==Psalm 104:5 He laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be moved forever
If an historian recorded that America laid the foundations of the steam engine, so that it should not be moved, would you assume that the author meant that steam engines remain stationary?
I would think they had it backwards because a steam engine is built so that is should be moved.
My question is how, once one accepted that the ‘proper’ scriptural interpretation was that the Earth did not move, would one disabuse himself of that notion?
Obviously the majority of the Christian world changed their mind on the issue over the centuries. What was the mechanism of change?
I don't consider a historian to speak for God. We are talking about God's word or do you just consider the Bible to be a history text?
That depends on the context. He might have recorded that it should not be moved, but plate techtonics says it did anyway.
Sorry, I think I misread your question. I have absolutely no idea what that statement is supposed to mean without any underlying context. It appears to be nonsensical.
