Evolutionary astronomers continue to struggle with their cosmological model of the universe.  Virtually every theory and scenario they concoct to explain the origins and existence of the universe tells them that they are missing nearly 95% or more of the matter that makes up the universe.

Their blind faith in their godless Big Bang religion tells them that there has to be more matter than they have been able to detect.  Therefore, if they can’t see it, detect it or measure it, it must exist in some plane of dimension that we mere mortals are incapable of comprehending.  So, they just call it ‘dark matter’ and say it exists even though there is not one shred of real evidence that it does.

If you type in ‘dark matter’ into the search box on Creation Revolution, you will get dozens of references to articles that discuss the elusive cosmic ghost.  Most of these articles discuss various studies that have been casting doubt on the very existence of dark matter.  Today’s article is going to add another chapter about the astronomical apparition.

With the aid of the European Southern Observatory’s La Silla Observatory in Chile, a team of astronomical researchers mapped the heavenly skies and calculated the mass within that field.  Looking out some 13,000 light years from the Sun, they mapped the motions of over 400 stars.  Then, using the laws of gravity, they worked in reverse in order to calculate how much matter is present in the study area.

Then they calculated the total mass of what they saw and compared it their gravity related calculations.  Following the comparison of mass between the two calculations, Christian Moni Bidin, team leader from the Universidad de Concepcion in Chile reported,

The amount of mass that we derive matches very well with what we see.  But this leaves no room for the extra material dark matter that we were expecting. Our calculations show that it should have shown up very clearly in our measurements. But it was just not there!

The Milky Way cer­tainly ro­tates much faster than the vis­i­ble mat­ter alone can ac­count for.  So if dark mat­ter is not pre­s­ent where we ex­pected it, a new so­lu­tion for the mis­sing mass prob­lem must be found. Our re­sults con­tra­dict the cur­rently ac­cept­ed mod­els. The mys­tery of dark mat­ter has just be­come even more mys­te­ri­ous. Fu­ture sur­veys, such as the (Eu­ro­pe­an Space Agen­cy’s) Gaia mis­sion, will be cru­cial to move be­yond this point.

Bidin also stated that any other attempts to verify the existence of dark matter from Earth via methods using comparisons between the interactions of normal matter particles and dark matter particles are more than likely doomed to fail.

How many times do they have to try and fail to find something before they realize that it’s not there?  But their overwhelming problem is that all of the evolutionary models insist there has to be significantly more matter and energy in the universe to hold it together than what they can find.

They could save themselves millions of dollars, thousands of man hours and a universe full of frustration if they just read the Bible about how God created the heavens (Gen 1) and stretches out the stars (Job 9) and upholds the universe by the word of his power (Heb 1).  The next time you look up to the stars in the night sky, think of Job 9:6-9 which reads,

…who shakes the earth out of its place, and its pillars tremble; who commands the sun, and it does not rise; who seals up the stars; who alone stretched out the heavens and trampled the waves of the sea; who made the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the chambers of the south…

Creation Astronomy (DVD)

Genesis teaches that God created the entire universe supernaturally, only thousands of years ago. Yet, most people are convinced that the universe started in a big bang billions of years in the past. In this illustrated lecture, astronomer Dr. Jason Lisle shows viewers that when the evidence of nature is understood properly, it lines up perfectly with the clear teachings of Scripture. The heavens declare the glory of God!
