Dramatic New Confirmation of Creation Model

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference informatio

Recent results provide dramatic confirmation of crucial components of RTB’s creation model. The images of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) from the WMAP satellite provide a remarkable picture of the universe when it was only 380,000 years old. From those images, scientists can precisely measure several fundamental parameters of the universe. Using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), astronomers are now able to make measurements of those same parameters at a much later age of the universe. The results derived from the SDSS match those extracted from the CMB, providing a remarkable confirmation of scientists’ understanding of how the universe developed over the past 14 billion years. Consequently, this confirmation puts RTB’s creation model on firm ground.
