Einstein / Relativity

  • General Relativity Wins an Old Debate

    Isaac Newton’s most highly regarded scientific publication is his three-volume work Principia. In it, he powerfully demonstrated that the motions of the heavens operated according to the same … more

  • Double Pulsar Tests General Relativity

    My graduate research focused on detecting extremely energetic gamma rays from astronomical objects. Using an arbitrary set of units, if the light from a standard incandescent bulb has the energy of … more

  • Coincidence Provides a Tool

    In their book The Privileged Planet, authors Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay Richards call attention to the remarkable coincidence between the apparent size of the Moon and the Sun in the sky (as seen from … more

  • Where Is the Cosmic Density Fine-Tuning?

    This word picture helps to demonstrate a number used to quantify that fine-tuning, namely 1 part in 1060. Compared to the total mass of the observable universe, 1 part in 1060 works out to about a … more

  • Beginning and End of Cosmology

    Study of the brightest galaxies in the universe persuaded astronomers that 99 percent of the matter in the universe was dark. And measurements of the brightest stars convinced astronomers that three … more

  • Extending the Reach of Cosmic Creation Measures

    Continual cosmic expansion under fixed physical laws from an actual beginning of matter, energy, space, and time is the heart and soul of the biblical cosmic creation model. Moreover, the physical … more

  • Einstein Passes a Probing Test

    Few theories have undergone testing as thoroughly as Einstein’s theory of general relativity and come through with such flying colors. But, of course, for a theory that has such far-reaching … more

  • Another Test of General Relativity

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    A team of Japanese scientists has developed a new way to test general relativity, specifically its predictions regarding black holes. General … more

  • General Relativity Passes Yet Another Test

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    RTB's biblical creation model received a substantial confirmation as general relativity passed with flying colors one of the toughest tests yet … more

  • New Test of Gravity Waves from Supernovae

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    A team of international astronomers has developed a new model—with implications for RTB’s creation model—to predict the emission … more

  • General Relativity Passes Another Test

    TNRT Archive - Retained for reference information

    RTB’s cosmic creation model has gained additional support as general relativity passed another test. General relativity predicts that as two … 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
