Scientific Evidence for Biblical Principles
Mathematical Economics, Debt and the Sabbath Rest
This paper shows that the biblical laws concerning the Sabbath and debt forgiveness can be viewed as a rational answer to a technical economic problem. It is shown that there is a mathematical ratio of debt market activity to exchange market activity which is six-sevenths. Moreover, to facilitate this, agents must, on average, rest one seventh of the time given to economic activity. The observance of biblical commandments achieves this ratio. Hence, biblical laws can be interpreted as a means of managing the macroeconomic debt cycle.
Symmetry, Invariance, and the Circular Geometry of Debt as an explanation of Biblical Sabbatical and Debt laws
This paper shows that the geometric representation given is consistent with the economic outcomes induced by the simultaneous observance of a combination of two biblical laws. These laws are related to the weekly Sabbatical cycle and a seven year debt cycle.
