Cosmic Density Parameters

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Better instrumentation brings scientific advance; consequently, a new measuring tool under construction promises substantial evidence for supernatural design. Astronomers may soon show more evidence for the biblically predicted big bang creation event and for the supernatural design of the universe by using a wide-field space telescope to carefully measure weak gravitational lensing. This instrument would allow astronomers to measure the cosmic dark energy density and the cosmic dark matter density with unprecedented precision as well as the spatial distribution of cosmic dark matter. Such precise measurements will enable astronomers to independently confirm the strongest scientific evidence for supernatural design and may yield discoveries of additional cosmic characteristics manifesting supernatural design.
