Creation Cosmology<br />Big Bang vs. Creation<br />Origin of Stars<br />Solar System: Evidence of Design<br />Age of the Cosmos<br />Are we being told all the evidence or just selected information to support a particular idea?<br />
The Handy Space Answer Book, 1998<br />“Fifteen to twenty billion years ago a big bang, or explosion, occurred, creating the universe. The universe began as an infinitely dense, hot fireball, a scrambling of space and time.”<br />The Big Bang<br />
The Big Bang<br />Expansion of space and time<br />Original Matter<br />A Universe With No Center<br />Does this sudden explosion of nothing into something (the universe) sound like a miracle?<br />
The Big Bang<br />Paul Davies, physicist and evolutionist, in his book - The Edge of Infinity, describes the big bang this way:<br />“[The big bang] represents the instantaneous suspension of physical laws, the sudden abrupt flash of lawlessness that allowed something to come out of nothing. It represents a true miracle…”<br />Why is this more scientific than <br />In the beginning God created?<br />
17 times the Bible declares that God stretched the heavens<br />2 Sam 22:10 Job 37:18 Isaiah 51:13<br />Psalm 18:9 Isaiah 40:22 Jeremiah 10:12<br />Psalm 104:2 Isaiah 42:5 Jeremiah 51:15<br />Psalm 144:5 Isaiah 44:24 Ezekiel 1:22<br />Job 9:8 Isaiah 45:12 Zechariah 12:1<br />Job 26:7 Isaiah 48:13<br />God Stretched the Heavens<br />
God Stretched Out the Heavens<br /><ul><li>Isaiah 42:5 This is what God the LORD says— he who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:
Isaiah 44:24 "This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretchedout the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself,
Isaiah 45:12 It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretchedout the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.
Isaiah 51:13 that you forget the LORD your Maker, who stretchedout the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, that you live in constant terror every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who is bent on destruction? For where is the wrath of the oppressor?
Jeremiah 10:12 But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretchedout the heavens by his understanding.
Jeremiah 51:15 "He made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretchedout the heavens by his understanding.</li></li></ul><li>Is the Big Bang True?<br />If the big bang is true then:<br /><ul><li>2,000 years of incorrect interpretation
Light Spectrum<br />Blue<br />Red<br />Moving away<br />Moving toward<br />Compressed (blue side)<br />Stretched (red side)<br />IR<br />UV<br />Redshift of Starlight<br />Redshifts are used to describe the expansion of the universe – the distance of a galaxy from the earth due to the stretching of the light waves.<br />
Redshifts<br />Russell Humphreys, Ph.D. Physics, <br />Technical Journal, 2002<br />“Astronomers have confirmed that numerical values of galaxy redshifts are ‘quantized’, tending to fall into distinct groups. …<br />That would mean the galaxies tend to be grouped into (conceptual) spherical shells concentric around our home galaxy.”<br />
Implications of Quantized Redshifts<br />Russell Humphreys, Ph.D. Physics, Starlight and Time, 1994, p. 128.<br />“…the quantized distribution of galactic red shifts, observed by various astronomers seems to contradict the Copernican principle and all cosmologies founded on it – including the big bang.”<br />
Redshifts and Galaxy Distances<br />Concentric circles 1-million light years apart<br />Milky Way<br />Has this been confirmed and what does it mean?<br />
Confirmation of Quantized Redshifts<br />W. G. Tifft and W. J. Cocke, Global redshift quantization, Astrophysical Journal, 1984.<br />“There is now very firm evidence that redshifts of galaxies are quantized …”<br />
Confirmation from Hubble<br />W. Napier and B. Guthrie, Quantized redshifts: a status report, Journal Astrophysics and Astronomy, 1997.<br />“… the redshift distribution has been found to be strongly quantized in the galactocentric frame of reference.”<br />What does this mean to the big bang?<br />
A Special Place<br />John Hartnett (Ph.D. Physics), Journal of Creation, vol 18(1), 2004, p. 9.<br />“Newly published data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), led by Max Tegmark of the University of Pennsylvania, shows that our galaxy is centered on a great concentric distribution of galaxies…<br />continued<br />
If this map is correct, the evidence seems to suggest that the so-called ‘cosmological principle’, upon which all of big bang cosmology is based is wrong.”<br />John Hartnett (Ph.D. Physics), Journal of Creation, vol 18(1), 2004, p. 9.<br />
Halton Arp<br /><ul><li>Key actor in the debate on the origin and evolution of galaxies in the universe.
Staff astronomer at the Mt Wilson and Palomar Observatories in California for 29 years. Earlier in his career, he was Edwin Hubble's assistant.
He has earned the Helen B.Warner prize, the Newcomb Cleveland award and the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award. </li></li></ul><li>Quasars and Galaxies<br />Quasar (Markarian 205)<br />Galaxy NGC 4319<br />
Halton Arp on Redshift<br />Halton Arp Quasars, Redshifts and Controversies, Interstellar Media, Berkeley, California, 1987.<br />“The fact that measured values of redshift do not vary continuously but come in steps—certain preferred values—is so unexpected that conventional astronomy has never been able to accept it, in spite of the overwhelming observational evidence.”... <br />continued<br />
Halton Arp on Redshift<br />“For supposed recession velocities of quasars, to measure equal steps in all directions in the sky means we are at the centre of a series of explosions. This is an anti-Copernican embarrassment.” <br />
A New Big Bang Bombshell<br />An open letter to the scientific community by 229 scientists, May 2004<br />New Scientist, www.cosmologystatement.org<br /><ul><li>An open exchange of ideas is not tolerated
The big bang today relies on a growing number of hypothetical entities, things we have never observed</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>The big bang theory cannot survive without fudge factors
In no other field of physics would this continual recourse to new hypothetical objects be accepted
The big bang can boast of no quantitative predictions that have been validated by observation</li></li></ul><li>Evidence Against the Big Bang<br />Redshift<br />Cosmic Background Radiation<br />Galaxy formation<br />Spiral Galaxies<br />Supernova Remnants (SNR)<br />Distribution of galaxies<br />1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics<br />Medium and heavy elements<br />Star formation<br />

CRITICISM<br />Content : The content is very broad, but there are lots of information and facts that I have learned.<br />Design : the design is so nice, and related to the topic.<br />Style : It really catches the students attention.<br />
