There are many sites that purport the Sun's diameter in different measures ranging from under 864,000 miles to as much as 870,000 miles across. The Sun expands and contracts at different stages of its cycles and therefore what can seem to be differences in size. However, the mean diameter is 864,000 miles. If you Google "Sun 864,000 miles" you'll get about 6,000 hits referring to the diameter of the Sun being 864,000 miles. As well as the recognized astronomical authorities such as Astonomy Magazine (see second paragraph under "SIZE") and NASA (located under the second picture of the Sun).
One proof, better than Google, is a Total Solar Eclipse. A Total Solar Eclipse occurs because the Sun and the Moon appear to be exactly the same size in the sky and the Moon covers the Sun precisely. However, in reality, the Moon's diameter (2,160 miles) is 400 times smaller than the Sun, but the Sun is 400 times farther away. Hence the Moon's diameter being 2160 miles appears to be the same size as the Sun (2,160 miles x 400 = 864,000 miles). If those numbers are off by even a small difference there would be no "Total Eclipse" as is seen from Earth. There would only be a completely blacked out Sun if the Sun was smaller than it is or the Moon bigger than it is and only a Partial Solar Eclipse if the Sun was larger than it is and the Moon smaller than it is.
The Imperial measures and those of the celestial bodies recur in the Bible. The metric will show no such parallels. A strong indicator the message is for those who use and relate to those measures and the evidences presented.
If you measure an average man's arm there is a constant relative size of 18" from the elbow to the fingertips as the Da Vinci illustration of the Vitruvian Man shows. As there is also a constant measure of 6" from one side of the palm to the tip of the extended thumb.

Requests have been made for what is termed a Statement of Faith for the Firmament. Hopefully the following will address those requests and give Light to the seers.
Statement of Faith
The term translated faith in the Bible is e-muwn in the Hebrew and pistis in the Greek from the prime-root peitho which are verbs and not nouns. A verb is an action and a noun is a person, place or thing requiring no action. The word Faith has been morphed by traditional religions into meaning belief. The etymological root of both in synopsis means; the circumspect perusal of the evidences to come to the truth and persuaded thereby. In the case of the Word of God it would equate to trusting the Truth. Getting to the Truth requires an action, belief does not. If a thing is not the Truth, it's a lie. The Truth is referred to as Light by the Word of God. God has commanded Lights in the Firmament to give Light unto the Earth and to separate darkness (lies) from Light (Truth), therefore lies from Truth. Therefore the Statement of Faith for the Firmament is Light/Truth.
When two are in a dark room together, one having eyes to see and the other being blind, neither can see. But when the Light comes on, the one with eyes can see but the other remains in darkness. So also are the Children of Light and the sons of darkness.
