General Relativity Test

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

The theory of general relativity, which predicts the biblical cosmic creation principles of a transcendent beginning (beginning of matter, energy, space, and time) and continual expansion from a cosmic creation event, has passed another test. Timing measurements of the pulses arriving from a white dwarf-neutron star binary (two-star) system showed consistency with general relativity theory. The measurements extended the range of binary systems for which general relativity provides a correct description of the two stars’ orbital dynamics. Another affirmation of general relativity also affirms biblical cosmic creation.
