Evolutionary astronomers and cosmologists have their preconceived ideas of how the universe formed based upon their godless religion of evolution.  When they look out into the universe, they expect to see things that fit into their model.

Yet every couple of months we read a new report stating that they have observed things or modeled things that do not match their evolutionary model of the universe and this month is no different.  This week another report has been released stating that the scientists were surprised by the findings of what a gamma-ray burst has revealed.

Scientists use orbiting observatories to detect the powerful gamma-ray bursts which only last a brief amount of time.  Once they have identified the direction from where the burst came from, then scientists turn their telescopes towards them.  These telescopes are usually ground-based telescopes that can detect both visible light and the infrared light considered to be an afterglow from the gamma-ray burst.

NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope spotted one gamma-ray burst that named GRB 090323.  They then used a couple of ground based telescopes to study the gamma-ray burst.  One of the ground based telescopes, the Very Large Telescope caught the intense light given off by the gamma-ray burst as it passed through its own galaxy along with a nearby one.  This gave the researchers a very rare look at the galaxies in the light and allowed them to get a better understanding of what the galaxies were made of.

Sandra Savaglio from the Max-Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Germany said, “When we studied the light from this gamma-ray burst we didn’t know what we might find. It was a surprise that the cool gas in these two galaxies in the early Universe proved to have such an unexpected chemical make-up.  These galaxies have more heavy elements than have ever been seen in a galaxy so early in the evolution of the Universe. We didn’t expect the Universe to be so mature, so chemically evolved, so early on.”

The only reason they were so surprised that there were so many heavy elements in a galaxy that they believed to be quite young is that they started with the wrong presuppositions to begin with.  Starting with the account of creation given to us by God in Genesis 1 and then tallying the ages and generations Adam to Christ, we find that the Creation occurred a little over 6,000 years ago.

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!
