Early Stars Support Biblical Creation Model

Recent results by Japanese astronomers confirm a critical step in the biblically predicted big bang creation model and provide additional evidence for a supernatural creator preparing a life-supporting universe. The elements necessary for life (C, N, O, etc) are produced in the interior of stars and distributed throughout galaxies when those stars explode. The very first stars contained only hydrogen and helium and, as a result, were very massive and burned out in a few million years or less. However, the heavier elements produced from these stars seeded subsequent, longer lived stars leading to the formation of our sun. The model of the Japanese astronomers demonstrates that some of these earliest second generation stars have been found and that these stars indeed were forming at the same time that ashes from the very first and largest stars were being exploded into the interstellar medium. These results bolster confidence that a super-caring, supernatural Creator started and sustains the universe.
