The Spiral Galaxies

“And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD…”
PSALM 89:5

A galaxy is an enormous (only about 588,000,000,000,000 [trillion] miles in size) assembly of stars, interstellar gas and dust. Our galaxy is called the Milky Way; it has over 100 billion (100,000,000,000) stars. Some galaxies are round or elliptical or even irregular in shape. But some of the most beautiful galaxies are spiral galaxies.

Spiral galaxies rotate slowly. The inner regions of the galaxy rotate faster than the outer, this means the galaxy is constantly becoming more and more twisted up as the spiral becomes tighter.

After a few hundred million years, the galaxy would be wound so tightly that the spiral would no longer be recognizable. According to the top evolutionary scenario, galaxies are supposed to be billions of years old. Yet there are a lot of spiral galaxies we can see. This suggests that they’re not as old as the secular scientists say. Which is consistent with the bible.

Spiral galaxies are just another problem for evolutionists and not a problem for those who believe what the bible says.

Food for thought: Ecclesiastes 1:6 “The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.”

The writer of Ecclesiastes says the wind travels in circuits. Our modern meteorologists and aerologists are just now discovering this.


Remember, Ecclesiastes is believed to have been written around 1000 B.C.

Zachary,
I don't remember hearing about this one! It is some more excellent proof for a young earth.

If you have not already noticed, my blog is suffering. Right now it is just wallpaper. At least it is an improvement on yesterday. It was fully functional last night for a little bit, but I guess the problem wasn't solved.

Elizabeth,

I noticed your blog is down. :(

According to status.blogger, the filter they are having trouble with (your blog must be on it) just won't work right.
So, they're going to move blogger to better machines. It shouldn't be to long before your back up and running.

If you haven't already, visit the link for more info. :)
