Big Bang Backpedaling

The big bang model relies on a hypothetical event known as cosmic inflation, when the universe supposedly expanded faster than light. Last year, a team of astronomers presented what they deemed direct evidence of this cosmic inflation. It made for big news in the media.1 But a few months later, the same researchers retracted their claim. They admitted that their evidence of inflation was actually just the effect of dust within our own galaxy. This finding, however, hardly received a whimper in the media.2

Such revised findings are not surprising for Bible-believers. The Bible teaches that the stars appeared after the earth, a sequence that directly contradicts the big bang.
