The Furthest Galaxy and How We See It

To read more about the Distant Starlight “Problem” see here and here.

On November 15th, Hubble released an article on their website about the most distant galaxy they have ever found. At some 78,184,047,528,993,000,000,000 miles away, this galaxy has been said to give astronomer’s an amazing new sight into galaxy’s evolutionary history.

The diminutive blob, which is only a tiny fraction of the size of our Milky Way galaxy, offers a peek back into a time when the universe was 3 percent of its present age of 13.7 billion years. The newly discovered galaxy, named MACS0647-JD, is observed 420 million years after the big bang. Its light has traveled 13.3 billion years to reach Earth.

Some might wonder, when reading this quote, “why do the universe is billions of years old and then say this galaxy is only 420 million years old?” The answer is found in the complex theory of the speed of light.

According to common knowledge, lights travels at 186,282 miles per second, 11,176,920 miles in a minute, 67,0615,200 miles per hour, 16,094,764,800 miles per day, 112,663,353,600 miles per week, and some 5,878,499,814,210 miles per year. As you can see, light travels very fast.

Anyway, when evolutionists “find” a new galaxy they look at it and calculate how many light-years it is away from the Earth. Then, once they have calculated that, they take the supposed age of the universe, 13.7 billions years, and work out the current age of the galaxy they are seeing.

However, since the galaxy they are looking at is so far away the evolutionists assume that it is just in its “baby” stages and this will give us a great look into the evolution of galaxies. But, something the evolutionists forgot is that this galaxy has always been visible but we just haven’t developed, until now, the right tool to see it. Its light is always there, the only way the evolutionists can guess at the age of the galaxy is because of the speed of light.

Well, there we have it, we somehow got back to the gigantic debate about distant starlight! To answer this question I recommend you read this article and this one. If you still have questions go here and see Jason Lisle, who wrote the first article and has done years of research into this, at his website. He gets all kinds of questions about starlight and he is literally a genius on the subject.

I find it interesting how the evolutionists, in general, make a job out of assuming things and then make a hobby out of accusing us of assuming things!

No Time for Evolution

timein23Yesterday, we talked about there being no time for a black hole to 1) create time 2) exist outside of time 3) create anything 4) create anything because exiting outside of time would destroy it if the “creation” lived inside of time. I believe some explanation for these points are needed.

Black holes, or anything, can’t create time

Only God has, can or ever will create or end time. Nobody, human or animal, unintelligent or intelligent, can create time or end it. If somebody believes that they could indeed create time but they can’t prove it because we live in time then there is a test for such a person.

First off, if they can create time, then they should be able to at least remove themselves from time. Can anyone do that? Also, if they had the power to create time, then they should have the power to end it. Anybody up for that challenge?

It says in the first three words of the Bible that God created time, “In the beginning.” Let’s believe that!

Black holes can’t exist outside of time

If a black hole is to exist outside of time, it must be eternal and existent before time was created. So, in order for a black hole to exist outside of time, it must have been made without time, outside of time, before time and needs no time to run or “bang”! Not very promising for evolutionists.

Black holes can’t create anything because it requires time

Even if a black holes is outside of time, before time, needs no time, made without time it still can’t make anything without time. And since it can’t create time, it can’t create anything. Good thing we know God who did make time.

Black holes can’t create a non-conforming creation

Even if, against all laws of the world, the black hole could create something, he wouldn’t be able to create something that exists inside of time. And, even if it could, that creation would constantly be destroyed and recreated as the black hole would never be able to stay stable enough to not create more. That or it would keep “banging” over and over, killing us all.

Well, we have laid the axe to the roots of evolution. Without the big bang, the evolutionary theory loses its bravado.

No Time for God?

timefellAwhile back, I saw the ending of show on the Science channel on whether or not God created the universe. Of course, the people on the show and the people making the show already had a belief that God didn’t so, instead of seeing the truth, they made an argument based off what they believed. The show was doomed from the beginning.

Anyway, their argument against God went something like this:

The whole universe came by way of the Big Bang. Right before the Big Bang happened, the entire universe was a black hole. It was the only object in the universe and time did not exist. Therefore, God couldn’t have even created this black hole because there wasn’t any time for God to be there.

They then explained that the black hole exploded and the universe “happened”! But, if this is there argument, than it can be refuted by their same method.

With the advice of my new logic book I recently bought, I’m going to write it out their argument in logical format.

God needs time to exist (false premise)

Time did not exist before the Big Bang (true premise according to their belief, so true or false premise depending on how you look at it)

Therefore, God did not exist before the Big Bang (once again, true or false depending on how you look at it for the same reasons as above)

So, technically, looking at everything strictly as they are, all three parts are false. Two false premises + false conclusion = invalid argument. Now, let’s use their same logic and reverse it on them.

Unintelligent, animate objects need time to exist (true premise)

According to evolutionary belief, time did not exist before the Big Bang (true premise)

A black hole is an unintelligent, animate object (true premise)

Therefore, a black hole could not have existed before the Big Bang (true conclusion that follows from the premises)

Three true premises + true conclusion = valid argument.

Also, if this black hole did, by no possible standards, exist before time then it wouldn’t be able to create the universe as

  1. It can’t create time
  2. It can’t survive outside time
  3. It couldn’t make anything as that would require time to do
  4. If it did make something that thing would constantly be destroyed and remade as time could destruct the black hole’s action

That kind of defeats their argument, doesn’t it?

Cold vs. Body

jhgfh 123Earlier last fall, we had to set up a sprinkler system to make sure our corn didn’t freeze. One night, after freezing temperatures, we woke up to the above sight by our corn! It was all pretty cool. Each blade of grass had about an inch of ice growing off them and the fence was adorned with icicles.

Looking at these pictures brought up a question. How do we keep so warm during the colder times when we are constantly surrounded by cold things? Then I kept it going and began to wonder about all the animals and how they stay warm. I began to wonder what amazing features gave just the right creatures for just the right climate. So my research began.

Fur

mud_creek_winter_survival_program_440

This one is one of the most famous ones. When a land-dwelling animal has to survive in the colder temperatures, you will find him almost always, if not always, covered in fur. his fur, no matter how thick, traps heat against the animal so it doesn’t lose it in cold temperatures.

If I could compare it to anything I would say it is like hair. As probably most of us guys know, during winter, when you get a haircut that cuts most of the hair off, you can feel a change in temperature, suddenly outside will seem colder.

This is because you are losing the heat that is exiting from your skin. When you have hair on top of the skin it acts like a shield and keep the heat in and the cold out.

Blubber

Although blubber is most often found in sea-going animals that live in cold waters, many animals also use it.

The polar bear uses both fur and blubber to create exceptional insulators that will keep much of his heat in. This may be one of the singular reasons polar bears are the largest carnivore in the world.

When blubber is found in sea animals it is always in much larger scales, almost to the point where it looks like the whole creature is a big, lard ball with a face. I mean, look at a elephant seal for a moment! That thing is just plain out fat! But, the blubber surrounding his body is required for him to survive.

Conclusion

Whether it is fur or blubber, the animals around us can survive the cold because God made them capable of overcoming what the climate might throw at them.
