A new scientific test, analysis of early stardust, serves to strengthen the case for supernatural cosmic design. For life in the universe to be possible a very large number of stars manifesting a broad range of masses must form relatively soon after the first-born stars. Such a circumstance requires that the first-born stars produce and eject a just-right amount of dust with the just-right chemical composition. Both the number density and the mass range of the first-born stars must be fine-tuned in order to get the necessary quantity and type of dust in the required locations. Japanese astronomers analyzed this important cosmic design feature and found the required fine-tuned parameters—a result that denies naturalism but affirms supernatural creation.
