NASA vs Biblical Scripture: Bible Verses that prove that the earth is not a round spinning ball

A brief History of NASA and their revelations

NASA  (National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA))  is an independent U.S. government agency that was created in 1958 to research and develop vehicles and activities for exploring space, both inside and outside Earths atmosphere.  The launch of Sputnik I by the Soviet Union on October 4, 1957, prompted the United States to create its own satellite, which was achieved on February 1, 1958, when the Sharpen fired off the successful Explorer 1. Americans were surprised by the Sputnik launch and were worried that the Soviets could send missiles with nuclear weapons to America. The United States was proud of being at the forefront of technology, and this made it feel embarrassed. So, it started to build a response, which started the U.S.-Soviet space race.

President Eisenhower sent a draft law to Congress on April 2, 1958, that called for a civilian agency to be created to oversee the US space program. NASA was created around the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). Congress created NACA in 1915. By the early years of President John F. Kennedy’s administration, NASA was well underway. Kennedy proposed that the United States put a man on the Moon by the end of the 1960s. With that goal in mind, the Apollo program was designed, and in 1969, NASA claimed that Neil Armstrong was the first person to walk on the Moon. It was followed by unmanned programs, such as Viking, Mariner, Voyager, and Galileo, explored other bodies of the solar system. Later, NASA fully embraced the round earth initiative, declaring to the world that the earth was a round ball that spun. 

According to NASA Archives (90 years of their changing views of the world)

NASA Revelation and evidence of a round earth

There has been indirect evidence for a long time that the Earth is round, but photographic proof was not available until well into the 20th century. Observers thought the Earth was spherical as it cast a shadow on the Moon during lunar eclipses, while the ancient Greeks believed the Earth was round. With the invention of aeroplanes, photographers could reach heights from which they could take pictures of the Earths curve. The Earth could be seen as a full disk, then as a smaller and smaller blue OASIS, if we could send back photographs from space. Through these images, we gained a greater understanding of Earths place in the universe, which in turn gives us a greater understanding of our place in the universe.

According to NASA, The National Geographic Magazine reported in the May 1931 issue that a photograph taken from an aeroplane east of the Andes mountain range in South America proved that the Earth was curved. The image was taken on December 30, 1930, by Capt. Albert W. Stevens, an officer in the U.S. Army Air Corps and an aerial photographer, while flying at an altitude of 21,000 feet (6.4 km) over Villa Mercedes, Argentina. Even though the Andes Mountains are taller than the plane’s altitude, they are still below the horizon, which is marked by the white horizontal line in the picture. NASA further claimed that the Earths’ curvature explains this phenomenon, as described in the diagram accompanying the photograph. NASA noted that the Earth’s curvature is also visible laterally in the photograph, although the effect is subtle given that the image covers only 1/360 of the Earth’s circumference.

According to NASA, in a joint program between the U.S. Army Air Corps and the National Geographic Society, Captain Orvil A. Anderson and Captain Stevens were the first people to take a photograph from a high-altitude balloon, proving that the Earth was curved. The pair took off from the Stratobowl near Rapid City, South Dakota, aboard the helium-filled Explorer II balloon on November 11, 1935, and ascended to a then world record altitude of 72,395 feet (ca. 22 km). NASA explained that there is a potential for long-range reconnaissance from high-altitude balloons, and the photograph showed the troposphere-stratosphere boundary and the actual curvature of the Earth.

In October 1946, scientists at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico put a camera on top of a captured German V-2 ballistic missile. Ten years later, in October 1956, scientists launched this missile and took the first pictures of Earth from space. The 35 mm motion picture camera snapped a frame every one and a half seconds when the rocket flew to an altitude of about 65 miles (ca. 105 km), just above the generally recognized border of outer space. Several minutes later, the missile returned to Earth and struck the ground at more than 340 mph (ca. 547 km/h), but the film survived and gave us our first glimpse of Earth from space. The Explorer 6 satellite, launched on Aug. 14, 1959, captured the first photograph of Earth from orbit, but the image lacked detail. The first television images of the round Earth were returned by the TIROS-1 weather satellite on April 1, 1960.

NASA claimed that the image quality was poor, but the first photograph showing the Earth as a full-disk was taken by the Soviet Molniya 1-3 communications satellite on May 30, 1966. The ATS-1 advanced technology satellite, launched on Dec. 11, 1966, transmitted the first photograph of Earth from geostationary orbit 22,300 miles (ca. 35,888 km) above Ecuador. The Department of Defense Gravity Experiment (DODGE) satellite returned the first color picture of the whole Earth in August 1967.

Before the crewed Apollo missions that followed, NASA claimed that the primary purpose of the early robotic spacecraft was to prepare for the lunar terrain from the surface. The first of five Lunar Orbiter spacecraft that were designed to map the surface of the Moon from orbit took the first picture of the Earth from lunar distances on August 23, 1966. The original frame was reconstructed in 2008 as part of the Lunar Orbiter image recovery project. The first photograph of the Earth from the lunar surface was taken by the Surveyor 3 robotic lander on April 30, 1967.

Many beautiful and memorable images from humanities first trip to another world were taken by the Apollo missions of the late 1960s and early 1970s, according to NASA. Among the photographs are several that show the Earth taken by the astronauts, which can make our planet appear small and fragile against the blackness and vastness of space. The Earthrise photos are probably the most famous. They were taken during Apollo 8, the first mission to orbit the Moon with people on board. The image of Earth as a blue ball floating over the gray lunar landscape inspired the ecology movement at the time. Apollo 11 was the first human mission to land on the Moon. It returned many famous pictures of Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin on the surface and the first picture of the Earth taken by an astronaut on the Moon. According to NASA, the astronauts of the final Apollo lunar landing mission, Apollo 17, took the famous Blue Marble image of the Earth from 72,000 miles (115,872.77 km) away on their way to the Moon.

On July 19, 2013, NASA announced that the Cassini spacecraft had taken a series of pictures of Saturn as the Sun was being covered by the planet. The pictures were taken from a distance of about 750,000 miles (1,207,008 km)

In the event dubbed The Day the Earth Smiled, people on Earth were notified in advance that Cassini would be taking their picture, and were encouraged to smile at its camera. Besides Earth and the Moon, Venus, Mars, and seven of Saturn’s satellites are visible in the photograph.

How were the planets given their names

Moreover, it is important to note that the International Astronomical Union (IAU), the group that is responsible for giving names to celestial bodies, changed the name of the eight planets to the names of ancient Roman gods.  The five planets that the Romans claimed to have seen at night were named after their gods and goddesses. According to the Roman school of thought, Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, was named in honor of their deity Jupiter, the king of the Roman gods.

The Romans named Mars after their god of war because they believed it to have a reddish color. Mercury, which the Romans thought took 88 days to go around the Sun, is named after the fast-moving messenger of the gods. Saturn, who the Romans thought was the second-largest planet in the solar system, is named for the god of agriculture. The Romans named Venus because she was their goddess of love and beauty.  

Astronomers at that time thought that there were only seven planets. Later, in the early 1600s, they claimed that there were two more, Uranus and Neptune, with a microscope.  Johann Bode, a German astronomer, suggested the name Uranus, which is a Latinized version of the Greek god of the sky, Ouranos. However, the name Uranus didn’t become accepted until the mid-1800s.  Neptune got its name after the Roman god of the sea and was named by German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle.

History of Biblical Scripture

The Bible is a collection of divine texts of stories, prophecies, and instructions from the Most High God, given to his prophets who graced the earth thousands of years ago. It is a collection of texts of different types, originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Koine Greek. These texts were meant to be disseminated to future generations, to serve as a proof of God’s strong relationship with us. 

Different religious communities put together official collections of religious texts. The earliest version of the first five books of the Bible is called the Torah in Hebrew and the Pentateuch in Greek. The second and third collection contain narrative histories and prophecies, as well as proverbs and psalms. The Tanakh is another name for the Hebrew Bible. The Hebrew Bible is made up of the first letters of the three parts of the Hebrew scriptures: the Torah, the Nevis, and the Ketuvim. The Masoretic Text is a medieval version of the Tanakh, which is considered the authoritative text of the Hebrew Bible by modern Rabbinic Judaism. The Septuagint is a Koine Greek translation of the Tanakh that was written in the third and second centuries BCE. It is very similar to the Hebrew Bible.

The Modern-day Bible comprises 66 separate books. The Old Testament is a record of God’s speaking and working in history from when he created the earth and our first parents, Adam and Eve, until about 450 BC. Thirty-nine books comprise the Old Testament, which is about three-quarters of the Bible. During the period between the old and the new testaments, the people waited for the coming of the Messiah. The New Testament begins with the life, death, burial, resurrection, and return to heaven of Messiah in the four Gospels. It then goes on to instruct Christians and churches about how to think and live in light of the Messiah.

In conclusion, the Bible is a collection of books that are all one book and show a divine unity and consistency. The point I am trying to make is that there are many bible scriptures that refute NASA’s claim that we live in a spinning ball. I’ve made a list of important biblical verses that show that the world is not a spinning blue ball, as NASA says. These texts actually imply that we may, in fact, be living under an enclosed solid structure.

1. In the Beginning

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Genesis 1:6-7 KJV


The main point to take away from this is the word “Firmament,” which was created in the midst of the waters. The firmament was designed to divide the waters below from the above. According to Wikipedia, the firmament is the vast solid dome created by God during his creation of the world to divide the primal sea into upper and lower portions so that the dry land could appear. This Bible verse shows that the Most High God made a solid vault inside the waters to create dry land and water for humans to live together.

2. The Book of Genesis

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Genesis 1:14 (KJV)


During creation, the Most High God made the lights fixed to the firmament so that they could tell the difference between night and day. This implies that the sun was intended to describe the daytime, while the moon described the night. If you look carefully at this verse, it says that the sun and the moon were created only to distinguish between day and night.

3. Still on the Book of Genesis

 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

Genesis 1:16 (KJV)


The sun and moon are the two great lights that were made in the firmament. The reason we have a longer day time than night is because the Most High made the sun to rule over the moon during creation. How can NASA justify their claim that a man has landed on the moon, when this scripture describes the moon as a lesser light that rules over the night?

4. The Book of Job

18 Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?

Job 37:18 (KJV)


That particular verse was the testament of Elihu, one of Job’s friends who came to comfort him during the time of his distress. According to that text, elihu said that the firmament in the sky was like a molten glass structure. The past believers of the Most High God were aware of what was in the firmament.

The firmament made of molten glass

5. The Book of Psalms

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

Psalm 19:1 (KJV)


This Bible verse from Genesis says that the glory of the Most High God can be seen in the firmament he made in the heavens.

Art work of the firmament

6. Also, from the book of Psalms

The sun’s rising is from one end of the heavens,
And its circuit to the other end of them;
And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

Psalm 19:6 (AMP)


First, let us focus on the word ‘circuit’ and determine its true meaning. According to Wikipedia,  a circuit is a roughly circular line, route, or movement that starts and finishes at the same place. From this definition, we can see that the Bible says that the sun moves in a circle, which means that the sun rotates around the firmament from one end to the other and still sets where it began.

This verse also indicates that the sun moves from one end of the firmament to the other to switch positions with the moon. For example, let’s consider Europe and America. The sun begins to leave Europe during the evening hours and slowly moves to America to give light to form daytime. Then, the moon will switch places with the sun and settle in Europe, where the dark night skies will become evident. This is why the time in Europe is different from that of America. Where there is night in Europe, there is day in America. This indicates that it is not the earth that is spinning, but the sun and the moon that are moving in the firmament to circle the earth and give day and night to the whole world.

7. The Book of Proverbs

When He prepared the heavens, I [Wisdom] was there; when He drew a circle upon the face of the deep and stretched out the firmament over it,

Proverb 8:27 (AMPC)


According to this passage, the Most High God designed the earths surface to look like a circle and then put a solid firmament above it. 

He drew a circle upon the face of the deep
A circle face of the deep
Even the UN logo subliminally shows you the truth
He stretched out the firmament over it

8. The Book of Job

when I determined its boundaries
and put its bars and doors in place,
when I declared, “You may come this far, but no farther;
your proud waves stop here”?

Job 38:10-11 (CSB)


This passage explains that when the Most High God created the earth, he put boundaries around it in the form of a wall. Because various parts of the world have been restricted by world powers, it may be difficult for us to establish where these boundaries are located. I have one guess. It is the only continent without a native human population, the only place on Earth where war has never happened, and where the environment is protected. Scientific research remains the top priority in this place. It is, undoubtedly, Antarctica. 

Antarctica Ice Wall
The Continent Antarctica

Antarctica is a land in which the Antarctic Treaty parties call a natural reserve, devoted to peace and science. To me, it is the farthest reaches of the earth, as designed by the Most High God.  The Antarctic Treaty entered into force on June 23, 1961, after being ratified by the 12 countries currently active in Antarctic science. The Treaty covers the Southern Hemisphere below 60°S latitude.  The treaty is still in force, and Its goals are simple yet complicated in international relations. Forty-six countries, representing around 80% of the world’s population, have acceded to it. This implies that no one is allowed to go there without permission.

If you were able to take a trip to Antarctica, you would discover that there is a huge ice wall that surrounds the earth. The ice wall is the boundary made by the Most High God. If you go above it, you will find the lower part of the firmament. The world powers don’t want you to go to Antarctica because they don’t want you to find out the truth.

9. The Book of Proverb

When He set for the sea, its boundary
So that the waters would not transgress [the boundaries set by] His command,
When He marked out the foundations of the earth

Proverbs 8:29 (AMP)


Again, you can find proof everywhere in the world, especially in the forbidden Antarctica continent. Until this very day, the waters near the ice walls cannot exceed the temperature threshold because that was an attribute of the Most High God’s design. 

10. The Book of Chronicles

Fear before Him, all the earth! The world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.

1 chronicles 16:30 (KJV)


This bible verse thoroughly disproves NASA’s round earth theory. The passage describes how the Most High God created the earth to be stable and not to be moved or spinning.

11. The Book of Isaiah

It is he that sitteth upon the circuit of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in

Isaiah 40:22 (KJV)


This Bible verse says that the home and throne of the Most High God are above the firmament, and that we are like miniature grasshoppers in his sight.

12. Still, on the Book of Isaiah

Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become tired or grow weary;
There is no searching of His understanding.

Isaiah 40:28 (AMP)


Again, another Bible verse mentions that there is an end to the earth. It is not a coincidence that it is mentioned in many biblical verses.

13. The Book of Psalms

He established the earth on its foundations,
So that it will not be moved forever and ever.

Psalm 104:5 (AMP)


Here is another passage that says that the earth cannot be moved according to the orders of the Most High God who made it.

14. The Book of Matthew

This is the one who was mentioned by the prophet Isaiah when he said,

“The voice of one shouting in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the road for the Lord,
Make His highways straight (level, direct)!’”

Matthew 3:3 (AMP)


Many verses in the Holy Scripture suggest that the path on Earth is straight and not curved, as declared by NASA.

15. The Book of Peter

For they willingly forget [the fact] that the heavens existed long ago by the word of God, and the earth was formed out of water and by water,

2 Peter 3:5 (AMP)


Apostle Peter made a good point in explaining how the earth was formed out of water without any mention of a spinning blue ball that is in space.


What you just read are 15 important bible verses that show that NASA’s claim is wrong. Let me remind you that there are over 200 Bible scriptures that describe the earth as an immovable land beneath a solid firmament, but I decided to pick the most significant ones.   

From what I’ve observed, it’s clear that some people want to hide the creator from his creations in the name of science. These are the same people who told you that humans evolved from apes, when it’s clear that today’s apes cannot become humans. 

There is a malicious attempt to hide the works of the Most High God from the world. Isn’t it strange that all the planets said to be close to Earth, such as Venus, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, are all named after ancient Roman pagan gods? To conclude my article, from all indications, NASA does not appear to agree with the Bible. Which do you consider to be more reliable, NASA’s findings or biblical scriptures? It is up to you to believe in whichever you prefer. As always, it’s my opinion backed by facts.
