The stars were always an interest in my youth, learning about their range in color indicating their surface temperature for instance, the coolest stars are red while the hottest stars are orange. The temps in various stars range from anywhere 3,000 to 40,000 Kelvins.
Stars also have different brightness to them. The way scientists can determine how bright a star is, is by color and size of the star. Blue stars shine brighter than cooler red stars which are of the same size while giant stars shine more brightly than little dwarf stars.The common elements which stars of made of are, hydrogen and helium gas. When you combine all the mass from these elements, it creates a gravitational field much stronger than earth’s which prevents the gas from dispersing out into space. Astronomers who embrace evolution, believe that stars randomly form from a collapsed nebula.
A nebula is an enormous “cloud” of extremely low-density hydrogen and helium gas. Gravity is required to keep the gas from escaping so compression is required but compression causes other problems. If a gas cloud were to compress, it would cause increased pressure, increase its magnetic field, and its rotation speed which would resist more compression! In other words, these factors would halt anymore compression, thus no gravity to keep the gas from escaping into space.
Spiral Galaxies like our Milky Way are a collection of many hundreds of billions of stars which rotate. Since it’s not a solid object, stars rotate at different rates within the spiral galaxy. The stars at the edge revolve more slowly than they do at the center of the galaxy. The spiral arms get tighter with each rotation. What this means is, a spiral galaxy is twisting itself up. How does this relate to confirming creationism? Since these galaxies are wrapping themselves up, if they were many millions or even billions of years old, these galaxies would have wrapped themselves all up beyond recognition but being thousands of years old they continue to display majestic beauty that we can all enjoy and observe!
In the beginning of this year, a spiral galaxy known as BX442 dubbed as the ‘grand design spiral galaxy’ was discovered. by a team of astronomers from the University of Toronto and UCLA using the Hubble Space Telescope. Secular astronomers place the time frame 10.7 billion years ago. This discovery falsifies the big bang theory! How?
In the Big Bang theory, galaxies in the early universe were not well defined. In the first several billion years of so-called stellar evolution, most galaxies were supposed to be in their infant stages of growth which are suppose to look irregular and unorganized. The last thing one expect to find in the early part of the universe is a highly advanced design of a spiral galaxy! So not only do spiral galaxies confirm the universe is thousands of years old rather than billions of years old, it also does not agree with the popular big bang theory on how they appear at various stages in the universe!
