Yeah, I know this is a necrothread, but since there are probably other believers who might find the OP's "argument" persuasive...
OK, first of all, the passages cited are not "evidence" or argumentation, nor were they intended to be. They are poetic expressions of praise for Yahweh, probably intended to be chanted or sung during worship services. Trying to take such literature and use it as "evidence" is to rip it from its context and authorial intent and employ it for an alien purpose. It's like trying to publish Amazing Grace
in a physics journal. Biblical authors would surely have been capable of writing arguments for Yahweh's existence if they had intended to do so. That said, you're the one misusing your holy scripture, not us, so let's get started.
If we want to treat these passages as literal argumentation, the the first thing to note is that (when used in this manner) they present testable
claims. Any believer who wants to assert that the heavens prove Yahweh's existence ought to realize that in doing so they're sticking their epistemological neck out: if the heavens should turn out not
to provide evidence for Yahweh, or to provide evidence against
him, the believer should be ready to admit that their claims have been falsified.
"The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
If this is so, then there would be no need to cite this passage
at all. Instead, one could torn to the skies themselves, providing the astronomical facts that validate Yahweh's existence and glory. The very fact that Ibelieve is using the Bible
instead of astronomy is evidence that the claim is false. If the constellations of the Zodiac were all clearly arranged
in the form of Hebrew words spelling out "Holy is the LORD who was and is and is to come," or if the Andromeda Galaxy was shaped like the Tetragrammaton, etc., Ibelieve could have pointed to that, instead of citing Bible passages. With modern instrumentation, Ibelieve would have had access to much more evidence than the ancient Hebrew writers, making his argument even more powerful.
That he made no attempt to do anything along these lines indicates that not only is his claim false, he knows
it is false.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
3 There is no speech or language
where their voice is not heard." PSALM 19:1-3
Metaphorically stated, but true enough. One anticipated consequence of this is that if their "speech" and "knowledge" is about Yahweh, we would expect peoples all over the world and throughout history, having no contact with one another, to converge on a single explanation for the celestial bodies: that they are the handiwork of a single, male deity who does not play well with others. If the heavens do not make at least this much obvious, then they're not doing a very good job of glorifying Yahweh now, are they? "But--free will!" Sorry, it's one or the other. Either the heavens are arranged in such a way as to glorify Yahweh, thus making his existence unambiguous, or Yahweh prefers to play secret agent and construct a Cosmos so that people can just as easily name other suspects (goddesses and gods) as its creators or none (atheism).
So what do
the heavens actually "say?" They present us, quite unambiguously, with a Cosmos that is inconceivably vast, inconceivably old, and not in any sense "about us." The real Cosmos turns out to be as far from a "the heavens are Yahweh's throne and the Earth is his footstool" setup as it is possible to get.
"Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one,
and calls them each by name.
This is inaccurate. Yahweh does not bring out the starry host one by one. They shine day and night. That they appear to come out "one by one" is an illusion caused by the fading of scattered sunlight in the atmosphere, and different levels of stellar brightness that make some stars visible before others. Yahweh would have to talk awfully fast--there's something on the order of 400 billion
stars in the Milky Way alone, and it is only one of at least a hundred billion galaxies. The vast majority of these are not even visible to the naked eye. The notion that they were all created to impress humans is patently ridiculous. Any entity capable of doing so would have no reason to.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing." Isa 40.26
As has already been pointed out, this is not true. The sky is littered with the remnants of novas and supernovas, black holes consuming stars, and so on. Our own solar system is the product of the supernova detonations of an earlier generation of stars.
The Cosmos is indeed amazing, far beyond the wildest dreams of ancient Hebrew scribes. Rather than proclaiming Yahweh's glory, they demonstrate that he is just a tiny little human construct by comparison, a parochial tribal deity cast in the mold of the status-seeking primates that created him.
