The Astronomy of the Bible Has Proven Accurate

It is not commonly known that many of the Bible’s statements about astronomy went against the generally accepted teachings of the time. Modern science, however, has confirmed what the Bible has taught. As in all things, the Bible is absolutely correct when it teaches about the universe.

Was There a Big Bang?

Some professing Christians accept the claim that God used naturalistic processes, including the big bang, to create the universe. Unfortunately, such views deny what the Creator Himself has said about the creation of the universe.

The Origin of the Solar System

There are many problems with the naturalistic explanations of the formation of our solar system. Because the naturalistic ideas are not based on the foundation of God’s perfect Word, they fall short. Will you trust God’s Word or man’s reasoning when it comes to the formation of the solar system?

What About Distant Starlight?

Creationists have good models accounting for why we see distant starlight so “soon” after creation—models that avoid problematic atheistic assumptions (e.g., the Copernican principle) and explain the divine origin of the cosmos.

Some Strange Astronomy Claims

Christians should uphold the highest standards of excellence in their science, questioning all quirky claims and avoiding hasty conclusions, such as the examples described in this article.
