Hi everyone! Did you see the incredibly beautiful waxing moon last night? As it set over the western horizon, the image just became huge! Gorgeous! I just love star gazing. Which brings us to our:
Question of the week:
Fact: Stars show inconsistent patterns throughout an ordered universe. How can this happen with the big bang explosion theory, since explosions have predictable elements and patterns that generate chaos?
Good question! And the answer is simple – it can’t! All explosions, whether here on earth or in space, have predictable components. In the simplest of these patterns, for example, debris is moved rapidly away from the center of the explosion. Another predictable pattern is, objects moving away from the explosion spin in the same direction because the force of the explosion comes from the same central point. And finally, it is predictable debris from an explosion ends up unorganized, haphazard, and unarranged.
This, however, is not what we see in our beautiful night sky. Instead we see planets orbiting stars, and moons orbiting planets, spiral galaxies, and matrixes. All are arranged in order.
Yet within our very own solar system, we have planets that spin in opposite directions and on horizontal as well as vertical axis’s. And there are galaxies that spin in opposite directions too. If the universe came into existence by an explosion, it would be expected that everything would spin in the same direction. This puzzles secular scientists, but is a testimony to an intelligent designer.
So many more unpredictable celestial patterns exist within the order of the heavens. Here are a few to look up or maybe I will expand on them later;
- Eccentric orbits of exoplanets,
- Unexpected long life of brilliant blue stars, and
- Unexplained spirals of galaxies.
…Just to name a few.
Also this month, just after sunset look for Jupiter dominating the southern sky and Venus in the southwest.
Happy star gazing!
Until next week, God Bless!

Another example of intelligent design are the hot Jupiters. Secular models of other solar systems predicted planet formation to be the same as our own solar system. That is, the small rocky planets appear closest to their suns, and the big gas planets orbit farther away. Their astronomy indicates it is actually impossible to have gas giants exist close to their suns because secular theory states gas giants begin with ice cores. It is impossible for ice to form in the extreme heat found so close to a sun.
The first confirmed exoplanet (that is viewed with an telescope and photographed) to orbit a “normal” star (sun) was discovered in 1995 ( labeled 51 Pegasi b). And, you guessed it, it was a hot Jupiter!
“So it is interesting that the very first planet discovered orbiting a solar-type star defied the secular prediction.” How did the secular astronomers respond? They stated 51 Pegasi b was and anomaly. Well, since 1995, many more hot Jupiters have been discovered. “In fact, far more hot Jupiters have been discovered than other types of planets.” There is no explanation for this…oh except for maybe they were created that way on purpose. The fingerprints of God are everywhere!
