  • Gravitational Lens Test for Creation

    Yet multiple Bible passages1 described this cosmic feature—making a bold scientific prediction—more than 2,400 years previous to its discovery.

    While astronomers have developed many tests … more

  • The Difficulties of Testing String Theory

    “Test everything. Hold on to the good.” This biblical passage underscores a central principle of the scientific enterprise. Any successful model must undergo testing that will either … more

  • Thoughts on the Big Bang

    Controversy surrounds the big bang theory in both the scientific community and the Christian community. Some scientists reject it because it makes the universe “too young” (for evolution), … more

  • General Relavity Passes Another Test

    Part of my attraction to gamma-ray astronomy relates to the types of objects it observes. My graduate research focused on an object called Markarian 421. It is an active galactic nucleus (AGN) located … more

  • How Does WMAP Continue to Produce New Results?

    “Still going….Nothing outlasts the Energizer.” Almost anyone who has watched TV in the last decade is familiar with the Energizer Bunny. The bunny continues to pound away without … more

  • Dark Matter Ropes Confirm Big Bang Cosmology

    Dark matter and dark energy. Together they compose over 95% of the stuff in the universe. Observations conclusively demonstrate that both exist. Yet scientists have little idea what they actually are. … more

  • Design Feature Prevents Hard Snowball Earth

    Imagine the Antarctic glaciers extending over the whole Earth. Dating back to the early 1960s, scientists proposed just such a scenario, known as a “snowball Earth” hypotheses to explain … more

  • Signpost of Unification Found?

    Scientists seek to discover a discover fundamental theory underlying all natural phenomena, including the four basic forces of in nature: the electromagnetic force, the gravitational force, and the … more

  • Earth Just Barely Large Enough

    As I discussed two weeks ago, Venus and Earth are remarkably similar in terms of their size and composition. Both probably started out with large oceans of water. While Earth continues to maintain a … more

  • Multiverse Musings - The Beginning

    The cosmological and teleological arguments represent the two strongest evidences (with scientific relevance) in support of the Christian God. Obviously, the multiverse models impact these two … more

  • Dwarf Galaxy Test of Big Bang Cosmology

    The big bang creation event— as taught by the Bible for centuries1— now stands well established by astronomers’ observations of the universe.2This observational evidence shows that … more

  • Big Bang or Big Goof?

    Source: "Big Bang or Big Goof? Astronomer Challenges 'Seeds' Proof" from Wired magazine. Based on research by Gerrit Verschuur published in the Astronomical Journal, December 10, 2007. … more

  • Birth Date of Old Star Confirms Universe's Age

    Most of us have received a bit of information at one time or another that seemed too bizarre to be true. If we hear the information from only one source, skepticism is the appropriate response. … more

  • Cosmological Parameter Measurements Agree

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    The latest results from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) buttress RTB’s cosmic creation model. Using a large sample of red galaxies … more

  • No Water Found on Extrasolar Planet

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    The first-ever spectral measurement of an extrasolar planet affirms the uniqueness and design of the solar system and the only known habitable … more

  • Common Cause for an Important Cosmological Probe

    TNRTB Archive - Retain for reference information

    A team of international scientists has helped establish the reliability of an important cosmological probe that also supports the validity of … more
