  • A Carbon-14 Coincidence

    A few weeks back I mentioned the benefits to scientific discovery provided by this coincidence. By using it, astronomers learned about the Sun’s corona, were able to test Einstein’s … more

  • A Major Test for Relativity

    It isn’t often that a scientist correctly predicts something that will occur within less than two years in a galaxy 3.5 billion light-years away. Yet that’s what Finnish physicist Mauri … 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

  • Black Holes Provide More Evidence for Strings

    The significance of string theory is that if it or some other multi-space-dimensional theory of physics accurately describes physical reality, then religions that insist on a doctrinal construct of … 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

  • Trying to See Dark

    Is dark just the absence of light, or does it have some substance? If so, how could you detect it? How dark really is dark? Is there a way to build a “dark bulb” so that when you turn it … more

  • Multifaceted Design of the Strong Nuclear Force

    There is a just-right separation distance between them to foster the best possible chemistry. Put them either too close or too far apart and their capacity to interact with one another will sharply … more

  • Fine-Tuned Quantum Correlations

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    Theoretical calculations identify more fine-tuning in the universe, consistent with the notion of a supernatural Creator making a universe capable … more

  • Odd Molecule Shows Design

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    An astrophysically necessary but chemically odd molecule (H3+) reveals fine-tuning. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, with H2 … more

  • New Technique to Probe Gravity

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    A team of Italian physicists has developed a new tool that can be used to test how well RTB’s creation model describes gravity. While … 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

  • Gamma-ray Burst Sources Revealed

    TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

    Observations by a team of international astronomers give insight into the nature of short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and reveal a tool to further … more
