Creation Event Confirmation

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Since the Bible predicted thousands of years ago that the universe possesses fundamental big bang features, scientific confirmations of such big bang features provide powerful evidence for the Christian faith. In big bang models the slightly higher temperature of the radiation left over from the creation event on one part of the sky relative to the opposite part is explained by our Local Group of galaxies being pulled toward that direction by a distant concentration of mass. A recent all-sky infrared survey indeed confirms that such a mass concentration exists in the direction of the dipole feature of the radiation from the creation event.
