Confirmation of Big Bang Creation Model

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Although some atheists and young-earth creationists remain skeptical about the big bang, this biblically consistent cosmic creation model continues to pass test after test. A powerful new test for big bang cosmology would be the level of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence in cosmic background radiation. The inflationary hot big bang model predicts that the MHD turbulence level should be low while plasma cosmology models predict that it should be very high. A team of Danish, Chinese, and Russian astronomers in their analysis of the WMAP database placed an upper limit of the MHD turbulence level that proved consistent with inflationary hot big bang models while clearly ruling out all plasma cosmology models. Thus, the big bang creation model has successfully passed another test.
