What about where the author says "... and hangeth the earth upon nothing"?
Ken's comment on 2012-11-05 14:31:49:
What "Scientific Fact or Principle" is, "There is a place void of stars in the North"? If this is being portrayed as a statement that the earth is unsupported then a few short verses later "The pillars of the heavens quake" would seem to belie any advanced knowledge of how gravity and the Cosmos works.
