Since the Bible predicted in considerable detail thousands of years ago that the universe possesses fundamental big bang features, scientific confirmations of such big bang features provide powerful evidence for the Christian faith. The big bang creation model and the stellar evolution models that arise from it predict that no burned out stars should exist between the Chandrasekhar limit (limit at which black holes form) and the electron capture limit (limit at which electron captures detonate the star’s core). While observations had established the accuracy of Chandrasekhar’s limit many years ago, only now has the lower limit also been confirmed. This discovery strengthens both the reliability of big bang physics and the physics of stellar structure and evolution.
