• This is a new section being rolled out to attract people interested in exploring the origins of the universe and the earth from a biblical perspective. Debate is encouraged and opposing viewpoints are welcome to post but certain rules must be followed. 1. No abusive tagging - if abusive tags are found - they will be deleted and disabled by the Admin team 2. No calling the biblical accounts a fable - fairy tale ect.

The origin of the universe cannot be determined scientifically

Science requires:
  • Observation
  • Repeatability
The origin of the universe does NOT meet either of those requirements.
As you should well know, by now, an entire phenomenon need not be observable or repeatable to be studied by scientific method. Science often involves looking at puzzle pieces to study the finished puzzle. Predictions about the pieces need to be observable and repeatable in order to make deductions about the bigger picture. Why can't this register in your brain?

Light speed across vast distances allows us a look into the past. Simply put, observation of the movement of bodies in the universe allows us to trace back trajectories and consider rates of movement. Predictions can be tested, and conclusions can be drawn.

The scientific method requires observation and repeatability.

Indeed there are other types of science... since science just means knowledge.

Sure, but we still need to LOOK at the pieces. How to we "observe" the "big bang"?

I understand it completely. Again, how do we "repeatably observe" the "big bang"?

God stretched out the universe. We see the results of that.
Simply put, observation of movement bodies in the universe allows us to trace back trajectories and consider rates of movement.
Unless you are, again, extrapolating beyond what is reasonable.

That takes us back to the Big Bang; and the BB is not a satisfactory explanation for the beginning. Now try going back further than the BB, and science comes to a grinding halt.

If God created the universe and light from the farthest stars was immediately seen on earth, how could the speed of light be used to date the stars?

That would mean that He created the emanated light at the same time he made the star.

Exactly.

Science may not be able to prove the origin of the universe, but it sure can get pretty darn conclusive. It does show that there is a God who is eternal and powerful (Rom 1:20).

You cant repeat the origin of the universe, so the origin can't be observed, so no bigger picture.

On the other hand, we do have a written record that tells us how the universe came about and how God created it. Whatever lame claims the evolutionists make, they can't explain away the facts.

Essentially, astronomers determine the age of stars by observing their spectrum, luminosity and motion through space. They use this information to get a star's profile, and then they compare the star to models that show what stars should look like at various points of their evolution.

Evolutionists concoct unprovable speculations about the stars then claim those speculations are scientific facts or evidence.

What, were you born in a barn?
I'm an astrophotographer, not an astrophysicist. I would suppose mathematical models are verified mathematically. You're a bright guy. Google it.
That picture's pretty cool! How'd you do that? Is that a big telescope, or a smaller private one? Is that one exposure?
