Hello all you good people out there!
How have you been faring this last week? Have you been putting all the small pieces of your lives back to normal after the holidays? Mine is about back to pre-holiday status and I am so thankful for it!
Let’s take a look at a third theory proposed by evolutionists as to how the moon got to be in its current location. It is called the accretion theory (also known as the condensation or nebular contraction theory). This hypothesis proposes that small pieces of material floating around in outer space resulted in the formation of both the earth and the moon. It also states that the moon ‘just happens’ to orbit the earth.
There are some inherent faults with this. For one there is an assumption that everything would just fall together into two large round chunks, with the moon orbiting the earth. However when calculated, this can be ruled out due to the density of space cloud materials. Present day observations of these outer space clouds show that they are much less dense for such an occurrence to happen.
Secular science proposes one more theory; the lunar-origin theory. This one states that billions of years ago in the ‘beginning’, the early earth and another large celestial object collided. This collision resulted in a big cloud of debris that over time came together to make the moon. Problems with this enormous impact include a total meltdown of the earth’s crust, and it is questionable that another object could have the exact sped and direction needed that would cause the formation of the moon.
So why are the secular scientists trying to make these theories work? Because none of the lunar-origin theories work! And why is that? Because they are not the truth. So what is the truth?The truth of the origin of the moon is; God created it during the six day creation week. “And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth.” And that comes from only One who was there in the beginning.
So why do secular scientists refuse to acknowledge an intelligent designer? Because they do not want to be accountable to an all knowing, all caring God.
And that my dear friends, is the truth. God loves you. So much so, as a matter of fact, that He sent His son to take our sins so He could die with them resulting in you and I being reconciled with God. And that is the most amazing thing ever!
Take care my friends and we will come together next week once again. God bless and take care!
