The History Channel’s videos on the origination of the universe speaks of six billion years of time for the universe to reach its current condition, and of the trillion of years that it will extend into the futures under different conditions. It speaks so assertively and presents such wonderful graphic that it is as thought that only the narrator has personally observed the events he describes, and that the process he describes is the only possible explanation for the mechanics of the universe, but that you too are observing the very events he and the computer generated graphics are presenting to you as know facts.
The truth is that the universe has only been observed since Galileo and Copernicus, just a few hundred years out of all theses six billion that it is asserted to have existed. What this is is only an explanation that ties known facts into a theory of how things work. For example no one has ever observed two galaxies collide, what is actually seen is a lot of different galaxies in different parts of the universe million and even billions of years ago (because no information can be transmitted faster than the speed of light). Looking at the images of these stars a story is created to explain how they got that way, and what the future holds for them. They cannot know this, it cannot even be known that the observable universe, except for our sun, as it only takes light 8 minutes to travel from it to earth, still exists. It is assumed to exist, or, if you will, taken on faith.
No one observed its creation, and for sure no one has observed its destruction. Those who claim so insistently that it all just began with a “Big Bang” spontaneously are still left with no explanation of how matter can spring forth from no matter. Their purely mechanical universe needs no God, it is its own creator and sustainer, and fully explainable by the human mind.
They believe in their explanation so strongly that they will punish you as a superstitious fool if you have the audacity to hold that there is a creator God who made the universe to His speciation. And if you actually believe that He did it in six days you are certifiably insane. After all they have the fossil records and their telescopes, no god could have created all this in such a short period of time because that’s just not fit into their explanation of how things came to be and what they will become. They conceive of a god of being limited in his power, their mind will just not hold the concept of an all powerful God who, with His spoken Word, could bring forth creation from the void.
Okay, this is an example: “Astronomers using ESO’s Very Large Telescope have obtained what is likely the first direct observation of a forming planet still embedded in a thick disc of gas and dust. If confirmed, this discovery will greatly improve our understanding of how planets form and allow astronomers to test the current theories against an observable target.” Science Daily, Sun, 03 Mar 2013 12:57 CST.
So they found using ESO’s Very Large Telescope have obtained a direct observation of a thick disc of gas and dust. Does that mean that this blob is going to condense into a planet? They sure hope so, but they fail to mention how long this formation may take. From their own theories: “If the disk is massive enough the runaway accretions begin, resulting in the rapid—100,000 to 300,000 years—formation of Moon– to Mars-sized planetary embryos. Near the star, the planetary embryos go through a stage of violent mergers, producing a few terrestrial planets. The last stage takes around 100 million to a billion years.”
So what have they proven? That planets evolve on their own with no need of a God? No, if anything at all they have proven that they can see there is a gas ball out there near a star. They have no more clue how it got there that you or I, but they do have a good story.
“So far, planet formation has mostly been a topic tackled by computer simulations,” says Sascha Quanz. “If our discovery is indeed a forming planet, then for the first time scientists will be able to study the planet formation process and the interaction of a forming planet and its natal environment empirically at a very early stage.” Yeah right, for the next 100 million to a billion years they can watch all they want (their own time frame).
“It is fascinating to consider that the most basic biochemical building blocks that led to life on Earth may well have had an extraterrestrial origin,” said UC Berkeley chemist Richard Mathies, coauthor of a paper published online last week and scheduled for the March 10 print issue of The Astrophysical Journal.
“Opens the door to the possibility” who are they kidding, they only allow for two possibilities: 1-Life giving amino acids squirmed together in the primordial slime. They give zero probability that a creator God made it all with His spoken word. They have no problem believing that it all just jumped into existence all by itself with a Big Bang, but “Let there be Light” just boggles their minds.
Just why do you think that they spend so much money on radio telescopes monitoring for some sign of code being transmitted? Why is the main goal of the Mars Rover to find signs of life? I will tell you why. If you have seen the movie Paul about a space alien, you will remember the two geeks on the road and a the alien pull into a trailer park, ran by a Fundamentalist Christian who had raised up his daughter to believe in the literal truth of the Bible. Well when the cops arrived they snatched the girl and took her along for the ride. She quoted scripture to Paul about creation, and Paul asked her, “What about me?” Well that is why they spend so much money looking for life other than on earth, so they can say to Christians, “What about this? Does this not prove that there was no creation, and evolution is the answer?”, and what you going to say?
They can have their explanation, I have mine.
