More Evidence for First Generation Stars

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

A team of American astronomers has confirmed an important prediction of the biblically predicted big bang creation model. The team analyzed x-ray spectra data for the intracluster medium (ICM) of a large number of galaxy clusters. They demonstrated that the data are “consistent with a significant fraction of the ICM metals produced by an early generation of Population III stars.” What these words mean is that this discovery confirms a key prediction of the big bang creation model, namely that the universe’s first stars (Population III stars) will be very massive and virtually metal-free. Consequently, the young-earth and many atheistic cosmic models stand refuted while the biblical cosmic model stands supported.
