  • Strong Solar Storm Expected to Hit Earth

    It’s storming outside — but we’re not talking about thunder and rain. The energy from two back-to-back coronal mass ejections hit Earth today as expected, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Coronal mass ejections are bursts of radiation … Continue reading

    On its way to an encounter with the dwarf planet Pluto, the NASA New Horizons spacecraft has passed its last major milestone (Neptune’s orbit) before its prime mission, to explore Pluto, the former ninth planet of our solar system, and … Continue reading

  • Tension, not extension in creation cosmology

    For a considerable period of time modern biblical creationists as well as non-biblical creationists, like the progressive creationists (with an old earth/big-bang-embracing worldview) have used many biblical texts to argue that Scripture supports cosmological expansion of the universe.

  • Solar System Geysers–Each a Fountain of Youth

    A sticky problem for nature-only origins just got 100 times worse. When discovered about ten years ago, a remarkable plume of water ice ejected from Enceladus, an icy moon in Saturn’s E ring, left secular notions of the moon’s origin … Continue reading

  • Surprised scientists come up dry in search for water

    Astronomers tried to find water on three planets circling sun-like stars. Instead, they found a cliche: the search for water, using NASA’s Hubble telescope, has “come up nearly dry.” That’s surprising, according to the researchers, who checked their results against … Continue reading

  • Secular scientists support what the Bible says about creation

    by Dennis Marcellino Did a God cause this Universe to come into being? And was that done in six literal 24-hour days as the Bible says? In spite of the mocking in the culture by comedians and political TV shows, … Continue reading

  • Was the Big Bang Just Proven by Astronomers?

    “Theory No More? Scientists Make ‘Big Bang’ Breakthrough with Find” (2014, emp. added). “Space Ripples Reveal Big Bang’s Smoking Gun” (Overbye, 2014, emp. added). “Big Bang’s ‘Smoking Gun’ Confirms Early Universe’s Exponential Growth” (Vergano, 2014, emp. added). “Scientists Find Cosmic … Continue reading

  • Every Planet Surprises Secular Astronomers, III: Formation Theories

    By: David Coppedge “Surprise” or “puzzling” are the most common words in news reports about bodies in the solar system.  Here are recent examples that discuss the origin of planets. Lucky breaks:  In a Perspective piece in Science Magazine, “Forming Terrestrial … Continue reading

  • Every Planet Surprises Secular Astronomers, II: Outer Planets

  • Moons Origin and Age Solved?

    By: David Coppedge A number of popular articles are claiming the moon’s age is all but solved, until one reads below the headlines. When Nature published a new paper that added a piece of evidence to models that the moon formed by … Continue reading

  • Two Solar System Surprises

    By: David Coppedge Sometimes we learn more from surprises than predictions. Asteroid rings Rings belong around giant planets, not asteroids.  Tell that to Chariklo, an asteroid between Saturn and Uranus that boasts not just one ring, but two!  This first-of-its-kind … Continue reading

  • Nothing new under the Cosmos

    By: Jonathan Sarfati We have received many requests to review this new Cosmos series. These requests are very reasonable, since the series is just one more materialistic push by the secular media. So this article provides the background for this new series and its predecessor from … Continue reading

  • New science on the young sun, and Earth migration

    by Wayne Spencer For many years planetary scientists and Earth scientists have debated what is called the ‘faint young sun paradox’. Creationists have also addressed the issue, as it demonstrates a problem with evolutionary origin of life scenarios on Earth.1-3 The sun’s … Continue reading

  • ‘Smoking Gun’ Evidence of Inflation?

    by Jake Hebert, Ph.D. * On March 17, a team of radio astronomers announced they discovered purportedly direct evidence for cosmic inflation—a critical component of the modern Big Bang model. To make this discovery, the researchers used a specialized telescope … Continue reading

  • Has the ‘smoking gun’ of the ‘big bang’ been found?

    by  John G. Hartnett “Astronomers Just Detected the Beginning of the Big Bang”, “Big Bang’s Smoking Gun Found”, “Astronomers Discover First Direct Proof of the Big Bang Expansion” and “Major Discovery: Smoking Gun for Universe’s Incredible Big Bang Expansion Found” were … Continue reading

  • Cosmos 2.0 Repeats the Flaws of Cosmos 1.0

    By: David Coppedge Neil de Grasse Tyson is showing himself to be a good disciple of Carl Sagan, never questioning his master. A lot has changed in science since 1980, when Carl Sagan’s Cosmos first aired.  Inflation theory was brand new; punctuated … Continue reading

  • Cosmologists Were Wrong About Galaxy Evolution

    By: David Coppedge Fifteen years ago, no cosmologist would have predicted mature galaxies early on, but they keep getting found – earlier and earlier. Astronomers just set a new record.  They found mature galaxies dated at just 1.6 billion years … Continue reading

  • Cosmos TV Relies on Imagination, Not Science

  • Asteroid Medley Challenges Naturalistic Origins

    by Brian Thomas, M.S. * Data from recent spacecraft flybys challenge the prevailing naturalistic perspective on asteroid origins.
