  • Cosmic Cool Down - What Does It Mean?

    Not one but five writers of Scripture describe God’s “stretching out” of the heavens. From a scientist’s perspective, these ancient writers predict the twentieth-century … more

  • Facing Up to Big Bang Challenges

    What danger lurks in associating big bang cosmology with biblical cosmology? Most Christian physicists, astronomers, and other scientists would say, “None.” Many Christian philosophers, … more

  • Cosmic Acceleration Narrows Life's Time Window

    Recent discoveries about the universes expansion rate significantly impact the case for divine design. Past research revealed that only after a certain period of expansion would the universe be ready … more

  • How Far Tells How Old

    The strength of cosmologists’ model for the origin and development of the universe rests in part on the certainty of astronomers’ distance measurements to stars and galaxies. The only … more

  • Big Bang—The Bible Taught It First!

    While it is true that they were the first (1965) to detect the radiation left over from the creation event,1 they were not the first scientists to recognize that the universe expanded from an … more

    Though Christians sometimes mistake relativity (a physics term) for relativism (a philosophical term), relativity powerfully testifies of divine creation.1 How? Einstein’s theory of general … more

  • Einstein Exonerated in Breakthrough Discovery

    This discovery yields what may be the most profound evidence to date for divine design of the cosmos.1

    Einstein’s cosmological constant, once widely ridiculed, represents an anti-gravity … more

  • Another Success for General Relativity

    Anyone who has read either technical or non-technical books about twentieth-century developments in physics knows the significance of general relativity. As I seek to explain in The Creator and the … more
