbelieve your memory of how slow things were in your youth? After all, the optical parallax to the Sun has continued to decrease even after radar established the canonical value of the AU. Carefully examine the creed of science, the notion that the properties of matter (including clocks) are not changing as matter ages. 2 Peter 3:3 – 6
