When you examine the facts that the earth is held in place by gravitational forces, and that the earth in ‘in the midst’ of ether, not actually ‘hung on ether,’ the bibles claims that the earth is literally ‘hung on nothing’ still stands correct because it is not placed on anything, and nothing is holding it up, it is a scientific fact that objects in space work differently then ‘weights’ work here on earth because astronomic objects are propelled by gravitational forces and mass still free floating in space.
