Mass Density Discrepancy

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

The second most outstanding evidence for supernatural design in the physical sciences, the cosmic mass density, received a confirmation. Astronomers applied hydrodynamic calculations to the entire universe and found that contrary to what previous reports indicated, mass-to-light ratio measurements indeed do yield a cosmic mass density value that agrees with recent WMAP results. This confirmation bolsters confidence in a supernatural Creator.
