Moving Six Directions At Once


anecdotal stories

The earth moves in at least SIX different ways, and yet we on earth are not dizzy. The movements are:

  1. The earth spins on its axis, like a top, at the speed of one-third mile per second or 1,000 miles per hour. If it were 100 miles per hour, the earth would alternately freeze and burn.
  2. It weaves slowly back and forth on its axis, tilting to an angle of 23 degrees, then swinging slowly back, twice a year. This gives us our seasons.
  3. The earth with the moon is swinging around the sun, once a year at the rate of 18½ miles per second. And it never varies 1/10,000th of a second on this annual trip.
  4. The sun, with all its planets, is on a trip, rushing northward at 12 miles per second.
  5. The nearby stars, with our planetary system, are revolving at 180 miles per second around the Milky Way’s center.
  6. The Milky Way, our galaxy, with all its millions of stars, is on a tremendous journey, plunging through space at terrific speed. Who knows where?

God guides and controls them all.

Therefore I will shake the heavens, And the earth will move out of her place, In the wrath of the LORD of hosts And in the day of His fierce anger. – Isaiah 13:13
