Galaxy Design

  • Rare Solar System Location

    The solar system’s current position (in between two nearby exceptionally symmetrical and widely separated spiral arms that are devoid of any significant spurs or feathers) keeps the solar … more

  • Where Did Earth Get Its Phosphorus?

    Phosphates serve as the backbone for all nucleic acids and are the major repository of chemical energy for metabolism. The human body contains about 11,000 parts per million of phosphorus by weight. … more

  • Too Much Sulfur

    Sulfur plays a crucial role in life chemistry. This fact became personal for me a year ago when I was diagnosed as sulfur deficient. Many protein functions crucially depend on sulfur. Fortunately, … more

  • Why Jupiter and Saturn Have No Twins

    Likewise, the discovery of over 300 extrasolar gas giant planets combined with spacecraft missions to explore the outer solar system is beginning to establish the rare gas giant planet system … more

  • Photosynthesis Is Not Enough

    This event occurred approximately 2.4 billion years ago. The oxygen content of Earth’s atmosphere rose from just one thousandth of a percent (10-5) of its present level (about 21 percent of the … more

  • Milky Way Galaxy’s Tiny Black Hole

    The latest and most definitive measurement puts the mass of that black hole at 3,600,000 times the mass of the Sun.1

    The Milky Way Galaxy’s central black hole by itself is not dangerous to … more

  • Design of the Solar System’s Gas Giants

    The masses and orbits of the solar system’s four gas giant planets are crucial for life on planet Earth. Without the gas giant planets, Earth would suffer from frequent life-destructive … more

  • Galaxy Morphology and Structure Design

    The proper terminology is to say that someone is not tall enough for his or her weight. This description illustrates the difference between morphology and structure. A person’s rotundity is an … more

  • Most Accurate Distances Shore Up Creation History

    Opponents of big bang cosmology, both atheists and young-earth creationists, frequently attempt to push aside very compelling and overwhelming physical evidence in favor of this biblically predicted … more

  • Strangulation Efficiency in Galaxy Clusters

    Kawata and Mulchaey’s discovery arose from a detailed chemodynamical simulation of how neighboring galaxies and gas clouds impact the star formation history of a disk galaxy.1 (All spiral … more

  • White Dwarfs Deliver Better Creation History

    A window that enables astronomers to rigorously test the biblically predicted big bang creation model. 1Thanks to a new set of measurements on burnt out stars—known as white dwarfs—that … more

  • Filling the Gap

    Based on his observation that clusters of galaxies do not have enough matter to remain gravitationally bound, Fritz Zwicky proposed (in 1933) the existence of dark matter to provide the needed … more

  • Planet Migration Tests Solar System Design

    Astronomers have discovered over 250 planets outside of our solar system residing in over 200 different planetary systems. However, all of these extrasolar planets exhibit characteristics that would … more

  • The Milky Way: An Exceptional Galaxy

    The discovery of about 250 extrasolar planets, combined with spacecraft missions to explore the outer solar system, likewise is beginning to establish the rare solar system doctrine. Now, a new … more

  • Galaxy Begins Star Formation Late

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    Scientists have identified a peculiar galaxy that provides additional evidence of a galaxy’s environment and mass in order to form a … more

  • Importance of Galaxy Cluster Environment

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    Astronomers have found more evidence of fine-tuning in the location of the Milky Way Galaxy (MWG), where Earth resides. By determining the … more

  • No Nearby Supernovae During Human History

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for Reference information

    Detailed analysis of ice cores reveals more evidence consistent with the work of a super-caring Creator preparing a supportive environment for life. … more

  • Spiral Galaxies are Disappearing

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    Astronomers continue to find evidence supporting an important premise of RTB’s creation model, namely that the universe will be habitable by … more

  • Spiral Galaxies: Too Frayed for Life?

    Spiral galaxies are like people: they fray as they age. As people gradually sag and wrinkle, so too a young galaxy's elegant spiral structure frays into myriad substructures-spurs, feathers, and … more
