New Ceres Data Defies 4.5 Billion Years

This has been and is going to continue to be a reoccurring theme! As we explore the solar system, Planetary scientists who believe in evolution are going to have to come up with new speculation on why the data is not confirming billions of years. Here is a prediction, when New Horizons passes by its next object in deep space, it too is going to discover youthful features that will surprise scientists much like Pluto did, much like other planets and moons did in our solar system.

So what is the new data which defies 4.5 billion years? Here take a look at this picture…

ceres bright-spots

You noticed bright spots on the surface. These bright spots on Ceres have stunned planetary scientists because of their implications. The bright spots as you see here are epsom salts which came from water-ice. Occator is the name of the crater where we see here the epsom salts. Planetary Scientists believe this crater is 80 million years old, however, the bright spots they say in their own words, “should not have lasted nearly that long.”  They are quite right, because you have a dwarf planet with no atmosphere, and over millions or even billions of years would have long gone. Water evaporates very rapidly with no atmosphere and what they say would be left is…“magnesium sulphate spots.” So if Ceres was that old, we wouldn’t be seeing what we are seeing today! But if Ceres is younger then what they say, these features are a confirmation rather than a data conflict! There is no doubt, the evidence suggests that Ceres is younger than its assumed old age.

Since this conflicts with planetary evolution, evolutionary scientists have to work on their story on how the impossible just happened before their eyes and then fit that back into their belief system. This is why it takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does believing in God!  I love space exploration, I hope to see a lot more, these discoveries are very exciting and also a confirmation of creationism.

Ceres Disproves Model

We are living in some exciting times, because we get to see things and learn about things in our solar system and the Universe in general which no man has seen or learned before! Do some of you remember the story about how the solar system was formed?  Those of you who went to public schools like myself were surely taught this, and those in private Christian or religious schools may have touched about this subject as well when discussing the differences between creationism and evolution.

Here is how the story was told in the text books in public schools as also told in nature

“4.5 billion years ago, the Solar System formed in a disk of gas and dust particles that surrounded the newly born Sun. The ‘giant’ planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune) formed first, within the few million years of the disk’s lifetime. Closer to the Sun, the small, rocky ‘terrestrial’ planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) took tens of million years to form, by collisions of numerous smaller objects generated in the disk. Myriad small bodies formed the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.”

I’m sure that most of you remember that story when you were in school or currently are in school in the upper grades. Currently, the DAWN spacecraft’s mission was to gather data from the largest asteroid called, “Ceres” for the purpose of confirming such a story in order to gain more understanding but as it turned out that wasn’t the case.

Bright spots was discovered on Ceres and the data gathered by DAWN revealed it is mostly likely, salt. Here is another discovery

“Dawn has also found ammonia-rich clays on Ceres, a second Nature paper reports2. Ammonia is more common in the frigid outer Solar System than in the asteroid belt where Ceres reigns.”

Also…“Ceres occasionally sports a cloud of ice and dust within one of its largest craters.”  This was discovered by the DAWN last February  as it approached.

Like Pluto, it was discovered that Ceres is active. So what does this all mean? I’ll let the very first article which I quoted in nature answered that question.. “Despite decades of attempts, no computational realization of standard formation theories has reproduced the mass and orbital distribution of both the terrestrial planets and the asteroids.” 

This doesn’t mean space exploration is a waste of time, to the contrary. It’s these secular models which go nowhere in endless circles being disproved by direct evidence which gives secular scientists a lot of work to revise their story about how our solar system supposedly evolved that leads to no understanding. The more we learn about the solar system the more we learn how these models don’t work. And the reason for this is, our solar system did not evolve. It was intelligently designed by God.

We know the designer of the universe but does that mean we should not explore it and learn about it? No! You never read or see mainstream creation scientists or advocates talking against technology or space exploration. There is nothing anti-biblical learning about God’s created handy work! And there is nothing wrong about the evidence disproving these stories either! More on space exploration to come and more.

 

First Paper On Pluto Reveals More Complexity

“At 4.5 billion years old, scientists did not expect to find an active dwarf planet, but New Horizons captured a trove of evidence upending this belief.”

-ABC News

“The practice of declaring an unfalsifiable theory to be scientifically true is pseudoscience

-Philosopher of science Karl Popper’s scientific epistemology

When declaring an unfalsifiable theory in this case planet evolution is pseudoscience. The amazing discoveries which have been found so far are a prime example. Evolution always sounds better in story format because one can come up with all kinds of conclusions which are not necessarily true or on the right path, but when it comes to direct observations it is falsified.

The first paper reveals more complexity and a lesson on how a “belief” is in the process of trying to be rescued from evidence that contradicts it. You see scientists who believe in evolution assume or shall I say estimate that Pluto is currently 4.5 billion years old. Many of the secular scientists predicted that Pluto was way past its prime because of its assumed age, so they believed that Pluto would be nothing more than a cold and lifeless planet but still interesting to explore! When New Horizons flew by and was able to start downloading its data (currently only 15 percent has been downloaded so far) we find that the direct observations of Pluto was far from that! So says Alan Stern who is the principal scientist on the New Horizons project, “Finding that Pluto is geologically active after 4.5 billion years…there’s not big enough typeface to write that in.”

New Horizons was also able to capture some amazing data of Pluto’s moons which also doesn’t agree with the assumption of billions of years old. Nix and Hydra have bright surfaces, this presents a major problem for the belief in billions of years old because there is a lot going on externally such as radiation darkening, the transfer of darker material from Charon via impacts, impacts with dark Kuiper Belt meteorites. The evidence suggests youth not old age. It will to be interesting the various stories they will come up with to try to preserve billions of years old that defy common sense.

Pluto has 3-kilometre-high ice mountains, pretty spectacular!  This indicates that Pluto is geologically active, but this presents a major problem for the old age assumption once again, where is the energy that can be sustain over billions of years coming from to create these ice mountains? This is when the storytelling begins, you have one idea that suggests (with no evidence) that uranium is present on Pluto. What do you think is strange about this idea that considers radioactivity as the energy source that supposedly been working over billions of years? Well if the radioactivity is heating the plains why are the ice mountains which are next to it, not affected by it?  Here is an experiment for you, take a piece of ice and place it next to heat and see what happens, then you know I mean :)

The conclusions to keep it so old is not science rather just a belief that they think needs to be preserve otherwise the rest of their theory in other areas of evolution go down too. Pluto is not 4.5 billion years old! Neither are its moons! The new data coming in from New Horizons confirms the Bible more than planet evolution!

Creationists Rejoice With Latest Picture of Pluto

We thank the New Horizons team for their awesome work on being able to not only flyby at 30,000 miles per hour passed Pluto but also being able transmit back these high-resolution images of never-before-seen surface features! Features that confirm youthful activity rather than billions of years. Pluto has no significant tides so therefore evolutionists cannot even used that as an explanation of tidal heating for its youthful appearance. Before the new data, evolutionists were arguing it was impossible for a planet to look youthful without tidal heating, Pluto says otherwise :)

Latest Image of PlutoWhen you have a small planet which is 3,670,050,000 miles away from a major heat source in this case the sun, the laws of Physics say that Pluto should lost its heat quicker than bigger planets which are closer to the sun. Moreover, heat sources are more restrictive on the dwarf planet (Pluto) such as radioactive elements depleting over time and when it is supposedly billions of years old. In other words, Pluto should not have active radioactive elements existing today.

Press Release from the New Horizons team on September 10th…

“Pluto is showing us a diversity of landforms and complexity of processes that rival anything we’ve seen in the solar system,” said New Horizons Principal Investigator Alan Stern, of the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), Boulder, Colorado. “If an artist had painted this Pluto before our flyby, I probably would have called it over the top — but that’s what is actually there.”

  “Pluto is surprisingly Earth-like in this regard,” Alan Stern remarked today, “and no one predicted it.”  

While Alan Stern says nobody predicted Pluto being Earth-like, creationists have predicted youthful activity on Pluto. Even on this blog, there have been comments on scientists discovering Pluto is not in agreement with their assumed age which confirms the Biblical account that the Universe was intelligently designed by a creator, namely God!

The discovery is not complicating creationism unlike the evolution of planets. There are no teams of creation scientists working on this data in order to come up with a highly speculative explanation to try and fit it into the framework of the Bible. But we all rejoice, non-scientists and scientists alike in the great discovery which the New Horizons team has done an incredible job with! We look forward more data that was taken from the dwarf Pluto and its moons. By the way, once that data starts coming in on Pluto’s moons, those two are going to be shockers, because of their youthful appearance so stay tuned! :)

Science: Bringing Home More Confirmation

How does science prove our solar system is young not billions of years old? We are not talking about “evolution” which is often times confused with the general term “science” for indoctrination and political reasons. Rather science being: “a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge.” Evolution, whether it be planetary evolution, or Darwinian evolution is not science because previous fundamental knowledge within the evolutionary framework is not corrected but rather the new knowledge is corrected in order to maintain the previous knowledge regarding anything they feel that evolves in nature or the universe.

Back to answer the question, how does science prove our solar system is not billions of years old. The answer is: activity. A young solar system is going to have a lot more activity than an older one which makes space exploration more exciting! Pluto is the most recent which has surprised scientists with its activity but there is another and it’s coming from the DAWN spacecraft.

Keep in mind, evolutionary scientists do expect surprises, they feel they know a lot, but not everything but discovering evidence of youth in our solar system is a shocker. And the closer the spacecraft gets, it’s going to be even more shocking to them.

In phys.org

“I expected to be surprised because we knew so little about Ceres,” Christopher Russell, Dawn’s principal investigator and a planetary scientist at the University of California, Los Angeles, said in an email. “I never expected bright spots and a pyramid to be the surprises.”

Evolutionary scientists were expecting inert chunk of rock and ice, because they believe Ceres is billions of years old which sits in very cold space and if it was, this would have been a good prediction. But reality says, it is much younger because of its activity. This is not the first time, every single body our spacecrafts have explored, sent back data which confirms youth not old age.

Here are a few other examples:

  1. Evolution scientists have been hard at work trying to close the two billion age gap they claim Saturn has. “Planets tend to cool as they get older, but Saturn is hotter than astrophysicists say it should be without some additional energy source.”  If you leave your hot coffee in room, it gets cooler because the room is cooler. But you put your coffee in a microwave (which has another energy source), it heats up, thus your energy source. Basic physics.
  • Enceladus, the little Arizona-width moon that sends out five gigwatts of heat through its south-pole geysers. Currently there is no work on trying to come up with an energy source that could last for billions of years.
  • Mountain range discovery: On Saturn’s third largest moon and the 11th largest in the entire solar system, there are 12 mile high and thin mountains on lapetus which was discovered by Cassini. Possible solution: tidal heating.

 

  • No tidal heating but yet activity: “Already, these images are challenging views about how small, icy worlds work.” The land of icy mountains produced earlier “looks relatively young—so young, in fact, that it suggests the planet is still geologically active.”  This is what happens when a dwarf planet is not billions of years old but rather quite young! :) There is no hope of a tidal heating explanation here, although this does prove geological activity is not necessarily produced by tidal heating which is something that was debated in this blog a number of years ago. Evidence conformation! 

 

As the mission for its next adventure in the Kuiper Belt when it flies by, it’s going to turn up more evidence for a youthful universe that will give evolutionary scientists more work on trying to correct the data so it fits within their framework. But we creationists rejoice as new exploration brings home amazing discoveries than confirm its intelligent design features :) 

Data Confirms: Pluto is not billions of years old

We are living in exciting times when it comes to space exploration! As predicted in this blog, Pluto would contain youthful features, just like a pattern of other discoveries through out our solar system which doesn’t match the billions of years assumption. Now scientists have put an upper limit on age at 100 million years but this doesn’t mean that Pluto is 100 million years old. Calculating a lower limit is an ongoing project for them so it will be interesting to see what they come up with.

It is highly unlikely that secular scientists will give up on the notion that Pluto is billions of years old. Even millions of years old is a problem for planetary evolution.

Let’s move on to some of the data which has been transmitted back so far from New Horizons. Principal investigator Alan Stern turns the explanation to the new findings over to co-investigator Spencer who says this about the data…

Closeup of Pluto

“The mountains seen, which are “quite spectacular,” are up to 11,000 feet high—incredibly tall for such a small body, rivaling the Sierra Nevada. Spencer also says that Pluto’s mountains were not created out of nitrogen ice, methane ice or carbon dioxide ice. “You just can’t make mountains out of that stuff.” Spencer thinks we are looking at bedrock in the picture posted above. 

Tidal heating has been used in other discoveries as the source for powering recent geological activity in places like Enceladus whose geysers are still active. Because without a power source, it would be impossible for geological activity to sustain itself over the course of billions of years especially in cold space pretty far from the sun. Like Enceladus, Pluto also has young features on its surface.

“Pluto is the first ice dwarf ever studied that does not orbit a gas giant like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus or Neptune. Bodies orbiting the gas giants experience gravity-driven tidal stresses, generating internal heat that can, in turn, drive geological activity.”

As predicted in my previous post, a team of secular scientists will be working on coming up with ideas on how Pluto could be billions of years old, and yet have a heat source that hasn’t frozen out yet despite it being small, with no chance of tidal heating, and is extremely far from the sun. In reality, their project of trying to fit it into billions of years (because that is what they believe not what the data is giving them) defies the laws of physics.

Not to overlook Pluto’s moon Charon which is half the size of Pluto circles each other in gravitational lockstep every 6.4 days. It also has some young feature, confirmation of youth rather than billions of years old.

In CBS news

“Originally, I thought Charon might be an ancient terrain covered in craters,” said Cathy Olkin, New Horizons deputy project scientist. “And so, Charon just blew our socks off when we had the new image today. We’ve just been thrilled. All morning, the team has just been abuzz, ‘look at this, look at that, oh my God that’s amazing!'” 

New Horizons was able to capture Charon which had surprised scientists because of the lack of impact craters. It is amazing, this whole 700+ million dollar space project is quite amazing. It’s going to get better as New Horizons continues to transmit data it gathered while flying by Pluto and its moons so stay tuned! :)

New Horizons Makes History With Pluto

After being under the gun to get the spacecraft built within a time frame that would cut the voyage to Pluto by four years, taking off in 2006, then traveling 9+ years in space over the course of more than 3 billion miles faster than any thing made before it, New Horizons makes history by exploring a planet never seen this close by mankind along with its five moons!

Cheers erupted as New Horizons began to communicate with Earth again after being silent for 22 hours because it was programmed to be totally focused on collecting data of Pluto as it flew by!  Currently, most of the data remains on the spacecraft and will take quite some time to transmit it all back to earth. The highest resolution taken so far of Pluto will be released sometime on Wednesday. What an amazing day, what an amazing accomplishment with this intelligently designed spacecraft!

Latest Pluto Image

Encounters like these always presented a challenge for those who believe the solar system is billions of years old. Many predictions have been made on that belief. Pluto is no different…

Once considered an icy, dead world, the planetoid has yielded signs of geological activity, with evidence of past and possibly present-day tectonics, or movements of its crust.”

“This is clearly a world where both geology and atmosphere climatology play a role,” said Alan Stern, New Horizons lead scientist, with the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. He noted that it appears that nitrogen and methane snow fall on Pluto.

More challenges may include once the data has been transmitted back to Earth: atmospheric escape rates of molecules are found to be too rapid to sustain for billions of years making a confirmation for a younger Pluto than what is believed among secular scientists. This will in turn create a team of planetary scientists who will work hard to come up with something which would put it back to billions of years.

The measurements of Pluto’s atmosphere will be an interesting one especially for creationists. Another challenge that may present itself is…the data will not confirm the moons were formed by collision causing another team of scientists to come up with a way to preserve a popular idea using collision as a cause on how those moons had formed. Unlike Mars, they will be no search for life on Pluto, however, speculation may emerge about life on Pluto in its supposed very distant past, perhaps as a selling point to go to Pluto again. In any case, they don’t need to use a selling point like that, we ought to explore Pluto again, maybe next time send two probes: one that could go in orbit and another on the surface of Pluto!

We are certainly living in some amazing times with all this space exploration, thanks to the Lord :)
