Although astronomers who accept the billions-of-years view of the universe’s age believe stars are still forming, they do not actually know how. They believe swirling hydrogen gas cools and condenses until it is dense enough to possess enough gravity to prevent re-expansion. The truth is astronomers have never actually observed the birth of a single star.
Even though God ceased creating on Day Six, we occasionally see islands, mountains, rivers, and canyons form today. Could stars occasionally form in a similar manner today? God could have made gas clouds already in the process of collapse to form stars, or God could have ordained processes whereby stars occasionally form.
In past generations, telling time by the stars was an essential part of life. It is really pretty easy to do. You can even roughly estimate the time by eye, as long as you don’t need high precision.
Some stars burn so brightly that they should soon run out of fuel, while others are relatively cold and would seem to last forever. One type of star in particular—the blue star—is a big problem if you assume the universe came into being 13.7 billion years ago.
Among the kaleidoscope of stars, brilliant blue stars are of special interest.
The properties of stars do not suggest an evolutionary origin.
There have been many attempts to explain the Christmas Star scientifically, and three will be mentioned here.
People have always been fascinated by the stars and many have tried to count them.
The Hubble telescope has recently taken some spectacular pictures of stars forming. Doesn't this prove that stars were not created? No, it doesn't.
Answers in Genesis is an apologetics ministry, dedicated to helping Christians defend their faith and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively.
