The Universe is designed.
in Religion

By janesixjanesix 31 Pts
There are a group of seven tangent numbers( positive and negative) that describe the make up of the solar system, and possibly further. These tangents are based on three groups of degree numbers: 20, 40, 80, 160, 320 and 36, 72, 90, 108, 144, 180, 216, 256, 270, 288, 324, 360, and 60, 120, 240, 300. The tangents are (positive and negative) 
This is based on work by Carl Munck and others. I have expanded on the original tangents discovered of 3.0776 and .7265. There is a possible 8th tangent of .509, with degree numbers of 27, 207, 153, 333
These tangents and numbers describe orbital velocities, diameters of planets, surface areas, orbits in miles, distances between bodies, circumferences of bodies, and more. These numbers are based on ideal numbers for diameters etc. I suggest these numbers were of the original design of the solar system, and maybe the entire universe.
A few examples:
Earth diameter 7920 miles 
7920 tangent 0
Sun orbital speed 450,000 mph
450,000 tangent 0
Earth circumference 24,900 miles
24,900 tangent 1.732
Earth to moon 238,900 miles
238,900 tangent .839
Earth surface area 196,900,000 sq miles
196,000,000 tangent -.363
Sirius A diameter 1,480,000 miles tangent .839
Proxima Centauri diameter 133, 320 miles tangent -1.73
Alpha Centauri diameter 1,057,700 miles tangent .363
Milky Way diameter 105,700 LY tangent .839
Observable universe diameter 465,000,000,000 tangent 1.73
Planetary tangents based on diameters:
Sun 0
Mercury .363
Venus .839
Earth 0
Moon 0
Mars 3.077
Jupiter 1.732
Saturn .839
Uranus .363
Neptune 0

  • Are you really trying to use math to prove the existence of intelligent design?

    The unexamined thought is not worth thinking.

  • janesixjanesix 31 Pts

    It's not math, it is numbers. 
  • @janesix

    You rounded up quite a few numbers here to fit your theory (Earth diameter: 7,917.5 mi, not 7920...  The equatorial circumference of Earth is about 24,901 mi... you dropped the 1, why? And also why the equatorial one? The meridional circumference of Earth is 24,860 mi... )

    Also, your whole theory falls apart when measured in km or any other system...

  • I do like the idea of intelligent design mind you but I have my doubts.  I have heard it's usually the last transition before entering in a completely secular world view. 

    The unexamined thought is not worth thinking.

    I am coming from the opposite direction Atheist to theist.

    Really? So, you're first gonna believe in a scientific divine first and then a religious ritualistic divine? Seems kind of backward to me.

    You say .....

    The Universe is designed

    My reply .....Well the burden of proof is with you to prove the validity of your assertions until them it’s merely your opinion and nothing else ....  
  • janesixjanesix 31 Pts

    I don't get these numbers out of thin air. They are sent to me.
  • janesixjanesix 31 Pts

    I'm not trying to prove anything. I'm looking for someone who has more information.
  • AlofRIAlofRI 212 Pts
    MATH was "designed" by MAN. The universe includes a great number of galaxies millions of light years away. Why would a "god" design a system so vast that only a tiny few of s/he/its creations will likely ever "see" it. IT … happened. 

    "I do not feel obliged to believe that the same god who has endowed us with sense, reason and intellect, has intended us to forego their use."  (Galileo)

    IMO. Our propensity to believe in several mythological books/scrolls causes many of us to "forego their use". 
  • janesixjanesix 31 Pts

    Math is inherent in nature, as it was designed by God. Humans just discover it.

    One of the facts you are missing is that all of these values change over time. The average distance from Earth to the Moon, for example, increases approximately by 4 cm per year - we cannot measure it directly, obviously, but we know that it is true based both on theoretical physics, and on related observations of other pairs of bodies. So these numbers, regardless of what pattern you can find for them today, did not have that same pattern, say, at the time Ancient Egyptians walked the sand in Africa. Unless the intelligent designer somehow wanted these numbers to obey that pattern at our specific historical period and not before or after it, this cannot indicate the intelligent design.

    But on a deeper level, do realise that all the numerical patterns are a result of our numerical and quantitative system. We have a system with the base of 10, we measure distances in miles or kilometers, we measure time in seconds... All of these are very arbitrary and can be changed at will. In fact, the definition of meter changed relatively recently, when we started defining it based on the distance light in vacuum covers in a given period of time, whilst in the past it was defined based on a length of a very specific arc on the Earth's surface.
    The intelligent designer is very unlikely to have used the exact same system. Especially since we have multiple systems today, all of which are used widely, and it is not clear to me why everything must be measured exactly the same way Munck suggested.

    The idea to find a pattern for the observed quantities that would suggest an intelligent design is very interesting; I really like the proposals of this kind! The idea is not novel, but it is cunning. Similar ideas were proposed as a way to try to establish whether we live in a simulation or not. I read an interesting article recently suggesting that if we live in a simulation, then it is very likely that the designers of the simulation have left some garbage code, or bugs, or deprecated functions somewhere, and if we can find them as something that obviously violates all the laws of the Universe that we are familiar with, then that would be a strong indication that our world is a Matrix.

    But the particular attempt you described does not seem practical to me.
  • janesixjanesix 31 Pts

    I am only at the beginning of my research. What I do know is that the creator (divine or not, I say divine) used multiple, interlocking means of measurement, which includes most known measuring systems. All the way from the foot and mile, to the megalithic yard and even the metric system. 
  • DeeDee 421 Pts

    Really you’re not trying to prove a “god”? .....Why then did you state to @AlofRI ...Math is inherent in nature, as it was designed by God. Humans just discover it.
  • janesixjanesix 31 Pts

    No, I am really just stating what I think is true. And looking for others who may have information to add on tangents and numbers in the design of the universe.
  • AlofRIAlofRI 212 Pts
    @janesix NO! Math was one of the first SCIENCES devised BY MAN to help explain what was going on in the world, and WHY. There is nothing "natural" about it.
