Psalm 148:3 “Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.”
Why is the sky dark at night? There’s more to the answer to this question than the fact that the stars do not appear as bright as the sun from Earth.
If stars were evenly distributed throughout an infinite universe – as predicted by the evolutionary big bang theory – a star would be shining no matter where you looked in the night sky. The night sky, while not as bright as the daytime sky, would not be dark anywhere. The fact that this is not what we see at night has been named “Olber’s Paradox,” after the German amateur astronomer who first asked the question.
Ever since, astronomers have been trying to fit Olber’s Paradox into whatever theory about the universe was current. Modern followers of the big bang theory have written that the main reason every inch of the night sky is not glowing with stars is that the expanding universe prevents space from filling with light. New calculations and research now show that if the universe were expanding, it would have very little noticeable effect on the stars in the night sky. Even more interesting, concluded astrophysicist Paul Wesson, is the fact that the main reason the night sky is not bright is that the universe is simply not old enough to have filled with light.
The daily cycle, which includes night’s darkness, is important to almost all the life that the Creator placed on Earth. The truth is that we live in a universe that has been designed for life.’https://creationmoments.com/sermons/olbers-paradox-2/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=olbers-paradox-2&mc_cid=34f24f6311&mc_eid=00c1dcff3c
Isaiah 40:22 “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in.”
‘Words can be difficult to follow because the same word can be used in a technical sense in different ways, depending on the context. To an economist, inflation refers to the rate of rising prices. To a cosmologist, however, inflation refers to a hypothetical era billions of years ago.
The relative timescales are very important to help us evaluate this concept. According to deep-time cosmologists, the universe began in the so-called Big Bang, 13.7 billion years ago, when a quantum event caused a singularity to come into existence. 10-36 seconds later, the universe expanded at a hugely accelerated rate. 10-36 is one over one with 36 zeros after it. At 10-32 seconds after the Big Bang, this inflation ceased, and the universe carried on expanding at what might be termed a “normal” rate for 13.7 billion years, minus 10-32 seconds.
Inflation theory is required to explain how cosmic microwave background radiation is so uniform. It is also required to explain a number of other phenomena, such as the non-existence of magnetic monopoles, or why the universe is flat.
But this rapid inflationary expansion required energy to cause it to happen. Where did that energy come from? The only model they can use suggests that other bubbles of space-time could, and probably have, opened up elsewhere, forming multiple universes, without any realistic beginning.
The lack of logic involved in such deep-time cosmology is staggering – especially when we consider that God has already told us how He made the universe.’ https://creationmoments.com/sermons/cosmic-inflation/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=cosmic-inflation&mc_cid=685257ac52&mc_eid=00c1dcff3c
Evolutionists are a mighty smart bunch. They weren’t there but they throw their millions of years around as FACT. Oh, by the way politicians fit into this as well as they spend your money.
‘Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the historic declaration recognises the extraordinary global significance of the Wollemi Pines, with some of the adult trees estimated to be up to a thousand years old.
“This declaration enables us to take existing protections up another notch, and set specific legislative requirements including a dedicated fire management strategy to secure the survival of the species for generations to come,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Prior to their discovery in 1994, Wollemi Pines were only known to us in fossil records with fossil evidence pointing to the species’ existence up to 90 million years ago.”
Just over 12 months ago, teams from the RFS and National Parks undertook an extensive operation to protect the Wollemis from extinction when the secret site came under threat from the devastating summer bushfires.
The declaration follows a $6 million investment by the NSW Government to embed ecological risk in the fire management framework and bolster bushfire protections for important ecological sites as part of the government’s response to the NSW Bushfire Inquiry.’https://www.nsw.gov.au/media-releases/dinosaur-tree-declared-asset-of-intergenerational-significance

In the Defined King James Bible, page xxiv, there is THE GOLDEN RULE OF BIBLE INTERPRETATION. It says ‘When the plain sense of Scripture makes common sense, seek no other sense. Therefore, take every word at its primary, ordinary, usual, literal meaning, unless the facts of the immediate context, studied in the light of related passages, and axiomatic and fundamental truths, indicate clearly otherwise. God, in revealing His Word, neither intends nor permits the reader to be confused. He wants His children to understand.’
This video is based on a podcast from the Institute for Creation Research. A Bible believing Christian would have to have a wild imagination to get millions of years out of Genesis Chapters One and Two. Remember, when interpreting Scripture ‘When plain sense makes good sense seek no other sense lest it result in nonsense’.
