It’s been five years since the Hubble telescope was able to produce an image from the dark corners of deep space! I really look forward to these types of scientific observations. The further you look out into space, the more complex the big bang theory and other related theories becomes as a result of failed expectations and the more observable data for a younger Universe which confirms the Bible.
“Hubble’s newly installed Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) collects light from near-infrared wavelengths and therefore looks even deeper into the universe, because the light from very distant galaxies is stretched out of the ultraviolet and visible regions of the spectrum into near-infrared wavelengths by the expansion of the universe.” -Hubblesite
We are blessed to live in a day in age where we are seeing new discoveries like this one. It displays God’s highly advanced intelligent design, His power in the creation. It’s not good news for evolutionists as it challenges more of their theories. New Scientist openly admits this…
“THE universe is far more transparent at high energies than we thought. This discovery – based on sightings of unexpectedly bright objects that should be too far away to see so clearly – may call into question our understanding of how galaxies are born and evolve.”
“Most light travels through the cosmos unimpeded. But photons with very high energies of more than 100 gigaelectronvolts can collide with intergalactic infrared light. The longer these photons have to travel, the greater their chances of colliding and the less likely they are to reach Earth. As a result, distant blazars – galaxies with gluttonous black holes at their centres whose flares are pointing directly at Earth – are supposed to be much dimmer at higher energies than those that are not so far off.”
Most astronomers are surprised that galaxies exist at all let alone they are pretty bright to begin with supposedly 600 million years after the big bang. This is because there is a“lumpiness problem” in cosmology in which structures display abrupt appearance rather than various slow changes. So what about using light distance with all this talk about billions of years, does this cause a problem for creationism?
Not many know this, but light travel causes a major problem for the big bang. So much so, there is an hypothesis known as “inflation” which was invented in 1981 in order to solve the light travel problem…Jason Lisle, Ph.D. outlines it in detail…
“The temperature of the CMB is essentially the same everywhere5—in all directions (to a precision of 1 part in 100,000).6 However (according to big bang theorists), in the early universe, the temperature of the CMB7 would have been very different at different places in space due to the random nature of the initial conditions.
“These different regions could come to the same temperature if they were in close contact. More distant regions would come to equilibrium by exchanging radiation (i.e. light8). The radiation would carry energy from warmer regions to cooler ones until they had the same temperature.”
“(1) Early in the alleged big bang, points A and B start out with different temperatures.
(2) Today, points A and B have the same temperature, yet there has not been enough time for them to exchange light.”
“The problem is this: even assuming the big bang timescale, there has not been enough time for light to travel between widely separated regions of space. So, how can the different regions of the current CMB have such precisely uniform temperatures if they have never communicated with each other?9 This is a light-travel–time problem.”
Time measurement doesn’t cause a problem for the creationist model, the speed of light is not constant, as we’ve been taught since the early 1930s, but has been steadily slowing since the first instance of time. We have observed the speed through various past data and found the speed of light being higher 100 years ago and as high as seven percent in the 1700s! Keep in mind the limitations of historical science. We cannot go back in time or have clocks from A point to B point to determine more accurate measurements. But one thing is for sure, it makes more sense from a Biblical point of view than a world point of view! Can’t wait till the new deep field image!
