More Pre-Protostellar Cores

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Researchers have affirmed a feature of the biblical big bang creation model and denied a specific criticism from young-earth proponents. Two different teams of astronomers have discovered five more pre-protostellar cores (dense molecular clouds of gas prior to star formation). These cores, along with other pre-protostellar cores discovered during the past year establish that astronomers really are witnessing and understanding the processes leading to the conception and birth of stars across the whole range of star masses. Thus, the young-earth denial of ongoing star formation is now thoroughly refuted, while the biblically predicted continuously expanding universe under constant physical laws is validated anew.
