    Studies of the temperatures of neutron stars provide more evidence that the laws of physics are constant, as predicted by the Bible (see Jeremiah … more

  • More Precise Measurement of Fine Structure Constant

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    Continued testing reveals the sound basis for understanding how the quantum world (a part of RTB's biblical creation model) works. One piece of the … more

  • Tighter Constraints on Varying Constants

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    New laboratory measurements will strengthen RTB’s cosmic creation model by providing tighter constraints on variability in the fine-structure … more

    Jet Propulsion Laboratory physicists have found stronger evidence that supports the biblically predicted cosmic singularity beginning and the … more

  • Speed of Gravity Measured, Scripture Validated

    General relativity and the biblical creation model received yet another boost on January 8, 2003, at the 201st meeting of the American Astronomical Society. The boost came from an announcement of the … more

  • WMAP Offers Spectacular Proof of Creation Events

    Preliminary results from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) have stirred great excitement among physicists.1 Radiometers on board the satellite are sending NASA researchers by far the … more

  • Cosmic Brane Scans

    As physicians use scanning devices to view the hidden structures and activities of the brain, astronomers can now use distant supernovae and high-resolution cosmic background radiation maps to scan … more

  • Missing Solar Neutrinos Found

    What makes the Sun shine? Where does Earth’s life-sustaining radiation originate? Astronomers answered these questions in part with the discovery of nuclear fusion, the same process that powers … more

  • Anthropic Principle: A Precise Plan for Humanity

    Human beings climb. Always have, always will. First hills, then mountains, then pinnacles so high they're called "death zones." That's as high as legs could carry them, but not high enough. So people … more

  • The Physics of Sin

    "I never loved my wife. Don't I deserve to be happy?" "I needed that money more than he did, so it's okay that I took it. Besides, he owes me for the time when…" Justification for sin comes … more

  • Black Holes, Singularities, and Wormholes

    From a realistic rather than science fiction perspective, the wormhole question is moot. Since black holes are relatively rare, the probability that the singularities of two spatially distant black … more
