“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”
“Researchers found a small dust concentration in the disk around TW Hydrae, the nearest young star,” announced a popular science website recently. They continued: “It is highly possible that a planet is growing or about to be formed in this concentration. This is the first time that the exact place where cold materials are forming the seed of a planet has been pinpointed in the disk around a young star.”
TW Hydrae is 194 light years away. This is comparatively close. A light year is a unit of distance, not a unit of time, and is equal to approximately 5,878,625,000,000 miles, or just under 6 trillion miles. The article which reported the find made a number of assumptions and assertions, designed to draw the reader in to a Big Bang interpretation without their realizing it.
The first question to ask is this: Why do they say it is possible that a planet is growing? No one has actually witnessed a planet growing. In fact, we do not have any evidence that planets grow at all. Big Bang theorists assume that the planets of our Solar System came about through the condensation of a dust cloud, but this is simply their conjecture. We know that dust clouds exist and that the star mentioned is orbited by a dust cloud, but that does not mean that a planet is forming. Big Bang theorists allow their imaginations to run wild, while we confidently assert that such things were designed and planned by our Creator.
Prayer: Thank You, Lord, that You gave us clear information in Your word about how You made this universe for Your praise and glory. Amen.
