Just out of interest:

'He spreads out the northern [skies] over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing.' Job 26:6 NIV

The above comment, along with all of those in the passage that contains it, is made to point out the great power of the creator, not to inform about the physical world. The Bible is never a science textbook, and should never be taken as such.

Edited by ochaye, : No reason given.

'Greetings ochaye,

And thanks for your input.'

Thank you, and thank you.

'Please note that I have edited to the OP to correct the date when Copernicus published his book. That particular transposition is an easy mistake because Martin Luther, a high profile critic of Copernicus, published his Bible in 1534 while Copernicus (the great nemesis of Renaissance Christianity) published in 1543. I'd hate to tell you how often I've gotten those numbers turned around.

Good thing I'm not an accountant. Yes? '

You're not alone. :)

Re: Back to Earth
Medieval Europe reputedly talked about the number of angels who can stand on a pin. Medieval America similarly has not a clue about anything.
