Vain Human Fake (Cosmology) Science

I haven’t mucked out my spam folder for a while and when I did so just now I found that a long-term irritant of mine, a certain Mr David Hine, had attempted to post another comment:

I have to admit that I’m not well up on the biblical references so I looked them up. Isaiah Chapter 40 Verse 22

He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

I don’t see any mention of the Hubble constant, nor indeed any statement that the stretching of the heavens follows a linear relation (Hubble’s Law).

As for Psalm 2. In the New International Version, Verse 1 reads:

Why do the nations conspire
    and the peoples plot in vain?

I have only just now realized that the second part of this verse refers to the construction of graphs. Personally, I never plot in vain. I normally use python.

  1. Is ‘vain’ a plotting program? Is it any good?

  2. Dark Energy Says:

    May be next time you can ask him if “Lord” is frequentist or Bayesian? Impressed by the significant digits in H_0 may be he can provide the error-budget too or probably there is no error because
    “God does not play dice”?
