Discovery of iron in the universe’s first stars provides evidence for big bang creation. Measurements of the iron abundances in extremely distant quasars confirm that the first stars must have formed when the universe was only 200 million years old. This finding is consistent with the results from the WMAP, thereby strengthening the case for supernatural design inherent in the WMAP results. Such an early arrival of stars after the big bang permits a relatively early entrance of humanity into cosmic history—an observation that speaks of a Designer’s careful, loving work.
