This issue is late for several reasons among which health, work, environment, finances, computer break-downs, and church affairs. The production of the Biblical Astronomer is a one-horse show and the work involved to produce quality articles is immense. I would like to cover topics such as extraterrestrial life, whether or not NASA went to the moon, the constellations in the Bible, the calendar of the Bible, the two positions of the Roman Catholic church on geocentricity, and so forth. Yet the time to do the research for an article is immense. This issue's article on the Star of Bethlehem, for example, is taken from The Geocentric Papers, whence it came from a 1980 issue of the Creation Research Society Quarterly. At that time it took three months to assemble, starting from references I'd collected over the previous ten years. It is by far the most comprehensive article yet on the topic. One piece of associated research which went into the paper involves the reconstruction of the ancient constellations, particularly here the constellations of the lion and the fishes. For these reasons and more I can no longer promise that the Biblical Astronomer will come out quarterly. All I can promise is that if you pay for four issues, you will receive four issues, even if it takes four years.

Why continue?

Now that's a question I ask myself from time-to-time. The work is not glamorous, it's controversial, I'm ostracized by my fellow creationists, my fellow geocentrists have their own agendas, as well they must considering it takes a maverick to be a geocentrist in the first place. Few contribute financially and fewer still contribute articles; my best supporters are a handful of believers and pastors, several of whom are in trouble with the government for their beliefs that the U.S. Constitution and not the United Nations charter is the law of the land, and that we still have religious freedom in America. So what's the use of continuing with geocentricity, a topic which is so marginalized that most people don't even know about it let along think that it's important?

Why continue? When God's words were established in the common tongues of the nations in the sixteenth century, those words exposed Rome for the monster it is and ended the Dark Ages. In an effort to ex tinguish the light of the Holy Bible so that the monster could restore the gories of the Dark Ages, her “scholastics” of the sixteenth century started to challenge the authenticity and veracity of the very words of God. The first (and only real) challenge was heliocentrism. All subsequent challenges to the authority of the Holy Bible: lower criticism, higher criticism, evolutionism, communism (which is Satanism under a different label), the Councils of Trent, Papal infallibility, Fascism, Democratism, etc., have all been based on the “success” of the Copernican Revolution. That is why we must continue, even in these days when men will not endure sound doctrine (2 Timothy 4:3).
