Comets—They’re Young

The Heavens Declare

This is Ken Ham, and our full-size Noah’s Ark is now open in Northern Kentucky.


Comets are balls of dust and ice that orbit the sun. Now when they pass close by the sun, solar radiation blasts part of the comet away. And this forms a beautiful “tail.”

Because a comet loses material with each orbit, they can’t last very long. Yet our universe is filled with comets.

To explain why there are still comets after supposedly billions of years, evolutionists appeal to an imaginary area of space called the “Oort Cloud.”

You know that there is no evidence that such a place even exists or that it makes new comets. Yet secular astronomers are confident it must be there because it is difficult to explain comets otherwise.

Comets—they are are only thousands of years old.
