Origin of the Universe

  • 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

  • Predictive Power: Confirming Cosmic Creation

    Scientists focus enormous effort on turning detections (observations and measurements) into predictions. Meteorologists use data to predict temperatures, wind, and precipitation. Astronomers use data … more

  • Tolman's Elegant Test

    The cosmic characteristic most extensively described in the Bible is the ongoing expansion of the universe.1 No other holy book of the world's religions describes this feature, nor was it anticipated … more

  • Facing Up to Big Bang Challenges

    What danger lurks in associating big bang cosmology with biblical cosmology? Most Christian physicists, astronomers, and other scientists would say, “None.” Many Christian philosophers, … more

  • How Far Tells How Old

    The strength of cosmologists’ model for the origin and development of the universe rests in part on the certainty of astronomers’ distance measurements to stars and galaxies. The only … more

  • Big Bang—The Bible Taught It First!

    While it is true that they were the first (1965) to detect the radiation left over from the creation event,1 they were not the first scientists to recognize that the universe expanded from an … more

  • Big Bang Buttressed

    Belief that the universe was created a finite time ago by a transcendent Creator has been strengthened by evidence yet again. A new piece of astronomical research brings good news for Christians and … more

  • Relativity Reaffirms Creation Doctrine

    Though Christians sometimes mistake relativity (a physics term) for relativism (a philosophical term), relativity powerfully testifies of divine creation.1 How? Einstein’s theory of general … more

  • Einstein Exonerated in Breakthrough Discovery

    This discovery yields what may be the most profound evidence to date for divine design of the cosmos.1

    Einstein’s cosmological constant, once widely ridiculed, represents an anti-gravity … more

  • Another Success for General Relativity

    Anyone who has read either technical or non-technical books about twentieth-century developments in physics knows the significance of general relativity. As I seek to explain in The Creator and the … more

  • New Astronomical Proofs for the Existence of God

    "It really does matter, and matters very much, how we think about the cosmos," declares historian and college president Dr. George Roche. Immanual Kant, for example, posited an infinitely old and … more
