We are taught that atoms became galaxies and stars.” Really? How, indeed, considering that an evolutionist in Scientific American stated:
It might seem that star formation is a problem that has been solved. But nothing could be further from the truth. The birth of stars remains one of the most vibrant topics in astrophysics today.1They also describe “elements [turning] into solid, rocky planets,” but there are serious scientific problems with this idea of planet formation. In 2011, National Geographic News reported:
The more new planets we find, the less we seem to know about how planetary systems are born, according to a leading planet hunter.2Well, at least it’s known how earth’s closest celestial neighbor formed, right? No—an evolutionary website reported in 2008:
The finding [of lunar water] calls into question some critical aspects of the “giant impact” theory of the Moon’s formation.3Finally, there have always been serious challenges to the bizarre idea that over time inorganic nonlife became organic life. “The origin of animals is almost as much a mystery as the origin of life itself,” said one evolutionist.4
If people really want to know their origin, as well as the origin of the universe, they would do well to consult the written record of the One who was there “in the beginning.”
