Astronomers have discovered what news outlets have dubbed a “super-mom.” It’s a massive galaxy that some scientists claim creates over seven hundred stars each year. But are scientists actually observing stellar birth, or is this an inference from other observations?
Here’s the answer. This galaxy is more than five billion light years away. At that distance, a scientist can’t directly observe any individual stars, much less see new ones come into existence. According to creation astronomer Danny Faulkner, what astronomers actually noticed was an unusually bright x-ray glow from this galaxy. Because of their evolutionary beliefs, secular scientists assume only a star-making galaxy could produce this glow.
No scientist has ever actually observed a new star forming, and there is no proof that stars are still forming today. Most theories of stellar birth are highly speculative and arise out of a need to explain the universe without God. At present, all attempts to model star evolution work only if some stars already exist to fuel the creation of new stars!
Only one source can create stars out of nothing. There’s no getting around the truth of Genesis 1:16: “Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also.”
