Evidence From Astronomy

December 25th, 2009


Contrary to popular opinion, planets should not form from the mutual gravitational attraction of particles orbiting the sun. Orbiting particles are much more likely to be scattered or expelled by their gravitational interactions than they are to be pulled together. Experiments have shown that colliding particles almost always fragment rather than stick together. Similar difficulties relate to a moon forming from particles orbiting a planet.

Despite these problems, let us assume that pebble-size to moon-size particles somehow evolved. Growing a planet by many small collisions will produce an almost nonspinning planet, because a spin imparted by impacts will be largely self-canceling. Yet all planets spin, some much more than others.

The more we explore and understand our solar system, the more reasons we have to acknowledge that it did not evolve, but was created.

By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and by the breath of His mouth all their host. (Psalm 33:6 NASV)


Evidence from Astronomy

Evolutionists have no adequate explanation for why, if our solar system evolved, the planets do not all spin in the same direction. Most planets rotate in the same direction [prograde orbit] as their orbits; but Venus, Uranus, and Pluto rotate backwards. In the nebula model of solar system evolution, the 72 [170] (see note below)  known moons should orbit planets in the same direction.  Instead, at least eight moons have backward orbits [retrograde orbit]. The planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune have moons orbiting in both directions!

These types of undisputed observations contradict the current theories of how the solar system evolved. They are, however, exactly what an all-powerful Creator, who wanted to reveal His hand in creation, would place in the universe for our enjoyment.
What grand diversity we see exhibited by our Creator!

The above article was taken from In the Beginning, 7th Ed., p.21 as written in A Closer Look At The Evidence by Richard & Tina Kleiss

Dominion and awe belong to God; he establishes order in the heights of heaven. Can his forces be numbered?…

(Job 25:2-3)

EDITOR’S NOTE: I suspect the 72 moons were calculated from old information. My links point out that there are 170 moons as of this posting. This number is accurate as of March 2009 but I expect it to continue to change as time goes on.  Whatever the actual number is, I find the quantity to be irrelevant within the context of this article which concentrates on the rotational directions of moons around our planets within our solar system.

Evolutionary scientists believe that matter spewed from exploding stars was used to form planets. They teach that the solar system and the sun formed from this great cloud of compacting gas. Yet they have no undisputed explanation for why Mars, Earth, Venus and Mercury do not have the same high percentage of hydrogen and helium as our sun and the rest of the visible universe. Less than 1% of these planets are composed of hydrogen and helium.

How could this be, given the current prevalent theory that our solar system is the result of a condensing  cloud of hydrogen gas? How could 99.86% of the mass within our solar system (our sun) be made of hydrogen and helium, while the four planets closest to the sun are composed almost entirely of heavier elements?

Something is seriously wrong with the theory of solar system evolution, which is being taught to our children as if it were a fact.

The above was taken from In The Beginning, 7th Ed., p.19 as quoted in A Closer Look At The Evidence, by Richard & Tina Kleiss.

Praise Him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies. Let them praise the name of the LORD, for He commanded and they were created.  (Psalm 148:4-5)
