Ancient Galaxies Confirm RTB’s Creation Model

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Recent observations by the most powerful optical telescopes available have confirmed critical aspects of RTB’s cosmic creation model. After the big bang creation event, the universe consisted only of hot uniform gas. To produce the galaxies and stars seen today, galaxy formation must have started within a billion years of the big bang. Using the Hubble Space Telescope and the ground-based Subaru telescope, astronomers have discovered a galaxy that formed when the universe was only 750 million years old. Additionally, since fewer of these distant galaxies were found than expected, it appears that astronomers are now seeing the start of galaxy formation, which matches predictions of the big bang. As scientific knowledge advances, the evidence for RTB’s creation model continues to increase.
